everyone is soooooo kewl with their hungover statuses and slutty pictures. last night was interesting…. accompanied by close-to-naked pictures. OH i wonder what you were doing last night you whore. JUST KIDDING i don’t have to wonder…you just want everyone to know you were getting drunk and being a slut last night. oh $00000 MUCH R3$P3C+. the loss of innocence i have witnessed over the years is just fucking disappointing.
skipping two social gatherings and going to another one just to eat and leave….so i can work on college apps. it’s times like these when i wonder if i’m like an all-around failure. i’m barely getting anywhere with my apps, and yet, i spend like all my weekends working on them, skipping social stuff. obviously my priorities are college apps, i get that; but shouldn’t i actually be benefiting from working so hard? shouldn’t they be sounding good by now? WHY AREN’T THEY. ah.
so i recently saw a pic that had a checklist of republican, democrat, and pissed off, with the check mark next to pissed off. pissed off = me. who gives a fuck what party you’re a part of? for the most part, neither one will share all of your opinions. If we didn’t have these stupid party politics going on, people would be evaluating candidates not based on party, but based on actual policies. our nation has come to blindly following the most popular candidate of one’s own political affiliation, which eliminates that person’s need to actually take a step back and take into consideration the ideals of that candidate. it’s just fucking embarrassing that people could support people like sarah palin, michele bachmann, rick perry, or fucking herman cain. the things they say are all just bullshit and if the people of our country actually knew anything, they would realize that. how about instead of attacking barack obama’s race or questioning where he was born, why can’t the people just take into consideration what his plans are or what he has put into action so far? like why would anything but political topics matter when one is about to vote to place someone in government? and yes, i am saying that civil rights issues such as abortion and gay marriage are NOT political topics and have no business being discussed or taken away by government. they are by no means acceptable parts of one’s political agenda. with that said, more than half of the candidates today simply have no political agenda. people are too caught up in party propaganda and they simply flock to the candidate who screams the loudest about getting rid of immigrants or gay people or whatever. so maybe this turned into a rant against republicans….but that doesn’t mean democrats aren’t part of party politics too. and plus, i’m still pissed off. very much so. i want to make a speech to americans and like basically scream at them about how fucking mindless they are being. george washington, our best president of all time, warned us against participating in party politics and he was right; our nation has become an inefficient, ill-informed, ignorant jungle full of wild animals. we really need to have a unitarian form of government. maybe i’ll move.
“Folks, this is a crucial time in the fight for corporate civil rights. Just look at the hateful signs at Occupy Wall Street. “Corporations are not people.” Wow. I thought we were past the point in this country where some people aren’t “people” just because they have different color skin, or a different religion, or were born in a lawyer’s office, only exist on paper, have no soul and can never die.”—The Colbert Report (via thelifetimenetwork)
This is basically my favorite part of one of my favorite poems; it pretty much sums up everything I feel about war. To die for one’s country may seem honorable, but really it is the most brutal, most gruesome way to die. And for what? For our country? Well forgive me if this sounds treasonous in any way, but our country doesn’t seem to have made the best decisions in terms of war, so…fuck that.
today, while volunteering at the hospital, a lady came up to me and starting speaking spanish. i literally jumped up and got so excited to talk to her because i could actually speak spanish with her and see if i could properly communicate. it was basically amazing and i’m really proud of myself and i realized that i freaking love spanish. fuck ingles yo.
