I’m at The Terminal, also Stop Clubbing Baby Seals maybe?

Hi again!

I’m at the terminal and we board in a little over 2 hours.

I just felt a need to get this off my chest.

I saw a post on twitter that was basically saying “the seal hunt is bad” and everyone in the replies is defending the seal hunt???

Maybe I’m the *sshole, but I see no logical defense?

Most of the defenses center around “well seal meat is Inuit culture”…

.

.

.

So??????????????????

I really wanted to put the “then perish” meme in the replies but I feel like I’d get dragged through the mud so I’m gonna talk about it on my own special platform. So hahaha if anyone wants to drag me through the mud you’ll have to give me page views first.

I hate when people defend unethical actions with a guise of culture.

Who cares about your culture if you’re using it to ruin the lives of other beings?

Female genital mutilation is wrong.

Slavery is wrong.

Bashing in the heads of seals is wrong.

Poaching rhinos is wrong.

This should not be a hot take!!!

I sometimes hate associating myself with liberals because we’re so scared of offending people that we excuse atrocities. I feel like is some of the twitter leftists were alive in 1943 they’d figure out a way to say the h*locaust is ok because it’s german culture or something.

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve seen half baked hot takes about how people in food deserts need McDonalds as a source of calories… Maybe we can try to put grocery stores in those areas? Maybe we could try to make healthy food more accessible? Maybe think before you spout nonsense?

If the suggestion that you don’t do evil things is offensive, maybe you’re a sh*tty person!

Yes, the anti seal hunt activism should have more nuance and we should try to give people better options to replace murdered babies but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to club a seal to death! Are you people stupid!?

Ugh, I need to unfollow these whiny dummies or else I’m gonna go into cardiac arrest.

So now is my time.

If you think the seal hunt is a good thing:

Oddly Specific GIFs

What’s up?

I don’t have much to say today but I’d like to introduce you all to one of my new favorite things.

So if you weren’t around for the early-mid 2000’s internet, you may have never heard of a thing called a blinkie.

Blinkies are gifs that pretty much just blink.

Like the signs on the outside of a gas station.

So I’ve recently really loved to save oddly specific blinkies and just… look at them I guess.

Here’s a few of my favorites:

Obviously I’m partial to opossum themed blinkies.

So that’s all I’ve got for you today…

Thanks for reading.

Writing Until I Need To Stop

I work today.

I worked about 9 hours yesterday and I planned to write a blog post during my break but I didn’t.

I’m getting a post out today no matter what it takes though.

I always put “blog before work” on my daily to-do list when I work and I really try my best to check that box off but that didn’t happen yesterday.

Today’s post will be pretty mundane.

I’m pretty tired today.

I’ve been having a really hard time sleeping for the past like 3 nights.

I had a really great idea at like 23:00 the other night and ended up typing for 4 hours and since then my sleep schedule is basically in tatters.

hm…

I really have nothing to say.

This is one of those days when I would normally look for something that upsets me on twitter and then I’d write an 800 word post about it in a standard commentary style but I have about 6 minutes until I need to start getting ready for work.

I’ve been really cold for the past few days.

I think it’ probably because the temperature outside has gone down a little but we haven’t changed the settings on our a/c yet. I don’t wanna sweat my mom out of the house though so I’m not gonna change the temperature. I’ll just wear some of my amazing fuzzy socks from dollar tree.

It was hot at work yesterday though. Even customers who were only in the store for like 10 minutes complained.

I of course was completely covered from head to toe so I was quite warm.

It didn’t help that my hair was down.

I don’t think I’m good at temperature regulation.

I’m very rarely comfortable as far as temperature goes.

Maybe there’s something wrong with me.

AAAAAA

I’ve gone a minute over the time I allotted myself to write so I’m gonna go now.

Thanks for reading!

If I’m Ever In A Coma

I read this story about a guy who was in a coma the other day. In the hospital room they kept the channel tuned to PBS kids. The thing is, the man had the full ability to hear. So he had to listen to hours upon hour of children’s programming. Of all the shows he had to listen to the one that grated on him the most was Barney. After coming out of the coma the man had an undying hatred of Barney because he had to endure so much of it.

I don’t know if the story is true, but it freaked me out.

So since I’m freaked out by the concept of being driven mad by a hospital TV in the event I’m ever in a coma, I have some rules for the TV just in case.

  • I would like at least one news broadcast played per day so that if I come out of my hypothetical coma I don’t have to catch up to the world.
  • If The Golden Girls is on, change the channel to that.
  • Try to play foreign language media for me as much as possible so I don’t forget my languages.
  • Please no cop dramas i.e NCIS or Law and Order. They freak me out while also boring me to death.
  • Try to play mainly sitcoms on the tv. I like Seinfeld, TGG, King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, Louie, Sex and the City, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (my guilty pleasure, don’t judge me) The Simpsons (earlier seasons), and The Nanny quite a bit. I however don’t like Friends, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory, or Cheers. Don’t play The Big Bang Theory for the love of god.
  • If Flavor of Love reruns come on, you have to play them for me. No excuses.

So that’s all that comes to mind when I think about what I’d like on the TV if I’m in a coma. Put a little reminder in your brain about this just in case.

Thank you for reading! ♡

A Review of 2 Drastically Different Songs

Hi!

I just got back from my daily outing. My mom went to the doctors so I came along.

I probably should have written my post earlier so I wouldn’t have to scramble now just like yesterday. It’s almost like I don’t learn from my mistakes.

I listened to that new Kanye West and Lil Pump song for the first time today…

It was better than I expected.

I thought it would be hot garbage with a Kanye feature but it was actually pretty interesting. I don’t love the repetitive nature of the beginning of Kanye’s part but it fits with the narrative of the song. I think I would’ve loved the song when I was 14 to be honest.

I also discovered a hidden gem in the rap industry last night…

“I Love Bugs” from Yo Gabba Gabba.

Hear me out.

Yes, it’s a Yo Gabba Gabba song,  but the backing track and overall tone of the song is something I’d expect from like Tyler the Creator or maybe even Brockhampton or J-Hope. It’s super good! It’s been stuck in my head all day and I’m honestly super happy that a show marketed to 4 year olds would introduce them to such well produced music!

so…

yeah.

I guess that’s my post for today.

P.S

I forgot to say happy birthday to RM yesterday on his birthday! How dare I!? Anyways, Happy Birthday RM, I know you’ll never read this but I appreciate all you do!

It’s College Application Time

hmmm…

It’s another day where I don’t know what to write.

It’s raining outside.

Oh, you know what?

I’m starting my application to college soon. The deadline for the spring semester is October 15th so I’m gonna fill it out early just to get ahead.

*warning, family members don’t get mad at the upcoming content please*

I’m honestly not enthused about the idea of college (surprising, I know), but I don’t wanna disappoint anyone so I might as well plunge myself into debt to avoid stigma.

Right?

I hope that when I’m in college, I have a big break early on so I can have a good excuse to leave because I have a strong suspicion that it will be pure torture for me.

I know that people say you attract what you expect and stuff but I can’t think of any things about college that I would find enjoyable.

Maybe I’ll force myself to finish college so I can be one of those *ssholes that holds their degree over other people’s heads and acts as though spending thousands of dollars to get a title makes you better than anyone else. I think I’ll do that, honestly. I don’t think I wanna be called a college dropout.

Most of my high school friends are in college and honestly looking at their twitters strikes fear into my heart. All they do is complain about the price of textbooks and talk about smoking various substances in cars.

I think I’ll just come and go for classes and nothing else.

I better be successful in life because I don’t wanna die in debt.

Maybe I’ll just use my time in college to get pretty. That’s what everyone else seems to do. They become good-looking and develop addictions.

Is that too mean?

hmm… what else…

I don’t know what I wanna major in.

I want to go into music but I don’t believe I’m talented enough to be successful in music while I also wanna study linguistics because that seems like the easy route but I don’t wanna be a person that gave up on their dreams. ugh.

It makes you feel like a failure when you have friends who not only know what they wanna major in but have entire career paths planned. I know a girl who wants to be a gynecologist! I just want attention!

haha, what if I was the valedictorian?

That would be so awful. There are people who dream of college and stuff and someone like me usurps them. It would never happen because I’m stupid, but that’s a funny thing to imagine. The smart kids would murder me.

At my high school graduation, the valedictorian mispronounced compilation. Honestly that’s proof that school is just about playing the game, so none of those superlatives matter. sorry valedictorians.

OK, at this point I’m just being mean so I’ll end this post here.

1st Day of September

This month I hope to post every day.

And guess what?

I already don’t know what to write.

I’ll write a short morning page for today and hopefully it’ll be interesting.

I don’t feel great. I think my pneumonia is coming back (or never went away). Other than that, I’m not awful.

I’ve been making great use of my travelers notebook lately which makes me happy because I was concerned that I may not use it often enough. But luckily it’s been of use to me. I really like my daily sentence notebook, I’ve found it useful in remembering how to use words in context. I try to focus on using “rare” words in my sentences because I really believe in the power of using complicated words when learning foreign languages.

Um…

I really don’t know what to write about.

Great content right?

I’ll try to post later today if I get a better idea.
