Why do you want to work for Amicus?

 

Amicus serves as a platform where non-profits can efficiently decrease time searching for potential fundraisers and increase the results. It’s is a tool that takes away hours of hassle, so non-for-profits can focus more time building their campaign. To work for this company would mean I wouldn’t be restricted to helping one niche of philanthropy, but helping an entire sector of relief efforts.  It resonates well with me, because I could have the opportunity to not only help others, but also help myself. I can be involved with the community and learn about the issues that are negatively affecting people across the world. Where I can go to work, not just an employee, but as a global patron. Amicus is a place where I can truly work for issues bigger than myself. Just the possibility of working here is exciting. This is even beside the already fun vibe that is created from the job application; being an effective foreshadow of the office environment.

Catchafire, Sparking Social Good.

Very cheesy, but I like this one: Catchafire, a matchmaking company that doesn’t leave you burnt.

Imagination Land

Imagination Land

What’s your ideas of imagination land?

Is it candy canes, gum drops, and lolly pops? Or is it something more intrinsic? One has to wonder how our ideas are shaped by popular culture.

Question what you believe, what you learn, and how you learned it.

A Long Overdue Post

“Why bother talking if nobody will listen” – Huey Freeman

I used to think that way. Preaching the diabolical nature of humanity, trying to show people to wake up and understand what’s going on around them. It seems that society is quick to shut down those with ‘exotic’ ideas. I have gone through so much in my life in the past few months, it’s somewhat mindboggling the extent that I have transformed. From Quantum spirituality, to the corruption of the Government, to the clairvoyance of humanity, to the most important: the knowledge of the meaning of life.

I know if I the past me could see the realm me, he would probably think I was insane, yet still listen to what I have to say. I wish I knew this sooner, regardless I am glad it’s come and it’s been an awakening for me in respect to the Earth and Universe at large.

Also, I kind of forgot I had this blog until today. Ha.

#9 Twelve Steps Towards Political Revelation, Walter Mosely

A big picture for a small book. It’s suitable… For reasons UKNOWN

The book is modeled after the pamphlets that were given out during the revolutionary times of the 1800’s with American revolutionists and what not; somewhat of a cry for allegiance regarding the necessity of a revolution from the chains that constrict the very being of today.

There were two major points to the pamphlet that I enjoyed. One: because of its nature as a book on internal realization, its detailed after the steps of rehabilitation from drug use. You have twelve steps to which the author outlines as his important points that one should understand/follow regarding the overall novel. This book is composed of two other books. With the rehabilitation steps, you also receive a brief bio of the author and travel through the issues he points out regarding current society by the use of history and revelation. Read more…

#8 Slapstick, Kurt Vonnegut

Good ole Vonnegut.

Another novel of a sci-fi fiction where  no crevice is without black humor. Slapstick is about two Neanderthal siblings – Wilbur (main character and protagonist) and Eliza Swain- who were born out of the wealthy womb of present society. Deemed as anomalies, we venture with Wilbur as we partake on a fascinating tale as he writes down memoirs as the President of the United States in his decaying refuge, The Empire State Building.

#7 Brave New World, Aldous Huxley

Cast in the shadows of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four, Huxley’s Brave New World is seen as another tale of a dystopian that is a fictional representation of where our current false idealism is tending to strive towards. Even after it’s print in 1932, it was a representation of what he sought the world could possibly become prior to WWII, and thus the influences of dictatorship and autocracy from Stalin, Mussolini, Churchill, Hitler, and Truman and how they conducted their business in a perplexed world shaded in colours of grim societal deprival- to which Orwell took into consideration in his novel.

Huxley said “The future dictatorship of my imaginary world was a good deal less brutal than the future dictatorship so brilliantly portrayed by Orwell.”

The time Brave New World was written, people were, somewhat, disliked the fact that a possible dystopia was being created in their own eyes. After WWI and climbing out of the Great Depression,I believed citizens were lead astray towards thinking that the arisal of another war was seldom as the world they lived in was pure ecstasy that sought no boundaries.
