Human Emotions x

I was on Facebook the other day and I came across a friends status that went like this :

We're all walking around with these glossy eyes . "I'm tired," we say . But you know what ? It's bullshit. Yes , we are tired , but it's not all from lack of sleep . We are tired of waking up with nothing to look forward to , tired of going to bed exhausted after doing a million things we find no enjoyment doing . We're tired of this void , this emptiness that looms over us even though our days are packed . We're tired of the lonliness that presses down on us even though we're surrounded by dozens of people . So why can't we just say it ? Humans are so afraid to look into each other's eyes and say, "I am unhappy , I am broken , I am hopeless and fallible." We've been conditioned to associate pain with weakness , sadness with coldness , lonliness with unworthiness , difference with disease , as if these feelings are contagious , as if ambivalence is something not to be felt but to be feared . Well , I say screw all of that . Screw forced smiles and polite handshakes and I'm fine , thankyou . Screw all the fear of crying in public place , screw the fake chipper voice , screw the lies we spit to cover up our problems . We are humans . We are meant to feel . To feel everything and to feel it openly . We are not mental - we are flesh and bone . Our boiled blood courses through out cold , clammy hands . We are intricate and beautiful and we should never hide our human parts , because if we do , then what's left to show ?

As I read it , I thought how true it all is . Us humans , especially in New Zealand , we hardly ever show emotion , because we're scared that we'll get judged by it . Waht are your thoughta on this ? Do you agree or disagree ? Why ?

I'm curious to know how other humans feel because some people aren't afraid to show their emotion , no matter where they are . I admire these people , their strength to overcome judgements and expectations of others .

I also came across a video .
Watch it . It's so inspirational . This woman is so strong . She gives me hope .

And I've decided that I may start blogging about more personal stuff again , sometime soon , because I think I'm finally ready to be myself and say what I want again , after all the shit that went down last time I did that on my blog .

Kony 2O12 ...

Alright , so if you haven't heard of Joseph Kony , watch this

For those of you who can't be bothered to take 3O minutes of your time to watch this video, here's the basics.
Joseph Kony abducts children for his army (LRA). He makes them mutilate peoples faces, and forces them to kill their own parents.
He turns the males into soldiers for his army, and the females into sex slaves.

I'm in two minds about it, for one, I think it's a scam.
But the other, this kind of stuff does happen overseas.

If we ignore it, does that make us just as bad ?
Because if this is all true, this man is sick.
And how would we feel if that was our children ? Our children holding guns to us because this man is forcing them to. Our daughters being raped over + over .

I'm not going to donate money to the cause, simply because I do kind of lean towards it being a scam, so I'll donate my time to them instead.
Here's how
I think it'll be fun to go there, see how many people turn up who have said that they'll be there, and how many people actually are keen to support this cause.

What are your thoughts on the whole thing ?

National Camp 2O12 :) ♥

CanTeen National Camp 2O12 .
Best 6 days I've had in a loooooong time , maybe even my whole life . It was AMAZING !
I got to see a bunch of my friends , and I met a heap of new people too .
The members at Rainbows End . Day Three ♥
Every single person I met over last week , is simply amazing . The love that we all have for each other is greater than some of us have for our families . We're best friends , a different sort of family . As Georgie said , "There are three kinds of love in this world . There's that of a boy/girlfriend . That of a family . And then there's the CanTeen love ." 
I completely agree with this , I love my CanTeeners so much . I need them so much .
They offer support , friendship , love + so much more . I miss you guys more than words can explain .
I love the way that if you want a hug , all you have to do is ask . If you want support , there's always someone there + willing to offer it . If all you want is a friend , the CanTeeners are there .
There's heaps of bad things about having a sibling who went through cancer , but CanTeen is that thing that makes the bad ones not so hard to handle . ♥

I'd love to tell you blog readers about National Camp , but words actually can't describe how amazing it was . So I'll post some photos instead :)

Members wore purple to Rainbows End , Staff wore Green . We took up the whole ride :)

Staff + Member photo ♥

Waiting in line for the Power surge :)
Last Day :(
So those are just a few photo's , there's a couple of thousand that were taken :)
I'm leaving my home town in two days . I am SO excited ! But also kinda nervous . It's going to be so good to have a change though , and be closer to my Best Friends . ♥
