One of the most inspirational things to me is creative writing. If you are the same way or looking for something new, check out my Creative Writing class’s new tumblr! It is wordsfromnerds.tumblr.com. We will be updating approximately once a week with a new poem or flash fiction story.
Hey! Amanda here.
I am so sorry that it has been so long. I think about this all the time, but between work and, well, work I have issues taking the time to post. This is just going to be a short post today, but I am working on another one right now it is just not finished yet.
On to the topic. This might sound like I am repeating myself, but I listened to a speech by the Science Guy himself, Bill Nye, tonight. It was amazingly inspiring because he spoke on all of my passions: Science, Green living, Innovation, and Inspiration. The main theme was “Let’s Change the World.”
We are on th brink of a new world and new discoveries. Lets be a part of it and create a new and better world! It is time to move away from the past, inefficient ways and move towards a world of “doing more with less.”
If you have a good idea, do it! You don’t have to be an engineer to solve problems. Become educated, vote, and CHANGE THE WORLD!!
“A man has made at least a start at discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.”-David Elton Trueblood
Its amazing what inspiration you find around campus when you simply open your eyes.
This is my first post so I will first introduce myself. I am a first year Georgia Tech student studying Chemical Engineering. My true passions are music, art, writing, and the Earth. Correlation? I think not. But my passions are the few things that will get me through my next 4…5…or 6 years here at Tech.
My goal through this tumblr is to write about making a change in our world. I will post about pretty much any topic that inspires me on that day. It is my hope that someone will read this and make a change in their life for the better. I believe that we can all make a difference and if we all work together towards moving the world forward than this world can be a much better place. I subscribe to the mustard seed philosophy that if we plant a small mustard seed of kindness, it can grow into a large, lovely plant of joy. Ok that sounded really lame, but you get the picture. If not, see Matthew 13:31-32. Now before you sign off this because you think it will be a preaching blog, it won’t be. I might explore some topics, but it is not my job to preach because I am still learning and do not have the authority to think what I believe is the truth.
What is truth, and understanding of ideas will probably be one of my more frequently explored topics mostly because it is something that I am passionate about. My closest guess is explained in the Bright Eyes song, “Four Winds”: ” The Bible’s blind, the Torah’s Deaf, the Qur’an is mute. If you burned them all together you’d be close to the truth” meaning that if we put our differences aside and see what is going on, listen to each other, and speak out we would all live more peacefully.
Here are some topics I might explore:
-Tolerance v.s understanding
-Caring for the planet
-and many more…
But all of these will be geared towards understanding of others views. If you do not agree with some of my opinions, please feel free to comment and I might address it in my next post. But please do not be mean because the overall goal is to put my ideas out there. This is not geared towards any specific groups as I try to be as moderate as possible because I want us to enter a world of knowledge driven decisions. Even as George Washington said in his farewell address,
“All obstructions to eh execution of the Laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, and real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive to the fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency.”
Therefore I will never alienate any political party and never claim a party affiliation unless that group targets another group and it makes me particularly upset that day.
Well, that is it for now. I will try to post regularly, but my work load that week and inspiration will decide that.
Thanks for reading!
p.s. I promise the rest of my posts will not be this long!
