Voting

Originally I was not going to vote, but something changed my mind. I think it was the fact that if I didn’t vote, I couldn’t complain. That feeling wouldn’t feel right in my opinion. I was educated on the candidates, so I knew who in my opinion could lead this country.  I voted for Obama.  He seemed to be doing a good job  in my view that is why I voted for him. This wasn’t my first Presidential election. My first one was back in 2008. I voted for Mike Huckabee in that election. He had great ideas that I liked. He wanted a small government, he is a Christian, and he had experience in a government office.

Time to vote!

Today is the most important date for American citizens, because it is election day for the American President!

This year, there are two nominees for U.S. President: Barack Obama (Democratic) and Mitt Romney (Republican).

Before the election day, Obama and Romney debated 4 times. I saw all of the debates via the internet. Both of them had their advantages and disadvantages, and I really admired them — they delivered their opinions and still kept calm whatever happened.

For me, I want to vote but I can’t because I’m an international student. However, I still like to talk with my American friends about their opinion for this presidential election. Some of my friends support Romney because they believe American should go back to work and not depend on help from the government. But some of my friend support Oboma because they think that president Obama leads the United States very well. I believe everyone’s political choices are their own and their right. I respect all the opinions for this election.

Even though I can’t vote tonight, I’ll keep praying for the results of this election.

Whoever wins this 2012 United States president election, I believe God will bless America and the leader.

Happy Election Day!

Hey all!! This week I have been celebrating my birthday week! My 22nd birthday is on Saturday, October 27! I am going to be honest, I kinda forgot about my birthday because sooo much is going on as the Art Show gets closer and closer.  The show is November 19, by the way. I hope to see everyone there!! Anyway, I am getting more excited as the weekend approaches. My best friend Jeannette shares her birthday with me, so it is so much fun. We have been giving each other little gifts each day, along with countdown letters. It is awesome.

On Sunday, we had to jump start our birthday week, so we ventured into the greatness that is Whole Foods for a treat. I got a slice of Vegan Pumpkin Pie, and Jeannette picked two Tarts; Berry and Key Lime Pie.

They were delicious, thanks for asking.

Today my boyfriend CURTIS is visiting me for my birthday! I have not seen him, in ohh,,,lets see…. 67 days???!? No big deal, who’s counting anyway right?? ;) We have celebrated 3 Kelia Birthdays together, but again, who’s counting? Me obviously.

Tonight is the Fall Masquerade Ball, where I will basically dance the night away and definitely be re-living my Senior prom. You guessed it, Curtis was my date,  same dress included.:) I CAN’T WAIT!!

Enjoy the weekend! I know I will!!

Halloween season is upon us again, and Fontbonne is giving me plenty of fun things to look forward to. One thing that is particularly holiday-related is the Fall Festival, which is happening on the evening of October 25th. The Fall Festival is an event that unites a bunch of Fontbonne student organizations in providing activities and food for students looking for an enjoyable Halloween-related evening.

Perhaps you’re wondering if the Environmental Club is one of the student organizations involved in the event? Naturally!! We will be doing a thrift shop costume contest. Next week we’ll be making a pilgrimage to GoodWill outlet to pick up a bunch of outrageous clothes and accessories, and they will be available at the Fall Festival for everyone to create costumes from. THE ONLY LIMIT IS YOUR IMAGINATION!! Prize for the best one! Who needs to spend a bunch of money on a silly costume you’ll only wear once? Be thrifty AND environmental – make a costume from second hand clothes and stuff you already have. Your wallet will thank you, the planet will thank you, and you’ll look tons cooler. I guarantee it.
