ego trip
I don't know what to say. Increasingly this feels like the wrong platform. But I've tried: livejournal, xanga, facebook, blogger, myspace, and tumblr... Also I have a whatsit called. Wordpress that I never use. Ha.

I go on the blog of a friend I like and used to talk to--entirely my fault, I didn't really appreciate her back then, but these days I realize she's really a remarkable girl and I wish we were still friends, but I'm pretty sure I wrecked it thoroughly simply by not taking the time to reply--

Oh well.

The thing is, in stories, when you meet someone you like, you or they take an active interest in advancing the relationship and you spend time together, but

in real life, it's really a very passive thing, you make friends who are convenient in your busy life--unless they are trying to sex you. Or that is just my sad experience.

The biggest complaint about college is it is so achievement-focused, people put relationships on the back burner. It doesn't really bother me. Does it bother you? I can sit in my room for half a year and be fine. The internet is full of wonders.

The complaints about the lack of support networks came in the wake of the unprecedented student death rate here. Four students died in the first two months of this semester. Two suicides. One highly publicized because she was young and pretty.

When I hear about suicides, I always fantasize about stopping them. If only I were right there, right then, I could've grabbed the person.

Regardless, life goes on, as it does. I don't like dwelling on the suicides of people from supportive, well-to-do families. On a related note: suicide rate is highest in wealthy neighborhoods and is correlated with income--

The weather is great and I have all A's so far. Isn't that amazing? I have an A- in organic chemistry.
