I’ve been spending most of this morning going through all of my internet things (LinkedIn, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter) set up for real adult life. I am easier to find now, and I try to use full sentences in my posts. (still, I feel about this old)
I’m at a very unsure part of my life right now. I think I know what I want, but based on every source of information I can get my hands on, I shouldn’t be too attached to any plan. Everything changes rapidly. In four days I graduated, moved out, got on a train, and ended up in LA, all with minimal issues.
(Victory dance for that one!)
Now I am applying to places like a mad woman praying that everything works while I look for money that doesn’t exist. Where am I going to live? Where am I going to work? How will I get money for a summer that is interrupted in the middle with a 6 week long training in New York?
(This was the back of my Club’s shirt this year. Fitting, I think)
Oh well. For the third time, I am “starting over” on Tumblr. This will probably work this time. At least, I hope so.
Especially for college aged students. Pearson owns my soul. Between all the tests I took to get into college, the textbooks I’ve had to buy during college, and this Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA), I bet I’ve spent over 2000 dollars on this company. This cannot be legal, and I’m sure it is unethical.
Already one American cardinal has found that his new pope is all business, intolerant of scandal and ready to root out the spiritual sickness at the very heart of the Roman Catholic Church. Boston’s Bernard Cardinal Law was at the epicenter of the 2002 sex abuse scandal which broke in the American Catholic Church. He fled to Rome and became the archpriest of the Basilica of Mary Major and recently retired from that lofty post. Friday morning Cardinal Law encountered Pope Francis at the Basilica where he still maintains his Roman apartment on church’s grounds. The Italian media reports that Pope Francis immediately expelled Cardinal Law from the Basilica and is forbidding him from ever crossing the threshold of Mary Major again. The Mexican-born disgraced American cardinal will be banished to a monastery to live. Other cardinals who may soon feel Pope Francis’ swift justice may include Roger Cardinal Mahoney, for his role in the American sex abuse scandals on the west coast. The retired Los Angeles cardinal has already been stripped of all of his public and administrative duties by his successor Archbishop José Gómez in California. However, amid much controversy Cardinal Mahoney participated in the recent conclave. Not so with Keith Cardinal O’Brien who distanced himself from the conclave after he resigned as the leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland following news of his moral failure.
