Espresso news update!

Things are becoming interesting for me recently. I just upped my anti-depressant medication to twice a day as per doctor recommendation and I can’t tell a difference quite yet. I got a stovetop espresso maker andit workd GREAT *twitch twitch*!!

I’m on spring break and have been fantasizing about taking hang gliding lessons when I can scrape together enough monies. I plan on going camping with my girlfriend in the desert for a couple days which should be awesome cause she has never been. I love the desert because you are always completely surrounded by nature. The silence can be kind of overwhelming, but it really is something to behold.

I’m so excited that my blog is taking off! I feel like I have some awesome friends to follow and that the community here is more supportive than I could have ever guessed.

In the news;

The UN passed the resolution to take ‘all necessary steps’ to prevent Ghadafi from harming citizens and French fighter planes were first to arrive on the scene quickly followed by US tomahawk missiles. In a frighteningly short amount of time the no-fly zone has been put in place by the international community. It feels like the US is making a kind of statement by having the French go first, but immediately following with military support. Who knows? Perhaps this is an extension to other UN permanent council members to step up and be more bold in excersizing control internationally? Almost as if to say, “Go ahead, we’ll be here to help. But know that this isn’t free and that we all need to work together on this.”.

I often find myself trying to find the US’s international intentions when I follow the news. Sure, NATO made the resolution, but I think the US had a lot to do with it. Also, the fact that US missiles were right behind French fighter planes….I can’t be the only one with that gut feeling.

  17. The world will join hands one day. Whether it will be the few or the many that remain depends on how much blood will be spilled between now and then.

  31. Hang gliding is amazing, did it in Turkey, if you ever get the chance, don't pass on it, it really will take your breath away! Thanks for the post.

  32. I'm really on the fence about this whole Libya thing. On one hand we are going in there with the premise of protecting citizens, but on the other its a war the US just can't afford right now.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ugh, another war is the least the US needs!
