I have been thinking about what I should do for my independent study next year. At first I wanted to organize a charity fashion show but now I think I might try to make a class dedicated to Bloggin/Vlogging. Can I get away with that?! I love blogging/vlogging so much but with all of the hub bub of school and lack of technology I find it really hard, so I thought I could just MAKE MY OWN CLASS where everyday I can come in and prepare videos and DIY posts and outfit posts and also make units for myself to study how social media works and write articles for different blogs. I could just totally dedicate one hour of everyday into doing what I love and then maybe at the end I could do a presentation to a media class or something. YAY I’M EXCITED!

So today I am driving down a street with my mom and the lady driving in front of us throws a bunch of trash out the window. I was super disgusted and so when we pulled up to the stop light and made awkward eye contact I just held it for a really long time and slowly nodded my head no while keeping a straight face for like 15 seconds. I think I creeped her out enough to stop her from littering ever again
So this video started going around my facebook today, with about a dozen of my female friends sharing the link with comments like, and “Everyone needs to see this”, and “All girls should watch this,” and “This made me cry.” And I’m not trying to shame those girls! I…
Praying for those in Boston today. For those in Iraq where 20 bombs were set off today. Praying for the 29 that were killed in Somalia because of a bomb set off yesterday. Praying for the thousands of innocent victims of U.S. drones in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia. Praying for everyone. Praying for this whole world. Because every life matters and because they are all equally important.
