Offending Religious People?- Through Greetings

It’s pretty easy to offend religious people. No matter which religion, it can happen, intended or not.

Kay, I know that my stance on religion on the internet is a huge no-no, but this isn’t debating religion, this is just religious acts on the net. Like, today happens to be Christmas. And in a group chat, a bunch of people were wishing each other Merry Christmas, and I’m not sure how, but I learned of a something that apparently offends some people religiously. And I never knew of this today, and boy, does it make keeping peace between those of different religions tough =/

See, some people don’t like, and some get highly offended if you wish them of a religious holiday and you yourself don’t believe or practice or celebrate that particular holiday. An I’m not sure why, but apparently some people just don’t like it. If anyone does know (cuz they feel that way themselves) or has any guesses and theories as to why some people don’t like it, pleaase share it in a comment or something. I’d like to know or at least try to understand why it’s offending. I mean, if someone’s making fun of your religion or ideologies or just calling it darn right ‘wrong’ (haha, right wrong…) then it’s pretty obvious why you’d be offended. But, I don’t really get why, for example, a Christian would get mad at me for wishing them a Merry Christmas even though I’m not a Christian myself, and I don’t celebrate it either. I’m telling you to enjoy your holiday, whatever it may be. Just cuz I don’t believe in it, or celebrate it, or share your religion doesn’t make it wrong to try and tell or convey to you that I still want you to enjoy whichever holiday it is. Maybe they think that I’m mocking them? I’m not sure why, but that’s what I learnt today about wishing Merry Christmas when not a Christian. It can be dangerous =|

Anyhoo, lesson learnt? Be muuuch more cautious of wishing holiday greetings and wishes now. Apparently it’s become easier to offend people now. Just what the world needed. More confusions to cause misunderstandings =3=

Mm, I think my internet’s working now! Oh boy, it’s anime time now =D

Ciao for now!

ps.
People should just be chill with saying Happy Holidays =Y Although whenever I do, people just stare at me with a stare that clearly says ‘Why don’t you just be more specific and say a certain holidays name?’, usually puzzled at why I bothered saying something vague and different like Happy Holidays. Bleh, people make up yo minds.

 

A lil’ Story about a Charles and a Miss C

So I finished Paper Towns by John Green yesterday. But thats not what thats about. thats where this BEGAN. So here we go, and only wait to see where we shall end up. Let the way my brain works fascinate and baffle you now.

So Paper Towns. Johh Green. Discussing with Shallot. But then, we start discussing book collaborations, like WIll Grayson, WIll Grayson. Where, according to ayesha, the authos collaborated in a mind-boggingly brilliant way. They both name their characters Will Grayson. Thats all with the collaboration. They then just move on and write their own stories, of two different characters, two different entities, two different minds and bodies. They just share the same name. and then the two meet.

and up til that meeting, they dont show each other their work. Their writing, their stories of their WIll Grayson so far. And so that’s what we are doing. Ayesha and I are writing a small or short story (haha, lets just SEE how short itll be with me writing half of it =P) and were collaborating like that. with just a name to know. but we did collaborate a bit more, so the stories can mesh more, and since we arent proffesional authors like the authors of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, we decided to share some information about the characters to each other. Like how one shall be a girl, the other a dude. Im writing in the point of view of the dude, obviously. and ayeshas doing the chick. and so then we’ve got the shared name, as well as the shared age (17, junior in high school.) Ah, but the name. We decided on Taylor and then i rapidfire last names (DeLucas and Rosenfield were shot down =( ) and i said Sharbatski, like Robin Sharbatski, from How I met Your Mother. Wohoo. so now weve got Taylor Sharbatski. and then i threw in one other common ground…they should have the same letter middle name, but we should give them different middle names. So we decided on the letter C. this will also make it possible for us to distinguish between our two characters. (ahem, besides the fact that they are both of different genders…)

SO my dudes named Taylor Charles Sharbatski. and hes going to be the funny main character with a serious and philosophical best friend. and hes going to have the annoying ability of being that american (gora, HAH.) boy that shall randomly and spontaneously ‘put on airs’ with the assistance of a fake british accent, wohoo!

(shallot was actually worried that i wouldnt be able to find a dude middle name that began with the letter C. I said into the phone, around 3 seconds after she said that ‘Charles’. and that is the end of that.)

So her characters Taylor C. Sharbatski, a little Miss C to me, since i dont yet know her middle name. and thats that.

Our characters will both be in the wonderful continent of the United States of America, and shall both be- i forgot. no, i SERIOUSLY forgot. .____. oh nuo.

oh wait, no i remember. this is the part where i explain how we non-proffesional writers shall be going about this collabortation. were doing a short story, remember, so its going to be 5 chapters each. with no limit as to how long each chapter can be, which works perfectly for the both of us. and then after we make it to the third chapter, we shall read each others works so that we can see the stories and life of the other Taylor C. Sharbatski. Then we shall collaborate and find a way to make the two meet some where in their lives. and then well take the story somewhere from there. yeah, well totally cross that bridge when we get there.

I suggested we have the two meet on a school trip and have them get the wrong keys to the other Taylors room. that could be fun. (haha, i can see Miss C walk in on the serious philosophical friend reading Moby Dick and just be like ‘da hell..?’ and i can TOTALLY see Charles turn around in a swivel chair, close a book he was supposedly reading (upsidedown), and say ‘ive been expecting you…’ only to have Miss C’s roomie walk in, whos a girl, duh. The look on his face when he sees a girl walk in will be hilarious. he could fall out of his chair and be like ‘thank the lord!’ in his head. Oh, if im narrating. and if we do that. la la la~)

So now i have to decide whether i want to type this out HERE or on my laptop, on MS word. thing is, i really hate MS word =/ but ill need a constant internet connection on this thing, so i  might not be able to do it as often, like when the nets down, or at school, or whatever. bleh. so lets just see.

But yeah. Writing a storyyyy, yeah!

Just a Small Pick-me-up (made me feel awesome)

see, i dont date. i have my reasons. (religious ones too. but the internet is evidently no place for religion so just ignore that anyone…) either way, when i was in a random discussion today with an awesome friend of mine, Kamil, we were being nerds on fb and discussing our amazing note taking skills. When i suggested we discuss something less nerdy, he drastically changed topics (as a joke, i guess) and asked me about how many guys ive dated. (he used another word, but i dont know what it means, but im pretty sure its nothing good. so that goes unsaid. duh.) Being nine-year old me, i was kinda at a loss at how to reply. treat it as a joke, get offended, just respond….especially since he used a verb ive never heard of before.

amyhoo, after questioning him about the unheard of unknown word, he says he meant date (and pats me on the head. grr. i obviously told him off for that.) So i just decide to set the record straight, and just said i dont date. And then he said and i quote ‘Yeah, i know. (which proves that he was joking) *respect*’ and i felt AWESOME and super good about myself. most people usually dont have that reaction, as im sure you can guess.

(he later said something about a one and a half i didnt really get it. i shall simply assume he was a stalker. wow, if anyone besides us two reads that, they will have absolutely NO IDEA what im talking about or how exactly did a number conclude to stalking. oh well. it basically shall be nothing new. i amaze, baffle and astound many, its just what i do.)

yeaaah, i REALLY need to get to sleep now. its 1.34 am for gods sake….

so ‘night =3

Ze OneYear Mark~

Sooo apparently i was notified by WordPress itself that today my blog/wall i talk to/journal for future me to read is one year old! and hence has reached Ze One Year Mark! ^_^ Huzzaah~!

Sooo i dont know what im supposed to be doing here…something about how great its been, how i love my (nonexistent-) readers, and love wordpress as a whole, i guess =3

im pretty satisfied with how much ive recorded here, and so glad i didnt give up on this blog, cuz at some point last year, after the summer break, i totally disappeared. im glad i picked up the ball again, otherwise i wouldve regretted it ^_^

my motto is to do what you wont regret, and never walk away from somthing if youre gonna regret it later. i hate regret. a most terrible emotion indeed =P

and and, i actually am surprised at how ive come across other blogs and people and ideas and perspectives and commplements by starting this blog..

(small shout out to mudkipsandrainbows.wordpress.com =) )

But seriously, i like my blog ^_^ and in honour of this anniversary and it being all summerifically wonderful im gonna change my theme to my initial/original artsy summery fun and colorful one =D

So to keeping this Internet Journal going, hope all keep reading =3 if i have any readers, that is (dont get ahead of yourself, wattson….)

To having fun, and bringing more, to recording the past and traveling to the future, to slaying Math the Dragon of Evil in my dreams, and to smiling and laughing whenever i read this craziness,

Blame the Internet: an Apology, Exams, and a Ban

First, an Apology. im SO SO SOOOO SORRYYYY. i havent exactly been updating this thing for a loooooong tiiime. im sowwy >.<

I have excuses, believe me, i do! its like the universe, life, and everything else (ie, 42) are trying their hardest to stop me…well, first the internet sucks. its biased and mean. a true typical hollywood bully =( and as ive complained about it multiple times previously to this post, i shant do it again. atleast not now. and two, the laptop broke down.  and i absolutely refuse to type on an ipad. it kills your wrists and then you cant draw! and my not being able to draw- weeelll, im not about to let it happen, now or ever!

So how am i typing this out? well, ive kind stoled my dads laptop and am trying it out now. its just IMPOSSIBLE to use for me. first, its waaay too big, and ive somehow alread managed to close this tab twice. and i hope there isnt a third time…

ignoring my constant rants that few of you have probably missed, who am i kidding, ive got no readers =( *sniff*, back to the main point!

i apologise now for my extreme lack of updates. although, i do have an alt. ive complied a documentation, a journal, if you will, of all the going ons of life and shit as i know it to put here once i have the time after my exams. yes, on paper. and as the concept of an actual tangible diary (NOT a diary. a journal.) may be hard/impossible for many people to grasp, its there. and i did write one. a journal. hee hee.

kaaay, so updates about that journal, laterrrrr. summer vacation, wohoo!

soo. EXAMS. due to which my parents have banned me from the internet, the ipad, the laptop, video games (all excluding that ONE pokemon game i just cant find…(platninum)), emails, fb, 9gag, and at some point, my phone. bleh. i myself have banned myself from reading new books so to satisfy my thirst for reading, im rereading old books of mine. like the charlie bone series. i found out NOW, my second time only reading the series, that i havent actually read the ENTIRE series. i mean, sure, i knew i skipped the first book, but i didnt know there was an EIGHTH one!! and now that im done with that, im reading alex rider. again. bleh =P

soooo ive got two weeks til my exams start…and then they end on the 30th of May. cant wait. til the 30th, not the 7th..er, yeaaah.

so up. the apology…oh and an apology in advance since i wont be back here til the 30th! sorryyyyy.

Whats there to look forward to when i do get back, HMMM?! well, im glad you asked!

stuff like my recent dream where i became bros with batman, and the very awkward moment (so awkward that when im next asked in truth or dare, and ive been dared to pick truth, ill have to answer with this) with my childhood bro, ishi, and the science fair fail of the 6th and 7th graders that i attended, the Farewell function/my graduating thing, the drama of the couples in my group of friends, and much much more. i also had a dream where goku and vegeta become knights in shinning armor and asist me in defeating the Bloors of Bloors Academy (from charlie bone. get my references, people, plz!?).

now that you know i have not been holding out on the craziness and insanity and randomness of my actual life, stay tuned!

[uuuuggggh. i just realized im gonna have SOOO muuuuuuch to typpppe ouuuut nooowww…bleeeeh. im laaaazyyyyy alreaddyy just thinking about it..]

Buh-Bye! And wish me luck/pray/whatever that i get GREAT grades =P

laterrrr, y’all!

That Typo Bus?

I found it 😀 so rejoiced right now. so i didnt have to rewrite it~~! yaaay

I saw one of the most peculiar things ever today.

Anyways, i was on my way back from my tution/cram school, and as i rounded the corner, i caught a glimpse of this bus. a school bus.

Now, this particular bus made me look twice at it. One thing, usually here, school buses are painted with the colors of that school, not a standard yellow. so this bus was all blue. not that big of a deal since loads of schools feel ‘professional’ by adding blue to their school colors. it was weird because it said the ‘*insert province here* Police’. 

Yes, it was a school bus with the word ‘Police’ on it. strange, huh? and i thought it mightve just been a typo, i mean, i have seen waaay worse typos, but still…

ironically, it was parked next to a school too. and right before i rounded that corner, i saw this scene where this one guy was talking to a cop (all dressed up in his uniform, and had a loaded (i think it was loaded..?) gun strapped to his back) angrily, animatedly, desperately explaining something while this little kid (boy) of about 9 or 10 was crying. it was sad =( poor kid

Anyways, now i have my eye open for that Typo Bus! lets see if i ever spot more of those around here!

lataaaaah~
