even though this is a journal... i feel like i just can't write about some things.... like the things that make me so mad and upset me. i need to TALK to someone about what happened. right Tanvi? *chuckles* like last night... was not a nice night. I just don't know how to write about it. But if I get up, walk out my door and 10 steps to Tanvi's room, I could really say a lot about it. *sigh*

Re: Last nite's affairs
I don't want to belabor the point... but I guess it was a combination of me PMSing, having a bad day and the unnecessary details of your New Year's party. Perhaps I also took it too far. I was hoping to have a great time with you guys (see Monday) since we hadn't seen each other in a while but the conversation turned sophomoric. I was hoping for "innocent conversation [to] break new ground into the amazingly intellectual realm... once again, wishful thinking." Right? The line of demarcation? Now what do you think caused that?

Re: Last nite's affairs
hmmmmm, well, how to reply... some company makes my actions alter from their quasi-perfect intention... as far as the conversation quote you've decided to pick up on, i was referring to a completely different time and place. i am aware that the presence of a certain party creates a tension that demands resolution. being aware of such difficulties, i try my best to diffuse the situation. if that means a sharp decline in the quality of the talk, so be it. i will not sit in the middle of a feud; i'd rather be blissful in thinking that at least someone is making attempts to declare peace. i've been generalized so easily into a perverted typical male that i can assume the role without too much loss of face. as for the conversation, i don't think it was that terrible; just a reminiscence of the past and time to ponder the events that occurred, as well as receive other opinions of events that transpired. i apologize if that jeopardized the feeling of communalism. everyone has moods... i do not understand why the division occurred then, besides practicality of eating. i tried to talk across but i was confronted without confrontation. meaning- i was dismissed. hence, i returned to the same discussion at the table.

i'll just throw my hands up at this point. its done. further exhaustion appears to just agitate whatever little bumps exist.

Perhaps there is no intellectual realm. Perhaps what is considered intellectual is merely novel.

Re: perhaps...
Yes perhaps there is no realm but I don't think that what is intellectual is merely novel. Indeed when we say someone is intelligent it implies that the person can cope with needs arising from new problems and novel situations and uses their power of reasoning effectively. However it seems to me that being intellectual stresses a grasp of abstract and complex concepts. Something considered intellectual can perhaps also be creative or aesthetic. I think having an "intellectual" grasp of any subject makes a person better appreciate or understand that subject.

What do you think? Who is this anyway? :)
