A winner’s stepping stone: A lesson from cross country

“The master has failed more times than the student has tried.” – Stephen Craine I’ve come to observe that failure is not the opposite of success. Yes, it can contradict success at times. Such as failing to get the girl you flirted with; or losing a big match. Failure is not the opposite of success,Continue reading “A winner’s stepping stone: A lesson from cross country”

Looking At Perspective: An assessment of egocentricity, ethnocentricity, and altruism

I’ve found myself wanting to define these terms, but I consider it rather difficult to find something that makes this topic not come off as a dry piece of prose. I’ll attempt to stay on my toes to ensure I’m keeping my readers entertained enough to continue reading. These terms are fun for me becauseContinue reading “Looking At Perspective: An assessment of egocentricity, ethnocentricity, and altruism”

“Observation creates reality”: Assessing a cat, a splash of Einstein, an arrow, and a seemingly sensing photon

As I listen to our podcast to find quotes to make some kind of meme out of, I stumbled across an interesting topic Rob, Tina, and I were covering. It was a discussion about perception and if perception creates reality (I oversimplify), and I dribbled out a perspective about Schrödinger’s Cat. I wanted to shareContinue reading ““Observation creates reality”: Assessing a cat, a splash of Einstein, an arrow, and a seemingly sensing photon”

Rhythm and Poetry: Assessing the semantics of profanity (ha I spelled ass)

I think my topics often come off super fucken heavy, and I realize that this makes my blog tone somewhat pretentious; especially with the vocabulary that I use. It truly is difficult to illustrate a complex thought with non-complex words… if my thoughts could even be perceived as complex (they are in my perspective). SoContinue reading “Rhythm and Poetry: Assessing the semantics of profanity (ha I spelled ass)”

Virtue Signaling: assessing euphemisms and dysphemisms

“Netflix and Chill” implies and alludes to more than hanging out while watching an episode of Black Mirror. Such implications make it safe to label “Netflix and Chill” as a euphemism of “have sex.” Growing up, I’ve heard a lot of things labeled as a euphemism; and with some kind of Freudian undertone, the onesContinue reading “Virtue Signaling: assessing euphemisms and dysphemisms”

Pandemic to Podcast

Podcasts and blogs are like bacon and eggs. Spaghetti and meatballs. Wine and cheese. Rob here, co-host of The Psyche-Delic Podcast. With my first blog attempt (in my whole life), I will do my best to pay tribute to these notorious complimentary duos whilst trying to suppress your urge to add on to your alreadyContinue reading “Pandemic to Podcast”

Where do you draw the line? A thought on statues

In a further attempt to celebrate my team’s podcast’s, The Psyche-Delic Podcast, placement into Apple’s podcast charts, I wanted to do a two part blog. One I wrote about D&D and this one. I think we are known for being a podcast that is good at covering current contentious topics and talk about such thingsContinue reading “Where do you draw the line? A thought on statues”
