I like this website ^^^^^ It has cool quizzes and articles and colouring pages that one day I want to print out and colour. Plus it has other fun things on it too.
So I was reading about "acoustic ghosts" which are inexplicable bodies of movable mass that can even rival the size of a city deep underwater as seen by sailors and oceanographers in submarines since World War I through sonar technology (should be fairly obvious). They're called UFOs which stand for Unidentifiable Floating Objects and there were so many theories about what they are but said theories were shot down and the sonar readings were quickly blamed on differences in water temperature and deep sea mountains.
But here's the kicker! Apparently the UFOs are comprised of hundreds of millions of FISH. That's right, FISH. This school of fish was even bigger than a whale! It's the size of Manhattan can you imagine?? I can't even fathom!
Then there's this video that I found a while ago that came with a series of other videos of sounds recorded from deep under the ocean and this is just an example. More information about the video is in the Youtube description. Interesting stuff!
Creepy sound, right? Recently it's been discovered that it's likely that it's actually Antarctic ice rubbing along the ocean floor. How unbelievable is that! The ice must be huge to be rubbing along the ocean floor like that because it's so deep. I'm not sure if I can quite articulate why I'm so amazed by all this.
The ocean and outer space are two such deep, mysterious frontiers that are laid out there right in front of us just waiting to be further explored. There are so many things that we don't know yet at this day and age but I think it's outrageous the little things we discover through the continuous development of science. God surely does provide us with a lot of really amazing, miraculous things to learn about in this universe even if our size is comparable to molecules when we think about it because the universe is so vast.
I do think this world is very beautiful in in a lot of little ways. The way the dawn light hits the houses, the mixture of colours, the way the streetlights seep into my windows, things like that.
I want to study more astrophysics, and I'm going to attempt to be well-rounded in all fields of the electromagnetic spectrum. Perhaps one day if my artistic careers don't work out I will turn to SCIENCE! I will be an astrophysicist or an astrophotographer or anything that involves astronomy.
Great Lent started for my religion but I can't have seafood because I get sick from it, however I think I'll try to eat more vegetables and chicken (I love vegetables and chicken yum) and I'm going to cut out sweets and snacks for the next 8 weeks. There's something satisfying about not eating chocolate and cheese and eggs for several weeks until Easter, which in my religion is the biggest holiday event of the year (makes sense why really because by the time Jesus Christ resurrected He actually did something).
So I went for a walk on Saturday morning at dawn with my dad and I took a few photos and I hope this will become a sort of regular thing. We went down the large hill and walked by one of the beaches and then head up straight into the village next to us and spent time at one of the parks there. I got some really good suggestions! It was awesome and it got my creative juices flowing again so that's great, I think every time I'm going to be depressed and uninspired I'll just take a long walk to clear my head and perhaps once I get depressed again I'll do a painting or something and listen to some good music.
Speaking of which, I'm going to try to start painting today finally! I actually really can't wait for it, I've been excited for weeks but other obligations had to be filled before I finally got around to it. I'm also going to start the sketches for James tomorrow night and I already have his profile written down. If I work on the sketches and paintings at least two hours every day I will be able to produce the character sheets at a faster rate. No days off, just work work work! I'm going to try to have it where by the end of next month I'm going to have Rose's and James' character sheets and profiles up and I'll make every effort to get more people to view my blog only so they can tell me what they think.
Sometimes I really want Falkor the Luckdragon to just burst into my window and take me on an adventure.
