I’m writing this down because I don’t know what else to do with it. I’m so full of pain that I’m not sure when/if it will end. I see her everywhere. I still feel her touch. I can’t bring myself to go into public because I’m so full of fear I’ll see her. This deep hurt I feel is unlike anything I’ve experienced and I’m overwhelmed. The depression is setting in, the anxiety and fear are controlling my life. I’m hurting, I pray to God to take this from me and it sill lingers. It’s just festering, like a slow bleed. I want to wake up and see she called. I want for her to tell me how much this hurts her. I want her to tell me she wants me back. All I want is her. I have to feel these things but I don’t want them anymore. Alone in my room I’m paralyzed, not having control of my thoughts all I can do is think about her. I try to sleep but it wakes me up, I see her face when I close my eyes. Everything reminds me of her. I’m writing this down because I can’t gather the courage to share this with anyone to their face. I don’t want her to see this but all I want to do is tell her how much I miss her, how I’d do anything to have her back. I’m doing my best but right now it doesn’t feel like enough, I need help. Someone who knows how I feel to tell me it will be alright. I’m clinging to any hope I can find right now to maintain sanity but it’s failing. All I want is to run but I can’t, all I want is to forget but I won’t. I don’t know what the plan is in all this or what the future holds, but the cuts aren’t too deep to heal. This is my truth and that’s all I have, I feel alone.

Western Kentucky University's Student Government Association passed a resolution that supports making campus more inclusive for transgender and gender-nonconforming students. 


The resolution encourages WKU to create gender-neutral housing options, facilities such as gender-neutral restrooms in all university buildings and to revise policies to be more inclusive to the transgender community.

So proud of my SGA right now. Our administration may be sucking lately with the various infringements upon its own students’ freedom of speech, but this is a huge step, especially for a Southern university! Here’s hoping that now the administration will actually do something about this resolution.

This is a Godless place. 


FYI: I’m also the author the blog inspirement, which is where I toss posts about politics, world news, environmental concerns, corporatism, corruption, police brutality, in/direct action and random personal asides. It was originally where I started on Tumblr, but realized quite quickly that science communication was where I wanted to navigate my passion. Feel free to drop by once and a while, or check the archive, but I share extremely sporadically so don’t expect even a percentage of posts in relation to the frequency I post on sagansense.

The blog’s headline "out of mind" was inspired my distant brother from Louisville, KY - Joe, who’s been a great friend and supporter and has a blog - hooliganguru - of the opposite phrase, "out of sight", which was inspired by the song ‘Adolescents' by Incubus.

I’m also a supporter and contributor to the blog (link above) atheismforthewin. My interest in accepting the invite to be an official contributor and moderator is due to the labels attached to the word “atheist” and the warped perception of “atheists” in general. As someone who doesn’t label himself an “atheist” as I’ve stated many times, I’m humbled and appreciative to contribute at all to such a blog where I can share an original and hopefully fresh perspective via my own insights and experience. S/O to Robin from AFTW.

P.S., I’d love to make sagansense my primary blog but Tumblr won’t let me do that……

WikiLeaks comment on U.S. election:
Wed Nov 7 06:22:37 UTC 2012

Obama promised a more open government. But instead his administration has built a state within a state, placing nearly five million Americans under the national security clearance system, replete with secret laws, secret budgets, secret bailouts, secret killings, secret mass spying, and secret detention without charge.

Four more years in the same direction cannot be tolerated.

The Obama administration continues to conduct a “whole of government” investigation of “unprecedented scale and nature” into WikiLeaks and its people. It has fuelled the extrajudicial banking blockade against the WikiLeaks and has held an alleged WikiLeaks source, Bradley Manning, for 899 days without trial, in conditions that the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture, Juan Mendez, formally found amounted to torture.

Mr Assange has been formally found to be a political refugee over the Obama administration’s behavior, U.S. ambassadors publicly warned countries such as Switzerland not to offer him asylum.

The Obama-Biden campaign brags of having prosecuted twice as many national security whistleblowers as “all previous administrations combined”. This must change.

Politicians always say your decision, come election-time, will determine the future. But, as has been seen with the Obama administration, deciding on who gets into formal office is not a meaningful choice, because when you vote your party into government you also vote the government, including all its agencies and contractors, into your party.

Parties taking office are eliminated as the restraining voice of opposition. The last four years, like the next four years, will see the U.S. republican party as the ‘restraining’ voice of opposition.

But there is another option.

It was WikiLeaks’ revelations – not the actions of President Obama – that forced the U.S. administration out of the Iraq War. By exposing the killing of Iraqi children, WikiLeaks directly motivated the Iraqi government to strip the U.S. military of legal immunity, which in turn forced the U.S. withdrawal.

It was WikiLeaks’ revelations and pan-Arab activists, not the Obama administration, that helped to trigger the Arab Spring. While WikiLeaks was exposing dictators from Yemen to Cairo, Vice-President Joseph Biden was calling Hosni Mubarak a democrat, Hillary Clinton was calling his government “stable” and the U.S. administration was colluding with Yemeni dictator Saleh to bomb his own people.

And it was WikiLeaks’ revelations, not the White House, that led to the reform of the largest children’s hospital network in the United States.

Just over a month ago, on 28 September, the Pentagon again threatened WikiLeaks. Pentagon spokesman George Little demanded WikiLeaks destroy its publications, including the Iraq War logs which revealed the killings of more than 100,000 civilians. Little said: “continued possession by WikiLeaks of classified information belonging to the United States government represents a continuing violation of law”. The Pentagon also again “warned Mr Assange and WikiLeaks” against “soliciting” material from U.S. military whistleblowers.

Don’t ‘hope’. ACT.
