I absolutely adore my Fridays.

Because I don't have to work, I get to clean the whole apt, I have my piano lesson, and I get to spend the wholeee day with Knight. <3

Today I should've done more though, I admit. And hopefully I'll find the motivation to do it after writing this entry. We'll see though, I can't make any promises...

Why? Cause we're packing up all our stuff, getting ready to move to our new place :) --Awww I wish the link from the real estate agency still worked >:( But since the unit was already sold, they didn't need to keep it there, I guess...

I'm super excited about our new place! :D :D :D So many projects, so little time (so little money right now, too!)...

Next time I'll take a video so I can post it here. ^_^

When I'm really awake at night, I like to memorize fast or rap parts to songs that I like.

Hi LJ, it has been a while. Life has been plenty eventful, but sometimes hard to describe, and with no time to write about it.

What brings me back? The stupidest thing, really.

So I leave my 2nd day of internship with CJPME at 11:30am and I'm getting home, leaving metro station Lionel-Groulx. I'm unlocking my bike when this guy startles me by asking me if I had some change to spare him for the bus, and then shows me he only has a loonie (bus costs $3) along with a huge smile, looking all friendly and shit. I give him my default answer, "No, I'm sorry, I don't have--" and before I can finish saying "I don't have any change," he shushes me. SHUSHES ME. His face changed completely from friendly, don't-you-want-to-help-me-'cause-I'm-so-nice face, to a face that said, "you already said no, don't give me any excuses, you're useless to me now, so shut the fuck up."

Honestly, I left so angry... sometimes you try to be nice and not just plain-out ignore people asking for money, but from now on, I'm going to... or I'm just going to say "No." No more "sorry," or "have a nice day nonetheless." Just look at them and say "No."

... Seriously. He shushes me and puts his finger to his lips. I wanted to slap him.

9/11  


I wish this could be a post about how 9/11 will "never be forgotten" and how I feel for the US, post it on FB, on G+ and whatever... you know, reach out and hug the US, like.. "aww... I'm so sorry..."

I'm not saying that I don't think that what happened on September 11th, 2001 was horrible.
I'm not saying that I don't think it's horrible that all those people died the way that died.
I'm not saying that what the hijackers did was excusable in any way. For I hope they're being punished in the afterlife for what they did.
I'm not saying that I don't think it incredibly sad that people lost a father, a mother, a son, a daughter, etc, and that some children will never meet one of their parents.

All of these things... they're tragic, if we're talking about the individuals that were affected.

But I'm sorry, I can't feel sorry for the US as a collective, as a government, solely because of the way they retaliated after 9/11.

First, please keep in mind all of my "I'm not sayings"s above.

Now, what about the Iraq war? How many people died in the following years after the US suddenly decided to shift its attention from Afghanistan to Iraq, even though they knew they didn't have any weapons of mass destruction? Just because they wanted to get rid of Saddam Hussein and impose their own "democracy." How much did not just the country, but the Iraqi culture lose when US troops were ordered not to intervene when historic libraries and museums were being ransacked? 7000 years of history were lost when they were! How do you think people in Afghanistan & Iraq live ever since 9/11? After the US army comes in thinking they know better than everybody and impose their rules on locals, changing their lives forever, putting them against a rock and a hard place... (doomed if you cooperate on a local level, doomed if you don't because they'll think you're with the enemy).

The Bush administration disgusts me, with the decisions due to their ignorance, with their refusal to accept anything people with expertise in Middle-East relations would advise them, and their new-age version of the White Man's Burden. They justified all of their horrible decisions by taking on a paternalistic approach and telling the American people that what they were doing were in their name, and that it was the right thing to do. They took advantage of the fact that the American people felt vulnerable and took that as carte blanche to do whatever they fuck they wanted, and however they fuck they wanted to do it. Abu Ghraib, for example?

In essence, I think the American people are also victims of the decisions the Bush administration took, because they will have to live with that stigma, and people around the world will look at them going, "oh, poor you, 9/11? 3000 people died? well, in my country, tens or hundreds of thousands or even millions of people die every year BECAUSE of your country's constant decisions to butt in whenever they feel they're in the least bit threatened."

It's not good to compare tragedies, for in the end, what does that do? What does that solve? Nothing. But just I feel like 9/11, just for the mere fact that it was a blow to the US, it reverberated throughout the world. But what about all of those who have died, who have been terrorized, who have been tortured, and those who have been severely discriminated against because the US thinks of them as a threat? Mainly Muslim-Americans.

So, I'm sorry, but these are the things that come into my mind when I think of 9/11. Along with this:


::EDIT:: Huh. I just read this article: [CLICK], and, if you didn't understand what I wanted to say in this entry, this article pretty much says exactly what I wanted to say.
