|Correction Yaz made 8 posters today....She would, best Co-Organizer EVER!|
Tonight I went to my first Occupy San Jose meeting. It was different to say the least. The occupiers do this thing called general consensus. What they do is propose something and the whole group has to agree, the way they show that they agree is they do jazz hands. When I proposed Occupy Kaiser they all did Jazz hands at first and then one annoying guy starts asking a bunch of questions and in the end only half of the group did jazz hands, the rest did sad jazz hands lol. The good news is some may still join my movement as individuals which is cool.
At the meeting I felt like Elle Woods at Harvard. I was definitely out of place. Earlier in the day, I spoke with my friend at KTVU, he was collecting information about my occupation, he asked what I was going to do. Occupy Kaiser DUH, but his question really got me thinking, how did I get here? I normally Occupy the parties or Vegas, what is my dumb ass doing occupyng Kaiser?
Surprisingly my friend Yasmine has gotten really into the occupation, I can safely say she's obsessed! Every 5 minutes she's texting me another idea and today she single handedly made 6 posters. She Would. I love that she is so into it, it helps a great deal. I still have to do a lot for MB and I'm starting to get tired but I'm going to keep pushing and fighting because no one messes with MB and gets away with it. When people say, "YOUR" organizing Occupy Kaiser my response is, "What, like it's hard?" then I do a little dance ;)
