Configuration means to figure out what is going on. I guess. I’m not quite sure. Because whenever you do think of the word you think of something technical. Like configuring a computer. What is the configuration of your computer and something like that. But then I think it means a way of design. The way something is made rather than to figure something out. I should really consult the dictionary more often.

How can we simply figure out how to live our lives? The simplicity of today is that we exist, an uncomplicated answer to an unknown question. As our lives go through turmoil we can simply but accept it and learn how to understand such a thing.

To analyze a situation or problem and come up with a solution. To “figure” something out. The scientist configured an anecdote to the disease.

Wow. For over a month now, every time I try to do a One Word post, I’m reminded of something I do not want to write about. I go to One Word hoping for escape, waiting for a day’s word to spark some thought in another direction, but somehow my brain manages to connect every single word to this particular event. Really. Every word. And today’s? An incident that involved a computer.
The mind is a terrible thing to have mess with you :o|

I kept fiddling with the dials, waiting for something within me to click; waiting for something to feel right.

“This configuration is all messed up!” the blond man sighed throwing up his hands. “How the hell do you manage to fly this thing without getting blown up to bits?”
“A little bit of trust,” the young woman answered bending down to deliver a light kiss on his cheek. “That’s all.”

The configuration of the honey bee’s were rather peculiar. The followed the queen as if she controlled their minds. Nothing I have ever seen matched their dedication to the Queen. No human had that much desire to please. It was like they were programmed.

configuration is the form of the places where i wanna be. I love to configurate with my bed, and i hate configuraters. My brother is talking to me and i wanna kill him :) Id like to understand better how are we humans configurated, and how the fuck does our minde really work.

hmmmm i barely know what this word means. Which is pretty damn unfortunate since i have an 88 average and im not stupid. It makes me think of computers though, which i dont like. And i really dunno what else.

it wasn’t easy, but i finally got it to the correct configuration. the board is now completely oprational. there are no more risks involved when using the phase device. the molecular integrity of the subject should remain intact when proceeding with the procedure.

the configuration of my mind argues with my personality. im the girl who hates awkward silence, but has no clue how to fill it. the one who wants to be cool, and smart and funny, but cant figure out what exactly that means. to fit in, but be individual at the same time.

configuração de pessoas num bar: algumas sentadas, algumas em pé, algumas bebendo, outras segurando a chave do carro, outras segurando pessoas, outras segurando o mijo, outras segurando o riso, outras segurando as palavras e muitas segurando a verdade.

With all the quiet contemplation of a chess master. All the spontaneous skill of a Lego sculptor. All the finesse of a tightrope walker. All the vagueness of clouds. I try to do it. Take a step forward.

The lines join together. Making shapes, pictures, configurations. A world lays under my pencil. A world waiting to be shown. Who am I to deny that?

Together the job was done in the configuration of this great system. The two people were very proud of themselves and decided on getting married because they had loved each other so very much. They had their wedding that same year. They fell in love the very day the project was complete and realized they ccould not live without each other. and it was very romantic :)

Math. Strange numbers. I can’t currently think right now. Configured strange. Strangeness. Fragments. Not understandable. Incoherent. Angsty. Brainwashed. Strangers. Two meet. End of story.

The particles in the chemical mixture had a particular configuration.

Owls are a huge hip and modern design for this generation’s configuration.
Configuration also means the latest style.
Yesterday, I was out with my friend at a local clothing store. I spotted an bag with an owl on it; it was roomy and obviously cute. But it turned out to be sixty something dollars, so I was unable to purchase it.
In case you didn’t know, I have a slight obsession with owls.
Funny how a word like configuration can go straight to a discussion about owls!

The configuration of the numbers had stumped her. She sat, hands poised over the dials, staring blankly at the screens that rose up around her. She tapped her chin as she glared at the code.
Come on, she told herself. Think!
The sound of heavy footfalls clomping down the hallway stopped her train of thought. They were coming closer. Closer to the control room. Closer to her. She had to figure it out before she got caught. Tears of sweat trickled down the back of her neck and her heart thumped loudly as she squeezed her eyes shut and turned the dials as hard as she could.

my fingers fly over the key board trying to get the configuration of words to erupt from my finger tips like lava from a moody volcano. only 60 seconds you say. a mere 60 seconds. seems like a minute to win it, what do i win? honor? pride?

ITS A WORD DESCRIBING THE SEQUENCE OR ORDER IN WHICH SOMETHING IS DONE.

How even two simple words inspire such incredible hatred in me I do not know.
They have such incredible power over us- they watch us day and night. They manipulate us, use us, add us, remove us on even the slightest whim.
Jack showed me what life free of the configuration could look like, and it was beautiful. Free. Here, every move is watched. The very microfiber of each wall, each brick, each article of clothing is inlaid with microscopic cameras. Sensory nerves are attached to us day and night, collecting data. We are their machines- to them, we are nothing but relatively convenient robots.
But nothing in my life has ever been as beautiful of that brief, salty taste of freedom in the air.

Is it the same word every day or what?

Once upon a time, there was a young boy living in a castle in France. His dream was to be the king of configuration, but his father was only a shoe shiner. This meant that he could never be ore than just that.

i configure about many things, like how old will i be when my cat finally doesnt hate me!!!
By lily on 06.27.2012
Is anything really new anymore, or is it the same old stuff just in a new configuration? Is anything truly original?
By kellywellee on 06.27.2012
A long word that I don’t really know. I’ve heard it, but I don’t know exactly what it means. Maybe if it was in a whole sentence I would understand the meaning, but I don’t know what the single word is… I don’t hear it often. I wish I was smart enough to have a good vocabulary. But I’m not. I’m kind of stupid. Not really good enough for most things. Oh well…

The configuration of the room was puzzling….on the one hand it was easy to relax and on the other hand it kept chairs and seating areas close…too close for comfort. I’m not sure that is was intentional, but it could lead to confrontation or ….not.
By coramie on 06.27.2012
they arranged themselves in an intimate configuration, jumbling limbs and hair and kisses. a comfortable closeness enveloped them, and they fed off of each other’s exhaustion.

The chess pieces loomed menacinginly at me. They were configured on an enormous board. Or I was shrunk. I just woke up here. Nobody gave ME any dirctions

The configuration of a laptop doesn’t take very long but is an exciting process. This action requires patience and careful reading of instructions. Yayyyy! Woo.
By Daisy on 06.27.2012
I think of transfiguration. Like harry potter. Changing the appearance of something. I think all things can be transformed in some way. A person, however can be only be influenced, they are the only ones that can actually change themselves

how does one configure a bookshelf? that i will never know. it winds and twists and lifts and shifts, oh, what a frumpy show! configure this, and configure that. why must we do this? aren’t people destined to do this? Or maybe they just float.

This word reminds me of computers. Other than that, my mind is blank. I don’t like this word. It his ‘fig’ in the middle of it. That freaks me out. I am odd with words.
By laura on 06.27.2012
Configuration. I think about configuring my computer controls or something, to make the screen the right brightness or the sound louder or whatever. I just realized I thought of the nerdiest possible idea to come up with for that word.
By Maddy on 06.27.2012
The configuration was unfamiliar, after a flurry of keys she drew a slow breath.
“I can’t do it.” Her tone was more surprised than upset.
It was over.

The configuration of the dancers on the stage was absolute perfect chaos. Each majestic little fairy thrashed about onstage with a vengeance that seemed impossible for the delicacies dressed in white.

Configuration can involve set up of any form. whether trying to configure an electronics to work, configure setting in a game, etc, configuration is the key to setting up things to behave
