This blog was started, and is intended to illustrate that environmentalism happens through small acts, is not difficult, and that it does not always have to be some big life changing event that forces you to live in the tree tops with no electricity. All that being said, one of my small acts was to start this blog to gain some friends to help me save the world.

Call me lazy

Alright a few things, one I am not sure if I am "back" or not, and  two this post is less environmental and more a chest relieving exercise (you know getting something off my chest, I am a clever girl) so I will just get right too it.  I have been in a righteous mood (just ask the people I live with) the last few days dealing with what has become my new favorite catch phrase, first world problems.  Yes woe is me, and if you would like you may join in on my pity part, bring whatever party favors you like.  But as I listen to the news every morning I realizes how insane I am, and how unimportant my problems are, and I try to get over myself.  And then when I think about it I realize how lazy I am.  But maybe in this rare case lazy works.  As always I will try to get to the point.  Current events have become just a stream of bombs, blow ups, and shoot outs.  It is so sad that there is that much hate in the world to do all that stuff each other.  It is sad that we can focus so much on our made up differences (yeah I said made up) instead of focusing on our similarities.  I don't care where you are from, or what you look like, or what you believe.  I am just that lazy.  And it is not that I do not care about other people, I really really do, I am just too lazy to muster up enough energy to hate them because they do something I don't.  I feel like it takes way too much energy to hate, and aren't we supposed to be conserving energy right now (bam! just worked in the environment).
If you have ever traveled there are two things you most likely have noticed, one the modern world is very global and you can get the same crap in most parts of the world as you can get in your own home town (thanks giant corporations for taking over, I mean uniting), and two people everywhere need the same basic things to survive, water, shelter, food, clothing, and happiness.  So what if one culture puts a different spice in there food or wears a different article of clothing.  Enjoy it, because those differences are to be celebrated, and seem to be fading.  Oh and the other reason is because I am too lazy to dislike it.  Seriously people move on.  Stop blowing everyone up and stop blowing up at everyone.  Yeah you don't like what I do and I not super fond of what you are doing or saying, BUT WHO FREAKING CARES.  So I think we should (myself included) get over ourselves.  Deal with real problems, like those who do not have water or food (maybe due to climate changes, man I just brought it around full circle again) and stop creating more problems.  Stop focusing on differences, come on be lazy, save some energy so we can start fixing actual all world problems.  OK I feel better, and bit smaller, and more humbled in this giant ever expanding universe.  And I send out warm lazy wishes for some energy efficient world peace.
