On the Other Hand


Isn't It Funny?

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, she had friends.

Once upon a time, she was rarely at home.

Once upon a time, she was cream of the crop.

Once upon a time, she was queen.

Once upon a time, she was spirited.

Once upon a time, she was never left out.

Once upon a time, she wrote of how happy she was.

Once upon a time, she really was.

But that was Once Upon a Time.

A Reality Show Junkie's Opinion on "Teen Mom"

Original "Teen Mom" cast
Want to know one thing you probably don't know about me?  I am a self proclaimed reality show junkie.  From "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" to "Big Brother", I love them all.  (Okay, I'm lying.  I do not watch them all, but you're picking up what I'm throwing down, right?  Good!)  One of my favorite reality shows, however, would have to be "Teen Mom".  By this I am including both "Teen Mom" and "Teen Mom 2". 

My personal opinion is that this show and the girls involved face a lot of undeserved criticism.  Many people believe that this show ENCOURAGES teenage girls to get pregnant, which I think is absolutely false.  Most of the people who make this claim have probably not watched one episode of the show.  While I would not recommend it for little girls, I definitely would recommend it for appropriate aged teenage girls.

Together, "Teen Mom" and "Teen Mom 2" follow a total of eight girls throughout their everyday lives as teen moms.  It shows their struggles and strives, and the discrimination they face, but the show also celebrates their victories.  It shows the different outcomes of being a teenage mom - from adoption, to a ton of family support, to very little family support.  I think it is both an educational/informative show, and a persuasive show.  It educates girls, but it also persuades them to be safe and smart while making decisions that could potentially affect the outcomes of there futures.

What do you think about "Teen Mom"?

Truth Is...

Ain't that the truth.  Some of you may have been reading my blog for a few weeks, months.  A select few of you may even have been reading it for years.  So, I bid you the question:  Do you feel that you know me because you have read a few things about me, shared a few pictures with you? 

The answer is no.  You do not know me (unless you have met me in real life of course).  Don't get me wrong - there are many of you I would LOVE to meet, LOVE to be friends with.  I sincerely like some of the people whose blogs I have read, and people who have commented on my blog throughout the years.  With that said, it does not mean I know you. 

I know the people who I have shared secrets with, ridden in the passenger seat by, went to see a movie with.  I know the people who have sucked up to me, put me down, and made me feel inferior.  I know the people who I have been in pictures with, the people who have given me hugs, the people who have annoyed the crap out of me.  I do not, however, know you.  It may be a sad fact, but it's true.

I can think I know you, and you can think you know me, but that fact of the matter is we really do not know each other.  For all you know, I could be a 56 year old man from Antarctica in a civil union with a man who hates beavers.  Granted, I am not.  I do not even know if Antarctica allows civil unions, but the thing is you only know little snippets about me that I have told you.  You know nothing more, nothing less.  Think about this as your are enjoying the internet and social networking.  Though it is fun and a way to make friends, you need to see people, places, things, and ideas for what they really are.

Seems Like Only Yesterday

"For the life of me I cannot remember
 What made us think we were wise
 And we'd never compromise
 For the life of me I cannot believe
 We'd ever die for these sins
 We were merely freshman"

Queen of the Weird

Queen of the World
Or Queen of the Weird?

Beard with a lady
Or lady with a beard?

Questions no answers
Answers make no sense

A penny for your thoughts
No need to mince

Words of a feather
Pods of a pea

They go together
Like the bee's knees

You are funny
And so are your bones

You make me laugh
You make me moan

Silly person
Let's be alive

Cheers to us!
Low and high five!
