Right back where I started. Half a year has already passed and I barely have anything to show for it. Sleep will not be possible tonight, so I’ll just lay in bed and scrutinize how much my life continues to fall apart.
Suck it up and keep going.
Now I’m upset because looking at the last picture I reblogged reminds me that it could be me. I don’t know what this lesion is on my chest, but it’s been there for almost three months. It’s on my right breast, and breast cancer runs in my family. My Nana has had breast cancer twice, and her first mastectomy was to remove her right breast. I have a follow up appointment in 10 days to get a biopsy, and I am terrified of hearing the results.
10 days until I go for my follow up appointment. I’m so nervous and anxious for the biopsy.
Please don’t be cancer.
I can’t believe this year is already almost over.
Nothing has changed. I had so much faith in you, 2011, and you let me down.
On Tuesday, I heard a girl crying in the bathroom. I knocked on the door and asked if she was okay; she replied back with no. I stayed there for 10 minutes, talking to her. Her name is Katie and her 16 month old son, Kevin, was in the hospital (reasons unknown). She is a nursing student. I invited her to come meet me for lunch. I told her if I didn’t see her that I hope she has a good day, that everything works out, and to “stay strong darling”.
Seeing this sign made me think of her, and her son. I hope they’re both okay.
I will not become involved in this for stupid reasons such as “they’ll take away tits!” or “this will ruin Tumblr!”. Think about this situation realistically and logically before you start dialing to complain to your state representatives. Think of how many calls they are currently receiving, and how frustrating it must be to hear the same silly reasons over and over again. Think of the real reasons why you want to stop internet censorship. If you aren’t sure where to start, here are a few good reasons:
1. The Internet is an excellent source of revenue for the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the total Internet e-commerce sales for 2008 were $133.7 billion, as well as $23.4 billion from Internet advertising. If the internet is censored, then what will happen to companies that rely heavily on online interactions with customers? How much will this affect our economy?
2. The Internet is an important resource for communication. The definition of the Internet is “a worldwide system of interconnected networks and computers” (nethistory.info). According to ITU, a UN agency for information and communication technologies, there are 162 million people on the internet at any given moment. The ability to receive and trade information instantaneously has empowered us intellectually. If this information was censored, how would it affect our interactions with others?
If you want to give more reasons, use the most available resource to you: The Internet.
Fight the right way.
