Crash Course in Adolescence

May 15th, 2010

From 13 to 24 in one day:

Take away the angst, revolving bouts of disappointment and your contempt for the human race

Do the dress rehearsal, put your game face on and genuinely engage others.

Listen to your elders while silently thinking or discreetly giving a big middle finger. In america you aren't free to roam about the cabin; you have to say hi, how are you when you couldn't careless because you want something or you have a gimmick to sell. I can't believe my own bullshit and don't want to ever be disingenuine.

People have predisposed notions about people from other cultures:

Example: this afternoon I sat at a table full of Brits who kept expressing their opinions about the Germans and I said, I hadn't really noticed the behavior. I don't judge people on their appearance or culture; I do however judge them on whether or not they are nice to me; or if they can carry on an interesting conversation.

I'm not easily pleased, amused or interested but will give almost anyone without an ulterior motive a chance to say their piece before deciding whether or not to continue having that person in close proximity.


The Fence

It's not a choice of whether or not I'm on it anymore.

Recap of the trip so far

Paris

This was my 2nd time here, the first time I was here I didn't have a very good time. It was the summer of 2003 and there was a heat wave going on. It was my Aunt's Ex husband (Father of my cousins), his girlfriend and my two boy cousins; I was at the gates of Pere Lachaise and I didn't get to go in. They said it was time to eat so we went to an Italian restaurant, his gf was sitting directly across from me; all of a sudden she looks dead at me and face plants in her plate. Suffice to say, she was then rushed to the hospital and my trip to Paris was completely ruined.

Going back for the 2nd time, the only complaint I have is that its a bit more commercialized than I would like it to be but okay. It still has a lot of pretty buildings and history. It is a lot bigger than I remembered it being as well, it definitely would take about a week to explore it fully. Also the 3 hour bus ride through Normandy wasn't so bad, from La Havre; lots of history and I wasn't aware that the word Paris was Gaelic and vikings inhibited Normandy.

Price Perception #3 Most Expensive city in the world
Cafe au lait: 3 Euros
Meal: 30 euros = ~38 US Dollars



London (Didn't make Top 10 list of expensive cities)

This was my second time here as well; the first time I was here, I was with my Aunt Chantal, Cousin Anthony and Uncle Phillippe and his gf at the time. It rained most of the time we were there, the food was terrible and you had to pay to use the toilets! We took a double decker bus and were on top so we got rained on heh...

The 2nd time was much better! It was a stunning 23 C, I took the shore excursion from Dover so it was a 1.5 hours of bus travel each way. Lots of traffic getting out of London and we were the last bus back, luckily on shore excursions they have to wait for you! This time the food was really good; I had veggie sushi @ Pret Manger (which they also have in NYC) and free wifi.

Cafe au lait:1.90 pounds = 2.18 Euros
Carry out quick lunch: 3.45 pounds = 3.97 Euros

Bremerhaven / Bremen

I didn't really explore this at all and just used the cheaper internet at the cruise terminal 5 Euros in comparison to 10 on the ship. But if I ever go back I'll go to the Climate Zone (which I believe its called) which has every season/climate in the world; sounded really amazing from what my Canadian friends said :)

Bremen all I can think of is the children's story; Bremen town musicians; since I had the set of books my Aunt Chantal gave me when I was a kid.

cOPENhagen (spelt like this on purpose)#4 Most Expensive City in the World

I really fell in love with this place for several reasons:
1- its so clean!
2- people are so helpful and nice (a taxi driver actually pulled over to tell us which direction to go)
you can literally ask anyone for directions and they will help you
3- the food is good
4- the people are pleasant to look at!
(although they kept taking pictures of me while I was there so maybe I'm exotic to them; and I'll end up in some Danish magazine without knowing!)

Here is where the Sticker shock comes in

Cafe black: 28 Kroners= 3.7 Euros + Taxes
Cafe au lait: 34 Kroners= 4.5 Euros + Taxes
(I'm going to smuggle my own creme in next time!)

Admission to the Ice Bar: 22 Euros (drink is included)
Admission to Tivoli Gardens: 95 Kroners= 13 Euros
Cheap Rent: 1,000 Kroners= 134 Euros
Good Salary: 20,000 Kroners= 2,687 Euros

For the curious here is the list of Top 10 Internationally Pricey Cities

1- Toyko
2- Osaka-Kobe
3- Paris
4- Copenhagen
5- Oslo
6- Zurich
7- Helsinki
8- Frankfurt
9- Geneva (Switzerland)
10- Singapore

Next stops are Stockholm, Tallin, St.Petersburg and Berlin.

Open your Eyes and your Legs

Funny that a discussion about adultery, turned open relationships, got my panties in a bunch...

I saw this misinformed woman and her generalized statement and had to shed some light for the sake of better sexual education.

D -youre saying that, because youre a guy. women don't like that crap here in the US either.. it's got nothing to do with
being conservative! lol

the only women who would allow for an open relationship are the types
that are slutty and/or have no respect for themselves. they end up
doing that to please the man, but inside, they are truly miserable.
fuck that noise! i would never date a man and have an open
relationship. never have, never will.

Immediately I think, fine I understand due to your religious, moral, ethical views and emotional needs this isn't your ideal relationship (Completely understandable) but if anything a woman who is aware of her sexual needs and desires is in no way a dirty slut who doesn't respect themselves and are not miserable. Any woman who does anything for a man, instead of for herself is going to be miserable, whether its a closed relationship or not.



D- i just believe that if you are truly in love with someone, and if things are not rocky (the exception being rough phases
of time where someone might do something they regret), there is really no need to want more than one partner, because they're all you need. even when things get stale, real love means you want to work things
out with that person. i also believe that feminism has destroyed everything & increased the
divorce rate in this country. things used to be so much more balanced
in the past. because people had more definite gender roles & showed
more respect to one another.

WOAH seriously, let's not confuse sex and love... TWO Completely different things. Some people are not capable of separating sex from their emotions again (understandable). Also I am really over this conclusion we are brought up to believe that ONE person can DO EVERYTHING to make us happy. Let's be realistic, its highly unlikely you'll be with the same person your entire life, it does happen but not often. Also couples who have kinky sex stay together, are better emotionally and physically bonded. My friend just told me her parents have been married for 40 years and she accidently found their collection of sex toys.. sooo there ya go!

Why attack feminism? do you even know what it means to really be a feminist. I don't subscribe labels as readily as I did in my earlier years as I know the responsibilities of the titles... but being a feminist is essentially about sexual freedom and personal empowerment and that has nothing to do with the high divorce rates. I don't think this woman is very old, old enough to even know how it was "back in the day". What is great about having defined gender roles, just because I'm a woman doesn't mean I even want to be SUSIE HOMEMAKER, its 2010 more females are bringing in more of the income, are more independent. I don't need nor want to be an at home wife, I have greater ambitions than that. It's fine for those of you, who don't aspire to something more than that, but do me this little favor... Don't go to finishing school! How is this woman complaining about the undefinable gender roles that society has set into place for us when does she realize woman weren't allowed to vote? were property of men for years and rape was a crime only because woman were property? so the good 'ole days they were not!
As far as respect goes you let people treat you the way you let them treat you, simple as that. Don't blame feminism, gender roles or any other nonsensical excuse for disrespect.



Me: @ No the types of woman who have
open relationships are the ones who are independent and busy and don't
need to commit to one man or one woman. Just because you don't
personally believe in it, doesn't mean it doesn't work.

D- im sure there are some exceptions, but ive noticed
that most women who have open relationships end up broken hearted..
and the ones that don't end up broken hearted, end up with chlamydia.
its not just about believing in it, its about observations.

It's not a question of whether its closed or open its the quality of the relationship and the people involved in it. There are tons of people in closed relationships that get their hearts broken and end up with chlamydia because their partner lied and cheated on them, in a healthy open relationship, there is no need to lie since its all on the table. You let everyone know before you get involved where they stand, so there is no miscommunication and obviously if its not for them you move on.


D- plus that doesnt make sense.. if those women are so
independent & don't have time for a relationship, then how does it
give them more time efficiency to have sex with more than one person.
doesn't that involve even more dates, more talking to people because
its not just one person, and more time?
i also dont think anyone "needs" to commit to one person. they usually
just "want" to do that..

D- i work 100 hour weeks at times and have a career. if i
had more than one sex partner, i couldnt imagine that my schedule
would be more open to have time for myself & other important things.

Me- well of course, it can be more time and it depends on the schedule. Personally I've been in open relationships
currently and the person I'm with isn't a liar and so it works out. Neither one of us is looking to get married or have kids
and we aren't constantly looking for other people to screw but its something we do. I also think statistically
lots of people get cheated on and personally I've never really been able to be 100% committed to anyone but Im upfront about it.

Me- I agree if you are looking for an emotionally
involved relationship, unless you've been married to that person for
years, being open is most likely not for you. I'm not very emotional
when it comes to relationships as I think there are so many more
important priorities to focus on but I'm not blind to my needs and if
someone interests me I don't want to deny that need because I'm with
someone who wants to "possess, control or be jealous".

I'm upset that our society is so skewed as to what our bodies tell us and what "god" might think of us, or worse our neighbors.
If you think because I'm aware of my needs and I indulge them that I'm a slut great, because I bet I get off more than you. And if you are paying that much attention to my sex life you probably don't have one of your own.

repost from Art of Becoming Integrated

You can lie to others but not to yourself

Define Honesty as you see it:

A. To tell the complete truth without leaving any details out
B. To not be misleading
C. To tell every detail possible, whether its necessary or not

I am going with B because, its impossible to tell the complete truth sometimes and on occasion one does not need to tell someone unnecessary details.

Classic Example: Girl asks Boy, do I look fat in these pants?

This question puts the Boy in the exact situation where you make a liar out of them. Girl why would you put them in this position, because you know deep down whether or not you look fat in the pants.

You either
a. want them to lie to you
b. be honest with you (but then get upset when they do)
c. either way this is a trap

The smarter man will refuse to answer, distract them from the question or compliment them (since thats clearly what they wanted to begin with)


Did you do something wrong? Who really answers Yes to this question, I think anyone whether or not how "honest" they are if they can get out of trouble by skewing the facts or truth they will snap up the opportunity and be gracious.


As better defined by my current male counterpart: men are plagued by a need to either fight to the death, fight to defend honor or to let unspeakable acts occur as they watch because it's the better option.

Do they want to protect and defend their lady? Yes
Do they want to fight to the death? If they have to, Yes
but if its completely avoidable No
Do they want to sit idly by and watch you suffer? No

I've known so many weak, insecure men in my days; hell I've dated nearly enough. It's not that I don't want a strong, competent partner, its just hard to find. Hard to find one who doesn't want to possess me or devour me and spit me out once they have accomplished what they needed to. One who doesn't want to destroy the essence of my being, its not always conscious behavior but rather due to their lack of self-actualization. They are painfully unaware of their self destructive behavior and its impending doom that the surrounding environment spirals down with them.

To be fair, plenty of women have are pretty insecure also, hence why they seek constant image approval from their mates, society etc. Trust me everyone would be a lot happier if they didn't give a shit what people thought of them. When you decide that whatever is popular, current etc, has no bearing on your own life, you are free to create your own world in which to live and become a part of. Self-Sufficiency is truly bliss.

That being said, alternative subcultures are getting an F right now. I remember 5 years ago what a difference there was compared to now. Whatever happened to supporting your friends endeavors? Whatever happened to being creative, inspiring, ambitious and productive?

What is so cool about being jaded? ineffectual? unaffected? consumerist? capitalist? starving artist? hipster?
Hipster by the way is defined as a subculture in which has NO political views, a terribly ugly fashion sense and the first subculture to just accept marketing/consumerism entirely too well.

He= Eeyore I=Tigger


Eeyore+Tigger= Odd sort of unbalance, hot sex, good friendship but ≠ lifelong partner


Eeyore is a donkey and for some he is their favorite Pooh character amongst all the others. He is a blue-gray donkey, about 3-years in age and stands 18 inches tall & 27 inches in length. He is originally like the other Pooh character; stuffed with sawdust. His appearance is highlighted by a small light pink bow on his tail. He is an intelligent animal but tends to keep to himself. Eeyore is a extremely gloomy donkey and has a very bad habit of losing his tail! Mostly, he tends to depend on his friends to find his lost tail for him and thereafter Christopher Robin fixes his tail using a drawing pin. What he simply adores is that his friends remember him on his birthday and celebrates it with him. He often says “Thanks for noticin’ me” and “Oh, well”.


Tigger is a very Bouncy Animal and resembles a tiger. He is always in an electrifying & exuberant mood and loves to bounce, bounce and bounce. He is 23 inches tall and his most standout feature is his springy tail. His character is easily recognizable by the black & orange stripes, a springy tail, and a long chin, beady eyes which all mix well into his bouncy and fun loving personality. He is a bouncy, pouncy, flouncy and a trouncy creature that is always looking to make the most out of what life has to offer. The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is that "I'm the only one!" Tigger likes to bounce a lot, "cause that is what Tiggers do best." His favourite food is the extract of malt but is known to be an extremely fussy eater. He takes a lot of pleasure in being able to “unbounce” some of the other animals in the 100 Acre Wood.
