You know how people say you can’t live without love? Well, oxygen’s even more important.
So lately I’ve been feeling quite off from my usual self; being negative, pessimistic, and overly self-blaming. Emotional, sentimental, and nostalgic are the three adjectives that have been shadowing me for the past 3 years. Sorry if I bothered you, but being alone in this world makes me feel insecure and wanting to be dependent. But now aside from everything I’ve talked about, I’m desperate. I’m desperate to keep my life running. I’m desperate because if I don’t, the engine will stop, and I will need more power that I do not have to start it over. I’m going to move on. I’m going to be more desperate because I don’t want to lose this race either. Goodbye, whatever was revolving around my life. I’m orbiting into another star-t.
Too tough, #TeamJordan
A candy merchant receives 3 opaque boxes. One box contains mint candies, another contains anise candies, and the last box contains a mixture of mint and anise. The boxes are labeled Mint, Anise, and Mixed. All of the boxes are labeled incorrectly. What is the minimum number of candies the merchant will have to sample to correctly label each box?
The fifth enigma is stated as follows: “A student asks his teacher, ‘How old are your three daughters?’ The teacher replies, ‘If you multiply their ages you get 36. If you add their ages you get my house number.’ ‘I am missing a detail,’ protests the student. ‘Oh yes,’ says the teacher, ‘the older one plays piano.’ How old are the 3 daughters?”
The seventh enigma is an elementary algebra problem with a twist. A mother is 21 years older than her son. In 6 years, the son will be one-fifth his mother’s age. The enigma asks what the father is currently doing.
