Top 5 Reasons Why You Shouldn't be Intimidated by Lil' Ole' Me

Saturday morning I woke up feeling shitty. The weird part was, nothing bad happened. And the night before I had a blast thinking I was Alicia Keys (more like Alicia Please) during drunk karaoke. But for some reason, I woke up feeling like someone ran over my puppy. So I ate breakfast and went to the gym ... where I received a pleasant surprise from the girl at the front desk. She said she read and loved my blog! It may not have looked like I was ecstatic at the time, considering I was half asleep, slightly still drunk from the night before, and was not looking forward to working out for the next 2 hours buuut talking to her really made my day. So thnx for being an inspiration Cara! (Hope u don't mind me busting u out right now lol)

We run into people everyday that stand out or make a difference in our lives, whether they're old friends or people we'd like to meet for the simple fact they seem "cool". Sometimes we make the connection and sometimes we don't. I've been told more than once from both men and women that I seem intimidating at first for one reason or another. Truth is, I am far from it. I don't want to say I'm a nobody, but I am definitely nobody to be intimidated of. And the following are 5 truths to prove just that. Actually, they prove I'm more of a ruh-tard than anything else but either way, they should give u a reason to stop being gay and just say hi!
  1. I cannot text and walk at the same time. So far I've run into a fence, a table, a phone booth, my mom, and a filing cabinet.
  2. I drooled onto the space bar of my keyboard just now. I'm not a drooler, but I'm chewing gum. Apparently I can't chew gum and type at the same time either fml.
  3. Imagine having to stick your arm out ur car window to open the door everytime u got out. Now imagine doing that in front of a house party filled with cute guys. It's a humbling experience I tell u.
  4. I own a fucking rubberband ball. I mean seriously, how can u be intimidated by someone who owns a rubberband ball?
  5. I am probably just as shy to meet u.

Hey girl,

I knew you went to the same gym because you mentioned it a few times before on your blog. I saw you once but didn't get a chance to say hi. My initial plan was to write you a post it note saying "I love your blog!!" but I didn't wanna get in the way of your working out.. I know how that goes, people coming up to you, interupting you in the middle of your work out.. So when I saw you again, I just had to tell you!!

This is my first time leaving a comment, but I want to tell you how much I love your blog, again. Sometimes people go through so much on the daily, good and bad, but I want you to know how uplifting it is to come to your blog and be inspired. You write a lot of things that most girls can't express and to know someone out there is going through the same thing makes me (and the rest of your readers) accompanied. 

So thank you for the company, thank you for your kind words, thank you for the entertainment (cause you're hella funny!) and lastly, thank you for being honest and not being scared to speak the truth no matter how much it hurt sometimes.

Getting out of a 6yr relationship three and a half months ago hasn't been the easiest but it has been bearable with your blog. When times were hard, I would go back and read and reread some of your entries till I felt better. 

Again, thank you and keep up the good work. You're amazing!

Your Avid Fan,

Sup Foo',

I just recently came back from San Francisco and even though I don't even know if you're really from there (cause you know how people put fake places they're from sometimes?) I was wondering if I'd ever run into you, even though I don't even know what you look like. Sort of odd. But I've been reading all the posts that my friends up here(Vncvr) reblog and "oooh baby I like it raw". Your blog is so real. And reading it gets me out of writers block. almost all the time. Next time I go down there which is very soon, I'm just going to hold up a sign and maybe you'll see it.

You're so(ul) amazing.
