Where are you, Spring Break?

I have one midterm this semester, a midterm that I should be stressing about, but I can't stop thinking about how great spring break is going to be. Midterms should bring fear to all those who have to take them, but the satisfaction of flying home after my midterms to see family and friends overrides all negative thoughts about midterms. I miss my friends and family. Its an never ending cycle. When I was home for winter break, I missed Wheaton. Now that I'm here at Wheaton, I miss home. I'm ready for the warmer temperatures of Virginia. I'm ready to go run with my highschool distance team. I'm ready for it all.

I found Susan Sontag's writing to be very thought provoking. I full heartedly agree with her idea that photographs are only a snapshot of an entire event. That once photographs are spread, they are democratized. Photographs will always be democratized whether we like it or not. However, I don't want someone who has seen a photograph to feel as though they've experienced the actual thing. These photographs probably have emotion spilling from them but not as much as anyone who experienced the actual event. Sontag said that photographs "feel like knowledge and therefore power." This is entirely correct, we feel like we understand the subject, the event, the horrific occurences when its only a false knowledge.

Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net
the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
people think about worries that they plainly do not
know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing
without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does running a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?
I'm completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own
experience and feelings online. Please let me know if
you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!
