Dominate Spanish test and get out of class an hour & a half early. Celebrate with .99 margaritas until you have to go to a study group at 9. Seems right to me.
I will not fight with morons on the internet.
inthefade: I will not fight with morons on the internet. I need to remember this sometimes
First class cancelled!
Too bad I didn’t see that email until I had already gotten out of bed, showered and dressed. So in absence of class I’m going to attempt to start doing couch to 5k again in hopes of fighting back what I’m calling my relationship weight.
Contact Mayor Bloomberg
inthefade: You can use this form to contact the Mayor and let him know how pissed off you are about the NYPD supervisor pepper spraying penned up, non-violent protesters today. This is a god damn disgrace and we need to make sure people are held accountable.
terowlinson: Fine. I guess I’ll use tumblr again. Glad I convinced you. Friends don’t let friends blogspot.

This whole thing pisses me the fuck off. I disappointed in our country, in our justice system, in our society. The fact that we still have the death penalty is ridiculous. The fact that we have people in this country that are celebrating this execution is pitiful. The fact that out major political parties are no where to be found in all of this is pathetic. I’m so let down by all of...

Bull shit. Fucking bull shit.
tbridge: inthefade: I saw this and had go to her site to make sure this was really her twitter because surely someone who considers themselves a professional author, columnist, etc. would never tweet something like this, right?

children, free lunches and class.
inthefade: I’ve been thinking about socialism. Or, what passes for socialism these days. I’ve been thinking about class warfare, about taking from the rich to give to the poor, about from each according to his abilities to each according to his needs. I’ve been thinking about why so many people in this country are hell bent against helping those who need it. It all comes down to the...
Fuck job creation.

It’s so awesomely cold right now that I’m dressing in layers. My outer layer just happens to be my K State debate team tracksuit from 2 years ago. Now I’m just waiting for Nick to get home to experience it’s awesomeness. He will most likely see what I’m wearing and immediately turn around and leave the house. Whatevs.

If you haven’t downloaded The Kooks “Junk of the heart” album that dropped today you are missing out. I mean seriously. The kooks just solidified their place as my favorite band. It’s an amazing album.
