Higgs Boson and the passage of time

This week, we were greeted with the 'exciting' news that scientists and nerdy gurus may have finally uncovered the Higgs Boson. For most normal folk who probably stopped paying any attention to science after high school, the Higgs Boson is the famously named "God Particle". It is supposed to shed more light on our existence and provide answers to critical questions such as: "Was Morpheus really telling Neo the truth in The Matrix?", "Is Nicki Minaj's body real?", "Does Kanye West really dig Kim Kardashian or are they just screwing with our heads?". The truth is, finding the Higgs Boson may be the best thing ever to happen to mankind, on the other hand, considering the amount of money and research that has gone into discovering just one minute particle, it better be worth the effort! If you are interested in knowing more, you can google it. :)

There was an incident that transpired a few days ago that shook my trust in people, I still haven't gotten over it. It has basically altered the way I look at life. There was a barbecue at my crib to mark the Fourth of July celebrations, wasn't a big event, just a few close friends. I was a spectator most of the time because I was too tired to take part in any of the planning. At the end of the day, after all the eating and drinking, one of my 'guests' ( I refuse to think of the person as a friend) took my iPhone(I don't want to use the word 'stole') . Of course everyone has denied taking the phone, but we don't need a scientist or Higgs Boson to realize that the phone didn't just grow legs and walk away (a la Craig David). The smooth operator not only removed the SIM card, but also reset the phone so I couldn't even track it. I've learnt 2 valuable lessons from the incident:
1) ALWAYS lock your phone.
2) NEVER trust people blindly, trust must be earned.

Coco has warned me before about trusting people blindly but I always argued that you have to give people a chance, I'm a changed man now.

Still hunting for a new apartment, but I've narrowed down my choices. Brick City is definitely out of the options. I think I'm taking my talents to the Parsippany axis this fall (cue...drumroll and applause). My 2 little angels are heading back to Naija in a few days, still haven't figured out how I'll switch back to being a single fella. I've made so many transitions in the past few months that sometimes I wake up not remembering if I'm hispanic or white. Time flies you know, tis one of those little tricks of life, the passage of time right before your eyes. You slowly fall into the rhythm of breathing and working, sleeping...while life slowly sweeps by like a day you look in the mirror and you can't remember when the dream ended and reality began, or when summer merged into fall...while you struggle to remember, time keeps rolling by...

Live your life...Forget the past...Just live your life...

As for Higgs Boson, I don't care about how we came to be, I'm more curious about what the future holds for us ...
