nay0hmee: 4 years ago that I first saw you in grade 10 leadership class, with your chubby baby face, fcuk sweater (back when everyone thought it was soooo cool haha) and jeans. You walked in with your little friends, not knowing some of those friends would be some of my best. I still remember thinking “Oh… AWWW Naomi that was adorable! Makes me wanna have a boyfriend too d: Been alone...

The moment a man questions the meaning and value of life, he is sick, since...– Sigmund Freud I don’t agree with its non-existence, but it really does make one sick.
A change of scenery.
Since three weeks ago I’ve been feeling a sense of confusion about the meaning and purpose of my life. I tried asking everyone I knew about how I could stop these strange and disconcerting feelings that left me so very, very lost. I’ve accepted now that it’s time for a change of personality—something that I experience every three years or so. I’ve stopped listening...

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to...
Professor: You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is God good?
Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is God good, then? Hmm?
(Student was silent)
Professor: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?
Professor: Is Satan good?
Professor: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From.. God.
Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Professor: So who created evil?
(Student didn’t answer)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them?
(Student had no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God.
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Student: No, sir, there isn’t.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was a pon-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student: You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light… But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called Darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The class was in uproar)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
(The class broke out into laughter)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)
Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!
Gotta keep the faith.
Alone watching Valentine’s Day with vodka by my side. Self-pity party: Mission Accomplished
There are so many signs but I don’t know which way to go.
I wish that feeling would go away. The feeling of nothingness is sucking the life out of me.

odboi: Some people dream of success, others make it happen. Of course, you can dream as much as you like but waiting for things to happen gets you nowhere. Get active and start making things happen. Whatever journey your path takes you on, the most important thing is to have passion in what you…
I asked for it...
I asked—prayed—for the feeling to come back. The one where your heart beats fast and a smile slowly but surely creeps onto your face uncontrollably. A light, fluffy feeling coming from the depths of your chest as it bubbles out as a sigh; one of contentment not sadness. I asked for it and received it in song form. Sure it’s not a person but at least I have the feeling back,...
Three days ago: Fortuitously found the song on Youtube after not having listened for several months. Two days ago: Songs added to Youtube queue. One and a half days ago: Downloaded both albums. Listened to them non-stop. One day ago: Bought debut album. Today: Bought tickets for their concert. May 31: Going to Jack Singer to see The Fray :)
ENTJ: Good at pissing people off and not caring about it. INTJ: They’ll piss you off but convince you that there’s no problem with it.
THE FRAY. IN CALGARY. IN MAY. Am I going? HELL YEAH.
Dear People of the World
Why do you stare at me so? Today I came to school with 15 minutes of sleep, nasty hair, random clothes thrown on, and severely desiring a refreshing shower. So after first (and only) class I go straight to Timmy’s and the guy in front of me was being veerry awkward. Dude I can see you looking at me! I’m not blind buddy. I’d have appreciated it more if you made small talk but...
High School: You copy your homework off your friend and won’t be afraid of getting caught because even if you do, the worst thing you’d get is a detention. University: You’re scared as hell to accidentally copy and cite every word like there’s no tomorrow because you might be kicked out and banned from going to school for 2 years.

Where they burn books, they will ultimately burn people.– Heinrich Heine
Deadly Afghan protest over Koran →
Just because you believe in something that doesn’t agree with what others believe or do does not give you a reason to horribly disrespect them. Debating, arguing, peacefully protesting and other forms of effective communication is fine; it is even encouraged. However when you start burning books or killing others (who are often scapegoats), it is an unacceptable, inhumane act.
This obsession just won’t die.
