I think... I was glued to the tv... cursing in Portuguese. Singing praises in Spanish. Perverting my mind with dirty images of Portugal's sexiest attribute Cristiano Ronaldo. The things... I would do to that man..... sorry... http://tinyurl.com/22r63muI miss you guys. And I just wanted to drop by to say hi... HI! I've been working and then I went to Brazil for my cousins wedding and to visit... well actually I was bribed with 50 dollars, a free roundtrip plane ride, and brownies... I was sold on the brownies alone....And now I'm back in New York sulking about the loss but trying to enjoy my summer before I have to go back to hel- I mean... school. and I dyed my hair dark red, got knocked up, and on crack... jk... but I did dye my hair and it looks retro.... ok I'm done. oh and this song is awesome!

    It's a good experience.A good majority of my friends from campus are Muslim and they've been showing/teaching me their traditions and what not. It's pretty awesome. I'm going to India and Pakistan with a couple of them next spring. Uber excited

    You shouldn't be ashamed to be a virgin. I don't necessarily know about respecting a girl more because she's a virgin. What if a girl is raped? Is she not respected because she's no longer a virgin? Anyway, guys who are concerned about your virginity so early need not be paid attention to. Since my first semester here I've had guys that I met ask me in the same breath "I like Lord of the Rings too, are you a virgin?" I'm like "version? of what" [oblivious... yes].It's not that hard to say no, at least not for me. It's better not to just throw your virginity away to some random guy who doesn't even know you like that, but someone you actually care about and love. Ya know?I like my v. card status. You'll learn to appreciate it lol

    It really is. I still have a hard time believing it. Cause it just seems so surreal.

    Quote:Where did you get your information? Mine is from living through those times, reading the (then) less biased articles in magazines and newspapers before there was ever an apparent liberal agenda to bias them...something you couldn't possibly have done because you're simply too young to have escaped the present-day bias.You're not ancient. I have family in their 90s that have stories that will flip your world upside down. You really need to stop with this "i'm older than you so I know better". It's getting a bit ridiculous and I'm having a hard time taking you seriously. And yes I did get my research from OLD works and direct quotes.  Quote:our demeanor since addling off to "higher education" has become increasingly angry and hostile...as if you've been made to feel the victim of thousands of years of opression (though you haven't lived nearly that long).This is absolutely hilarious. I'm angry and hostile? And all this time I keep being told that I need to start learning to be more aggressive and taking things seriously. I have been absent from this board for weeks now. If anyone sounds bitter it's you. I'm enjoying school, and life for as long as I'm blessed with it.  Quote: Don't you ever wonder why you feel the way you do? Have you ever stopped to consider the possible reasons why some folks might want to make you feel that way over time by continually feeding you a twisted image of the reality you live in? Most people, when I was your age, were at least aware enough to be asking themselves those kinds of questions. Has the ability/desire to do that died somewhere along the line?Sir... I recently lost 3 cousins, 1 uncle, and 3 aunts in Port-au-Prince with my two baby cousins and my mom's sister still missing. I've been through hell and back again since the end of December. And I've STILL managed to keep a smile on my face and peace in my mind and love on my heart as I support other Haitians who have lost. I'm a cheerful human being as I've been told countless times. Yes, I've been depressed, but I'm getting through. Don't know what you see. And I really don't know what world you live in. I've gone through my oppression and still am. Not nearly as bad as my mother and the generations before me, but the fact that you think my age has something to do with how I act and what I experience. Maybe you still have some growing up to do AS OLD as you are. No disrespect, Sir.

    Thank you. I didn't know it was a shocker that Walt Disney was a racist. It's not his fault, in his time many people were so it's not that big of a deal. It's just that many movies that he came out with played to the stereotypes that were put on Negroes, Indians, Orientals, Arabs etc in many of his movies. Don't get me wrong I love Disney movies, but it doesn't mean I agree with everything that was put in the movies.Same goes with Charles Darwin. The man was absolutely brilliant but for his time it was reasonable for him to be racist. Which he was. It's not something to go "OMG NO HE'S NOT!" It's like ooh okay well yeah just look at the times. Thomas Jefferson was racist too. Another big shocker?

    Your bullshit is getting madd old. Move on to something new. And this wasn't in class this was research I did on my own. But that doesn't count either.

    I love Disney movies but it still doesn't mean Walt wasn't racist and stuck in a stereotypical mindset. It's like when people get defensive when they hear that Charles Darwin was racist. Doesn't mean he wasn't intellectual but he is what he is. It's not that big of a deal.

    although Disney continues to make movies aimed at children, they have long since abandoned the family values they were once known for.
    Which ANIMATED disney movies are you referring to? I suggest you watch The Princess and the Frog. It was a nice blast of fresh air.

    Walt Disney was a racist... and obsessed with the stereotypical housewife. He was turning in his grave when they made Mulan and The Princess and the Frog.
