Okay, for the past few months, I noticed an old friend (more like acquaintance) from high school was posting some really emo things on Facebook. Initially, it shocked and disturbed me... but when I looked into them further, they were weird...
She posted how she was dying, and how her family all hated her and was conspiring to kill her. Disturbing right?! There were a bunch of comments asking wtf is going on!?
When asked what was going on, she'd say her parents could read her mind and knew everything she wanted and where she was every day, and was killing her spirit and individuality.
Oh... okay. So you mean, you feel like you're dying because your parents are basically hovering over you, right? Then I guess we're all dying.
Keep in mind, this girl posts updates on Facebook like 50x a day. Ranging from "ohhh no, it's raininggg!! <3 <3", "I'm going to Austin this Thursday! <3 <3", etc. random stuff about her idols, to "I'm dying, and it's because of you guys, just saying because it's true, but I love everyone of you! <3 <3"....
I sincerely think she's mentally ill. Craving attention so badly because no one ever replies to her status updates that she resorts to saying that she's dying to garner pity and attention.
I felt bad at first because I figured... I knew this girl once... she was weird/borderline stalkerish of the people around her and was outcasted in high school because of that... and it's kind of sad. We weren't close, but you know how Facebook is... back when we just started using it in High school when it came out, you just added/accepted invites from all the folks you knew (including those you barely knew). And here we are, 5 years later. With a bunch of people on your newsfeed, some of whom you barely remember posting things you keep yourself updated with. And I saw this girl posting emo things on the daily, as well as bubbly things 24/7.
Anyway, I felt bad at first because I felt like she's sitting there on the other side of the monitor yearning for attention, but getting it from no one. It's so sad. You sort of wonder, is it your responsibility to step in and give her attention?
The reason I didn't though was because I was scared she would latch onto me as her only friend... so I stayed away. Fucked up? I felt like a bystander watching a trainwreck about to ensue, and not pushing the girl off the traintracks.
Good thing I stayed away because the past few months, she continually posts these things, and then all of a sudden she posts about how she's out of town having fun with her friends etc. And then it hit me... why the hell am I feeling bad? She's lying. She's an attention-whore. And others' noticed it too. This girl was finally the girl who stepped out to comment and say what needed to be said. FIND SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE TO DO WITH YOUR TIME! instead of posting these lies up every day.
This is the status that made me delete her. When she resorted saying THIS. Don't tell everyone you're dying and in danger when you're not.
This is the girl who cried wolf.
I hope nothing bad happens to her, and sayonara. UNFRIEND.
There were a couple other guys who performed before him, and even though I never heard of any of them before (including Jon Reep -- and sorry, I completely forgot the other comedians' names besides their first names, Chase and Allan), they were hilarious. It must be hard to be a comedian, since you're competing with so many other funny people... anyway... it made me start thinking about how I'd do if I ever tried stand-up comedy.
Truth be told, I'd probably suck at it.
Well, that's pretty much all I had to say.... here, I'll end it with a picture:
This entire winter break, I've been going to bed at the latest hours of the evening, or the earliest wee hours of the morn. Spring semester starts in about a week and a half for me, so I really need to get back into my regular sleeping schedule. I can't be going to bed at 4-5am anymore ....
Anyway, I started to take up a new hobby... crocheting! This hobby literally just began...maybe 4 days ago.
This is me right now... I'm crocheting my first hat... at 4am... taking a break to blog THIS!
Anyway, I find myself bullshitting a lot around the wee hours of the morn. Besides picking up a new hobby, like crochet, I like to eat. Last week, I ate 11 bagels with cream cheese in 2 days. 6 of which were eaten when I got off from work, at 12:30am, as a midnight snack. mmmmm ! Actually, come to think of it, I eat a lot of junk food around this time rather than healthy food. I know it isn't good for me, but I don't think it has really taken any effect on me (yet) anyway besides making me happy. Now is the prime time to eat whatever I want, whenever I want, right?! I'm still young... I'll deal with the consequences later in life... (hopefully life will continue to be kind to me..)
Besides eating, I find myself taking tons of pictures of myself all over the place. Whether it's with my phone, my webcam, my p&s, or my dslr... I take lots of pictures when I'm bored... a lot of myself, apparently...
Oh, and I watch a lot of TV.
I've been watching The Nanny a lot these past few weeks because they have reruns late at night. And it's an awesome sitcom.
Ok oy, I'm getting tired now, so I'm gonna hop off to bed. Enough with this blabbering nonsense.
Hopefully, I'll finish my hat tomorrow so I can make... another hat ... because that's all I know how to make so far.
The best thing about knowing how to cook is the ability to make whatever it is that you're craving, so that you can have it whenever you want! That is why one of my "new year resolutions" is to finally begin learning to make anything I crave to eat...
