I was 17 when I first opened up about the various issues going on in my life in a public forum. I remember getting some hateful comments, but the majority of people were supportive. Fast forward almost 10 years, and it almost seems like the tables have turned. As our lives are shared more and more, outsiders begin to feel the need to critique the goings on in our lives. By having blogs, twitter accounts, etc., we do technically open ourselves up to the criticism. We don't, however, open ourselves up to hateful remarks, ignorance, etc....more
Race is commonly based upon skin color, facial features, and hair textures. There have also been groups designated as races based on religion, culture, social, national, ethnic, linguistic, genetic, geographical, and anatomical groupings. This makes one wonder what exactly makes a person a certain race. If it's religion, am I part of a Mormon race? That makes no since since I'm from a convert family. If it's cultural, then am I part of an educated race? Well, that sounds quite elitist. If it's social, am I part of a liberal race? That doesn't ...more
It's almost unheard of for a woman to go into a workplace or a school and shoot people. Profiles of workplace shooters do not even involve the idea that a woman would kill her co-workers, but it happens....more
As many good discussions start, this one was originated on Facebook. There's a poll asking what people think of Universal Health Care and/or Obama's plan. I've always been a proponent of making health care a government mandated program. This, of course, is unpopular, particularly in Alabama and amongst my more conservative friends.

Living in a country where you don’t like the
leadership is difficult, I’ll admit. However, it is NOT impossible.
This is a quick and simple guide for non-Obama supporters to make it
through the next few weeks, months, and years.
My church has this belief that watching R-rated movies is bad. I believe that it isn't fair to judge them without understanding them a little better, i.e. watching them and deciding for yourself. When I brought this up with a church friend, it did not go over well.
There are so many accusations these days against ACORN that they've committed voter fraud, but is it really? To commit voter fraud, one must actually try to vote and present documentation at the polls as someone else. Has anyone done this? Not so far.
I've never actually introduced myself on here. I'm Janet. I'm 24 years old. I've been blogging since I was 17. I'm quite opinionated, though in public, I tend to hold the opinions back because it's hard to be a liberal in Alabama and in my church. (I'm LDS, which is Mormon for those of you who didn't know.) I love music, art, and writing.
I'm trying to get back into college right now so that I can study Graphic Design and Psychology.
