Does Age Really Matter?

If you've read the title of this post, you probably already have a few different answers to this question. It could be as simple as yes-or-no or as complicated as yes and no. You could have an entire speech about how it doesn't matter. You could have a speech about how it does matter and pedophilia is a real problem in the United States.

Pedophilia is defined as a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. The keywords here are "primary" and "exclusive", but there's other key things to know about pedophilia, especially in the United States. For the condition to be diagnosed, an individual must either act on their sexual urges or experience significant distress as a result of their urges or fantasies. Without these two criteria, a person may have a pedophilic sexual orientation but not pedophilic disorder. An estimated twenty
percent of American children have b…

May 2018 Television Cancellations and Renewals

So I decided to take a break from blogging about cancellations and renewals, especially since the summer doesn't have a lot of those. So I'm lumping together May, June, and July into one blog post. As far as Summer television, the only thing I've really been watching that's "new" is The Proposal and Cloak & Dagger. Both are okay. I'm not obsessed with them. Anyways, I'm dying for the Fall premieres to happen. I miss my stories.

Media Reform

On Facebook, there was an article posted approximately two years ago. It was talking about police officers and it used very pointed language. I forgot about it until Facebook informed me about this post I made after reading the article. It is as follows:

I generally try not to speak on topics like this online. But, I read this article and it just irritated me so badly.

In all seriousness, I have many problems with this article. It's not because of Alton Sterling, though he's another addition to a exceedingly large issue. The media spins articles like this so hard. They use specific words to grab you by the stomach: "police killings", "targeting", and others. If you heard police fatalities or any other combination of words meaning the same thing, it doesn't resonate the same. Also, I would love to see a breakdown of police shooting fatalities. Media has listed 500+ so far this year, but does that include people like that Texas mom who murdered her daught…

Goals and Resolutions 2018: Update 6/28

I started a job and I've been working my butt off. I have been slacking on some resolutions, but now that I'm making an extra income... hopefully, I can complete more of these. Fingers crossed. 

Goals and Resolutions for 2018 Marathon/RunI would like to either run in a marathon or a fun-run type activity. I am not good at running or walking for that matter, so that is one thing I'd like to do in 2018. I feel like training for it alone would help my health.Go to the beachAs a person who lived near the beach for 14 years of their life, I never liked the beach. I went to one in 2015 (the Bahamas) and fell in love with it. I want to go this year with Jude since he has never seen a beach (except in pictures). Create a fragrance free bath bomb recipe.I am allergic to fragrances, but I like the idea of bath bombs. I want to create a fragrance free recipe and make a bunch to put on an etsy shop.Learn to dance. Take a dance class, even if it is just once or consistently. It is so…

I don’t like beer: Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale

Image
Let me start out by saying... I don't like beer. I've never liked beer. I want to start. Tonight, I'm trying Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale. It was suggested by a coworker. He gave me a lavish explanation and I nodded as if this made total sense. It did in theory, but (to me) beer is beer. There is varying degrees of beer from tolerable taste to absolutely disgusting. The latter ends up down the drain.

You can watch my taste-testing video here:


Initially, the Monk's Cafe was amazing. It is in a bottle though so it didn't stay as cold as it needed to be. The first few sips were amazing, but as it became warmer, it started tasting like any other domestic beer (in my opinion).
Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale *Drink ice cold* 6.5/10
I just want to find a beer that I love 10/10.

Life Update 6/13/18

Hi busy bees! This is Dori here, updating you on my life. So buckle up, buttercups.

There really hasn't been much change since May! So I graduated with my master's degree. The debt I have is scary. Education is great, but, HOT DAMN, it is not free. Next stop: doctorate?

I got a full-time job! I'm a shift supervisor at Rite Aid. It's rough working 40 hour weeks but it's been a month and I've learned so much! I close for the first time by myself tomorrow and I'm nervous and excited to be on my own (+cashiers). I get paid decent and my store manager and assistant manager are the coolest. I often forget I'm at work and feel like I'm working on a project with some friends. I just wish we were allowed to utilize social media. Because it's the nicest Rite Aid with so many products, especially liquor.

Otherwise, things are pretty quiet/the same. We are going to start kicking butt on the remodel of our house. We have some things we want to change and …
