"loose" vs. "lose"

Random thought for the day:

Why do we pronounce "lose" like we do when we pronounce "choose" like we do... this is really bothering me. Heh. I feel like we should also have "meese" the plural of "moose" and "shoop" the singular of "sheep"....

then again, i'm a rebel.

okay, i need to go study for my 2.001 (mechE) exam tomorrow and I just finished my 8.02 exam. partial credit is my best friend. haha...i was totally rocking out to my music and jamming on the air drums before the exam and my friends and TA were like "you're crazy".... hah, tell me something I don't know!

But seriously, it's my thing now, i don't just "walk" somewhere, I bob and dance and skip... I figure, i like to do so when I'm listening to music *anyway* might as well do so and then give others the liberty to be themselves! This quote has really been jiving with me lately:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

I'm tired of feeling inadequate, ergo, I'm going to stop. I'm going to think that I have something to offer, even if, it's just a smile and a crazy girl dancing down the hallway. Something good is bound to come from that, right? :)

Ta ta the loves of my life! <3
