I’m Fine

My Poor, Deprived Viewers,

My deepest apologies. I acknowledge that I have not posted in over a week. I happen to be cramming every little bit of Thing into my weeks, so as to free up my cram-free-spring-break. But don’t worry, (not that I’m accusing you of worrying, which you are, but whatever) I will be posting consistantly-ish for my whole spring break and afterwards. Thank you for you patience.

X for Justice

Once again I am alternating between cursing my computer’s offspring and crying bucketfuls. I cannot seem to get the photos from my pre-spring-break vacation to load onto wordpress. So you will have to satisfy yourself with this:
On Thursday, the 27th, a nationwide movement took place that I had the honor in being involved with. I got to join Freedom Fighters from around the world as we SHOWED A LIGHT ON SLAVERY. We drew a RED X on our hands. We told the world that slavery still exists and WE WOULDN’T STAND FOR IT. Just by using our influence in any way we could, we helped carry the message of FREEDOM so even more people know. We SHOWED A LIGHT ON SLAVERY.
[most of this text that you just read I copied and pasted from the website http://www.enditmovement.com. They worded it better than I ever could.]
Most people don’t know that slavery still exists. There are 27 million slaves, and we need to know about it. This is a picture of everyone in my family with our Red X.

Technical Difficulties

Hey everyone!

I’m still alive, but I am out of my home state visiting fam. This means I have some awesome new photos to share with you. It also means that I do not have my usual computer, which also means the computer that I’m typing on will not correspond nicely with my camera. So while you won’t be seeing any photos from me any time soon, you will have something to look forward to on Wednesday. Thanks for understanding and/or pretending to understand!

Ode to the Normal

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

That was said by Martin Luther King Jr. This quote helps prove the point that normal people, such as street sweepers, are important too. While the famous people are known, the small, normal people in the background are the ones that are getting the famous to the point where they are. We need to recognize the normal people in our lives or else they may decide to rise up against us in a mob of totally angry-normal people. Here are some of my favorite normal people:

Riley Poole-National Treasure

Image He is just so darn normal. Riley is the side-kick character that nobody remembers. But where would Ben be without his Riley?

Darcy Lewis-Thor

ImageThe intern. I don’t think Darcy actually does anything in Thor except taser our main character, but she is quite the good comic uplift.

(Notice how the Normal people have to drive.)

Clint Barton (a.k.a. Hawkeye)

ImageNow you may be thinking “Dude, Hawkeye is an Avenger. There is nothing normal about that.” If you are thinking this, you are only partly right. While Agent Barton is an Avenger, you must keep in mind that Clint is totally human. No super strength, mechanical suits, or gamma ray radiation involved. Pure normal. He is also the guy that will be beaten up first because of his lack of powers. (I mean really, look at what Loki did to him in Clint’s very first Avenger’s scene!)

Janner Igiby- On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness

ImageJanner is the extremely normal older brother of King Kalmar. He’s so normal and sensible that we don’t even have a picture of him. The poor boy. His brother got all of the exciting genes.

Dr. John Watson-Sherlock

ImageLook at him. He’s wearing a sweater, for crying out loud. Yet this normal-bordering-on-boring character managed to save Sherlock Holmes’ life on the very first day they met. Besides, only an extra-normal person could room with Sherlock, to even out the scales of normal.

Those were the Normal people that I could think of. (Of course, I probably forgot a few, considering that Normal people are so easy to forget.) If you can think of any other normal people in movies/shows/books, leave a comment!
