If you are one of those “adults” you get mad at the students who have just survived a mass shooting…because they say how adults have failed…
The school mass shootings should have stopped at the very first one! Not forgotten about! These are children who are trying to protect themselves, it’s not their jobs to do that! We, as the adults, are supposed to protect them. These should have stopped YEARS ago! If these kids hadn’t of stepped up, it would have just been pushed to the side again…!
I have actually been in arguments with “adults” who pretty much threaten these children with taking away their support for them, because the kids have said how they are having to clean up the adults mess…THEY ARE RIGHT! I’ve also been accused of not taking the cause seriously because I stood up and said that these kids are right. When I got VERY angry and told them I’m not the one taking away my support, that would be them…I got blocked!lol
These children have had their lives threatened, had targets put on their, they have been called all sorts of names because the adults “don’t agree” with the students…Yet, how dare the children say the adults failed them…The bastards!
Even as a non-American adult in another country. I feel like I’ve failed them as well because as someone who lives in a country with good gun control. I feel like I could get more word out there as how good gun control is.
As adults we HAVE to get over own feelings. Our own guilt and DO SOMETHING NOW! The children are dying!
So I think that I may have mentioned previously that I was feeling a bit down last week and was finding it hard to be “motivated”. There was one reason for this and one reason alone, but first … Picture it, Adelaide … 2012…A youngish girl is all excited that she is now volunteering with her local Library, hoping to start her career, not able to see into the future, had no idea for the next three years that she would be completely mucked about with.
Here’s a few things that have happened to me over the years:
- For over a year they were telling me that they had my resume on file and for over a year they lied to me.
- Even as a Library student, they let me do a practical for them and they have still not given my a certificate to verify that I participated in the activity, even though it nearly caused me to fail.
- Since they’ve wasted so much of my time telling me they had my file and they did not. They’ve changed their policies (which is what I found out last week). So even though I have always been on time, I cannot work at the Library now for a least a year and a half.
So my usual happy self has been extremely…well to phrase it correctly…Been pretty pissed off really.
I have definitely been having one of those weeks where I have to question, I do the right thing all the time, and it’s pretty much getting me nowhere.

I call myself “Eternally Single”. I call myself this because being 30 years old I have spent most of that single. Once I’m in a relationship I am committed but when I’m single, I am single. I have done the casual sex thing and I have learnt both good and bad from that. At this moment I have no interest in that, so I will not participate in it.
However this year I have been shocked by the amount of women in my life who have been in really bad relationships. Not just bad relationships, but they were bad right from the start. I have been shocked because these are women I admire and completely respect. They are intelligent, smart and motivated women. Who have travelled the world, found jobs they love, (some) have had children. I wont lie when I say that this women have made me feel “dumb” not through any put downs or the like from themselves. I would be struggling (thanks to my dyslexia) and getting an average of a C and they would be getting double A’s.
These women have been shocking me all year…These intelligent, beautiful, loving hearted and strong women are letting themselves be treated horribly…by a guy…and not really extraordinary guys either. Even if they were extraordinary guys it wouldn’t be acceptable.
I have one girlfriend who is actually considering going against everything that she hates and despises just so her boyfriend can sleep around more aka open relationship. Apparently because she’s been cheated on once or twice that should prove she should just be ‘used’ to be cheated on? WTactualF! She’s already said “No” several times, but he wont let it go. Another woman my grandmothers age and I woman I highly admired, sent a group email to upset a male friend of hers, so he would get in contact with her…My Grandmothers age! Then this very close family member of mine has recently told us what happened to her and how badly her now ex-husband treated her…I have no idea how they got married!
I’m sitting here feeling like a failure because I don’t have a man and I’m 30 years old…But I tell you what I’d rather be single than living with this every day of my life! These women I love and admire might as well be single!

Here is a clip from their movie “One Hour of Girl Power” where they give their own definition of what Girl Power really means.
Just to start off with, I do really love the whole idea of the “R U Okay” day (which is an Australian depression awareness day). I think it’s great to see so many people getting into it and asking people on their Facebook, Social Media sites “asking” people “R U Okay”.
Find out more about R U Okay day (from Australia).
The only problem I have with this idea is that as someone who suffers from depression, I don’t necessarily open up to someone who just asks me “Are you okay?”. I’m not sure about others, but a lot of people (myself included) when we are in the time of being depressed, I have SUCH a hard time telling anybody anything. Then what about the other 364 days of the year? I never heard anyone talk about it again. Plus people tend to say it on their wall, or post some link and that’s it.
I literally woke up letting people know that I had an extremely bad night, full of nightmares and tears…Only one person asked me “R U okay”…So as far as I am concerned, the whole day was a failure. Then people went to posting cute animals videos and posting political links that no one really cares about. In fact the best responses I got today was on my status on how great Lasagne is =S So even on a day dedicated to making sure people are okay, writing two different statuses only the positive one got any responses…What does that say?
So even if you felt like “R U Okay” is a bit of a let down (like me). I think anyway to promote awareness of depression and suicidal issues can only ever been a good thing. I repeatedly tell people that I am always here day or night. I don’t need one day to tell people that.
