My choices: December

I forgot to mention last time. I'm only choosing songs that support what is say, no eminen going on about he abused his lover.
I'm a bit disappointed to say that i haven't had anybody contact me and send me quotes or songs...
My song of the month:
Beautiful by christina aguilera.

My qoute of the month:

If evil be said of thee, and if it be true, correct thyself; if it be a lie, laugh at it.
Epictetus 

I don't ask for much, but to remember life's advice, and to listen to the world around you... Anything can happen, it's the things we miss that ou will regret. And with that, I leave you to think

Remember...

Remembrance day is tomorrow, yes, I am Canadian, and we are to have a moment of silence at 11:00... This moment only lasts one minute, then I had a thought. "What about the children? The ones who die because of bullying?"  So I've decided that I will stay silent for one hour for those soldiers, and the children... I would very much enjoy it if you all would join me. Afterwards you can all email me with your reactions to staying silent so long. Thank you for remembering...

Halloween: yet another time for the weird

Hurray! It is Halloween this month! A time where the ping are adorable, the elders buy A LOT of sweets, and everyone can be as weird as possible without being judged! I always loved Halloween as a kid, and I still do! I can dress up, be weird, and get FREE candy!!! So I'm not going to try to make you feel guilty, this is a speech of being proud of who you are and what you do. Especially those weird, and bullied, and self conscious! You guys will probably go farther in life than those who turn away from the things they love! So Happy Halloween!!

Hachi: the tale of a dog

I have watched the safest movie in the world , and lived. It's about a dog who is found as a puppy by someone,(who's name has slipped my mind), and has a chinese letter on his collar. The number was 8, or, hachi. I don't wan' to ruin a lot. So here is what I will tell you. The owner dies, and Hachi waits for him to come home for nine years for him to come home... But he never does. At the end, let's just stay they do reunite... It got me to think about our modern society. With the wars, the hate, and bullying. That strong type of loyalty is near impossible to find. It needs to stop... That's why I do what I'm doing. Thanks to all who support my blog, or even have even looked at it.

Dwarfism...

One of my best friends has dwarfism. She is so nice, and pretty, and funny! Except, she gets bullied a lot... I asked her to send me a link to a video she made explaining herself. She did, so I will put the link in here, but first I should warn you that there is a glitch. The screen will stop moving, but you can still hear talking, so don't skip over it! Anyways, here's the link to her video.Storm Russ-Dwarfism.

the beauty myth

what is the beauty myth? well, it's what society tells us is beauty compared to what we think. I talked to 6 people, 3 adults, and 3 teens.I asked them what their definition of beauty is. Adult number 1 said," what makes me smile." Adult number 2 said,"it's whats within." Adult number 3 said." beauty is within the eye of the beholder." I am including my own definition for the 3 teens, so my definition is," Beauty is wearing things within your comfort zone and being confident when wearing them." wordy, yes, but that's my definition. Teen number 2 said," It's what you think it is." Teen number 3 said, "What makes people feel happy." None of these say, "A girl with a thin, sexy body," or, "A guy with a six pack and muscular arms." NO! Beauty is not having big boobs and a small butt, or having abs and muscles. It's not about wearing the right clothes or looking like models. It's about being comfortable with who you are. That's true beauty...

bullying is more than a school problem

what people don't know, is bullying is a bigger problem than  they take it for. People don't realize that, todays kids, could be tomorrows criminals. What if the next president was bullied? If it was bad enough, they might do something cruel towards another country. That could start, yet, another war! Medieval times. The social classes consist of the king, the nobles, the lesser knights, and the serfs/ peasants. The peasants were considered to be at the bottom of the social classes. Even before bullying was invented, it was around!! Christianity. When it came into the world, they put up lie after lie about anyone that wasn't Christian!! People were burned and killed for being part of a different religion, mostly women and children!! Do you really want this to happen again! I don't think so!
Apparently, if there was a giant solar flare that came in our direction, it could knock out our electricity on the entire planet for months, maybe years!! The whole world would be in chaos! Friends against friends, family against family, cannibalism could become the most well known path of survival!! There's that, or, we could have peace, and instead of chaos, we could help each other thrive. Bullying may not seem like a big problem, but if we can stoop bullying, we can solve world hunger and stop wars! So, yea, it is a big deal! Help stop it, whether you're old or young, you can help!

Hitler, the over looked truth...


I know this isn't the best subject, but I need to do what I can to prove a point or the problem will never be solved! Okay, so everyone knows who Hitler is. Bad dude! In case you have been living under a rock though,(or under the pressure of running a business or family), Hitler tried to kill everyone who was Jewish, therefore ridding the world of Judaism. Fortunately, he failed, but millions still died! What people don't know, or overlook, is his past. Hitler probably wouldn't have tried it if he wasn't teased and picked on as a child... That's right! Hitler was bullied! Now most people just think, "okay so Hitler was a bullied child... no big deal." And yet it's a big deal if someone is bullied into suicide? What you're pretty much saying is that it isn't a big deal that it helped drive him to kill millions of people in the world because they belonged to certain religion... yea yea, i know. "That's not it at all! I-" didn't think about it? I know... To me, that means you either 1) don't have an imagination or are too busy too wonder interesting thoughts. or 2) Don't care enough to put the pieces together... Have I turned your world upside down yet? Did I make your head spin? If not, I should have at least made you think... What happens if the next kid won't kill himself? will he talk and make it better? Or will he take it out on the wrong type of people?  How many more will die!!! Think! put the gears in your head to work, and think! What will you do now...?

The Other Side

Now, this post is for those of you who haven't really been picked on, who need motivation, or just plain care. If you haven't been bullied or bullied others, then it's time to know what it's like on the other side... first of all, I have been bullied all my life so I know what it's like. In preschool, I had no friends, I was alone because no one liked me. Apparantly I was too weird... Kindergarten, i got one friend... a dwarf friend, no one else liked her so I asked if I could play with her and we've been friends ever since. Now, throughout elementary, I was always picked on. Do you know what it feels like to be the target of everyones amusement? It wasn't fun. By 3rd grade, I learned to keep my emotions under control and to bottle up my sadness...  I became tough and not very social. sure i made more friends, but not ones that lasted. By grade 6, I thought everything would be different. I was right, but wrong at the same time. The bullying only got more harsh, but less frequent. Why? I had a boyfriend who wrestled and did push ups for fun. Except he was in another class so thats when they picked on me. By grade 7, it was over and the bullying became extreme. Having been bullied for nine years, i barely ever cried, but i came home crying pretty often that year. It was like each day, I died a little inside! It wasn't fun... At some points, I thought about stuff like stealing, or trying alcoholic drinks. Don't worry, they were just momentary elapses, I didn't actually do anything like that... Now is grade 8. I have realized throughout the year, i am a lucky girl. I discovered my own definition of beauty, and I am as confident as ever... Don't bully others, and if you do... think of the other side of the story.

why make this?

Well, one night I was just lying in bed trying to fall asleep when, BAM! It hit me, why not make a blog just to deal with proiblems that are underestimated, or, not know, or overlooked? so I'm doing just that! I really do hope everyone at least takes a look at this and see's how big the small things actually are...
