Ya know what sucks?

-When somebody you really really really really REALLY care about is in a situation where they are emotionally getting hurt. And by hurt... I mean HURT. And they know that they need you there to help them get through it. But it almost seems as if they're trying to do it on their own. You don't want to force yourself on them cause you don't want it to seem like you're coming down on them, but you just can't stand to seee that person getting hurt. You want to turn and look the other way but you can't get the picture of them crying out of your mind. It bothers you, terrifies you to even think about the pain that they're going through. You try to help, you want to help but you don't know how to. You wish you had the answer to all their questions but you DON'T. And that's what's hurting you the most is that you know they need your help but you don't know how to help them. As you ponder the situation, you think of ideas, plans to get them out of their predicament and they shut it down almost as if they were to afraid to pursue it. Your'e at a lost for words. Time is running out. You need to get them out.


-What do you do?


What can you possibly say to make the world a better place?



Can you REALLY help them?



You hear their desperate cry and you freeze because you're at a lost for words.



-What do you do?

Things that make me go WTF!!!!

['Where can you be safe?'
Fatal Detroit church shooting may have been revenge
Oralander Brand Williams, Dorothy Bourdet and David G. Grant / The Detroit News]

----Why?

Why would someone want to do a shooting in a place of worship? It's not even about it being a church. It could've been a synagouge and I STILL would've been pissed off!!!!! I mean, what kinda of douchebag would want to KILL a person at a church before the service started. That either takes balls or pure stupidity! Apparently this girl Williams didn't want to marry this guy Collins. And so he gets pissed and decides to beat the crap out of her, again at the church, three weeks prior to the shooting. She had a restraining order on him which was violated when he came to the church and began choking her and beating her. Police had on record the report, but, COULDN'T EXPLAIN why he WASN'T ARRESTED. Three weeks later, he shoot up the same church looking for Williams.


-Why wasn't he arrested when he violated the restraining order????? It was obviously aggravated assault!!!!

Why.

Fakeness/Posers.

I love seeing people, ESPECIALLY guys, trying to act tough when they're around their friends. It's hillarious watching them. They get all loud and aggresive and they like to get in other people's faces. But, when they're all by their lonesome... they act like the biggest wussies. They're quiet and timid. Why do people pose so much.

For instance....

There's a kid I know who refers to himself as Emcee Dom V. It's hillarious because he thinks he's the baddest rapper around. He thinks he's all GQ, Thug and street... when really, he's a fat asian boy from Guam who has never had a girlfriend, never got into a fight, has barely hit puberty, and will probably be the first ot back out of a fight. In other words.... FAKE!!!!!!

-Don't kid yourself "Dom V".... his real name is Sean. and he's only 13. The baddest? HELL NO!!!!!!

Hence.... the only question I have for posers and fake people is.... why? -just be yourself. its not friggin HOLLYWOOD.



best place to watch the Pistons play

My Room:

Yup, that's right! I got a futon, a tv, some pillow, a blanket (if necessray), and FREE chips and pop-courtesy of mom and dad. Of course, you don't get to watch the game LIVE... but hey... at least I don't have to pay 10 bucks to get a friggin drink or for some nachos. And, being short, I have a pretty good view of the game right in my own bed. I get to kick back, relax, and chill while watching the Pistons dominate on the court.

-of course, this post is useless to most of you because more than likely, none of you will be in my room anytime soon.

Must you constatntly knock me down everytime I get up?
Must you constantly weigh me down before I can jump?

Do you despise me to the point where the very depths of your soul hold onto an unsettled fight one that lies down beneath
The very core of your heart

Beneath the mind and emotions beyond the unconcious mind always looking at my feet to see if I cross the line

Does it matter, do you see that all this time how much I try. All you see is my failure as I just let out a sigh.

One of anguish, dashed hope, and depression. You take me on the trip and then you throw me overboard.

Should I surrender, give the one I love a kiss good-bye? No! I will not be intimidated, I will continue to fight.

I will charge in with intensity to gain my rights.

The right to love, the right to life, to share with the one who caught my eye.

Jasmine: Positive Representation
The city fo LA is presented in a positive way in that there is so much to see and do. You can just walk around to see everything. The Experience LA site says "who says you need a car to get around LA?" This means the streets are safe and there is always someyhing to do righy around the corner. They also show different activities to do from different cultures which shows how diverse they are in LA.

Cierra: Personal Experience
I had a chance to go to LA when I was six years old and I have some wonderful memories. In LA there were a lot of beautifulpalm trees and there were a lot of hills. I got a chance to go to a concert. Since my aunt worked for a record label I got a chance to meet some celebrities such as Tisha Campbell, Immature and Raven Symone. The only thing that bothered me was there was no Mc Donald's, there was a Jack in the Box. Other than that I had a really good time!

MORE things that make me go huh?!?

Vadalism:

Why? What's the point? Does it give a person pleasure to destroy something or "mark" their territory? I personally think that it is stupid.

Why TAG something? Nobody knows nor does anyone care that you TAGGED something!!

adios.

Things That Make Me Go.. "HuH?!?"

Shut Up:

Do you ever hang out with people who just don't know when to SHUT UP! They babble on and on... and on and on and on and on and on... And it seems that they somehow have the ability to tie every thing that they are talking about to something else that they want to talk about... for example:


"I had pizza the other night, it had onions on it. I don't like onions because they make your breath stink. Oh! I remember going on a date with this guy once and his breath smelled like onions. My mom really liked him. My mom made apple pie the other day. It was kinda like the one that they had in American Pie. Did you ever go see Band Camp? It was a funny movie kinda like Scary Movie, I think they should make another movie. I heard they're coming out with this new one called Date Movie or something like that. I want to go on a date. But I'm too shy to ask anyone out. I think I'm ugly. Or maybe a little too fat... I don't know... Oh! did you watch the news today... "


See what I mean? Conversations such as the one previously heard may occur for a span of FOREVER if not stopped.

How can people talk that much??????

-All I can say is...
HUH?!?



adios.
