I haven’t updated in a few days. It’s been very busy!
First, I got my Masters degree. It’s weird to think that, “Hey I’m done.” I’ve loved my time there and it is a huge part of who I am. What’s next? I don’t know. Hopefully a job in theatre? I’ve already built up my reading list, as I want to keep studying even though I’m no longer in an academic setting.
Then, I sang the National Anthem at a derby bout. It went better than I had expected. I got many compliments and it was the first time anyone in the league had heard me sing. I have to admit, it made me miss performing, a lot. It’s been a year since I’ve been on stage. It’s been a year since I’ve performed in anything. I miss it. But anyway, I also chopped off my hair. I think the look works…? Maybe? My goal dress also fits! It’s taken me a year to get into that thing, so that was a big accomplishment on its own.
Today, I woke up with a migraine. I was supposed to go to Disneyland, but with the migraine, I was just not up to it. It is a big deal for me to not be up for Disneyland. But alas, I took the day to just relax and work on photos and catch up on my reading.
As a part of my day off, I browsed Facebook and found a link to an article about the Tennessee bill. It contained a humorous video by one of my favorites, George Takei.
As I watched the video, I thought about the whole, “That’s so gay” slang. It has always bugged me. And when people use the word fag or worse to insult someone, even as a joke, is offensive to me and to those that I love. Plus, most people who use those words…well…how shall I elaborate without ticking someone off…have you seen what kind of people they are? They don’t usually refrain from using the N word either. They are most common to be trailer trash, douchebags, sluts, not have their lives together, losers…I can go on. Whatever happened to just live and let live? Accepting people for who they are? What if someone said, “Oh that is so Nicole”…ugh…I don’t know. It’s like these people can’t figure out another word to use. And usually these people are not only stupid (yeah I said it) but they lack any knowledge of common sense, they are immature, lowest of the low in their job which is usually a fast food restaurant or a trashy retail establishment and have no respect for other people.
I only wish I could respond to them in the same way that George Takei does. But all that I have is my little blog with less than a dozen views a day with barely any comments. Although I’ve probably written something that the trolls will thrive to respond to…and I look forward to reading the comments, if there are any.
