Urgent security update

support:

Bad news: A major vulnerability has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr. Our team took immediate action to fix the issue, but you should still take some time to change your password, not only here but on any other sites you visit. 

You should also strongly consider enabling two-factor authentication. It’ll go a long way to ensure that no one besides you can access your account. Thanks, and take care.

Day 7: The Stall of the Career Woman

I see how far women have come over the years taking over male dominated careers. Just today I was reading this article about how well we are doing. Then I look around me and I begin to fear for the future. I don’t expect people to be like me. I’ve worked my whole life and I genuinely like it. I love to learn new things and I’m pretty content with my 9-5 job with paid vacation time. 

I’ve grown up in a strange community. Where I spend most of my time I feel like the outsider. I have these goals and dreams for my life that people see and think that I’m crazy and wasting my time. Girls in my community go to high school, go to bible school, work at my church, get married and start small groups for MOPS.This is why I have a hard time spending time with people my age, we never have the same interest and people don’t love my “shut up and do something about it” attitude when it comes to male-female relationships. 

Actually to be honest, that isn’t just with girls them boys are like that too which is why I refuse to date anyone. Majority of people here are still living off their parents playing princess or having kids, or still doing both. I love the people I’m surrounded by, they are nice enough and some of them genuinely good at what they do, but they live in this small bubble where it’s okay to be 40 with 3 kids living with your mom working part time so you can live your life at church. 

When I told my family the first time I wanted to go to law school a few of them literally laughed. Then helped me get into my current job which I enjoy but doesn’t really go anywhere. I’m afraid to tell them I’m rehashing my dream for law school. I worry about telling anyone. All I get is push back.

I’ve been out of college for 3 years, I think it’s time I went back and came back with something I can use. I really hope that in the future I can encourage other women in my community to do the same.

Day 6: Student Loans: Vain of my existence.

I graduated 3 years ago and I knew my student loans were bound to start again. But so fast, which I know opposes what I just wrote. Ugh, How do other 20 somethings do it? I have an adult job and looking at these bills sucks. I believe I’m due for a raise but not while in this “temporary position. Not quite sure what I’m going to do but pray some more promo gigs and wedding shoots come along :) Till then I’ll be at my moms eating all her food since I can no longer afford basics!

Day 5- What happened to “Lazy Sundays”?

My mom asked me if I was tired earlier and I said “no I haven’t done anything today”. I was so tired I had forgotten how long of a day I have. Sundays are one of my favorite days of the week next to Saturday.

This morning I got to go into church to be the service coordinator. Basically, this means I am the master of the microphones. I hand our speakers the mics, tell them when to head onto stage and pass on any notes to them about what they need to mention or do while on stage. I have been doing it a few weeks and actually enjoy really enjoy it. This morning I did have a small mishap when I forgot to turn the speakers microphones on. Luckily, they laughed it off. 

Then I got to meet with a girlfriend who came in from out of town. While Applebee’s is one of my least favorite places (unless it comes to Peach Long Islands) the company and service was great. 

After that I got to head to Lenscrafter’s to get myself a pair of much needed glasses. No more awkward run ins with walls and being 3 inches from my computer screen! I’m free to read and drive like a normal person! 

After that I came home started lunches for the week and laundry. So when I found myself zoning out to one of Bella’s movies I could say, yes I’m exhausted. That is also why this post is really like a journal. Just in case you wondered how the Jimenez’s do Sunday… this is it. If we don’t deserve a TV show I don’t who does! Except the Chrisley’s, I love them.

Day 5- I don’t watch the news because…

I was going to write a post about my upcoming exercise plans… then someone said this to me while I tried to talk about some current events. “I don’t watch the news, it’s too depressing.” 

I hear this phrase a lot. I spend a little time on multiple news sites, national and local, every day. So when I go to talk to someone about something I heard on the news, they’re fascinated because they hadn’t heard it before. I touched on this a bit in a previous post but I felt like it needed it’s own post. 

Ignorance is stupidity, when you tell me you don’t watch the news because they’re aren’t enough fluff pieces, I’m disappointed. The news isn’t just for happy stories, or celebrities new haircuts. The news is there to inform you of what is going on in the world. Did you know Russia invaded Ukraine? That GM is facing major charges with their recalled cars because they didn’t fix a problem that cost 57 cents? Did you even know GM was on trial? Obama is trying to give up American control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which assigns and maintains domain names and web addresses for the Internet.

People say, “oh that doesn’t effect me in anyway”. People have been killed by GM’s mistake. Russia could start a war against NATO aka us. There could be a tax for internet, or overly censored by the UN or another entity. 

But none of this affects you right? It’s just too depressing. But hey Amanda Bynes is really enjoying her spring break in Cabo! 

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. Martin Luther King, Jr.
