Dream house

My dream house would be a 5 room house in the city, close to all stores, schools and places I might need to visit.

The house doesn’t need to be a huge mansion and it would be best if it was just a normal house on the outside. That will prevent robbers from targeting “the huge house with lots of possible profit”. It needs a big garage for all my and my guest’s possible cars and to have a big room under a roof for all kinds of activities. In the backyard of the house, there might be a pool but definitely a hot tub. Around the backyard, there is a tall fence to block anyone from swimming in my pool without asking and keep the eyes of the neighbors out.

In the living room it needs a big TV, a couch with massage built in and a mini fridge for easily accessible drinks. One of the 5 rooms would be used for storing and building remote control cars, boats, planes, drones and other toys. The Kitchen would have an ice cream machine, popcorn machine and few other appliances that are not that common.

The Garage would be a special place with lots of tools for some bigger toys used outside like quads, dirt bikes and snow mobiles that would be stored there. That house has lots of things for me and my guests to enjoy and entertain me in quarantine.

The car of my dreams

My dream car would be a red 2020 Toyota supra mk5 with lots of modifications that would make it cooler and more usable in Alberta.

Toyota Supra is an RWD Japanese sports car that is powered by a german twin-turbo inline 6. Toyota calls the supra a “tuners dream” because it has many tuning options and should be easy to modify. The engine is limited to 262 HP because of Japanese voluntary self-restraint among manufacturers. Many people have proven that the car actually makes 330+ HP on the dyno just like the BMW Z4 where the engine is taken from.

The car would need AWD to be safe in Alberta winters, have steel bumpers to prevent unwanted deer or moose damage and would definitely be lifted with 25′ wheels to go over snow, rain and the mud. The best engine to go into that car would be a supercharged 6.2L LSA engine with an upgraded camshaft and exhaust that would make a reliable 600 HP and would sound great. The top speed of the car would only need to be 200 Km/h to be able to have fun in the summer and since speed is not needed off-road its good enough.

The interior needs lots of cup holders for all the drinks that I and possibly a few friends drink. The seats need to be comfortable but safe at the same time with a 5 point harness that would keep everyone in the car during possible jumps. The speakers could get an upgrade from the stock ones that many people complain of being squeaky.

The Art of Losing Friends and Alienating People

As people get older, they might lose some friends that they didn’t see in a long time. When they get older there are more responsibilities and they lack the time to meet with them. Young people have little things to worry about and can just go out to meet with friends almost every day. The friends have been ghosting each other and the author says that it’s difficult to realize that one has been ghosted when the ghoster disdains all forms of social media. Some younger people might not want to become friends with older people and old people have their pals so it is hard to make new friendships.

I’m 72. So What?

The author is 72 years old and tries to find new friends. Everyone thinks that she is extremely old and doesn’t want to talk to her and sometimes even avoid her when she goes out with her dog in the park. She already lost most of her friends over time and can not find new ones.

Time travel

The best time to go to is 2008 because that year and few next one good things happened and it was not that long ago so the technology would not be much different.

When time travelling I would make my self 21 years old so I could skip school, university and be old enough to get a job or shop online. In 2008 the oil price was very high and people made lots of money working there. If I could save lots of money if I worked there when the oil price was so high. That would allow me to invest in things cheaper back in 2008 and sell them for high in 2020.

There are things I could buy when they used to be cheaper back then are bitcoin. Back in 2009 bitcoin cost less than 1 cent and the highest price ever for one was over $25000 in December 2017. By investing 1 dollar I could make over 2 million dollars today. I could also buy rare cars cheaper, the 2006 Ford GT is a sports car that is powered by a supercharged 5.4-litre engine that has a top speed of 300 mph. Only 4000 cars were made and the price for one today is over $666000 but from 2004 to 2008 the price was only $200000. 2007 Porsche Carrera GT is another car that is double the price today then it was in 2008.

With today’s knowledge, I could predict the future and prevent many catastrophes like a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti that killed 230,000 people in 2010. August 10 of 2008, Toronto Explosions leaves 2 dead and thousands evacuate their homes. In 2011, 16000 people died in the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. There are many more small things that would not have deadly results if people know about them before they happened.

If people knew the future, they could make many good financial decisions, and prevent deaths.

Teleportation

If I could teleport, my choice would be British Columbia.

It is not much different than Alberta but it’s warmer, there is more sun and it snows less there. British Columbia is still in Canada and I can continue to get my Canadian citizenship. There are many nice places and things to see. Since there is less snow there are fewer road accidents where cars lose traction on snow or ice. Cars won’t have as much rust on them and won’t lose value on something you can’t stop. More warmth and sun means more vitamin D, It plays a significant role in the regulation of calcium and maintenance of phosphorus levels in the blood.

Sisters

“Me and you be sisters. We be the same”

“be loving ourselves
be sisters.”

Remember

Remember your birth, how your mother struggled
to give you form and breath. You are evidence of
her life, and her mother’s, and hers.

Duet

“Two sisters side by side, benched at the gleaming fin of the living room’s out-of-tune”

Riddles of existence

Questioning everything with a caveat means to examine the truth and every detail of it. Sometimes wondering too much about one thing is not good because it might be a waste of time. Other things, on the other hand, are good for the brain to think about.

Usually, the more information the brain is taking the smarter it becomes. Thinking about the rainbow unicorns is probably not beneficial for the brain as thinking about some riddles of the existence but it might be useful to think. For example, what if the bees would stop existing? There would not be a way for some plants to germinate like apples, melons, cranberries, asparagus, or broccoli. None of those things would grow without those fuzzy insects not mentioning the sweet honey that some people use every day in the morning with their tea. If those fruits would stop growing, many animals eating them would die and the omnivores that eat them would die with spiders and over 24 kinds of birds that rely on that food source. Bees also help trees grow and they provide shelter to many small creatures that would go extinct without shelter and the rest of their ecosystem.

Bees are more important than some people think and want them gone when they get bitten by one but if they would stop existing basically the whole ecosystem would be ruined even though the bees are soo small in size.

Luke 10:38-42      

 Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying.  Mary sat listening to the lord while Martha (mary’s sister) did work. Martha wanted mary’s help to do the jobs but she was listening to Jesus.  Martha asked Jesus for his help to tell Mary to help her do her work but Jesus tells her that Mary chose the best choice, to listen to Jesus.

Mary was listening to Jesus but Martha was too distracted to listen. Martha wanted God to fix her problems but Mary would sit and listen to God rather than help Martha. 

 

Mary chose to listen and learn to Jesus rather than Martha was distracted and did not want to listen to Jesus.

 

Mary listened to Jesus to what he had to say rather than help Martha.  I think Mary is going to do nothing to help and listen to God.

Summary:

John 11:5-6   Lazarus grows ill and Jesus stays with him for 2 days while Mary and Martha leave. Jesus loved them all and felt the need to stay longer for Lazarus because he was sick. Jesus loved all three of them and felt the need to stay with Lazarus because he was very ill and the other two were not so he left them to stay with him.  He stayed two days longer so he was there for Lazarus. Jesus’s attitude towards Martha, Mary, and Lazarus is that he loved them all and he even stayed two days because he was ill and didn’t want him to be alone. Jesus loved Martha, Mary, and Lazarus and when he found out that Lazarus was ill he stayed for 2 days because he didn’t want to be left alone. 

Summary- John 11:20-22 Martha went to see Jesus and Mary stayed home.  Martha was then upset with Jesus because Lazarus had died. Martha blames God for Lazarus dying. I don’t think that Martha has a good relationship with God or she wouldn’t blame him. Martha’s faith is not based on logic was based on just her opinion, it would not make sense if someone is not there and someone dies that the person who is not there it’s their fault. Martha’s faith was based on that she had lost her trust in God and she blames him for letting Lazarus for dying.  I think she had a good relationship with him until he died and then now she doesn’t have a good relationship because of blaming him for letting Lazarus die. Martha’s faith in the lord is based on her relationship with Jesus because she believes that if Jesus was with her brother he wouldn’t have died and she had faith that if he stayed he wouldn’t have died. Lazarus dies and Martha believes if Jesus stayed he would still be alive.

Romans 7:14-23 Who does Paul talk about as he tries to explain law and grace. Paul speaks of sin and how it makes him make the wrong choices and do what he does not want to do. Paul is talking about himself and how he is sinning. The passage talks about how Paul is admitting that he has sinned and that he does not do what he wants to do but what he hates.

Exodus 4:10-17

Exodus 4:10-17 Moses told the Lord to pardon his servants because he has never been eloquent not in the past or since he spoke to them. The Lord said back that he is slow of speech and tough and because Moses complained that he could not speak well, God appointed Aaron as Moses’ “prophet”. At the command of Moses, he took his staff. Then he stretched out his rod to bring on the first three signs. It says that Moses isn’t the best and equal to everyone else. And he wants Jesus to speak to everyone doesn’t matter what’s wrong with them. And that will make his heart happy. What is Aaron’s role? Aaron’s role was to speak for Moses from Jesus.

 

Acts 8:26-38 The angel told Philip to go south to the road that leads from Jerusalem to Gaza. There he would worship Candace, queen of the Ethiopians. Philip is taken by the Holy Spirit to meet a highly placed Ethiopian court official who is reading Isaiah on the way home from Jerusalem. The Ethiopian asks for and receives baptism as a believer in Jesus as God’s Messiah, promised by Isaiah.

 

 It’s about he said to go to the road south of Jerusalem go to court official of the cadence queen of the Ethiopians. He came to Jerusalem to worship and return home he was reading the prophet, Isaiah. He had Philip help him understand the bible. And taught him the good news about Jesus. They found water and said what is to stop him from getting baptized and they stopped and Philip baptized him. Who are the two people in this story? Philip and Eunuch Why does one of them choose to be baptized?. 

As they were going along the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, ‘Look, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized!“He commanded the chariot to stop,” and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.

 

1 Samuel 16:23- His music is helping to heal the soul of the people and ward the evil through the joint passion of music. He also helped him to see that music can connect people. Who calms Saul and how? David calms Saul by playing the Lyre

John 1:3-9 – Jesus is described as the beginning of life and all-new creation. Without him, nothing would have been created. There would be no light to overcome the darkness.  John was sent by God to prove to people that he is true.

Mark 13:24-27 – Jesus describes the world in chaos, with the sun going dark. Then he says he will come in his glory, and bring light back to the world. If you’re in the dark, Jesus can bring the light back. 

Ezekiel 1: 4-28 – Ezekiel uses images to help understand God.  Ezekiel explained what he saw. He told about the four creatures,  that they had four different heads, and they had 2 wings each. He said they walked in a line with their wings touching and went with the spirit, never turning. Ezekiel also explained about the clouds and wind the creatures were surrounded by.

Luke 5:4-11

When does Peter first begin to understand Jesus? Peter started to understand Jesus when Simon and Peter pulled the nets full of fish into the boat and the boat started sinking.  Peter fell to his knees, saying that Jesus shouldn’t help him because he had sinned. Jesus said to Peter that he was forgiven and that He can teach them about His forgiveness. 

 

Matthew 14:24-33 

What does Peter do when he sees Jesus? Jesus appeared to the disciples and said, “Take heart, it is I, do not be afraid”  Peter then answered Jesus and said, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water”. Peter did not react the same way as the other disciples that saw and feared Jesus.  Instead, Peter answered Jesus’ question and said, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” Jesus then said, “Come.” As Peter got out of the boat, he then started walking on the water and came towards Jesus. While Peter was walking towards Jesus, Peter noticed a strong wind, and began to sink he then cried out to Jesus, “Lord save me!” Jesus then immediately reached out his hand and caught him. Jesus then said “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”. When Peter sees Jesus he answers and follows him out onto the water. 

  

 

 

 

 

Matthew 17:1-8 

What does Peter suggest in this passage? Peter suggests that these mountains are a great place to be, so he says he can make three dwellings for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah.  Peter suggests that these mountains are a great place because the sun lights up Jesus’ face like lanterns, and Jesus talks to them shortly after his clothes became dazzling white.

 

John 13:3-10

What does Jesus do?  How does Peter respond? This passage is from the time around Jesus’ Passion.  Holy Thursday; when Jesus and His disciples are having the Last Supper in the upper room.  Jesus presents himself to his disciples as a servant and washes their feet in a basin. When Jesus offers to clean him, Peter responds stubbornly, stating that unless Peter washes Jesus’ feet, Jesus can have no share with him.  Simon Peter continues to say that if Jesus is to clean His disciples, He should not only wash his feet but also his hands and his head.

Based on these passages, which of the intelligence does Peter often use to understand and respond to Jesus?

Based on these passages, I can infer that Peter responds to Jesus with interpersonal intelligence.  Interpersonal intelligence is knowledge derived from social interaction with other people. In the first passage, Peter displays great humility, but Jesus forgave Peter and offered to teach Peter of his great forgiveness.  This tells us that Peter knows Jesus would have some form of response to his actions, thus further confirming his knowledge of interpersonal intelligence. Passage two further develops Peter’s responses to Jesus. We read of Peter’s response to Jesus’ pleas for him to come out onto the water with him.  Peter comes as Jesus commands him. In passage three, Peter recognizes the presence of others and offers to make dwellings for them. Passage four shows another act of Peter’s humility, telling Jesus that his feet, hands and head all need to be washed to really be clean.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5  What does Paul say helped reveal the power of the spirit? Paul reveals the power of the spirit by saying he chose not to know nothing among him except for Jesus Christ and him being crucified. He came to the spirit and said this he was in fear. He also asked for his help in what to do.

2 Corinthians 

Paul understands that in his grace the law that God has given him is visible.  Which of the intelligence is Paul using in these passages to help people understand God? Paul used fear as his intelligence to face the fears of the spirit.

 

2 examples of the importance and/or value of musical intelligence are that it can heal the soul and you are able to recognize different pitches. 3 people who are word smart are Ezekiel because he uses images and explains what Jesus looks like. Another person is Mary because she was a good writer. The last person is Paul. Paul is word smart because he understands the law and he is smart about stuff like reading and writing. 2 people that use logical intelligence are Ezekiel because he can put pictures with words and study them and the second one is Ezekiel uses images to understand god. She expanded to god the animals had different heads and when they walked they touched their wings with there spirit. Ezekiel also expanded about the clouds that the animals were surrounded by.  Matthew 17:1-8, Ezekiel 1: 4-28, Acts 8:26-38 are all passages that talk about spatial intelligence.
