A simple post that turned into a thread

I really want to watch the force awakens again! 😨😨…in the movies!!! Any takers? 
I also want to watch all of the Star Wars movie again..but in order this time.
There’s just so much to learn from them.
Every film I watch, I watch with purpose and with my guard up. My guard is always up for hints, effects, great storylines. I take back with me so much good. I really want to be a filmmaker. I want to make short films that are filled with awesomeness.
Even the bad behaviours and bad influences that they try to inflict on us I take. I learn to not ever want any of that and to always look at the bright side and stick to my moral compass. We all need a moral compass. 
Just like life. There’s good and there’s bad. We always want to take the good of life and leave the bad. But there will be always be those who fall for the bad, out of desperation, immaturity or simply a lack of knowledge of who they really are. It takes real character, self control and maturity to not follow the bad crowd. It’s just so easy these days. 
I believe if we cover our eyes from the bad and pretend it isn’t there we could somehow be living a lie. Not necessarily a lie but we could fall for it easily indirectly if we are not aware. 
On the other hand people who are put in a box and kept from all “the bad” are pretty much safe because they’ll never know how bad this world can be. But how about the priests who dedicate their lives to God and the church. They can never get married, start a family or even go to certain places. They’re safe right? A good percentage of them end up molesting children as they confess their sins to them. I thought being in a box was safe right?!
Please don’t get me wrong. I’m not Anti-Christian sentiment or christianophobia. Yes those are real words. But the reason I used a priest as an example was because that’s what was on my mind right now. I don’t even have to get started on Islam. We all know just well what a brainwashed Muslim can do. I hope this balances it out. 
What I’m trying to say is maybe if the molester and the terrorist were living a life where they were exposed to all kinds of wonders in the world ( good and bad ) and saw the effects of the bad wonders and what it led to. They’d be more likely to choose good, rather than just see what the box had to offer and nothing more. 
But what do I know.
All I know is I really wanna watch all of the Star Wars again, this time in blu ray! Then we can discuss about it in depth!

Question part 3

We all thought that Haddaway solved the million dollar question. We were all shaking our heads to it after all.

What is love?
Baby don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me
No more

But no.

He only said it how he saw it. But that song was very popular not only because we saw Will ferell shaking his head to it but because it was good music that was super relatable. Love is pain right?

I asked someone very dear to me, what is love? They said you are love. As flattering as the answer was, I don’t think I’m completely pain. So what am I then? Am I pain, pleasure and a little bit of awkwardness thrown in the middle?

Some say that Love is indescribable and there have been amazing love stories out there and songs. We all know John Lennon when it comes to love. Ah yes! All you need is love la la la la …All you need is love, love, love love is all you need. This is the same guy who beat both of his wives, abandoned one of his children, verbally abused his gay Jewish manager with homophobic and anti-semitic slurs, and once had a camera crew film him lying naked in his bed for an entire day. There you go ladies and gentlemen John Lennon has defined love for us.

All you need is Love is just too easy because Love wont put food on the table, love won’t helps us stay committed. Saying all we need is love is pure lazy. I’m getting off topic here. We still don’t know what love is.

Is it Romeo and Juliet where if my wife happens to poison herself I follow. Or is it Gandi’s love for his country that made him starve himself till they all listened to him. Some even go as far to say that Love is a choice and we have a say in whether we fall in love or not. Contrary to popular belief where you don’t choose who you fall in love with.

So what the heck is going on here and who do we listen to? It all seems to extreme but our society idealizes love and the problem with idealizing love is that it causes us to develop unrealistic expectations about what love actually is and what it can do for us. These unrealistic expectations then sabotage the very relationships we hold dear in the first place.

It’s a very very hard question where many great people have taken the liberty of answering this question where we all supposedly know what it is.

There is no one answer for what is Love. This question like my other questions here and here is very subjective. Love comes in all forms, shapes and sizes too. There’s that popular but shaped heart, and then theres the real heart that looks pretty messed up. It comes with pipes around it and stuff. Nasty stuff. But there’s a lot of love in there to give.

Love meaning care. Meaning understanding at the hardest of times. Meaning let downs and forgiving. Love is responsibility. Love can be blindsided by lust, fame, money and other interests that come in handy for each individual.

What is love to you ?

Why it pays off to sometimes be an A$&Ho%E

I come to class late and enter the class in fear that I didn’t secure my spot away from the guy who bullies me. It’s too late, I’ll have to sit next to him and be humiliated for 45 minutes. During the next class it’s time to move to another room, I run there quickly intentionally chose the seat next to him. We all stand up to greet the teacher and as we sit down I move his chair back so he falls and we all laugh. I look at him with a smile that translates “How you like me now?”. I bought rings over the weekend, my parents weren’t pleased, especially my father but little did he know that I was gonna leave a mark on someone who has been as ASSHOLE/Bully to me for a long period of time. During break he looks for me and I know he’s looking for me, so he comes over and shoves me, I expected worse. I aim directly at his head making sure the rings make a nice skull voice. We all got parted and I wasn’t bullied by him ever again. I was 16.

Later on in life, ended up getting a job while in university and had a good start with the boss. The thing is I wasn’t getting paid and it’s been 3 months with no salary. I ave gained the boss’s trust by then so ended up using it against him and told him that if I don’t get paid I’ll tell them exactly what you do here ( basically nothing ) and how you use the branch as your own personal game room. I got paid and then was told that they no longer needed a temp. At least I got paid.

You see sometimes in order to be taken serious you have to be an Asshole. To be heard you sometimes have to be distasteful or else nothing will be done.Countries have been freed, abusive husbands and wives, Mps, horrible bosses have been brought to justice because of assholes. Here’s why! Because the opponents are just bigger asshole. So we sometimes have to suck it up and be smaller assholes.

Generally, I don’t pay much attention to people who get aggravated with my opinions and such. Social media has been, is and will always be 100 percent optional and opt-in. If you don’t care for someone’s content or perspective, you can unfollow. And despite what your instincts tell you, doing so is not bad, wrong or negative.

Keep in mind that I don’t typically espouse my opinions as if I’m right and everyone else is wrong. I have some decorum and tact about how I voice things. In fact, I am attracted to intelligent discourse on any subject, am happy to admit when I’m wrong and am generally fair and polite.

But I still get under people’s skin sometimes.

Being an asshole person can increase your salary. It can get you more promotions and material possessions. By not caring about the effect we are having on anyone or anything outside of ourselves, we have the ability to trample over others and use any tactics necessary to get what we want. When asked by some why do I have to be an asshole, and the simple answer is: ” At some point, someone has to be one, and it might as well be you”

Now why do I use such a vulgar term? In today’s world, many words have many different meanings and apart from anus, asshole also means douchebag, reprehensible, hateful, unspeakable and mean. So modern word asshole means ” an irritating person” .

Stay tuned for “Why it pays off to be a good person” 🙂

P.s I’m a very nice person in general. Not that I care what you think. Just saying

The people in our lives

The older I grow ( and put in mind I’m in my mid twenties now, but if you are reading this in 2030, then I’m older and this post will sound wiser ) the more I realize how temporarily most things are, especially the people in our lives.

As an expat here, I mainly mingled with locals at first but  as I became an instructor at an international language center I have come to know many amazing people who have touched my life in many positive and a few negative ways ( the negative ones are great life lessons).

Being an expat and working with expats has left me with so much disappointment up till now cause of us leaving and traveling back home or just traveling but that has taught me so much and because of that I’m more compassionate now.

People are just in and out my life, like it’s a doormat for God’s sake. Students I like, colleagues I like, people who wash my car and cut my hair. What is this life? But again, I have embraced that now and come to terms that we are not here to stay. Not for our families, friends and not to this dear and horrific world. ( Read my post on death here) .

I now try as much as I can to positively leave a good mark on the people I meet and to be some sort of inspiration and impact them in a positive way. After losing a few good people to life ( not death ) I now know that time is even more scarce than I’ve realized. I wanna be like a positive beam of ray to the people I encounter and I want to be remembered in a positive way.

I do have haters, and I know it, and they’ve exposed themselves but that’s great, and I have embraced them as well. I’m very controversial and I invite debates most of the time, so that’s alright, if I’m hated for that then I’ll live and probably have a goodnight’s sleep as well.

Be a beam of positivity and sunshine to all those you meet. Keep an open mind, praise when needed, hug more often, smile 24/7 and turn that facial expression into a contagious sick smile that everywhere you go, you leave as if it’s a joker’s asylum.
