I've decided to make a new journal for ranting, bitching, and general I-hate-the-world... ness.

Considering what my life is like at the moment, I imagine it will currently have more entries and be updated on a more regular basis than this one.

Because I expect some/many of the things I write in there to be, shall we say... controversial, I've decided to make it a friends-only journal.

This doesn't mean that I'm going to ignore you all, it means that if you add that journal as a friend, or comment on the entry requesting it, I'll add you as a friend on that journal. That is if you want to be depressed by my depressing entries of course. This is also why I wont be adding anyone unless they want me to.

So, um... yeah. mysanfrope

One made for ranting, because we all need a virtual "punchbag".

Now I've changed my Livejoural over to my umbra_textor account, I may end up removing/deleting this one...

Let me know on there if you want me to add you as a friend!

<td align="center">Love is most important in your life.

A high love concentration indicates that you want love in your life. It is very important to you and something that you strive to attain.

Despair [14 Nov 2005|08:41pm]
Something that was written by Neil Gaiman, has really stuck with me.

She decides to make a list of the things that make her happy.
She writes 'plum-blossom' at the top of a piece of paper.
Then she stares at the paper, unable to think of anything else.

Eventually it begins to get dark.

A Rant. A FÜCKING BIG RANT. [14 Nov 2005|10:10am]
[ mood | furious ]

The story of the Hare and the Tortoise.
Or the Tortoise and the Hare.
Whichever way you call it, that's what I'm talking about.

This is a fable, with a moral. What's the moral? Apparently, according to research, it's: "Slow and steady wins the race."


That's is so totally NOT the moral of that story! Whichever moron jumped to the idiotic conclusion that "slow and steady wins the race" was a fucking retard.

The REAL moral of the story of the Tortoise and the Hare is something along the lines of "Don't take stupid, pointless and unnecessary risks until you've accomplished your goal."

The Hare was just on the verge of winning the race, he was so close and then - like someone who DESERVES to be killed and turned into pot pie - he decided to have a "nap". Being careless, he fell asleep.

He could have won the race easily, but decided to take a risk, just because he thought he would increase the challenge, by letting the Tortoise catch up a little, or what?

He fall asleep because he was stupid and careless, he chose to do that instead of just winning the race when the finish line was so close, he was practically already there, and won. But decided not to. For whatever moronic reason he had. SO. HE. LOST.

The Tortoise won only by default, to show that taking stupid and totally pointless risks WILL MAKE YOU LOSE. You can't have a moral of a story, based on the idea of a race, with only one participant.
I'll say that again: The Tortoise was only there as a story device to show how the Hare could lose by the Hare taking a needless, unnecessary risk.

Does anyone need that re-clarified?

If I had the time, motivation and - most importantly - ability, I would love to write a Stargate Atlantis/(4th) Dr. Who crossover fanfic mini series.

Purely because I think Taela and Leela would make a fantastic team.

Most of the people who know me, know that I have no respect for Christianity.

And that's putting it mildly.

So there.

All three of my best and/or closest friends now all have someone special in their lives.

David, AJ and now Pete.

I'm really, really happy for all of them, so why do I feel so sad?

I'm just feeling sorry for myself, and wallowing in self-pity isn't good (I guess).

Kinda inspired (slightly) by a post of raptorix

What does my Icon make you think of?

Y'know - thoughs, feelings, impressions, etc.

[edit] I think I may have made a similar post ages and ages ago...

Recieved comfirmation from my bank today that the deposit for the University Halls of Residence has been transferred.

This is good.

Still waiting for the course catalogue and enrolment guide from the University, and then to apply for student allowance.

This is not good.

I am of the impatient people.

I've been offered a room for lodging with a friend in Telford, near Birmingham.

It's still just an idea at the moment, but I'll have to look into how it will all work out, and such.

Side note for people who may have missed my last entry:
I've removed everyone from my friends list, if you want me to re-add you to my friends list then leave a message. Thanks.

[ mood | pissed off ]

Today I've had three - THREE people shoot down my dreams of going to University and getting a University degree.

Well fuck them.

I am - read: AM - going to New Zealand at the start of next year, and if my university plans go all pear-shaped (like people seem to expect), fucked up and shitty I'll go and join the New Zealand army instead.

As Eric Cartman says: "Screw you guys, I'm going home."

In other news. I love this so much!

The Justice Card
You are the Justice card. Justice preserves the
harmony of the world. Working with opposite
forces, Justice does not seek to criticize or
condemn but rather to accept. The idea behind
the card justice is that opposite forces are
complementary; you could not have good without
evil or light without darkness. Justice's
position is to make sure that if a thing is out
of balance, the weight of its energy is
realigned with its opposite force. This card is
also a card of humour, for it is in pointing
out contrary positions that humour is often
found. The attitude that is found in the
humourous person, being able to shift
perspective and flow with an instinct, is
important in the maintenance of good balance.
