What/Who is Anonymous?


Mind of Andy:

Rebecca writes beautifuly about the freedom-fighting group, Anonymous. It’s a long read, but definitely worth 5 minutes!
It makes me feel like I have to spread truth and thereby freedom RIGHT NOW! So I hope it will make you feel the same!

The standoff between Britain and Ecuador over Julian Assange’s bid for political asylum has been making headlines around the world. For the past two months, Julian Assange, the founder of the whistleblower website Wikileaks, has been taking refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. The U.K. courts ruled to extradite him to Sweden where he faces possible sexual assault and misconduct charges. This story has caught the attention of the public because it is more than just news; it is a drama. Assange is a controversial figure because of his role in publishing classified diplomatic cables on Wikileaks (for more about “Cablegate,” see here), but he is not the only one involved in this spectacle. Although the U.S. is not directly involved, it casts a shadow over this standoff. Assange and his supporters fear that if the UK extradited him to Sweden, it would not be long…

It has been the longest while since I have been here. Honestly speaking I have had lots of missing you times…

Unexpectedness

Well, my life took an unexpected welcome turn and I just had to go with the flow. I have finally got my footing, though for a while it felt like I was drifting helplessly.

These past weeks, I have gotten a crash course on life. I have made for myself life altering decisions in a matter of minutes. It has been the scariest moment in my life and yet most rewarding.

I have found myself making some of the world’s biggest mistakes, this one hurts the most. There is nothing as irritating,painful and gut wrenching as cognitive dissonance. This I have had an overdose for a while. Living and appreciating each day as it comes is suddenly having a new meaning in my life.

Cursed with a Brain


Mind of Andy:

Very inspiring telling about how thhinking can bring acting to a halt. It takes some time to read it, but I highly recommend you to spend 5-10 minutes :)

I was cursed with a brain. I try not to think about it, but still, I think all the time. It’s like having the wrong remote control for the television. It doesn’t matter if I hit stop, pause, reset, or mute…I keep thinking. I tried meditation, but all I did was sit alone in the dark thinking about making sure I did it right. I’m thinking about trying it again someday.

Dancing Fools


Mind of Andy:

A truly inspiring story about friendship :)

Originally posted on Words/Love:

 

I only have one memory of school dances and it is this: standing around in a big circle of friends, trying to look like someone who’s having fun, and hoping not to be noticed. This is the plight of all teenage girls who can’t dance, and most likely all teenagers in general. No one feels the watchful eyes of others more than insecure adolescents.

I have had many, many awkward moments in my life. They have all felt exactly like standing in that circle. I have tried to make a joke out of them. I have laughed at my shortcomings. I have tried to deflect attention away from my discomfort. But I’ve failed, each time, to arrange my face the right way. My expressions always reveal everything. I’m not a good liar.

Which is good, because I don’t want to lie. What it took me far too long to…

Learning to Learn


Mind of Andy:

Very inspirational for any teacher and engaged student out there! Give it a few minutes :)

A school is not a conveyor belt
A number of times in recent past when I have tried to discuss, with children of my friends and across 8-16 age group, what they are studying in class, which subjects, what they like and do not, and how they are being taught, I have found some very disturbing patterns. Most of the children do not read beyond the curriculum, and even within that, and as early as grade 8 a lot of them depend on study guides and such help to make sense of their textbooks and rely too much on notes that they take from their teachers. There is a lot of dependence on rote learning as well. All of the above is true for even children going to elite schools. And there is too much dependence on spoon-feeding, from teachers, study guides as well as tuition…
