“When somebody says, “I don’t think women should be raped for wearing short skirts, but what do they expect when they do go out like that?” what you are actually saying is that if a woman in a short skirt is raped, you will be less likely to hold her rapist culpable. Which makes a…
I once read a blog by someone (whom I am now not speaking to) that listed the things they liked about themselves and their lives. It’s irony that I’m sitting here, sad and depressed (mostly because I’m no longer talking to this person), and about to do the same damn thing!
So…here we go, why the Meg-chan’s life is awesome!
I have a great apartment. I have lived all over the place and this place, by far, is my favorite. I have fairly cool roommates who put up with my antics and sometimes even join in. I don’t like that there’s not a tv in the living room at the moment, but that’s fixable. My room is slightly messy, but talking about things I DON’T like is not what this blog is about, is it? Even though it’s a bit messy, I’m working hard to keep it organized and I LOVE how colorful it is. I love my rainbow curtains and bedsheets, and I love the PresentCat and Anamanaguchi pictures on my walls (my bed is coordinated to match the two cats in the Anamanaguchi picture). I love the pink and yellow shelves that I painted myself. I love the posters of Yuna, Belldandy, Chicago, UHF, RENT, Scott Pilgrim and Hairspray on my wall. I love the artwork that I got from AWA as well as my Judge’s pick and derpy dog painting. I have posters I saved from my Tokyo GoGo flyer hanging session and rainbow piggie slippers hanging out in the corner.
I love that I burn incense all the time and nobody tells me NOT to burn it cause it bothers them. I love that I’ve gotten into hookah and I have one of my very own arriving in the mail soon! I love that I love to take baths even if they turn into 5 minute sessions cause I got bored. I like the clothes I wear whether they’re casual or dressy, and the variety of styles that I have. I like my black beret I have.
I like the people I know. I like when I get a random text from someone I haven’t heard from in a while. I like that I have friends from MTSU that still make me laugh. I like that I can connect to all these people via Facebook. I like that I have friends I’ve never met before on Twitter that help me when I’m down. I like that one of my Twitter friends will randomly send me pictures of his dachshund. I like that people think I’m adorable, cute and fun to be around. =)
I love my family. I like that when my dad sneezes he follows it with some sort of “choobaahhabana” sound or “God damnit” or “wooooooo.” I like that my mom is ditsy and she’s probably the only person on the planet I can actually make fun of. I like that my brother is someone I can relate to and talk to about video games, music or the internet. We can have inside jokes and memes and we get each other. I like that my uncle is laid back and has worked on movies. I like that the woman he’s married to is the complete opposite but somehow, they still get along and enjoy Mystery Science Theater together.
I really like my school. I haven’t been there much yet, but so far, I absolutely love it. I love that I ride the bus to school instead of having to find a parking space. I love that I’m taking Japanese and that it’s hard as shit. I love that I’m taking acting despite my intense fear of it and that I’m also taking lighting despite that I don’t really care about lighting that much. I like UT’s university center and how much of a choice you get with food.
I like my job! I love my job! I love delivering pizzas and getting paid for it. I like the people I work with. I like that I know how to do practically everything and I feel like a valuable asset to the team.
I love my cooking skills. I love cooking period! It’s therapeutic and the end result is even better! If I don’t know how to make something, that’s even better. I like to challenge myself!
I love musical theater. I like singing random songs from musicals with other people. I like being around theater people. They’re usually nice and helpful. I was about ready to give up, but there’s a drive in me that wants me to keep going. I like that drive. I like that I never give up.
Above all else, I like that I never give up. I like that despite all the tears, all the heartbreaks, all the failures, all the lost friends, all the dislocated kneecaps, all the shame, all the drinking, all the sickness, all the fear, all the anxiety, all the good and the bad that I’ve experience just this year alone, I’m still ticking. I still get back up, dust myself off, and I’m still working. I’m still going. I’m undefeated. You can break me a million times, but I will keep fighting. For myself…for my goals…for my future. I’m still here.
