Something's been bothering me the last couple of days, and I felt like I should talk about it in here. I was hanging out with some friends the other day, not really paying attention to their conversation, since they're always talking about the same stuff over and over again. That was until I heard something that caught my attention, two of my friends turned to my other friend and said "You have the potential to be very beautiful, but you're not utilizing it". At first I was like they're probably just gonna give her some tips on how to accentuate what she already has, but that's not what they meant at all. They told her to get some lip fillers to make her lips bigger, and get injections done to make her nose smaller. I don't know about you guys, but to me thats not accentuating what you've got, that's completely changing it into something that it's not. That really upset me, it upset me how straightforward and serious they were when they said it, but what made me even more upset, was how my friend was actually considering it.
I'm not against people getting cosmetic surgeries, not at all. If that's something you really want, and something that would lead to your happiness then that's great and I'm happy for you. What I'm against, is people feeling self conscious and unhappy with the way they look, because of society's standards. Beauty does not lie in a single form, you do not have to look or be a certain way to be beautiful. Beauty lies in many forms, and every single person is beautiful in their own distinct way. I don't know why, but to me everything about a person that they might consider a flaw, is probably my favorite feature of them. Wanna know why? Because it's something unique to that person, that distinguishes them from everyone else, just like a trademark. It makes them more them. Basically. If that even makes any sense. I really do feel strongly about this, and I wish more people would just disregard society's idea of beauty and create their own. If we all looked the way society pressures us to look, we'd all be the same, and how boring would that be? Different is good, different is exciting, but most of all different is beautiful.
Until next time,

I've been putting this off for a long time now, cause let's face it, writing your first ever blog post is scary, and maybe even a little bit awkward. However, I've decided that it's best to just do it now, and get it out of the way. So, without further ado, welcome to my blog!
The reason I've been wanting to make a blog, is because I feel like I have so many things that I'd like to say but don't, for whatever reason that may be, or opinions that I feel like I can't voice, or maybe even just sharing some life experiences I've gone through that might hopefully help someone out there going through the same thing. Basically, I just want this to be my escape from life, a place where I can vent, and say whatever it is I want to say without holding back. Hence, the reason why it's anonymous. I don't want to categorize this blog, cause I feel like my thoughts are too scattered, and my interests are just too diverse to fit under one category, so I guess it's a lifestyle blog? If you really want to categorize it I mean, or maybe just a pointless one? I'm not sure, I'll let you decide. (Probably more pointless).
I'm not even sure if anyone's gonna read this, or anything else I might write on here for that matter. But hey! It doesn't really matter, does it? I mean thats how diaries are written right? Like they're meant to be read by someone else, but then they're kept hidden, for the person to reminisce about when they're older. If that's the case, then this is my diary, except, instead of it being written on actual paper, it's written online, and instead of it being kept hidden, it's out there for anyone to read.
I think I've rambled on too much for what was meant to be an awkward hello, so I'm just gonna stop here for now.
Until next time,
