We Were Born to Die: I hate the stereotypes of owning reptiles and of reptiles themselves....
I hate the stereotypes of owning reptiles and of reptiles themselves. Reptiles are beautiful. I own bearded dragons, and they’re like little dinosaurs. They all have different personalities, they have veggies they like more than the other, each may or may not like bath time, (2/3 don’t 😚) they…
I have a zoo of animals and hate when people think owning reptiles is dirty or weird. I also hate how people judge me for having a ferret. Ferrets are great pets who do not smell if taken care of correctly. I hate people who judge others for owning ” Alternative ” animals.
People my age do these 5 thing that bother me
This is a bit of a rant. I realized a few things about people around my age that are just annoying. After one discussion with this girl who was so stuck up and acted like a brat… I really realized that it is not just a few people it is a lot of people my age (some are even older and act this way).
1. They are not able to pick their battles wisely.
I watch people fight endlessly over stupid shit. People “burn bridges” with people too quickly. Fighting over who is more this or more that. Fighting with everyone just makes you look like a jerk. Choose your battles. Choose what bridges to burn. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT.
I had a girl a few years ago send me wicked nasty message on facebook. Want to know what really amazed me… I had never even seen this girl. She went to my high school but I had never even run into her. I was baffled. I printed out the message and went up to her and her friends and said, “Hey ——! I didn’t even know who you were till you sent this. Please read this to my face.” Her friends looked at her and she said, ” Ugh no… like are you kidding?” I read the message out loud to her and her friends. The majority of her friends walked away from her. All of her friends who had walked away told everyone what she had done. She lost a lot of friends because she wanted to start a fight with a stranger.
2. They don’t admit when they are wrong.
Look if you did something wrong… Do not point fingers at other people. It is okay to make mistakes and be wrong. Things go better if you admit to your mistake.
I worked a store where a manager sold two things that he knew could go together. The woman who bought them came back. I tried to help her best I could. My manager wouldn’t admit he was wrong and pointed fingers at everyone else and said it was our issue now. He got in a lot of trouble for what he did. If he had admitted he was wrong the issue wouldn’t have last 2 weeks but only 2 - 3 days.
3. They feel like people should give them what they want.
The countless posts about not getting this or that expensive item for this holiday or what not. Mom and dad do not owe you shit. They put food on your plate, a roof over your head, clothes on your back and they love you very much. Your boy/girlfriend shouldn’t need to spend half of their monthly income on you either. A new iPod should not be a validation for their love for you.
I had a friend who girlfriend expected him to drive her all over and buy her things. She acted like she was 5 and would go ” YOU DON’T LOVE ME!! ” if he didn’t buy or do something for her. He broke up with her and to this day she can’t find someone who doesn’t find her greedy.
4. They are rude.
I have seen so many young people tip very poorly. They never say thank you. They never say please. They cut you off when you talk. I have seen a drink thrown at a waiter by someone who was around 20. I watched a group of girls leave $2 for a $50 meal and they left a huge mess. Do not even get me started about the poor public transit driver. I always say at least thank you when getting off the train.
5. They think they know everything.
They think if they have done it once they know how to do it all. This goes for a lot of things. Even if someone around them knows more about the topic or the answers and facts. A great example is the stuck up girl I had to put up with today. Some information that might be helpful for this story. I have been in cosmetology school for 2 years. I have taken dozens upon dozens of advanced color and cutting classes from many well known companies and people. I have seen the best and worst of colors and cuts. There is always more to learn and I do not know it all. My friends girlfriend had her hair lightened and put an intensive color on it. It looked great but you could tell her hair had been damaged from the lighter used. I told her I loved the color ( a nice red purple ) and that the damage could be reversed if she did a few treatments to it. She said she was going to change it to a lighter blue. The friend who had done her hair starts telling me their plans for fixing it. Which includes a really harsh lightener that would not pull the red out and damage the hair like crazy. I tell both of them that the plan they had will not work. Her friend starts telling it will work because she had done it many times before and what not. I got into the details of why it would not work and that it would cause so much damage she would have to cut her hair to prevent it from becoming even more damaged. The friend couldn’t drop it and except that I knew more. I wasn’t rude at all and told them they could do what they wanted but I wanted to give them my advice. My friend looked at the three of us and just pointed to me and said, ” You should listen to her. She knows what she is doing. She has more training and has been doing this for years. ” I won’t say anything that I am not sure on. Ever.
I am done for now!
CNN Opinion article: Big deal: You can be fat and fit.
To start off I am not thin but I am overweight and I think this article is just plain stupid. I am all for bigger people being comfortable in there body, BUT also being healthy. There is such thing as weighing too much and too little. When you are so big that an MRI technician says no to you… maybe you should think about losing so weight. I recently had an MRI and had no issues. Also if that MRI breaks… Where will the hospital get another one. They are very pricey and really a lot of work to set up and such. What about the other people who need to use that MRI who will not be able too after it been broken.
Now about the teenager who was told by a nurse that if she lost weight she would have that illness go away. It may have not even been about her doctor discriminating against her cause she was fat but because the doctor was just a bad doctor who does this to everyone. When I was a teen I was told many times that maybe I would not have this issue or that problem if I lost weight. I was still given medications for issues I was having because I had a good doctor.
When you are so overweight that your doctor is willing to try and give you dangerous drugs, recommend diets or even surgery, maybe it is time you listen. Other friends of mine and myself have tried pills and diets. None of us are big enough for surgery. That ” starvation diet ” is your body getting used to getting less food and having to burn your body fat. Any drug can be dangerous for any person.
You can be overweight and fit but there is a limit to that. I might be over weight but I am one of the only people out of my friends, who are all different weights, who can walk 4+ miles at a normal walking pace who does not cramp or have pain during or after walking. I eat healthy and do not over eat. I am still over weight.
Philosophy of Miyazaki by sapphiresky1410
I just watched every film a few days ago. This is why I love his films. There is no helpless female bitching and getting into trouble all the time and there is no overly handsome males saving this stupid female from trouble. On another note. The art work is amazing. The plots are great. They are very different from disney movies. I grew up with both and loved his films better. My Neighbor Totoro, and Kiki’s delivery service were my favorite movies when I was kid. I watched Sleeping beauty and other but they never beat watching Totoro, Kiki’s and his other film for a week straight.
This was captioned as “This is an awkward photo.” Why??… Because one of the women is bigger and not thin. She is one of the few women who is heavier who can pull off a two piece. She looks happy. I think she looks very fucking beautiful. America has not only an obesity problem but an ” I wanna be deadly thin ” problem. I am not skinny but can walk faster, longer and further, while most of my skinny “healthy” friends can’t. I eat less and healthier, while some of my friends eat ramen all day. Now there is such thing as too fat and too skinny for me. America has a serious issue with body image. Not obesity. Not “deadly thin”. But fucking body image.
Keep talkin’ dirty… yeah… such a turn on.
While Romney talks I am sticking bobby pins on all my nose rings, lip rings and industrial bar…
