One of the things that I love about this confession is how different it is from Jim’s speech in “Casino Night”. In The Office, Pam is engaged and has been engaged since BEFORE the Pilot. Jim has never met a non-engaged Pam but he still harbors romatic feelings for her. Not problematic so far, but Jim’s confession to Pam was one that expected an answer, a very specific answer. He wants Pam to tell him that she loves him too.
But at this time, Pam is not a character who makes huge, life-changing decisions in the spur of the moment. She needs time to think and process and talk to her mom and she tries to tell Jim how important their friendship is to her and he cuts her off and tells her to stop. Jim doesn’t want to hear anything other than the idealized script he has in his head. He becomes curt and a bit rude and leaves disappointed and mad just because Pam is trying to deal with this shocking news he’s dropped on her and doesn’t immediately run into his arms.
Jake, on the other hand, offers up his feelings to Amy without strings. He understands she is with someone else. He doesn’t expect anything and he acknowledges that he missed his chance and should have acted sooner. He doesn’t expect a response from her, just needed to tell her what he wished could have happened (using the past tense). He makes no demands on her future and the decision is left up to her. It felt more considerate of Amy’s situation (just starting a serious relationship) and made me love Jake’s character just a little bit more.
the dog all puppies aspire to be
he did it
he caught the tail
his face just says “what am i going to do with my life now”
I would die a thousand times,
just to hear you say my name…
Johns Hopkins University undergraduates and graduate students in addition to members of the local Baltimore community held a silent protest today at noon on the school’s Homewood Campus and on N. Charles Street in honor of Mike Brown, the unarmed black teenager whose shooting on August 9 at the hands of a white policeman sparked protests in his hometown, the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson. The demonstrators began their march in Keyser Quad, a central and much-traveled section of campus, before making their way to N. Charles Street. They wore black and carried handmade signs which made reference to Brown, to Martin Luther King, Jr., to other victims of police brutality, and to general solidarity with the nation’s black community. Like Ferguson, Baltimore is a majority-black city.
The shooting of Mike Brown, subsequent protests, and police response to protests attracted national attention and rekindled ongoing debates over racial profiling and police brutality, much like those which gripped the country after the killing of Trayvon Martin. Johns Hopkins’ silent march was organized by the university’s Black Student Union, though they were joined in protest by unaffiliated members of the student body, members of other on-campus political organizations such as Students for Justice in Palestine, and Baltimore residents.
