La Vegetariana Loca

Here are some random ramblings of a girl that will probably end up in an insane asylum sometime in her near future...Kookookachoo. She loves her Queen, she loves her Beatles and her Who and her Zeppy and her music in general. She loves her writing. She loves love. And she loves you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

So, I've been a terrible blog mommy...

But I'll probably be a terrible mommy period. XD Could you imagine me with kids? They would listen to Led Zeppelin in the womb, be dressed in little onesies with the Yellow Submarine on them, raised vegan (Yes, I plan to go all-out crazy with the vegging when I get older)...Interesting children.


Are you beginning to understand why I don't really want kids?

It's not that I don't want them, I guess. It's just...I want a really busy career. I want to write, have to meet deadlines, be really, really busy. But if I had a family, I'd either a: spend too much time on my career, which would be unfair to my family, or b: spend too much time with my family, which would be unfair to my career. I dunno...Maybe I'll change my mind when I get older.

XD Earlier, I got told by a newly-turned 14-year-old that I should have kids. "You have the hips for it!" Then she went on to say, "Oh, they're bundles of joy! They're so sweet! I want at least three! Why don't you want them? You're just going to have a boyfriend and a bunch of cats, aren't you? You should have kids! Wait until your career gets moving..." Blah. Blah. Blah.

My answer to her? "They smell funny."

I have nothing against kids. I like them a lot, actually. But those are other peoples' kids. It's different...Besides, I guess I've seen women get pregnant so often and then they have to give up their career or education or whatever...I'd shoot myself in the foot if I had to do that.

Do I want to get married? Meh. Maybe. But kids? Something major would have to happen for me to change my mind on the stance I have right now. Maybe I'll adopt when I'm 50. Perhaps then I'll have my three children: a Chinese girl, a Russian boy, an African girl. I don't know. XD But it seems kind of selfish to me (and it always has) that there are so many children around the world that don't have parents and go hungry and need a home, and yet people still "try" to have their own kids. I mean, it's not that I don't understand: I've seen the gooey look that moms get in their eyes when they see their newborns. I've been excited over babies, too. But it still seems selfish...Here's a mom, anxiously awaiting the arrival of her baby, buying clothes and painting a nursery and buying bottles and diapers and toys and absolutely doting over this little creature...I'm not saying that this is wrong. Just...I don't understand why someone would want to have their own baby when, for just one example, there's a starving baby in sub-Saharan Africa in a ramshackle orphanage, infected with the HIV that cut the lives of her parents short, that will never be loved like that little baby that was "tried" for unless she is taken into some merciful someone's home...

I don't know.

Like I said, I don't think that having your own children is wrong. Shall I repeat myself again? I know if anyone reads this, I'm going to be barked at in the comment section. But I'm just stating my opinion.

Why rear more spoiled, rich, Daddy's-little-girl Americans when on the same planet there are starving children that would give anything for the chance to just live in a mediocre home with a family that loves them and have a meal three times a day?

So...Yeah. That's been bugging me for years. And you're the first people to learn about it. Don't you feel special?

Hm...I believe a Video of the Week is in order...


Man, I love that song.

Anyways, I guess I'll go ahead and go. Love you all. ^_^
