    • I May Not Make RTX2015

      4 years ago

      DAAthren

      So as some of you main know who follow my Twitter and Vlogs on YT, I had decided to spend an entire month in Austin for not only RTX but to try to find a job down there and ultimately move, starting fresh. Technically it's cheaper to rent a room for a month than paying for a hotel by one's self in Austin. This was all dependent on me getting my taxes and my college refund...

      Wellll, DeVry screwed me over, delaying the college refund I should have been getting so I could go. I might STILL be able to go, making the move for the month, but it's looking like I would be cutting it close. Like, the end of July close. I'm not one to do anything last minute so it all depends on what the government does with the money they "seized".

      I know I haven't been here very much the last few months but that's because I've been super busy. I moved from Camden Ave back home with my Mom and now I'm planning on move back out from my Mom the beginning on March (hopefully).

      I've transferred schools (going from DeVry to University of Phoenix) over Christmas break so that's been crazy and now I'm doing the waiting game for my W-2 to get here so I can file my taxes.

      With what happened to Monty, it has really hit it home harder for me that this year I don't want to go through the same cycle I've been through for the last 2 or 3 years. This year is all about me, myself, and I and I know for a lot people that seems really REALLY selfish but, for those of you who know about everything that has been going on with me behind the scenes, it's EXACTLY what I need to be this year.

      My main concern for this year is to just focus on my education and pick up a part time job somewhere AND to spend a month in Austin, Texas. While I'm down there, OF COURSE, I'm going to be attending my very first RTX (woot) and I'm going to try my hardest to find a part time or full time job while I'm there. With some luck, I'll be moving to Austin permanently by the end of September if not by the end of August its self.

      Once that has happened, my main goals then will be, of course, to continue and complete my degree program at University of Phoenix, fix my credit report, and work on being able to apply at a work and/or student visa for the UK for 2017-2018. My ultimate life goal (as of right now) is to be a permanent resident of the UK by 2020 and once I achieve that, I want to open my own business in the UK. I'm in a toss up between wanting to be part of the BBC Three team or if I just want to open my own little gamer hobby cafe somewhere and call it a day.

      Either way, I have plans and goddamnit I'm going to complete my plans. No more Ebbie who sticks her neck out for people who don't care about her. No more Ebbie whose indecisive about what she wants to do. NO MORE EBBIE WHOSE AFRAID TO FOLLOW HER DREAMS! I'm doing this. I'm doing it for Monty and I'm doing it for myself!

      2015 I DON'T THINK YOU'RE READY FOR THIS!!!

      He turned in the doorway. "What, son?'

      "How could they do it, how could they?'

      I'm tired of my country...

      I'm tired that 50 million Americans live in poverty. I'm tired that people are so complacence with the world around them. I'm tired that our President has to fight paid off politicians to do just ONE good thing in the years he has been in office. I'm fucking tired that gay rights and marriage equality is still a debate in America.

      I'm tired of talking with my family in Ireland and my friends in the UK and they are APPALLED and SHOCKED that my country is so uncivilized because the social problems we are having now have basically been wiped from their world for years now. Some things weren't even a debate over there to them.

      I'm fucking TIRED of knowing there are 1.8 million children that will be starved this Thanksgiving season because nearly 2/3rds of the jobs on the market won't pay their parents enough to afford food and shelter at the same time BUT they make too much money to be able to qualify for food stamps. I'm FUCKING TIRED of knowing there are 50 million Americans right now that live below our poverty line and according to other civilized societies 158 millions are what they considered below living standards.

      DID YOU FUCKING HEAR ME PEOPLE!?

      158,000,000 million out of 316,000,000 people in OUR FUCKING COUNTRY live on ridiculous wages that other countries in the civilized world find to be unacceptable and that people in their own country would be given government assistance where as here they are laughed at and said to have enough.

      Did you know our country is one of the few that actually charges people for college/university level education and our idiotic country is the ONLY ONE THAT CHARGES THE RATES THAT WE DO. In fact, in a lot of the countries that have KNOCKED US OUT OF THE TOP SPOT FOR BEING THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY, college/university level education is COMPLETELY FREE!

      Did you know that our country is the only country where you could actually get arrested for feeding the hungry or be able to sue someone for saving your life with CPR? Our legal system is so fucked up that foreign drug lords prefer to do business here in the States because it is EASIER punishment here than in their own home countries.

      Did...Did you hear me good then? OUR COUNTRY IS CONSIDERED THE TOP PLACE FOR ILLEGAL CRIME BECAUSE OUR LEGAL SYSTEM IS A FUCKING JOKE...

      Yes...yes I'm upset about the Ferguson decision because it is a PRIME example of how fucked up my country is and why moving to the UK to further my career choices is super seriously in my cards right now...

      And to those people who say "Oh you shouldn't be upset. It doesn't matter because you can't do nothing about it" or "You aren't a lawyer so shut up about things you don't know about'.

      No, FUCK OFF because I don't need to be a lawyer to know that something FUCKED UP happened in our legal system and if no one actually gets upset about something unfair happening then nothing is EVER going to fucking change. Sorry...but not FUCKING sorry!!!

      ******

      I don't agree with the rioting that is happening in Ferguson but, in the end, with the way American society is...it was bound to happen.

      For there to have been a different outcome in Ferguson something had to give from both ends. We all know if the public march had been truly peaceful, they probably would have been tear gassed or crowd controlled by the very police force that got away with murder. The Occupy Movement proves that.

      The crowd is acting like idiots though and they're now the bad guys and they truly became villians the moment they brought their wraith done on innocent small town businesses that had nothing to do with the corruption that is wide spread in our nation. But all out peaceful options have been exhausted. Voting doesn't change anything. Look how hard our President struggles to get any of his good will done...

      What the fuck do we actually do that will ACTUALLY work? Because peaceful protesting will ONLY work in a society where the government will actually listen to the people that are voting but...our government hasn't truly been ours since the MLK/JFK years.

      In the end, big business owns our government and BB doesn't give a damn if we burn the country down because they'll still have their billions of fucking money.

      History repeats its self if there is no one to heed its warning...our society was built on bloodshed and it will go out the same. I plan on not being HERE when it does...

      Some of you will call me a traitor. I call myself a decent human being...

    • 7 Things You Might Not Know About Me...

      4 years ago

      DAAthren

      1) I have Bipolar Disorder with Suicidal Tendencies. No, this doesn't mean I want to off myself every day but it does mean I am prone to feeling worthless and will sometimes set myself up for failure. I trust people that I know I shouldn't and I don't fight hard enough sometimes for things I NEED.

      2) I don't have a birthmark. The last time I checked 1 in every like half a million people are born without one, making it slightly rare.

      3) I'm Black, Native American, and Irish. I don't have freckles on my face but my arms have been covered in them since I was 2. I also have a path of deep red hair on the crown of my head and my hair is several different textures though I have pretty define curls when I let my hair grow natural, long, and without relaxer treatments.

      4) I consider myself to be an Indigo Child. Too many "interesting" things happen to me for me not to believe it. You can look that up in Google or Wikipedia as you like.

      5) My ultimate goal in life is to own a gamer hobby shop somewhere in the UK. I'm thinking either Wales, London, or Ireland.

      6) I'm a "switch" in sexual turns. You can look that up as well on Google or Wikipedia.

      7) My ultimate fear is a tie between never having children and dying alone

      Sooooo I have to tag the first five people on my friends list. Sorry guys if you have already done this!

      You go about making yourself breakfast when you're still half asleep and you realize once you got caffeine in your system that you made beans on toast and a cup of Earl Grey with milk & sugar.

      What makes it worse is that your roommate had left you a full American breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes, and ice coffee before leaving that morning...

      Yup...have any of my American friends out there had a total British moment? Let me know below!
