this is a 2 parter:
- why aren't you here?
- is it necessary to see that girl's hoo-ha?
- When the pilgrims discovered the East Coast, they didn’t like the idea of putting Los Angeles too close so they put it waaaaay over here. I think it was something to do with the Indians and the traffic. Come visit me, plz. I miss you lotz!
What is your favorite fashion blog? Do you by any chance read the lj community fashin?
My favorite fashion blog? You know, I really don’t have one anymore. I have so many lovely friends from previously blogging via-Blogspot that are still maintaining their amazing sites but I’ve failed to keep myself up-to-date. Work and moving has kept me so busy lately that the Internet is the last think I think about.
I don’t read LJ blogs either, but if I should start you should shoot me some links. I’d love to see what you’ve got!
What are the social and political issues you care about?
Hayhay, good question. I try and surround myself with current events as much as possible to stay informed on how the world is turning.
So, when it comes to my top-tier social & political issues, I’m super immersed in the health care shenanigans right now. I see it being a huge thing that is (and has been) keeping our country in tatters. As a vegan, I believe that the factory farm industry is a total clusterfuck to keep this country fat and perpetually sick. So, if we can make strides to get the common people a common good (health care) - we may actually start seeing healthier habits (and less high fructose corn syrup).
I’m also staying super informed on the elections coming up in the next few months, especially in my home state of Nevada. Harry Reid has some heavy republican Tea-Party crazies looking to boot him out of his place as the Senate Majority Leader, so it should be a heated season.
Along without my ramblings-on, I am also steadfast behind the pro-choice movement (having worked with Planned Parenthood), us getting the hell out of Iraq, and I could probably talk your ear off about American consumerism in a flailing economy but we’ll save that for a later day.
So there's been a uprising of people joining the social-networking-bandwagon (facebook, blogs, etc.) Do you think this is changing people for better or for worse? Or is it changing anything at all? I've tried blogging and all before but I feel totally awkward, wondering who reads my posts or if anyone does at all, or if I sound whiny or whatever. But yeah, anyways, thoughts??
Thanks for the question and I apologize for the HUGE and lengthy delay.
As for this social-networking-bandwagon we know so well, I think it depends on who the individual is. There are plenty of good things going on in the kingdom-de-blogging, whether it be for grassroots political movements or to teach someone a new trick for self-improvement. The dark side of it reveals a whole heaping amount of self-aggrandizing and sparkly narcissism that is so deeply embedded in what we know as our culture today.
So, if you have something awesome to say that might spread a little cheer via-the Interwebz, then say it. Don’t spray it (or you’re likely to be doing it all for the wrong reasons).
Sorry to ask you this, but when you get a text message on your iPhone and hit close does it still remain unread? On somewhat of the same note, do you have any recommendations for apps that people should download? I hope you are having a wonderful day. :)
My phone kind of does what it wants.
Sometimes I will get a new message and it won’t tell me, other times I will get the notification (dingding!) and if I’m in the middle of emailing or what-have-you, I will close it and not remember to recheck it until like two hours later. I turned off the reminder function on purpose, whoops.
As for apps, everyone needs The NY Times, NPR, Pandora, and Dictionary. I use those like a crazy person, also goes to show that I am not very interesting.
I also absolutely love the Pocket Universe app. It’s incredible for those of you who like to stargaze. It’s a star map that moves along with you while you move around the night sky, you can hold the phone up and it will point you in the right direction for certain constellations and planets. Not useful for those of us who live in GIGANTIC cities that radiate more light than the Milky Way, but I love to use it when I’m home visiting my folks in Nevada. Best star gazing on this side of the prairie, I tell ya.
