dear world:

you're pretty stupid. who the heck ever came up the idea that flats were the way to go? sure, they're cute and all the celebrities have them, but they are the most uncomfortable shoes that were ever invented by the stupidity of mankind. they are unfriendly to your arch, toes, sole and heels because:

1. there is NO arch support in a flat shoe.
2. your toes have to grip the front of the shoe with every step to make sure the rest of your foot doesn't fall out.
3. the bottom of your foot will be on fire after you walk around in these shoes because the thin, thin soles of the shoe do nothing to absorb shock or to protect your foot.
4. your heel will constantly bang against the back and receive blisters due to the inability of the flat shoe to remain snug on your foot.

compared to flats, even stilettos are a good investment. all i wanted was a nice, mid-heel loafer or flat pumps to walk around in, and all i can find is flats.

will someone please point me in the direction of some brilliant writing? i don't mean meaningless nonsensical phrases marauding as "free form poetry" or dry didactic essays. i need something truly illuminating.

cuz i am SO stuck.

Bittersweet dark chocolate, enfolded in leaves of gold
One flake drifts to my tongue, like snow, like rain, fallen, gone.
A bright flame, licking the sullen sky, a Clementine
Tucked in my palms, my brilliant secret of daylight
Two flashes of sunlight on a hoary winter’s morning
Dazzling and radiant, slip into my skin, fire.

so, global warming is really happening, is manmade and is going to be unstoppable for centuries.

this is according to a new study performed by scientists in France. of course, as we learned in frontiers of science last semester, all of that is pretty true. we basically just might end up wiping out our own race.

hmm. the bass in my left iPod earphone is screwy. it sort of buzzes a little when the music's louder. it's really irritating... i need new earphones. darn it.

on a very different note, thanks to everyone who left a message on my facebook, regardless of how you were reminded. ;D My roommate actually made me a cake!! she's the awesomest. yayyy. i actually feel different on this birthday, just because of all the legal implications that being 18 brings. I can smoke now!! and gamble in some places!! and participate in medical research and studies that call for women "18 or older," and I can vote and buy lottery tickets. and I can... do a ton of other stuff. weird, weird. but liberating. in three years i'll "officially" join the ranks of the "adult." cool.

now for homework... my classes really are killing me. I spend so many hours in class and I get a disproportionate amount of homework. let's see... I am in class for about 18 hours a week, I spend at least 7 hours a week on Mock Trial related stuff, approximately 3-5 hours per book per week (and I'm supposed to read about 3 books a week, which equals about 12-15 hours just on reading), plus maybe 7 hours of sleep per night, maybe like 4 hours on other homework, subtract about an hour a day for meals, which leaves maybe 70 hours a week left... darn it... if that's true, why don't i have ANY SPARE TIME?!?!

sooooo cmunce is finished, and i was soooo tired. we've been having eight hours of sessions every day, which is doubly exhausting because not only do i have to chair, i have to liaison with the crisis staff to plan new "crises" to hit the committee with. we've had everything from appearances by the US embassy, a fist fight in the Taiwan Legislative Yuan and prostitutes holding up bloody eyeballs (that was me; i did it for another committee). it was interesting to see what the kids wrote on their evaluations; some of them thought i was really nice and encouraging, but some thought i was too "uptight," as they said. i guess that's probably because i'm used to chairing GA type committees, and at some points debate disintegrated into the point where no one was taking it seriously (usually when my co-chair was chairing) and i had to step in to help them maintain focus. lol. well, all depends on your viewpoint. anyway, after that i came back and crashed in bed for five hours, and now i have to get up and translate three more pages.

anywho, mr. kay says hello to everyone and invites y'all to shoot him an email telling him how you are. his email is devjamkay4 at cs.com.

i'm at an MUN conference - CMUNCE!!! it's a crisis conference where all the committees are about 20-25 people and they're in emergency session and dealing with new crises that keep getting thrown at them by the conference crisis staff. i'm a vice chair, supposedly in charge of being the liaison between our crisis director and our committee, but my chair decided he likes that position better so now i'm actually chairing. it's so tiring. but on the bright side, mr. kay is here in new york! and franklin, mr. kay and i will be having lunch together tomorrow =) fun fun.
