Getting Ready As Ritual

I thoroughly enjoy
“Getting ready”

It’s a form of ritual for me

I like everything about it

The shower:
The water and the smell of soap
The facial products:
The toner, lotion, foundation
The hairstyle:
Brushing, straightening, curling
The makeup:
Eyeshadow, lipstick, mascara
The outfit:
The shoes, dresses, tops, bottoms
The accessories:
The earrings, rings, necklace
And I particularly have a
Tremendous love for

Not Cute Enough

For the entire months of
April and May
I have preoccupied myself
With changing my “look”,
Which has mostly consisted of
Buying shit (Retail)

I’m very much aware of
The urge I feel to buy,
And that has lead me to
Take some serious timeout
And introspect

Why do I have the urge to buy?

The Weight-Loss Struggle

During lunch I was struck
By the sight of two
Seemingly happy
Young adult women

What caught my attention
Was the size of their body,
Which displayed an
Over-enthusiasm for all things

Cop a Feel... For How You Feel

Learning to pay attention
To how I feel has been
A life long goal

Learning how to know what I feel
And then resolve my feeling
Is an even greater ongoing life goal

I've been more apt to throw
Out the proverbial

Turning A Hobby Into A Job

I begin a lot of little projects

They tend to be projects
That need ongoing attention
And maintenance

Like this blog

However, if I'm going to be
1000% honest with myself
As to why my projects don't turn

Makeup Can't Cover You Up

America loves makeup

I love makeup

It’s fun, interesting, and challenging

I don’t think makeup is a necessity
Nor do I feel naked without it

I also don’t think makeup
Is a form of covering or hiding

Makeup is used to conform to

You Can't Add Nor Subtract

For a long time I’ve been
Trying to fatten a list of reasons
Detailing why
I’m "good enough"

Last week,
I laid down to

Not Courageous, Just No Choice

A friend expressed
That she sees me as
For the way I choose to
Live life

My only reply was
“Honestly, I feel like I don’t have a choice”

I didn't choose to value what I value

Man-Made Concept


What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing?

Of course not

It’s worth all the teachings,

I Can't Be Alone

I updated my Facebook status today with
“I’m the least busy person I know”
And that is absolutely true

I plan my weekdays the day of, and
I plan my weekends on Friday afternoon

Most people I know plan

I Need You

Has always seemed like
A huge burden 

Needing someone and being needed
Both sound equally as dreadful

The feeling of “need” has the
Tendency to feel like a

Loose Leaf Paper

How do you feel when you spend money?

Do you feel excited and content?
Do you feel fearful and remorseful?

Do you feel appreciative?
Do you feel anxious?

How To Get It

How do you go about
Getting the things you want?

Do you force yourself through
Circumstances like a pit bull?

Do you aim to achieve until
Someone notices and rewards
You for your efforts?

Do you demand what you want

Growing Pains

I think it absolute SUCKS
How we have to relive certain situations
Until we fully realize the growth
The situation is meant to instill in us

We can all point at
A certain situation that
Makes us say:

Introspection Is The Way

Do you ever get on your own nerves?
Do you ever make yourself angry at yourself?
Do you ever wish you could just shut yourself up?
Do you ever wish you could stop yourself
From doing that same thing over an over again?

I definitely do all of the above

Better Than One Thing

Is there such a thing as
Being better than someone else?

How is "better" qualified?

Better looking
Better educated

Anger, Angry, Angered

The feeling of anger
Is not a comfortable one for me

It's more likely for me to
Breakout in tears from the
Emotion of being anger
Than to unleash a wrath

But given I'm all about

Take Parenting Classes Please

It seems to me that
Parents have a superhuman
ability to abuse every ounce
of self-esteem out of their children
by shaming them to the point
of self-loathing

This is the year 2014 right?

So why are we still bringing
Up children like we're brand-new
At doing it??

It's physically painful for me
To be around parents who
Shame, ridicule, insult, abuse,
Belittle, dismiss, or ignore
Their children

It drives me crazy!
And I'm feeling crazy right now

Please, please, please
Take parenting courses
Before having children

That child you call "crazy";
Just knows you're boring and
Can't help acting out his/her boredom

That talkative annoying child of yours;
Just has a higher IQ than you do

That introverted child
You call weird;
Just has better things to
Entertain in solitude than
To hangout with ordinary people like you

Bottom line

They're far smarter than you and I
And we need to stop beating it out of them
With our boring adults tasks and judgments

Sayonara Body

I came across a documentary
On the YouTube
About competitive sports and steroids

There was a horrific scene
Where a bodybuilder
Was using a syringe with a

Feeling of Knowing

To have the feeling of
Is so precious, rare, and often
Seems more ephemeral than not

Being able to get to
A place where you
Just know:
