Unless you truly are living under a rock you know about the US debt ceiling and the looming default day of Aug 2nd. Now before I go further let me say, I am quite confused about many of the details on this issue and I am sure I have some facts wrong. I’ve been reading up on this but even then, the acronyms and jargon becomes complicated (confusing language is another topic I can go into - another time)
Back to the nations debt. It’s been weeks and we have not seen a bill passed by senate or really much action at all. As I’ve been watching, I wonder how much of the back and forth happening between parties Is about individual beliefs, the image of their party, or a real understanding of the situation our nation and our world is in.
Democrats and Republicans and the Tea Party etc etc. Many times I feel as if the arguments and disagreements that happen have less to do with what the individual believes is right for our nation but more about representing their parties. Or people who are “against tax raises”. Yes, everyone hates tax raises. But according to the news (which yes can be wrong) these people won’t even look at a proposal that involves tax raises. We are facing a debt default. At this point isn’t it important to look at all proposals? If you don’t like it, where is your plan?
Understanding my lack of knowledge in governmental issues (which I feel puts civilians in danger actually) I do believe that sometimes - people forget about logic and pays too much attention to pride.
Currently I am sitting in Bryant Park with my father reading a book next to me. It is a gorgeous day with sun and a breeze and being that it is a Sunday morning, not too many people around.
I love this.
I’ve been thinking a log about what i am going to do in less than a year when I am to graduate college and start anew. Well I want to start anew. I know there is a large possibility that I will be moving back home after graduation. That’s something I am totally ok with. Give me a year to get my shit together, save some money, and hopefully move out on my own. There is no way I could survive being home for too long.
But what to do when I do move out? I realize more and more that I need to be in a city. NYC would be amazing! Expensive as hell and I probably won’t be able to afford it. But a city! I realized today that I want to be in a place where I can walk outside and go anywhere. Maybe to the park to read. Or a cafe for some coffee before walking to work. Isn’t that the type of dream from the movies?
I don’t know what is going to happen in a year or where I will be. But I want to be in a city.
