Ignorant Jerks are EVERYWHERE

Why are some people so damn ignorant? It’s like, really you thought about it and still thought you should say that? Really???

The reason for my annoyance is due to an ad I just read on craigslist.org, a website I go on religiously. I go to find vintage items, or writing gigs and just for the sheer curiosity of knowing what other people give away.

Anyway, there was an ad for a free Spanish Bible and some jackass felt the need to reply to the post. Was his response beneficial to anyone, you may ask? No. It was not. He, for one reason or another, felt that he should share his dumb-ass opinion with the craigslist community.

What did he have to say? I tried to post it here but it was flagged, of course. In a nut shell, he said that the bible as in English and that GOD only replied to prayers in English. Stating that prayers in Spanish were marked as "spam" and that he knew that for a fact. 

Like I said, dumb-ass. It annoyed me sooo much, that I felt the need to post MY opinion. here’s what I posted.

Regarding your uneducated response to God speaking only English…blah blah blah.

If you weren’t so caught up in being prejudice against Spanish culture, than you might discover that God a.k.a. Jesus spoke Hebrew and the Bible was originally made up of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew gospels. Given that those were the dominant languages during his time. Which is why the original gospels have been translated into so many, later developed languages, including English. And in case you didn’t know, he was also Jewish.

So before you try to be little other people, read up on the subject so maybe next time you won’t look like an ass.

Okay, so the magazine that I started freelancing for right before I left Miami is going to have me cover events here in LA…what an awesome way to establish myself in the West Coast right?! I’m so excited. I already have a list of things I’d love to cover, artists that would make nice profiles and bands that I think the world should know. Well, at least the rest of the United States…the mag is national.

Other than that, I’m still getting settled…trying to organize myself and get some more furniture. At least I got my bed right? That was the most important…I think. Next is a desk, then maybe a vanity. Gosh, I’ve always wanted a vanity in my room or in my house. I never really had space before, but now I’m thinking I’m going to take advantage of the extra space in my new room. If I could only decide on layout…

Anyway, I’ve got some painting to do. Spray painting that is 😉 You know me.

Always restoring something old.

Changes

Sometimes life comes at you fast and you don’t have the time to analyze your choices. So you make the first one that comes to mind. It’s may not always seem like the best one, but it will always be your gut instinct. Which, in my opinion, is the best choice you can make. Ever. 

The few times I have gone against my gut, I’ve hit walls. No. More like walked into a demolition site with 20 seconds ’till explosion. Needless to say, it has not been pretty.

This time, while my decision was sudden, it was exactly what my heart wanted…it just didn’t know it yet.   

It all started with the end of my 6 year relationship with a boy I was really never compatible with, but loved deeply. I was about to start working on my B.A. at St. Thomas University and had finally landed a job at a local newspaper when he decided we just weren’t working out anymore. Let’s just say, I never saw that coming.

So I moved across the country to Southern California, to make a clean fresh start. The move wasn’t as hard as I had expected it to be. I mean, I have family here so I wasn’t really leave too much behind besides my friends…and him. The choice at first made me feel like I was losing my mind. how could I just pack up and move 3,000 miles away from the only home I’d ever known??? Did people actually do this? What if I didn’t like it…where would I go?

All these doubts and questions and worries clouded my mind for weeks. Until the day I booked my one-way ticket out of Miami. From the moment I printed my confirmation, this odd calm came over me. Like for the first time in my life I was doing the right thing. I was going to be exactly where I should be. Like, the right place at the right time.

I packed my bags, quit my job, transferred out of school and said "Hellooo City of Angels." And I have to admit, this city is exactly where I should be. Now lets just see, if its ready for a Miami girl like me.
