"Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful..."

Hello All!

It's been a while since our last um...rather controversial post. Today I'd like to bring us out of the political arena and into a more fun topic...SNOW!

Yes, as you may have heard on the news, Kimchi and I have been here in the eye of biggest blizzard to hit DC in years.

To some of you this may be no big deal, but to's pretty darn awesome.

I live in Southern California...I've never seen snow fall in my life! I've never gotten to play in snow, walk in it, eat it...nothing.

So this Saturday morning when I woke up and saw mountains of snow outside my dorm, I was pretty excited. But also a bit scared I must admit. I have no idea what to do in a snow storm!
Anyway, it was fun to walk around in the snow and throw snow balls.

Luckily, I was not one of those people who had to cancel flights because of inclement weather so i actually enjoyed this opportunity. Now, however, I am more ready to go home to gorgeous sunny California and wear shorts again...yes. SHORTS IN DECEMBER!

Which reminds me, I'm leaving for home on Monday (after my last final, wish me luck!)...on the train! I know, I know. That's an unnecessary amount of time. Really, it's only two days. Plus I get to travel across the country! So, I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes and maybe (hopefully) post some pics!

A gay Texas?!

So, when I first saw this article on Yahoo today, I was like WHAT?! Houston elected a lesbian mayor?! This is in Texas!

Now, let me get this straight. I love Texas. Everyone knows this. BUT, no one can argue against the fact that Texas is a very traditional, Republican state. I mean, sure, Texas has its liberal hotspots, like Austin, but I'm sure that everyone agrees with me when I say that same-sex marriage will most likely not be legalized in Texas until the Supreme Court rules that it must.

Anyways, I personally believe that the LGBTQ movement is the civil rights movement of our generation, so I am sure that you can imagine what my reaction was. I quickly clicked on the article and just gobbled it up.

Here are the facts:
Annise Parker is Houston's newly elected mayor. Houston became the largest U.S. city to elect a openly gay mayor when it did so on December 12th.
There were two main candidates running on Saturday's run-off election: Parker and Locke, both Democrats. Parker edged out Locked with 53.6% of the vote.

Granted, the election only had 16.5% turnout. And neither campaign made Parker's sexual orientation the focus of their campaign, which is how it should be. I commend both candidates for doing so. (And I'm sure both candidates also did so for their own self-interest, but let's just give them some credit now.)

But still, good job Houston! Kudos to you!

Leave your comments below. I'd love to hear what you think about this election. :)
