The big news of today is I survived my first college midterm. I guess survive really isn’t the word because I will be really upset with myself if I don’t get an A, but I at least made I through the test. It was not as hard as I thought it would be, although I shouldn’t say that since I don’t know what I got yet. I do, however, feel that I was prepared for the exam. The studying I did on my own, with our group, and my notes really got me through the test. I was worried that focusing on the larger picture would hurt me, but I found that in fact it helped me more than knowing the text. Anyway the test is over, I am still alive, and I got enough sleep…college here I come.
After our test we talked about my least favorite topic in the entire world—Women subordination. I absolutely cannot understand why people think women are inferior to men. I went to an all girl middle school so I got an extra dose of women empowerment and maybe that is why women subordination makes me so angry; I’m not sure I can really put my finger on what it is that ticks me off about it besides I can’t even fathom why men would think they are better. I was unaware until today that Aristotle believed, because he was also a scientist, that men’s sperm contained the baby and that women where just the vessel for procreation. Honestly how wrong can you be? I am mean my goodness. I understand that he did not have all the technology that we had, but are you kidding me? I know that out of the 4 EC kids I am pretty sure I am the only one who really can’t stand people who think women are inferior to men. I really really really can’t stand men who think women are just suppose to make them a sandwich.
And that was pretty much my day. Until tomorrow, Over and Out blog readers.
