Have you ever seen the new King Kong film? Well in it there's this scene between King Kong and two tyrannosaurus rex'. They are fighting and it finishes with King Kong biting its tongue off and ripping its jaw off from its head. In a way my degree was like this scene. Me being King Kong and the Dinosaurs representing everything that tried to bring me down, stand in my way, make me feel bad, feel guilty, feel not good enough, demotivated. Well on Monday ill know my degree mark. Monday is Jaw snapping day. Blood will pour.

They say the darkest hour is the moment just before the dawn but sometimes i fear that the light will come too late. Greeting a face with faith absent, hope a stranger to abundance, illusions dismantled, experience poisonous and memories sour. Im fed up of having bruised knuckles and split lips, being painted to appeal to others scripts. Restore me. Show me that unconditional still exists.

"Alot of the people who read a bestselling novel, for example, do not read much other fiction. By contrast, the audience for an obscure novel is largely composed of people who read a lot. That means the least popular books are judged by people who have the highest standards, while the most popular are judged by people who literally do not know any better. An American who read just one book this year was disproportionately likely to have read ‘The Lost Symbol’, by Dan Brown. He almost certainly liked it."

Elementary Particle holding electromagnetic radiation. Both a particle and a wave. It is the necessary consequence of physical laws having a certain symmetry at every point in spacetime. The photon has led to momentous advances such as lasers, Bose–Einstein condensation, quantum field theory, the probabilistic interpretation of quantum mechanics, measurements of molecular distances and quantum cryptography. But the most important thing it does, is let me see your face when your more than a marathon away.

"Imagination is everything.
It is a preview of lifes
It is a preview of lifes
When i was little i would draw pictures. These pictures where of dragons, robots, skateboarding and race cars. On a monday morning the teacher would ask us to draw a picture on half the page and then write at the bottom in our best handwriting what we did.
I remember this one time making my teacher very angry. I drew myself skateboarding of a ramp and flying over my house.
"Matthew, you didnt really do this though did you?"
"Yeah, i did."
"Stop telling lies matthew. Next week you must write about something you actually did!"
So the next week, i drew that i had a bow and arrow. That i shot a badger with an arrow. My teacher flipped! He said i had to stop telling stories! In reality i spent the weekend playing "Hunting" with another boy called stephen. With a PH not a V. In my head i was shooting badgers with arrows.
At the next parents meeting my teacher told my parents that i had too much of a vivid imagination.

"Do not try to win awards. Nearly everybody likes to win awards. Awards create glamour and glamour creates income. But beware. Awards are judged in committee by consensus of what is known. In other words, what is in fashion. But originality cant be fashionable because it hasnt as yet had approval from a committee. Do not try to follow fashion. Be true to your subject and you will be far more likely to create something that is timeless. Thats where the true art lies."
