What other foreign languages do you know? Which one(s) do you want to learn?

I studied Latin all throughout high school, and I took French in middle school, but neither of those got me anywhere. I'm currently taking Chinese, and it's nice taking a language that I actually have an interest in learning.  

Chinese is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, but I'm hoping that in this upcoming school year I'll be more prepared, and it'll come easier to me. Even if it doesn't, this year I'll be smart enough to get a tutor before it's too late. 

If I could pick, lets say, five languages to be fluent in, they would be:
- Chinese (obviously)
- Hindi
- German
- French
- Russian

I suppose that Spanish really should be in there...

Are there any political issues, such as abortion or capital punishment, that are so fundamental to your core values that you could not respect and/or trust someone who held a contrary view?

having relatively moderate political views myself (generally fiscally conservative, socially liberal), i don't have this issue. my family is filled with drastically different opinions, so i'm used to the controversey.  a few christmas' ago, my grandma (a hard core democrat) threw my aunt (a hard core republican) out of the house  because they got into a political arguement. luckily my grandpa persuaded her to let my aunt back in, but thats not the point.  the point is that i have grown up around so many different views and different mindsets that i have had the proper exposure to develop my own political beliefs. so, i'm pretty much ready for whatever a potential friend/boyfriend.  i will say though, that in my future marriage, i would prefer that my husband is pro-choice and pro-gay marriage.  these are two things that i would prefer not to have to argue about with my husband.  hopefully, he'll come from a pretty diverse minded family as well, so we'll be equals on the political front.  and, even though this is wishful thinking, it would be awesome if he was pro capital punishment.  but in this day and age, pretty much no one is for it (unless youre in texas or something), so i won't get my hopes up.

How do you feel about human cloning? Do you think the long-term societal impact will be positive or negative? Why?

i am definitely against human cloning. it just seems like an odd thing to do. like, honestly, i don't want another me running around somewhere, thats just sketchy. and i definitely don't like the idea that is portrayed in "the island," where human clones are used as insurance policies.  even though they are clones, they would have human thoughts and personalities, and to kill the said clones as an act of self preservation is not something i see as admirable.  therefore, i think that the long-term effect will be negative, because if people do resort to using clones as insurance policies, than the whole cloning system could really just be seen as a massacre of fellow human beings.  you also have to take into account the fact that if theres doubles of people running around, there could be a lot of chaos.

What is the absolute worst song ever written? For what amount of money would you consider listening to it over and over again for 24 hours?

i don't know if its the worst song every written, but i DETEST the song "girls just wanna have fun" by cindy lauper. i HATE it. and it also angers me that pretty much everyone loves that song. i really don't understand why. and they insist at playing it at EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL function, and when it comes on everybody screams. i say to myself "fuck" and then excuse myself to get a drink. ugh. hate that shit.
you would have to pay me a reallyreallyreally good amount of money

so i have not posted on here in a long, long time. well, i did that writer's block like last week or something, but does that count? i think not.
but, general update on my always exciting existance:

1. i have finally, and i repeat, finally, finished applying to college. final list: macalester (top), dickinson, juniata, hobart and william smith, american, richmond, goucher, vermont, new hampshire, and maine. i've gotten into five of them so far. but yeah, i can't wait for this shit to be over. they tell you that the worst part about applying to college is the actual application process, but no. that is LIES. LIES. the worst part is hands down the waiting.

2. brothers and sisters has consumed my life. i am ADDICTED to that show. it is so phenomanal, i can't even get over it. i literally sit here all day and think about that show. if you haven't seen it, you MUST, because it really is amazing. i even developed one of my little storylines to go along with it, so i spend my days plotting the events of my alter-ego's life with the walker family. its a very, very, very satisfying and entertaining pasttime. and, as a side note to the brothers and sisters addiction, i have decided that balthazar getty is very attractive.

so yeah. that pretty much is about it. i bet youre all just oozing jealously over reading about my uber exciting life. you know you are.

oh, one more exciting thing:

3. i finished the book the pact by jodi picoult yesterday. it was AWESOME. best book i've read since deathly hallows (bellatrix lestrange, rip), and thats saying something. it was sosososososo good. read it. you'll love it.

i am not a fan of action movies. not like, action adventure movies, just pure action movies. shit like die hard, mission impossible, all of those shitty spy movies just suck. or the dark knight. that movie is TERRIBLE. 
i like dramas. romantic comedies. action adventure - sometimes.  but yeah, no action for me thank you.
as for books i don't particularly like fantasy, with the exception of harry potter. but harry potter can be considered as its own literary genre, so it doesnt even matter. like, i cannot read books where the main characters name is like, gyulwfen. or some shit like that. it just does not work for me. at all.

What band are you dying to see live in concert that you've never seen before? Would you travel to a different city or state just to see them?
and i'm reallyreallyreally pissed off, because, well, i live in connecticut, and they JUST had FOUR shows within two and a half hours of me, and my mother wouldnt by me tickets. fuck my life.  i would KILL to go see u2. well, you know, not really kill but you get what i'm saying. i think it would be the most amazing concert ever, and i would probably die.

Have you ever stopped being friends with someone over differences in political views? Are there any issues that are so important to you that you cannot be friends with someone who holds a contrary opinion?
I've never actually stopped being friends with someone due to political views, but there are a few things that I DO NOT like to talk about with my friends.  Since I go to a Catholic school but aren't Catholic, a lot of my views about things are totally different than theirs.  For instance, I refuse to get into the abortion discussion, because not only do I piss them off that I'm pro choice, but I get pissed off that they're pro life.  So it really doesn't work out.  I also hatehatehate talking to my friends about gay marriage. I'm not gay, but its still a really big thing for me that it should be allowed.  I get so irritated when I talk to these people who are so homophobic, and the thought that someone would even be against gay marriage, or at even civil unions really angers me.  But yeah, overall, I don't pick my friends due to political views, although if someone is a Hillary fan than that usually works out.

so facebook is getting a tad ridiculous. not ridiculous, like, im going to delete my account or anything, but ridiculous in other ways, such as:
1. the increasingly alarming amount of over 40 members.  i for instance, am not only friends with my GRANDMA on facebook, but with four of my aunts, and three of my uncles, along with numerous other family friends, etc.   i really do not understand why they're on facebook. i sure as hell hope that when im their age, ill have better things to do than go on facebook and play farmtown.
2. i. fucking. hate. farm. fucking. town. or ville. whatever the fuck it is now. i joined it a while ago, and i haven't gotten around to deleting it yet, but every single day i get at least, at least, ten requests from my aunt and uncle who are total farmtown fanatics. SORRY, I DON'T WANT YOUR FUCKING MANGO TREE, AND I DONT WANT TO HELP ON YOUR FUCKING FARM FOR SOME FUCKING FAKE MONEY. i apologize, but i feel very strongly against farmtown. that and mafia wars. if i get sent another energy pack by someone, ill jump off the astronomy tower.
but yes, these aspects of facebook are beginning to annoy me.
whats also annoying is the fact that i have to write an essay like, right now, about obamas education speech. we got this assignment weeks ago, and im just getting to it. fml. way to go me.
i think ill go on lastfm. lets see what they have for me today.
eff you lastfm. i went on there, and the toaster strudel ad shut down my computer. def not going on there again today.
anywho, i'll go write that paper now. fun shit.

If your friend or partner left his or her email open, would you look? How about a journal? Have you ever peeked at something private?
i DEFINITELY would look. sorry, but i'm a huge snoop, and i like to know everything about everyone. my curiousity would just be overwhelming.
and yes, i have looked at something private. curiousity overwhelms me there too.
