In the past few years, legal marijuana has been presented a few times, but failed miserably at voting time. It really isn't a shock it didn't pass, especially when one considers just how conservative the parts of Illinois that aren't Chicago are. In this past election, more of the state voted blue than in previous … Continue reading Illinois, let’s legalize, but let’s do it right.
Oh the last month. Its one of those months that you look back on later in life and think "fuck yeah that was hard but YAY WE DID IT" It started with an argument; my dad's health has been hit and miss and its causing a lot of frustration for everyone. The fight lead to … Continue reading The impossible month.
When you present the bible as absolute fact, your child can no longer look at history and science without already having a bias. You block them from learning a great deal about the universe and space (remember just because the planets are there, doesn't have to mean your God still can't be. Space is BIG), you block them from learning about how the Earth was formed and how some of the most amazing and beautiful natural monuments formed. Again, just because they know the science behind it, doesn't mean their faith in God has to diminish.
When I got pregnant with Kali at 18, her dad and I never discussed what we would do about religion; he and I got married and divorced in less than a year, we really never talked about it, neither of us ever went to church so....that was basically that. When Damian and I got … Continue reading Religion and the Kids
That seems like a weird thing to say. It sounds like you can take a goal and pluck it from nothing and *gasp* there it is. In your hand, like a crystal ball showing you what can be. Not a prophecy. No. Those have a fogged sort of ominous feeling. This ball of awesome looks like … Continue reading Manifesting Goals
If you have ever at any point run across our Instagram you know we are medical marijuana advocates, but do you know why? Probably not. Unless you're an advocate yourself you probably think we use medical just to get high, a huge vast majority of non patients feel that way. I always knew that but this … Continue reading Let’s talk about medicine.
Months. That is how long I searched. Originally I started with a search for an all together secular curriculum; I sorted the short list and wasn't satisfied. When all of those felt either far too structured or too watered down, I switched to a search to piece together a curriculum based on subject. I found … Continue reading Curriculum Frustration
I planned to have 2 posts out by now, one about medical marijuana and the other about creating my own home school curriculum, but the past two weeks have literally ripped off my ass, and then handed it to me. By handed it to me, I mean by way of a fastball to the face. … Continue reading I had plans to write…I really did
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted out of here. I can't really explain where that feeling comes from; I just know that I have never wanted to permanently stay here. I suppose it's because I have never felt like I belong here, never felt the "need" to let my roots stem … Continue reading Moving Dreams
On Wednesday I decided I needed a break; a break from the continuous news stream and if you're in any secular groups on Facebook, the constant bickering of cliques. I took 2 days to collect myself to read, and breathe and exist in a state of blissful ignorance. First we are going to look at … Continue reading Blissful Ignorance for 1
