I’ve started watching Game of Thrones because we upgraded our internet speed and I can now actually watch shit without it interrupting, etc.
I’m pretty hooked and now that I think about it, I’ve spent 13 hours in the past week watching all of season 1, and 3 episodes thus far of season 2. It’s really good, and I think I’m actually going to read the books in the future. (Just started reading the Matched series by Ally Condie, and there’s still some others ahead on the list.)
However, I must say I absolutely love Daenerys Targaryen. And the word Khaleesi. I keep repeating it in my head throughout the day. Quite sad Khal Drogo died though, I really liked him after she was like hey, let me fuck you instead of you raping me every night. Also, I KNEW she was going to hatch those fucking dragon eggs. They kept panning over them in season 1.
My friend Krista was right though, NO ONE IS SAFE. FREAKING LORD STARK!? They killed Lord Stark! I couldn’t believe it. He was a main character, I wasn’t expecting it, though the tension was certainly there throughout all of season 1.
Also fucking L.O.L. at Theon Greyjoy fondling his sister. I’ve witnessed a lot of incest in the past week in movies/tv shows (Flowers in the Attic, Django Unchained, Game of Thrones) and I continue to find it both amusing and intriguing. I love how in the next episode he yells at her like YOU LET ME TOUCH YOU! And she’s all yup, I did.
And then Renly Baratheon and Maergery Tyrell’s relationship – LOLLLLLL. “Do you want my brother to come in and help?” I laughed. She’s totally okay with him being gay/bisexual and having her brother warm up his dick. That is bloody fantastic.

Be the first to condemn
An excellent quote from my favorite musical, Rent. I’ve got various New Year’s resolutions that I’m keeping up with. Perhaps one that I didn’t formally declare to myself is to be more loving and open and understanding of people and not judge them at face value.
It’s not that I can’t comprehend or understand why people would be quick to judge others, because I have been one of those people. It’s easier to point out others flaws rather than look at your own and work on yourself and your problems.
However, it is worthy to note that when we make judgments on people, we do not know everything about that person or what that person is going through. And just because they choose to share varying degrees of information about their life or parts of their lives, does not at all mean that we as viewers know the full of story or should we ever assume that we do. Most people choose to share just a tip of the iceberg of their lives with others. Whether it be publicly, such as a blog like this, or privately and intimately with their friends and family.
To assume we know better than that person is false. While the actual idea of knowing better than them could very well be true, we are judging subjectively. We can never know a person unless we are that person. Even the most open of people still has secrets or parts they wish not to share with others. So while we may very well be better versed in varying parts of life than others, it does not mean others wish to bypass learning the lesson themselves.
Just because we can give advice, doesn’t mean we should. Unsolicited advice, especially when it comes in the form of criticism (constructive or not [I personally think “constructive” criticism is fucking bullshit]) is nearly never accepted well. Sure, it can make a person look at whatever situation they’re in objectively. But it can also ignite a firestorm that’ll burn many around them should they get too close during the heat. People don’t like to hear “the truth” or other people’s view points on their lives. It’s a fact of life. And who are we to give it to them? Everyone is here to learn their own lessons and their own pace, not be chided by their peers for making mistakes.
So before you decide to be someone’s “wake up call” maybe you should step back and think about whether that person is already aware of their problems and is working on fixing them.
I just spent today and yesterday with my biffle Alyza on our much anticipated and planned 2 day biffle date. I hadn’t seen her in a long time so I was QUITE excited to spend time with her. Plus her bday’s coming up in a few days and I had a giant bag of xmas/bday presents to give her, so like, extra excited. I love giving gifts.
Anyway, yesterday we shopped even though the roads were shitty and several stores at my local mall were closed. Then we came home and did stupid stuff like put fake eyelashes on and make a PodBot video cause we haven’t made one since MARCH this past year – wtf!?
Today we tried to take my laptop apart and failed. We ordered chinese food and then we spent the rest of the day making paintings for each other. It was relaxing and fun and it’s times like these that I wish we lived closer. I mean obviously we still live close – we’re not states apart like my other 2 best friends are. But it takes some determination and about a quarter tank of gas. But it’s worth it.
It’s been a good start to my mini week-long vacation.
Christmas and New Year’s has gone and past and we’re already going into the third day of the year. What the actual fuck? Time is flying and I can’t grasp it any longer.
The year may have just started out, but I’m already fully engrossed in it and the winding road it appears to have started taking.
I finished off my root canal procedure today so I’m hyped up on painkillers and penicillin. I showered and decided to not style my hair and just let it be curly, so it’s absolutely fucking insane poofy. Like, hello 1986, come and get your crazy hair back, thanks.
I’m whirlwinding down a “lovelife” road that I’m not sure about. I don’t know if I want to go down this road or not and I feel like I’m standing at a fork and I’m not sure which road I’ll regret not taking more. It’s a hard decision and I’m trying to make it as best as I can. But I also realize that it’s okay to make mistake and it’s okay to say no whenever I want to. Idk. Life is hard. It shouldn’t be this complicated, but it is. Because we make it this complicated.
Also, I’ve had the same American Eagle webpage open for like 36 hours trying to decide whether I want to purchase these hoodies or not. THE STRUGGLE IS SO REAL RIGHT NOW. Like do I really need more hoodies or am I just being greedy? Uuuuuughhhh.
