Jared from Subway

Urban Dictionary Word of the Day:
Ridic-Short for "ridiculous". 

Why? Well, Friday I was simply trying to wear some jeans since I surprisingly have not done that in a long time. Scary right? Long story short, I found out my jeans, practically all of them, are way too big now. Even dah skinny jeans man! Its kinda awesome.Makes me feel so accomplished, at least in that aspect. 
I had this Jared from Subway moment; remember the commercials? This man named Jared lost all this weight by eating Subway and changing other aspects in his life and then to prove it, he holds up a pair of pants he used to wear to show the significant amount of weight lost.
I mean what?! I could not believe it! People told me a lost a lot, and yeah I noticed changes. But hot-damn! Okay, I just felt that I had to share that with the world. Yay ME! If nothing else, this strongly encourages me to keep it up! I mean look! I bought these very skinny jeans only one year ago, last May in fact. I am now two pant sizes smaller than this now. God Bless America. Man! 
::Pats self on back:: 
Now, I have the greatest excuse in the world: I can't fit my clothes anymore! I HAVE to go shopping!:D

Grinds My Gears

Urban Dictionary Word of the day:
Frottage-To induce sexual pleasure by applying one's body to another...
That may be a little inappropriate for most but hey, this is the world that we live in now and I will explain why I chose this word.

You know what grinds my gears? (A Peter Griffin of Family Guy once said...) Trojan commercials. I mean really? If you're going to actually have the literal balls to make and distribute commercials to networks on T.V. , at least don't make them sooo unbearably corny. Like there are just too painful to watch or to take seriously. They are just terrible. You've seen them right? When I saw the first one, I was shocked they even made a campaign for it at all. Why was the husband to be so excited that she got like 4 vibrators? I don't mean that in a "Really, you don't know why?" kinda way. Its just that he was SUPER excited. Now there is this new one. For the amazing new Twister. Check it out the new Ridiculously Corny Vibrator Commercial if you haven't already seen it.
While the world is at it, why don't we make more corny commercials? Maybe about adult diapers or more descriptive commercials about the female menstrual cycle. Or what happens when you used protection (maybe it was actually a Trojan) but you may be pregnant anyway. Or maybe we could market to the elderly about fun ways to not make having a catheter seem so bad.(Maybe add some cool stickers to the bag or slap on some glitter.) There are somethings just do no need commercials because its either too inappropriate or a too delicate type of information to slap on T.V.
Thus, God invented pamphlets. And annoying internet ads.
Even if there were something awkward someone wanted to market, there are better ways of approaching it. I look at commercials with a pretty large interest and I can sort of imagine how I would have done it given the chance. I cannot wait to start taking my classes in advertising. Someday I will change the face of advertising!! (Play heroic music here.) Or something.Maybe I can get rid of those made-for-T.V. product commercials. Why does something always have to be $19.95, $29.95 or $39.95 and presented with the same old female voice over for it to be considered something worth selling when its really a piece of junk? Topsy Turvy Tomato Grower thing? What's wrong with the traditional way? Or the shoe organizer you slide under your bed for optimum space efficiency? (I have one, it sucks.)
Why can't we have less junk commercials? They grind my gears. :/


Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

The Little Things

Urban Dictionary Word of the Day: 
Hyphy- Stupid, silly, drunk, high, and just generally out of hand. 

This felt like a good word. Now, I've never approved of motorcycles that much because it looks so dangerous our there are just too many cliches of bikers/biker gangs that never allowed me to take it seriously. But with some coaxing, I did it, I got on a motorcycle. Dear Buddha was it terrifying. Terrifyingly awesome!! That's why hyphy felt like a good word, it was such an exhilarating feeling once I stopped screaming and forcing my eyes shut. It flipped my stomach with that anticipating fear of being on a roller-coaster and get the tingling feeling of being tickled. Does that odd description make sense? Anyhoo, it was awesome! 
Oh look, some inspirations....
You know, I wanna travel the world. More than anything, I want to get out of my town. Maybe being away again would make everything feel less sucky. Among so many other things, I am learning that inspirations are beautiful things. They make you feel like you can do anything; like if you reach for the stars, maybe just maybe, you'll actually touch them. So I am trying to figure out a lot in my life; what to do, where to go, who to be, what to look like, who to trust...but who isn't? These are things we all seek it seems, each situation is only distinguished with our own personal hand prints. I just ask the world to be careful while everyone tries to figure out the answers to these questions. The Golden Rule feels like it means a lot less than it used to. 
So I'm going to try to zoom, zoom to be something amazing. 
Watch out, world. 
Man did that sound like a diary passage or what? Ick.

The Cliches of Life

For starters, the word of the day is:
Emocentric: A combination of "emo" and "egocentric". Having the feeling that no one is suffering quite as much as you are. 

Even its a tad 'emo' to start a post with, it was too relatable to pass up I guess. For each post, I wanna try to incorporate words of the day from my beautiful urban dictionary that actually relate.

People ask me all the time how I am. I've grown to hate this question among many others because I feel that its lost its meaning. So when asked, I ask if they really want to know. There are so many words that we use in vain these days. I guess I have a new word to use when asked now, 'cept I'd have to explain what it meant and that's a whole 'nother sob-story in itself.

Let's make this a little less slash-wrist...
This is purely for realization purposes, not to sound dumpy, which people say I have a knack at. I find there are a lot of cliches/over used expressions in our lives. People use them all the time:
  • "It will get better over time."
  • "You'll get over it."
  • "You'll understand when you're older."
  • "Everything happens for a reason." 
  • "Blah blah insert annoying cliche/expression here blah."
I wanna make some new cliche sayings that no one would ever think of because they would be just that weird or outlandish. I love saying outlandish things! I believe that I can actually be a funny person, purely out of wit and sarcasm. Any sarcastic person can hang with me, and I love it. Maybe I'll things like:
  • "Well isn't that a Shepard Punch right in the face?" (A certain someone wold get that and/or Mass Effect players.)
  • "Everything happens because of Buddha."
  • "It'll get better when Chuck Norris makes it better."
  • I dunno, silly things!
Because honestly, hearing something silly instead of something over used and meaningless would make most feel better, no? For isn't 'laughter the best medicine'? That's what I need, I need a good holding-your-side-cannot-breathe-about-to-pee-your-pants-type of laugh at least once a day. Don't we all? We could all use a good laugh. Even though its draining to feel like your world is totally over before you even step out of bed, feeling entirely hopeless, disposed of, or whatever negativity you're feeling is way too easy. It's so much harder to crack a smile when you think you'll never laugh again than it is to shed a tear instead. Therefore, finding something that makes you explode into laughter is totally worth it; even if we have to go looking for it.

Thankfully, I have someone right next door to my room who makes me do that every time I see him. I swear, if he wasn't there to make me literally fall to the floor from laughing, I'd be a lot worse off than I already feel I am. 
So, today's lesson: Laugh. 
Or at least try to, even if it's a little.

An intro, shall we?

Oh boy!
There is so much that I want to do, especially to occupy myself these days.
I began blogging solely to document my time in Japan, which as many know, meant the world to me. Sadly though, long story short, it was cut short. I actually have a few more posts that I wanted to put out there for that blog. But honestly could not bring myself to do it for I stated that I would not write anything on the blog in fear that it would be highly depressing and negative. Two things that I have been since the events. Its been a rough 2011 to the point where I can say I hate it. You hear that 2011? I hate you.
Anyway, I plan on updating my Japan blog (even though its months overdue) because I finally feel like I can without sounding too down about it. Honestly, I've had worse way too soon after anyhow.

So, what is this blog? As discussed with my sister, I plan it to be fashion, inspirations, realizations, obsessions, urban words of the day...its all up in the air really. But isn't life?
We shall see where this goes.
Also, you can also find me on Facebook (though I am weening myself off of that depressing social-epidemic). I think there are studies on how FB depresses people... I am also on Figment (great site) so please check out my stories, especially if you know what its like to have your heart squatted on by ones you loved. (Too much?) And of course, I'm here!
Please, please, please, do not be afraid to applaud. :D
