I keep hearing rich people ask why they are hated for their wealth. Like this: Ah, yes. This does make me rage. I am told quite frequently that I should be working a few full time jobs to pay for school. I should not have any student loans, I should be paying for all of …

Nuclear Waste – An Open Letter

September 29th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Journal - (4 Comments)

Jeff responded “I did take out the garbage!!!! I swear!!!” and it was a surprisingly accurate response to what just happened. You see, John, from my Slap blog, did break up with his girlfriend Jane. They broke up yesterday, and he was so excited to go clubbing this weekend and maybe even go back to …

Reasons to Hate Gay People

September 26th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Politics | Religion - (6 Comments)

People have a lot of excuses to be homophobic. Obviously, it’s a fear (phobia, dur) but of what?

I’ve never had a problem with it, because…  I’ve always figured …

I Have a Thing for Assassins

September 25th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Gaming - (3 Comments)

My last blog was more serious than I like to be, so… something more cheerful sounds good for tonight, yes? Like killing people and climbing cathedrals to dive off into hay. ASSASSINI! My first encounter with Assassin’s Creed was when my ex showed me a trailer for the first one — he said it would …

September 11th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Journal | Religion - (2 Comments)

Several people have asked me what sort of spiritual or religious beliefs I have, and it’s always been difficult for me to explain them. They don’t quite fit any specific belief system except for my own, and make sense more than anything else I’ve read or heard. There are no rules, firstly. I believe in …

Religion Is and Is Not

I originally posted this a year and a half ago on the IGN blogs, but I ended up deleting everything from there. I’ve edited it a bit, as well… My grandmother was planning on being a nun until she met my grandfather. When she met him, though, plans changed. She fell madly in love with …

The Only Person to Recognize my Tattoos

September 5th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Journal - (1 Comments)

Yesterday, I sold my netbook. The guy that I sold it to — we’ll call him J — agreed to meet me at the Starbucks up the street from my house. He had essentially described himself as a Steelers fan, and it was easy to spot him when he arrived. He sat down and told …

…You must find this floor and play with it. I wanted to spend all of E3 here. That’s all for now. I’m working on another blog post but have something more important to focus on right now.
