Everyone had an uncle who tried to steal their nose.
thanks kylie for the blog post. funny but so true.
I sometimes hate thinking about how insignificant my problems are in the grand scheme of things. reality check.
So this is the finished result of the project that two friends and I had been working on for our social psychology class. We ended up having a lot of fun doing it.
Also people are interesting. And I love my major. We obey authority (the sign), even in this ridiculous spot, without any reason as to why. The power of a situation, and even a simple command can influence actions. Incase you were wondering: 51% obeyed the male and female signs 36% did not obey, and 13% avoided the doors.
I find it quite entertaining the way a Liberal Arts Christian College can change so drastically due to one phenomenon… The housing selection for next year. I opted out of that last year, my roommate and I stayed put, and next semester I will be abroad. It definitely is funny to watch everyone else hash it out over the best building on campus, singles, suites, doubles, quads, blah blah blah. It’s only funny because I don’t have to deal with the stress of picking the right number to in the lottery. The backstabbing, the disappointment… yes it is very entertaining.
sometimes i think i’m the only one that doesn’t think that marriage is the ultimate goal in life.
today I am thankful that I am a healthy young woman. It’s not until I get a bit sick that I realize how great I have it. Thank you Lord for making me well and able. Don’t let me forget how lucky I am
I was just wondering about an old friend that popped up on my news feed, so I clicked on the picture. I didn’t do too much exploring (creepin’) and I thought about how I should give her a call some time. I got so sad thinking about how when people miss friends, they just go look on their facebook page for a few minutes, read their most recent statuses, maybe check their recent photo albums, and boom. You’re done. Attachment-free, emotion-free, investment-free, commitment-free friendship. I mean, look out! If you’re feeling a little friendly you might write on their wall with an original “Heyyy girl how have you been, miss you like crazy” or if you’re feeling a little crazy you might even inbox message them so its more, “personal” of course. I miss contact, like a random phone call from someone you haven’t talked to in years. That never happens anymore.
I’m scared, honestly. I don’t want technology to have such a drastic way of changing relationships and behaviors (maybe it’s the psychology student in me). It’s happening and inevitable on a large scale, but I have power over my own actions. I’m guilty of this all the time. It allows you to be a friend when you’re bored or online, but I hope for consistency and commitment in my friendships.
So to my old friend: I may be calling you sometime soon. I’m sorry that I’m not a better friend.
It’s crazy how just a few days can change the course of events, never underestimate what a small interaction can do to you. I am astounded right now at how life works. I don’t understand, and I know I never will.
