Photo Tag

Some of my friends have done this photo tag, including Nikki, so I thought I would do it too. You go to your pictures, pick your fourth folder, and then post the fourth picture in the folder here.

This picture is of Myself (right) and my sister (left). We were bored one day and were playing around on Photo Booth. Gotta love Macs. :) I was attempting to bite her and we were laughing too hard that it didn't work well.

Only 8 more days until the Election! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

Ask any racer, any real racer. It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning.

I am so excited for Fast & Furious! This is the first trailer, the movie opens June 12, 2009! Its supposed to be after 2 Fast 2 Furious and before Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster all reprise their roles from the first film. No sign of Leon or Vince though so maybe Vince really did die. Sung Kang is also in the movie, playing Han.
Its so far away but my brother and I are so ecstatic! Anyway, here is the first trailer. ENJOY! :)

Whatever You Like

Its hard not to think about Politics everyday, at least for me. Especially when its so close to such an important election. Its less than TWO WEEKS! I'm so excited and I'm really hoping, wishing, and praying that Barack Obama will be the declared winner. I don't want something to happen like in 2000 with Al Gore and George Bush. Obama is in the lead right now, but I'm not going to be too cocky in saying he's a shoe in. I really hope he is though. I will be so upset if he doesn't win.

On a lighter note, I'm going to be an Election Poll Worker on November 4th! I am so excited! Its a wonderful opportunity and I really want that experience. I just wish I could wear my Obama pin. :) Its going to be a really LONG day but I'm excited to help out!

I'm also excited its going to be Halloween soon! I'm going to carve my pumpkin with an Obama face stencil. My sister is thinking about carving hers' into either Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. We're pretty political and I'm so happy that we are. I think its really important to be actively participating in politics. There are incredible issues in this world that need to be improved. I'm obviously voting for Obama and Biden, but I'm also voting on the local issues! The local issues are essential too. I'm voting for Bob Springmeyer! I think he's amazing! If you don't know who he is and you're a Utahn, you need to look him up!

I was really annoyed last night when I received 3 smear emails from a friend about Obama. The information in these emails are completely untrue and I really wish people would do their own research and get the facts. This really upset me because there are so many people in this world that want to spread these rumors about candidates. The people who send these out must think the American people aren't able to think for themselves, and sometimes that's true. I really just hope that we can overcome things like that. We're not stupid, we can research ourself and get information from valid sources. It also bothered me because a few days ago, his best friend had messaged me and asked me, "You know your vote doesn't count, right?" and that really set me off. Anyone who thinks their vote doesn't count is wrong. If everyone thought that way, and they didn't vote, nothing would change. I don't get people.

I'd like to add that I'm so glad my sister invited me to join TwentySomethingBloggers. I've made some friends on there including this girl, Ashley, whose blog I really enjoy. She said something on one of her posts that I loved and completely agree with.
"My liberal politics are not separate from my Christian faith; they are motivated by my Christian faith."
One last thing, I find it odd how the LDS Church is getting involved with Proposition 8 in California. My friend, Holly had informed me that there is this group on Facebook for Proposition 8 and they want everyone to fast for this cause. We both think this is not a reason to fast for. I think the group is ridiculous.

I think that is all for today. I'm excited to work at an Election Center on Nov. 4th! YAY! :) I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week. This title was inspired by the song by T.I.

"We must not believe the many, who say that only free people ought to be educated, but we should rather believe the philosophers who say that only the educated are free." - Epictetus

“America's story is one of expanding opportunity and suffrage, and one of our fundamental principles is that every eligible citizen is entitled to cast his or her vote and have that vote counted,” - Donna Brazile

I really like Donna Brazile. She's amazing. My sister posted a blog about her, here. She made this awesome speech about Racism, you should definitely watch it.
