Because all the cool kids are doing it

You Are a Conservative Democrat

Frankly, the way most other Democrats behave embarasses you greatly.
You pride yourself on a high level of morals, and you have a good grasp on right and wrong.
It’s likely you think America needs to get back to its conservative, Juedo-Christian values.
Why aren’t you a Republican then? Because you believe the goverment helps more than hurts.

Monkeys All AROUND ME!

Maybe it is because I am reading Next by Crichton, or maybe it is because I am really surrounded. Monkey’s are a part of my life. A day does not go by where I don’t see one. I also love the word monkey and use it quite often. Now I know the Chimps are also going to be all up and arms about this, because they feels that even though they are simians they are not monkeys!!!

I wear an Acid Chimp shirt that my buddy gave me, or I should say the Acid Chimp myself. He is actually somewhat famous because he is part of the Hairball John radio show for the people that love the heavy stuff. He even has his own movie segment. You can listen online. The Chimp loves some of the obscure Asian films that are and acquired taste for some but I totally dig.

I am close friends with the Evil Monkey Racing group and their womanizing antics, even though now that I think about it two of the monkeys are married now… so there is only like a Monkey and half really lose. I make fun of the monkeys every time I can because even though they do have some pimp wisdom, the even had an advice column @ ChicagolandSportbikes.

I also visit Chimpotle every single day and laugh at the ranty manner in which he writes. He is the Chimp I want to be when I grow up. Recently I found that another chimp links to me. It even turns out that Hey Monkey she is a Chicago Monkey. I wonder if she is related in any way to the Evil Monkeys, probably not.

Tears give Clinton New Hampshire

Woman made the difference in the New Hampshire primary, and a reason could be Hillary’s show of emotion. The polls were correct on their predictions of everyone but Hilary, it seems like she did move voters last minute toward her camp.

People need to remember that we want change. Clinton was already in the white house, let someone else give it a try! Make your vote count and vote Obama.

Stress building up?

I heard in the radio this morning that this week is the one where most people get divorced. It makes sense since the decision to get a divorce is one that comes with wanting a different life, a fresh start. The radio show said that the most common reason is infidelity followed by abuse and then money problems.

A marriage is hard work, but it should not feel like it. If we learn to recognize how taxing the holidays can be in a relationship, we can begin to address things before they become issues.

The holiday season can really make you lose perspective over what is really important. Wanting to give the perfect gift or host the perfect party can really take a lot out of someone. Then the new year hits and all of those resolutions that did not get accomplished from last year can pile up and make it seem like another year went by without much change in life.

I really think the secret to a good life is having peace of mind. Being able to sit in a room by yourself and just be content with your life. Be able not to forget about your problems, but know that you have plans to tackle each one of them. Also counting your blessings and seeing where you are at instead of where you have not been able to get to.

It is important to be able to know what it is that releases your stress. A good crying session, a round of video game playing, a good book, a great CD. Don’t let stress get built up, take a moment of your day to decompress. Also don’t forget to laugh, make sure that you have something in your daily routine that brings a smile to your face.

Make sure that now that you are back at work, or school, or into your routine you put what is important first. Make sure that you take the time to clear your head each day instead of carrying stress that does not need to be carried. Open up to those around you about what is on your mind and encourage them to do the same. Move forward and make little changes to your life instead of trying to reshape it all in one day. Most important, be happy that you are awake and that you are taking on a brand new day.
