Kokology - Week 1
Your desktop is spilling over with unfinished paperwork; the rest of the office has already gone home for the night. You look up at the clock and it laughs back. You wonder, with a sinking feeling inside, if this job will ever be done.
The professor drones on and on through a three-hour double lecture on the world's most boring subject. There's no space left for doodles in your notebook, and you're only thirty minutes into the class. You begin to think you've somehow been frozen in time.
Waiting can be a special form of torture, worse than any momentary pain. The combination of frustration and boredom can send even the bravest heart into a state of panic. Our first journey will bring us face-to-face with the infinite. Take a moment to prepare yourself, and enter the eternal desert...
1. You are riding a camel across the vast and empty expanse of a seemingly endless desert. You have ridden until you are near exhaustion. What words would you say to the camel that has carried you all the way?
My answer: "Good job."
2. Just at the point when you thought you'd die of thirst, a beautiful oasis appears. But someone has arrived before you. Who is this other traveler? (someone you know)
My answer: My father.
3. Time passes slowly in the desert, and it feels like an eternity before the lights of a town slowly appear on the horizon. You have finally reached your destination. What are your feelings as you come to your journey's end?
My answer: Triumph and relief.
4. The time has come to part with the camel you have ridden for so long. Just as you dismounts, a new rider climbs into the saddle to take your place. Who is the new rider? (name another person you know)
My answer: My older brother, Nick.
Wow, I have a feeling my answers are gonna bite me in the a**. I won't be reading the explanations until i post them next week.
