1. Freedom of speech for teachers: There was this really good article about how teacher's basically have to watch everything they say, and especially what they show on the internet. Case in point: A teacher (over 21) posted a facebook picture of herself in a bar on her trip to Germany, BEHIND PRIVACY SETTINGS - but ended up losing her job for being a 'negative influence' or something like that. It's in court now, but it's still something to think about.

2. Some people are really freaking ungrateful. You offer them hours of work on your part and they go "there are lots of typos in this". FINE then. DO IT YOURSELF. /rant.

3. Happy endings and victories: I like strong characters who have already gone through their growth period and are now kick-ass. This is probably why Return of the Jedi is my favorite Star Wars movie. I like that moment when everything goes RIGHT.

...this sometimes makes it difficult to write fic.

4. It is (almost?) impossible to feel like a real adult when you're living in your parent's house.

5. The "road less traveled" clique. We need a lot of people traveling the regular roads or else the world would fall apart, guys. Sometimes doing something that isn't extraordinary is important. It's the little things that keep life going.

6. I always have things to say but if I don't write them down when I think of them I forget them. This post is a good case in point.

7. Sugar is evil in some ways. I'm fine if I don't eat it for a while - no cravings at all - but once I start it's really hard to stop. :/
