Jean-Jacques Rousseau

was a total jackass, can I just say? I mean, the guy was a total hypocrite. His whole philosophy was about how children should be nurtured and cultivated and their education should be carefully looked after. But the dude didn't care jack shit about kids. He had five illegitimate children (yes, FIVE, with this one woman who he didn't marry until, like, forty-five years after they hooked up), which he just dropped at random orphanages around Europe and didn't bother to check up on them or anything.
But does it matter that I think Rousseau was a douche bag? No. I still have to do a massive research paper and dress up as him and prove that he had this wonderful impact on history, when really, he was just mean. He was a meany poopy head.

Sick of Snow

There's supposed to be another snow day tomorrow. I'm not sure how I feel about this. I love days off of school to do homework (yeah, that's what I end up doing with my snow days - homework - I know, I know, I'm a freak), and for a while there, I could really appreciate the beauty of white wintery world outside, but I'm getting kind of sick of the snow. See, it's, like, cold, and, like, you can't drive, and when it "melts" it accumulates in these big ugly grey piles of slush on the sides of the road and in parking lots, and you have to wear waterproof shoes or it sops through and then you have to walk around with freezing wet socks for the rest of the day. And for your viewing pleasure...

This interesting... thing. It's awesome, isn't it?

The Mondays

Um, yeah. I have been trying to update consistently lately, to no avail. See, I actually think to go to blogger on a relatively consistent basis with the intent of writing a new post, and then I just sit there with the "New Post" box open and no ideas come out. My mind is a creative void. I blame school. I should just cut that out, and then everything would be A OK. Really. It would. Anyways, I had a fabulous new year at my friend's house

I've had a nice few weeks back to school, with so many snow days, I'm still not quite adjusted. In school district, it's always one lady who calls everyone's house to tell them that school is going to be cancelled, and she has a lot of fans here. I've seen t-shirts, facebook groups, and recently discovered a song that some teenage boys wrote for her. I'm not kidding.

One of my best friends, who shall be named Bob, gave me the link to this really awesome intensive language study abroad program. I now really want to go to India for a semester to study Hindi sometime in 2012/2013. GAH!!!! That would be so awesome!!!

Currently, I'm thinking about majoring in Conservation Biology. This is completely unrelated to anything; I just thought I'd throw that out there.

New York

If it were possible to marry a city, I would be married to New York. I'm in love with it. I plan on living there in a few years, and I can't wait. Being there makes me feel like I'm in the center of the universe, exposed to every idea and trend worth being exposed to. I love walking down the street and hearing and seeing people from so many cultures and walks of life. The diversity of New York City is something I think is unparalleled by any other setting. Anyways, I had a BLAST in New York with the fam. I went skating in Central Park,saw Jersey Boys on Broadway, went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, ate delicious pizza from John's Pizza (No Slices!) as well as the best BLT I've ever had in my life from a Deli somewhere on 8th avenue (I think...). Anyways, I had a blast, although the rest of the fam didn't seem to be having quite the blast as I. My sister was sick and got stuck in the hotel and my parents seemed to be tired. Oh well. New York is kinda my thing. It is my life partner.
