Deep.

Tonight I decided to look through my old messages on myspace and all of my old wall posts and such. I can’t even believe how much my life has changed in the past four or five years. I was reading my messages with my boyfriend from 8th grade, Brad, and I honestly couldn’t stop laughing. All of the messages were like “I love you so much, I want to marry you someday” and then we’d break up and it’d be like “I hate you” then, magically, go back to “I love you” again. I remember back then I really thought we were meant to be but now, looking back, we were only like thirteen years old. I still know Brad, actually, we’ve had an interesting past but now I can walk by him and not feel anything. These messages made me think a lot because in eighth grade I didn’t know I would date a guy named Jon for five months or a guy named Ethan for eight. I didn’t even know who Ethan was. Crazy, right? That all makes me hopeful for college next year because who know who I’ll meet? Maybe my next boyfriend really will be “the one” that I thought Brad was. Who knows? The future is wide open, my book isn’t even half way over. (:

Merry Ex-mas.

Honestly, if your name is Ethan, stop reading this now. I’m serious; close out of it and just move on with your life, though I’m not sure why you’re still checking in on me anyways. Normally I wouldn’t care if you read my posts, I have nothing to hide, but this is one of those days I’ve experienced many times before. In the past it’s been about different guys, other exes, and a similar, yet different situation. I’ve gone through it with Brad, Jon, even Chris… so now it’s your turn.

Issues and Beliefs- Pt. 1

If you don’t pay much attention to politics, bare with me and read this whole post. Odds are you’ll be voting in the next few years (maybe even this year) so you might as well hear someone’s opinion. Political shows are a little dull sometimes and you, as teenagers, have better things to do- trust me I feel the same way most of the time. The thing is, I love politics. I love being informed and making my own decisions- it feels good. Anyways, I promise not to try to sway you. You, as part of America’s (or the world’s) youth are our future doctors, lawyers, teachers, mothers, fathers, and even politicians. So, seriously, read this post- there are some things you should know about the politics of this country in 2012. Things that I never dreamed would suddenly become relevant again but, somehow, here they are. And, it’s cool to have your own opinions, and to share them! I would actually love to hear what you think but don’t knock my views or be rude about it. Thanks (:

Thinking of the Future…

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do with my life. Do I want to pursue writing as a career? Maybe I’d like to try modeling? Or Psychology? Teaching? I’m struggling with what my calling in life is- what I’m good at. It’s difficult to figure out what would be best to create the life I want for myself and for my future family. I’m worried about the future, honestly. I want a decent amount of money, a nice house, happy kids, and maybe even a strong marriage. I want the “American Dream.” Is that so crazy? I worry a lot about the future of this country, as well as the world. It’s not just about me. So much has changed since my parents were kids. I feel like the world is only getting worse as we go. We’re in debt, technology is taking over, kids are growing up so much faster these days. Not to mention crime rates, wars, the possiblility of nuclear bombs being used, and terrorist threats. I don’t want my kids to grow up in an age even more based on material possesions than we are today. I want them to grow up in a world where they can ride their bikes down the street and play… just be KIDS.

I’m a worrier so maybe that’s what all of this is but, I have to tell you, all of this worrying is EXHAUSTING. I’m sick of people arguing over whether or not we use birth control or allow women the option to an abortion or if we should allow gay marriage. There are bigger issues than you forcing your ideals down people’s throats. There are bigger issues than whether or not two people in love can be married just because YOU think it’s wrong. Honestly, if you aren’t gay, you don’t have to get married to someone of the same sex; if you don’t believe in birth control, don’t use it; if you don’t want an abortion, don’t get one. DON’T INFRINGE ON OTHERS. They have the right to get married to who they want, have kids when they want, and get an abortion if that’s what they think is right in their situation. The world we live in is more worried about what their neighbor is doing than what’s right for THEM to do.
