thoughts on suicide [Oct. 27th, 2010|11:40 pm]
The_Whole_Day_Through
Keep on livin' and don't give up, because someday, it will get better, even if the sky is stormy and you see no hint of sunshine peeking through. There's no such thing as perfection, but how you perceive the world is how you will live your life. You will find solutions if you seek, running away is no real escape. Live and you will find your solution, die and forever you will be trapped in a grey twilight zone, never knowing what could have been if you just stuck it out five minutes longer to see the sun finally rise.

how i'm feeling right now [Oct. 7th, 2010|10:39 pm]
The_Whole_Day_Through
Sometimes it's me against the world.
Lonely, cold, small, confused.
Sometimes, I just want you, baby.
Your swagger, your gentle smile
Then everything is alright, everything is okay for a while.
Then I realize you're not mine.
Just another dream that doesn't come true in my life.
Then nothing is alright anymore.

Then it's just me against the world.
With another invisible, but bitter smudge left behind by the trace of that dream.

Dreams are not meant to come true. Happiness isn't meant to last.
We are racing against the darkness, trying to reach our oasis before it consumes us.

Why I Hate Twilight [May. 4th, 2009|01:44 am]
The_Whole_Day_Through


Hokay. So I'm working through New Moon right now. Got through half of it before I decided I don't want to read this... crap anymore. I've never been a fan of Twilight, but I thought after the tweens and their moms all obsess over Edward Cullen and Bella maybe I should give more a try. And boy, was my disappointment not alleviated. Why is this series so popular??? I'm sure there are tons of writers out there with better writing style, better plot lines, better dialogues and frankly BETTER CHARACTERS. The "Bella/ Edward" love made no sense since the beginning. Okay, there are quite a number of reasons, but I'm gonna name down the main reasons that I'm not bitten and struck by this story:

1) Bella is a sourpuss! She's a downer at every turn, with very little regard or respect for herself. It's downright painful to watch her dialogue with others at times. She just complains and FUCKING COMPLAINS, I'm surprised that anyone could stomach her or actually fall so desperately in love with her that they'd never look at another girl again. Bella puts herself in a lot of risks not because she's brave, but because she thought she's worthless and she's worth getting hurt over anyone else. How can someone else respect you when you deem yourself so worthless?!

2) She can't stand to be alone.  Because there are too much pain, she can't survive. And when another boy that loved her tried to approach her, she pushed away his love; then turned around and tried to lead him on when she thought he was gonna leave her because SHE CAN'T STAND TO BE ALONE. From what I gathered, she never learned to be alone or her own person throughout this whole series; in the end she just had Edward's baby and got turned into a vampire by him and stayed by his side forever? You learn to grow up when you learn to be alone. You learn how to have amazing relationships because you learn to be your own person. But no, Bella didn't have to! She had to stick to a man (or two) all the time for self-confidence and guess what, voila! She found her happily ever after!

Okay I guess my main problems were with the way the author portrayed the heroine of the story. With her being the centre of everything, it's very painful to read as she never seem to really grow up and give a feeling of power and sensibility to the readers reading about her. I could be wrong, I mean after all I haven't gone through the whole series. But after a book and a half I feel like I've had enough, the story is like that, composed of nonsensical love utterances and plotline worthy of a Hollywood script. I'm not taken by the story, I don't feel the chemistry between Edward and Bella at all, and to be honest I don't find a lot of humor in the story. When I was reading Harry Potter, I can often find pieces of humor and satire in it that make me LOL. I'm not saying a story has to make me LOL to be good, but it should be good that it offers witty thoughts and writings that reflect some part of the past or contemporary thoughts of our society today. You know, some substance behind the fantasy story line.

I won't deny the good things about the Twilight series, I can see why people would like it- I mean, after all the author is a woman with experiences of romance, she can manipulate people's emotions easily by keeping them entrapped in worlds of love and tender touches that, in her descriptions, send Bella's heart to a hot and cold frenzy that won't stop or keep her from breathing or something. I mean, it was great the first time; but after the 135th description of how Bella's heart can't stop beating irregularly when Edward touches her face I'm starting to get a little annoyed. And behind this twists of romance, as you call it, what's out there? What's the substance for the young girls (and boys?) reading it, besides dreaming of an Edward that's built upon a LIE? Which man in this world is like once they see this girl, no matter how plain or borderline ugly they are, one sniff of their perfume (or in this case blood) and the man is eternally lost?? That he'll never look at another woman again? Is there any man like this in this world out there? I believe in love, but I don't believe in this lie. Even if it's a fantasy, there should be some substance behind it. Some real thoughts that go into emotions that takes time to develop and take root. After all, what will the tweens think? They'll keep waiting for an Edward that doesn't exist in this world. 

Anyways, wow. That was a far longer Twilight rant that I have intended. If you've read through that, congrats lol! But I've wanted to get that off my chest for a while. When it comes down to it, I'm just not a fan of Twilight. I'd rather pick up a book of Anne Rice or J.K. Rowling any day. But despite everything, the one book and a half ride had been relatively fun. I'll probably forget by the next today. Guess I won't be dreaming of you tonight, Edward Cullen!

Good punch line today: 

We were walking on the street. Suddenly, Rachel perked up at the sight of a man that walked by her. She called after the man, stopping him in his track.
Rachel: Hey... don't I know you from somewhere?
The Man: Umm... probably. I'm the news anchor man. Steve Murphy."
Me: "Really? Okay then... I'll see you tonight at six! -pistol finger, wink-"


Oh god. I had to write that one down. XDD

oh man. i feel so bad. -.- i still didn't finish the damn short stories i've been writing. i almost feel emo enough to write a story about it, but then realizing that was my trouble in the first place saddened me evenmore. i seem to have trouble with stories lately ;_; it's unhealthy like a giant bag of greasy hair oil. i need an antidote for this. or a punching glove. or a giant chocolate bar. if i feel down from this, at least i can get hyper from the sugar again. and dance. when there's nothing else, there's at least my dance and a star in the sky
^____^ I crack myself up. -sighs-
man. it's almost the exams again. the teachers somehow decided that we need more rock n' rolling with projects. Woo. i'm not alone in getting bombarded with projects lately, am I? that is not sexy. -dum dum dum dum-
SEXY.
I just realized how nerdy this entry is.
oh well.
that's the way i like it.
so how's your life going right now dia if you're reading this? ^___^ yea i'm sorry i haven't contacted you lately. it's been crazy. i <3 you tho. lmao XD and keith never comes here. damn him. >___>
-loves-
i wish you all prosperity and sealed with a kiss.
