Georgia Law Could Give Death Penalty for Miscarriages.

Allow me to use a single gif to sum up my feelings.

Poland was hit really hard by the death of their president, his wife and ninety other public officials. Watching the week of mourning occur on television and seeing all those people together is...really depressing. The Polish community here in Chicago is just as passionate; they held a morning mass and they're honoring a local artist who was killed in the crash, someone who sought to educate people on the Katyn Forest massacre of 22,000 Poles.

I didn't know much about the president or the country's politics, and it makes me a little embarrassed to admit that, considering I'm mostly Polish. It did inspire me to look more into my cultural background and remind myself of my roots. I'm sure my grandparents would've wanted that.

On a lighter note, I'm off for the week, until I have to go back next Monday. Work today was a little dull, since I worked escalators instead of an aisles, but I preferred that for the day. It was quiet! And the weather was a little chilly, but it wasn't so bad.

I found this meme on my flist, by [livejournal.com profile] bringthefate. I filled it out a few hours ago, but I forgot to post it, so here you go.

A 'You Know You're From The 90s' Meme... )

Glad to see you go. Please let the door hit you in your rambling ass on the way out.

To the people speculating if she's going to run for president, uh, what. Seriously, America, I'd rather have no woman president than this brainless zombie running my country. What's it going to take for people to realize that this ex-governor has no idea what she's talking about?

Oh, well. I'm in a reasonably good mood today. Because it's ...

NEW iPOD TIMES.

I joined MyAnime List.

Damn, I've barely watched any anime/read a lot of manga. I'm sure there's more that I can't remember right now. :/

Edit: Iowa Court Says Gay Marriage Ban Is Unconstitutional.

The news today is really sad, but this made me smile. It probably made my entire day.

THREE STATES DOWN SO FAR. COME ON, AMERICA, GET WITH THE PROGRAM.

Right. Everyone on my flist knows I barely post about religion, politics, but I deeply care about human rights.

I just found this. Please, watch this video. Whether you're a Christian or not, don't ever forget what the words "bashing" and "attack" really mean.

Hearing Republicans from my community college suggest that Democrats in general should get impeached from office put me in a very pessimistic mood today. THAT'S MY GENERAL MOOD ABOUT POLITICS TODAY, WHAT'S YOURS?

In better news, take a look at this video. It has some pretty sweet concept art and pictures of dolls for the next Disney movie The Princess and the Frog. I'm pretty excited about this movie. It looks cute. Please to be getting back to your glory days, Disney.

I have to admit, this is a pretty emotional day for me.

I woke up at ten o'clock, in enough time to see former-presidents and their families come out, and to hear Obama announced. I had to leave in the middle of it, so I didn't get to hear them formally announce Obama as the president and wasn't able to hear his speech. But I was able to watch the end of the inaugeration in school. My Humanities professor let us out of class early to see Former-President Bush and his wife leave (oh my god i cannot begin to explain how freaking relieved i am now, and how ecstatic everyone was as they watched him leave; I thought the "da na na na" song was a little too disrespectful, but I guess that's karma).

In the meantime, I got to go to my classes. My previous Opera professor, who recognized me the moment she saw me (hooray! I think xD;), and Women in Creative Performing Arts looks like it's going to be a blast.

Our governor's been impeached?

Good, because his recent news conference was ....................... strange. Who were those people on the stage with him? And what the hell was he talking about? He doesn't help anyone! For Christ's sake. Please make him go away.

Don't even get me started on that one guy he picked for the senate seat. Ugh.

the issue.

So I heard that our governor was arrested for power corruption.

Frankly, I'm not surprised. Illinois is infamous for corrupted governors and politicians. And I don't feel sorry for him. He always came across to me as an asshole. And from what I hear about these allegations, especially about the children's memorial hospital (didn't fund them because they weren't going to give him a personal contribution in return), I believe he deserves everything that's getting thrown at him.

Frankly, I feel more sorry for my state and my city that we have yet another corrupted politician in our office.
