If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past couple of years, it’s that our parents are just trying to understand us. You think that they nag you and yell at you for no reason, but they do it simply because they care. Because they don’t want you to mess up your life or make the same mistakes they did. But it’s hard for them to even get a glimpse of what it’s like to be in your position when you’re not even meeting them halfway. You have to cut them some slack sometimes.
The way every parent treats their child is different, I understand that. But in general, I can’t begin to fathom why teenagers (who are still sometimes just children) don’t give their parents enough credit.
Every teenager wants their privacy, but I’ve come to realize that nothing has to be kept private when you just are open with your parents and tell the truth. It’s so much easier that way—trust me, I’ve learned the hard way. For example, I don’t understand why certain people go crazy over their parents asking them simple questions like, “So who’s this boy/girl you’re hanging out with?” or “How do you feel about this certain situation?” I mean honestly, they’re just asking a really simple question and unless you have something to hide, there’s no reason to get frustrated over them talking to you.
All I’m saying is, it’s easiest to just be open and truthful. If you aren’t, things are just so much more complicated. You wouldn’t have to go crazy over your parents’ questions if you just didn’t hide anything from them.
i will forever respect simon cowell like if he tells someone “GOD YOU’RE HORRIBLE” i will be like “YES SIMON IS THE GENIUS LISTEN TO HIM” because like hello he is the reason for one direction aka the biggest boy band in the world HE OBVIOUSLY KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING
so i’m watching videos of one direction right now and i stumbled across an interview with harry that took place the day after the concert and omg harry referenced my “hella” question in his interview I’M DYING RIGHT NOW
The boys had a show at the Gibson Amphitheatre today in LA. My family and I just so happened to go Universal Studios today [where the amphitheatre is located (we’re on vacation in Los Angeles)]. My cousin and I were aware that the boys were there and hoped we would see them, but we didn’t have our expectations too high. Anyways, my family went on the studio tour, and, while we were on it, my cousin and I noticed the boys’ tour bus. At that point, we were pretty hyped up. As the rest of my family went to venture throughout the park, my cousin and I stayed behind at a certain area that we shall call “the secret location.” We waited there from 2 to 6 (the boys’ concert started at 3 and ended at 5). From where we were standing, I noticed someone riding a bike, but I was too far to be able to make out the details of his face. However, when the being om the bike came closer, we noticed it was Zayn!!! As mad as I still was because of how he acted at soundcheck the other day, I still was able to casually say, “Hi Zayn!” Not all fangirl though because I didn’t want to seem crazy. He came closer to us to say hi, it was great. Then he had to leave for the concert. After the concert was over, we noticed the boys’ security guard (not Paul) drive them away in their van, escorted by 2 police cars. At that point we decided to stay at the secret location to wait for them to come back for their show at 8. When the boys came out of the car, we saw Louis in his turquoise pants and white/blue striped shirt. Harry also saw us and smiled. Then they ran inside for their next soundcheck. Girls eventually found the secret location and were freaking out. There weren’t too many girls, but enough of them were there to scream and freak out over nothing. My cousin and I left because we had dinner reservations.
Although we couldn’t get pictures with the boys today, I’m glad we still had an encounter with them. We were the only fans outside of the concert who got to talk to them and were acknowledged by them, so I’m really happy. Yay for our second One Direction encounter/conversation this week ^_^
those vip tickets were like the best thing that i’ve ever held in my hands
SOUNDCHECK WAS THE BEST PART OF YESTERDAY only because we were second row and I got to ask the boys a quesiton and they answered it omg and for the 5 seconds that i was asking my question all their attention was focused on me SO NOW ONE DIRECTION KNOWS OF MY EXISTENCE and zayn smiled and said hi to me twice, harry and i shared eye contact for literally 2 minutes, he kept smiling and saying hi to me, and i talked to the boys at Q&A omg best day ever ok bye
Just took my senior portraits! Ahh, it was so much fun. The photographer at JP Impressions was really fun to work with. I saw all the proofs at the studio and I really liked a lot of them! My favorite one was one in a feather boa; too bad I can’t put that one in the yearbook :( But yeah, I had fun! It didn’t really hit me until I took pictures in my cap and gown.. My mom almost started crying! It’s crazy how fast time flies.
Yay for being the first senior of the season to take their senior portraits! ;)
What bothers me is when a girl (or girls in general, for that matter) don’t realize that their body shape isn’t everything. I know this girl who is “average”—not overweight, not underweight, but just the right size for her. She constantly feels the need to be skinny and starve herself in order to lose weight. She’s given up all her favorite foods just to eat light salads every six hours.
You see, I’m underweight. I’ve never really been the weight that I’m supposed to be, and to see girls wanting to be the size of a stick, kills me. Being “skinny” is not all that it’s cracked up to be. I’ve been picked on for my weight, and my abilities to do certain tasks have been underestimated because of my size. Girls always want to be so much smaller than what’s healthy for them, and that’s detrimental not only to their physical being, but their mental state as well.
I know it’s not really my business if a girl wants to lose weight or not. I’m just saying that I’ve been skinny my whole life, and while it seems “perfect,” it’s really not. People always tell me, “You’re so small, I wish I was as skinny as you!” Honestly, you really don’t. It’s not healthy for me and it’s really hard for me to gain weight, no matter how much I eat. That might be a plus to a lot of people, but to me it isn’t. I’d rather be healthy than fit society’s standards.
Today, Isaac came over for breakfast and cooked me my first omelette. It was pretty good! He also planned a picnic in the park for our date today, which I thought was really cute. “We can have a picnic since that’s something you’ve always wanted” :) It was fun! Even though it was pretty windy, I still had a good time with him. Always do! ^_^ There were lots of laughs and we listened to some music. He even let me do his eyebrows, hehe. Good day, good day.
