The Valiant Commentary

So, comments. Some people are scolded for leaving comments on blogs that clearly show that they haven’t read the blog. Even designing blogs, technology blogs, entertainment blogs, have comments enabled which allow you to leave a response to the blog posts. As defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a comment is:

1) a commentary;
2) a note explaining, illustrating, or criticizing the meaning of a writing

How is a comment on a blog post saying “nice site” or “nice layout” a commentary on the post at all? So please, try to avoid writing “first comment” when 1) you aren’t entirely sure if you are first because there could be at least one other person other than you also typing a comment when you are, 2) you indicate this uncertainty with a question mark at the end of your comment, 3) the time I posted was obviously a significant time before you encountered the post, keeping in mind that I am about 10+ hours GMT, and 4) you aren’t even going to come back and leave a “proper comment” like you said you were.

Point noted? Yay. 🙂

I’m sorry I’ve been so lazy but please excuse me; I’ve been watching The Big Bang Theory episodes non-stop, and no doubt I will be watching them over and over once I finish watching all the ones I have…

Not to mention I currently am on study break (yes, you heard me, I mentioned the word “study”, so don’t you dare call this a holiday!), so I’m taking a few days off to chill before I start pulling together the two assignments I have to work on, including – yet another – group debate. 😛

This time our topic is on “privacy is dead” but we are in the negative. Privacy is not dead in terms of media – why? You have the choice about the information you give out online, there are stated laws for companies not to release your information, and…

If by chance Ryan should read this, I think he might be disappointed that I gave out potential information in regards to our debate that would actually hinder our chances of winning, should the opposing team come across my blog, ergo I should shut up. 😉

Yesterday, Ryan, Vicky and I went to a really old milk bar (The Olympia Milk Bar); perhaps one from around the 1930s.

It was so creepy before we went in, because the lights were out and no one was in there. It was so spooky and the inside was really run-down, the door broken – Vicky and I were scared. Finally we went in. It was so eerie and quiet. 😧 It was an interesting experience nonetheless. A good way to occupy ourselves during our break, also by taking sticker photos (hahaha) and just hanging out again. 😛

Comments will be done when I can stop watching The Big Bang Theory. /um
