So I’ve always be the type of person who escapes into my own head to deal with ignore my problems. Instead of dealing with the here and now, I tend to be a bit proponent of escaping into a fantasy world where everything happens according to my will versus the real thing.
However, as I continue to transition into my new life in Georgia, I find that I have less to escape. My usual coping techniques aren’t working as well because the stresses of real life have been reduced. I spent most of my time up north mustering up every bit of strength I had to get through the day. So my time at home was spent running away from the very real issues that I was facing there.
Here, my job doesn’t tax nearly as much and I find that I actually don’t mind the people I work with. I don’t feel like the world is going to end every time I wake up. It’s a better feeling, but a new one for sure.
My hope is that I’ll be able to infuse my reality with some of the more exciting elements of my fantasies. Being able to travel and go on vacation without worry. Living my best life and what not!
In other random news, I’ve decided that I’m going to re-watch Flavor of Love, I Love New York, and Rock of Love and share my ten favorite lines from each episode. I have to find right day of the week to post this but hopefully you will love it just as much as I do!
There is real snow outside and I’m over it. No I don’t mean a dusting… I mean inches of snow and apparently we just let it sit on the ground in the south. Can I get a plow? Some salt? I couldn’t move my car if I wanted to… Anyway, I digress. I have nothing poignant or funny to say today. So I leave you with this PSA….
I am LE TIRED of scrolling through my Facebook, twitter, and instagram and seeing people’s BS. Stop hashtagging and talking about ish that no one cares about. If you are grown and still trying to fool people like you’ve arrived …just go on ahead and stop. We know what you’re doing.
HASHTAG WE DON’T GIVE A F*CK. We know those are orange bottom sneakers. We know you are in the local commercial for the Family Dollar Store. Congratulations you are 28 and you work on the weekends but…WE ALL DO HO! Be proud of your achievements but let your actions and recognition speak for itself. If you have to boast about what you’re doing or what you’ve done, we feel like your covering for something. As friends we WANT to celebrate your achievement but when you slam us in the face it only makes us want to slam your face in the concrete and laugh. I’m talking about the people that get up on in the morning already talking about all they’ve accomplished today. “Got up brushed my #teeth. Put on my #Coach watch. #In the #Office. Ready to #WorkHard. Hope y’all getting that #money!” #F*ckOuttaHere Be real about you are and live in your reality. It is just exhausting to sit and scroll knowing that my status at the bank and their status at the bank is the same: nonexistent. Who are you trying to impress? WHO?! Jesus, be a pool of humility that we can dunk your lying self in.
