A Millennial's Mind

There's a lot of stuff in here

Monthly Archives: June 2015

It’s that time of the year again… We’ve gained a moment to record in History too!

WHERE MY BODY CLOCK IS 100% BACKWARDS!

If you take the usual time you wake up, say, I don’t know, like 6 or 7am, for a weekday? Well you can pretty much just stick a “pm” on the end of those times rather than the usual “am” because that’s waking up time for me!

Honestly it’s astonishing how quickly you can mess up your sleeping pattern, when you no longer have anything that important to do. Sure, yeah, I have to go to work, but I’m a bartender, that’s evening work anyway! Well,  9 times out of ten it is. Sometimes I start earlier in the day.

I’ve always preferred to work in the evening and through to the middle of the night, because well… That’s just what I do, I like doing that! ASAPScience did a video on this!

It’s an interesting watch!

BUT!

A congratulations is in order as America’s Supreme Court has ruled that homosexual couples can marry NATIONWIDE and not just in individual states! WOO! They can be just as miserable as the rest of us!

I joke, of course. This is a huge step in the right direction, and the many, many countries that are still denying homosexual couples this right to marry, need to follow suit. Sooner rather than later. This is the kind of world people need to be living in! One that is accepting of new concepts, and new ideas.  The world needs to be far more open minded than it is today. The reason I think it should be more open minded is because people are happier when people can accept them for who they are, and what they choose to do. You’re a girl that like dressing up as an alien from Planet Zorp, great good for you! You carry on, don’t let anyone get you down! You’re a guy that likes watching Rom-Coms while eating ice cream while upset, hell man, you carry on, if that is making you feel better then I’m not one to stop you, you go right ahead, man I hope you feel better soon.

Of course, there are some limitation to just how quirky and unique you can be, and before some of you go off on one and start the whole “You can’t stop people being who they are” and that kind of rubbish, here’s why there are certain limitations:

Some aspects of life require a certain level of caution and this can, and usually does, include some kind of restriction on behaviour and also some form of safety clothing. Now you MUST adhere to these rules and guidelines because if you don’t… Well there’s a strong chance you’ll seriously injure yourself, or someone else, or kill yourself or someone else. Now, if you want to be stupid, and ignore these rules and guidelines, then that’s down to you, just don’t be around anyone else when you’re being moronic. It’s one thing to alter your own life, or end it, in such a stupid way, and another to include someone else. It’s not cool to include someone else.

Other instances require a level of professionalism so no, you can’t go up to a guest/customer and say “Sup mate! ‘Ow ya doin’?” because the level of respect in those sentences is so low you’ll never get a scale low enough to measure it. “Yes Sir/Ma’am” is how you address guests/customers, or “Yes Miss” instead of “Ma’am”. BECAUSE IT’S RESPECTFUL!

|| Quick Note: The level of respect that people my age show to those older and/or younger, and to their peers is absolutely disgraceful. I hate meeting people around 16-21 because they’re just so disrespectful of other people, and other people’s stuff. I’m no angel, I’ll admit, but damn. My dad needs a huge pat on the back for how I’ve turned out, I am nowhere near as bad as some, they’re on a whole new level! || 

As I’ve stated above there are some instances where you can’t express yourself to quite the extent you’d like to, but there are good reasons for this! In a professional environment what you’re actually doing is representing someone’s source of income, or your own source of income, and by being a total ********, people will decide not to come back, and therefore that business loses those customers and hence the money they might have spent there.

However, all that being said, your sexuality and who you want to marry is one of those things that should not be controlled by someone else. If you want to marry a man, go right ahead! If you want to marry a woman, go ahead! I cannot believe Governments were ever stopping you in the first place! It’s madness. While I’m aware that’s how people thought back in the days of old, but it’s not how many, and by many I mean an awful lot of, people think today. So I ask again; why were they stopping you in the first place?

Marry who you want, and live a long and happy life. That’s how it should be.

That’s how I hope more and more countries will begin to think like. We’re all human, and we all deserve the right to marry whatever we want to.

Congratulations America! You’ve just made approximately 10.8 million people just that little bit happier.

Also, maybe now we can stop calling it gay marriage, and start calling it…Drum roll please…. Marriage! After all, that’s what it is, and the people participating in a “gay marriage” are people, and people get married. So please, “Sam and Jack had a lovely wedding”, not “a lovely gay wedding”. Also, “Louise and Charlotte had a really romantic wedding”, not “Louise and Charlotte had a romantic gay wedding”

Thank you, and goodnight!

The End Of Yet Another Era

Well, I hope it’s the end anyway!

Today was the last exam for my A-levels, and let me tell you this. The exams I’ve had to sit this year were awful, so so awful. I think somebody said something mean about OCR and they just didn’t get over it, and instead of talking it out just took it all out on us Physics and Chemistry students. Edexcel were (Insert colourful word of choice here) too! As a user of twitter wrote about how we were given the formula for the area of a cone for something that resembled a car door!

How did it go?

Well… I don’t know. I really don’t and that bothers me far more than it should. I worked so hard to get these and get the grades needed for Uni, but I don’t think it’s enough. So I could well end up resitting so I can go to my preferred Uni. Some exams went OK, for instance the resits, for AS, I did weren’t horrendous, they weren’t nice but I think I did well enough, just went A2 started, I don’t know what happened. I struggled through AS sure, but everything started going downhill from the word go for A2. It would seem that I’m just going to have to wait until August to find out whether my worries were justified or just totally weren’t worth it. But that is too far away! So so far away, like August 14th or something like that.

Well I’ll just have to wait and see won’t I!

Just have to keep telling myself, even if my grades are so bad I can’t go to Uni, that it’s not the end of the world, one more year of college and I’ll get to go, so no big deal right? If that what it takes to go then I will have to do that.

But tonight! I’m celebrating the end of the exam series, and the end of my A-levels, because hell, I’ve work hard to get here, even if I don’t think my grades are going to be as good as I know they should be, but I’m celebrating tonight! Going to go out with some friends, crawl back to my friends house, he’s letting me crash there tonight, so all is well on that front.

I believe we’re all off to the beach tomorrow as well. That’ll be fun!

Cheers! It’s been fun, now let’s see about getting into Uni…. When I get back from the beach tomorrow of course!

Have a nice day!
