Dear Maniac Woman

30 Jun

I just want to say that the world does not revolve around you. I feel sorry for you for being such a maniac, depressive, suicidal and insecure woman, who unfortunately got nothing else to do than sit down and read my blog. I don’t feel flattered nor moved in any way by this action of yours but I’d suggest you GET SOME THERAPY!

I don’t want any drama in my life; I know that ultimately you will end up reading this, which is why I spared some minutes to post this, instead of having a normal conversation with you, which is practically impossible given the high level of sanity you have lost. The very sound of your voice shouts DESPERATION.

Getting people to stalk me, impersonate me, hack my emails or report me on different social networks will NEVER change the person I’m, nor will I freak out or live my life in depression as you thought I would be. You are such a sad case for humanity.

Eventually, I’d like to state some facts – Your infinite attempts to remove/erase feelings from someone’s heart are vain and futile because ‘Feelings’ is the only thing which you don’t have control over. Maybe you should get a life instead. Some sessions at the hairdresser or another liposuction might do you some good to help boost your self-esteem.

À bon entendeur, salut !

A new day!

9 Jun

There comes a time when you must stand alone.

You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.You must be willing to make sacrifices.

You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.

Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.

There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.

Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.

Be confident enough that you won’t settle for a compromise just to get by.

Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life.

Don’t stand in someone else’s shadow when it’s your sunlight that should lead the way.

Abortion and rape!

7 Jun

Before reading this post, bear this in mind; I’m not an extremist, I’m no super religious and I’m fully conscious of a woman’s civil right whether to give birth to a child or not. I’m just striving to find some sense behind all those arguments being put forward by the authorities to legalise abortion.

I was inspired by Aniisah’s post to write on abortion. Everyone has their own opinion on abortion. Some people contend that abortion is a right that should not be limited by governmental or religious authority and is the solution for rapes committed on women. They argue that pregnant women will resort to unsafe illegal abortions if there is no legal option. Others are against abortion featuring it as an immoral act and against some religious belief.

If in cases of danger to the pregnant woman or the child suffering from severe malformation, an abortion, in my opinion, is justified.

Now concerning rapes, I’d say: Damn the authority for not thinking about the other side of the story. If ‘killing‘ is being legalised as such, why not kill the ones who deserve it? Why not kill the rapists, why not kill those who commit immoral or incestuous acts? Why kill that little innocent life? 

By killing the unborn child, what is being achieved? Will the number of rapes decrease? Will abortion decrease the immoral acts committed by people? The answer is IT WON’T! Yes, maybe it will relieve the burden that some women have to carry. But will it relieve the burden of having been raped? If the authority is taking such a step, why not take the step to get rid of the root causes of the need for abortions? THE RAPISTS!

Yes, legalise abortion as a remedial action for anything bad which has been committed to a woman. BUT, legalise capital punishment or any other sort of very severe punishment, for those who commit such an act – to eliminate the source of the problem itself.  Being sentenced for some years for having committed a rape and enjoying a 3 star treatment in the cells is the result of a rape in Mauritius – I wonder if this compensates for killing an unborn child.

There are many things which I think should be considered before really legalising abortion:

–  Firstly, I believe that since conception does not occur immediately following intercourse, pregnancy can be eliminated in all rape cases if the rape victim receives immediate medical treatment by having all the male semen removed from her uterus;

–  Arguments about the raped women undergoing mental stresses. Abortion brings a trauma of its own – I believe that homicide of another is never justified to relieve one of emotional distress;

–  A child does not lose its right to life simply because its father or its mother was a sexual criminal or a deviant;

–  Professor Stephen Krason points out that…

“psychological studies have shown that, when given the proper support, most pregnant rape victims progressively change their attitudes about their unborn child from something repulsive to someone who is innocent and uniquely worthwhile.”

– If a woman doesn’t want the child, she always has the option to giving the baby for adoption;

– Legalising abortion will not eliminate the root causes of the problem in rape cases;

– Abortion for me is like justifying an immoral act (in cases of rapes)

Ultimately, I believe it remains the woman’s choice to decide whether or not to give birth to the child. It is her civil right – leave the right to the women to decide. The unwanted pregnancy flows biologically from the sexual act, but not morally from it.

“My biological father is a rapist. But I am still a human being and I still have value. My life isn’t worth any less than yours because of the way I was conceived. And I did not deserve the death penalty because of the crime of my father.” (Pam Stenzel, Straight talk from Pam Stenzel (1998) Vision Video Inc. PO Box 540, Worcester, Pennsylvania, 19490, USA)

I’m for legalising abortion for a pregnant ‘CHILD’ after a rape, but this law should be complemented with other severe law for eliminating the root cause, for eliminating the rapist – and I’d suggest capital punishment for rapists!

The transit of Venus across the sun

6 Jun

Sky-watchers around the world were able to witness a transit of Venus—a celestial event that won’t be seen again for more than a century.

Transits happen when a planet crosses between Earth and the sun. Only Mercury and Venus, which are closer to the sun than our planet, can undergo this unusual alignment. [This is AMAZING!] On 9 May 2016, there will be a transit of Mercury!

With its relatively tight orbit, Mercury circles the sun fast enough that we see the innermost planet transit every 13 to 14 years. But transits of Venus are exceedingly rare, due to that world’s tilted orbit: After the 2012 Venus transit, we won’t see another until 2117.

During the transit, Venus looked like a black dot gliding across the face of the sun over the course of about six hours.

“Venus’s diameter will appear only about a 30th the diameter of the sun, so it will be … like a pea in front of a watermelon,” said Jay Pasachoff, an astronomer at Williams College in Massachusetts.

Venus is my most favourite planet; not to say I’ve deep ‘connections’ with this particular planet. I’m sure it must have been a really amazing thing to watch.

View the video clip of the transit of Venus across the Sun!

…the clouds, as if by divine interposition, were entirely dispersed, and I was once more invited to the grateful task of repeating my observations. I then beheld a most agreeable spectacle, the object of my sanguine wishes…I could scarcely have wished for a more extended period.

This sight…is by far the noblest astronomy affords…” -Edmond Halley

What’s your personality type?

5 Jun

Ever found yourself doing a personality type test?

Yesterday I did a personality type test and thought it was a good way to get to know the-ME.  There are many tests which you can do as well to assess your personality. One of them is The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment which is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

I took two personality tests – The first was according to Carl’s Jung and the second one was Myers-Briggs Personality typology. Both tests gave the same result. So, I’m officially an INTJ human type, the Mastermind / the Scientist – and apparently INTJs are one of the rarest of the sixteen personality types, and account for about 1–4% of the population. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTJ

The overview of the sixteen personality types is described here. To be true, I couldn’t have better described myself. I do acknowledge the fact that I have a hard time being emotional or even display my emotions/feelings.

“…approach reality as they would a giant chess board, always seeking strategies that have a high payoff, and always devising contingency plans in case of error or adversity.”

“…observer, values solitude, perfectionist, detached, private… does not talk about feelings, hard to impress, analytical, likes esoteric things…”

– Jung Type Descriptions (INTJ) (similarminds.com)

“To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise — and INTJs can have several — they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how.”

– INTJ Profile (TypeLogic)

“At work, INTJs use their conceptual strengths to analyze situations and then develop models to understand and anticipate through relentlessly to reach their goals. They will continue on with their plans, even in the face of adversity and data that might suggest to other more practical types that their goals are no longer feasible. By nature, INTJs are independentindividualists.”

“INTJs are natural leaders, although they usually choose to remain in the background until they see a real need to take over the lead. When they are in leadership roles, they are quite effective, because they are able to objectively see the reality of a situation, and are adaptable enough to change things which aren’t working well. They are the supreme strategists – always scanning available ideas and concepts and weighing them against their current strategy, to plan for every conceivable contingency. “

Take the personality test and let me know what are your views on the result!

 Or u can take the Carl’s jung personality test as well.

National Computer Board!!

5 Jun

‘ More and more Australians are connecting to the internet using a broadband connection…’

This morning I was surfing on the internet, looking for some information about bandwidth and I came across the National Computer Board’s website. This is the government’s National Computer Board website where it has made mention of ‘more and more australians…’ (See underligned). Australians in Mauritius are connecting to the internet using a broadband connection! 🙂

 The least anyone at the NCB would be expected to do is to know what is being written on a government website. Incredible Mauritius!

THE clock!

1 Jun

I just love this clock! Just refreshed my maths in my mind!

Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing. There will never a right time to doing things RIGHT – apart from NOW!   Life is like a ball in the field, the ball doesn’t move unless the player kick it, so the same to life. If you don’t like doing something, don’t waste your time over it! Time is too precious to be wasted
