Uni goes back tomorrow and I feel a lot less shit than I thought I would about it. I am just upset about losing work. I have become so dependent on the little money I make. I really won’t even be able to afford petrol to get to Uni the way I am going. I can feel myself sinking and the horrible, worthless feeling that accompanies job-searching is back at full blast.
" But if we define terrorism as the use of violence against civilians for political objectives, then the US state is the world’s leading terrorist. The powers that be in global society and that control the global political discourse attach the label “terrorist” to violence that they do not approve of, and they attach the label of “freedom and democracy and security” to violence that they do approve of, or that they commit themselves. Moreover, increasingly “terrorism” is used to simply describe political dissent, so that legitimate social movements and political struggles against global capitalism become labelled as “terrorism” in order to justify their suppression.

yeah though the show was great, biggest thanks to Tegan (and the rest of Family Values) Jess, Ashleigh, Phoebe and Haley for keeping me comfortable and making me feel like both sets were a fair success.
