Is it REALLY that hard to tell someone we like them?!

Girls, especially, why can’t we just admit it when we like a guy? I know it’s a risk you’re taking, with rejection as a possible outcome and all. But, really, if a guy has “I like you baack!” written on his forehead, why can’t us girls let him know?!

Coming from a girl who is very proud, I’ve only admitted that I liked a guy to him once. Meaning, the literal words “I like you”, came from my mouth directly to the guy himself. The rest of them either found out from my friends (believe me, they’re the first to know), or just assumed that I liked them. By the way, DO have the “I like you, you like me?” conversation that way both people are on the same page. I know, I’ve had that problem several times. Anyways, it’s soo bad that I never tell guys how I feel. It would be one thing if I never had these feelings for guys, but I do, all the time and I’m too damn proud to admit it.

I’ve been reading a book (which I recommend it’s funny!) about how this guy makes it to 25 years old without ever having a girlfriend. He had plenty of girls that he had potential relationships with, but none of them ever worked out. The book is called We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist, if you’re interested. Josh is a leg amputee, a YouTuber, motivational speaker, skier, as well as an author, and an attractive guy on top of that. Wow. So I bet you’re wondering why didn’t this guy have any relationships for the first 25 years of his life? I’m over halfway done with the book and most of the time, he and the girl liked each other but… he never knew that she liked him! Come on, girls!

I feel like this happens all around the world, every hour, every day. What seems like obvious signals to us girls means nothing to guys, just based on Josh Sundquist’s perspective as he retells the stories about each girl! We need to up our game, girls. And I am not excluded in this! Poor guys, trying to muster up the courage to ask us out, when they’re not even sure if we think of them as more than a friend. I have a solution: the girl just bites the bullet, walks up to him and says, “Dude, I like you.” That’s all we gotta do. After that, he can do one of two things. He will decide he wants something with you and talk to you about it, or he will decide he doesn’t feel that way about you. I know the most cliché thing to say is, “Well at least you don’t have to worry about him finding out now.” But, what about his reaction?

I sincerely believe that no guy is going to jump back three feet when you tell him. Why? Because most of the time, if you’ve given any signal, he will have the feeling that you do like him. He’s also not going to say anything like “Why would you like me?!” or something like that because at my age, getting “I like you” is a compliment. I just told you I think you’re hot, funny, smart, and sweet enough for me to become infatuated with you. I mean, you’re welcome. So I feel like if us girls just simply let him know, so he doesn’t have to do EVERYTHING, he can be reassured to make the next move and every move after that. I feel like we should at least throw a guy one bone and admit that we like him first. And if he responds very rudely, then you know that he would be an asshole in a relationship. And that karma’s a bitch.

So there y’all go, nice and/or shy guys, I feel you. Honestly, I’ve had guys tell me that they like me and I don’t feel the same, but I appreciated their honesty. I felt better that the tension was cut and we were out in the open with each other. I hope this has pumped you up reading this as it was for me when writing this post. I am so tired of waiting on him to see if he really does like me for real or not. I’m going to let him know, like it’s not going to be a big deal. If I can do it, so can you. Stop your excuses!!

Ya Know What? 15 things I’m going to do in 2015.

I know, I know. It’s so cliché that I’m super motivated at the beginning of 2015. A new year, a new me. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m not claiming that I am a changed person or am going to change necessarily, but I need to get some shit done this year. I’m going to be 18 this year, and I’ll be graduating high school and going to college. So, it’s kind of a big year for me but I’m so excited! I have a few goals already off the top of my head, from big to small. I hope I can inspire some of you guys do make a list of 15 things you’ll do this year too!

1. Get a job.

2. Start my credit account and get all my savings straight.

3. Lose at least 20 pounds.

4. Save more money.

5. Continue to improve upon my knowledge by reading at least 20 books of various genres. And other stuff yet to come to mind.

6. Improve my overall health, as far as exercising and eating well.

7. Genuinely try my best at my freshman year of college.

8. Find some new friends at college. Friends that will support me.

9. Have more fun by being more social, and not worrying about stuff.

10. Stop worrying SO much. Everything is going to be alright.

11. Update my look, my clothes specifically, to look older and sophisticated. But not too old.

12. Try to appreciate the people who do so much for me everyday.

13. Pick up after myself more. I need to keep my room clean, wash my dishes, and wash my own clothes and sheets.

14. Take care of myself. Take a hot bath every once in a while, get out there and do what I enjoy doing, put makeup on and do my hair so I feel more confident in public.

15. Find a relationship that I want to be in and that I will enjoy. I need a guy that is caring and protective of me from people who might try to hurt me. And other things, but I don’t want to write a novel.

That got waay deep, but all of it was more or less true. I bet a lot of you can relate to some of these. I honestly feel like I’m ready to take on a lot of these things, I’m ready to take 2015 by the horns! I’m so excited, I can’t wait to taste the success of getting shit done. That’s why I said screw “New Year, New me”, and I say “Ya Know What? Imma do these 15 things and get myself somewhere in life.”

A Poisonous Death

It’s okay now, the cold set in
Endless nights with the bitter wind
She’ll be alright now
As Death leads her way

Sweetheart, put down your poison
Can’t you see this is the epitome
Of unhappiness and unfulfilled dreams
Toxicity builds from day to day

Slowly your insides grow evident
I’m not sure I can see you anymore
As a respectable person
Perhaps I linger in the past

Or maybe you deceive people
They believe you’re innocent
But now the revelation of truth
Forces you to bottle up your pride

Don’t worry, someone will care for you
The one who cannot refuse to accept
The one who welcomes poison
Tidings to The King of Decay

63. Compete with a friend in eating homemade cookies. Christmas cookies or chocolate chip preferably.

64. Own every book I’ve ever read. I want a library in my house.

65. Start an annual cook-off or something like that in my city.

66. Make a huge mosaic of myself. Like, at least ten feet tall.

68. Get a piggy back ride from Shaq. Wwwweeeeee!

69. Be an extra and maybe meet the cast on The Big Bang Theory.

Oh, yes.

Faith, Peace, and Hope are Synonymous

I stand in a sea of human masses
To divert my mind, I made feeble passes
My heart is pieces of glass
But I must save this peace for last

Faith bores into our souls
Or so I’m told, I’m forced
To choose a side in a fight I don’t believe in
I don’t believe in much anymore

But hope is worth striving for
Dreams are to live for
For now I’ll sit silent, pondering choices I shall make
Our endeavors wait until we wake

Sims 4 Tips!!

I grew up playing The Sims, so you know I was super stoked about the release of The Sims 4! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the game right when it was released and then I had this entire post written before my computer shut down and didn’t save it. So, I apologize for my super belated Sims 4 tips, and this post will probably be a work in progress as time goes by and expansion packs are released (yay!). Also, I have screenshots to upload on here but I am currently having trouble with updating my game so I can’t launch the game. I’ll be adding those later as well. Anywho, please enjoy some pointers that I take advantage of.

  1. Create a Sim that is the opposite of your personality.
    This may seem a little off, why would it matter if my sims have a similar personality as me? To create a sim similar to the player’s personality, this is the recipe to boredom burnout. Sure, it’s cool to see what you’d be like as a sim at first, but for long-term play the same personalities over and over again get old. Plus, I really enjoyed when I created a sim that was physically driven and socially driven, two things that I am not.

    She loves to dance. I don't like to dance, when people are watching.

  2. If possible, save your money to buy nicer furniture.
    Everyone has to start out taking cold showers, eating burnt food, and watching crappy cable. But, if the piece of furniture you are buying has nicer options you can’t afford, consider putting the purchase on hold. It may be worth it to purchase the nicer item when it comes to TVs, couches, and other non-essentials for more comfort, environment (which will give sims a Nicely Decorated Happy moodlet), and nicer quality things tend to break far less often.
  3. Don’t Ignore Whims, Use them to tell a story.
    Do you ever get bored in The Sims and lose track of where the story of your sims unfold? Why not use your sim’s wishes as a guide map? In the Sims 4, your sims have moods that affect their wants (whims). And sometimes as a result, completed whims prolong their current mood. No matter what the whim is, there are points to earn in which you can buy some satisfactory rewards with. Can’t beat those game-changers.
  4. Always multitask.
    So a new feature in The Sims 4 is multitasking, and I love it and will never go back to earlier versions because of this. Your sims will talk with each other while eating, watching TV together, sitting at the bar, or even while on the computer. Your sims will also play on their phone while watching TV or sitting on the toilet (how realistic is that?!). My

    Sitting on the toilet..

    Sitting on the toilet..

    sim also likes to use the toilet while reading a book. All crap aside, pun intended, why not kill two birds in one stone? Fill up two needs at the same time, that’s what I call convenient.

  5. Still bored with The Sims 4?
    Check out forums on the internet like Mod The Sims for Sims 4 challenges. If you don’t know what a Sims challenge is, it is basically where someone posts a game or challenge with rules and regulations that they made up and you can play with it in The Sims games. That means that it may not have any set rules or a lot of set rules, and the challenges may or may not include cheats. I even linked the Sims 4 challenges Mod the Sims to Mod the Sims for you, you’re welcome. 🙂
  6. Take advantage of the updates and the free content!
    EA has released updates that added pools and new careers to the Sims 4! Yay!! Most of the time Origin will automatically update your game for you, but make sure by right-clicking on The Sims 4 while in “My Games” in Origin, then select “Check for Updates”. Also, EA has released The Holiday Celebration Pack for free that you can download for new furniture such as wreaths, Christmas trees, and a Hanukkah menorah! It also comes with some

    Just a few of the holiday decorations. Holiday tree, wreath, and garland.

    Just a few of the holiday decorations. Holiday tree, wreath, and garland.

    cute sweaters for your sims to wear!! How great is that?! You can also download this from Origin, I right-clicked my game, then clicked “View Game Details”. The Holiday Celebration Pack should show up under “Add-ons & Bonuses” and give you the option to download.


Wonderful colors wash my face
Whenever you’re around
You’re eyes are the only ones
I can see my happiness

Singing out the melody
Of the day in
Keep me warm as the tides
And the sun fades

I reach for a touch
I need something tangible
I see you, and I’m reaching
But we’re just too far apart

And now the tides
Have come to stay
And I’m just drowning,
Drowning away

I wish that I could
Tell you that I need you
But maybe you
Wouldn’t care anyway

I’m just drowning
In my own agony,
But perhaps one day
We will meet on the same wavelength.

My Favorite Young Up-And-Coming Artists of the Year!

Martin Garrix looking fresh.

Shawn Mendes. BTW, I think they're all cute, even if he's a year younger than me :)

Shawn Mendes. BTW, I think they’re all cute, even if this one’s a year younger than me 🙂

I have three guys in mind that I wanted to post about because I have been loving their music! These artists you may have heard of, they’re gaining popularity super quickly! These teenage artists have made their break and I am sincerely impressed: Martin Garrix (18), Troye Sivan (19), and Shawn Mendes (16)! I included these guys ages because they are around my age and I just couldn’t imagine being in their shoes, especially at their level of talent. I know, some of you are probably rolling your eyes thinking ‘Another Justin Bieber or One Direction’ type of thing. But my argument is that their music is different from most other pop music, they are telling a story applicable to everyone’s lives through their music. I actually am not a fan of Justin Bieber or One Direction, I get their songs stuck in my head (but who can blame me after the 1,000th time its been played), but I don’t genuinely enjoy their music.

Troye Sivan (probably from a few years ago)

I love these boys voices, and Martin’s DJing since that’s more of what he does. I have listened to both Troye’s EP “TRXYE” and Shawn’s EP “The Shawn Mendes EP” on repeat, especially tracks “Happy Little Pill” and “Life of the Party”. I believe these guys can actually sing. Troye has a YouTube channel (that I subscribe to and love), but I’m not sure if Shawn does. Shawn Mendes’ “Life of the Party” actually reminds me of Gavin McGraw’s “Not Over You”, which is a good song and artist! I haven’t given Martin Garrix as much love because I honestly haven’t delved into his music too much more besides “Animals”. I included him in this post not only because I do look forward to him releasing more music, but because I see the potential in all three of these guys and they are all in the same age group. Our generation is growing up, and no matter what anyone else may say, we have talent, aspirations, and ambition. I’m so proud of us ’90’s kids. ❤

If you haven’t heard their music but are curious: you can find each on iTunes or I like to listen to the full EPs on YouTube!
