Three pages down and not too bad either! They're not perfect, of course (oh vocabulary, where art thou?), but I think I've got my mind on the task and my argument works. Kinda. Eh. Anyways, have a look!

Furthermore, it feels like I'm finally doing something really worth my while again where my studies are concerned. But... When did I develop this much of a political consciousness? I like it, hell, I'm proud of it! But to me, it kind of emerged out of nowhere. I've never considered myself much of anything, a romantic or, haha, an outsider if anything at all. Now, I'm getting more and more politically conscious, becoming a humanist, and a feminist to top it all... That's me, that's me evolving, but... All the people you can set off with "having opinions" on your own. Maybe I want that, a tiny little bit, because I enjoy a good discussion a lot. But I've been an outsider, a loner for such a long time that I see myself struggling hard between keeping my mouth shut to please and to belong, and speaking my mind, doing, if there is, the right thing.
Anybody else thinking about politics lately? What do you think goes wrong these days?
I have a very strong opinion on the death penalty and Guantanamo prison because of the obvious reason which is my term paper. If you want to know more about it, ask away. (I've refrained from rambling too much here on the content so far, because I didn't want to bore you unnecessarily. But if you'd want to know, I'd be happy to tell.)
