A rant about hypocrites

Hello, fellow friends of the internet!
You may have noticed my very long break from posting. My condolences and I’m sorry for that. I’ve been in and out of places and my computer isn’t working very well. I haven’t been able to access WordPress or anything. Well, anyway, let’s get started.
By the way, I’ve just noticed most of my recent blog post are rants. Sorry (not sorry), my life is full of irritations and annoyances I just have to let it all out and say something. Nothing I can do about it.
Well, I can, but let’s admit it, I’m too lazy to.

This would be me if it weren’t for me having to go places and do stuff.
Okay, if there is one thing I hate, it’s hypocrites. Like, there is nothing that is as annoying as them.
Now, hypocrites, as defined by the lovely Siddownshaddap on Urban Dictionary, is “(1) A person who engages in the same behaviors he condemns others for. (2) A person who professes certain ideals, but fails to live up to them. (3) A person who holds other people to higher standards than he holds himself.”

Here’s the link if ya’ll want to go check it out.

It’s the top definition as of the twenty-seventh of June.
Okay, we’re all human and all that and we are going to end up on doing stuff like this, I realize that, but I simply hate those who continually say something and do the opposite.
For example, I know some people that are really into helping others boost their self-confidence and everything, right? Every highschool you go to, there’s got to be a girl or lad that’s into helping others and all that. Like, that’s cool. Then there are people who are like that, but behind people’s backs or plain in front of the person, are snobby little gits.

Okay, cool. You can preach on and on about whatever your mind tells you to, but not many people’ll actually listen to you if you do all that stuff. Seriously.
Some of you might be like, “You’re a foolish little ninth grader who hasn’t an ounce of logic or common sense” or “What the freak would you know about them?” or “Stop judging, you hater.”
Well, my response to you is that I just don’t like that they say something and do the other. It’s confusing and utterly perplexing from this point of view and for someone who doesn’t know much about the whole elaborate art of socializing and all that, it’s like telling me to make dinner with hardware tools.
Now, most of the girls in my grade are very savvy with words. No, seriously. Check their Instagram captions all you like, they are straight-up word wizards. They can say a scrabble of words and make it sound like a verbal or wordal or whatever version of Raphael’s School of Athens.

I still can not get the fact that Michelangelo just got roasted out of my freakin’ mind.

Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s just Google or GoodQuotes.comAnyways, they talk about how everyone is their own kind of beautiful. All sorts of things that make people nearly, but not nearly at the same time, cry. Phrases that sound so beautiful and sound like took eras to craft.

Anyways, they talk about how everyone is their own kind of beautiful. All sorts of things that make people nearly, but not nearly at the same time, cry. Phrases that sound so beautiful and sound like took eras to craft.
Here’s the thing that annoys me SO. FREAKING. MUCH.
At school, they’ll look at some girl different if she has acne or is a few pounds overweight.

They’ll start teasing and doing stuff they said they wouldn’t do or they hated.

And I’m just here like:

It’s annoying as crap. And most people say why I don’t talk with them and all that. Well, first of all, being someone who’s normally on the outside and quiet, you see a bit more about people. I’m really observant and being quiet, in my opinion, is better than all that.

Now I know that the world still has great people, I’m not ranting that the whole world is a back-stabbing, wannabe planet. All I’m saying is that there are certain people that really, really annoy me with what they do.

Anyways, back to that girl we were talking about. Everyone thinks by default she’s nice and all, just because she puts a whole bunch of stuff. It sucks. Now I don’t want to be mean or anything, but most people are blind.

If you want to know what a man’s like, look at how he treats his inferiors.

-ALBUS DUMBLEDORE

Here’s a meme I found on the internet, bois.

Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts during most of Harry’s education, said that quote. It was referring to how Lucius Malfoy treated Dobby and how people treat people deemed “inferior.”

If you want to know how a person is, check and see how they act in the worst of times. These times will most often that not reveal the cold truth about a person, or reveal hidden greatness and nobility.

Well, bye. I’ll catch you guys on the flip side. Peace.

PS. I really need to stop ranting. Help me, please. Donate some happiness and contentedness to the less fortunate.

Incomprehensible Rant About Buses

Hullo, everyone! Today, we were coming home, as usual, but had to go on the bus than our usual walk because meh, we didn’t feel like walking and my brother “twisted” his ankle or something.

When the bus finally arrived, I had Heathers blaring in my head and thought, “Why don’t I do a parody of “Candy Store,” but instead of Heather”

PERSON 1:
Is it gonna be late again?
Another half-hour gone?
I’ve got to go,
somewhere at a certain time and place.
I’d normally wait till it comes,
And everyone else would too.
But It’s way too late
For this, mate.
Listen up, biotch!

PERSON 2 & 3:
I hate!

PERSON 1:
Wastin’ time
Especially in this clime

PERSON 2 & 3:
I hate!

PERSON 1:
Comin’ late
‘Cause you don’t seem as great

PERSON 2 & 3:
I hate!

PERSON 1:
Spendin’ dime
Being scared
Losing him

PERSON 1:
Buses who

PERSON 1-3:
Never seem to come on time!

BUS DRIVER:
But there was traffic

PERSON 1:
Oh, that’s a classic

PERSON 3:
But there’s no car in sight for miles

PERSON 2:
YEAH!

PERSON 1:
Or maybe if you’d stop texting*
Not get in so many arguments
And get newer buses

PERSON 1-3:
Woah! Woah! Woah!
Honey, whatchu waitin’ for?
The buses need some more work
It’s time for you to prove
Buses are truly good.
And you better listen, all you city jerk.

 *I haven’t seen them texting, but like they’re are drivers who text, there may be some bus drivers who are on the phone while driving. All of the bus drivers are super nice in my town, so it’s not a problem in here, but were a pretty small town, totally different than Oakland or San Francisco.
If it’s not apparent enough, I hate late buses. I only seem to use them to get to and from school and any time that can be used for writing on my blog or doing ¨homework¨ is precious time.
I’ve renounced buses. Like, I’ve only been walking than on the bus. The sad part is I’m actually going to college over the summer and as far as I know, you can’t walk the way there, so back to buses, I guess.
Buses are the one thing I do not have the patience for. Sure, I may be able to wait in lines, but buses are the only exception.

Okay, it’s getting a bit old now, but I had to.

Oh, and waiting in this heat? Don’t even get me started. Sitting in over 100° F temperatures and in plain sight of the sun really annoys me. The bus stops in my area have no benches or a little blue shade thing for us to wait. And when there are fancy little blue shade things (I don’t know what they’re called), they’re always vandalized, smell of smoke, and are so just enclosed and stuff and badly ventilated.

BREAKING NEWS: They are called bus shelters. Where they got shelter from, I have no idea.

Storytime: there was this guy who was “touching himself” according to police. In other words, he was masturbating. A couple of kids from the school I go to saw him and told the school’s cop. Him and a couple of others tried to arrest the guy, but you know, people don’t go away quietly.

It would’ve been quite a sight to see. A person running away from the cops. I feel bad for the guy and the cops for being involved in the whole situation. It was probably pretty awkward in the courtroom and everything.

Anyway, the cops tased the guy after he tried jumping over the fence and the story ends there. The guy had a previous criminal record.

There have been lots of fights around the bus stops too. Like, it gone to the point where someone’s been stabbed and ambulances and paramedics came.

Well, enough about buses. It’s summer and I may not be able to post as often since I share a computer with my family. Anyway, goodbye for now and I’ll catch you on the flipside. Peace.

Novelas: Romanticizing a Whole $%^#load of Things

Okay, I’m going to rant for a bit. Just a warning, but there may be a tad of rambling with some errors because yeah, that’s me. Let’s start.

I’m a sucker for a happy ending. I’m also a sucker for a good plot and storyline and characters not being killed off.

*Cough* Suzanne Collins *cough*

I am also a big fan of telenovelas. For those of you who aren’t familiar with them, they’re just Hispanic/Latino soap operas. Sort of like The Young and the Restless. They’re quite famous for having the characters all glammed up with makeup, overreactions, and the following meme:

Image result for cry in spanish

Both of my parents are Mexican and in our home, novelas are our Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in a way. They’re incredibly dramatic and have some really over-the-top acting. There are lots of great actresses and actors and very talented writers.

At our household, we normally enjoy the ones with guns and drugs and cartels and everything. My mother’s dad and she would watch things like that when they were younger and my dad’s just been into that stuff since forever.

Now that I’ve stated all that, let’s get on to the good stuff.

Novelas, first of all, seem to make the lady protagonist very dainty and very weak compared to the male lead. Now, occasionally, some novela comes out saying that the woman lead is a strong, independent lady who doesn’t need a man to validate her worth, but that’s a whole bunch of bull%^&$.

Why am I cursing so much?

Back to the point though, you can’t have someone that’s an independent leader and who is very, hmm… love needing or reassured security, you know? It may not have sounded right, but the woman in the novela is typically the one who needs saving, the damsel in distress, but it may not be shown as the traditional way. The woman may be some sort of workaholic who isn’t very chill, who’s really stressed. Enter stage left, a man who will somehow make things better and lead you to the right direction (did anyone notice the play on words). The woman may be someone who is self-conscious and insecure. Or, like this one novela that started a bit ago, she may be a fan of some rich dude or some actor. They fall in love and it’s sort of that whole situation of a celebrity falling in love with a fan.

The point of all that writing for those of you that didn’t understand was that women are still being portrayed in a very sexist manner. Machismo (it couldn’t find an English way to say it, but just look it up) is still present in the film industry. It’s probably going to stay that way for a long time.

Oh, and can we just talk about the place fo LGBTQ people in novelas? You don’t typically see any, and I mean any, characters who are part of the LGBTQ community. When there are some, the show typically tries to make them the hero and try to make being lesbian, bisexual, genderqueer, etc., incredibly okay (which it absolutely is). But here’s the bad thing: aside from that one show, the other shows on the same channel or the same show itself seem to make the characters comply with associated stereotypes and labels given to people who are LGBTQ. And that’s really upsetting because they try to make it look okay, but then at the same time, are ridiculing it and making it seem dumb, irrational, or unusual.

There’s this one show – it’s not a novela, but it’s shown on Univision which is this very important Hispanic channel that shows novelas too – about this guy who’s boss sleeps in his apartment after him and his wife get a divorce.

Some of you people who watch this stuff may already know what it’s called. Durmiendo con mi Jefe (Sleeping With my Boss), like I said a bit earlier, is about some guy. His boss lives with him after a divorce because his wife got a whole bunch of property and most of what was his. Anyway, the boss has a daughter and son – they’re both adults – and they seem to not like him because of his conservative views and his affair with another woman and him being the reason the divorce actually happened. The son mentioned above is gay. I’m happy they have a person who isn’t straight on this show, but they seem to make jokes about the son.A

Aall. The. Freaking. Time.They have this one episode about the guy finding out the boss’s son is gay and they try hiding it from the boss. It’s just bad, I’m getting a headache trying to summarize it.

They have this one episode about the guy finding out the boss’s son is gay and they try hiding it from the boss. It’s just bad, I’m getting a headache trying to summarize it.

They crack some jokes about him being too feminine and being too this and that. They say jokes about how he’s gay and how his dad, who’s the “greatest guy” and “hot” and a whole bunch of blasphemy, is so masculine. It’s so dumb.

Another bad thing is that you don’t really see any difference in the protagonists. The protagonists are generally some skinny, muscular, “attractive” people. I said “attractive” because they’re typically models and body builders and things like that. They’re people that may be deemed as attractive and sexy by large amounts of people.

For example, Wendy Gonzalez is this model who then acted on Como Dice el Dicho. She got some huge fame for that. They get some models with a physique that is so not us. Most people don’t have abs. People on TV do though and since they see them getting chicks and dudes, they may feel pressured to do whatever they can to get that body. They tell us to practice body acceptance when they’re aren’t really any celebrities that have bodies like us. That’s just my thought on it.

And the fact that they romanticize things like being an immigrant sucks! There’s this one novela that finally ended.

I mean, I liked it, but I just liked all the slaps and the petty drama. That’s me. When your life’s as bland as a cracker, you have to go with the next best thing: TV.

Anyway, Vino el Amor was that type of novela that has this strong female lead, but at the same time, she is not strong nor independent. Her emotions were in such a turmoil and she can’t freaking make her mind on what guy sh]’\)Le wants. She keeps changing them like a pair of underwear.

The novela is about immigrants who work at this vineyard. They’re illegal in the beginning, but after some of them get deported, the boss fills out paperwork and the workers there become naturalized citizens.

The people deported is the protagonist and her father. The father dies, she goes back to the U.S.

Before I go on, it’s a remake of this Chilean novela, La Chúcara.

Just look at the similarities.

Image result for vino el amor

And the thing is that they weren’t released to far apart. La Chúcara was released in 2014 and Vino el Amor in late 2016.

It just romanticized the notion of being an immigrant. Like, not too many people get married to some middle-aged sickly rich dude when they’re, like, 20. I just felt it was a bit too meh and like the writers were trying to make something normal, that’s common, into a novela. It didn’t work.

They’ve done it again with this novela. This one seems more acceptable since it is meant to be really different and really not relatable. There’s a whole bunch of things we don’t see much of like singing corporations and stuff like that.

To any novela writers, stop doing the above and try to implement actual relatable things and putting more people that look like us and are us into your shows.
