Life has been kicking me in the teeth all summer year. I'll come back and edit this post to elaborate on how shitty life is, but for now I need to get some sleep.


The Gist:

Fuck You, fucking college.

Fuck You, the sea of responsibilities I'm drowning in.

Fuck You, corrupt or just deeply stupid politicians.

And FUCK YOU, GLEE! >:[

Also, fuck you, upcoming jury duty. Icing on a shit cake.

I was in high school when 9/11 happened. I was early to class and the TV was on. It was playing the news. We witnessed the devastation in endless replay, the developments as more planes crashed, and the sheer emotion as our country's sense of community reached a significant high point. The rest of the day and many days after were spent talking about what happened and the ramifications.

Hopefully the news today has given many people some closure.

This past Saturday, I attended a Jasam fan event with my sister in Los Angeles. That's a Q&A and photos with Steve Burton (who plays Jason Morgan) and Kelly Monaco (who plays Sam McCall) of the soap opera General Hospital. It was fun. ...They're so much shorter in real life. :D

Mini-Rant: Politics = Depressing. Politics will suck the idealism out of anyone. The reality of the amount of control the greedy top 10% have over the rest of us just never lets up, does it?

Lemon Raspberry Meringue Pie from Fresh&Easy is yummy. Seriously!

Grr. Argh. Summer classes before transferring to the CSU. So tedious.

Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on Glee, always cheers me up. He's so hilarious and awesome in all of his interviews.

So, I created a Kurt Hummel shippers fan community - [livejournal.com profile] kurtships!

[ETA: THIS WAS IMPORTED FROM LIVEJOURNAL AND I HAVE SINCE CREATED A MIRROR COMMUNITY ON DREAMWIDTH - [community profile] kurtships!]



Here's something to turn all you not-yet-Chris-Colfer-fans into fans:

Awesome Chris Colfer Interview on Jimmy Fallon - HERE
Chris Shows His Sai Sword Skills - HERE
Kurt Does Single Ladies - HERE
Kurt Duets with Mercedes on 4 Minutes (video's reversed/flipped, though) - HERE

He deserves the Emmy!!! The above doesn't even include the drama.

If you're not already watching this show, give it a chance. <3

Health Care

It's sad. I feel like the US is a laughingstock in other countries when it comes to health care.

People, please - stop listening to the health insurance industry's propaganda.

When they claim a public option will "put a bureaucrat between you and your doctor," they neglect to consider that currently you have CEOs and all the health insurance industry shareholders (who make a higher profit by denying your claims) between you and your doctor.

Don't be fooled by empty promises to reform on their own (they've been making these promises for decades and never follow through); their goal is to monopolize the market.

Public all the way!!!

Private will hungrily devour your premiums and deductibles and deny you your desperately needed, potentially life-saving coverage.

Seriously.

Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin

What if things were switched around?..... )

THE FACTS:

Educational Background:

Barack Obama:
Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in International Relations.
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Joseph Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)

vs.

John McCain:
United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

Sarah Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
University of Idaho - 2 semesters -journalism
Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in the land as well as our standing in the world.

You make the call.

P.S. Vote NO on Prop. 8 in California - Stop Discrimination!
