what do they really think of you by purple
Created with quill18's MemeGen!

In other news, you've probably noticed I have been living more in the "real" world than here.

Tis good and bad - or rather they both have their advantages and I always want more from both worlds - but such is life to crave and seek satisfaction of that craving, thus leading to always striving for something, always attempting to gain more - not necessarily materialistic-wise, in fact preferably (at least for me) spiritually.

I'm in school (YAY) tons and tons of reading
Computer is back (yay)
Cat is still missing :(
Hoping to get back to my book really soon, but not sure with all the reading I have for class.

I am thoroughly enjoying and relishing in my classes. I think for next semester my only suggestion to myself will be to take at least one or two "definite" classes. I say this with the meaning where math is definite and philosophy is not. I love discussion, but I also sometimes want to feel like something is accomplished. I'm not sure why, but I do.

Currently the two classes (my other two don't start until next week) are
"Preposterous Saints" basically discussing what is "good". Very complex question, lots of debating, especially within my own head, but interesting.
"Evolution and Human Sexuality" discussing how we came to view sex as it is - I think. I'll letchya know once I get further in.

Actually, interesting point made in the latter class today - somewhat off subject and having to do with me babble on "craving" from above - what is "intelligent" is it necessarily better than "wise" and who is to say what is "wise"? If you have not read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and plan on it, I would not suggest continuing with this paragraph. We went a bit offtrack from another subject and began discussing how we know that humans are "the most intelligent" beings on earth. The teacher used scientific research and the size of brains and what the brains accomplish (different horomone secretions and other functions). I then brought up the idea that it depends what you believe is "intelligent". For all we know mice are more intelligent. They don't do work, they play, they eat, they sleep, they have sex, and they repeat all this. Take, for a better example, a cat or dog who is taken care of and has to do nothing exept be loving and loyal. Why is it better to strive and always have goals and work towards something than to just be content with the world and love it and be happy to be alive? Something discussed in my evolution and human sexuality class is relevant in my religion class, who knew? <---Insert enigmatic smile with wide eyes--->

Anyhow, must finish a book for class tomorrow, which - if I have time tomorrow - I am going to post something from for magpiegeese that I think you may find interesting.

I hope everyone is wonderful

Yup, I'd be willing to bet you look good naked. ;-)

Sorry, I held that in as long as I could...

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your cat. But I'm happy about the other stuff.

Take care Sweetheart.

One good book to read if you are debating (in your head) on what is good, then may I sugest the book "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance". Its not what you think, it's Not about fixing motorcycles :)

One other point that we should all think about.
And I Quote "Why is it better to strive and always have goals and work towards something than to just be content with the world and love it and be happy to be alive?"
Well then we'll be exactly like mice :). No Computers, No Cars, No way of knowing anything other then the world that we live in. In otherwords No Science. I for one would love to have a life as a mouse or a Pet, but not for any long period of time :).
