Alicia Keys - Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)






I never liked Chad Michael Murray until this video. I absolutely love this song. The entire cd is pretty great! I bought it the day it came out. Alicia is one of the best.

Rants And Raves

Yet another reason Obama Rules!!!!!

I normally refrain from blogging on politics or anything of that nature. I do like to spread the word though when it comes to the environment and animal rights issues but I would truly love to express my opinion and just rant I guess about the BP oil spill. First off, Im very saddened and angered by this entire situation. More so saddened because of all the sea life that has been lost and threatened; not to mention the oil is still spreading; so for the future losses as well. We also have to consider the long term effects this will have on the ecosystem and the environment. Sad sad sad. I wish there was more that can be done to help but I don’t have any wigs lying around. I say that because I researched how we might be able to help with this disaster but only found articles about donating wigs and hair.
A. I have a pixie cut already and B. I don’t have any wigs.

I have to admit, at first I totally ignored the situation for fear of how it would make me feel. Yet, it goes against my beliefs to stand by and watch this happen and not do anything about it. If all I do is write about it, at least Im putting good energy into the atmosphere because I do believe positive energy can effect and change the world.
What really caused me to start becoming more involved in this situation was when my cousin Adriana started talking about it and mirrored the same feelings of fear that I had been feeling.
So I started looking up articles and I was appalled at what I was reading. It has been five weeks since the spill and ove 1 million gallons is spilling daily. 1,000,000 GALLONS+ DAILY! Over 75,000,000 in monetary damages but permanent priceless damages to our sea life and water and ecosystem. BP does not feel responsible for these damages and Ive read headlines blaming President Obama!!!! REDICULOUS!!!!!! SHAMEFUL!!! DISGUSTING!! This was a preventable accident long in the making that could have been fixed but instead GREED! Not to mention the poor workers that lost their lives.
During lunch I caught a small piece of the live presidential report and I was so happy about what President Obama was saying. Excited and proud of our President. These changes that he is making are definitely for the better. No more letting the oil companies control us!

Direct quotes from the press conference

He added that BP will pay "every dime" for the damage it has done to the coastal communities. "BP is responsible for this horrific disaster and we will hold them fully accountable on behalf of the United States," he said

The moratorium has been extended and new oil drilling suspended. Great news. Lease sales of the coast of VA and MX have been cancelled.


I honestly think we need to stop depending on oil and vehicles as our only means of transportation. One of my goals is to move closer to work and riding a bike to and from my destinations.

Ive said my peace. God is Love.
This link is for actual nasa satellites coverage of the spill…they even put sad music which I thought was a bit much but it works.

WEEK WRAP UP

Well Well Well. LOL I can not believe that we are already in May of 2010. Wow how time flies. Just yesterday I was a little girl watching cartoons without a care in world…..wait a minute I had many cares and many worries. I was a very worrisome child back then. You might even say a little different but “everything Im not makes me everything I am”. But that’s for another day and time since they say we have all the time in the world but where in the heck does it go!
Im going on day 26 of no animal meat! Yay for me! I don’t think that Ive ever been happier about a decision Ive made in my life. This weekend Im gonna try some new fruits and veggies and vegetarian means. Im so excited. Ive started working out as well. This is going to be a great rest of the year!

ME EATING A VEGGIE BURRITO FROM CHIPOTLE. IT WAS PRETTY GOOD.
I love fashion but I think that I really love individuality more. A person with their own perspective and idea of what looks good. Sometimes I think trends kill individuality. I try to stay away from that all together. Don’t get me wrong! I love my skinny jeans and ballet flats but I do not like Ed Hardy or label “whores” It lacks a certain genuine quality. But then again I have to say Im being a bit of a hypocrite because Im loving florals and gladiator shoes. But I also like to think that florals are classic and worn the right way can always be in style. Its all about how you wear your clothes and your expression of an outfit. For example Alexa Chung has this great quality about her that it seems that everything just works on her. I think she just has this way about her and can “just own it” ya know? The point of this paragraph, because it seems Im just rambling is that I bought this rad(yes I said rad) shirt at Forever 21. It’s white with a print of marily on the front in black and white. Its sweet. I took pics with my camera phone but Im not sure if im going to post them but I might just post a link. The back of the shirt is lace. I had to wear a shirt underneath of course cause A. Im not a hussy. Lol Jk and really B. I wore it to work. I got some really cool stuff this past time I shopped Forever 21 online.

Im posting some pics taken from my camera phone, might as well, or they will just stay trapped in there.
Other than that, my week hasn’t been very exciting but nonetheless Ive enjoyed it.
Also, a while back I talked about this guy Im dating. I call him Mr Boss. Lol jk I don’t but that can be his name here. I think that isn’t going anywhere fast and Im just gonna let it die away. He lives too far anyways and Im the one always doing all the traveling. Plus when I went over the other day he and his friends had made dinner and it was just grilled meat and I politely told them no thanks Im a vegetarian but he insisted I eat some because Ive only been meatless for a few weeks. HOW RUDE!!!!! I find him to be very inconsiderate and self centered. I could look past this because he is so darn handsome but the key word is COULD but I will NOT! Looks are not everything my momma always told me. Momma didn’t raise no fool. Lol on that last one. I just added that one in for good measure. So I haven’t called Mr Boss since our last meeting and he hasn’t called me either so maybe its mutual. In the end I really don’t care. You live and you learn.
Well Ive rambled on quite long enough this fine and beautiful Texas day. Love love love!

Note to self: I need a new camera. Phone camera pics suck! Rude boys can go with Rihanna(im referencing the song not C-Brown. Rihanna is awesome!) and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

QUOTABLES

"If a man earnestly seeks a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from animal food."

My favorite Beatle

“If anyone wants to save the planet, all they have to do is just stop eating meat. That’s the single most important thing you could do. It’s staggering when you think about it. Vegetarianism takes care of so many things in one shot: ecology, famine, cruelty.”
-Sir Paul McCartney

SAD GEORGE.... :*(

Poor Mickey and Minnie

I havent had any kind of meat in over two weeks. I feel great, physically and mentally. I feel good that even though I am only one person, I can make a difference. I wish I knew more people that are vegetarians, more people with common interests. I feel alone in my group of friends and family. As my make my journey to stop eating meat I have also become more aware of the cruelty and abuse that happens to animals. I came across a blog entry on one of the blogs I just started reading called VEGANLOVEPLANET.COM There is always informative and interesting information updated almost daily. Today it put a spotlight on PETA'S video regarding mice and feeling pain. MICE FEEL PAIN PEOPLE!!!!!! The video and accompanying article are so sad. It makes me sad that we disregard animals as just that....animals. How are mice or chickens any different for your new puppy or kitten? I look at meat now in a totally different way. I am posting this video but beware its upsetting........
