shaky window of love © neochan [Nov. 18th, 2005|02:25 pm]
[Current Mood |crankycranky]

Trying to catch a passing glimpse of the Hyde-ster proved yet again fruitless.. but it's a lovely thing to indulge in such a frivolity, isn't it? Sometimes I worry that my interests tend to indulge towards the absolutely frivolous Hyde obsession and that I should be more serious about life- engage in more debate & protest. Then I recall my time in Animal Right or Anti Nuclear Protests & it seemed like I didn't have the right spirit for it.

I think that my total disinterest in popular blue collar culture here drove me to this Japanese obsession - I miss having a course to take. Sometimes I find myself feeling really out of place with peers since it is not uncommmon for people to start spewing out some anti-Asian this or anti-Arab that assuming we were like minded.. There is an FM talk radio show - geared for my peers (I'm assuming)
Warning-Prolonged exposure caused retardation in lab rats

~~~~~ Thank you Matsuchan

Yeah, one day at work, some guy I was ringing up started going off to Natalie and I about the Chinese (for absolutely no reason... I can't remember what brought it up at all but it was completely ridiculous), and how they all kill their children, blah blah blah. What was even more frustrating was that he took our stunned silence to mean only that we're young, and therefore just don't care about things like that.

I would think it would be a bit less in upwardlymobile Novi? Oh wait, there is that Redneck mentality that moved to the Northern burbs to leave Detroit..
ahh we can't win wherever... We must stick together then.

I always get the Chinese are going to take our jobs...blahblah & then I whip out a dictionary and say "Well I'm gonna be ready" =p It hurts my feelings, I CANT IMAGINE how it feels to be Asian (or Arab..or whoevver) and hear that everyday

I know what you mean! There're also the people I work with - they're nice people and all, but we have a TON of Asian and Arabic people that shop with us, and sometimes I really can't stand to watch the way they're treated by some of my co-workers. Natalie and I are the complete opposites; it's almost like we both go out of our way to be as nice and helpful and possible, especially for them, to make up for it!

As a dobule-minority, I don't want to hear anyone putting down ANYONE. And I LOVE Japanese culture. Have sinceI was about 12 years old. I'm planning on going back to school in the Spring for my degree as I know I told you before! I'm very excited about it. ^__^

You and I need to go to Novi and go to the Market and go to lunch and then we'll feel a little better. :)

Some of the people in my year say "Go and eat your cats!" to one of my chinese friends if he's silly or something.. They say it in a funny way and he always laughs, but my heart always aches when I hear things like that, because there is no way this boy wouldn't take it serious, and apart from that it's a prejudice and an insult for all chinese.. I had these arguments so often, and really, nobody wants to understand.. My afghan friends say that they can kinda understand people complaining about "foreigners" taking away their jobs.. "I think afghan people wouldn't like german people to work in Afghanistan either."- they' ve changed so much over the last years.. Maybe because they were treated badly..

I have no real interest in life, whatsoever, besides my love for Japan. I do a lot of things, have many curiosities... but everything leaves me blah... even the prospect of my future. Of course I feel concerned about Nuclear Weapons or Animal Protection, but I just think there are other people out there who can do it better. I can do this better. I think...

So yes, I hear you ^-^ Maybe we should just move there.

Love the pics, as usual. *chuu*
