As a millennial from a southern state, voting on certain issues has caused me to get into heated debates. One of the most prevalent issues that makes me lose my cool quickly is immigration reform. I’ve seen too many families destroyed because of outdated rules. I’ve also seen the prejudice attached to the backs of anyone whose family came from the wrong side of the border. The red parts of my hometown don’t agree with me as well as the rest of my state. President Obama is trying to push through the refusal to discuss prospective citizens and pass bills. However the people we as a country elected to be members of Congress are putting up roadblock after roadblock. Why do we keep electing these men who don’t even want to do their jobs? Are we even voting on the issues that plague America? By the looks of this roster of Congressmen, I think not.
It could possibly be the image of the Congressman. As long as they put off the perception that they are willing to work, they’re a shoe in. Seems like perception is all we as a country receive anymore. As I continue to grow up, I’ll continue to think before I cast my vote. Maybe my vote one day will bring a family back together.
The strength it takes for me to answer these questions without either a scowl or with one sentence shows how much I've grown. But there are too many people asking me the same questions in the most life draining cycle ever. So I've comprised a cute list with answers they hopefully will remember for years to come. Feel free to take these answers for your own chorus of busy bodies in your life if the answers apply to you.
A prominent memory from my adolescence was debating with boys who had it worse in life. The variables would change weekly but the point remained: someone has to lose and I'd like to know who it is. There used to be a sense of pride that would swell up whenever I would reason my opponent into submission. But after living through some colorful romantic experiences, I started wondering how that mindset molded my outlook on relationships and love.
I'm a petty, neurotic and indecisive woman who likes a variety of things you probably don't care about. Why? Because I'm attractive enough for you to fantasize about but not attractive enough to make you want to fight for your honor. I'm also marginally intelligent but let's be real, you saw my photo and decided to ignore anything I may have typed here.
I'm not about to assume y'all know me so I'll just tell you what today is. Today is my birthday. As the title gives away, yes I am 24. I've made a lot of decisions, met a lot of people and spent a lot of time learning about this here life I have. Now it's time to sit down at this desk and give you all some golden nuggets I've picked up on the way.
Yes, some of the great things we do positively effect how we view ourselves. But aren't we tired of trying to be holier-than-thou all the time? It must get lonely on top of that throne. From there, everyone looks like heathens who are unworthy of the king's presence. They need insert-personal-moral-compass-here to be around him. If you're rolling your eyes at the thought of it, congratulations, you have vices and are relatable.
Whether it's my family members, coworkers or my beautician, everyone wants to know what's going on with my plans. Where are my offspring and husband?! It doesn't matter if I have ideas about other aspects of my life.
For the majority of my life, someone has tried to curb my adoration for curse words. Every reason from every person has fallen under these statements:
If I get too busy, overwhelmed or procrastinate too hard, you will not see me for weeks. I retreat and regroup. I go ghost.
