07/05/2002 Archived Entry: "4th of July? Bah!"

Heh heh... I was intending to wish everyone a happy Independence Day and all, but I kinda fell asleep. ^_^;

Unlike what seems like most people, I am not patriotic. Thus, the 4th of July does not mean much to me. Sure, I acknowledge that it's the nation's independence day and all and I understand that it's an important day and all, but I honestly can't get too excited. Everyone's in a whole patriotic uproar after the whole September 11th incident, but I feel no different. Heck, maybe I even feel less patriotic after the incident. Before the whole incident, there was no vocal outcry of patriotism, but after, everyone's all "I love America!" and "lets display the flag on everything! Bah! It kinda sickens me. If you're patriotic, you wouldn't need something to trigger all this outcry. I just can't help but think that everyone's just joining some kind of patriotism bandwagon or something. So anyway... back to my point, I'm not patriotic. Never was, most probably never will be.

At least the 4th of July is good for something: I get a day off school. ^_^ Feeling the need to get out of the house and do something to celebrate my day off from school, I spent the day with Shana. We watched the Hey Arnold! movie. The TV series was pretty entertaining and the movie is pretty much more of the same, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

We went around the mall and you know what? I bought the Sega Smash Pack 2. You know what that equates to? I GET TO PLAY SHINING FORCE AGAIN!!! ^_^ I love the series. By far my favorite tactics series. Forget about FF Tactics, it's all about Shining Force. I just wish that I could have played the third game, but I never could. Even if I can track down a copy, I'll only be able to play the first part. I want to play all three parts! Gwar!

While everyone was out watching fireworks, I went over to my cousins for their 4th of July party. It wasn't really a party per se, it was just a gathering with lots o' food. My cousins and I pretty much spent the night watching TV because we had nothing better to do. Yes, rather sad, eh? At least on my way home, I helped myself to (i.e. borrowed) their copy of Grandia II. ^_^ It's pretty interesting so far, but I still haven't gotten too far.

Official One Piece character test, eh? Here's what I got:

I tried to ask my boss for Canada Day off, and since I'm not Canadian he didn't let me. -__-; Why are you still in school?! I'm on vacation. ^_^

hehehe, you're right on the patriotism thing. After the attack, no one was all gung-ho about America, but now it's really cool to be American. :B People now have store-bought flags hanging outside their houses, whilst the more older peoples' flags, flags that cost them a brother and a couple of buddies, are finally getting mentioned. Why? Because patriotic is cool now. :D

Thanks for the good luck. ^_^ I hope your Nakoruru.nu sites go well too!
