Who are you to Criticize anyway?

    "Dedicated to anyone who wonders if I'm writing about them...I am."

     Hello reader. Oh, was my introduction a little "formal" for you? A little "cold shoulder"? Good. My topic is a little cold tonight and perhaps it'll make you uncomfortable. .and maybe cry..fantastic. Grab a tissue and put your damn purse down, it's time to end this tea party.

    Judgments..criticism; is my topic today. Why the HELL are we all so judgmental of each other. .hell, why are we so judgmental of judgments? This whole crazy thought train came about when I first started to dye me hair "crazy" colors. The train then derailed after I just recently dyed it (for the last time) back to a dark-half-human color. Seeing comments like "so much better than that bright red.." or "that green hair HAD to go..". Comments such as those truly make me want to say.."Thanks for the feedback I could really care less about, and you may go fuck yourself on the way out, good sir.." Sounds harsh, but honestly, if you've known me for a good portion of my life, you'd know I don't do anything to PLEASE anyone..and I'll dye my hair, wear fake eyelashes, pierce my face in any way I choose.

    This also goes WAY BACK. I'VE gotten criticism my whole life for how I CHOOSE to look. "Oh you're so beautiful but that hair needs to go..".."why would pierce that beautiful face".."you're so beautiful BUT you should loose weight".etc. what's with all the "You're so beautiful BUT..". I'm quite sure I'm not alone in this, but when you start a compliment with you're beautiful BUT, IT IMMEDIATELY looses all sincerity.

    With that all being said, I'm no angel. My past is filled with jealous judgments and criticism. But, if you were to know me NOW, you'd know I DO NOT judge anyone, EVER. Scouts honor. These days, you're judged if your fat, skinny, bald, too much hair, clothes..and the list goes on. It's fine to be ANY of those things. If you want to be the nicest person earth, you go girl. You want to be get your hate on (good luck with your life without a soul. .Ok I judged haha). You want to be big. .great! You want to be skeletor..fine! You enjoy being someplace in the middle..fucking celebrate!!!
    At the end of the damn day..who really gives a hoot?!! I know I don't. We should probably all stop hating on each other(unless your into I said). Life is so GOD DAMN short, do/wear/feel whatever the fuck you want to do..let ya freak flag fly. And in case you need a break from our criticizing society. .let's grab a drink so I can tell you exactly this: who gives a shot about anyone thinks? When you're on your death bed your sure as hell not going to be thinking "god I wish I cared more about what people thought", NO, your going to thank your god that you did whatever was best for YOU. Take care, freaks.

Love, Laura xoxo

Ps: Deal with all the swearing..but this is a passionate subject..sorry, I'm not sorry!

I kept it light, so why am in the dark?

Good evening!

Why is it that I always get my zest for blogging, late at night? Well..I guess its only 9:30pm...not THAT Late! ANYWAYS, that's neither here nor topic! I was inspired to write about a few friends "dating" experiences..trials, tribulations...losers...douchebags, etc. So my question is, (you can thank Carrie Bradshaw for this..) "When we try to keep it light, why do we always end up in the Dark?"

Basically this means, in terms of dating, you try to keep things casual/see where it'll go and not read into somehow always land in murky water.  By this I mean, after all the skinned knees and broken hearts, you go into the next one with that typical attitude "I'm not taking anything too seriously" or "lets just see what happens". BUT at the end of the day your 30 years young, after all, and are looking for real love!

Dating is so awkward..I feel that Vince Vaughn said it best via 'Wedding Crashers':
I apologize to you if I don't seem real eager to jump into a forced awkward intimate situation that people like to call dating. I don't like the feeling. You're sitting there, you're wondering do I have food on my face, am I eating, am I talking too much, are they talking enough, am I interested I'm not really interested, should I play like I'm interested but I'm not that interested but I think she might be interested but do I want to be interested but now she's not interested? So all of the sudden I'm getting, I'm starting to get interested... And when am I supposed to kiss her? Do I have to wait for the door cause then it's awkward, it's like well goodnight. Do you do like that ass-out hug? Where you like, you hug each other like this and your ass sticks out cause you're trying not to get too close or do you just go right in and kiss them on the lips or don't kiss them at all? It's very difficult trying to read the situation. And all the while you're just really wondering are we gonna get hopped up enough to make some bad decisions? Perhaps play a little game called "just the tip". Just for a second, just to see how it feels. Or, ouch, ouch you're on my hair.
 I really cannot sum it up any better than that (I seriously LOL'd as I was reading that..).  The point is, date after date..the more serious it gets or the more you see that person, the more questions you have. Is there a future? Do they see a future? Am I crazy pants for even thinking that, this early in the game? I am getting on in my years, so maybe I should broach the subject?? Ah the newness of a relationship is bitter sweet. You meet someone new, and its fun, harmless puppy-love. You both get to start with a fresh new slate. The bitter taste comes with all the questions.

In some cases your questions are quickly answered when said dater, turns into a complete crazy or a douchbag. In the experience of some friends, there is NO time to waste so they STRAIGHT up ask if this person is interested in doing the "Boyfriend/Girlfriend" thing, which I'll admit is risky (even as I am egging them on to do it...YOLO) but it also clears the air of any questions or confusion OR misread signs your being given...or imagining. An inconvenient truth is what that is. Sure you have a little bit of awkwardness after, but I say "shoot em all and let god sort em' out". Although that doesn't really pertain to this situation, but what I mean is...might as well find out now, rather than torturing yourself with the "is he interested", "is she going to let me sleep with her tonight?", etc.

I guess the reason why we always wind up in the dark, is because there is always one party who wants more than the some cases. So you say to yourself, OK, this time I'm just going to see where it is and not fall in love after the first date. But old habits die hard I suppose and there you are !BOOM!, lights out! Now you can't see and you have bumped your shin on the the coffee table..perfect.  To wrap it up reader, Do what you gotta sucks...that why people get married; to end that horrifying awkward line-dancing tradition.

Love, Laura xoxox
