It's because of stupid people

"It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top." -Henry Ward Beecher

Don't die of shock, two posts in one day I know.

So I was walking home today. I was standing at the point I usually cross the road at, it's called a crosswalk for that reason, waiting for a break in the cars so I could cross safely. When there was I proceeded to cross and this guy barrels passed, hitting my shoulder in the process. When we get to the other side he says to me, "You know you have the right away, right?" Excuse me? Duh I know. I wasn't raised ignorant. I also know that if I step out into the road with a bunch of cars coming at me I'll get hit. And just because you have the right doesn't mean you should use it. I have the right to b*** slap you for touching me and I have the right to claim self defense for it too. Doesn't mean I will.
All of this ran through my head, my response? "Yeah."

I will restate the reason for this post. JUST because you have the "right" doesn't mean you should use it.

So there has been a lot that has been going on. First of all K lah has moved up here. This is awesome. I go over several times a week with Gryff. I not only get to spend lots of time with K lah and A of the MAC Pack, I get fed great organic food. Plus I get to help cook and grind wheat. I'm finding if things are cooked the right way, healthy isn't necessarily gross.

I've been asked out on two dates, not that I have gone on said dates, not through fault of my own. The first was his best friend came into town and the other was I was to be at an event for the committee I am on and he didn't come.

Oh yeah the committee. I'm on the committee for Best Of. Basically I go to shows and hand out flyiers. Also Best Of is supposed to be the best of all the talent shows acts in one thing. However as I witnessed on Friday it's not that way so much. Oh kinda fun story. As I was sitting at Acoustic Cafe I had a list of the performers in front of me, so I could remember the acts I liked. Anyway a name looked cool and when the performer got up I kinda recognized her. It wasn't till she started to talk that I realized why I did. 5 years ago she was my counselor at Outdoor Youth Adventure! I was 14 the last time I saw her. How crazy is that?! I wanted to go find her but I felt kinda dumb going up to her and saying "Hi, do you remember me? I was in one of your groups from five years ago from how many weeks in the summer?" Yeah you would have felt dumb too, so I didn't.

Still trying to find a summer job. I am applying to summer camps so if you spot one send me an e-mail.
