(Copied over from my TinierMe diary)
I'm not sure why this day is special. I mean, if you really care about the earth, you'll have been recycling and saving energy and stuff all year, not just today. Same goes for that earth hour thing where everyone's supposed to turn off their electronics for an hour. Hell, I turn off everything I own whenever I'm not in the room. Is that really so hard to do?
Whatever, I'm just saying I think the point of Earth Day is silly. If you only do good things for the Earth because it's Earth day, you're a hypocrite. It's just like only being nice to people because it's Christmas, or only playing with dangerous fireworks because it's the 4th of July. And Halloween is the same. Like Lewis Black said, we don't need a holiday to dress in funny costumes. We're adults now. If you wake up one morning and decide you want to be Batman, go for it. Who's gonna stop you?
I guess what I'm saying is, don't wait for an excuse like a holiday to do things. If you want to help the Earth, do it. If you want to talk like a pirate, do that too. It's your life. Make the most of it.
Okay, now that's off my chest, I'd like to point out that I've found another outlet for my pointless ramblings. Most of that now goes on in my TinierMe diary. If you'd like to read it, you can do so here. (Sadly, you have to be logged in to see it, so I'll still transfer the good ones over here as well)
