"My life is not an easy one"
My name is Patricia, I'm from Venezuela and on this blog you'll find mostly films, books, comics, random stuff etc, etc, etc. Nothing out of this world, really.
That being said, have a look around.
Even though I’ve been acting chilled and keeping on my blogging stuffs, I still feel a little bit sad and worried that everyone on Tumblr only knows things happening in big countries. I’ve talked about this on my blog only a few times but nobody really pays attention to what I said. Maybe because I don’t have enough followers, maybe because media doesn’t have enough reports about this thing, maybe because nobody has died in this event so people don’t consider it serious.
You guys probably think governments which are being harsh to their people are scary, but recently I realized governments which ignore their people are scary too. My country, Taiwan, is trying to pass a Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement with Mainland China. The problem is not about this agreement, the problem is that our people have no idea how this agreement work, who is in charge with this agreement and how many professional estimation has been done before the agreement gets signed. We are afraid, because if this agreement has some problems, our economy might collapse and thousands people might lose their jobs and their families. This agreement is too sloppy to be signed. Our people tried to express our worry but the government didn’t give a shit.
So on March 17th, hundreds of college students broke into the Legislature and occupied the building. It has been 6 days since those students are inside the building. They have no resources and everything is in bad condition. The building is surrounded by bunches of police officers. Even though the government promised they wouldn’t attack those students, we have no idea what would happen if those students keep on occupying the building. The leader of the students, Lin and Chen, declare that their purpose is to fight for everyone’s right in a peaceful way. They want the government to accept their 2 simple requests: disapprove the agreement and make a new law making sure the agreement would be deliberated in a reasonable procedure. But after 6 days, the government still doesn’t pay attention to them and resist all their requests. Our president, Mr. Ma, also refuses to meet the students leaders to listen to their demands. Students inside and outside the Legislature have been irritated by the government’s attitude. The situation has gone wild and there are even some violence stuffs happened despite how hard the leaders are trying to handle all over 30 thousands angry students.
I just want more people to know about this. My government doesn’t listen to their people’s voice. We are angry and hopeless. Most of these people are under 25, they are just a group of college students who don’t want to watch their own country being treated unfairly. They have no bids to fight with our government. They have been constantly fighting for 6 days. Their parents can’t even go into the building to meet their beloved children. They are exhausted and frustrated but they still don’t want to give up. You think college students only know partying and skipping classes? No. These young adults are fighting for their won country like real warriors. I don’t understand why nobody cares about their actions. They are brave and strong and they are probably just in your age. They need more attention. Even though you probably can’t do anything for them, but your attention might help them keep going on. And your attention might help them to make our government fear. Government needs to be feared by their people.
PLEASE READ THIS AND REBLOG. Things have been out of control last night. Students and people got beaten up by police. I couldn’t stop crying when I watched the news. There were bloods everywhere and the police were even trying to get the media away so they wouldn’t get to record the violence scene…we really need attention. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED! These students are still young and innocent. They just want to protest for the future of the country but they probably not gonna even meet their families anymore. We’ve got enough coldness from our government. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE US.
Please don’t ignore us, we really need your help

Estoy tan cansada. Estoy cansada de intentarlo. Quiero gritar, quiero golpear una pared hasta que mis nudillos sangren, quiero romper todo lo que cruza mi mirada.
Quiero quererme lo suficiente como para poner de vez en cuando a mí antes que los demás, ser egoísta al menos una sola vez. A decir verdad, ni yo misma entiendo por qué prefiero que me den 15 puñaladas antes que uno de mis amigos se vea involucrado.
No soy mi prioridad.
Tomé la decisión de reducirme, hacerme diminuta y dejé que me aplastara. Dejé que me consumiera viva, pero está bien, mis amigos no llegaron a ser involucrados en la situación.
Soy la cretina, la villana, la única que no controla sus emociones y sus malos ánimos. Soy la impulsiva lanza patadas de burro. Soy la mal nacida que le dice las cosas a la cara a la gente y luego deja que volteen la situación para volverme sumisa y arrepentirme de mis palabras, aunque no sea sincera.
Sin embargo, a pesar de haberme vuelto el ser más minúsculo, no voy a disculpar de nuevo. No lo haré, no le daré ese gusto, pues no se lo merece. No es problema mío que él sea una persona llena de rencores sin sentido, inducidos por traumas creados por su propia mente.
No voy a permitir que alguien, más nunca, me vuelva a hacer esto. Y no, no le voy a guardar rencor a pesar de que lo que hizo estuvo absurdamente mal. ¿Por qué? Porque no lo vale. Si le guardo rencor significa que me importa, y realmente no me importa. Sólo espero que realmente toda esta situación de inmadurez pase por encima de mis amigos y no los ponga en una posición incómoda.
Pero basta, basta de hacerme menos. Basta de ser condescendiente. Ya no más.
