I finished Algebra.

Woot! \o/
Jan. 19, 2011.

I'm thinking I should start updating my journal every so often with school updates again. I was looking through my post history and I really enjoy seeing my progress. That's the other thing, it will help me keep track of my progress. I'm pretty tired of never remembering when I sent out an exam. :\

Today I'll, probably, be sending out my final exam in Algebra. If not today, tomorrow.
Lately I've been having negative thoughts along the lines of wondering why it has taken me so long to finish Algebra. Even though I know the reason, procrastination. But, I've also been trying to counter it with the positive that I'm, practically, finished with Algebra. Which is an accomplishment, and I shouldn't beat myself up about it taking me a while. :)

Writer's Block: Cause or symptom?

Do you believe that violence in media promotes violence in real life? Does media reflect cultural values or can it actively reshape them?


I don't believe it necessarily promotes violence in real life. Though that doesn't hold true for some, I believe the majority of people know not to go out and commit violent acts against someone just because someone else did.
However, I do believe it has an effect on the psyche. It causes us to become desensitized to a point where truly horrific things no longer faze us. It's just par-for-the-course. Which is actually quite disturbing.

As for media reshaping cultural values, I believe it can. The media is powerful, and anyone who doesn't think it isn't is ignoring the enormous power media has over how we view ourselves, each other, and others.

Writer's Block: Sticks and stones

What is the worst insult you've ever received from someone? Were you able to forgive them?

The worst insult would have to be what my "best friend" said to me.
"That's why everyone hates you."
At the time I was joking about not tipping the waitress, as my tip was only 15-20 cents. In return, I get told everyone hates me. I didn't know how to respond at the time, and was upset with myself for not being more self sufficient, so that I could walk out and leave. Instead, I sat there flabbergasted and hurt, and having to bite my tongue for fear of not having a ride home.

As for forgiveness, I feel I have forgiven her. I'm still friends with her, though I don't feel as close to her as I used to.

 I've decided not to continue with the 101 in 1001 challenge. Lately it's been sitting in the back of my mind eating away at me. Instead of inspiring me to get things done, it's only been dampening my spirits.
I'm still going to keep a check list for the most important things, and I'll check them off as I go. But I'm not going to be taking up the 101 in 1001 challenge. At least not right now. Maybe in a a year or two, with a better list.

I Am Legend drama

 I watched it solely because U-Kiss was in it, or going to be in it? Sources say they're in there, but I just finished the series and I have yet to see them. The first group was Bye Bye Sea, or something like that, and the second one at the end isn't any of them. :(
I'm pretty sure Teen Top is the group in the very beginning that you see on stage performing when SooIn is at work. So where is Kiss Band? Does anyone know? :(
I was really looking forward to seeing them in it.
