    I started reading The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and it's so good! It immediately drew me in with what might be the best opening paragraph of a novel I've ever read:

    "For eight years I dreamed of fire. Trees ignited as I passed them; oceans burned. The sugary smoke settled in my hair as I slept, the scent like a cloud left on my pillow as I rose. Even so, the moment my mattress started to burn, I bolted away. The sharp, chemical smell was nothing like the hazy syrup of my dreams; the two were as different as Carolina and Indian jasmine, separation and attachment. They could not be confused."

    I'm currently applying for housing overseas,and I just love how this particular country only presents the following two personality choices:

    1. I am more of an introvert and prefer to live in a space in which I can reflect.
    2.I am more of extrovert and don't mind having people around me regularly.

    Of course,I choice the single room and introvert option. But,why can't the States be like this professional and school wise????

    I feel you on that. People tend to assume I don't know or understand anything because I'm super quiet or ask questions for clarification. I find a lot of people just aren't specific enough but I don't want to do or understand anything wrong, so I ask anyway.

    But it makes for a nice surprise too when you defy expectations, doesn't it? >:)

    I found this line in a text I'm reading

    'Throughout, from start to finish, I observe that they have no clear image of themselves; they can only see and shape themselves through other people's eyes...'

    Huh. It's good to know it's not that weird, since this is applicable to me

    Today I ponder and contemplate on prejudices.

    Why do people have prejudices? Is prejudice similar to having preferences? Preferences have a notion of conscious choice, but so is prejudice, isn't it?

    People can prefer to dislike a certain type or thing or people and that's prejudice. So maybe they're one and the same...

    Hmm...well, I can't disagree, there's something about it. I guess to me, prejudice has that connotation of cultural influence, so you have less 'personal/conscious' control over it?

    Of course it could also be that preference really is the one where people don't have a choice, e.g. preferring blue over red isn't as much a conscious choice as there's just something that instinctively makes you gravitate toward one thing and away from another.

    I think so, too. Prejudice is as much natural as it is also nurtured. People can naturally prefer to dislike something because they learned it as an experience, or just instinctively. But the culture connotation part is really what got me off today.

    People shouldn't prefer to like other people just because they learned a prejudice from experience that makes them like/dislike a certain type of people. People should just see people as what they are and leave them as they are; not everyone that they prefer to like/dislike - say, from an ethnic/age group - to be similar and therefore the same. No one is ever the same as the group that they represent. I can never understand why people except others to see them individually, but they cannot see other people as individually as possible.

    Anyway, fruit for thought I guess...
