Whenever my dad wants my sister or I to remember an incident in which we have done something he plans on punishing us for in the future (never happens), he says, “Write it in your books.”
I guess we are supposed to write it down, so that whenever we do get punished, (again - never) we can refer back to what we wrote and not act like we didn’t know it was coming.
I’m going to start using the hashtag #writeitinyourbooks whenever I make a positive affirmation. That way, hopefully y’all will write them all down & not act surprised when all of my dreams come to fruition.
my compression suit came in the mail today! just tried it on - shit is tight, but surprisingly comfy & I instantly saw the difference it made. y’all ain’t ready! this one is to sleep in. I’m going to order one to work out in, too.
now, some people have issues with women who use compression suits to shape their bodies. these issues will be addressed in the new blog =)
I’m really not picky about “looks” when it comes to dating. I will date a guy that isn’t “good-looking” to most people because we can’t help how God made us. I judge a man based on the shit he CAN control. If the man presents himself well (this is where his sense of personal style comes in), has excellent hygiene, and approaches me with respect, I will consider dating him.
My dad once told me this is ridiculous. He says I should date a man with all of the above things I listed, but also a man who is attractive. He says that if I date an “ugly” guy, I am sending the world a message saying “I have low self-esteem.” He was mainly referring to my 1st ex-boyfriend. He was right about him, though. Dude turned out to be a monster - in every sense of the word.
I only mention this because a man whom the phrase, “Damn! He’s fine!” doesn’t necessarily apply to, tried to give me his number today. I, of course, didn’t take it because I am on a dating fast until 2012 (another story for another day), but I just had the feeling he was just a good dude.
just randomly felt my tattoo (which I got in January)… and it is raised… so you know I had to consult the holy book of the innanets, Google, to diagnose myself. apparently, an already healed tattoo can swell & itch if there are sudden changes in the weather (check), you put too much lotion on it (possible check - I use a lot of lotion in general), it is exposed to sun for a long time (negative), if you’re allergic to the ink (i hope the hell I ain’t), or just have allergies (ding ding ding). I have allergies.
Self-diagnosing saves so much time & money. I am my own House, MD.
