Please. Party hard, but, more importantly, stay safe.
Fuzzy and incredibly bright images dominate the landscape, my vision punctuated by brief periods of darkness. Muffled, indistinguishable shrieks fill the ear. Entire streets, buildings, and people, once clear, definite, and seemingly real, suddenly forgotten. Elation, glee, and peace of mind—all gone.
Fuck, it’s Christmas.
What was once blurry turns clear, and I suddenly find myself lying down, facing upward, seeing nothing but a white ceiling. Groggily, my eyes trace the long, angled, wooden support beams to the window. It couldn’t be a clearer day.
Another scream. My eyes quickly dart to the door. Startled, I realize that my cousins have arrived, and are eagerly awaiting to unwrap their gifts.
Why can’t I be as happy as them?
I stumbled out of bed, got dressed, and walked out to the living room to greet them. Hesitantly, I peered over to the gifts under the Christmas tree. I count: one, two, three..four gifts for me.
But, everyone on TV gets like 20 gifts and have so much fun! I’m not having any fun. I look over to my cousins, all eager… all perfectly happy. And to top that, my gifts were a bunch of clothes. How lame.
2010. What a year. You’ve been great to me, and have brought me more challenges, memories, and life lessons than I could ever imagine. I can safely say I came of age this year—evolving from this timid, quiet, geeky shy-boy to this strong, determined, and motivated individual who’ll let nothing stop him from reaching his goals.
You taught me what really mattered in my life. You taught me how to prioritize, how to balance immense pressures all at once, and how to bring out the best in others. You’ve taught me what it means to be a good friend, and to always be there for others. Most importantly though, you’ve taught me what it means to work for something, all the while staying humble about it. How to not give up, and to keep pressing on, despite what the odds may be telling you.
Now, here I am, a lowly high school graduate, all-of-a-sudden catapulted into one of the best universities in the world, with only one goal. A simple goal, really: live life to its fullest, and never give up.
Life has only just started, and I know shit’s about to get down. 2011, you better be ready for this.
i hate asian hype beasts and im ashamed for them all the time
Welcome, our next generation of cholas, except Asian.
Deyyum, low blow.
Just kidding, but still. These kinds of follow-the-hype crowds tend to breed lots ignorance in people who are a part of them. Not only that, but you get shitloads of people bagging on them just because they wear Nikes, a crew-neck, skinny jeans, fake glasses, and a baseball cap.
there IS such a thing as being too sexy for someone. Why? Because that person’s “physical attractiveness” (or sexual appeal) can become a powerful force of coercion, overriding the person’s strongest mental defenses.
A simple change of tone in her voice could make you change your mind in a heartbeat.
my perception of time is WAY slower when I’m really tired. I had to wake up and take my brother to his volunteering event off of 3 hours of sleep, and I was playing I Remember by Deadmau5. It felt like the tempo of the song went up a good 10-20 bpm, even though it was the exact same version that I normally listen to.
After swimming, I process time much much faster due to my elevated heart rate, and so when I’m listening to songs in the sauna, they feel a good 5-10 bpm slower.
I cannot stress how important this petition could potentially be. I’ll keep it short and worded simply, because I know most of us are lazy when it comes to long posts.
What is it, you say? A petition to support and uphold net neutrality, which is the concept of keeping the internet as free as it is right now, versus something similar to cable TV, where you only have access to certain services and you pay premiums for various channels. Think of websites as “tv channels” in this analogy.
Why is it important? Think of your first amendment rights. The internet is a powerful means of communication, expression, and of seeking knowledge, and having that taken away from us would be a huge setback to our rights and our abilities to organize as a people.
To keep things simple, lemme list some potential consequences:
No more free YouTube.
No more free Skype.
The internet looking more like a TV channel guide with a limited selection of choices, rather than the “browsing” concept it is today.
No more free porn (and don’t bullshit me. I know many of you guys watch porn, given the posts I’ve been seeing.)
Facebook would charge for its services.
Tumblr would charge for its services (oh noes!)
It only takes a few seconds. Protect your rights to browse and do whatever you want on the internet, sign the petition, and spread the word.
Oh, and click the title to go to the website to sign the petition if you’re having trouble. I know lots of us tend to have our slow moments, lol.
I’m still such a little kid on the inside. I’ll always be down for a nerf gun war, or a game of hide n’ seek, or a game of tag, or a game of ninja, or any of that kiddy stuff we all used to do in elementary.
Dear followers, I respect your rights to posting what you want, but what’s with the porn/sex temptation craze? I’m seeing girls getting their panties pulled down and hands reaching into pants, and a few times, straight up full-out porn. Not to mention CRAPLOADS of makeout pics.
Truust me, there’s absolutely no rush in getting some, despite what your hormones may say. You’re 14-17 years old, for Christ’s sake! Just chillax.
This is what I always tell myself: Savor the flavor till marriage.
Why? Because you’ll get some, and get it with the girl/guy that really counts.
I’m not calling any of you guys sluts or whores either—we all have those temptations—it’s perfectly normal. However, this is the behavior that can lead to gullibility (especially for you girls), where guys/girls can come in and take advantage of you because you want it so badly.
Because I'm too lazy to think of all that happened in 2010.
