School Camps

Welcome, today I will be talking about camps. Like how they build character, confidence and charisma in ones self. I recently went to a camp. It was from Monday to Wednesday (28th to 30th September 2009). Now, i can start babbling about what I did, like what happened or whatever was going on in that camp. But I wont, firstly because, its interesting, secondly because its only for the people I know and care and thirdly because I know you don’t care.

So onto the main subject, what am I talking about? simple..

Whenever someone goes to camp, what is the first thing they think of? ‘Going somewhere with their mates without parental supervision’ Well, this may not be the case for everyone, because everyone is different, but this is the typical response. However, there is more to it..

When you go onto a camp, you interact, you communicate and most of all, socialize. You are with your peers from morning to night, and everyone shares their routines with each other. You help each other during activities, This results in teamwork and a strong friendship. When eating at lunch, you talk and this is another way in which friendships are grown and or strengthened.

I guess I’ve left this short. But i only wanted to say that camps are important…very important. So when your next school camp comes, please dont reject it, its an experience that you will only get a few times in you life.

Absurd GREEN DAY Fan-Comments on Facebook

Facebook is like one of the most popular social websites ever.  People use it to upload pictures, write on walls, and update statuses on their daily lives.  Facebook also has fan pages where all the updated events of celebrities are posted.

Well – everywhere– there’s always a place where fans get to “stalk” their favorite celebrities/bands.  I stalk Green Day’s profile. 🙂  Big fan, big fan I am. 😛  I would sit for hours looking at their newest fotos and reading their fans’ wall posts.  Some of them are cute, some sooo funny – but some just seriously TICK me off.

Well here, I’ll show you what I’m trying to say 🙂

No. 1:  Opportunity grasper:

Ridiculous and so uncalled for.  “If you love green day so much you should add me as your friend..” ?

  • Are you really that desperate?
  • What does loving Green Day have to do with being her friend?
  • So all her friends on her FB list are Green Day fans?

Note: Green Day became famous for their music.  Please don’t take advantage of that.

No. 2:  Give-n-must-receiver:

Hmmm from the start. Ahhh come on.  Everybody says that.

*   How old were you when you started “following” them?

  • What if I said I was the one who has been with them from the start, and then there’s conflict between us?
  • Ok even if you were.  Why would you ask them for sth in return?This really gets me going because I’ve been Green Day’s fan since 10 years old and never had I ever thought of wanting sth in return.  Showing my support/love for them is the best feeling I’ve ever had in my life.Note:  you do realize that the conflict would be massive for there are kazillions, katrillions of Green Day lovers out there. 🙂No. 3:  Dis-believer:3957587293_54afbd6a16

 

  • Is this a trick question? 😀
    Is he expecting the “no” oryes” answer?
  • Is he even a fan? 🙂Note: I don’t think they would make a wall (Facebook wall that is)  for us to comment just for nothing.  Fans mean alot to celebs, it’s just – we’re too much for them to show each one at a time.  They already do that by performing for us.  No matter where it is.

No. 4:  Haterrrs

  • Woaw woaw mistuhAnti-social?
  • Did he seriously add Green Day just to write this comment?
  • Maybe an attention seeker?Haters himself!!!  Different people, different taste of  music. -.-  Need of fighting?  Woah.. I was very fustrated when I read this.  It made my head explode with anger.  And who knows what fustration can do to someone…Note: Punk rock and Country are totally different types of music.THE ONES I HATE MOST!!!3957587313_1cdd15e2b3

    “Keep up…”

  • Is he telling a rolling stone rock star band to keep up the great music?

In other words, people tend to ask/request alot and forget about Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt themselves.  Do they ever think about asking them how they feel?  Something as simple as “Hello, how are you guys?”..or..”bet you’re tired from the concert!”?

Don’t expect a reply, because they’re way to busy rawking the world “with” you.

I know I have strong feelings when it comes to sharing opinions, and people might think about how ridiculous I am, noticing something so unworthy such as these comments.  But to me, these little things could become much bigger later on. 🙂  Maybe?
