People who make a big deal out of not using social media.
Like, so fucking what? sure, Facebook Has over a billion users. But there are over 6 billion people on the planet.
In case you are bad at numbers, that is kinda a really big difference. So when I was in class yesterday and some guy was like: “I don’t use facebook.” Like it was a big fucking deal and he is a shining beacon of individuality among a bunch of donelike sheeple* I became annoyed.
So if you use tumblr, facebook, twitter, and more. You are no better nor no worse than those who use none of the above. Just because you claim facebook is the best ever and other social media sites are inferior (or behave the same only about tumblr or twitter instead of facebook) It does not make you a better person.
Really, it just makes you sound like a pretentious self-righteous tool and I want you off the internet please.
*I don’t know if you call it irony or something else, but the same guy later talked about how he was totally going to tweet about something.
And one of the things I am most excited about is no more school pizza.
I GET TO EAT GOOD PIZZA YOU GUYS!
(I don’t eat much pizza, I am just sick of walking past the school pizza and visualizing delicious pizza)

WHAT COLOR ARE MIRRORS
let’s reflect on this
Your feelings on the situation aren’t very clear.
So, you could call this an open letter to ‘nice guys’ I suppose. It’s more just another thought I had.
So, i am in college now. So I am right in the thick of 18-21 year old males who want to hook up with someone who has boobies. what’s more, the student body here is around 70% male, 30% female. So it’s a huge race between a lot of the guys here to see who can get a girl first.
Now, online, I see a lot of self-proclaimed ‘nice guys’ who never get the girl because the girls supposedly always make poor choices and go for jerks while friendzoning the nice guys. (Note: I do not follow this mindset).
But after observing these ‘nice guys’ at my school and their interactions with women, I realized something. For the most part, guys, you are friendzoning yourselves. Here is a pattern I have noticed of a lot of the ‘nice guys’. They obviously like a girl, want a relationship, but they don’t say anything. Instead, they are very nice (obviously a good thing. I mean, be nice. Girl or boy. Just be a nice person) and use whatever tactics they can to get close to this girl.
One of the most common ones I have seen (in at least 3 different guys) is they refer to the girl as ‘like a sister’ They never say ‘I like you’ or anything (no matter how obvious it is) They instead play the sister card so they have an excuse to hang out with her and stuff. Now, think about that for a sec, guys. You want to be her boyfriend. Or at the very least see this lady naked. You want to be all up in her business. She may even feel the same way.
But if she’s like: “Damn that boy is fine and he is totally my type I can see a successful relationship between the two of us.” And you’re all: “You’re like my sister.” Do you honestly expect her to say: “Oh good! Can we date or make the sex now?” I mean, maybe you’ll find a girl who will respond like that. But a logical, sane human being will think: ‘Oh, so he wants to be friends. OK.’
The other (which I have seen more) is just “Yeah, we should just be friends.” Cause then, you can get close to her but don’t worry hun! He just wants to be friends. Nothing more. Don’t worry, he’s not secretly wishing you would start touching his boner or anything else. See guys, that’s like the exact opposite of progress. It works, sure. And maybe you DO want to just be friends. (I have lady friends who I just wish to be friends with and vice versa. It happens). But if you are just saying this and want more than that, …. Well, don’t just say that, then. You can’t expect someone to ask you for a relationship after you tell them you don’t want a relationship.
Now, I absolutely understand how difficult it is to tell a girl how you feel. I have been in that position. I have tried to tell a girl how I felt. You want so badly for her to know, but you are terrified of rejection. And here’s the thing.
That rejection? It hurts. A LOT. Having been rejected, I can say that it is earth shattering and you feel like life will never be the same. Like your heart has been ripped from your body and you will never recover.
But you will. it can take a while, but you will. Being told ‘I like you as a friend’. Basically destroyed me. But I healed, and couldn’t be happier with my life. So stop trying to get close to a girl by playing those cards then getting upset when she finds another man. You can’t expect a girl to run into your arms when you basically outright tell her you don’t want that. You also can’t expect her to just wait around for you to be ready Take a risk. Get hurt. Pick yourself up. And chances are you can still be friends.
No, I don’t expect anyone to take this to heart. I don’t even expect everyone to read the whole thing. And as much as I wish guys would step back and reassess the way they are handling a situation, I know it won’t happen. But here are my thoughts for you to think about.
(Note: If this got on anyones nerves or you thought I handled it poorly, I apologize and would very much like to hear your perspective. My inbox is always open and we can discuss this like civilized adults if you wish.)
Now, I don’t expect this to change anyones morals. I don’t expect you to delete all illegally downloaded files and give money to companies. But it was just a thought I had.
A lot of people will try to justify piracy in a variety of ways. But the most common (and quite frankly the most annoying) is how they don’t want to support big corporations. Even when they don’t give a shit and the reason is just they want a thing and don’t want to spend money.
But here is a thing to think about. A new, highly anticipated game can cost over $50. That is a lot of money. And if you buy that from say, Gamestop, there will probably be tax which is MORE money. And the big gaming corporations make millions off a game that requires 3 months of patching while you’re a chump who just payed almost $60 for the new CoD or something.
But here’s the thing i was thinking about. The gaming company aren’t the only people making money. What about random gamestop employee #000652992? He/she gets paid. And while they probably get one dollar for every 12 copies sold, how many dollars do they get per 12 copies pirated?*
So I know the big guys are still making more money. And they always will. But in the process, other people are making money. And you know, you may one day be that person working at a bestbuy who misses out on a few extra dollars in your paycheck cause the newest Marvel movie got pirated a whole bunch.
Food for thought.
All that being said, I bet there is a torrent of Iron Man 3 out by now. It is a pretty good movie.
*Zero. They get zero dollars.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THEM, TRI!
