Human being have one of the most complicated ways of communication and unfortunately for us, many of the intra- and interpersonal messages we give off can be misinterpreted by others. Many times have I been the fool who has interpreted the messages of a petty crush the completely wrong way into which they favour me, when really they don’t.
It can be crushing to learn that you’ve been lead on by mistake. Some people have that natural ability of flirtation which can be incredibly dangerous for not only them, but those around them.
I hate mixed messages. They’re not fair.
Government officials seem to have a lovely time being incredibly melodramatic. Full of superficial self-importance and an ego the size of the moon, they seem to have this desire to make an enormous deal out of events, which, quite frankly, aren’t that important after all.
The Rugby World Cup 2011 has become the biggest media feeding frenzy since the David Bain trials. Stadiums are being completely revamped and revitalized, new “party” buildings are being constructed and the entire country is being cleaned up. Sure, it’s new, fancy and very exciting. Total expected visitor count for the cup? 85,000 people. That’s about the population of a medium sized town! It’s quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. New Zealand attracts over 2.4 million tourists a year, yet we do nothing for them. The money should go towards more long term solutions rather than these quick and easy temporary things.
In an even bigger blow, our government has elected a Rugby World Cup Minister. Do we really need a minister for this World Cup?! It’s all so over the top for what used to be, a game, which, quite frankly, I don’t even care about.
