have wandered onto the property.
It isn’t incredibly often that people wander this far out. Not for as long as he’s lived here. Admittedly, though, that hasn’t been or very long. After spending nearly two decades living in Germany, he’s just recently moved to this cabin in the woods. An old friend was ready to move on again; call it a trade. Roderick furrows his brow and peeks out of his window curiously before deciding perhaps he should see if they are lost. He fed recently; he shouldn’t attack. Adjusting the collar of his shirt, he comes out of his front door, rolling a sleeve up. “Lose your way?”
She had issues, there was no denying that much about Bea. Even when she wasn’t wearing her mask of Lucky-B, something that was becoming more and more often with each passing day, she still was rarely seen with a smile. She also usually had some nasty idea brewing in her head. Tonight was one of those nights. Unfortunately for Bea, she likely wouldn’t get around to her plan.
She had been messaging one of the boys, growing more and more frustrated with their ignorance. How many times had Bea explained the plan? In her frustration, she flung the phone angrily, nearly hitting a passerby.
Yes, this introductory/welcome post comes with a warning. And these are the things you need to know (in no particular order):
- I am highly opinionated (even if I usually keep my opinions to myself in the ‘real world’).
- I know what I like and what I don’t like.
- I am also open to new things, however.
- I am an atheist.
- But I will never judge you if you have your own beliefs and I’ll never hold your religion against you and I’ll never try and convert you.
- I’m half German/half Australian
- I study science and business management at university.
- I work part-time in a science laboratory.
- I love to read and write.
- Poor grammar infuriates me.
- I love many books, authors, tv shows, movies, bands and music (I shan’t list them here as that would take a very long time. But you should be able to work out a clear picture by what I post on this blog.).
- I tend to become rather obsessive about said books, authors, tv shows, movies, bands and music.
- Really rather obsessive.
- Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit/The Silmarillion/J.R.R. Tolkien will always be the one series of books and movies that I will come back to. I collect other fandoms and become very obsessed, but LOTR will always be constant, even if I don’t post about it sometimes.
- I love to get involved with various fandoms.
- I won’t be updating this blog every single day.
- I’m not sure what a “quality blog” is, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t one.
- I will also occasionally post personal comments.
- I won’t automatically follow you back if you follow me.
- The ‘q’ tag is for my queued posts (sometimes… most times I’m just lazy and my queued stuff isn’t tagged).
- I am NOT a spoiler-free blog. As soon as I watch a new episode of something - I will reblog the hell out of it and post my opinions.
- I am really rather socially awkward, even online. So if it seems as though I’m ignoring your, or being rude - it’s not the case. I’m just awkward like that and I find it hard to word things…
This has been a welcome post.
U.S. welcomes Myanmar moves but unsure of real reform
“We have seen encouraging signs over time,” said Mitchell, noting that Myanmar had not, however, curbed violence against ethnic minorities in the north and east of the country.”What we’re looking for is a release of all political prisoners without condition to really send the signal of genuine commitment to democracy in the country,” said the U.S. special representative and policy coordinator for the country, which the United States refers to by its colonial name, Burma.Mitchell did not directly answer questions about whether the United States deemed the latest prisoner release sufficient for Washington to take reciprocal steps toward Myanmar.Western nations have shunned Myanmar for decades because of its poor human rights record, but its new civilian government, which came to power this year after the military nominally gave up power, is taking tentative steps to end its isolation.The release of about 200 political detainees on Wednesday, under a general amnesty for 6,359 prisoners, followed a loosening of some media controls and more dialogue with pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.The United States, Europe and Australia have said the freeing of political prisoners is essential to considering lifting sanctions that have crippled Myanmar and driven it closer to China.Saying he had “very, very productive and candid meetings” when he visited the country in September, Mitchell said “we’ve seen … since then even more gestures and more moves by the government that seems to be a trend toward greater openness.”But Mitchell said there are still questions within the U.S. government “about whether, in fact, we are seeing something fundamentally different in the country.”Are we seeing a real path to reform as they laid out their goals of democracy, human rights, national reconciliation, and development, national development for the country?”“There are still questions about how far they’re going to go and where this is going to lead,” he said. “If in fact we do see change, reform along those lines of democracy, human rights, national reconciliation and development, they will have a partner in the United States … that is what we have sought to pursue for many years now.”
