so the girls are apparently accused of homicide because they were found with the murder weapon used to kill Alison. the way the cops & their parents were talking, it seems like there’s some ~really strong evidence against them and there’s a very good chance that they’ll be charged with Alison’s death. OK, i don’t really know much about investigations, how they work and stuff, etc. but HOMICIDE. that’s a serious charge. don’t investigators usually go through EVERYTHING when there’s a murder case? wouldn’t investigators go through the girls’ phones and computers and see the messages from A? even if they deleted stuff, they would still be able to find them. after seeing the texts and emails from A, then it would be crystal clear that they were framed.
ALSO, i can’t stand officer Garrett and Jenna, BUT did anyone notice that maybe garrett might not be as into sabotaging the girls as jenna? i don’t know but during the episode, does anyone remember that look on his face when Aria was on the phone and just started crying? and when he was in the room with Jenna at the end of the episode, she looked so into it and wanted him to kiss her but his face just looked like he was unsure about everything.
lastly, i still don’t understand how A can be EVERYWHERE and have spot-on timing. i know this obviously isn’t a REAL show, but sometimes it just seems too ridiculous, until i find out how A is working and doing all of this. i hope when the series ends, they provide answers to everything.
what do you all think? any thoughts you wanna share about the show, even if i didn’t touch on it?
haha omg my FAVORITE! I actually have a roll on my dresser right now lmao
believe it or not, the last time i remember lying was when i was 14 and i didn’t want my parents to know that i was talking to my current bf because i wasn’t sure how they would react. (i’m now 21.) i mean, obviously people make mistakes and do lie. i’m not trying to say i’m perfect or anything, but i think once people get to a certain maturity level (and most of the time it happens when people get out of high school) there shouldn’t be a need to lie anymore. i just don’t do shit that i wouldn’t want people to know about. i don’t know, i guess i’m just really open with people. that post was mostly directed to people that are now adults but still lie compulsively or lie about stupid shit that doesn’t even matter.
that post wasn’t made to sound pretentious or anything; lying is just something that really bugs me. i’m sure i’m not alone in that opinion.
Last night at work, I saw the sweetest thing. On weekends, we have a man named Gary come to sit outside with his guitar and play music on the patio. He has song request slips that people hand him between songs, and he will serenade you with anything off of his ‘Song Menu.’ Anyways, I walk out to go bus a table that was an absolute wreck, so I was out for quite a while and took my time, enjoying the night air and listening to Gary’s smooth voice. I overhear an elderly couple next to me. The man says, “I hope he plays the song I wanted. It wasn’t on the menu but I’d sure like to hear it.” His wife smiles at him as Gary moves on for his next song, opening it with, “I got a special request tonight. Luckily, I know this one very well,” and begins to play. Then the man walked over to his wife, knelt down and asked her to dance. It absolutely made my night.
I’ve been thinking lately. What ever happened to romance? There’s a gaping difference between the generations and how they view spending time with their sweetheart. It’s amazing how much you discover as you spend your time observing the customers on a slow night in a restaurant. The younger men don’t make sure to hold the door and let you walk first or pull out a chair for a lady before sitting down. They walk in and sit. And of course I’m not saying this about everyone, but there’s a consistency of proper manners and respect that I see in people ages 30 and beyond that you just don’t come by as often anymore. Nowadays, men enjoy time with women when they can “get some.” And to further prove my point, the moment I signed on here tonight, my dash was littered with more people than I can count on one hand about how when they ask a girl to “come over and watch movies,” they have ulterior motives. Of course this can’t be faulted entirely to men. It’s women’s fault too, as we have collectively become a breed of human that competes with one another for what? A man’s lust over his love? Wearing a shorter skirt than your best friend may get you more attention for one night, but when she shortens her skirt and gives it to him easier, what man would make the effort for the classier, more refined product? That takes more work.
Tonight, I watched another one of those sappy romantic comedies called My Best Friend’s Wedding with my mom. We got into talking about romance and how important that is… I loved this movie because it wasn’t the typical predictable film where the friend finally throws herself at her best friend and he ditches the “other woman” for her and lives happily ever after. The man in this movie followed his heart and was in love. I know it’s just a movie and I know life is nothing like Hollywood tricks us into believing, but it’s nice to see a realistic situation play out and end up the way it should.
Today, the idea of being romantic is writing on someone’s car window with one of those paint markers asking a girl to prom. That’s not thoughtful. That’s bland, cliche, and just plain annoying to get rid of at best. No offense to anyone who did that, but that’s not going to tug at any girl’s heart strings and make her swoon. To plan something a woman will appreciate doesn’t necessarily mean having to spend buckets of money on her. And that’s something that separates the women from the girls. Personally, I’d rather have something sweet, like a handwritten note waiting on my windshield to surprise me after a long day at work.
All I’m saying is that I may not want to be in a relationship right now or any time soon for that matter, but when I’m ready, I want romance. I want DATES. I want you to look your best and get the nervous shakes just at the thought of me. I want you to WANT to pick me up and wait for me when I’m late because my hair isn’t doing what I want it to. I want you to reach for my hand before reaching for something else. I want to be kissed in public and looked at in the eyes. And most importantly, I want to be treated like I matter. I don’t want tons of phone calls, or all the time you spend with your friends, or your wallet, I just want respect and adventure. I want animated cartoon hearts in my eyes at the sight of you, and for you to have that too.
Society has progressed in such a way that we have mutually devalued both ourselves and the opposite sex so much that our standards are through the floor. And I’m done settling and you should be too.
Basically what I’m saying is don’t be an idiot.
this, though. maybe i’m just super old-fashioned. but i think more guys need to be real gentlemen. i just really admire how old-school couples were/my parents are. when my mom and dad were dating, he was a real gentleman to my mom. it was SUPER old school that no one does nowadays though, like he would randomly give her chocolates, he would take her on dates and never let her pay, he would open doors for her, pull her chair out for her, carry her stuff for her. he’s a really giving and generous man. some of the stuff may seem materialistic, but i don’t mean it to be…just that those actions show that he’s giving and not selfish. too many people now have a “me-me-me” mentality and are way too selfish without even realizing it.
if there’s one thing that annoys me more than anything, it’s lying. i cannot describe how much it annoys me. it’s despicable. it’s horrible to say, but not a single person who has ever lied to me has gained back my trust completely (literally) no matter how much time has gone by, no matter how many times they’ve apologized, no matter how well things seem to be now. after i get lied to, i take EVERYTHING they say with a grain of salt. EVERYTHING.
even little white lies: i don’t understand why people do it. if it isn’t a serious situation where someone HAS to lie to avoid severe consequences, why lie? why not just tell the truth? afraid that someone’s going to think less of you? well, when they find out they lied, it’s gonna make you look a million times worse in their eyes, than had you told the truth. i would rather always hear the truth 100% of the time and get hurt and get it over with, than be lied to.
to people who lie (even little, tiny white lies): STOP IT. no one will ever get close to you. they may act like it, but in reality, they won’t be believing a single thing you say. i don’t know if this is everyone, but i have a REALLY good sense of when someone is lying to me. it NEVER fails me. i don’t care how good of a liar you think you are; I CAN TELL WHEN YOU’RE LYING TO ME. i won’t call you out on it, but i’ll just store it in the back of my mind and remember that you have lied to me and that i cannot trust you. but seriously, I KNOW WHEN PEOPLE LIE. lol just thought i’d say it again because SO many people lie to me and think they’re so slick that i don’t know and will never find out. but guess what? I DO KNOW. right when a lie slips out of someone’s mouth, a little radar goes off in my head saying “ding-ding-ding, they’re lying to you.”
what’s the point of constantly lying? to all you liars out there, i’m just trying to help you out. really think about WHY you lie. i really believe that most lies come out of trying to avoid potential problems. well guess what? the moment people find out you lied, original problems and consequences that would’ve come from telling the truth are gonna be a million times worse than what you’ll experience, i guarantee it. secondly, i think people lie to make themselves look better to others. people will find out. i strongly believe that ALL lies end up coming out, sooner or later, one way or another. then people will find out that your life is one big lie.
(this was intense. hahaha. i don’t know, i guess i just feel really strongly about it since my parents NEVER tolerated lying, they are extremely honest people and i was raised that way…)
- we “can’t afford” to fund NPR
- we “can’t afford” to fund Planned Parenthood
- we “can’t afford” to fund education
- small businesses are drowning in this economy
- thousands in this country can’t afford to properly feed themselves or their children
Capitalism is fun, right?!
i don’t agree with the jab at capitalism at all, but i do think it’s ridiculous/sickening how much entertainers get paid and how other people are struggling to survive. in my opinion, honest occupations that our society depends on deserve to make WAY more money than they already do. instead, the people who make the most money are those that get stupidly wasted for the public’s indulgence, making sex tapes, following vapid peoples’ lives, etc…
DOES NOT MAKE IT A FUCKING PHOTOSHOOT.
I just sang a few songs in my shower…I guess I’m the singer of The Story so Far now.
lol true though. everyone’s a model and a photographer apparently.
the main difference I’ve observed:
thinspo: super thin girl wearing a bra and denim shorts, with her ribs showing
fitspo: super thin girl wearing a sports bra, workout shorts & running shoes, with her ribs showing.
tomayto-tomotto. In my opinion, the best “fitspo” blogs provide accurate information on health and wellness instead of just posting photos of skinny girls working out. I’m not necessarily complaining because I couldn’t care less what certain blogs choose to post, but i just find it funny that just because an outfit is different and the post is tagged as “fitspo,” people think it’s entirely different from thinspo.
BUT, I really do think everyone needs to start making healthier choices if they aren’t already.
I’m memorizing food labels and seeing other people eat all this shit all the time. I see how much butter people use, and they add like 40 grams of fat to their meals. It’s disgusting. Cheese is a huge thing too, I realize how many things have cheese and I know exactly the fat content. It’s gross. I can see why people are so unhealthy these days.
THIS. especially when junk food is disguised as “healthy.” like how people think aspartame (splenda) is better than sugar because it has 0 cals and a lot of granola bars are the nutritional equivalent of candy bars…
God’s side :)
this should have soo many more notes
posts like these are such bs. people don’t have to do anything to prove what they do/don’t believe in. just because someone doesn’t reblog something doesn’t mean they believe/dont believe in something. lol this is ridiculous.
