a toys r' us kid

You know some people think that i don't act my age, in that i'm immature to some degree. I beg to differ. Who says just because you're in you early to mid twenties that you have to act like a thirty years old. There is nothing wrong with having fun; and let me tell you i can have fun with the best of them! What's up with all these things that you have to have if you are all of the sudden graduated from college, single, and recently just past the age to be on your parents insurance. I mean who the heck wants to grow up anyways? I mean come on there will always be that part of everyone that wants to have what they had when they were younger! Exactly!!! That's why i am living it up while i can, because no one wants to grow up too fast! I want to be able to say that i had a good time when i was younger, because when i get older i'll probably actually care about what people think i'm supposed to act like! Live it up now!!

Elderly ADD

Why is it once a person gets past a certain age, they automatically get elderly ADD?
Have you ever noticed when your riding in a car with someone over the age of fifty, more often than not they get really distracted by what's on the side of the road? It's not even done consciously. It sucks though, especially if you are the passenger! All of a sudden you notice that the car you are riding in is slowly veering into the wrong lane, you look at the driver and notice, they aren't even watching the road, completely oblivious to such veerage! You brace yourself on the dashboard with one arm, because that will protect you if you happen to wreck, while similtaneously screeching the driver's name, at a decibel that is definitely not intelligible to the human ear. They quickly look up and jerk the car back in the appropriate lane. Your head, however, has now smacked into the passenger window and richoted back, resulting in horizontal whiplash, leaving you wondering if the mild concussion you just sustained will give you an excuse to lay out of work for the day! Dream on! The driver is yelling at you to quit criticizing his driving, I mean what were you thinking, how dare you save both of your lives!!! Ever happen to you? Happens to me almost every day!!! Tada!

who knew....perceptions

Who knew that I would ever have a blog....right!!!! Crazy! Anyways, so I figured this would be a good place to vent out my frustration but then I realized that people could actually read this and I probably wouldn't want them to read my frustrations and then think I was some sort of psycho, but you know....that might happen anyways!!!!

I've realized that people are rarely who they want to be...for instance, i would love not to be a psycho and probably would never see myself as such, but you know how other people can be, always perceiving what they want someone to be by outside appearances. For instance, i was talking to one of my friends Eva today and we were talking about my cousin who happened to go to the same mission as her and we were talking about how she last perceived me. You know a 14 yr old popular wannabe who was wearing shorter shorts than she should have been. Anyways, the point is people's perceptions of us are rarely accurate. If we want to be perceived a certain way, dress the way that would best convey that. ( yeah i know who uses the word convey anymore!) Just be who you want to be!! It doesn't matter what other people think of you! Especially if the last time they saw you was when you were a misguided 14 year old...hardly the accurate portrayal of what I'd be the rest of my life....but thus is life!!!
