I am so sorry for my inexcusible lack of blogging for the past almost three weeks. The problem? I didn't have any time and the few times I did have a spare moment, I couldn't remember my password. I almost lost my blog forever! But then I realized my password was saved on the laptop! I've changed it, so its all good. I know what you are thinking - but Meghan, why didn't you just have them email it to you? Well that is a good question and the answer is, the email address that I used to start my blog is not longer in use. So I was sad, thinking that my blog had died an unfortunate death, but I have resurrected it.
A lot has happened since I lost posted, but I can't remember most of it. Here is a short recap of my life since my last post.... Halloween, party at Maggie's, very fun. Had my parents over for dinner, had Andrew's parents over, work became unbearably stressful (still is), a lot of school work (which you will note I am not doing right now) and that's about it.
I won't get into work here because you read about people getting fired for complaining about work in their blogs and I can't afford to be fired, but when you see me, ask me about it. I would love to bore you with details.
School is the same, getting to the end of the semester so of course projects, papers, and finals are coming up. Boo. I hate that when you are in school you can't really enjoy Christmas. I hate that I have two more falls AFTER this one that I need to deal with school. (that's right, ladies and gentlemen I will have spent 4 fall semesters in school before I am done. But if I think about that, I will start to cry.
So the citizens of MA cast their ballots on Tuesday, and I was pretty upset with the way they voted. I don't want to think that the majority of MA is uneducated and made an idiotic choice in the prefernce for govenor, but Deval Patrick WAS elected, so I almost have to think that. For the life of me, I don't understand the appeal of him. He is going to raise our taxes, give illegal aliens licenses AND in-state tuition breaks? Umm... what the fuck were you THINKING Massachusetts? Why don't I get an in-state tuition break? I am currently attending a state school for my MBA. I don't get a tuition break because I am a legal citizen and pay my taxes? Right, the same taxes that you are going to raise. FYI. I really think people were that gullible that they thought he had decent ideas. He doesn't. FYI. He is going to take your money and give it to illegal aliens. Just so you know. That is not going to help this little "Mass Exodus" problem that we are having. The last time I checked, having young professionals leave the state in droves and taking their taxes with them was not healthy for the economy of the state. The more they get taxed, the quicker they are going to leave. I heard a guy on the radio on Wednesday and the D.J was asking him to say two ideas/programs of Deval's that he liked. He said Stem Cell research and couldn't come up with a second. Well, ALL FOUR of the candidated supported stem cell research, so that wasn't a Deval thing. So basically he couldn't come up with a thing that Deval stood for that he liked. I will admit Kerry Healy wasn't my first choice in govenor, but the only thing that really made me question her was her stance on gay marriage. BUT, I used my head and realized that she would never be able to get rid of it in MA because it is such a democratic state. But MA has spoken, Deval is the govenor, and when he is taxing the middle class to death, please don't complain about it to me. I didn't vote for him.
Also - How stupid do you have to be to believe the ads against question 1. really. First of all the "statistics" in the Vote No on Question 1 ads were not only made up, but they were twisted to make it seem like they were worse than they were. WINE IN GROCERY STORES PEOPLE!! WINE IN GROCERY STORES!! How much can the government possibly regulate us? Should they tell us what we should wear? What jobs we should have? What our salary should be? Hmmm.... sounds like communism to me!!
I have to get out of MA. Not just because I like my money and don't really feel like being taxed so our Govenor can hand it over to criminals, but because I just do not understand the rest of the population in Massachusetts. I am going to see if my brother has any room in the car when he gets the fuck out of this state. :)
So that is my rant on the MA election. I know it sounds like I've gone all republican on you, but I'm really not. I'm still the moderate conservative democrat that you all know and love. I'm just alot more fiscally conservative than before. Of course Ted still got my vote, and I still hate Bush! But that's more because he's an idiot than for his politics. And no, I will not discuss it at the coffee shop on Friday or Saturday night.
Anywho, I'll move on. I know I am not as liberal as most of my friends, so I'm ranting to people who don't get me :) I will accept any comments as to why you think Deval should be govenor. I'm actually interested in what some educated people have to say about it.
Coming up in two short weeks is Thanksgiving! I can't believe it's almost 2007. I was so excited when 2006 came because I was FINALLY going to get married! Now I'm married, broke, and boring. hmmm...... maybe the single life has its advantages! Nah.... who would make my coffee in the morning and get excited about Numbers with me? I wonder what 2007 will bring? But that is really a post for about a month.
Again, I am sorry about the lack of blogging, but I think I have fixed the problem. And I had to get my rant about Deval off my chest. I will be happier in my next post, I promise.
