“the whole fandom, crazy twilight hype thing, it’s all very fleeting. but it’s really put me in a place that makes it easier to have fun with the job - you don’t have to fight to do things you care about.”—kristen stewart, on ‘selling out’
-honestly, the first thing i consumed today was a heineken (yeah)
-vegetable fried rice & egg roll & a fortune cookie (with the fortune: the sure way to predict the future is to invent it.)
-grilled stuffed green peppers
-ending the day with milk tea
(if i was a chick, and this was posted on a social networking site, this is the part where i’d say “ugh i’m like totez fats” and all my fri3nDz comment and say “gherrrl whatevz. you’re like, totez skinny.”)

i had a glimpse today back into my life from my 5-8th grade years. it made me want to throw this out there.
many of you are still in school, and if not, you have jobs, or you’re involved in SOMETHING where you’re around a group of people that you know, but maybe just on an acquaintances-basis. i just want to encourage everyone to look for that one person whos different. and by that, i mean the person who’s looked over, or maybe comes off a little shy or quiet, or maybe even seems straight up weird. if you haven’t reached out to them, just to say hello, or ask about a particular interest that you know you might have in common. it’s easy to get caught up in things going on in your own life & not take notice that maybe someone around you could use a just simple conversation.
in experience, i can tell you that in my younger years, i was probably seen as that ‘weird’ kid. i was an only child and i housed the craziest imagination with no one really to share it with. which was fine, i was oblivious to anything outside of my dream world usually, but i never quite understood why i didn’t have friends like most of the kids at school did. i think i set myself up for it, with my glowing alien necklaces & unicorn/fairy EVERYTHING, doing my hair just like gwen stefani did (not knowing you can only pull that off if you’re …gwen), buying clothes i thought might make them notice me, & making up stories that Reba Macentire was my Aunt just to have something that the other kids would want to talk to me about. hahah.
So without going on and on, I just want you to be the CHANGE, and go up to that person and say hello! The simplest things can be so huge. It’s hard to do that sometimes if you ponder it, so don’t think & just do it. Asking them just a couple simple questions about what they’re into or introducing them to one of your favorite bands or websites…just SOMETHING… might just make their whole year. And who knows, they might end up being awesome (usually i find they are ALWAYS the coolest & funniest people i’ve been blessed to encounter) and you’ll be so thankful for a new found friend.
also. just want to add that in my experience in working at a youth center, it genuinely gets me down when a kid is playing by himself/herself or asks to play with a group and isn’t welcomed. i personally go over there and play whatever they want (even if it’s candyland). we strike up a conversation and it’s absolute magic. some of the ‘weirdos’ are the best and fun people and it really bums me out when these ppl are overlooked. simple things, yall.

m.i.a. has got to be one of the most refreshing artists out. she’s probably the only popular artist giving hip hop any sort of real progression. when someone from ‘obscurity’ finally ‘makes it,’ i can’t help but feel like culture is growing haha. if that makes sense?
for her new album (coming out sometime this year), she had some random people sing parts of a song into her phone. story goes, she was calling her cell phone provider for service, and while she was waiting, she got the idea for them to sing parts in the song while she recorded.
“I was having issues with my cable and wireless, and I was on the phone [with tech support] for three hours, and I thought, ‘Maybe this needs to be part of my music, could you just learn these lyrics and sing it down the phone to me?’ Ten phone calls later, I have Internet that sticks and a song.”
