Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Time:8:40 am.

so every year, i consider my new year's eve to determine how i play out the new year approaching.

what i have decided with this new year is that i need to change just about everything in my life.
i've never really had a new year's resolution before, but i think i have a few for '09.
1.  promise to always stay true to thy self
2.  do so much better in school
3.  time to kick some people out of my life
4.  & welcome as many people as possible into it. (while keeping good judgment of character)

i can feel that 2009 is going to be a year of a lot of changes, of great changes, & of permanent changes.
for better or worse, they're going to happen.

i'm excited for '09.  i think it's gonna be one hell of a trip.
but i'm soooooooo ready to take it.

Time:3:38 pm.
I've posted this before.  I think I need to post it again.

Right now, I just want everyone to watch a movie called "An Inconvenient Truth"
It's a documentary by Al Gore.  Honestly, I think they should show it in schools.
& have tests on it to make sure everyone was paying attention.
It's a very big wake up call, and it's very much needed.

Right now there is a hole in the ozone layer that is larger than North America.
For some of you who may not completely understand what an ozone layer is,
it's the Earth's atmosphere.  It acts as a shield.  It allows certain amounts of sunlight into our atmosphere
& reflects certain amounts out.  It stabilizes the Earth's temperature.
It's made up of a substance called CO2, or Carbon Dioxide.
CO2 is produced by our lungs, our car's exhaust systems, power plants, etc.
It's absorbed by plants.  Life is a system of balance.
Too much Carbon Dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere creates a green house effect.. like on planet Venus.

You may already know that our planet is experiencing Global Warming.
Everyone might think, "Yeah, Global Warming.  Summer all year around."
No.  Global warming is a serious matter that is effecting our lives.
It's not something that we can say, "Oh well, I won't be alive for it to effect me, so I don't have to worry."
At the rate our generation is destroying the Earth, it will effect us.  It already is.
The icecaps ont op of Greenland and at the polar caps of the Earth have already begun to melt away at an alarming rate.
If it continues at this rate, it may be completely gone within centuries.
If it continues to increase, it may be within decades.

Ice caps melting, what does that mean?
That means a rise in sea level.  If the ice cap on top of Greenland melts, that's a 20 ft increase.
If the ice cap in West Antarctica melts, that's a 20 ft increase.
At the rate we're going, both are melting.  
Both?  Well, that's 40 ft increase of sea level.
The average human is maybe 5 1/2 ft.. so you're talking about 7 1/4 people high.
That, my friend, is A LOT of water.

Florida would have to be evacuated, Louisiana, Mississippi, parts of China, major cities throughout Europe.
When Hurricane Katrina happened and New Orleans needed to be abandoned, a couple hundred thousand people had to leave.
The pandemonium that was caused by evacuating a hundred thousand people was ridiculous.
Now imagine what would happen when hundreds of millions of people need to be evacuated.

By the Earth heating, animals are becoming endangered.
Polar animals, such as penguins, polar bears, sea lions, and many other creatures are losing their homes.
Humans are causing global warming, therefore, indirectly, we're also killing these animals, and ourselves.

This IS NOT a problem that CANNOT be fixed.
With the right care & the right steps, global warming can be reduced.
If not, well, the entire human race will end up wiping itself out.
& there will be another ice age.

How does global warming cause an ice age?
When the ice caps melt, the water produced is still cold, & it flows into the Atlantic current.
The currents of our oceans are responsible for wind currents & precipitation.
Eventually, there comes cold winds, freezing rain, & hello ice age.
Except this time, Mammoth's aren't running to the equator, humans are.
BUT WAIT!  we can't get there because it's all under water.  goodbye, human race.

If we act now, within 60 years we can get the hole back to the size it was in the 80's.
It might not seem that good.  60 years to repair 20 years of damage.
It's a start.  & that's all we can ask.

What can YOU do to help?
It's quite simple actually.
Unplug things when you're done using them.
Shut off the lights when you leave a room.
Quit smoking.
Plant trees, or flowers. (they look pretty AND they absorb CO2)
Take shorter showers with a lower temperature water.
Buy hybrid cars.
If you need to go somewhere within a short distance, walk or ride a bike.
If you're going somewhere far, car pool, or take a bus.

You'll see a lot of what you can do to save the Earth, benefits you also.
So set an example, and spread the word.
If you can get even ONE person to be more conscious of what they're doing, it was a success.

Most importantly, just watch the movie.
Al Gore knows a lot more about this than I do.
Even if I didn't convince you to be more concerned,
even if you don't care enough to be concerned,
I ask you, please, watch it.  You won't regret it.

Time:6:22 pm.
im feeling very mellow today.  it's nice :)
things are going well, i suppose.
my first semester at college is almost over,
& i'm very unpleased to announce that i did terrible.
--i tried.

i got a new job.  more like three...all in one.
didn't plan for that :\
this next week has potential to be amazing.

joel comes home tuesday & i couldnt be more excited.
going to dark star on wednesday.
thanksgiving on thursday!
& then spending friday night at my cabin.
--which is a plus bc i can give thanks for having chris in my life.
& i'm definately going to kill something up there.
because that would make him proud haha :)
i really miss the way things were in the summer.
i miss seeing kolodg every fucking day of my life.
i miss having my brother no more than 10 ft away at any point in time.
& i really miss being able to drink beer around an open fire w 3 of the best men to ever grace this planet.

but...i can't go back in time, right?  right.
(unless someone has a time machine...hit me up!)
until then!  all i can do is smile towards my memories
& look forward to my future.

my eyes are open wide & my smile is streched across my face.
my head is up & my shoulders are back.
i'm remaining optimistic & i'm ready to face the world.
i like the direction my life is in right now.
--the only challenge now is staying on track.

i miss him soo much it's terrifying.

when i go to visit him, there's a bench next to where he lays.
but instead, i lay next to him.  & i hug the ground.  & i cry.  a lot.

...they said i was one of the last things on his mind.
...they said i was one of the last people he talked about.
...they said he was so proud of me.
i don't know if that comforts or upsets me.

i do know that he's always on my mind.
every single second of every single day.

i know that i would give my life for him to have his back.
i know that he was a much better person than i will ever be.
i know that he was my motivation to do well.

i need him to come back.
i wish miracle's were real.
i wish he were still here.

Subject:it's something free that means a lot to me...when i'm with my friends, i feel home.
Time:1:04 am.
i love this summer.
i love that high school is over.

i love that i'm going to college in a few months.
i already had my orientation last week.
..got my classes and student id.

& i love my friends.
i love that we've grown closer
& not further apart.
& i love that no matter what we do,
where we are, or who we're with
we always have a good time.

i'm blessed.  friends like us are scarce.
we have each other's back,
even when we're wrong.
but we'll still call each other out on it.
never any drama, unless it's instigated
we can get pissed every night,
& love each other every morning.
anyone of us could disappear for months,
come back, & it's like we never left.
we love each other, and more importantly,
we respect each other.
.....& that's the way it should be.

i keep good company.
my family, and my friends...
we're like super glue.
you can't break our bond.
sorry, kids.
