Presidential front-runner Barack Obama has made history again. Go figure.
Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.If we can boondoggle ourselves out of this depressions, that word is going to be enshrined in the hearts of the American people for years to come.
So, ah, the new MacBooks came out. There was fanfares in the streets; the pope sanctioned the day as a holiday. Figures, right when I get mine and am content with it, they come out with the Next Generation.

My bucket list has been growing since I got down to Athens:
"I know what you're thinking ... a twelve-by-twelve area isn't that much to work with, but what a lot of students do something called 'lofting;' that's where they make their bed a bunk-bed and put stuff under it. It's like putting your bed on stilts..."
I finally got my RSS feeds to start working again this morning and my music source had stories about the launch of Oasis's latest, Dig Out Your Soul. Being loyal to the band, I felt ashamed I missed the first day of the release, I kept to my Limewire devotions and didn't pay for it nonetheless.

It was announced early today that Martti Ahtisaari of Finland was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. Ahtisaari's role as mediator was pivotal in several international disputes, Yugoslavia and Ireland to name a few.

If the bluesy guitarist-turned-ladykiller John Mayer feels pressed to find a mark he's made on the world aside from his hit lament "Gravity," he need not look further than a simple Google search.

There are interesting phenomena among college freshmen. The first is how easy they are to spot the first week: traveling in herds, visible lanyards, copious college apparel. The second is how they disappear in the second week. Suddenly the most straight-laced of freshmen emerge with body piercing and some start tattoo tableaus on their backs.
I'm trying to think of a euphemism. I had a lofty opinion of myself in high school Spanish class, especially the last year. So much that I wasn't surprised in the least to learn I tested into Spanish 341. I was kind of cocky about it, really. I still am.
Anyway, Obama's an idiot.
Headaches were abound yesterday at my Religion, Gender, and Sexuality class. The class is structured around about an hour of review of the reading or expounding beyond the reading followed by a forty-five minute group discussion session.
