I recently received a review from a user, currently going by the name eoitgooiug (User ID: 4471971), for one of my fanfics on FFN. While I've received my fair share of strange and unorthodox comments (and a few hate messages every so often) during my stay at FFN, this particular review is admittedly a new experience for me.

I didn't know whether to laugh or to be offended by this little gem.Collapse )

So... Do I report this as sexual harassment? (Or spam, at the very least; it's not relevant to the content of my fanfic and it's definitely a form of advertisement.) Or should I just keep this up for laughs? I've screen-capped it and everything, though I don't know if I'd have to (just in case, I guess?).

This year, I'm giving up music. So no listening to music on commutes, nor at home, nor when I'm studying. No signing, either. Church music on Sundays (and some Saturdays) won't count; I don't have any option around that anyhow.

Let's see how this goes?

When I was in middle school, there was a big change in how to designate our years — you know, that change from using "BC/AD" to "BCE/CE."

When BCE/CE was introduced, it was explained as "Before the Common Era" and "Common Era." But to my still-developing child ears, I heard it as "Before the Common Error" and "Common Error." Which made sense to me, because I thought the "error" referred to a debate over whether or not Christ was born.

When did I learn that it was "era" and not "error?"

When I was a senior in high school.

What makes humans want to flee under duress? I've never understood that. Or maybe I do, somewhere deep down, and I just don't want to admit it. As long as the conflict doesn't threaten the health and safety of the persons involved, isn't it easier to just buck up and take it? To persevere? To endure?

Or maybe endurance and perseverance is just another way to say you're taking a coward's way out...?

Three little elephants dancing by the sea
One jumped too high and fell on his knee
His friends gathered round and said of little E 
"My, what a silly elephant."

Two little elephants dancing by the sea
One heard a whale and ran away to see
The last little elephant said of little E
"My, what a silly elephant."

One little elephant dancing by the sea
He didn't have much fun because he was lonely
His friends came back with a picnic for three
My, what such silly elephants.

There are voices from the sea
magic secrets that they keep
and they're calling out to you
from the depths of ocean blue.

Can you hear their ancient song?
Tales of soldiers all day long
bravely fighting just for you
from the rolling seas of blue.

Strings of pearls and scales of light
merfolk dream of every night
hoping that their princess true
will come back to ocean blue.
