I had to title my first post as such, the annoying internet meme seen on the likes such as cracked.com and 4chan (I think?). This is a post that probably won’t been seen by much of (anyone?) but whatever. During my time in New York City I have found that I need to write, and writing in my cloth-covered blue, flower printed notebook that contains directions to my destinations in New York, just isn’t going to cut it. During my time in New York (oh! I forgot to mention, I’m from Connecticut and like some people in Connecticut, I hate it there. I have hated it there since I was about 14 years old and possibly 7 years old). I have an internship in upper-side Manhattan and due to my own paranoid mentality, I won’t disclose where, just that I am doing a women’s health related internship! And, back to the story, I have stumbled upon a-many articles, blog posts and the likes regarding abortion, medicine, women, women’s health, and the like that I have been commenting to and expressing my rage of their viewpoint and attempting to show mine. Like, I am a feminist but I was raised Seven-Day Adventist: Reform Movement so I still have some pretty conservative views, but even the semi-conservative party would label me a raging liberal. I dunno. I guess I will also talk about my own views of the world, people, the fact that my hands are freezing and despite it being 100+ Fahrenheit outside, I’m freezing my ass off in the office and regretting not bringing a cover up from home. But, as I said, I have found that unfulfilling. I intend to express my views here if only for myself, with such views/obsessions/semi-hates as:

–         Abortion

–         Feminism

–         Anime

–         Chris Corner

–         Fashion that isn’t Louis Vuitton or Chanel (Am I the only one who thinks their style is bordering on…dare I say, tacky? But, that’s just me and what do I know right?)

–         Consumerism

–         Other isms

–         My time at Hampshire College (oh what fun that will be)

–         Sarah Palin

–         So-called “Pro-Life” feminism

–         Sugary-Foods

–         Fatty-Foods

–         Children

–         Babies

–         My own hopes and dreams

–         My newfound optimism (and my hopes that I will stay optimistic, although in these days, it is starting to be hard)

–         BP spill

–         President Obama

–         Health Care

–         Universal Health Care

–         Sushi

–         Salmon

–         Too-much Testosterone?!

–         Hearts

–         Hearts and Women

–         Science and why it’s awesome

–         Working in front of a computer

–         My new-found desire to start running

–         Bioshock

–         X-Box 360

–         Video Games

–         My own contradictions

–         Minimism

–         Art

–         Many, many other things

So, this being my first post I suppose I can talk a bit about myself and what else can be expected. Like all humans I will have outbursts of something that I find emotionally compelling and I’ll post it/talk about it here. For now, I welcome all comments. And uh, before I start talking about my own hopes for this blog, this is foremost, a blog for me, for me to reflect on and ponder and see what my own life was like. Also, I am turning 21 in about 5 weeks (OMG!) and I am female. But please note that you don’t have to be a female to be a feminist (and don’t say male feminist because then you are missing the point, I can’t tell you how many times I heard that and face-palmed).

I am also sort-of coming to terms with my won (surprise) loyalty with the United States, and might just talk about that sometimes because damnit, so many people around me, and I’ll talk about this when I talk about Hampshire College, talk shit about the United States and then talk about our global responsibility and I just want to scream. ANYWAY! I have to get to work, so, some articles for everyone’s enjoyment:
