Tom Gabel (now Laura Grace) and Against Me! influenced me so much throughout my life. No other band comes close. None. Now that she’s come out as Laura my respect of her has never been higher. Can’t fucking wait to see how Laura would lead Against Me!
Selamat Hari Buruh!
So, remember my last original post? I’m pretty sure you don’t. CAUSE IT WAS FUCKING WRITTEN 3 FUCKING MONTHS AGO! It just goes to show how much I care about fulfilling my goals this year. Actually, I hope it doesn’t show how much I care about fulfilling my goals this year because that would just be depressing. The thing about writing online is it all seems a bit pointless to me. I don’t know, I could just be lazy, as usual. I mean there are times where I actually come up with ideas of what to write in this “blog” of mine but I almost never (obviously) go through with it. Thing is though, I have somewhat increased my writing, but just private ones, on my journal. For some reason I’ve never really seen the point of “blogging”. I guess that just comes down to the fact that I feel I don’t have an audience. Actually not that I really want to, I’d just be more shit scared to write honestly. Frankly, I do get scared of expressing myself sincerely in this “blog” sometimes due to barriers that my mind constructs, largely the fear of what other people think and the embarrassing cringe inducing stuff I’ll write which I’ll soon come to regret.That fear would also force me to censor out some of my thoughts, and self censorship f*cking s*cks(lol get it). But hey, that’s the point of writing online am I right?
Then again, who am I kidding? I’m just another privileged kid who has a somewhat below decent grasp of English and romanticises the life of a writer. How original. I barely know enough about the ideas I come up with to write about them, or there’s at least another 1000 people around the globe who can arrange my thoughts coherently, I mean come on, unless I aspire to be a fiction writer, every other thought I come up with would probably have been thought of by someone else. So why waste the time? Yes, I am young and I do delude myself that some of my thoughts could be unique and be useful enough to the discourse of certain things in the nation but I’m a realist enough to realise its not. So what’s the point?
But now that I’ve written all of that and before I’ll click on the “Create post” tab, I’ve come to realise it’s a pretty great/daunting feeling knowing someone could be reading all(doubt it). And it feels really refreshing. So I’ll try and continue to write on this blog whenever I can be arsed. Sorry (if you made it this far) for reading the past 2 paragraphs only to come to a pretty shitty conclusion.Tu la siapa suruh bazir masa baca blog aku, baik kau baca buku.
I’ve never really had much original content on my tumblr,so I decided that since I’ve always wanted to improve my writing, one of my new year’s resolutions is that I should write more on my tumblr/publicly.
Here’s to anyone who cares.Here’s for 2012.
Happy New Year everyone.
“Being a leftist is a calling, not a career; it’s a vocation, not a profession. It means you are concerned about structural violence, you are concerned about exploitation at the work place, you are concerned about institutionalized contempt against gay brothers and lesbian sisters, hatred against peoples of color, and the subordination of women. It means that you are willing to fight against, and to try to understand the sources of social misery at the structural and institutional levels, as well as at the existential and personal levels. That’s what it means to be a leftist; that’s why we choose to be certain kinds of human beings.”
