its not that i don't care.  
it's not that i don't care, because i do; but i just need a break from talking about this war. i'm sick of all the arguments that are popping up about it; i'm sick of how no-one seems to be able to tolerate anyone else's opinion. and right now, not talking about it doesn't mean i don't care or that i don't have an opinion, because i do; i just don't feel the need to discuss it with every person within listening range. that is all.

i spent the day with sarah [sparkleoflife] yesterday: shopping, milkshakes, and then a mexican dinner with our other friends, griff and kristy. it had been awhile since the 4 of us had done anything like that together - at least a year most likely - so it was nice. sometimes when nothing else makes sense, all you need is some time with your friends to remind you of whats important, what you need to hold onto.

and the irony of the week came in the form of an email inviting me to come to an assessment interview with a flight company Virgin Blue, which i applied for last weekend; they're currently hiring recruits (ground crew) for... Brisbane. oh, it would be a great, fun job; but i'm not in the least bit sorry i moved back. not at all.

i agree with you on the first paragraph. (not to bring it up again, hah, sorry.)

i just have so many conflicted emotions about it, i'd feel hypocritical putting them into words. so i talk to people about cartoons instead.

Re:
hehe, that's okay :) i mean, i still read about it and stuff, i just haven't felt like getting into any big debates about it, justifying my point of view on it all, etc. that stuff messes with your mind after awhile!
but i agree with the conflicted emotions. i think i'm a bit the same way, really, so many thoughts going on about it...
cartoons are an awesome distraction :D

i'm sick of it too. i wish there was a perfect world where everyone can just listen to one another's POLITE opinions respectfully and that we can all share intelligent conversations or heated debates with one another...peacefully of course.

oh but i always wish.

*sigh*

xox,
