11:41 am - redeeming qualities
What motivates you?

What makes you good, desirable, reputable, entertaining, moral, polite?

What is responsibility?
What is maturity?
What is aesthetically pleasing?
What is normal?
Who decides?

What is contentment?


I have been pondering and praying about these topics lately. I'm curious to read your thoughts.

Thank you all for your support!

10:28 pm - What's this we have here? A post!? *faint*
Uh, hello? Wake up, reader. *slap* Are you all right? Sorry to shock you like that; I'll try to ease you into it more smoothly next time, I promise.

Anyway, hi there! I just wanted to let you know that this coming Saturday afternoon I will dress up in a long black robe and funky-looking hat, then, upon hearing my name, I will walk up in front of a large group of people and be handed a piece of paper. I will not be alone, though; there will be many other people in very similar attire performing the same odd actions. The whole ordeal is part of what is known as a "midyear commencement ceremony" or just "commencement" for short.

In other related news, today is what is popularly called "Dead Day" (not to be confused with "El Día de los Muertos"), though the university seems to have changed the day's official name to "Study Day." I've been trying to use this day to try to finish up some long overdue papers that must soon be turned in. Anyway, this being finals week, there are a few exams I need to take:

Art History Survey to 1450: Tuesday @ 3 p.m.
Principles of Sociology: Wednesday @ 3 p.m.
Analysis of Algorithms: Friday @ 1 p.m.

In addition to finals, I also have an interview at GE Security in Tualatin tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11 a.m. I'm really nervous and I feel somewhat under-prepared, as, due to typing papers and studying for finals, I haven't been able to spend enough time prepping for the interview..

So there you have it. An update from yours truly. You will now be transferred back to your regularly-scheduled life, already in progress.

current mood: busy

4:07 pm - To borrow from Grant...
Paranoid much? Perhaps the girl should've thought of the potential correlation between her device and a bomb, but, in my opinion, the reaction to it was/is ridiculous.

current mood: disappointed
