Hello again for today!
So I wanna tell you something :)
I got a new assignment for writing class which is to write about some current issue (global, local or school related) that we, students, have a strong opinion about… These articles that we write will be posted on my school online journal and will be there for like forever lol
I have decided to write an article about ignorance. I am gonna start off by saying how I believe that we, humans, are born very ignorant but should attempt to end every day by being a bit less ignorant. And this is achieved by exposure, openness and understanding…
My main example for the piece I am writing is about homosexuality. So, I am going to write about how, me, personally have been ignorant about homosexuality for what’s almost 14 years of my life and how most people back home and around me now (mainly, in the developing countries) are also this badly (and even more) ignorant….
I will explicitly talk about how I feel that I am living in a very narrow-minded environment (after having that school-wide presentation about homosexuality, during which my fellow school mates asked DUM questions and made STUPID and OFFENSIVE comments that totally pissed me off)
I am so excited to finish this writing piece!
The teacher said we can ask for our articles to be submitted anonymously, if we desire, but I don’t think I will send mine like that. I am gonna sign it with pride and with my full name on top! lol
I do understand the implications though. Some will wonder why on earth, amongst all possible topics that concern me I chose to write about ignorance and take the example of homosexuality as the main point of my article.... bla bla bla
But you know what? I don’t give a damn shit about what those IGNORANT people will think.
At the end of the day, no matter what they would think of me, this will remain a thought that they cannot really confirm nor refute (unless they find my blog lol). Moreover, it is my opinion and they’d better respect it. I am so sick of there naivety; its time to make it clear to them how bad they are and how wrong they think!
Actually, I had many ideas in mind to write about but my teacher encouraged me to pick this controversial topic because she thinks it's kinda needed at my school (for people to wake up! lol)
(By the way this teacher is cool, fun, friendly, young, sarcastic and open-minded : )
Gosh! I have so much work to do during this weekend. Beside the tons of homework, my team and I are launching our community service project tomorrow in front of the whole school and some guests. I am kinda nervous but at least I am not doing much public speaking coz I am more in charge of the direction of projects and the finances; so I do the calculation and the organization and my other team members would do the actual talking during the presentation. I will do talk though - will explain our financial plan
Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend y’all!
