Instagram’s Immaturity

So, it’s summer, everyone is out with their “bae” going to the beach, and showing off how good of a relationship they’re in. Others are at home, taking selfies while they watch Netflix and eat food. Others are “turning up” and getting drunk at the club. Whichever. And you know, we all want that. However, as I was scrolling through my Instagram, I just have a few comments regarding the things I see people posting about their relationships. It is to me adorable that you can be open with your relationship status and show the world who owns your heart. However, Instagram doesn’t need to know everything. People are feeding their followers way too much information. And that is find, but then complain when these followers form a judgement on their lives, and share their opinions in the comments. Also, it’s these same people that are posting themselves as ignorant, thinking they are building themselves a great image.

Tonight I saw this girl posting a picture of a text saying “I would kill every girl that messes with my boyfriend”
And you know, it’s alright to feel this way. But its also very ignorant.
May I remind you that we are in 2014, and unless you’re doing a three way relationship, or are similar to “Sister Wives” you’re not in a relationship with your boyfriend plus the girl that “messes ” with him, it is not her responsibility to keep your relationship in check.
Do not get me wrong I am not making excuses for people who come in between relationships, I’m just opening your eyes on who’s to blame, the girl is NEVER the one you should fight with or blame unless the case is really extreme, you know, like if shes a psychopath or something. YOUR BOYFRIEND has control over the situation. He can make the choice to cheat or not to cheat, the girl is just a consequence of that choice. It’s all about wether he will let her in or not.
It is only after HIS choice that the girl comes in.
That being said, if you’re out here screwing somebody that is not yours, you should stop, because you’re a hoe.

Feminism or Ignorance?

Woman ACTUALLY oppressed

“Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.”

Now, reading this and having seen the post, some of you might have the following reaction, which is the one my best friend had :

“- I hate when people say these types of shits! Its like saying “You cant be happy because some people are sad” like forreal, I just really hate when ppl do these types of comments, but I think this one is so sad thats its coherent-”

Now personally this is my opinion. I support feminism. Only, I will support it for pressing reasons, I will support when we are put down. If not, if its just women putting THEMSELVES down and misinterpreting facts.

But dont start with sexuality, nevayse in 2014 that is the least of these women’s problem. Because they are being mistreated FORREAL in other countried
Girls are over here trying to find an excuse to be a whore
Saying things like :
“How come a girl that sleeps with many guys is a whore but a guy that sleep with many girls is cool”
Because women know better thats why.
Because there is no reason you should be out there sleeping with everything that breathes. Instead of asking women to be seen like guys
We should ask guys to be seen like women. Please start calling them “hoes” too.
Don’t you dare wanna have a whore pass as cool because thats stupid.
Instead of having woman lose their decency, LETS GET MEN TO HAVE SOME.
An individual who sleeps with numerous men or women, (please note numerous is not 2, thank you very much) is a HOE, or a thot, call it what you may.
People are out here being killed because they are women and you use feminism as an excuse to be a hoe?
Let me remind you that screwing around, being the easiest person around is degrading no matter what they might say!
Bye.

Losing Weight

So I have been changing my ways to lose weight, I try to exercise everyday, I eat less, and I did lose weight. But do I feel better about myself like every trainer promises? At times. But I swear it is not as good as trainers claim it is. I mean working out is effective and you do lose weight specially if you follow the right diet (I’m writing this right now and currently am SO hungry).

I’m just saying that, if working out, you better have your self confidence in check BEFORE you start your journey. As opposed to what they tell you, even after a workout, your self confidence can go from the regular 5 to -5. Eating the wrong things feels like a sin, and you are so worried about your calories, you check the scale every two hours, you’re paranoid, and you’re always 2 seconds from snapping, quitting and getting yourself a greasy ass burger. 

If you can, it’s better to just be comfortable with your own body. If not, then start working out, and endure the pain of doing something because you’re insecure and obviously, you think you’re going to get out of it. But know this, society is not always satisfied and you might  not be pleased with the result, if other people aren’t.

Flaws and all

I have been thinking on posting this somewhere even before I started this blog. I thought it’d be interesting to post my thoughts on society’s perception of people and things.

This is indeed a pretty corny subject. I feel like nowadays, everyone is talking about society and the injustice that reigns among it. It didn’t sound like that when the idea hit me and I grabbed my laptop. This post is not going anywhere, just a quick warning before you get into this reading. 

I have been catching up to a lot of shows and I am currently with the TV. You should know one of my favorite shows is The Originals, and my favorite character of all time Klaus Mikealson. Before I get deep into his personality, I’d like to point out show producers, writers and whoever creates the things we crave on TV. I think Filmography is in “un fase de cambio”.

When I was younger, perfection was closer to God’s example. In movies, shows and cartoons “the enemy” was the one with the crmiminal record, the one that killed. The writers always made sure that flaws were always packed into one person and perfection into another. The two fought throughout the whole thing and everything always ended with the good one winning. 

Nowadays there’s a message trying to be passed on. Embrace flaws, imperfection. In 2014, perfection is only well seen and interpreted physically. The “Virgin Mary” act or the “pure soul” really doesn’t do it for anyone anymore. Psychology has done its course and we are now brought to understand the bad guys. To run deep and discover and the pure reasons to dark actions. 

In a book we were reading last year with my class, Boule de Suif, : a group of people in the midst of which a prostitute, run away from their city for war purposes. As they get to their refuge, they are held hostages by a soldier of the opposite camp. He demands to sleep with the prostitute in exchange for the group’s freedom. The prostitute is overwhelmed by this wave of nationalism and refuses to sleep with the soldier. The others start speaking all sorts of sweet words and lies, to convince her. She realizes their faith is in her hands, more precisely in  her….you know? So she does the deed. When she comes out and packs her things to leave with what she thought were now her friends, the only thing she gets from them are shaming glances. They were shaming her for sleeping with the foreign soldier. 

This makes you sit down, have a drink, sleep, then think again. Who is the bad person here? The prostitute? because she is who she is? 

This is a book from the 1850. We’ve changed and we know better, producers and writers sure do. 

today, understanding someone’s darkness is much more important, 

Back to Klaus Mikealson, the gold medalist for serial killing. In his troubled world, no one understands his darkness, he has been sheding blood for over a thousand years now, and he is so physically strong, and selfish, (and so they think). But I believe people aren’t born killers. There is a reason people grow up to become who they die being. In order for society to take a step further, people should try and understand these things before judgement (legal judgement), jail and or punishment. 

That being said, its hard to put someone’s feelings before ours, depending on how thick the tensions can be and the impulsions their provocations can lead us to. But I strongly believe in that theory that there is good in everyone, despite all the evil out there.

Back to what I was actually talking about. So, like this all explains, flaws, (not physical ones, we haven’t grown that wise and understanding yet, but that’s for another post) have grown to be beautiful and embraced, it is even attractive. Perfect is so…boring.

Picking a side

Personal issue :
Someone once said that” the person that stays neutral to a situation, is in the bad side, the enemy’s side. ” As if, if you choose to be neutral and not acknowledge a criminal, poisonous individual, or and an injustice, then you are as bad and as cruel.
Now, I’ve always said it’s impossible to stay neutral, it is always a matter of being afraid of being honest, because of what it might cost you.
Now, if you’re in a situation where two people you love are in a feud, is being neutral the right thing to do? Clearly one of them is wrong, and I know that. I just can’t seem to decide, who exactly to side on. You can’t comfort one without excluding the other, you HAVE to pick a side and that’s just too hard.
Maybe there is no solution.
