This is an extremely difficult subject. I can understand where everybody is coming from, even though many aren't on the same page. I suppose I don't really see much discrimination at my school because of somebody's disability. Of course, this is a college, so there wouldn't be anybody with a severe ...

I agree about the Bulimia jokes, but I shrug them off a bit. The show kills me! I need to share it with my boyfriend next time I go home, he'll get a kick.

I did the one that gives you percentages. I'm mostly Sailor Moon (33%), and tied for Chibi-Moon, Mercury and Venus (17%). I'm least like Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus (all 0%)

I watch a lot of movies. Heh, if I posted every time I saw a new movie I liked, it'd go on forever. Right now I'm trying to watch every movie on IMDBs top 250 list. I suppose the most memorable movies I've seen as of late would be Osama. It's a film about a little girl and her mother in Afghanstan. ...

Heh, I always tell Kiel that I can't wait until I have kids so that Santa will be "real" again, lol. Believing in Santa was so much fun, and while I was a little upset when I found out he wasn't real, it didn't destroy my life or anything. I did keep on the act for a while after, just because I love...

I took one last semester as part of a school assignment. Our professor actually had one of the school career counselors come in and give us this test. It kinda ticked me off because it was a senior level course. The test is often used in career counseling to tell you what career would fit your perso...

My boyfriend just told me about it today. He was really sad.

My boyfriend is from Wisconsin, Lake Geneva in particular, which I think Gary Gygax was too, so he was particularly saddened about it.

Sailor Cosmos?

So, what is your honest opinion on who Sailor Cosmos is or could be? (I looked, and searched, and couldn't find a thread addressing this, which kind of surprised me). This is just speculation, as the only person who really knows is Naoko herself. I can't quote what Sailor Ceres says in the manga, bu...

I don't think the harm in hiding veggies in sweets is the lying. I mean, if I ate a brownie and found out there was something else in it, I wouldn't feel cheated.

It get confusing, because you can't tell it's them talking and not their character. Plus, the little girls who refuse to RP unless their charac...

Senshi_of_vision; I totally agree. Why aren't colleges and universities safer? They should have plenty of money they can put toward security. Not only that, but many public universities receive state funding. We haven't had a problem with violence on that level at my school (obviously), but smaller ...

I miss online RPing. I used to do it in the AOL chats, but since we got rid of AOL, I haven't been able to find a way. I did play a couple SM characters, but it was in a "modern" era, so it wasn't a big deal, and I felt that I played them really well. It makes me sad faced because I live far away fr...

I can't stand double standards, and completely agree with what a lot of you are saying. One I've noticed, I guess this is more directed towards men...

It does make me sick. I think it truly is selfishness that causes it. I won't say that it's necessarily mental illness, but something has to be "off" in the head of the parent doing such a terrible thing. I don't have children yet, but I already feel an overpowering love for my future children. I kn...

-One thing that really annoys me about school is that a lot of the profs. (especially the ones teaching the gen. ed. classes) expect you to be at school everyday, and you lose points if you miss a class. If you're sick, you need to bring a doctors note to not lose the points. If I have the flu, I kn...
