So I pulled an all-nighter for no apparent reason. It could be the biggest blunder of my semester yet...actually, no. I had a very fun conversation with a friend of mine, and a few minutes before six this morning, I finished, Interpreter of Maldies, which is the best collection of short stories that I have read in a long time. Then, at 8:15, I was draggging myself across campus to hand in a paper that was due in a mailbox by the earliest 8:30. I wanted to get there early because I didn't want to wait and chat with the profs. who were going to be there. Jumped back in bed, woke up at 2, got some lunch and now I'm ready to tackle American Modernism for my exam at 8:30 in the morning. And, in being clear, I haven't even began to pack yet.

So, apparently we're friends with Lybia again and Bush wants to send troops to the border with Mexico. Personally I think those damn Canadians are a bigger threat. I mean, everyone's afraid of Mexico, before spring break, the health centre at my college advised students about the hazards of unsafe drinking water there. Seriously, if you were a terrorist trying to get across the border into the US, would you risk getting ill off some drinking water, or a smooth ride through Canada? Ok, that my have been borderline something. I am National Security's best friend though, I promise. Hail America.



So, I'm here at the comp trying to write a paper for Native American literature. It's due tomorrow (actually it was due about 2 weeks ago, but we'll get into that later) but since I have ADD (yet to be diagnosed) I went on facebook, which took me to Fox News' group, which took me to the webstite, which took me to a 'speakout' section on the NSA and I decided to add my incoherent two cents. It goes as follows:

If I were President, I would place certain restrictions on what the NSA is allowed to do with respect to spying on US citizens. I light of September 11th and other plots and threats that have been launched against the US since, I understand that the world in which we live in today is vastly different from that of the last decade, or even the last five years. However, the beauty about this nation, and the reason, I believe why it has continued to survive and withstand the test of time, is because certain unwavering principles are in place. Every generation creates a new set of obstacles that must be overcome, yet, the US political system asserts flexibility to overcome those problems and stands inflexible against the deterioration of other staple institutions and ideas. The ability to do these two things, often simultanously, has been the crux of the survival of this great country. Domestic spying erodes one of the cornerstone principles of this great democracy. Disrespecting citizens by violating their right to privacy may seem like the best reaction in light of recent world events, but it will not help to preserve our democracy. Broaching this subject requires an evaluation of the current situation as well as repercussions. Finding other means to deter terror is safter for this country in the long run.

This was my first time writing to Fox so...yeah. Ok, back to discussing Native Americans.


Blog Time


Summer is rolling around, which means, blogging season!

It has been a crazy year at school. I went from being a saint to a drunk, among other things. I fell in love then questioned it, and am still questioning it. Actually, I'm questiong a lot of things. I decided to be more studious and productive but quickly realized that I'm sill imature for college. What else...I broke tennis strings and fought people while drunk. I had off's and on's with old friends and made new ones. I watched "Golden Girls" whenever I could. I decided to go to grad school and pursue, at some point, a PhD in Gay/Lesbian Literature or Queer Studies. (Mom will love that one!) I went to more classes, albeit still intoxicated or hungover. And, I wrote for the school newspaper and became more politically active on campus.

Overall, good year. Now, I'm not home as yet and I don't know what I'm going to do when I get there. I have been looking at some job stuff but nothing good so far. Anyway, I'm going to keep my fingers crossed. I'm sure that I'll prob. end up making minimum wage while selling useless or expensive things for a retail giant. Fun. Nontheless, since I'll be home, I'll have more time to watch the news and stuff since I have no life and also, and more importantly, because I love to remain informed. (You can make your decision about which of those two is more accurate, or solely accurate)

Anyway, a friend of mine once told me that he doesn't take bloggers seriously because anyone can do it. He then conjuered up an image of people with no lives, many of whom have little education, who sit at the computers in their parents' basements and spew 'information' while dressed in nothing but bath robes and sipping coffee. I told him that it was the best image that I have ever had.

And I can't wait to be a part of that wonderful community.
