I don’t go on Facebook very often. I have it logged in on my phone so that I can wish people “Happy Birthday” on their birthdays if I don’t see them in person or receive messages if anyone wanted to contact me and has no other means of contact. Yet those moments when I go on, I often see friends or “friends” who post pictures of themselves in sexy outfits and/or their nights at the clubs. All the time I see these comments, “You look gorgeous!!!”, “Dayyyuumm”, “Beautiful!”, “OMG I’m so jealous!”, etc. However when I look at these photos, I just tilt my head in confusion. Most of the time I don’t see this extremely beautiful and gorgeous girl that they talking about it. Maybe I’m just a jerk for saying this, but honestly I don’t. It’s good that they are helping the person to feel about themselves as they truly do feel that this girl is drop-dead gorgeous. So I choose to remain silent so that I’m not the jerk that brings about negativity.
Maybe I’m just a tough critic. The more I thought about it, I thought maybe it’s just values. I don’t see a tight-fitting outfit as amazing. I just see it as another outfit that can look good depending on the body-type with the right patterning and colors chosen with the all the jackets or accessories. In the past, I have said that some people with these sexy outfits look great. It’s not that I haven’t. I am a person who understands fashion, but I admit, a few certain styles in fashion. That maybe I can’t just appreciate these tight-fitting sexy outfits.
If the case is that as long as the girl does make-up and wears sexy outfits that deems her as drop-dead gorgeous, then I rather choose to never understand this. I’d rather save my commentary for those who I truly believe deserve the praise for their beauty.
I’d definitely love to hear what others have to say about this. Are others out there confused like me too?
This past weekend I found myself spending time with two of my long-time friends on two separate days. One of which is my buddy Orchidus here on WP whom I’ve known since our first year in college and the other is a friend of mine since 7th grade. Throughout the years, it’s understandable that we don’t always talk to each other, see each other or even see the others’ footprints on our haunting grounds online. However, it’s moments like this weekend that make me feel like the friendships will definitely continue on.
On Saturday Orchidus and I had lunch after not seeing each for… who knows how long. Afterward we went around the area checking out the local shop. We first went to “Savers” and once we passed the two sets of doors, it was funny how we gravitated towards the same thing – the book shelves. Tons and tons of books. Old and new. It’s moments like those that make me realize how great it is when you’re with someone who has the same taste in things as you do. Even in the comic book store or any store after, we chatted, we geeked out, and most of all we had fun. Definitely an awesome way to spend a Saturday.
Then Sunday rolled around. Off I went to meet my dear, sweet “K”, the bride-to-be. It felt just like yesterday we were just 12-year-olds reading manga, talking about anime, school stuff, t.v. shows and what-not and here she was moments away from her wedding. Some part of me feels like I’m getting old. One-by-one my friends are getting married left and right and then some even having a kid or two. “K” herself is expecting one on the way.
After Junior High, I didn’t speak much with “K”. We texted more during our college days and kept in touch here and there, but once together, it felt like the old us again. That feeling is truly priceless.
In short, I hope these friendship will last for our lifetimes and more.
