I haven't written a blog in a while, so I thought I would bore you all with some of my recent thoughts, they do go pretty deep and personal so brace your selves.
I don't claim to be a worldly person, in fact I'll admit to knowing very little. But perhaps I know a little bit more about the ways of the world, than my friends who have grown up in one town, went to school in the same town, then to college and then to university.
Living in England at this time and age despite the riots and the recession and all the political upheaval that has been going on recently, we as a generation still have it pretty good, some might disagree with me.
However I think regardless of all the faults, our education system is reputable. We do well in exams, we pass on to the next stage of education, and we even get financial help. Most people take this for granted, as do I, however I know enough to realizes, it’s not like this in all parts of the world. To some these kind of opportunities is a mere dream, or the option of education is not even a possibility and day-to-day survival comes first and foremost.
A recent trip to Amsterdam's red light district prompted a discussion of why prostitutes would choose such an occupation. I left it at each person has their own set of circumstance. Whilst my friend couldn't understand why they wouldn't go to college then go on to university. I mean these are girls from all across eastern Europe, I did try and explain that it probably wasn't a feasible option and we don't know enough for us to judge.
My friend did argue that in spite of the circumstance people could still make a better living for them selves by becoming educated. Which I agree with, however I think its naive of her to think opportunities for others would come so easily, like it did for us, to think people can go through life with out needing to get their hands dirty.
However all that I could over look, but where the discussion headed next really made me question my friendship, It's no secrete to me that they look down upon me because of my choice of degree I do arts, whilst they do sciences. They laugh and say it joke of a degree that will get me no where in life, whilst theirs requires effort and intelligence, and will get them places, I can accept perhaps this is all true.
I couldn't accept the fact they somehow saw them selves as better, smarter people purely because they had been educated, and every one else who doesn't go thought this process has a lower IQ and will never really amount to anything. I couldn't believe how conceited my friends are, it astonished me, I mean hell they can blearily wipe the own arses, they don't know how to cook, clean, or properly live by them selves, but apparently non of this is important as academia.
Is it really that big of a deal to be academic, I know plenty of smart people who never sat and A level test or even gone to college am I supposed to just disregard them as idiots because they don't have a master or a degree. We've had education handed to us on a plate and we take everything for granted. And not every one leads a live like ours, their option and priorities are completely different.
To think that all people have the same goals in life as us and those who don’t were simply too stupid, or slow to achieve it. Surely that’s the most idiotic way of thinking? I realized that I know very little of the world but my friends live in a totally enclosed protective delusional bubble of their own.
Personally I think in the long run education means jack all and its what you achieve and what you make out of life, isn't it?
Or is this the ranting of an idiotic failure, who simply can’t face the truth?

It's 5 AM right now,and I've been updating the site.
I'm tired,but I can't sleep. That's like the worst feeling ever.
So~~ I decided I'd talk to myself through the addition of a blog entry. It's been a long while since one has posted.
I guess I'll just ramble on about things on my mind.
I've been feeling restless a lot,lately. Especially late at night. I'll look out the window and just want to get in my car and drive off and never look back.
Does anyone else ever feel that yearning to escape?
--Then that voice of reason chimes in that I'd end up either serial killed or an epic hobo. O_o
So,if I had a few thousand in my bank account,and my cat died or something,I could totally see myself disappearing from it all,starting over somewhere else.
Of course,that wouldn't really protect me from getting serial killed,so I'd have to spend a year training with Chuck Norris and learning the ways of self defense.
Or buying some mace. <_<
Then I'd fail to find a job and dwindle through my savings and still end up a hobo.
But since I have martial arts experience,I'd be determined to be a superhero hobo.
Or super villain who never really does anything or hurts anyone,depending on how angry at the world I am by that point in my life. <_<

As members of the greatest site on the web,it's time to address a concern of ours we clearly aren't very concerned about.
Mahi -OWNER- and I are poor.
Too cheap to upgrade servers to a decent provider.
We are running out of bandwidth. Which,for those of you who aren't computer savvy,it's like our website hard drive. -uses a computer reference for the un-computer savvy-
And because we keep relentlessly uploading shizz,we have almost exceeded this bandwidth.
We are uncertain whether the site will crash or just lag a ton.
But,once again,it doesn't really matter,because the bandwith resets on Sep.13th.
So,if the greatest website in the history of life turns to fail for the next few weeks,please bear with us and return on the 13th when we are 100 percent again.
To make this more interesting,I have rainbow schemed it and added a picture of probably Zac Efron.

I have discovered the true horror of penorz.
1) Type penorz into Google.
2) Scroll down until you see Homer Simpson, Jesus, and an elephant.
