    Watching the US Govt shutdown. This is so stupid. I won't talk politics here, but I feel like hauling the leaders of both parties into a room and beating some sense into them. I feel terrible for those non essential govt workers who have to sit at home until this mess is resolved. It is such a sham and a crying shame all around...

    I've noticed that most professionals tend to associate with their peers. Doctors have doctor friends. Lawyers have lawyer friends. Etc.
    Ssometimes that helps because there are only certain things you can share with sometime who does the same type of work with you that they can understand. On the flip side though, sometimes it is good to have a diverse group of friends as some people in the same field can be whole asses.

    its not so much for me about the having people to hang out in your spare time. Its more about having people who get what you're studying when you hang out with them in your spare time. Kinda like how only a doctor can tell a doctor what it is like studying for the boards. Everyone copes with this differently. I just decided I needed to fight to have a social life with people who don't have to understand my career choice. Sometimes that helps to keep me not as cynical.
    PHHH I must be the exception because I hang out with peeps if they have the qualities that I like in a friend I can care less what profession they are :) its what their qualities I look for

    So what's in a name? My former ex (now my gf) spent most of our phone convo tonight debating the virtues of what names mean to kids and such. I learned that she is fine with a routine I'll describe in a second. So far, my brother has kept our overall tradition alive. My dad, my brother, myself and now my nephew have the dame initials: D.D. My brother gets to name any boys he has with the their first name starting with the letter "D". My sister in law's names start with a "K", so both my nieces have names starting with the letter "K". In my case, if my gf and I have kids, the girl names would start with and "L". Naming is complicated. Lol.
    wow ....adult stuff I still have a while before I can think of names BUT first I have to get over a certain someone and back to what you said ......that is complicated but im glad my name is unique no one has my name or at latest that I know of

    ^THIS I mean really right now it shouldn't matter what party they are in. what matters is getting things done and resolved. I mean didn't they learn how to compromise when they were little. I just think its pathetic that they cant work together

    I would find it boring if all my friend were all computer majors. luckily most of my chick friends are going to be hygienist, one computer programmer, a few criminal justice major, and I like it like that !

    Isn't this because these people are already together a lot of time in their professional time?

    I have a lot of biologists as friends, just because I got to know them very well over the years. But I also have a lot of physicists as friends, because in my old lab there were many of them and I got to know them too very well. I can talk about other stuff than just biology, I don't think it's necessary that my friends understand my work.
