Probably an angering post to most of you.

Can I just say that I am so sick of all of this 'Vote No' business?  I understand it is an important issue, and I understand that it is potentially life changing to certain people.  However, I am really sick of being told to vote no.  Someone from my school wants people to write to the administration saying that our school should publicly say they are against the amendment.  This infuriated me.  They argued that it was part of our school's values to be against the proposition.  If you actually think about it, we are a lutheran school, meaning is it against our values.  Now I'm Christian and I am not against gay marriage, but I am so sick of being told that people are horrible, hateful people if they vote against it.  Liberals are forcing their ideas down everyone else's throats and telling everyone that their liberal thought on the matter is the only proper way to think about it in a kind and humanely way.  Well, the reason people get so sick of super conservatives is the exact same thing.  Most liberals are so "open minded" that they're completely closed minded to other ideas, especially since they don't just disagree, but they make people feel like they're awful, terrible, horrendous people for thinking something different than they do.  I hate politics not because I want to ignore the issues, but because no one in this world is mature enough to agree to disagree.
Also, its not fair that everyone and their mother wants to ban someplace like Chic-fil-A, a non political company, for having a political thought.  Now it would be different if Obama announced something that he was against and we all threw a fit, but is Chic-fil-A really going to change American policy?  No.  They are going to make your food for you.
We're allowed to have our own separate thoughts.  Stop acting like yours are the only ones that are correct.

A Thought on Friendship

Something that all people entering young adulthood need to learn (usually the hard way) is that you need to learn who is good enough to be in your life.  As mean as it sounds, sometimes you really just have to cut out the people who are bad for you in your life.  However, most people focus on the cutting people out part.  I've come to realize that a lot of it is about who you bring in to your life in the first place.  I have amazing friends, but I do believe that God puts everyone in your life for a reason.  So, when you meet people who have the same morals, beliefs, and goals as you, you should really try to use their positive influence to your advantage.  That sounds awful, but I've come to realize that I enjoy spending time with and having conversations with people who are of the same morals, beliefs, and goals as me.  It is so easy to be sucked into something you're not really into if the people around you are doing it.  So instead of focusing on cutting out the negatives in my life, I'm going to focus on the positives.  There is no way to cut out every negative influence in my life, but if I find someone that I think could be an awesome friend who will want to do more with me than drink every weekend, why not try to become friends?  I have amazing friends, don't get me wrong.  I just think that forming friendships and creating bonds with new people isn't a bad thing at all, and integrating new people in with the old, though difficult, can truly make your life easier!
It's late and I'm tired so I don't know if this will make any sense.  It does in my head.

All I really want to say right now is I've met a guy who is the first guy I have ever met and gotten to know who I truly don't feel good enough for.  And I love that, because it means I've finally met someone who is good, kind, and true.
