... the word that best describes my life right now.
At least I have my weekends! :)
I know the A&M football team stinks, but the games are still fun, and the students are still enthusiastic. An Aggie football game is definitely an experience... and maybe too intense for some
Gossip bothers me... actually gossip REALLY bothers me... actually gossip really bothers me A LOT.
I consider gossip to be talking about people behind their back by judging or spreading something. It absolutely appalls me when someone spreads rumors about someone else. Especially when what they're saying isn't true and even no where near the truth.
I hate how when one person does something whether it be good or bad before they have a chance to share the good news or correct and move on from the mistake, half the people they know already know about it. This deprives them from getting to see the expression on their friends faces when they share something exciting with them, or causes unnecessary embarrassment.
Some people need to learn what is and what ISN'T their business. It is completely wrong of someone to make assumptions based on unconfirmed statements or trumped-up stories. Confronting someone about their private life and personal business should not be done based on those things or in public. This only encourages the rumor mill. The very thought that someone would be so unloving and so tactless that they would spread gossip behind another person's back or even to their face in front of a group of people.
Secondly: Anonymity should not be stolen from those who wish to remain anonymous.
This ties in a lot with what I was saying about gossip. It is disturbing to me that I (or any other person) can give my anonymous opinion and then later be judged on it because some one recognized my hand-writing or just took a guess. It is horrifying the way some people judge others. It is another blatant invasion of privacy.
Privacy invasion hurts.
I hate the holier-than-thou attitudes of sanctimonious people. People who believe they are better Christians than others because they don't wear a swim suit, don't dance, don't watch certain movies. Any of these can be taken in context. What kind of swim suit? What kind of dancing??
All of this seems to tie back in to one thing: gossip.
And, gossip is one of my biggest pet peeves... if you couldn't tell. ;)
My family and I (and the 12 other people staying with us) made it through Ike! There was no damage, no injuries, but also no electricity for some of our friends.
Excluding Ike, I've had a pretty good fall semester thus far. School is going well. I have four classes this semester: Government, American Literature, Chemistry, and Spanish II. I've also begun driver's ED, which is a pain, and makes me appreciate being home schooled. I've also joined iCom speech and debate club, so that's another thing adding to my busy week.
The weekends make it all worth it though. :) On weekends like this one, we drive up to College Station for an A&M football game. I get to see Jordan, and we hang out and go to midnight yell the friday night before the game. Overall it's a really fun, really full, really exhausting weekend.
"Ignorance is bliss"... or so they say.
Actually I believe that ignorance of being ignorant is bliss.
Think about it.
If you know you don't know something, then you are generally unhappy or unsatisfied because you are curious- curious about that which you do not know.
If you don't know you don't know something, then you have no reason to be curious, unhappy, or unsatisfied, because you don't know that you're out of the loop.
Sometimes, I think that sometimes the less you know, the better off you are.
And those are just some of my random thoughts of the week.
