DULCE DE LECHE

I just had ice-cream so I'm very happy. If I ruled a sovereign nation, I would make ice-cream the staple food and my land's happiness ratings would soar through the roof. I fucking love ice-cream! I just watched this video, and it's so stupid but it makes me so happy. (Also, the animations are actually so well done, I feel like I got all my money's worth --- it's obviously free, it's on Youtube.)


These are its lyrics:
what up, world?
it's your boy, just one of the guys down here
well, I could be more specific
uh, I'm a human, and I just wanted to, you know,
for the sake of all of us earthlings out there,
just wanted to say

we love the Earth, it is our planet
we love the Earth, it is our home
we love the Earth, it is our planet
we love the Earth, it is our home

hi, I'm a baboon
I'm like a man, just less advanced
and my anus is huge
hey, I'm a zebra
no one knows what I do, but I look pretty cool
am I white or black?
I'm a lion cub, and I'm always getting licked (meow!)
how's it going? I'm a cow (moo!)
you drink milk from my tits (moo)
I'm a fat, fucking pig
I'm a common fungus
I'm a disgruntled skunk, shoot you out my butthole
I'm a marijuana plant, I can get you fucked up
and I'm Kanye West

we love the Earth, it is our planet
we love the Earth, it is our home
we love the Earth, it is our planet
we love the Earth, it is our home
we love the Earth

ba-dum-da-dum-dum, ba-dum-da-di
we are the vultures, feed on the dead
we're just some rhinos, horny as heck
I'm just a giraffe, what's with this neck?
hippity-hop, I'm a kangaroo
I hop all day, up and down with you
I'm an elephant, I got junk in my trunk
what the fuck? I'm a clam!
I'm a wolf, howl!
I'm a squirrel, lookin' for my next nut
and I'm a pony, just a freak horse, heh-heh-heh
but, uh, c'mon, get on
giddee-up, let's ride
I'm HPV, don't let me in
I'm a koala and I sleep all the time
so what? It's cute

we love you, India
we love you, Africa
we love the Chinese
we forgive you, Germany
Earth, it is our planet (it's so tiny)

I'm a man (hello?)
can you hear me? (anyone out there? hello?)
I've trudged the Earth for so damn long
and still don't know shit (what's going on?)
I hope it's not a simulation
give each other names like Ahmed and Pedro
and, yeah, we like to wear clothes, girls still look beautiful
and it covers up our human dick, eat a lot of tuna fish
but these days, it's like we don't know how to act
all these shootings, pollution, we under attack on ourselves
like, let's all just chill, respect what we built
like look at the internet! It's cracking as hell
fellas, don't you love to cum when you have sex?
and I heard women orgasms are better than a dick's
so what we got this land for? what we gotta stand for?
love, and we love the Earth
oh, yeah, baby, I love the Earth
I love this planet

hey, Russia, we're cool
hey, Asia, all of you, c'mon
every one of you from the plains to the Sahara
let's come together and live
우-우-우리는 지구를 사랑해요
amamos la tierra
我们爱地球

c'mon everybody, I know we're not all the same
but we're living on the same Earth
(have you ever been to Earth?)
everyone who is listening has been to Earth, Ariana
we're not making music for aliens here
(are we gonna die?)
you know what, Bieber? we might die
I'm not going to lie to you
I mean, there's so many people out here who don't think
global warming's a real thing
you know? we gotta save this planet
we're being stupid
unless we get our shit together now
All the different artistes (Ariana/Bieber/Adam Levine/Kris Wu etc) are featured as animals or things on Earth and it's so dumb I love it. I completely second Leonardo DiCaprio and I think this is now my favorite song ever.

You know, I used to always hate guys whose bios are just "here for a good time, not a long time" on Tinder or whatever dating app. Guess what my bio is now. Fuck this shit. We don't have a long time, we can at least make it a good time, right?




Also, I don't get how my phone can take photos with a depth-of-field to put DSLRs to shame, and my MacBook (2017) Photo Booth still takes photos that look like they were taken by a model of potato. POTATO I tell you.

I'm out, bitches.

IN MY HEAD

My sister just received a call that her appeal to go back to school was approved. She'd been automatically removed due to failing the same module twice, and her attendance was poor. My sister has had anxiety and depression, and she hasn't taken well to any therapist she's seen, so she hasn't gone consistently, and when faced with difficult situations like a module she's already failed, she would tend to avoid it rather than put in more effort for it. Last week, we went to talk to a panel of her course mentors and teachers, and I had to do most of the talking 'cos Lyssa is an introvert, I had to bring across her thoughts so that they would understand her. So they would trust that she wants this, and that she would henceforth be more consistent with therapy and that her drive and grit would be sustainable until she graduates. The funny thing is the module she failed is a Math one, and my best friend is an engineer and could and would have helped her all the way. I think sometimes we are too scared to accept our weaknesses and flaws when there is no need to be. We all have weaknesses and need help, even if they're all in different aspects of our lives.

I told my best friend Han that the appeal was successful, and I wish I would get the same news for my own school application. Han said pseudo mom duties really suit me. Just yesterday in Homecoming I read the line "you can't be what you can't see", a line I really believe in. It's mostly used to explain why women don't succeed in certain industries, like STEM, because they don't see their women peers doing it or having done it. You can use it as an excuse not to do something, or you can use it as the reason you do something, so that the people after you will have less of an excuse. In my head, I have this vision of setting up an almost sort-of halfway home, for kids who don't feel safe or accepted in their homes. It could be due to believing in a different religion or no religion at all, it could be due to poor performance in school, it could be for kids who have failing mental health issues who are not being advocated for properly by their parents, for people who are exploring their fluid genders and sexualities. I'm not sure if I will ever get the capital to set this up, but I have this vision. Even though my mom was not equipped to be the right mother for me through my miscarriage situation, I don't want to excuse myself that I would not be a good mother because I didn't see the values I can emulate from my own birth mom. I want to foster and advocate for surrogate children and even adults who are being failed, and I want to be the responsible adult despite what the system has allocated me. There are too many people who don't feel safe and supported in their natural birth homes, and they're not being allowed to succeed where they naturally would. You can't be what you can't see, and I want to be the person they can and they do see, so they really do become whoever it is they want to be.

This is why I applied to study psychology or women and gender studies, so I can understand people and perhaps advise and counsel them better. I want this halfway house to be the family they perhaps never got but rightfully deserve. I'm thinking there are this type of shelters in the US, but I don't think it's as prevalent in Singapore, but I'm not sure.
