Role Models in the Public Eye…

…who should be our TIME Magazine person of the year – Dolly Parton.

Dolly Parton celebrates 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry

Dolly Parton is the shit. There is no other way to say it.

Most recently, she donated $1,000,000 to research for the Moderna COVID vaccine. This alone qualifies her as a role model. Instead of spending it on something immature and stupid like oh I don’t know, space tourism. She doesn’t need any of that bullshit to prove she is cool. She just is!

I love her because she could not give two shits what people think about her. She wants plastic surgery -she has the right to have it and she looks great. She does what she wants and when she wants. She also seems incredibly kind and good hearted.

She founded the charity Imagination Library, which provides free books to preschoolers, in 1995. Just incase you need more examples of her philanthropy over the years check out this article.

Maybe most importantly, she supports everyone being who they are and who they were born to be. She basically just wants us all to be happy. How could that not qualify her a role model?

Second Vaccination Today…

…and I can’t help but be a tad nervous.

I am not afraid of needles and I do not think there is a tracking device in the vaccine (who comes up with this shit?). Also, we all already carry around at least one tracking device at all times, our phones. Shit, at this point put an iPad in me as long as I get movie theater popcorn with peanut M&m’s mixed in again. I miss the movies so much! I had a sore arm and slight fatigue with the first shot. So I don’t expect any crazy side effects. I am happy to weather the side effects to gain the benefits for me and those around me. If this is just a preview of COVID symptoms then COVID must have been real bad. I am sorry if you experienced COVID or had a loss due to COVID. I am so grateful for the opportunity to get vaccinated. I am grateful for my new place of employment that offered everything possible to encourage and allow the employees to be vaccinated. In 2 hours I will be fully vaccinated and in 2-3 weeks I will be reap the rewards. I will keep you all posted in how it goes. I am still hoping for super powers of some kind.

Does anyone else think it’s just so cool that Dolly Parton was a major funding source of the vaccine? She is freaking awesome. More about that in my next Role Models in the Public eye segment 😉
