The rants and ramblings of a crafter/student/hiker/nature lover/life appreciater/dreamer/artist and more...I still get excited over the little things...(dirty I know)...I will eventually be posting my arts/crafts and various other projects I'm currently working on as well as posts related to or supporting any cause I am interested in or am wanting to raise awareness of.

I believe in progress not perfection, learning from the tough times and hakuna matata...

I choose to stay positive though not unaware of this world that is falling apart all around us.

“Of course, more than angry I am hurt. NYU was my home, my dream school, and I feel like I am being cast out with the garbage. I loved this place, and I did everything I could to make it better in my time here - including working with NYU Student & Labor Action Movement to start a campaign for better financial aid. But that didn’t matter. All of these point primarily to one central issue: students are not valued at NYU, but profit is. Here, students are nothing but the customers and the product - we are not people. I find that contrary to everything that I once thought this university stood for.”

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

I haven’t even watched 1/3 part of Cow Spiracy and I’m already in shock. How can something so important as animal agriculture not be all over the news. We have to do something. Not only for the animals but for the earth and ourself.

Peace. Love.
