So I am currently drinking a venti sweetened black ice tea sitting on the computer waiting for my boyfriend to pick me up... soon to regret the decision of having to much sugar. I used to drink these all the time in the summer but ever since, well I don't know when, I just started drinking water 95% of the time. I can't handle this much sugar anymore, it's sickening. It's weird how sugar can be poison, in a sense, to the body. Oh well, leaving that note I had a great day! In Econ class we learned about how Wal-Mart is taking over the world, literally. It's gross. I grew up never shopping at Wal-Mart because my step dad works in a union and Wal-Mart is not a union so union people are anti non-union people? does that make sense? I hope. Anyways, in my understanding of it, it is that Wal-Mart takes over the little family run business' of quality and it makes a one-stop market for all your needs. It kind of makes people have a lazier mentality and makes things a lot easier without the effort. AND what I learned is lets say they are selling microwaves for 29.50...you think that is a really great price but when you go to the microwave section you already have the mind-set that everything is that low too...so you when you want to buy the higher quality microwave it might even be more than another store. It's all psychological.
