:: Saturday, October 09, 2004 ::

Sigh. It's been too long since I last updated. Classes have been going OK, and I have been recruiting and scheduling people for the psychology study I'm running. Yesterday, I my friends had a wonderful tea party, and we drank tea and snacked on goodies. I then went over to Lowell House to watch the second presidential debate. Why is George W. Bush so angry? It seemed as if he was yelling at the people in the audience; he just seemed really upset and foul-tempered. At one point, he even cut off the moderator Charles Gibson... a big no-no in debate.

Today, I got up early, dressed up in business clothes, and participated in Harvard Model Senate, a government simulation sponsored by Harvard Model Congress. It was fun to debate the great issues (domestic and international) facing our nation. We sat in committees and discussed the pros and cons of various pieces of legislation, from the legalization of marijuana to air strikes on North Korea. I had to play the roles of a conservative senator and the Director of Homeland Security Tom Ridge; that was a real trip, but it was interesting to see these issues from the "other side."

Tonight, I'm going to a big birthday party for my friend, whose birthday was actually earlier this week. However, parties are so much more fun when they are on a Saturday night, so I look to have a good time tonight!

Quote of the Day: "Yeah, this is the story of how I overcame diversity... I mean, adversity."
