V-Day 2010

The Vagina Monologues was a smashing success! We were able to raise just over $3,000 dollars for the local women's shelter, Hilltop's Latimer House, as well as Grand Junction's Family Planning center. Not to mention it was a ton of fun! I am looking forward to next year when I can get even more involved in stopping the violence against women around the world.

I also found a new book by Eve Ensler, creater of the Vagina Monologues. It's called I Am an Emotional Creature. It's similiar to the Vagina Monologues but it's targeted towards teens and young women. It's a very good read and is drawn from interviews with all kinds of girls in the US. I ordered a copy for $8 from Amazon.com.

"Nothing is more important then stopping the violence against women." -Eve Ensler.

Until the violence stops.

mother, n; my idol.

My mom actually started up a blog and said that it was a lot of fun and she really enjoyed it... so I thought that I would try it out as well. I love journaling but I seem to type much faster then I write anymore and I am often closer to a computer then my journal at home.

I also thought that this might help me through the process that I am going through. Hopefully it does, because I won't lie. I don't particularly enjoy this process. One day it'll be over though.
