I wish students would drop the Calc class. Please? I’m 5th on the waiting-list and the last day to drop classes is next Friday. Please, drop it so that I can double major or minor in Anthropology. Please… I want to be able to add it before the deadline on Friday of third week.

The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy.

I’m at the library which is open 24 hours this week for finals. I’ll probably leave around 6AM and sleep ‘til 2PM. My final is at 4PM. Last night’s final went great but I forgot the definition of professional vision, but I knew it began with “socially organized ways…” Too bad I doubted myself. Oh, wells. After today I’ll have two finals left and they’re both on Thursday. Can I just see my cats again?
*My mom told me that Rio got bigger and fatter. I’ll squeeze her when I go back on Friday…
Also, I want to go to San Francisco for spring break. Hm… where to go?
