As most people are getting excited for the weekend right now, I'm not. I'm looking forward to October! I'm seeing Hanson in concert on the 2nd... we're planning on going camping on the 5th... we're going to have a friend of ours stay in our dorm room the next weekend... the weekend after that-oh wait-I'm not allowed to say, it's a surprise!.... then I'm going to see Matt Nathanson in concert and then maybe see Motion City Soundtrack in concert a few days later (that's questionable... i've already begun to cut spending) and then there's a wedding to attend!

I'm very excited for October.

So pledging has begun across campus. I decided not to pledge just because I don't like to be in large groups like that. Even classes that size make me nervous. I like my small group of friends. I don't need anything else.

But with pledging comes the debate on social clubs. Greek life in general has never really bothered me. I don't care whether people want to join a sorority or fraternity but it's when the pledge process comes to the point of humiliation that bothers me. I hear a lot of criticism from people against social clubs that it's stupid to pay for your friends and have to prove loyalty to the club. But that doesn't even bother me as long as it's what you want to do. It's when I'm watching guys I know are good people be yelled at and forced to stand in the Texas heat with watermelons on their shoulders just to join a club-that's when it bothers me...

Okay, I take it back. I can drive. In the dark. That's right, the only time I feel truly comfortable driving is while it's completely dark.

I will never learn how to completely drive. I know the basics. I know all the rules. But I'm not going any farther than that. I can't. I absolutely hate driving. Who wants to do something they hate doing?

Great Divide
by Hanson

The earth is shaking under siege
And every breath we'll meet is fate
Still we hunger for a moment of freedom
Even though the hour is late

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

When every eye is one the fortune
It can only breed contempt
They say blood is thicker than oceans
Still we box our brothers in

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise

We can conquer this great divide

Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
And we're gone
And we're gone
And we're, holding on
And we're, holding on
And we're, holding on

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
