Lt. Dan Choi will shortly be on trial for being gay in the military. Sign the petition, please.

In other, less-infuriating news, I has a bed!

I am resisting the urge to just collapse into it for the whole weekend. <3 I was wrong last night: I do have self-control, just not over books.

The rest of the day will be spent cleaning and rearranging things such that I can fit all this stuff in my room in a convenient manner. Alas, I will not have a bedside table for a while. :

So there's no way I'm cutting this.

“I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed. I’m listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs. I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. It’s worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again. All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them. I’m two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic. I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure. So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism. This note is dedicated to tomorrow’s children...”

I don't want to link back to the blog in question, because, well, people have died that way. But I have the link, if anyone wants it.
