I’ve heard from a few people I should start a blog about my trip over here. The problem I have is, is that I don’t want to come off as negative or really critical of Indian culture. But right now, I’m still getting used to living over here - and frankly, most of what I have to say is not positive. And that’s what they are telling the mission helpers coming over here — talk about the people, the experiences — but don’t mention the conditions. Because the conditions are terrible, they force you to realize how harsh living conditions can really be for those living in India, how lucky and fortunate some people are simply by being born in one country instead of another. How can that not be a part of any experience over here? But it’s what people back home want to hear. They want to hear about how “wonderful” and “uplifting” it is being over here, the “encouraging” interactions with Indians in the villages. So should I make that blog, and tell people what it’s really like, do I write what people want to hear, or do I just avoid the whole issue all together and just write angsty Tumblr posts?
In health class we were given sheets of paper and told to write a message we would want someone of the opposite sex to know
She read some examples
The girls were like: “Hey can you please not treat me like shit”
The boys were like: “Spray tans look ugly I hate when girls wear too much makeup and don’t lead me on.”
On facebook everyone updates about having babies and relationships and how happy life is. Tumblr is full of sarcasm, crazy fandoms, and Dr. Who.
I love you, Tumblr.
Don’t ever change.
