Sunday Reading #2

I know I must come across as a hateful snob sometimes, but what are blogs for if not to vent opinions about the world around you? I like spouting off on politics, religion, and other sources of anger while trying to sound smart and sophisticated, but in doing so I may appear jaded or indifferent. If I have offended anyone I am sorry. I have more friends than I deserve, and they all have different beliefs and ideals, I realize that, and I would not try to change anyone nor do I expect people to agree with me. It is very cathartic for me to journal everything I am experiencing and reading. I try to express my strongest beliefs by blog, as to not annoy people outside of the internet. My life keeps getting better but I realize there are things bigger than that. All I want to do is share what I think is true and I hope my friends and family will keep reading, even if I am wrong.

Here are some good reads.
