Adele

“I believe in trilogy” – Adele

I’m sad. I’m going to cry. She said her third album might be her last one. I absolutely love her and I would’ve hoped she would make multiple comebacks. But I will always love her, her music, and her voice.

People who have wordpress

I know three people who have wordpress. Its actually surprising because I thought people didn’t know what wordpress was. Turns out it’s actually pretty popular. Not sure though, one of my friends told me that. Anyways, I read their blogs because the link was on their instagram. Oh man. Their blog posts are beautiful. Their blog posts seem so meaningful and full of …art? It makes me jealous to be honest. I feel bad looking and reading some of mine. Well, to be fair, I’m just writing things to get off my chest and only write when I feel like it. (Actually, their blog seems effortlessly beautiful. I think they’re naturally good at writing.)

OTL

Well, but afterall, I have this blog for me. Not for someone else. And I’m not really trying to build an audience. At least I think I’m not? I have my the link to my blog on my Instagram because it looks good. lol. And easy access for myself actually. (Even though I get the wordpress app afterwards.)

Haha, it sort of feels nice to know other people have wordpress though. It inspires me. I actually feel like some of my other friends who don’t have wordpress should get it. I think they’ll be really good at it too. …and I would secretly end up being jealous of them as well… lol.

“Money Suit Social Experiment” By Coby Persin

Video by Coby Persin.

(Disclaimer, I do not own this video.)

Here is the link to his youtube channel!

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-DUrA-h7-s_C57ECJ1BFPA 

I found this on facebook because one of my friends liked it. (Yes, I know I should be doing my homework and or studying, but I just logged onto facebook without thinking…like always.) Now, before I say anything else, I just want to say, there might be people who may argue and say that there are other factors that would’ve effected this social experiment. True, very true. For instance, the people shown in this photo might have taken the money to pass it onto someone else. Or perhaps they took it because they actually needed it despite the fact that they look successful. OR Coby Persin, the youtuber who made this video could’ve just taken footage that he liked and put them together to make it seem like something even though it wasn’t.

Yes, there’s different factors that could have contributed to this social experiment.

However, I am willing to believe that this video made by Coby Persin is real as it is and honest as it is. (Come on, even though it’s the internet and you shouldn’t believe everything, I’m willing to trust this guy.)

Well, to get to the point, there’s people who take the money from him that was taped onto his suit. He was most definitely HOLDING A SIGN that said “Take What You Need”. There’s a few people who pass by him in the street and grab a fair bit of money. First of all, there’s people who take the money and DON’T EVEN SAY THANK YOU. I’m sorry but am I the only one who noticed that? And the first guy that’s shown says how it’s free isn’t it so why shouldn’t I take it? Sir, did you read the sign that he was holding? It said “Take What You Need”. And I am pretty furious with the lady who takes like ten bills for her “nail appointment.” Lady, I’m sorry you have to hear it from this 20-year old but you need to know the difference between NEED and WANT. Because I am pretty sure nail appointments don’t belong in the list of “NEEDS” section. Here, let me even teach you in french since I actually learned it recently. “Avoir besoin” is NEED and “Vouloir” is WANT. (They need to be conjugated though…) There’s also a person who takes the money but decides to put it back because he says he actually doesn’t need it.

The real reason I’m writing this blog is because of what I watched near the end. There’s a guy with his dog who takes two(?) bills. Coby asks him if he is sure and doesn’t want anymore for the the day after. The man says that he just wants to get some food for himself and his dog and Coby should give the rest of the money that’s left on his suit to other people. No joke, I cried. Someone who doesn’t seem to have much he needs (which wasn’t a lot) and has the heart to think about other people. Coby being the gentleman, he gives the man sixty dollars anyways just to make sure he and his dog doesn’t have to starve the next day. The video ends with a quote, “You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.”

I thought this video was very meaningful and it was a nice reminder to everyone out there.

But who knows, I might be a hypocrite since I might have taken money too if there was a man  with a bunch of bills taped to his suit, despite the fact what was written on his sign. I want to believe that I wouldn’t have done the same as those people who’s faces were blurred. I hope I know that by now. I mean, I already know that giving is better than receiving. And my father told me that he wants me to get a good job and become rich. Not so I can show off or live a very luxurious life, instead to give and help others who are less fortunate. I think I already live a luxurious life. Not because of the money or anything, (I’m in debt because of university, I’m broke. Haha) but because I’m already surrounded by people that I love and by people who care about me. I had to learn that the hard way. “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone” is a very cliche yet very very true quote.

I admire the man with his dog… And Coby of course.

Meghan Trainor

I was DEVASTATED when I found out I missed Meghan Trainor’s concert when she came to our city. Ugh. It was right about the time when I loved most of her…no, ALL her songs too. I still do like all her songs actually.
I’m crossing my fingers for her to come again because I really like her debut album songs, if not, I hope she releases her second album soon so she can have a tour again and this time, hopefully I wouldn’t have to miss it. ✋

“Heaven or Whatever” by Shane Koyczan

“To this day”, no matter how many times I hear it, I continue to shed tears. I heard “Heaven or Whatever” last time and it reminded me of someone… And I cried a river. I was listening to it again today. Surprise surprise, I cried just like…a little bit. I made sure I made no noise because my roommate was right next to my room. To my advantage, I didn’t shed that much tears. I believe it was because I had pink eye and my eyes were too dry. (Couldn’t produce water, wonderful.) I don’t think I can listen to Shane Koyczan’s poems by myself without being emotionally unstable. It’s so beautiful. And especially to the ones that I can relate to.

“Heaven or Whatever” is about his grandfather who believed that heaven meant something specific to every individual. And Shane tells us about what his heaven is like and mostly talks about his grandfather in this poem.

By far though, “To this day” and “Heaven or Whatever” are probably my favorite pieces. I wonder if I’ll have a chance to see him one day. I hope so.

After dentist

So I had cavities, (no surprise, was told my teeth were very weak and sensitive LONG time ago) and came back from the dentist a few minutes before sitting down and ordering food from Dairy Queen restaurant nearby.

The dentist and his assistant were both really friendly and funny. Always enjoy talking to people working at the dentist. As usual, asked about education and dental schools. Also tried to congratulate the dentist who was filling my teeth because he said he just had a child, thats why he likes taking Fridays off more than any other days. We laugh when I reacted and tried to say something when he mentioned his child. He understood, laughed and said thanks after I almost choked trying to congratulate him.

The assistant apparently finished 14 months of college at a different province and was working by the age of nineteen. So lucky. I’m so jealous. Not only jealous because of that but also because she knew what she wanted to do right after high school and was loving her job currently. Haha she’s so sweet too. She said she thinks its great that I’m thinking of going into Pharmacy. Great field.

I woke up late so I didnt get breakfast. Especially because right after two of one and a half hour lecture I had to catch the bus so I could get to the dentist on time set by the appointment. So now, I’m sitting here finishing my fries. (Burger, drink, fries and a sundae for $6! Yay for a broke student like me. Especially because I love ice cream…too much….haha) I had trouble eating my burger. Wasnt sure if I was getting sauce and food bits all over my mouth. (I think I was.) My lips on one side is still pretty numb so I can’t eat properly. Or at least doesn’t feel like I’m eating properly. And I burned my tongue yesterday from drinking soup at like 2am last night. Planning on finishing this, then get my ice cream and get out of here. Lol.

I still have to finish my English essay which I am not confident about because I love writing but I am terrible at it. (Well, you can probably tell from reading this cant you? Haha.) I do plan on making a new category for my essays and or research essays though. Write essays for fun? What? Haha. Yeah, I actually came to love writing essays. The only reason I dont really like writing essays for school is because I have to worry about getting them graded. I might not be good at writing them but I like it anyways. I dont care when people tell me when my writing is bad. I actually like it. (Lol) Because I like getting other peoples perspective and i can learn from it.
THE ONLY TIME I dont like people telling me my writing is bad is when they dont tell me or give me a reason WHY. Because if you dont tell me why, its like, “Are you TRYING to insult me?” Hahaha. I can learn WHY it was terrible and fix it and as I go from you’re perspective if you tell me. If not, I would just think you’re being biased or something. Thats why on English essays, I like professors/teachers who write all over them. If they just give me a letter grade without explanation and not a single scribble or any corrections, its just upsetting and I mumble how lazy they might be. Although I did come to understand that its not easy marking so many essays all at once CAN make your brain feel like jello because my first semester professor told us that while explanation about thesis to AVOID. Haha.

And last semester chemistry lab, after writing formal labs, I realized I kind of like writing research essays. (I think I would like writing research essays for biology a bit more though.) Since I did like writing those in grade eleven with the best chemistry teacher I could’ve asked for. Kind of sad that she retired and my sister doesnt get to have her. Although her science teacher she’ll have this semester is funny and pretty awesome too.

Okay, I should be finishing my essay instead of writing on my blog. Ganna get ice cream and head back. Bye.
