So, the new job has been going amazingly well! I have been blessed enough to work for a wonderful woman who I happen to have a great relationship with to begin with. So, if you ever have the choice, I highly recommend it!

Anyways, what’s been going on lately? Apparently, all the news has been Paul Ryan oriented recently. The VP debates, the soup kitchen ‘incident’, and the hoards of women practically drooling over his “athletic physique” after a shirtless shot was released by TMZ. If you could see me right now, I’m shaking my head and rolling my eyes. I don’t care how physically fit you are. I will never find a man of any aesthetic significance attractive if they oppose women’s rights. I mean, that has always been deal breaker numero uno. Luckily, even while living in the south I was fortunate enough  to find a man as left as I am.

Oh, and the soup kitchen incident? Well, let’s just say that Mr. Ryan couldn’t be bothered enough to actually volunteer. Instead, he barged his way into an already closed soup kitchen against the owner’s wishes in northeast Ohio for what could only be described as a photo opportunity. He busied  himself helping the staff with many tasks, such as cleaning an already washed pan, and looking handsomely charitable in the process.  I mean, how disgusting is that? As an HUS major, part of our final semester is field placement, and we’re required to take advantage of volunteer opportunities at all stages of our studies. People put hard work into places like this, and to take credit for something you actually didn’t do is sickening.

What’s worse is that the soup kitchen runs on private donations, and for that reason chooses to remain party-neutral. Because of this incident, the owner is fearful that some of that funding may be cut by opposing parties that think the soup kitchen is in support of the Republican party. In fact, the owner clearly states that he could not afford to take any cuts and remain in operation. So, this little stunt may cost many homeless and less fortunate individuals their only guaranteed meal each day.

Classy, Paul Ryan.

So, does anyone intend to catch the Vice Presidential Debate tomorrow? Unfortunately, I may be working well into the night and miss it. When I get home, I have to get my FAFSA paperwork in order to turn in early. So, I’m quite displeased. I imagine it may go much like the previous one? Is everyone registered? TELL ME THINGS! Lol. 😄

Here’s the schedule, in case you don’t have it.

PS: I fully intend to touch on the shooting of Malala Yousafzai; but, I need time to collect my thoughts. This is something that has deeply saddened me, and I do not want to make a statement that I do not feel is worthy of such a remarkable young woman.

Also, this month is Break The Silence on Domestic Violence month (or Domestic Violence Awareness Month)! To take a stand against domestic violence, like this page on Facebook, and donate if you’re able. If you don’t have money to spare, you can always take a stand by educating others on domestic violence, and sharing resources with the public on your own social media account. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors, and perhaps someone you know is suffering in silence.

Side Note: I apologize for not posting for a few days. I recently accepted a job offer, and things have been hectic. Not to mention the difficulties of having a parent battling cancer, dealing with college, and maintaining a healthy long-term live in relationship. Oh, and the cats… one mustn’t forget the cats. =^.^= Things should even out soon, and it will be business as usual! Find out what day is your deadline for your own state! And be sure to share that information with your friends and family!
