Olympic Fever

To be honest, I wasn't too fond of the Olympics, for various reasons.. but I'm glad that it is held in Vancouver though. The hype is building up, and I find myself proud to say I live here. (Can't say I'm proud to be Canadian.. just yet. I will be though, soon enough! For those who are wondering, it's because I still hold the Singaporean Citizenship) Right before my midterm was held, we managed to catch a glimpse of the torch relay on Richards and Robson. Tons of people were running towards the torch, and snapping away. I on the other hand.. was too short to get a decent picture lol. Managed to sneak a few in, but they weren't great. Oh wells, it was nice to be able to check the festivities out though. The streets haven't been this filled since.. ever? With that being said.. I'd say 1/3 of them were sadly.. protesters. I truly do not get why they're going all out just to bash the Olympics. I get that people are angry at the government for going over the budget and what not.. but what's done is done. Accept it, and move on. Do you not have anything better to do? And for those protesters who continuously complain about how Vancouver has been putting them through crap for the past 20 odd years and what not.. Reality check, if you really do hate this city that much, get out. No one is forcing you to stay here. There are a few other neighboring countries you can reside in. Why bother trying to ruin a moment for Vancouver, when the event is already planned out and is happening? Such a waste of time don't you think. And ruining the city's property? There's your free ticket to jail, if that's what you people were aiming for. Okay end of rant. I think I shall call it a night.
