Watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix.
Typing with one hand because a certain dog is laying on my other one.
Reading about both Cory Monteith and the Zimmerman trial. What a depressing 24 hours, right?
Hearing squeaks from a squeak toy. Lots of them.
Writing my post for tomorrow. At least, I'm planning my post for tomorrow in my head. It might be sentimental by accident. I can't tell yet.
Excited to finally be reunited with this little dog! It's been like two weeks.
Wearing an H&M dress, but I'm about to go change clothes.
Drinking a Dr Pepper.
Wishing that tomorrow wasn't Monday, if I'm being honest. More vacation, plz.
Anticipating the next few days. Lots of things are happening, my friends!
Feeling a bit tired I suppooooose. I see a nap in my future. We'll see how amenable the dog is to that.
(Linking up with Lauren, duh)
I also have a few things I'd like to get off my chest about the George Zimmerman trial.. The whole situation sucks. It just sucks.
If I'm SUPER honest with myself, I know that the state probably wasn't able to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that George Zimmerman killed Travyon Martin in cold blood. And really, we'll never know exactly what happened. To be clear, I absolutely think he should be in jail. But the rational part of me knows that it's impossible to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt exactly what happened. Know what I mean?
But all that doesn't change the fact that George Zimmerman placed himself in a situation he didn't have to be in. The original 911 operator TOLD him not to follow Travyon Martin, and he did it anyway. This entire situation could have been avoided if George Zimmerman wasn't trying to be some crazy vigilante hero trying to save his neighborhood from someone who was never a threat in the first place. Despite the verdict, we all know he killed an innocent seventeen year old boy, and he'll always be that. His life is ruined forever, and at least he's not using up taxpayer dollars sitting in jail.
I hope that we will use this as a lesson that we need to be teaching our children how to be compassionate and tolerant. I also hope that this will remind everyone that the laws AREN'T applied to everyone equally. Women are still fighting for their reproductive rights, gay men and women are still fighting for their right to marry, and an unarmed black teenager is dead because he wanted some Skittles. We make progress every day, but we still have a very, very long way to go.
Also, I saw this gif last night and thought it was pretty freakin' hilarious. (No offense to my Florida friends, obviously.) But who needs a state with such a stupid law? Not me, that's for sure.
