For those who haven’t noticed, I’ve enabled comments on my posts- you just have to visit my tumblr page (rather than through the Dashboard or an RSS feed) to make those comments. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the random things I post!
Write one leaf about nationalism. (via writeoneleaf) So I ask my students on their exam, “What is the relationship between nationalism and warlike aggression?” Most of them could barely define nationalism, and to define warlike aggression was to just put the words in a sentence (if that makes any sense at all). But what I was really surprised by was the fact that none of them...
I love the Doctor and I love Wilf. That is all. Well, no it’s not, but it’s really late so I’ll go fangirly on you tomorrow instead.

But to brighten things up...
My birthday was fabulous. I convinced Joe to buy a new computer, then we went to the nursery and bought basil plants. Next we went to the mall and bought girly fun stuff and new tennis shoes, and then I got all ready to go out tonight. We had a fabulous dinner at St. Clair’s winery and my friends came to my apartment, where the party continued with appearances made by Beatles Rock Band...
Just a note. Why do some people feel the need to date people who are terrible? Most of my friends have awesome ones (evidenced by those who came and celebrated my birthday tonight). Another who claimed me as a best friend is now dating a girl from a group who ostracized me during a hard point in my life…
One leaf: The UN
I’ve devoted the last five years of my life to studying the United Nations, from several different angles. I’m one of those “MUNerds” (Model UN nerds). I’m going to keep this short because I have work to do, but when I saw that writeoneleaf had a prompt about the UN, I couldn’t resist. I love what the UN has done, and being a liberal institutionalist, I tend...

Is the fight for women's rights limited to women...
My understanding is that a fight for women’s rights is a fight for human rights. While I thought this question would be difficult to answer at first, when I remembered that simple fact it became simple. A fight for any set of rights is the pursuit of freeing up that which we understand basic to our existence. If we look at it from a “feminist” point of view (which seems to be...
When you were little what did you want to be when...
When I was a child I wanted to be a giraffe. I went through the gamut of “usual” things- architect, president, astronaut, teacher- but giraffe really sticks out. My father was 6’5” and in comparison to my mother (5’), I thought he was pretty tall, which is just like a giraffe. So at the age of 3 I started telling people that that’s what I would be when I grew...

What can I say? It's luck.
Even factoring in any possible bitterness factor, I know that my best-looking ex-boyfriend seems to be getting uglier while my husband only looks better with every passing day. I just love that guy! Now followers, if you’re out there, I want to see your best submission of an “ugly” person (please, nothing gruesome) in the photo replies to this post. I want to laugh!
Who shot first?
Well obviously, the answer is Han Solo. But let us look further into the matter. Han shot Greedo first, but why would he feel threatened by Greedo at all? Greedo brought it upon himself; in trying to lessen the cost of his own ship’s repairs, he stole power couplings from the MILLENNIUM FALCON. Han Solo, in return, stole Greedo’s rancor-skin jacket. Greedo was understandably...

Whilst looking at Miis on my Wii
Me [Mandy]: Why does Andrea look so much taller than me?
Jacob: I think it's just her head.
Where did I go?
I’m not really asking you this, I’m asking me. I used to listen to music when I wrote. I used to write, but I only just started doing so again today. I think it all stems from a lack of regular classwork. With only three credit hours of classwork, I just kind of skim through my schoolwork, and then I focus on Model UN and GOVT 160, the two classes I teach. I didn’t really...
