I was trying to do something nice today.. for someone else. So I shake my fist at you rain. Well not even the rain, the damn wind. For being so tremendously vicious that I cannot go through with my plans..
But it’s ok. Soon enough the sun will come and kick your ass. =p
Gretchen:You're great! You can do anything if you put your mind to it :) & you're an awesome best friend (Some motivation for ya)
I had said that I needed some motivation around me. And to get this text from her and have one person supporting me even through a small gesture, meant a whole great deal to me today. I don't want to spend ALL my time being so humdrum and unproductive. Yes, I wanna do something. and Yes, I know it's up to my lazy ass to get out there and do that, but a little nudge or a supporting smile in this cynical nihilistic world can do wonders for my energy.
What is with those people that you used to like being around. you used to be the best of friends but then .. i dont know i guess life? or immature assumptions? caught up and changed everything. now its not the same even though ties are civil enough between you and those people.
im all for dropping those unnecessary people in my life YET i keep on with those people, not so much for my enjoyment but .. i actually dont know what for. maybe because i knew what we had before was so good and so enthusiastic and so maybe i hope for that same kind of friendship again. or maybe its cause i feel guilty that i, too, have changed and maybe it’s me that’s not the same .. or maybe it’s just that i want too much to be that best friend again. the one who those people who want to go to and are eager to hangout with. but look at me blab, this isn’t something worth that much writing.
i just don’t get why i’m still trying for the attention and the enthusiasm of those people.
When disaster hits the world … credit card companies take a swim in their new established pool of money.
The earthquake that hit Haiti requires an almost immeasurable amount of money to get Haiti back on its feet again. Broken infrastructure isn’t the only problem. There’s lack of water, lack of electricity, lack of pretty much anything that can easily sustain a person. Not to mention that the thousands of dead bodies lying around are spreading even more infections and diseases than a country is even supposed to handle.
Haiti is the poorest country in the whole western hemisphere. About 80% of the people live on two dollars a day. And what do some of these credit card companies do? They keep it that way, and make it worse. You think with their millions of dollars rolling in, they could allow more money to go to the people who need it. But no, they’re taking 3% of people’s donations because they somehow need that money for transaction fees.
I’m sorry, but I honestly cannot believe that it takes that much to cover those fees. Especially when money is being wired digitally. Come on, corporate. Get your selfish nose out of the golden gutter and show some damn compassion. Or to look at it from a fiscal perspective. When customers see the companies preventing all their money from going to the Haitians. There will definitely be some animosity. I don’t really care whether they do it out of their small hearts or to save face, but they should waive their fees. I’m not donating with my card unless the fees are put down.
