Allow yourself to write something down to paper or computer, the writing process has to start somewhere. If it sits in your head too long, it stays in your head. Don't be too critical of yourself, you can always correct it later, make it better later, edit it later. If nothing seems to be coming out, start writing about your experiences, write about the experiences that are most meaningful to you.(less)

The experience was all up to me, the production, good or bad, was up to me, I did not have to rely on others, convince others, push others, to see the final outcome of the dream.(less)

Parts one and two were excellent, part three was good but not as impressive as the first 2/3 of the book. Worth reading overall for anyone interested in the topic.

Love Chaos by Derek Hunter
"Love Chaos is a slim book of just over 100 pages, more than half of which consists of blank/coloured pages (almost every right-hand page). Each left hand page has a thought, idea or philosophy etc (there are 45 of these) - some as short as 1 or 2..." Read more of this review »

“They’re well versed on who was the first of each configuration of human being to accomplish something without ever realizing that the accomplishment itself doesn’t need the qualifier. There are 7 billion people on the planet; only a handful have ever flown on a space shuttle. Therefore, flying on the space shuttle is an amazing accomplishment in and of itself. Yet leftist professors and students look not at the accomplishment itself as something worthy of celebration but at the race of the person.
Guion Bluford was the first African American to go into space and to fly on a space shuttle. He did so in 1983, in the early years of the program. Bluford is not remarkable because he’s a black guy who went to space or flew on the space shuttle; he’s remarkable because he went into space. You haven’t flown on a space shuttle, have you? See?
To focus on a person’s race for an accomplishment is to cheapen the accomplishment. ‘See, even a (whatever type of person) can do this’ is the mentality. Well, why wouldn’t every type of person be able to do that? Why is it extra special that one person did it? SJWs don’t realize it, but the patronizing attitude of ‘You can do it, too’ toward various configurations of people implies that they believe it is special that the others did it, as if they or the world didn’t think they could. This mentality stems from college grievance majors. Many programs started decades ago, when there were real problems to be addressed. Ironically, as the problems were solved, instead of terminating the courses or refocusing them as historical studies, the departments grew even larger and more powerful. So they needed to create new problems.”

“TMZ’ and ‘People’ magazine are expected to be fluff, ‘Time’ is expected to be news. You’d be hard pressed to spot the difference between them now.”
