Summer School Blahs: Writing in eyeliner, “taken” men, and other musings!

Happy Friday reader.

You know. My “normal” friends are out having the time of their lives, but science major me is enrolled in two electives over the summer. Easier to do them now than during the school year when I have to take all those crazy science courses :0 (help!).

Anyways, I’m taking “Dance” and “Communications: Public Speaking” at the local community college. Dance is online. It is more of a “dance history” kind of course so it involves a lot of reading and going to performances and critiquing them.

Now Public Speaking on the other hand, is a completely different story. It starts at 8:00 on Monday and Wednesday mornings. It also requires 4 speeches and 3 tests. Yes, this is what the world has come to. #help

This was my first week and let me tell you, it was…interesting. It all started out on Monday, I was one of the first ones there. I took a seat outside the classroom. There was also another student there, some boy my age. He would not take his eyes off of me!! My god that was scary, have you ever had someone that you don’t know just stare at you? Yea. It was wierd. Anyways. The other students started piling in and he started looking at them instead.

The professor finally arrived. She was totally dressed for summer in her sun dress and wedges. Very sassy. I like her.

After the initial intro, she handed out some worksheets for us to fill out. And what do you know. On the first day of school, I forgot a pen. I looked around in my bag and all I got out of it was a tampon and eyeliner. Yea, so um. I filled out the worksheets in eyeliner…What a great first impression! Lukily, I had some money and this college had a convenient store. I went there during break and bought a pen 🙂 I was happy but couldn’t believe I would forget a pen on my first day!! I guess this is karma for making fun of that guy in The “Big O”, pen stealers, new quarter, and other weekly musings! huh? Haha ❤

Fun fact: Did you know that some would rather die than speak in public?

Society and Body Image

body“Skinny bitch.”

I’m sure she meant it as a joke, but I felt all my weight get sucked in. No one has ever called me that before, until I walked out of the bathroom in my beautiful new dress and got that remark from my roommate.

Happy “Tunes Tuesday” dear reader. You’d think I’d have a song to share with you this week knowing it’s summer, but I don’t. I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately and this is one of them.

I am not skinny. I have been a competitive ballroom dancer all my life and was pushed to stay in shape. 4 hours of working out was required of me every day. In middle school, I was more developed than all the other girls. I got my period in 4th grade and it sucked. I had a bigger chest and curves than any other girl in my grade and I felt ugly. My mom told me that one day I would love them and feel blessed.

She was right, in high school, I felt gorgeous. Guys thought I was beautiful and I felt like Kim Kardashian.

But in college? No one consideres me curvy. They think I’m a “tiny girl” with a “tiny waist”.

“It’s like her body is disproportionate” my roommate laughed telling my suite-mates. “How can someone have such big boobs and a butt with a tiny little body and waist?” I wanted to slap her. I mean, I would call that a gift.

I confessed my hurt feelings to my gay friend Alex later that day, “Don’t worry Shaz. She’s just jealous that she won’t ever have a body as great as your’s. But she does have a point. You are tiny. Do you really eat three meals a day?” I was shocked. How could he ask such a thing?

I feel awful for teasing my gorgeous skinny friends in high school, they aren’t skinny! They are athletes who have strong bodies and work their butts off. They are perfectly normal, just like me. Just because I’m curvier than them, doesn’t make them skinny. And just because my roommate is bigger than me, doesn’t make me skinny.

I hated my roommate’s remarks. She even told me the way I should dress for my “shape”. I knew the way I should dress, I just didn’t want to flaunt around her like that because I knew she would eye my curves and make a comment about them. And when I wore looser clothes to cover them up, she’d tell me I looked like a grandma. It’s like I was stuck. Sadly, my roommate is not the only person who behaves like this today.

Our media portrays what “curvy” and “skinny” is and which one is better. Magazines are FILLED with covers like “How I got my body back!” and “You call this fat??”glamour mag

One of my favorite magazines, Glamour, did an amazing article on it. The attached picture of the two women was Glamour’s impressing article picture.They came up with the “Stop the Body Shaming” title. And I love it. I agree with their message.

I wanted to address this with you, dear reader. I was nervous until I talked about all of this in my Sociology 101 final…my professor gave me an A+ 🙂

5 Types of Men Every Sassy Woman Has in Her Life

boy best friends1.) The Best Friend- No matter what, this guy will always be there for her. He will comfort her in any possible. Whether she is trying to recover from a man or a hangover, he will have her back.

friends with benefits2.) The Friends With Benefits- This guy wants her. But fears intimacy will ruin their friendship. So he constantly behaves as a friend, as he constantly gets intimate with her. He will also be there for her no matter what, if he isn’t, he is what I call…a fuck buddy. (Read on!)

ef3.) The F— Buddy- This guy loves her. Only in an intimate way. All he wants to do, is be intimate with her. No commitment, no attachment. As soon as he feels attached, or feels she’s getting attached, he will drop her like a fly. He will also use this as an excuse to be a “f— buddy” to other girls as well. He will rarely respond to texts, even the ones asking for intimacy. Every move is determined by him. **Ladies, try to stay away from this man**. The intimacy will be outstanding, but the morning after, or hell even the days after…will not be!

4.) The Guy Next Door- He’s pretty charming. He’s seen her get the mail in her pajamas. He’s seen her walk her dog in heels. He’s seen the bedroom light on until 4am as she rights a lab report. He’s seen a lot… but they have never gotten closer than that!
