|"what kind of paradise am i looking for? i've got everything i want and still i want more"
I have little problem doing the boatloads of reading for all my classes, but i have no motivation to do any of the research or paperwriting. This is seriously problematic.
I feel off and empty somehow, but i don’t know what i want. This is of course dissatisfying and unhelpful. My horoscopes seem to recommend hugs. ( see?Collapse )
But i find this one the most helpful of any of them.Sunday, September 29, 2002
The Moon is in Cancer all day today. Cancer is Latin for “crab,” a creature that lives within its hard outer shell. Our homes are like the crab’s shell, affording us protection from the tidal changes that we deal with in the outer world. At home, we are supposed to be safe. When the Moon is in Cancer, we create shells around our emotions, especially if we feel vulnerable. Emotions can deepen now, but don’t necessarily make it up to the surface. Avoid brooding.

We watched But I'm A Cheerleader
, which was fun. I ended up not really helping out much, but everyone said that was okay. And we're meeting again on Wednesday, so maybe i'll be helpful then. I now have a really cool 1997 Smith College LBA t-shirt. Someone found a bunch of them in a box. I think we should rename the LBTA "True Directions." *wink* Some people were looking through a national dierctory of LBTA type organizations trying to come up with a cool new name. We're already using PRISM for Queer Women of Color. We could use Spectrum. HUGS (Helping Unite Gays and Straights) is really cute but of course not sufficiently inclusive.( as if we didn't already knowCollapse )
Oh, and Meredith
decided she hated her journal layout (i was a fan, but it's her journal of course) so no one should look at it until she says so. Current Mood: improved
