  1. I have been watching the Olympics, because I always do. But it just doesn’t feel the same. I mostly watch for figure-skating. I have been obsessed with it since I was a little girl. And my boyfriend loves the snowboarders. He snowboards, himself. I have watched a little of it with him, and it is really awesome. The athletes are so talented. And it is such a shame. I also actually recently read that one of the snowboarders (I believe from the US, but possibly a Canadian boarder) has a Pussy Riot-themed snowboard. Talk about controversy! I just can’t bring myself to completely boycott because I want to support the athletes who I admire. But I feel a general sadness inside, and watching the opening ceremony which was so full of Russian culture and history last night made me feel generally empty. I just can’t think of Russia now without thinking of the human rights violations. I feel horrible for all the people in Russia who are part of the LGBT community. I really hope they get better leadership after Putin.
