I hate libertarianism

So this is a bit out of left field considering I normally use this blog to post videos about The X Files and complain about my job and tell stories about the weird things students say to me. But I just want everyone to know this.

Libertarians are terrible people. They only give a shit about amassing and protecting their own wealth. They put the right to property of a few over the right of many to live decently. They complain about the government trampling on their right to have more money when there are children living through painful, unnecessary, grinding poverty who will never have any property to protect. To a libertarian, your only value is the things you own. If you own nothing, you are worth nothing. Libertarianism prioritizes a political theory written by a privileged, propertied white man from hundreds of years ago over the very real need and suffering of millions of people. So fuck you if you claim to be a libertarian.

That's all.

You guys

I'm really obsessed with The X Files right now. Also, David Duchonvy, obviously. Like, what was I doing with my life in 1994? (Wasting my time, clearly.*)

*Also I was 4 years old.

We're gonna make it to the beach on time

How do people live in places besides California? I can't even comprehend.

If you close your eyes does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?

Coming back home is never quite the same once your friends have moved away from their parents' houses down the street to their own grown-up houses. I still come back to town like I did in college, staying in my old bedroom. But everyone else is gone and they don't have a winter break anymore.

Such a California girl

The only church I need is running along the beach on Sunday morning, then hearing this song on the radio. Fucking spiritual.

I'm dreaming of a sunny, 75˚ Christmas

So it's almost time for winter break, somehow. This semester has been amazing and I think I am more committed to becoming a better teacher than I was this time last year. And I love these amazing little beans and their beautiful, bright faces. But at the same time, I AM SO READY FOR A BREAK, SOME OF THESE KIDS AND THEIR SHIT, I SWEAR.

Also, I am not digging the cold weather. I hate driving with ice on the roads. Like, Missouri, can you get your shit together and salt the roads? Jesus fucking christ.

So let's make things physical

All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me
I am so into this song right now, it's ridiculous. I need to stop listening to sexy music. IT'S JUST FRUSTRATING.
