Elderly drivers

June 2nd, 2009 (11:14 pm)

current mood: annoyed

I just saw on the news a disturbing story...

A 93 year old man SOMEHOW while looking for a HANDICAPPED parking spot in front of a Walmart manages to avoid 6 concrete poles and crash through the front entrance, severely injuring a 15 month old...

I'll keep this short and sweet... I've literally almost been run over or run off the road by elderly drivers more than I have teenage drivers. Elderly people should be much more greatly scrutinized and prohibited than teenagers. Just because they have age experience, doesn't make them physically capable to drive any longer.

I hate that email was even invented.

It is the lazy man's way of trying to carry on a real conversation.

And the kicker is that when people send out emails, regardless of the time of day or other people's lives, they assume the recipient got the message the INSTANT you sent the goddamned thing.

Also, the fact that people always seem to send UBER-important, time sensitive messages VIA EMAIL!!! and assume you get them in time. If you really have something important to tell me that you want to know makes it to me... for the love of goodness... freakin' call!

I am honestly at my wits end with "office" working people and their idiotic assumptions that just because they sit at their desk on their ass all day and are bored, that you are doing the exact same thing and neurotically checking your email every several seconds. UM NO!!!! A vast majority of the working world is not connected to the internet and email 24/7. If you send a message in the middle of the day after everyone has left home for a day at work... just ASSUME they WON'T see it until the end of the day. Anything IMPORTANT or TIME SENSITIVE that needs to be relayed - F'ING CALL THEM!!! Or even sending out an email after most people's lunch hours have come and gone... don't send it out and again assume they'll get it before they head for home.

Office dwelling people just CANNOT grasp this... I have NO F'ING idea why!!!!!!!!!! I WORKED in an office and I was sure to email people with plenty of time to see it and respond and if I knew there was a good possibility they wouldn't see it in it, I'd CALL THEM!!!!

People just become more and more lazy because they think just because they hit the "send" button on their email that the message they sent automatically will be seen.

You know your car is truly cool...

March 8th, 2009 (11:12 pm)

current mood: amused

... when you drive past a group of 4 year olds and all of them shout "COOOOOL!" and "WOWWW!" as they point and wave at your car.

Everyone says a cool car is one that is defined by adults... I think the real "cool" cars are ones that kids look at and think are. :)

New Job!

February 24th, 2009 (10:51 pm)

current mood: cheerful

So! I realized I didn't say anything about my new job!

I had an interview on Tuesday last week to see about a position at Angell as a Surgery Tech and everything just so happened to work out and everything and they offered me the job!!

So, I was unemployed for about 4 days, but still, I am wholly grateful I have a job. I still collect some unused vacation time for my old job, but yay for new job! :)

Why is everything a big production?

February 24th, 2009 (04:22 pm)

current mood: thoughtful

Why does everything these days seem to evolve from some intimate, friendly gathering into a ginormous big production or "monster".

A friend mentioned in conversation the other day that an event she originally participated when it first started and now 6 years later, she is refusing to attend for the sheer principal that the original event was never supposed to mutate into the big fanfare it is today. I never thought of it in that light before and it makes me wonder about other things we exacerbate the situation into something bigger than it was ever meant to be.

What ever happened to keeping some things simple? Why is everything evolved into something complicated? It makes me wonder.

Sheena's theory of Evolution - Or lack thereof

February 13th, 2009 (12:29 pm)

current mood: thoughtful

So, I have a theory... Granted it is based mainly on observation, my basic biological understanding of the universe, and the principles of evolution according to microbiology and Darwin's theory of evolution (which while I still subscribe to the basic principles of being a Christian, I can totally understand how dinosaurs and all that came to exist as well).

I believe that as a human race, we have completely and utterly fudged up our own evolution as a species. Now, the basic principles of evolution mainly suggests that the strong survive and the weak (both physically and genetically) die off to rid the species gene pool of strong genetic makeups. We went wrong with natural evolution as soon as we invented/created modern medicine. Almost in the basic forms of vaccines. Now, don't get me wrong, in order for modern society to exist the way WE want it to, we need them. But, from a genetically viable and stable continuation of robust and strong genetic traits, we have flushed all those down the drain. We no longer have natural selection and evolution in the basic sense like the rest of the wild/natural world still lives by.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want my family and those I can about to just die because I don't think they are genetically viable... heck, I probably would have died somewhere along the way too, but that is against what exactly I mean and am trying to get across. We keep babies around that are BORN with heart conditions/half a heart after a full term pregnancy. In the natural world, this is natural selection, a genetic defect in the DNA would be removed from the pool if the newborn didn't survive such a SIGNIFICANT defect. But with modern medicine, we keep them alive and give them a fighting chance and in most cases they live on to reproduce and hence carry on  the genetic weakness, even if their own children don't express the phenotype. This is just one of MANY examples, but what I am just trying to get at is we are polluting our own evolutionary gene pool for much much future generations (i.e. hundreds of years down the road).

I also hold on to the belief that in many generations later, but sooner than "evolution", we will become infertile much like in the movie Children of Men. All women lost the ability to become pregnant and bear children. There are SOOOO many families now out there that use infertility almost as if it is standard procedure for starting a family. Just think about it, the genetics are dictating that you naturally cannot conceive children, which basically means evolution is telling you not to carry on your genes for some reason. Yet, with the help of modern medicine again, we unnaturally cause women to become pregnant and  give birth to not just ONE child that carries those reproductive weak genes, but multiples of 4 or 6 or even 8! Where does this make logic for the sake of genetics?

I'm not saying I believe that people shouldn't do infertility treatments... but it just put the query out into the world...

The bigger questions are about what are we supposed to do about it and if we really want to?

Money Money Money Money...

January 26th, 2009 (12:13 pm)

current mood: angry

Why does the world only revolve around money?

You work yourself to death over money, you cry over money, you fight over money, you kill over money...

I hate it. Money just makes you and everyone else feel worthless. It starts wars and it ends relationships. Never is it worth it... and yet, we all still NEED it to survive... not cool. :-/

I think if money didn't exist, a lot of our problems would end or at least greatly diminish.

Voting Today

November 4th, 2008 (08:54 pm)

current mood: anxious

I voted for Barrack Obama today for President.

I was pretty undecided up until the final weeks before the election today. For many different reasons, but I feel it was my duty as a US citizen to vote for someone instead of no one.

I am watching the news networks right now to watch and see who will be the next president. We need a change and quickly. We have been tortures for the past 8 years and finally the country is starting to realize it.

Not that this is any big demographic or official proof, but on my facebook page, everyone's been voting today, which is awesome!

I am looking forward to the outcome...
