I think I need to “see other people” in regards to my relationship with Facebook. I’m just sick of politics! It’s a topic I don’t like to discuss, mostly because my opinions greatly differ from the majority of people my age. I also don’t like to argue with people over things we have no control over. I get that people are passionate about their views, but don’t agree with their views being shoved down my throat.
Guess what? I don’t give a flying fig if you’re republican, democrat, Episcopalian independent, or insane. You won’t convert me, stop trying. In the same respect, I won’t try to convert people. At the end of the day, I don’t care if someone agrees with me. It’s great that some people care so much! If you think you can make a difference, please go right ahead. I might sign your petition or help your cause. For me, it takes too much energy to get invested in something that you can’t control. I keep myself educated and when the time comes, I vote for the lesser of two evils. I like the option of choosing a candidate from whatever party. I don’t want to be pigeon-holed into one category. There are things I like within each party and things I’m vehemently against. I will never find a perfect fit and I don’t expect it.
Politicians are all a bunch of assholes that think they know what is best for you anyway. They don’t know you! To be fair, no person in office will ever make decisions that everybody agrees with. I used to get angry, but it takes a lot to hate something you can’t change. The best I can do is wait to the end of term, and hope the country or state isn’t up in flames.
Oh yes, apparently there was an earthquake in the sticks of Maine last night (to be honest, every place in Maine is the sticks). I was on the couch and thought my dog was pawing at it. I was about to tell him to stop, when I realized he was at the front door. I turned to my boyfriend and asked if he felt that. He confirmed, and we went to the basement to be sure the boiler didn’t explode. Our neighbors also asked if we felt the house shake. We then decided to wait a few minutes and check the news to see if it was an earthquake. This is the second earthquake I’ve felt in a year or so. Dear Earth, please stop shaking! My poor dog thinks he is responsible!
