I was reading a hilarious article not too long ago about bad neighbors. It got me to thinking about my own experiences. For the most part, my experiences have been good. I can only recall one neighbor that I didn’t necessarily care for and it was when I moved into my first apartment while in college.
Does anyone remember how big Guitar Hero and Rock Band was when it first came out? Well, this neighbor of mine loved to play Guitar Hero or Rock Band several times a week late at night. If you’ve ever played Guitar Hero or Rock Band, then you know just how loud those games are and can be! The man had no shame which is why I and the rest of my neighbors had no shame reporting him. 🙃
If you want a good laugh, click on the Instagram link I’m about to share. This clip perfectly illustrates my pain during that time whenever I was trying to sleep. He finally settled down after almost two weeks of us complaining. I can laugh about it now. Back then, I was fuming. ROTFLMBO! Click here and make sure your sound is on. SMH…😂😂😂
Until next time…
Good evening to all! I know it’s been a few days since I last posted, but I’m back now. I’m ready to hit you with one of my shortest posts ever. Can you believe that?! Let’s do this!
I was asked if I had any fears as a writer or when it comes to writing. If I had any fears, I had to make an Instagram post about it. As you can see below, I only have one. As long as I can write, everything is alright.
Until next time…
The media, specifically social media has distorted the minds of many individuals regarding beauty and self image. It has single-handedly caused millions of women and men to find unsubstantiated flaws within themselves and others. Due to the media’s idealistic views regarding beauty and body image, millions of women and men all across the world struggle with identity issues each and every day. Even worse, millions of adolescent girls and boys struggle with self esteem issues due to the countless unrealistic ads that are thrust in their face on a daily basis. The majority of these ads (whether they are on television or in print form) include individuals who are heavily photo shopped or laced in makeup. If you ask me, that is a far cry from being real or authentic. Still, many fail to see that basic truth and they would rather base their thoughts and views on what the media deems as beautiful or acceptable.
As a society, we put too much stock into what the media considers as beautiful and which body types it hails as acceptable. Why do you think so many people including celebrities are rushing to get themselves filled with silicone, plastic or to have their face and bodies tucked and/or stretched? It is because they too are victims of the media and its mentality of what is beautiful and acceptable. The MEDIA KINGS know that society as a whole is very insecure and they know that society as a whole can easily be manipulated by the things they see. One thing is for sure, the plastic surgeons are not complaining.
Instead of trying to look like this person or act like the next person, why not accept yourself for who you are? Do not allow yourself to be warped by social media and its false standards of beauty and acceptance. You will never be happy if you do. Whether you are short or tall, big or small, find beauty within yourself and accept the person that YOU are. Beauty is not defined by one’s race, bone structure or body type. Beauty is defined by individuality and confidence and when you have that, no one not even the power of social media can come close to touching you.
Until next time…
