    I don't feel tormented. Just cold, oatmeal did not warm me up like I was hoping.

    The downside of cold temps is more layers= more laundry. Heat is miserable, can make me sick if I'm not careful. So I actually prefer the cold if I have to chose one or the other. Perfect temps for me would probably be in the 50's.

    Fahrenheit.

    Posting my first completed task:

    The Three Pillars of the Jedi - Force, Knowledge, and Self-Discipline - encompass all we do as Jedi and reinforce the precepts of the Jedi Code. We all know that the Force is created by all living things and is communicated to us through the Midi-chlorians in our cells. The Force is bigger than all of us, but expresses itself in two aspects.
    What are these two aspects of the Force and how do they compare/contrast to one another?

    The two aspects of the Force are Light and Dark. A Force sensitive individual has the potential to use the Force to enhance their abilities. When using the Force the individual taps into their feelings for guidance. Even though these feelings almost always consist of good intention they can be led by either the Dark or the Light.
    An individual who chooses to tap into the Dark side of the force is often tempted because they have been led to believe the Dark side is stronger and/or easier to use. The feelings that are affiliated with the Dark side are usually those that come first naturally to most species. Most of us react with anger, revenge, hate, and fear these are impulses that come out of a situation when we are likely to need the Force. The Force can get us out of situations we could not get out of without it. The Force can help save the lives of those we care about. The Force can change the outcome of a situation. It is very tempting to act on impulse and rectify a situation as quickly as possible. However when we give into these temptations the path back to the Light becomes more and more difficult.
    On the other side of the spectrum is the individual who takes the time to sort through their feelings. A Light side force user must remember that the outcome of every situation should be for the greater good of all, not just for their own personal gain or satisfaction. Someone who can find their center, preferably through meditation when time is available will be able to take all possible outcomes into perspective. This method must be practiced so that when there is not time for meditation a good decision can be made in a short amount of time. Some emotions associated with the Light side are mercy, empathy, compassion and gratitude. These are the types of emotions that guide us to decisions that keep us on the Light path.
    It seems the obvious right decision is to use the Light side of the Force. Unfortunately, making the right decision is never as easy as it sounds. Our judgment is easily clouded. A Force user must always be mindful of their feelings. Many obstacles must be cleared each day in order to stay on the path of the Light.
    With this in mind how would you respond to this quote from Jedi Master Barriss Offee
    "Jedi refer to the 'light side' and the 'dark side', but really, these are only words, and the Force is beyond words. It is nor evil, just as it isn't good - it's simply what it is."
    I believe that what Master Offee was trying to express is that the Force itself is not good, evil, light or dark. The Force is much larger than anything we as mortal beings can understand it doesn’t take on characteristics as mortal beings do. When we use the Force we are able to use it for good, evil, light or dark. In that sense my point stands: You should examine whether your ultimate intentions are good or evil when wielding the Force.
    So do you believe that the Force is Living as well
    Yes.
    As Jedi we believe that the Force expresses itself as the Living Force, which is raw and close at hand, it the life energy tingling around you when you pass among plants and animals in a walk through the jungle, and the Unifying Force, a vast cosmic power, is the stars and galaxies, the rippling surface of space and time.

    41 f is 5 C and where I live this is shorts and t-shirt weather after the temp hits -30 below 0.

    why do you want it colder?

    Because I like cold weather. That, and I want it colder at night since my dorm is ridiculously hot. I have a fan on, and my bed next to the (open) window and I'm still overheating.

    I have to use a heater in my place. Because I can feel the heat escaping by the balcony door.
