‘Dropped the ball’ is the understatement of the century. I couldn’t bring myself to watch Nassar’s sentencing hearing this week (until the actual sentencing). I watched the first 4 days cringing and holding back tears while young ladies face the monster who sexually abused them. … Continue reading How did this happen?
Wow! I am writing this a year after I attended the Women’s March in Atlanta on January 21, 2017 Let Us March. A day that changed my outlook and changed my life. As the year progressed I have tried to narrow down my options to one issue to spend my time and money on. The issue that means the most to me. I quickly found out that not only do they all mean a lot to me, but they are all under attack. This administration is making America white again, and that pisses me off. Women, minorities, education, environment, land, voting, Planned Parenthood, and others are in serious jeopardy. I have spent time and money on educating myself and helping different organizations fight for everything I believe in. And although I do not have a lot of money to spend, I am fully aware it is better spent on something I believe in than materialistic shit.
I will do more.
I vow that this year I will be better and I will work harder. For myself and for everyone else. Education is vital in understanding what is happening and what is at risk. I whole-heartedly believe this is a time in our nation that women will look back on and be proud.
We work hard. We speak out. We don’t give a damn what people think.
I am so proud to be here, in this time, fighting for equal pay, equal rights, and equal opportunity. Women are the future, and you’re either with us or against us.
We will win.
Still hanging in there? All you ex-athletes who are trying to become something greater. Those who are trying to achieve more after sport. Those essentially starting from the bottom of something totally and completely new. Recently I have realized that my peak age was not … Continue reading Identity Crisis? Part II
“I woke up Wednesday morning feeling…what’s the word? Is there a word? I’m not sure there is a word to describe it. Tuesday night, I was in shock. I was angry. I was devastated. In 16 years I have never felt these feelings after an … Continue reading Let Us March
In a world where everyone is just sooo busy this seems to be extremely accurate… There are very few people in my life who would meet me for dinner with a couple days’ notice and not cancel at the last second. There are even fewer that … Continue reading Priorities
“First of all, people are much more unhappy than one thinks…and there is no such thing as a grown up. Everyone is destined to experience not only the exhilaration of life, but also its inevitable darkness: disillusionment, aging, illness, isolation, loss, meaninglessness, painful choices, and … Continue reading Tragic but Realistic
I haven’t been writing a whole lot lately. I have replaced writing with reading, praying, and hoping things begin to fall into place for my precisely laid out plan for my future. I needed to take some time to fix myself. A good friend told … Continue reading What The Future Holds
