Happy holidays to everyone! Christmas is less than one week away. Here is what I am hoping for Christmas this year. Can people just stop with the daily “selfies” already. We have become such a narcissistic society. Do people forget what they look like from day to day? Do their looks change every day? I don’t get it. Maybe I’m just too old school, or wait not insanely vain. I use to laugh when I would get my mother’s annual Christmas card with a photo of herself inside. I would call her up to ask her if she thought I had forgotten what she looked like. Needless to say, mom was very vain.
Politics have gotten so ugly lately. I don’t have the same political views as some of my siblings, and my brother is going off the deep end with his. I may not like his views, but I don’t rant and rave whenever I talk to him on the phone like he does with me. I just tell him we’ll agree to disagree, I think he just likes to argue, which is kind of sad.
I think deep down we all want the same things. A decent job, good schools, healthy children and a planet that will be here for years to come. I wish big money would get the hell out of politics. Women’s rights are being trampled day by day. I hope in my lifetime I will earn the same as a man for doing the same job. Is that too much to ask? I do wish people would take responsibility for their own actions. I get so sick of people whining about everything being someone else’s fault. Here’s a news flash for you, get up off your ass and change your life. No one is going to do it for you.
