Topics I've Started
21 August 2012 - 01:28 AMAs I deprive myself of sleep, I can only tire myself by doing a small write-up for the sake of boredom and my thoughts racing.
Chivalry, Honor, Integrity, The words are pretty common, but it seems nowadays they go unnoticed. Yes, every once in awhile you will write up how great a person was treated by another individual, but it seems that for every good thing there are ten other terrible stories that follow afterwards. I think this may have a connection with my last rant about how people are not very confrontational. They like to use phrases like, "No offense" or "I don't mean to be rude" to soften what they need to say. And I admit that It's really fucking easy to be blunt over the internet then it is to do up close in person. We hide behind words without tone or inflection. There is no facial cues and tics that tell you that something is wrong. It's just cold language.
I have Difficulty standing up for myself and what I believe in because I was taught two conflicting messages. "Get along with everyone" and "Stand up for what you believe in." Both of these lesson are terrible to balance and find the equilibrium. Falling into the role of an aggressive jerk or a doormat for people to wipe dog shit all over you and thing nothing of it. When the people who are taken advantage of feel wronged they just bottle it up. From this I find that people will go onto the forums, write up a rant about the problem, and not do anything about it somteimes. They will just say what they want to do like, "Yea, I'm gunna fuck that kid up." or "Well, next time I'm going to do something about it." I doubt that people really follow up on what they say, and brush it off when they see something wrong. Afterwards the same person is thinking, "Uh... Next time, I'll nail him for it!"
What happened? Is it in relation of the whole, "Don't be a snitch!" attitude? Doesn't that just ruin it for ourselves? Don't we in the end punish the people who do right by letting those who do wrong pass off with just a slap on the wrist? Hoping that they do not commit the same offense because we were not strong enough to stand up and just say no?
I know life is rough, but we do ourselves a disservice when we start lowering our standards and making excuses because we are too afraid.
08 August 2012 - 01:56 PMI hate when people post up stupid shit that generally sounds like, "I don't care about this person, but I hate their face, what they do, and everything associated them. That's how much I don't care."
I'm not sure what they mean and it confuses me. It's like saying, "No offence, but you are an asshole." Uh... ok, was I suppose to disregard that last part or something? I shouldn't care, but I should? If you're going to say something, then say it. Stop dancing around the problem and grow a pair.
03 August 2012 - 05:47 PMAs I look downward in pain, my right toenail seems to be in a self destructive state. The phalanges... They seem to be working against me. As if by some cosmic force I am to be punished for wrongdoings of my youth through the very things I walk on.
Plotting their revenge for all the years of terrible toe Hygiene. At night they torture me with a sudden sting as if a needle had pricked the corner end. I spend nights writhing in pain... And that's just the beginning.
Dermal areas, peeling back and flaking away to be re-born like the cobra when it sheds it's skin. But, not into something magnificent or beautiful. No. Events that unfold turn into horrific displays of art.
Purple, Swollen, and Bleeding. At times, Every step I take, blood seems to pool around the cuticle and turn into a dark, black crust. The worst of it all? A miss-step that leads to a fate of agonizing pain. The toe stub...
Enjoy your days a time consuming pustule wrapped in agony. In the end, you are the bane of my existence. And I will rid you of this planet without sacrificing my stability.

Mad props to this guy.
04 July 2012 - 02:09 PMI never really liked FAFSA. If both your parents work, you kinda get pushed aside. Not only that, but working with their site has been terrible in the past.
But, schools need it I guess...
