i guess there’s some more stuff i can do now (i.e vote and drink in most countries) but i don’t feel any different. more people have wished me a happy birthday than i think ever have before, so thank you!
today my friend Angel took some photos of me for my birthday so here they are:
we saw two movies: Hotel Transylvania 3 and Christopher Robin.
both movies were delightful but in the theater where we saw christopher robin i was thoroughly upset by the group of kids around my age who were high, noisy, and overall rude.
they would talk at the screen, talk to each other, laugh during any quiet (noncomedic) moment, and didn’t stop even though i clearly heard the person next to them ask them to be quiet. and not to mention the dude in the row in front of me who was on his phone scrolling through FACEBOOK for at least 40% of the movie.
i’m not too awful of a prude, but this really pisses me off! and rightfully so! do you know how much it costs to see a movie? and how rarely i go to the movie theater?
everyone deserves to have a decent experience and to hear the damn dialogue!
so if you’re a not so considerate person reading this i’d like to lay out some ground rules for the next time you enter a theater.
turn your phone off or leave the theater if you have to use it
don’t get high before coming unless you’re seeing a bill and ted movie
if someone asks you to be more polite, BE MORE POLITE
the characters on screen are speaking to each other, not to you so don’t reply to them
understand that not everyone has the money to see every new release so this may be special to them (for example me, for whom this was a birthday present) so maybe just don’t act up
if a scene is quiet mimic the volume level
hopefully you may have learned a new trick to try at the movie theater next time you go or this confirmed your stance of “don’t be a d*ck”.
i’m just gonna ramble for a while and hopefully it’ll be interesting.
right now samoa and posh are fighting in the middle of the living room and about every 5 minutes i have to get up to get him to stop humping her. can’t wait to get him fixed.
marshmallow has really calmed down since getting fixed and hasn’t humped the cat even once since his procedure. he’s such a good dude. you wanna see a picture of me and marshmallow? here’s one:
i just love all of my pets so much!!!!!
i wish everyone had the luxury of loving other beings the way i love my pets. it’s really special and it’s not a feeling i get from anyone else.
you know what’s a weird trend? adding the suffix -core to everything. i love angelcore aesthetics but i think we’re going too far with the core thing. there’s honeycore, lovecore, gardencore, cottagecore, etc etc. it’s really a big thing on tumblr (btw follow my tumblr).
i guess there’s a lot o weird trends though. i particularly dislike the in my feelings challenge just because it’s really an oversaturated market at this point and i think people are trying to keep it a thing even though it should be fading. all though that’s kinda what i’m doing right now by talking about it.
samoa and posh walk like humans on all fours and it’s sometimes a little unsettling. sorry just had to interject that in.
oh god, my birthday’s in 2 days!
you guys won’t leave me as i age right?
yeah, you won’t.
hmm, what else to say…
i got a new wallpaper on my phone today! it’s my melody! she’s my favorite sanrio character.
sometimes i just wish i could buy the whole stationary section on the sanrio website.
today i didn’t eat a “real lunch” i just ate a bunch of hummus with pretzels but it’s ok i plan on eating”real dinner” tonight.
the hummus memes twitter account is my favorite one.
it feels like i talk about twitter a lot on her doesn’t it?
it’s because a lot happens on there, ya know?
my favorite thing to do on twitter is look up people and then a random year and read their old tweets haha. they’re always so terrible!
listen, i’m one of the preachiest vegans you’ll ever meet but honestly the way the vegan twitter community has been yelling at Kalel for eating a few non vegan candy bars is just insufferable!
i think that the term vegan allows for space to make mistakes and space to interpret as needed. for example: i believe that sunscreen is topical medicine so if a vegan has no available cruelty free sunscreen in their area, it doesn’t make them not vegan to use animal tested sunscreen so as to prevent them from getting cancer.
i think this makes us look extremely dogmatic and unapproachable when we scold people for making mistakes. yes, technically Kalel isn’t vegan if she has a damn kitkat but does that invalidate the good she has done for animals by promoting and normalizing plant based diets?
I’m not going to lie and say i never slip up but does that undo the fact that in my lifetime i’ve inspired multiple friends to go vegetarian/vegan/reduce meat consumption/try tofu and lessen the amount of animal suffering there is on earth?
and does that mean freegan people don’t make a tangible difference in how peple view food waste if they happen to eat cheese out of the garbage?
i don’t think any of you should change your opinions, in fact i likely agree with you, but please don’t be so outwardly vitriolic.
if you’ve never met me in real life you may not know that i have “double joints” in my hips and knees.
today i sat with my legs crossed for about 40 minutes and my garbage knees were in so much pain.
back in february i had an episode where i hobbled for almost a month. why? my left hip popped out of its socket when i was asleep and stayed out for hours. i felt like an idiot walking on my toes because that was the only way my leg was comfortable.
i hadn’t had a problem like that since my knee hyperextended when i was about to be a freshman in high school and i hobbled for about 2 weeks then.
i really need to find something that can help with my joints and i’m scared i’ll have to start wearing knee braces :(((((( they don’t make hip braces do they? oh my god what if i had to get a hip replacement when i’m like 30!?
that’s terrifying and i’m only making myself feel worse!
i’ll end the post before i send myself into a panic.
has anyone tried those cosequin supplements that supposedly help joints? do they work?
ok, love you bye.
please follow my blog if you wanna hear more complaining
i don’t know why i felt the need to introduce myself in mandarin, but i did it.
i feel like i’m stagnating as far as stuff to right about goes so i guess i’ll tell you how my day went.
i woke up at 5:30 much to my chagrin and since it was so close to 6:30 (when i try to wake up) i decided i’d just stay up. i watched a few reviews on the casio tr mini which i really wanna buy. and then i listened to some music. i’ve been listening to into the new world by snsd a lot lately, it’s such a good song i really recommend it if you somehow haven’t heard it before.
suddenly it was 6:45 so i got up and started preparing for my morning walk. i checked on the animals, put on my outfit & sunscreen and then i went on my walk. i cut my walk short because my hips have been really irritated recently and i started to hurt around 35 minutes into walking so i went back home.
once i got home i stretched since i was well warmed up and then i started studying. i studied mandarin and japanese for about 2 hours. i filmed some of it but i didn’t realize until after filming that my camera didn’t film where my paper was and rather filmed my desk the whole time. big mad.
then i had breakfast: oatmeal with peanut butter.
i moved to the living room where i lived for a while. i read a few of qiu qiu’s old blog posts (i recommend reading qiu qiu’s blog if you never have) and then i did something kind of embarrassing.
i put on makeup just to take pictures of myself.
the pictures i took turned out wonderful though. here’s one:
i then removed my makeup and ate lunch.
my lunch was late, around 15:00, so now i’m not very hungry for dinner.
i got a new chinese book in the mail (thanks mom) and now i’ve moved once again to my bed where i’m writing this…
i’m probably gonna have rice and avocado for dinner because i don’t feel up to making anything fancy.
i’ll be officially an adult and once that hits me i’m gonna feel even less accomplished.
for my whole life i’ve felt like i’m super behind everyone else because i was late to the game as far as fashion, social skills, relationships, etc. so now i have a new milestone to say “well i’m an adult and i still haven’t done this” so my self esteem is definitely gonna take a blow on my 18th birthday.
i’ve never been a super happy person on my birthdays because it’s almost always less of an exciting thing for me and more of a reminder that i’m gonna die someday and thus mildly horrifying.
i suppose since this post and my general philosophy are so negative i’ll make some resolutions for my 18th year. i’ve never done new years resolutions but i’ve always silently had goals that i want to reach by a certain age. so before i’m 19…
i’ll write 25 songs
i’ll improve each language skill by at least one level (i.e beginner to intermediate)
