a lot of you know that it’s very normal for me to write an end of the year blog or do some reminiscing about the past year or whatever you would like to call it, because i’m obsessed with dates and stuff. i usually outline all of the people in the past year that have impacted my life and exactly what they have done, but i don’t know if i want to do that this time. i think i’m just gonna summarize the year very quickly, and be done with it.

i said this before, in my old blog, how much 2008 reminded me of 2004. like almost exactly. in the first semester of 2004, i was trying to get over a failed relationship. i still thought maybe we could be back together. finally, by about may, i realized that we’re not gonna be together ever again, and to just continue on with my life. i spent the summer kinda trying to make new friends or start a life without her in it, and by the next august, i moved into the dorms again and made all of my current college friends. and pretty much never really saw her again.

in the beginning of 2008, i was trying to get over a failed relationship. it was hard for me to handle the break up and i still thought that maybe we could get back together. by may, she moved to california, so i pretty much realized that we’re not gonna be together ever again, and i had to just continue on with my life. i spent the summer trying to figure out how to make new friends now that i’m out of college and how to start a new life without her in it, and by the next september, i moved to seattle and made all of my current friends there. and so far, i haven’t seen her again.

they teach you in school that you should read about history so it doesn’t repeat itself. i think i really did forget about my past enough that the same thing happened to me again.

but moving to a good note, i think i made a great decision in my life. it didn’t look like it was for a long time. i gave up a great girlfriend, i gave up an opportunity to go to medical school and pursue a lucrative career, and i became a vagabond, all for purposes of finding myself and learning to be independent. for the first eleven months, it really looked like it was turning into shit. but over the past couple weeks, i have finally realized that i made the right decision. and that’s why i’m excited for 2009.

so it’s time. time to move on from 2008. remember not to forget this time.

The longest lasting total solar eclipse of the 21st century will occur in what year?

so i’ve been reading a pretty sweet book called zero: the biography of a dangerous idea. it’s about how the number zero wasn’t accepted for thousands of years and how that caused problems in different societies. it also touched up on something that i’ve thought about for a really long time.

i’m gonna preface this with something my brother said to one of my friends, who was pretty much the only math major friend that i had. (if you knew the other math majors at my school you would know why. there was this girl math major that looked like my friend’s brother. yes. brother. there was also a russian guy who looked like a rat and smelled like 100 packs of cigarettes. and we also can’t forget mr. jeremiah rounds. he was very round.) anyway, my brother asked my friend “what is there to talk about with math? like if you’re a political science major, you have lots to discuss with your friends, or if you’re a psychology major, there are all sorts of studies you can discuss, etc. but with math, what can you really discuss?” my friend continued on by saying there are a bunch of things to discuss. but i didn’t really listen. because i kinda agree with my brother. to a certain extent.

there is one thing that i love discussing about math. and that is division by zero. in a field that is so concrete and based on truths that transcend our physical world, there is but one thing that we have not been able to define. and that is the division by zero. it’s seemingly where all of our logic fails and symbolizes the mere fact that our research is not over. that there’s still one problem to solve. and will we ever solve it? probably not. that’s the beauty of it. we have agreed to disagree with division by zero. (by the way, anything divided by zero actually equals 42.)

so after all this time, i have decided to start my webpage up again. now i understand that about 95% of you guys think that i’m just gonna update this thing for like a few weeks and then i’ll stop, because that’s what i always do. and maybe i really have nothing to offer you that will make you think otherwise, but i’m gonna try and keep this going for a while. i spent a shitload of time coding some of the things that i needed to use for this so if i just used it for a few weeks, i pretty much wasted a bunch of my time. and hey, the more constant traffic that i get here, the more inclined i’ll be to keep updating it. if i haven’t updated for a while and you bug me to update again, that could also work (but moreso if you’re a hot girl than if you’re greg benezra).

alright, so the things that are gonna be different about this blog than the one in the past. first off, as you probably have seen, there are random links scattered all around the entry. this idea came from one of our best friends and certified idiot, christopher spencer. so, all throughout the entries, certain words or phrases will remind me of something and i’ll link to it. something that’s not different from the last blog is that there is still going to be a picture in every entry. and it will be in the same place that it was before. there are two more things that i have added along with the links and picture in every entry. there’s also going to be a poll in every entry, so make sure that you vote in all of them, and there’s also going to be a trivia question. now, i know that everyone can easily cheat, i’m just hoping that there’s really no reason for you to cheat on stupid random trivia on my website. anyway, if i feel that people are being truthful and not cheating on the trivia game, i am willing to send out a prize to the person who has the most points at the end of the each month (keep in mind, this prize is probably going to be ridiculous and worth less than five dollars).

now, you guys may not know how this page works since there aren’t links all over the place for the archives and what not. the theme that i’m using for my blog was made by a guy who modeled it after a popular operating system. so, if you want to visit the monthly archives, you click the start button and click monthly archives. if you wanna search via categories or tagged phrases, you can do that too. you can also change the background theme by clicking “change theme…” in the start menu. basically, just screw around with everything and you’ll find out. the blog rss and comment rss buttons at the bottom are there if you want to subscribe to my blog. since i’ve never bookmarked a page in my life, i don’t expect you guys to do the same.

anyway, now that i have explained to you what going on here, i kinda want to put a quick excerpt of actual blog (and remember, not all blog entries are gonna be philosophical):

many of you know my grandfather passed away two days ago. a lot of people that have known me for a really long time have definitely met and probably known my grandfather really well. it’s just weird to know he’s not around anymore, since he was practically always around since the time i was born. but hey, that’s just how life is. if any of you guys have my mom’s phone number or something, you should give her a call. or skype her. she’s on that. haha.

and in somewhat unrelated fashion (even though it’s gonna sound related, but it’s not), there’s a reason as to why i have started my blog today. as most of you know, i’m obsessed with dates, so this one has some importance. what’s important is not what happened, but to just know that there are some moments in your life that can change your life forever. one moment could be the difference between being homeless and vagabonding around the world to being a professional like a doctor or a lawyer and living in a comfortable three million dollar home.

so now a conclusion? someone else has already said it best. so if you can’t top it, steal from them and go out strong…

i have returned.”
