Too many awards shows

award shows sm

We have a slight problem, America. We are addicting to having award shows and giving out awards. Think about it, how many award shows do we really need?

All the awards shows are totally counter productive of each other. Who needs 10 award shows for movies? Do we have 10 awards shows to give movies equal amount of chances to get an award that is absolutely meaningless 9 times out of 10? We have the big three award shows that really are important. Those three are: Oscars, Emmys, and Grammys. They cover most of the entertainment industry. Oscars are for movies, Emmys are for television, and Grammys are for music. There’s also the golden globe but it’s not as prestigous. But if you don’t win an award or get nominated for one of those three, stuck it up and move on with your life.

Everyone shouldn’t get an award. The fact there are multiple award shows is hurting the respective industries because the awards hurt the other one. Yes, I do think we need to have awards that the public/fans pick but there should be one for the industry and that’s it. An all-inclusive award show that allows everyone, no matter what age, votes in. Let’s be real: Do we need to have genre specific award shows?

So let’s cut down the amount of awards show and try to rebuild the meaning and prestige of giving out an award.

What is Pride

pride sm banner

Yesterday, there was a hashtag that became trending on twitter that slightly ticked off the internet.#HeterosexualPrideDay. Since the world doesn’t seem to understand why pride events are a big deal, I’m going to break down what exactly pride is.

Pride isn’t something the LGBTQ does to rub in your face whether you are for or against people right to be who they are and love who they want to love. It’s a celebration of being who you and celebrating the ability to love who ever you want to love regardless of gender. It’s done as a way to promote equality because it some countries, people in the LGBTQ community can get murdered for being themselves.

Do Heterosexuals get killed loving who they love like that no? Heterosexuals don’t have to worry about hate crimes happening to them based on sexuality. Heterosexual aren’t oppressed like the LGBTQ community. Pretty much everyday is Heterosexual Pride Day then.

I also found this online that full states the internet’s opinion on it:

Don’t be quiet about goals

goals sm

So I was on my personal Facebook page and one of my friends posted this on their page:

0bcb4f53568e39f478d7d43629775225

I read this to myself and I was slightly wondering why anyone wouldn’t talk about their goals. Apparently, this is something people use for self-love when I was researching it. I’m calling BS on that to an extent. I personally don’t find this as self-love because if you loved yourself, why wouldn’t you want to openly share your goals? Because if you are setting goals, especially for yourself, why should you try to hide them? Are you ashamed of the fact you have those goals?

Those goals are part of your story. While your story is different and unique to you, it’s not something you shouldn’t share. Especially when you could use the people you tell as a support system or motivation to you regardless if they are supportive or not. Sharing your goals could help you check them off of your goals. I can understand not sharing your goals if they are something really personal,but like I said, talking about your goals is not a bad thing.

One of my goals is to cut back on my pop/soda drinking. I told people about it and they are being supportive of it. I even have one friend that hasn’t drank pop/soda in over three months so we talk about how we miss it and all of it sounds good. Talking about missing it helps with not having it. All I’ve drunk for the last two weeks is water or Gatorade. Now that I’ve done it for that long, the competitive side of me is taking over and I want to see how long I can go without any so I can be better. The goal of that is to be a healthier version of me. I’m sharing that so that if someone else is going through the same thing, they know through me that it isn’t that bad.

Here’s a list of the recent goals that I have:

  • Start to be comfortable in your own skin
  • Love yourself no matter what
  • Cut back on pop/soda
  • Be Healthier
  • Worry less about things you don’t have any control over
  • Continue to write your story and don’t settle for nothing less than what you want
  • Be completely comfortable in your own skin

So, please. Don’t keep your goals to yourself. You never know who you will impact with your goals. Telling people about your goals my even help you achieve your goals in a way you never thought out. You just never know. Because others have similar goals to mine, I draw inspiration from them to complete the goals. If they could do it, then I can too. Besides, completely goals isn’t easy. It’s rather hard. So sharing goals and using others as inspiration help motivate and make them slightly easier.

What are your goals? If you would like to share them, feel free to leave them in the comment below.

Being an adult is pain

adult

Being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Frankly, it’s rather annoying and a pain in the ass. As a teenager or kid, you think it’s all fun and games but it’s not. It has its perks but it’s horrible. In order to prove my point, here are some things that make being an adult suck.

  • Bills-  Bills are the worst thing in the world. Especially, student loans because all those do is get larger if don’t pay more than what is expected. But if you pay more than expected, you really can’t afford to do anything. Bills just eat away all your money and set the tone for the rest of your life: you’re going to work your damn ass off in order to make money.
  • Money- Sure, you have job but nothing works without money. But you don’t have much of that because of bills. Then you need to eat and drink in order to survive so there goes some more money. In order to get a job, you need a car and gas cost money too so there the remaining amount. It’s an never-ending cycle of pain. You will always need money and when you don’t have, you can’t have a life.
  • Freedom- Yes, this might look like a good thing but it’s not. It’s too much sometimes because you can control your life so if something sucks, it’s your fault. No one else told force you to do that thing that sucks. Then if you are bored, you have so many choices because you have freedom.
  • Responsibility- This is annoying because you have to be responsible for your actions, this goes back to freedom. This means you have to think about what you are doing and how that action will have consequences on things. Like you have the freedom to have sex with many people, this requires you have the responsibility to use protection in order to not to get pregnant or a disease. But still, that’s not safe because you could end up with a baby, gonorrhea, or both! Then you are responsbile for another human that you may/may not be ready for and telling people you had sex with that you have gonorrhea.

Do you see how horrible being an adult is? It’s not fun. It’s annoying.
