how the coronavirus is testing our election system

elections

 

I know that I’ve been talking about the coronavirus a lot, but my blog is largely impacted by current events, and the coronavirus gives me a lot to think and write about. You can click here to read my other posts about the coronavirus if you are interested in the politics and the social impacts of the virus. However, this post is going to focus and go in-depth on one of the topics I mentioned in those posts. Elections. Not just the elections but the recent changes, the state governments, and the voters themselves. If you have followed me on this blog for a while, you would know how passionate I am about voting and the election system (even though I can’t vote yet). It should be no surprise that I have more than a few thoughts on what’s happening to current elections amid the coronavirus and social distancing. As always, I will provide some articles and resources for more information at the end of the post and feel free to comment on your thoughts as well!

what should the government learn from covid-19

strike_-3

 

When I say learn from this virus, I mean learn from the situation we are in and all of the effects it’s having. The government is not doing the best job handling the coronavirus and that’s why it’s not getting better at the same rate as other countries. It would be unfortunate if, after the coronavirus epidemic was over, we learned nothing from it or our failures. The coronavirus is showing us the clearly weak parts of our country and it’s going to make us deal with them, hopefully As always, at the bottom of the post I have included more resources and articles that I found very informative and useful.

how are we going to have a discussion if people don’t want to talk

feb 1_ (2)

 

Even after being called an “aggressive feminist” and “way too opinionated”, I still like to respectfully engage in discussions and conversations. I think they are necessary and I’m not afraid to contribute to larger discussions. However, I wonder, we have these discussions and try to raise awareness, but why aren’t things changing. Perhaps because some of the people that have trouble understanding aren’t in the conversations. That’s the main thing I want to discuss. How are we going to see and promote change if the people it would benefit, people that don’t understand, and everyone, in general, won’t talk or discuss?

Anyway, last election day, November 5th, I was an election page. In this post I’m going to discuss what I did, what I noticed and the experience as a whole. I know that I’ve been writing a lot about voting lately, but it’s because I have so much to say. Especially with this new experience, I want to share my thoughts and participation with the voting process. Let me know what other options I should discuss or if you want more voting things!

before you vote.

The Election is coming up! I know that I already did a post about voting, and I will definitely be doing more in the future, but a final reminder post would be good. Not only is this a reminder for everyone that is eligible to vote, it’s a resource page. I found a bunch of great resources that answer questions like what to bring on election day, where to go, how to decided who to vote for, etc. This post is a simplified guide to the basics of voting this Tuesday.

why reading the news is important

BeFunky-collage (2).jpg

 

I would never have thought, before these past few years, to write a post about this. I always thought that around age 13, everyone started watching the news, staying up to date, etc. I thought that it was the norm to know what was happening in the world. Sadly, I’ve seen so much ignorance and the overlooking of current events/ news. This post isn’t meant to call or shame anyone for not keeping up with the news. I just want to share my reasoning behind why reading the news is so important, especially for kids.

Hello Everyone! This is the January blog post of my monthly series. I did a post on Feminism, Me, Sustainable + Ethical Fashion, and a lot more topics.

Comment down below any questions you might have, but there are also more links down below.

BeFunky-collage-32

 

Hello Everyone! Through all the school, stress, and fatigue, I still managed to finish this month’s bullet journal.

I started out with the theme of fall food, but I ran out of ideas and changed it to fall in general. There was also some time to practice my calligraphy and my doodling skills. This might give you some inspiration for your bujo spread or maybe you want to start a bujo. Click on the month to see that spread,  August|September| October |.  Enjoy!
