The first ever Threadless shirt I’ve ordered arrived. Owls, screws, and “fig. 22.” I.e. I was cosmologically obligated to own this shirt.
- Me: Okay, body. I couldn't help but notice that you've been pretty gassy this week. You need to be done with this phase by tomorrow night because that guy we really, REALLY like is coming over to watch a movie, and we don't need any of your shenanigans. Okay?
- Body: *toot*
- Me: Can I take that as a yes?
- Body: *toot*
- Me: This doesn't bode well for me, does it?
- Body: *toot*
Cutting off hair in ancient Asia (Japan, china, Korea & possibly some other Asian cultures) symbolizes being banished or rejected from their home. In the more modern age that is now, cutting long hair into a short cut means to forget the past, leaving the old and starting anew.
Cutting my hair off was a really empowering experience. So naturally I thought of this.
Just yesterday a Christian friend of mine, being fully aware that I am an atheist, tried to get me to listen to a 15 minute sermon because it would “help” me, and then afterwards, tried to get me to pray before taking an exam.
I agreed to pray with him, but on one condition: we both prayed to Allah.
He was stunned. He looked at me and said “You know full well I’m a Christian. It offends me that you’d even ask that. I am not a Muslim, I don’t believe in Allah, and I would NEVER pray to him.”
And I laughed. He asked me why it was so funny, and I explained that the indignation he felt was the same feeling I had when he asked me to pray to the Christian God. He feels uncomfortable and offended at the idea of praying to something he doesn’t believe in, and so do I.
That’s what I want people who try to “help” me by forcing me into religion to understand. Think about it. If you’re a Christian, try to pray to Allah. If you’re a Muslim, try and pray to Christ. If that sentence alone makes you feel uncomfortable and offended and weird, congratulations! That’s how I feel when you do the same thing to me.
I don’t hate religious people, and I try to be as respectful as I can to everyone. I just wish that I’d get the same respect back every once in awhile. It’s a good thing to have beliefs and values, but don’t get upset when not everyone has the same beliefs and values that you do.
There are certain things I don’t say in front of my residents, and “shart” is one of them.
Talks with the soul mate
- Griffin: Do you think he actually likes you?
- Me: Yeah..... merp.
- Griffin: Take that like the compliment it is.
- Me: I don't think he is attractive at all, which means its never going to happen.
- Griffin: Well, maybe if he didn't open his mouth. I mean if he didn't say anything...... See how those are different?
- ME DIED.
I have decided to nickname my legs “White Privilege” because they’re as pale as the moon and I don’t let just anyone see them.
