My friend introduced me to this awesome blog http://www.manrepeller.com/ , by a super fly chick. When you’re hot shit like she is, who cares if you repel men.  I’d like to think that’s the reason I repel them… ?

Anywho, she posted this pic:

It got me to thinking….Others treat you differently based on how you are dressed. Even you treat yourself differently and interact differently based on how you are dressed. So dress the best you can. Don’t spend $400 on an Isabel Marant shirt but let your personality show in your clothes.

I envy hipsters with their ironic mustaches and cute overalls. Neither of those has ever looked good on me…. such is life, maybe one day I’ll stop waxing my mustache and bring out my overalls from the fifth grade…..

If you didn’t know how old you were….How old would you think you were?

aksfjaskljfa! Does this make sense?

Sometimes when I see “Age: 24” I’m SHOCKED! :$   I realize I’m not actually old, though my knee does pop out from time to time, but when did 24 happen?

I believe that how old you look has little to do with the way you physically look but more with your overall demeanor. Sure, you can meet someone and say 43, but when they share themselves with you, you think wow 25 and you can no longer see what made you think 43 (besides that bald spot) …. jokes :/  . Karma, please don’t give me a bald spot for having written that….

That being said, i would rather act 5 than 15, and I would rather be 24 than 15 because though I still constantly have verbal diarrhea…. oh fuck how’d that dumb shit come out of my mouth? …. I am more comfortable with myself and I am more in control of my decisions. The key to looking 20 at 27 (besides eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables!!!! SERIOUSLY, eat the fucking broccoli it’s the best thing for you) is to feel like you are five. Did you care what anyone thought about you when you were five. Nope! You probably danced anywhere you wanted and ran naked through fountains. Give yourself equal freedom now. Now that you can choose to eat ice cream for breakfast (but remember we’re trying to live to 140 so have oatmeal instead) choose to act the way you want to, not the way you perceive other people want you to. Because they probably don’t give a rat’s ass or even worse a rat’s tail…ew!

I originally started to write this because I really like this Rookiemag.com, it’s a magazine for teenagers and has a lot of great advice that I can still relate to. One of my favorite articles is about how some of the funniest ladies on the telly lost their virginity. I admire and appreciate their youthful honesty. Check it out here.

Crunch, crunch…avoid the Ranch.

UCLA did a study where college boys were asked to rate their preference of women’s body types. These boys were hungry… for food. Upon completing the task, they were given a sandwich. Then they were given more bodies to rate. It turns out, hungry males prefer fuller looking women; whereas, satiated hunger led these same men to choose more slender women. Moral of the story: NEVER FEED A MAN!!!

Jokes… but I do believe that most women struggle with weight, even really anno looking ones.

Anywho, I do believe that eating healthy and smart is important. I don’t normally like to share when I’m dieting mostly because I don’t think anyone cares. But I have found a great site for healthy eating!

The author has some great recipes. Her website is available here. Also, this is how we should eat ALL of the time, splurging once in a while.

A diamond is coal under pressure – my yoga gal

20120716-145017.jpg

There’s a wonderful girl in Long Beach who holds Yoga classes every Saturday and Sunday by the beach. Classes are free, but of course donations are included and well earned!

I absolutely adore her energy and teaching style, plus she always has all these really deep inspirational phrases to get you through the poses and life.

Though it may not seem so, Yoga is difficult! Today my back is sore and it feels so good! — That’s probably the point that Yoga like life can sometimes seem so easy to the outside but to the individual doing each pose, going through each motion there’s a bit more going on.

Anyway, I love this picture! Remember if you’re going through something difficult a diamond is coal under pressure; you’re on your way to becoming a diamond.

-Namaste

Why on earth would you ask me that?

Stupid interview questions I’ve had to answer this month:

1. Why do you want this job? –Because I need the mo-nay mo-nay

2. Sell yourself to me? — I think that’s illegal in ALL 50 states :/

3. Why this company? –Because, because yes

4. Define success. — Not having to answer bullshit interview questions

Anyway, I got the job. I’m pretty stoked. That’s a lie I’m super stoked, but SO nervous! I want to run around the room screaming like my 12 year olds did in Spain. I don’t think it’s acceptable for me though….

Enjoy your marshmallows

It’s hard to believe it but I only have two months and a half left in Seville, Spain. I’m only just now starting to feel settled with my life here. I realize that I should take it all in and enjoy the moment but it’s just so difficult to not think of the future. Since childhood, this “think ahead” ideology has been engraved in my mind.

A popular  psychology study involves placing a marshmallow in front of a child, telling him or her that he/she can eat the marshmallow immediately or wait 15 minutes and then have two marshmallows. It’s a huge struggle for the child http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EjJsPylEOY . However these children were interviewed years later and the children who waited to eat the marshmallow at a young age were more successful, healthier individuals in their adulthood. Were these individuals happy with all of their success or were they always thinking of the future. Was the present marred by the future for them?

Don’t get me wrong the future is super important but once we’ve learned to wait for the second marshmallow is it possible to enjoy the time in between?
