Day 16: A photo of a celebrity you would love to have over for dinner
Johnny Depp. Sure, it’s probably obvious/cliche/etc, but I honestly find him fascinating and a bit eccentric, so it would be fun to have him over and see what sort of dinner chat we could come up with. I think it would be extremely entertaining.
Day 5: Someone you would switch lives with for a day and why
Forgot to do this one yesterday…
If I could switch lives with anyone, I’d want to be…Amanda Seyfried. She just seems like she’s totally awesome and she’s made a bunch of fun movies that I enjoy, so I’d want to see what her life was life. That works for me.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind having a few nips and tucks here and there, but nothing major. I’m not obsessed with looks or how other people see me, but there are a few things I would like to fix because they do kind of bother me.
However, I think people who are addicted to plastic surgery, or just do it because they’re insanely vain and want to look like a Barbie, need slapped. Seriously, how about spending your money on something more important or useful? Don’t be such a snob.
I like how I look, but the flaws I’d like fixed aren’t exactly noticeable on first glance because I keep them hidden. They’re not on my face; they’re elsewhere. I’m not a vain snob and I know I’ll probably never get surgery, but if given the chance, I’d probably take it, if only to ease my OCD/perfectionism about certain things.
Day 19: Do you think schools should give out free contraceptives?
Yeah, I do. Would any of the students use them? Probably not, ‘cause teenagers are dumb most of the time, but I’d like to think of they were given free contraceptives, they’d at least make an attempt to be smart. I mean, they’re FREE, so it’s not like you had to pay for them. At least have some intelligence and put them to the proper use.
Obviously, though, with shows like Teen Mom and Sixteen and Pregnant, a lot of girls think if they get knocked up, they can be on TV, too. It’s pretty pathetic. I know high schools probably try and teach the students about safe sex and all that, but it doesn’t seem to do any good. I know when I was in high school, they only preached abstinence or condoms. Didn’t really mention other options or get into any real details. Showing us a woman having a baby didn’t exactly help, either. Mostly because my health classes in 9th and 10th grade were 95% male students. The rest of us were females, but we pretty much felt out of place and awkward.
So, yeah, maybe if high schools made more of an effort, some students would become a bit more intelligent, but I doubt it. I still think they should give this stuff out, though. It’s not promoting having sex, it’s just showing that schools know teens are gonna do it and want them to try and be safe about it.
Day 4: What was the last movie you watched? Write about it.
Are we talking DVD or in the theater? If DVD, the last movie I watched was…*thinks for a moment* Red Riding Hood, but only because I was attempting to make a YouTube video, but got frustrated instead.
Red Riding Hood isn’t a bad movie, but it’s not exactly great, either. It was directed by Catherine Hardwicke, which should be your first clue as to what to expect. It’s very Twilight-ish in the way it was directed.
Amanda Seyfried and Shiloh Fernandez do the best with what they were given, as do Billy Burke and Gary Oldman. Those 4 were the main appeal to me. The actors were definitely the best part of the film. They made it more bearable, I guess you can say. It was better than Twilight, though. I will say that much.
If we’re talking in the theater, the last movie I saw was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. I don’t think I need to explain how awesome and depressing it was. These gifs sum it up:
People who use chatspeak instead of properly spelling a word
People who use chatspeak in actual conversations. Example: I worked at Toys R Us back in 2009 and this girl would come to my register and talk to me. She always said, “O-M-G” and “B-R-B” and other things like that. She always spelled it out, never spoke it. It annoyed me so much.
People who block aisles in the stores and don’t move, even when you’re polite and say, “Excuse me.”
People who walk insanely slow, as though they have all the time in the world. I despise being stuck behind them, especially when I can’t walk around them.
People who don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom. Like, seriously, you can’t take a moment out of your super busy day to be clean?
People who use the 20 items or less lane when they have a cartload of shit. I used to work at Walmart and when people did this, I turned them away, even though it made them mad. Too bad. Learn to read.
People who don’t cover their mouths when coughing
People that honk when stopped in front of a person’s house. Can you seriously not take two seconds to get out of your vehicle and go to their door? Ugh.
People who always argue and have to be right/have the last word. They need a punch in the face, especially when they’re wrong.
Day 2: Post your favorite song and write why you like it
Totally forgot I was doing another 30 day challenge. I’ll do days 2, 3, and 4 now, since I missed them(today is day 4).
My favorite song is probably…I have so many. I can’t really choose just one. But I think the one I like the most is…
Part Time Lover by Steve Wonder. I honestly don’t know why I like it so much, but I listen to it a lot. One, probably because Stevie is a legend, and two, because it’s from the 80’s and has a good beat you can dance to. Not that I dance.
Day 18: What is your take on people who self-harm(cutting, burning, scratching, etc)?
Honestly, there are some days when I get where they’re coming from. I mean, sure, there are probably some who do it because they think it’s cool and will get them attention. Those people are stupid and I think they need slapped. But the people who do it because they are depressed…I know how that feels.
I don’t do it and would never condone harming oneself, but at the same time, I feel if it makes them feel better/more content/less depressed, more power to them. Do I feel they should seek help elsewhere? Yeah, but it’s not my choice to make. If they want help, they’ll get it. If not, then that’s their decision.
Well, I suppose I can say that I was named after a Hustler magazine model. *nods* It was my mom’s decision, too.
My dad, if you wanna call him that, used to drive the garbage truck and would bring home brand new Hustlers/Playboys/Penthouses that some woman would throw out(I guess she didn’t like her husband having them or something). My mom would go through them, mostly for the articles, or so that’s what she’s told me. ;)
Anyway, she said that in one issue, there was a tall, beautiful redhead named Jasmine who was wearing a purple evening gown(I assume before she took it off for the rest of the spread she was doing). My mom immediately loved the name and knew she had to name one of her daughters that.
When she found out she was having twins, she kept it secret until the day the nurse came in to fill out the info for the birth certificates. The nurse asked my dad what the names of his two daughters were and he said, “Jennifer is one, but you’ll have to wait until she(my mom) wakes up to tell you the other one. She never told me.” Apparently when my dad found out, he freaked a little, but too bad for him. He never wanted daughters anyway.
Day 17: Have you experienced your 'first true love' yet? Do you believe you ever will?
Honestly, I don’t think I have and I probably never will. Then again, I don’t believe in true love, really. I think it’s just something made up. Romance and the like bore me to tears. Sure, there may be someone out there for everyone, but does it make them soulmates or true loves or whatever? Not really, no. That’s just fairytale crap.
Day 11: A photo of a band/artist that you like that aren't famous worldwide yet
Oh, gosh, I have no idea. Most of the bands/artists I listen to are pretty famous worldwide. But…I think I’m going to go with…All Time Low. I know they’re popular in Canada and the UK, but other than that, I don’t think they’re known worldwide. I dunno.
Day 16: What do you want to happen to your body when you die?
Well, considering the fact that bugs creep me out, I think I would like for my body to be cremated so that I don’t become food for disgusting critters and creepy crawlies. Sorry to disappoint them, but that’s just not how I roll. haha.
I don’t particularly care what happens with my ashes. It would be pretty cool to have them scattered somewhere random, like an amusement park, but I don’t really think that’s plausible. Then again, I could be wrong.
I dunno. I’m tired and can’t think right now. But I do know I don’t want to be buried when I die.
My best friend…her name is Becky and she is amazingly awesomesauce. We have so much fun together, sometimes a bit too much, but it’s all good. haha. Isn’t that the whole point of having a best friend?
She’s a total tomboy, like me, which definitely works out for the both of us. We have a lot of similar tastes, mostly with movies, and we’re always going to midnight showings of films because we can.
We also like to go to adult stores and freak out the customers out. We go to Walmart and read romance novels out loud to people walking past. We scare ourselves silly going to huanted attractions, or even driving through the woods at night. We’re completely insane; we usually act like we’re drunk when we’re out, even though we never are.
During the summer, we drive around, windows down, music blasting, and wave to random people ‘cause it’s amusing to see their faces. We also point at random people/things while stopped at red lights and act out different emotions. It’s hilarious.
Sure, we act like kids, but it’s fun, and that’s all that matters to me.
