4 Things that make me mad:
- People that think that vaccinations are optional.
- Not a single study has shown at all that vaccines were related to autism
- Lots of studies have shown that vaccines are definitely not related to autism
- Even if vaccines caused autism 100% of the time, here are your choices:
- child with autism
- dead child who also probably caused the death of some other people as collateral in the process
- Spreading out vaccines only increases the amount of time your child is not protected from disease and also increases the amount of time your child can serve as a good vector for the transmission of disease…thank you morons for perpetuating diseases that we could have eradicated years ago if you would just turn your brain on once in a while…oh, I’m sorry, did you manage to realize I was insulting you? Well, you kind of deserve it for putting the rest of the world at risk by refusing to vaccinate your children in a timely manner.
- People who are extremely rude and entitled…although I was never interested in retail pharmacy in the first place, my experience with retail pharmacy lets me know that a huge perk for clinical pharmacy is going to be not dealing as much with rude and entitled people…the thing with working in a pharmacy for kids though is that in order to help kids you have to figure out how to deal with their parents…and if the parents are that rude and entitled to a stranger, I can’t help but feel sorry for what the kid might be experiencing at home or be learning from that parent…
- Any situation in which the person who was hurt is the one getting punished while the person doing the hurting gets to play the victim role
- Abuse of anyone happening in secret (or, I suppose, not in secret)…but it’s even worse when it is happening to a child. It is NEVER okay to intentionally hurt someone, but it is even worse when you do it to a child. No one deserves it, but really? You are going to hurt a cute adorable child?
4 Things that make me really thankful
- I have a job I love at home.
- I have goldfish and aminal crackers in the pantry and cookies and coffee ice cream in the freezer (It’s the little things).
- This story…it is a REALLY sad story, but it was a good reminder that it could have really easily been parallel to my life over the past almost year. I was definitely never suicidal, but if it weren’t for like 6 people in particular who mean a lot to me, I think it would have been really easy for things to go differently…I am strong, but I really think that if I hadn’t had these 6 people in my life that I might have gone down a different path either giving up on my passion or getting dangerously close to suicide…that’s a forward statement, but I am a people person. I am an extravert wrapped in a thin shell of introversion (in other words I can be slow to warm up but I am a huge people pleaser and LOVE making people happy and just being WITH people fills my heart…isolation and silence are SO hard for me)
- When I presented my idea yesterday to add bike shopping to my list of things to do my parents looked up what the current prices looked like instead of discouraging that idea…not that discouraging my ideas is always a bad thing–after some time to really think about it, it probably is a reasonable idea to get a new car this summer instead of next summer seeing as how I have no guarantee of what state I will even be in next summer and while parking is expensive, it does guarantee never again spending half an hour frustratedly trying to parallel park in the biggest space within 2 or 3 streets of my apartment…haha…#spendallthemoney…not gonna lie though…I have trouble with the whole prices go up over time though, so I am still 80% convinced that I am going to get a new bike on sale for only like $125…when I am very much aware my current bike which I think was purchased when I was in high school was bought on sale for more than that…but in elementary school when I was buying a bike I got it on sale for just over $100 and that is the price tag that my brain is convinced that I will still be able to find…but just like the outdated prices for milk and apples that I have to ignore because girl needs to eat regardless of cost, since I want a new bike enough, I’ll ignore the price and just get it…(and this one will remain in the garage when not in use so it won’t get rusty like my current one)
