"All that is gold does not glitter. Not all those who wander are lost."
When the liberal says “race is a social construct,” he is not being a soft-headed dolt; he is speaking an historical truth. We do not go around testing the “Irish race” for intelligence or the “Southern race” for “hot-headedness.” These reasons are social. It is no more legitimate to ask “Is the black race dumber than then white race?” than it is to ask “Is the Jewish race thriftier than the Arab race?
wrote a paper on social constructs the other week. interesting stuff.

Hi everyone, it’s Erika. Addy didn’t log out on my computer while we were studying together ooooops. But she’s probably already asleep since those who follow our lovely Addikins on multiple social networks will also know that she fell asleep in the shower earlier and reached all time lows (not the band), thanks twitter!!!! But she (we) have a final tomorrow, in addition to several others throughout the week. So I’m gonna use my hack for good now and say that ya’ll should wish her luck on her finals (especially anthro, she’s kind of screwed for anthro). K THX.
(PS I love/know about the lives of half of you due to Addy and I’s conversations and the fact that half of Northwood came to Berkeley so heyyyy)
Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.

“We had been shooting so hard for the month previous, and that day we had been shooting for 13 or 14 hours,” Wilson says, “When they called, ‘And that’s a wrap on the television show The Office,’ I just burst into tears. At the same time, I felt relief and exultant joy. I compare it to V-J Day in Times Square, where it was like that photograph of that sailor kissing that girl and hats being thrown in the air. It’s a celebration but it’s also exhausting.”

what are your study tactics?Anonymous
Flip through my notebook pages to the beat of any Vampire Weekend song. Drink too many cups of black tea without milk because I ran out. Complain to anyone willing to listen. Complain to anyone not willing to listen. Eat late night. Watch The Office. Meet up with people to “study.” Cry.
But in all seriousness. I don’t have any tactics. I just make sure I have enough natural light and good music. No drugs. Nothing super fancy.
Before you study life, you should live some of it first.Jessica Pena (The Daily Californian) on graduate school
Yet high over the city our line of yellow windows must have contributed their share of human secrecy to the casual watcher in the darkening streets, and I was him too, looking up and wondering. I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.
