“Tomorrow you’re all going to wake up in a brave new world, a world where the Constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones, created in a stem-cell research lab run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags. Where tax-and-spend Democrats take all your hard-earned money and use it to buy electric cars for National Public Radio, and teach evolution to illegal immigrants. Oh, and everybody’s high!”—Stephen Colbert
So this morning, I wake up and see yet another Rebecca Black joke posted on Facebook. Before, I begin this blog post I would like to clarify that in no way do I believe Rebecca is what one would call “talented”. She’s just another mediocre teen singer. Her voice reminds me of those in my middle school choir class: underdeveloped and mundane. And this reminder of my middle school days proves that she’s just a regular kid who dreams big. However, I do agree in complete earnestness, that she is not in anyway a capable singer.
I’m writing this to speak out against the cruel messages people post about her. Black is a 13 year old girl, practically a child, and yet these grown men and women (and especially teenagers) post the most idiotic and nasty things on the web. Frankly I say, “Where has humanity gone!” because fuck all the people on the internet who are so ignorant as to think that Black doesn’t read comments about her on the web. And it’s not just the ethics of whether or not Rebecca Black reads peoples stupid comments, it’s also about the stupidity of the situation itself. People! It’s just a fucking song! Get over it! It’s been at least a month since that songs first went viral and it still keeps getting views on youtube; yesterday it was at 113 million views.
I’ve seen/heard about comments like: “go cut your self”, “you should just go die”, and my personal favorite, “you have no life if you’re making shitty songs like this”. You know what I don’t understand? Why someone who watches bad music videos in their spare time would be so hypocritical. And poor Rebecca over there cries her eyes out. And although in public, she says she’s content that she has so many views from haters or not, that’s just bullshit. Do you really believe that a 13 year old girl, who receives nasty comments everyday would ever be OKAY with people telling her to kill herself? It’s literally like an extreme case of cyber bullying, and just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean that it’s okay. Just because you don’t know her personally, does NOT make it okay. And just because you think you’re better that her doesn’t make it okay either. People need to grow up and get over it. In all honesty, the more times you watch and talk about the video the more popular it gets. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it and move on. It’s a song, not a terrorist attack.
Procrastination is a word that is pretty much embraced in my mind. Not embraced in a conscious way, I suppose it’s more unconscious. When I say unconscious I mean, I have no control over it. It’s like this monster that can’t be tamed. Unfortunately, procrastination has teamed up with laziness and made my life a living hell. These “qualities” are shown through my grades, extracurricular activities, my work, cleaning, pretty much everything I do. Fortunately, I have somewhat of a leash on the monster and can plow through life with only tiny scratches. But it’s a big discouraging. As a matter of fact, I’m procrastinating right now. Back to the bullshit work of AP Bio…
If you don’t already periodically go to this website, you are seriously missing out. I go on everyday, this website is probably the best thing ever. It’s like common sense in one blog! Sometimes the tips can be quite inspirational and are beneficial to daily life :)
“Just remember, the same as a spectacular Vogue magazine, remember that no matter how close you follow the jumps: Continued on page whatever. No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice. None of this matters. We’re just warming up.”—Chuck Palahniuk (Author of Fight Club)
^ I REALLY WANT THIS DRESS. Unfortunately, it’s too expensive and I hate buying dresses online.
EVERY single time a go to the mall to “buy” a prom dress, I seem to come across the most mundane and ordinary dresses. Don’t get me wrong, I think each and every dress is beautiful inside and out. However, it just seems like designers use the same pattern, color, and design every time they make a new dress. I walk into a store and literally see stacks and carts of virtually the same dress just made by different designers. And when you think you have found that perfect unique dress you’ve been looking so hard for, the price tag starts to burn a whole in your wallet even before you buy the dress.
But, I suppose my dilemma is just the clichéd teenage angst and anticipation of prom. Anyway, all I can end with is that I can’t wait for Prom 2011 <3
Today is just another one of those lazy Wednesday’s where all you want to do is lie under the bedsheets and sleep. Unfortunately, I have tons of homework and sleeping is not a practical option. And while I am failing to finish my work, I decided to create a tumblr account. I had one previously, but forgot about and eventually deleted it. In my opinion, tumblr’s just going to be another waste of time (but perhaps more productive than facebook?). We’ll see where we go with it. I suppose it’s therapeutic to do a little blogging from time to time. Oh the joys of social networking sites.
