You probably thought I was kidding when I said I would start each entry with a pick-up line now.
I don't kid around with stuff like that ;).
Anyway, today has been a lot of fun. Rolling out of bed at around 11, seeing old faces, catching up, sharing college stories, laughing until my abs hurt and I was crying (mind you, very wet and very large tears were streaming down). The life of a college student. Oh gotta love it!

[Side note: I just killed a bug by clapping onto it, like a ninja. Totally disgusting (I just watched my hands like a bajillion times), but I feel a strange sense of accomplishment. Interesting. Thought I should share.]
|That was me...you know the one scaling the wall. Sorry, we can't all be as awesome :p Source|
Anyway, (wow I need to start learning other transition words), I was really loving life today. Good day.
There is always an until.
I was watching some youtube videos (not that cat one above, though) and came across this girl who makes hilarious videos who has the perfect body. PERFECT. So I watched the video where she talked about her exercise routines and her eating habits. She is vegan. I started thinking, well I can't give up meat or diary, but I could eat more veges and fruit. I can start working out as much as her.
Then I stopped myself.
Stop right there, thank you very much!
Here I am on this blog telling you to love yourself no matter what and the insides matter and all, and there I was, plotting how I could attain the perfect body.
Since I hate being a hypocrite, I think it's time to change (not my body, of course, or my eating habits, or my exercise habits; okay, I just confused you.)
I'm changing my perspective. What does having that amazing body get her? Creeping guys writing "I want to do you" and "I think I just got a boner".
Like honestly, do I want that?
Uhh, no. Thanks, but I am good.
As my nutritionist asked me one time, is your thinness all you want to offer the world? Is that your contribution? Is that all you got?
Uhh, no, again. Thanks, but I am better than that.
So, guess what?
After writing this, I feel so much better about myself. And I hope you do, too.
Because at the end of the day, we are who we are. And a part of who I am is quoting Ke$ha at every opportunity I have ;) And there is a BIG difference between who you are and what you look like.
[Side note: I am now scratching myself like crazy because I am a firm believer in karma and after killing the bug like 5 minutes ago, I'm afraid its loved ones will now eat me. Crap. No more ninja for me!]
Anyway (THINK OF A NEW TRANSITION WORD FOR ME),
What are your goals? I don't mean what is your weight goal or your exercise goal. I mean life goals. I would love to hear what you plan on contributing to this world.
