So there is a major issue that I have been struggling with for a while now. I thought maybe it would just go away or solve itself, but it hasn't and its becoming painfully obvious that it won't vanish on its own. So tonight, I thought I would come out and talk about this very troubling occurence, a crime against humanity, if you will. I'm not sure if there are any solutions to this problem, but please if you come up with any ideas, don't hesitate to inform me of them. I first noticed this problem towards the beginning of the year...I'm not sure of the exact date, but I know it was only a few short weeks into this semester. In all honesty, I don't think that I recognized the seriousness of the problem initially, but now it's evident just how frequently these vile actions occur. It is beginning to bother be to a magnitude which only those who have been tortured themselves could begin to fathom. Why do human beings do this to one another? Where is the justice? Where is the peace? But I have come to realize that there isn't any. No matter, what I do, no matter where I go, I will always be victim to the harsh and judgemental looks of others when I sit in a public place and...write. It's almost as though writing is a completely foreign concept to others. I really do get the most bizarre looks. Just tonight I was at Chic-fil-a, and I broke out my little book and began to write while my friend began to talk to some other people, and you would have thought that I was doing something completely insulting. To inform you of the exact way that I felt in the moment, here is a quote from my darling little book. "I also love the looks I get when I sit down and write in a public place. Its like a nudist just going somewhere and sitting down...only it's a lot more decent and I can't be arrested." So I ask you ladies and gentlemen, how long are we going to sit idly by and let this injustice continue? When will we band together and stand up to the forces that keep pushing us down? Now is our time!!!

haha. yeah so anyways, that's all i got! just a little silliness....i'm a bit hyper after drama! hope everybody has a fantastic evening! Lots of love!!!

Alas, the agony of holding true to one's inner callings can oft' times seem not only perplexing, but overwhelming as well! Be brave, be bold, stand and scoff in the face of normalcy and mediocrity. Fear not to separate yourself from the doldrums of a routine and mundane existence! Go forth and write, Write, WRITE until your heart sings and your hands fly over the papyrus of life!!!! Yada, yada, yada! You make me proud! Pops
