How was the new episode?  I'm working right now so I couldn't watch it.  Was it good? Bad? No spoilers, just tell me if I have something to look forward to ;)

Alright, so I'm kind of afraid of being in a regular elevator in the first place.  I still go in them and everything, but not one that extends all the way to space.  However, if this thing is built and they have vacations in space and stuff like that, I might just have to get over that fear.

For my Thinking and Writing class, we have been reading essays on Gender in terms of sexism (from the male AND female perspective), sexual identity, and marriage.  It was interesting to listen to my classmates and their views on marriage, i.e. same-sex marriage, divorce, and the effect these things have on children.  I'm interested in reading more opinions on these subjects if anyone would like to respond to me :)

For me, marriage is a commitment you make because you can't (and don't want to) see yourself anywhere except with that person.  It is a promise that you should keep for the rest of your life.  I don't believe in divorce as a solution to "we're just not getting along anymore," unless other solutions are sought and nothing rectifies the problem.  However, if abuse, verbal or physical, is involved, I can understand why divorce should happen.

When it comes to same-sex marriage, I don't see anything wrong with that.  People tell me that since I'm a Christian, I should believe that same-sex relationships are sinful, etc.  But I don't think the Bible should be taken verbatim.  For some things, yes.  But I think a lot of times, the things written in it were just written to reflect society at the time.  I think we need to consider things based on what would be best for society as a whole.  How is more love in the world a bad thing?  If you asked someone who is against same-sex marriage if more love in the world would be a good thing, I'm sure they would say yes.  But as soon as same-sex love was mentioned, it would suddenly be a different story.  That's kind of like hypocrisy, isn't it?

We also discussed the effect same-sex parents would have on children.  I don't see how it is any different from having a mom and a dad.  There are children who are abused and are raised badly from straight parents, but that is rarely the argument.  People say that if a Lesbian or Gay couple raise a child, their child will end up being Gay or Lesbian.  That doesn't even make sense to me.  It's all about the individual person.  Yes, a person's upbringing is probably the basis of that person's being.  However, aren't there people who were raised by straight parents, that ended up being gay anyways?  I just don't understand the argument here.

Any other opinions? I might not have written my opinion very well since I'm trying to hurry and express my thoughts before class, so I'm sorry if it's not comprehensible.  I'm interested in anything you have to say, regardless of whether you agree or disagree with me :)

I'm visualizing this word in my mind, but its location is unreachable.  I'm trying to think of a word to describe someone who only considers one point of view. Example: A woman wrote an article about how women are horribly abused by the media and that the influence the media has on society is why so girls are abused and objectified outside of the media.  She made some very valid points, but she said words like "maybe," "might," "probably," and "many" which made it seem less factual and more emotional.  She also made some female chauvinistic remarks AND implied that men do not have the same problems that women do from the media.  I found evidence that almost the same amount of men undergo the trials of women in this sense, but she just assumed that they didn't. 

What is a word that I could use for this author to describe her narrow-mindedness and assumptive attitude?

I just got a new, unopened, full series, boxed set of Star Trek: The Next Generation...

for $25.50!!!!!!!!!!!!

INCLUDING SHIPPING !!!!!!!!

I am SO. PUMPED! The seller got three copies for free at a movie gallery bankruptcy, and sold them on ebid.  I tried to get all 3 so I could sell 2 online for $250 on ebay since that's what they go for there, but someone outbid me in the last 3 seconds. That's okay though, because I got my own copy.  That amounts to $3.64 per season. GAH! No more watching TNG on Surfthechannel.com with Japanese subtitles :D :D :D :D :D

I am officially moved in to college. My dorm room is pretty sweet so I'm happy with it. I have to go to orientation stuff now, but I wanted to post really quickly that everything is now settled!!

P.S. My roommate is a junior so she won't be here until Sunday, which means no TV until Sunday, which means I can't watch Cheetah Girls: One World tonight. Lol, I still love Disney Channel idk why. But oh well, I'll just watch it on surfthechannel.com or something.

I bought these books thinking it would be my next fave series now that HP is done, and I read them once, but I don't want them. Would anyone be willing to buy them from me for $15 each? I bought them for $20 at Barnes and Noble, but since I used them and there are still in excellent condition, I figured I'd go down to $15. If you know anyone who might want them, please direct them here :) Thanks!

P.S. I know I haven't been very active lately. I started working after I graduated so I haven't been online much. Yay Chlark! I hope you guys are successful in making the writers realize Chlois should/will happen.
