Coming to an end (or growing up)|
After 5+ years of having this blog, I am sad to say that the time has come to end it. As I've entered into the "professional" world of grad school, I realize the importance of being careful about what I write. While I still love to write about my personal life, I feel I can no longer do this on such a public forum. This blog has merged into some hybrid space for both my personal and academic life, and sadly, the two cannot coexist on the same forum any longer.
That being said, I plan on starting a blog for my academic musings - stuff about culture and media etc. I won't be...
Racism on the Internet
So there's a short video clip on YouTube about Darfur. Regardless of how you politically align yourself on this issue is a moot point. What absolutely blew me away was the amount of hate-filled, racist, ignorant comments that people left (loosely in regards to the video). Call me completely naive, but the racist and hateful comments I was reading seriously made me feel like I was living in the pre-civil rights era. I know racism exists in this country, but the overt comments of pure hatred towards black people in this country absolutely floored me. As if African-Americans are the same as...
I ran my first official 4-miler today and I feel great! I didn't have to stop to walk, I maintained my pace and finished 20 seconds under my goal - oh yea! Four down...9.1 to go. Please, please, support me and the cause if you can! No amount is too small (or big!). I am NOT a runner and I am NOT a morning person and I'm waking up at 6 a.m. on a Saturday to go run - but if you think running a marthon is tough - try chemo! I'm loving this - I feel so good about myself afterwards and the Team is a bunch of really awesome people!
Speaking of team -...
I want a man
You taught me precious secrets of a truth, witholding nothing You came out in front and I was hiding.
I've been thinking about what my mom told me tonight - about she and my dad laying in bed holding each other and crying listening to a beautiful song while my mom was literally battling for her life. Everytime I re-play her comment in my mind (see previous entry) I start to cry. I was in bed just now, and I just started to cry. It's beautiful - the love my parents have for each other absolutely blows me away.
In a world in which half of all marriages end in divorce, I'm a part...
