And I’m not gonna talk about it here :D

It’s boring D:

I’ll tell ya some stuff anyway.. I am taking part in making a Pagan website with a few other people.. that will be fun. I switched around the furniture in my room. I started going to the gym, lost 9 pounds, and stopped going >.>;. My computer got busted, so I got it fixed and replaced the graphics card. I bought a shit-ton of makeup. I made new friends. I bought a webcam. I’m starting to make vids for YouTube. I’m getting in touch with old friends more often. I went to Universal Studios Hollywood… twice. My parents finally know I don’t want to be  a Christian.. but I’ve yet to tell them about being Pagan. I’m getting in touch with my goth side again. I’m trying to dress like a girl now.. not so successful but I’m not giving up. I’m gonna learn how to play drums. My GH3 game got busted, so I bought GH2.. I was disappointed with Hangar 18.. it’s one of my favorite songs and they killed it  T_T. What else…. what else… what else? Meh.. can’t remember.

See ya..

Writing a paper on HIV is no fun

…So I won’t be talking about that here :P

What I did want to talk about is how many people think they’re Wiccan, when fact is… they’re not!

Ok, so these little teen fluffies think that they can call themselves Wiccan after reading a book by Silver Ravenwolf… and that’s it. That’s all they think they need.

First of all, in order for a person to be Wiccan, they need to be initiated into a lineaged coven so that they can learn all the oathbound material that they need to learn so that they can practice Wicca. Silver Ravenwolf is NOT a Wiccan. In her books, she has a lot of wrong information. For someone who has claimed that she has been initiated into a Wiccan coven, she should have had more accurate information. But no… she’s ass-raping the religion, shitting on it,  covering it with a shit-ton of glitter and fluff, wrongfully calling it Wicca… and then she sells it to impressionable teens.

Links on Ravenwolf to check out:

Second of all, people who are serious about learning about a religion cannot learn everything there is to learn about a religion by simply reading one book… I don’t know if I can say the same for Christianity because most Christians claim that everything a person has to learn is in their Bible, but some people can’t make up their minds whether to take it literally or figuratively, and there are books that can help with that, so I think you need more than the Bible to help you learn what Christianity is about. Plus, it takes a long time for someone to actually learn about a religion. People cannot learn about a religion in one sitting with some book, it’s impossible!

Those little fluffies still don’t get it though… Damn that Silver Ravenwolf and all those other similar authors for drilling all this bullshit into the heads of little teens just so that they can make lots of money… making the rest of us more-informed people clean up your messes.

Just to be clear, I’m not Wiccan. But I bet I can write a more decent and more well-informed book than those other impostors like Ravenwolf.

If anyone is interested in Wicca, these are suggestions for you. I found this list on Gaia (gaiaonline.com), posted by a user: Scorplett… a real Wiccan.

One Fifty-something in the Morning…

•April 7, 2009 • 2 Comments

I’m bored as hell,  so I’m making my own tinted lip balm. I went crazy and made one with a color that doesn’t suit me… or anyone else for that matter. It’s a silvery, bluish, purple. I tried mixing other colors with it (the little bit I put on my lips), but none work… it just looks worse. I guess I’ll leave it as a cream eyeshadow since it’d be awesome for that. My hands and desk are all shimmery now with the mess I’ve made. I’ll clean it up later on after I’ve had some sleep. Right now I’ll go wash my hands and put away my makeup. I’ll probably try to go to sleep right away after that, since I’m tired. I guess I shouldn’t stay up this late if I’m tired, but I’ve been cleaning stuff all day and I needed some time to myself. Spring break sucks so far… let’s see how the rest of the week goes… I might go to Universal Studios Hollywood. Can’t wait for that ^_^

See ya..

Where the Fuck was I?

•April 1, 2009 • 2 Comments

I’ll tell you where the fuck I was.

I’ve been at home and at school for most of the past month, or however long it was since I last posted. Busy with work, and feeling like shit. My blood pressure isn’t so great, so I’ve also started exercising and trying to eat healthier. It worked for a bit. But my dumbass thought that it’d be alright to pig out a few times because I felt better, but now I feel like shit again. It also doesn’t help that I’ve been stressing out so much.

-sigh-

    I’ve been browsing the web almost every day, but not for enough time to actually sit down and type something long and semi-meaningful, if at all meaningful… except for those arguments with some Christian dude on homosexuality. All I’m getting from him is that the main reason that homosexuality is wrong is just because his god says it’s wrong, and that should be good enough for everyone… bunch o’ bollocks if you ask me.

    I guess this is good enough of an update, my bed is looking very comfortable right now.

    See ya…

    I’m Booooored!

    I’ve been going to my new classes for a week, they seem pretty cool. Although I’ve hardly had any homework, I still find myself very busy with other things, mostly family related, and I come home pretty late, so that leaves me no time to do some stuff that I would like to do. I’ll be able to do most of my homework at school because I take a shuttle that takes students back and forth from the main campus to an educational center near where I live, and I have about 2 hours to spend while I wait for it… unless the schedule changes, but I guess I’ll still take it at the same time because I never get to do my homework at home since I’m always kept busy with chores and other stuff that my parents don’t want to do themselves.

    I’ve been thinking about the poetry thing I wanted to do, and I tried coming up with new poems, but I fail at coming up with something to write about. I haven’t had any inspiration lately. I have to get my mind working again.. get all the creative juices flowing again.

    I was supposed to go to Universal Studios Hollywood today, but those plans were cancelled because it was raining. A lot of good things are being cancelled for one reason or another… this sucks balls, man!

    I’m supposed to be getting ready for classes tomorrow, so I’ll cut this short.

    See ya…

    Finally!

    •February 6, 2009 • Leave a Comment

    I finally got to go to Olive Garden yesterday, and what people said was true. The food is sooooo gooooood! I had the Four Cheese Stuffed Mezzaluna with Shrimp. I wish I had some more right now. It’s too bad that this is only available for a limited time.

    I’m finally done with speech class and I’m on my break, unfortunately I only have two days left of it. Hopefully this semester won’t be as stressful. I’ll only have three classes.. four if you count the P.E. class. I’m very out of shape, so I chose to take this class, and maybe I’ll lose some weight.

    What else… what else? Damn, I forgot what else I wanted to say. Oh well…

    *Sigh*

    Man, I really have no luck. I still haven’t had Olive Garden food. Plans have changed twice since the last time I posted. The final change was made to Friday… it better be on Friday or else I’m gonna lose it! I’ve heard so much about how awesome the food there is, and I just want in on that awesomeness. No fair… T_T

    I am sooo tired of doing my work. It has taken a toll on my health, seriously. I’ve heard that working too hard is bad for your health but I never thought it could be true until now that it’s happened to me. I can’t wait for the three days of vacation until next semester starts…. woo hoo? Meh… I’ll probably spend them doing chores, watching movies, and wasting my life away on the internet.

    I’m very tired right now, but I’m not sleepy. I’m never sleepy at night for some reason. During any time of the day, if I’m tired and I just flop myself down on my bed, I’ll knock out very quickly. During any time of the night, if I’m tired and I just flop myself down on my bed, I’ll stay awake for about 3 hours before falling asleep. Being nocturnal is inconvenient for me these days. So right now, I’ll put my work aside since I’m confident I’ll finish it later on today, ready for Wednesday, and I’ll just watch some TV to help me fall asleep.

    See ya…
