My Ass Hurts

For two weeks now I have been wanting a bike very badly! Well I finally got to ride one and now I'm unsure about the situation. I jumped on my roommates bike and my roommate and I set off into the neighborhood. Now I know that I haven't ridden a bike in almost 10 years but damn I think this guys bike is messed up! It wouldn't shift gears and these damn hills out here!! I was huffing puffing and dying to get up those hills! Oh my god a few times I had to just stop and walk the damn thing up the hill. I was so mad and now as I sit here my ass hurts. I know I'm out of shape and I'm in the process of losing some extra weight but damn not cool. It was embarrassing and shocking how hard it was. I thought it would be a breeze with a bike but apparently not.

I so want this!!! Someone please buy me one? It's only 13 thousand dollars. See it here

Party at my house

Party like a rock-star. While not original it worked. I decided to host a little party with the group at my house. The theme was to dress like a rock star. Everyone came over and we totally started "having fun". Very low key, nothing over the top, I found some shot glasses that had blinky lights but nothing crazy. However the group totally went at it and not even an hour into everyone seemed pretty drunk.

I made the fatal mistake of busting out the 190 proof everclear!!! I didn't think anyone would really drink the stuff, I mean come on, everyone knows that crap is legal poison sold in a liquor store. Well a few people enjoyed the stuff and one person really enjoyed it and had a shitty night because of it. I freaked out a little (probably because I was drunk) but for good reason damn it! Everywhere I or my family has lived, neighbors have HATED us. I don't know wh)y, we are cool and don't do anything shady, no parties or anything. Maybe we are just too out there? Anyways I wanted everyone to be quite so the neighbors don't get mad and start to hate me. I know I will only be here for a few months but still...

Anyways I'm pissed because I didn't take pictures, I know I can't grab photo's off my camera right now but I should still take pictures, and I will now try to.

Oh and I totally have a new appreciation for the house I live in. Everyone thought it was sweet, with a "secret" room and what not. (Now called the Morocian room) I thought the house was already sweet, well it turns out there has been some campfire like circle with a fire pit hiding in the jungle called a backyard. (Discovered the next day while the roommate and I cleared the jungle with masheti things)

For sure I got the party spot... Damn my neighbors are going to hate me. :(

The highlight of my day was finally going to the store with a car! Bloody hell I don't think I have ever been so excited to go grocery shopping. A fellow GOT'er took me to the store and I went crazy, filled up my cart, and spent over 100 bucks. I'm so happy I can eat more than P&J sandwiches. :'),

Today they trained us on how to petition out on the streets. They wanted us to get some live practice for later on in the semester. I was a little anxious but thought it would be a good experience. But I was totally taken back by the fear and reaction of others in the group. Some were extremely nervous about it. Others didn't want to do it. I guess I forget that some people don't like talking to perfect strangers on the street. Something I really would like to get better at!

I'm not going to lie, it's hard to go out into a very busy intersection trying to get busy strangers to fill out post cards. I'm talking like downtown D.C. here, no joke, suit and tie's walking around in a hurry. I stood next to a busy metro entrance and did my thing. Of course I kicked ass and went beyond the goal set. I was very proud of myself. :-)

Plus I had a ton of fun, I can't wait until Delaware!

End of Week Two

It's Friday and I awoke to find a very cloudy and raining morning. I definitely didn't mind the rain since we mostly watched movies today. We watched An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gores movie. Today was actually my first time ever seeing the movie, which often surprises people.

Why haven't I seen it before?

Well to be honest I knew I would know all the information already. Yes, that is big headed of me. I knew the movie would just piss me off! It's no secret that the U.S. hasn't done enough to combat Global Warming and that's why I'm mad. Anyways, we watched it and I of course didn't learn anything new! However, it didn't make me that mad, and that's because I AM doing something about it. In fact, in two weeks I will be in Delaware working on a campaign called Project Hot Seat info and working very directly towards fixing the problem.

What did make me mad was the complete bullshit film they made us watch afterwards!

An Inconvenient Truth or Convenient Fiction?

It was some Global Warming Denial film and honestly it was such crap. Very vague and nonsensical, using extremely non-convincing "claims". Point being, the film tries to make people think scientists don't really know what's going on with Global Warming, when the truth is they do! We are killing the planet and we're going to be totally screwed if we don't do anything about it and fast! Anyone can see for themselves here, thousands of scientist from around the world have compiled thousands of pages of text and books. What does it all say? That we are totally fucked if we don't do something to reverse or stop Global Warming. Honestly people. We NEED our government to act!

Ok back to the point. After we watched the movies are advisors let me determine how we should discus the movie. I broke everyone up into two groups and had everyone search online to see where this "organization", (Pacific Research Institute) and this idiot guy (Steve Hayward) in the film was getting it's money from. What do you know! ExxonMobile... hmm. What a shocker.

I just don't get it. Why would oil companies try to hide the severity of Global Warming from us? When trust me, in fact they have gone through great lengths to. Why don't oil companies spend all their money on investing into renewables right now. That way they can be the first and biggest in the game. People won't hate them, well after a name change, at least. They could dominate the energy world, just, with ultra-clean and renewable energy. I just don't get the strategy. They can be just as rich if they beat everyone to the race! Instead they play some kind of game with us (the public) and hurt the environment.

I'll tell you this, they will be making NO money if the planet is thrown into complete and utter chaos by environment damage that can't be reversed.

Big Oil = Horribly Flawed Business Plan

I don't have enough and I don't know what to do. :-(
