Just give me some peace.
the power of anger is intoxicating. My God! how can the human body contain this?
I’ve got a cocktail of empowerment, rage, and deliverance. the energy is just screaming to get out, and I’ve got to find a way to release the tension.
because if I don’t, I just may find myself in a confrontation that could end very very badly.
the weekend can’t come soon enough. I have got to talk to someone about this
the constant expulsion of sputum from my lungs has left me with intense empathy for anyone that has to suffer any sort of long-term respiratory problem or disease.
it makes me sad inside. well I suppose that can be the upside to this thing - increased perspective as far as the sufferings of others go?
I just don’t know.
Yay, acute bronchitis. Thanks, London. Pretty sure I got it from that roommate too. Ugh…
I am so mad I can’t even type properly
my grandmother is so racist I can’t even articulate it
because she watches her FOX News every night
so she assumes that every Muslim out there is a violence-loving jerk out to kill us all
and when I CALMLY tried to explain that Islam is usually peaceful, she threw out all this crap about bombings and stuff
so I mentioned something like “would you consider the westboro baptist church true christianity? what makes you think that all Muslims out there stand by what extremists do? hasn’t it ever occurred to you that you’re stereotyping and overgeneralizing?”
so then she calls me a child with “limited education and experience” and told me to find her “proof of peaceful Muslims”
so I lost my crap and screamed at her that she’s blind
and now she’s ignoring me
well that’s absofreakinglutely fine with me.
So, I’m in London right now. I was leaving one of the stations in the Underground when a busker caught my eye. He was playing a keyboard and as I walked by, he started playing “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber. I started laughing and gave him a pound. He asked me where I was from.
me: America, actually. You’re quite good.
him: Oh yeah? Well, c’mere. *whispers in ear* American accents are quite sexy to us.
me: Haha, yeah? Well it’s the same for Americans when it comes to British accents to tell you the truth.
He said he could give me his mobile number if I liked (as he kissed my cheek in a very non-threatening manner), and I told him long-distance charges are a pain in the ass before walking off. He chuckled and told me to have a great evening.
Things I would have never expected to happen in London: that.
It did brighten my mood though. Told A about it and he found it hilarious.
…So yeah. There you go.
Talking to someone about circumcision and kids
- I'm thinking if I ever have a son, I won't circumcise him.
- yeah, but ... let's see what people say about kids and uncircumcised.. eh, anatomy.
- hmm apparently some children peel the foreskin back before it is ready, causing permanent damage. that's easily solved by telling him god will kill a puppy if he touches himself
- that's terrible! that would cause some serious issues if he hits the teenage years and wants to, you know...
- I was joking.
- we both know you weren't.
I fluctuate from feeling super-attached to my college to feeling like the place depresses me. It’s a weird thing to waver on - that said, I’m glad I came here because I have met some pretty cool life-changing people.
my roommate keeps coughing and sneezing.
I feel the need to strangle something.
hey, how’s it going? what have i missed?
i missed you guys too much and decided to stop by for a bit. what’s been going on? happy new years i guess. been busy. doin stuff. i wanna go back to school, etc.
miss you too! things are well… Just waiting to leave I suppose. hope things are well on your end!
Man, organizing my blog using a comprehensive tagging system is frustrating since I apparently like everything ever.
I’m sure I’ll figure it out eventually.
ANIME PLURAL = ANIME; MANGA PLURAL = MANGA
that is all.
Well I read the Sword Art Online light novel ch. 16.5 the author inserted after he (apparently) read a fan’s version of the supposed sex scene between Kirito and Asuna in episode ten, “Crimson Killing Intent” (i.e “Kurenai no Satsui” (紅の殺意)).
Why the hell did I do that.
Anyway, long story short it immensely disturbed me, because the author was pulling that stupid semi-non consensual crap some mangakas and authors (of any nationality) pull where the woman says “no~ no~” and resists, even though she really wants it.
Sending the wrong message, Kawahara-sensei. Although I know for a fact Kirito and Asuna have a relationship based on equality and mutual respect and acknowledgement, this little section kind of throws all that out the window.
The rest of the novel continues (as far as I can tell) in a way that neither confirms nor denies the section.
So I’m going to make that piece completely non-canon and treat it like the author made fan fiction for himself. Hell, I don’t care if Asuna and Kirito do have sex. In fact, I just think to myself that the explicit part of their relationship begins after he proposes, and they are living in the cabin together. Maybe before Yui, even.
And it’ll have none of that stupid “no~” crap that makes me feel vaguely that neither character was ready for it. In my head, it is completely mutual and understanding and not at all rushed. They didn’t fuck. They made love.
Merry Christmas Eve!
Happy Hanukkah & a joyous Kwanzaa as well!
