Subject: Re: How do you like your eggs?

Forum: How do you like your eggs?
Hi Court!
I, like millions of other people, often have eggs for breakfast. It is a warm food that is easy to make and provides a lot of energy for the day that isn't empty calories. For the longest time I was picky about my egg style. I only enjoyed them scrambled. Not everything has changed since then, I still don't like egg salad, I still don't like deviled eggs, but I now can proudly say that I enjoy easy over eggs!

I think it has become my most common way of consuming eggs over the last year. I find it easier, and just as delicious. I really like being able to slap it on a piece of toast with some avocado and tomato on top. :P

Subject: How should social media be used?

Forum: How should social media be used?
There is a long debate about social media. I find it tainted with bitterness from the older generations, claiming it is destroying the younger folk. We apparently never talk to each other or communicate.

Meanwhile, I see kids like the boy from the superbowl halftime show that didn't know what to do with Justin Timberlake dancing in front of him so he just fumbled with his phone until the moment was over.

I believe that social media can bring us together, it can connect families, people from overseas and help us become a unified world. Unfortunately, it is not working that way currently so I wonder, HOW DO YOU THINK SOCIAL MEDIA SHOULD BE USED?

Subject: What language would you acquire?

Forum: What language would you acquire?
If you could just wake up tomorrow and know a new language, which one would you pick?

I would probably pick Arabic or Spanish. Both super useful and relevant to our world right now.

Forum: Do you ever just forget to eat?
Hey Matt!
Far too often do I find myself forgetting. I think for me it has something to do with screen time and lowered attention span due to constant stimulation. I will find myself watching for a few hours straight and just not getting hungry because I haven't moved at all.

I also sometimes forget to eat when I am really focused on something else. Like when I am at work and I am digging into something, I get so concentrated on finishing that one thing, that I forget to think about eating or peeing. I don't think it's too unhealthy for me in particular because I don't move a lot during the day so I don't always need the calories.

Subject: Re: Is success from luck or from hard work?

Forum: Is success from luck or from hard work?
Hi Elissa,
I definitely think there is a both involved. You don't want to me to say both I know but that is what I am choosing anyway.

I was listening to a podcast about psychology and how we have a personal bias about our own life being more difficult relative to others. I think that it's funny that we all think we are disadvantaged in some way. Why is the person trying to merge into MY lane and not someone else's? Why did my car have to be hit TODAY?

There are all these negative things that come along with our new found love of statistics, which is that we never think that we will become one of those data points.

I believe that we think success should not be attributed to luck. We have a hard time coping with the idea that we did very little to become successful when in reality, a large part of our success is due to our placement in this world.

I think being born a white male in modern America is giving me a huge portion of my success and I don't want to forget that.

Yes I work hard and I put in the time, but I can't say I deserve to be living in a three story house when I am 24 and have a dog, a girlfriend, a college degree, and a steady job.

I did what any human would do given my position.
