Dear Diary, Sept.5/84
School is turning out real good. I like it so far. We get every teacher this year exept for Mr. Denhamer, Mr. Swail, Mr. Johnston. I hope dad let's me go to the dances this year. We get lockers this year. My com is 49-36-23. Maye and Nelly are beside me. Troy (a new kid) is below me. My home room teachers are Mrs. Bragg, Mr. Kiddie. Well so far it's going good! So far.
It is another beautifully sunshiney morning here in Grande Prairie. ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️
I was wondering what to write about today. I had written a funny little rant about Covid. Cuz, ya'll I'm so fucking tired of this shit.
Life works so magically 💫 because I got onto Instagram and this post was the first post I saw. A lady whose Instagram handle is "resilientmama" posted this "If everyone was jumping off a bridge would you?"
She proceeded to put into words similar to how I feel. So I am going to quote her words now:
"This was the question that parents would ask usually to teach us to think for ourselves
As a child we are taught to not follow the crowd just because "everyone is doing it"
We are taught not to fall victim to peer pressure
Here we are where thinking on your own, making decisions for yourself, not following the crowd off the bridge and joining in on taking the experimental drug is now virtuous
Thinking differently has now become discouraged
Making a different decision than the herd is now looked down upon
And letting people know that when they jump off that bridge there is shallow water now makes you a conspiracy theorist
I will always stand for the truth
I will never be silent
I will always make decisions For myself and my family based on my own research and my fierce intuition
I am raising my three powerful children to question everything, think for themselves, stand in their power, never live in fear, be brave to walk the path less travelled even against adversity
I will stand and fight for you until you wake up because the truth will come out it always does
I won't say I told you so. I will welcome you with open arms, because I once too fell for some of the virtuous lies."
So, we all choose what we want to believe. When she says making a different decision than the herd is now looked down upon. I feel that to my core. The same freedom that comes 'without' a side of backlash that other people have is not afforded to me. People can post their "Yay! I got my Covid shot" pics but heaven forbid if I posted "Yay! No Covid shot for me!" pics 🤷🏻♀️ I asked Ken why I couldn't post my pics and he said because we have the unpopular opinion. And that just makes me sad. I guess I could go ahead and post them, but I really don't care for the negative and rude comments that I would no doubt receive.
I also, am not a conspiracy theorist. If you want to lump me into that category, that's your choice. I am however, in tune with MY intuition. And right now... it's a no go on the vaccine for me.
If they make me take it so that I can travel in October then I will get it. BUT THAT IS A WHOLE OTHER BALL OF STINKING TURDS....
We are all free to choose what to believe. Choose what is right for YOU. Be kind and respectful of others who do not share your opinion.
That is all.
Let's just all be kind. Kindness is the key.
K. Gotta go check out the food trucks! 🤘🏻😜🤘🏻
