Ahhhh. I was definitely going to run today – just short, but still – but then I came home and collapsed on my bed for 1 1/2 hours. I am unbelievably EXHAUSTED. Completely tired. Worn out. Dead. Etc… which makes me feel a bit like a lazy bum, but I simply don’t have the energy. I might have to stay home from school tomorrow… miss a bio test, but I’m sure I’d survive…
Lately I’ve been thinking – well, maybe not thinking, but noticing – how people can be so objective in viewing other peoples’ styles. For example, I was shopping with someone the other day and a goth/punk-ish person passed us. Once she was passed, my companion looked at me and made a face (implying: ‘What a freak’ and ‘Did she get dressed in the dark?’) I shrugged and said, “Everyone has their own taste.”
The difference between being poorly dressed and just having a unique style that other people view as weird/colourblind/ugly/etc. is that a poorly dressed person wears clothes that don’t fit or flatter them at all. To be well-dressed, you really need to know what looks good on you, what works. Me, for example: I’d love to be able to wear a mini-tutu (i.e., the white H&M one that everyone has), but I know that my [runner] thighs don’t look good in them. I’m doing the sighted world a favour by not wearing them. And oh, I’m perfectly fine with people wearing leggings as pants (unless they’re, like, transparent – that’s just slutty and bad taste, hands down), but only if you look good in them. I’m sorry, but larger people shouldn’t wear, say, neon leggings and a tight tee. It just doesn’t look good; I feel bad for people who try to wear stuff that they just can’t pull off.
Hmm, I’m coming off as a bit, umm, catty? Bitchy, even? But the truth hoits. If anything, let this inspire you to get into better shape! Run! 🙂
Did any of you see Obama’s speech at the White House Correspondants’ Dinner? He jokes. It’s great.
And a pretty horrendous, umm, grammar mishap on FabSugar UK: “…but it has set a whole new president…” FAIL! I actually groaned out loud when I read this. It should, of course, be precedent.
That’s pretty bad.
