Ethan, my beloved son, has just informed me that he wants to move to Mexico and be an alpaca farmer.

I am wasting time before I have to go to my anthro lab. It's a special lab with the professor to earn my honors credit. I don't even know what that means or what the benefit is, but it sounds smart, so I guess I should do it.

I don't really know how I'm going to get done everything I need to do, but as I know from my copious years of life on Earth, it'll get done somehow.

My stress levels are not good, but I'm handling it well, all things considered.

Finally getting a haircut has done wonders for my attitude.

I'm also contracted to do the promotional photography for two local bands, for my going rate of two bottles of wines or alcoholic equivalents.

I am often asked why I don't peruse a photography career. Well, since you asked, I'll tell you - I would be relegated to a life of weddings and senior pictures and that would make me hate my hobby.

Expectations ruin everything.

I love that coat. It's almost worth winter just to be able to wear it for a few months per year.

I feel like writing a story about how self-reflective human consciousness is a prion disease born of early hominin cannibalism.

Actually, it's more like severe disappointment, but it's so hard to distinguis those two things lately.

The anti-intellectualism astounds me. Please return your advanced brain structure if you're not going to use it.

The people have not spoken - they opened their mouths and unlimited campaign dollars from multinational corporations (thanks to Citizens United) came out instead.

Somehow I have to get through a very long day without taking my anger out on strangers. I almost lost it earlier this morning when I heard a girl telling another girl that God does horrible things to you to break your will and turn you to Him. That it is wrong and arrogant to try to stand on your own in the face of tragedy, and that's why people turn to drugs and sex. And she was totally earnest. And then she moves right on to say how much God loves all of us and helps us, without even a hint of recognition of the logic conundrum she just created.

I find it amazing our species has lasted this long.

As well as a book to read. What the heck?

When I started this semester at the university, I heard people talk about the October/midterm slump. I'd not experienced that before. Now I get it.

I had a dream the other night that I was in a room of French speakers and I could understand them. It was awesome.

Please tell me you're going to vote tomorrow, United States citizens. An please vote Democrat. I don't care how disappointed you are. If Republicans and Teabaggers get elected, you will be even more disappointed.

This is going to be a weird week. Voting on Tuesday, lit film screening on Wednesday, Jacquelyn leaving on Thursday.

I'm starting to feel the effects of only working fifteen hours per week.

I wish I had time for Nanowrimo.

The idea of a singular "I" of consciousness is kind of silly sometimes.

Hey, kids! It seems like all i do is post about school lately. And that's because that's pretty much all that's going on. I took a logic exam today, which was not very hard. I'm getting a solid A in that class. Though French is really hard, I'm working hard and getting an A on the homework and a B on the tests, so who knows how that's going to average out.

I designed save-the-dates and those should be arriving from the printer any day now.

Jacquelyn and I have been going to a trivia night every-other Wednesday for a couple months. We're on a team with a couple friends. We're the Chupacabras. I did great on current events until the semester started and i stopped listening to talk radio every day. I am discovering, however, that i know a lot about movies and comic strips.

Ethan is back to his usual shenanigans- missing school work because he's spending all his time socializing. I don't know what was worse- his girlfriend distracting him or, now that he's single, the quest for a new girlfriend. It's pretty annoying though, always the same story from his teachers - your son is smart and creative and a joy to have in class, but he's always chatting and not doing his homework. Sometimes i wish i'd rajsed a more socially awkward teenager :P

Anyway, i think this is all the typing my poor thumbs can handle on this tiny iTouch. I need to read about whether race is a biologically meaningful concept.

P.S. The latest This American Life about frenemies is really good.

I'm like totally posting from my logic class.
Don't worry-it hasn't actually started yet.
