Due to increasing complaints that I'm neglecting my readers, I'm going to just put out some of the flotsam and jetsam that's been bouncing around in my head lately to tide you over until something more substantial captures my attention. A sampling of some of the ideas that have passed through that region recently:
Am I religious? How is religiosity defined? Should it be defined by what I believe or by how I act? Or maybe by who I identify with? Or where I want to be? Do I really care? Why am I bothering with this?
How do relationships ever work out?
Do I not care about what's really important, or are things just not really important to me anymore?
What do I believe?
What's the big fuss about the whole Koran-gate scandal? Hasn't anyone heard of "don't shoot the messenger?" (Even if the messenger is mistaken?)
What should I write about on my blog? It's been two weeks since my last post. Don't I have anything consequential to elaborate on?
I love Google Maps. And Google Sightseeing makes it even more fun.
Do people nowadays have mentors? Where can I get one?
Should I start over and go to college?
How can I thrive?
How do I sort out everything in my head?
Will Chayyei Sarah make it to Lag B'omer?
What's considered "having a life?" And who decides that?
Ok, here's something that's more than a snippet. I recently discovered (what I think is) a logical fallacy (or as I used to call it, "a stira minei or bei") in classical frum thinking. On second thought, I have no patience to write it out all detailed and academically. Read it here instead.
