My THING

Did you get intrigued by the title? …  How many of you thought I was getting a little provocative?

Well, I wasn’t. Sorry, I will save that for another post. Maybe. 😉

We all have a ‘thing’. A quirk, I suppose you could say. Some have more than 1. But we all have at least 1.

I think I am one of those people that have more than 1. At least my boyfriend would say that, ha-ha.

My biggest quirk – I have this OCD with the number 4 – that’s my thing. Let me explain. For example, when I set my alarm in the morning, you will never see my alarm set for 6:00, 6:15,630 or 6:45. It will be 6:04, 6:16 (yes 16, because I don’t like 14, but I like 16 – I think it’s because 4×4 is 16) 6:24 or 6:44.

Yes, I know – so weird. Feel free to judge and press the un-follow button but believe me – it will be your loss, because usually those weird people tend to have the most interesting things to say.

Aren’t we all a little weird in one way or another? What one person may view as weird, another person would view as normal, therefore we are all weird depending on your perspective of the person and the situation. I am OK with people thinking I am weird. I would rather that than be boring. Having those weird tendencies, those weird characteristics keeps you interesting and people guessing and just wondering what the heck I am thinking or doing. I like that. I like that about me, I like that about other people. I like weird … to a point. Obviously there is a line to how much weirdness I can handle and that line is very different for every single person. Regardless … to each their own.

So there you go – that is my ‘thing’, my quirk … What’s yours? Write your comments below about your quirk, or write it in your blog and link to this so I know. I like hearing about people’s quirks.

 

Blogging

I haven’t been on here in quite some time … refer back to my 1st blog for a moment …. OK now that you have read that – I am trying to make this one last.

I usually have a million thoughts running through my head. Ideas, witty comments, rants, opinions and various other mashed together thoughts. I have always found it easier to write things out then speak what I am trying to say. When I speak its a jarbled map of unfinished sentences. In writing – it’ just poor grammar. But at least you can refer back to previous comments and some what easily follow the map as to how I got to whatever point I may have got to. That is provided I had a point. Which clearly, this blog doesn’t.

Moving on to much more exciting writing.

I didn’t say this blog would be fantastic. I enjoy writing. It can be fun. Some people say I have a talent when it comes to write (those people did not read this blog entry) I wish I could be better at it though.

I like to think of myself as an artsy person. I took Theatre in college for 2 years and loved it. I danced for about 8 years, I love being artistic, painting things, drawing things, creating things, and most of all. I love photography. But I feel like I am mediocre at best. Some people say I have a talent in all the previous mentioned, just have to develop it. But if you have a talent – shouldn’t it come developed?? I don’t want to work on it to become better- I just want to be good at it. HAHA

I have a busy life, we all do, but I only know my life – so my life is busy. I work two jobs and yes some how manage to somewhat have a social life, as well as ‘Me Time’. During that me time, I have no interest in making my brain work in order to make myself better at my so called talents. But I really wish I did have more time. I would love to take photography classes. I would love to do that as a hobby and maybe get paid a little for producing memorable photos for people. I know that day will come. I work damn hard to make sure that day comes soon.

Time – it’s such a funny thing. there is never enough of it, but I think we just don’t cherish it enough and that’s why it seems so fragile.

If only I could offer more …

First and foremost, before I blog about this;

My deepest sympathy goes towards all the families and friends who were so terribly involved with the shootings in Newtown. Words just cannot express how horrible this tragedy was and I truly hope, pray, wish whatever … that the families and friends are able to find strength in their loved ones and find peace in their hearts. I really wish there was something I could do. If anyone reading this knows someone who was unfortunate to lose a loved one – my heart, prays, thoughts are with you.

There is a big Hoax out right now about a quote from Morgan Freeman (please note, it was not said by Morgan Freeman, nor do I know who said it) But the thing is, they said it pretty darn well. My co-worker and I were having that exact conversation about how the media glorifies the villain. It is true. The media makes such a big deal about the person who did it – huge catchy headlines fill our news reports and papers. They even get nicknames and become ‘famous’. Someone who is mentally unstable and so upset enough to do such heinous crimes, usually struggles with the feeling of not being loved/unwanted/unrecognized so why not make yourself known. There are always copycats or someone trying to out do someone else. Here in Canada we recently had a man dismember someone else. After that there were 3 (that I heard of) dismemberment’s.

Tragedies will always happen. It’s an unfortunate reality in our world. Stop glorifying it. Stop making the villain to be someone to remember. Remember the children. Focus on that and pay no attention to the person who does it. THEY DON’T DESERVE our attention. Mental state or not. I am not saying hate them or ignore the sadness that it brought to their family. Because even the villains have loved ones too that have to deal with the fact that their loved one did such a crime and died as well (in some cases died)

The problem isn’t necessarily gun control. Yes, I am sure if there were stricter laws that most incidents wouldn’t happen or be quite severe. But it’s still the person. The mental state they are in when it happens. Focus on Mental Health Issues, focus on security, focus on not glorifying the villains.

Lack of gun control wasn’t the reason behind the stabbings in China the exact same day as the shootings in Newtown. Anyone hear about that? No, it wasn’t blasted all over the news quite like the happenings in Newtown. But a man stabbed almost 20 children there. I don’t know the details of the story so do not quote me on my facts. I do not know if anyone died. I hope everyone is OK.

I could blog for a long time about this tragedy. I wish I could say a lot. But words just cannot explain what I am feeling, what the world is feeling and most importantly – what the families and friends that are feeling during this time.

Focus on the victims. Remember them.

Again, my thoughts and prayers go out to every family member and friends of the ones that were lost on Friday. Remember the amazing time you had with them and all the smiles they brought to you. Find it in your heart, your friends and family the strength that you CAN and WILL make it through this hard time. The whole world is behind you

Honeymoon Rose

(I had originally posted this last week, but for some strange reason, it did not post, so I am re-writing it, with hopes it is at least half as good as the first one. Be nice followers and readers)

Love – can you define it? Can you really understand what it is and when you are in love? Studies say you don’t fall in love with someone until about 4-6 months after dating (*side-note*I love studies, haha some of them are just such a crock of bs and you wonder how these studies are conducted – more on that in another blog I think.. moving on). Before then it’s just lust or infatuation. Which makes sense because that is also considered the honeymoon stage – after that comes the sweatpants, no makes up, burps, farts and our ‘true-lovable-selves’.

That being said – This whole Bachelor/Bachelorette thing. It is so unrealistic. I have only ever watched 3 maybe 4 episodes of the entire Series. Most recently this latest Canada’s bachelor episode (the final one)

I often make fun of or get annoyed with little teenagers (and some early 20 years olds) about how they are so ‘in love’ when they have only been dating for a couple weeks (sometimes days)  they are not in love. Now we have grown, mature adults, that should know better – IT’S NOT LOVE. You have only been with the guy/girl for approximately 2 months.

Let’s add in the fact that they are going on DREAM DATES planned out so well, and so perfectly for adventures, good times, & entertainment. No awkward ‘So dinner and movie again tonight babe?’

Now add in the fact that he/she has also been with other suitors for the last 2 months as well.

lastly, add in that they are also ‘falling in love’ with those other suitors.

Correct me if I am wrong, but if you are truly in love with someone – you can’t be in love with someone else. It’s not true, it’s not real, it’s not fair. I am truly and deeply in love with my boyfriend (we have been together for over a year, so it’s legit y’all) and the thought of being with someone else, or in love with someone else, it’s not possible in my mind. I couldn’t imagine kissing someone else, having sex, poking fun of, laughing, wearing my sweatpants, and all the other joys of being in a relationship – doing that with someone else. I don’t want to. Plus, I have been cheated on in the past and I could never make someone I love feel that way. It hurts. It hurts bad.

Yes – I know there are Polygamists out there who believe you can love and marry more than one person – to each their own. But I HIGHLY doubt, and I am willing to bet, all those Bachelors/Bachelorettes – are not Polygamists. Therefore, my point stands 🙂

So, this whole honeymoon stage that all these suitors are in. Most times everyone just seems so perfect. They find the most attractive men and women for this show – which makes you wonder why they are single if they are so darn good looking and seemingly perfect, and of course the 1 starring in the show is a millionaire. That being said (and this goes for the show Millionaire Matchmaker as well) most times the Millionaire Bachelor/Bachelorette can’t find love because they keep finding people who are trying to use them or love their money/fame. Well gosh darn-it – lets help these poor folks out and create a show of perfection where they can find their one true love on NATIONAL TELEVISION. This will for sure attract only the most suitable candidates who are not at all looking for their 10 minutes of fame *cough Whitney cough*. Not a single person applying to be hooked up with a millionaire will be a gold digger or fame seeking whore *cough* Whitney *Cough*   ………. No wonder they are millionaires – they are geniuses.

I know these are huge shows, and I will probably get a lot of hate for bashing it. Well, it’s my opinion. I don’t enjoy those shows because of the unrealistic nature of them and the way woman are crazy on the show and make us all seem crazy (and I can say this because apparently Canadians now know how Italians felt when Jersey Shore came out and they were representing Italians and the culture… embarrassing). I don’t enjoy watching catty women and men, and drama. I never got into any of those shows, Big Brother, Bachelor Pad, The Real Housewives (tell me what exactly is ‘real’ about them?) and so on. I did enjoy The Hills somewhat when Lauren Conrad was on it, because I enjoyed watching her career blossom .. i would just fast forward through Heidi and Spencer (which was funny because by the end of it I didn’t know who the big boobed, big lipped, plastic thing was – apparently it was Heidi).

Oh Reality Shows. It seems like that is all there is.

I really do hope all those attractive boys and girls find love the real way soon.

Generation Identity Crisis

Every generation is a problem generation. The flappers, the stoners, the hippies, the hard rock, technology kids … and so on. People always complain about the ‘teenagers’ and how they are such a problem and ‘when I was a kid, we never did that, we were never horrible like that.’

Well guess what – you were! Each generation of teenager brings a new ‘horrible’ trend or general characteristic trait. I think now a days, it’s the cyber bullying or ’20yr old’ 12 year olds – you know what I mean by that?  (by the way, I am aware I sound hypocritical in ways but I accept the fact that I, and my generation, had their issues as well. Every generation will complain about the one that followed them.)

First, I will talk about the cyber bullying. I can’t imagine being in high school now with Twitter, and Facebook, Kik, rate me, date me, hate me, …. all those crazy websites that make it so easy to bully another person, and do it anonymously. I know there are sites where you can have people come on and ask you questions, make comments all under ‘Anonymous’ It’s horrible really.

Kids these days  – technology has made it an entirely different war zone out there. When I was a kid – we were never that mean, never cyber bullied by posting tweets and/or comments anonymously … we said it to their damn face!!

It’s sad really how materialistic and dependent these children have become on the world of technology and thoughts of other people. They have accounts everywhere and are determined to get the most likes, comments, followers, friends,…..whatever it may be. From their status updates about their relationships, their ‘fat’ day pictures, to my all-time favourite – the album dedicated to themselves consisting of self pics in their bathroom mirror.  (that being said, I am guilty of posting oneself picture in front of my beautiful backdrop of a shower curtain – but people wanted to see my Halloween costume, so it’s a legit excuse right?!)

It makes me sad to see these 12-18 year olds looking and acting like they are 20+. I know for a fact in the region I live in, there are 4 (probably more) bars that I refuse to go to because they are littered with high schoolers with fake ID’s thinking they are the coolest people ever …. until they are face planted in their own vomit because they are just can’t handle the booze! Or getting an STD from the dirty man who always has his movember stash neatly combed year round.

I can honestly say, I used a fake ID once in my life and it was the day before my 19th birthday. My best friend’s birthday is the day before mine, and we were the last of our group to turn the big 19! And don’t get me wrong, I partied before then and after that. I had my fill and I still enjoy a night out or two.

People want to grow up way too fast! WHY? Growing up definitely has it’s advantages but trust me – there is no nap time when you are older! Life is hard when your a highschooler – because of drama, just stay out of it. Life is hard when your older because of debt, responsibility, children, etc. You can’t get out of all that as easily as you can get out of the high school drama. So enjoy it while you can.

Before I wrap up my little rant, I will tell one last story.

I bought a top, a very nice top that wasn’t too tight, but hugged my curves in a sophisticated way. Nice scoop neck that left more for the imagination than most ‘bar’ shirts but still gave a hint of what was in store. It was classy, sexy and sophisticated. I paired it with some jeans and boots and I looked pretty darn good I think. This top went just past my butt cheeks and the lady at the store complimented it (and she wasn’t on commission) and it even looked great on the manikin. A little while later I was at the bar, having a beer or two with some friends and when I turned around there was a girl who I seriously doubted was 19, wearing the exact same top as me – AS A DRESS!! I so badly wanted to shut this girl down but I think her butt cheek smile said it all. I simply shook my head and walked away, praying for her dignity and self-respect to kick in soon – and that she would fall over and leave nothing to the imagination because I highly doubt she was wearing any underwear.

I really wish I could smack kids these days and teach them to have better self-respect (boys included). But all I can do is shake my head and walk away and know that when they are my age, they will understand (hopefully) and will probably be bitching about how horrible teenagers are and they were never like that….. -_-

For the record – I am 26 and as a teenager I was never like that 🙂 Although I did cause my parents grief with my attitude for about 2 years of high school. My generation – we weren’t perfect either (some of us still aren’t)

So before you bitch and complain about how horrible teenagers are, just stop and think about what you were like. Then just shake your head and walk away.
