Nature of Technology: Life science, it’s fluid and will never end. We are made of molecules and thus so, are always shifting: so do our technology advances. The nature of technology in a sense is like a glass of water. Water forms to whatever inanimate object your poor it in. Looking back at history, though I don’t know the preciseness, I know that penicillin was one of our greatest advances in technology in medicine. With every good advantage, there is always a side effect. With modern medicine, people live longer than what nature intended- farther inducing our economy to use more pesticides to produce the volume of crops we need to sustain life and thus, taking up further more space than what earth can provide. Weaponry advances have also crippled our lands and put many countries at war over peanuts and religion; polluted the land with chemical waste and etc… Give and take… Pick your choice of POISON.

Nature of society and the interactions amongst them: This is a tough one: we are all so different. Some are black as night and some are white as pearls. Others are in-between and some are purple. Regardless, religion, race, backgrounds- they all separate us in class and form entities amongst crowds of vultures. We will always regard each other with respect but stand a country or continent away in mockery (which isn’t right by any means).
Christian: You are muslim? Wonderful! (OMG these guys are so screwed up in the head)
Muslim: You are Christian? Wonderful!(Fools each pork? What?)
Buddhism: You are Mormon? (You know, there’s 19 levels of hell and I’m sure one of them will fit your fancy)
Morman: You are a Buddhist? (How many levels of hell do you people believe in- reincarnation? Savages)

See where I’m getting at? We as a society, separated by miles and the earths cracks we now call rivers and oceans, are plagued with senseless and ignorant history passed down from our forefathers which clouds our thoughts and blurs our perceptions of “unity”. Till this very day, we are still segregated by sex, race, religion and class and it will never end. Our interactions amongst each other, like water,is constantly changing but the history remains. Our society together with other societies, don’t see eye to eye and are always stressed in our relationship to stay out of each other’s hair. I maybe be going out on a stretch talking about society as in the “world” but society in our own country is too contained thus isn’t interesting enough for me to talk about.

I opened up a water bottle made by Nestle today to quench my thirst and I almost spilled the bottle on my shirt! You know when you open a water bottle that theres a small cap from the surface of the water to the cap? Well, I didn’t have that with this bottle of water! I wonder if it’s a fluke or it’s every bottle? I’ll see! Signing off! Class is starting!

Got a cola at one of the vending machines on campus. Cherry to be exact + large frieds at Burger King. the vending machine took 70cents from me today! Ripp off! The drink was 1.25 and machine spat out 0.05cents. Dammit! I knew that machine rips you off but I momentarily forgot at that instance in time because of my thirst for something sugary. My fault. I hate the vending machine.

I only wonder how many people do go for refunds. It’s not worth the trouble for the trek for the refund in my opinion. I’ll just [chill- what the gf would say] outside till the traffic drops off. I hate driving an hour to reach home sweet home. Rather stay here and look over notes.

USF has a lot of students attending classes during the morning and early-afternoon. I hate to admit but parking is horrendous! On my luckier days, I would find parking extremely easy- I task not everyone succeeds in and today was my unlucky day. Couldn’t find parking anywhere!!!

I was at school thirty minutes early and rode my brakes till 11:20AM. What time does class convene? 11:00AM. Isn’t that beautiful? There are many things I would love to hate and being late to anything is one of them.

USF needs to get their act together! They are in the midst of building a garage for student parking and I’m sure that will alleviate a lot of the stress that students go through to find decent parking. I’m sure it will fill up as quickly as if we didn’t have the newly rectified garage- for rather, a rectified solution. How ironic. As I see here, I think it will not fill up as quickly as I theorize because I see at least 100 cars zooming around for parking and of those 100 cars, there’s bound to be one spot for me to find parking!

My professor of ecology found out how USF mapped their parking plans… I forgot the exact specifics but it’s something that goes like this… For 1000 parking spaces, USF allows 3000 students to utilize the under-ill-equiped-non-supporting parking spaces. USF figures that at any point in time, 3000 students will not all require parking thus they use TIME to play the course of meandering through volleys of cars and the task of snaking in between them. Wonderful isn’t it?

Pisses you off? I’m sure it does! Theres a lot of people who do that. That teaches bad habits to others! To think there isn’t any other place they can throw it in. Say, their own damn car duh? I don’t understand why people feel the need to throw shit out of their car. They should be fined 1000 a pop- that ought to teach them half-wits! I guess it’s the notion of being “macho” and we know how macho they are alright! People with shit for logic piss me off!
