This pink ribbon is everywhere this month.

It makes sense, it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It really is a great way to raise awareness… for one type of cancer that only women suffer from.

Not saying it is to be taken lightly! Not at all. The effects of breast cancer can be devastating and deadly.

But wouldn’t it be more effective to have an all-inclusive Cancer Awareness month?

Breast cancer gets its own month, color, catchphrases, definitely the most press and awareness. But what about pancreatic cancer? Lung cancer? Colon, prostate,liver?

I believe we should change October to Cancer Awareness month so that everyone can be encouraged by awareness for their battle, not just breast cancer.

I realize that it may be difficult to really do everything justice, but I really don’t get why this one cancer deserves so much of our attention when so many others are hardly talked about.

I don’t know, maybe these are just silly thoughts of mine. Comments?

Confessions of a Ninja Ballerina: Post-high school life

Hey it’s me again.

Yep, still alive here.

So, I graduated high school in May. Since then I’ve been kept pretty busy. Life has been happening a lot. I got a job as my church secretary.

It’s been going really well. I mean, it’s super easy. An eight-year-old could probably figure it out. But it helps out my pastor and my church and I enjoy it. So I’m pretty happy where I’m at.

Dance has been going well. Injuries have kept me from being en pointe for the past month and a half. I know. It’s pretty sucky. But I’ve been working at fixing them.

Anyone else have twisted pelvis problems?

No? Okay…

Things with my man have been going very well. We’re as happy as can be.

I have an actual social life now (Gasp!) I got my girls and we’ve been hanging out every weekend for the past month.

I also moved out of my house. That was kind of a big deal. I like where I’m living though. It’s a pretty nice place.I just like having my own place. Pretty sweet, really.

Of course, life is also stressful. Medical bills, gas money, money going out places I don’t want it to. It’s all okay though. I’m not really that poor and even if I hit flat broke I know God will provide for me if I need it. So I’m pretty chill about everything.

Golden Boy and I might be starting a blog together focusing on abortion and related issues. I’ll post a link to it once it’s up and running. I hope you’ll take a look. It’s gonna be pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

So… yeah! That’s what I’ve been up to. I’ll be back to blogging about random things I find interesting here shortly.

Bye!
