It looked like it'd take me a while to get back up to date with it, which I may do at some point. In the meantime though, I'm working on a video explaining where the human race stands in the quest to understand the origin of life so I'll make sure you get that :)
Well, it'll be another year before I actually take the trip (that's the plan). Most people my age go backpacking in Asia or South America or Africa. Couch-surfing is only one possibility I'm thinking of. I'm still not sure because of how scary it is (crashing in a stranger's home) and besides, my mom won't let me go because she's worried too. If I can convince her (and myself) that it's not that scary, then I might try it out :)
It's just something I want to start but haven't yet. I want to do it in the future maybe, as a hobby.
I'm not currently studying anything right now but I hope to go to university in the future. Maybe something in Biology or Medicine. I don't know. Before that I have to decide where I'm going for a trip. Have you heard of couch surfing? My cousin told me about it and it sounds really cool but also scary :(
It's supposed to be a shy fairy. In high school I majored in Computers and in 10th grade we had to make a project of programming our own web site. This picture is actually an icon from the website I made (the picture itself is actually stolen from deviant art :(, please don't judge me!). I used it so that whenever a person would post a message on the forum and use a predefined set of characters (like this: [:)]) the icon would show up instead. I really should change it...
BTW, "good looking" was something I thought of when I looked at your picture actually ;)
Hi! Yes, about that, that is actually a poorly-Photoshopped (or more accurately, GIMPed) picture of Ulysses S. Grant I did as part of a series for my History teacher. Luckily, the small image size masks the quality. I'm glad you like it.
On a completely unrelated note, I was intrigued by your very frank comments on the Abortion debate forum. I was wondering if you would mind writing a short "Essay on Life and its Values"-type piece expanding upon your beliefs/views, not necessarily on abortion, but on life and the value system you illustrated in your response.
Throughout this debate, on TV and Interent and columns, I have only ever seen three types of responses, all extremely simple, sound-bite friendly and left/right, black/white style. You have one of the most original beliefs or thoughts on the subject, and I would love to hear more about them. Not necessarily for the purpose of debate, just out of curiosity.
