My aggressive journey to say a few words. (AKA) I'll be saying stuff that won't matter to many of you but it'll ALL mean something to me.

My English 111 professor assigned reading material for us to read over the weekend. It was an essay (I believe that's what it was) called "Shifting Baselines". In class we had a slight discussion on the issue but we also had to write a journal entry after reading it.
My journal entry goes like this...

When I hear the term "Shifting baselines" I think about the way we accept things like tank tops and flip flops in high schools today but even 12 years ago you would never get away with it. I al...

I'm sure you're all guilty of lying about how you're doin'. When someone asks, "Hey, ____ how ya doin'?" I bet that you will almost always answer by saying good, fine, swell, so on and so forth... It's no surprise any more when you ask someone how they're doin' becuase it's always the same answer.

I know that everyone wants to put on a good face for others, but shouldn't there be a line at which you shouldn't cross? If you are guilty of doing what I'm talking about then you have to come to a...

We all know that most people try and find friends that act like themselves. Well I think that that's only part of what we do. In my experiences with different social groups I think it's safe to say that my original statement is false. I will go into this soon, but what I want to say now (before anyone gets the wrong impression of me) is that I personally don't fit into any social group that I can think of.

One part of my philosophy towards friendship is that you don't go looking for someone ...

Alright, so here's my 'philosophy'. I believe that colored cereal sticks to teeth better than non-colored teeth. Honey nut cereals count as non-colored.

I was just thinking as I ate a bowl of Fruity Pebbles and a bowl of Frosted Flakes. It seems that the FP sticks in my teeth more than FF do. I don't know if it's the color of the cereal that gets stuck but for some strange reason Fruit Loops get stuck a lot too and Rice Krispies don't. Is it the rounded shape of the FL that makes them stick ...

So here I am. If you want to continue from AOTWU in the direction it was going I think it would be better if we came here. Threead had a different plan in mind for his article I think and maybe I just figured he'd like to get back to what he was trying to do in the first place. I know I started the problems but now I'm trying to not really stop them but at least move them to a "better" location.

So we know that the garden of eden was a paradise taken away from humans for the rest of eternity right? We also know that Atlantis is a legendary city that has sunk to the bottom of the ocean. Can we agree on that? Alright. Then we have the fountain of youth. Its said that who ever drinks of it will live forever. And now for how I see it...
You see the garden of eden holds the tree of knowledge of good and evil. I believe that the fountain of youth is in fact that tree of the knowledge of good...
