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.

Planning for the Present

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 relaxing for two weeks? Getting myself excited over something that I have to wait a few months for.

It's a good idea to plan ahead to make sure the future is good, but I'm not just planning ahead right now. I haven't even accepted admission yet and I'm already thinking about what sort of dorm I want to stay in. This has happened before: I plan way too far ahead, in a game, for example, and I end up stopping short, getting diverted from the original plan, or otherwise changing my mind. Either way I waste time with planning the way I do.

So what happens when I get close or past where I planned? I continue the process, planning ahead another time interval to make sure I succeed again. I never really enjoy the present as I should, never stopping to relax, or think about what I currently have (without thinking about what I could have...)

Don't focus too much on the future. Make sure to enjoy the present. After all, you never live in the future, and you always live right now.
