Quiet Thoughts on the Future

My, how quickly time flies.

I've had a lot of thoughts running through my head these past few days, mostly about what I'm going to do after I'm done with school. To appease my parents(just my mother, really), I will need to attend grad school, but business schools do not usually accept students right out of college, so it will be a couple years. But what am I to do with myself in the meantime?

The question is somewhat rhetorical, as I know what I want to do, but those are all leisure activities. I should focus more on my career and establishing my foundation on which I will build and survive on for the rest of my life. As I am now, I feel like I am floating around aimlessly, without a future figured out(though I'm pretty sure that the family business will figure something for me).

I need an anchor of some kind. Something for me to push off of. What, though?

Soul searching has yielded little, but I feel like it's going to be one of those things that will sort itself out, or won't really matter practically speaking.

As I stand now, I have but one long term objective, that must be reached and maintained at any cost: that me and mine will live peaceful, happy lives.

In other news:

Obamacare passed. To the one idiot on my Facebook wall who actually cheered its passage: You liberal-media fed ignoramus. Go read the goddamn bill and stop cheering the danger you don't even understand. Then go read on all the constitutional processes and procedures it ignored and/or perverted to get passed. Go read all the bribery and backroom deals(with our money, might I add) the Democrats had to cut to get this passed. If the current Democratic Congress continues to use these procedures to pass legislation, we may as well hack off an arm to go with the two legs their bullshit has already cost us. You cheer for a bigger government, when we can't afford the one we have now.

Fiscal responsibility, transparency, bipartisanship...I would laugh, if it weren't so serious how screwed we are.

But not all hope is lost. We can still repeal, and a multi-state lawsuit is being filed against it, arguing it unconstitutional.

I don't know. It doesn't seem like Republicans are any better considering how they got us into this cluster fuck. Why can't politicians figure out how to work without party politics? Well, I'm going to blame that on Fox and MSNBC. Fuck them, and stop spewing their propaganda bullshit.
