This post is really just for Charlotte. I haven’t been following her for that long, but she is such a sweet girl, and she tries to help people the best she can in every aspect of life, whether it is talking about fitness, health, sex, or whatever you really ask her. She gives up a lot of her time to help people and answer questions, and I think that is something super sweet. Not to mention she is really nice! We all live busy lives and have our own things to deal with, so why? Why would anyone take the time to do something so unnecessary as to send any sort of negative message to her or anyone for that matter?
I don’t know if your mom taught you this, but if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Words hurt. I’ve seen it more than once on tumblr, and it really just makes me angry. If you’re angry at someone, or disagree with the way they are living, thats your opinion and you should probably keep that to yourself. Under no circumstance do I think its okay to tell someone that they are a horrible person, or that they’re a slut, whore, or whatever. Its her body and its her decision, and there is nothing wrong with having sex if you are being safe. And well, its just plain none of your business.
That’s not the point though. The point of this post, really, is to just tell you that no one deserves to be put down like that. These people blogging about their lives are opening up their world to you, and maybe you should take the time the appreciate them for that, for making the world a bit more interesting because they are sharing their world with us. And if you can’t appreciate it, then move on and read about someone else’s life instead.
It’s a real thing. No lie.
For months now, I’ve been hearing people rave about this greek yogurt - its benefits and its awesome taste, but since I live in Canada, I couldn’t get any. Last week, I was in Loblaws with my mom, and I glanced in the yogurt section, and saw it as I was walking past, and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I took a second look, and there it was! Then I had to get it. Even if it costed me $1.99 a pop!
Then I went home and devoured it. I don’t even think devoured describes it. The first bite, tasted sour and weird, but as I mixed it with the fruit, it just got better and better. I keep thinking about it, but seriously, $1.99?
If theres a yogurt god out there, please consider that I’m a poor student that is just trying to make it through school right now and that I can’t afford to pay $1.99 per yogurt.
Anyway, if you live in Canada, and want to try it too, see if its sold near you by clicking here! I guess I’m lucky to be living in this part of Canada, I feel like we get everything first when things start migrating from the states.
I hope that every one of you is able to appreciate and love the people in your life that matter to you most. This day isn’t limited to just a significant other, its all about celebrating the love in your life, whether its the love between you and your parents, the love between you and your friends, the love between you and your pet, or the love you should have for yourself.
You don’t have to send them cards,
but who doesn’t love chocolates? Just appreciate them and let them know that you love them. Even though they should know, sometimes its feels nice to hear it.
I hope you guys all have a wonderful day!
For Valentine’s day this year, my ovaries decided to give me a gift. I don’t really appreciate the pain though. In addition, I will be spending all day with my biochemistry book in preparation for my test coming up on Friday.
No complaints though. Make up day (aka excuse to eat lots of chocolate and hang out with Francis all day and spend the night with him) is scheduled for Sunday - Monday since in Canada, it is Family Day on Monday in conjunction with my “Reading week,” which is also just the less fun sounding name for Spring break, except, its not in spring. Its in the middle of winter.
Today has been such a long and dreadful day, so I thought I’d remind myself of the good things I’m going to do this weekend!
- hang out with Francis
- sleep, and probably eat some yummy food
- haircut (its almost to my butt, so I guess that means I really have to cut it)
- studying for biochem (not so much fun, but I know I’ll be happy I put in the time next week when I’m complaining I need more time)
- seeing Francis, and watching The Vow. I love Rachel McAdams!
- grocery shopping as per usual
- shopping, apparently there are some good deals out there, so I’m going to go look for them and get some cheap stuff!
- head back to school and study some more!
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! What are your plans?
I’ve been meaning to talk about this for awhile now, but sort of never got to it. I was going to set a bunch of new years resolutions for myself, and I had, but I really didn’t want to restrain myself to just new years, so I decided that if I noticed something about myself that needed to change, I’d do it, new years or not.
There is something about me that I’ve always hated, but never had the heart to do anything about and that is always feeling guilty for things I shouldn’t. I feel like I’m always doing things I don’t want to do, but I do them anyway because I feel obligated to. So I’ve starting saying no. I’ve always been terrible with that, but I’ve made it part of my list of things to do. I’m going to say no when I really don’t want to. I say yes way too often and it takes a toll on me. So here’s to growing up, learning to say no, making changes, and improving things in my life.
I have these things every once in a while, when I just feel overwhelmed. Not because I have too much work on my hands, even though I do have lots, but I feel emotionally overwhelmed. There are always times when I question myself and I constantly ask myself, “Stephanie, is this what you really want?” The answer is always I don’t know. I mean, how can I possibly know if this is what I want? There are a lot of things in my life where I feel like I have no choice. I hate a lot of the things I have to do, things that are required for the future, but I do them anyways because I “have to.” And in actuality, I don’t, but I do it anyway.
I continually put myself through this, and after I have some sort of epiphany about it all, it dwindles down, and I’m right back where I started, pondering if I made the right decision. If sticking through this will even really help me at all.
There are so many things I want in life. So many. I’m sure that all of you have felt this way. There are so many things that you can experience, so many places you can go, so many things you can see, feel, and touch. And I feel like if I continue going down the road I’m on right now, I won’t be able to do all the things I’ve wanted to do.
And then someone reminded me today that its not true. I may have chosen a path filled with lots of hard work and dedication, but that does not mean in any way that I have to give up everything I want and dedicate it all to my job. That certainly does not mean I wouldn’t put 100% effort into my job, but that also does not mean that I have to put 100% of my life into my job. This is just to remind myself that if i don’t try for my dream, I know I’ll regret it. So at least I can tell myself I tried. I know I’ll forget I said this, but in this moment, I feel stronger, and this is going to help me grow.
Everytime someone says, “Not to sound racist, but…” it is always followed by a racist comment. Just cause you announce that you might say something racist, doesn’t make it any less racist.
This goes the same with the saying, “No offense, but…” Just cause you try to excuse your following comment, does not make it any less offensive.
Not that I’m not guilty of any of this. I’m sure we all are at some point, but just something funny that I’ve been thinking about.
Me: Let’s name our pets after fruits (cause if you don’t all know already, I have a bunny named Mango)
Him: Okay. Watermelon.
Me: That’s too long. Melon?
Me: That’s cute, but I don’t like kiwis.
Me: … That’s an animal.
Him: Oh, I meant CANTALOPE!
I just really really like them. As cups, as holders, as food storage. If there is a club for jar fans, sign me up please.
