Ok, so I fail at Livejournal so much. I feel like I should definitely get back in the habit of updating at a regular interval, because it's a super lame journal right now. Besides, a bunch of people in my anthropology class use LJ, so I am compelled to pay more attention to mine. I mostly use it to post on puckurt, which is my absolute favorite community EVAR. Seriously, I love those guys and gals so much.
I'm the first to admit that I'm completely clueless when it comes to formatting, or getting pretty layouts or anything, so I guess I'll stick with the boring ones. My neighbor's a computer science major, but he's as clueless as me, so that's out the window. Oh, speaking of majors: I want to change mine, BAD. I can't stand to be in the International Relations program any longer. I let my parents bully me into it because it was practical and I'd pretty much be guaranteed a job, but it's not what I want to do. Thinking about my future is making me really nervous-I don't want to be crammed into a career just to make my Dad happy. So, instead of International Relations with a focus on Latin America and a minor in Spanish, I want to switch to an American Studies/Women's, Gender and Sexuality studies major. I don't know if I'd minor in anything yet, but at this point I'm thinking maybe sociology.
This decision came from a lot of soul-searching I've been doing over the last couple months. I've always identified as bisexual, but after doing some research, I came to realize that the binary gender system is faulty and flawed, and categorizing people into only two genders isn't fair or right at all. So after some more soul-searching, nail biting and contemplation, I found that I AM attracted to people, in whatever forms they choose to embody. Really, if I like someone, I'm not going to let something like the sociocultural concept of gender hinder my potential love for that person. I identify as biologically and psychologically female, and I'm ok with that. I love and respect my body and it's capabilities, and I wish everyone else could attain that level at some point in their lives. And, instead of bisexual, I've migrated towards pansexual, which, if you haven't heard of it, I suggest you visit genderfork.com which has some wonderful information on sexuality and gender, plus gorgeous pictures.
And, dear LJ, that's what's been on my chest lately. Oh, I'm also iron-deficient and anemic or something like that. Screw college food.
