Boys Boys Boys

So I know I’ve covered this topic once or twice, but people really aren’t taking my advice seriously! BOYS! MEN! Whoever you are!! THIS IS FOR YOU!!

You’re the man of the house and you want to be treated like one, right? Well then act like one! Women are tired of seeing men who take longer than them to get dressed to go out. We’re tired of the guy who doesn’t step up and take responsibility for their actions. And we are sure as hell tired of the guy who doesn’t stand up for his woman. Look guys, women aren’t that complicated, seriously. We like compliments, we like chocolate, we want to know that you love us too, we want to know that you appreciate us getting dressed up  for you and we want to know that everything will be all right.

When we come to you for help with even the smallest things, we want you to know that we appreciate your opinion, even if we know the answers ourselves. Most of the time, if we don’t agree with what you said we’ll do it anyways. Women do that because we like our men to feel like men. Now, if you don’t stand up and act like a man, you make our jobs a lot harder. Come on, we make it SO easy for y’all! Don’t sit there and make that face you just made.

When you walk into a room, have your head up and demand the attention that you deserve. YOU are the man and you’ve got a beautiful woman by your side. SHOW HER OFF! She’ll absolutely love that.  We like attention too! In all seriousness though, if she took time out of her life to get cute for you, the least you could do is treat her like the princess she is. All girls are princesses and we fight for our throne, FYI.

Every girl LOVES surprises. It doesn’t matter if she’s told you that she doesn’t, because in reality she really does. Surprises mean: bringing her flowers to her dance performance, giving her favorite chocolate to her when she least expects it or maybe even coming to see her when she’s having a bad day. Little things like that will make her love you even more.  Another thing every man should know is that she really does love you more than you love her. Unless it’s not working out, well then that’s just y’alls problem!

This may be the most important thing I can ever say to a guy. DO NOT LIE TO US!! We know when you do it, you suck at doing it, you’ll make everyone’s lives hell, so just DON’T DO IT. You guys ask why women get so paranoid and insecure. It’s because you lie to us. You make us go all crazy figuring out why you lied to us, if we did something wrong, if you’re not happy, why we’re not happy, etc etc. Honestly, it’s just not worth the hassle. Oh did I mention we know when you do it; because we do. A woman’s instinct is usually never wrong and you’ll just get yourself in trouble. DON’T DO IT!!

Guys, seriously… Stop being so lame

Current Status

So I wake up in the morning, do my business, go to the kitchen, open up the fridge and see this huge bottle of Simply Orange High Pulp Orange Juice sitting in the fridge. I smiled and knew that I was at home. Of course I’m at home; but seeing that bottle of OJ confirmed it. The best part was that I knew my mother got it for me. Internally, I laughed saying “YES! She gets me!” Yeah, we fight. A LOT. But doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what her daughter likes, and it sure doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate her. I’ve had some bright moments with my mother... But I still believe her to be the best woman ever. She’s my strength and courage and reason why I get out of bed in the mornings. Without her I don’t know what would happen to me. She’s helped me smile when I lost all hope in the world, and made me understand why things happen (for better or for worse). If you don’t know my mother, you need to meet her. If you do know my mother, you know how much I take after her. My mother. She’s made me the woman I am: fearless, stubborn, happy and most importantly forgiving.

Current status: Sippin/eating some good ol’ high pulp orange juice. =)

Carpe Diem

Hello world! How has everyone been since my last post? Great? Shove it in why don’t ya? No no, go ahead. We all know how great you’ve been doing. Going swimming, going partying and hanging out with the ‘peeps’ that you choose to acknowledge yourself with. JUSSSSTTTT GREAATTT!
I’m sure while you’re hanging out with your friends you’re taking pictures too, right? Pictures that eventually find themselves to Facebook to show the rest of the world how great you’ve been huh? Well that’s nice. Shove it in some more. Go ahead. I’m not here to judge!
How have I been? Well thanks for asking! I’ve been pretty good myself. Still in search of a job that pays well so I can pay bills in the future. Of course to get a well-paid job I need an education which is what I’m currently working on. Other than that, life has been life. Isn’t that such a bland statement? Just like someone saying “it is what it is.” I don’t agree with that.
It is what you make it to be.
I recently realized that. Very recently
Reality check!
We are able to take any situation and make it out to be whatever we want it to be. Whether it has to do with wanting to continue on getting a higher education, helping your parents with business or simply breaking up with a girlfriend/boyfriend. It’s easy. You do it and you do the best you can at it. You try to make good grades, you help the parents that support you or you try not to break a heart (even if it’s in the best interest for both parties).
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this in previous posts, but, life is just too short to dwell. If we fail to appreciate the people in our lives and the moments given to us, we aren’t really able to appreciate the bigger picture of life.
A friend of mine sent me a quote from the Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity. The Dalai Lama answered, “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” MIND BLOWING!
Intriguing, isn’t it? The answer that he chose to give was about man and the way man lives his life. Unfortunately, it’s so true. Even I get caught in thinking about the future too much and neglecting what I have right in front of me.
Luckily, it’s not too late to change these habits!
CARPE DIEM my friends!

This glass of extra-pulp OJ is half full, remember? How full is your glass?
