Ok, so we are only half way through the semester and my college already had 4 student suicides including 3 bridge jumpers.  My college has a big gorge going right through the middle of it, so we have half a dozen bridges that cross it, several people used these bridges to end their life.    :(



The university came up with a brilliant f*cking solution to the suicide problem.  They put giant ten foot high chain link fences complete with pickets and barbed wire on all the bridges, and on the scenic path that goes around the gorge.  The effect is depressing and aesthetically revolting since it makes the whole campus look like a concentration camp.  It is a cynical bureaucratic fig leaf, as if people will not find another way to kill themselves.  Its not going to prevent any suicide, and the rest of us have to deal with a campus that looks like the DMZ.  Instead they should provide better counseling and maybe not work the premeds and engineers nearly as hard as they do.  Heck, open a strip club on campus and I bet the suicide rate would go down in half.

Yes, although these days it look more like a gulag  :-\

Since I put Totoro on the top of my Netflix queue and on hold at the library IN NOVEMBER, at least five filmspotters have been able to watch it and post reviews.  I WANT MY TURN!  :'(  Waaah!

Got very drunk. Was called ugly to my face by friends of a friend. Got in a huge screaming fight with one of my best friends in the middle of the street.

 :(. Hope things work out.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I know it probably doesn't mean much coming from me Carly, but trust me, anyone who calls you ugly is a complete moron, you are the very definition of beautiful.

Plus, anyone who's BFFs with me and corndog has to be a catch.
