So I have one more day to go before the weekend and all I can think is, “Why isn’t it Friday yet?!”
I hate weekdays. I have no control over everything. I must cram myself in crowded trains and be touched by random people. I must work work work.
But I’d like to enjoy making money. Are there people who do that? Who have fun while getting cash and go, I’d do this for free, I love it so much? I already spend most of the day making up stories. It would be nice to be paid for that. It would be nice to have time to write, play music, study Japanese and learn all kinds of fascinating things.
Work is so time consuming. But one has no choice. You need $money$
If I have to argue with one more person about not hitting kids, I don’t know what I will do.
The thing is, kids were not angels back in the day when you could legally wail on your kids. 90% of parents already spank and kids still get into trouble. It’s probably less effective to hit kids and it can have side effects people don’t really think about.
Spanking is hitting. Even if it’s a swat on the behind. You can’t legally do this to adults without their consent, you can’t hit strangers on their behind, yet it’s OK to hit kids?
This will never be right to me. I’m sorry, but it won’t be. There has to be better ways to teach and guide children without pain.
But I’m so tired from working for hours.
Maybe I could rant about how EA games is extremely annoying and makes me feel very cross. Their games are full of irritating bugs! I hate that.
Grah. So tired. I must wake up at the butt crack of down. Mostly I want to rant and rave about all the things that go on in my brain. And there’s a lot of things. I will try tomorrow because I’ll have more energy then.
Who am I trying to kid? Work is long. The time moves so slowly.
It’s just, most of our society is Christian. Most of the politicians are Christian. In fact, you are looked down on if you are not Christian in American society. Heaven forbid you should be an atheist.
So why is it when you have a minority of people who want basic rights such as not being fired, some, not all, Christians cry out about their rights being threatened?
How are your rights as a majority in this country able to marry whoever you want and be married all over the USA threatened by gays getting marriage rights? It makes no sense.
The thing is, if there is a God, he’s going to judge so you don’t have to. If you have a problem with gay people, why pester them about it? Why make people’s lives harder than they have to be? Are you like this when it comes to other sins? Do you rally against divorced people getting married and adopting kids?
But the truth of the matter is, being gay is a sexual variation. It’s not evil. And there’s bigger issues we really should deal with instead. Like poverty and child abuse? Gay marriage isn’t a threat to families quite like abuse is.
And I am listening to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsUbmCoMP1Y and this fellow is totally against gay marriage. I really don’t understand why it is a huge deal.
There’s billions of people in the world and thousands of cultures. Yet folks love to rant about traditional values and how they are threatened.
I never know what this means. It’s yet another one of those confusing terms people love using that just make me think, what are you talking about?
Too much of what people say is empty, but they think it has meaning anyway. Traditional values is one of those things. Do you mean Chinese tradition? Japanese? French? The myriads of people in the salad bowl or melting pot of American culture? Or is this just some term to hold people down to a standard that probably doesn’t even exist how people think it does?
I feel like it exists to limit people into neat little boxes. Maybe a majority of people like these boxes. Maybe many of them like gender roles and knowing where they fit, and having rules and structure. This is ok. What is not OK is to push such things on all of society.
Go and get a book by them right now. I spent a lot of money to buy Titan directly off of John Varley’s website because it’s a cool book. It’s weird and imaginative which is just the sort of thing I love.
And Xenogenesis by Octavia Butler is just a brilliant series. it raises all kinds of fascinating issues. My favourite in the series is Imago. For all kinds of obvious reasons.
I need to write in my blog now, and I need to think of a way to get honestly rich so I can write, do art, play music and play pointless games all day long. I don’t want to be a criminal like in the movie Goodfellas or Most of these People are In the Sopranos. The whole point of that movie is being a criminal is very bad. Do not be a mafia person. Also I am not even Italian or male so no one is going to Make me.
Which is just as well. I don’t want to be whacked. I wish there was an easier way to make honest cash. Then I get money and spend too much of it on books, music and soft plushy toys.
