Big Island Blues

from r/BigIsland may this post live forever:

I know this will probably get deleted because Hawaiians can’t stand any criticism, no matter how valid, of their precious Big Island but here goes.
This place sucks. I have no seen so many self-righteous and entitled people. The people in Hilo think that Kona is not “Real Hawaii.” People on this island think the other islands are not “Real Hawaii.”
People here have the attitude that they do not want you on their island. They are aloof at best and downright rude and horrendous. There is such an elitist attitude about being born and raised here. However, I am thankful my family did not stay and raise me here like my grandparents because if I was born and raised here I would probably be bland, uneducated, unsophisticated, and lethargic like most people on this island. Worse I can be like these meth heads you see missing teeth.
No one here gives a damn about anything. If you have medical needs too bad the people here are too incompetent and lazy to save your life. No one cares about the people who have to take the bus. There’s not even handicap access. I’ve tried talking personally to Hawaii Mass Transit but surprise they don’t care. Just more apathetic government type workers.
It’s a nightmare here. When I go to UH Hilo I feel like I am back in high school. The attitude of the people is really aloof.
The women here are pretty bad looking and they have bad attitudes too.
The Big Island is straight up trash. The best rebuttal people come up with is “GTFO.” No one wants to talk or address the problems.
These have been some of the worst few years of my life being here on the Big Island. I came from Orange County, a place where the KKK would leave pamphlets tied to your doorknob, and I find THAT PLACE more preferable to the Big Island.
I hope the Big Island isn’t “Real Hawaii” because it’s a fucked up trash place.

It’s So Hard to Love You

I want to say that I try very hard to actually love Hawaii.  I wish I could love Hawaii.  I wish I could like Hawaii.

My family has a heritage and history here.  My grandparents were raised here.  It’s the main location my family goes on vacation.  A lot of the women in my family hula dance.  I have cousins with Hawaiian blood.

That being said, I don’t love Hawaii.  Sorry, I just don’t love it.  I never really could.

Hawaii 2018

I am going to tone it down on the Hawaii bashing.  I’m trying my best to enjoy living here.  There are very nice and lovely people.  I do not want my website to just be some anti-Hawaii and bashing blog.  There are so much better things to discuss.

Sorry if I have offended any Hawaiians.

Today I attended the induction for the Hilo chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.

Phi Theta Kappa is for people who have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.  Let’s just hope I stay there.

I want to say that the past few days have been kind of lovely.  I don’t look upon everyone on this island with disdain, there are certainly nice people and I think I experience it mostly with these school events.

I do not want to sound like an asshole with my generalizations.  I get frustrated because moving from Thailand to Hawaii is pretty much a downer for me.  Things are more expensive, attractive women are less in quantity, and things are generally extremely boring.
