- i'm so tired of the racism towards asians bec of the pandemic. nope, not a victim of one--but ive seen it happen to other asians (mostly east asians). yes it came from china, but let's not generalize east asians... like??? south korea is dealing the virus better than most countries yet koreans are getting lumped into the racism
i know when most people are talking about asians, they mostly mean east asian anyway... but as a filipino it still makes me feel unsafe. i probably will not fall to these attacks but it still concerns me. and fuck the other poc for joining into the racism. just because you've experienced racism yourself, doesn't give you the right to combat it with your racist behavior. fuck you. i've read stories of filipinos being victims of chinese racists. these made me super angry but i still think it isn't right to be racist or generalize chinese people. if you're gonna fight fire with fire, you won't win. IT WON'T GET YOU ANYWHERE AT ALL. - when parents say "we can't resist our children from playing outside"... just say you shouldnt be a parent. you shouldnt be letting your kid out while a pandemic is ongoing. ffs, let them know this is something that shouldn't be taken lightly. stop shielding them from this.
so, i read somewhere you should always look at the number of deaths & recovered, than cases well we have more deaths than recovered people, which is bad bec it means we aren't flattening the curve anytime soon. just this afternoon, i saw people bringing their kids in the park. like WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU LET YOUR KIDS PLAY OUTSIDE?! kids can also be infected!!!!!!!!!! ffs some people shouldn't be parents 🤦
regardless theres belief to back it up or not, i think it makes more sense that you'll have multiple people to be compatible with overall (and its up to you who you wanna end up with). I think thinking theres one person for you can be pressuring imo.. tho i understand where that belief came from (red string of fate comes to mind esp that ancient greek belief where humans are split into two ppl)
i wish i wasnt so harsh on myself last year (and the years before that). when i remember how my self esteem was doing in the last years, i end up remembering terrible stuff. i dont criticize my looks as much this year, but yeah i wish i did that earlier.
i personally dont think there's one soulmate. you can be deeply compatible with more than one person--but you're going to choose one you'll live with forever. like for example, i used to think this guy was for me, but i recognize that there might be another person for me.
i dont think i was ugly as a small child, but i went through an awkward phase in middle school. also my hairstyle choices (my weeb-ness was the inspiration of my terrible looks) made me look questionable. my face was rounder back then.. i was just, awkward looking. however i think i 'bloomed' starting in high school (not to brag but... i had like medal for being pretty in class. i dont think im the prettiest tho but it was nice). i'm 21 and i have a baby face and innocent looks. it makes me feel special another point- i didnt age much but i look better than i was before... if that makes sense lol?
i'm tired of this pandemic. i want things to go back to normal again Im fucking tired of hearing about it. Im tired of being anxious. For fucks sake, the cable of my drawing tablet decides to break down during lockdown, so there goes my hobby/coping mechanism! my sis ordered a new one, but it was before the lockdown so now i'm not getting it any sooner whats worse, the government is doing a sloppy job with handling the pandemic, SO NOW ITS GOING TO LENGTHEN THINGS FURTHER! FFS I FEEL LIKE ALL OF US WILL DIE BECAUSE OF THEIR ACTIONS! AND A FUCKING POLITICIAN IS POSITIVE FROM THE VIRUS AND ROAMED OUTSIDE HIS HOUSE
im really trying to be positive... but this worsened my germaphobe habits and ive been sleeping super late at night. im worried about EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE
i don't easily trust "woke" people because i know some woke people who are huge hyprocrites/offenders themselves lmao *cough* twitter *cough* like... fine, criticize people when they do wrong things... it's also not a criminal act to give people a chance too.
i could never generalize anyone based on their race. i remember a post saying "you can't hate innocent people based on a group" and i agree. that has been my motto ever since. i'll be honest tho, sometimes i feel like its statements like this that cause people to 'change' their race. also, poc think they can get away making racist comments...like HELLO. just cause you were victimized doesnt give you a pass to hate others. i've seen racism hurled against my fellow countrymen (and i was deeply hurt by it) but i could never hate an entire race--even if that race is the privileged one. heck even some of my friends perpetuate this behavior. i cant even say nice things about a european country without getting yelled by their anger towards white people *shrugs*
you can criticize a country but not to the point of prejudice smh
and i agree. my mom says its an apocalypse but she's been saying that every time a disaster comes up. i clearly remember there was a storm coming (our country is vulnerable to those) and she says the world will end....and that has been 8+ years ago. most of the bad stuff that happened in the first month calmed down/are done. it's just this virus now.
fuck the people who hoard all the alcohol and sell them at an extreme, higher price. thats not fucking fair. let people buy the extra alcohol in the store so the transmission will be slower here. i know it's economics but to sell them like theyre diamonds is taking advantage of a fucking fatal situation. smh.
with the virus going around, i'm really worried for my parents the most. theyre both in their 60s. i read that senior citizens are the most vulnerable to the virus. i really hope none of them catches it. luckily they know how to avoid it... but i wish it's over. school is suspended for 1 week and students aren't allowed to roam in malls. but honestly i think it should apply to everyone tbh... unless you need to go out to buy something or w/e. (also ive been a huge germaphobe in the past years so all the hand washing has prepared me for this i guess)
