~ Frustrating Topic ~

Racism & discrimination.
What do you think of it?
*.*.*.*.*

My thoughts..
Look at the human races beginning. We evolved from apes, lived in groups, and protected our own from other groups. So in fact, humans are a tribal people. Eventually with the advancement of technology, our groups combined to make countries, and we waged war to protect and/or expand our land and power. Up until the last few centuries, communication was quite limited and the majority of people were uneducated. So when people had limited exposure (or secondary exposure) to what they did not know, they often believed what they heard. So stereotypes spread. But did you know the past is the past? It's done, you can't change it. But the good thing is you can learn from it.

Racism is a big problem, but it is slowly improving. And I believe this change is happening because people are finally realizing that every human is human, we are all the same. Sure, you can be Australian, Korean, American, Japanese, etc. But that is only a label of the culture or country you grew up with. We may look different and have different beliefs, but we all have the same emotions, same abilities and we all bleed the same blood.

Some people may never understand this simple truth. But we as a whole should embrace it with respect and walk away from racism proving we are the bigger men and victors.

(((( To be continued ))))maybe??

~ Woahh ~

I'll tell you what.. the amount of work I've put into getting all my paperwork together to apply at a university IS A LOT. I don't know about Australia, but, by the time I get all my documents together tomorrow and mail it, I'm guessing it will be around 50 A4 pages. Not to mention I'm making 2 extra copies of all my documents, ($70 spent on colour + black & white copies) then I have to get them all signed by a JP. Only thing I'm worried about now is it may go over the 500gram limit. I've spent a solid week or more simply getting the documents ready. Anyway, everything will be ok. =)

~ New Beginnings ~

Long time no see. ^^;
.,.,.
I want to be proud of myself.
I want to be happy.
I want to be with Mickey.

Theres no happyness without sadness, right? Right.
Life isn't easy, but nothing worth having ever is.

I will go to Korea. I will succeed. I will be happy.

It all comes down to me, and I can do it.
Because I am strong like that.

If I try, I can probably do anything.
If I try my best, I CAN do anything.

Because I'm AWESOME like that. =)

Bad Trip (Chip Mix)

lol, another song title..

Hmmm saw Moniques blog, so i may as well copy her topic xD

Something made me jelous and worried, not so much the jelousy.. but i was very worried. Actually, so much in fact that i felt ill with worry & my sharehouse owner made a bed for me to lay on.. very kind =)After this, i felt bad because those thoughts don't help anyone, they just cause problems for me and anyone near my personal space. So i apoligised & explained why i felt that way. So, i hope Mickey understood my feelings at that time ^^;

On with the next topic..
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”

I think, in some ways i act like a child, but overall I am not a child anymore. To me, the difference between adult & child is the way ones thoughts & sometimes actions, pan out during a situation (although i'm still pure & innocent). =P

Also, playing games doesn't make me a child. I play games for enjoyment just as i would Soccer, and to express myself.

Me a child no more, oks? xD

Though, my dad always says, 'Men do not mature untill they are 25'.
(probably the same reason you have to be 25 to hire a car) ^^;

Compare One Piece to ABC afternoon cartoons..
If Anime & Manga are childish.. then so is Days of Our Lives! xD
One Piece is for real men xD

Tensai-teki

"Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this; when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort that I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought."

So, alot of famous people who are considered 'genius' are as such because they put sooo much time (times ten) into what they were doing. The fruit of labour and thought = genius.

~ yawn ~

I just yawned ^^; tired from excersize.

I have gained some motivation lately, i hope i dont lose it. I got it mainly from Takuya, who is the lead singer of the japanese band UVERworld. He is my favorite male japanese singer. Here is a little bit about him.

TAKUYA∞ (born Takuya Shimizu (清水琢也 Shimizu Takuya) is the lead vocalist, lyricist, programmer and the oldest member of Japanese rock band UVERworld. The infinity (∞) sign attached to Takuya's name has the meaning of infinite potential and that he strives to improve himself continually.

Takuya began to learn music when his father gave him a folk guitar. Since then he taught music to himself. Takuya, in his first year of junior high was inspired by his elder sibling which then drove him to create a band with Nobuto, and another of their Junior high friends - Hideki. Takuya started out as a guitarist. He loved music and started writing songs even with that little experience he had. Innocently, he thought that they were able to debut. However, later on he realised that he did not have that talent after all, however he did not stop.

After he finished junior high, he started living alone and did not go to high school. He started working and continued playing music. Eventually, he got into surfing and skateboarding and stopped playing music altogether. However, he realised that this didn't not fit his character and it lead him to the path of music again, with the help of people like Yutaka Ozaki (a popular J-Pop singer) who inspired him. He wrote this experience into a song, which we know as ‘LIFEsize’.

Takuya is a huge fan of Reigo5 and had mentioned him in several interviews. As far as we know, Reigo5 was previously the MC and vocalist of the still active band (after a long hiatus) - tick. Though not obvious, some fans have claimed that they can hear the similarities of tick's music and Takuya's. Reigo5 doesn't seem to be around anymore but Takuya still never fails to mention him in various interviews. In fact, Takuya met Reigo5's family in mid 2007.

Another personal favourite of Takuya's is Yutaka Ozaki. Ozaki was a famous Japanese musician who passed away in 1992. Takuya listed him as the person who greatly inspired him to return to the musical path after he momentarily stopped playing music. With Ozaki's influence, Takuya is determined to inspire others and maybe change lives in the way Ozaki did to him at that time.
