So this is what I wore to class last week, on Friday to be exact. No reason to talk about the items as, well, there isn't a real story behind them that I haven't told you guys yet recently, and you don't need me to tell you this is a plaid shirt, now do you? HA!
My face looked les dorky in real life. At least I hope so. I'm one of those people who look hella tired if they have to get up early, even if they slept like 8 hours. I'm pretty sure my lifetime (ok just 20- odd years) of owning multiple cats has poisoned me with their need for sleep and laziness. THANKS A LOT CATS
I'm such a weirdo.
Have any of you read that GOMI blog-hating-blogs yet? It always saddens me when I see how much some people thrive on negativity. I don't get it: sure, some things annoy me. I don't like every blog out there. In fact, I think some bloggers wear fug outfits. However, I am aware of the fact that my opinions, ideas and tastes are completely arbitrary. There isn't some universal standard as to what is pretty/stylish/fashionable/whatever, so who am I to judge? Why would I be so cocky as to think the whole world wants to know about me hating x or y? Opinions are like assholes, you know. Everybody's got one. Yeah I know that saying is way overplayed but it's totally true.
I don't get why someone would start a blog just to spew hatred on other people, let alone how a blog like that attracts so many haters-on. Turns out, once again, negativity is more popular than positivity. It might be a very unoriginal comeback to call all the haters jealous, but most of the time they are. Basic logic: if you don't like a blog or the stuff a blogger wears, you just shouldn't follow the blog as the internet is HUGE and you are bound to found something you DO like. However, if you keep coming back just to be annoyed at how fug the blogger looks, you are probably doing so because you somehow feel as if this particular blogger doesn't deserve the popularity. Hence -> jealousy. Lemme break it to ya: you are not the boss of the internet/good taste, and you don't decide what is good or bad.
As someone who has had negative periods of time in her life (yes I was a bitchy teenager once, thank god I grew out of it), let me tell you: life is so much more rewarding and satisfying if you just ignore the things that bother you or put the stupidity of your frustrations in perspective by thinking about the fact that you are probably hurting someone by bitching about them. Sure, bitching can be fun, gossiping with friends is a popular guilty pleasure. But when you go out of your way to publicly bash someone, does the "fun" part really weigh out the "I'm probably really hurting someone now" part? And no, just saying that "they should know that by putting themselves out there, they are asking for judgment" doesn't entitle you to anything. If someone gets hurt, you are still responsible, whether you want to be or not.
My tips: grow out of it, put yourself in the other person's shoes, ignore the annoying offender if she/he isn't hurting you personally and start focusing on the positive things in life. Heck, I might just start reading some Chicken Soup for the Soul books or call my Age of Aquarius enthousiast mom on the phone just to balance out all the bitchiness I have read over there. Positivity for the win!
