“Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions; it is governed by our mental attitude.”
Happiness is a decision; it is not based on what’s going on around us. It’s based solely on what’s going on inside of us. Our happiness is based on the thoughts that we choose to give our attention to; the thoughts that we choose to harbor. Dale Carnegie said, “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”” —
will make me see things from a different point of view.
I need a girl who will make me talk about the things
that scare me. I need a girl who will make me open up
to her, a girl who won’t give up on me. ” —unknown
Good Morning Sunday =D It’s been a really good morning. Well now it’s afternoon. I am in a really good mood and am sitting at the coffee shop just relaxing.
This weekend has been a really good weekend. I hope everyone else has has had a good weekend.

Peace & Love,
I’m sorry for all the text posts lol but the internet isn’t working at my house right now and so I have to do everything with my phone except for the times that I can make it to Caffeine Dreams and remember my computer. I can’t upload anything using my phone and so the only thing I can submit is text.
Today is a gorgeous day. It is so nice out, I went and got breakfast at 11Worth Cafe with my brother Jon, Chelsea, and Sean. It was delicious. Afterwards Chelsea went to work, Sean went to Caffeine Dreams, and I went down to the park in the Old Market with my brother and took pictures of trees and whatever else that I decided to take pictures of. I did take some pictures of Jon and I got some pictures of myself as well. We were having a lot of fun but then when we got back to my car I saw I had a text from Britt and I didn’t hear or feel my phone go off and it had been close to an hour before I saw it and responded. =/
I hope she isn’t mad.
Well I will post some pictures now that I have found that I have been wanting to submit but couldn’t lol.
I hope everyone has a lovely Saturday and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! lol
Happy 2 months! <3 I wish you were here, I love you =)
I went to the Senses Fail concert with Chelsea & Sean, it was AMAZING. A lot of screaming so my throat feels a little sore & I sound a little funny when I talk. I don’t see any bruises which is surprising because i’m usually all banged up after leaving concerts lol. I think it’s because there was a guy behind me that made a cage like thing around me so I wouldn’t get as hurt, I have no clue who this guy was or why he did that but I am grateful. However, my body hurts everywhere from being thrown around and my throat is really starting to hurt as the day goes on. It doesn’t help that it’s the kids Halloween Party at work today and I have 18 kids in my class and they are not listening. Today is a day from hell I’m telling yo. I can’t wait until 5.
This is from an e-mail that was sent to me from a group I joined on Facebook called Gay Revolution.
I do encourage people to join and if you don’t want to join I at least encourage people to check out the page.
I have talked about it before but I know I have new followers so here is the link, please take a look.
As for the news of the day
here it is:
So here we go. DADT was slapped with an injunction. There is an appeal pending. And since a San Fransico appeals court temporarily froze the injunction ,the military is still granting discharges through DADT. Now try and keep up with this mess, but only if recommended by the secretaries of the Army, Navy and Air Force. So basically still hide in the closet, the injunction currently doesn’t mean squat.
In my own neck of the woods here in Omaha the City Council today voted on legislation that would add LGBT people to the cities protection ordinance that would allow homosexual and transgender residents who believe they have been fired or suffered other workplace discrimination, or have been refused service at a restaurant, hotel or other place that serves the public, to file a complaint with Omaha’s Human Rights and Relations Department. After a 5 hour open session of Bible thumpers and discrimination the council shot down the ordinance on a 3-3 vote. One councilmemeber called gays “lazy”. Another stated that in so many words when he sees more discrimination he will vote to protect gays.
She also added this to the e-mail and this just made me sick.
If you think this part is wrong please reblog or copy & paste this portion because something needs to happen to this man for his actions.
An Arkansas SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER, Clint McCance in response to the wearing of purple in support of the gay teenage suicides wrote on his facebook page: “Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed therselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE.” Initially, six people “liked” McCance’s message. He also received supportive comments, though some challenged his statement. A commenter wrote, “Because hatred is always right.” That led McCance to write, “No because being a fag doesn’t give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it.” There is now a facebook page to FIRE Clint McCance. You can follow this link to participate. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fire-Clint-McCance/170421922968484?v=wall
Now, I understand that this is his personal facebook page but as a School Board Member I think you need to be a little more sensitive to matters like this and you should definitely not talk like this where students may follow you.
