Wow, it has been quite some time since I've logged onto Gamespot. For whatever reason I was surfing the internet and I decided to pop over and see what's up. I don't really seem to recognize many of the users in OT or System Wars, where have you all gone? :cry:
There aren't really many updates in my life. All of the snow has melted, meaning no more snowboarding season for me, so I'm kinda bummed about that, but I just bought a long board and after screwing around with it for awhile, I've decided it's the closest feeling to carving that I'm gonna get for the next few months, so I may as well embrace it:P My final year of high school is beginning to wind down, with much drama ensuing. I've already been through two prom dates, yet due to complications or myself messing things up, I've lost them both haha. My depression is getting much better, and I am beginning to start the weaning cycle of getting of my anti-depressants, so that's kinda cool. Other than that, things are going the way they always have been. Still play drums everyday, still smoke green everyday. I've become a lot more eco-aware. Starting to become more conscious about buying stuff with excessive packaging/waste, using recyclable bags, buying those Sun Chips that have 100% compostable bags, etc. I know it's a small difference but hey, if 1000 people think like me then that small difference turns into a larger impact.
It's becoming frighteningly aware to me that our world is rather doomed. There is just so much f****d up stuff in the world, that I've begun to lose all hope. The latest thing to spur this thought of mind is researching more about Omar Khadr. Khadr is the youngest prisoner to be held in Guantanamo Bay, being first taken in when he was 14 years old. He's a Canadian citizen, and his father was a respected political activist in the Middle East. Anyway, American Forces were bombing a village in Afghanistan when a grenade went off, and killed a medic. A young boy was pulled from the rubble of the blast, and was accused of the throwing of the grenade. That was boy was obviously Khadr. New reports are stating that Khadr was laying unconscious under the rubble the entire time, and that it may have been a fellow American soldier who set off the grenade which killed the medic. Anyway, there is no evidence that is solid which suggest Khadr was the one who threw the grenade, yet he has still been held in the detention centre that is notorious for practicing torture techniques for years, with no help from the Canadian government. CSIS agents have actually visited Khadr in the camp, with a video recording being released showing a horribly beaten Khadr crying and screaming to the agent asking for help, claiming to have been tortured numurous times. The agent does nothing. In fact, a recent report has surfaced which indicates that the Canadian government spent upwards of $2 million in order for Khadr to be kept there. WHAT THE F*** CANADA!
