Have you ever had someone you dearly love torn away from you in the blink of an eye? I definitely did. My dad passed away February 11, 2008 at the very young age of 44. It was heart failure. If people could only have transplants. Wishful thinking I guess. I know one thing though, I miss him. I mean I was 3 months away from being 16 and had the maturity of a 21 year old. I had to. I had been taking care of my dad since I had been a little older than 12. He had become my best friend and the most important person in my life. Thats what I dont understand. What is the point in being so close with someone and they get ripped out of your life. I still feel like there is a void in my heart. Like where is he? Is he looking down on me? Is he proud of me? There are so many feelings and thoughts that go through my head on a daily basis. I just see girls my age that have their dads and I wonder what it would be like for my dad to be here. What would life had been like? Where would I be right now? I just wonder. My dad didnt get to see me completely grow up. And I didn’t get to see him grow old. He was the best dad ever and he still is even though he isn’t physically here.
Happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors.
To love is nothing. To be loved is something. To love and be loved is everything.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect, it means that you decided to look beyond the imperfections.
Mistakes are part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. — Jimi Hendrix
Okay, so my topic today is not going to be my diary as I know I have been slipping on that. (Sorry). Today my topic is why people have to be so mean. In today’s society, social media is the biggest outlet for bullying. I see it CONSTANTLY! Especially on YouTube from people that don’t even know one another. For example Nichole337. This girl has autism and has spoke openly about her autism and makes videos. She has quite a fan base of people that love her and have heart for people that are a little different than themselves, then she has “haters”. I define these haters as people that are jealous. But when you twll someone they are being jealous they may say oh well what am I being jealous of? Of an ugly autistic girl? No, you’re hating on who she is. The person she is. She is brave and confident. She loves to joke around, have fun, and entertain. She loves to raize awarenes about her condition and has spoke out on it. People are jealous of the ones who actually do support her and jealous of where she is getting in life just with her personality. It makes no sense to me that you can dislike someone like her, then turn around and hate someone as beautiful as Trisha Paytas. (Blndsundoll4mj on YouTube). This person is ugly this one is fat. Jeez..where does it stop? I’ve seen Trisha be called fat, fake, and you shouldn’t wear this and your hair should be brunette and you’re acting stupid and you think you’re better than everyone else. Most recently I have seen comments where people are saying she is using the people who don’t have clean water in other countries to win king of the web for the money. Truth is: she isnt using them, she’s helping them. The money that she wins doesn’t all go to her, she is making videos and raising awareness to this clean water problem. Some of the money will go to these countries. You can always judge the most kind hearted or the most beautiful people. The bullies will always find something wrong. What if you were treated like that. Always having your flaws pointed out. Trisha is just like any other YouTuber, she wants to educate or entertain or just have fun. Give you tips and information. I mean what is a world where everyone is the same? Honestly take a second to think about that. How boring would that be?? I think some people should reflect on how we treat others. It affects people.
So, I know I didn’t write yesterday, but I will make up for it today.
Yesterday, I had my first day at Belair Grill for orientation. We filled out paperwork and talked about the menu. I knew 2 people there, Cheyenne Lee and Teresa. I don’t think Cheyenne remembered me from school, but Teresa remembered me from smokin butts. She is cool so I’m glad we get to work together. Oh and my mom was in the ER and we figured they would keep her, but they didn’t and so I had to bring her with me to get Shane. I hated to do it because Shane can’t stand my mom and neither can I. Its sad but true.
Today I went back to Belair and had to take a test over salads and appatizers. Tomorrow when I go back I gotta take another sandwich and burger test. I think it will be awesome to work there. But anyways. I’m done.
