Do you believe there is other intelligent life in distant galaxies? If no, why not? If yes, do you believe this is something to be feared and avoided or actively sought out?

It's pretty much mathematically impossible for us to be the only living creatures in the universe. There are billions of galaxies with billions of stars and even if just a fraction of those have planets that could support life...See what I mean? And as far as them being something to fear goes, aren't we a little scary ourselves? I'm sure the presence of good and evil at the same times ins't something unique to our planet. 

It would be much more surprising if there wasn't life on other planets. Who knows, maybe god is using each planet like an extra life in a video game.

You Are a Beard

You are mature and self-assured. You march to your own beat, and you can get away with being a little different.

Some may accuse you of having something to hide, and while that's not exactly true, you do like to keep to yourself.

You have a bit of a mad scientist personality. You love to experiment and tinker with things.

You are stable and steady. You don't get flustered easily, and you have a high threshold for stress.

As an English major, I have to pull hidden meaning out of literature. Some people may not even see the meanings and symbols that I do, but they're there. It may become a problem, though, when I begin doing the same thing in my own life. Why must I overanalyze, scrutinize and obsess over every little thing?

 I came home sober last night and didn't go out at all tonight. My roommates must think I've been body-snatched. 

Went to the first meetings of both "Short Cuts" (the undergrad literary magazine for short fiction) and the English Society, which puts out "Jabberwocky" (which takes all undergrad literature but seems to publish mostly poetry). They both seem like awesome groups. I can't wait for the meetings this week. I think I've really found my 'group' with the English Society. Predictably, there's  some cross-over between the two magazines as far as staff goes. Apparently in the past there was some rivalry, but it's nice to know that now that's not going to be an issue. Why fight when we're all in it for the literature anyway. 

Oh! Sherman Alexie is coming to campus this Thursday! We've been reading his work in my English class and I'm really enjoying it. I can't wait to hear him read in person!

I'm also kind of afraid that I have mono. I've been really tired lately and I did have a sore throat that was really red. Like, so red the doctor made a face when he saw it. But I haven't had a fever or anything, so I'm thinking it's not mono, right? Also, my throat's a lot better now. 

I don't want my spleen to explode!

If you get more than 30, get some counseling.
If you get more than 20, you’re paranoid.
If you get 11-20, you are normal.
If you get 10 or less, you’re fearless.
People who don’t have any are full of BS.
