You cannot ever be inside someone elses head. You can never know exactly how they feel or what they are thinking.

Sometimes I have a problem remembering this, and I assume that I know how and why people are doing the things they do. Maybe this is because I really wish I did know. My freshmen year English teacher said that every single person as a reason behind everything they do. Nothing is done without a meaning in the person's head.

As convinced that you or I may be that we know he exact motivation behind an action, we can never be positive. Everyone needs to remember this. You wouldn't be happy if someone assumed they knew exactly how your mind worked, so why would you assume that you know their mind?

Sigh. This is just my general musing on humanity for the day. It's making me kind of sad.

Cool twice!

Ok, I'm just going to say right now how cool it is that the editor of Watchmen and Philosophy commented my blog.

I am saying this because it is a very good book to read if you love Watchmen. I love Watchmen, so it is a very good book for me to read and so far, the three chapters I've read have answered multiple internal questions which I though I'd always have swimming in the back of my mind. Example, Dr. Manhattan and his unique... condition(?) which renders him an emotional cripple. What's up with that? Well, now I know, and you'll just have to go read it to find out. Unless unlike me you're capable of trusting your own opinion without affirmation of some kind that you are indeed correct, which I need and like to have about most things. This is why I enjoy the Blackwell Philosophy and PopCulture series, I like to be able to see if my opinions match up with those of professionals.

And now it sounds like I'm sucking up to said editor (Mark D. White), and I guess I kind of am. Except that what I'm saying is truth, and sucking up usually consist of lies. This book is just really, really awesome.

I got my "Watchmen and Philosophy" book in the mail a few minutes ago. I don't even know why I'm typing this instead of reading it right now.

What could I title this?

Bella won't leave me alone! I'm trying to eat my tofu and she wont stop trying to steal it off of my plate. It's irritating, I just want to eat my tofu.

Dumb tofu stealing kitty.
Bella! Booger doesn't steal my tofu! Booger is the good kitty.

I thought I was going to have more to say in this blogpost but apparently I don't, because all I can think about it the kitties!
This picture is of Bella. She may not look like a food-snatcher, but she is!

The Antebellum Period

So many essays, so little time. I have been writing for hours now and am only half way through my midterm essay on the different effects of paternalistic v. economic slavery in the antebellum period of the US. That's a mouthfull.

I'm tired. Writing essays when your tired is difficult.

Today has been excellent. Forecasted for next quarter classes, and I am going to have a very cool schedule for spring. Monday/Wednesday History of Film from 12-1:50 then Tai Chi at 3 for an hour. Tuesday/Thursday Psychology from 2:30-4:50. I'm really excited! Next quarter is going to be my play quarter. :O!

About 100 pages into No Country the book. It's so weird how precisely the Coen Bro's adapted that book to the movie, almost every single line is the same. I think I might like reading it more than I liked watching it, though.

Also, My Chem. Romance should never remake a Bob Dylan song again, I think it might crush my soul into tiny little bits. This one was bad enough. Don't care that MCR is in Watchmen, whatever, it's just a soundtrack and has no real relevance to the movie, but please, don't deface the amazing genius that is Bob Dylan. Please never again.
