Some addenda to my previous Ode to Sleep post: Quartz Obsession on sleep deprivation. Coincidentally appropriate Nobel Prizes were allocated. Of course there are outliers. Elon Musk and Martha Stewart are known to sleep very few hours a night. Really though, all the Nobel Prize awarding this week has me reflecting on the worst of science and one bad habit in particular. I remember the myriad projects I turned in as far back as eight years old. And just as early, I recall questioning the word hypothesis. It seems to imply an anticipation, how things will turn out. A real experiment is considerably more random, thus static variables. We are fallible, the dynamic variable: experimenter; questioner; builder of the project; … Read More

Ode to Sleep

BrockaHealth & Wellness, Mood Room, MusicLeave a Comment

From where I sit: I’ve slept ~6 hours in the last two nights, each. This.is.no.bueno.for.me. Zombie-esque. 7.5 hours is my minimum. I hate everything otherwise! I don’t verbalize it as such, but I think it. I think it so hard. I am concrete being drug through mud. Over the years, under the guise of this fog, I’ve made objective observations. The experience has repeated itself enough, I can somewhat rise above it. There’s always the general anger over the circumstance; the physical ache within my self, my body; the negative thoughts…The real fist punches are the negative thoughts. Now an observer of them, I can classify them as ‘other’, as apart from me and very circumstantial. I’ve learned to overcome … Read More

~how it may naturally flow sitting across from you I hate saying I’m going to do something and not. I wanted to post sooner than now. In the same way I hate getting my hopes up about something and being disappointed. That’s life. Pardon the delay. Boston was a wonderful whirlwind. I never really sat but to sleep and enjoy a long desired Bloody Mary at the Cheers bar and also split a dirty martini at the hotel bar. Both relished. Aside: the Cheers tv show is equivalent to Frasier. Frasier is really an updated, sophisticated version of the same relationship dynamics. Proceeding in this same format, both as entertaining and more intellectually satisfying,¬†Seinfeld follows. All the same premise: a … Read More

The Random Show II

BrockaMood RoomLeave a Comment

[Sunday] The first Random Show was in early August. It’s a fine read. A few similarities. I did go back and read it after I formulated this; I needed to see when I had titled another post as such and what numerical value this should be. Since the randomness always runs, how many times have I tried to excuse myself? I’m barely good at boxing myself into this format, something organized and cohesive. Such as why the food-diet-health post is slowly churning along in no cheap, fast fashion way. I want it to be right. I know I can’t avoid offense and hurt feelings or disdain. What we eat is not simply survival-reactionary but personal and emotional, on all the … Read More

The daily diet particulars may vary any given week, month, or year; but this is not about food. Finally the day has dawned, and I’ve added a distinguishable link for Books to my blog menu. This post is noticeably short, because I want you to go there. and my angels around me in unison sing, ‘Hallelujah!’ The bookshelves of individuals is great insight into personality, am I right? I left out some categories. You’ll especially notice if it’s a particular genre which occupies a lot of your reading. I hint at others. Books are personal. They take up residence in both our minds and our homes, or in data on our tools. They need readers to even exist. A book … Read More
