XD Not your fault! Just some PETA radicals live where I live and have been threatening to attack schools with animals in classrooms. @_@ What.

i considered joining PETA at one point in time because of how animals that are used for food in the USA are treated prior to slaughter. I never joined but I definitely don't agree with their stance on fish-keeping for sure.
sorry for bringing up a sore subject though.

Eh, you probably wouldn't agree with their stance on pets in general. :) They hope for a world where domestic dogs are extinct. Honestly, most large organizations(PETA, HSUS) are too big to even do anything other than cause a ruckus. You've heard the whole deal that the HSUS only gives less than one percent of a donation to rescues(or any animal care in general), which amounts to one dollar out of the 10 a month? That sort of stuff just happens with big organizations related to people, cancer, animals, research etc. They get too big to support their cause and start losing focus.

In general I only support small local groups. One group can't take on a nation, but one group can change a single meat factory, one group can work all their efforts into helping a single species, one group can support a single hospital. I like to help those groups, they give the most money to those causes anyway. :) When I buy meat, it's local, farm raised, and humane. I support no-kill animal shelters. I'll donate directly to a cause instead of through another group donating to other groups.


PETA would consider me committing animal cruelty. I have a betta in a 5 gallon tank. I OWN reptiles. Many of them! You should see their stance on that. Just having one=evil.

1) There is a girl in the study room (we call it the nerd room for future reference) who keeps smacking the table every few seconds while she's working and irritating the crap out of me. I know she can't help it and probably doesn't realize, but it's bothering me.

2) I just turned down a research grant from the National Science Foundation because I'm doing way too many research projects and I can't take on another one. I feel really bad and like I'm depriving myself of a future. :/

It's too bad you had to do that but you don't want to have so much to do that you end up making yourself sick and then you can't do anything.

Definitely don't take on too much! I got glandular fever last semester because of the constant stress and exhaustion brought on by my timetable. So very not worth it.
