My indoor track season has started and with winter break about to be here teachers have been all kinds of reckless trying to cram everything in so I've just been beyond busy.
I'm working on my time management and I think 3-4 blog posts a month sounds reasonable ...
To all the college kids who have finished finals and are already on break I envy you, and to all the high schoolers struggling to make it these last few days I feel your pain.
Keep on trekkin'

(I tried to get the video on here but I'm not nearly tech savvy enough when it comes to hulu)

"You know, I don't think so. I wish we didn't have to be nude to be noticed, but given the game as it exists, women make decisions. For instance, the Miss America contest is in all of its states, forms … the single greatest source of scholarship money for women in the United States. If a contest based only on appearance was the single greatest source of scholarship money for men, we would be saying, 'This is why China wins.' You know? It's ridiculous. But that's the way the culture is. I think that we need to change the culture, not blame the people that are playing the only game that exists."
Earlier on the "Miley" subject she said;
"It seems obvious that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment."

Speaking of which, if I hear one more thing about "kids these days", and how lazy we are, and how everything is going down hill, I am going to scream. So, I'm not saying you have to or anything, it's completely optional, but you should really watch the video I attached to this.

I am currently blogging from my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3! Yes, this is the one I was talking about a few blog posts ago, my amazing Godfather completely surprised me and got it for me and I love it.
The only downside...
It's not compatible with itunes. As previously stated in past blogs, I was a big Apple person, I have an iPhone and MacBook, so I've spent a pretty penny in the itunes store. I have movies, music, shows, stuff that I would want on my tablet.
I synced up my tablet and tried to transfer everything, assuming it would be like my Apple products and just show up in my itunes, but nooooo, they have to make it extra difficult. Forty-five minutes later, after reading the instruction manual, I do what the manual has instructed me to do and go on the android website and download the itunes equivalent for Samsung. An hour later, after dragging over my music, tv shows, and movies, I re-sync up my tablet and everything goes smoothly.
It was in this false sense of security that I decided to try to see what a movie would look like on here. I tapped on the movie title and a screen popped up that said "not compatible with your device", in my naive state I thought maybe it was a fluke so I tried all the movies, music, and tv shows and none of them worked. Not cool.
After further investigation I gathered that itunes encrypts their stuff with something that makes it unable to play on non-Apple devices. From an Apple business standpoint, this is great! It forces people to stick with Apple because it's easier to use the software they already have, plus they don't want to lose the stuff they purchased from itunes.
From a regular person with itunes and a tablet, this sucks. I like this tablet too much to switch to an ipad, yet I want my itunes stuff. They give me no choice but to be shady and find some anti encryption android software that has to be out there somewhere on the internet,
I feel personally victimized and bullied.
Why must they make this so difficult, can't we all just get along? I should not have to give an arm and a leg to get stuff that I paid for, and therefore own, onto a different device. I should be able to put my itunes purchases wherever I please, from whatever company I please, whether it be Apple, Samsung, or something else entirely. No matter what I do with it I paid for it, they still get the money, so I don't understand why this is even an issue.
I'm really not tech savvy enough for all this.

It's 2013, not every American has blonde hair and blue eyes (this isn't Sweden!), and I think that's a good thing.
