today in history discussion, we were talking about betty friedman’s the feminine mystique. we were discussing definitions of feminism, and the guy sitting next to me commented “yeah some feminist people think that one day it’s like, REALLY gonna be equal, like in the workplace, not just a few woman CEOs but actually 50% of the CEOs will be women–which seems totally unreasonable. like, that’s never gonna happen” and all i did was shoot him this totally incredulous look. i wish i weren’t so introverted when i haven’t done the reading/don’t know what i’m talking about. i wish i asked him why he thinks that “actual equality” between men and women will ever take place. haha. i could have incited a riot. ah well.

i can’t live by measuring opportunity cost anymore. i don’t do anything because i’d rather be free to do something else if i so choose. but that doesn’t make sense because the end result is that i never do anything. but i like living in this world of opportunity cost. yes. superposition of mind states. “well if i eat at mandarin house, i can’t eat pizza! hmm i can set up an equation: A|mandarin house> + B|pizza> and see if |A|^2 > |B|^2 after 10^(-5) seconds and even though there will be a tail (when i multiply it by a gaussian waveform) in the
