i know, there are some poor choices in wording/structure here but...

The problem with Livejournal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ (if you want to) and find out what people don’t know about you.

what did you study/want to study in school?
6/13/09 4:51 (UTC) - hee - better question is what didn't i study in school...
let's see...

pre-med my freshman year

switched to dual major in biochemistry and chemical engineering my sophmore/junior years (loads of math, physics, chemistry, and a little bit of bio) with other classes in shakespeare, theatre, chorus, german, peace & conflict studies, philosophy 101, and the history of the holocaust

senior year x 3 (more or less) - moved to MD, tried one more semester of chem-e before changing to film/video with english lit/writing and photography minors - also classes in digital art, art history, theatre, drawing, print making, and *(#^$#(* semantics; finally finished with BA in film/video 8 years after i graduated HS (took a few semesters off here and there to earn $ etc)

grad school - studied theatre design with focus on mfa in lighting and set design for multi-media performance (way too out there for the school i was attending - U MD) - all but thesis there, got tired of trying to please professors who wanted broadway pablum when i had no interest in that

absolutely not

poly/open relationships are not for everyone...

for one thing, it requires constant communication and a willingness to discuss feelings and ideas that make many people uncomfortable

for another it does increase certain risks, even if everyone follows the rules and plays it safe

and i understand the fact that a poly/open relationship may not be desirable even in a casual partner

the only time i get frustrated or angry with people is when they judge my relationship(s) to be a bad one based solely on the fact that i chose a poly/open relationship for myself...

please tell me if you think i'm making a bad choice because of his or her personality, or the way they treat me, or the way they behave around others, but don't tell me my relationship is doomed to fail because it's not monogamous
