Highlights of 2013

I graduated!
And I went into freelancing. So YES, NONE OF THAT 9 TILL 5 BULLSHIT FOR ME. But I'm still having trouble adjusting to having another responsibility added to my life. It's hard enough trying to juggle friends and family and blogging... God knows that I have little to none time management skills. And now I gotta factor in WORK?

But this is the life I've chosen, and by god I'm going to suck it up and learn, not just to live with it, but to thrive. So gimme some time and watch me.

Am I the only one who likes the new Miley? 
And doesn't think that she's trying to rebrand herself? Seriously, all that crap about her trying to break free from her Disney image is both stupid and boring. Can't she be experimenting? Can't she have found herself? Can't she be coerced by her publicist to be this slutty goddess? Goddamnit people, just because twenty people say that she's so controversial right now is because she wants to reinvent herself DOESN'T MAKE IT TRUE. And I happen to like her before and after. At least she's staying true to herself, for better or for worse.

To be honest, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I saw her VMAs performance (because I hadn't made the connection between her performance and Rick's Blurred Lines MV) and I didn't know what to think. But you know what I've realized? We don't always have to know what to think. We don't always have to have a valid explanation or try to understand every single thing. We don't need to know the cause of the effect. Who cares if this:

Became this?

People grow up but it's still the same person, isn't it? Stop trying to figure out why and just go with it. It's not your job to make sense of our entire species. Why don't you spend your time wondering what made you the way you are, instead?

We could have easily been naked druggies right now if civilization hadn't decided that being decent meant what it means. So stop your judging or continue on with your boring unhappy lives.

Am I also the only one who dislikes the fit girls hype? 
Honestly, I'm so sick of memes that propagate stereotypes. Memes aimed at women's self perception, especially. As if women aren't objectified enough. Even girls objectify themselves and other girls. Hell, I do it, your sister does it and so does your wife!

Who are you to judge what is true woman is? Last year, it was all about how "real women have curves".

And this year... Muscular chicks?

For one, I'd say ew. Because personally, I like girls with tone, not muscle. And I've never been a fan of abs because I think any horizontal line on a female body aside from collarbones just doesn't appeal to me. But I love these so called 11 abs:

Just two, sometimes three vertical lines down your abdomen. Yums.

I'm also a firm believer that no girl should go below 18% fat because there's a reason we're biologically programmed to accumulated fat much easier than men, who are able to build much easier.

But what I have to say is the same as the Miley thing. Just because everyone you know thinks that that should be the new ideal, doesn't mean that it has to be yours. If everyone in the whole world loves eating bitter gourd, does that mean it has to be your new favorite food too? Don't be afraid to be who you are, like what you like and do what you love. Don't afraid to stand out and be different, even if the nail that sticks out gets hammered. Because I'd rather go down with a fight than be subservient.

Suck on it.

Anyway, guys... Wishing you all happy times and priceless memories for 2014, and may tonight be the best night of 2013, however way you choose to celebrate it.
