Star Wars at the Bowl

Don't know how I managed to hold in my laughter, but I eavesdropped on the best conversation.

A: What are they doing with those colored wands? Do they just want attention or something?
B: That's from Star Wars.
A: Oh.

P.S. Why didn't anyone tell me that it's a bring-your-lightsaber(s) event? They're selling fake lightsabers for $10

Government Shutdown
the big bang theory, tbbt, jim parsons, sheldon

Is it sad that I kind of feel happy about this whole government shutdown shenanigan? As a recent undergraduate with a political science major, I wish I was still in school just to have in-class discussions about this whole ordeal. I've always been the type of person who tries to treat everyone equally, especially when it comes to political beliefs. I don't exactly hide my ideologies; I'm a registered Democrat and have volunteered for the party, but I'm really a socialist. Yes, a socialist. No, not that "dirty" word that America has fooled everyone to believe is the worst thing known to the country. Google it.

Anyway... On to the more important issue at hand: the government shutdown. What this all really comes down to is Obamacare (otherwise known as the Affordable Healthcare Act), which passed in 2010. I think Obamacare isn't perfect, but the United States is one of the few first-world countries that do not provide universal healthcare to its peoples. Okay, I know that Obamacare isn't exactly universal healthcare, but at least there's a piece of legislation that tries to solve the healthcare system in America. I'm not saying it's the best thing ever, but seeing as how controversial the whole healthcare topic has been as of lately, I'm glad that it has enough flaws to attract people's attention.

So yes, I'm kind of happy about the government shutdown. It's a shame that it takes big events to bring awareness to politics. I don't remember another time that so many people have taken to Facebook and Twitter to express their distaste in American government. I think I even smiled just scrolling down my timeline; it warms my heart to see people actually posting statuses and tweeting about politics as opposed to their outfit of the day or how they have so much homework and midterms.

And then it's even better because people posting these opinions have only heard soundbites. They haven't researched the whole story. They don't know that Obamacare and the Affordable Healthcare Act are the same thing. They don't understand that they are the ones who can elect these senators and representatives into office. And then I see someone complaining about jury duty, and it makes me even more furious that there's a government shutdown and someone is whining about having the ability to declare another American citizen as guilty or innocent. Can people be more selfish?

I just wish that people cared more about what's going on in their own country. I think we deserve the government shutdown. Let us realize how politics is something that we should pay attention to and try to actually help one another. It's going to be a slow and long process, but I think one day we'll be a good country again. But by the time that happens, who knows? Maybe I'll just get so tired of all the bullshit in this country and have moved somewhere else. We'll see.

Humans are so brutal

They constantly rip each other apart instead of bonding with each other and getting to know one another.

There's no point in dividing the species when we all have the same buildup and instincts.

I love this semester! It's crazy and hectic, but it's been an amazing experience. I've realized that if I really push myself, I can do a lot of things. I've also lost so much sleep over the past months, but I think of it as a benefit.

This past month/weekend was pretty intense itself. On March 26th, I went to watch 365 Days, which was a play at school. I don't think I could handle being a part of that show because every night would be so emotional. I think it's because I feel so passionate about wars in general; I am a pacifist! I spent Sunday with my parents.

Spring Break was not enough, but I did enjoy going to Six Flags and the road trip up to Northern California. I don't think I can handle Six Flags anymore! :( We visited Hearst Castle, San Francisco State University (SFSU), and Alcatraz. It really was a knowledgeable experience; I learned so much and it made me open my mind even more.

This past week has also been very busy. On Tuesday, rehearsal was cancelled so I was able to go to the baseball game. We won! :) Wednesday and Thursday were ASI elections for President/Vice President and the Board of Directors. Results were released at night time, and there will be a run-off election this week because neither parties had 51% of the votes. Also, I think it is necessary to note that (I think) only 3% of the school voted in general. On Friday, I went to watch the Grand Central one-acts. My favorite was 'Dentity by Christopher Durang -his works are amazingly hilarious- but I also appreciated the experiment of Savage/Love.

Saturday was Queer People of Conference at UC Riverside. It has been my favorite part of the month so far! It was an all-day event (it technically spanned over 3 days, but we only went on Saturday) with a variety of workshops. I learned so much about other peoples' perspectives and etc. It also made me feel more passionate about some things that I already believe in. Today, I watched Footloose. I had heard about it and I know it's really popular. I never really knew what it was about, so it was a nice surprise to experience it today. Afterward, I ate a lot of food. Went to Sprinkles, The Shack (similar to Boiling Crab), Half & Half (another boba tea place), and Krispy Kreme.

This upcoming weekend is California Higher Education Student Summit (CHESS) and I am REALLY looking forward to it. I love conventions/conferences/etc. because I get to meet new people, share ideas and discuss thoughts, and learn more about the world in general. Before I leave to Sacramento on Friday, I also have to take care of Spring Concert, which is on April 22nd, and rehearsals for The Crowd You're In With.

I am also trying to be involved in a new organization called Multicultural Arts Council and the LGBT Resource Center.

I'm full because I ate too much today... 2 spam musubis from L&L, white gummy bear from Jamba Juice, Becky's chocolate covered banana, Jessica's souffle, and I'm about to eat my 3 tacos from Del Taco. Remind me to exercise!

My favorite piece from the show...


"Mixed blood is shit.

You're just fuckin' crazy, lady.

Black man with a story about flying! Shit!

Bring it, bitch! Here I am!

I fucked people up.
Blood was like food to me.
Like a God of the night.

Killed a man in the Bronx seven years ago.
Smashed his face clean into the grill of a Lincoln.

Continental with whitewalls,
leather interior, nice shine.

You think I'm sorry?
I'd do it again.
You think I'm afraid?

Don't none of you think I'm going to change."
