Hello everyone..I hope that everyone is enjoying their long weekend! I went to the mall this weekend with the kids since it rained, and we had a play day at the mall. Once the kids were done playing we decided to get shakes, as we always do..and while we were sitting down drinking our shakes I started to listen to the workers talk... There was a boy that walked up to the counter in a pikachu hoodie, cowboy hat, big baggy pants, he had long straggly blonde hair, and he was carrying a pikachu huge stuffed animal at his side. My opinion of this was whatever makes him happy to wear is his choice.. and I could see that he was very shy and timid, probably from being made fun of all the time. The whole group of workers were of course making fun of him as he walked away, laughing, making comments, etc. This boy had no clue of the things that were being said of him, and I am sure they had fun making fun of me as well as I was in this outfit at the mall, and I am loosing my hair everywhere. My blog is my way of expressing my creativity with my clothes as my art if you will. My outfits are crazy, unique, and sometimes out there...but I don't care because this is who I am, and I am not afraid anymore to take the risk. Why is it that a good bit of society act like this? Can they not see the hurt that they cause someone to feel after tormenting, and teasing someone? I mean we all have been to high school with the cliques etc. and we all know who the bullies, the popular, nerds, etc were, so you know what I mean. I don't know what any of you were in high school, but for me I was just there..I wasn't in the popular group, or any other groups and I never got the chance to even be voted to be homecoming queen etc..because I wasn't in the "popular" group. I think it would have been nice to see some of the other girls in the school up for a shot at the tittle instead of the same group of popular girls, or it would have been nice to see the same group of people not bully around the same boy just because he is different. I had a class with a boy in high school and everyday in that class he was picked on so horribly. The one day he sat in tears, and my heart hurt for him so I sat and talked to him because I just felt so bad. That boy had a great heart, and yes, was different but there is nothing wrong with that..sometimes it is good to be different. Oftentimes we don't realize how our words and actions affect others, nor do some people care. It makes me sad to look at my children and realize what they will be facing in school, and that society is still like this. I just hope that my kids will be leaders.

Yes I know that I don't look nearly as pretty, or have long pretty flowing hair (mostly because I am loosing all of my hair!), or those cute pants, or that skinny...not yet anyway...
I do like this look a lot, and it is totally something I would wear as the skinnier me...I will get there!
Have a great day everyone!
