You know what? I don't mind political conservatives. I'm pretty conservatives on some points, mainly the economy. But I really hate it when the God-fearing conservative republicans try to push church back into our government.
There is a new bill that is aiming to illegalize abortion in Indiana. It states that life would "start at conception". Who is to say WHEN life starts? I understand if you don't want to have an abortion, but that shouldn't limit the rights of others. That's like saying you don't want to eat ketchup on your hamburger, so it shouldn't be offered at all. Someone should try to pass that bill. Maybe I'll go call my congressman about that. BAN KETCHUP!
And secondly, apparently people want license plates that say "In God We Trust". I'm sorry, but it seems as though now more than ever, people want to show off just how religious they are. Like..."ooh look at me, I pray everyday and I go to church." You know, good for them. If that is what works for them, more power to them. But you don't see me flaunting the fact that I don't believe in God. What would the lawmakers say if I wanted to petition to have license plates that say "I Don't Believe In God". I should try that one, too.
Getting back on topic. This aim to illegalize abortion really pisses me off. It wouldn't even allow abortion if it dealt with rape. RAPE! It would only be allowed if it posed a threat to the woman or whatever. Ridiculous. I don't ever plan on getting an abortion, but I don't feel it's a right we should take away from women. Doing that would have the same effect as prohibition did. MOONSHINE ABORTIONS! ONLY $5!
Now I seriously can't wait until Saturday. Everybody is going to be there Saturday night and it's going to be a blast! I have such an awesome core group of friends that I never thought I would find in a million years. I love them all to pieces. I don't think I've ever had friends as good as these ones. Love them. Even if they piss me off (*ahem* Erik) I still love them. I can't imagine not being friends with them. LOVE THEM!
Good times. Also, my dad and I built a little desk shelve for my desk at the house. It's so heavy though! I have no idea how I'm going to carry it up 2 flights of stairs. Oy. I'll probably just give up and have it sitting in my trunk forever lol. Oh my. It will most definitely be a trick.
And...I got a call from the ISU bookstore and my schedule is all figured out. YAY I HAVE A JOB! And I have a phone interview tomorrow for some phone survey thing for ISU so if that is in the evening, maybe I can have two jobs. I'll be raking in the dough. But I'm going to be so incredibly busy this semester it isn't even funny. I'm taking 17 credits (not too bad) but 11 of those credits are going to be PURE HELL (statistics, speech com, drawing studio). Oy. And I have 2 positions in the house (corresponding secretary, assistant philanthropy chair), I'm volunteering for the Design College Career Days w/ Nancy, AND I'll be working. I'm not going to have any time for those lovely friends of mine :(
Oh well. Tomorrow I have to go sell back some of my brother's book to IUPUI. I doubt they'll even take them back since he didn't take the classes at IUPUI...what an idiot. So we'll see. I don't really want to do it, haha. Taking 5 books back and have them be like "Uh...you're not going to get anything for these books" Hahaha. Oh well. Maybe I'll just tell him I forgot.
And TOMORROW I have to get my oil changed, tires rotated and alignment fixed (from me sliding into a curb, ouch!). And I have to pack up ALL of my stuff. It's going to be a good time for sure.
Anyways, off to the pharmacy now with the madre to get a prescription. Good times.
So...my brother is in LONDON right now. How unfair is that? If I had the money I would have been on a plane right now going to visit him, but no, I'm broke. Oh well. He said he's going to send me a postcard, haha. I'm actually really excited about that. I hope he looks for curry Pringles, too! Yum.
Okay. Only 5 days until Saturday!...and Ames! WOO! I get to see Amanda (who is in Cancun right now, lucky bitch!) and possibly Miller if we're not too tired. We'll see. He's having a small get together Saturday night so we'll see. Gah, I miss everyone so much! It's amazing. I don't think I'll be coming back to Carmel until summer break then, eithe. So excited about that! Because I think Amanda and I are planning a neat little roadtrip, haha. To South Dakota! Oh yeah. So I'll probably just go with her to Cedar Rapids rather than drive all the way home then all the way back. Good times, good times.
This is possibly my most interesting post ever. Don't you think? Haha. Oh yeah *yawn*
So last night I watched "Cinderella". Gah, I love that movie! Makes me wish my life would end up like that. Sheesh. Stupid Cinderella gets everything.
Oh, and here is a good video my friend Jon (no, not JON) showed me last night. Oh man, it's actually pretty cool.
