Last night I had potentially one of the worst dreams ever. It was a pretty long dream, so I’m gonna skip to the good part, well bad part I should say…
BUT FIRST! A PREFACE!!! YAYSASDFGHJKL;’!!!
Ok it just so happens that I really really like words, learning new words and new languages. I f I were ever to become dyslexic I would be devastated.
Sooo the dream! Basically I was about to give my number to this cute boy on an index card. This index card already had some pencil writing on it and they were like math equations and I was simply going to leave it for him. When I first wrote my number down I wrote it down fine let’s say my number is 123-4567 (for hypothetical/security reasons), I wrote it down just like that in blue pen in a blank space on the card. Then I was like I wonder if he’ll want the area code so I attempted to write the area code in front of it…let’s say it was 603. when I wrote it down I wrote it really messy because I was so nervous, and I wanted it to be legible so I crossed it out and tried to rewrite it in another spot on the card. This time I wrote it (630) 123-4567. I realized I had made a mistake so I crossed it out and tried to write it again. This time it read something like (603) 124-5367. I tried again and again but I kept jumbling the numbers. I didn’t want to write over the pencil number in case he got those confused with my numbers for whatever reason. I was running out of time and space to leave my number and I was so stressed that
I woke up and decided it was a miserable dream and I hope that never ever ever happens to me.
Later I was taking an English essay-style test. I was writing in pen and I kept making mistake after mistake. I felt as though my dream had come true to a certain extent, this obviously did not come true, but even so it was bizarre and just terrible to think about. I truly hope this never happens to me. I’m so thankful for what I have.
Hi, My name's Elena and I lift things up and put them down
JK i don’t really. This is a post about the gym. I don’t even have a membership and I can only imagine that this rant would be worse if I did have one.
Ok I don’t need to hear about how you’re going to the gym every day and how you run 10 miles while you’re there thanks! People that do this are gym braggers. dumb dumb dumb is what I think. You’ll be like, “Hey! Let’s hang out later!” their response? “Ummmm sure maybe after hit the gym, I gotta get my 10 miles in”
Now, this is totally acceptable if this conversation is
a) between 2 Running buffs
b) between 2 self-proclaimed gym obsessed ppl
Otherwise you’re just bragging and quite frankly it’s not cool. If yo’re trying to make me feel inadequate, perhaps it’s worked perhaps it hasn’t but honestly i could care less if you ran 10 miles or .0002.
My problem with ppl that brag about going to the gym is that I find that they aren’t even fit. Don’t boast about hitting up the gym so often if you’re not gonna motivate yourself to provide the results ok? I understand that some people do have health limitations that disallow them from making the kind of progress while at the gym ie. ppl with diabetes. In which case this rant is not geared for you.
this is not my best work nor most thought out but basically the message to take away from here is that you should not brag/boast/overly mention your visits/activites at the gym if you don’t back your talk up with some visible results. The. End.

Arigata-meiwaku (Japanese) An act someone does for you that you didn’t want to have them do and tried to avoid having them do, but they went ahead anyway, determined to do you a favour, and then things went wrong and caused you a lot of trouble, yet in the end social conventions required you to express gratitude.
Call me a Debbie Downer or a Negative Nancy if you will, but I just don’t very much care for when people count down the days to a certain event. I just can’t get that excited about anything before hand. I think it detracts from the actual event, like, what if it fails to meet your expectations?! Walk around with an open mind.
Plus, personally I don’t very much care for when people harp on their anticipated event because, let’s be honest, it’s normally something to be jealous of and I feel like they’re just rubbing it in your face. Coooooool, thanks for reminding me AGAIN, for the FOURTH time this WEEK that I’m NOT going to CANCUN over Vacation, yes thanks, thanks for that I really needed it.
Let’s make matter worse now shall we? (We shall) OK so thanks again for reminding me for the nth time this week that I’m not going to (insert name of awesome place or event here), because instead I’m (insert really awful thing here.
Here is a sample:
Thank you for reminding me for the 4th time this week that I am not going to Mexico over April vacation (unlike you) but instead, I am getting my wisdom teeth taken out! yaaaaaaaaay! I’m SO excited!!!! -.-
Now let’s analyze the other end of the spectrum. Let’s say this person keeps telling you about how eff their lives their getting their wisdom teeth taken out, now that is just a straight up mood killer like ok I honestly don’t want to hear that 24 times a month before you even get those teeth out. If you’re gonna complain that much about your teeth BEFORE they’re even out then GTFO and STFU I can only take so much negativity before it starts to affect me.
In conclusion I think it is safe to say that a good balance of the two is good in my opinion if is grand to be happy to yourself that you’re going. Remind your friends before your trip or event that yeah you’re going. If it’s a trip I like to tell me friends about 2 a month and then a day or two before tell them I’m going with the utmost excitement. If I’m going to a concert or something then I prefer to tell them the day before (once during the week unless it comes up in convo) then either set it as my fb status or tweet it (or both) the day of, then you’ve told them what’s up without being too obnoxious about it in my opinion.
