30 Day Challenge: Day 23




Day 23, write a letter to someone.
I decided to write to Bernie Sanders.

Dear Mr. Sanders,

I really wish you were the Presidential Candidate :( I voted for you because I like your policies and ideas and I believe  that with you in the Oval Office, we could have gotten a lot done and improved this country. But no, we're stuck with either Hitler the second (Dump-Head) and Hilary who cheated her way to victory >:( Also, don't agree with various things she's done (like, she agrees with fracking, was for the wars we are in now, she called black men predators (even though white men are more likely to shoot and kill people) and apparently she mocked a rape victim :( >:( Also, her and others made fun of female voters for you, saying that we were doing it to 'get boys' (FUCK YOU, GLORIA STEINEM, FOR SAYING THAT BS). I will vote for Hilary because I prefer her to Dump-Head, but still....I worry that we won't get as far as we would have (and if she wins, it makes me sad that the first female President of the United States will have gotten there by cheating and not by her own merit...yeah, that will set us back a lot, thanks a whole fucking lot >:(). I do plan on voting again in the midterms and get more liberals and progressives into Congress so we can get some actual change done (GUN CONTROL, FIX THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THE POLICE, SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT, END RAPE CULTURE, PREVENT RACISM/SEXISM/HOMOPHOBIA/TRANSPHOBIA, STOP THE WAR ON WOMEN, ETC). You really should have won, sir, because I know that most of the youth wanted you to win, as did many of the women and minorities. Most people I know outside of older democrats preferred you and don't like Hilary. I hope you continue to do your work in the Senate like you have been doing and that we are able to make more progressive changes and finally leave the 50s behind us. Maybe you'll be our Vice President. I think I'd like that- at least, that way, you'd be in a position to do some more good.
Best,
Shena Tokala/M

30 Day Challenge: Day 20




Well, since I've only been to one concert, I'll also mention (like my friend Arda did on her blog) musicals I've seen (and done). :)

I've only been to ONE official concert (and a few small things that were kinda dumb). The actual concert I went to was for Trans-Siberian Orchestra and it was really cool :) I even have a shirt from it :).
I went to a Christian thing with my church but it was the style of religious stuff that I don't like, with the whole obsession with the personal relationship with Jesus, which is something I never related to. I'm a bit more of a deist and believe that God created the world and gave us the ability to chose what we do with free will and that there is no predestination and he doesn't get involved all that much since he doesn't want to control us. But not only was it that, and them not seeming to care about helping others in need like they should, they spouted off some weird adds that I just didn't agree with (and it was all 'abortion holocaust', which was just gross since the Holocaust was a really horrible thing and while I understand someone being against it (and women can be pro-life if they want, since most of them have uteruses and it affects them) don't compare that to people getting gassed and slowly starved and worked to death in concentration camps. I saw pictures of the Holocaust, it was a truly awful thing and is not something to compare things to, unless you are talking about similar things like the gulags in Russia or the way African-Americans were treated during slavery or how the Native Americans were treated throughout history; I yelled at the screen and stormed out. And THEN they were all worried about getting Bibles to the poor instead of, you know, things like FOOD and clean drinking WATER that they need to survive. Oh brother :p ).
Sorry for the tangent, the whole experience made me mad. I DID like seeing Skillet, though (but the sound system was pretty awful).

As for musicals, I have seen

Wicked
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Floyd Collins
The Phantom of the Opera (online)
Into the Woods (on DVD)
Clue
You're A Good Man Charlie Brown

I've been in
Sleepy Hollow
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
Through the Looking-Glass
Les Miserables
Godspell
Suessical Jr.
Annie
Into the Woods Jr.
Beauty and the Beast Jr.
Thirteen

30 Day Challenge: Day 19



I'm not going to say where I live on here (except that it's in the USA), so instead I'll do some fun fictional places I would like to live.

30 Day Challenge: Day 18







If you've been following me on other social media, you probably know the answer to that. I've been watching Supernatural for the last four years and I finally got caught up for this past season. The show is getting a 12th season and I'm currently very obsessed with it. The show is enjoyable, well-written, with awesome acting, characters, and world-building. The tight focus makes it even more fun and the cast is so interactive with their fans, which gives us a lot of material to work with on and off the show. It also has good continuity and a pretty good fandom (even if I'm on the fringes, like I always pretty much am). 

I especially enjoy, like I mentioned above, the characters and their development. We've got to see them over the course of 11 seasons and they've grown and changed and matured so much. It's been a blast and I look forward to seeing more of them all :) 

The show's mythology is also unique and is a mesh of many beliefs and folklore. I especially enjoyed that they brought my religion into it- it was really interesting and fascinating and I appreciated how they handled it (for the most part). 

Looking forward to season 12! :D
