An Ode to Eris.

An old journal entry, written during my board exams two years ago :

Chaos is absolutely necessary to modern life. In today's day and age, an individual who can perform under utopian circumstances is thoroughly inadequate. In order to attain a high degree of competence, it is necessary that one be capable of crisis management and dealing with demanding deadlines.
Therefore, I shall continue to while away time like a hopeless invalid, muse ceaselessly about the egg-came-before-the-chicken hypothesis, and save Quantum Physics for the day before the exam. Amen.

Conclusion : I find myself very hard to argue with.

*Eris, aka Discordia, is the Greek goddess of Chaos.

Hahaha. Infallible logic, really

Oh yes! And I misuse it most delicately.

Using logical reasoning, facts, stats I reached a conclusion long back; deadlines are made to make one feel guilty after not meeting them.
I freed myself from the shackles of deadlines and guilt, that fateful day.

You are heading in the right direction Sherry so worry not, just go kiss the world ;) :D

Hmm.. only about as fair as three dices with three 6's. Just unaccounted for.

What's unfair is trying to get something to account for it.
