You electrify my life

It’s much easier to not know things sometimes. Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody. I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me. I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and than make the choice to share it with other people. You can’t just sit their and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can’t. You have to do things. I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is. And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. I don’t know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. It’s just different. Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.

Rubble bucket challenge hopes to draw attention to Gaza conflict

This new version, which was started by Palestinian journalist Ayman al Aloul, uses rubble from demolished buildings instead.

‘I have to do something and to send a message all over the world about Gaza,’ he said in the video before having the rocks poured over him.

Israel and Palestine have now agreed an Egyptian-brokered plan to end the fighting in Gaza after 50 days of combat.

More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, 64 Israeli soldiers and five civilians in Israel were killed.

"I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well she’s too Asian’, or ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough." (x)
