The second annual GiRLFest! starts this weekend. GiRLFeST is a multi-media festival that strives to educate people about violence towards women through art, music and words. It’s run by a friend of mine I went to high school with. After going to it last year, I was impressed enough that this time around I became a volunteer. GiRLFeST! needs guys to be involved too, because any progress in women’s rights requires cooperation from both sexes. I never realized how sexist the world is until I mention that I’m working with GiRLFeST!; even many of my friends. I get a lot of remarks like “You working with GiRLFeST? Macking on da chicks?” It’s kind of sad, actually. I’m a guy and I have to shout louder than the women to be heard. Anyway, GiRLFeST! is going to take over downtown Honolulu starting this Saturday. There’s a lot going on, but I’ll try my best to portray the feel of the festival.
Sorry I haven’t been posting, everyone. My ancient P3-600 finally decided to die. It happened exactly when I needed it most, but at least I got the satisfaction of throwing it out of my bedroom window. No, really. It’s been on my backyard lawn for a week now and I keep laughing at it.
Oh yeah, Lauren got me started playing World of Warcraft. Dammit, I tried so hard to be strong.
