Parte Uno.
The Citizens United verdict absolutely must be repealed if our country is ever going to see politicians not completely bought and paid for by corporations again. If you're tired of Congressmen legislating and waging war on behalf of big businesses, fed up with politicians trading your civil and worker's rights for favors and campaign money, chafed that your insurance company can outvote you millions to one, SIGN THIS PETITION. Petitions are the only legal recourse we have left.
Granted, petitions are feeble, toothless things, like your local homeless vets. But, if unheard, they're the evidence that we tried to do right and got only lip service if anything at all. Before we can justify anything more drastic, this at least must be done to help secure the moral high ground.

Parte Dos.
My roommate "moved out." Except she didn't, really. She had about 18 hours to pack her stuff and go, and she wasted a good 6, about half of it talking to me about workplace relationship issues. As a result, she left a laundry list of stuff for me to sort, clean, recycle, trash, and/or pack up to ship to her today. That's right, she told me over the phone she wanted me to ship some of the stuff she left behind to her new apartment, to which she failed to give me the address. One of the things she wants me to ship: a guitar. A full-sized acoustic guitar in its case. In order to ship it, I have to buy a guitar box, which runs about $30. She's a sweet girl, but goddamn, she never ceases to amaze me with her inability to pick up after herself. She left her dorm desk stained with a sticker stuck to it that I had to scrap off, left her bathroom fully furnished sans towels and obviously never cleaned, and left her bedroom floor covered in gobs of hair. Other stuff she left, sorted by room:

BabakoSen's Profile Picture

I've always loved art. I spent my middle school & high school career in magnet schools for the arts. In high school I majored in printmaking & art history.
But I've also always loved science, & late in high school I realized that science is more lucrative & maintains its novelty longer. In particular, I find studying physics of space (i.e. astrophysics) an immensely spiritual experience, to the extent that one can be spiritual as a secular humanist. So that's what I'm pursuing my PhD in. Yep, I'm learning how to take the universe apart & bend it to my will. :evillaugh:
Art is still an integral part of my life. It's just not for a grade anymore :meow:.

:star:Note: if you want to color my line art, please PM me for permission (I have never refused—ask and ye shall receive the full-size line drawing), and when you're ready to post, be sure to include both my name and a link to my original line drawing in the description. If I have given you the lines to color, I will check in after a certain amount of time to ensure, if the work has been colored and posted, that my policy has been followed.
