Well, here I am. Sitting in front of my computer in El Paso at my Mom’s house. My travelling is done.

South America – over. Crazy insane roadtrip around the states – over. Blond hair – gone. Most of my money – gone. Hehe. But totally worth it alt=” class=”wp-smiley” />

Next up?

Hangin’ out with the fam here for a couple months. Maybe substitute teaching a little. I’m planning on moving to Austin in January to work on a project with Charles and teach a cool dance/spirituality/meditation/something class with Karen. While the gypsy chapters are done, I’m really excited about what the rest of my year off has in store for me!

My Country Is Populated By Morons

It’s official. Four more years of Bush…god save us.

I have no love for Bush, and I feel more and more that I’m out of whack with this country. These exit polls are a very interesting read. They explain a bit about why people voted the way they did.

Couple things that caught my eye:

  • upper and upper/middle class voted bush, lower and lower/middle class kerry – not suprising,
  • whites voted bush, minorities kerry – again not suprising, minorities and the not rich get screwed over by republicans, if only more of us had voted everything might have turned out differently…
  • religion didn’t seem to play anywhere near as important a role as churchgoingness, the more you went to church, the more you voted bush

What really suprised me was people’s ideas about how the war in Iraq was going. 44% said it was going well And more suprising, and disheartening, when questioned about the Most Important Issue, my fellow Americans said:

  • Taxes (5%)
  • Education (4%)
  • Iraq (15%)
  • Terrorism (19%)
  • Economy/Jobs (20%)
  • Moral Values (22%)
  • Health Care (8%)

I’m moving to Cuba.
