This is where I will post about things that happen in my day to day life. I call it my treasure chest. I treasure my memories. (:
So I recently received a message regarding breast cancer awareness on Facebook. This is something that personally irritates me beyond belief.
The deal behind the chain message is to only share the secret with FEMALES. All FEMALES should then post a facebook status for all of your friends to see, saying something like “6 weeks and I’m craving candy” to spark people’s attention. Then when they ask why you posted that.. YOU DON’T TELL THEM WHY. The message says this:
Ok pretty ladies, it’s that time of year again, in support of breast cancer awareness!! Remember last year so many people took part that it made national news and, the constant updating of status reminded everyone why we’re doing this and helped raise awareness!! Do NOT tell any males what the status’ mean, keep them guessing!! And please copy and paste (in a message )this to all your female friends to see if we can make a bigge…r fuss this year than last year!!! I did my part… now YOUR turn!
The idea is to choose the month you were born and the day you w ere born. Pass this on to the girls only and lets see how far it reaches around. The last one about the bra went round allovr the world. So you’ll write… I’m (your birth month) weeks and I’m craving (your birth date)!!! as your status.
Example: Feb 14th= I’m 2 weeks and craving Choclolate mints!!
Days of the month: 1-Skittles 2-Starburst 3-Kit-Kat 4-M&M’s 5-Galaxy 6-Crunchie 7-Dairy Milk 8-Lollipop 9-Peanut Butter Cups 10-Meat Balls 11-Twizzlers 12-Bubble Gum 13-Hershey’s Kisses 14-Chocolate Mints 15-Twix 16-Resse’s Fastbreak 17-Fudge 18-Cherry Jello 19-Milkyway 20-Pickels 21-Creme Eggs 22-Skittles 23-Gummy Bears 24-Gummy Worms 25-Strawberry Pop Tarts 26-Starburst 27-Mini Eggs 28-Kit-Kat Chunkie 29-Double Chocolate Chip Chrunchy Cookies 30-Smarties 31-Chocolate Cake
Will someone please RIDDLE ME as to why you would post a status to RAISE AWARENESS AND SUPPORT and then not tell people what it represents.You didn’t care yesterday about posting a status to support breast cancer or lung cancer or any of that. The truth is, you didn’t care about showing your support until everyone else decided to post a facebook status about it. It isn’t funny or cute. And why only once a year? Why not every day?
Why don’t you show REAL support for cancer? My Aunt Linda died of Lung cancer, and I didn’t post a status telling everyone I was pregnant to raise awareness and then not tell them that that is what it is for. My family & I, instead decided to host a 5K Run/Walk to show our support for out loved one that lost a tragic battle.
So how about you stop following those trends. Get off your couch and DO SOMETHING. or even stay on your couch. Find a non profit cancer research organization and donate to them. Donate a dollar, donate 5, donate anything. But I promise you, your facebook status didn’t do much.(1 year ago) 2 notes
Today I finished the second week of my EMT class. The class has turned out to be more of a challenge than I expected, but it keeps me busy for sure. The class is definitely an enjoyable one. My instructor is hilarious and keeps us entertained for sure. But one thing that entirely becomes a distraction is..
I do not know the real name of this particular individual. This guy is something else. Now, I’m not one to usually, publicly, make fun of or judge others. but this is just a funny story. I do not know if this guy has some kind of mental disability, schizophrenia, or if he is just weird. On the first day of class, ourinstructor instanlty named him Binky, which he hates. This name was derived from the last name “Binkowski”. When our teacher began to call him Binky, he made it clear that he preferred the name “Kow”. And Mr. Ed just replied, “Okay, I’ll call you Binky”. That it how it has been from there out.
Now, I used to sit next to this guy, but quickly moved seats after witnessing some of the following things he does. First, he consistantly is talking to himself. Never aloud, but talks to himself, or people in his mind. I would always look over and see him mouthing words to no one but himself. Second, last Thursday we were taking a test in class when Binky picks up his test and leans back in his chair. Two people behind him almost immediately started laughing, and I could not quite understand what was so funny about the matter until I see him flip his test around. He had been holding his test UPSIDE DOWN staring at for for about a good minute. He continued the process of flipping his test up and down for about five minutes. Third, he removes his hat, and puts it back on every couple minutes consistantly though the class.
This last Tuesday, I moved seats. Found myself a comfortable new seat next to my new friend Jared! Now sitting a couple rows behind Binky, I noticed him wearing his shirt, inside-out. A collared, polo shirt. Inside-out. How do you not notice that?
And finally, today we were taking a break after going over our tests. A majority of our class was sitting out in the lobby of the building scattered around just talking. I turn to look at Binky as two people sitting at my table start laughing. Sure enough, he is almost, boxing with himself, or as I call them, his imaginary friends. Almost as if he were hitting a speed bag very slowly.
Anyways, I do not know what is going on with him, but something’s up.
