the way people live, does not affect my life.
I hate when people tell me what I'm doing is lame or they think I should be living differently, etc.
Well when I rag on people for the choices they make that I think are bad, I'm pretty much being a hypocrite.
I call people fake just because they like something different now. I lose friends over the fact that they are "copying" others.
Of course, someone taking words out of your mouth and trying to make them sound original is annoying as hell but some people are like that.
We are merely teenagers. No matter how much we want to think we're more than that, in all honesty, we're not. We're all just placed in a group of confused people struggling to find themselves.
Some will mature faster than others, some will get straight A's and know exactly where they are going with life, some will conform, some will rebel, some will do some drugs, some will choose otherwise, some have no idea who they are yet, and so on.
The past two books I've read, have taught me a lot.
[If you haven't yet, you should read The Perks of Being a Wallflower and To Kill a Mockingbird at some point in your life.]
They taught me: there is no such thing as a bad person, just a person that requires a bit more understanding then others. We all have bad days, we all make mistakes. At least once in a lifetime, you will travel in the wrong direction and no one other then you can fix that. Place yourself in another's shoes before you judge them. Learn about their past, family, and what they are currently dealing with.
Everyone is going to change a million times.
People are going to like the same thing as you.
Everyone will make mistakes.
People will disagree and try to change you.
Being yourself does not mean that you're the complete opposite of everyone else.
Being yourself means that you're who you are and like what you like and have the power to overcome others' opinions.

I wish more girls would realize that...
...he doesn't "love" you, he just wants to sleep with you
...your at-home piercings look ridiculous
...you're not original, you're just fake
...how many guys you sleep with or date, does not determine who are as a person
...if you're a slut of COURSE all of the hot guys are gonna hit on you. But going back to my first statement,well, you get it I hope.
...posting a half nude picture of yourself and having all the guys think you're "beautiful" is not actual beauty
...wearing your anti-war save the planet shirts is doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to stop the war OR save the planet. It's just a fashion trend! Actually take action if you care about it!
...you are not a hippie just because you like the peace sign. Yet again, just another trend.
...writing on your shoes does not make you grunge
...when going to meet a new guy and "hoping nothing happens" is a lie. Nothing will happen unless you want it to happen. It didn't "just slip"
...you're fat because you choose to be fat
...you shouldn't expect others to feel sorry for your mistakes
...crying at school is not cool. Everyone realizes you're just wanting attention.
...you shouldn't pierce your lip in class. Your boyfriend will dump you and others will think it's hysterically funny. [everyone should know who that one is directed towards]
...people aren't jealous of you, they just think you're retarded
That's all for now. Although I'll probably add more later
