Selfishness

we’re all selfish. some more than others. me included.

but i don’t get how people can be SO SELFISH…don’t they realise people CARE ABOUT THEM AND GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THEM…SO WHY DO THEY HAVE TO GO AND SLOWLY KILL THEMSLEVES…whether it’s trhough cancer sticks, being overweight…just generally neglecting your body and self…

sigh.

people are selfish. we care about ourselves…not always. we eat too much and we don’t excercise enough. heck, i do that!

one of my favourite quotes is: “Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lie down until it goes away.” Robert Maynard Hutchins

i walk as much as i can but i still get out of breath walking up the stairs…*cringe*

obesity is a PREVENTABLE DISEASE.no i am not obese. or overweight. i have a fast metabolism system. πŸ˜‰

more people die from smoking than obesity in the UK yet more money is spent on obesity…PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO STOP PEOPLE FROM SMOKING OR DRINKING OR EATING EXCESSIVLEY BECAUSE THEY JUST WANT MONEY.

it all comes down to greed and selfishness.

this world is so screwed up. sometimes i feel so ashamed to be human. i hope if there are aliens they have COMMON SENSE…OR SENSE COZ COMMON SENSE IS EVIDENTLY NOT COMMON.

i watched Ross Kemp’s Extreme World…the one in the Democratic Republic of Congo

this laptop that i’m using, the mobile phone that i have and the remote controls we use- blood on our hands.

people have been machetted (is that even a word?) and raped and massacred just to get the minerals to use in our electronics.

STUPID TRANS NATIONAL CORPORATIONS WHO OWN MORE MONEY THAN WHOLE COUNTRIES…that is disgusting

is money the root of all evil?! nowadays perhaps it is. GREED…people in power a greedy for more…we are never content with what we have.

i am greedy too. for books. and knowledge. and chocolate. and it would be nice if i had more money so i could travel the world and save lives by providing people with money for surgery or just medicine…those pharmecutical and drug companies…wow they are frickin raking in it at the expense of HUMAN LIVES.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SANCTITY OF LIFE?! why don’t we value life so much? oil is more important than human life because there’s bloodshed coz of oil.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding says it all- we all have the beast within…it’s not MAN VS BEAST COZ MAN IS BEAST.

yet people do care. the minority. but as we’ve learnt minority can influence and become te ne wmajority…women eventually got the vote, slavery was eventually abolished etc but there are still countless civil wars going on with NO INTERVENTION WHATSOEVER…why? oh coz we don’t interefere with other countries and their affairs and yeah their leaders are killing their citizens but we’ll just sit back and invade other countires which have oil and minerals and soemthing to offer us…

zimbabwe- no one is interfering or giving a crap coz they don’t have anything to gain from it.

the UN have tried and failed numerous times to intervene in affairs…to no avail. i mean what the hell…BOSNIA- THEY JUST WATCHED WHILE THE SERBS ‘ethnically cleanse’ the muslims…POINT BLANK…LINES THEM ALL UP AND SHOT THEM. lovely. what did they do- NOTHING. what could they do?!

10 years there’s been conflic tin the Congo and technology improves so does the demand…

i mean…Pocahontas Colours of the Wind says it all:

‘You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew…’

SIGH.

in other news….casting for Peeta and Gale today…i don’t mind Lucas Till (Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me video) as my beloved Peeta (bread) but yeah…i don’t really know.

i’m quite happy with Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. Winter’s Bone was good…not AMAZING. but yeah.

Just Go With It- Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler- so funny. =P

in other news…protests in London about the cuts…yeah well…those companies wich have been avoiding paying taxes (ahem..*cough* Topship and Vodaphone)- the amount fo money they owe would cover the cuts the government’s making on education.thanks. selfish b********

oh….i watched Rebecca Black’s video for Friday…yeah…it’s such a JOKE. i mean…so what she knows the days of the week but honestly…i heard that in an interview she says someone told her she sounds like Taylor Swift. YEAH RIGHT. DREAM ON BIATCH.

i’ll leave you with this…

‘technology made it easy for us to stay in touch while keeping a distance

till we just stay distant and never touch

now all we do is text too much.’

 

PEACE. LOVE. BOOKS. =D

p.s and because i’m still reading I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou i have to have a quote by her coz she is just too awesome NOT to quote.

“Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet” Maya Angelou
