And our PSSA testing is almost done! *explodes* Well, until next month, when we'll take the damn thing AGAIN. Why must we take the exact same test 3, 4 times in one year? We took the exact same test last month. and a few weeks before that with the Foresight testing. Which we had also already taken back in November. And September. Which was when we took the PSSA's for the first time.
I need sleep... I've been falling asleep at 3 a.m and getting up at 6 every day. I feel like a zombieeeee.... insomnia le sucks. I need to find a recording of Bob Ross. For those sad individuals who've never heard of Bob Ross, he's a goofy guy who painted, with a huge white-boy fro who was always super-mellow... his favorite phrase was "happy little *something.*" "Okay, now we're gonna paint some happy little trees now, and put in a happy little stream right there..." That guy is like a human quaalude- put him on and BOOM- sweep me away Sandman! I need to find a recording of him and loop it... then maybe I'd finally be able to fall into a happy little 12-hour sleep... Current Mood: drained Current Music: MSI- shut me up
Sri Yantra, the mandala of creation, projected into 3 dimensions
Stan Tenen's sculpture represents the geometry of the tale of Creation in the Hebrew Bible, and the hyper-spherical geometry and musical tones that the Vedic, Hebrew, Greek, and Arabic alphabets are based on in Tenen's research and findings. This octahedral, four-fold arrangement is unique, and does not appear in any ancient or prior source. It differs from the standard pentagonal constructions of the Sri Yantra, which usually are arranged in 3-D as either a stack of flat triangular plates or as triangles on the hemispherical dome of a gemstone."

... I can already see where this is going, and it scares me... but thats alright! :) Just sharin' the crazy.
I want the weekend to be here. the 4 day weekend last week let in so much peace... being away from tons of people, noise, stress, etc. I managed to get my mind to shut up long enough to actually meditate for about an hour(big feat for me). I've been able to walk around outside without freezing lately, so I was out a lot... go to nature, people. Nothing else will give you inner peace. It was such an energizing weekend, mainly due to not having to get up at the asscrack of dawn and march to school... my spiritual practices, from yoga to japa and worship, have gone up a notch in devotion and energy :) And its stayed that way- the one thing that stayed with me from those few days. If only the bliss would have!!!
Once you're thrust out into the real world after experiencing inner peace and quiet, you realize how disillusioning it is. But, you have to live! You have to go to work or school, have to get out into the public, and face the stresses of everyday life. How to blend that spiritual/mental calm with the noise and stresses of life? Many people have managed it... I just need to find a way for myself :)
Ok, my random rant is done... now I leave bearing gifts!! This is pure awesomeness.
