The Internet/Interference withdrawl is not gonna be fun but it'll be good for me.

Where are you going to go? What is your major?

As a matter of fact, I think both of my parents are extremely pleased that all four of us are boys.
I want both. I grew up in an all-female family but I think I'd have an awesome time with a son and I'd love to give a daughter a protective big brother. (obviously you can't count on such plans.) (hmm i am sure that this stems from being the oldest daughter in an all female family and romanticizing that relationship. also the all female family may be why I am so into really, really masculine guys. or it might just be that muscles and assertiveness are hot.)

Sounds like the Philly withdrawal might be good for you.

I'm too much a Philadelphian in attitude not to enjoy it here.

I should only be spending "this" much time here on my lunch hour. But I'm bored too often.

When you're in Africa figure out a way to sneak down to Cape Town. Its epic.

I'm a Bostonian/NYer. Might seem counterintuitive but I truly believe the attitudes are very similar, with a slight inferiority for the small city and overblown superiority for NY. I loved NY which gave the Bostonian in me fits. But I also loved it as a 20 year old (with a fake ID) and would love it in my 20s but not to raise a family - then I'd want a Boston.

Well my job is full of physical labour. So no sitting but during break.

I have a half sister that is 15. She's the reason why I don't know how to raise a daughter. She's gone crazy in the last 12 months.

yeah that'd cost the same as getting to europe and i'd rather go to europe and see what u2 i can, which might be none, but i'm whistfully willing to empty my bank account to get over for a week of shows. some day i'd love to see south africa...along with pretty much every country.

I think everyone goes crazy to a certain extent in their teens. How bad has she been?

Mine too, unless I'm doing stuff on the engineering side, which is all computer based.
