As I've been jumping here and there through the blogosphere I've been noticing something more and more. It's the "trigger" or "content" warnings a lot of people have at the top of their posts, or sometime both at the top and interspersed through it. I'm fed up with this age of political correctness. So many people are constantly getting butt hurt over every little thing. Have people already forgot how to Internet? You can't take this world of opinions, misled facts, and just plain idiocy seriously. If you've entered that realm of being so easily set off into a self loathing/harming spiral, seek help. Now. Get off the computer, and stay away until you're able to handle things. There's a giant, amazing world out there. It's actually full of mostly decent people. However, the Internet isn't.
So, if I want to talk about drugs, sex, religion, politics, how I can't find jeans for skinny people anymore, how much I hate reality TV "stars", how amazing my dogs are, or yes, even say retarded, I will. There will be no caveats, no head's up. Before long we won't even be able to make eye contact with people for fear of offending them. Nope, not me. You do whatever you want, but don't you dare tell me what I should put out into the world.
On a different note, here's a pretty sunset from last night.
I'm a mid twenty something woman living in New England with my two dogs. I graduated college in 2008, and by then the economy was tanking. It was not a good time to enter the adult world. I was originally going to Vet school, but developed severe animal allergies. After 7 months of allergy shots, that affected my liver and actually made my symptoms much worse, i had to give up that dream. Now I'm just trying to find a steady job. I had major reconstructive knee surgery in November of 2011, so I'm still healing.
