I Dream Of A Better Future

    It's Not Going to Magically Happen

    It's up to all of us to make it happen. I just wish I knew how. I can't fix the world alone, and seeing as how we can't even get everyone to vote, I'm not sure how I can get them to really help change this world for the better. Any ideas anyone?

    I hate the "what does this mean" questions.

    "I had a dream, what does it mean?" "My boyfriend said blah blah blah, what does it mean?" Totally lame dude. But I had my own "what does it mean" moment. I know if I posted in Q&A the answers would be completely unsatisfying. I also know that it doesn't matter what it...

    When I think of the future of our society,

    I think about equality. But how we are obtaining it scares me a bit. We are becoming even more selfish than we used to be. We care more about our careers, our dreams, ours own pleasures than we think about others. And this is both good and bad, for it is in the nature of humans...

    Lately I've been thinking about finding a job

    after college. It's my third year and it's getting real close. I am an environmental science major but I want to focus on marine animals and how the environments effects them. I just don't where to look. I'll keep trying though. Internships would be nice but idk who to ask.

    I don't actually own it, but no one goes there this time of year. There's a small cove that's hardly noticeable from a distance on the west side of the island. The entrance is narrow and shallow and there can be a strong cross current. Once through the entrance it widens to the...
