President Trump

We have a new president!! As weird as it is to write “President Trump” I am happy that the Obamas are out of the White House. It was time for change and now that change is upon us.

In the four days since he became President, Trump has actually done a surprising amount of work. He already defunded Planned Parenthood!!!!! That is such a victory for Bible-believing Christians everywhere.

However, with President Trump’s inauguration came a resurgence of American stupidity. There are riots, women marching around in vagina costumes, protests calling for impeachment, and hatred across the nation.

I would like to get one thing straight. While I support Trump for President I do not condone his past actions. I don’t like his sexist comments or the fact that he cheated on spouses any more than anyone else. However, that doesn’t mean he’s a terrible President. He is flawed like the rest of us, like every President before him. At least his flaws are out in the open now, not released halfway through presidency. We as a nation voted him in already knowing these facts.

Issue 1: Rioting

The American People have the right to peaceful protests. Protests are a way for us to let those in power know we are unhappy. Protests do not include weapons, beating people, or destruction of property.

Rioting is a way to show those in power that you are a whiny child that didn’t get their way. Newsflash: destroying private property doesn’t hurt the government, it hurts the person whose property you destroyed.

The riots serve no purpose except to show the Republicans that Democrats need to chill out, especially the liberals.

Yes, I’m aware that there were protests after Obama was elected. Some were hateful and rude and obviously those aren’t okay. However, there were no week-long riots. There were no freeways blocked.

This is unacceptable behavior. The rest of the world is laughing at the American liberals.

Issue 2: The women

LADIES. TRUMP HAS NOT TAKEN ANY OF YOUR RIGHTS AWAY

HE DOES NOT PLAN TO.

NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE YOUR RIGHTS AWAY.

You already have all the rights a man does.

Wage gap? I wrote a post explaining the myth. Look here.

I also hear women crying about not getting paid maternity leave. You’re not working, you can’t expect most jobs to pay you to stay home with your newborn for months. It’s not discrimination, it’s business. And men don’t get fraternal leave of any sort, even if his wife is sick or he suddenly finds himself a single father.

Women demand to feel safe walking alone at night. As much as it sucks, that’s not something any one person can change. Rape exists and the people that rape other people live below the law. They don’t care how much women work to “de-sexualize the body”. Which, by the way, is stupid. I like feeling sexy. I like feeling beautiful and attractive. Feminists are so confused because they spout that men sexualize us too much then turn around and order men to find every body type desirable. Make up your mind.

Also, rape does not only happen to women. Same case with domestic and sexual abuse. It happens to both genders. But feminists only fight for women. This movement is NOT ABOUT EQUALITY.

If you are reading this thinking ‘But I’m a feminist and all I want is equality’, then congratulations, you have it. You shouldn’t call yourself a feminist anymore, you’re just a decent person. The feminist movement is no longer about equality. They want things that men don’t need, don’t have, don’t get. It’s now about women getting everything they want and being treated special.

It truly sickens me.

All in all, I think we need to give Trump a chance before deciding whether or not he’s a good president. It’s the same fairness and decency that was expected to be shown to every president before him. It’s time to grow up and look forward.

And pray for our new president. He has a big mess to clean up and a lot of hatred and pressure against him.

I hope my fellow women, and the men who support feminism, realize how unreasonable they are being. You are hurting your entire generation with the illogical and unfounded misandry that you are spreading.

The Return of the Hoopla-Chiatto

It’s summer yet again which means work. As some people may recall, I work in a seasonal hotel’s gift shop and espresso bar. All the awesome people should remember the creation of the Hoopla-Chiatto.

In case you’re wondering what a Hoopla-Chiatto is, it is a triple-shot latte with almond, hazelnut, vanilla, caramel, and Irish cream syrup in it. It’s delicious and the sugar alone will keep you going for hours.

Now, sadly, the Hoopla-Chiatto will not actually be making a triumphant re-entry into the world of tourism.  We have switched to Starbucks ( 😡 ) and I no longer have either almond or Irish Cream syrup to use.

I know, this news is devastating. But do not fret! There is hope to come for I am determined to create something almost as splendid. It might even be a frappucino. There are endless possibilities.

Chin up, dear readers. One day the Hoopla-Chiatto will enter back into society as a socially acceptable drink . However, the world just isn’t ready for it yet.

In the mean time I’ll making macchiato’s (which are no different than cappuccinos) and drinking sludge ( espresso + coffee)

Have a fantastic day everyone!

Confessions of a Ninja Ballerina: Bad Days

Some days are just bad.

You wake up and you have a headache, you’re just in a sour mood, your coffee didn’t even taste good, your hair’s a mess, you can’t find anything to wear, and for pity’s sake you can’t even get your eyeliner to look the same on both eyes.

Then you have to go to work.

Let’s be real here. Your boss doesn’t like it when you come in with a bad mood, your co-workers don’t like it, and the employees don’t like it. You have to get over it, but how?

In my case, it’s especially hard to find a minute to breathe because my job is watching and teaching 40 7-12 year old public school kids. But I have found that locking myself in the bathroom for a minute to breathe does wonders.

Really though, the first step in getting past your bad mood is letting yourself. Sometimes we get stuck in our grumpiness and we kind of enjoy the self-pity. Too bad. Be open to smiling a little.

Let your co-workers cheer you up. If you’re friends with any of them, they’re probably already trying. If you despise your co-workers (I hope you don’t. It’s miserable) then at least let their complete foolishness and ridiculousness cheer you up.

Filter out the bad employees. The rude comments, the frustrating situations, the immature arguments, everything. Don’t hold on to it. It’s not worth it. Instead pay attention to the friendly smiles, fun exchanges, and if you work with kids, the random hugs and odd conversations.

It all boils down to what attitude you choose to have. If you are intent and being sucked into this bad mood, never to return, then nothing will cheer you up. You have to be open to the good things happening around you and let them influence your attitude.

I hope you all have a really good day. 😁
