Poem #1: If You Love Someone

If you love someone, set them free.
If they come back, then you’re meant to be.
But if they don’t, do not despair.
There are plenty of hot guys and girls everywhere.

If you love someone, set them free.
If they come back, then you’re meant to be.
But if they don’t and they find another,
Just move on, turn your back and say “Whatever.”

If you love someone, set them free.
If they come back, then you’re meant to be.
But if you find them with someone of their same gender,
Smile and hug them, and say “I’m so happy you guys are together.”

If you love someone, set them free.
If they come back, then you’re meant to be.
But if you really can’t find the perfect one for you,
Then set yourself free and live your life anew.

*Hehehe. Sorry about this. I was struck by a momentary stroke of romanticism while watching Good Luck Chuck. Hope ya liked it. ^_^v*

Zenkx Against Cyberbullying

Man, the internet today is both an awesome and annoying thing, specially when it comes to things like bullying. ~_~

Just recently, I saw an episode of “If You Really Knew Me”, which addresses the modern concerns of High School students in the US, specially when it comes to “stereotyping”, where in students are seemingly grouped according to what the school society thinks them to be. They can be jocks, cheerleaders, nerds, outcasts, etc.

One of the thing that hit me during that show was about cyberbullying, or abusing someone’s well-being through digital means like texting, or through posts in FaceBook, MySpace or in their own personal blogs.

I find it really interesting and … disturbing, to think that these teenagers are practically ruining someone’s life by the words they say through the use of the InterNet and cellphones.

There was once a time when I was bullied in high school… way before texting was a fad. My friends were what they called nerds or outcasts, but I loved them, not because they are strange or anything, but because they were genuinely fun and really cool. My best friend, Joyce has been my friend since high school. And we had went through a lot of shit together from the bullies. We had chairs and books thrown at us. Joyce, particularly, being the smartest, was always pressured into doing someone else’s homework. She was called thin, and I was called weirdo. I had the biggest breasts in class, and they often picked at me because of it. Some went too far as to date me just to touch my breast for a bet.

I had… a bad time in high school, but it was Joyce, and my other friends, Beth, Juddee, Mary Jane, Joseph Ickx and Ericco who made me strong enough to not let a blade touch my wrist, because it would make them sad. When we were bullied, Beth would defend us, being a black belter in karate, and when we got so angry we would go out and hang at the mall, or sometimes in my house, where we would talk about things. It… made me really appreciate them and love them.

But now… it’s just scary. You don’t need physical contact just to be bullied by someone. Heck, you could be in the same school but not know each other until someone posts something awful about you.

I’ve heard about news of teenagers killing themselves because someone made an awful rumor about them… like them being gay, or fat, or weird, or being falsely accused of being something that they are not. As one who went through that ordeal and was able to not do it, I just wish that this kind of thing would stop happening. Life is too fun, and great and awesome, to be tainted by such false accusations. I wish kids who went through the same, and probably worse, scenario like mine would have the strength to stand up, and know that just because they called you something, doesn’t mean you have to be.

Watching all this… it is making me regret that I didn’t look into counselor careers or get a master degree in psychology. I just wish there was something I could do to make teenagers and people learn something about cyberbullying, and how it’s affecting people not just in schools, but even outside of it like in workplaces. ~_~

Time to Act Like A Lady and Think Like A Man

During my late night InterNet surfing splurges (which probably means I’m going to need my night repair cream again… stupid eye bags), I came across an e-Book for Steve Harvey’s “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man”, which was published last year. I saw it once on a rerun episode of Oprah, and although Steve Harvey is an awesome comedian, I realize he is much better at giving advices for women on the psychology of men. XD

Yep, I am pretty much as stumped as any other women are on the psychology of men. But the more I read the book (or rather, the .pdf), the more I realize that men are actually simple creatures. It’s us, the women, who think that they’re complex. Not to mention that it’s us ladies who are the complex creatures.

It made me think of my past, as well as my present relationship with my boyfriend. It made me think about how I’ve been treating men, and how I’m currently treating my man. And the way I see it, I am seriously lacking in a lot of areas. Harhar! I also get the feeling that this might be a good read for the men, since they can get a glimpse of the female mind, and can get sneak peeks at what we women actually think about when it comes to relationships.

Come to think of it, maybe I should buy a hard-copy of this book. I’ll have my boyfriend read it so he can have a glimpse on the stuff I think about in our relationship. XD
