Rocket Science

I’ve had to take a few yoga breaths and channel my inner buddha in order to do this, but I’m ready now.. Lots of my friends read this blog. In fact, I’m pretty sure about 50% of all my readers are people I know personally (and one of them is my father…hi Dad), so this post is a little too personal for my liking. But if I’ve learned anything from blogging, it’s that I love who I am and what I’m like and I am going all-out honest today.

Ahem.

I’ve decided to drop out of school to become a rocket scientist.

I know what you’re thinking: don’t you need a degree for that? Well, technically you do, but how hard can it be, really?Why else would people say, “It’s not rocket science!” when something’s really hard? …Or is that when something’s easy? Shoot.

Here’s the deal: I know I said I really wanted to be a writer forever and whatnot, but then I realized that I am so much better than that. Who needs to read, anyway? Rockets touch so much closer to home. Whenever I see a rocket (which is like, every day), I think I wish I knew how that thing worked. So I’ve decided to work for NASA. Cuz I’m that smart.

Science is soooo my thing. How else would I have gotten a C in AP Bio last year? I know, I know, you’re jealous that I got the highest grade in the class. Please don’t cry too hard, I’m sure you can do other stuff better than me. I can’t do push ups to save my life. Maybe you can.

And I’m really good at math, too. 2 + 2 = 4. That’s a really hard equation and it only took me like 20 minutes to figure out. And no, I didn’t use a calculator.

So I’ve decided that school is for fools and NASA is for people like me…plus, I’m pretty sure I’ll get to wear a lab coat. Please don’t miss me too much when I’m off being awesome. Oh, and because I’ll be researching the science of rockets, I will no longer be blogging. Sorry…

  1. OK, so I’m Cappy’s dad. She may be a rocket scientist in the future, but I’ve had a rocket kit w/ a jet engine in the box for us to assemble over Christmas to launch over our sled run hill, and she either wanted to sled or she wanted to blog.

    Nonetheless she tells me it only took a few hours for her to get up to speed on the Theory of Relativity, since she paid $9.99 to the National Inquirer mail order ad company for a (guaranteed) lock of Einsteins hair, and for a (also guaranteed) cc of Werner von Braun’s brain(Google them), which she put in our stir fry the other night–good w/ curry sauce. Is that a run-on sentence?

    So goodbye and good luck Caperino.

    Write to us when you learn how.

    XO–Dad

  2. Ooo, a lab coat? I’m jealous. Maybe I should become a pharmacist or something so I could wear a lab coat, too. I used to own a dictionary of medical terms, so I’m sure I could pass the test. Do lab coats come in purple?

  3. You go, girl! You are smart enough and wise beyond your years, that I just know you can do anything you set your heart on! But don’t give up the blogging. We’d miss you’re wit (and writing style) too much!!

  4. But we’ll miss you so much!! Although I guess mankind could always use another rocket scientist. Good luck! Write to u… oh yeah. You’re not blogging anymore. *BAWLS* OH MY GOSH, WHHYYYY!??!

    Heheh. Your humor is amazing.

  5. When you’re in space, make sure to wash your labcoat with red grapes; that will lead to a beautifully purplish shade. Also, send blogposts via shooting stars, it’s the new, stellar, out-of-this-world technology. Good luck!!

  6. What??? Is this the truth or some type of fun joke. I’m not a friend of yours and no I don’t know you personality, but I love the way you write it has character.
    I truly hope your blog continues.

  8. I concur with many of the other readers. Never stop writing. Not now when your blog has reached the far regions of Holland… If anything, write more, start selling ‘writer’s block’ t-shirts, signed printouts through e-bay, advertise yourself via BBC’s Webscape, go to Oxford … but never ever stop writing :) Become a published author; so that we all can say: ‘I was there; from the beginning’ :)

    PS: Maybe another ‘how to’ because I’ve tried Russel Crowe’s line from ‘A Beautiful Mind’; hoping for a better result.. but when the intel is bad, well…

    Thnx; love your blog.

    • Ha thank you SO MUCH, I will of course never stop writing (unless I’m bashed over the head and forget everything, which would be a great tragedy). I’m so glad you like what you’ve read. And I am very pleased that people in all parts of the world have read my blog!!!
      About the How To in regards to Russel Crowe’s line…I’m a little confused. What is the line? I haven’t watched that movie in years – let me know what you’d like me to write about and I’ll happily ablige!!
      xo

      • It’s just a joke :) I haven’t seen the film in years either, but this always stuck with me. Just before he discovers the beginning to his theory (by realizing none of his friends should go after the blonde girl), he tries to talk to the girl at the bar:
        ‘I don’t exactly know what I am required to say in order for you to have intercourse with me. But could we assume that I said all that. I mean essentially we are talking about fluid exchange right? So could we go just straight to the sex.’ No need to say he gets slapped in the face.

        There are 5 parts on how to make any twit fall in love with you, but only 1 part on how to make any chick fall in love with you. For us, twits, without a white horse, it’s a harsh world out there :)

        But no, I was just kidding. I would never be so presumptuous as to telling you what to write. I adore your blog just the way it is.

        And yes, if somebody were to bash you over the head, it would be great tragedy. Please remain indoors.

        • Hahahahaha I completely welcome suggestions, so really I loved that you mentioned that movie. I remember that scene now, and I’m cracking up remembering it :) Oh man. Best line ever.
          I need to think of some more how to make any chick fall in love with yous.
          I adore you for adoring my blog. And I promise to wear protective headgear at all times.
