To the Fan Who Thinks There’s No Tomorrow

Question:

What would you do today if there is no more tomorrow?

Answer:

If there was no tomorrow I don’t know what I would do. Is the world ending for everyone or is it just me? That would change some things.

If there was no tomorrow for me I would do some reckless sh*t. I would get a tattoo and I would drink heavily and try to fall in love. I would do something that I was always afraid to do, like skydiving or bungee jumping. I would do something so cool and people could talk about it for years to come.

If there was no tomorrow for anyone, I would throw a giant party for the people that I love. I would want to be with them all. But I also think that we should all be bombed and having a great time. Reminding each other how much we love one another before it’s all over.

To the Fan Who Needs to Know About Flaws~

Question:

What is your biggest insecurity?

Answer:

Insecurities are a tough thing to talk about. We all have them, but when it’s something that we suffer from, we don’t want to bring it to the attention of other people and shine light on it when we are trying to forget or hide the flaw from ourselves.

I have major internal conflicts every other week about the fact that I don’t really know what I’m doing with my life and that I don’t have a set plan yet.

I have insecurities about outward appearance. Being a 21 year old female in a college setting, it’s hard not to compare myself to the people around me. It’s hard not to say, oh if only my hips were a little more slim, or if only my skin were a little more clear.

But then I have to step back and think about, do these things bother me or do they bother me because I think that it’s how I “should” appear based on popular society’s opinion on beauty in women my age?

I am a beautiful girl with a complex and witty personality. Sure, I may not always feel like I meet some star dad of physical beauty, but I know that I can set my own standard. If I am happy with myself and who I am, to hell with the opinion of others.

I feel fortunate that I am able to say these things, because not everyone can win their battle with body confidence. Not everyone can love the skin that their in. But there are organizations out there aimed at helping these people see their own beauty. There are people who want to help them thrive and understand that these blockades and walls that we put up internally, they can be knocked down. The National Organization for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated disorders is one of those organizations. I strongly encourage everyone, whether you suffer with issues in body confidence or eating disorders or you don’t, support this organization. Help save lives. Help spread the word that we are all beautiful, no matter what.

To the Fan Who Wants to Know About Chinese Food~

Question:

What do you want right now?

Answer:

Well, you could refer to the Christmas list that I wrote last week or I could talk about some other things that I’d really like at the moment.

I’m sort of torn between Mexican food and Chinese food, I could also really go for some Pho.

Right now, I’d also really like for the stress breakout that is disrupting my face to go away.

I’d like for my bag back to Philly to pack itself.

For my nervousness to cease existing so that I can go back to being carefree and stupid.

For my inspiration to come back. I don’t know what happened but it’s like I’ve hit a brick wall. I don’t want to take another hiatus, but I am struggling to find any type of writing inspiration. Maybe I need to get my heart broken again or find something to fall in love with, whether it’s a hobby, a place or a book. I just need to do something.

I want something I guess. I just don’t know what that something is.

To the Fan Who Needs to Know About Life~

Question:

Why do some people enjoy life and others don’t?

Answer:

Simple. Some people are lovers of life other people are just livers of life.

Wow liver. Gross.

But what I mean is that some people enjoy everything for what it is in that moment. They love the life that they are living and live it to its fullest. They are not content with settling and hunt for the best thing out there, finding new adventures or hobbies or interests in life’s extraordinary ecosystem of opportunity.

And some people live life mundanely, dreading each passing day because either they don’t know what’s out there or they don’t care to look for something better.

I think everyone has a tendency to fall into both categories from time to time. I definitely have my days where I can’t be bothered to get out of bed for more than an hour. BUT I also have this insatiable wanderlust. I want to see what there is in the world. I can’t settle because what if by settling I miss out on the greatest thing that could ever happen to me?

Just some food for thought.

To the Fan Who is an Idealist~

Question:

Do you believe in ‘love at first sight’?

Answer:

No.

I believe in attraction at first sight, or desire or lust, but I think that love is so much bigger than those qualities.

Going beyond physicality, love is a gigantic thing. It’s about how well two personalities intermingle. It’s about similarities in life goals. It’s about little insignificant details that add up over time.

Love doesn’t hit you like a Mack Truck. It just doesn’t work like that.

It’s more a feeling that creeps up on you over a period of time.

Instant love is a thing of fairy tales. Love takes time. It takes two people who are willing to learn and grow together.

To the Fan Who Needs Some Veritaserum~

Question:

What is better the truth even if it hurts, or a lie?

Answer:

Truth. The truth is always better.

I grew up in a house where lying was basically a cardinal sin. Okay, don’t get me wrong, stupid little white lies don’t count. Like if someone cooks you a meal, they put a ton of work into it and you don’t love it, just pretend. That is a situation where fibbing is okay to avoid hurting someone’s feelings.

But full out lying to people. That is bad, very bad. Wouldn’t you rather just deal with the consequences of telling a truth rather than lying and being found out. If you lie and get caught, not only are their feelings hurt because they found out what you truly thought, but they’re probably pissed that you lied about it. So, it’s like double bad than just being upfront and the other person not liking your opinion.

End point: liars don’t prosper. Just tell the damn truth, at the end of the day you’ll have a clear conscience and eventually the people that you told a hurtful truth to will appreciate your honesty, even if it wasn’t exactly what they wanted to hear.

To the Fan Who Wants to Forgive and Forget~

Question:

Is it easier to forgive or forget?

Answer:

Both can be hard to do, depending on the situation.

If we’re talking a major blow-out or something that really affected a relationship that you had with someone, be it a significant other, a best friend, a family member, or whatever: I would say, forgive but don’t forget. It’s like the famous saying, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I think that it takes a big person to forgive a problem, but I think that it is a very naive person to forget it. People who constantly forgive and forget are the ones who are usually taken advantage of. Just remember, if you forgive someone, it is under the assumption that they will not repeat the action that needed forgiveness in the first place. If the action is repeated or persists, then it’s time to remove yourself from the situation. Don’t let anyone treat you like sh*t for any reason. You deserve better than that.
