The other day I got told that when climate change becomes a major issue, my generation will be the one to blame. I find that the most ridiculous thing I have every heard. Humanity is whats going to fail the future generations, not my generation. If all the wealthy and developed countries came together and decided ‘hey lets fix the world’ we wouldn’t be in the state that we are. Famine would not be an issue. The reason that america, England and all the other countries don’t pull together, is because they cannot risk these under-developed countries to rise and be on the same level, how else will they have control over their resources? Because that’s what they like to do, they take their resources and leave them with nothing until they’re no use to them.
So I had decided that I would try to blog, I started and then I got busy. But This is definitely something I want to pursue. I’m a writer and I like to write, and I think blogging is a great outlet. However these days I have been much more preoccupied with reading. All I can say is that I have missed reading, I missed reading something other than an academic book that will decide whether I fail or pass my degree. I admit Right now I may be procrastinating just a tiny bit, but stress definitely is not a motivator. But no way in hell do I ever plan on failing. I will beat this academic B*llshit. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for higher education, but sometimes I question the ones who ‘teach’ us. With little to no guidance, and no support. I’m not paying 9 grand per year just to stress and overeat and lose my hair, with no ounce of support from my tutors. I expect better, regardless of how crappy the institution may be. Do not rob me of my money, if you’re not going to support me in getting the highest grade possible and reaching the best of my potential. If my generation is the future, then please give me a bit of help so I we don’t screw up.

I just want to ask one vital question….
When did the western world start to move backwards?
I’m Muslim and I’m British by nationality, but I’m a Pakistani by ethnicity. So I know first hand what it is like to face racism. I know how it is to endure abuse because I follow a particular religion that people don’t educate themselves about and make their own assumptions based on what is portrayed by the media or by the elder generation that hold old views where things were different, when people were ignorant on how the world works and how the world was created to be shared and not colonised, which I admit the British were a big part of (sorry for that on our part)
But we as humans in the western world, we began to evolve. We learned from our mistakes. We realised people of different colour were in fact people and not monkeys and pets or slaves. (though that took a lot of force) we realised that women weren’t just created for sex, tobare children and clean the home. And again that was something that had to be forced. the western world has struggled, but we have moved forward to what we thought was a better future, where we could live as equals. We had to fight for gay rights, which I think has probably been one of the biggest challenges faced for the western world . It was made Illegal to physically abuse children. That meant parents as well as children, hitting children was not to be used as a form Of discipline. At this point I’m sure most of you know where I am getting at. The video of the girl being physically and violently abused by a police officer.
So I am asking again, when did we start to move backwards? Or has our generation not moved forward at all and it’s all just a fascard?
Who else grew up thinking ‘I will never treat my kids the way my parents treated me’ because I know that violence never worked.
Yet people still think it’s okay? As if we didn’t have enough issues to deal with in the world, no wonder so many children are in foster care, no wonder so many children are dead. It’s because people refuse to move forward, we’re not all capable of it. And that’s the sad honest truth. At moments like these I genuinely begin to believe that there is no hope for humanity.
What do you think?
No views on my post yet, Kind of gutted. I was expecting to be blog famous my first day. At this point I do feel like I am talking to myself. However that isn’t all that unusual. Which I shouldn’t be all that happy about.
Lets see…Do I have anything new to report?
Well it was HALLOWEEN on saturday. I love Halloween but it was a shame that I was working, but we had fun. We dressed up and scared the bejeezas out of out customers. Walked into one room and announced I was there for his soul. There were a few tears, but no heart attacks. Only joking, it was all good fun and the customers seemed to enjoy themselves. I do love my old customers. I did get told by one of my favourite customers that he was definitely young enough to giive me a baby 😕 disturbing and probably the scariest moment of the whole weekend.
How about you guys? Any Halloween stories to share?
