I can't believe it's Christmas Eve already! It feels like it's only a week into December!

Which makes it even more likely that time is actually moving faster. Y'see, in 2000, it felt like April was taking forEVER, but on November 3, 2010, I almost put the date in my The Notebook for English class as SEPTEMBER, and of course, now the last 24 days before Christmas felt like only 7 days.

Let x be the year + the month / 12 (for instance, July 1993 is 1993 7/12) and y(x) be the ratio of how much time seems to have passed at a given point in the month x to how much time has really passed (for instance, if time appears to be moving at twice its normal speed, then y = ½).

Then:

y(April 2000) or y(2000⅓) > 1 (let's just say y(2000⅓) = 31/30, even though I doubt that April 2000 seemed only one day longer to me than it really was)
y(September 2010) or y(2010¾) is between 0 and 29/63. Let k = y(2010¾).
y(December 2010) or y(2011) = 7/24

If k = 19/63 (the lowest multiple of 1/63 that is greater than 7/24), linear regression for these points creates a function with a zero between January and February 2015, implying that time will reverse there. Increasing k to 29/63 moves the zero of the function to between October and November 2016, so time has to reverse somewhere between January 2015 and November 2016.

But wait - since y(2000⅓) is probably more than 31/30, the value of y is probably decreasing faster than the linear regression equations I found predict, so time will reverse even sooner than that! :O

I'll take your word for it. How much time will be reversed?

All of the time in the universe. See, it feels like the ratio of how fast time appears to be moving and how fast it should be (i.e. 1 "second per second") is decreasing, so if it ever reaches zero (which it will if I was correct in assuming that the speed of time is a linear function of the year), that would mean any amount of time would feel like no time at all, so time is moving infinitely fast, and if it becomes negative, that would mean time is moving backwards.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
