Anyone who has been in contact with me today will know I am a bit out of it… Why??? LOOOOOONG story! But do not fret that will come up.
But firstly, Day 13!!
List SIX things you never want to or can’t live without….
I hope you can read all of that…
Now it is time for Magic Monday… This is wishes I feel like needing right now…
- I wish…. My heart was made of stone or at least a few bricks
- I wish…. Friends would never hurt you!
- I wish…. For men to realize the powers the have over a girl’s heart!
- I wish…. Every one knew the powers a friendly smile and some support could do to you
- I wish…. Them happiness, but not if it causes me misery!
- I wish…. She would realize I actually am her friend!
- I wish…. He would know how much it hurt me…
- I wish…. To quickly bounce back from sadness!
Yeah…. I take it for granted that most of you realized by now that I got hurt BAD by the Infatuation… And some one else! But I don’t want to elaborate… But if you really want to know e-mail or Facebook me…
Thank you all for being here, being true and not being backstabbers!!
I truly love my blog family!! [Layla you too!]
I contemplated a while on if I should do this post or not, and finally I decided to do it.
We all know I like Justin Bieber’s music. Perhaps I’ll even go so far as to say he is a good performer. But the guy himself… Sorry but I can’t stand him!
When I see him on TV, he usually say something arrogant, he flips his hair and he acts as if the whole world should fall at his feet!
I don’t want to seem like just another girl/person hating on him, and I am not… I like his music. Even his voice doesn’t annoy my! I have respect for him [he is famous indeed] but do he really have to be arrogant about it all?
The worst it the self-proclaimed ‘Bieber-fever’… How obnoxious?? Really! And now all over South Africa girls ranging from 8 to 20 is running around ‘Bieber-hunting’… What the hell?
I’ll admit, he is indeed some one to hunt, whether to hate or to rate, but do it have to be such an issue? A few months ago the Soccer World Cup was held here, did any one go Ronaldo-hunting? Or Beckham-searching?? No! And if they did, then no one made that big of a deal about it!!
Sure, maybe he deserves to be arrogant and obnoxious, but it is really starting to annoy me that he thinks the whole world revolves around him! If I could go a day without having to hear a silly comment from him it would be a day well spent!
I know I have him on Twitter, but then again I also have Ryan Seacrest, the Kardashians and a lot of other famous people, I like Hollywood. Point. I know I don’t actually KNOW Justin Bieber, which make this post actually a moot point. But I had to do it!!!
Well… That’s all!
Every one that knows ME, knows I adore vampires… I have ever since I started reading and WAY before the Twilight-hype.
But ever since the whole T-hype I started questioning my sanity. I mean THEY SPARKLE!! ???
The first time I read Twilight, it was just after a break-up, a year before the hype. My friend borrowed me the book, thinking it would help me get over my heartache. And it did. I fell in love with it. I loved the idea of a guy caring that much and I read over the bad grammar and BAAAAAD ideas. Then the movie came out. I kinda liked it, but ever so suddenly the whole world liked it, because ‘Edward is like so totally hot’ HUH?
I didn’t understand, a year ago no one KNEW Twilight, now everyone is reading it. First I thought ‘hey at least they are reading’…
Then my sister brought me the book and I read it again. Open-minded and a little less sad than the first time, and I noticed how badly it’s written. I came across faults editors should’ve picked up [eg. Chagrin=it means annoyance. In Twilight it is used 7 different times, for different meanings] [Chapter 12]
But going on… I realized I didn’t LIKE it anymore. Sure, the story is good, the idea is workable, but I hated the sparkliness. [I read Anne Rice as my first Vamp book=my vamp ‘bible’] and Twilight dissed all ‘known’ vampire facts…
So out of interest I read the rest of the series [I cannot leave a series of books unfinished] and I found more and more faults… In book 4, it was in Jacob’s half, and suddenly there are about three pages from Bella’s side! And I have a LOT of issues about her plot… But I am not a critic or anything noticeable, thus I will keep those ravings for myself! Book 2 and 3 was very good to me; still there was a bad writing scheme, bad grammar etc. But at least Edward was missing right? Wrong. She finds a way to get him in there, ‘talking’ to Bella. He wants to kill himself for her after he thinks she is dead [such a good message to teens and pre-teens] and the ‘love story side’ is predictable. You can’t even hope she will fall for Jacob, because she isn’t that strong of a character to make that choice. She is destined to be with Edward ever since they ‘fell in love’ [in a few days!!]
But this weekend I succumbed and went to watch Eclipse. Now I have one very very very big weakness, Taylor Lautner…
I would go to Hollywood this second if I knew I stood a chance with him!! So I wanted to see him, a good enough reason for an 18-year old to go to a movie. And I hate to say this, but I enjoyed it a lot… I still can’t stand Edward, thought he only sparkles twice the whole movie… But for some reason he repulsed me. [I AM NOT TEAM ANYTHING BTW] I enjoyed him getting hit, I loved Jake standing up to him, and well I personally would love the end of the Twilight Saga if it means the end of Edward. But the other vampires I can handle…
I loved Alice since the first book as well as Emmet and Rosalie. They are all solid characters, they have back stories, they have ideas, and they have PERSONALITIES!! I sometimes think there was more thought put into the supporting characters than into the two ‘leads’. But even thought they are solid characters, there isn’t much time spend on them in the books. Although the movies make them AMAZING!!
So I made my decision! I can stand Twilight. But I won’t ever read the books again! I will watch the movies, I will enjoy looking at the wolves and I won’t feel guilty. Because even if Twilight makes a mess of vampires. A good story is a good story. And if you cut Stephenie Meyer out of the equation. It would have been WOW…
Well after careful [not really] consideration, I choose today’s topic. Mostly because I have a few things I really wanna rant about! Lemme first list them for you, so you decide if you still want to read…
5. Justin Bieber
2. Fake friends
1. The vampire ‘fad’
So….. Now that you know my objects, still want to read? Good, let’s continue!
5. Justin Bieber…
First off I want to honestly say that I do not have a problem with his music [or that he sings like a twelve year old girl] I have a problem with the fact that so many clueless little kids are falling over their feet for him! Don’t they know that he is just another normal person?! This is completely above my head to comprehend, how is it normal for tweens to suffer nervous breakdowns or causing a rampage?
What also bothers me is that he says he wants a ‘cougar’?!?! WHAT? Is it normal for a 16-year old to talk like this? Why is this not frowned upon, but laughed at?
Well actually this is based on the whole ‘saga’. The people who know me know my confused feelings on Twilight, I like the movies not the books, and I like the idea but not all of it. Well let me start at the beginning… Or rather more systemized! I enjoy the movies [and books] because it is a good STORY! The whole idea SM had was amazing, and if it was brought through beter, it would have been incredible. But then there are the problems… She really can’t write, vampires NEVER sparkle, and they BURN in the sun. Anything else is absurd unless there is a rational explanation [like Vampire Diaries’ rings]. The whole saga is taken a bit too far according to me; I reckon she could have stopped after the first, because there the story was already exhausted!!
Hmmmmmm, how many times can we rant about them before we used up our amount of freak out? I personally think men should be ranted about daily, because it helps us, and well it prevents us from killing them! Men are so… Conceited! They want you to like them, but when you do, they don’t. When you finally get over them, they go on and on about when you did like them. Do I make sense? No? Well, never mind that’s normal for me. But I mean, why must men always be on our minds? While I’m ranting, I am still thinking about men, and they are so happy with this ‘hold’ they have over us. I am now single for about 1 and a half months and honestly. I have never been happier. But still I think about men!! ARGH!!!!! Idiots….
Let’s try and be absolute girls, go for manicures and facials, go for GNO’s. ENJOY ourselves without them!!
2. Fake friends…
Wow… so much to say on this subject!!! I despise people who try to be people who they aren’t. Those only texting you when they want something. Those so obsessed with themselves that they don’t really listen when you talk; they only wait for an opening so that they can go on about their lives. This is absurd! Sure, I am also guilty of neglecting my friends, but I try my best not to, some days you just are TOO busy to faff over everyone. But I will always be there when someone needs me. I enjoy helping my friends; I enjoy making them feel beter and most off all I will never let a friend down!!
1. The Vampire Fad
Yes, vampire’s again…
This really annoys me [as you noticed]. Suddenly everyone LOVES vamp’s. They read every book, they watch every show, every movie everything! But why? Because it’s a trend! I read vampire novels before Twilight, I watched vampire stories before Twilight, but some of these people only do so because of Twilight and will stop once it is over. They don’t admire the myths, the beauty of ‘old’ vampires. The think they sparkle….
Sure there are WONDERFUL new vamp books:
- The Vampire Academy
- Vampire diaries.
But these books are wonderful because of one simple reason, with a few MINOR adjustments they stay true to the myths and legends!! If you want to read a true vamp book, try The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice…
I am not trying to diss anything, but I just feel that vampires [or any other fictional character] should be loved because they are true to form and really ‘understood’ not just because it’s some fad and everyone is reading or watching it!
Okay… that’s that from me!
