Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
Subconscious mind is really powerful, and even more creative then the conscious mind. It was able to come up with an idea last night while I was asleep. It showed me a retarded creature swimming in water all hair and happy. I for some reason crushed it and drowned it underneath water. A part of myself was devastated at what I had done, and so he said, 'Now you will taste death and non existence.' I welcomed this and went straight into the furnace. My body started to vibrate, and at the last…Continue

This semester has certainly tested me. I started off with four classes and ended up dropping the computer class to ease my work load. As of right now I am getting an A in my creative writing class, a B in my public speaking class, and another B in my paralegal studies course. As much as I scrutinize myself for the two B's, overall I think I'm doing very well considering the amount of stress I have been under.
I am definitely ready for this semester to be over. I already have…Continue
I thought about it. I like writing, I like socializing with people, I like giving others advice, I like learning myself, and I like teaching other people about things. Even though my ideas are still young, and there is a lot for me to know, I would like to be a teacher. No not high school, or elementary school teacher, but maybe that is possible. I just don't want to be limited on what I teach. I want more flexibility to be allowed to take a creative approach to teaching. I don't want to…Continue
Check out this legendary interview, doesn’t he just nail it? Russell Brand has just guest-edited a special revolution-themed edition for The New Statesman, featuring contributions by: Oliver Stone, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Noel Gallagher, Alec Baldwin, David Lynch and others.
Read Russell’s own manifesto for revolution: READ MANIFESTO…
I finally got the first of two major speeches out of the way. My topic for both speeches is "Are Americans really free?" I went over three main points in my speech; our compulsory authoritarian education system, media consolidation as a means of control, and finally, the threat of an oppressive government in post 9/11 America.
I do think I could have done a better job with preparing, but overall I think I did OK. I just can't wait to dive into the persuasive speech project…Continue
I have been under a lot of pressure in school. I think this has a good and bad side to it. On one hand it can be a motivational factor to do well and so far, I have done just that, with an A in my creative writing class and a B in my public speaking class, as well as the intro to paralegal course. However, this pressure has led me to be pretty overwhelmed as I'm finishing up my research and writing up an outline for my first major speech due Tuesday.Because of all this work, I will be off…Continue
I don't like Reality TV. I find it very annoying and frustrating. A TV show for watching people's triumphs, failures, arguments, discussions, breakdowns, joy, excitement, sorrow, etc with some elements of competition just turns me off. Too much emotion and not enough ideas, information and learning.
Today I consciously realized that I can watch live people chat here on Ipower without chatting myself. Just happy to observe a good conversation and learn some stuff from it.…Continue
1. Full metal Alchemist Brotherhood
2. Grave of the fireflies

It's really funny.
Paul McCartney is my favorite Beatle, something I have in common with the late Kurt Cobain. Like Kurt, I admire his work, his musical sensibilities, his total optimism, and the way he handles himself. But again, like Kurt, its Lennon that I relate to, understand. Its Lennon who decimates me with his art.
Today would have been John's 73rd birthday. Most people celebrate his life on the day he died, but how fucked up is that? This was the day he came into the…Continue

It's a cold, rainy afternoon. I wanted to be cheered up. So here's my top ten songs...up until now. They change periodically, but this list has been pretty solid and steady for quite some time now. Many of them have to do with alienation or love. A few of them, both.
Hope you like these. If not, I really don't care. :D

A live albums is a great snippit of a live show. Either you were there and you want to remember, or you weren't and still want to hear the show...either way, a great live album is a thing of beauty.
Still, not all live albums are special. Most of the best ones are the best because they brought something new to the game...changed the landscape...increased their exposure. If I was making a list of my favorite live albums, it would be different than this one in that I'm also taking into…Continue

It is tired of learning how to live. It is time to just live. Here are the tips I am going to throw out there. Basically this is me squeezing out the spiritual/self development knowledge and making room for new type of knowledge. This isn't going to be some high quality blog. Just writing these tips, so I can stop thinking about them. Have record about them. Forget them.
1. Your thoughts are real. They manifest into words, which in turn manifest into action, which creates objects,…Continue

Midterm is fast approaching in school and so far I'm getting a 97% in my creative writing class, 96% in intro to paralegal, 86% in public speaking, and finally, the class that is giving me a lot more trouble than it should, the intro to microcomputers class at 71%. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with where I'm at so far, but I know there is room for improvement.
I have been able to practice more on my bass guitar and I'm really having fun with the challenge that offers me. I…Continue
Glee premiered last night. And you don't have to a be a fan or anything, but noticeably absent from the cast was Finn Hudson, played by Cory Monteith. Monteith passed away this past summer from a heroin overdose, an addiction he struggled with for over 10 years.
I know many people feel that addiction is a weakness and that those who die from it are asking for it. But there are several different kinds of addicts out there and there are several reasons why a person could become an…Continue
This program is essentially like what JARVIS is in "Iron man" and I thought that some people would like it. This is the link to the video with the explanation and download:
Hope you guys enjoy! :D
P.S. You need to be able to open a .rar file to download it and I used the 40 day free trial on winrar (since I didn't know what a .rar file was, maybe I'm just…Continue

Here are my goals for future, and present moment.
1. Open a Social Club: That has a gym, game/room, coffee shop/library, weight training room, self development room, and music/movie room. I can start small, and then expand it as it grows. Basically this will be like a library where people can come and meet each other in real life. There is lack of social contact because of technology, and I want to use technology to bring people together.... By the End of my 32…Continue
I'm relatively new to hip hop or rap, whatever the fuck you want to call it. I grew up a classic rock fan, with HEAVY emphasis on Paul McCartney and his three amigos, John, George, and Ringo. But, one day, I realized that disliking ANY music based on the fact that I like one genre the more than others is a silly way of looking at things. I was the reason I was missing out. So that was enough for me to change that...look into other music...discover all over again.
So without further…Continue

I am not a mathematician or a physicist, let me get that out there right away, what I do have is a good imagination(I think!).
I realise that the following will probably be scoffed at by many intelligent people. I am willing to look foolish however as I would dread to think that these musings of mine were actually of some use and I took them to the grave(not that I intend or wish to re-disperse any time soon!)
I have two theories, of which I am willing to accept may…Continue
Self - Dev Challenges.
Hi there, I wanted so present an idea/concept to you that I tried out for two months now.
I am sue many of you try to challenge themselves very often for self dev purposes. Normally the procedure looks more or less like this:
This never worked for me. I did make a goal, e.g. eat less for a…Continue
