Centering of the century

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.

"She did not plan; she merely let herself go, and the overwhelming life in her did the rest. It is only when youth is gone and experience has given us a sort of cheap courage that most of us realize how simple such things are."

Ragged Peak Sunrise Reflection (by Rob Kroenert)

"[The modern Western economist] is used to measuring the “standard of living” by the amount of annual consumption, assuming all the time that a man who consumes more is “better off” than a man who consumes less. A Buddhist economist would consider this approach excessively irrational: since consumption is merely a means to human well-being, the aim should be to obtain the maximum of well-being with the minimum of consumption."

"Female voters in the US have been called “soccer moms” and “security moms”. In 2004, single women were “Sex and the City voters”. Now – because apparently women can’t ever just be “citizens” or “voters”, or more likely because conservatives prefer to call us names instead of delving too deep into women’s issues – we are “Beyoncé voters”. Bow down, bitches.

Most single ladies would generally be thrilled with a comparison to Queen Bey in any way, shape or form, but the cutesy nicknames for politically-engaged women need to stop. Surely pundits and the political media culture can deal with the collective electoral power of the majority voting bloc in this country in some better way than symbolically calling us “sweetheart”, complete with head pat."

"So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female."

World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport’s Most Dominant Players: Women (via cypher2)

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if soccer/football became the first sport to go co-ed at the professional level. There really isn’t any reason it couldn’t be. It’s one of the only sports where the men and the women are about the same size and the violence level is pretty much dead even in their separate leagues as it is now.  When I still played all of the best players on my team also played on a regional competitive co-ed team that was beastial. Men and women routinely play on the same team at the organized informal level all the time. I think it actually improves the game because the teams are well rounded. The usual differences people trot out to explain why men and women shouldn’t play together usually just mean that team members can do their specific job better or the game is more interesting to watch because the competitors are using different tactics. IDK, if USA Soccer is ever looking to organize a forward thinking international invitational event that people would want to watch and the US stands a good chance of actually winning, an all-star co-ed match would be a fantastic idea.
