We Will Remember Stamp by OrigamiNinja41

I study Geography, Geology, History and Graphics in the UK. I like pretty much anything to do with water, animals and the environment and I dabble in geek culture every so often. (Right now, I'm pretty into DC and Marvel, Attack on Titan and Game of Thrones.)

You should also known that I am occasionally prone to spouting profanity. If you are the type who is sensitive to the topics of religion, sexuality, race, feminism, politics and other such subjects, I wouldn't advise adding me to your watch list.

DISCLAIMER: Know that any such examples are most likely to be satirical and that no actual disrespect is intended.

Holy shit, life is hectic at the moment.

So, I'm about 2 weeks into Sixth Form. ;0

I'm actually really enjoying it! I'm still a little disappointed that I couldn't study Biology, but from what I've heard, it's got a heck of a lot more chemistry-based, which would be a total nightmare for me. So perhaps it's best I didn't study it anyway. Also, I've heard the college offers a Biotechnology enrichment course next term so I reckon I'll sign up for that, just to get a foot in the door.

Geography is a lot more science-based now, anyway. I want to study environmental science when I get to uni, and Geography has everything to do with environmental science so I should be good to go, provided I get a good mark!

I'm also glad I took History in the end as well! We're studying the rise and fall of communism in Russia as well as the German Democratic Republic. I'm the only one in my class that didn't take it for GCSE but I seem to know about as much as everyone else in my class anyway! Probably due to all those history books my Grandad got for me over the summer. (woo!) Next year we'll be studying England during the wars. :)

Art is also awesome. I haven't really had a chance to hone my graphic skills yet since it's mainly traditional art at the beginning of the course. It's awesome being surrounded by other artistic people who are on your level. In my last school, I'd rank myself maybe in the top 5 in our year in terms of art skills. However, now, I couldn't really rank everyone if you asked me to, since we're all on the same level but we just have different styles. It's weird not being the best anymore but it's really refreshing in a way. There is this one girl who is amazing, though. Leagues ahead of everyone else. The other day she complimented my charcoal work.  OMG! I can't contain my excitement! I am a dummy! I freaked the fuck out internally.

EDIT: They let me move out of History of Art and into Geology, thank christ. I thought HoA would be really interesting and contextual but it was so boring. I wasn't even aware that I was qualified to take Geology until my Geography teacher pointed it out. I was so gutted because I got told at enrollment that I couldn't take it if I got a C in Chemistry, but it turns out I only need a B in Maths to take it. I don't know why they told me I couldn't. :P But anyway, I asked if I could change but the teacher says he doubted any space would come up this late into the the start of the course... literally the next day I got an email saying someone had moved out and I could move in. LOL  This is going to make my choice to peruse environmental sciences a fuck ton easier.

They work you really hard here, but I quite like being kept busy by work I'm genuinely interested in. Plus, free periods are a godsend! Seriously, I can just go to the library and work quietly. Or if by some miracle I have no work to be completed then I can just leave the premises for a bit and go to a cafe. I can tell this won't last forever though. Pretty soon I'll be stressing out again. (Two years, Holly. Two years and then you can have a gap year!)

Plus, me and my Dad had a.. slight disagreement... before my exams which resulted in us not talking for a while. But today we're going fishing and he's taking me to a watercolour exhibition at one of my favourite galleries. In terms of uploading, my uploads will be quite far between nowadays but I do want to practice more at digital art, so hopefully you'll see some of that.

Oh boy, another politicaly and economicaly illiterate person who does not undesrtand capitalism nor free market. We're up for a ride boys.
YaKitten Featured By Owner Edited Jun 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The 'Probably Socialist or some crank' thing is an inside joke between me and my friends as a reference to 'An Inspector calls' which we were required to study for our English GCSE (which is also why you will see me spam 'I don't play golf' in reply to some of my comments which is another line from the screenplay. Hilarious if you put it into context.)

The 'Burning hatred for capitalism' is also a joke, certainly a hyperbole. While it's true I do not 'like' capitalism or the free market per say, (or rather, the side effects of it), I understand that it is necessary for this stage in globalisation.

Though I am a left libertarian, I do not fully identify as socialist as I respect that a radical left-wing change to the economy would be disastrous, nor do I hate people who identify as capitalist.

So don't worry, I don't blindly follow the far-left agenda.

(Also, are you that guy who replied to my comment on the feminist stamp? Fyi, I'm a humanist and fully support people who are anti-feminist. I just didn't understand your analogy, or rather thought it was a bit far-fetched. However once you explained I got the jist of it.)

My comment was indeed rushed and I didn't put much research nor thought in your profile nor your claims, which I should apologize for.
I'm not a free market freak myself, I support goverment in making restrictions on capitalists so everyone could get a fair shot and don't believe in anarcho-capitalism, that's just a side note.
I actually don't like the globalisation of market myself, while useful and comfortable it can have damaging effects on quality of products we buy and on wealthy people getting more power than middle class or poor people, which was the case in my country (Poland) that I'm glad someone exposed.
Well, you know what they say - if you manage to piss off both conservatives and liberals you can call yourself a libertarian.

I'm very glad to understand and see that I was wrong in my accusations. I'm very disappointed in humanity that alot of people either go for being conservative or leftist, rather than see the good points that both of the sides represent, alot of people are so deep in their bullshit they can't see that they have become bigots themselves, that's why I'm pretty agressive and straight forward with my claims, which I apologize for.

As I said - I'm glad you don't. After all people forgot that being atheist is also being open minded and not automaticaly conforming to the far leftist side and vice versa.

(No idea, it depends what the content of the stamp was? But it's surely possible)

Okay, thank you for understanding.  I totally get why you seemed agressive as yes, there are so many people out there who become emoptionally attatched to their ideologies to the point of being so defensive and hypocritical. I can't stand people like that myself so don't worry about it.

Also good to know that there are other people out there on the internet that actually listen to reason. :)
