New watch bands, old watches. Cheap NATO-style nylon watch bands. One is a 4-year old Q&Q Smile Solar from their debut line, the other a 2-year old SKMEI model no.1206. #horology #wristwatch #bargains

I don’t think I’ll ever play the flute again.

I would like to cement this into my head so I will no longer waste any more capital nor emotional energy.

This clip is from over ten years ago, recently uploaded to my church’s youth YouTube channel. I feel embarrassed by it, my flute-playing was so off-tone and bad. But it is what it is, and I’m glad that it was recorded.

I don’t know if I want to try playing the flute again. I mean that is I want to, but I’m also a bit afraid that my playing will be just as bad or would be even worse.

Be comfortable with being seen as ridiculous and idiotic. 

Be active, no matter how society acts so insecure, cruel, and childishly fearful. 

Be confident that you are a deserving human and that your pursuits are noble.

You will always be in a state of cognitive dissonance. The only thing you can do is to choose which worldview you will subscribe to and to mold it, as best you can, to match the realities you experience each day, in so far that you can still cognitively and emotionally function.

Your worldview will always, always differ from the worldviews of all humans around you. Most cases only ever so slightly, but more often than you would expect quite significantly in numerous enough cases. You cannot ever satisfy the cognitive dissonances experienced by others, nor can you possibly perfectly overcome the cognitive dissonances you yourself experience. You can, and in fact you must, choose which theories to subscribe to and which theories to reject, and you don’t have to share all with everyone, and even fulfill all demands thrusted upon you by all others around you. Keep yourself together. It’s the best you can do.

Grow. And expect that others will attempt to tear you down, maliciously or not, intentionally or not. Keep moving. Life’s a bicycle ride, kinda. You only keep upright by keeping on moving.

Just to record for myself that for four (4) hours today, May 1st 2018, from around 8:00pm-11:00pm Jakarta time, Medium.com was blocked by the Indonesian government.

Access has since been restored. If any statement is to come out of the government it would probably be tomorrow morning, which will be around six to eight hours from now.

A worse-case scenario is that tomorrow morning the block on Medium would be reinstated. I hope it won’t come to that.
