I appreciate people with rhythm

Gush weddings are worth it to go to, if just for this one part!

so stressed out that i'm probably developing an ulcer

i am so, so stressed. and i know these things are little compared to a bigger picture and that this too shall pass. but for right now, i have so much hanging over my head and on my mind that i can't think straight. i've lost weight this year from stress. i can't get work done because i'm turning things over in my mind too much. my tummy is a knot half the time, so i can't eat. argh. senior year was supposed to be fun. whatever happened to that?

like, yeah

UNCLE: I almost bought the Chicago Manual of Style.

COUSIN (age 14): You don't have style if you have a book on it.

ME: No no, not clothing style.

COUSIN: Oh.

see below

how in the heck do you write a paper that goes like this?

This is what science looks like now: Have a paradigm. Accept it. Research under it. Find anomalies. Too many anomalies. Have a crisis. Have a new paradigm. Accept it. Research under it. Find anomalies. Too many anomalies. Have a crisis. Have a new paradigm. Accept it. Research under it. Find anomalies. Too many anomalies. Have a crisis. Have a new paradigm. Accept it.

This is what science looked like then: a --> b --> c --> d --> e --> f --> g --> h --> i --> j --> k --> l --> m --> n --> o --> p --> q --> r --> s --> t --> u --> v --> w --> x --> y --> z

i don't want to do work, ever.

I think I'm developing senioritis.

a little bit sad

There is a girl I went to high school with whom I see occasionally. She's really fun and bubbly and I liked her a lot in high school. I still like her now.

She got married recently. Yay, mazel tov. Only thing is -- her hair is totally uncovered. She's back in school, in classes, and the only way you'd realize she's married is that now she has two rings on her left hand.

What happened in between high school and now? Where -- or when -- did she decide that it was okay to leave her hair uncovered after marriage? When did she start wearing pants? When did her high school education wear off and antithetical choices set in?

I'm happy she's happy. But I'm sad, too. I wonder if something went wrong in her education that made her want to rebel against it and choose a different derech. She went to a seminary that I doubt would espouse women not covering their hair after marriage and wearing pants. Does she just not care? Does she just choose to ignore what she knows to be right, or does she really believe that what she does is perfectly fine?

I know that lots of women don't cover their hair and wear pants. Whatever. Not my business. But I always wonder, especially for the women who either had a Jewish education or who gave their children Jewish educations -- what are they thinking? I don't mean that in a dismissive or sarcastic way at all -- I really want to know. I don't think they could be ignorant about hair covering and pants wearing, since they either knew about it from their past or they learn about it via their kids in school. So what is it? Do they know some shittah about it that I don't? Do they just not care? Do they care, but they don't feel ready for those things? What is it?
