So, you probably know, in Colorado, they passed an amendment to their constitution allowing marijuana to be used, bought, and sold by adults over 21, recreation-ally.
Another initiative here in my state of Washington passed, same story, by a healthy margin. (More people here voted for weed than for Obama)
Now, that's pretty fucking awesome.
So, on December 6, I think, Washington will be, for about a month, the only state to have marijuana legal for use, till Colorado joins us.
But all of this has sort of set off a legal clusterfuck.
I've spent what seems like an unhealthy amount of time on the Internet over the past few days, researching, for the most part, 2 things.
Positively, I've been looking very hard into German exchange programs, to spend my senior year, next year, in Germany or Austria in an immersion program. I'm already in the middle an application for a scholarship, and I've just started and need to discuss with my parents the application I'm starting for a host of others.
Now, this is something that's a little weird.
My general philosophy on sexuality is don't worry about it, if you like someone, you like someone, take it person by person and don't worry about labels.
And that's still my philosophy.
But something interesting that I've noticed, for quite a while, and has become a little more poignant just recently.
Well, the exchange student of the last week and a half left today.
First thing's first, I'm sure you're all wondering, yes, he was hot, gorgeous, all the Austrian exchange guys were gorgeous.
Another thing, they were all taller than me. Now, I know I'm like short, like 5'8", but they every one were inches higher.
One was 6'6".
What was it like?
Well, today, he left, and that ended up leaving me about 10X as depressed as I thought I'd be.
Shit, with this exchange I've been busier than a one-legged ass-kicker.
Ah, Big Dumb Sex.
Well, I waited for a while to tell you guys something, cause I wanted to be able to say what I'm going to say now: I'm fine.
I'm sorry, but this guy is really, really hot.
It was so clear to me,
that it was almost invisible,
I lie across the path waiting...
A spiderweb, trapped in your lashes,
I would trade you my empire for ashes.
So usually I don't talk about sexuality that much, but I figured I'd go for it, since this is, after all, a LGBT site.
I'm going to be hosting an Austrian student for about 2 weeks in a couple here. From the 18th to the 30th, this month, I'll have some Austrian guy at my disposal, and I don't know much about him, but I chose him cause he looked sorta cute, and his profile I got to choose from said he especially likes soccer and ultimate, and I just happen to be on a soccer team, and an ultimate team.
I hope we'll get along.
It's amazing, sometimes, how circumstances can just come together to screw humanity.
Diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, and other protozoans, worms, flukes, etc. have plagued humanity since the beginning of our history, since before our history. They do for all species, because being a parasite, something that lives at the expense of another, is an incredibly easy and evolutionarily successful way to live.
I was reading in the newspaper today about 2 opinion pieces, since gay marriage here in Washington was recently passed by the legislature, and then a referendum to overturn it, and one of the pieces was in support of the referendum, and the other against it.
See, I just don't understand this shit.
That one that was for the referendum was saying like how it affects everyone, because the definition of marriage would be redefined for everyone as not "husband and wife" but "Spouse 1 and Spouse 2".
I'll probably even write a journal when I'm not up to my asshole buried in homework.
A very sad, beautiful song.
Oh, and you guys have to listen to the new Dirty Projectors album!
