It amazes me (not in any extravagantly fascinating way, of course) how some people have the audacity to say the things that actually do come out of their mouths. Or in some cases, over the internet. I mean, honestly. Some individuals do not have the balls to actually say the things they put over the internet, in real life. I feel like the internet gives them some sort of hidden confidence, I guess you could say. It allows them to portray themselves as someone they’re not.
What also bothers me is when someone can be so two-faced that you don’t even know who they are anymore. I am not necessarily talking about those who are two-faced backstabbers, but those who live two different lives. They put on a façade portraying this identity who acts and speaks differently to one person, yet also has the ability to be antithetic about their other persona to another individual. The person they are in real life soon becomes incomparable to the persons they depict themselves to be. It’s quite irritating to see someone lie through their teeth about who they are; Honestly, if you’re going to be two-faced, please make one of them pretty.

I’m still home alone. I expected at least someone to come home already. But I guess not.
My hair dried on its own, I guess that’s what happens when you wait for your dad to go buy you a blow dryer and he takes forever. I should get ready for Crystal’s cotillion in the next hour or so even though it doesn’t start til 9.. Hmm..
Okay, OBVIOUSLY you do not know me well enough if you ask me this question or anything of the sort. I eat ALL THE TIME: when I’m hungry, when I’m not hungry, when I’m tired, when I’m bored. So the answer to your question is: yes, I do eat. Constantly. It’s just that I have an amazingly fast metabolism (sometimes which is not always a cool thing). But yay for being able to eat whatever I want and not blowing up!
I will seriously cry if one day my weight catches up to me and I become the size of a whale :(
Let me tell you a little somethin' about this site we call Tumblr.
Over the past two years that I’ve been here on Tumblr, the website itself has evolved into much more than a blogging site. It has become a social networking internet sensation, much like most other websites. Now, I’m not saying I didn’t expect Tumblr to blow up; “yeah it’s a website, of course people are going to join it.” I never disagreed with that. But I just feel like it’s become something that, well, turns people into someone they’re not.
"Tumblr famous, Tumblr known," whatever you want to call it, there are those on this site who have more followers than the average blogger. Now, this happens for a multitude of reasons:
they post funny gifs or anything else that makes people burst into hysteria
they are great writers
other people have “promoted” them in a way, whether through trolling or actually relating to what they post
they have good taste in music
I’m not saying that being “tumblr famous” is a bad thing; the internet is a very powerful thing and if these people use their so-called “internet fame” for the “right things,” they could pretty much change someone’s life. They can help spread music or awareness, or anything of the sort. But when the popularity starts getting to their head, they become fake. In some cases, they change their persona in real life, others on the internet, and sadly I’ve witnessed even some individuals be fake both on the net and in real life. One thing I’ve learned about Tumblr? Some bloggers on here are only showcasing themselves as what they want to be seen as, not who they really are.
Another thing I’ve come to realize is that no matter what you post on here, you’re going to get some kind of heat for it. If you post a picture of you smoking, you’re gonna get trolled. If you troll someone, you’re going to get hated on. If you speak your mind, someone is going to disagree and cause a commotion when they can just leave it alone and move on with their lives. You’d think that speaking your mind on Tumblr would be the easiest thing to do since, well, it IS a blogging site. But unfortunately it’s the opposite. Your opinions and thoughts get twisted or someone will think that you’re “taking a subject too seriously” when all you wanted to do was let out how you feel about something. It seems like Tumblr is used for more than blogging: for cyber-bullying in some cases. No matter what, people will react negatively to what you say.
Of course everyone has their own opinions and even possess the right to reblog whatever they want and say whatever they want about it. But sometimes it feels like most are hiding behind their computer screen; that maybe being spiteful makes them feel that they have some type of superiority.
I guess the thing is.. everyone wants to be some sort of “tumblr famous,” but they fail to exist in real life.
Passion. Music artist. Just kidding. Passion. Love for Christ. Going to church for the first time. Crying. Relationships. Putting your all into something. Love being an intimacy that can’t be defined with literacy, it can’t even be explained lyrically. More than the physical, but the chemical. Chemistry. Hard work. Motivation. Perseverance. I can’t stop writing but yet I lost my train of thought so I’m just typing random stuff, lalalala. Oh, lalala reminds me of singing. Yes, back on track. Singing is my passion. Something you’re dedicated to. Faith. Love. Romance. Music. Notes on a sheet. Rhythm, tone, beat. Life, love, everything else not mentioned above.
I liked all the suggestions I received so I’ll do a post on each of them. Not all today, of course. Haha. But yeah, it’s not an essay, but it’s just scattered thoughts about that topic and wherever my mind wanders. I’ll write for a minute and thirty seconds each. Leh’go.
What is that, you ask? It’s a timed writing, and I start out with a topic and keep writing (without stopping), wherever my mind wanders. It can consist of phrases, fragments, one-word sentences, and/or complete sentences.
This should be fun, since my mind goes everywhere when I think.
Any suggestions on what topic I should start off with?
I’m having one of those days where I’m just staring at this “Add a Text Post” page, only to realize I have nothing to inspire me to write. I want to compile my thoughts into something meaningful but I’m not quite sure I know where to find the motivation or what to say.
I hate having hiccups. My remedy to make them go away is probably the weirdest ever, but it’s the only thing that works for me.
I have to hang upside down and hold my breath in order for my hiccups to go away /)__(\
Like if I’m sitting on the couch, I have to flip over so that my feet are dangling at the top of the couch and my head is hanging over the edge of the seat. It’s even worse when I’m at school because then I have to flip over in my seat. And being the obnoxious weirdo I am, I actually do it because I hate sitting there, hiccuping every 15 seconds.
Hating on someone is a total waste of your time. It’s not that hard to just avoid them or anything; why devote so many seconds, hours, even days, to degrade them and try to push your opinion across? Especially if you don’t know the person. Take time to actually figure out the person rather than concurring with whatever false assumptions you have heard about them. But even then you shouldn’t judge them, or put so much effort in trying to let them know you like them.
Obviously they must mean a great deal to you if you try so hard for them to notice your hatred.
I have this tendency of thinking conversations out in my head. You know, what I wish was said. This only leads me to false hopes sometimes, so I cannot fathom why I do it. And then after I have a conversation I always think of what I could have said to make it better or what I could have left out. It’s true when they say you should watch what you say.
“And I figured out that the reason I couldn’t get through the day as well as I can now is because I had too many things on my mind, on my plate, you know, for one person to have. So I started to eliminate some of the things that were too heavy to carry and unnecessary.”— Erykah Badu
You managed to ameliorate and make sense of all that was completely senseless in this catastrophe of life. We are independent beings at heart which, when harmonized with one another, form an alliance of strength and effortless joy. You have effectively annihilated all fortifications in which I have set before myself with the intentions of protecting my heart from further damage.
You inspire me to become the best version of myself and you encourage my success in attaining my youthful dreams. The affirmation within your voice assures me that regardless of the aftermath, whether it be negative or positive, what we have is enough for us to carry on.
You never cease to amaze me by simply being your natural self. Without my conscious knowing, you held the ability to elevate my spirits to new heights in which I never knew existed. But with you, I suppose anything is possible. Those around me are able to recognize but never will they be able to truly fathom the potential of this amplifying partnership. You are the first person who has succeeded in emancipating the inner me who has been tucked and locked away in the deepest corner of my soul.
