I’m seriously depressed about the state of the world? I’m 15, I feel so weird, lol. help? (don’t read it all)?

Question by =D: I’m seriously depressed about the state of the world? I’m 15, I feel so weird, lol. help? (don’t read it all)?
Like I’m obsessed with economics and conspiracy theories to the point where I’ve almost “woken up” from my life and actually see the world for what it’s worth. It’s scary.

Like here is some stuff I realized:

-Terrorism- is a political tool used to keep control over the public. ( Do I really have to explain more)… It’s the perfect tool that could ever be used political. A fake enemy is used in all the books about a dystopian society.

-Global Warming- Is such a load of crap, the U.S. political system is so in bed with big oil and it’s just a revolving door of shooting down all green energy. And it’s just another way for them to tax us on Carbon.

– Monsanto- Is controling the world food supply and delibritly going to poison us all. It’s already happening people, it’s here, it’s not even a conspiricy… They literally own patents on living creatures like pigs, soybeans, ect.. Hell what is to say they can’t one day say they own humans?

– Media – Bugs the hell out of me becuase everytime me and my grandma start talking about politics she says “terrorism” and I literally crenge when I hear it becuase she’s so brainwashed just like everybody else, and the 4 major media companies are responsible. They own ALL the tv stations you watch. Viacom, Warner, ect… it’s outragous.

– BuilderBurg – A group of around 125 people (globalist elite); a few members include… David Rockefeller, The Queen of England, RothChilds, ect… They control all of the major world events and literally plan the future of humanity.
No sh/t! lol. It’s also real.

Like all this stuff accually does bug me, and it’s all out of my power, I can’t do a damn thing about bilderberg, or any of that other crap and yet it’s constantly on my mind…

I could go on and on about stuff that I’ve read about and reasurched for a few years, it’s like just totally wrecked my mind, but then agian it’s made me realize the world that we really live in.

I’m like out of school for panic attacks, and it’s like nobody understands stuff I talk about, I’m super smart and I accually have alot of friends, but this stuff just completely worries me to death, becuase it’s like I’ve known about stuff that was going to happen like the 150 dollar barrel of oil, and the morgage crisis and stuff BEFORE it even happens becuase I followed bilderberg and their plans… 0 . o.
And I’ve completely lost interest in becoming a ‘teacher, or ‘lawyer’, or ‘doctor’…

I’d rather be a hedge fund manager or a day trader or something, Becuase in reality that’s accually where all the money is.

I just am so obsessed with money and stuff it’s completely taken over my mind and everything… It’s completely pushed school out of my mind, and now I’m just obsessed with economics and stuff like this.
Instead of doing homework, I’d rather watch the stock market on CNBC…

Is there something wrong with me? Or what? I just don’t know.
I accually am 15 xD… That’s what I mean.

Swimwear Brand AQUA GREEN Hosts 4th Cleanup of 2012, Inspires Volunteers to Make Individual Changes

Swimwear Brand AQUA GREEN Hosts 4th Cleanup of 2012, Inspires Volunteers to Make Individual Changes

Easton, PA (PRWEB) May 31, 2012

AQUA GREEN, the makers of ECO SWIM swimwear, hosted their 4th cleanup of the 2012 season on the banks of the Delaware River in Easton, Pennsylvania on Saturday, May 26. A group of 70 volunteers comprised of AQUA GREEN employees and their families removed 1,222 pounds of waterway trash in an afternoon.

The swimwear brand, which sells sexy and sustainable swimwear made from recycled plastic bottles and plastic fishing nets, also held cleanups in Myrtle Beach, SC on April 21 with retailer Belk Department Stores, in Seattle on May, 19 with partner Nordstrom, and in Walker, Minnesota, on May 25 with retailer Lundrigans Clothing. So far, AQUA GREEN and its army of almost 250 volunteers have removed 2,000 pounds of waterway trash.

In addition to the total poundage, AQUA GREEN’s geographical reach in just a short time is astounding. “Our cleanups span several states: South Carolina, Minnesota, Washington, New Jersey, and soon Florida and Arkansas,” says Alex Waldman of AQUA GREEN.

“Our stylish suits aren’t just a worn during a day at the beach, they’re part of a family boating trip on the lake or tubing excursion down a winding river. That’s why we’ve decided to clean up rivers, bays, lakes, and beaches around country,” says Waldman.

What separates AQUA GREEN from other brands isn’t just their product, it’s the company ethos and company-wide dedication to making the world a better place for future generations. Giving back to the community is a core part of what it means to be AQUA GREEN, and the issue that AQUA GREEN has championed is waterway pollution.

Ocean plastic pollution will come to be one of the defining problems of our time. Indeed, with over 14 billion pounds of trash entering the oceans every year, it has already reached the massive scale of other more widely known challenges like climate change and deforestation.

And yet, great change begins with the smallest of actions. No matter how small a step, a step in the right direction is still a powerful step. And not only do AQUA GREEN cleanups give volunteers the opportunity to take the vital first step of cleaning up their communities, that small step has a lasting effect on volunteers.

“After I went to a cleanup, I began to recycle more conscientiously at home,” says Alex Waldman of Aqua Green. “I can only begin to imagine the cumulative effect of some 500 volunteers coming to a cleanup, seeing all the trash, and then going home and changing their behavior for the better.”

AQUA GREEN hopes more businesses will follow its lead. For the family-owned and operated business, a single water bottle that gets a second life as a swimsuit is more than a recycled bottle. It’s the stone that sends ripples throughout the entire apparel industry and encourages more businesses to share in the passion of reducing the carbon footprint in the sand.

“Our cleanups are a chance for our retail partners and associates to make a change,” says Waldman. “By contributing in their community, participants feel better about themselves and attract positive energy. It’s the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like, after all.”

AQUA GREEN looks forward to hosting eight more cleanups, including one in Tampa, FL on June 9 and one in Little Rock, AK on June 23, both with retail partner Dillard’s Department Stores. During the 2012 season, AQUA GREEN will host a total of 12 cleanups.

ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN is the world’s leading sustainable swimwear brand, making suits from recycled materials. ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN is based in Easton, PA and its swimsuits can be purchased at specialty and department stores as well as on select websites.
