A moment of silence for the genius, Stan Lee.
He obviously had his. Now the world is one less entertaining person and that affects me to a certain degree–remember Steve Jobs?
In this post, I am going to honor Stan Lee’s comic genius so if you’re bothered by the gifs, scram.
I know someone who could use that Google-patented Single Seesaw, and a number of people who deserved that butt-kicker. Then again, Marvel’s Avengers look cooler kicking asses.
Tim Wu explores the idea that forsaking the simple delight of leisurely playing one’s guitar over the dream of being a successful guitarist ‘has corrupted’ the world of hobbies. There are several paradoxes in the article — I mean, it was in the opinion section –, but one thing remains true for me: the pursuit of excellence is a choice, and by choice, there is freedom. Everyone can be lulled into the world of mediocrity but not everyone decides to pursue the challenge of being good at a particular craft.
“We as individuals are defined by choices we make,” said David Cage and I couldn’t agree more. I know, it is not exactly an article but it’s another medium for people to learn.
A few days ago, I made a grand announcement that I like Nietzsche- a rather sudden proclamation from someone who has not even finished reading his works. “To thine own self be true,” Shakespeare once said and yes, I love that.
From the title, I thought I would be learning something new apart from the word “sprezzatura.” It still is nice to confirm things that have been swirling inside your head for so long though that I can’t complain…that much. Could I quantify being called beautiful without even brushing my hair as a sign of practicing it?
November is that month that reminds me how fast time can fly– any month can do that tbh but for 2017-2018, it’s that month. Only last year, the same time, I was considering changing careers and even underwent a series of interviews only to land a job somewhere else. It’s entertaining imagining what 2019’s November would be like.
