So here's my beef...

Ok, so I have heard this message before and been like wow that's rude, but last night when i was on the subway I heard this message over the loudspeaker and was soo irate.....
Here's the message:
"Attention all passengers in a wheelchair, in order to exit at a certain stop by wheelchair you must be in the 6th car of the train at door 1 and 2. If you are not on that train then you must get off at another stop cross over the ramp and switch to a completely different line."
Now obviously that is not verbatim, but it is the main point....
Come on people... First of all, how is anyone supposed to know what car they are in? I can't count from the inside and there were no signs as far as I could tell on the inside. Not only that, you are supposed to be accomodating everyone, how are you going to go and make the handicapped people get off the train and then cross over a ramp then get back on another line, just because you can't accomodate them. I'm sure it is not that hard to open up all the doors on the train so that someone who is in a wheelchair can get off.
I'm going to need to find a way to do something about this, DAMN YOU PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.....

Rising Fever

So I'm pretty sure I was just sick, but hey...why wouldn't I be sick again, it is..after all the lay of the land. So I don't know if I have a fever anymore or if the room I am in is just UNBELIEVABLY hot....
I keep having all these things I want to write about and never have the that I have time I don't know what to write about so I'm just going to play it as it comes.
So I'm in NYC, and I'm working at an interactive advertising agency and I absolutely love it. Besides being a camp counselor, I have never loved a job soo much in my life. I'm learning more than I ever imagined and can't wait to learn more everyday. So that's a plus. And I LOVE the people I work with.

But the following is what I've learned about life that I wish someone would have shared with me:
Now matter how you thought something would happen, how you pictured it, it will never live up to your expectations. It is better not to have any expectations because then you can't get hurt.. (a lot easier to say then to do.)
I've made some new friends and reconnected with some old ones, But I never thought that the ones in-between would vanish.
That no matter how much someone thinks they love you, if they don't understand you, and can't take the time to, then sometimes love isn't enough.
That some parts of growing up absolutely suck, but it's not about what happens to you, it's how you handle what happens to you that matters.
That nobody will care about you the way you want them to...unless you let them.
That my family will always make me the happiest, flaws and all.
That everyone deserves to be happy, and sometimes the only way to get there is to finally think about yourself.
That it's OK to be who you are, because every single one of us makes the world go round.
That people change and sometimes they lose the necessity for you in their life, or the capacity they need you in their life.......and that's OK.
That life is nothing more than what you make of it, and until you realize that..the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is light-years away.
