I admit it: I complain on a daily basis. At the very least, I know I fail to appreciate what I have the majority of the time. Then my dad told me about the Fukushima 50. Suddenly, everything came into perspective and my complaints didn't seem like things to complain about.
I cannot describe how much I fear for, yet admire, these (now presumably 279) workers who are knowingly risking their lives for the safety of their nation. Despite the obvious risks, it seems there was no doubt in their minds as what choice they would make when the time came. All the world can do is hope that their work is not in vain, and pray that someone is watching over them. I know that they'll be in my thoughts and prayers for some time.

Toronto terrorism...
Penguin
audi
I found this interesting enough to make a public post about.
For those of you who aren't aware, Toronto was the target of terrorism, had plans not been foiled by police.

"At a press conference in Toronto on Saturday, McDonell showed samples of the evidence gathered against the men including the main explosive fuel - ammonium nitrate - a common fertilizer. McDonell said the group ordered and received three tons of the chemical for use in terrorist attacks. "If I can put this in context for you, the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklhoma City that killed 168 people was completed with only one ton of ammonium nitrate," he said..."
More information can be found HERE and HERE

Scary stuff.
My guess? Our subway line.

Seeing as how I'm not upset with very many people at all, if you think this is about you (after reading the entry) it most likely is. I put it on here knowing that you might read it, or you might not. Either way, I'd rather deal with you in person so I won't get into much detail about it here.
You KNOW that I have enough to deal with as it is without having to deal with you too. Completely contrary to what I believed, I am not your friend but only a friend of a friend. Insult to injury. Which is fine because, hey, what the hell did I expect? I thought actions spoke louder than words, I thought you would get it without me needing to say it. There's nothing else I could have done short of telling you, or even asking you, straight out. But let's face it: how much more retarded would I have seemed then? Furthermore, who are you to say anything at all when you don't know the half of it? But I knew where you stood and I should have known better than to expect you to say nothing at all; to think that even if you did have something to say that you'd tell me straight up, because that just how you are (or so I thought) instead of having to find out otherwise. Silly me.

On another note, today's horoscope:

January 24th, 2005
The general atmosphere may seem a bit too slow for you today, dear Sagittarius. Try not to get bogged down in the details. Also, try not to worry too much. If you can't pretend everything is okay, distract yourself from what's wrong. Time will help you turn things around in your favor. It will be up to you to pull things together and make everything perfect. You don't need any more information. You just need to make a decision.

To avoid explaining this to people individually...

My Internet is due to be cut off any day now (supposedly yesterday morning. As to why I have it now, I've no clue but I'm not complaining). I'm also due for a new computer soon. But until the new computer arrives, I won't be online--unless I'm at school and I bother waiting for a computer which, believe me, often isn't worth the wait. So...until some undetermined time...

The following are not so much complaints as it is me simply being realistic, and at the end of my rope, on my very last nerve. Not that I really owe anyone an explanation. My thoughts, my blogs. If you don't want to read it, you don't have to...right? It's obvious to ME that this doesn't really need to be said. However, after a few comments I received after my New Year's Eve blog, I was reminded that there are different understandings about what I've said; that people will take it upon themselves to fix something(s) that I neither asked to be fixed or that doesn't need fixing. Furthermore, how exactly does one fix something they know absolutely NOTHING about? How do you intend to save me if you don't even know what it is I need to be saved from? I understand that you're all just trying to help but you have to understand that you're seeing me in situations that has only been presented from one point of view, and probably a very emotional point of view at that. There is perception and then there is reality. Normally, I would filter this entry however I'm aware that I shouldn't HAVE to hide anything. This is MY journal and while I am aware that it is very public, it IS the forum in which I choose to vent. That being said, I obviously don't share Everything on here, and I do that for a reason. Don't try to fill in the blanks on your own. If I wanted you to know, I would have told you. Otherwise, you're simply making assumptions and you're, more likely than not, making really stupid ones. Just don't.

I. don't. know. I don't have the answers, and whatever little I do know, I don't know with complete certainty. Nor am I in any position whatsoever to say anything. So STOP asking me. While things weren't perfect, or even great, they were never this complicated. I was better off just not knowing at all.

Three times in three years. Three times too many that I've been on this one-way road. While the first one was somewhat complicated (and just plain ugly), I have to say that the last two have been a little easier. It's frustrating to be on the 'convenient' end and exhausting to make an effort for two. I'll still be here, if you all want. But I can't try anymore, I have too much else to worry about to keep wondering where we stand.

Must warm up for shopping with the Impulse Queen. Later Days.

This was just too amusing to resist...

In the year 2005 I resolve to:

Become a slut.

Get your resolution here




Other randomly selected resolutions included getting deported, reading less, wrestling an alligator and getting all my belongings repossessed by the government. That is all.
