2011 Wrap Up
I’ve seen a lot of these today so figured I might as well join in, so bare with me as I attempt to include everything that occurred this past year in chronological order (to the best of my memories ability) and in bullet point because it’ll streamline this. - I started a job with the best Democratic lobbying team in the state. - I turned 21. - I balanced school and lobbying. - I...
One of my favorite things about being home aside from family time and seeing old friends and visiting my favorite restaurants, bars and hang outs. Is having all the Beatles albums on vinyl and being able to listen to them.
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must...– Elie Wiesel (via theworldsgotmedizzyagain)
There’s little of more importance to the future of our country and our...– J. F. Kennedy as quoted by his daughter, Caroline, at the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors (via kateoplis)
pantslessprogressive: Go Daddy loses over 37,000 domains due to SOPA stance Hosting and domain registrar company Go Daddy has lost more than 37,000 domains in the past two days due to the company’s wishy-washy stance on the Stop Online Piracy Act. The fleeing domains comes as a result of the intense backlash from customers and Internet critics after Go Daddy appeared on an official list of...
Between Jane’s dad, her brother, and myself. So far the 11 year old has managed to beat us both.

Jane's mom: why aren't you following me on twitter yet?
Jane's dad: I haven't been online today to even find you yet. I've got 22 followers.
Jane's mom: I've got 5 and only 3 of them are in this house.
Jane's dad: talk to me when you've got 10.
Jane: please put all of this on tumblr.
About a month after I gave John (Jane’s little brother) all my childhood Legos I am now getting a briefing of all the ones I ever owned & what sets they belong to. This kid did his research.

Today my dog broke my futon. I think it’s time he’s goes on a diet. I’m confident that the fact that 3 of us were sitting on it with him has nothing to with it.
Back at the Statehouse today. Need coffee.
I was never aware of any other option but to question everything.– Noam Chomsky (via philphys) Sounds about right. (via manspeaker)
She gets me.
I’m hard to shop for. Frankly I don’t much like getting gifts. Sure I like getting stuff but I never know what to ask for and usually when I want something I just go buy it and I would rather not have people worrying about what to get me. Jane and I exchanged gifts yesterday since next week we will be splitting our week up between both families so we figured it’d just be easier...
I Work For The Internet →

One argument that’s been made to Congress is that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is needed to protect American jobs. In truth, the new liabilities this bill would impose on startups could stop...
Republican candidates seem to live in an alternate... →
soupsoup: With a dragging economy creating a perfect weapon to defeat Obama, why are Republican candidates focusing so much of their time on issues that have no basis in reality? I wouldn’t say I agree with all of this but it’s worth the read.
I got a letter!
From my best friend from high school and roommate at K State today. He’s off at basic so I hadn’t seen or heard from him for a few months now (which is rare for us). Best reason to take study break ever.
Concerta + Coffee + Empty Stomach = Time Travel.
At least I’m pretty sure I could master time travel right now… or at least teleport of something.
