It’s been knocking around in my head for a couple of years now, and, in all honesty, I’ve
decided realised that deep down, I decided some time ago that I’m an atheist!
It seems I can’t let one thought about religion or God waft around my mind without catching it in a butterfly net and pulling off its wings to see if there’s anything inside it that I can’t squish into goo.
Turns out that if you squish hard enough, it all does.
Only thing is – do I see myself as breaking away from a group, or joining another? Or neither? Or both?
This is more confusing than being agnostic..
I have spent almost the entirety of today reading about the ‘great sexist conspiracy of the development of the microwave’.
It is part of one of my modules looking at the ‘History and Philosophy of Science’. Module’s name is ‘Technology in the Modern World’. And today’s topic has been the issue of gender in the context of Technological progress.
- This has involved reading the writings of deranged women who believe that everything to do with the microwave – from purpose to distribution to use to domestic change it brings about – is deliberately conceived in a way that represses women and benefits men.
- It is
- a) Fucking ridiculous
- b) Stupid
- c) Only partly based on fact
- d) Hilarious
- But the weird thing is that I have loved it.
- I loved sitting there taking it all in.
- Don’t think many other people I know would.
- Good? Bad? Weird?
- I’m not sure but I think it means I’m different.
- And that’s never Ever completely a bad thing :-)
It’s been a very long time since I put blogging on hold – so I thought I’d give it another go! A quick status update: 1. I’m now in my first year of my University degree (again..) Find out more here 2. I’m working 9 hours a week for the Computer Help Company. I work at my desk in my room in my house with a glass of orange squash and a packet of cashew nuts. I normally work 3-6pm three weekdays a week.3. Still with Tash :)4. More to come I guess..
Coming home from Leeds yesterday, I noticed something.
Something I’ve seen many many times, but never really looked at before.
A ‘semi-fast’ train.
What the hell does that mean? I know in train terms it means that it was to go from Finchley road to Harrow on the Hill without stopping, but the phrase is so stupid!
Surely semi-fast just means ‘quick’, or ‘nippy’?
What a silly adjective ‘semi-fast’ is.
So, off to Uni next week (Whoah!)
People (mostly family and family friends) are asking me to commit to regular phone calls etc.
Likely? Not really…
So I’ve set up a seperate blog to chronicle my ramble through Uni, which they can all check!
Needless to say, it will contain nothing capable of leading to awkward conversations with readers, and anything ridiculously amazing will also be posted here!
But for now, I shall be putting much of my Uni-related news on http://joshualee.wordpress.com – enjoy! x
UPDATE: AAH! Realised the link about didn’t work! It does now… x
So my idea about eating small regular amounts of food instead of 3 meals a day is going… interestingly.
I managed it for an afternoon, and then had a big supper..!
If I’m honest, I still think it’s a fabulous idea if someone really wants to give it a go..
Meanwhile, my weight seems to have been affected – I now weigh just nine stone six… not great!
And interestingly, buying an £8 pair of primark jeans, I had to get them with a 34 inch inside leg – longer than I have normally bought!
Am I still growing? Only time will tell..!
The common practice is to eat three meals a day.
Once soon after awaking
Once between midday and 1.30pm
And Once between around 6 and 9pm
Yet we are always also being told that moderation to the extreme is the best way to stay healthy.
Thus I propose a test, I’ll do it, join me if you can..
Screw three meals a day, with propbable snacking in-between.
For the next few days, I’ll try to have something fairly small and healthy every 90minutes or so.
Updates will follow – good luck – may the moderation be with you…
