succumbing to peer pressure

Tuesday, March 11, 2003

Bah. I have nothing interesting to say as the only thing I do these days is work on my project...well, that, and my midterm. Because defending my MS project in 17 days really wasn't enough to do, I needed a midterm to complete too. But I s'pose I don't really have the right to complain as I seem to have found the time to go to New York City for a few days this weekend...but damnit, I need and deserve a vacation, right? Anyway, doesn't matter, I'm going, regardless of whether I deserve it or have time for it.

In other news, watched Friend or Foe for the first time tonight and it was a shocking demonstration of the selfishness of humanity. Guess my little idealistic being just prefers to think that people would split money rather than be greedy and risk losing it all. Or it was just yet another blow after the disheartening poll reported in the NY Times. As Amelia said, 45% of Americans believe Saddam was personally involved in the 9-11 attacks. WHAT?! I keep walking around, believing that when presented with the truth, members of our society are capable of drawing logical conclusions. I'm not totally naive, I know there are a lot of stupid people out there. I just didn't think it was that large a proportion of our society. So depressing. All right, enough. Carrie has convinced me to join her in a cig, even if it is a camel instead of our usual p-funks. Bah again.
