war in Kosovo, the environment, homosexuals (there's a student group /
department of the student
government body for "lesbians and other women" - I almost feel
discriminated against beacuse I'm only
"other"... ;). The people whose opinions I notice most are sometimes even
too left for me (and I'm left on principle...)"

(In Canada, unlike I think in
the US but I might be wrong, you go from high school straight to
university--college is an altogether different sort of beast.)
