I must be growing up.

in Life

Overall, I would consider myself a very un-political person. I just never really cared and was completely uninterested in current affairs and government. It is not a good trait by any means. I can tell you what celebrity married who, and what their kids names are. . . but I wouldn’t be able to recognize our Vice President Cheney in a line-up. I know. PATHETIC.

But things are changing for me. With blogs, Twitter, and current.com, I have become much more aware of what is going on in our government and around me in general. I have been able to vote for 10 years now and I have only voted twice so far, none being for presidential elections. The first time was for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and I voted for him because I liked his movies. MOVIES. I know, I can’t even believe it myself. That is just how I think. I am wired differently. That is why I am a video editor and not a lawyer. The second time I voted, I can’t even remember what it was for.

I still don’t understand all politics and have much more learning to do. But I am sure of this. . .

Vote Obama ’08

Vote NO on Prop 8

Vote YES on Prop 2

I am also sure that I will not become like my ultra-conservative, referring to homosexuals as The Gays, “Don’t let a gay person touch you, because you might catch it,” Parents-in-Law. NEVER.

I just found your blog through blog her & I wanted to say hello, because I live in Pasadena, too! I figured your must have been a Californian, because saw that you were saying NO on Prop 8 (I agree, myself) & I didn’t think they had that measure in other states… or maybe they do.

Nevertheless, I just wanted to say hi! :]
