So today is my last full day in York and I’m up and packing. Completely depressed. I’ve spent the last three years of my life here and I adore this city. Can’t believe I’m going and that I’m not going to see my girlfriend every day. Suppose it gives me an incentive to work my butt off so we can get back here, and eventually get to London to live, but it’s not the point. I don’t want to leave. I’ve also said goodbye to some of the most amazing, loveliest people that I’ve met up here these last few days, and I’ve got more to do today and I don’t want to. Some of them have been there through a lot and have made difficult situations more bareable and leaving them feels as unfair on them as it does on myself and my girlfriend.
Anyway could rant all day and night but it’s not going to change anything and will just make me more depressed, so I’ll shut up..
So I’ve been unfollowed by a few people who evidently don’t like what I have to say. That’s fine, I’m really not offended whatsoever. I know this sounds like deep down I am, but I just find it rather funny.
I was unfollowed today for being close-minded and shallow, so I am led to believe, purely because I will not read the Maddie McCann book. I want to find Madeline as much as the entire world does - what happened is absolutely terrible, but the fact of the matter is, whether you like it or not, her parents left her and her siblings alone in their room while they went and had dinner with friends. If you asked me what would I have done, I can safely say certainly not that. If you want to on holiday and go out with friends without being bothered by what to do with your children, leave them at home. No, obviously not alone, I mean…I’m sure Madeline’s grandparents could have helped out; provided all are still alive, there are four of them afterall. Alternatively, if you want to take your children on holiday with you but want a night off, look into a Nanny service. Not particularly safe in a foreign country? No, perhaps not, but if they had used that option (which their resort provided) then maybe Madeline would be just a normal, unheard of girl going to school and about her every day life. At least if something had happened, there would be no blame on the parents. We all know that Madeline is missing, we all know it’s terrible, and we are all aware of sightings that fail to be her. We know her parents probably feel rather guilty, we know they’re all suffering and are stuck in limbo. I’m just not sure a book is necessary. Admittedly, I’ve not even read the back, but I don’t really want to. Perhaps I should read before I judge, but in previous experiences, it’s just another case of cashing in off of a terrible experience. Funnily enough, the person who unfollowed me on Twitter was tweeting about doing that herself as far as I am aware. I’m not closed-minded or shallow, or at least I try my hardest not to be…closed-minded most certainly not and I am offended by being called that…clearly that person is stuck in their own mind-set and their opinions will not be changed either. Just because my opinion is not the same as hers, to get all arsey over it is downright pathetic.
And that brings me to my other unfollow. Not really sure why that’s happened. I love how these things occur without an explanation. I guess once again my opinions, my likes and my dislikes that I’m not afraid to voice (and no, they’re not that controversial - they’re usually over the odd TT, a musical or a performer) are not to everyone’s taste so they remove me. What they seem to forget is that they tweet incessantly about their likes and dislikes too that I don’t necessarily agree with - I don’t unfollow though. It’s downright annoying when your opinion gets shouted down every time because that person doesn’t agree with you and they know EVERYTHING there is to know about everything, and you should therefore share their opinion or shut the hell up.
What’s even funnier is that both of these people are grown people, and one was fine with me mere days ago. I guess it doesn’t matter how old you are - Twitter is a playground and turns people into infants.
