I've realized that I haven't been online as much lately. No thanks to me not actively having internet for about a week and a half and that I've been working and writing up a storm. Or at least attempting to when I'm not currently obsessively watching the Walking Dead. I'm telling you, if you haven't watched this show and you like zombies, WATCH THIS SHOW! Seriously. I am hooked and the ironic thing is that I'm not even into zombies that much. But I love the Walking Dead!
Alright, as awesome and amazing the Walking Dead is, that is not what I came to post about today. A few things to point out:
The world didn't end. Wow. No surprise there. Guess what I did yesterday? I woke up, ate breakfast, showered, cleaned the house, wrote a little bit, watched some Walking Dead, wrote some more, and made cookies with some friends. Yep. A typical day for me on a typical day of the month. No zombies, no explosions, no nothing. Yay. We're all still alive. Everyone can calm the heck down now.
There is a windstorm going on outside my house. Just thought I would share that too.
Now moving onto some other things that I would like to point out.
Sometimes there are people in life that you have to say GTFO to. (For those who are not up on hip language, GTFO=Get the F*ck Out) Like seriously. I don't intend this blog to be rambly but I just want to be real for minute.
*Warning. This blog post may contain some really colorful words.*
Not sure if it's just me but lately I've run into some real assholes and I'm like what the hell? This is how things work for me: if you're nice to me, I'm nice to you. Yes, it's really that easy and yes, it's not freaking rocket science. Now if you're one of those people who sits up on a freaking pedastal like you're the best damn thing to happen to the world I am going to say this to you:
I don't have a tolerance for rude and selfish people. Period. I don't care who you are, you're rude once to me, its done. It's over. Don't think being nice to me later is going to get you anywhere.
Where is this all stemming from? Allow me to explain. There was a day in my past, okay actually a lot of days, when I was younger when there were people who said to me I was never going to be anything. They mocked me, made fun of me, and yeah, well I'm sure you get the picture. Now its years later and suddenly, these said people are all about being friends with me.
I really like how karma works because I sit back and I laugh. It's honestly really enlightening to watch how some people come out of the woodwork once you've claimed success for yourself. Honestly, I am sitting here in disbelief that they expect me to just act like we're buddy buddy. No. We are not friends nor will we be.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm all about making new friends and meeting new people but follow the golden rule: treat others how you want to be treated. Now for my input on that rule: follow it and also wait for karma to come back and get those people who said you couldn't do it. Seriously, just plaster that smile on your face no matter how hard it may seem and one day you'll prove them wrong.
Now I'm probably going to get a little inspirational on here but as corny as it sounds, its true. Follow your dreams, trust your heart, but keep your head because your head is logical. Despite what people may tell you, you can do it. Be like Harry Potter (who is freaking awesome and if you don't like Harry Potter, we might not be able to be friends.) and be a force of good in the face of adversity. Fight for the things you want and never, ever, ever (as Taylor Swift would sing) give up. There is nothing worth throwing your dreams away for.
Okay, my sappy inspirational speech is over. The ones who've been there from the start are the ones who are going to be there at the end. Trust me. I know. So when people want to be assholes, just tell them:
GTFO. (Well, in more or less words.)

Alsooooooo! Chosen is underway and I can't wait to really get this one written. I've had to go back a few times to re-write some chapters because I'm OCD like that but it only makes the chapters better. Alright, now I am off going to go eat some food, write some more, and still write some more. Also I am going to put socks on because my feet are cold.
