Formerly: i see what you did there.

I'm Alisa. I'm 21. I'm currently studying at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I like to take pictures and I'm majoring in Cognitive Science. I'm looking for inspiration and happiness.

I’m going to post here, what I cannot post on facebook.

This is my stance on what is happening between Israel and Palestine.

If Israel were to put down their arms, there would be no more Israel. If Palestine were to put down their arms, there would be peace. Palestinians want the people of Israel dead. They don’t want their land, they don’t want money. All they want is the erasure of the Jewish state and its people. So please, don’t tell me how fucked up the Israeli government, military, and people are. Palestine isn’t any fucking better.

So stop calling for Israel to be punished for war crimes. Instead, find a way to stop the war. Find a way for these people who HATE EACH OTHER BECAUSE OF RELIGION, to stop fighting. When and if the fighting ever stops, then we can see who should be punished for what.

If you can’t do that, shut the fuck up.

Ever have the passing feeling that you’re going to die alone? Well I have it at this moment and it’s unpleasant. I chose this life for myself… It just sucks when you feel unwanted after getting used to feeling pretty boss. I guess everyone has ups and downs. I just really need to get out of my parent’s house. I also need to find a way not to live with them after I graduate… They are lovely humans in their own rights, but they would probably be happier apart. I’m tired of being caught in the middle, trying to translate what each of them is saying into meaningful communication… And my mother wonders why I like to drink… It’s so I can deal with their nonsense. My mother won’t ask for anything and my father won’t know unless you say something. She has no tolerance for him, and he just shuts off in response. I don’t want that life for myself, or anyone else for that matter. It’s just very difficult emotionally for me to be here.

I love passionate kissing. I love when you both get so serious because you want it so much. Time stops and it’s just the two of you…

I also desperately miss all these things and often wish my life was a movie or tv show. Sadly that’s not the case. But it so possible to make that kind of magic. It just takes effort.

While web design is interesting and all, definitely not what I want to be doing. Can it be August already? I need to leave this situation. 
Also, fully aware that I will never be able to live under the same roof as my parents for more than two months.
This also means I will be painfully poor once I graduate next year.

I just realized that I’m really happy that I can make the calls myself now. If I want something or someone, I will get it/them. I don’t need to be pursued or have things placed in my lap. I’m perfectly capable of making my own opportunities, deciding what’s best for me, and letting go of what doesn’t work.
