Every religion has a theory of what they believe happens after death. As an atheist, many of my religious peers ask me “So what do YOU think happens after death?”. Well. I think that after a person dies, they automatically go into a never ending, dreamless sleep. Think about it; a person sleeps for approximatley 9 hours a night, yet it seems like no time passes between the time a person falls asleep, and the time that person awakes. I think that once a person passes away, it’s just like they’re asleep, but this time it’s forever, instead of 9 hours. After all, sleep is just a cousin of death. Right?
Its come to my attention that the link I put up with my “Sexuality” Post doesn’t work correctly. Sorry. If you click the link then go to the top right, you’ll see a tan poster type thing that says something along the lines of “oppostition to gay marriage”. Click it. THATS what I wanted to be seen. Again, sorry about that. That’s all for tonight. Goodbye :)
I just tried to “reblog” a list of questions my friend put up on her Tumblr, so I could have fun and answer them. It didn’t work. I just wasted 20 minutes on nothing. FAIL. Oh well.
Goodmorning internet :). I decided that as I enjoy my black coffee this Sunday morning, I’d share some thoughts I have regarding a specific topic. I think I’m going to try to do this type of this every Sunday. One of the main reasons I started this Tumblr, is because I want to be a columnist when I’m older. This is good practice! Anyways. Today’s topic: S.E.X….ualitly.
First off, let me state that I think sexuality isn’t a choice. How do I know? You can’t get me to love another guy, and you can’t get a gay guy to become straight. It’s just the way a person is BORN. Recently, California passed Proposition 8 which lifted the gay marriage ban. Good for them! :). Gays and lesbians aren’t hurting anybody, so why should WE hurt THEM? Although California lifted the gay ban, there are still 30 states with gay marriage bans.
This is AMERICA right? Where all men are created equal. The Declaration of Independence grants three specific rights to citizens of America. Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit Of Happiness. No where in there does it say “Unless you’re gay”. So lets all stop being so prejudice. Whether you admit it or not, if you oppose same sex marriage, you ARE prejudice. When you oppose same sex marriage, you’re basically saying “I don’t want these people to be happy. They shouldn’t marry who they love, and they shouldn’t have families”. Kind of awful isn’t it? I think so.
On facebook, I “am a fan of” Otep. Otep as a whole is a magnificent band, but what I am going to reference really quickly is the lead singer; Otep Shamaya. Otep is a lesbian, and she’s open about it. Recently she posted this website on Facebook: http://www.prosebeforehos.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/opposition-to-gay-marriage.jpg Why not take a look while you’re reading this?
That concludes Sunday’s Thought. I hope you enjoyed it, and more than anything, I hope it made you think. Think about your personal position on Same Sex Marriage, or perhaps even rethink your personal position. I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday. :) Thanks for reading!
Everyone has them. Mine are a little different though, in fact I don’t remember the last time I was truely frightened. I’ve been startled, but I don’t think thats quite the same. Enough of my random typing, here are my biggest fears.
- Being lied to/cheated on.- I have my reasons.
- Loosing a close family member.-To this day I have nightmares about my dad dying, and I wake up with tears in my eyes everytime.
- Drifting away from my closest friends.-I don’t have many friends whom I feel comfortable opening up to. But the thought of loosing the few that I AM comfortable with is scary in itself.
- Dying young.-This one’s self explanitory. No one wants to die young.
- Disapointing my family.-Every teenager does this, its normal. But I think I’ve done more than my fair share in upsetting my mother, just because we’re so different.
There you have it. My biggest fears. Many, if not all of them are universal fears (maybe?). Who knows. That’s all for tonight. Thanks for reading.
Just shuttup. Please. That is all.
Today was what my mother likes to call “Camp Ashead”. One of the few days during summer that I dislike. This day long event has taken place in our household for quite awhile now. I remember when me and my sister Whitney (who’s now 13) would enjoy the activities that our parents planned for us. Water balloons, s’mores, and all kinds of different crafts. Now, instead of participating, the two of us are in charge of organizing various activities for my littlest sister (Jayna, who’s 8 years old) and her friend. Between a moody mom and loud 3rd graders, the day can get a bit stressful. Thankfully I have Whitney to keep my company throughout the day. The “camp” technically isn’t over just yet. Around 2, Jayna’s friend left, and now I’m able to take a little break while Jayna’s out riding bikes with her friends. Tonight there will be s’more making and weenie (lawlz) roasting over a fire in our backyard. My mom and Jayna will probably sleep in the tent me and Whitney set up this morning if weather permits. I’ll be looking forward to crawling into my warm bed at night :). That’s all for now. Thanks for reading. I think I might like this whole “Tumblr” business.
For anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you I have rather strong opinions regarding most everything. In many situations, it’s put me in a position where I have to argue with another person to defend my point of view. I don’t go looking to argue with others, it just kind of follows me wherever I go. And I’m fine with that. Some people say that being opinionated isn’t a good thing, due to all the commotion it can start. I disagree. While it may cause arguments, it lets a persons ideas and thoughts be heard. Even if people don’t agree with what you’re saying, your opinions SHOULD be heard. I used to “go with the flow” of everyone else, often times trying to fit in with a group of people I wanted to be like. Around 8th grade I decided to put a stop to pretending, and start being myself. Ever since then, I’ve enjoyed life a lot more than I used to and I’ve found many friends with the same opinions and intrests as myself. If you’re still pretending to be someone you’re not, there’s still time to let yourself be heard for who you are. Don’t go through life agreeing with what everyone has to say. Stand up for what you believe in, even when others are challenging you.
