I love my Sundays. For some reason, my brain just refuses to be responsible whenever Sunday rolls around, no matter what I may have planned. If I even think about accomplishing something important, I develop a nervous twitch, and my energy just drains out of me. It comes back instantly when I start doing something inane, like playing video games or stumbling around on the internet.
It’s such a beautiful thing.
I love it.
So today, dear Diary, I slept in. And watched The Four on Hulu, played World of Final Fantasy, and flexed my mayoral muscles on Animal Crossing New Leaf. Want to know what I didn’t do? Watch the motherfucking Super Bowl. Cause Cowboys. Screw the rest.
In a complete (brief) moment of seriousness, I want to take time out to thank you. All of you. For reading this, yes, but for more than that: for taking precious time out of your life just to come to my little corner of the world and see what’s been going on in mine. You could be doing anything right now, but you’re here.
That means so much, and it says a lot about you, too. What does it say? I’ll get to that in a second.
See, a lot of people can’t handle a girl like me. I continuously curse, I’m a fiercely independent thinker, and I refuse to conform to anyone’s idea of what an author should be or how an author should act. I couldn’t care less. I’m confident, fiery, and approachable, and I keep my eyes and ears open to everything because I see everything as a learning experience. Not to mention I’m nowhere near a Christian – or any other religion. (I’ll get more in-depth on this topic in my Patreon.) I’m just me, and I don’t need a label or organization to define, dictate, or proclaim my morals or beliefs. I can do that all by myself. And my actions show what they are; words are unnecessary.
So, what does that say about you for being here and reading this? It says that these aspects appeal to you, which means you’re not a follower either. It tells me you like to not only think for yourself and to try and keep an open mind, but that you’re not afraid to be yourself and want to hang out with people who are not cookie-cutter carbon copies of the mass majority.
It says you’re a natural leader, not a follower.
Which is a good thing. There are so very few of us. If anyone ever looks down on you for being different, for not being like everyone else, smile and remember two significant things:
- History never records nor is changed by people who want to be just like everyone else.
- People fear what they don’t understand and hate what they can’t conquer.
So, congratulations. And take a bow…
“A woman is handicapped by her sex, and handicaps society, either by slavishly copying the pattern of man’s advance in the professions, or by refusing to compete with man at all.”
