Speaking of roommates...

World-readable

That reminds me. I'm curious to wonder which SDA college will get a real co-ed dorm first and when that will be. I kindof wish I had lived in one. I think it would have been fun and probably less barbaric than a guys only dorm.

Girls always seem to have such a civilizing influence! On some Sat. night trips my Academy took--like rollerskating--the segregated seating in all the transit vehicles so that copulation could not occur. Girls took the big bus and guys took all the vans or vice-versa. Once we rode over mixed and rode back segregated. Being a guy, I rode with the guys coming back and it was a marked change from the way over. It was much cruder, louder, and generally MUCH more barbaric!

When I complained about it later to my female friends, they said something like, "Well, you complain about barbarism, but we had to deal with the NOISE of endless squealing and giggling which reached epic proportions!"

Ok, well, the most obvious problem with [new years resolution
about getting a girlfriend] is that the intended outcome relies on
variables which are out of my control. It's a matter of chance,
luck, being in the right place at the wrong time, what have you.
Obviously, it also relies on the willful participation of
another human being. Since the only people we control are
ourselves, making resolutions -- promises to ourselves -- which
require the involvement of others, who may or may not want any
part of the game, is like sitting at home and cheering a
football team, and then saying "We won! We won!" when in fact
you had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. Or something
like that.
