I think education is one of the most important and substantial things a person can have. You don’t have to be the most brilliant person on earth to be educated, and likewise, being the most brilliant person on earth doesn’t make you educated.
To be educated you have to see what’s going on around you, and want to learn about it. Sure, kids hate going to school, but for everyone there is at least one subject that makes them light up like a firework. People take education for granted. In most countries we’re just given it, and we often hate it. But there are people in places who don’t have the luxury of an education but want one so bad. And it’s unfair.
Education isn’t a burden or an annoyance, it’s a luxury. And it should be treated as such.
Being rushed. I will purposely slow myself down if someone is rushing me.
People who talk during movies and ask stupid questions, and make stupid suggestions on how to ‘improve’ the film. No, Jack and Rose could NOT have both fit on that door, they would have both died, and the film wouldn’t have been as moving. Shut up.
Slow people. HURRY UP I’M TRYING TO GET SOMEWHERE.
People who shove the fact that they’re not vegetarian in my face. Just as I made a decision to not eat meat, you made a decision TO eat meat. Both should be respected. Stop shoving your hamburger in my face, or I’ll throw my fist in yours. :D
The way women are portrayed in the media. NOBODY LOOKS LIKE THAT, so stop telling the girls who read\watch that they need to improve on themselves because they don’t. They’re beautiful and you suck.
I read a lot of books, and I enjoy almost every book I read, because there is always something you can get out of a book.
I was going to say Moby Dick for this one, then I thought about The Lovely Bones, then maybe one of the many Stephen King books I like…but instead I’m going with this one:
The Song of Kahunsha - Inosh Irani
I read this book years ago, and even thinking about it makes me tear up. A story told from the perspective of a young boy in a war-torn country, that is so beautiful, and so sad, that you’ll never want to put it down. It’s brilliant.
This is a hard one, because I feel strongly about a lot of things. If I care about someone, or something(place, event, subject, issue), then I really care about it. I don’t just feel impartial on things. If I care, then I really care.
So, here are a few things I feel very strongly about:
Depression. It’s not a subject to be taken lightly, or dismissed. If someone says they’re feeling a bit depressed, don’t push it aside as them asking for attention…because they probably are. If someone admits to you they think they’re depressed, they want help. Nobody wants to suffer alone. People get depressed for a reason, it may be something really big, or a bunch of little things affecting them in the wrong way at the wrong time. But people deserve to be given the benefit of the doubt. And I hate it when people just assume that anyone with depression is just being whiney, or moaning and complaining about all the good things they have going for them. Trust me, it’s so much more than that.
Religion. No, I’m not religious, and no I’m not an atheist either. People are allowed to have a relationship with God, people are allowed to have faith, they’re allowed to believe that there might be something more to this world, and they’re allowed to tell people about it. I am jealous of people who have faith in something, I admire them beyond all comprehension. I wish it were that easy for me to give my faith, but it’s not. And I think people who have faith in something, have generally happier lives than people who don’t. Now, that’s not me saying “oh atheists are lammmmeee” Because they’re not. Just as people are allowed to believe in God, people are allowed to NOT believe in God. But, you can have faith in something other than religion. You don’t have to be religious to have faith. And I think, people who have faith in something, be it God, humanity, music, film, art, or a grilled cheese with Jesus’ face on it, are just happier.
Trust. It’s a very big issue for me, if you break my trust, you break your relationship with me. It makes me sad when people abuse someones trust. It’s a gentle thing to be given away, and it’s not to be tossed around and played with all willy-nilly. If someone gives you their trust, place it in a box, put that box in another box, put that box in a safe, lock it with a code and a key, then swallow the key.
Everyone makes mistakes, so don’t judge me on mine.
Love me completely, and honestly.
ask “can I keep you?”.
Ladies and gentlemen, these are only 5 of the many things my boyfriend did to win me over. So, my heart isn’t available to be won, I already gave it away. I’m sorry if by some strange and bizarre reason this upsets you.
