Let’s Fight

My keys are hot and so is my mind. I had to take a small break for the holdiays, I know I failed at NANOWRIMO, and that’s okay. Blogmas will work out because I love Christmas and can’t wait for that.

Now, while I was away, the F.C.C. wants to get rid of net neutrality. Let’s discuss this a bit. Are you a parent, a student, or anyone who enjoys the free reign that our internet currently give us? I am very blessed, and if you’re able to read this, you are too. Now imagine that you didn’t have that free reign and that you had to pay to go on social media or had to pay to email your teachers/professors. Is that a world you want to live in? Not I. I can’t see this being successful.

Don’t get me wrong, in some ways it may be. Without being able to or wanting to pay for the ability to access certain applications, we might actually have a disconnected world, like people have been begging for. People will indeed have to put their phones down if its not ringing constantly, due to messages or anything else.

Even with that being a possible positive, there may be far more negative that outweighs it, Some people make money creating content, stores through the web, that can hurt the economy and we could put more people in our country at risk for not being able to make a living for themselves.

We have until December 14th until the F.C.C. makes their votes against Title 2 that makes it so we can access everything. Without it we are looking at an extra $100 or so a month for addons, including news stations, social media, music, messaging, gaming, and other things we currently take for granted that we don’t realize, and we don’t want people to realize it when it is gone.

So the question: What can you, the American people, do?

The F.C.C. has chosen to ignore the voice of the American people, so now is the time to bear what you have.

On December 7th, all across the country, people are gathering to be able to fight against this with peaceful protests outside of Verizon stores.

Lets fight a good fight, guys.

Thankful: November 15th

Today, I am thankful for the nature. Outdoors are so important, and such a great, amazing thing to me. We live in a beautiful world that is taken for granted, and I think everyone needs more outside time. It helps with depression, calms people down. Best memories are made when people are outdoors.

One of my best memories is sitting outside, around a bonfire with a martini or some other type of drink. Bonfires are maybe one of my favorite things ever.

I feel like the biggest issue with outside is that in the summer, there’s sun, and the sun can burn and blister your skin. However, with enough protection for your skin, I think it’s a great thing to go out and learn something. Learn to pitch a tent, fish, something.

Thankful Posts November 13th and 14th

November 13th: I am thankful for electricity today. If it wasn’t for electric, my mother-in-law wouldn’t be able to breathe, and I wouldn’t be able to play games to escape from reality sometimes. It also helps to entertain my son when I need that 5 minutes to clean, cook, or do homework. Honestly, if we didn’t have electric we would probably find different ways to entertain ourselves and our children, but with this day and age and only minutes at a time, electric is the real MVP here.

 

November 14th: I am thankful for games. Honestly. I am not a violent person, and usually I am calm and level headed. If not, however, I do enjoy picking up the occasional game so that I can get anger/anxiety or even depression I may be feeling out a bit, so that I can go back to thinking well.

 

I’m sorry for not letting you guys know, but I will be either writing something very simple or not writing at all on the weekends. I am deciding to take weekends for my family, unless there’s something huge.

Thankful: November 10th

I am thankful today for food. Rather, the ability to buy and prepare healthy foods.

I know that there’s a lot of places that are actual food deserts, and the loss of honey bees doesn’t help, because now there might be a possible drop in food production in the future. (don’t roast me if there is and I don’t know. I don’t follow that type of thing unless its right there in my face or something. I tend not to find trouble unless it comes to me.) This all being said, I am very thankful that we currently have the ability to purchase food that is nutritious for us and our bodies.

Thankful: November 9th

Today, I am thankful for jobs, which gives my husband and one day I, the ability to provide for our family. If it wasn’t for having a job, my husband wouldn’t be able to provide for us while I go to school. Don’t get me wrong, I have had a job, several of them, which is why to my husband, it’s kind of my turn to succeed in school and be able to get a degree so I might be able to bring in an income. Granted, its only going to be childhood education, teaching preschoolers, at $11 an hour for even 4 hours a day for 4 days a week equals out to about almost $200 weekly. At least here I will be able to make sure we can meet all of our bills, will must husband also bringing this in. I want us to be able to be comfortable, if anything. So yes, thankful for jobs.

Thankful Post: November 8th

I am thankful for colors we get to have. Think about it, in a way, there’s thousands and thousands of colors we, the people of Earth, get to have. How amazing is that? I feel like we all use black and white so much, that we forget about all the other colors we have at our finger tips are. The world might be a better place if we gave everyone their own paint brushes and told them to paint to their hearts desire. Colors can make people the most passionate, loving creatures that they truly are.

I for one absolutely love colors, mainly pinks, purples, and blues, but we are unable to pain our apartment because of laws or rules, I guess the law of the complex or whatever, which I think is dumb considering we should have every right to paint and they can just paint white over that. Then again, now thinking about that, I can imagine it looking like someone’s fingernails after the 100 nail polish coat challenge.

Thankful posts 5th, 6th, and 7th

On to the next few days and I promise we are caught up. Thank you for being patient.

November 5th: I am thankful for God. Though I have a recent relationship with God, and still trying to figure all of that out, I am thankful that I have been shown mercy. The mercy I am talking about is, even though I am still struggling in a lot of ways, I am struggling a lot less, sad a lot less, and quite frankly, I have put the cat claws away and stopped being irrational and backstabby. This is huge for me since I am known to be that way as a defense mechanism with having a child young-ish and moving and being homeless and all that other stuff. It’s nice to see that I have been able to cope differently and pray when I need it. God has given me all this grace and mercy to be able to grow, and that’s a huge thing.

 

November 6th: I am thankful for my mother in law. Yup, this may be the only time you ever hear this, but I love my mother-in-law. She has helped me when it comes to growing, and how I react to certain things. Not a lot of people can sit there and talk highly of their mother-in-law, or how amazingly they raised their son, but I think mine did awesome. There’s also that I live with her, and when you live with someone, you become used to who they are and what they stand for.

 

November 7th: Woohoo, finally on the right day. I am thankful for the ability to go to school. Not a whole lot of mothers have this opportunity, and not a lot of people in general do, so the fact I am raising a child and have the ability to attend school with him going to school, and my lowest grade is only an 80, with things not totally being put in, this shows that this is a good thing and that school will be worth it in the long run.
