pretty or beautiful?

imo, pretty is more like cuter, wheras beautiful is more like stunning. I hate to use stunning, because prettiness can be stunning, as well. It is really hard to define these things...lets see what the dictionary says..

Pretty: attractive in a delicate way without being truly beautiful or handsome

Beautiful: pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically, the beautiful people 1 fashionable, glamorous, and privileged people. 2 (in the 1960s) hippies. the body beautiful an ideal of physical beauty

I dont particularly like them, but it shows there is a difference. ok, Beautiful is Elizabeth Taylor, Pretty is brigitte Bardot? no, that is a bad one. but you get my drift, right? I think they are equal, but different kinds of aesthetic appealing-ness...thoughts?

Do you ever

Do you ever get that feeling that you should be having "a feeling" but you dont know what the feeling is or if you even have it as opposed to creating it for yourself? I have that feeling tonight...I cant sleep, and I feel like my life is not really going anywhere..but then, I think about it more, and I have great friends and wonderful parents, a great family, and a lot to be thankful for...then why do I feel like this? Like what? You know..No, I dont know...

the thing is, I know I feel a certain way, I suppose you could call it melancholy, but I really cant define it, and worse I can't say what is causing it, which leads us to the worst thing of all. Usually, you cant find an answer without a question, so I have no way of not getting this feeling becuse I dont know what the feeling is. It could be foreboding, loneliness, hapiness (in a really weird form), anger (again, in a really weird form), etc. My current hypothesis is that I feel like this month I am pretty inactive. I am not doing anything to help what I want to do with my life, other than school, which is dragging along horribly...I am happy though..I mean, most of the time. Now, I am not happy or sad...like I said, I cant define this feeling...thoughts?

I know that chivalry in modern times is sometimes considered to be degrading to women, but just because a woman CAN open a door doesn't mean she HAS to. I guess I a romantic, longing for the olden days, lol. It's just that none of my guyfriends really do stuff like that...we are more just equal, but can't we be equal and still have him hold the door for me or whatever? Same with dating, the boy asks the girl out. All power to women who have the courage to ask a man out, but I can't do it, and again, I am a romantic traditionalist with that kind of thing.

agree or disagree?

cool vs. uncool

ok, so my school dance was last night, and I saw all these little sixth grade girls. There seems to be a huge gap between their maturity and our maturity, and I dont hold it against them, it is just interesting to see the difference. Anyway, one thing I hate is people who try to be so cool. Like, whatever it is, making weird poses for pictures, etc. Almost all of the girls I saw were doing that. It made me so angry. This is my approach to cool and uncool. there is no such thing, people just made those terms up to make themselves better than anybody else. A thing can be cool, but not a person. Things dont have varying personalities... SO now to decide if we are all cool, all uncool, or all just--there. I cnat decide. I mean, it doesnt matter, does it? are there any things that would determine which to be?

Tabloids...Celebrity...it kind of trails off into it's own thing...

I was buying some food for my solar cooker project in Math class, and wen to the check out to pay (obviously). As always, there were big, bright tabloids, with huge words emblazoned on the front!!!!!!!!! There were such stories as BRITNEY'S $130,000 ALL FOR K-FED!!!, and CUTEST BEAR ON EARTH!!!, and TOM FEARS THE WORST!!! printed across the top of a picture of him and Katie Holmes "canoodling" for the papparrazzi. Looks to me like a happy couple...

What I don't understand is what really attracts people to these magazines. I have given in once or twice and bought them myself, and I STILL don't know. True, they are entertaining, but is that the only thing? We are in no way connected to these peoples' lives. You don't see "Real Life Tabloid" publishing articles about the random high school girl cheating on her boyfriend with the next door neighbor, so why should we care what happens to celebrities? What makes our idea of a celebrity a celebrity? The definition of celebrity (from the Oxford American dictionary built into my laptop) is a famous person. Don't you respect the majority of famous people? Couldn't your nobel prize winning scientist be defined as a celebrity? Why don't you read about his or her multi million dollar surgery?

I think it is the celebrities who make the most noise. People like (no offense to them) Brittney Spears, Tom Cruise, and cute bears. OK, just kidding about the bear part. They don't talk. But you knew that. Anyway, I was standing there in line, about to make an amazing discovery oabout tabloids, but then my dad said, "OK, Sarah, let's leave now." Figures.

HAHAHAHA, did I get you that time, too? I was only partially kidding arround. I still don;t know what it is about taboids that makes them so attractive, or why we want to hear about the latest Hollywood scandal. It is only depressing, in my opinion. But next tim eyou reach for that tabloid, whether it is the one that you regularly get and are loyal too, or the one that is the cheapest that you buy to prevent boredom on a quick flight, think about why you are buying it. Then come back and comment me telling me why! =P
