I just downloaded the app for LJ on my phone, so maybe I will pay better attention to my journal. I'm very excited about a writing project I'm working on and can't wait to share more about that in the coming months. I also recently obtained a Tumblr account. I'm always looking forward to meeting new people there but I feel that I should warn people that I've been obsessing lately on Game of Thrones and Supernatural. There will probably be more of that here as well.

So woooow... it's been a while since I posted anything here. Today is the second to last day that I will be house sitting for my friends. I'm pretty much hanging out, watching Mystery Science Theater 3000. I wish I could watch more Fringe, but I can't find the other disks :(

Writer's Block: Nature v. nurture

In your opinion, how much of our personality is genetic, and how much is shaped by environmental factors?


I don't think we will ever have a clear answer to this one. There are LOTS of examples of how environment can affect the way someone grows up. Children certainly need stability and love to grow and develop into productive members of society. But there are examples where people have been exposed to all sorts of trauma and survived it just fine. I know from my own experience, I was missing a lot when I was kid and lived a some what chaotic experience. Yet I grew up and went to college and have done pretty well with my life.

On the other side of things, there are cases when kids have been given everything they could ever want and have still gone bad. So I can't say it's always the environment... sometimes it's like it was fate.

I tend to believe it's a combination of the two. Such as the argument that violent TV and video games makes people violent. (Which would go under the environment argument.) I grew on violent video games and TV and I'm not out shooting people. Yes, I can't say everything ends with me... but MILLIONS of people have this similar experiences and they too are fine.

I tend to believe that those that have other factors in their lives, are the ones that tend to take the violence too far. People with childhood traumas, or that are just "rotten".

That's my opinion on the topic. I'm tired of people blaming TV, video games, and music for the way society is today. There is more involved and until we take responsibility for that, it will never change.

***, that would be "write" not "right". People need to quite butchering the English language and start looking more educated. It's really getting ridiculous.

For Shits and Giggles

My amazingly talented friend gave me a copy of a book about HIM. It's called HIM His Infernal Majesty by Reinhardy Haydn and was copy righted 3 years ago. I've only managed to read a few pages of it, but I adore the slew of Ville quotes through out it's 123 pages.

Here is what I call, my daily Valo musing:

"I don't eat meat on tour, because it is too heavy. I wouldn't be able to move my hips on stage if I'd eat those heavy foods." ~Ville Valo

And that, would truly be sad. Where would we be with no hip swivels from Willa?

GRRRRR

I hate the fucking internet right now! I fucking hate all technology!! Is it so much to want to browse the internet without fucking internet exporer trying to shove pop ups in my face?! I don't know what I did to allow those bastards access but they need to go the fuck away! I don't even use internet explorer!!!

And then fucking fire fox has to close on me repeatedly, till it finally decides to LOSS all of my windows!!

I am so beyond frustrated right now and had to walk away before I threw my computer out of the window.

So, I decided to try a new theme on here and I'm totally glad I did! I love it! Though I still wish I had one of those badass custom ones. ~Sigh~ I would love to open LJ and see Spock's pretty face staring back at me. lol I might even write something for the person who could make that possible. ;)

***Authors Note***
I'm talking about my TV boyfriend in Zach here... not Lemoy, though he rocks too.

Which reminds me! I never posted my Spock/Uhura fic!

Sooo....

My first placement is offically over, and while I am both sad to leave and anxious to move on to my next placement, I am well aware of how I have changed in the last few months. One thing is for sure, I have neglected my internet buddies! I've missed everyone! Please know the pain and suffering has been worth it. Here are some quotes from my 5th grade students, taken from their 'thank you' cards....

"I am very sad you are going away. I've well, not just me the whole class learned so much from you and your amazing fun teaching skills."

"Your a great student teacher and you'r going to be a great teacher. Thank you for playing games with us."

"Thank you for being our student teacher you were literally one of the best it was a great time learning, math, social studies, and science with you. I had a great time it was so FUN. Have a great life."

"Thank you for being generous with your time and teaching and playing games and "math" lessons. We learned so much. I will miss Matthews."

"Good Bye Haveing you Here was GREAT."

"Thanks for helping me with my work and know I'm getting alot better grades I couldn't ask for a better student teacher."

"We are so upset that your leaving us. Your gonna make a great teacher someday. Go for your DREAMS!"

"You did a great job in our class! I hope you do good later in your career."

"A riddle for u. Who is the one that is awsome, amazing and, thoughtful full of love and caring... (on the inside) its you."

And one of my final ones simply said: "Don't go" with a big frowning face. :(

***Errors intentionally kept to preserve the full integrity of the students writing***

So for the next few days I can relax... save for getting my unit plan finished... grrr...

p.s. I feel like a hypocrit grading my students grammar and spelling here, when I messed up students' and writing on facebook. xD I rock!
