Jewish Holiday - Lag BaOmer

Ok so first of all I would like to apologize for not posting anything in the past few weeks. This is because it's the exam season and I basically spend most of my days studying for tests.

Now, Lag BaOmer.

Lag BaOmer (Pronounced Lug Buh-om-er) means the 33rd of the Omer in Hebrew- Lag (ל"ג) means 33 as every letter in the Hebrew alphabet has a numerical equivalent (This is called Gematria). Strangely enough, the origin of this holiday is not known for sure but it is thought that it is the day Rabbi Akiva and his 24 thousand student died from a plague (Yay!).

To be honest, I don't care about the source. I care about what you do on Lag BaOmer which is burning shit. And as everybody knows, burning stuff is fun (except if it's your house- that's not fun). Basically everyone makes a bonfire and just have fun untill from like 8 in the evening to 7 in the morning.

Bedtime story: A bunch of dumbass kids who had been throwing firecrackers into the fire all evening decided to throw one at the trees. The trees got really mad (Like for real) and lit themselves on fire in order to punish the kids. This caused the dumbass children to run away in fear. One of the trees was probably magical or something because his fire destroyed him and started burning other trees. As the trees were burning there was like a column of ash which later spread around the air and got into my hair. 
Eventually the magical fire got boring and we called the firefighters who afterwards fought the magical angry tree fire.
What a happy ending. After that, I wanted to find the dumbass kids so I could teach them a lesson by lighting their nuts on fire but as I said before, the trees scared them away.

Here is a series of pictures for your enjoyment:
Sexy Flames.

More Flames.
These people were later found dead.

That's it for now. As I'm running out of blog ideas so tell me whatever you're interested in.
Take care.

Healthy again, traumatized.

Well I'm healthy again, not as good as I was before but I'm getting there!
I had a pre-SAT in computers and I got 93 and I'm happy considering the fact I looked like a zombie on the day of the test. On another matter-Pro Tip: When hurrying to the bathroom do not pull down zipper at full force as certain areas may get cut, bleed and prevent you from walking straight for several days.

Tell me what you want me to write about,

I hate being sick

It's been awhile!
I've been sick for the past few days because this guy who I study with passed it on to me D:

So until now I've been using like 2 packets of Kleenex every day, my nose is as red as a tomato and I'm stuck in front of the tv. I hate being sick as I usually get sick only like once a year and when I do, it hits hard.

Anyways, when I get better I'll start blogging again.
Take care, Yono.

Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day

In Israel, today we're "celebrating" Holocaust And Heroism Remembrance Day.
It is to remember the six million Jews who died in the hands of the German Nazis and their accessoiries (As it is said in each of the ceremonies). On the day, at 10:00AM, there's a country-wide 1-minute long alarm during which everyone stands in complete silence, remembering those who died.

This is, understandibly, extremely depressing as it is featured everywhere. At schools, on TV, the radio, etc. At schools it's especially horrifying as holocaust survivors talk about themselves during those years.
This is not really an informational post, I just wanted to note this so people think about it as I find it to be very important and as the amount of holocaust survivors is dwindling, people should remember it. This day falls every year on 27th of Nissan (Jewish calendar), unless it's a Saturday (Holy day) in which case it is postponed by a day.

Here's a link to the site of the organization responsible for archiving hundreds of thousands of items from the holocaust and interviwing thousands of Holocaust survivor, saving their stories forever.

I know this post has the structure of a short story written by a 5 year-old, so excuse me for that.
I'll go be depressed now, good day.
