Women in Saudi Arabia have now been given the right to vote and run for municipal committees. Hopefully in the near future they can be given the right to learn how to drive a car and leave the country without a male companion.
Friday: Took a bio quiz and think I did well. Went to Brooklyn and got my hair done in Flexi Rod Curls for the first time. Ate Smoked Seitan & Snap Peas from Dao Palate ( Vegan Pan-Asian restaurant). Came home with a bad headache but was greeted with a new top and blazer by my gracious mother
Saturday: Dropped off money with my mommy. Then went shopping for black flats and came out with baby blue bcbg flats and gold shimmer steve madden flats. Proceeded to Spice to have lunch where I ate duck for the first time, chicken and cashew rice with my passion fruit bellini. Went to Union Square and saw Contagion———> ZOOMED back to Long Island and watched Killer Elite.
Sunday Morning (wee hours): Sat on my car trunk with a friend and ate sugar cane. Chucked ackee (gunep) seeds as a contest. Locked my car keys with my id in my car. Finally got in my car and in my bed, to wake up to extensively plan a Black Students United meeting for tomorrow.
My weekend had its ups (the food) and downs (locked keys & humidity) but I thoroughly enjoyed it all.
i’m always asking questions
but then I turned 20, became a junior in college as an exercise science major. I am supposed to change the world and make it a better place for future generations. At what point did that past generations lose their way to making the world better for me and my counterparts? Exactly when, where and how did they know how to start the process? I don’t know what I want from day to day more or less, but I’m supposed to make goals for 5, 10, 15 years into my future. I’m young and less ignorant with each day but I make no real decisions, because those I vote for have nothing in common with me except they harbor the thoughts I have in order for me to vote for them. They are all married, paying taxes, raising families and wear business suits everyday. I’m struggling to pay cell phone bills, keep fish alive for more than one season of a television series and rocking sweatpants & flip flops for breakfast lunch and dinner. Maybe if I had someone who was single, sensible and not double agenda minded in my government offices; I could understand more so how I myself could make my world better for those after me. But my time is supposedly now, when the old rigid make my big decisions because they have experience over creativity and sensitivity and when those younger than me are growing at a rate where I feel outnumbered. To those generations after me and still coming, I don’t know if it can get better, but I promise (though you didn’t even vote for me) that I won’t make it any worse.
Life would be much easier if people were one dimensional; all good or all bad
