Anger is One Letter Short of Danger

25 Jul

I’m not sure why, but I’ve been thinking a lot about anger lately. I don’t understand how or why one person’s anger can cause another person to get angry. Like if Alice is mad at Bella, then Bella gets angry at Alice  for being mad. Talk about circular logic! I really don’t get it.

I also don’t understand why people have to be angry at other people and only people. For instance, I wanted to go to the gym last night and I can only go with my dad’s guest pass. A few hours before we said we were gonna go, my dad invited my brother’s baseball coach and his son over for a swim. They’re really nice people and have been really good to my family, so when they were here past the time we said we would go, and then still here after the gym closed, I didn’t say anything. At one point my dad asked, “Are you mad?” and I honestly answered, “Yes, but not at you.” He looked at me puzzled and says, “Who are you mad at then?” I looked at him with the same puzzled expression and said, “Nobody, I’m just mad at the situation,” and he just didn’t understand how that was possible.

I feel like everybody looks for someone to blame, even when no one is at fault. Sometimes you have to take a step back and really look at the situation before pointing the finger and I guarantee you, you will save yourself a lot of time and wasted anger.

I’d also like to point out one of the responses I got on the poll this morning. I have started putting an “Other” option on the polls where you can fill in your own answer and on my “Do you like when I add pictures to my posts?” poll, one person wrote: “ur mums a whore and ur a slut“. My initial reaction was, that has absolutely nothing to do with pictures, which is sad but true. Then I thought about the fact that he used “ur” instead of your or you’re and I thought, he probably doesn’t know the difference, so he had to use “ur”, and there was no apostrophe in the word “mum’s”. How depressing! This person has nothing better to do with their lives but insult people on the internet, and he doesn’t even know how to spell said insults! I’ve also decided this person must be in lower high school or younger because the last time someone tried to hurt me by insulting my mum was like 9th grade. So well done random person, you gave me a jolly good laugh!

Let’s Get Physical!

24 Jul

As  I know I’ve mentioned like 6 billion times, I quit smoking a few months back – and there are tons of positive aspects of doing so: health benefits, saving money, smelling nicer, etc. However, there are also the downsides to quitting (yes, they exist),  such as: losing a vice/outlet for stress and the worst – gaining weight! 😯

Quitting smoking mixed with the stress of graduating caused a lot of junk food binges and just unhealthy eating to the point that in  5 months I gained a lot of weight, (this is sort of expected when you stop satisfying your oral fixation, you replace it with food). If that wasn’t bad enough, I am in a wedding in 2 months and therefore have a bridesmaid dress to fit into! (Yikes!) So, my goal is to lose 20 pounds before the wedding,by eating healthy and through exercise ! *fingers crossed*

Oh, the stress!!

In honor of my new healthy life style, I’ve decided to share my top 5 favorite songs to work out to, as well as the 5 runner ups… So really it’s my top 10… But, yeah. Counting down from 5:

5. Totally Fucked – This is a song from the musical Spring Awakening which is an amazing show! The song has a great beat to work out to! Check it out:

4. Georgia by Alex Day – I tend to write about this youtuber a lot because I think he’s absolutely brilliant. Here’s one of the songs off his latest albums:

3. I’m on a Boat by The Lonely Island – Another song with a great beat, and so funny too! This is a must-see video, so check it out if you haven’t already:

2. Another One Bites the Dust by Queen/Jonathan Groff – This song always gets me up and moving! I love it! Though, I have to admit, I tend to listen to the Glee version by Jonathan Groff more than the original… I’m a total Gleek!

1. And the number one work out song is: For You Entertainment by Adam Lambert – I have this on my playlist 4 times – it’s that good! Such a good beat, and a great voice… What’s not to love?

Quick Update (Before the Proper Post)

24 Jul

First,  I just want to say thank you so much to Jules for the new header! It came out so good and I am so grateful! I absolutely love it! Thanks!!

Now to address some questions: My hand is doing fine, still hurts a bit but less and less each day. I’ll be in the cast (did I mention it’s hot pink? :)) for at least 10 days, then a splint for a few months? Very strange healing process I guess!

The collaborative blog is coming together quite nicely, got the right number of people interested, just working out the kinks now! It’s all working out and right in time for me to start my new job!! Yes, I got the job!  Only a part time position, but still, I’m glad to have something! And there’s tons of room for advancement, so I’m really excited! 😀

That’s all for now, I’m working on a proper post that will either be out later today or tomorrow, with a lot of you tube videos so be prepared!

Poll Results 7/23/10

23 Jul

Hey guys, just a quick post about poll results! I was just curious about how people got  here/why they read my blog and these are the results. 17 people (exactly 50% of poll takers) found me on failblog, which is sort of what I expected. About 15% found me while researching job scams – I really thought this number would be higher considering the scams page is the 3rd most viewed page daily. There are four people who read my blog when they’re bored, which is as good of a reason as any, while  another 4 think I’m funny or entertaining – thanks guys!! One person reads because they agree with what I have to say, which is always good to hear! And one person doesn’t actually read the blog, they just like taking polls. I also added an “Other” category this week and got two responses there: one said they read because they fell in love, with the blog? With me? With the internet? I’m not sure. Another person reads because they think I’m hot, so thank you kind anonymous person who finds me attractive!

I usually try to have new polls up by noon (EST) but I woke up late, so the poll is late too… I’m actually putting up 2 this week, just because I can! So please keep voting (polling?) and I promise I will have an actual post some time this weekend!

Danni, the one hand wonder!!

19 Jul

Hey everyone! So, I actually broke my hand today and it is really painful for me to type, so I plan on taking a few days off of blogging and fail blog, etc. When I come back, I will give you a breakdown of survey responses (for instance, according to my survey 100% of my readers are men…)

Also, a few people have asked, I have not heard whether or not I got the job I’ve mentioned, but I did get a call back today. Unfortunately I spent most of the day in the hospital with my phone off, so I’m not entirely sure of the results… But they said I had a great interview so that’s a good sign…right?

Look! I was featured!

This has totally made my night!!

Why do you think…

18 Jul

…that I want this for myself? Don’t you think I want better? Don’t you think it would be easier for me if things were different? I’ve tried and tried, but nothing is ever good enough. Sometimes I feel it won’t happen for me because secretly I want to piss you off as much as you piss me off. Stop comparing me to other people because I’m not them!

BFFN – Best Friends For Now

18 Jul

For most of my life, I always thought there was nothing better than having a best friend that you share everything with! And for most of my life I’ve had one. But lately, I’ve come to realize that best friends are sort of rubbish. And what drives me absolutely mad is the phrase “BFF”, like omg!! Best friends forever! NO! How many people can honestly say they have had the same best friend for most of their life? Not many that I know! I think this all relates back to my trust issues as well as the fact that I have yet to have a best friend that hasn’t disappointed me immensely. Here are a few examples (names have been changed to protect identities):

Jasmine: This girl and I had been friends for 6 years and best friends for 3 of those years. She had a lot of problems with her family, her credit and could never find a job. She used to come to me with all her problems, and complain, or ask for advice and really depended on me, but I never burdened her the same way. To make money she used my ebay and paypal account, which I would occasionally use as well. A few months back I was going through a lot of shit, my parents were on my case, my sister was driving me crazy and my friends were all home for winter holiday, so I confided in her the way she often confided in me. It came back to me that she was spilling my personal information to random people, which is altogether not cool. I was kind of pissed, but got over it because after all, she was my best friend. Then one day I signed on to my paypal account (which I hadn’t used in 2 months) to discover that it had been over-withdrawn. I sent Jasmine a text, just asking what happened because this money now had to come out of my pocket. She told me she messed up once (which is a lie, this was at least the 10th time she’d done it) and that she no longer wanted to be friends with someone so needy. Uhh…what? Right…

Wendy: The incident with Jasmine was not the first, and that’s when I really began to get frustrated with the concept of best friends. I declared that I would never have an official “best friend” ever again. I was still at university and there was one girl that I would hang out with almost everyday, and we got on quite well. She would always ask me to just admit that she was my best friend, but I claimed that saying it would be a curse on our friendship. One night, we ran into some friends that she hadn’t met yet, and I slipped up and introduced her as “my best friend, Wendy.” She called me out on it later, saying it was official now that I’d said it, and I just let it happen. Not even four hours later, I walked in on her talking shit about me with one of our mutual friends. Real nice…

Those are just two among many examples of former “best friends” who have screwed me over. If you want to hear more I will gladly tell you! Also, nobody has taken the survey yet, so please please please take it! Thanks!
