I Think I Would Blow My Brains Out

Now that I am in my mid-twenties, weddings, engagements and pregnancy photographs are flooding my newsfeed on Facebook, and I honestly find them lame. If I ended up married in some suburb with a few kids, I would probably get a pistol and blow my brains out, because being average just isnt in my blood. I do not understand how women of my generation think so backwards, or maybe it is not them, and its me with the strange thoughts.

I think it is important to be ambitious, and women that want to end up sitting on their asses wiping baby snot all day just doesnt cut it. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand the biological desire to reproduce, but if your sole goal in life is to raise babies I think you are weird. How could you possibly want some guy to financially support you? You do realize 50% of marriages will end in divorce, and if you didnt marry a rich guy after the divorce you will be screwed. The workforce is CONSTANTLY changing, and if you cannot keep up you will get trampled on by those that can.

I have family members that are divorced, however they always maintained a good job, so when the divorce was finalized they did not need to worry about money, because they had their own. Ladies it is 2013, time you wake up smell the fucking coffee, get educated and chase a career, because the truth is men like women with their shit together. They are more intriguing and insightful. This is why I cannot just be some dudes wife in a lame suburb raising children, it just isnt me, I would end up unhappy.

Three Kinds Of Rich People

There are three different kinds of rich people:

1. Ones that gained their wealth due to education; they are doctors, lawyers, CEO’s of companies etc. For the most part these are the worst types of rich people because they believe the world owes them something for trying so hard to get through an immense amount of tough schooling. They can be snobby, self-centered all around pricks. Are they all like this? Of course not! That would be over generalizing and that is not fair. I am just saying in my personal experience these are the snobbiest.

2. Self made millionaires. These are my absolute favorite, because these are the ones that busted their asses doing nitty gritty work in order to make it to the top of the ladder. These people never saw anything beneath them, and utilized their creative abilities to gain more cash. They are innovators, dreamers and usually think outside of the box.

3. They came from a wealthy family. These types of rich people are often envied because they did not have to anything but pop out of a vagina to gain their wealth. They got lucky. They got extremely lucky. Sometimes they are spoiled and appear oblivious to the rest of society, because they cannot relate to people that are not as lucky.Image

There Is Nothing Wrong With Loving Money

What do you wish you had more of? Money..right? Am I wrong? Your life seems complete, you have a decent job, a car that runs, good health and a loving family, but you do not have a gigantic house, a car so new you can taste the paint on your tongue, or enough time to travel the world without worrying about not  being able to pay your electric bill. Most of us want more money, because we were conditioned to desire wealth. There is nothing wrong about loving money, after all that is what pays our bills and for some grants a more adequate life style than those less fortunate. The underlying issue here is greed. Humans have a poor habit of getting what they want, than craving more and in an excess amount. There is nothing wrong with having a big house, chances are if you can afford one you worked hard to get it only jealous people will pick apart your character. There IS a problem when you believe you are superior to others, because of your extra Benjamin Franklin’s in your bank account. There IS a problem when you want ten big houses, because you are not satisfied with one or two. There is also a problem when you become wealthy, and are not willing to help those in need. Always remember there are those less fortunate than yourself…and the rich person will ignore them but the wealthy person will help them.

Everything In The World Is About Sex Except Sex is about Power

Oscar Wilde’s wise words are indeed correct. At least in my opinion. Let’s take a look at advertising, shall we; what is the easiest way to get a consumer’s attention? Sex. It is simple, eye catching, provocative, and time after time it continues to generate positive results. If it did not work, companies would not use it to sell the dipshit consumer their new scent of deodorant, or their new cologne. Or whatever else they want to convince somebody they NEED. 

Sex is also being used in the Entertainment industry, how many times do we hear previous generations complaining about how television contains a ridiculous amount of sex? We hear people annoyed ALL the time. Most of these people are angry mothers, pissed off because the squeaky clean teenager their tween daughter idolizes isnt so clean after all. 

Sunday night, Miley Cyrus performed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards acting a little aloof, and somewhat obscene. The internet went into a frenzy posting memes, photographs, articles and count downs poking fun at the former Disney starlet. Cyrus has been acting a little crazy, I am sure she is experimenting with drugs, partying, drinking, having sex, the works. 

I want you to close your eyes for a moment, let’s go back in time to when you were 16 years old. Now let’s pretend you are famous, people idolize you, and you are filthy rich. You cannot have certain friends, because you are under a strict contract that forbids you to be seen with certain people or do certain things. If you get caught with a cigarette in your hand or appear stoned your cookie cutter image could be destroyed…FOREVER! You are basically a big corporations puppet. Now lets flash forward to a few years. You are now 21 years old, your strings have been cut off, you are famous, filthy rich and have the world in the palm of your hands. How would you be acting? Remember the 21 year old version of yourself, the younger, dumber, immature version of what you grew up to be. I am sure you knew someone that experimented with drugs, drank too much and had the occasional casual sex partner. It is called sewing your wild oats and most people are a little crazy during their youth. It is NORMAL!

Miley’s outrageous performance did exactly what it intended to do, it put her in the spotlight, it stole the show even if people were saying negative things about her there is no such thing as bad publicity. Miley having the media poke fun at her ass, calling her a drug addict, crazy whatever terms they choose to use is a whole lot better than ignoring her. 

Here is where everything ties into Oscar Wilde’s fine words: sex is about power. We use sex to control people. We use sex to sell people products they dont necessarily need, we create a problem than give them a solution by incorporating sex. Ladies use this diet pill you will lose 15 pounds in two weeks!!! Flashes to a sexy model running in central park. Men use AXE!! Flashes to a guy getting trampled by a bunch of hot models on a beach, all because his arm pits smell like AXE. You can’t just have sex with anyone, you want the chiseled form of pure perfection you see on your screen and in order to get that person you need to use that product. It sounds silly but it works. If it did not work we would see more homely looking people dressed in jeans and a t-shirt informing us of why we need this product. We do not see this because it is not a fantasy that is many people’s reality. 

America’s Corrupt Education System

Many students would rather be playing video games, participating in extracurricular activities or watching television than going to that dreadful place known as school. Why do we think this is? Well for starters in most states it is required for students to attend school up until the age of 16, at this tender age they can make the decision to not come back. It is often shoved down their throats by educators how important our education is, how it is the key to a successful adulthood, yet many successful entrepreneurs became college drop-outs. This is something our education system likes to keep discrete, because if students begin to figure out the system is biased they may not spend thousands of dollars to receive a fancy piece of paper with their name on it. 

For one thing all Americans were not created equally, those growing up in lower income neighborhoods do not receive the same education as those growing up in more affluent homes. The turn over rate for teachers in impoverished school districts is much higher than those of more upper middle class, and wealthy. This provides the wealthier with a more stable environment, imagine those students that frequently have substitute teachers, you think they are taught as well as those that do not? What about the text books, the equipment, the buildings, wealthier neighborhoods are able to obtain higher funding, granting them better computers, nicer buildings, desks, and supplies.

Educators always focus on test grades, can a student memorize a bunch of bullshit and circle a few bubbles in to get the correct answer. Just because a student can do this does not mean they have good teachers, nor does it display a sense of intelligence. I hate how everything revolves around numbers, and tests, lets teach students how to discuss what they are learning through conversations. Let them embrace their inner weirdo, and allow them to have more creative freedom for class assignments. Let the students choose the majority of their classes when they get into high school, economic classes should be provided to students, one in which gives them fake money, a fake job, and a fake salary, than a mortgage, phone bill, etc to show them how expensive the cost of living is especially when you are earning a low salary. Sex education should be in every public school across the country, it should provide students with FREE contraception, a look into how expensive it is to raise a child, and the risk of contracting an STD. I also believe better business classes should be offered, lets teach our kids how they can form their own businesses, social media classes should be offered, in today’s world so many people are having success because of social media. Nutrition classes should be provided, obesity is a growing epidemic in America, lets educate our youth on what is healthy, and unhealthy for their bodies. All in all I believe we need to make school more interactive, and teachers should want to educate not just go and collect a paycheck because their careers are extremely important to our youth.
