future scientist on the loose? nahhh


I posted a while back about how much I hated physics. So much work... I actually had to use my brain... who wants that? Looking pretty gets you much farther, right? So it's okay that I don't care, because as long as I know how to apply my blue mascara and smile I'll get everything I want.

(Kidding! It's such a lie! ...it's really my amazing fashion sense that'll get me somewhere in life.)

However, this morning, I was accidentally drawn into a discussion about it (It wasn't my fault, I swear! That's the last time I ask someone what they're reading...) and I was, to my surprise and horror, a tiny bit fascinated.

Did you know that particles actually have a wavelength? And that, at any given moment, a light particle has a fifty percent chance of being in one spot, but could also be in another? (Except it's not really fifty percent because of interference and frequency lines...) MIND. BLOWN.

I actually miss physics a little right now.

Confession: a tiny part of this... just a little squick... might be because it was a cute boy who was explaining all this to me. But just a minuscule photon-sized bit. And I definitely wasn't thinking this...


Nope. That thought did not cross my mind. At all. Not even at the speed of an electron.

Hope you're all having a wonderful Friday! Is anyone else intrigued by Physics now? Did anyone else actually know these things?

  4. I'm taking physics next year, and no-one I know can understand why. Its not the cute boys I swear!! Although they are a bonus!
    I just think its really interesting, hope you carry on discovering your love for light particles :D

    1. I enjoyed some parts... others were just long :P like any class, I guess. (and no worries, I would totally not judge if it were for the boys xD)
