goin' a little overboard

random thoughts about prejudice and biases, because it came up in a forum discussion i was reading and because i'm not in a mood to write up a boring essay about this (besides, i don't normally write serious stuff unless i'm stressed, depressed or extremely hyped up... or unless it's really required).

racism: well, i doubt there's any country out there who does not have any racist citizens. no, i take that back. there isn't anyone who is not the tiniest bit racist towards one race or another. this is further elaborated in the avenue q song, "everyone's a little bit racist".

prejudice & bias: is not good. i will admit up to that much, but i don't condemn people who are like this (because if i did, i'd be against the entire human population including myself). but i hate those people who are overly biased and prejudiced to the extent that they refuse to see the other side's point of view.


i had one of those long conversations with my parents again about... eh, many things. my mother asked me why i don't speak in english at school when english is the language i've grown up using in daily conversations . my father kept quiet (it seems he can tell why). i also wonder why. i find it hard to do so... but i honestly think it would make my life a hell lot easier if i spoke in english. *okay, you can kill me if you want* i guess a nice balance between english and filipino is nice as well.

this led to me talking about something a classmate jokingly told me which really PISSED me last year. nobody knows this, of course. (or maybe i have blabbered it to someone and forgot. idk.) i'm not really particular about anything to be that pissed, except for my english. to be told by someone that my paper didn't have much grammatical and spelling-related errors because i was lucky enough to have used the SPELL & GRAMMAR CHECK feature in word is what i consider one of the biggest insults i could ever receive about my english. online, i don't give a damn if i make errors (okay, maybe i do. just not that much.), and i don't mind being corrected about my errors as long as it's said nicely (i would even be happy because that would save me from the embarrassment it brings me.), but when it comes to papers and stuff like those, i make sure that my english is 100% grammatically correct as much as possible. and i do not f*ck*ng ever depend on useless spell check whatevers, or much less use them, (i have proven the word spell & grammar check useless many, many times) to correct my paper. ('whatevers'. hahaha.) i am pretty capable of checking my paper on my own, thank you very much! only english and a few other things can bring out my anal retentive side.

it still pisses me until now.

ah, i got carried away. ~_~;; it wasn't supposed to end up like this. i meant for this to be a really short entry. crap. anyway, i just had to get that out.


what i really want to do now... make an analysis about "last friends"! i like how it realistically portrays some major issues in society. hmm, perhaps when i finally get subtitles for episode 4. (reading the preview in the official website gave me a headache, and i could only understand what they say 40% of the time. >_<;;)

When it comes to decorate bathroom cabinets there are specific features you need to maintain in mind. Just decorating with beautiful tiles and some attractive accessories isn't enough. You could come up with plenty of accessories to embellish your property. But, what is crucial here is your bathroom should be extra utilitarian than decorative.



Furniture for that breakfast nook is composed of a table and a few kind of seating arrangement. Most people today today try to choose a table that matches the shape of their breakfast nook. As an example, a round table in an octagon shaped space or a rectangular table in the breakfast nook that's an extension with the kitchens. Truly ought to you possess a larger family members and want more seating, then breakfast nook benches are a far far better selection than chairs. However, your company might be much more comfy inside a chair of their own as opposed to cozying up to a stranger. For that reason, a mixture of benches and chairs functions biggest in the kitchen.

At the same time high price tagged tiles comes with super quality shine and texture. But, whenever you are purchasing bathroom tiles at sale price or discount be certain you are buying the proper and high quality product. Frequently a discarded bathroom units that has lost its validity is sold at cheaper price. So, be conscious of such salesman and product and purchase only after satisfactory speculations.


In the past few many years stainless metal has prove to become a well-liked selection. In the previous it was hardly ever observed anywhere other than skilled kitchen sale, but now it's readily available for the home. It seems superb, and within the brushed finish tends not to present grime, and is easy to clean.
