new york

I know we just met, but I might be devastatingly in love with you. No town or city has made me this happy, this fast.
I have always felt small town and always assumed I would hate you, but you feel.... Comfortable, just right like my big gray cotton sweatshirt. I feel simultaneously alive and happy and home and yet on vacation and intimidated with you.
I want to impress you and make you fall in love with me too.

I wonder what this means for the future!

it's the small things in life

This is the view from my apartment stairs sometimes.

no big deal.

Dresses that I want

Never mind that i have hundreds racked up on my credit card right now..

[unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, this is sold out in my size]

[this one is SO cute on. Damn dress, why you gotta be $100?]

dis one is gonna sell out before i get a chance to ponder it. :/

Barack Obama

Obama's ad was very well done. My heart swells up when I watch him. I believe him, even though my family (although supporters) constantly remind me that he's a politician and all politicians are big talk. I'm scared he'll be just talk but what I'm far more scared of is that our nation won't get the chance to see if he walks the walk.

Come this Tuesday I am going to anxiously sit myself in front of the television and hopefully watch history be made (after voting of course). I am so excited yet so terrified at the same time. I remember all the way back in August of 2007 I watched Obama in person and knew he was the candidate for me. I was so excited that the upcoming election would finally mean I was of age to vote. The election seemed like forever away...

Yet here it is. I am ready. I hope the nation is finally ready. He gives me hope, which is no easy task and I'm not letting go of that.

Writer's Block: Sarah Palin?

Is Sarah Palin a shrewd choice for the Republican Party, or is she a liability?

A liability for the republican party and an A+ choice for the democrats! Seriously, I lol at McCain picking Palin.
Let's discuss some interesting things, shall we? A brief run down on what's in the news/known about Ms. Sarah Palin lately.

1. McCain met her a total of 2 times, including when he asked her to be V.P.
2. Her daughter is 17 & 5 mos. pregnant. This shouldn't matter, and it doesn't, except Palin firmly supports abstinence only legislation. And her own daughter doesn't practice abstinence. Why does Palin think its okay to not educate teenagers? All the teenagers that get knocked up may not have the supportive & financially stable family that Bristol Palin does. It shows a definite flaw.
3. Palin's husband was a member of the Alaska Independence Party... A party that is interested in Alaska seceding from the united states. Uh, what?
4. Palin supports all anti-gay marriage legislation.
5. Palin supports drilling for oil in Alaska. THATS YOUR OWN HOMELAND. WHAT ARE YOU DOING.
6. Palin thinks global warming is not caused by humans. Enough said. What kind of ignorance is needed nowadays for people to still believe that we are not profoundly harming our environment?
7. Palin is strictly anti abortion, even in cases of rape and incest. That's rare, even for the majority of pro-lifers. How could you tell a daughter raped by her father that she must have that baby? Blah. Bad.

and finally, something funny that has nothing to do with the election but just for kicks:
At age 24 Sarah Palin eloped with her husband and 8 months later gave birth. Shotgun wedding?

Anyways, I think McCain's choice demonstrates his lack of logic and rash decision making - something we do NOT need in a president. She's a terrible choice, to the point of hilarity.
What's NOT hilarious is that if the same fucking idiots that elected Bush for the 2nd time somehow elect McCain and he very well might keel over in office and we are left with PALIN AS OUR PRESIDENT?
Well.. No. I dont even want to think about that.
I really cannot even understand how any American is still socially conservative with regards to politics. I can't fathom it.

oh yea

oh yeah, cinco de mayo..
If Sean and I had stayed together.... It would have been our two year.

It is weird how time changes everything. Everything.
A lot has been said about how to prevent rape.
Women should learn self-defense. Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark. Women shouldn't have long hair and women shouldn't wear short skirts. Women shouldn't leave drinks unattended. Fuck, they shouldn't dare to get drunk at all.

instead of that bullshit, how about:

if a woman is drunk, don't rape her.
if a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her.
if a woman is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her.
if a woman is wearing a short skirt, don't rape her.
if a woman is jogging in a park at 5 am, don't rape her.
if a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her.
if a woman is in a coma, don't rape her.
if a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don't rape her.
if a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her.

if a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her.
if your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her.
if your step-daughter is watching tv, don't rape her.
if you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her.
if your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and that he's not your friend.

if your "friend" tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
if your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs and it's your turn, don't rape her, call the police and tell the guy he's a rapist.

tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, sons of friends it's not okay to rape someone.

don't tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape.
don't imply that she could have avoided it if she'd only done/not done x.
don't imply that it's in any way her fault.
don't let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he "got some" with the drunk girl.
don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions. You can, too, help yourself.

If you agree, repost it. It's that important.
