I just wanted to repost this because it’s cute :)

Jesse Pinkman: You either run from things, or you face them, Mr. White.
Walter White: And what exactly does that mean?
Jesse Pinkman: I learned it in rehab. It’s all about accepting who you really are. I accept who I am.
Walter White: And who are you?
Jesse Pinkman: I’m the bad guy.
So many police officers are infamous for using excessive force on minorities. Police in Colorado, however, are now garnering headlines for pepper spraying an 8-year-old, not once, but twice- sounds pretty excessive to me. Add children to the list.
The little boy, who was attending a school for kids with emotional disturbance issues, threw a temper tantrum and reportedly ran around the class room with a piece of wood, tossed a couple of objects around, and said he wanted his teachers to die. No other students were in the classroom.
The teachers locked themselves into a closet and called the police. I would have done the same thing. I, however, would have expected the police to use a much more appropriate tactic on a child.
The police resorted to pepper spray immediately, before attempting to talk the child down (which has been done in the past and worked).
What I’d like to know is how are you going to justify using immediate force against a child, especially an emotionally disturbed one, who you are trying to assimilate into society by teaching to not be violent?
This example goes beyond the fact that sometimes police resort to unnecessary tactics. It just goes to further demonstrate that people our society truly does give up on these children at a young age. And that is exactly why they grow up to be criminals.
Okay, so I’ve taken 5 minutes out of my extremely busy day to blog about this because it makes my blood boil.
Amanda Bynes has just hit #1 in the Yahoo search engine- so she currently is the most searched item.
And why, you ask?
I wanted to inquire about this, as I forgot the actress even existed. I thought she might have gotten in a car accident. Or maybe she was diagnosed with cancer. Or maybe she was caught in the bathroom doing blow with Charlie Sheen. Or better yet, maybe she signed up to be a part of the Charlie Sheen orgy crew.
Amanda Bynes’ little dog just died. Yes, she became one of the most searched items in the world because she tweeted that her “dog is in heaven.”
Now I’m not trying to be cold-hearted, I’m a bigger dog lover than most. I do feel sorry for her. In fact, I wish the world would have paused when my Moonboots got sick.
But really though, this is news?
You can’t buy
The kind of confidence
That confidence can buy you.
In case you didn’t know, it’s National Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Week! That means you should hurry onto Youtube and struggle through watching the Sara McLaughlin ASPCA commercial. And donate money to important animal causes, of course.
I am currently sitting on the 2nd floor of my school sporting an orange ribbon (the color to represent this week) and tabling for the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, trying to hand out materials and get donations for dogs and cats affected by the Tsunami in Japan.
No one is really into it. Except for me, of course.
But then again, I am one of those freaks who can name every breed of dog in the American Kennel Club.
Anyhow, in celebration of this important cause, enjoy these photos of my little angel sporting her snuggie. And not allowing me to make the bed or hang up clothes after doing laundry.

I’m really not shocked that a Miley blow up doll has hit adult store shelves now that she’s “barely legal.” Speaking of barely legal though, I’m curious as to the legality behind this. Miley is most definitely suing, probably in an attempt to protect her image.
But what did she think would happen when she strayed away from Disney to “move her hips like yeah?”
This company is definitely profiting off of Miley’s name and “likeness,” as these dolls were all sold out within 48 hours.
If she settles for royalties she can at least keep that “bad girl” image she went for in the first place.
