이야기를좀나눌까?

Long time, no anything-at-all ^3^)/

So here's a photo of me at the National Museum event last weekend! I met some really cool people (like Hotaru!!!!!!) and hung out with some of my favorite babus (like Julie!) Hoho!
Cosplay Nationalmuseet 2015
I wanna take this opportunity to thank the blog readers who came up and said hi to me :'D You guys are so fucking cute, I love it! Feel free to say hi anytime you see me out and about in CPH. While I probably react a little odd, I do truly appreciate that you wanna talk to me.. cause really, I'm not as cool as you probably have this odd idea about me being, lol. Not cool. Not cool at all, I'll have you know. After the event some of us went out to wish Mie well off to Japan and to apparently get really, really drunk lol. I don't really know if we did anything but dance and eat chicken burgers, but it was fun :'D ♡

Anyway, as an apology for my absence, I bring with me lots of food porn photos and a couple of snapshots from what I've been up to lately. I wish I had photos from JPopCon 2015, but all I can say is that I made Gopher of the Year AND met so many epic people, that I don't even know where to begin! T_T; You guys were so incredible to me and I appreciate it so much. I was actually pretty sick during the con, but despite that, I had such a good time, saw Yuegene Fay irl, saw the BEAUTIFUL Josh Hartt AND saw my two babus win a trip to China for CICAF. So proud, you guys! SO PROUD! (also apparently I 'saw' many things, haha.) Anyway, shout out to my lovely con-homodacchis!

To the foooooood we gooooo~

Snacks! Went to JEONGIE's house last weekend and we got way too drunk, lol. She'd lined up loads of delicious treats for us as per usual. :'D
Kevin (my fav. goth) and I also went to Jeongie's house for dinner and drinks after work one day! Such delish kimchi soup! *Q*
Mimi decided to chill in Jeongie's cardigan, lol. Keepin' it classy.

Speaking of Mimi, I found a photo of Mille and Lillemis each for y'all! I saw them in January when I was home for winter break. It was so good to see them - and I think they missed me too :'D
Lillemis is SO BIG! She's already a year and 6 months old! Time flies :')
Mille is a classy lady as always xD She was CRAZILY clingy while I was home. Silly sausage, hehe

While I was home the last time, my mom and I went to visit some people who used Calle for their female. She had a few pups and they wanted my mom and me to come and look at them. SO CUTE! Sadly Calle is really sick atm. (he's 9 years old already) and he's struggling with his spondylosis as well. Poor baby :( I'm kinda worried that I'll have to say goodbye when I go back for Easter on Wednesday. -sobs- Anyway! Look at these cuties!
There's a brown male and a black male. So cute! Especially the black one was feisty ; D

Speaking of cute, I've been so bad on Instagram following bunny-accounts and liking the SHIT out of bunny pics all over the place, lol. THEY SO CUTE! *__* 
HNNNNNG SO CUTE!! Look at that chubby face! ♡ 

I also got y'all a little picture spam of Saya. I know that some of you probably miss seeing her, so I bring with me a SHIT LOAD of cute-ass bunny pics, hehe! 
She was good to me while I was sick :')
Spring has arrived, as you can tell ; D
Making a fucking mess -__-"
Channelling her inner fangirl, lol. Kpop music videos were on, hehe! >: D

As a birthday/Christmas present to myself, I got a little treat! I love my NIXON 51-30 watch to death, but it stopped ticking and sending it in for a replacement-thing proved to be much more complicated than I had initially thought.. So I got this one!

It's a FOSSIL Nate! So gorgeous! Sadly the glass is apparently shite and got scratched pretty bad within the first week, meh. But I love it anyway! :') It's also a little easier to change settings on than the NIXON, because it doesn't have as many functions. Simplicity at its best! ^3^)/

Did I mention, I'm the best at puns? HEHEHE
The screen shot is from a convo with poopy-face-person, lol. We went for bubble tea last week and it was SO GOOD! I got so many bubble teas by now that I scored myself a free one the next time I go! Sweet~!
For those wondering, I always get the pomegranate green tea with tapioca!

Going home from uni. Dybbølsbro Station! The station near my job. Every morning I walk to uni from here. It's so nice and the morning air is so crisp! Helps me wake up a bit, hue hue.

Now... uhh, feel free to click out now, but I took a couple of selcas too. I'm not much of a selfie-person, because the word is gross and I don't like having my picture taken. I always end up looking super angry or super tired - there's no in-between. So yeah.. fmf (fuck my face? lol)
My hair is so long! Getting a side-trim on Sunday!

Met in early for class, I guess. There's coffee on my shirt's hood-strings, lol. I ain't no classy girl, haha! ; D


And now to something completely different!!!
ZAYN LEFT ONE DIRECTION WTFFFFFFFFFFuuuuckery! D':
I'm not pleased with this T_T;
*sobs bc Zayn is honestly the best singer*
(and he's just so great) T_T;

T______T;


Anyway...
-clears throat-



My next post will most likely be a post for LENSVILLAGE!

Got THESE beautiful day-lenses to review and they're so comfy! *__* ♡
(excuse my huge fucking face, lol.)
They're also PERFECT if you - like me - don't wear lenses often, but like to wear them for a long time, when you finally do. Yay, for Fairy1Day!

That's it, folks!
Thanks for reading (and for sticking around despite my lazy ass, lol)
MUCH LOVE, GUYS

HYPER RED → HYPER RAD

LENSVILLAGE.COM
FYNALE Hyper Red circle lenses

Ohohoho, all the puns. Yes! Hey guys!
Yeah yeah, it's been a while, I know, I know.
But I've been busy! I swear : D


But! This time around I bring with me an epic review of epic lenses. If you know me, you know that I fucking LOVE FYNALE lenses. They're comfy, they're affordable AND they look.. AWESOME. Always! Regardless of your eye color, they are vibrant and epic-looking, ok. However, they do have one weakness. Okay, maybe two.
1. When you put them on, they tend to stick to your fingers, because they're very thin and soft. This, however, helps make sure that they're comfortable and don't dry out your eyes as much as a regular soft lens might. 
2. They tend to drop a little bit and if you're in natural light (like I am in most of these photos), you can see a little bit of my natural eye color at the bottom of my eye. Clearly, had the weather not been as bright today, you wouldn't be able to tell. But because my pupils are contracted, you can see my green eye color underneath.
Anyway, let's get to some specs, yeah?
Brand: FYNALE
Line: Classic
Color: Hyper Red 0~500
Power: -5.0 till 0.0
Life span: 1 year
Diameter: 14.5 mm.
Base curve: 8.6mm.
Water content: 55%(!!!!)
Manufacturer: VASSEN

You can click here to PURCHASE through LensVillage
Free shipping on orders above $50 (sweet!!)

My verdict?
Comfort: ★★★
Enlargement: ☆☆★★
Price: ★★★★★
Color/pattern: ★★★★★

They're super comfortable (though not as comfortable as the Sincere 1Day lenses that I'll be reviewing soon, too). They're enlarging, but with their mere 14.5mm you can clearly go bigger if you're comfortable with that. The price is decent to me. $23 US is not bad for a pair of good lenses which - with the right care - can last you a long time. And obviously - I think the color is PERFECT, though it's not 'suuper' natural, so wearing it on a day-to-day basis probably isn't that appropriate. But I mean.. you do you. Do what you want, I ain't yo daddy. lol

Now to some photos of me looking stupid wearing them Ò__ó)/ So comfy, uuugh! 


and two w/flash, clearly lol
I may or may not be this pale irl >: D

I reckon they'd be great for an edgy ulzzang or maybe even a cosplayer - I can totally see these working for Rin Matsuoka, Mikoto Suoh or even Sebastian Michaelis. Generally anyone with a red eye that's meant to be "naturally red" (as if they exist, lol, but you catch my drift, yeah?)

Let me know if you get them! Tag me on Instagram (@dwaejieolgul) or something.. hell, tag @lensvillagedotcom if you get them! *__*

PEACE OUT
Thanks for reading
&
MUCH LOVE

Freedom of Speech

If you're somewhat up to date on news in Europe, you've probably heard of the "JE SUIS CHARLIE"-campaign, the shooting in Paris, extremist attacks and 'freedom of speech'. I see a lot of people on Facebook (and Twitter) raging about the shooting and how innocent people were killed and how muslims are crazy - but honestly, as sad and cynical as this sounds - it is no surprise to me that this was the outcome of those (ridiculously unnecessary) drawings. This whole "you dare draw our prophet, so I keel you!" is making me a little.. well it makes me feel kinda weird but mostly uncomfortable. But so does this whole "We provoked them and they reacted! They are threatening our freedom of speech (and other various rights)!"-victimization. Anyway, this is me ranting. Some of you may like it, some of you may not. C'est la vie. I'll get over it and so will you. I added gifs for laughs, so if you think my opinions are dumb, at least you can look (and laugh) at those.
Now... I'm not religious. My relationship with god throughout my life has been kind of how Harry Potter learns (in the third movie while almost dying with his god father) that life is in HIS fucking hands. He thinks he's seeing his father saving his and Sirius' lives, but he comes to realize that the one who needs to save him is himself. No miracle - it's all him and his magical fucking wand (I wish I had a wand). Which is great! God is great if you need him - I grew up, learned many lessons the hard way and decided that I didn't need God. That's that.

The whole ordeal with freedom of speech and why it was granted as a right is (at least to me), that humanity needed to allow itself to grow and evolve, utilizing all resources accessible. By allowing everyone to speak their mind and discuss their ideas, it became OKAY to question the corrupt-as-fuck government, it became okay to not believe in God (and talk about it), it became okay to post articles in the newspaper about people doing cruel shit and demanding for them to get punished for it and it was accepted for minorities to also speak for themselves (ideally). It was a right that we needed. We still need and should protect that right, but with technology evolving and societies changing, it appears that people have a really hard time managing and utilizing this right properly.

Suddenly you 'are allowed to' do dumb shit by simply justifying it with "It's a free country!" or you can write anonymously to people on the internet, calling them fat and ugly, telling them to kill themselves because they're worthless on this earth. As long as you have "freedom of speech" you can apparently say whatever the fuck you want without it having consequences for YOU. However, what you say (and what you do) ultimately has consequences for the people you are doing/or saying it to. You do NOT have the right to break another human being's heart. You have the right to feel about them as you wish, but you do not have the "right" to tell them that they should die, just because YOU don't like them for whatever bullshit reason you can come up with to suit your low-ass self-esteem. Having "Freedom of Speech" does NOT MEAN that you can tell people that they're ugly, that their lives are worthless nor that their efforts are useless. If you truly do not care about someone, you would not take the time out of your day to go onto their webpage and write something awful to them. I strongly dislike Katy Perry's music and guess what? I never search her up anywhere - BECAUSE WHY WOULD I? It would be a ridiculous waste of time for me to look up her videos on youtube, watch them, obviously dislike them and then post something dumb in the comments. It's stupid! It doesn't help anyone and it doesn't serve any purpose! It's a waste of fucking time!!!! [insert frustrated face here]
I believe in the importance and vitality of freedom of speech - but I do not believe in the misuse of it, which is what I believe this whole "religion-mockery" has ultimately become. It is not about freedom of speech anymore, it's about pushing the limits and stretching the boundaries to see how far we can go before people snap and we get a reaction. It's become a childish game of who can do what to whom, why they're entitled to do so and how people's reactions are ground for prejudice - and that quite frankly makes me fucking sick. 

The printing of the Prophet Mohammed has shown itself to be an awful idea before. Jyllandsposten (a Danish newspaper) found that out a couple of years ago. Back then I didn't realize why people were so angry, because "Hey? You can just ignore them". But the other day, as I was discussing this with a friend for her paper in English class, it hit me - they actually can't. If they're walking down the street, minding their own business and their eyes wander across the landscape they might encounter a newspaper stand having put those images out front. Using the argument "Just don't look!" is so stupid, because you'd have to look at least once to realize that you don't want to see it. Muslims are being forced to look at images that are banned a sin by their culture - and we are forcing them to sin because WE CAN? Danish people are "protestant", but we're mostly known for "naaah we don't really give a fuck" - and I think that that's why we don't understand. Our relationship with faith is incredibly casual (if not non-existent) and we have no culture anymore that involves praying, honoring and following the teachings of a prophet or a god. Being a non-believer is cool! But forcing believers to sin is not cool at all. And abusing the right of expression to do that is not cool either. While it's widely argued whether or not Mohammed actually forbade images of him to be created, I still don't see the "humor" in picturing him as an extremist. Extremists can be muslim, but Islam is not extremist and does not encourage extremist behavior. Sure, the journalists of Charlie Hebdo can claim that they're poking fun at extremists, but it doesn't make sense to claim that you're not mocking a religion, when you've painted a picture of an extremist prophet just to piss people off. You could have chosen ANYone as the muslim representative, but you chose their sacred PROPHET?! Muslims in Europe already have a hard-ass time trying to fit in, integrate and feel at home. Why do these papers feel this insatiable urge to mock, aggravate and provoke them? It's like "If they don't react, they're bad muslims. If they do react, they're extremists and we should kick them out of our countries" is the general thought process here.

With that said, extremists attacking and killing journalists is WRONG. I 100% agree with the general "Je Suis Charlie"-message that we should not and will not censor our media, because a certain religious group does not like what we post or talk about. I also do not think that violence solves anything and to be honest, I find violence to be one of the most primitive means of an attempt at an "argument". It doesn't help. It doesn't justify, change or solve anything. You're just killing people and just because you didn't die in this battle, doesn't mean that you're the winner either. I'm pretty sure I read a part of the Quran a while ago, where it said that one should be faithful but NEVER force another being into faith, because that would cause nothing but fear and rebellion. What I would LOVE to see is anyone of faith, having felt hurt by these (or any) comics, grab a pen, paper and fight words with words. Draw the SHIT out of God, make mockery of France, America's pathetic excuse of an educational system, - even take a piss at Denmark! Grab a pen and illustrate how our government leaders act like fucking idiots, spending government funds on expensive suits because "well I couldn't afford it with my own money". Fight ink with ink! Don't grab a damn gun, because grabbing a gun and KILLING SOMEONE, because they said or drew something that you didn't like, will only prove the image of primitivity that the Western world has a tendency to unfairly hold Islam to. 

Imagine the confusion of the Western media if you released portraits of their flawed societies. Yeah, Europe can mock your faith and your prophet, but our social customs and ways of perception are so fucking flawed that you would have material for YEARS, just saying. We're so out of it that all we can point at you for is your prophet.. "Ha ha your God is stupid!"?!(?????) We have dozens of things that are so fucked up in our societies - our view on each other being the WORST thing by far closely followed by how fucking entitled we are - but the only thing we can laugh about is your religion? Really? It kills me that the actions of crazy extremists out-roar the beautiful gestures of muslim families taking in poor, Danish families for Christmas over the holidays, because these Danish families couldn't afford roast and a Christmas tree for themselves. It breaks my heart to know that majority of muslims lead beautiful, kindhearted lives; being open-minded, thoughtful, lawful, paying taxes to our society, creating economic flow with their local stores and giving their kids an education - yet all we see them as is terrorists and bombers? Are you fucking kidding me? We can hear 1,000 beautiful stories of kind-hearted immigrants in this god-forsaken country, but as soon as ONE acclaimed muslim fucks up, it's suddenly every muslim's fault? 

I am, though, having a hard time understanding why anyone would be angry if someone talked shit about their god - mainly because I'm not religious, but also because when I was religious, I had faith in my god. I didn't care about anyone else's view on God or how they felt about him. I just didn't give a shit. Everyone's relationship with god is different and personal. Your god and your relationship with your god is yours - it has nothing to do with anyone else and their opinion should not matter. If you believe in God, have faith in him. Trust him and trust that he will feel no harm towards the hateful words of others - and that he wouldn't want you to be tainted by them to either. Because they're just words. Mohammed didn't want you to picture him, because he feared that people would idolize him (at least that's what some Islam Studies people say). Let the foolish non-believers picture him, for their mockery leaves your prophet at no risk. Believe in your god, honor your prophet and live a good, kind life. You cannot kill fire with fire and you cannot expect everyone to honor your particular god, especially not if you force them. Accept other people and expect nothing but acceptance in return. And if people are not willing to accept you? Then walk away. You don't need them and it's a complete waste of time to try to educate people, who believe that they're better than you, anyway. Your lord may be the juiciest, most nourishing of peaches - yet some people simply don't like peaches. Kill people's ignorance with kindness and enlightenment. Let people talk, let them draw and let them act out in the name of "Freedom of Speech" - but don't you dare aim a gun at them, claiming to act in the name of Islam, which fundamentally preaches tolerance and LOVE. Because THAT, my friend, is such a strong sign of defeat and that will completely kill the original voice of the Quran. Instead of threatening people and forcing them to respect you - give them reason to. Make them unable not to.

There is no point in "scaring" people into not posting certain things, because then we'll be back at where we started before freedom of speech came into the picture. If you're offended by something? Great. Speak up! Create awareness. But don't give me the "Oh this soap is called Mediterranean-something and that offends me because I'm from Turkey and there's more to my country than water and soap"-bullshit. Don't drag entitlement into this, because you're so out of things to complain about that that's all you got.. that's the white folks' job. [sassy white gurl face here, because let's be real 눈.눈] Give me the raw truth. Tell me what is harmful and how we can stop it. Teach us how to make shit better! That's why we're all here! We need to learn from each other, educate one another and help each other move forward. It's so important that we work together and euthanize this whole "them" and "us"-shit, because it's not helping anyone.

And to the entitled, extremely embarrassing movement that has risen in Europe;
Would you get the fuck over yourselves?
Violence solves nothing, but provocation sure as fuck doesn't help. What point are you proving? That 'yes, indeed, bulls don't like red cloths'? WHY do you have to use methods that are so 3rd grade, when you're clearly dealing with extremist people that are extremely (haha) sensitive to provocation? You saw this coming. Don't act all innocent, here. You basically kicked a lion in the face and are now running around in the streets yelling "LIONS ARE VICIOUS HUMAN-PROSECUTORS" because it bit you in return? I'm not justifying the actions of the extremists (I already argued how primitive their response was), but can you PLEASE stop acting as if this happened completely out of your hands - as if we hadn't seen this happen before? Yes, freedom of speech is something we should protect and be proud of - but on that note, could you PLEASE stop abusing it and taking advantage of its definition by throwing dirt in people's faces and then claim victim when shit hits the fan?

This whole incident went like*:
- "I have the right to piss them off, so I will"
- 'Oh but sir, they might do something extreme tho...'
- "Yeah, but we'll take the chance IN THE NAME OF FREE PRESS. Wahahhaha! Yes!" 
- 'But we've seen this before and it didn't go well.'
- "I know, but we have freedom of speech, so let's see how far we can take it"
-  *shit goes down big time and people die in a tragic shooting*
- "This is a great example of how Islam is awful and we should protect freedom of speech from these awful, awful people who are trying to take over our society!"


*clearly a dramatization, lol

I mean... are you kidding me? This is a great example of why we should protect freedom of speech, indeed - but not from muslims. Rather from the entitled fuck-heads who think that freedom of speech is a legitimate reason to hurt people intentionally. We're allowed to think for ourselves, people. Hell, we NEED to! Instead of escalating shit into a disaster from the beginning, how about using our freedom of speech for GOOD? Snowden is an excellent example of freedom of speech being utilized as intended; government is doing sneaky shit and we need to raise awareness because what they're doing is WRONG! Fuck yeah, dude! Good job, Snowden! Another great example is Malala Yousafzai - raising awareness of the suppression of girls and how they're denied education in her home country, Pakistan. She was attempted assassinated several times but stood by her word and kept fighting! She went against the fucking Taliban! By utilizing media and their freedom of speech, they created incredible results and made the entire world aware of what was going on. This is what freedom of speech is all about! We need to use our freedom to create equality, awareness and to employ relevant solutions to fix what is wrong in this world. We were not granted freedom of speech as a tool to undermine populations, mock religion and hurt people. I am all for the rights to express one self, but I do NOT condone anyone abusing our rights in the name of freedom, just to make fun of people or intentionally provoke a reaction that is completely unnecessary. 
I am NOT saying that the victims of the shooting at Charlie Hebdo had it coming (though part of me is very tempted to say (and feel) that). I am not saying that the extremists were right for doing what they did NOR will I EVER condone murder as a solution to anything. But what I will say is that in my opinion, Charlie Hebdo could have utilized "freedom of speech" in much better ways, creating an awareness and debate about the fear of extremist attacks much more effectively. They proved nothing of relevance by drawing extremely offensive "satire" drawings of Mohammed and then provoking a reaction. It doesn't prove that our freedom of speech is under attack or that it's threatened - it only proves that we're so out of ways to utilize it, that we start using it for dumb, meaningless shit. I see no point in the Mohammed drawings, I clearly have no clue what the fucking point of creating and releasing them was and I honestly can't say that I'm a wholehearted "supporter" of Je Suis Charlie, because what exactly is this all for? They say it's for freedom of speech and free press, but are we really trying to protect our freedom of speech as it was INTENDED - or are we just super confused as to what we're really trying to do with this? We should be able to start debates, we should be able to discuss religion and talk about this freely - but as soon as we start intentionally hurting each other, hiding behind a "right" like this..? I cannot and will not support that. This is not what freedom of speech is about.

I don't know. I feel that now, in 2015 (and even in 2014 as well), it's become a tendency for people to be EXTREMELY entitled to do and say all sorts of stupid shit. The entitlement sees no limitations as to what it will demand and shall have. "I have the right..", "I am entitled to", "it's in the constitution that..", "I should get..", "I demand.." - it sees no end. People apparently have such incredible rights that they don't know how to use them. They forgot what the rights were truly there for and they forgot WHY. It's so fucking frustrating to see this abuse of rights going left and right every single day, because some people have it SO good that they're out of legitimate things to complain about. So what do they do? They start picking at benign little scratches in the surface, claiming them to be huge tumors of discomfort. People turn to social media to raise awareness of "offensive causes" that by now are SO fucking STUPID, that I cannot even fathom what the fuck people are thinking anymore (it does appear, actually, that they may not be thinking at all). We tip-toe between entitlement and "political correctness" so much that we can't even tell them apart anymore. What are we really fighting for and why? Does it even truly matter? Are we really so self-centered that we think that our petty opinion of something so painfully benign is super important to the world as a whole?

It seems like a huge waste of resources to me. We could be bringing incredible stories of people doing amazing things every day. GOOD news! Let's bring in the roll of good news and let's give the spotlight and attention to more Snowdens and more Malalas in the future! Instead of focusing on this one offended person, who's angry about Britney Spears' eyebrows, we could focus on what's really important. We fight for equality but some equality we apparently don't want, because then it's cultural appropriation? To me it just seems that we are SO mind-numbingly self-centered. We're so selfish by now that only our opinions matter and they should matter equally as much to everyone else too, otherwise they simply don't understand our struggle. What the hell happened, guys? Could we all just have a meeting back down on earth, please? Where did you all get these pedestals from?

All I'm saying is that a little kindness and a little care for other people goes a long way. Stop expecting the WORST, stop thinking exclusively of yourself and start holding the door for the people that enter the building after you. Smile, compliment people and help them if they're about to drop their shit. If people fuck up - correct them, help them,  but don't smear it in their faces and don't break their little hearts! If you've been wronged - speak up, make people understand, but don't hold it against someone if they don't live their lives according to your struggles. I think what we truly forget way too often in this day and age is that we all have tiny, beating hearts. And all hearts can break. Some easier than others - but they can all break. You don't know how many cracks a person's heart has and you don't know if your insult could be the final blow. Why do we have this odd urge to fucking ruin each other all the time? Keep in mind that we all deal with shit. Why is it so "cool" and "admirable" to be a dumb-fuck dimwit? THINK for yourself, EXECUTE kindness and SPREAD some god damn love, people. We need to lift each other up instead of kicking each other to the curb and stomping on our faces. Be real - don't be a jerk. Be genuine - no frontin'. And most importantly - be kind. Is what you're about to say really worth it? Is it true? Is it kind? Is it helpful? Can we learn from it? If so.. speak on it, dude. If not? Think again. Could you potentially be hurting someone? Because if you could hurt someone with your words, would you find your point worth the pain? Would the person you're telling it to find it worth the pain?
I tend to come off as brutally honest and I don't sugarcoat anything. I think it's a waste of time to wrap shit up in cute little verbal bows, just because some people may or may not be offended by me saying "fuck" a few times (my British professor's struggle with my swearing is legit, ok. please pray for him). If you want the truth - Imma give it to you. I would never intentionally hurt someone, but I would also never lie to make someone feel a little more comfortable with a half-truth. I don't work that way. Some people hate it - others love it, because I ain't about that bullshit. I love people who speak the truth, but my trained eye (and mind) can also tell when people are truthful to hurt you, to uplift themselves or to simply be truthful. Try to pay attention to what people are saying, pay attention to their body language, their intonation, their eyes (unless they grew up in a pack of dogs like me where eye contact means "I can beat you up dude, and I fucking might", then don't mind the eyes.). I think if we paid a little more attention to our surroundings, put on our positivity-hat and assumed more kindness than doubt, then society would improve so rapidly you have no idea.

Ugh, I feel like this whole rant may have painted a picture of an extremist-sympathizer. Or maybe it painted a picture of a stupid girl with a naive outlook on the world. I just truly wish that we'd stop fronting, stop talking shit and just get real for a second. What is TRULY going on here and how can we fix this shit? Are our problems really problems are are we just whining because we can?

GAHH, the frustration I hold for humanity is breeding in my head


Anyway

I honestly just needed to post this into the interweb space and get it off my chest, because this whole "freedom of speech" and entitlement bullshit has been bothering me for quite a while. Also I may have used a little too many gifs, lol. Aren't gifs so great, though?

Hope you're all well!
and I hope that you enjoyed (or just read) this entry.
MUCH LOVE
