NY Passes the law on Gay Marriage

I am happy that this has happened. I think this a major step for the United States. With that being said, I also know that not too many people are thrilled about this decision. They feel that marriage should obviously be between a man and a woman, and that's nice and all. But I think that part of the problem is close-mindedness. We all live in this country based on the principles that we can do what we want as long as we can put our minds to it. Now, I am not a lesbian but I do have lesbian and gay friends. I couldn't sit there and be a friend to them and say that they shouldn't have the same rights that I have. After all, it wasn't too long ago that having an interracial couple was frowned upon in this country and unfortunately in certain parts of this country, individuals still think that that is sacrilegious.

I just want to let it be known that I am not trying to enforce my opinion on those of you who may read this blog. I am simply saying that through history our elders have fought so hard to preserve our rights to freedom. Any historian can tell you that all the sacrifices that have been made was against the injustices that were and are still out there today. Through out time people have fought for their rights, didn't matter if it were the Civil Rights Movement, The Women's Movement or the events of the Boston Tea Party. Each event had a common goal and that was right to have rights/liberties. Therefore, I am proud that New York can finally see those rights as for what they are and nothing less.

Today is most definitely a triumphant one.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
