no one likes to be stood up and I probably hold the world record for how many times I have been stood up. so what I would like to talk about today is etiquette for meeting procedures. how long do you wait before leaving if you have been stood up? I usually wait 20 minutes which is a very generous amount of time if the person is simply running late. However, I am always early to things so if the time to meet rolls around and they aren’t there I assume I am about to be stood up. Do you order food/drink before they arrive? I usually order a drink and then wait a while and if I am actually hungry I will order some food. What do you say to the person if they do stand you up? well I usually just send a text asking them if they forgot and if they apologize I will make a time to meet them again. What if someone stands you up more than once? I usually cut that person out of my circle of friends and wont ask to hang out again.
I have never been very good at making friends my own age so here are some tips, be yourself and the type of people meant to be in your life will come. be happy, no one likes a whiner. be encouraging and you will make many many friends. be likeable, so like shower and dont be a raging bunghole. short post for today because I am exhausted
I am all about loving yourself. If a guy or girl breaks your heart and makes you feel worthless that is the most important time for you to love yourself. women in particular have a lot of body issues because a guy doesn’t have to have a six pack to be a mega hottie but if a girl has a little jiggle in her butt people call her fat and put her down. not everyone can be a size 0. Women are all different and should all be told that they are beautiful. So women, be healthy and only work out to be healthy, like if you get super winded going up the stairs it may be time to work out a little but do not just work out to lose weight because your body knows what it wants and when you gain a little weight you may be experiencing some changes, so eat healthy and love yourself.
so I wanted to talk today about dating and how every girl ever has been spoiled by the way disney shows love. Disney makes it so simple, just be in danger, peril, some form of life threatening situation and your prince will magically show up and whisk you off into the sunset to live happily ever after and I hate that crap. recently Disney has been doing a VERY good job with their new princesses, Merida, Anna/Elsa, and Rapunzel. Because all three of these girls had goals, and didn’t need a man to make them “happily ever after” because they were strong enough to save themselves from peril. (OK so Rapunzel is on the fringe of needing flinn… but still she was empowered with that frying pan) and my personal favorite being Anna because yes in the end she does date christof BUT she saves herself AND her sister and fixes the kingdom without his help. So what I am trying to say here is girls, stop waiting around for a prince to come and save you. Be a strong powerful woman who can have a boy if she wants one but do not be a weak little princess who needs a man to save her from harm. When you are at your lowest is when you need yourself to be strong so that you can grow and rise up above your situation. also, dont marry a man you just met. that is all.
just because something is expensive and name brand does not make it any better than something off of a clearance rack. sure its hard sometimes to find your size on the clearence side of a store but if you look hard enough you can save yourself a lot of money. I am a big believer in not paying more than 15$ for pants and i hate when people like AE and other companies try to charge like 50-60 bucks for jeans. those jeans better be made out of gold for that extortionist pricing. sometimes you have to look hard for sales, but sometimes they sneak up on you. today I was buying a few items for school and i wanted some jeans so i tried on this pair that was on a 3$ rack at rue 21 and they fit very nicely so i bought them. then my sister wanted some shoes and i also needed shoes for school so we went in and she is obsessed with keds and had to have a pair. so I was looking at vans because I am very alternative/ punk with my style, the price tag on mine came up to be 25.97 already clearanced. so I decided to get them and then the cashier rang me up and they only cost me 8.38 and it was a wonderful day. so my advice to you is don’t be a clothing snob. the clearance stuff is just as good if not better because it is an adventure to look through some of the absurd items to hunt for the good ones.
today I would like to talk about kindness. A friend of mine went to a young girls with cerebral palsy. He helped her rotten, rude family set up the whole party because they were being jerks. He grilled all the food, and on top of that he gave the girl a beautiful present (not cash, her family would have taken it from her) and It touched my heart a little because usually people just blow off special needs and treat the people who have them and cannot help having them like garbage. What you probably don’t know about me is that I have two little brothers, wonderful boys with so much life, who have mild special needs, and when I see people being rude to them it breaks my heart and fires up my temper because I love those boys so much, I would do anything to keep them happy and safe. People like the guy who made that girls party so nice should be celebrated because that in its own way is a small act of heroicness. So I challenge all of you, if you don’t already, volunteer, do something for someone who is different, give back to the community because life isn’t all about you and there are people who suffer everyday, who struggle everyday. Go make a difference in someones life, you won’t regret it.
Everyone is different. You never know the hurt that someone is going through. People are cruel to one another and it is wrong. We are ALL human, every one of us no matter your race, sexual preferences, gender, or disabilities. We should accept everyone and stop shaming people for being who they are. Be yourself, be happy, but don’t be a jerk to someone else for being themselves.
I intend to post on here once a day if I have the time to, I just think that I have things that should be said.
I have witnessed so many girls (this can apply to boys and men too I just specifically understand the female struggle) lately that out and out hate themselves and it breaks my heart because of the way society treats people for being unique beautiful creatures. I hate when I see girls who are young and gorgeous who hate themselves, I myself was dragged down into this hole and still struggle everyday to get out. Depression, anger, self hate, all these things that we feel is because we are shown pictures of women who are blonde, over six feet tall, and weight about a hundred pounds soaking wet and I am so sick of it. Women, people in general, come in ALL shapes, ALL sizes and ALL colors. The fact of the matter is that these “super” models aren’t very super at all, in fact prolonged anorexia/bulimia can cause permanent hair loss, stomach ulcers, destroyed teeth, and death if taken to extremes. For these women to be starving themselves is not only hurting them but hurting everyone. Little girls playing with barbies that are so disproportionate that they could not POSSIBLY be a real woman. So listen up ladies, I am not saying that you should be unhealthy but I am saying that if you aren’t a size zero SO WHAT!! obviously if you are naturally skinny you are fine to be that size but seriously stop saying that you are ugly, fat, and all those other things you say. Go right now to the mirror and say something nice about yourself. ANYTHING. “I have nice eyes.” “I am a good friend.” But most of all tell yourself this ” I AM VALUABLE AND I AM BEAUTIFUL.” because if you have confidence in yourself you will be able to do anything you want in this life. Do this every day and I promise that even if you don’t believe it at first you will feel better quickly.
I suppose I made this Tumblr a while ago and anyone who knows me knows that I have a lot to say so I think I am going to start posting things that are on my mind on here.
