creature of habit.

If you add up the total time I've spent at this one table in the Student Center today, it would come out to about six and a half hours. I don't know how productive you can say I've been. My goal this morning was to read an article for E105 and then go to Spanish. Instead, I worked on an article for the New U and skipped Spanish to chat it up with some friends. Then after work and E105, I came back to this table with the intention of studying for my LJ103 midterm. Instead, more hanging out. I just finished (quite well, I might add) my midterm and now I'm back at this table, waiting for discussion at 7. Eight weeks into the quarter and I still think leaving a 40-minute gap between lecture and discussion is ridiculous.

I've been contemplating the obvious problems associated with our generation's overwhelming apathy, and I wonder what motion can be made that will change that. It will have to be something large because I feel like we've all degenerated into a solipsistic state where we are no longer a "community." It's everyone for themselves. I wonder what the benefit of that really is.

Discussion soon, followed by the debate. I almost want to skip it in favor of going home and diving into some mac and cheese. At least in a bowl of mac and cheese, there is no apathy or no right or left side.
