Thoughts on Unexpected Visitors

Woo! Glad it's the weekend. Well, after I get some stuff done. Like class, running, appointment, stuff. Yup.

The other day while trying to escape the reality that is homework, I purused the internet for videos. (I really didn't want to start that reading.) On my quest to escape the impending reading, I came across a 16 and Pregnant: Where Are They Now episode. Like I said, I really didn't want to start that reading.

I think shows like this might exist to let us know that our lives are actually not that bad, and we're not that stupid. Because many of these girls? They make terrible mistakes, and I'm not even talking about getting pregnant. No, they get back together with guys who abuse them, argue points that they're completely wrong about, and just don't use common sense. Now I know that the relationship thing might be a tad more psychological than that, but... oye.

Whenever I see things about this show, it makes me think about if I ever got pregnant at that time, or even now. As much as I hate to admit it, I would probably put my child up for adoption. I would feel devastated, yes, but I know I wouldn't be able to provide for a child. I can hardly provide for myself! Heck, I get a lot of help from my parents, and I wouldn't want to put this responsibility on them. It wouldn't be fair.

There's one person in my life that I would be most concerned about their opinion about adoption, and it's neither of my parents. It's actually my cousin, who is adopted herself. Would she think adoption is a good idea? A lot of those kids don't get homes right away, and the system can suck sometimes. She's from Korea, so I don't know how the system works in comparison to the U.S., but from what I've heard it's a bit scary.

Then again, thinking about all of this I'd never practice unprotected sex. Why even risk it? Just my personal thoughts.

Woke up at 4 today, couldn't fall back asleep. I'm going to crash tonight, aren't I? Yup.

If you got pregnant right now, would you be able to handle it? What would you do?

  1. Ack! Yes, since I'm married and a totally capable 27-year old, I think I'd be ok w/ an "oops" baby. My parents would sure love it! Although, as Kat and I have discussed, we are YEARS away from even THINKING about babies. I'm perfectly content in my adult-hood life right now.

    (and that made it sound like Kat was my partner. LOL. No, Jay and I have talked about it, too. No babies for a while.)
