So for all you out there who like me, has no idea why there is SO much hype around the wedding of Will & Kate. This is for you. I did watch the wedding, my mother is obsessed with the Royal family. The dress was nice, but other than that it really was just like any other wedding - just with about 2000 more people in the church. And 2 billion people watching around the world.
But why is their wedding so important to the public? Is it fair to them that it’ll never be something special and private that was just for them? It was shared with the entire world. It wasn’t private or intimate which is what a wedding should be.
So my parents are out at a wedding right now, they dragged my younger siblings to it too. I refused to go, you know why? Because to be quite honest I have no idea who the fuck the couple is. I don’t know them, I’ve never met them and they probably have no idea who I am either. I would feel rude going, because I wouldn’t be sharing in the joy that is a wedding. I’d be sitting in the freezing cold church, singing hymns sarcastically and looking forward to leaving. Is that fair to the couple? I think not. People should want to be there. They should be happy, not counting the minutes till cake time.
So today I decided I’d start a blog. However, I have absolutely no motivation, nor do I have the thinking capacity to begin one. A blog, my friends takes up a huge amount of time. So now I’m wondering what to do. Should I start one? Maybe I should just start using my Tumblr more?
I sort of liked my Tumlbr the way it was - a trashy tumblelog. Just like every other kid’s. Everyone seems to have Tumblr now, when I first got it, the appeal it had was that hardly anyone was using it and that maybe I could express myself without being subject to the usual scrutiny of the people in my everyday real life. Unfortunately, now everyone’s got one, they’re all linked up to their Facebook - mine’s not - and now I seem to have a mini Tumblr feed in my Facebook feed. Which defeats the purpose of why I got one in the first place.
So now what? Do I keep going or do I decommission mine? Or do I just leave it to float around cyberspace for all eternity. In the information age, people seem to start things and just forget about them - there a millions of forgotten blogs, they just take up space on a server somewhere, not serving any purpose at all. It seems like a waste of space. A waste of effort.

The internet allows peoples to project themselves to people. To be the centre of attention, if only for a second. Is this narcissism?

It’s been 1 and a half years since I’ve left school. Was it weird being there? Yes. Why? Because it felt so normal - like coming home after a long trip.
Is it wrong of me to miss school?
