Should we just be handing over the car keys when kids turn 16? Why or why not?
I personally think 16 is a little too young to have full driving privileges, but I also think 18 is a bit too old. I believe that 17 is an appropriate age for people to be given full driving privileges; this allows them more time to acquire responsible driving skills and attitudes, and avoids just releasing 16-year-olds onto the roadways with little experience that may be prone to take more risks or commit more driving infractions.

My flashdrives have gone missing. Not good. Especially now, since my printer isn't functional. I've searched every crevice of my home....but to no avail.

The Good News: Only two more weeks until the semester is over!


The Bad News: My math final is at 7:00 in the morning.

Writer's Block: Wild Life

How long could you survive on your own in the wild?
Well, I'd like to flatter myself and say that I could survive in the wild indefinitely, but I don't really believe that. I honestly don't know. I'm certainly no Bear Grylls, and I've never had any formal survival training, so I suppose I'd only have my wits to rely on, which is not very comforting in such a situation. If food, water, and shelter was ample, I think I could survive for an extended period if I really tried.

Writer's Block: Musical Affliction

Have you had an earworm lately? Exorcise it by inflicting it on your friendslist. Post the lyrics or - even better - a video.
Funny this should be the Writers' Block of the day, as I am listening to my own personal "earworm" now as I write. I'm a theater geek, and I have a special place in my heart for musicals, my most recent obsession being Urinetown (yes, that is the actual title). Act One Finale is my current earworm and I have been carrying it around in my brain for around a month now. I won't write the lyrics though because the song is almost 6 and 1/2 minutes long and is a very vocally complicated piece.

music: Urinetown: Act One Finale

So I got a call yesterday. It was Big Brother. The U.S. Marines. They want me, but I don't want them. So for around twenty minutes this marine tried to convince me that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and that the military was the answer to my apparently useless life. The military just isn't in my plans, but I humored him and allowed him to send me some brochures, despite the fact that he lacks some very basic social skills and even inadvertently insulted me at one point. He says he's going to call me again to "check up". Guess who's not going to answer their phone when that call comes?

Would you ever go on a silent retreat? How long do you think you could go without talking?
If I had to I could go on a silent retreat. I've mastered the art of listening without adding my own personal opinion, so I think I could go for a good week or more without talking. Eventually I would want to speak again though; I do have things I want to say from time to time and after a while I'd need to say something.

Writer's Block: Witness Protection Name Change

People who enter the Witness Protection Program have to change their names. If you were in that situation, which new name would you choose?

Hmm, interesting question. I refuse to answer this question seriously though, because that would just be a terrible waste of a potentially-hilarious post. So anyway, if I were to rename myself, I would call myself... "Mabs McNatty"!

mood: whimsical

This semester is simply going way too slow for my liking. Break is still four weeks away? Intolerable. Unacceptable. Unfortunately, quite true. This was supposed to be the "easy semester"; I picked these classes for their perceived lack of academic rigor on my part. Who would have thought my teachers would be crazy, and my classes filled with insanity and lots of homework? Oh well. Maybe I'm just becoming a softie. Fortunately, little things like this don't break me; I have a GPA to maintain, and a little adversity is no match for my determination.

Here concludes my rant for the day.
