When It's Too Hot To Handle

You just have to remember...

When It's Too Hot To Handle
Serious Seats

It is funny the way we get caught up in the moment.

We try to view ourselves as beings with power.

"Gods perfection creation..."

I love how God has so many variations of "perfect".

It puts our behaviors at best.....imperfect.

Irrational even.

Imagine the following:

Hypothesis: If irrationality and intelligence are applied to an organism, they will conclude they are rational beings due to intelligence, ultimately ignoring their irrationality.

What an experiment that would be!

An intelligent organism

One that rises about the rest.

And as it becomes even more developed....

I can only imagine the distinction they of themselves to other organisms.

It is what Elliot Aronson refers to as Cognitive Dissonance.

To only accept the favorable knowledge suitable for their cause....

These intelligence organisms are surely falling into a pitfall.

They continue to accept what is necessary, never what is essential.

So how will these passionate irrational social animals realize their dissonance?

It may be the greatest dilemma of this time!

I truly believe the majority would take an eternity to realize.

If these beings truly are intelligent and rational....

Wouldn't their behavior be predicted?

They would live in a society where everything is predicted exactly...

Yet they do not,

So they deny their irrationality.....becoming "rational" in the moment.

Yet those who realized their moments as happily unpredicted...

they find irrationality as happiness at its core.

They look to all scenarios...

only to realize they will never now what comes next.

For they never know what an unpromised tomorrow can bring.

So to look into those terrifying moments and remember.

They are only there for a brief time.

They find their irraitonality....becoming the truly intellgent.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
