I realized a lot of stuff today.
Thing Number One: why magic can’t exist.
Now, I know this sounds funny, but for the longest time my logic on this one was, “Magic can’t exist because… well, because it can’t.” But now I understand. I know why it can’t.
This is because of Newton’s Laws. Funny man, Newton. You seem to explain just about everything with your little rules. But no, seriously: it comes down to the basic principles. You can’t make something out of nothing. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction (FMA, anyone?). I think what really baffled me about this is the fact that it took me so long to actually realize.
Thing Number Two: why I can write when I have a thousand things going on and can’t when I don’t.
At first I thought it was just because I wanted to procrastinate, to put off doing all the stuff that must be done. And while that might be partially true, I think it’s more because I think so much more when I have so many things going on. My brain’s working on overload, so why not turn some of that into beauty? It always confused me when couldn’t write when I was handed a chuck of time, but now I get it. All I was thinking about was how I didn’t have anything I had to do instead of thinking of life around me. If I start actually thinking when I have nothing else to do, I’d have something good to write about. It all comes from the thought process.
So two things. That really is a lot of stuff, especially when I spent the majority of my time studying physics and freaking out about the midterm I have tomorrow. But it’s these thoughts that I can pull something new out of.
