I tend to think I’m dumb. On a near daily basis, I accuse myself of saying something incredibly stupid. I don’t have the best common sense, and I’m not particularly quick on my feet. Because I need that bit of extra time to process things, I always feel mentally inferior to the people around me who can react to everything automatically.
No one is harder on me than I am. There was a point a while ago where I got myself feeling so pathetic that my mom actually had tell me to stop calling myself stupid. It’s so obvious: don’t call yourself stupid. It does a horrible number on your self-confidence. But sometimes I just fall into it.
And I think that’s okay. It’s incredibly human to have little dips in self-confidence, but it’s also incredibly important to know when to pull myself out. So here I am, reminding myself that I am a smart girl.
For four years of high school, I took a full load of honors and AP classes and earned nothing but A’s.
Along with one of my closest friends (who I’ve actually featured on this blog before), I earned the most academic accolades in my graduating class.
I will be attending my top choice university in September.
I graduated as the highest ranked girl in my class.
So that’s me. While it does feel weird to post something like this online, it also feels kind of nice. Honestly, I think everyone should give it a shot. This is me, a random girl on the internet, giving you permission to brag a little. Brag in the comments, brag on your blog. I want to see people taking pride in their accomplishments.
Let’s just not take it too far.
Did I take it too far? I have this impairment that makes me incapable of seeing the line, so I never know when I cross it.
I sketched this design with a Sharpie, scanned it, and ironed it onto a t-shirt. Can anyone guess what song this line is from? I'm pretty sure it was a somewhat popular song five or six years ago because I sang it all the time, and I really only listened to the radio back then. And if it was on the radio, it must have been popular, right?
Occasionally I'll start wondering if I'll regret my bangs in a few years because when I see people get bangs (either online or at school), I often think that they looked better before. Lately, though, I've been feeling more certain about my bangs because when I see photos like this with my hair pulled back, I'm kind of like ew. I'm always too afraid to ask people in real life, but people on the internet, do my bangs normally look bad? Please be honest. I've been curious for ages. There's photos of me with bangs on the side bar and (probably) a few posts down if you want to give your opinion.
