My new favorite feminist site

I was reading Feministing, and they had a post about a new site for teenage feminists, by teenage feminists, called The FBomb.  I went to check it out, and it’s pretty cool.  It was started by a young woman named Julie Zeilinger, who is about my age.  The FBomb shows that teenage girls are actually involved in the world and have something to say about it!  It’s a community blog that anyone can write for, and I wish I had something of substance to write about, because it would be amazing to see my own writing on a site like that. 

Recently, The FBomb has posts about Cameron Diaz choosing to be a “non-breeder” and Midwest Teen Sex Show making a pilot for Comedy Central

Quest for an automobile

I’ve been on a quest today to look at cars online.  First, I went to vehix.com, and I really like their way of searching for what I want, but after I felt that I looked at everything within my requirements, I moved on.  I didn’t really like any of the other sites, but maybe I was just burnt out on looking.  I would really like to actually go out to a car dealership and compare cars there, but Mom won’t be able to do that for a while.  Since Mom will still be at home when school starts, I’ll probably be driving her car to school until I get my own.  Mom says that I definitely will have a car soon, but I have my doubts.  I’m keeping my expectations low, so that I’m not completely disappointed if I don’t get a car this year.

I usually keep my expectations low for everything in life, and some people might see that as being pessimistic, but for me it’s just keeping myself from getting my hopes too high.  I’m not saying that I don’t hope for anything, because I do.  I hope for what I want, but I don’t expect it.  That way, if I don’t get what I want, I’m not too disappointed because I figured that would happen, but if I do get what I want, then I’m even happier because it’s like a pleasant surprise.

I think that Mom is hoping for me to get a car in September, but we’re keeping our eyes open now.  I think that we should have been looking at cars all throughout this summer.
