Pokemon, Go!

Standard

Hate it or love it?

I grew up a Pokemon nerd, so I personally think it’s a great way to get out of the house and bond with new people or even your own family to be honest.

For those who think they’re above it, kind of sucks that you would put down someone else’s interests just because you don’t understand it or like it.

Let people live!

Now, if you hate it because of the actual game itself or because you don’t like the way it’s set up. That’s a different story.

 

 

 

No Worries, We Believe You

Standard

Have you ever met someone that craves so much attention, they are willing to rip worlds apart to do so? I’ve met plenty of people who are this way. They’re typically pathological liars, and there’s a lot of “crying wolf” going on.

These people actually believe that everyone around them is stupid, mostly because they really do believe all the crap that spews out of their mouths. Lie after lie after lie after lie. People like this will even lie about what they’ve had for lunch, just to have others watching think one way about them, when really they’re something else. They lie about their interest in politics to seem smarter. They use the people around them for their own benefit. They’ll love one, and then love another at the very same time, and then pretend like the harm was done to them. They tell others not to dwell on the past but sit there and cry about what has been done to them just to get a little bit of attention. They sleep around and drink, yet post on social media that whores are bad and drinking is a sin. They judge others, but fail to buy a mirror big enough for their ego. They bring their friends into their drama in hopes of receiving even the teensy bit of sympathy, in hopes their crazy ignorance and stupidity is supported…Which it normally is because boy are those tears real! They point fingers their whole life and do all of the things they say they will never do. Then accuse others of being horrible for doing the exact same things…Or not. They’re cowards, and will talk about you to others but won’t say it to your face. They’re only way of bonding with anyone is to talk trash about others because they’re too stupid to have real intellectual conversations. They’re envious of people who are happy and do whatever they can to dim that light.They block you on social media but make sure to watch you through other people’s profiles, emails and usernames.

Misery loves company.

They’re destined to be alone, still stuck in the teenage, close minded mentality. Spreading lies like wild fire, and then getting upset when they get burned. Too stupid to actually listen to anything anyone ever has to say, yet tries to make others feel stupid. You know those people who post pictures on social media with a super awesome, amazing, inspirational quote underneath? You sit there and think, “hmmm you do all of these things, people just don’t know about it”or “uhhh I’m pretty sure you’re a bully but okay!”.

These people you should rid your life of. They’re toxic. The type of people who will steal your friends, good name, and your husband. They’ll even comment on this and say this and that, only further proving my point.

I’d rather be honest and upfront and open about how I feel, than to have a permanent mask on because one day…The mask will get knocked off, and then what?

 

You’re A Person Too

Standard

As we all know, there has been a LOT going on in the United States in the past few months and in the past couple of weeks. Before any of you start going off about how “these things happen in other countries every second of every day”, please realize that I care about all of these events. I feel for all of the people who have suffered, in all countries. However, right now, I’m focusing on the events here. I refuse to feel guilty about caring for the people in my own country.

Officers dying, innocent black people dying, protesters, mass shootings, PEOPLE dying. People. There is a rage flooding this country that has been rumbling for far too long and it’s getting out of hand. This hate needs to just stop, when will it stop? It is not enough to not be racist. That is no longer effective, action needs to be taken. Change needs to happen. I stand for every race, every ethnicity, all cultures. I don’t, however, stand for violence or ignorance or hatred. I don’t stand for the dummies that say all lives matter, we friggin’ know that all lives matter, the fact that we even need to say that out loud is sad. The thing is, people preach that all lives matter, however, not ALL LIVES ARE BEING TREATED EQUALLY. Can’t anyone understand this? Black Lives Matter’s purpose is to show this country that black lives aren’t being treated justly, they’re not being treated like “all” lives matter. That is the issue at hand. Innocent members of the black community being murdered.Not just by police officers, mind you. Then we have the audacity to be upset when there is friction, protesters, and acts of violence reciprocated.

Imagine always having to walk on eggshells because you don’t know how someone is going to react to you. Not someone, but a somewholeentirecommunityofwhitepeople. Of course, there is bad and good in all communities. The man who shot all of those police officers completely threw all and any progress of peaceful protesters to the wind. Understand this. Understand that it was a peaceful protest that some idiot with a gun decided to take into his own hands. One step forward, four steps back. Blue lives matter too, but that does not dismiss the fact that they are a representation of each other and some of them decided to MURDER innocent individuals in the name of white privilege. If you think white privilege isn’t a “thing”, please go into any Wal Mart or Target and use the self check out….Do they hover? No? Do they check your receipt? No? Hmmm….Funny. That shit is real. The problem is we want life to be so FeeFee LaLa we can’t get our heads out of our asses long enough to take a good hard look. I have good friends who are officers, and they are goodhearted  officers who do right by their community and I am so happy to be able to say that. I have good friends of color and they are goodhearted people who do right by their community and I am so happy to be able to say that. I have good friends who are white and they are goodhearted people who do right by their community and I am so happy to be able to say that. This is a small percentage of a very, very big country.

It is frightening how far backwards this country has leaped, so far backwards. It’s scary. How am I to raise a child in this? How? Should I rely on the fact that we look white? Should I bank on that? I come from immigrants. I’m not talking the regular “oh my great great great great great greeeeeat grandparents came here from England” story most people like to recount. I’m talking my mother isn’t a citizen here, legal, but not a citizen. My father became a citizen in his thirties. My second language is English. We are minorities. So the fact that there are people out there who hate anyone not “from here” scares me. It’s sheer ignorance. We can’t even call this a civilized country anymore, it’s going to shit. We don’t have the right to say that we are civilized. Animals treat each other with more respect.

I want all of you who disagree, to say this with me…Slowly now, don’t hurt yourselves…

Actually, try that a few times.

I heard something the other day that was so true, I had to sit and think about it for a while. I had to let it sink in. “There isn’t more violence, there are just more cameras”. There isn’t more violence. There are just more cameras. People have been suffering for YEARS, undetected, unseen, unheard, out of mind. The black community is now taking a stand because enough is enough. This was bound to happen, people were bound to get fed up. It’s only going to get worse, much worse, before it ever gets better. What saddens me is that this is even still an issue. 2016…Forward thinkers….Innovators….Movers… Shakers…Yet, we still see all of this happening.

The land of the free?

Free, for who?
