I've decided to begin writing once again. Funny, if you go back to my old entries from 2009, they all say the same thing. Hopefully this time, unlike my diet, I will stick to it and try to write as much as I can. I like to write most of the time. Written thought it intriguing, especially if it's written just as it's thought. Being let into anyone's mind as they think it a gift I think. They're allowing you to enter their world and that is something that should never be taken for granted.
It's October 31st. A couple of decades ago the darkest wizard in the world took the lives of Lily and James Potter. It's also the day that people back in the days of yore would dress up in frightening costumes in hopes of scaring the bodiless souls that still haunted the earth. Isn't it crazy how Halloween began trying to scare the scarers and nowadays, it's all about who looks the hottest in a leotard? Welcome to America, I guess.
I don't dress up for Halloween anymore. I think the last time I dressed up I wore scrubs and a witch hat and claimed myself a witchdoctor. Clever, huh? ;) No one understood my outfit but I found it to be quite witty indeed.
Anyway. It's 11:38AM and I'm waiting outside of my Theories of Personality classroom. I haven't been here in a week and a half and I'm hoping the professor doesn't notice my random appearance in the class. Although she always looks in my general direction, I feel like it's me she's glaring at when she speaks of the theories deceased psychologists came up with since they had no internet and couldn't stare at pictures of cats all day like this generation does.
We are the worst generation I think. In my opinion. Those before us came up with concepts, with innovating technology, wonderful music and actual drive and motivation to do something great and change the world for the better! And then, there are us, who sit on our asses all day and blog and blog and blog pictures of cats and drawn cartoons showing emotions because we're too afraid to write out what we feel so we let a .jpg file do the talking for us. Oh, I'm sorry, I meant .jpg OR .gif. Silly me.
I think we're this pathetic because that's exactly what they wanted us to be. They wanted us to be so preoccupied with technology that while we think we're living our own lives, Big Brother is actually out there controlling every single aspect of it without us even knowing it. They're telling us what to like, what to use, how to live, who to love and constantly showing us that what we should look like in order to be happy. They give us selected music and television shows that will rot our brains in order to take easier control over it, and the worst part is we let them. We LET them take our individuality because we need to be cool and do what they say in order to be accepted in society.
It might just be the most disgusting or greatest thing to be achieved by mankind since Hitler's Nazi Germany. He convinced people just like Big Brother convinces us, but I think Big Brother does it even better because they're a lot more subtle than Hitler was. They're not out there making speeches and forming cults. There inputting it subliminally in all the things we love and the best part is, we don't even fucking know it.
How crazy is that?
