I know there’s the saying “pick your battles wisely” but do I really have to? If I know something is wrong, objectively wrong, shouldn’t I say something?
I don’t see discussion with the possibility of controversy as conflict. Why are people afraid to say what’s on their mind? Why are dissenting opinions stigmatized?
I realize that we live in ever-developing times.
I understand that there’s all sorts of people, views, conditions, thoughts and that in attempt to ‘evolve’ most people try to be sensitive to these differing perspectives.
But I hate when we become over-sensitive to people different from us, when preferential treatment or over-consideration is given to people solely for the purpose that they’re different.
It’s important to be cognizant of diversity, to respect diverse groups of people and be considerate to those groups.
But never should we overcompensate with our sensitivities. We should also be able to objectively view something or someone for what it is, based on merit. We should always question, we should always think critically, we should always be discerning with the rhetoric we use.
Blindly being ‘open-minded’ and siding with whatever is different, just based on the fact that it’s different and you want to appear ‘cultured’ does not make you either of these things.
This all applies to so much in my life right now.
I just had a very, very sad thought. The two brothers accountable for the Boston Bomings will have more sway, more influence on society than my words ever will. Violence trumps constructivism. And it’s sad because I feel like I have so much to say that will ultimately go unheard.
I gotta go the fuck to bed.
Now is not the time to be listening to sad music.
I wish there was some way to use your phone to text somebody but instead of typing stuff you would say it out loud into the phone or something and the other person could hear you and they would just talk out loud back to you.
you mean a phone call

ohmygod someone actually did it
“Surprise!” everyone cried out as the lights turned out, jumping out from their hiding places.
“Oh, oh what is happening?” IE looked around, startled.
“Congrats on IE10,” Mozilla said as he walked up to her, offering a slice of cake to her.
“Me?” She said, unable to stop the blush crossing her cheeks. She didn’t think that anyone would be that excited at her new platform, let alone excited enough to throw her a party.
“Who put this all together?” she asked as she took the slice of cake. She tried her best no to notice that their fingers brushed.
“I did,” Mozilla replied with a smile as he ran a hand through his red-orange hair.
IE couldn’t help but turn her blue eyes to him. “You did this for me, Moz?”
Mozilla smiled and rubbed the back of his neck. “Yeah, well, you deserve it.”
“JUST KISS HER ALREADY!” Chrome called from across the room, Safari snickering next to him.
No one noticed Netscape sulk out of the room. They all were making a big deal at her new update. He didn’t need a new update to know that IE was already great.
