Day 22 - How have you changed in the past 2 years?
Let’s see two years ago I was 24 years old (almost a year since graduating), just finished working in Princeton and had no idea what I was going to do in life. Since then Ive gained a lot of clarity, grown up a BUNCH, and learned a whole lot about life, relationships and communication. I think I’m a better person but still the same old me.
I actually had a short conversation with my sister about this very topic a couple of days ago and I came to this conclusion. As I am a reality show junkie I’d have to say my favorite show is Big Brother on CBS. It airs every summer from July through the middle of September and it’s LIVE. I cant tell you how into this show I get, it’s not even funny. I used to be the only person I knew who watched it but I’ve managed to get my entire family and my ex to be just as into it (if not more in the case of my mom). It’s really a guilty pleasure of mine and I love it!.
If we are talking about my favorite scripted show then I would say it is probably Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. I am the type of person who can’t really watch reruns unless it’s been many months or years since I last saw it, but with SVU I can watch it just about anytime.
Oh snap…MTV (illuminati’s favorite network) back on the attack…why can’t y’all just chill out? Salacious banality @ the speed of light? I think I’ve been very good natured with you. I personally know several employees of your company. You guys know me as well. I’m confused. Where is the true…
Facebook Will Finally Stop Flashing Photos Of Your Ex On Your Facebook Page
THANK GOD! lol
“Facebook has heard your sad, lonely-hearted cries, and will from now on stop rubbing pictures of your ex in your face. In case you have been blessedly spared this phenomenon, some Facebook pages sport a “Photo Memories” box that shows you old photos from your friends - and which, until now, had such an uncanny knack for showing pictures of ex-lovers that users formed groups to protest it.
Facebook must have noticed the discontent. In a comment on the blog post in the first link below, Facebook Photos Project Manager Sam Odio said, “I’d like to let you know that we’re listening to your feedback. The photo memories product no longer shows tagged photos of your friends if you were previously in a relationship with them.” - Great. Now if we can only get a pets and babies filter…
VERY. I’m kind of a nerd at heart so I actually enjoy learning, reading etc. but it’s also important because it can get you ahead in life. It’s no guarantee obviously, but it never hurts. This goes for both school/book education and common sense education. You need both.
Even if you think the kids who were bullied were “cowards” or you think Tumblr is biased towards the gay community for changing it to purple, stop acting like someone stabbed you w. the rusty sword of injustice.
I’m sure you’ve thought to tell those kids to “man up” and “quit being bitches”, so why don’t you take your own advice and do the same.
Im going to talk about 2 of my favorite groups of people because I cant narrow it down to just two.
First, my brother and sister. Just like my parent, as we’ve gotten older we have grown a lot closer. Most of the time I’d rather hang out with them than some of my friends. THey’re good, solid people and make me laugh. Glad I have them in my life.
Second are my friends Cammie, Tish. and Adrian Tish I’ve known since 4th grade and even though we don’t see each other as often as we used to when we were younger whenever we get together it’s like no time has gone by. Same with Adrian, who Ive known since 8th grade. She’s a mom and married now so we dont get to spend a lot of time together but she’s one of the funniest people I know. Cammie I met in my Junior year of college at UT. I saw her w/ a Yankees cap on and knew we’d be instant friends. She lives in Upstate New York now and I miss her to death. I need to go see her asap!
I’m pretty terrible at keeping in touch with people but these I will know forever.
I have had a super tough year, which I wasn’t expecting AT ALL. The highs and lows I’d rather not go into specifically, but I lost a close family member in death, and a lost a best friend in life. I guess a high would be that I’m alive and the year is almost over.
Oh and I finally got Lady Gaga tickets that I’ve been trying to get for close to a year. (That’s my highlight of 2010, what a fabulous life lol)
I used to be a music elitist and say things like “How could you like that stuff”. Then I realized that it’s just music and it doesn’t have to be so serious all of the time. Just about everything has it’s place in music imo and if someone likes it, who am I to judge. I mean, I love Lady Gaga, who gets more mainstream than that right now lol.
My parents and Hoda Kotb. She’s an anchor on the Today show and has inspired me in recent months to kind of take a step forward and do all of the things I want to do in life. You only get one after all :).
I’m going to read her book as soon as I finish the one I’m currently reading.
As for my parents our relationship has grown so much since vie become an adult. I love it. I find it a lot easier to open up to them, especially recently. Hopefully i can model my life after them and their relationship. I love them. Don’t know what I’d do w/o them.
Geez I have no idea. I have the memory of when I was 8 years old and my mom came into our room to tell us she was going to have my little sister. I remember it because she was so calm but I expected from television that she’d be screaming “My water broke!” or something. Right now that’s the earliest I remember but I’m sure I’ll recall something from an earlier time.
Since I was little I always wanted to live in New York City. My dad is from there and so I always had this fantastical idea of what it would be like to be a “New Yawkah”. Having visited several times that ideal has faded a little BUT it is still a place I’s love to try out, at least for a little while. Right now I’m in the process of saving up all the money I make to give it a try out there in 2011. As they say if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.
As for a place I’d like to visit Amsterdam, Italy, England and Puerto Rico are al on my list. Id also like to take a cruise but I’m afraid of motion sickness lol.
First kiss was probably in a closet somewhere lol I don’t quite remember.
My first love was the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced. It was overwhelming, hard and hurtful at times but I appreciate every minute of it. It taught me a lot about life, expectations and compassion. I also learned a lot about myself and the type pf partner I want to be and the type I want to be with. I’ll gladly apply it to my future relationships and in fact I am pretty excited to try :). I have a prospect in the wings (8o) so I hope I get to experience a love like that again someday soon.
Day 7 - Your zodiac sign and if you think it fits your personality.
I’m skipping day 6 for now because it’s kind of long…
I have one of those birthdays that could go either way since I’m right on the cusp. I identify more with Leo than Cancer imo though so that’s what I consider myself to be. I dont pay much attention to signs however.
I think a lot of the Leo describes me but some of it doesn’t. For example I’m not a huge extrovert when I first meet people but after I get to know them I can be. I am loyal and generally confident.
Also I don’t get jealous often at all and I don’t need to be the center of attention at all times. Other than that I am a bit bossy, strong willed, stubborn and opinionated and generally always right :p.
As with most of these things, some stuff fits, some doesn’t.
I don’t know if you like the show Huge on ABC Family or not or maybe you’ve never heard of it, but its a teen show about a bunch of over weight people going to a fat camp to lose weight. This show has now been canceled and the petition is to put it back on the air….
I don’t watch, but my sister does, so Im reblogging so she sees this.
Day 5 - A time you thought about ending your own life.
I’ve never “REALLY” considered ending my own life but I have been in a place where I could understand why someone would feel that way. Once in 2007 and again quite recently. This year hasn’t exactly been the best for me (Mostly the second half of it so far) and some news I just got has basically solidified that for me. I wont go into detail about exactly what happened but it involved a break-up, a death and health related news. I think doctors should come up with a way for people to be put into comas until the pain/problem is gone lol. That’s my solution. The phrase “I laugh to keep from crying.” had to be created for me, sheesh!
