Now that Carley is gone, it is actually more unusual to think that she was here with me. That’s just strange to think Carley and I would have gotten together here. One time, a few years ago, some friends did something that really bothered me, and with some of them our friendship hasn’t been the same since even if they don’t realize it. Carley was involved in that, but for some reason it never bothered me. I’m pretty sure that is an example of being a friend that I’ve been trying to find in myself. Most friends haven’t been in a situation like that with me, but I think that is an important part of friendship of which I’ve been trying to figure out how to do ‘better.’
The law of reciprocity is applicable to my xanga: the less I have email communication the longer my posts; the more I communicate through email the shorter my posts. Although quite accurate, this is only a general standard however, and not necessarily true for every post.
Human interaction is a variable in this as well, though it applies more at home where I am apt to speak in person to the people I currently am communicating by means of email. Or not.
Another variable with slightly less impact is the amount of posts by other people.
I stayed up until 3 am to watch the Pistons beat the Nets last night. Bloody time zones. I didn’t do it because I’m a dedicated fan, but a fool for not getting sleep when I have an increadible amount of work to get done.
I feel like now that I am 21 years of age, to be 22 this year, in my 4th year of uni, in a hip graphic design major, that I should dress more…..adult? stylish? I’m not sure how to describe it. I feel like I dress as a teenager. But any time I put on ‘stylish’ clothes, I feel really awkward. Any time I put on new clothes I feel at least a little awkward, which I am glad for, but when they are stylish it really doesn’t feel like me. And not even really high fashion ‘stylish,’ it’s actually just the lowest, most common ‘stylish’ that I even bother to attempt and it just doesn’t feel right.
I miss driving.
So are these Danish cartoons that have offended Islamic people a breach of free speech? Why does there seem to be so much concern about the protests and so little about the people and culture that produced the cartoons?
Everyone in my year here is a first year. That either means it they are straight out of college (like the last two years of high school) or they took a gap year or went to a foundation school first. Either way, they are all 17-19ish – freshmen/sophmore. That makes me feel really young, even though I’ve been doing this for three and a half years. when I look at all the second and third years, they look to me like I am a first year looking at a second or third year, even though they are my age or younger. I don’t feel any sort of equality to them.
Go to seanaes‘ xanga and read the story from 1 Sept 2005 (it should be the most recent), was that Albert Einstien who said that? I’m not sure that is true.
