As I went out for a jog this evening, I ran on a trail that runs behind several houses in our development. It's a nice trail, with lots of hills and valleys to really work up a sweat and build up some stamina. It has trees and grass on either side, so there's some shade [...]
Oh, the things I've done. I'm incredibly lucky that the internet wasn't around when I was a teenager. Otherwise, I'm sure there would be at least one viral video of me ________ the _______ from the _________ with my __________ as everyone _________ around me. (Redacted for your own peace of mind.) Today, however, the internet [...]
One of the biggest indicators of maturity, is learning to acknowledge your mistakes, learn from them, and move on. This is especially true in any science field, but it can be applied to live in general as well. In science, if you make a mistake and are called on it, you better change your ways. [...]
I've always been amazed at how maturity kicks in and makes me look back on the past with a bit of shame. See, I did things as a teen and young adult that I would never even think of doing now. Although I got away with it then, I don't want to tempt fate and [...]

But this seemed to have happened one night when I was working the lab all by myself. Was the father the baby's real father? Was the mother the baby's real mother? Did I make a mistake in typing the baby's blood? The answer probably won't surprise you, so this is more of a cautionary tale.
Who was luckier? The defender gives the ball back to the keeper in a really bad way, then the keeper loses the ball, but then the attacking player misses the goal. It's a comedy of errors, and it proves that, sometimes, luck has everything to do with it.
