I have not posted in ages.....

Anyway, I just deleted any even remotely political posts because that in no way is the point of this blog and I'm completely a moderate and don't feel like dealing with people who want me to recruit me to their side.

As for updates on life I went to Long Island for the first time on Saturday to work a promotion at the Oyster Bay Festival. I thought that it would be really cute, but it was actually really corny and mad freezing. And yet, so many people were taking the hour and a half train ride from Manhattan to go there. Silly people. Anyway, I was getting paid so I could care less, I just had trouble understanding why you would travel so far for a little small town festival with an oyster eating contest when it was like 40 degrees outside.

I also went to a Ra Ra Riot concert in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Friday. That was complete awesomeness and I'll put up photos later today.

Oh and on last Tuesday I went to this completely awesome political panel hosted by MTV. Diablo Cody, Rosario Dawson, Larry Wilmore and a few journalists were there - biggest names being Luke Russert and Hilary Rosen. It was completely random that they had Diablo Cody though because she clearly wasn't that into politics and apparently was there because they were claiming that the "Juno effect" was going to make people like Palin because of her daughter and her response was like "If I knew that I would have so much power over people I would have made a movie titled 'Don't Vote for John McCain' instead." Which although a great comment, kind of summed up all she really was prepared to say. Nonetheless, still awesome to have seen her in person. Also, I was really surprised how seriously into politics Rosario Dawson actually was. I knew she was the spokesperson for Voto Latino, but I assumed she would only point out obvious facts about the organization like Natalie Portman did for FINCA when she spoke at NYU last year. I would like to say that I would be posting photos for that as well, but I'm sure MTV would have kicked me out had I tried for any.

My goal is that in the future I will just write posts immediately after I do things, even if I'm piled with homework and real work like I was last week.
