It was fun up to a certain point. Pretty much like solving a jigsaw puzzle. Too bad that I wasn't anyhow talented and have lost most of what I learnt.

It still boggles my mind that I was learning division and multiplication and such fairly early in elementary school... and yet never got further than algebra in the rest of school. Seriously? What was I doing all that time?  ???

I'm having a job interview tomorrow afternoon. A bit anxious over it despite the fact that I shouldn't have anything to worry about. Hopefully I get to sleep tonight instead of just rolling in my bed as I've had some minor troubles with getting to sleep lately.

I hate seeing my two African Dwarf Frogs mating in their tank virtually all-day every day. It's very frustrating knowing that they're getting more action than I am (which is nothing).
Until I see the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, I will not believe.

I suppose it's better than putting two bullfrogs in the same tank and watching one eat the other.

My grandmother's brother to the far right making me proud...the coolest guy in the family to me who I hope to be just like when I grow up. Amidst a family of uneducated, broke Mexicans, he acquired a PhD and became a nuclear scientist, inspiring me to believe that I can be whatever I want to be when I grow up. He's also a convert to Greek Orthodoxy, having converted against the wishes of his family, kinda foreshadowing what I would go on to do.



I'm very bummed that he's going to be dying in a few months :(

I don't know, possibly; he has stage 4 cancer and had to have his stomach removed. I wouldn't be surprised if he did. He's only like 62 years old.

Lord have mercy. 62 is quite young.

We have a Greek Orthodox shrine to St. Nectarios here in West Covina, California. They can send oil. Many miracles involving cancer have occurred. I also venerated the rib of St. Nectarios. I had cancer and I have been in remission since 2000.

More like we have great hardware, but the proprietary software keeps getting infected with viruses, so it has to be constantly disinfected or it will become corrupted.
Are you content with just being an intelligent hairless ape that just cannot resist the primitive urge to fling poo at people passing by,  just like a monkey in the zoo ?

Do you stay in the field and do the work that you accepted, or do you continuously run back into town and give people black eyes, or maybe push them down the stairs, because they don't do what you do ?

In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ
