I hate saying TGIF so without sounding too cliche I am very happy that it is Friday. This week has been a hard adjustment from summer to homeschooling full-time again. Especially with Roo doing highschool workload. I think I am going spend the weekend (or part of it at least) trying to organize next week a little better so it goes a little smoother. I also need to clean off my desk and work area so she can set the laptop up near my computer when we are working together. It’s kind of hard to get things done when you are trying to work over the top of play doh creations and crafting supplies (ahem Merle). Did anyone else have a rough start this week?

I swear I am having a complete fail with Zara at the moment. I still have yet to spend all the gift cards that I got for my birthday because I keep ordering stuff and having to return it. I think they cringe when I walk in now. Although I am pretty excited that animal print is so big again this year because it means I get to bust out my animal print jacket soon. And speaking of that jacket, they have one that is very similar at Zara that I included in my round-up above. Are you still loving animal print?

  1. There are two specific behavioral issues that seem to be plaguing society these days: no impulse control and the expectation that everyone else be EXACTLY like themselves (as in extreme prejudice). There are a number of reasons why these issues are so pervasive, worldwide. Frighteningly, uncontrolled population growth can only exacerbate the problem.

    Interest in others seems generally to be superficial, because at the core more and more people are self-obsessed (across generations). This extreme egocentrism manifests itself from indifference to violence toward others, particularly when others are perceived to stand in the way of self gratification (whatever this means from one individual to another).

    On a large scale, there is a tug of war going on between two spheres of people. One group is trying to separate from the larger pack to create a more peaceful existence, while the rest seem hellbent on literally fighting things out…and in a somewhat mindless fashion.

    Frankly, it all scares the bejeebers out of me. The facts about teen bullying only reinforce my concerns about the human race going forward. We all need to check our apparently large egos at the community door.

    • Really well said Ardith. It’s absolutely horrifying that this the direction it’s going even with all the knowledge we have. I can’t wrap my head around it and have got in to arguments with people on this very topic which literally goes nowhere. Part of life is to learn and better yourself, and I can’t imagine what kind of arrogance one must have to think that they are exempt from that.
