Hey everyone – this post will be a bit shorter than usual. This is because I had to study and take 2/3 of my AP exams (AP Stats and AP Micro) this week – so I didn't have a ton of time to write this article.
But at the end of this article, I'll be recommending a few links which I find to be pretty awesome. They aren't sponsored or anything, but I'd highly recommend that you check them out, because they are super cool.
Enough said. Let's jump into the article!
Why I Number My Posts
In case you haven't noticed, all of my articles have numbers assigned to them. This article is #22 (take a look at the title). There are a few reasons why all of my articles are numbered:
1. Easy Referencing
Let's say I want someone to read one of my articles. The easiest way to make sure they read the right one? Assigning a number to each article. This makes it a) tremendously easy for me, since I can (currently) remember almost every article's number and b) tremendously easy for the reader, since numbers are completely unambiguous.
2. Provides Motivation
Writing is hard – especially since there's typically a time delay between hard work and results. I love numbering my articles, because every article I write, I'm getting closer to a milestone. My next milestone: 32 articles!
3. Read a Random Article
And for you, dear reader. If you want to read one of my articles, but you're not sure what you want to read, pull up a random number generator and there you go! This will eventually be useful, when I have 100+ articles.
Links of the Week
- Tool: Midjourney – I've started using it recently, and it's pretty awesome. Seriously, MJ generates ridiculously real-looking food photography.
- Game: Escape Speed: xkcd – A wonderful little game where you can explore planets and upgrade your spaceship. Want to go really, really fast? Enter Inspect mode and type ship.engines = "warp" into the Console. This game is a ton of fun, especially if you visit the explain xkcd page.
- Article: Terminally Online – A terrific piece by Jack Raines that answers the question: what are we really doing with our time?
- Video: I Gave My Goldfish $50,000 to Trade Stocks – (Not family-friendly!) A hilariously funny video by Michael Reeves where Frederick, the goldfish, actually makes profit.
