JIP: So, maak dit régtig saak?

Ek haat dit as mense simpel vrae vra. Vrae soos “Hoe kan jy nié van dubstep hou nie?” of “Hoekom het jy nog nooit ’n kêrel gehad nie?”

Ek besef toe dat ek dit ook doen.Dit is gewoonlik net uit pure nuuskierigheid.Ek wonder gereeld hoekom mense dink soos hulle dink en doen wat hulle doen, maar maak dit regtig saak? Maak dit saak hoekom daar mense is wat hou van peri-peri of wasabi-sjokolade?

Language Barrier

I normally blog in Afrikaans, my home language, but recently I've been thinking that an English post here or there can't do any harm...? I don't think I will ever just post in English, because I write more comfortably in Afrikaans, but there are so many more English than Afrikaans Internet users out there.

I don't know if this will become a thing, but it is possible that I will occasionally post something in English, seeing as my fan-club is growing already ;)

Speaking of my fan-club, for those of you who don't know, I have a YouTube channel - The Middle Child. I have been stuck on 93 subscribers for a few weeks now. For someone who hasn't been posting videos for that long, I think it is a pretty big number, but I wouldn't mind some growth.

Why do subs matter?

1. The more subscribers I have, the better I feel about myself because I don't have any friends and need to feel love from Internet people...
2. Subscribers receive an email whenever I upload a new video, so you never miss out on the awesomeness :D
3. More subs mean more advertisement of my channel and videos across YouTube, so more people can accidentally stumble across my channel and my channel can also be found more easily if someone were to Google it ;)

So, pretty pretty pretty please go and subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven't already. You won't lose anything and you will make me extremely happy. Also, if you don't subscribe, a cat might die, so do it for the kittens..

How to subscribe:
*Log into YouTube with your YouTube/Gmail/Google account (One account. All of Google)
*Don't have an account? Create one =D it's FREE!
*Logged in? Click this link.
*Click on the SUBSCRIBE button
*Receive a FREE invisible penguin!

you know you want to =)

JIP: Clichés, oral waar jy kyk...

Die wêreld is een groot cliché... Dié sin is selfs teen hierdie tyd ’n cliché.

Ek het gesukkel om ’n onderwerp te kies om oor te skryf, want alles waaraan ek dink, is al so holrug gery: eksamen, einde-van-die-jaar-sindroom, vakansie, wees jouself, die verkiesing, tienersterre wat handuit ruk, en en en (oeps, nog een).

Dink byvoorbeeld aan flieks: “I wil be back”; “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a…”; “May the force be with you”; “To infinity and beyond”; “Elementary, my dear Watson”; “Life is like a box of chocolates…”; “Luke, I am your father!”; “You can’t handle the truth”; “Make a hole, people, make a hole!"... Genoeg gesê?

Dan is daar die Facebook-clichés...

JIP - Tieners wat drink

Tieners wat drink is nie meer so ’n vreemde verskynsel as wat dit ’n klompie jare terug was nie... As jy vandag sou uitvind dat ’n vriend gereeld drink, sal jy nie so geskok wees soos wat jou ouers sou wees toe hulle jonk was nie. Inteendeel, jy sou dit dalk verwag. Dis mos snaaks, is dit nie?

Meeste mense lag vir dronk mense se gedrag. Sommige dink dis selfs nóg snaakser as die persoon uit-pass, maar daar is niks snaaks daaraan as iemand versmoor aan hul eie braaksel of die vergiftiging van die respiratoriese sentrum in die brein nie – albei wat tot die dood kan lei.

Ek het met ’n paar hoërskoolleerders gesels en tot die volgende gevolgtrekking gekom: daar is drie “soorte” tiener-drinkers...
