“My philosophy professor said that humans only stay occupied to postpone their eventual deaths. And that our deaths won’t be glorious but mundane and ordinary. Freak stapler accident, hit by a bus. Then, he concludes by saying; “are you doing everything possible to be the best version of yourself?” And if not what are you going to do to change …. And every in the room looked really upset and I felt really empty and was like I’m definitely not the best person that I could be… It should be an easy task but once you really reflect upon yourself and see how unhappy you truly are. Starting to wonder what’s plaguing my life and what needs to change.”—
This is what I’ve been grappling with and trying to improve for months (if not years). I see myself living as a shadow or a shell of myself, even when I’m engaged in the activities or the personal embodiment/self-portrayal that I want to pursue or manifest.
"The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said its modelling suggested a ‘fairly large potential for an El Nino, most likely by the end of the second quarter of 2014.’
“‘If an El Nino event develops … it will influence temperatures and precipitation and contribute to droughts or heavy rainfall in different regions of the world,’ WMO chief Michel Jarraud said in a statement.
"The El Nino phenomenon occurs every two to seven years, when the prevailing trade winds that circulate surface water in the tropical Pacific start to weaken.
"WMO pointed out Tuesday that since February, trade winds had weakened and there had been a significant warming of the waters below the surface in the central Pacific.
“‘While there is no guarantee this situation will lead to an El Nino event, the longer the trade winds remain weakened, and sub-surface temperatures stay significantly warmer than average, the higher the likelihood,’ it said.
"Two thirds of climate models predicted that the phenomenon would begin sometime between June and August, with a few suggesting it could start as early as May, and the remainder predicting no El Nino this year, it said.
"The last El Nino occurred between June 2009 and May 2010."
