whats really funny about this whole thing you’re currently reading is that I’m using a laptop thousands of miles away from me (or maybe just one, whatever). granted, its a little laggy, but that’s not the point. the point is, i can go on my blog, which i could not previously do without the help of a really great friend of mine. and his old laptop.
you see, my school offers tablets, ipads specifcally, for its students to borrow for the school year. originally the only sites blocked from it were pornagraphic in nature, and i could go on my merry way reading all the fanfiction (yes, yes i read fanfiction, back to the point) and go on youtube, happily watching the videos and music i was, and am, nterested in.
not so much anymore.
seriously, i cant even go on youtube, let alone any sites that feature fanfiction. sure, there’s cussing on a lot of the videos done by various vloggers, but there are books in my school’s library with some pretty mature content. if you’ve ever read The Little Bones you’ll know, and even if you haven’t as im about to explain, that in the very beginning of the book the protaganist (a girl barely even into her preteens) is raped. the book’s in the first person. there are details. (its not too detailed, actually, but just enough that it makes an impact. you’d have to read it. in fact, i reccommend you do.)
im not saying they shouldnt have given access to that book, obviously. im really glad they did, because it was a great book, with a lot of insightful lessons in its pages.
but now i cant even get to my blog without having to use my friend’s old laptop from TWO STATES AWAY. (he’s really a genius, to be perfectly honest)
i have suffered from, and continue to battle, depression. writing allows me to communicate my deepest emotions and ideals. even the one’s that aren’t so deep. its my weapon.
i will not stand for such supressive bullshit, and honestly believe that no one shoulde either.
my message: stand up for what you believe is right, but do it within bounds that don’t get you in more trouble then you where in. also, surround yourself with friends who would do the same.
