If this being in international relations thing doesn’t work out, I’d like to be able to work as someone who edits papers and novels or whatever. I was actually going to study that in SFU, hey? I wonder why I changed my mind.
Goal for the next week:
Win at fucking Diplomacy. Ace my Chinese exams.
Things that scare me: I just noticed that one of the clips down was not in Vietnam but was a movie about the Americans in the Philippines during Japanese occupation. I…uh don’t know. I just watched a documentary on the Vietnam war by the way.
Oh that’s just unfair documentary, now you show me a kid crying over his dead father. THEN you show me this asshole who says “the orient does not view life the same way the western world does.” Really?
Oh yeah. Watching a documentary with American soldiers fucking Vietnamese women.
mariaarroyo answered your question: Would you actually, seriously, help your friend… what the fuck. go away. HAHAHA. I’d probably cry HAHA, see I probably will just stand at the door way and go “What?” Now that I realize this, the chances of me being asked for help for this is minimal because I can’t drive. And I ain’t going in a car with someone who just killed...
I want to finish this now I don’t want to do this when I get home too geeez >_<.
Last night I asked if you would help your friend bury someone. Chances are, I’ll probably numbly agree to it, but halfway through I’ll drive to a police station. Shit, what if my friend kills me too right? Yeah. IDEK.
At the moment, lawyers at Facebook and Google and Microsoft have more power over...– On today’s Fresh Air, legal scholar Jeffrey Rosen talks about technologies that are challenging our notions of things like personal vs. private space, freedom of speech and our own individual autonomy.

There’s a snowstorm outside ._.
AH CAN'T CONCLUDE.
WILL SLEEP CONCLUDE IN THE MORNING. I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M SLEEPING AT 3 AM. THIS IS WONDERFUL.
COMPARE, CONTRAST AND CONCLUDE.
2 more pages and then I can sleep. Come on let’s do this. I want to at least get 4 hours of sleep tonight.
I haven’t slept properly in the last two weeks. Let this end.
I NO LONGER CARE TIME TO RAMBLE ON AND ON AND ON. 2 pages for the comparison I guess.
I’m hungry. Nope, get on with figuring out how this man describes the Sino-Soviet split.
Ugh I enjoy this book, but since it’s not laid out as chronologically as the other one, I find it harder to write about. Boo.
What comes easy won’t last and what lasts won’t come easy? As much as I’d like to argue against that, I’ll just keep repeating that in my head to help myself through tonight.
Would you actually, seriously, help your friend bury someone they murdered? (Like, seriously, if they showed up at your doorstep all frenzied with bloodied clothes and shit, would you help them?) What say you?
I guess the reason I can justify what my parents are paying for my phone is because my phone plan is outrageous. Seriously, if you guys are wanting to be on Bell for some strange, fucked up reason, try to pick up a small business plan. Their business solutions are WONDERFUL.

And seriously man, that’s just like torture hahaha. There’s just so much Poli Sci and History I can take. I’m missing English badly right now. Let me analyze some stories instead of goddamn...
Oh god now I have to listen to that last Christmas song because it’s stuck in my head why internet why.
joshishollywood: Last Christmas, I gave you my heart Within minutes, I was dead This is not something that humans can survive doing and honestly I don’t recommend it
I may just hang out at school tomorrow, bring a novel to read and chill. I have to be there from 5-8 anyway because I am watching a special on the Vietnam War (IKR, don’t I ever get sick of this?). The prof doing the talk has a class I’ve been wanting to take but I can’t because I don’t have the prerequisites ): I’m excited~ I’m also excited to get rid of this...
chaoticambiguity replied to your post: chaoticambiguity replied to your post: Yeah, I… Postmodernism shouldn’t be considered a paradigm, it’s more like a way of life. THERE IS NO MEANING. And I dunno, I take a bit from each. Professors tell me doing it like that makes things muddled, but there are thing I disagree with in all paradigms IDK man, international relations theories just got so...
So I get to be Turkey for my diplomacy simulation.
Which btw, involves Diplomacy, the board game. It’s bizarre and exciting at the same time and it’s comforting to know that the people in my class are all as excited as I am to nerd out about it. I just need to know how to win. My Wednesday is probably going to be composed of me watching Diplomacy the board game videos and shit.
chaoticambiguity replied to your post: Yeah, I definitely subscribe to realism. I really hate paradigms. They’re so useless when you think about it. No decision is ever made because “Oh this looks like a neo-liberal perspective”. That being said, I’m a sucker for a good theory Haha yes but the way decisions are made are because of the theories people subscribe to and how they see the world etc...
Yeah, I definitely subscribe to realism.
Talked about international waters and kept talking about sovereignty and stuff. YEAHHHH.
Okay I’m watching that lipsyncing video of the VS Angels and my god why are they so pretty that’s unfair.
I need to stop writing letters to inanimate objects and intangible ideas and concepts. Especially ones that imply that I’m in any sort of relationship with them because it gets kind of weird.
UGH I WANT TO CRY. I LOVE YOU INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, BUT I AM SERIOUSLY ALL PAPER-ED OUT. WE NEED A BREAK. YOU NEED TO JUST BE WHO YOU ARE WHILE I GO FIND MYSELF IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA GUZZLING ON BUTTERBEER. Don’t worry, I’ll always realize that I love you and come back to you. We just really need to be apart right now.
Here we go again. That feeling of despair that I’m never going to get this done. I’m still at page 8 because I deleted some stuff. I should be reaching 9 soon. 10 if I manage to find Sino-Soviet relationship shit in this book ugh.
