How do you rank prestige? Who is most prestigious, the doctor or the garbage collector?
I know what you're thinking, the doctor of course. And YES I really do see why the doctor should be able to harvest prestige for his hard work and long education, but what about the garbage man who collects garbage EVERY SINGLE day? Of course it all depends. It depends on what do YOU, as a person, a single individual rank most, high education or hard physical work. I think it's just as hard to keep a job as garbage man, as it must be go get a job as a doctor. You might not think about it, but both jobs have crazy hours. Alright. Maybe doctor vs. garbage man was a bad example, but what I really want you to think about is that both jobs are hard jobs, even though you don't think about it. In this problem definition this question also presents itself; is it what you think, or is it what the society thinks? I really do think that we are influenced by the society than we know, and that we WANT to know. But hey, what do you think?

How to react

Today, my friend told med that her sister had threadended to kill herself. She had dissappeared and her, her mother, her sisters friends and parents had to go looking for her. Luckily they found her alive, but now her sister won't stop crying and she won't tell why.
When my friend told me this I was shocked. But the worst thing was that I had no idea how to react on it. Of course I comforted her, I let her talk instead of me giving a lecture or something. I doubt that would have been helpfull. But this reminds me of another time not that long ago, a couple of weeks maybe where my other friend told me that her friend had tried to kill himself as well, and ended up at the hospital. Again, I was shocked and had no idea what to say. So what to do when someone tells you a story like that? What do they want? What would be the best to say? It's kind of hard isn't it.

She's the X

So last year I lived together with this girl called Charlotte, and we had an awesome time but it just became too much of a "hanin' out" kinda existence for me. I didn't do my homework and I went late to bed because of all the haning out. And then she'd get sick and I'd had to bring her food all the time, plus she wouldn't do her part of the weekly cleaning which made me feel like I did everything. Which, of course - SUCKED. I started to hide out in my room and not answer her when she called and so on. It all ended up very grim, she became very angry and so did I, I just didn't bother to fight with her about it.

So this year she said to me "I've been very mad and sad, but I think we should just forget it all" and I really agree! And luckily for us, we don't live together this year. But only 2½ week into the new school year, I see this all happening again. Now grimmer! I love haning out with her, but not three times a day, every day! It 's too much. Today she wanted me to go with her to the local cafĂ© au lait to get some french fries, AS we have done the last 1½ weeks and I said "naah ah, not really" because, I really didn't! And while studying she comes to my room, knock on my window and she's like "hey can I borrow 50 cents"? Not that it's a problem that she wants to borrow a such small amount of money >.<'' It's just the whole I'M TRYING TO STUDY AND I'M REALLY LAZY SO DO OT INTERRUPT ME NO I DO NOT WANT TO COME WITH YOU part that annoys me. It's like a bad bromance! I swear, if this is going to start being a problem again I'll freaking...... Dom something really bad and bitchy >.<'' geez.

And now I'm just all irritated and most definently, not studying. I have an assignment for friday but it's only 200 words. Bah, well love ya'll xo Elk (:
