So I decided to rework the infrastructure of my website, cleaning out old files and deleting webpages that no longer exist or have value. Apparently I wrote about the aggression of people, and originally I wanted to tie it in with my August 9th, post. I wasn't able to finish it then, so I took the time to jog my memory regarding this post and somewhat complete it. Keep in mind this was mostly written during the summer around early August 2009.
At work we have counsellors who provide help to those that are experiencing mental and emotional difficulty in their lives. They publish a monthly newsletter that I skimmed over just last night and stumbled upon one of their columns on the aspects of parenting and rebellious children. The article briefly talked about bullying and how it snowballs into other conflicts. Although that may sound (not very) interesting to a lot of you, the article actually had a small piece on the significance of fear in people's lives. What is fear and why do we experience it?

Hopefully if time permits, I will be able to continue posting once a week if not once every other day. However, with university and other social activities, that's often not possible. In regards to the progress of the website, I wonder would providing a comment box be worthwhile to readers. Often I tell my friends I don't write because I want to be noticed, I write because I want this to be an outlet for my thoughts. Adding a comment box doesn't seem necessary to me, but I do enjoy the feedback if there are people actually reading this. Maybe I'll set one up for next time to see how it goes.
This thought occurred to me the other day. What is the significance of time? If there comes a day when we're all going to die, all that knowledge and studying becomes useless, doesn't it? The way I look at it, it's not about the fact that we will eventually die. That's basically saying don't do anything in life since it's not going to last. One way to look at it is to imagine what life would be if it lasted forever.

I haven't updated the website in a while, partly because of my laziness but mostly because of school and the transition from summer. It is unfortunate that I was unable to finish adding more features to the website before summer ended, but throughout school hopefully I will find time to add them.
With the arrival of another year of university, I find myself having trouble with the motivation to study and to jumpstart my courses. This year will be tougher than normal; I am taking five courses with the exception that one of them is somewhat easy (at least I hope so), which also reinforces the fact that I should be investing more time and energy into studying. So why can't I motivate myself and actually do it?

How often does one lose sleep over something important or even something irrelevant? Aside from the fact that you need sleep to maintain a healthy lifestyle (or so experts say), sleep provides a lot of different benefits to improve your physical and mental health. So why is it then that people lose sleep if it's so beneficial to them? I guess the simple answer would be that when they sleep, they start to think about what's happening in their life and in their surroundings, both good and bad..
Almost every day I spend half an hour to an hour lying awake on my bed, thinking about how I'm supposed to go to sleep. Some may say I have a sleeping disorder, but I've become so used to it that I consider it part of the process in which I sleep..

EDIT: Sorry I made the link to my previous post so you couldn't read the rest of this post. It is now fixed.
I've written about this previously, but then it occurred to me that maybe I'm not the only one going through this. I don't know how many of you have heard of a "Quarter-life Crisis", but it's similar to a Mid-life crisis, only cut in half again so you get a quarter-life crisis. I know I'm not 25 yet (of 100), but technically the 2002 Statistics Canada chart shows life expectancy for males to be on average 77 years. Since it's 2009 I'm going to assume that the health conditions in Canada rose rather than fell, so we can estimate let's say, another 1-2 additional years on the average (let's hope anyway). 77+1, that brings the average life expectancy to 78. If we calculate the quarter-life of age 80 (Iím rounding it up) we arrive at age 20, which means I passed the normal time to be having a quarter-life crisis.
Statistics show only 10% adults experience a mid-life crisis. This leads me to believe that I am messed up. No but really..
[10/07/2009] *NEW!* The Archives Section of my website is up and running! And OMG! A Guestbook to sign.
[10/05/2009] Apparently webs.com (my host) is having to deal with rising costs, so they're putting the ol' banner on my website. Unfortunately one of the drawbacks of a free web host.
[08/17/2009] Background layers on the various blog posts! Try hovering over them to check it out!
[08/12/2009] Try the new "Greyscale" layout at the top, it may be easier on the eyes!
[07/20/2009] The Archive and About myself sections are somewhat broken, they still function but need updating (such as the headers). Oh noes!
