SO, I'm moving to Las Vegas with one of my best friends in a little more than a year. I have two huge delima's though: My family, and my job.

Problem 1: I have no idea how to tell my family about my plans. They often disapprove of most everything I do. I have to live up to my cousin, who is, perfect in their opinion. I will be leaving a schoolarship that pays almost all of my tuition for one thing. Another thing is, that they tend to hold every little screw up I make agianst me for years, or until I make another mistake. So, if this plan falls through, and I have to return home, they will use it as an excuse to put me down in different ways. I have to get away from here though. I can no longer deal with the unnescessary pressure put on me. I have other, more importantant things to focus on, like figuring out what I want out of life, and not pleasing them.

Problem 2: I work part time at minimum wage. Plus, I only work about 15 hours a week, at the most. I have to save up 550 for school in non-acedemic related fees. I no longer have financial aid, because of, well, we wont go into that. But, I need a way to come up with at least 3500 on my own. My friend and I need roughly 7000 to move. Unless I find a way to get my financial aid, which gives me roughly 5k to waste on whatever I want, my little job won't be of much help.

On the bright side, we have nearly everything we need to live, ie, furniture, cooking utinsils, and other things like that. We won't have to buy much, outside of a kitchen table, and a couch/fuon. Luckilly those two things can be found fairly cheep.

Sadly though, my family is more of an obsticle than  the money. Well, here's to hoping everything works out.

I have this huge oak tree in my front yard, and it's surrounded by azalea bushes. I took a picture of it sometime in the middle of winter, then again a few weeks ago. I played with the colour some on them. Enjoy :)

tree pring correct

I'll take one of it in the middle of summer, and sometime in the fall too. It's such a beautiful tree to look at. One of my favorite things to do is lay underneath it and just write.

Rainy weather really sucks. It makes me sleepy, tired, and really unproductive. I have done nothing but lay in bed all day. Rain, go away please. I have things to do.
Current Mood: blahblah
Current Music: none

Could an educated person please explain to me what gay marriage and child molestation have in common, please?
SO, In my public speaking class we are doing persuasive speaches. One of the girls in the class did her speech on what she believes marriage should be. Okay, good. A person is entitled to his/her own opinion. This girl, we'll call her Ella, decided it was a good idea to compare gay marriage, and i'm assuming gay people in general, with CHILD MOLESTERS!!! Seriously? That is totaly uncalled for. It's appaling, rude, and extremely IGNORANT! I would love to know where this information comes from. I hope she unterstands that most child molesters actually happen to be peoples fathers, uncles, brothers, other family memebers, and close family friends. All of these men are of course, straight. There are rare cases, where a queer person can also be a child molester. It's like saying all muslim people are terrorist. I'm not saying anyone's family member is a child molester, just that it more likely to be one of them than it is to be a queer man, or even woman.
