Once more with feeling

While I should be focusing on creating genius in the form of a research paper on BART (Bonding & Relaxation Techniques), I am instead lusting over items at anthropologie and listening to music. This inspiration is critical to the writing process. Uh-huh, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Whatelse, whatelse...

I have a practical interview at a spa today for a therapist role. That's some exciting stuff. It would be part-time a couple of days a week. Fingers crossed. We shall see.

And I have had a migraine for the last week or so and I have convinced myself that it's a tumor. So, there you go.

A great weekend

i heart you Vampire Weekend (more than friends).

Oh, and Aaron and I are going on a date this evening sans children. Happiness, bliss.

The Five Million Dollar Woman

So I'm reading CNN headlines and enjoying some tea at work and I come across this article about Hillary donating $5M to her campaign.

$5M dollars?!

Ok, so I will be the first to admit that I am not one to often follow politics. However, I spent a great deal of time researching Clinton vs. Obama for the primary. I do believe that if I don't do something about issues that are close to my heart then I have no room to complain about them. So, I'm trying. Making the effort.

This article left me with a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.

First off, how does she have that much money? And secondly, if you care so much -- and really this goes for all candidates and the process in general -- about universal health care, the environment, a poor economy, the huddled masses, etc. why waste copious amounts money standing in corn fields and kissing babies when those MILLIONS of dollars can help someone eat, get prenatal care and put a roof over their heads?

We should be ashamed of ourselves.
