I've been reading fanfiction (as usual) and I've always found it really funny how out of character each character can get. I mean, YEAH, have fun with your story, don't let a sleepy lobo stop you, but still, it can get pretty funny sometimes.
Also, I've suddenly gotten back in the urge to rp. Maybe I'll actually get back to my old rp blogs...if have time *~*
ugghh, I've got class in, like, 20 minutes.....I don't think a 15 minute nap is all that bad, eh?
I suppose it's no surprise to anyone that I decided to get in on the "NOT INTERWEBZ FOR 8 HOURS" bandwagon today.
Now, I've noticed a few things: 1. Dear god, I think I'm addicted to DA, because those 8 hours were booorrrriiinnnggggg. 2. Cartalk is an amazing show.
But, in all seriousness, it was an...interesting experience.
Now, of course, when I signed on to do some much needed textbook shopping for the new semester, I was hit with some head-tilting updates on facebook and DA. And when I say "head-tilting", I'm not talking about the messages being insulting or rude in my eyes: they made me think.
I think I can all sum it down to one facebook update on my page (and if you, dear OP who created this, ever sees this, I assure you, I'm not using this in a bad connotation at all)
a bit irritated about people being so vocal about SOPA, but really just for the reason that there have been much more serious things for people to be vocal about recently, and nobody even KNEW about it. 2012 Defense Act? That, and people are actually SURPRISED about this. Saw this coming years ago. I think its great that people are interested in their country's rights, but this is kind of old news and there are more serious things to your "freedom" that you aren't aware of. Maybe I should just shut up and be happy that people are finally paying attention? either way I'm pissed that I can't do 70% of internet things because of "black out" protests. dumb.
That honestly made me go "hmm" for a moment.
Because when these type of "protests" happen, there is usually a split between ideas. And honestly?
Those splits fascinate me
Oft' times, when something big happens (SOPA blackouts, the "Ocuppy-whatevers") and there are protests and backlash, the only thing I can do is sit down and watch what people say. Sometimes I get angry, because the "Hey, I support X-Y-Z, how dare you say something against what I support" bug rears it's ugly head, and I start to type out a nasty comment. But then, within a few seconds I stop myself. And I go
And that's where the thinking comes in. Did the blackouts do anything to help or hurt the current situation?
Well, I dunno. Now that I'm back at college, current news is the thing of the past for me. Most of my news is going to be surfing the web while I'm goofing off (for example NOW) and I think we all know about website news: you'll have to go to ten different news sites to get an <i>idea</i> of the actual story. So, in reality, anything new I hear about SOPA is probably going to come from DeviantART. I would like to <i>think</i> that it would send a message.
But, before I give MY opinion on the whole thing, I want to hear from YOU.
Even the best of friends will have fights, and I just had mine.
But, that's just the thing about growing up: if you've done wrong, you've got to say "I'm Sorry. I didn't realized that I did X-Z-and-Y, and I'm going to do what I can to make it right between us." Even when you think you've done nothing wrong: because no one is perfect. And honestly, what do you really want in life? To be right, or to be happy?
Sorry, but I'm choosing happy. And, hey, I still kind of feel like I'm just being picked on, but my Bff had points that I needed to correct. And I'm going to be damned if I let such an awesome friend go because of my own stupidity.
So, we may have already talked on facebook, but I think she needs to hear that I'm sorry, and that I'm going to make things right. And we can get everything out on the table and have no more friction between us.
Courage, Lobo, courage. If your other "daughter" (not really daughter, but I call her that X3) of 15 can say she's wrong and try to fix something, then so can you.
I think I knew this was going to happen when I first heard of the movie, but the mary sues have just been flooding out of the woodwork like mice in the past few weeks.
The Tintin fandom is pretty small, to be honest: barely anyone's read the original comics or seen the original show *hipster glasses* But since the new movie is going to be coming out, I expect it to get a lot bigger *~* And I really don't know how I feel about that *double the hipster glasses*
Yeah, this is a fandom journal, sorry guys ;; It just seems that all of my fandoms have dissolved into this constant stream of headaches that I don't really want to be part of. But I LOVE the characters, and I love the stories and I don't want to leave them, if that makes any sense :T
So, I'm still feeling kinda achy, so I'll keep it short and probably expand on this tomorrow. But I was going through a community that I follow and something blasted out at me like a bat out of hell. And before I go any further, THIS IS A LOBO RANT! I may say things on here that you might not agree with, and if I offend you, please let me know so I can apologize.
But I just wanted to say this:
If you are a: self-proclaimed ass self-proclaimed bitch
Person(s) that suffer paranoia depression or any other type of mental or physical disorder (aspergers, dyslexia, etc.)
PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. DO NOT USE THAT AS A CRUTCH.
YOU ARE YOUR OWN PERSON. NOT YOUR DISEASE/BELIEF/VIEW POINT/ETC. IF YOU FUCK UP, OFFEND SOMEONE, SAY SOMETHING HURTFUL OR INCORRECT AND THEN GET CALLED OUT IN IT: OWN UP TO IT LIKE AN ADULT, AND DON'T HIDE BEHIND SOMETHING LIKE A CHILD.
that being said, I understand that sometimes there are things that are beyond our control. But I'm not talking about, for example, someone with a language barrier that has a a difficult time speaking English. I'm talking about the instances where someone isn't thinking, says something purposefully mean or hurtful or bigoted, or other wise unacceptable and not appropriate for the situation/time/place/people, and then pulls the "I'm sorry but I have aspergers/depression/am an asshole and that totally excuses my bad behavior" card, if that makes any sense.
If you're old enough to be on the internet, then you need to be old enough to be accountable for your own actions. Think before you talk and think HARD.
TL;DR: IF YOU FUCK UP, THEN GROW SOME BALLS AND SAY YOU FUCKED UP AND APOLOGIZE. DON'T HIDE BEHIND SOMETHING TO GET YOU OUT OF TROUBLE.
Deleted my last few journals: had some stories attached to them that I really don't think I want to think about anymore.But what's new?
WHOOF...a lot, kids. Life's been crazy since my last journal post here. But it's getting easier to manage, and that makes my life so much easier (lol obviously). So I guess this'll just become my real journal. I'd use my DA page, but there are too many people attached to it, too many friends who could take offense or learn something I'm not to keen on them learning. So it'll be nice to have my own little space to vent, eh?
so, here, have a single from one of my new favorite groups; they're pretty good, let's see if we can push them to the top tier, eh? XD
