“I thought, Will anyone be the better for making me miserable? And the answer came back, no. No one will. There’s no one to fret, no one to condemn, no one to bless me for being a good girl, no one to punish me for being wicked. Heaven was empty. I didn’t know whether God had died, or whether there never had been a God at all. Either way I felt free and lonely and I didn’t know whether I was happy or unhappy, but something very strange had happened. And all that huge change came about as I had the marzipan in my mouth, before I’d even swallowed it. A taste, a memory, a landslide.”—The Amber Spyglass; Philip Pullman (via cake-light)
and I’ve been following all the turmoil that’s been going on in the East too, but I really don’t think the United States should get involved. The US is fucked enough as it is and we shouldn’t continue to get involved in others’ affairs. We’ve done that too much as it is. If we were to get involved in Libya, we’d just be hurting our country more. Our economy has come back from the brink of collapse, but we really can’t afford to go and get involved when we have so many other matters we haven’t resolved. We can’t just rely on the US to step in every time something bad happens, regardless of how horrible or atrocious it may be.
Everyone’s gone home from college for the three day weekend. I don’t even know what I’m going to do to occupy my time until then. I think I’m going to have some of my hometown friends visit, but that prolly won’t be that much. I feel like I’m going to be bored out of my fucking mind.
