So, tonight Marissa, Kerry and I decided to explore the abandonded military mental hospital! I decided to take my camera and try to "capture" any spirits that may appear. Now, keep in mind there was NOTHING but pitch blackness when I took the pictures, most of them are candid and YES my lenses were clean! I had taken pictures before and NONE of my pictures AWAY from that area have the same thing!

I stole this from someone, I think it's cool.

If you are a woman voter, thank a feminist.
If your doctor is a woman, thank a feminist.
If you open the help-wanted section of any U.S. paper and see job listings classified by occupation rather than "help wanted - male" and "help wanted - female", thank a feminist.

If you are told you can become something other than a nurse, a grade-school teacher, a housewife and mother, or a nun, thank a feminist.
If you expect to be considered for admission to university programs based on your qualifications rather than your gender, thank a feminist.

If you are considered a person in your own right rather than the chattel of a man, thank a feminist.
If you're legally permitted to own property in your own name, thank a feminist.
If you don't expect to be fired because a man "needs your job to feed his family", thank a feminist.
If the phrase "non-traditional occupation" seems a little old-fashioned or, better yet, you don't understand it at all, thank a feminist.
If you can look in the yellow pages of your nearest major metropolis and find a dedicated women's clinic, thank a feminist.
If you hear terms like "firefighter", "police officer", or "postal worker" in everday life, thank a feminist.

If you're a grown woman and don't expect to be called "girl" when you're fifty, thank a feminist.

Feminists brought about all of these things. Before the feminists got involved, the reverse was true in each and every case.

Take some time, today, and thank a feminist.

Because gay marriage is just plain wrong.
1. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people can’t legally get married because the world needs more children.

2. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

3. Straight marriage will be less meaningful, since Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

4. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are property, blacks can’t marry whites, and divorce is illegal.

5. Gay marriage should be decided by people not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of the minorities.

6. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

7. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

8. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

9. Children can never suceed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven’t adapted to cars or longer lifespans.

11. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a “seperate but equal” institution is always constitutional. Seperate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as seperate marriages for gays and lesbians will.

(And just a reminder for all you kids out there: "Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic".)

I've been super busy lately, but I like that, I think. I haven't had a day off in a while, and I won't for a while longer, which sucks, but hopefully good things will come.
I got a new job at Clear Channel. I am now training to be a Traffic Producer. It's a fancy name for a not so fancy job. I don't even like the job (so far) that much, but I'm hoping to soon LOVE IT. I'm thinking about talking to James, my boss, and asking him what he thinks. I am told that this could be a really good thing, but I want to make sure it will help me out in the long run, rather then not. I don't want to be doing it for nothing. I like Board Oping, and really dislike the traffic producer job so far. Today, while I was being trained, I asked my trainee (I guess that's what you call it) if he liked it. He told me later that he HATED it. I said well, at least April (our boss) said it may get us on air! And he said she says that to everyone, and it hasn't so far. I'm kinda worried, but I did hear my boss saying he has only been there for two months and he still isn't very good. I guess we'll see. Any advice would be nice.

Today, while I was training I look over and see what looks like two men wrestling. I am thinking okay, funny guys, then I realize they are NOT wrestling and one guy is on top of the other shoving things in his mouth because he's having a seizure! There is another guy on the phone with 911 and blood is coming out of the man's mouth. Very scary! I rush to get paper towels for them and try to get out of the way. It was VERY scary, me thinking I may watch this man die, but he pulled through. He was having an interview and then all of a sudden started having a seizure! How scary/sad/embarassing! I feel so bad for him. The paramedics came and he had no idea where he was or what was going on. Very sad, but I'm glad he was okay. At least he was when I was there.

I need to quit the babysitting job, and I am, because of this new job. I can't wait! I can't wait to not have to watch those brats anymore! Well, I love Genna, but she is even getting on my nerves and I know it's time to stop.

Ahh, I am SO TIRED!! So, Marissa hacked into my myspace account and changed my user name, thinking I had hacked into hers and changed hers, when I didn't. LoL, I don't care, it's funny. I think I may change some of my passwords though, too many people know them and I don't like it.

Okay, I'm out.
Nite Nite.



My pirate name is:


Iron Bess Flint



A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

This is SO SAD but really touching. I had to post it.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I
wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

repost this if you belive homophobia is wrong
