Welcome In + Let’s Get Started.

This is my second blog; http://www.phoenixquill.wordpress.com is my first.  That one’s for news and information about literature.  This one here is more for my random thoughts about how completely insane the world is.  Ranting and raving is what I’m good at.

So, here’s my thoughts for today:

1. Why do politicians all resort to slander of their opponents?  Ad hominem attacks don’t make them look any better, and frankly, it’s a sign that they’re desperate.   Personally, I’d rather support a politician who relies on his own policies and strategies rather than poking fun at other candidates.  It’s a weak and cowardly way to gain support.

2.  I’m in high school.  I’ve always been one of the “good kids” in school.  Always did my work, never got in trouble, you know the sort.  So, why is it that when the good kids slip up, it’s always much worse than when the “bad kids” do something wrong?  Teachers tend to make a bigger deal out of smaller things when you’re a good kid.  Maybe they’re just used to the bad kids?  I’ve wondered about this since elementary school.  Even the good kids aren’t perfect.  We need to make mistakes, too.

  1. I am the same age as you, haha. Yeah, I’m one of the good kids. If you mean “slip up”, you mean “misbehave”, then it’s probably because the bad kids do it for attention while the good kids misbehave for actual reasons, such as if they disagree with a teacher’s opinion (as well as not having much respect for the teacher).

    Speaking of respect, I hate teachers that demand respect without giving any themselves. My French teacher is a perfect example. Why can’t she see that respect is a two-way road?
