Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 9

I bought a backpack today which was productive if you ask me. I also got my haircut and went to the beach. So I guess you could it was pretty productive. I’m getting very antsy sitting around and waiting for the next three weeks to pass. Today is like everyone is snapchatting pictures (you can add me on snapchat: mrmilligan13) of their packed up stuff or packing in general and I still have three weeks. However, I should get cracking on my packing because I guess three weeks really isn’t that far, it just feels very far.

I’ve been trying to DIY t-shirts for a few days now and I’m very frustrated with the process. I just do this thing where envision something and it’s just not turning out quite the way I’m envisioning it. However, once I get it right there will hopefully be a blog post on it. It was the much needed crafting session I needed though.

So I went to the beach and I went to outlets and that was all good. I actually managed to find things that I was looking for. I always seem to have the problem when you can never find something when you’re looking for it. So, I would highly recommend the Gap Factory Outlet because I got a sweater for like $13 and it was this season, just 70% off for some reason. I also got a shirt for $2 and I liked a lot more stuff, I’m just trying not to spend a lot of money since I am going away.

I finally found a decent sized backpack. Well okay, I’ve known which one I’ve wanted for a while but I just bought it so that’s good. I’m getting more and more ready to go.

Let me just rant for a minute about Josh Duggar. I’m not going to lie I used to watch 19 Kids and Counting because I love being nosey and seeing people’s lives. However, I was disgusted when I found out that the eldest son had molested five people, including some of his sisters I was very disturbed, even though it happened when he was a teenager, you still have to know it’s wrong. Also, I think the way it was handled was probably wrong as well. However, I was even more disgusted by people defending him. What happens when you defend a sex offender is that you put the victims in this shadow of that their emotional trauma and everything they had to deal with is essentially not important, which is ridiculous if you ask me. Do not defend a sex offender, even if it happened when he was teenager. I am even more outraged that no one is defending him now. More people defended him where people were not engaging in consensual relations. More people defended him when he molested his sisters and other girls. Yet where are these people when he’s cheating on his wife? Watching porn? I don’t understand how you can defend someone who physically harmed someone then say nothing, maybe even be against him when he engaged in something consensual. Yes, he cheated on his wife, yes he watched porn, and yes both of those are sins, but why is the sin of molesting people being overlooked because he asked for forgiveness and apologized? He apologized this time too, are people just not accepting it? I just don’t understand. It is very upsetting to me. I just had to share. What do you think? Am I ridiculous. I mean, I don’t think he should be defended at all but I can’t get over what people defended him for and that they all now have nothing to say.

Okay sorry about that little rant there. I just am very frustrated. I don’t understand why he was ever defended in the first place, it’s very upsetting to me. I probably just should’ve done a whole blog post about that, but whatevsss.

Rant away in the comments!

    Okay, so I totally had this whole comment written when my computer restarted on its own. Anyway, I can’t understand either how it’s okay to defend someone for molesting someone but not okay for someone to be defending for watching porn or cheating on their spouse. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t comprehend cheating on your spouse or watching porn for any reason either, but I could see defending that over defending something as horrible as molestation, which is just wrong no matter how you look at it. Some people are just hypocritical and some things just don’t make sense.

    On a happy note, I’m glad that you found what you were looking for for your trip. I also hope that you’re planning on posting pictures when you come back, I’d love to see them and I’m sure your other readers would as well! I hope you have a great time and thanks for commenting on my blog!

      I’m so frustrated by the whole thing, apparently other people aren’t. It’s all wrong but no one should defend him at all period. I don’t know. Yes! There will be pictures while I’m there too!

    Hi! I finally have internet in my new apartment and can get on wordpress again! Yay! So anyways, I totally agree with you on the Josh Duggar thing. I just don’t understand on how people can defend child molestation and condemn pornography and cheating. Not that any of those activities are really okay. I also found it strange that the pornography was taken out of the original press release. Like really? After everything that’s come out he’s going to hide the porn? Porn is the least of his indiscretions. The whole situation is just awful.

    Hope your next three weeks before leaving pass by smoothly.
    Also-I went ahead and added you on snapchat, though I don’t use it often. My username is kamahi. I think. There might be a 95 at the end. (if you wish to have it that is)
