what was i thinking...

i don't know if i'm going to be able to hack it here with brad and stephen. granted, i'm not being driven insane like i thought might happen, but the living conditions here would be a little weird. it's funny that they hang out with a lot of freshman girls. this is funny because the girls they hang out with seem less mature than the high school kids i spent all summer with. and then i remember that, as much as i love brad and stephen, they are two pop-punk emo sellouts to the corporate machine, so their lives are based on feeling sorry for themselves because things aren't perfect. so of course they hang out with younger girls who are also immature...3...2...1...and there ends my self-righteous judging part of the blog. i bougt the message remix yesterday and the stanley hauerwas reader. i started reading job in the message like jacob's been doing, and i want to read a lot of the essays from the man i want to study under at duke. well, i miss the people in roseburg and want to go back, but realized last night that "i just can't do that, dignan." as anthony says when dignan wants him to cut his hair, another thing i just can't do but might have to.

Yeah, the hair: it's unfortunate but it might not go over well with potential employers. This you already know, and you also know that this shouldn't be the case. What can you do? I mean, what if it's the difference between getting a job and being unemployed?

I love it. I can just hear it, "i just can't do that, dignan."

You know, maybe you could sue them for discrimination. "Your honor, they were being hairist!" I'd join in with you against my choir director. He kicked me out on the first day. I think I was just too masculine- they felt threatened. Man, sometimes this world just beats you down. [In other words, there was a cross of communication or paper work and I was accidently put in the all-girl's choir. They wouldn't let me stay. But don't worry- they all laughed at me and word was all over school.]

In Berkeley...your hair could never be long enough, and your dreads would never be ...whatever enough.

Just for reference, Patrick, why did you choose Berkley?

The hair is cool...but hot at the same time.
