for God and party

I've been having a cheap philosophical thought lately. Some people complain about everything that's wrong in the world, and say that God cannot be both omnipotent and loving if he allows such pain and suffering to exist. Collapse )

The party last night was a lot of fun, although I eventually left because it became too loud for me to function there. I had fun with the school-girl getup (hmm, must remove the electric blue nail polish tomorrow), and learned that the star-shaped hairclips that I loved so much late in high school are now dorky enough that people laugh out loud when they see them X-) Three different people asked me about my boyfriend/ex-boyfriend, which was interesting because no one seemed to care to hear too much about him before.

I'm starting to think that I've got some real friends out here, not just people who are letting me hang out with them on a trial basis :D It's so weird not being an automatic outsider any more, and not having to really search to find my niche of friends. I meet people, and we get along. Am I blending with the normal people, or is it that no one pursuing a Ph.D. is normal?

Did get stuff done today, must get much more done tomorrow... I want to try to find some rocks in a natural environment so I can better understand the ones I encounter in the city, but it looks like tomorrow will be rainy. Maybe I can squeeze it in somehow before I go home. Must do Collapse )

And just so you know, because I work in a high-tech bioinformatics lab, I get an automatic pencil sharpener (click to zoom in and read it for yourself):
