On my way to the dreaded library, (UGH!) I pass by an abortion clinic. I've passed by this place a couple of times, and always noticed people outside, but never really paid much attention.
I guess I'm just too glued to my BlackBerry and jammin' out to my tunes to notice my surroundings.
Yes, I text AND Facebook while driving. Sue me! I get enough flack about this from the BF!
Today, I actually noticed that they were holding signs, and they offered numbers for pregnant women who needed assistance, and things of that sort. But there were also signs that made these women feel bad, I'm sure. Such as "Women who abort usually regret".
Which may be true, but let the poor woman who's obviously in a dire situation realize this on her own.
This is a topic I've always been on the fence on.
I, myself, don't think I could EVER abort a child that I created. However, I know many people who have done this, two of the women being two of the closest to me, and I do not judge anyone who makes this decision.
I also am not a fan of abortion when it's just because, "oops the condom broke" or "omg I'm too young and can't afford a baby". My belief in that situation is, if you're grown enough to lay down and spread your legs, then you're grown enough to raise the outcome!
We are all entitled to our own opinions, right?
I know there are circumstances in which a woman was drugged and/or raped, those are more understandable. Either way, I do not judge. I just have my own belief.
I do however, give MAD props to the protesters. Some people hate them, honk at them, yell at them, but I have respect for people who have such a strong belief in something, (anything, not just abortion) that they will let it be known no matter the consequences.
Whew, now that I've gotten that off my chest, I can enjoy the rest of my half day off from work! ;)
P.S. I realize there are plenty of people who are going to disagree with me, and that's fine. It's expected, but this is my blog, and if you want to bash me, well don't do it here. I'm open to hearing your opinion, but don't hate me for mine.
Today's top 2 Tuesday is SONGS!
1. I'm Yours by Jason Mraz - this was officially dubbed my "happy song" when it came out. To this day, every time I hear it, it puts me in a good mood. :)
2. Benny & the Jets by Elton John - I HAVE to turn my radio up as loud as it'll go when this song comes on, seriously the best song EVER!
I've seriously sat at this stupid library waiting for like an hour to post today! :-/ I'm losing it guys, I need internet!!!
How's everyone doing? I feel so out of the loop!
1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?
British!! Or New Yawk ;) Anything but this God forsaken Texan accent I have. I literally TRY not to sound like a little cowgirl. I HATE it.
2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)
I have a hard enough time falling asleep in my own bed!
3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?
Yes I do, and yes I do. I use seat covers when available. ;)
4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?
That all depends, are we making out and whatnot or are we just allowed to talk and stuff?
If we're making out, I pick Patrick Dempsey, Woody Harrelson (don't judge me! the BF finds this disgusting) and/or Ryan Phillippe.
If we're talking and laughing, I pick Steve Carrel, Chelsea Handler and/or Zach Galifinakis. :)
5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?
We went to a bar, (which is a favorite of ours now), and I got tipsy on my signature drink - margaritas! ;)
The new job is going great (well, for the most part). I'm still planning on staying with my dad for a bit. I'm hoping to have my own place again by the beginning of the year. I need to save up a little because the deposit, first month's rent, electric deposit and all that bullshit will break me if I don't have some saved!
So I'm playing it smart, gosh my parents must be so proud! ;)
I am beyond excited. I seriously jumped up and down like a child in my bedroom yesterday and screamed like an idiot, pathetic!
I will be working as a medical assistant at an internal medicine practice. They are starting me out at very good pay, more than I expected to get with no experience. AND at six weeks, I get a raise if the doctor thinks I deserve it, which I so will.
Since today was my last day of unemployed freedom, I slept in until noon, and have done absolutely nothing. :) Since I know I'm going to have a terrible time sleeping tonight and especially getting up in the morning, I will be taking some sleeping aids. Ahhh, I love sleeping pills.
I've had this horrible pain in my right side/abdomen area, around where my appendix is located (yes, I know what I'm talking about, I'm practically a doctor now!) kidding!
I'm trying to ignore because even though I know I'm slowly dying on the inside from all of the toxins being released from my damaged appendix, I can't be stuck in the hospital on my 1st day of work, now can I? ;)
I am so pumped about the weekend! We have lots of fun things planned to do, but I'm not going to say it just yet - just in case I have nothing to write about this weekend, HA!
Okay, I better get off here for now, hope you guys are having a fabulous week. Love!
Last year on my birthday, I went to Montana with the BF and his mom for a wedding. While stopping for gas, I noticed this bottle of wine that was named "Little Black Dress" - the bottle also had an empty hanger and red stilettos on the front - TOO cute!
Anyway - I just had to have it, so his mom got it for me.
Fast forward to a year later - when moving out of my apartment, one night the BF decided to come over to help me pack, I made him dinner and wanted to finally bust open the bottle of wine. Well, my cheap ass corkscrew broke off IN the wine bottle! I was pissed.
This weekend, I brought the wine over here and the BF used his nice corkscrew that was obviously more than $2 to open it for us.
It is DELISH! Loving it. I've always loved wine. I know, it's an acquired taste, and not everyone likes it. I, however, can highly appreciate a nice glass of red or white!
Basically that's what my weekend has consisted of - lots of TV and wine. Plus, I've been nursing a killer headache for the past 3 days. This one is very uncomfortable - not even my migraine prescription meds are touching it!
OH, OH, OH - Chelsea Lately is on! One of my favorites, seriously how can you not just want to be best friends with this girl?!
Double excitement - she's hosting the VMA's tomorrow night. I've gotta watch this. First of all, I'm totally addicted to award shows, and I want to be this woman!
Have you guys read her books? She's hilarious. I know she can be raunchy for some people's taste, but not mine. I love how brutally honest she is, yet so incredibly clever. She doesn't give a fuck what people think about her, and it makes me love her that much more. ;)
Hope you guys are having an amazing weekend!
I've got an interview in a little over an hour (yay me!) so I've gotta make this short and sweet.
I'm getting very close to 100 followers and that makes me very excited. FYI - if you are a new follower, welcome and also please catch up on old blogs so you know why I haven't been updating as often.
If I get this job today, it's a full time position, I will be able to get my own place, AGAIN, and have internet access, thank GOD!
1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?
Sometimes, I have what they call "buyer's remorse" but then I feel all better once I wear it and see how fabulous it looks on me. ;)
2. How well do you know your neighbors?
I don't really. I don't socialize with random people.
3. What age are you looking forward to being?
I'm fine with 23 for now. I'm legal to do whatever I want, and still young enough to be considered sexy!
4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?
Not anymore, because now I have bills. When I was a kid, and all I got was birthday cards with money, hell yes I was excited!
5. What is your earliest childhood memory?
Holding my baby sister (who's 2 years younger) when her and my mom came home from the hospital. Awwwww! ;)
I've participated in many blog hops this Friday, and one new one that I've never done before for whatever reason -
This bitch is awesome, and if you decide to follow her, by God, you BETTER leave her skankalicious ass some comments! ;)
Hope you all have a kick ass weekend!
1. The pretty colors! I love the colors that the leaves change to, and when they all fall on the ground. It's just so peaceful and comforting to me.
2. The cute fall clothes! I'm a summer baby at heart, but I do have a niché for the comfy sweaters, hot boots, snug jeans, and pretty hats. :) (even though, I don't pull off a hat very well because of my fine hair, ugh!)
I know I haven't updated lately, I had a very busy weekend. I had the opportunity to see one of my best friend's little sisters get married. It was a lot of fun, and my legs are still sore from shakin' my ass at the reception. ;)
Last week, I had an interview, good news yes, but it's only a temporary position. I will know whether or not I got it tomorrow. If I did, it's a contract position, traveling to schools around the metroplex administering flu vaccines.
Since I have no income at the moment, this is better than nothing, but I am still on the search for something full time! If you pray, please keep me in your thoughts! :)
I'd have to say that my top 3 fave channels are Food Network, Discovery Health, and Game Show Network. These channels are my WEAKNESSES! It's sickening I tell ya. Anytime someone in my mad house turns on the TV, if it's on one of these 3, they know I was the last to watch the television.
During the day, I usually keep the TV on Food Network, which has Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Giada de Laurentiis and Barefoot Contessa. Just to name a few of my faves. I especially enjoy watching when they are making a meal that I would like to try or that looks scrumdiddlyumptious to me. Who are we kidding? I'll watch it even if it's something that sickens me, such as seafood, YUCK!
I do sometimes try out the recipes too. I'll get online and copy down the directions. They usually turn out pretty good. The BF always stands over my shoulder, and asks "Are you sure that's done all the way?" or "Are you doing that right?".
This boy doesn't even know how to boil water!!! I just tell him to shut up because he's going to end up eating whatever I make anyway. ;)
Late afternoon, early evening-ish is when the TV usually gets flipped over to the Game Show Network. I've always been a huge fan of The Newlywed Game, even when it was all old-school. It's even better now that Carnie Wilson hosts and the couples are closer to my age.
I always try and make the BF play along and answer the questions with me, to pretend like we are actually on the show. I guess it's not as fun for him as it is for me. Who'd have thought?! Who knows, maybe one day, if and when I ever get married, I can apply to be a contestant on there, and win a fabulous tropical vacation for myself! ;)
There's also a semi-new show called "Baggage" hosted by Jerry Springer. Which just goes to show that he's running out of things to do to make a little cash. So why not host a dating show on the game network? Everyone else is doing it!
Me and my little sister are totally addicted, and if we don't catch it on at the time, we DVR it. I recommend catching it yourself. ;)
Late at night, is when I watch Discovery Health. The shows absolutely amaze me. I'd have to say that my favorite one is probably "Mystery Diagnosis". It shows these people with odd symptoms, who've been going to all sorts of different specialists who can't figure out what's wrong with them. Once they are on the brink of death, a rare diagnosis comes out! It's quite interesting.
I also enjoy "Dr. G, Medical Examiner" where Dr. G does autopsies on people who have died suddenly. It's very graphic, but fascinating and "I'm Pregnant and..." where pregnant woman with strange lifestyles are featured.
Comedy Central and WeTV were the runners up.
I usually flip between "Bridezillas" (which I'm totally convinced that I'll be one of those one day, not because I'm a hateful bitch or anything, but because on MY day, I'm going to flip if things don't go MY way!) and "South Park".
Pathetic, I know. I hate to admit it, but I can't help but laugh my ass off at 4th grade cartoons who cuss each other out. The shenanigans they get themselves into are hilarious!
What are some of your guys' favorite channels or shows? What's your show that you absolutely can not miss?
