Lately the weather has been really bad. There has been some flooding around the south and it feels like I’m breathing in water. Today, it was a little different, it was a flash back to the hot summer days that we will no longer have, as if the weather was teasing about fall coming. Normally I hate fall, but this year as it gets cold I feel.
So I guess I need to start from scratch with this new blog. A quick summary of my life currently: I go to school. I work. I volunteer. I do homework. And I squish real life in between all of this. I love being really busy, it keeps me from procrastinating.
Lately I have been a little more closed up than normally. I have a few really close friends, and many people I talk to at school. But ever since I have had that feeling that I am doing something with my life, I have stopped talking as often or a deeply to them. I never have the time for anyone, so its beginning to be the people that I have classes with that I associate with more. This makes me a little sad, I wanted our little group to tighten this year. But ever since everyone has coupled up their priorities have sifted, they no longer want to have lunch all together. They just want to be with their other halves. I guess this is a major issue for me. I just don’t understand why these kids are getting so attached to people they won’t ever see again after graduating. No strings attached makes more sense to me than this web of commitment.
I just have strong opinions about some things and I’m neutral when it comes to other things. It reminds me of a recent essay I wrote. The topic asked for an essay about a current issue in the world, it wanted both sides of it and a personal opinion and solution. I wrote about health care. I hate the idea of universal health care. Doing this is just one step closer to socialism, another thing I am strongly against. I feel that Obama is trying to spread the government’s power. He is spending money that our country does not have. People will try to take advantage of health care, while the government will try to cut back to save money. Sure health care will become affordable to all (there will be no way to keep it from illegals), Obama is just another Robinhood. But isn’t taking from rich still stealing, even if you give it to the poor?
That was a little rant that probably made no sense. I just don’t want to be a government employee in the future, and I am planning on going into medicine. I will be watching this issue closely as it progresses. I just hope that Obama compromises and decides to control insurance premiums instead. Sure it would still be more power for the government, but that would mean that things would continue normally and still be more affordable.
This really wasn’t supposed to become about health care, but I got off track somewhere. I continue the overview of my life later.
