    You know the saying; "You learn something new everyday." What did you learn today?


    Today I learned that Sonic the Hedgehog's real name is Olgilvie Maurice the Hedgehog. He was originally named after his grandfathers, then legally changed his name to Sonic.

    Today I learned that being very socially awkward is making me feel very depressed especially around people during events where you are supposed to be interacting with people. (talking to people in Spanish class, Being in the Marching Band during football games, etc) (I had three mental breakdowns because of it)

    Today(more like yesterdays since the day just started) I learned that the universe is flat by 1% and in the far distant universe, (like 10^10^10^56 years try plugging that number into your calculator) there is a non zero probability that another big bang will happen.

    Today I learned that I apparently don't know my left from my right and kept turning my key the wrong way and couldn't figure out why for the life of me why my door wouldn't lock.

    Today I learned how painstakingly long and hard it is to get into grad school. Two grad students in my major were talking with me today about the process because one of them is waiting to hear back from schools she applied to so she can get her PhD.

    Today I learned that the Egyptian Jackal was reclassified as a wolf and is now called the African Wolf. That means Anubis, which is what Riolu/Lucario were based on, was actually based on a wolf, not a jackal. My name makes sense now!

    And I guess this means that, by knowing this, I'm slightly more of an expert on wolves now? :P

    Oh don't worry, the event will probably end long before you die.

    Kind of random, but over the last couple of days I've been "studying" the "history" of a game I'm playing to figure out what's actually going on with my character's backstory. I'm still not sure about it because I think either I or the specific game I'm in or both have been combining two events together. Whether that's true or not effects what my character's take on that event would have been, because it would depend on the exact year it happened.

    So I'm still not sure about that, but I'm borderline an expert on that specific 7 year span of history of this game's lore at this point.

    That 'insanity' isn't a psychological term but rather a legal term.

    That's true! I learned that in one of my sociology classes a few years ago.
