So what do you want to know about me? I'm a senior at SUNY Oswego majoring in psychology (with honors) and cognitive science, and minoring in philosophy. On campus I work at Littlepage Dining Center, and when not in school, I work at Wegman's. Before moving away to college, I’ve lived in Syracuse my whole life. I graduated from West Genesee High School in the class of 2002. Nothing else too interesting about me that I can think of; if you want to learn more, just read on...

Or feel free to contact me, it’s always fun talking to new people :-)

Oh, and also, check out the community I've created and feel free to join! alt_expressions

My views on:

† abortion: Pro-choice.

† drugs: Personally, I tend to stay away from most mind-altering substances unless it's alcohol of course, but everybody can make their own decisions on whether they participate in such activities or not, I won’t hold it against them.

† politics: I try to stay involved in politics, because if you're not involved, then you really can't criticize the government when you're not happy with the way things are going.

† Our Government: Like every government, it has its faults, but in the end, we chose freedom. Not many other countries can say that.

† premarital sex: it's really up to the individual to decide, but personally I'm all for it as long as it's with that "special someone" and you're actually ready to take your relationship to that next level because so many times and for so many different reasons, sex definitely complicates relationships.

† religion: I'm not a religious person at all, but I have no problem with other people who are religious, whatever makes them happy

† same sex marriage: Personally, I'm straight, but I have no problem with homo/bisexuality, so I feel there's NOTHING wrong, whatsoever, with same sex marriage...love is love. You don't control who you fall for, and you really can't control whether or not you love someone of the opposite or someone of the same sex. If two people truly, deeply love each other, I don't think it matters what their gender is. Marriage is all about love, trust, and commitment. Marriage does not discriminate. Who says that gay people don't have the same feelings as straight people? If they love each other, let them get married. Whose it going to hurt? I think in most cases, gay/lesbian couples and marriages are far more beautiful and purer than heterosexual. Why, you may ask? Well my answer is simply this: because they go through so much just to be together. They experience scorn and harassment and close-mindedness, yet through all of this, they remain happy because they have each other. If they love each other enough to stick together through all of that, it definitely says something pretty strong about their true feelings and, thus, I see their relationship as a gift that should be treasured.
