This is super interesting…..
Seth Meyers on the Steroid Era of storms.
From last night’s Late Night filmed during Sandy, with no audience members.
Sandy is trying to tell us something. Seriously, I can’t believe not one environmental issue was mentioned during the debates. Let’s start with the fact that yes, our world is dying.
This sums up how I feel about a certain percentage of U.S. voters. If you agree, please share. Maybe it’ll motivate some people?
I just read an article (located here) and it basically makes its point pretty clear; a point that I agree with to the fullest extent, so i don’t actually have a lot to say about it except for the fact that people need to see that although rape and sexual abuse is seen as a “women’s issue” the incidence of male rape is becoming increasingly more prominent. So with gender aside, joking about it is just making reporting it more difficult for individuals affected. Rape is not laughable, it is not something to be ashamed of, and it is a real life issue that is affecting more individuals than one can probably imagine.
That is all!
69 days until Hawaii. That’s like only a little over two months which means a little over a month until i am in FW, on an island, with catie, and 4000 miles closer to Brandon. What? YESSSSAHHHHHH
I think it is time to voice my thoughts once again considering ‘tis the season of opinions.
The election is coming. I am not a political individual. I would honestly rather gouge my eyes out or put pincher bugs in my ears than watch and listen to debates, political ads, arguments, and the media’s coverage. I do however, believe that as an American, and a proud one, it is my civil duty to vote in an educated and appropriate way.
I am not going to tell you which candidate i approve of, because that is not the issue that i have as of late. Everyone has their opinion. I know what i agree with and what i do not. I know what is important to me and those things form my foundation when it comes to choosing the candidate that i feel is the “best fit.” In all honestly, I believe neither are truly the greatest, and my confidence is not as high as it should be but with the recent binge of political nourishment that i have taken in, i may just be overwhelmed. So here i am to purge.
I have a problem with statements that make candidates obviously unable to relate. I don’t think a human lacking female parts should discuss women’s issues in depth. I do think though, that they should have an opinion on them. I think a person’s view on women or gender in general says a lot about their character and where they come from. The words they choose, the examples they provide, the relationships they try to explain all play a huge role in how I view that individual. Basically saying “Where da girls at?” in a less abrasive way, is not acceptable. We are here, where we have always been. (I have this dormant feminist within me that only comes out occasionally, but when it does it rages. Sorry.) But for real… Where da girls at?
I have a problem with television attack ads. As i write this, there is one on television in the background. Are these ads effective at this point? I am confident that people realize these ads are exaggerated, embellished, and wastes of money. There are so many that the majority of commercials are devised of some type of attack on another individual running. My name is Amanda Marie and I approve this message.
My over all opinions remain that I have my beliefs and any bills, laws, or lawmakers should allow it to remain that i have those beliefs and others have their own. For example: IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), many people don’t believe in it and it is a hot political topic at times. Do those individuals who disagree with the process understand what it feels like to find out they are infertile? Possibly Not. Do any of those individuals understand what it feels like to have the dreams of a family potentially stripped from them? Possibly Not. Are those individuals harmed or effected by others partaking in IVF? No. I don’t believe in a lot of things and I wouldn’t take part in a lot of controversial acts but does that mean no one should be allowed to? No. Why should my PERSONAL beliefs, whether it is religiously, morally, or biologically reasoned affect the lives of every single individual in a country? They shouldn’t.
I feel better now. Thanks.
This is me. Thank you Julia-ya-ya-ya
102 days until Hawaii.
I have been talking lately, with people.
Basically it has recently occurred to me that i have NO IDEA where i am actually going to be next year at this time.
Things i do know:
Things i have no idea about:
See how there are more unknowns than knowns? See how a lot of the knowns depend on the unknowns? See how the unknowns seem much larger than the knowns?
OYYYY. Good thing i have a good handle on my life right now. I am so happy. I am feeling accomplished, successful, cared for, appreciated, and just plain happy!
It’s great! So many good things.
Peace&Love Folks. Happy Autumn Weather Days.
