CONGRESS IS CONSIDERING A LAW THAT WOULD CENSOR THE WEB. While that might sound like a good thing...IT'S NOT! These proposed regulations could destroy businesses (like ebay, and Craigslist) and blogs (like mine and yours), social networks (like Facebook and Twitter), search engines (like Google), sites with valuable information (like Wikipedia -which is supporting the blackout today!

Seriously... if a child in your home were to sing a copyrighted song and you put it on your blog, according to these new regulations, you could be shut down or sued! These proposed regulations not only wouldn't keep piracy from happening - but it would destroy the internet as we know it! 

Please watch this video to understand the issue better - and then take action to help support the fight against this new legislation!

On the Tuesday 24th January 2012, the US Senate will vote on the internet censorship bill. Let's tell them VOTE NO!!

Sign the petition here:
Tell Congress: Don't Censor the Web

And if you want to go further and call your representative - you can start here!

"today's" post.

it says "today's" in quotes, because I already posted today, but that was my make-up for yesterday. :)

There are days when it's really hard to be friends with someone (and not kill them!). I've been there, I did that yesterday...and the entire week...okay, a couple months.

Anyways, moral of the story- don't just drop your friends. Talk to them about it. If that doesn't go well, maybe try taking a friendship break, and not talking for a period of time (a week, a few weeks, a month).

But if you have a good friend, don't let them go. You might really need them one day, and what would you do if they were gone then?

love, Brooke. <3

have you ever completely dropped a friend, then realized how much you really needed them?

Tomorrow's topic:: My Favorite Blogs. :)
*This maybe become a regular thing on my blogs!*

important stuff.

SO today I actually have something to say that's kind of important. Lol :-)

I wanna talk about depression.

This is really serious, and it's taken a lot of people's lives, mostly teenagers (OUR age!).
I know so many people who have battled depression, or still are.

It's a difficult thing to get through, and I know this personally. Me, some of my best friends, adults I'm very close to... It's horrible.

People wonder why people get depressed or anything, but they don't realize how much impact their words have. If you say something rude or hurtful to someone struggling with depression, that could be a huge thing in their head. They could obsess over one thing you say, when you don't even realize you said it.

Whether you realize it or not, if that person kills themself, you could be a reason for it and I know no one wants to live with that.

So please, be careful with what you say, because you NEVER know what that person is going through.

and if you are struggling wuith depression, just know that there's always someone out there to talk to, even me.
and check out this blog, because once we get it going, it really could help you (or at least we hope so!).
You Matter Too. Sidenote:: sorry for the deisgn and the craziness:: we're working on it!!

I love you all! <3

I may be helping her do it, but I'm not sure at this moment.

Link to the blog!
