ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

I'm going to post these sales here first :D Before I go to the comm with the Pokémon items which include:
-Multiple attack kids from the last set
-Elesa Cardsleeve
-2 plush
-An Arceus Insect plate zukan
-Some canbadges
-Some Pokémon planes

But if you know someone not on my f-list who would like any of these, feel free to let me know! Trying to make like $70 if possible so I'll likely make another sales post.

I AM WILLING TO DROP THE PRICE IF YOU'D LIKE, and I'd apply the same price to EVERYONE whether they've already made their choice or not.

OH  I have can badges for you :D We could sort that out in the comments! Sorry for taking forever!

Also I am open to haggling! And it may take around a week or so to ship, it will depend on how much I need to ship!

Under here!Collapse )

College is like living in a dating sim, half crushing on like 4 different girls atm haha. But tonight just thinking about random crap and whatever I realised I think I might have a little bit of a crush on a girl who's been my best friend for about 3 years. Whoops. 
I dunno how to react to that, I need to think it over a bit more, especially since she has a thing with someone else, but I dunno...that thought popped into my head and has sorta stayed there since. But she's one of the few people I can be myself around and really enjoy being around....idk TEENAGE BOY PROBLEMS

I hope you're all well<3!

Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

 I thought I'd post some prom pictures! I know most of you will want to skip it but WHATEVER PLEASE LOOK ANYWAY!
Also can I apologize in advance for my awkward smile on a lot since IT GOT HARD TO KEEP SMILING also we always had like 54325746 cameras on us so we may be looking in the wrong direction xD

The limo was pretty damn awesome on the inside! This isn't all of us who went in it as one of our friends turned up late xD We got picked up from a friend's house and had pictures in the park next to it beforehand! A LOT MORE HERECollapse )
Then we had the after party 8U We went to Jordan's house and it was a load of fun! I tried a shot for the first time and it wasn't very nice :U I felt no effects of it since I'd drank a lot of coke/water! Also I don't tend to drink so I had nothing else other than a sip of someone's when I was thirsty, but I hate the taste of alcohol, I was just too lazy to make my own drink XD
Someone downed a cup of vodka (HOW STUPID SRS) and tried to eat a swingball, which we have on film, but then we had to watch him and some people stayed with him all night since he was sick >: 
Still prom was the most amazing night I've had in a really long time, possibly ever, I wish I could relive it so much since I know nothing is going to top it.

I've been feeling a bit awkward about telling people, but I'm homosexual. I try to keep up the act of schoolgirl loving but really I prefer boys.

Thought I'd let it out :(

I want to get myself some Homura!!
Okay so:
- These will be $8 EACH
- They are released at the end of July 2011, so they'll probably reach me in August at some point.
-The secrets are NOT AVAILABLE TO BUY. I want to wait and see what it is, e.g if it's Glasses Homura I'll want, or you could be let down by buying it or something, idk, the secret will probably be online before the box even reaches me!
- I'll buy if we get all claimed/near all claimed.
