CRAZINESS

So, holy crow, it's been so dang long since I've last posted. Sorry, guys!
I graduated FEMA Corps on 19 November. I have been home since then. I have finally adjusted to not having always having at least one other person in my room with me, to not having to go back to Denver, to waking up and seeing suburbia instead of mountains.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year were all okay. But the only thing that's been kind of crazy is that a good friend committed suicide last month. It's been really affecting me negatively. I wish that I would have called him or something. But I don't know if it would have changed anything.
I also got a job, quit, and got a new job. I start my new job on Friday. Which is awesome. I can't wait to start
All the craziness in Paris is so insane. Terrorist attacks on Wednesday and Friday. An attack like that in the middle of the day, all that craziness. It just boggles my mind. I think that these people who attacked others who wrote their opinions in a magazine to take away their freedom of speech. That and they held hostages in a kosher market to try to get their counterparts free. I'm Parisian, and it's really boggling me. #JeSuisCharlie in support of all the victims and their families who were affected in the Charlie Hebdo shooting. #JeSuisAhmed in support of all the police who were and are part of this. #IAmJewish. #IAmMuslim who are the non-extremists and are saying that these extremists are doing this #NotInMyName. They had a rally today in Paris. They attacked the Western civilization, they attacked our freedom of speech. I want to do something... A candle-lit vigil, a rally of our own. SOMETHING.
Okay, so, I'm going to sign off now. It's been an insane two months.
Stay awesome, y'all.

  1. Charly, it is terrible with what has and is happening in Paris... the sad thing is it can happen anywhere... I pray that we as a world stand up to these extremists and let them know we are not going to back down to please them... I am praying and sending good thoughts to all the people affected by this tragedy ..

    Good luck with the new job, I am happy for you... take care of yourself xo
