In one week I leave Portland,and I won't be back for 4 months. I'll be in South Africa!! I fly to Johannesburg on January 29th,arrive the 30th & spend 5 days there. Then I fly to Cape Town and start my studies & homestays. We live with four different families, learn Xhosa & have an awesome time. I so incredibly excited!

I'm in the process of figuring out which blog site I want to use,I want something my family can read and subscribe to without getting an account on whatever site it is. Any suggestions?

I just found out that I got in to the South Africa program. I will be gone from next February-May. It's a social justice themed program. We do homestays and learn Xhosa and then spend the last month doing a research project on the issue of our choice.


i am so unbelievably excited!!!

i'm getting my 9th piercing on sunday,when max comes up to visit for my birthday.

I'm also craving another tattoo. I want two exclamation points (sort of like this: http://s3.amazonaws.com/shop.onrez/item-view-353265-1189809602 ) but instead of cats,two of these (http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/font/cambria_bold_italic/u0021.png). But I think I'll probably wait at least a month.

it's no good that I'm this addicted,it's an expensive and very permanent habit

Please take action on this! [Nov. 19th, 2007|03:40 pm]

Did you know that a federal law inadvertently caused prescription birth-control prices to soar at family-planning clinics, increasing the cost of birth control by as much as $30 per month on some college campuses?

What happened next? NARAL Pro-Choice America organizers on campus like Becky mobilized. Just days after she and others organized a massive day of action at the University of Montana in Missoula, the Student Government passed a resolution calling for legislative action.

And now Congress has answered the call by introducing a bipartisan solution to restore access to affordable birth control.

Will you join college students like Becky across the country and urge Congress to restore affordable birth control today before more women are affected by soaring prices?

Click here to ask your members of Congress to fix the birth-control pricing crisis by cosponsoring the Prevention Through Affordable Access Act.

The drastic increase in birth-control prices has affected not only university health centers but family-planning clinics around the country, making prescription contraception unaffordable for many working women.

Fixing this mistake is a no-brainer. This new bill won't cost taxpayers a single penny - but the cost of the mistake adds up every day.

The Prevention Through Affordable Access Act was introduced by representatives from both parties and on both sides of the choice issue who agree that access to affordable contraception is the most effective way to prevent unintended pregnancy.

Students across the country - from Montana to Wisconsin, Iowa to Texas - have been fighting for affordable birth control. Now it's our turn.





Please everyone,please click the link,it's a really easy thing to do but it will make a big impact in making sure that everyone can keep their bodies safe and healthy!
