Hi, Livejournal.

So, I graduated.

First, I graduated from college.

Now, I've graduated from LiveJournal. I'm still writing, though not as much about my day-to-day life as I once did back when I got this thing in my mid-teens. I'm still going to preserve it, since I did document a few important things in it, too--particularly my experiences during Hurricane Katrina.

Since I'm officially a grownup (kinda), I get to be my own "dot-com." If you're curious about my ramblings, visit my latest blogoventure.


That's all. :)

Goodbye, Karl.
Goodbye Condi.

Thanks for the memories.

Clearly, it is final exam season

Things I Have Done to Procrastinate Studying for My Shakespeare Final

1. Started studying Russian (I'm not taking a Russian class this semester).

2. Wandered through the linguistics section on the 5th floor of the library. (I found a book all about the F-word.)

3. Read the Miami New Times article about the Art Basel events I won't have time to attend.

4. Played guitar.

5. Researched the strange phenomenon of sneezing when exposed to direct sunlight. (It's called ACHOO Syndrome. I could not make that up if I tried).

6. Researched graduate school programs.

7. Prepared for the GRE.

8. Made coffee.

9. Called my mother.

10. Watched snippets of Death to Smoochy.

11. Wrote an Op-Ed article to the Miami Herald about the news media's absence at the CIW Protest last Friday.

12. Edited a book review that I'm getting published.

13. Wrote an angry letter (that I won't send) to a neighbor whose dog barks all day and all night.

14. Wrote in my LiveJournal.

Out of Town

I will be in Denver for an Amnesty International conference from this afternoon until late on Sunday, August 12th. If you need me (not that I can imagine you will), I will have my cell phone and access to e-mail: weston.leah AT gmail DOT com.

A lively debate

Hi, everyone! I've dropped off the face of the LiveJournal world a bit, at least in terms of writing, but suffice it to say that my summer has been extremely eventful. It is amazing how far I have come in a year and how so many things are falling into place very suddenly. This summer was much needed for me.

I've been meeting interesting people throughout the summer, as I have been involved in a number of activist things in the community. Naturally, being amongst a crowd of people who thinks about these things provides nerds like myself with the perfect outlet to debate about my worldview. My friend Bruce and I got into a small debate about our generation. I, of course, am largely pessimistic about us as a whole while he conceives of our generation as more akin to the youth of the 1960s. Rather than try to poorly articulate our points, I am going to put our e-mail exchange under separate LJ cuts. If you have the time and the will, I would love to know what you think.

I like to ride my bicycle...

I just got a brand new bike. Though I loved my single-speed Trek cruiser, it is not practical for the long commutes that living in Miami suburbs requires. Is there anyone in town who wants to ride? I'm thinking I would love to ride to Key Biscayne or to the beach, even the Everglades if it's not too disgusting outside.

Bernard Herman - 1985-2007

My friend and lifelong New Orleanian, Bernard, died on Saturday, May 12th, 2007. He took his own life almost exactly one year after his father did the same. Though I have no reliable source of confirmation for this, the Wikipedia article about him alleges that he did it at the 17th Street Canal levee in the Lakeview area of New Orleans.

I don't think words can really capture my sadness.

Reality Check #4504

Today, I got my first wedding invitation for someone in my high school graduating class. It made me a little bit nauseous.
