New Year, New Something

Welcome to 2017. It is a new year, which means new beginnings (I guess), which means I should make goals (or whatever), and then try to hold myself accountable to them. Or, I could do nothing.

I kind of like the later option.

Rogue One: Five and Five

Did you see Rogue One? I saw Rogue One. And now I feel the need to tell you the five things I loved and the five things I didn't love about this movie.

You get the warning now: SPOILERS!

If you have not seen the movie, don't read this. Please. You are doing yourself a disservice. This post is meant for those who have seen it, and I welcome conversation on what you agree with and what you don't.

Last time: SPOILERS!

And on to the show...

NaNoWriMo 2016: It was a win-win

NaNoWriMo 2016 is officially in the books, and for the third time in six years I am officially a, "winner," of the November writing project. The goal? Reach 50,000 words in thirty days, no simple feat, but I have done it, as this certificate will show.

But getting to 50k words isn't the end goal for any writer. The ultimate goal is to finish the story, edit it, and get it out for public consumption. In previous years, despite winning the 50k award, I did not complete the novels. They sit now in my hard drive awaiting to be returned to like a scorned lover remembering the better days.

This time, things were different.

More Evidence The Media Doesn't Understand The St. Louis Rams Issue

***Update at the bottom***

If you didn't hear, the Rams left St. Louis to move to L.A. this year. If you didn't know that, you probably didn't know the Rams offered Jeff Fisher (the head coach) a contract extension today. And if you don't know who Jeff Fisher is, it's easily agreed upon that he is a sub-par head coach in the NFL, who has yet to lead the Rams to a winning season.

Enough about Jeff though. He's not the point of this post.

100th Post: A Look Back at the Best

Since moving my humble blog to Google's Blogger, I have written (and posted) 99 blog entries. This one here marks the 100th posting on Faith.vs.Physics.

I thought it might be fun to take a look back at my most viewed blog postings, like a clip show on a kids cartoon, and count them down. I hope you enjoy, and maybe you will see an article listed here you never got a chance to read.

Here we go, my top ten posts!

Fear: The Real Winner in U.S. Politics

I'm afraid. Whether it be for myself, or someone I love, I'm afraid.

This is a common theme after the 2016 election. My social media feeds are full of statements like this. For what reason? Because a man won an election to sit in the highest office in the United States of America.

And what are these people afraid of? His policies? His Vice President's stance on social issues? The way he behaves toward women and minorities? Or, on an even broader scale, are they afraid that half of the country would elect a man with these behaviors, policies, and agendas?

All of the above.

Last post before November

October is almost over. Soon it will be costumed children running the streets for a shot at some candy, which will mark the final day of this fine fall month. It means November is upon us, and I for one, am ready. November may be my favorite month. I love the weather. I love the holiday of Thanksgiving. I love the football ( little less these days, but it's still my sport). And in the last few years, I've come to love the writing.
