Women are more valuable than any gift, however to some, not limited to men; do not recognize the full potential of a woman, simply because most women do not recognize the full potential of themselves. Women play many different roles in and outside of the household. For example, if a woman is constricted to the house and it’s up keep, then she is considered to be a housewife. Another category that women might fall into is being is sex symbols. This is the woman who lives her life by the saying “sex sales”. This means that she puts a price on her outer beauty, and any and everything she does is with her sex appeal.  Young girls who have not yet become full grown women are not yet able to classify into being a housewife or a sex symbol.  However, at their tender age they are being molded by their surroundings and the media itself.

A woman is often seen as what you mold her to be at a young age. Meaning, that most likely, whatever she grows up around and have influences of is what will make her the women she grows up to be. If a girl grows up in a neighborhood that has high crime rates and poverty stricken, she most likely will feel limited as to what her future holds. In some instances, you can take the girl out of her element and show her things that she might not be used to, and change her life. Therefore a girl or any child for that matter perception can be altered by an out of nature surrounding experience. Being able to show a girl at a young age her worth in a positive way is one of the best ways to help mold a well-rounded woman.

Even though women have been revealing who they used to be centuries, society still finds ways to degrade women. For instance, in an essay entitled, “From Fly Girls to Bitches and Hos,” Joan Morgan testifies that women in the media are losing the respect that women have worked so diligently to obtain in the first place by letting themselves be classified as bitches, and ho’s. Young girls are growing up seeing that most women get attention because of their sex appeal. However, this is not the image that they want to strive for because of the slander that soon follows their names.  But because no one is there to distinguish the fatal non reality from reality, girls grow up believing that they have to either put out what they have or just be thrown into less important categories of society which may only seem less important because it is less publicized. Because women have let society classify them into categories, we are left wondering how deep the hole we as women have dug ourselves. Meaning how far have we come social wise, to be lead back done the same path of demise. Women are starting to realize that we are more than what society refers to us as only because they are losing value in society as we know it.

Sweet Dreams

Instead of discussing current events tonight, I decided to reveal a creative writing sketch. I’m an English major, so I write in my spare time. Let me know what you think!

I saw you in my dreams last night. Or at least I thought I did. I could’ve sworn that was you wearing playful laughter, delivering crude jokes, and staring deeply into my eyes, If I don’t know by now, I guess I never will. At least that’s what they say. Forgetting you was apart of my plan, but from time to time I recall remnants of you.

Never thought puppy-love could evolve into an endless, painful love that served as an insatiable thirst for fresh air. Instead, the moon and the stars aligned tonight. He is your horcrux. Oooooh…just my type!  Well, at least physically; tall, dark-skinned with a mahogany, toned huskiness. Kissable full lips, beautiful, dark brown eyes coverting nostalgic memories of abandonment. Yes, abandonment. That’s one thing I’ll always remember about you-you were abandoned too.

The burning office wasn’t the only thing that burned that night. Your soul was burning with incessant questions: “Why me? Daddy, don’t you still love me? How could you abandon me?” Your dad left you and your mom to fend for yourself in the brutal, Indiana winter. I’m sorry it happened. But more importantly, I’m sorry WE never happened. We could’ve been so much more.

I guess that attracted me, huh? Hmmm…your pain turned into love and I tasted its sensitivity. I missed that. How sensitive you could be while being an asshole at the same time. So tall, brown, and handsome. You were my baby…

But as I sit here and reminisce about last night, I refuse to ignore our love. The cold, December nights, making love with our kisses by the river, the carnal desire of foreplay, but most of all, your soul. Your soul. Your beautiful, priceless soul. Your soul is what I miss. It’s empty now. No more affection for us. Well at least not from each other.

 

Sweet dreams. I could’ve sworn I saw you in my dreams last night.

Jochem Hendricks

jochem_hendricks7 Hendricks_zuerich_5 Hendricks_zuerich_1 Copy-of-JH-Concetti-02-PHO-copy

Jochem Hendricks is an artist from Germany, whose works are inspired by his own financial flux. His interview from The New Art Gallery Walsall shows his aluminum, gold, copper and other precious metal pieces that were affected by firearms to give them a sense of brutality beneath their beauty. Other works include vessels made of smelted grains of sand which he paid illegal immigrants to count, questioning the value of labor. Hendricks also shows otherwise failed casted porcelain sculptures in a way that they are still intact, but disproportionate, cracked, bent, and other imperfections.

Jochem Hendricks also introduced the art world to eye tracker technology, a programmed system where he could draw with his eyes to make an image. The art world rejected his idea, saying that it used too many machines to be rendered human, and was much less art than design oriented. But the audience enjoyed it, and he says that’s all that matters. These works were shown in the 1990’s and are still in circulation in Europe and other countries.

One of Hendricks’ serieses is “Concetti”, which are made by piercing or puncturing various surfaces including, canvas, gold, copper and aluminum with firearms. They look like high-end hotel decorations until Jochem deciphers their intended meanings. The damage looks like Jochem may have inflicted them by dropping rocks from a very high altitude, but by doing so with guns, it changes the meaning.

    Hendricks’ “Luxury Avatar” series is another one that was shown at the New Art Gallery Walsall. The series is composed of porcelain cast sculptures of Hendricks’ own body, where all but one failed during the curing process. He shows the successful sculpture with a gold plated head, neck and collar. That is all the gold he could afford at the time so he stopped it there to symbolize his then-maximum financial strength. Going broke to contribute to that one piece of art cost him the other luxuries he was used to, a feat that many artists aren’t willing to embrace.

    Another of Hendricks’ works in the exhibit was the porcelain dog sculptures. He didn’t really go into detail about what they meant, but he said that people like dogs… I wish he didn’t show this piece, and that’s all i can say about it. It kinda fails tremendously when sitting aside the others in my honest opinion. All I could think was, “Why put this crap in the show if it has nothing to do with the other pieces?”.

    The last works he showed was the pieces that he did with his eye tracker technology. They were cool to look at, and interesting from any way i could think about it. Because we artists use our eyes to tell our hands what to do, he takes the hands out of the equation.  But the critics saying that this method is too machine-based are wrong, because he still used his mind and ideas to create it. I don’t believe that the only way to validate art is by it being hand-created.

Would the old you be surprised?

Well, the main point of this post is to answer this simple yet complex question. If you looked in the mirror one day and saw a younger you, maybe 5-10 years younger, would he/she be surprised at your current hobbies, interests and how you interact with people today? Would the 11/16 year old version of you light up with delight if they saw you or turn away in shame at some of the things you have done over the years? For me personally, I believe the younger me would sit me down and try to have a discussion about where we were headed. I see him saying “hey bruh, what you on? You been slippin but I can help you get back on track”. I can honestly say that from then till now, I’ve made some choices that I don’t fully regret but looking back I could have thought them through a bit more before acting on them. My younger self would be for the most part surprised but also glad that I became who I am from what I was. I would want to go over everything I could, should, and would have done if I had the chance for a do over or two. I would think he would comment on the company I currently keep, and the caliber of women I’ve been with. I think he would tell me that everything I did wasn’t merely just a right or wrong choice but all apart of whom I am molding myself to be. I would ask him if he’s proud of me and if he thought things would be different. I’m thinking he’s probably going say that I’m cool and I have a lot of friends. I wonder if the conversation will be the same 5-10 years in the future and if I’ll be the one put on the spot. Just something to think about, but don’t think about it too much.

How do you feel on the subject matter at hand?

 

Who dates who….

Before you read this watch the video.

Dating and Race

So, I really don’t know how to feel. Well, let me stop lying this has upset me greatly. I feel the percentages show were because of the stereotypes that are in the media. Women are portrayed as loud, voicetress and ghetto. Men are just supposed to be bums, drug dealers and men who want nothing better for them selves. I think this is just bs, I’m greatly hurt for my race. Black men wont even date black women and no one wants to date them. I just have no words, it has put a bad taste in my mouth. No one wants to date a black woman either. But, why though, what the reasoning behind. Besides what I spoke up on, what are the facts?! I’m just wondering.

So in my curiosity I looked it up, though there was not much to find, one article believes that racism is still deeply rooted and it just is hard. (the link to the article http://www.yourtango.com/201172315/study-shows-white-online-daters-rarely-date-black-people) But that’s only with whites. What of the other races that are involved. Asians and Latino, they want to date white’s as well. I have no problem with this. But who the heck we supposed to date. I don’t maybe I’m just ranting and raving for no reason, but I do feel insulted. Like we not good to date. I feel personally we’re just as innovative, intelligent and hard working as any other race. Again, I say I feel as if this is some true bs.

 

 

How people define Success?

At one time, I would have defined success that way.  Having all kinds of possessions.  Well, it’s still indicates success, but it indicates worldly success.  There’s nothing wrong with that as long as one keeps it in perspective and know that that type of success is a finite success.  When your time is up, that’s it, it’s over.  Depending on who is the next person in line, all of those things which are signs of that success could be gone like it never existed in the first place if they don’t do right by it.  But, life can be made much more comfortable for one’s heirs by passing down those earnings and them not blowing it foolishly.
However, I now define success as discovering God’s will for one’s life and living in it.  Doing what one is called to do or being content in the place God has one at in life.  Being that light in a dark world…being that lamp that shines – that’s success to me.  The possessions are lagniappe.  Growing old with one’s wife with children and grandchildren around…that’s success to me.  Being saved and living one’s life for Christ – that’s success. True success is in knowing the peace and serinity of GOD’s love and friends and family

Rising Cost in Food

If Congress does not act soon,  47 million americans, in which 1 million being recipents from the state of Louisiana  will be forced to ask themsleves the question of whether $36 a month could hold their kids from starvation.

Unfortunatley Job loss is the main reason why citizens have no other choice but to applyfor the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program currently known as  Food Stamps.

SNAP cuts are soon to take affect if congress votes againist the Increasing budget for food cost, majority of americans are losing jobs and are not able to afford life’s necessities like food and medicine. In my opinion this should not be, America prides itself on being the Most Powerful Country in the World and yet they have millions of its  citizens struggling from pay-check to pay-check to keep meals on the table and many more struggling to get a meal at all. Congress is elected by the people and SHOULD  be for the people, but I’m assuming they are  so focused on Syria’s disorder and  allegations of the recent  use of chemical weapons. President Obama should be using his enthusiasm to persuade Congress to act and vote to keep american families with Jobs and Food Assistance.

But lately all headlines are coming from Obama’s eager to use targeted military strikes against the assad regime. Honestly we need to cut back on military spending and focus on rebuilding the Country, citizens are falling below the poverty line day after day and all we can focus on is some military action that would kill other innocent citizens of syria.

In my findings the US spends $9 trillion on its entire military and when it comes to  spending on Food and Nuitrion it calculates to $75 billion for the fiscal year, Its unfortunate that america’s children are struggling to keep jobs and food and yet it can afford to have military ships anchored in the Mediterranean sea.grocery

Death Penalty

Currently thirty-eight states in the United States allow crimes to be punished with a death sentence and is only given to those who commit heinous crimes, usually involving murder. Methods include lethal injection, electrocution, gas chambers, firing squads, and hanging but lethal injection is the most common. Many people in America feel that capitol punishment is best but I am totally opposed to it.

Many people believe that with Capitol punishment allowed, it will bring fear to individuals that think twice about committing heinous crimes. This had been proven not to be true. Research has shown that America has the highest rate of murder and is the only country in the world that utilizes capitol punishment. People obviously aren’t affected by the idea of having to face the death penalty when they commit crimes.

The death penalty is also very expensive. Research shows that the state of Florida would save $51 million if they just convicted all first-degree murderers with life sentences rather than the death penalty.

Capitol punishment is also used with a lot of racial undertones, which is very unfair for certain individuals. African Americans who kill whites are sentenced to death much more often than whites that kill African Americans. Research has shown that over a five-year period in Georgia, 20.1% of those sentenced were blacks who killed whites, while only 2.9% were whites who killed blacks. Blacks receive harsher sentences when they are on trial for murder but their lives are not given value when they are the victims.

The major conflict with capitol punishment is that someone innocent may be executed. Capitol punishment is permanent and leaves no room for mistakes. Once the process is complete, there is no bringing a person back to life if they find some type of error was.

When’s the last time you did something for the first time?

Everyday you get up and you have a routine that you follow, you go to school or work then you go home or you might go hang with friends. The autonomy of daily life traps people into loops of actions that we rarely interrupt. Every day its usually the same thing but whens the last time you did something for the first time? When was the last time you were spontaneous and just let your inhibitions go and truly enjoyed yourself. Usually we as people look to others for acceptance in a few ways, such as; emotionally, socially, physically etc. Instead of doing what you always do, why don’t you just switch it up once in a while? I assure you that anyone could use some zest in their life at any point in time. Instead of choosing the safe route, the road you’ve traveled many a day, instead you should opt for the choice that you have never thought about before. Just try it, just once, I bet you will feel revitalized about life unless you have a bad encounter but that’s just life, you have to get back up on your feet and brush the dirt off sometimes. Good or bad you will still have the feeling of having done something new, while the bad experience mist dissuade you for a moment, you have to think about all the good experiences that life has to other. When’s the last time you had some time to your self and you used that time for the discovery of a talent or hobby you never even knew you had. When was the last time you indulged and did something you wouldn’t normally do but did it because you felt you needed the feeling above all else. When was the last time you truly lived?

What will the effects of Obamacare be?

The Affordable Health Care Act or Obama Care is a form of healthcare reform that will change the dynamics of the way health care is obtained, distributed and lost in the United States. Obama Care is the result of years of debate between all political parties for a better health care system. The Affordable Health Care Act holds over one thousand pages of reform for health insurance companies.

Things that will change with the introduction if Obama Care include; before Obama Care people were able to be denied because of pre-existing conditions, women were able to be charged more by insurance companies because of the great amount of time they spend at hospitals while pregnant and people were able to be dropped from their insurance policies during mid-treatment because they made mistakes on their applications. One of the most important things Obama Care does is expand Medicaid and Medicare and offer cost assistance to those that can’t afford health insurance.

Although The Health Care Reform Act was signed into law in 2010 in hasn’t went into full effect. The new policies that are explained in the Health Care Reform Act are put into place year by year. The whole is expected to be in effect by the year 2022. Obama will provide insurance cuts for people that make less than $200,000 and people who have businesses that have 25 full time employees or less. How do you feel about Obama Care and do think that it’ll have positive or negative effects on you?
