You are The Hierophant

Divine Wisdom. Manifestation. Explanation. Teaching.

All things relating to education, patience, help from superiors.The Hierophant is often considered to be a Guardian Angel.

The Hierophant's purpose is to bring the spiritual down to Earth. Where the High Priestess between her two pillars deals with realms beyond this Earth, the Hierophant (or High Priest) deals with worldly problems. He is well suited to do this because he strives to create harmony and peace in the midst of a crisis. The Hierophant's only problem is that he can be stubborn and hidebound. At his best, he is wise and soothing, at his worst, he is an unbending traditionalist.

Question who is corrupt

I was just thinking of the time that I first discovered that I was possibly more conservative than I and everyone else had thought. It was rather simple really. Have you ever taken those little political tests you find on the internet? I did love taking those for awhile. Maybe it was the idea of trying to find out who I really should be supporting. At that point I didn't really find myself on the side of the democrats. For instance, I always thought that beurocracy was really ineffective. Can anyone say that when the state takes over things that they run more effectively? Try to think of one.

The next point. I was no longer pro-abortion/pro-choice. I say no longer, because I use to be primarily because my parents are. What changed? New found understanding of life and the horrible effect that abortion has on society as a whole, for one because it is murder (most major point) and if you are one who won't believe that, there is also the point that it makes it where people do not accept responsibility of their actions. One way or another, the allowance of abortion is a major sin of our country.

Moving on, I had trouble understanding how I was a democrat at all. It was as if I voted for them for still having a fear of being labeled as a conservative or to be supportive of the republicans.... who have been labeled as corrupt. Then, I thought.... What proof is there of their corruption? I just took that as a given. The corrupt republican, who was controlled by the evil corporations that cared nothing of people. All they cared about were profit and anything to continue that profit. There was no true caring for the people of this country. So my view was to still vote democrat as a supporter of the people? Am I too far off from general thoughts of republican party. I thought to be a republican was to be stupid and to be closed off to the truth of their corrupt nature.

So the question comes, WHERE IS THE PROOF OF THE CORRUPTION? I was sitting at the computer a while back. Still professing myself as a liberal and I took a test that put my views as the same as Vice President Cheny. I was thinking to myself, are these really his views or is this his way of decieving the public. When I realized how damn paranoid my own thoughts sounded I decided to look further into his political views. I never found real proof of his corruption either. I just found the same paranoid response that originally popped up in my head that I kept questioning.

Before I knew it I started hearing the democratic party in a new light. I have a memory of being at a Dean political rally years ago and hearing people cheer over the gay rights. I sat still at that point looking out over the crowd. Forgive me if you are horribly offended by this, but that was never a point I supported even as a liberal. Just take it as my conservative biggotted family values that I was raised with (of course of you think that you obviously have no clue about my family). The only reason I even write that with an apology is because I've been approached with GREAT hostility for even slightly voicing that opinion.

The hostility is the reason I write this. Republicans are not stupid or corrupt. Many of them maybe prosperous capitalists. I had someone say that about me, that I was plainly a capitalist. Felt no insult there. What I think many democrats really need to do is to start to look at their own party when it comes to corruption and rethink of who it is that should not be trusted.

But now I have gotten use to some of my ideas being met with hostility or simply ignored rather than discussed. Whatever. If you don't care to listen, nothing will be gained. All I did was open my mind up as any good liberal says you should, and boom... I became a conservative. Funny how it works.

Now I'm just rambling on. Now I must go to sleep.

Writing is not something I've done in quite awhile. At least I've been use to doing the short story version. Now I plan to actually start to write a full story. Won't say to much more about it till it actually makes it further out than just chapter one. What I started thinking of once I started to write was what are the basic thing needed in a story line. I wrote a paper on the process of the story. I want to see how much I remember from this...

1. Start off in the original world, or the place where the hero had come from. This is where the hero had been in their home town or a place that is where they have comfort.

2. I believe there is some upset that is the next step, some challenge is given and the hero has to either willingly or unwillingly jump into the quest. I don't remember exactly what this step was called. What i do remember is that at this point in Star Wars it was when Luke was given the option of going on the quest to save the princess. In that sense he was the unwilling hero. He went because they had killed his family and he had nothing to go back to.

3. The journey of the hero I believe is the next step of the story.

For the life of me I don't remember how exactly it goes from here. I believe that there is a second conflict that happens that the hero must go through that leads to the final on with the enevitable resolution. The resolution must be done on his own without the help of friends or others to help. For instance, when Luke Skywalker destroyed the death star.

I'm going to try and go through and do a full outline. I don't think I'll trust my writing genius to guide me where my muse takes me. I think I'll be a little more realistic than that. I will let you know more as I have progress. Of course I have the assistance of my lovely husband.

Let's hope it works out! I have to say being a writer would definitely suit me better than recruiting. If nothing else comes out of it.... At least this can be entertainment.

Vacation to Manhattan

Vacations are never as long as you wish them to be. I just visited Manhattan for the first time. The city was wonderful and I already can't wait to go back, but for the most part my week seems to be a vacation planning gone bad. Not that the vacation was bad, but lets say it was not what we had expected. It was a good pay period as we took off. We both work by commission and lets say it was a better than average to start off a vacation. One thing after another, by the time we made it to New York we were already broke. I'm not sure why, but that meant we spent the vacation walking. I took the vacation with my family, they asked me what I wanted to do. Considering the condition of finances I could only honestly say that I wanted to see the city. So that is what I spent my time doing for the past week, walking through Manhattan. Lets say I have blisters upon blisters, and I was not in the best conditioned going in. I have no reason walking at all on a normal basis. Recruiting is not the most energetic of jobs. So it was quite an experience to walk so much in such a short time period.

I've been back since Tuesday and I've really felt wonder lust once again. I have to admit that is one reason I was taken by Arthur in the first place, and that is why I am in South Florida. Now, I feel like the city. Maybe New York is too expensive, but I just want to move to a good city. I liked the convenience of the city and the people going back in forth in suits and other business attire. I liked the atmosphere of the New York. I would also like seasons. I'm not meant for the tropics. My allergies and my skin can only take so much of this sun and whatever else there is in the air I am allergic to.

I remember having long conversations about just leaving and going somewhere else. No matter where it was I lived. The problem now is I have a job, which I have recently been promoted at. My husband has a job and is trying to get his business going. All are reasons for me to stay and to be happy staying.

All I need is to be patient. Maybe it will pass as everything else does. How does one remain content with such drives? Arthur says that if I get placements (commission) that I will be happy again. We will see.

I will see if I can load some pics.

1 Peter 3:13-22

13Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear[b]; do not be frightened."[c] 15But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 17It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 18For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, 19through whom[d] also he went and preached to the spirits in prison 20who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, 21and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge[e] of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

I need to move further north...

The South Florida summer has definitly set in. Humid and hot, but much better than Texas. I understand why people still escape this place during the summer. It's not just the threat of hurricanes. Right now I wish I was further north. I don't really care where, just as long as it is colder than here.

Most South Floridians are out at the beach baking out in the sun. I'm not going out there again till I get a big umbrella. My skin won't take it otherwise. That is what I think I am doing tomorrow. But so far going to the movie was a relief yesterday. We went to see Evan Almighty. Great movie! Very funny! I was really suprised to see bad reviews of it. I would say you definitly should ignore the reviews and go and see it.

Now I think we are about to go see another movie. Till later!

On with summer

The rainy season has started in South Florida... Oh how I miss regular seasons. Though I know that I, as I've heard all do quite quickly down here, have completely adapted to this subtropical climate. I can't take even the slightest bit of cold weather. Now we are back to the season where there is not the unbearable Texas heat, but there is the feeling that I am constantly in a sauna. The most pleasant part of this time of the year is that all snow birds have flown north for the winter. Everything is now quiet and the traffic has let up. I'll be surprised if there are any news developments down here till about November or December.

Talking about the news, how about all these new presidential candidates? I really don't know myself. Don't care much about the Democrats side. Clinton or Obama? Not in a great situation one way or another. I haven't landed yet on a republican candidate I support. Too many of them so far. Maybe a few will be weeded out soon enough. One I do know, Giuliani isn't my top pick. I don't see him as one to win the hearts of the Christian Right anyway. Support of abortion will definitely kill that no matter what else he supports. Though to touch more on that I definitely need to read more into the news.

My job has recently won out over school. I guess working about fifty hours at a full time job and trying to be a full time online student does not work. I truly did not know that my job would be that much of a work load when I first took it. Though being a physician recruiter is good enough for me right now. I guess being a grad student will wait for now. That does mean though that I have time on my hands in the late afternoons again.

Maybe I'll blog more. I guess we will see.

News bias

This was in the news section, Conservatives can't explain Ann Coulter away

I started off with interest in the news field, print journalism. The reason I started putting up the Ben Sergent cartoons when I posted earlier is because the college paper I worked for he also started off there. I wanted to work for the news because I actually thought it was a good cause to give people the facts. I lost interest once I realized that was never the intention of those in the media. I should have realized that when studying the history of journalism....

We have reverted to Yellow Journalism with all news sources today. It is the time of posting opinion instead of the facts, and since all are getting the same opinion in the news they assume they are the facts. One example is above link about Ann Coulter. This was the top story for US news section on Google. It is a link to a BLOG first off. Second, it is opinion. It is very misleading to put it on the news section of Google.

There are certain things that I think that the media portray as fact that are simply opinion. The President of the United States is portrayed as stupid. It is thought as fact that he lied to the country about weapons of mass destruction. It is said that he violated international law with going to war with Iraq. It is said that it is scientific fact that global warming is caused by humans and can be controlled by humans. Like it or not, all of these are opinion.

I would go further to explain, but as usual my time is limited for posting. I have an ongoing frustration with the news and all of the trash that is given to our public. Political Correctness has taken over and it has effectively silenced the majority opinion of Americans. This new direction is against Christianity and religion in general. It is against standing up for standards of morality. This is the only opinion as shown by the news. Any thing else is portrayed as bigoted or ignorance. I seriously worry about the direction that we are going in and fill there is no way of correcting it. Does anybody else think that it is wrong where the country's media is for the downfall of its own leaders and is against the military actions taken by the country. I know it is not just the media, it is the left. I was just reminded of the Left's agenda through looking at the Google News. I think that history will not look well on this period, not because of the president but because of it appears to be a new period of Yellow Journalism.

Happy Birthday to El!

I just realized as I looked quickly at my archives that my blog is two years old.... Well, it is starting it's third year tomorrow. That is one reason why I can't abandon this thing. I started the blog right after my second semester as a grad student at Texas State. Thus the reason for the address: "blogfromsanmarcos". That doesn't quite fit anymore. I was single at that point. I drank at that point and I will be suprised if I ever have a job that easy again. I started this primarily for pictures and art. It still has that purpose at times. When I look back though I realize there is much more to it. The comments between my friends and I that give away our lives, the random facts of my crazey life and then when I finally met Arthur. I admit that I didn't keep up with this as much once I was at the point of getting married. There are things in your life that are just not for everyone. One thing I was somewhat vocal about was changing from democrat to republican. Though I have to admit once I did changed over I don't bother much with political argument. You find that most are do certain they are right that they won't listen to reason. What reason is there to really try? Oh, I still will everyonce and awhile.

Here are some pics through the years:

First pic on my blog.

This is it for now. Till next time!

West Coasters, East Coasters... They're the same.

Texas owes the United States for just about everything. Ever since American emigres helped to foment a rebellion against the Mexican government of General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana, other American citizens have regularly come to the aid of Texas without so much as a demand for a quid pro quo. During this 1836 rebellion, American volunteers, many from Tennessee (including former US Congressman Davy Crockett) went to Texas to aid the Texian rebels with little more than the expectation that they would get to fight a little bit. Their efforts helped to create the Republic of Texas, not that they get much of the credit compared to 'real' Texans.

Crockett monument

I would put more, but as showing from my lack of posts I don't have much time. I'm still keeping this up though I really don't have the time right now. I have a twenty page paper due by the end of the week and I have been doing well at keeping up with class. I don't wish to change anything. Business is good and life is good. I just get disturbed by stupidity as usual, which the quote article above shows... the whole article does. I was trying to think of the best title for the post, what do you think?

Hey, maybe I'll add more in a week or so. Hope all are doing well!
