There's so much more to being a nice person than just saying a few nice things and smiling a lot. I know that there's still a lot for me to learn about life. People tell me to shut up all the time and I just shut up. There's a lot I have to take from older people. But I have to just take it. It's not my choice. Sometimes my siblings will scold me for stuff and I don't like it, but i'm supposed to just take it, and be rational. I'm not going to judge a person by their first impression. I know what my intentions are, so I'm not going to toy with people's feelings and make them feel alienated from their own friends. If i'm in my house with my friends, sure, I behave however I want. But, around other people, obviously I can't because I don't know them that well. And it's that simple. But, I can get to know them and eventually be as comfortable around them. It's time that I would have to be willing to take. Effort that I have to be willing to put in. It's true that I choose my friends. But if I like to be around lots of people and subject myself, then that's not the case anymore. I feel that being superficial isn't just about looks and glamor. You can tell someone's motivation by the way they behave. There're people who're sincere, and there're people who just want to be there for the happy moments. When you've been hit bad and don't know what to do and don't know what to expect, you need someone to who'll take control of the situation for you, and make all the necessary calls and negotiations that you're in no condition to handle yourself. Where are your hundreds of facebook friends then? I don't know what it is about some people and getting so much attention. It's a really strange twisted narcissism. I guess this is what blogging is. It's funny -- i tried so much to separate those I hate, but i might possibly be exactly that.

You can't walk through life just being a socialite. Knowing people and attending parties doesn't actually mean you have a real friendship with them. When you start anywhere you want to embrace the people around you. You try to take what you can from what they do, learn from it, and try it yourself. If you look at any successful woman you'll surely see that she didn't operate just within her job description in order to be promoted to such a high position. She obviously had to go above and beyond. Don't come to me throwing around names of people you know. It's not like you actually ever did anything for them. I don't care how many people you know, or how famous you are, I just want to know what you're trying to represent with all this behavior. It's ridiculous to watch a girl receive so much recognition and attention because of her existing fame and social status. There are work horses and show ponies. There are top ten percenters: the top 10% that end up doing 90% of the work and outperforming 90% of their peers. You don't necessarily need to be the smartest or have the best connections to be in this category, to be in this category you need to go above and beyond.When you start out anywhere you have  a rare opportunity to work closely with people who are extremely knowledgeable, hard working, and experienced and instead of using that to her advantage and learning from it she's choosing to stick her nose in the air. At the end of the day if you do well, it’s going to benefit the people you represent. Honestly, I would never wish for anyone to come back and fail, because that’s, one, more work for everyone else, and, two, it doesn’t make you look great and that reflects on everybody.You don't get places by JUST doing your job, you get places by building relationships and working above the job description. "I'm not here for that, I'm just here for this,". Well, you're here now. Is it my fault that you're here? It's not my problem if you can't handle it here, everyone else has enough to do already without having to hold your hand. Everyone else worked up the ranks; likely from producing exceptional work--not skating by with mediocre work. "So what if I didn't show up, everyone else skipped out the whole week,". Don't compare yourself to anyone but yourself. No matter how good or bad everyone else is doing, the only person you are competing against is with yourself. If you don't know who you are and what you want, I can't help you. Also, I have to go out and buy more wrapper. That day when I was shopping with my mom and siblings, we were supposed to get wrapper but I forgot. Read More »Post 40

Yesterday morning my mom watched Taken on starmovies. Ever since that movie whenever someone leaves she has to tell them not to get kidnapped and says that she won't be able to save them. Read More »Post 39
