my lunch minute

So even though I'm posting this at like 2:00 in the afternoon, this is the blog I wrote at lunch today, I will try and blog everyday while eating lunch.
So here goes. :)

Do you have any idea how much I absolutely hate the cafe? I hate it!!! It's horrible. The food is ok, I eat by myself, and it's hard to get somebody to help me navigate the mess that we fondly call the cafe. Sometimes it's embarrassing, but whatever.

I was watchin tv the other day and they were talking about the Haitian orphans. I love Haiti, I wanna be a missionary and work there someday among other things. It was really sad because the tv said that there are 400000 Hatian orphans and that was before the earthquake. Now there might be 100000 jor more orphans in Haiti bringing the total to past half a million. That's enormous! They especially talked about orphans with disabilities, specifically a blind girl. She wasn't being adopted like a lot of other kids in her orphanage because nobody wants her, people don't know what to do with a blind person I guess and I really don't blame them. It can be kind of confusing, what to do, if you don't know. She isn't going anywhere, this blind girl, she doesn't have a future in Haiti and her only chance for a good life is to go to America. The only way she can go to America is if somebody wants to adopt, or help, her. You know, I wish I could do something to help. Even though I am not qualified to help the Haitian orphans, I'm not a home builder, I don't have the connections necessary to help immediately, I can do something. Most people can do something. Think about it, we in America have food, water, medical care and more money than most Haitians will ever see in a life time. Just because of that, we have more resources available to us than most Haitians will ever have, and we can use them to help somehow. Now I just have to figure out how I can help. :)

On another note, I'm watching tornado chasing and it's quite interesting. I think tornadoes are fascinating and if I could I would go tornado chasing. That's just a random thought from me, or as my blog says, a piece of my mind.

Have a nice day, I might post later, but if I don't then see you later.
Blessings! :D
