We all deal with those passive aggressive folks who are a part of our daily life. I think it’s one of the things that makes human beings so strong; I mean dealing with those kinds of idiots all day makes for a thick skin. Being passive aggressive is probably one of the most irritating qualities a person can have. Seriously, if your going to be aggressive just be straight forward so the rest of us don’t have to deal with the underlying bullshit that is an automatic response to passive aggressive remarks.

I would say I’m lucky in a sense because I don’t have to deal with too many passive aggressive people. My dad is definitely like this but since I made the choice not to have him in my life that’s not an issue. On the other hand, my best friend is totally like this. I don’t know what she has to be mad at me about since I’ve never done anything to her but she always manages to throw out snide remarks about my past (family life, past boys, mistakes I’ve made etc.). It’s really fucking annoying because I don’t see why someone who wears the title of Best Friend would do that and it’s clear she doesn’t recognize it because I’ve confronted her about it and she “has no idea what I’m talking about.”

The issue is shedding light on the important issue of friendships and what makes them last. Ours has had a very rocky past but we got through it and are now very close I think, but now that she’s all wrapped up with her boyfriend, I just feel I’m in the need of another friend. One who can actually do things with me that doesn’t constantly need her boyfriend there by her side. Don’t get me wrong, I totally support couples and sticking with your partner, but using them as a crutch is different.

Obsessions

There are some things in life that you start and just can’t stop doing. For some that can be smoking, drinking, working out, dating, having sex, cheating, lying, stealing…for me it’s Tumblr.

I just can’t seem to stop reblogging stuff, it’s the most addicting website I’ve ever been on. I got one years ago, couldn’t really figure it out so I just ignored it, but about 5 months ago my friend reintroduced me and it was a match made in heaven. I have the app, it’s on my favorites bar and I visit the site probably 10-15 times a day. I know that sounds ridiculous but it’s not as bad as it seems.

Tumblr has a lot to offer. It can be there for you when your sad but it can also make you sad at the same time. It can inspire you, give you new and creative ideas and entertain you when your under a boredom spell. Which is needed if your like me and you eat when your bored. Tumblring is much better than eating when your not actually hungry.

I know a lot of people hate on Tumblr, saying it’s just pictures of sex and drugs, which isn’t true. Yes, there are tons of pictures and blogs dedicated to sex and drugs but there is so much more. There’s tons of quotes, people post their thoughts and ideas, there’s protests, creative ideas to decorate rooms or spaces, photo shoot ideas, cute outfit ideas, bikinis, food, recipes and basically anything else you can think of on there. It’s a great place to go to get inspired. I’m a full supporter of all things Tumblr! It’s a place to express yourself freely and without judgement which is something this world needs more of.

The New Side

IMG_6078

 

There comes a day in everyones life when everything changes, for many graduating high school and heading to college is that time. In my case, I opted to jump into college halfway through my junior year.

I’m confident that I can do well in college but it’s a whole new world. A college desk is no different than a high school desk and you still feel like the “new kid” walking around, it’s a strange place to be at 17. Walking around campus yesterday I started to become nostalgic, missing high school, my friends and that feeling of belonging. What’s ironic is that I hated high school and wanted out so badly but suddenly when I got my chance and it all began, I started to wonder if I made the right choice.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so stressed in my life. Trying to crash 3 different English classes and not being able to get into any, struggling to figure out a schedule that will work and having to do all my homework and work on top of that…it’s a lot. I’ve always wanted to be an “adult” and be treated like one…it’s finally starting to happen and it’s not as fun as one would think. I’m trying to take a step back from it all and relax, allow myself to realize it’s all out of my control but it’s so hard to let go of the reigns when it feels like your future is on the line.
