I can't believe the semester is almost over. Soon i will no longer be a freshman, i'll be a second year student. Wow how time flies. This year well this semeter seemed shorter or just went by faster than my first one. Summer is just around the corner. It was beautiful outside today i let the top down on my car for the first time. (I just got the car this year.) It felt so good letting the wind blow through my hair.

Hate Radio

This was interesting to read. I couldn't believe that someone could or would say the things she said she heard on the radio. It just didn't seem right and how could no one complain. I can't believe that some people still feel that way about about different minority groups. It seems as though so much has been accomplished over the years but some people are still at the beginning and don't know or care. I'm not blind or numb to the fact. I hope i never have to experience any of it but i have had friends and my father tell me about their instances. It hurts sometimes to know, because I am apart of a minority, that some people will not give me a chance simply because of the color of my skin. I do believe everyone should be treated fairly unless they prove otherwise. No one should be prejudged.

This week has been great except for getting sick mid week. I was informed that i received a job that i had been hoping i would get. I hung out with friends last night to celebrate a friends 21st birthday. i have a few years before i can celebrate my own. I also received my very first credit card. i was so excited now i start building up my credit. i haven't used it yet though i don't know what i want to buy. I'm sad to leave my current job cause of the friends i've met but i'll just have to keep in touch cause i'll be more money and i'll have better hours. My last day is sunday.

Presentation on Perception

A person's perception of a certain topic and or idea depends all on the presentation they receive. For instance as we have been talking about in class the way we see a certain city or place on the news or through our own eyes determines how we feel about that area. Everything relies on presentation whether you're trying to get a job, buying a car or determinig where you would like to live. If i get a bad feeling about an area then i'll try and stay away or i'll feel weary of it.

The positive perception of LA

The City of LA is presented in a positive way in that there is so much to see and do. You can just walk around to everything. The Experience LA site said "Who says you need a car to get around LA?" This means that the streets are safe and something to do is always right around the corner. They also showed different activities from different cultures to show how diverse they are.

I'm studying in purdy/kresege for a psych exam right now. It is extremely better than being in UGL because there is always so much noise. Its hard to concentrate.

I know this is supposed to be best of but i think Detroit has the worst highway travel system ever. Every morning when i have to go to class. There is always a traffic jam not because of an accident just because some people don't know how to drive. If there is an accident people are looking and trying to see what happen which also slows down traffic then once i get to where the accident is and pass it there is all this open road. I take 94 to and from school. In the morning it takes about half an hour, coming home around 2:15 it takes 15 minutes to get home.????

I think that Burger King has the cheeseburger's and fries. Their burgers are always juicy and tender. I like the way they season their fries. I wish we had one on campus.
