Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! I don’t really celebrate it. I mean, to me, a new year starts when summer starts. I’m still taking the same classes, studying for finals. But I do have a few plans… I’m not staying up, but I am downloading the Rachel Maddow New Year’s show tomorrow morning, instead of staying up unreasonable hours just to see it. And I’ll be writing an essay on the stormy sixties- need to pick two important political figures. Unfortunately, everything I want to write about isn’t included in that chapter. I’d love to write about ERA and Betty Friedan… but no, I’ll write about Malcolm X or JFK or Martin Luther King Jr. Not that they aren’t influential… just not what I want to write about.

Well… happy new year!
