I have an exchange student and boy is it a struggle to get her to do stuff that she needs to do. Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with her doing whatever she wants, but I don't want her to get lost in a strange town on a different continent from her home.

Thank you, this was a very detailed answer. Biden is a bastard unaware of all that happened, as are most other candidates, I think.

your experience in Australia though... I can only imagine how that must have sucked. Even if you aren't the biggest fan of the U.S., it's not right to say that 3,000 people deserved to die.

Your instincts were right it seems. things did get worse, and quickly too. They haven't gotten better either, in my opinion. In less than a month, kids will be able to sign up in the army to fight in a war they weren't even alive for the beginning of. Though I am generally anti-war, this especially seems like a crime in this day and age, where even the longest wars typically last only 10 years.

I know one or two other than myself, but there are probably thousands or even millions worldwide, and even more if you consider those who hold anarchist views but don't call themselves anarchists.

Started my first bit of Marching band this week. I am absolute shit at playing the trombone, but at least I can fake it and march well enough.

Ancom, though Raddle has made me see the value in primitivism more than I had before. Still not sure if I like that change or not, but it happened regardless.

I have to go visit my grandma and other extended family members today and this weekend. Not looking forwards to it, they typically just insult me and this time probably won't be any different.

I think that in the times of hunting and gathering, it was possible to live a green existence. But I don't think that once agriculture and farming were discovered that it was possible. When you can get that much food and you have that many people, I don't think it's possible to leave no trace on the environment. As soon as people start settling in one place, that place is doomed.

Stage. I didn't know it was Disney at first, and I admit when I found out it kinda turned me off. Still a good musical though. Kinda put Pulitzer in a new light. I had never really thought of him as anything other than just some author guy before.
