Disclaimer: Not judging, just curious.
Why do so many non-religious people observe or attempt to observe lent? The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, penance, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial. I’m just curious as to the motivation behind the practice if the religious observance is absent. I appreciate any feedback!
1. Nuclear power plants supply roughly 70% of the United States’ emission-free sources of energy.
2. The average efficiency of nuclear power plants is anywhere from 90% to 100%, operating 24 hours a day every day the reactors are critical (online).
3. Nuclear power plant employees are paid…

Engineering is neat.
One thing that is getting really old as a student is that all anyone ever talks about is how shitty their classes and homework and life is. We all have to complain some or we’ll internally-combust from stress, but the constant nature of it is so draining. Every single teacher is out to get you. Every single assignment is the worst thing ever (yes…I know, some are…).
YOU’RE IN COLLEGE THOUGH. Deal with it.
i think of this whenever i buy anything over $10

So I got bored today and decided to attempt a before and after type progress picture deal. This represents about a year and a month or so of work. I obviously have a long way to go but it’s always fun to remember where you started to give you perspective. About 25-30ish pounds of mass added. The fitness also was key to me quitting smoking (finally, after 9 years) and I must say I enjoy the healthy lifestyle and all the benefits that come along with it. I make progress every day and that’s all I can expect. Me vs. Myself.
