Today, my friend/classmate from my Bio and chem class asked me what my take on global warming was. I thought she'd be a supporter, so I basically said that I believed it was happening. After she told me she didn't know what to believe, I was interested in her say. We just basically had a talk, and she gave reasons for her skepticism, which I could understand. She only wanted to bring it up because she volunteers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and there was going to be an exhibition on global warming sometime next year, so the aquarium had the volunteers and such divide up into two groups into those who supported it and those who didn't. I guess it left her shaken up a bit, because she didn't why that division was needed, since the volunteers were all there because they were united by a love of animals.
Well, after hearing her standpoint, I went through my LJ in search of that one entry I wrote where I was ranting about global warming. I can't seem to find t! I wanted to find out if I was being harsh or dogmatic over the subject.. I had a feeling I was, but that might not be the case.. I remember writing how I thought it was okay if people who don't believe in it just don't know about it enough, as long as they weren't like, "NO IT'S TOTALLY WRONG SCIENTISTS MADE IT UP TO GET MONEY." I also remember writing about how you don't need to like/know Al Gore to recycle and such. Conserving energy and all that other good stuff isn't bad practice in any case! That's all I remember writing about.. I can't remember if I was a jerk or not about it. I even clicked "SHOW ALL ENTRIES". To my surprise, I don't have ANYTHING under my global warming tag! WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THAT THEN?! I don't private lock any entries, so I don't know why it wouldn't show up. Maybe I'll do a thorough check again?
It's like that personality thing I read somewhere.. Being unbiased is my enemy. I can't appeal to both sides, but some idealistic view of mine makes me want to try. I guess right now I want to see if.. I might have said anything hurtful? The truth? Something like that. I wanted to find another personal thing to watch out for and fix.
Afterwards, before she had to go, she told me it was especially tough for her because she's Republican. I told her I was one, too. Here in California, it sure is rare to meet a Republican! I felt a.. good connection when I found out she was one, I guess. Not because OH LOL SAME PARTY, but because in terms of politics of personal views, I dislike talking about them with others because, chances are, my view is totally different from everyone's. That's fine and all. I respect everybody's opinion. It's only tough when classes like civics want to separate the class into who does or doesn't support a cause! Being the only one on one side is tough. XD
I'm so tired out from having tests and such before my real finals, which start on Monday. I don't want to complain because everyone has finals too, but I am tired of test taking! Today was my calculus test retake day, and dang, I forgot what a beast the test I chose to redo was! Now I'm unsure on whether or not this time around was improved or not. XD Math study session tomorrow, on a Saturday. Boo.
