Preparing Last-Minute for the Midwest Model UN
Well, here I am, doing most of my research for the Midwest Model United Nations conference the day before the conference starts. What is wrong with me??!? Is there any hope of stuffing my brain with enough information today, to not be completely lost at the conference tomorrow? Finding information on my topics-- extreme hunger, extreme poverty, & access to medication for HIV / AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria-- isn't too hard. What is difficult, is finding out how actual German diplomats would approach the topics in the real United Nations. How did I let this go until today? Of course, I wouldn't be me if I was fully prepared and ready to go already today, but this time I've gone too far.

Not Geeky Enough
I'm a geek; it's true. I'm not really a computer geek, though. I wish I was, though. There's nothing really wrong with the templates, and the free hosting is handy, but it would be so much cooler if I could design it and host it myself.

Unfortunatly, I'm still working on the paper mentioned in the last post. My subject is a woman named Victoria Woodhull. She ran for President of the United States of America in 1872-- 48 years before the 19th Amendment was passed, giving women the right to vote. Needless to say, she didn't do very well in the election, but she opened a door that will never be shut; she set a goal for generations of women to come.

A New Low, Or A New High?
11:37 p.m. / 23:37
I am a life-long procrastinator. Tonight I set up this blog, on a whim, while I should have been writing a paper for one of my classes. I may have hit a new low, by devoting time to setting up a blog I may decide I don't want to keep up, when I have a paper to write. Or, I may have hit a new high by procrastinating with an activity that will turn out worthy of my time-- just maybe not my time tonight. *shrug*
