MEME TIME

"You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think, "Wait a minute. Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when?" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from it. One-word answers seldom help anyone."



1. First Name:
Matt.

2. Age:
21.

3. Location:
Federal Way, WA

4. Occupation:
Does "jobless college student" count as an occupation?

5. Partner:
Never had, except for a couple online things. Those didn't work out. At all.

6. Kids:
Probably never going to happen, but I don't want them anyway.

7. Brothers/Sisters:
Two sisters and a brother, by marriage and not birth.

8. Pets:
Currently, one ~2-year-old long-haired Dachshund, name of Duncan. He's my Mom's and not mine, and don't let her tell you anything different. >_>

Previously: My Mom loves Dachshunds, so we've had several over the course of my life. First was a short-haired one named Gretchen, who they had before I was born. Died at the age of 17ish, I think, while I was in elementary school still. Second was a younger one by the name of Cuddles, whom we wound up getting rid of because she was a real asshole. Third was a Dachshund/Terrier mix named Wrangler, who we got rid of due to being too damned energetic.

I used to fancy myself a dog lover as a kid, but now I'm really, really not. Still, even I have to admit that our current dog is much less of an abject failure than the previous two. I like him okay... for a dog.

9. List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life:
* School coming up soon (BUT YOU GUYS KNEW THAT because I can't shut up about it)
* Uh... that's about it. 8|

10. Parents:
Divourced while I was in elementary school. Dad remarried, Mom didn't. I still have a hard time imagining how they could ever have been compatible enough to have gotten married, but what am I complaining about, it worked out well enough for me. ;o

Related: it is very, very awkward to be talking to your mom and discover that she had been married once before your dad, and to have not found out about this until you were in high school. That was surreal. My dad said it was my fault for not knowing, but honestly, how am I supposed to think to ask about something like that!?

11. Who are some of your closest friends:
In no particular order: Taylor, Michael, Beth, Alpha... did I miss anyone?

Dear Washington.

I know we've had our disagreements. I know things get rocky between us every now and then. But in spite of all that, I just wanted to say...

...Don't stop being you. I love this state.

That's all.

--Love, Matt

P.S., do work on that other 47%, though, huh?

I lol'd

So I just saw this on someone's Facebook page. Apparently my eye color means:

"People with green eyes are sexy and seductive. They are the most passionate lovers. They have an air of mystery around them. They are beautiful and always attracted to the opposite sex. They can be very good friends. They like nature and the outdoors. They have an adventurous streak in them. Green-eyed people are usually quite jolly and love to crack jokes." (emphasis mine)

Oh really

Advice?

Say you've got a secret.

Say you've got people you want to tell this secret, so that it's not a friggin' secret anymore.

But the problem is that there's almost no way to worm the subject into casual conversation unless someone directly asks you. And it would be incredibly awkward to just toss it out there with no lead-in.

How the hell do you do it? I've no skill at conversation, so things like this that should be obvious to me, aren't.

So, there's something I've been mulling around in my head lately. It feels suspiciously like a rant brewing up in there, actually; so I figured I'd get my thoughts out in writing, if for nothing else than the satisfaction of making them concrete.

So, here goes, I guess.

Hm. Well, my friends seem to be on a binge of angsty posts where they relate all the stuff that's bugging them-- I figure I ought to look for a little emotional support, too. Actually, I had something very specific in mind.

I suppose you guys deserve a little more than I gave you in my last post... so, I'm prepared to relate a few more details, but it really can't be anything more than a rough outline. Hopefully, someday I'll be able to tell all the details, but I really don't think everyone's ready to hear them yet.

OK. Imagine if you will the following "hypothetical situation". Person A likes Person B. A lot. But Person A is afraid of what will happen if he relates his feelings to Person B. So, he keeps his feelings secret. He's also pretty sure that he would never have a chance with Person B anyways. However, imagine that the Fates decide to drive this point forcefully home one day-- when Person A finds out on a certain 17th of April that Person B is already taken. Fits of angst ensue; Person A can't just erase his feelings for Person B, but now he knows for certain that those feelings will never go anywhere and will just result in more heartbreak. And he still really wants to be friends with Person B, too. But those conflicting feelings are unpleasantly like being torn in half. So, what is Person A to do?

That's something like it, at any rate. I'm really not sure how to deal with this.

On a somewhat related note, I'm fucking tired of secrets. Everybody has them; but not everybody can share them, even with people they care about. So, what are we to do? Think of this post as something of a "rebellion" against those secrets.

I really do appreciate you guys-- I want you to know that.

I hate putting on a happy face when I feel like I want to cry. I REALLY do. And it's usually what I end up doing anyways. Dammit.

Long story short: something happened today. I can't say what it was; it's too personal to even put in a protected entry. But I will say this: Don't ever get heartbreak. It sucks.

I'll probably be OK, but I need some time to sort some things out with myself. I don't know.

Dear GOD, this makes me mad. I have to RANT. NOW.

This may make some people angry. If you're offended by dissenting views on religious philosophy, or are sensitive about your religious beliefs, do NOT follow this cut. It may be your worldview I'm clobbering.

EDIT: Fuck it. EVERYBODY needs to read this. Taken out of the cut.

From an article on why the church opposes homosexuality I stumbled upon just now:

"Homosexuals and lesbians seldom are happy people. Theirs is a relationship that is unnatural, one not bound by fidelity, trust, or loyalty, and one totally lacking in the meaningful family relationships that marriage offers. Homosexuality often espouses emotional problems because of the constant insecurity inherent in a relationship neither sanctioned by nor protected by the law.

Because there is no legal bond, homosexuality too often encourages, or at least permits, promiscuity."


Okay, first of all. WHO is it that's trying virulently to make sure no possibility for a legal bond exists? Jesus, the hypocrisy, it BURNS.

Second, what the hell is up with the holier than thou act? Just because they aren't currently capable of obtaining an official legal bond, or a "sanctioned" pairing according to your parameters, they have no capability of being true to eachother? Their relationship can only be a committed one if you recognize it as a valid relationship? And because, since it's not between a man and a woman, this love is "fake", and gays will just go off and have sex with whomever they feel like? I notice that religious condemnations of homosexuality NEVER acknowledge it as actual love; as if straight people are the ones that are qualified to make that judgement. GodDAMMIT.

And yes, if you haven't figured out by now, I don't see homosexuality as a bad thing. And I hate discrimination with a PASSION. If you have a problem with that, you can kindly shove it.

And about opposing homosexuality "because the Bible sez so"? Yeah, NO. The Bible is merely a convenient cover; people aren't brought up to believe that any relationship besides the typical male-female is, quote, "natural", so they naturally see it as disgusting, because they can't wrap their mind around how any affectionate emotional bond would stray from those "natural" guidelines. But when one hates something, one must defend one's reasons for hating it, so as not to have said hatred appear as baseless and illogical as it truly is. So what's the best way to defend opposing something that you dislike without pesky logic interfering? The Bible, of course.

If you still argue "The Bible sez so", I can gladly break out the Leviticus 11:10 and Romans 7:6 arguments. Though if the controversy is half as heated as it sounds, they should have been done to death already. Should have.

And PLEASE, don't get me started on this ridiculous idea that gays have this monolithic "agenda" that homophobes are always invoking to instill some kind of irrational fear into the average family person. Even if there was such a thing as "recruiting", the gay community as a whole isn't nearly organized enough to have anything resembling an agenda. I have, however, noticed some oddly agenda-like movements within organized religion in America against homosexuality. Just a thought.

So, in conclusion, Jesus would slap the shit out of you. Thank you for tuning in to today's edition of Majutsukai Rants™, and have a nice day. ^-^

Political rant under the cut. Not for those easily offended by liberal opinions.

Repent America: The picture next to 'Holier than Thou' in the dictionary )

Whew. I don't do nearly enough of those. >.>

Anyways, I finally got a cellphone. ^^ Now I just wish I could get custom ringtones onto the thing, but it's not internet capable. -_-'

Blech, I spent the whole weekend doing homework. >< I'm not going to like my AP classes, I can already tell. I'm buried in stuff already, but if I miss anything it's really going to start piling up. -_-

Also, Megaman Next is up to 13 episodes, and we're thinking about getting hosting on Bob and George. ^^

Well, this break has been pretty uneventful so far.
My stepmom maintains that it's a break from school, not a break from having to do stuff. So, I've had at least one job every day this week to do instead of the plain old resting that I've been wanting to do. I've gotten in a fair amount of that still, but she even tries to make me feel guilty for that.
Also, my dad has taken a bit of an interest in the sites that I visit. Maybe he thinks I'm going to sites that I shouldn't be going to (a patently ridiculous idea, beings that I know that he likes to keep a 1984-esque eye on the things I do on the computer already, and he knows I know), but at any rate, I now feel like I'm in a steel cage that prevents me from going to any site that he might misinterpret as bad.
Tomorrow is [livejournal.com profile] hobbit_hunter's birthday party. My dad's supposed to be driving me there tomorrow, but he says that if he's called in for work, he won't be able to and I'll be stuck. >_< Not only that, but I have to take care of several (coughgiftcough)-related woes before noon tomorrow. Which is turning out to be a more definitive problem. x_x
As a slight un-burdening, it is REALLY annoying to have to listen to my stepmom and stepsister fight out in the living room (loud voices, especially from the latter). That's why I'm wearing headphones right now. ^^ *tunes out*
And, as a final note, I'm getting back into Chrono Trigger now that I have FF Chronicles, and secretly installed my old PSX at my mom's house in light of my restriction. :p
