Times They Are A-Changing

Do I like Bob Dylan?
His voice is, well, according to a corny mid-nineties movie spoof it has the ability to destroy aliens. I don't know where I stand with him, I mean some people think he's one of the greatest musicians one will ever come by while others have said that he makes their ears bleed, it's harsh, I know.

I really like his song 'Times They Are A-Changing' and desputably mediocre voice or not, his songs do have very insightful, enlightening messages. I don't know, I think I do like him, I mean I'm not prepared to become an extreme, die-hard Dylan fan but when asked I won't deny that I listen to his songs. Anyway what do you think? Of Bob Dylan, I mean.

Okay, my mind's going a mile a minute right now so I'm sorry if I jump around alot. You know how people always announce that they have to 'go pee'? I have a theory as to why, a few theories actually. My favorite one is that half the fun of saying something like 'I have to pee' is that the other person didn't need to know it.

I don't know what it is but recently I've been feeling super happy. Unbeknownst to most people the end of '09 and the beginning of 2010 were really hard times for me. Things got bad, and I mean really bad, I had never experienced that level of bad before. And the worst part is I know that there are other people in the world who have it ten times worse, and although my family is a tangled and utterly imcomprehensible mess, I'm really glad that I have one.

Anyway lately I've been really happy, maybe its Spring's sunny weather or a new perspective on things, or most likely my wonderful, absolutely amazing friends. Hmm, I think it's the latter of the three, really they are amazing, I don't know what i did to deserve such great friends.
Really, I'm going to need reconstructive jaw surgery from smiling so much.

There's something weird all over my isn't water, because it's sticky but dry at the same time. This concerns me.

Oh! Okay, so I have to make an extra credit poster in Algebra on the Pythagorean Theorem. We need to make our own word problem and illustrations and everything, and mine is about a pirate! Are you up for the challenge? Can you solve the ultimate Pythagorean Theorem question?

Okay, so here it goes:

Zack encountered a math problem that he couldn't solve. The problem went like this:

Sid the pirate stood on a beach five miles away from his ship and three miles away from a chest of burried treasure. How far away from the burried treasure is Sid's ship? (Side B is 3 mi. and side C is 5 miles, find A)

Bonus Question:

How far would Sid have to travel to get to the the treasure and then back to his ship?

I know, this is probably the simplest Pythagorean Theorem problem known to man, the answer is four, which means the bonus question is seven. Haha, this makes Zack from the word problem look extremely simple, seeing as he couldn't solve the problem...although my brother Zack did it in his head :p

Anyway to my friends, who are pretty much the only people who read this, one again I love you all. I'm also in a very sentimental mood so expect very large hugs tomorrow...which is Thursday for those who read this later on in the week.

Well, I think my work's done here.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo,
