How I Really Feel

Bernie is on campus. There's a lot of vote for Trump chalkings on the sidewalks round about campus. Apparently Cruz called a hoop a basketball ring. You know, since he's in Indiana. It's all very exciting. Elections, amirite? It's the most important election of our generation! America is going down the crapper and it's up to us to save it!! This is our time!!! Et Cetera!!!!

Yeah, I'm tired. So I've decided that this is where my political loyalties lie this year.

What the Internet Tells Me about My Identity

I'm fascinated by questions of identity, as I've discussed rather extensively on previous occasions. Luckily I live in an age with the internet which is chock full of quizzes that tell you who you are slash would be if you were someone/somewhere else. Because I'm so fascinated by questions of identity, I pretty much always take these quizzes whenever I come across them. That said, I never actually share them via the social medias because I feel weird about participating in the economics of internet page visits and clicks and so on and so forth. While I don't share them directly, I've spent the last year or so collecting the results of my quiz-taking, and I've decided that the time has come to say fair's fair, to pay the rent now, to pay our share. The time has also come to publish the results of my quiz-taking and avatar-creating. So here y'go.
