Video games, cosplay, my life, and my annoying laugh.

 

Played 6 times

So today I thought for the first time in a while about what my life was like several years ago when I was in a deep depression and was considering suicide…pretty much depressing stuff. So I popped open my music player and listened to this beautiful piece of work and it brought a smile to my face despite it all. Remember: you can put the past away. 

Phones, Video Games, Videos, and More!

So I know that I have been promising a few people some videos of my beautiful roomate (Curly-Q) playing Zelda: Majora’s Mask. I’m having some trouble uploading it straight from my phone because they are a little dense, so I’ll be editing them a bit to cut out boring scenes. I’ll also be taking out anytime that I say her name because I want to keep her name free from my blog as a courtesy. So if anyone knows her in real life, please don’t comment with her name and keep the same courtesy. Thanks! 

Just A Little Something

So I recently started posting my written works on Wattpad, and I figured that it would be cool to see how many views I could get on my “story” called Compilation. Basically it’s just a compilation of different short stories, all roughly an 8x10 page long. So for anyone who wants to take a look, enjoy, but no pressure. They’re all quick reads that *should* take less than 5 minutes. However I won’t guarantee that because I know “everyone is different”.

Edit: The link is now on the side, along with my Instagram. 

This is my beautiful roommate, Curly-Q, who struggles with her crazy curly hair. Tonight I had her shower and then brush her hair (an unheard of thing because it makes her look like a lion). I used a blowdryer to dry her hair, put in some heat treatment (Diamond Drops by Brilliance New York), and straightened her hair with a straightener from Brilliance New York. There’s the three “before” pictures, the middle picture is me halfway done with her hair, and finally the end result pictures!

How Long?

So it’s been a few years since I last got on tumblr, and I think I could actually give this a realistic shot. To update you more about me,because it has been a while, I am now 20 years old with my first smartphone! I live in the heated Arizona desert, but I plan to be moving soon within the next few years. As always, I like to think about random things and post pictures of things that I find interesting. This is my blog after all. So hello to tumblr people, and I hope you can find at least a marginal amount of entertainment from my grey matter. 😁

Love and Hatred

They say that the people we hate are actually the people that we love. Because we hate them so much, we actually show that we have feelings of some sort for them still. So if I’m feeling a deep disappointment in the person you’ve become, does that mean that I still have feelings for you? 

Show me how to love the unloveable. Tell me how to reach the unreachable. Help me to do the impossible.

College vs. High School

Now I am a freshman college student, and I’ve been going to school since last Thursday. Here are some of the differences I’ve noticed between high school and college.

  1. High school is generically filled with cliques. It’s like a bad high school movie, where everyone is separated into jocks, preps, goths, geeks and so on. Except instead of the one kid from each group banding together to make school uniformity with other members of the other groups, the cliques just all stay separate and that’s how it is for the whole four years. College on the other hand, has little to no cliques. Somewhere along the way, people finally got past the whole “I’m too cool to be seen with the likes of you.” statements. As a result, you all just kind of mesh together in a whole group of failure and insecurity about growing up.
  2. In high school you get to know the members of your graduating class because you all “grow up” together. College isn’t like that. Each year you make new friends and try to hang out with old ones as you slowly drift apart. But this doesn’t bother you because your new friends are much more skilled at whatever class you’re taking currently than your old friends would be. Which means more time for study groups and other such activities.
  3. The kids that drank and did drugs/tobacco in high school may have been considered “cool” to your peers. Well in college no one really gives a crap. It’s more of a, “oh, you do drugs. That’s kind of cool. What did you get on that last math test?” instead of “YOU DO DRUGS OMG THAT’S LIKE, SO F***IN’ COOL!” 
  4. Most kids who come to high school aren’t ready to succeed. Over time they either figure it out, skate through their courses with C’s and D’s, or they drop out. In college, there are the ones that come to school knowing how well they’re going to do, and the ones that come to school knowing how much they want to party. Let’s just say if you heard that your school is the number one party school in the country instead of the fact that it also has one of the most impressive libraries in the state you’re in the latter category. 

Of course there are some similarities too, some of which I may have inadvertently covered in my differences section.

  1. The people who got good grades in high school with little to no prompting are still going to be the ones that get cheated off of in college. Face it guys, it’s just going to happen. Doesn’t mean you allow it, just get used to getting friendzoned if you’re a guy and led on if you’re a girl.
  2. There are still people with sucky personalities that didn’t change in high school. Yes there will be that one boy that cheated on you. Yes there will be that one b*tch that stole your boyfriend. The drama doesn’t end in high school, it just gets toned down.
  3. If you were that girl in high school that was quiet and shy, guess what personality you’ll have in college? Your personality doesn’t change just because you’re in college.
  4. School still sucks. “I’m sick” is still not an excuse for missing homework. “My grandmother died” will get you an, “oh i’m so sorry” speech and the demand for your homework or take home test. Also, it’s still very mandatory to go to. Of course they will tell you it’s all voluntary, but if you just spent hundreds on books and thousands on tuition or worked your tail off to get scholarships then it’s going to feel as if it’s mandatory.

A Rant on Parenting

There are just some things in the world that people should not be allowed to do. First off, when you are a parent and you express constantly this body language and air about yourself that you want NOTHING to do with your children then you are not allowed to randomly start calling shots as a parent.

When you are a parent and you randomly decide that you want to leave and don’t tell anyone, you are being not only an awful parent but also completely selfish towards your children.

When you are a parent and decide that your happiness is more important than your own children’s then I am sorry sweetie but you aren’t really a parent.

Being a parent isn’t about giving birth or “making” the baby. It’s about all the things that come afterward. It’s about going to dance recitals and football games, ballet classes and being there for the first day of school. Parent’s aren’t the ones who buy all the food, they are the ones that sit in the kitchen with their kids making the food TOGETHER. Parent’s are definitely not the people who spend thousands on a babysitter, but actually genuinely enjoy spending time with their children. Whether it’s finding out what fad their teenage daughter is into right now or how their son is doing in school, those are the things that parents just don’t let slip by.

Parent’s are people, mothers and fathers in the world that want to let their children know that no matter what happens to them in their lives, whether they screw up really badly or succeed, they will always be there for them to cheer them on and congratulate them when they do well, or help them back on the right track when they may have diverted.

The hardest thing I think that a parent has to do however, is let their children live their own lives. It’s easy to want the best for your children although here in America some of us would doubt that. It’s easy to send them to a “good school” for a “good education” and be the best mom or dad that you can be. However, it’s when you have to let a child make a mistake that you can foresee and have them learn from it that parenting becomes the hardest. Everything in a real parent’s heart makes them want to keep their children away from that, but they know that if they never experience it then they will never learn.

So while yes, you can give birth to a child (which good for you, you can procreate!) it takes a lot more to be a mom or dad, and even more to be a parent. I won’t judge circumstances, but to all you wonderful young women and ladies out there know that being a mom isn’t always everything. As a wise man once said:
