No plays from me in this, but I have sent one off for the next Proteus, so look forward to that!
None of you?!
I find it is to be very therapeutic in the sense that I am letting go of the past and moving on to the future. Unfortunately when you and your friends go to university, some bonds start to break. People drift away, people change, and you change. It’s sad, but it happens. And then you come back home and you expect nothing to have changed. But things have changed. It’s nobody’s fault – it’s just the way things are.
Most of the people I deleted from my friends list were people I have never/rarely spoken to, and don’t wish to speak to in the future either. Why is it we feel we have to accept friends requests from people we only know because they attend(ed) the same school as us? Or is it just me? It’s ridiculous – you don’t talk to them, you never will talk to them (unless you have to)…so why add them? So you can post pictures of their heads photoshopped onto your photos so you look like best friends? Is it because they’re popular? Or is it because you just feel bad to click that “Ignore” button? That was the case for me, though I don’t know why.
Yeah, that would never have happened. I was hardly popular at school…plus during my time as a pupil my school wasn’t overly dramatic like McKinley High (Glee. Sorry guys…), so even if I had been popular I doubt people would’ve reacted like that. I just give too many damns.
Anyway, it’s Spring, so it was time to clear away the people who aren’t a part of my life. It’s time to move forwards, not backwards. So goodbye to the popular people I never spoke to. Goodbye to the people I’ve drifted away from and no longer speak to. Goodbye to the people who hurt me and made me feel insignificant. Because the bitch is back, and there’s hell to pay! Well, not quite, but…nevermind.
Let me know if you’ve had a Facebook spring clean or plan to when you can be bothered.
This means that for five weeks (unless anything else steals my hours during the Easter hols) you’ll be hearing a lot more from me! How exciting is that?! Haha…
AIRRRPORRT FORRRR BIRRRRRRDS!
Unfortunately there are still a lot of people hating on gay marriage, and homosexuality as a whole, but I’ll touch on that briefly in a minute. First I’d like to go to a minor detail which I’m probably going to get hate from (whether it’s in the form of comments or just muttering angrily at the computer screen).
My only problem with a small minority of gay people is that they allow their sexual orientation to define them as a person. I am a student studying Aerospace Engineering and an aspiring writer; the fact that I am attracted to both guys and girls is not the sum of who I am. Unfortunately there are some people who are very touchy about being gay or bi, and forget that a lot of the time small comments are not meant to offend them. This is where I now use one of my favourite TV characters as an example: Luke Snyder from As The World Turns.
Luke is very touchy about being gay, and although Brian turned out to be a super closet case and therefore a little on the uncomfortable-about-the-gay-thing, Luke just…gah! As Noah – his boyfriend – says, he is a writer, an athlete, a big brother, etc, not just gay.
It’s not only Brian who gets the “Is it ’cause I’m gay?” kick in the face either. Although, yes, Luke does have to put up with homophobia a fair bit during the TV show, he is just too in your face gay. As much as I love him, I mentally facepalm every time he starts his little gay pride lecture. The best example of this is about 3:08 into the video below.
LUKE! You blackmailed the poor doctor into coming to operate on your boyfriend, and you think he dislikes you because you’re gay?!
And can I just say I love how Reid totally pwns Luke (pwn? I haven’t said that in years!) in this scene. See? You can be gay without being in everyone’s faces about it, without being ashamed about it. Thank you.
What inspired this little rant was mainly because of a beautifully satire article written when gay marriage was approved last month. The article is called OMG! Marriage is now worthless! And boy did it get some comments from ‘Say yay for the gays’ people. You should really check the article out, and its comments.
Personally I loved the article. It made me chuckle, showing with few words how ridiculous it is to think that gay marriage has devalued marriage as a whole. Sadly I don’t think many people read the whole thing before they started bitching about the writer of this article since it obviously didn’t click that she actually supports gay marriage.
