Strangers – Just Friends You Haven’t Met Yet

Often, we don’t want to make eye contact, talk to, or do anything with someone we don’t know. The thing is, these strangers are just friends who we haven’t yet met.

While there are some things that we should avoid in life, I don’t believe people should be one of them. Reaching out is how we meet our closest friends and loved ones, come across new job opportunities, and most of all, have fun.

Happy New Year, everyone. Do not wish for this year to go well, make this year go well. You’re in charge of your life, after all!

The Beauty of Math

“When will we ever use this in real life?” asked the math students.

Well, everywhere and forever. Mathematicians did not create equations, they discovered them. They were already there, and we just happened to stumble upon them through intelligent, ceaseless effort. Makes you think a little, doesn’t it?

Slime Mold Solves Maze – Intelligence?

Hello everyone!
This is Laura here, I’ve been back at home from Hawaii for a few weeks now. I’ve just been so busy that I haven’t had time to update the blog.
Joan and I are in college now, and we have to focus much more on schoolwork. That means putting in every bit of effort that we can, to make sure that our dollars don’t go to waste. From this point on, we’ll be posting once a week on MONDAYS!

This video was posted by a friend of mine on Facebook – it’s pretty nuts. See why slime mold is so flippin’ cool! Does this make you rethink intelligence? When a single celled organism can, with no mistakes, find its way through a maze, choose healthy food, and explore an area? What makes humans, dolphins, dogs, cats, etc. intelligent?

Love, Laura

Midway

A small island of Midway, mostly known for the Battle of Midway, is also home to thousands of albatross. See how our everyday habits of using plastic transforms the health of the oceans and its dependents.

Chris Jordan came to my high school a year ago. I was able to talk to him personally. Of course, I was bawling when I was, but that’s okay. That’s the point! If you want to help him out, donate here (http://midwayfilm.com/donate.html) AND do your part to reduce, reuse and recycle.
