Life is a riddle; unfortunately the answer's not written on the back of anything

Long time no see… December 5, 2010

Bonsoir readers,

I have to continuously apologise for my absences.  Once you get in from college after a long day all you wanna do is go to bed. I feel so selfish because of it and it’s really insensitive to everyone who reads this wondering when I will ever return…

Still nice to see the hits are rolling along nicely….. Thanks. 😀

Anyway I have been travelling through the vortices of time that suddenly WAIT – *It’s almost Christmas!* No, WAIT again, that was my 5 year old consciousness talking…

Cue 17 year old teenage boy reaction. *Hmph*.

Yeh the novelty wears more that the soles on your shoes. (Bad Simile)

This is the endearing fact that although the traditions continue through your life, there’s always an optimum age wear Christmas is at it full WOWNESS. After that, oh dear oh dear oh dear. This doesn’t apply to everyone of course, but the transition from childhood to adulthood exposes you to the unknowns of Christmas –

the spending,

the shopping,

the endless queues,

and trying not to fall of the ladder when the decorations go up.

But hey, keep a smile on your face, you still get repeats on tv, the burnt turkey and the relatives you hate.

Signed Ebenezer

Seany.

Oh by the way, I have a great twitter website.

SummerTime July 23, 2010

I must apologise for my large absence. Sometimes the things in life just throw you upside down and inside out.

Anyway onwards and upwards 🙂

So as many of you now know it’s the summer time when students gather en masse to ditch the schoolbooks and uniforms for the beaches (weather permitting)  and unsurprisingly for many older teenagers the alcohol and partying….

Both the trip to the beach and a night out can be a little bit of harmless fun if dealt in the right way, but it has been quite close to my attention that many recent media stories, along with my friends’ activities,  have namely put shame to and exploited the innocent gesture of a night out.

Has this become aware due to my age and increasing exposure and knowledge of getting drunk?

or

Is there an evil antisocial monster lurking that is trying to demise the student’s ethical perception and parental reaction and relation of a night out?

Is this modern social disintegration and the student’s  confusion between the hierarchy of friends vs family driving us to making more wrong decisions or has this danger of overly drinking been apparent from generation to generation but has been sensationalised more recently by media outputs?

Till next time x

Being who you are March 3, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — seanylpa @ 7:16 pm

Sorry for the delay of this post. Sometimes computers really do hate you.

So today’s topic is coming out of the closet and how much of a big deal  and façade it usually drags along with it.

Saying just those two words, either ‘I’m gay’ or ‘I’m bi’ may take just a few seconds to say but are remembered for the rest of your life. Is that a good or a bad thing?

Depends.

Every teenager wanting to come out of the closet to their parents or guardians (like me!) knows it doesn’t take much to say who you are and if you probably ask them it’s not because they’re not sure if what they are is true, but what comes after it, and whether the reaction is either positive or negative.

What about me? Well I know for a fact that saying those words will be ideally a piece of cake and I would hope to think that what happens after will be generally accepted as who I am and what I believe. But a lot of us are scared that the worst case scenario will happen. Like being rejected or not accepted anymore. This may be the case in many religious backgrounds, but will the little gremlins that punish us everyday ever unearth and it this really an excuse to hide our true selves for the rest of our lives?

Coming out is not about ‘when’. It’s about ‘if’ for many of us. Ask yourself it is. You may think that it’s ‘not yet’ but in fact it is, and you don’t have the courage to take that important leap. Don’t keep it until it’s too late because you were pondering what everyone else thought. It’s hard to say but the only person who decides your life is you, take the chance.

 

Why can’t my school have a teacher like Sue Sylvester? February 16, 2010

Ah, Sue Sylvester – ABSOLUTE LEGEND!

To many you’re probably saying to yourself

“Who the hell is Sue Sylvester???”

Well I’ll tell you – she’s not real, but rather a character in the hit TV series ‘Glee’, and is portrayed by Jane Lynch. Sylvester is the cheerleader squad coach and has a habit of speaking her mind about anything.  She would barge her way into any situation just to make a meal out of it and make a person’s life misery if she doesn’t agree with their views. To put it simply, she’s evil, she wants her own way, and she doesn’t care to show it…

Now the problem is Sue Sylvester isn’t real, but if she was, I would pray that she’d work at my college. That persona of conviction,arrogance and determination would be perfect for an up and coming college like mine and show all those out of line students who’s boss.

In fact, why can’t every college have a Sue Sylvester! Our education system would benefit so much. The problem with today’s education is the increasing freedom students have to control the classroom and someone like her would honestly spit on it…

And that’s how Sue sees it 🙂

 

Peer Pressure Torments? February 15, 2010

Yeh, so peer pressure, something you would have probably heard over and over in Drama. I have anyway, and it’s something very common in our teenage minds. If your friend does it, you wanna do it too, just for popularity’s sake.

I wouldn’t say I’m that gullible, but there have been times recently where you feel you’re missing out on things that other people are doing, things you don’t particularly wanna do on the inside, but try to do on the outside just to look good.

I would admit I am more introvert than extrovert, and the thought of going out to parties on a Friday or Saturday night isn’t the most appealing thing to do. If it were up to me, and it is obviously, I would prefer to just stay in and watch tv – it’s more relaxing.

That’s one side to the argument, but how about the fact that if i don’t do any of this now, will I be ever be able to experience this again??? I’m 17 almost now and so far my teenage years have been average and rather lacking high paced excitement i.e. going out at night, but if I did change my ways, similar to my friends, would it help my self esteem? would it help my confidence in meeting other people?

Maybe in this sense, it really isn’t peer pressure that’s leading me to the partying side, but the realisation that I can’t always stay in every night watching tv if i wanna get on with my life or do something different, without that feeling of regret I may get when I’m forty that I never tried anything out that others did….
