30) Your Opinion About Your Body and How Comfortable You Are With It
Let me just say that I don’t love everything about me.
I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either. So let’s go down the list.
Upside: My hair is a pretty shade of brown, a golden brown. It also is thick and grows fast
Downside: When I want it to dry it takes FOREVER. When I want it to be wet it dries instantly. It is normally straight, but there is a section that wants to just curl the opposite way. And a pinch of moisture in the air? Instant frizz. I have bangs and there is one section that will not lie flat no matter what, it always is sticking out. And any curl or wave added? Lasts about an hour then gone. My hair pretty much does whatever it wants to.
Pros: I have beautiful green eyes that sometimes change to blue; you know the type of eyes everyone dreams off. Plus thanks to my Mexican heritage they are slightly almond-shaped.
Cons: I have to wear glasses, all the time. My eyes are pretty weak and I have to wear a high strength. I wish I had perfect eyesight, it would be pretty amazing to wake up and be able to see everything instead of blobby shapes.
I don’t mind the glasses that much, it just makes things a little more difficult like cooking, swimming, sports, costumes, etc.
Bruce the Shark (Bad): I have a small chin and small jaw. This meant I needed braces twice to fix all my teeth how they needed to be, and make sure none fell behind the others, along with making it hard to take big bites out of anything.
I’m Mexican, Danish, and Italian. Unlike my other siblings, I only inherited the Danish genes and therefore have pale skin that does not tan, but burns or remains light. Needless to say the sun and I don’t do very well together.
If it’s not making me sweat overtime, then it is knocking my out as barely anytime spent outdoors in it makes me extremely fatigued.
I’m only 5’3. Besides from being the same height as Poison Ivy, there isn’t that many positives. People think you are younger, it is hard to find clothes that fit right, you are always being knocked into or passed over. Not to mention trying to see concerts or other things. It’s hard out there for us small ones.
My body size has never been exactly what I want. In my ratio of boobs to butt, my boobs are much smaller, making it hard to find dresses that fit right. I have abnormally large knees, causing difficulties when buying pants. I have a large but, but little hips. My torso or legs are not as long as I would like them to be. My stomach not as flat as I would wish. And I have an ugly belly button, because it was burned close as a baby.
In fact this displeasure caused me to become an anorexic back when I was 17. I’m better now, but I’ve had a few resurrections of the disease. And while I’m not 100% pleased with what I have, I no longer hate my body like I did as a teenager. Instead I’m just blessed to be alive.
It’s so easy to see what we see in the mirror everyday and hate on it, but never forget that with all your flaws you are beautiful.
So be yourself.
That concludes this 30 Day Challenge. I’m actually glad to see it over, writing about myself was nowhere near as awesome as writing about Disney, or reviewing horror films. It was a nice change, but if I was to do a 30 Day Challenge next year, I’m thinking books or movies.
Another top five countdown. 🙂 Here are my top five pet peeves.
1) Socks and Sandals
This video is hilarious, but I hate socks and sandals. It is so gross as you see the thick sock picking out of the sandal.
And it doesn’t make ANY sense!!!!!!! Why would you wear them together? You wear socks to keep your feet warm, and sandals to keep them cool. It’s stupid!!!!
2) When Restaurants Force You to Tip Them
A tip by definition is:
“a sum of money given to someone as a reward for their services.”
To you hear that restaurants? GIVEN! It is not something I have to do, it is something that I do when treated well!
If you go out with another person or in a group, a lot of restaurants will now force you to pay the gratuity or 15% tip. If you ask for split checks, they refuse. Not because it is difficult, because a single diner has no added 15%, they are at your will. More than one, they can treat you as horrible as they want and you have to pay it anyway.
Now I’m not saying that every restaurant will treat you horribly and gloat about how it doesn’t matter they are getting tipped anyway; but let me just state that in my experience that is how it is. Those that don’t force you to tip, treat you better than those that do.
I think it is stupid and that they shouldn’t be allowed to do so.
I HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE when people do this. It is not right at all. Seriously, If I have been waiting in line this long, there is no way I am going to let you just waltz in and try to get in the front. Heck no sucker! Get to the back!
Now many of you think this is only something that only happens in grade school, well you’re wrong. I’m a short girl, only 5’3. And because of this lack of height, people are always mistreating me.
And people are ALWAYS trying to cut me in lines. And there is no way I will let that happen. Don’t mess with me!
ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Words cannot describe how annoying this is. It’s like you get on the phone and then by the time you finally get someone you are like a hundred years old.
5) When Films Are Completely Different from the Book They are Based on
I understand that adaptions will never be pure. You always have to cut things as the book is usually much longer, internal dialogue can’t be shown so you have to find a new way, budget, effects, etc. I get that, and I appreciate when a film tries.
BUT WHEN A FILM IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!!!! And the only thing that is the same is the title and character names????!!!
It DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! Like Ella Enchanted,nothing, NOTHING like the book. There are many more, but that would take forever so I’ll stop now.
So most of the clothes from “2015” are a mix of ’80s wear taken to the extreme mixed with the stuff you would see on Star Trek. And while there are some crazy costumes in here.
They do have some advantages. First of all, the clothes are one size fits all.
Now, hold on. I know you’re thinking what’s so special about that? I mean you can buy “one size fits all” anywhere. Well these are different. The clothes are one size and then automatically shrink down or increase in size so that they fit you perfectly.
I know pretty sweet!
This would so fantastic for me. I’m short and pear shaped, so it is extremely difficult to find things that fit just right. If this was real, I’d be first in line to buy it!
They have some other cool features like automatically drying when wet and stuff like that
I wish that was real.
Well chances are that this technology won’t be around next year, but that doesn’t have to stop you from creating your own Back to the Future: Part II inspired wear. I’m definitely going to and I’ll try to post pics!
Check out Back to the Future: Part II for outfit ideas, or just to watch as it is an awesome film!
