It is 3a in Champaign right now. It is snowing, and has been consistently since about 6p this evening. The outside world looks like a very pretty and delicate winter wonderland.
I dont understand why majority of the girls who live in the sorority next door to me are all leaving the sorority dressed in white dresses and walking towards the quad…
where are they going?
I dont understand the cultish behavior I am often witness to in this sorority…
if anyone knows what they are up to, please share.
My study is almost completely over. It has been the most chaotic month I have ever had. The animal study is done, so now its just dealing with samples and lab work <- much easier.
I really need a vacation.
An elephant stretches up to reach some tasty pods from the branches of a tall tree. It is thought this elephant, a 40-year-old male, is the only one of his herd who has learned how to do this. The rare sight was caught on camera by photographer Etienne Oosthuizen, who manages the Old Mondoro Bush camp in the Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

its fascinating to see evolution up close and personal.
What will we evolve into?
I was under the impression that the ideas “library” and “quiet” were synonomous…I guess no one else in Champaign feels that way…
I have decided to start some sort of martial art. I am going to try and join one of the clubs on campus in the fall, when the new semester starts. I have never done martial arts before, but I like the combination of physical activity, self-defense, and self-control (through mind/body) that it all entails. It seems right up my alley.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of martial art I should do? I really don’t know much about each of them, only what i have read.
We have judo, jujitsu, karate, taekwondo, and kuk sool won on campus. Does anybody know anyone who has done martial arts and really liked or disliked any of the above?
“Turn on the television. We have a wedding channel on cable TV devoted to the behavior of people on the way to the altar. They spend billions of dollars, behave in the most appalling way, all in an effort to be princess for a day. You don’t have cable television? Put on network TV. We’re giving away husbands on a game show. You can watch The Bachelor, where thirty desperate women will compete to marry a 40-year-old man who has never been able to maintain a decent relationship in his life. That’s what we’ve done to marriage in America, where young women are socialized from the time they’re five years old to think of being nothing but a bride. They plan every day what they’ll wear, how they’ll look, the invitations, the whole bit, they don’t spend five minutes thinking about what it means to be a wife. People stand up there before god and man even in Senator Diaz’s church, they swear to love honor and obey, they don’t mean a word of it. So if there’s anything wrong with the sanctity of marriage in America, it comes from those of us who have the privilege and the right and have abused it for decades.”
THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH.
Its absolutely ridiculous…
Where no matter what happens I am continually annoyed.
I cant handle people today. Its in your best interest to stay away from me…
It is the soft pink nose. That is what does it every time.
I want one so badly… too bad they grow to be the size of a car…
