Back again

“Another day past, another day to come.” I finally understood why people told me that time flies. It felt like I was just a freshman and now I’m studying for SATs and people are asking for what college I’m thinking of applying to . It felt like it was just last week when I passed off this blog to my partner Cinnamon Roll while I went off to travel with my cousins. It felt like it was just yesterday when I woke up for my first day back to school. As I went through a robotic cycle of school, practice, homework, school, I didn’t notice that the time was passing, dates were changing, weather was getting colder. Now as I sit in front of my computer, with nothing to do for the first time in forever, I wonder how my chickeneers are.

How are you?

A long time passed since I last posted, and I’m sure I made all you followers wonder the question I asked myself.

How Hungry ARE You?

It’s really fascinating how different your mood becomes when you’re extremely hungry. It’s like your body fills you with an overwhelming need to eat and regain energy. I, for one, go absolutely bonkers when I’m starving. I don’t think you’d want to see how I’d look, but it looks something like this:

angry

So when I was reading Animal Farm, I couldn’t help but understand completely how angry the animals became when they weren’t fed.  Mr. Jones neglected them, forgetting to feed them all day, and I knew something bad was about to go down because of it. Then, when the animals rebelled and kicked Mr. Jones off of his farm, I was excited for the animals. Mr. Jones was a horrible, drunk farmer anyways, who needs him? Certainly no one. While reading this, I found many parallels between this book and the Russian Revolution of 1917. Mr. Jones symbolized the last Russian Czar, Nicholas II, who was also a bad ruler. A famine spread throughout Russia and food shortages got worse because of the World War. Because of the food shortages, people also got angry, like the animals did, and organized riots. The Duma soon abdicated the czar and the people soon fell under the rule of Lenin, then Stalin. Similarly, the animals soon fell under rule of Napoleon, who like Stalin, was a totalitarian ruler. Too bad the situation got worse for the animals, and not better.

In my English class, we also watched The Seventh Samurai. For those who don’t know, this Japanese movie is about a village of farmers who have been raided by bandits. These farmers are devastated, left with almost nothing to live for. They seek the help of samurais, who they believe can help against a future attack of the bandits. However, many samurais decline their offer, because the farmers have nothing to offer them besides a little bit of food every day. Fortunately though, through time they find a group of samurais willing to help them. The movie shows their process of preparing for a future attack, their struggle for survival in the process, as well the outcome when the attack eventually takes place. Fueled by hunger and misery, these farmers fight to their best ability alongside the samurais to defend their village. They actually have to starve themselves in order to provide enough food for their samurais. The samurais give their best efforts to defend the village as well, even though they know there will be no great wealth or honor as a reward for their services and there won’t be much food given by the farmers. Although this movie is a little dated, you should watch it if you haven’t already. It’s an amazing movie with an amazing plot and an amazing moral. Fight for what you’ve got and don’t let anyone step over you, no matter what situation you’re in. Help those in need, regardless what might be given as a reward. You should just do good deeds for the sake of doing good deeds. It’s the thought that counts.

So yeah, hunger cause you to do things you normally won’t do. For me and the animals in Animal Farm, hunger causes anger and agitation. For the farmers, it gives them a certain strength, a reason to defend their village from the bandits.

5/10 Quote of the Day

“Subdue your appetites, my dears, and you’ve conquered human nature.”

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to conquer human nature then…. My stomach is something all on it’s own sometimes. Hehe ^^ When it’s hungry, it’s HUNGRY. And then people near by turn around after hearing growls as loud as a lion’s. I’m… sorry? I CAN’T HELP IT THOUGH
