Why I want to live in Neverland..

Hi everyone! First off, happy new year :) I’ve just composed a super long, serious rant, but I thought I’d just start off the new year with a still long, but not as serious lecture. (sigh…) Anyways, the title of this post is “Why I want to live in Neverland” and this is just the beginning of me complaining about how ridiculous people are these days.  Hope you’re in the mood.

 

I think our perception of happiness in this world is twisted. Really. Read these situations, and if you’re not nodding your head in agreement about how   wrong these things are, then I don’t know what will..

I read this ridiculous article about a women giving her little 7 year old daughter a certificate she can use when she’s 16 – one that entitles her to  -ahem – enhancement of certain body parts.. and liposuction. (well, this is awkward.) The girl says, “I can’t wait to look pretty like mommy!” You should really read this article. The mom also teaches that little girl how to .. let’s just say exotic dance. Just type in “Human Barbie” in a search bar, and that’s the 1st thing that pops up. 

I also hate how girls my age are piling on makeup, just caking it on their face until they look like a witch. I understand a bit of makeup (though I don’t wear it) but covering up every single imperfection is a bit much. And if those girls are just worried about what other people will think of them, then there’s really something wrong with the world.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m not a hater. I’ve felt the same way many times in my life, and stolen things from my mom and older sister because – yes, I thought beauty in a bottle would actually make me look better. Um, heck no. I then realized we can’t look perfect all the time, and to just get over it. 

I think that sometimes people are really afraid to just be themselves. They’d be scrutinized. I went to the mall the other day, and practically every teenage girl looked the same. Long silky straightened hair. A sweatshirt from whatever sport they like, or team they like, those stupid Nike shorts with built in underwear, and UGG boots. (Boots and shorts doesn’t even make sense. It’s either one or the other. It’s winter, not summer.) If someone was the first person to wear stuff like that, then kudos to them. But if they’re just doing it because everyone else is, then that girl is crazy in the head. Girls today look like clones. I thought I kept seeing the same girls over and over again, but it they all just looked alike. It’s scary. I rarely see people now that act the way they want to, even with my classmates. I’ve known some of mine for 10 years now, and they all used to be their own person. Now it’s all about hair flipping, being sarcastic to impress everyone, and talking behind people’s backs. That stuff is not cool at all. That’s why when I see someone that’s their own person, I befriend them.

So some advice – don’t be sucked into reality. Create your own reality and live it like there’s no tomorrow. You are who you meet, and I honestly don’t want to be sucked into a mass of barbie dolls.

Now I’m really getting to the point of this whole article – (sorry!) don’t try to grow up too fast. That’s my goal in life, to cherish everything, to enjoy being a kid. Because I already know it’s going to get much harder later, and who wants to add extra drama to their life and speed up the inevitable? 

I have my whole life ahead of me – plenty of time to settle down, and wear expensive clothes, and walk in four inch long heels – but for right now, I just want to be a kid. One who’s aware that ignorance is bliss, one who isn’t embarrassed  by watching movies suited to younger kids, and one who isn’t afraid to run through the mall, arm in arm with their best friend, singing songs from the Wizard of Oz. One who wants their mind to stay in a place like Neverland for as long as possible.

Dreams & To Do List

HEY EVERYONE ♥

Phew! I hope the weather’s cool where ever you are! Where I live it’s so hot, like 104 degrees everyday :( I love summer but I can’t go outside or anything or else I’d be scorched :( People aren’t even going to the pool anymore!! >_< It was so funny yesterday because my dad & I were on our way to a baseball game (for my mom’s b-day, it was in a suite) & I had.. rollers.. in my hair (because I don’t want to use a straightening/curling iron everyday, it would damage my hair) & when I took them off, my dad said:

“You look like a-” 

“Like a movie star?”

“No. Like a grandma.”

:p Pfftt. Well. It was funny :)

Anyways.. I’d better get the show started. I’m going to make a list of things I want to do before I die (if I post them on here, I’ll never forget ^_^ ) & future careers :p Let’s see..

Dream ♥ Careers:

  • I really want to become a published author :) I know it’s absolutely hard work, but I love being able to control where the story goes & if I get published, that would be so rewarding. Just to think that it’s my book (my book!) would be like a dream to me. I want to be able to influence & inspire people with my writing. 
  • If the whole author thing doesn’t work out, I’d definitely settle for being a journalist. Especially a journalist that travels to different countries, or observes animals. Sometimes I feel maybe being an author isn’t really for me, because when I try to write chapter books, I always stray from it, even if I’m passionate about the topic. But the thing is, I like writing short stories, essays & articles.. basically nothing that’s too permanent or too long. It would be fun to deliver news to people. If I were a journalist I’d like to review fun things, like out of the country trips or shops/restaurants. I think that would be very fun. 
  • Interior designer. I love designing things-websites (you can tell), cards, book covers, & creating layouts. I would seriously settle for interior design. I would love to coordinate the wall colors with the furniture, arrange the layout of the furniture (not to mention pick it!) & make the house I’m designing unique. If I were to do that, I’d have a program that designs/decorates homes for people who need help financially or are going through difficult times (like Extreme Makeover:Home Edition) so I can make a big impact on their lives & have while doing it! :)
  • Wedding Coordinator. Gosh. I love weddings. It would be awesome to coordinate/design(as you know, I like designing things) things for the bride & groom to make their day special. It would be fun to arrange the flowers, decorate where the reception is going to be held, etc. 
  • Calligrapher. I think calligraphy is beautiful. Even though right now my handwriting looks nothing like calligraphy, I would love for it to look like a calligrapher’s :p  I think it’s a tough job but maybe I could do it :) I would have fun addressing things for people. 
  • Web Designer. Again, something that has to do with design. I really enjoy designing websites. If I were to become a web designer I would have to learn a bunch of coding though :p I’m not sure if I’m up to that. I only know the basic fundamentals of HTML & that’s about it, but I’m sure I can grow on it if I really wanted to.
  • Teacher. Not the college professor type. I definitely don’t have the brains for that. More like a kindergarden teacher :)  I love working with little kids, no matter how sick they always make me. I like them because most of them aren’t complicated-it’s all simple “play with toys” or “play outside” kinda stuff that I like, none of that real “drama” that comes with the package of junior high & high school. I work well with kids- although I don’t have any younger siblings, I have enough patience for them, & I don’t mind playing with toys again ;)
Here’s part 2 of this ridiculously long blog :)
Thing to do before I die:
  • Publish a book
  • Save at least one person’s life, it doesn’t matter how
  • Make someone’s life a lot happier 
  • Register to be an organ donor 
  • Adopt a child after marriage (if I ever get married, which I hope to do :p)
  • Adopt a seal (pay money monthly to help take care of a sick one, I love them)
  • Meet Allstar Weekend ♥ (just had to throw that in there)
  • Learn how to play at least one instrument very well (preferably the piano or sax, I tried the alto sax for a year & love it, but that’s another story)
  • Travel the world 
  • Make my relationships better with my cousins :p
  • Go scuba diving
  • Get a tattoo (haha, just kidding on that one, I would never get a tattoo O__o)
  • Learn how to ride a bike (I still don’t know how, I’m horrible at balancing)
  • Learn how to ice skate …
  • Learn how to roller blade (I can’t do anything -__-)
  • Go to an amazing concert (preferably adub’s)
  • Have an epic snowball fight with tons of people!
  • Become a very smart person!!! 
  • Make the world a better place because of something I did that will be beneficial to everyone! 
I think that’s all for now :) I have so many more packed in the back of my mind but there’s too many to mention, those are just the main ones :) Sorry if I bored you. So what are your dreams for  the future? I think it’s interesting. Have a nice day, thank you very much for reading! :)
My Hello Kitty neighborhood! ♥ I absolutely love Hello Kitty. I’m sorry the picture isn’t very good quality :( The coloring looks much better in real life, lol. Have a good one :)
