Hello everyone!

I don’t know why.

Maybe it was because they keep calling while all I’m trying to do is do some grocery shopping. Maybe it’s because not only they called me but took advantage of the fact that I stopped to listen to what they had to say. Perhaps it was the way that the guy looked at me when I said I knew what the definition of transgender was, like “Are you sure you know what it was?” PLEASE. I HAVEN’T LIVED UNDER A ROCK. Then asking me for 365 dollars, then 30 dollars, pushing me to tell you that I am a broke college student that doesn’t have time (by this point he was talking for 15 minutes), AND by this point super irritated about him asking for so much money when I have given so many cues of “No, sorry”. 

I don’t have anything against gays. I have something against people pushing for more money like as if I grow them on trees. If you guys were such a great organization, shouldn’t you already be sponsored? What about the kids who aren’t gay and who are being bullied? What are you doing about that? Bullying isn’t about just gay or transgender people, bullying isn’t racist or sexist or homophobic. Bullying is susceptible to everyone. 

Next time I go to Trader Joes, I am ignoring you guys, period.

One of my fellow peer counselors came in with one of these and it made me feel a tinge of envy.

Things to do/learn whilst in my 20’s
  1. Grow and develop more in my relationship with God: listening constantly what He says and following his steps to living the amazing life He has for me
  2. Be a more neater person (I’m ever so slowly improving…)
  3. Learn how to do hair and makeup like a pro (Especially for fancier events). I am clueless with foundation and eye shadow, it’s saddening. 
  4. Gain my career and profession: this is one of those “no duh” ones but hey it’s still very important!
  5. learn how to drink responsibly 
  6. Travel, see the world, gain new insight etc. Travel alone at least once before I get hitched 
  7. find a church that I can potentially stay at forever and get super involved in it for once
  8. Provide for myself and have no parental dependence (Except for when I need fashion advice, I’m still going to need my mom for that sometimes)

Nelson Mandela 
Today, the world lost an amazing man. He was the voice of many who had a difficult time speaking up for themselves. He was against discrimination and apartheid. Apartheid was a system of racial segregation; separating the ‘black’, ‘white’, ‘colored’ and Indians. Some were deprived of the rights the others would have and others would have more privileges and advantages for the sole reason of racial discrimination.
Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95. With his death, South Africa lost one of it’s own brilliant sons. We have every reason to mourn but that shouldn’t mean we shouldn’t recall all that he’s done and how much of an inspiration and a hero he was to the billions of people in the world.
"In my country we go to prison first and then become President." - Nelson Mandela • Mandela was the South Africa’s first ‘black’ president. Just that, says a lot already. He also served 27 years of his life in prison for protesting and going against South African apartheid.
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." - Nelson Mandela  • Not only was he fighting for what he believed in, but he also became a sign of peace and he hope. He fought for the freedom he knew everyone deserved. He fought for what was right. He fought against discrimination. Even though it came with its consequences, he was still brave enough to not give up. That is what makes him such a great man.
“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite.” - Nelson Mandela • I don’t even have any words for this, this is such a smart thing to say and I will forever remember this.
"It always seems impossible until its done." - Nelson Mandela • This is very true, especially in his case. To many, inspiring billions and fighting against the government for what you believe in seems impossible. But Nelson did and he succeeded. He proved that the impossible was possible.
Rest in the peace that you have left us with, Nelson Mandela. The world is so thankful for you and what you have done.
