I’m sure you know what hypes and trends are. They are things (mostly not even physical) that are a big hit at a certain moment, spreading in popularity across the globe like an infection. As soon as it starts, a big chunk of humanity might have already heard about it. At the moment, the so-called “damn, Daniel” hype is trending topic in the world. If you don’t know what that’s about: there was this one guy who has a friend at school called Daniel. This friend of Daniel’s yells “damn, Daniel” at him multiple times and records it via Snapchat. Some people thought it was funny and asked for him to make more clips of him saying “damn, Daniel” with Daniel being filmed. Eventually, it was shared, went viral and before they knew it, it became a massive hype. I saw someone sharing it on Facebook and thought it was funny, even though there isn’t a message behind it or it doesn’t have any useful, valuable, or purposeful meaning behind it or goal in front of it; it’s funny. I saw both guys appear on The Ellen show and was amazed by how fast things like these go. Something becomes popular, it goes viral and immediately the news world covers it and popular shows want the ‘subjects’ of the hype on their shows. Of course, these shows and the news world want to cover the latest and hottest trends, I don’t blame them. This is a dynamic world, not only turning around its axis, but also moving forward like crazy.
Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible. – Tony Robbins
I like that quote. It’s true. Something you don’t have or something you want to achieve can only be reached by going for that thing, be it an object, a prize, a piece of knowledge or a friendship. Whatever it is, it has to be reached and that is done by telling yourself “I want to get there.” You’re at point A and you want to get to point B. Without a goal, you’ll find yourself wandering around, aimless. Goalless. That’s pretty obvious, but it is not less important.
Goals and where they lead you.
Today I’m going to do something different. You might’ve heard about Alphabet (Google’s ‘mothership’). Alphabet contains a lot of companies like Android, Google, Gmail, Play, YouTube, etc. Each of them operating different projects and activities. No wonder why it has passed Apple as most valuable company. But have you ever heard about the secret projects
Today, I’ll be predicting some of Alphabet’s secret projects. We don’t know if they’re true, but who knows; there might be some truth in one of them..
Have you ever played Rocket League? I’m sure you have, because it’s one of the most popular console (and PC) games of the moment. It’s a great game and I had lots of fun playing it, but there is a dark side to the moon as well..
As you might’ve read cured and processed meats (bacon, sausages, ham) were placed alongside smoking, asbestos, and alcohol as a major cause of cancer. Isn’t that insane? We’ve been eating it for ages and you might get cancer from it. Such a shame, I love those meats. As I heard about the recent conclusion, I was wondering how much longer it will take for us to say every type of food is a cause of cancer. I think every food has at least a little bit of cancer-generating substantion in it, especially when you think of how many chemicals we unleash on our foods. It’s quite scary, actually; the thought of food being dangerous.
Growing meat, as in ‘growing potatoes’ is also a hot topic today; we might eat grown meat in a year. That’s insane, right? I don’t think I want to eat fake meat; I don’t even like vegetarian meat. What if the food came alive and started eating us and destroying the world? A meat apocalypse, with the meat exclamating “Gaaaaainnss.. Gaaaainnss..”..
I wonder what the (near) future will look like..
Studying is hard, and I think most of you agree with me on that. You have the ones that find studying easy and are learning fast, and the ones (like me) who have difficulty studying and need to put more effort in knowing the material, the theory. I am however, someone who’s content with a sufficient mark, instead of someone who has to get the highest mark. Of course, the latter attitude is better, as it challenges your ability, asking the most of yourself. I usually use the excuse of “wasting time if you can just get a sufficient” or “I won’t be needing it later”, while I can do better myself. But that’s a different topic.. I want to talk about tests. Yes, they’re horrible, especially when you haven’t studied..
Wouldn’t it be great to be a secret agent? Working for a secret service, doing secret things, like secretly doing things.. Yeah, all secret and stuff, you can’t know about it. Enough fooling around; being a secret agent isn’t all roses..
