Not a bad Tuesday.... [Jan. 23rd, 2001|10:40 am]

I know the day isn't over yet, but I thought today was going to be much worse than it's been going so far, especially after only getting 5 hours of sleep.

I was really tired this morning and wanted to stay in my room all day, but being Tuesday Hell Day I knew I had to go to class....

Ever since I've lost my gloves riding my bike has sucked, but the ride to class wasn't that bad because it wasn't too cold at all.

Physics tutorial wasn't stressful because I had the homework done last night ... didn't have to rush to BS it this morning or in the 5 minutes before class started. Only annoying this was this little asian girl that was in our group who was giggle every 2 minutes and saying stuff like: "You guys are so smart." ... "I wish I could be your guys' lab partner." ... "Wow, you really know what you're doing." The thing is, though, we didn't.... we were just rushing through it like always so we could get out of there. She was amazed that I knew red was below green in the spectrum. wtf!? Stupid ditzy girls moochin' off our answers.... (No--- I'm not saying all girls are stupid and ditzy, but this one sure as hell was.) I started thinking about Elisa Durum (a girl from my high school) ... I always enjoyed doing homework with her because we were always helping each other out. Yeah.

So, now I'm in the computer lab during my two hour break. Programmin' time!

ROYGBIV...sheit. Slap that asian ho. Ok, not to stereotype here, but whenever Im waiting for a computer in MGH, there's always a few that decide to wander about and jack the computers that are actually for the ones waiting in line. And I dont know if its just me noticing this, but they're always asian. Asian girls mostly. And they're on cell phones. One day Im going to tell whoever steals my computer to back the fuck off, and to go stick their little princess ass at the back of the line. GRR.

yep, its washington.

I dont have a problem with any color or race, but I do have a problem with attitude and disrespect. And I think you would notice it too if you were here. Its not an asian thing at all, I have asian friends, my roommate all of last year was Korean. There just is a certain circle of people here that act as if everything is beneath them. Waiting in line is simply too much for them to endure. Im not going to go into the "korean mafia" of terry dorm last year, or their pimped out hondas. But around here its more of a joke, just like people joke about the typical greek system. It is a regional thing, but Im sorry it offended you.

Helen,

Calm down --- Kenji's Asian himself. He's being sarcastic. :-)

Also, I don't see how the entry you linked had anything to do with him ... he wasn't even part of that discussion.

a lot of asians discriminate against us, too. especially when their parents won't let you date their daughter because you're white....

::grumble::

I'm not saying you're parents are that way, but A LOT of asian parents are. At least that I've met.

Helen-

Brad's right, I know you're upset, but the entry I had was in a slightly different context than this one, I read it way before this and just kind of laughed, and so did my roommate, and she's Asian.

Sides, guys are dorks, ya just gotta let 'em talk sometimes...

(makes them feel important)

yes i am asian. i did overreact but i've had 4+ hours to think about what i said.

i admit the link was out of context. i shouldn't have referred to it. at the time i thought it would help my argument.

i looked at kenji's statements again. i didn't see them as sarcastic before and i don't see them as sarcastic now. if i said "all asians should go to hell" it would be believed that i was in a bad mood and hardly as sarcasm.

some believe that kenji is excused from making those comments because he is asian. if someone had said "all the jewish people should have died in those concentration camps back in WWII," i don't think people would have been very understanding. and what if it turned out the person who said it was jewish? it is ok then? can you find any humor in that?

i was also offended by the death statements. what if someone's journal had said this:
"stupid classmates and their cell phones. i will kill them all."
it doesn't matter what ethnicity this person is. everyone will think this person wants to start another columbine incident.

please think of what i said. i understand kenji was kidding around but i took it seriously.
kenji: i am sorry about the way i vehemently responded the first time. nobody should be spoken to like that.
i wish all of you did not have to see me in this light but i felt it was necessary to make my point and understand where i was coming from. thank you for taking the time read my comments, show me where i was wrong (the link), and letting me hear your views.

if it makes you feel better:

i don't expect to be excused just because i'm Asian. also, i don't have a habit of snooping around other people's journal just to post something offensive and be an ass...i posted in a friend's(brad) journal and responded to another friend's(chuck) comment. It certainly wasn't directed at you or anyone else. (just all asians :))

you don't have to apologize to me...i don't get hurt from the statements of people i don't even know.

p.s. don't tell anyone, but i don't actually hate asians. i lived in Japan off and on throughout my childhood and went to junior high there, made a lot of friends, which turned out to be one of the best 2 years of my life.

p.s. #2: just get off the damn phone

Dude, Brad, I now noticed that there was only one tiny little reference to asian girls in your entry, and you started all THIS?!! You're turning into me, man, this is scary.
