If you’ve been following this blog for a while, most of you should know just how random I can be sometimes. And you’re not going to be spared of that today. I’ve been wanting to boost my metabolism so I started drinking three cups of water with one lemon and three pinches of Cayenne Pepper daily.
AND HOLY. MOTHER. OF. FREAKING. CRAP.
I have nicknamed this drink, “the liquid of death.” In all honesty, it’s really not all that bad….once you get last the fiery expanse that feels like legit LAVA rocks are being scraped down the very sensitive walls of your esophagus. Once you get past that, pfft, eezy peezy. Plus, the zest of the Lemon is also very refreshing and takes away some of the burn.
But let’s get back to the topic at hand, shall we? I started this blog a while ago, and I’ve been in LURVE with it ever since! You guys are so NICE! And so SUPPORTIVE! Basically, you guys ROCK MY FREAKING SOCKS AND YOU ALL DESERVE A NICE SLAB OF CAKE ON LIKE, SOME ANTIQUE DISH OR SOMETHING. When I first initially started this blog,let me tell you…. I WAS SUPER, DUPER, OMG, MEGA TERRIFIED to talk to people.
I thought: “What if people don’t like me?” Or… “What if they can tell I’m new and…scared?” And…. “What will the they think?”
I legit was so scared that it took me like a month and some days to start branching out to other bloggers. I has to suck it up and just do it. I remember doing it right before I had to leave for work so I wouldn’t have to worry right then if someone *EEP* responded to my comment. What if they didn’t visit, or even more terrifying, WHAT IF THEY DID? But all in all I’d like to say it all went quiet well. I’m not famous at all by any means (yet) but I was amazed by how well I was received into this community.
I slowly learned the benefits of going to more and more blogs and to be semi-active on social media. (I’m still a total fail whale at it but I’m trying. I’m trying.) I learned that by being myself I have have a lot more friends to make and believe it or not, it made me even more confident in real life. I’m no longer afraid of being judged (well…not all the time. I’m still human, so pfft.) But I don’t worry about what people have to say about me or if they don’t like me. Either they’ll like me or they won’t. Right??
I used to live in a shell. But you guys taught me a really important lesson, YO.
No matter how awkward I am sometimes online, I’ve never once had someone respond negativo to anything I’ve said on my blog or on Twitter. Like, how refreshing is that?? Knowing that I can be myself and make friends super easily (well…easily enough) and if they like me enough they may even stop by and comment every now and again. How freaking epical is that??
It is very epical. That’s right.
You deserve a gif of a cute little guienea pig fashioned in a pink polka dot hat, pigging out on cake.
And Cher Lloyd eating a cupcake if you will.
Gosh… I really want that cupcake, yo… NO. LIE. But, #Gottawatchmyfigure
Now I want to know how you guys feel about being yourself on social media. How do you guys feel about this blogging community?
