MTV’s “Jersey Shore” gives young adults a bad name.

Image

Seriously, ya’ll, get it together!

But it’s not your fault alone.

ANYONE WHO WATCHES THESE DUMB SHOWS

IS JUST ADDING TO IT!

It makes me really frustrated that we think these kind of people are cool or glamorous when in actuality they are ignorant, fake, and just overall BADLY misguided.

I never intend to be unkind, but I knooooow I’m not the only one thinking this.

Sadly, I might be one of the few actually saying something bout’ it…

The children of Jersey Shore need to put on a different kind of jersey.

Figuratively AND literally.

this video is one of my faves of all time!

Okay, back to Jersey Shore

YOUNG ADULTS DON’T NEED TO ACT FOOLISH TO HAVE FUN!

To err is human;

to forgive, divine.

*I  like that first video A LOT (although the title is misleading).  Also, another BYU athlete was unfortunately involved with a recent infraction of the Honor Code.  Similar to Mr. Davies, this athlete is making amends, both spiritually and academically.  Read a smashing article about him here.

“Self-deprecating humor is a powerful tool in that it can help demonstrate our humanity and bring comic relief,

but still we artists need to take ourselves seriously enough to produce good art.”

~KathBath

(more to come on this idea)

Oh and by the way, this has not been the first time

that I’ve compared myself to John Mayer (duh!).

AND IT WON’T BE THE LAST!

Still waiting for that thunderbolt of blasphemy for the comparison.

Maybe it won’t be coming after all…

Thanks for help on this one TC.  TC Wilkinson.  TC Williams…

READERS:

1)  Do you use self-deprecating humor?  Why or why not?

2)  If you do use it, what are your experiences thus far?

3)  What are the appropriate limits to self-deprecating humor?

Hide yo kids, hide yo wife!

Screen shot 2013-08-14 at 9.29.57 AMThe video from which this still comes is meant to be funny (though personally I find it offensive), but it brings up a lot of serious issues.  Our world is fallen, and although there are so many beautiful reasons i have to be happy, no one can deny that there is A LOT of evil out there, particularly when it comes to how people treat children.  Penn State Scandal, Casey Anthony case, etc, it seems to be everywhere we look.  It can be almost enough to make us want to stay indoors forever and never want to interact with anyone again (let alone have our own children), but I believe there are resources available to help us cope with this problem.  The following LDS General Conference address is a landmark talk on some ways to not only help us prevent (child) abuse, but also heal from it.

Read here. 

Parents, in sensitive, appropriate ways,

teach your children some of the warning signs of abuse.

I also like this resource because it helps us identify the location of predators so that we can better keep our children safe.

Do you have any other practical ideas to help us (from a grassroots perspective) combat this problem?  Lemme know:  katherineannewilkinson@gmail.com

That weird writer neighbor

Image  Screen shot 2013-08-04 at 11.13.56 AM

You know how in “The Princess Diaries” Mia has that weird writer neighbor?  He has no social skills and he’s always really nervous and awkward and half the time he’s in his pajamas and probably won’t ever get married.  He’s so sure that he’s on the verge of greatness, but in actuality will never make any money.  Yep, that’s me.
