“Ideas are bulletproof!”

V for Vendetta is one of my favorite movies because it highlights the importance of freedom and life. It captures a lot of quotes worth considering everyday, and one of them is that “Ideas are bulletproof”.

Ideas are yours only. They can try to kill you, but your ideas remain with you and they can’t be destroyed. They exist and they will always exist. Weak people fear those with ideas and they think that if they destroy the innovatives, the issue will end. But that will never happen no matter how hard you try. Even a bad idea is not destroyed, rather developed further for better and more advanced ideas.


I Grant You 3 Wishes!

I remember the first time I watched Aladdin when I was kid and Genie appeared and offered Aladdin 3 wishes. I was awed! I said to myself: “I wish I was there; I want 3 wishes! I would have asked for candies for each meal, Pikachu Pokemon card to show it off, and schools to shut down so that I could play all day long!” 

Haha! Now I look back and think to myself: ” Look at what used to worry about. I was free!” 

My life changed a lot, in good and bad ways. But you know what? I’ve grown too and I realized that my worst times where actually my favorite times and they always stuck in my mind. I still remember them and wish I could go back and go to detention, stay after-school and be silly, play pranks on teachers, chew gum and get yelled at, and send notes in the pencil case! These where my BEST days, when they were my WORST at that time. 

And here I am today in university, going through my 3rd stage of my life and feeling like shit. Each day is more demanding and worse than the other and they don’t seem to end! 

If a genie comes out now and says: “Today is your lucky day! I will grant you 3 wishes. Tell me what you want!” I will respond by:” Thanks, but no thanks! I want to live these horrible days. When I am through and pass through my 4th stage of my life, I will look back and think to myself about how lucky I was: Free to skip class and work, meet with friends, participate in fun activities, get drunk, stay out late nights, overnight studying (not fun, but something to laugh about!), begging the teacher to change my grade or asking for help and making as many mistakes as I want and learning from them, getting a driver’s licence and drifting, failing and laughing about it.”

I don’t want to change anything in my life. I am satisfied. I just want to go with the flow and enjoy every moment whether it’s good or bad. 

Scared to Blog?!

A few days ago, I was studying for my Public Relations exam and I came upon a section about blogging. I got excited since it was something I could relate to.

While I was reading it, fear started building inside me. I became scared to blog. I read that some people sued bloggers because they were offended by what they said. That got me thinking, what if that was me? What if I get sued for saying something that may offend others while I am not aware of that? That thought scared the hell out of me and the “what if” questions wouldn’t stop popping up.

Should I stop blogging? Is it for the best?

But what about my space, my freedom that I have when I created my blog? That will go away. No! I will not stop blogging. I am not speaking of a sensitive topic; I am talking about who I am. If that is offensive for other people, well then let it be. I respect everyone’s point of view. But I will never change who I am unless I want to change, and I love and enjoy blogging and I don’t want to stop. So, I’ll continue.

And isn’t blogging about describing an opinion? a belief? Why sue? I don’t understand.

I mean if you’re offended, state it. Say your point of view. Why sue? If you don’t want to state it, ignore it.

But then again, if someone is spreading a false rumor about someone and a huge percentage of people are reading the blog then yeah there should be boundaries. But I wouldn’t consider suing. A warning would be better, then if one is not responding, ban from blogging.

So I will continue to blog because I could finally describe who I am through posts, media, quotes and other. I created my own space here and everybody is welcome. Say whatever you want, I respect it. If I offended anybody in any way, please do say so. Don’t sue me, please 😛 

Do You Feel Nostalgic?

It hits me several times. I always feel nostalgic. I don’t really know the reason behind it, but I guess I’m afraid I’ll lose my memories. Like today, I saw my supervisor when we were in Kindergarten and I’ve always thought that if I were to see any of my old teachers after 10 years I wouldn’t recognize them. But I did! And guess what: she hasn’t changed one bit! Seeing her made me even more nostalgic. Missing those old days when were kids, fooling around without thinking twice.

I get nostalgic the most when I’m in deep shit. I’d start thinking ” if I was back in KG none of this would have happened. I’d get in trouble, get yelled at and that’s it. The next day, I would go on and live my life”. Now, I can’t do that. I get in trouble, I must bear each mistake and fix it. I must bear the consequences. I must get hurt. I must try harder.I get nostalgic because it is harder now. I wish things were easier like when I was a kid.

Nostalgia hits me also, when I sit in a classroom in class and look around. I see where I am today and look back to where I was. I look back to see how much I have accomplished over the years and what changed about me. I have changed into a better, new, less shy and more social person. I’ve made more friends, chose a path I never imagined I’ll get into, I’ve joined clubs that challenged me personally which I’ve always avoided in my past, I’ve improved in so many ways that I don’t want to go back.

At the same time, I miss freedom and non-responsibility, acting foolish, being a kid & careless of what is to come and  my teachers, school and friends that I’ve known for 14 years!

I know they say its bad to get too nostalgic and its true. It could form a barrier between you and the reality you live in. You would use it to avoid the world you are in and will never move forward. But I know my limits.
