I believe that my Philosophy of Race/Class/Gender class should be a requirement for all undergraduates. I think it gives students a wonderful knowledge of oppression and privilege. A big section that I am most interested in is heterosexism. I love learning about WHY people are homophobic and finding a solution to it.
My mind has been constantly changing with this class. I am learning so much that I feel is so very vitally important for everyone else to experience and know as well. If we educate people, maybe we wouldn't have all this ignorance and name calling.
On another note, I received an "A" on my Philosophy of Arts test! I was so excited to see that "A" too! My T.A. is super cool. I got him to check my paper before I turned it in, fixed my errors, and received my "A." And it feels great.
I also would love to see the movie "Bright Star" in the near future. Just as a heads up! A story full of John Keats and his lover Fanny? Yeah, you know you can count me in any Romanticism-era film.

Currently: - Researching a topic for my Philosophy of Race/Class/Gender. Thinking about doing a topic on the recent suicides of gays.
- Listening to The Smiths
Amelie is a wonderful movie! I definitely recommend it to everyone.

I have noticed lately that a lot of people that dress well are frowned upon by others. Why? I think these people look stunning. And for the people that are frowning upon the people, please stop. Let people have the freedom to dress anyway they want. Sorry, if I find exercise shorts and a tank top boring.
Besides that, I think I aced my Philosophy of Arts test which is extremely exciting!

I feel as if some songs now-a-days do not really have a beginning, climax, and an ending. They're more like one big climax at the beginning to get your attention and then bore you throughout because it is the same thing over and over repeated.
Others, such as by The xx or Florence + The Machine kind of have a beginning to their songs that build up so strong to a climax that gets you going and struck to their will. Then at the very end it leaves you speechless and in a zone where you feel invincible. I strongly recommend these bands by the way!
