This post was going to happen, whether I typed it up or not.

Fate/destiny is a stupid ideology. Not just because it doesn't make sense to believe that everything is predetermined and “supposed” to happen, but because no one seems to understand that same sentence. 

Here's what I mean, ever heard someone say you have to “Control your fate”? 

Maybe someone has said it to you in some inspirational talk, or you heard it in a movie when they try to encourage the protagonist, but look at how fate(or destiny) is defined. "An inevitable course of events." 

Inevitable, unavoidable, unchangeable. Whatever happens was supposed to happen and there’s nothing you can do about it. Does that imply there is no free will? If whatever you do is already set in stone, then what ever you choose is already chosen. Confusing? You bet.

There's definitely more to talk about here. I'll expand on it later.

Update

For the past few days I had been trying to put up a new post. However, I can't seem to get a singular idea into one post. I keep taking tangents whenever I start to gain momentum on a topic. 

I like my ideas, I just don't like how they turn out on paper. I will be experimenting with making shorter, more meaningful posts rather than long drawn out posts. Hopefully it will make my posts more interesting.

On another note: How do you start your blog posts? Do you organize and proofread your topics before posting, or just open up the blogger dashboard and start typing?

Driving Sucks

Driving is annoying. Whether or not you obey the law or not it's a lose-lose game.

Driving is like trying to debate people. There are some who stick to the rules no matter what, some who are more relaxed about it and the ones who are just fucking crazy. It is a game of ignorance. You have to assume everyone around you knows what the fuck they are doing. Which no one does.

Quick poll(For those in the US):

How many of you know whether your state has a tolerance for speed(Ex. 5 miles above and below is acceptable) or whether it is completely intolerant?

Did you have to search it up? If so don't worry, I wasn't entirely sure either until I had to convince my family otherwise. For the past 14 years of living where they do. They had convinced themselves that our state had that 5mile tolerance and could never believe it when they got a ticket for going 2 miles above the speed limit. I did the research, and “behold!” our state is intolerant. You could legally be arrested if you go so much as 1 mile over. My point is not to say that some driving laws are stupid (Several are), but the fact that no one really knows what they are.

They take what they learn in drivers education, which is only covers the basics of driving and general rules that apply to all states but completely disregard situational laws or ones that change dramatically per state.

I hate driving.

That is all.
