People who love to pity themselves, usually they don't think very much about how others are facing worst problems. Example, I have friends who pity themselves for not able to go out and get drunk all the time, and blame their parents for not giving them enough money. I told them I had a friend who was sold by her father because he wasn't able to pay back the loanshark. I have a friend who worked to the bones handling three jobs because her father does not work, and her three sisters were in school. I know someone who was raped when she was five and then by nine she was a maid to her father's side of the family until she was fifteen. Until now she only thinks of others, not how she feels. One of the teachers in my old college was raped at a knife point by men when he was younger, but he always shine, and the most loved teacher in my college. (This is not a rumor, we did a documentary of him and this came up in the interviews, he went through hell when he was young, but he is one of known fashion designers in my country. You have no idea what this person been through, shunned and eating out of garbage? Just a sprinkle.)
But of course this doesn't change the whining girls. because when you're used to putting yourself first, it's really hard to put yourself in other people's shoes. And very often these people consider themselves a good person JUST because they are nice socially. Because I used to be like that in my teens, so I know.
ANYway, this really was supposed to be an entry about Kimi Ni Todoke. I just had to push that piece of my mind out. Probably I am still thinking of a friend that I abandon. I was always there to save her and was gladly to do it, but the recent disrespecting made me go f* this shit. Right now she's probably waking up with different guys between her legs. No matter what I say won't change her. Social butterflies need to discover things for themselves. I was doing crazy things too, but I know how to differentiate between crazy and plain stupid. I've been with enough friends who sobbed and went for abortions crying "how can I be so stupid?" not to mention those that contracted disease. How cool and crazy are you?
So, back to anime. I recently see somebody I can't remember where, showing off their DVD collection of Index. I hate Index. I don't think she is cute and she is terribly annoying. I finished the first season because I wanted to see if that guy's power development. Of course everyone has the right to like what they like, and to not like what they don't. A lot of people are into Asuna it seems, I don't really care about her character. I follow SAO for it's story, I don't have a fave character in it. But I just watched until ep 12 (where somebody told Kirito they found Asuna in a different game.) Maybe its to early to assume anything :)
