Hi guys, I’m currently in Gander, NL (where there’s wi-fi) and I’m putting my blog on a little hiatus until I get back! The posts that have been publishing recently are from forever ago (while I was in school - reason why the posts are so heated in an education-related sense), but I’ll keep them up because they’ve already been published. Ah, well.
So anyway, I’ll be back soon! :-) And in case you were wondering, I’m having the time of my life here. The east coast is the most beautiful place on earth. XOXO
noun, plural - big•ot•ries
- stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one’s own.
- the actions, beliefs, prejudices, etc., of a bigot.
An open mind is a virtuous mind. There is never only one way or one view to anything in life. It’s perfectly fine to hold a personal viewpoint - diversity is what makes opinions so insightful - but it’s when people push their ideologies on others that really grinds my gears. Shouldn’t it be enough to know, internally, what you believe? Does it really make sense to fight with others about it? If you’re not willing to listen to all sides, how can you even make an accurate and informed opinion? Just a thought.
BBC’s cover of LDR’s Video Games. Pretty freaking good.
everything you surround yourself with. If there are things or people in your life that are making you unhappy, let them go.
I relearn this every day.
Good song. However, same rules still apply.
Let’s face it: spelling and grammatical errors are everywhere, especially with the invention of the Internet (which has made writing and thought flow much more casual). Personally, I think proper spelling and grammar are very, very important. When I catch a mistake I’ve made - and I have made many - I want to kick myself.
Those who purposely point out others’ mistakes, asterisk and all, really bother me. Why point out flaws when you, yourself, aren’t perfect? It’s almost disgusts me in a sense because people really pride themselves of this and they are liberated when they point out others’ spelling and grammatical errors. I have seen so many people, on Tumblr, on Twitter, on FB (er, well, when I used to use FB), that partake in this.
I see errors all the time from those communicating with me and I would never point them out. What would I gain from doing so? As long as I know what is correct, that is good enough. By pointing out, it doesn’t make one seem more intelligent. It shows pettiness, pretentiousness, and speaks volumes about one’s character. Instead of “trolling the Internet”, don’t you have better things to do with your time? Just a thought.
I am in love with Steve Winwood’s voice.
Funny that this was featured in Napoleon Dynamite. Great song.
Lovely song. Thanks to my girl, Em, for showing me this.
