 I feel weird tonight, flist. I'm sitting in my dorm room alone, watching Nu!Trek. It's the end of parents weekend, and it was nice seeing my mom and dad, but I feel weird about the entire experience. I've changed a lot in the past two months that I've been in DC, and it just seems like the more I get comfortable here, the less I feel comfortable with what I was used to. I don't know. Ehhhhhh.

 I hate my World Politics class. This is why I brought my laptop and am doing work (well, posting on LJ and facebook stalking my friends) instead of taking notes. That is all. Carry on with your regularly scheduled programming.

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

 I just got back from the internship fair. So far, I've got some mixed feelings. There were a bunch of government organizations (no surprises there, I'm in DC) like the CIA, EPA, FBI, DOD and other things that I don't care about and am not remotely interested in. I did give my resume to the AIDS Alliance, and something called The New Gay, which seems to be some sort of blog. Getting an internship is going to be difficult, what with me being a freshman and all. On top of that, I'm not even sure if I WANT an internship. I know that I need one, and that it would really help me in the long run, but I just kind of want to...exist for a little bit, not have to worry about where I'm going next. I realize that the internship wouldn't be until next fall, but still. So, I just sent an email to the woman from the AIDS Alliance about a position in a program called Girls 4 HOPE, which is about educating young women about AIDS and HIV. 

On another note, my best friend/husband is not happy at his university. He's at University of Wisconsin-River Falls, which as I understand is in the asscrack of nowhere. He feels out of place, and that really upsets me. Matt's helped me through so much shit and it kills me to see him unhappy. Apparently, their Gay Straight Alliance is really active and that's a good thing, and he's on his hall council, but he's still unhappy. The majority of his friends are gay (like him), but I guess they ignore him, and he's not happy with the courses he's taking. So, he wants to come to American, which would make me beyond ecstatic, but I don't want him to make any rash decisions. Of course, I'd be head over heels if he transferred next year, but I just want him to do it for the right reasons. American's known for it's international studies program, not their science department. 

Eh. I've got Math tonight and then I really, really REALLY should read for World Politics, but I don't want to. Oh, decisions, decisions.

 I'm happy today, you guys. It sounds weird having to tell people that I'm happy, but it varies so much nowadays. My meds are still fucked up, and I'm still adjusting to college life here in DC. If you're facebook friends with me (and if you aren't, hey! let's do it!), you've seen my changed relationship status. Yeah, I'm married. Justttt kidding. Me and my college bestie Tim decided to make it facebook official. We're looooooovers. Hahahha, sorry guys. I'm like, giddydrunk right now. la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahomg.

 So I went from being miserable, to being ok, to being ecstatic, to being overwhelmed in a weekend. I went to the best club ever-it's called Town. So. Much. Fun. I'm tired, and I'm getting sick. But, I've had two job offers in the past 6 hours, so that's good. It's just babysitting in the surrounding area, but being without a car is going to be problematic. Not that I'd want to drive in DC in the first place, but it'd just be easier to get around if I had Elphaba with me. I just went through some MAJOR facebook revamping-now my about me isn't Jay Z's "99 Problems", which has the potential to be a career killer. Blah blah blah, I'm going to go write a paper now!

 I'm not happy with anything. Not with my body, my grades, my medicine, or the person inside me. So I'm done eating for a while. I'm gonna try to stick to raw foods and clear liquids. Whatever.

 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.

Would you rather work at a job that you enjoy but pays little or work at a miserable job that pays a lot?

First question listed was submitted by onmyoji_youkai. (Follow-up questions, if any, may have been added by LiveJournal.)

Probably going to say the miserable one, because to be perfectly honest, money CAN buy me happiness (wow, that looks really horrid all typed out). But seriously, I'd rather have a lot of expendable money to do things I enjoy (travel, eat and drink at nice places, see A LOT of Broadway shows, buy books and spend ridiculous amounts of money on higher education) than to make little money doing one thing I enjoy. Heh, I'm shallow as fuhhhh.
