I don’t know. I was reading a Charlie Brooker article today, and he raises quite a good point. The problem with this website, is that it builds up a hope for romance. Whether it is reblogged pictures of a guy asking a girl out through the medium of arranging his balls to spell the words, ‘I will always love you’ or a picture of a girl hopelessly staring into space, and a cheesy quote from some unknown source underneath. It seems to me to be a complete load of bullshit. If I sound annoyed, it is because I am. I’m tired of all this lovey dovey shit. The fact is that the majority of you, if you got into a relationship with someone who did half the shit you post on here, you’ll dump him within two weeks for being needy or pathetic, and you’ll want a ‘real man’. If you had a ‘real man’, you’ll complain he treats you like shit, dump him and claim you want someone who ‘understands’ or ‘treats you right’ (the aforementioned man by the way).
The problem with romance, as Charlie puts it, is two-fold.
One of the pair falls hopelessly in love with the other, untill this obsession sends the other down the police station taking out a restraining order on fucking Romeo.
By some act of God, you both fall nauseatingly for each other, in equal doses. You stay together for several years until the tiniest things escalate to levels of which you dump your partner for trivial things like eating bogies. (Interesting anecdote, but I’m keeping it)
The whole system of it seems completely bewildering to me, but alas, as everyone always says.
‘You don’t understand, because you haven’t been in love’
Well, on that evidence, I am fucking happy about that.
My media teacher gave me a massive poster of Biffy Clyro today. I was all excited, and planning which pictures to move to make room for it. I got into work and was like “hmm, I’m sure I had more than this”.
i’ve had to say goodbye to a few good friends lately. all because of uni. i know i’ll see them again, but it’s still going to be for a long time. and things won’t be the same without them all here. i wish them all the best of luck though. :)
I don’t really have much detail. I didn’t really sleep at all Saturday night and I haven’t recovered yet, so I’ve been tired all week. It’s horrible. But I’ve pretty much just been doing college, work and shit like that. That is all :)
