I'm sitting in the library on campus right now in attempts to get something done before my morning class. I couldn't help but stare out the window while waiting for coffee from the soullessness that is Starbucks. I watched people walk to class and wondered what they were thinking about. Absolutely no one was smiling. What a negative way to start the day off. I know it's 8:30, but it's another beautiful day complete with a cool breeze and plenty of sunshine. I think this observation says a lot about American cultural norms and what we deem valuable.
Also, today marks the one month point until my birthday.
