It has become apparent that I have “Groupies”. People that follow me around, no matter where I go. People who will, lets say, sit my my homeroom for 15 minutes, JUST BECAUSE I’M THERE. And I don’t even say a word. I sit and listen to my I-Pod, sipping my black coffee. I BARELY even talk to these people; I literally know NOTHING about the people who follow me around. They aren’t my friends, I don’t like them, and I wish they’d stop following me. Sorry. But you guys should hop off my jock. TANKZZ.
Abortion is one of the most controversial topics these days. The topic flys past a political level, passes a religious, and hits a personal level. Pro-Lifers (is that correct?) are against abortion. They believe that the moment the egg is fertilized the government must protect the child. Although abortion is regarded as a woman’s right, they see it as murder. Pro-Choicers (again, not sure if that’s right or not…) think the opposite. They see abortion as the mothers choice, and the government of the state has no right to interfere. I understand this is a “touchy” subject, and one that I really shouldn’t be involved in, but…oh well.
I am Pro-Choice. I don’t believe the government should interfere with personal issues within the family. Often times abortion is the best option; not only for the mother, but also for the child. Often times, the mother isn’t ready to have a child. Emotionally, and financially. Standing in the kid’s shoes: lets pretend that this mother didn’t have an abortion, and decided to keep the baby. The kid would MOST likely grow up in not the greatest home. The dad probably would have left by now, money would be exceedingly tight ect ect.
Another option is adoption. This, (I think), is better for the child instead of being kept at home. But still, this poses problems for the kid! So again (WOW I ALMOST LOST THIS WHOLE THING JUST NOW…) lets pretend: the same mother descirbed above goes through with child birth, but this time, puts the kid up for adoption. When is the right time to tell a kid he/she is adpoted? At what age? I DON’T KNOW! At any age finding out you’re adopted is going to be extremly emotional, most likely in a negative way.
For those emotional reasons, I am Pro-Choice. Politically, I think the government has NO RIGHT to interfere with issues that should be kept within the family. Abortion is a woman’s right, if she isn’t ready to give birth to a child, she should have the choice of whether or not to keep the baby. I’ve heard horrifying stories of pregnant woman repeatedly throwing themselves down flights of stairs, NEARLY KILLING HERSELF, because she didn’t want to be pregnant. During the first trimester, there are no specialized cells, therefore, no nerve cells, therefore no pain is afflicted upon the fetus during abortion (or embryo depending on how early an abortion takes place). Why make the child suffer through an emotionally painful life at home, and throughout their adulthood? I don’t know. “If abortion is murder, then masturbation is genocide.” I’m in no way trying to offend anyone else’s opinions, I’m just stating my own. I honestly don’t care whether or not you agree with me…sorry. Feel free to tell me how you feel though! Thanks for reading. =]
Sorry for the late post, last Sunday I wasn’t feeling very motivated. My aunt gave me a suggestion for a Sunday Thought, so let’s get right into it! As of now, patients with a terminal illness aren’t allowed to end their lives prematurely. Personally, I think that if a person is in so much pain, and has an illness that will eventually end their life, that person should be entitled to the choice to continue living, or end their lives painlessly. Of course, certain circumstances would apply to make this choice valid… Is there hope for a cure? How much pain is this person in? What’s the age of this person? How long until the illness naturally ends the patient’s life, and how painful will this death be? The list continues on with similar questions. If the person is going to die a painful death, due to a illness, I think that the patient should be able to choose to end their life painlessly. Sorry for the poor wording in this post, I’ve found it’s kind of a tricky topic to write about. I can’t really put down how I feel on paper, expressing my feelings on this topic would be easier in person. Anways. Thanks for reading, and I’m sorry about the late post.
It’s scary to think that the government possibly knew about the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks before they happened. And let them happen for the oil in the Middle East. I’m not saying thats what I think, the whole thing is over my head. But still, scary thoughts. That is all.
School started back up again this past Wednesday. I can’t even say that the first day was okay, school’s just a huge drag. I actually forgot what tired feels like. In the summer, I slept till whenever I wanted; and got into the habit of taking naps for fun. Now I’m required to get up at 7, and TRY MY BEST to stay awake. I have a bad habit of falling asleep in classes once 6th Period is over. It’s gotten me in trouble a few times. Along with being tired, some of the people that go to my school irk me to no end. I hate to break it to ya kid, but I DON’T CARE where you went school shopping, I DON’T CARE what your pet did last night, and I DON’T CARE where you got your hats from. Sorry. I’m already regretting signing up for Chorale (a step above choir), along with another year of Spanish (which wasn’t necessary to pass High School). Yup, school’s pretty much a pain in my ass; I think it will be better than last year though. Thanks for reading.
For anyone who watches the news, you know that Muslim’s are planning on building a new Mosque near Ground Zero (The site of the 9/11 terrorist attack). Many people oppose this construction, saying that building a Mosque near Ground Zero is disrespectful. Others however say that these people should have freedom of religion, and should be able to build their place of worship where ever they please. Personally, I think they should be allowed to build their Mosque. They have the RIGHT to build it. I can understand why people oppose it though. Technically, it is a burial ground for 3,000. And to build a Mosque over top of that, is a bit disrespectful. The thing is, they have the RIGHT to build a place of worship WHERE EVER they please. And for that reason, I support the construction of the Mosque.That is all for Sunday’s Thought. I don’t really have much else to say regarding the topic, but I figured I might as well put my opinion out there to be heard. Thanks for reading. I’m planning on continuing this Tumblr, as well as “Sunday’s Thought”. Goodnight Internet. Below is a nice little cartoon I found on handy dandy Google Images.
In the words of the famous Fresh Prince: “Parents Just Don’t Understand”. Especially Lately. No need to go into detail, because my mom likes creeping on my Tumblr. Goodnight. Any suggestions for what I should write about tomorrow for ‘Sunday’s Thought?’
For Amherst students, school starts next week. Most everyone I’ve talked to says they’re ready for school to start. :O. HOW?! Summer has been fantastic. Who would want to end it to go back to some shitty school? Stupid people, that’s who =]. Although I don’t want summer to end quite yet, I think this school year will be better than the last. Freshman year was chaotic, to say the least. I didn’t know anyone, I didn’t know my way around, the rules were even different than the middle school. Now that I know my way around the school, I’m confident I can find all my classes with ease, and enjoy the school year more so than the previous. Highschool’s all about figuring out who you are as a person, and what you want to do with your life. It’s all one big experience, so live it up, and enjoy it.
