Enjoy!

Overly Dramatic Pictures

Happy Wednesday everyone! Through my time surfing the Internet on sites such as Tumblr and Pinterest, I have noticed a common theme amongst things that teenage girls reblog or repin. Most of the things I see consist of an overly dramatic quote placed on top of an overly edited, completely insignificant photograph. I assume some of you know what I am talking about, but for those of you that don’t, let us take a look at some examples.

1. Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want. What a poetic and completely selfless statement, brilliantly executed through this photo of a girl in cowboy boots, casually scratching her ankle and staring at the ground. Maybe she dropped some loose change and is looking at that, because it is what she wants. And you know what, she deserves it.

2. Don’t forget who you are. But in case you do, draw a heart and delicately place your feet around the edge. Make sure you position your feet so they are slightly pigeon-toed, because that’s quirky and unique. It will also remind you of who you are, obviously.

3. Sometimes, you have to be your own hero. A truer statement has never been spoken, I’m sure of it. Just ask Hercules; he was a hero. Nothing says heroism quite like a girl uncomfortably touching her head, casually staring at an empty road. This screams hero and independence for days!

4. They’ll judge you anyway, but this girl doesn’t mind. She’s doing her. Making such a goofy face, throwing her hands in the air like she just don’t care. She’s in a super secret looking location, but she’s just loving life, so it doesn’t matter where she is or who she’s with. Sorry friend in the striped shirt in the corner of the photo, but you didn’t quite make the cut. Your facial expression probably didn’t express just how goofy and fun loving you are, quite like your friend’s does. And don’t mind the fact that the writing covering up her eyes makes her anonymous, making judging her impossible anyway, because if you were to judge her, she wouldn’t care.

5. Five ways to wear a sexy dress. Casually lounging on a white floor in a room with white walls is the sexiest way I know how to look in a super hot dress. Her facial expression is slightly confused and not alluring in the least bit, but that is what makes it so sexy, no? Her hair is also perfectly coiffed without a single hair out of place. Even if she didn’t look too endearing, she is looking so sexy lying on that white floor. You go girl!

Absolutely none of these quotes relate to the photos they are paired with. That last one I found on, so it is slightly different from the others, but the text did not relate to the picture in any way, so I had to share it. I think all pictures like this are a little ridiculous, and it makes me wonder if people take these seriously. Someone out there is creating them, so the answer is quite obviously yes. Yikes.

Have a great rest of your week, and thanks for reading :)

I Got Lost

This week, I am going to start out with a joke. Knock knock. Who’s there? Bekah. Bekah who? Bekah the stupid freshmen who decided to go for a wog (walk/jog) and got lost for an hour and a half and missed class.

So that was my morning yesterday! I decided to wake up and get some exercise. I don’t like going to the gym because I feel awkward and out of place, but I don’t mind exercising outside occasionally. I usually wog (walk/jog, a term I coined myself) for about half an hour and then call it a day. My roommate Ashni went on a run earlier in the week and told me a route she took that sounded good to me. I would wog for half an hour and then make it back in plenty of time to shower and go to my eleven o’clock class. I started off at 9:45 going the way she said (or so I thought), turning right at the stoplight she had described to me. After a while, I ended up on Michigan Street. I wasn’t exactly sure where I was, but I continued up the road for a while then decided to turn right onto a side street. I have only been in Indianapolis for one month now, and I already struggle with the most direct route to get somewhere, so you already know this is going to be a trip. I turned onto 54th street just because it was there and looked like a good street to turn on. I continued down and ended up in a neighborhood, Kessler Court or something like that. I ran around there for a little while, trying to find a way out. Then I came upon Kessler Street, which actually sounded familiar to me! I got excited and turned left. I had given up on jogging by now and just went for the walking portion of my wog. I went for a little while down Kessler then saw a sign for Michigan Street, which was exactly where I came from. I turned back around and started walking in the opposite direction. Finally I came upon two construction workers digging holes in someone’s yard. I asked for directions and they told me to continue as I was going until I ran into Illinois Street.

I had originally planned on making it back by 10:20 to shower and get ready for class, but at this point I had eliminated the plan to shower because it was 10:20. I continued down Kessler Street for a really long time, asking myself why I didn’t bring my phone. I know why, it is because I didn’t want to have to carry that, plus my iPod and keys, and I am dumb and thought it was a good idea to leave it behind. Anyway, I continued down Kessler until I finally saw Illinois. I turned on Illinois and started going for about half a mile. I saw a precious old lady in her yard gardening and I asked her for directions. She said to just keep going and I would run into shops and things where I could ask for more directions. She wasn’t much help, but she and I chatted about her son for a little bit, so I think she enjoyed my visit. I kept going on Illinois until I came across a bridge leading to the canal. By now I knew exactly where I was because my unit had walked this way a few weeks ago to get to the Flying Cupcake, which was just up the street. I knew from where I was that I still had 1.7 miles to go. Ahhgg. It was 11:00 by now so I obviously was missing class. I walked along the canal and made it back to my dorm safely. Along the way I did contemplate asking someone for a ride, but the idea freaked me out quite a bit. Although I missed class and was trekking all about the surrounding area, I did indeed learn one very important lesson from this experience: No one should ever exercise. Ever. Happy Friday and thanks for reading :)

Joke of the Week: What did the buffalo say to his son when he left for college? Bison.

Also, here is me and Ahsni’s pick up line, quote, and joke board today!

My Roommate!

Happy Friday everyone! For this post, I decided I am going to talk about my lovely roommate, Ashni. Like most incoming freshmen, I was very nervous before starting school here. One of the things I was most nervous about was who my roommate would be. I decided to have my roommate randomly chosen for me, so I was a little anxious to find out who I would be paired with. Would we get along? Would she stay up super late or get up super early and cause all kinds of ruckus?! Thankfully, my roommate and I get along swimmingly!

Our daily pick up line, quote, and joke.

Ashni and I have become great friends these past few weeks and we hang out together a lot. We are often rather goofy, but it is always a great time. We speak in British accents on a regular basis (so often that we had to restrict ourselves from doing it for several days). We also have a daily pick up line, a daily quote, and a daily joke we write on the board outside our room. Basically, we think we are hilarious all of the time, and that’s mostly because we are :) Ashni is Indian and knows how to do henna tattoos and she dishes them out like it’s her job. I also went home with her over Labor Day weekend and we ate a bunch of Indian food. We had dhar bhat and it was delicious! I had never had Indian food before so it was a good time. I would say I definitely lucked out as far as roommates go.
