Divide by Null - undefined

Infinitesimals

Voicemail has its uses, for example, when one won't be able to pick up the phone for awhile, but needs to relay a message immediately, or when other forms of communication are not possible, i.e. e-mail or texting is inconvenient or irrelevant.

However, I still usually end up ignoring it, thus rendering most of the pros as moot.

On the subject of high school friends, just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Pi is wrong.

Well, actually, maybe it would just be better to use what is currently known as 2*pi. I've always thought it would be easier if sine and cosine had periods that were just pi, not 2pi.

So should pi be 6.283185...? Should pi be the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius, instead of diameter? If so, it would take about 50 years for this to gain any momentum in the mathematical community.

When I learned how to properly play Freecell, I was happy, though it was hard. Now it's starting to get out of hand, perhaps. I think I'm developing a Freecell Obsession.

This is only part of the story. On my old hard drive, I played over 300 games with a win rate of 75%.

UPDATE: Looks like I tried to take it too far...

So it's late now, and I'm tired, so why am I not asleep? I can't stop thinking about the future.

College is really close for me, and it will be a huge jump in a different direction. I'm excited for this new experience. I'm thinking about what I'll do, how I'll react, where I'll go, who I'll meet...

But there's one problem: That doesn't happen for another five months. That's a rather long time. I haven't even started AP exams yet. I just started spring break! What am I doing instead of rel...

Stop and Hear the Music

If ever you hear a street performer playing, listen.

Sure, it's a busy world, next appointment, another meeting, but try to take it slow for a few minutes to appreciate the music.

Likewise, the article is a long read, but worth it (in my opinion).
