Win a “Gossip Girl” Ring
Win a “Gossip Girl” ring by Sorrelli Jewelry!
Not here, of course. Most of my money goes either for books at the bookshop or for coffee at The Dirty.
But Shine Media is giving away the ring that Jessica Szohr wore in last week’s “Gossip Girl” episode, “A Touch of Eva.”
Shine Media is a Manhattan public relations firm that represents fashion designers. Having their fashions appear on “Gossip Girl” is the best advertisement that designers could have.
School is great this term but I have a couple of really tough classes. I’m keeping my A average but working extra hard to do it. It’s on my mind so much that I’m even only half paying attention to “Gossip Girl.”
I like our new college president. And as usual, there are controversies, like the one about having Princeton philosopher Peter Singer speak on campus. He’s against eating meat because he thinks that animals are just as important as people. I disagree with that idea, although I’m kind of a wannabe vegetarian and am against cruel treatment of any living thing. Except maybe bugs, but even those I try to catch and put outside when I can. The fact that people are more important than animals does not mean that animals’ welfare or suffering doesn’t matter.
Oh, by the way, the controversy about Dr. Singer has nothing to do with vegetarianism. It’s mainly about his belief that it’s okay to take innocent human life. You can make up arguments for almost any idea, no matter how crazy. On the other hand, if we only listen to people with whom we agree, then we can’t test or develop our own beliefs. So I will listen to him.
Well, if I expect to keep my A, I should get back to studying. I hope that you are having a great October!
