When I read about what these bills and acts were planning on doing I completely lost something in myself. Probably my sanity. My passion leaked a bit from my chest at the idea of US letting THEM censor US like we are puppets in their little industry designed to kneel and nod at their beckon and call. Why would they do this? What do they expect to gain by censoring one of the MOST IMPORTANT amendments that was ever made?- so important, in fact, that it was made to be the 1st!
They claim that this is a way to “protect” copyright infringement… like hell they are. They are basically protecting the “Big names” (i.e celebs, musicians, etc) and their precious hollywood industry. I wander, don’t some of the musicians post their music own music themselves on Youtube? ( i.e VevoBeyonce, VevoBieber, VevoUsher, VevoMichealJackson, etc) Are they censored too? Hmm, who knows.
I never believed in having to paying ludicrous prices to listen, or read, or watch its stillness with my head cocked to the side- someones hard work and art, I never believed in having to pay for this. You did not have to pay your muse to make you write it, you should be proud enough that people want to see what you have to say; listen to your poetry with the melody in the background; observe your painting in silence. Yes, yes I know if we didn’t fine everything with that dreadful price tag what would the artist get in return? A damn true to heart fan that’s what! An admire of their talent!
I actually like websites like Youtube and…well I’ve never heard of any other website other than Youtube that is run the way it’s run but you get what I’m saying- I like websites like Youtube because they encourage freedom of speech and creativity. They allow us to rightfully listen to music for free and yet they probably pay a price to allow us this luxury.
Some of you wander if the websites are using us to keep them alive and active: why would you ask this if you, yourself, use theses websites for your own voice?- for your own talents and observations, your opinions? I do not think we should have to spend half a decade in prison because we played Single Ladies in our background… I am fighting this and I hope you will too, even with that doubt in your heart. I will not see our first amendment twisted in to a scheme by the government.
Join the blackout Wednesday, January 18th. Or annoy the hell out of the House with hundreds of tweets consisting of your hatred toward the bills.
I have just recently come down with something (flu?- cold?) I’m not sure what it is only that is inflicting me with an itchy throat, runny nose, loads of coughing, and making sleepy (though that could be the Benadryl). I haven’t typed a word since- *looks at papers*- since I don’t know!
I’m so behind it’s ridiculous!
But!- there is a little bit of good news.
I’m doing quite well on my subject test practice test so yaaay!
Okay fine no cheer- but I’m super happy!
I mean I NEVER had a history lesson and I’m doing pretty well.
I think that deserves some well time!
I hate being sick.
But I am feeling a little bit better and my mind has decided to make itself available again.
So I’m adding to my story as much as I can before I fall asleep ( again) or until I just can’t think of anything else.
Wish me luck!
Or, you know, list a few drugs that could possibly knock this sucker out of me.
I’ve been home schooled my entire life and never really had to balance out several subjects.
For example: I don’t have a science yet and the stuff I do know is probably from TV. But!- in a bout three months I will be studying for CLEP …Biology?-Chemistry?- anyway one of those. I did not have a History lesson until recently and I did not have a formal or really any type of English studies, but I did study English seriously( at the beginning of this year). I had mathematics and language arts ( basically grammar and vocabulary) and that was about it. It wasn’t exactly arduous to balance out those two subjects.
So!- you will know what I’m talking about when I say that I am getting stressed the hell out!
I have two SAT subject test I’m studying for plus the SAT and I’m struggling with the math part. And I have zero confidence about my essay. I have to look over my brother’s studies because apparently he does not think it is relevant! (he’s twenty).
NaNoWriMo is hardly soothing the tension in my neck at the moment, as you can probably tell by now with my little out burst.
I really reaaaaally want to tell WriMo to kick rocks but I’m kinda liking the challenge and hey, according to my mother “I’m gonna have to learn how to manage this stuff when I get to college”.
Who am I to complain!?!
So it is day three and I currently have 1875 words so far. I have a system to how many words I know I can have in a certain amount of time so I’m not that worried.
I mean, face it, I was planning on taking those subject test over again in June. The subject test can bear with me on this.
Oh don’t worry your pretty head about me and my delusions…
How are you guys doing in NaNoWriMo?- have you dumped it yet? or are you still working on that stubborn plot? Or are you right on schedule and possibly ahead! And the most important question…
Are you having F.U.N?!?
