I just realized, that each human has different religious, moral, ethical beliefs, different faiths, different modes of survival and action. But when you think about it, its really all just survival of the fittest eh? Could it be that humans are thusly different simply because they have 'adapted' to their individual physical and spiritual environments, and that these 'adaptations' will eventually lead to the survival of the human specie as a whole?
It's kind of sad. Sometimes I don't think humans deserve to survive because of how much damage we inflict upon everything around us, but at the same time am amazed and inspired by our intellectual capabilities and respect humans that much more. But I'm constantly told that humans are not a different entity from nature itself...so we are essentially only creatures that speed up the process of entropy (the part I hate), but that we're not really 'bad' because we're also a part of nature (the part I love).
O, and I'm 21. *massive bout of giggles* ;)

"Don't ever let somebody tell you you can't do something. Not even me. All right? You got a dream? You gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period."
..that is the GREATEST movie EVER!!!

...not really ;)
But, O my dearest goodness!
I am FINALLY DONE! The last few months have been SO trying! I felt like the ENTIRE time my feet walked around automatically, my hand scribbled notes furiously, and my brain fell off planet earth! *looks at it squished on planet Zarquon* (and its a mess)
I'm going to be 21 on Sunday!!! *eee* also, *pees pants*
I'm soooo excited, but kind of totally freaked out about this..I mean, it means i've got to grow up....pretty soon! *damn* All that responsibility in my hands! And I have NO CLUE what's going to happen on that day! *contemplates* *trembles*
O man, it has been so marvelous to NOT have school for a change. I got SO bored that I actually had a conversation with my labmate Dave Ruff about his and my definition of God. I think I confused him real well. :) But seriously, I haven't thought about stuff like that since man was created! *pun intended* And then, as if some Noodly Appendage blessed my phone...AMANDA CALLED!!! I had a massively huge bout of salivation. O man. It was soo good to hear her voice! That seemed like it hadn't happened since man was created either. *pun intended, again* And the next day, today, I woke my 'mature' butt up, dropped dad for a wicked load of meetings, and got my drivers license renewed. But o dear goodness, they just HAD to not tell me that it required taking the picture again, so my face looks like it's been mobbed by five thugs 1000lbs each, and my hair as if I rubbed it on a balloon, and my neck...well, the picture is so messed up its just my face. Damn those Secretary of State license controllers...I LIKED my old picture! *frowns* But I HAVE been called 'hot' TWICE this week! :) *heh* (I guess that's pretty uplifting..not) :) And THEN my gorgeous labmates signed this really cute card for me, saying how I should get drunk or that I should try a 'real' Piña Colada. (except for Dave Ruff, he went all "don't get drunk" on me) *haha* And they had a candle holder for me! *ee* And Jean got me the most ADORABLE little koala-bear adornment doo-dah for my car! I've been in love with those also since man was created, and am glad that one was finally created for me. :D
*wow..* That was quite a 'when man was created' rampage.
I'm SO happy. I am so happy to have the friends that I do. I love each and every one of them, and I thank he/she/it who created man to have blessed me with these wierdo's and nerds, because without them, I wouldn't be one myself. ;D
I LOVE YOU GUYS LIKE...um, LIKE A PROTON LOVES AN ELECTRON ?!

Ok ok..I know 10's more exciting than 11, but my birthday is officially 11 days away! *pees pants*
I'm so confused. SO CONFUSED! It's been amazing. I'm at some strange point at my life where i'm experiencing every possible feeling I can feel, all within the last semester. I've felt happy, sad, funky, mad, confident, totally depressed, crazy (but thats natural), and sane, and...um, if i listed them all I'd be dead..and wouldn't get to celebrate my birthday. ;)
I'm so proud of who I am, because I know I'm smart, funny, and not too ugly, and a lot more sane that other girls my age. I'm cultured, perhaps what I'm MOST proud of, because that way I'm open to so many different points of view, but can still defend my own. I also really like that I'm curious, and even that I don't know who I am or what I want to do in the future. If I did, I'd have nothing to live for. I have double-handedly (yes, people have TWO hands) made it through this ridiculous semester (almost over), and hopefully I'll grow a third arm this weekend to help me on the finals. *prays to the God of Arms*
I've also fallen in love, with the SAME dude, OVER AND OVER AND OVER again! *AA* I hate him one day, and love him the next. *eesh* But I'm glad to be experiencing it, otherwise I'll never know what love feels like! :D (On a similar note, I'm really confused about when dudes flirt with you and you don't really know how to react..any suggestions would be HIGHLY appreciated!)
Um, what else? O ..ofcourse, *drones* I love my friends and my family. This has been the first time that I've experienced SOME form of 'tension' or 'argument' with each and every one of my friends (and mom and dad), and I'm glad for it, otherwise our friendship would never know how to withhold itself in tough times and how to forgive and forget.
I have no clue what awaits me next (hopefully, a more 'mature' sounding voice would help). I can't wait to get done with college, to get DONE WITH WESTERN! *ugh* Done with my gazillion degrees, my research project and see it PUBLISHED somewhere! Leave to go to med school and start all over again! Except there's like this HUMONGOUS gap between when I graduate and when med school starts, and I have NO CLUE WHAT TO DO!!! *aa* *waits patiently to be touched by the Speghetti Monster's noodly appendage and enlighten me*
*EEEE* Can't wait for it all to begin! Actually..*epiphany* it already has! :D *skips away joyously*
SIDENOTE: For those of you who know me, know this: NEVER, EVER take my chocolate deserts! I am in love with chocolate, and get immensely jealous to see it give pleasure to someone else but me.

I highly recommend, that anyone, absolutely anyone who loves either literature, science, or medicine watch the movie Wit. I just watched it, and yes, it's one of those 'slow' ones, but incredibly powerful it is. It's about an english professor, an absolutely astounding scholar of the poetry of Donne, who has ovarian cancer and decides to take a trial drug for 8 months that might cure her. It's powerful I say, because so far, nothing has this clearly showed me the reality about health care. Nothing.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy, or charms can make us sleep as well,
And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.
