Am I not normal?

I go to school with a lot of girls. Like probably too many, and right now I can’t deal with how many girls I go to school with.

So much “drama” even though, there isn’t anything to be dramatic about.

I’m getting along great with my classmates and I love them, I just can’t wait to not see them for two days. I say that lovingly, but I just need a break from them.

Here’s why:

THEY ARE ALL PLANNING A WEDDING OR PREGNANT! And I am neither of those.

Seriously, there are multiple girls that are planning their wedding. I’m saying “planning their wedding” instead of “engaged” because most of these girls don’t have rings. They have boyfriends they’ve dated for a few months, are 18-22, and planning weddings.

Or they’re pregnant, which to me is less crazy than planning a wedding without being engaged.

Am I crazy though? Am I not normal?

I have to say I want to get married and have babies too, but I thought people got a ring first before planning all this.

Please just let me know if my mentality is off, was I raised wrong?

Please don’t think I am against getting married young either. I am not.

I have no opinion on when is a good age to get married, I really don’t think it’s my place to have an opinion on when someone gets married.

I’m more expressing concern. My friends haven’t even argued with their guys yet, they don’t know what makes them tick. I feel like there is this phase you go through in a relationship and its the “every time we fight I worry we will break up” phase. Eventually that phase either results in you guys getting over that phase or you fight and breakup. They’re still in the cupcake my man is flawless phase.

I’m just scared that these girls are going to get married, argue with their guy one night, and then worry that divorce is the only option. They’re young, and they’re girls, we jump to conclusions when we are scared and upset.

Please just tell me if I’m being out dated, should I start planning a wedding without a ring?

Pinterest is making women crazy, its making them all think that life is a race and whoever does all the “milestones” in life the quickest wins.

I guess I will just take last place voluntarily then.

Even when I was with Calvin —(this is a complicated story right now that I’m not willing to talk about yet, we’ve been talking though, and I know I said things on here, but I did/do miss him I just hate admitting that)— I wasn’t planning a wedding!

If its supposed to last forever, take time, if the person loves you too they’ll wait.

Side note- the guy has changed the wedding date five times, he keeps pushing it back, or coming up with excuses about things, and for a while he didn’t want to tell his parents. we-woo, we-woo, we-woo those are warning signs to me…

Maybe they’re not, maybe I’m the delusional one.

If you know he’s the one, why not wait until you have moved out of your parents house, or have graduated school (its  5-6 months away)

I don’t know, I’m scared for these girls…

I’m also scared that I’m the abnormal one, because I’m the minority at school -no kids, no wedding planning.

But, hey, at least we all still have something in common, none of us have rings! 😉

sorry that was mean

Iove you!

Voting: Warning this is a rant and may upset a few.

I hope you find this post informational, and a touch humorous

                                                                                                     

54% of people from ages 18-31 are registered to vote. FIFTY-FOUR. That makes me so mad. It very well may be even less than that, some websites gave percentages in the 30’s.

I am so sick of people around my age (18-25) saying things like “I hate politics” “I don’t care who runs my country” “Whatever” etc…

I am over my age group being afraid to have an opinion on something, and not standing up for what they believe in.

It just ticks me off.

I am not saying you have to go out and claim to be a republican, liberal, or democrat, but I do think you should be educated on these things.

Having the right to vote is such an honor. Millions of people fought for the right to vote for years. Did 46% of people my age not take 9th grade civics? Do they not know what the 15th, 19th,and 26th amendments are? People fought so hard for this right and now some are too busy playing NBA 2K15, and watching the Kardashians to even care.

I freaking love playing 2k and I love the Kardashians (Ps they come back on tonight at 9!)

But I don’t find either one of these things to be more important than taking the time to educate myself.

It just makes me so sad.

I’m not asking people to believe what I believe, and frankly I am still trying to figure out where I stand on some topics. We could completely disagree on abortion, gay marriage, immigration, planned parenthood, religion, what to do with Russia right now; but for goodness sakes, take a stand for something!

My age group is wasting their human rights in the United States. Do they not realize how awesome it is that we get the right to vote for who we want to run our country? Even if the person we wanted didn’t get elected, we got to put our voices out there and be heard.

So many countries don’t let their people have this privilege.

I really encourage people to watch the debates, they’re on youtube if you missed them. There is also a debate on October 13th.

They don’t even have to do anything! They just have to grab their beer, eat their potato chips, and sit on their ass for a few hours and learn something.

I’m not saying I’ve been all “go voting” since the day I was born, I didn’t really pay attention until I actually was of legal age to vote.

I also know that voting is a “right” and not a “duty” but it’s a right that we shouldn’t take for granted.

PS.

As a Christian, the bible informs me that I am supposed to vote, so that’s why I vote, and thats why I take the time to educate myself.

The first debate I ever watched, I had to google so many things, but thats okay.

I’m kinda sorry if this offended anybody, but at the same time I am not, voting is important, and something I firmly believe we should all be doing.

I love you guys, despite our differences in beliefs,

have a beautiful day.

One more thing: If for some reason you don’t vote this year, don’t you dare complain for the next four.

My Not So Clever Title

It’s just one of those…months I think.

This is not my day, not my week, not my month. I somehow managed to get a first class seat on the struggle bus. Without even trying! Lucky me! 😐

I started my new job! I have two jobs now. I work at a clothing store and a restaurant.

Which means I am tired. And that I miss my bed. Beds are the bomb.

Speaking of bombs… I can’t wait until we bomb the ever-loving shit out of ISIS.

Sorry for the naughty word but its the only good way to express my feelings for that sentence.

Okay. Enough of my random thought train.

Makeup.

Lets talk makeup.

Lets talk about what every one has been talking about lately. The Lime Crime scandal.

Those mischievous little scammers.

So for those of you who don’t know. Lime crime is apparently stealing money from customers and not owning up to it.

That is all the information I really have about this scandal but I would like you all to know that I will not be supporting this company anymore.

I have three of their lipsticks. In all honesty I probably wasn’t going to purchase from them again anyways because I wasn’t impressed. They just didn’t last on my lips.

Seriously though, stealing money from people who were already giving money to you in the first place. What a low blow. It really takes your faith out of humanity.

If you’ve heard anything else about this scandal let me know! I want to know the scoop.

The owner of this company ought to be ashamed of themselves. She takes no responsibility and in fact is actually blaming her customers.

Okay. I am sorry if this post came off as depressing or too complain-y.

Here’s a photo that always makes me smile.

I mean look at it. How can you not smile.

Also because I said that some people make you lose faith in humanity here is a link that’ll help you restore your faith.
