Serious question, and if people could think about this and discuss with me (politely) I'd be pleased:

Why does it seem like most people think that to be a socially responsible person who cares about their community, other people of the world, and the earth itself one has to be part of a group that pushes an agenda to force others to do and think what they believe is best?

Whether that group be democrats, republicans, libertarians, Christians, PETA, Greenpeace, etc.

Why is it that most people don't seem to care or have respect for individuals individually helping other people, without trying to force others to do the same thing?

I agree with teaching others about the ills of the world that you think should be alleviated, and showing, by example, how these issues can be helped/solved but when you get into pissing matches and "there should be a law" and making nasty accusations and such against the people who aren't doing the same things you are, or you spend so much trying arguing for people to "help" in the way you think are best are you really helping anymore? On an individual level, are YOU doing anything that helps your chosen cause, or at that point are you just bitching and hoping everyone else just does what you say, even though you won't even do it?

+Jeffrey Anthony​​​ on the parenting topic, and I guess this related:

Most of us with more than one kid seem to understand that, while a lot of the basics of our parenting technique remain the same from kid to kid, kids are different. Even kids in the same family.
And we can't raise one kid EXACTLY like we can the others.
I feel confident you understand this, because it becomes all the more apparent when you have kid with drastic differences, like normally abled kids compared to kids with physical disabilities, or neurotypical kids compared to ASD kids.

But even when a person has all neurotypical kids with no unusual physical challenges, your parenting technique varies slightly from child to child.

It's always amazing to see that these people in these parenting style "movements" can't seem to grasp that.

Sometimes I want to yell at people, what works for YOUR kid may not work for mine, what works for one of my kids may not work for another of my own kids. You know?

Shock of shocks, I know, but kids are individuals, too. Lol

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate when I say "my kid doesn't sleep through the night" and someone says "have you tried this, it worked for my kid, hopefully it will work for yours" but when I get "Do this. It worked for my kid so it will work for yours" it pisses me off.

Daily self promotion. :)
So, I made this thing.
I want to push forward with my photography, and I feel like I'm doing a pretty decent job in relation to experience and gear, but I acknowledge that in order to push the envelope and really get some of the most amazing things I've ever done, I need a little help...
I never like asking for help, especially when it comes to money, but I don't want to watch this adventure die as I leave the gate as so many of my others have.   I'm grateful for any help, even if it's just words of encouragement. ;)
Thanks for reading and please take a look!  Share if much appreciated. ^_^

Hey G+ how YOU doin'?

In my time away I learned how to knit and Tunisian crochet and I've been doing a ton of meditation. Pretty bad at knitting, but I'll get better eventually.

Wheeeeee!

I've been saying this to people for a while, and it's true: if you choose to vote, and you really want to see change or whatever you're looking for with your votes, you have to start at the lowest level possible. Neighborhood, school district, city, state.

If you don't vote, I'm not imploring you to.

Just saying, if you DO and you want to see some kind of real impact, you're a fool if you skip all the local elections and only do the national ones.
 
Too often, people feel checked out of politics — even at the level of their own city. But urban activist Alessandra Orofino thinks that can change, using a mix of tech and old-fashioned human connection. Sharing examples from her hometown of Rio, she says: "It is up to us to decide whether we want schools or parking lots, recycling projects or construction sites, cars or buses, loneliness or solidarity."

Giving up social media for Lent. 
Just kidding about the Lent part, but I do need a social media break. 
See all you cool cats in ... a while.
A week? couple weeks? a month? I dunno. Until I feel like it. 

Tag me on all the cool stuff so I have plenty to read when I get back. :)

It’s Friday afternoon during finals week, and two undergrads at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville are lounging together on a battered couch in the student center, watching cartoons. They’ve only met twice before, but they’re all over each other. Rae, a tiny pixie of a sophomore wearing a newsboy cap, nuzzles up against Sean,…

Yeah, it's awesome.
 
We know you are going to binge watch "Black Mirror," and when you do, you'll be totally freaked out. It's totally worth it.

Story
Tagline
mom, wife, co-creator of Just Cause Crafts
Introduction
I am a mother and homeschooler, and my family is the most important thing to me. 

My sister and I make and sell jewelry and accessories, find us on our site Just Cause Crafts , G+, Etsy, Twitter, and even Facebook.

I enjoy photography, Pentax cameras, crocheting, and making beaded jewelry (but I admit to not having any sort of objective idea of my skill level in any of those, and I could very possibly not be very good. That doesn't make them any less fun though :) ). 

I like helping people in need, and feel a sense of personal responsibility to try to  help the people in my society.  

I'm interested in nutrition, sustainable living, and learning and teaching my children as much as I can about as many subjects as possible.
Bragging rights
According to my 4 year old I'm: "like a fireman! Except you clean up dog poop instead of put out fires."

They have the best scones. Soft. Not all hard and crumbly and dry like one of the major coffee chains. Coffee is very reasonably priced. Service is friendly. Atmosphere is laid back and comfortable.

The description on here is a little misleading. While they do serve comfort foods like Mac&cheese, chicken & waffles, and battered cheese curds, they serve "gourmet" versions of them. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is vibrant but also intimate enough that you can have a nice date. The staff are friendly and attentive, but not overbearing.
