I am currently sitting in my dad's office. It feels like a cell. However, that is not what I wanted to talk to you about. I want to talk to you, I am seriously doubting the amount of people that actually read this, about about how a perfect society would work. Yes, I think I have the secret to happiness? Yes. There are two routes - one a little more optimistic than the other.

Option Number 1) Accepting that other people have other opinions and moving on. This is basically saying: I believe in abortion, and you don't. I understand why you don't, I don't agree, I get you aren't going to change your opinion, can we just move on? If we treated everything like this, life would be so much easier. Don't think this is possible? John and Hank Green are the makers of the Vlogbrothers series, and they started things like Project For Awesome and Decrease World Suck Fund. John, is religious, and Hank isn't. They still get along. Amazing, right? Now you are saying, yeah, but they might just be faking it. I am not the most religious person in the world, but if I had to choose a label, it would probably be agnostic (believing that there is some kind of power/powers beyond our control, but we have no idea who/what it is), and some of my best friends are Christian and Hindu. This doesn't mean that religion is the only factor. I am also one of the few people who believe in abortion and gay rights at my school, so yeah - there isn't anarchy.

Option Number 2) Complete Apathy to all labels. That is all I have to say - I'll let you do the thinking.

Well, I am still trapped in his office, and I have been writing up a storm - it feels good. Anyway, this lady came by, while I was listening to the Piano Guys and writing a review. She looks in, we make eye contact, and she says to the person she is mentoring: "Some child is in his office." Some child? I explained that I was his daughter, and she just left. I will never be take seriously here - will I? The answer is no.

Well, I have escaped his office, and I am home! I just wanted to do a quick post on my computer before I head to sleep. I am really glad that y'all like my new movella, Motions. Kind comments, likes, and favorites, really motivate me! I don't really have a ton to say right now, so g'night!
