So wise….HA HA!!!

I’m not writing this post for selfish reasons. I’m creating this to show how doing a lot of reading really helps. My friends all come to me for advice much like any panic-stricken friend of yours has done with you. When I give them my advice, they call me wise, brilliant, whatever. I end up laughing at them, not necessarily with them. I’m not wise but I am smart. I’m what most people call a bookworm. I’ve even been in several book clubs, including one at school. The books I’ve read aren’t ever about “various ways to work out a friend’s problems.” Actually, the only informative books I read are auto-and biographies, National Geographic, stuff like that. The point is, I get all my advice from every day objects that I read which are, believe it or not, mostly under the fantasy genre. In all genre of books, there is a theme or moral. Using the characters’ dilemmas, I work out what I would tell them to do and later compare it to what their fellow companions suggested. By doing that, I build up my “advice-giving” skill. Some books also have real-life situations. Just read books and think outside of the box. Think of all the lessons you could learn if you just paid attention to the bound pages in your hands.

Got me to thinkin’

That hilarious song “I Pray for You” that I posted earlier got me to thinking about other songs I’ve listened to that are similar. Well, I sent that song to a good number of people (27 so far) and I’ve gotten quite a lot of negative feedback from them so far because the song is “country.” So freak out people. Honestly. People hate each other for the dumbest reasons and that eventually gets under everyone’s skin. The entire time, I’m forcefully thinking, “I’m not going to kill them and I’m going to have a good attitude about this.” It usually works but listening to certain songs, it definitely works. It doesn’t matter what musicians, artists, or genre of music ya’ll listen to. It’s the message each song puts across and it doesn’t matter if I like country music and you loathe it. It doesn’t judge everything and you can still be my friend. All of you listen to what you tell others and tally how often it’s negative or nice. When you add up the scores, most of the time, negativity scores the highest. Go out there and change that. Start with your family.

I Pray for You by Jaron Lowenstein, a must read!!!

Jaron and The Long Road to Love Pray For You 

Written by: Jaron Lowenstein 

  

Haven’t been in church since, I don’t remember when 

Things were going great, til they fell apart again 

So I listened to the preacher, as he told me what to do 

Said you can’t go hating others, who dont wrong to you 

Sometimes we get angry, but we must not condemn 

Let the good Lord do his job, and you just pray for them 

I pray your brakes go out, running down a hill 

I pray a flower pot falls, from a window sill 

And knocks you in the head like I’d like to 

I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls 

I pray your flying high when your engine stalls 

I pray all your dreams never come true 

Just know where you are 

Honey, I pray for you 

Really glad I found my way to church 

Cause I’m already feelign better and I thank God for the words 

Yeah I’m gonna take the high road 

And do what the preacher told me to do 

You keep messing up, and I’ll keep praying for you 

I pray your tire blows out at 110 

I pray you pass out drunk with your best friend 

And wake up with his and her tattoos 

I pray your brakes go out, running down a hill 

I pray and flower pot falls, from a window sill 

And knocks you in thehead like I’d like to 

I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls 

I pray your flying high when your engine stalls 

I pray all your dreams never come true 

Just know wherever you are, near of far, in your house or in your car 

Wherever you are honey, I pray for you 

I pray for you. 

Ugh…

So, I don’t have many friends because I choose them carefully. Yes, my Facebook page says 280 something friends but I don’t really stay in touch with many of them unless they have my phone number and take some time in their day to actually send me a message themselves. I don’t have time to sit there and text ‘hi, how are you’ to ten different people. As much as I’d like to be able to do that, I can’t with school work and homework. I usually get a million texts around 5pm when everyone’s getting on the bus and I can’t text or talk then because I’m either cooking dinner or I’m driving. Big jump there, eh? Anyway, the point of this blog was to discuss my anger at my soon-to-be ex-friend. You see, lately, everyone’s been getting boyfriends or girlfriends so they’ve been preoccupied with them and don’t have time to answer my texts or messages. Then, if something bad happens in the relationship, they come to me for advice, so I tell them…then they get offended, won’t listen to me, and whatever else. Afterwards, they slink back and say, ‘I’m sorry, you were right.’ Glad you’re all admitting that. However, there’s this one friend that will take as much advice as they can get but it goes in one ear and out the other, passing through the empty space between their ears. Lately, I’ve put up with too much of their crap and I’ve had enough when they didn’t wish me a happy birthday, won’t reply to my messages on Facebook, e-mail, msn messenger, or anything at all. I’m not going to bother going to their house and stalk them down. They’re not worth it if they’re going to pull that crap. So, I can’t help stupid, and I’m not going to be friends with stupid because it’s too much effort. I may seem like a bad person but isn’t only “God” supposed to judge me?

Blog Deleted :(

 I previously had written a quite comical blog but it was sadly deleted and once something is accidentally deleted, I don’t bother to rewrite it. Don’t ask me why, I’ve just always done that. The praying mantises are doing well and are eating a lot while having extreme anger issues. They now grab and kill the crickets before throwing them to the bottom of the container…occasionally they’ll eat it later (they don’t really have a choice, lol!). It is hilarious to watch them do it though. They were also upgraded into slightly larger containers and when they molt for the second time, they will be put into 4 in by 12 in containers. This coming Monday is my belated b-day party because that’s when spring break starts for my two friends that are coming over. It will be a lot of fun! That’s about all I’ve got for today. :p

Crickets, crickets, crickets galore…

Those pesky little vermin called praying mantises that I’m raising have some serious anger management issues! I put two crickets in each of their containers (which equals 10 crickets total) and whenever the crickets get too close to the praying mantis, they’ll lash out, kill it, then throw it back down…. That’s a waste of money! Sky and Roc began the whole process but now all of them are doing it…so…raising them is a really fun experience. The praying mantises are considerably bigger now (a little over an inch) and are a really pretty light green. 😀 Yesterday, we also upgraded them to larger containers. 😀 When they molt one more time, they’ll be moved into the small “lizard-sized” cages you can buy at Petsmart or anywhere else in general. That’s all the updates on them so far!

Once Upon a Time…

Once upon a time, there lived a princess. This princess had everything she wanted. A prince to marry, a kingdom, all the dresses she wanted, blah blah blah. Ok. Hate to break it to you, but everybody knows “happily ever after” doesn’t exist without a lot of hard effort! Prince Charming isn’t going to search for you because he doesn’t know you exist, kingdoms don’t exist any more, and the average person does not have enough money for a dress with diamonds and lace on it. However, there is still hope! 😉 There are all of these dating sites to help you signal Prince Charming that you are ready (lol!), rather than kingdoms, there are “sophisticated” countries, and if you get a high paying job, you can always get an expensive dress (just not with diamonds sewn on it). Why am I writing this post? Maybe because I’m bored, people think I’m crazy any way, and nobody reads these so those are the perfect excuses! This is under the Crazy category for a reason. Just wanted to point out that fairy tales don’t just happen. They have to be earned and only you can set your goals and win….or end up disappointing yourself….which is never fun(obviously).
