Marriage Can Wait

Now that I am approaching my late twenties, I am noticing a trend among my female peers, they are becoming desperate to tie the knot. The frightening 30 is just around the corner. They are desperately trying to find “the one”, the perfect dude that is going to give them an over-priced piece of jewelry to showcase his never ending love for them. They are going to have an expensive party and live happily ever after. Yeah, okay, call me bitter or a bit too snide, but I do not relate to these females. I understand that women were designed to want babies, and our chances of getting pregnant weakens as we age, but I do not comprehend this idea that we have to just find someone quick and boom get married. Personally, I am not mature enough to handle marriage, and I have never dated someone yet where I thought to myself “hmmmm I want to have sex with you for the rest of my life and love you forever”. It just hasnt happened yet and I am not marrying someone until I know I am hopelessly in love with them. I dont settle, I am too fucking stubborn. I am also not insecure about my age, because I think women get hotter in their 30’s and 40’s. How can you compare Sophia Vergara with Ariana Grande? Angelina Jolie to Megan Fox? I think Jolie is sexier.

I still look like a baby. People always think I am like 19 or 20. I am not sexy or hot. I am still just cute. I think I will get more attractive and womanly as I age. Maybe then I will be ready for marriage, right now I am just dating and finding myself. I believe in getting married for the right reasons, not because you think you will be alone forever if you dont, or because you think your looks are about to expire and you need a husband, or wife. 

Another reason why people foolishly get hitched is because they think they don’t have other options. I am serious! There are billions of people in this world and there is at least a few that want to date you. 

Anyways, I am a stubborn, sassy girl and I don’t believe in making a life changing decision because of silly reasons! What are your thoughts on marriage?


Shit Pretty People Get Away With

Pretty people get away with shit. It sucks, but it is the truth. Pretty people can get away with being weird, quirky or even strange, because it makes them more interesting, or people perceive it as “sexy”. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are perfect examples of this. Do you think Angelina could have gotten away with tongue kissing her brother at an award show, or wearing a necklace that had Billy Bob Thornton’s blood in it if she wasnt hot? Nope, probably not. I heard Johnny Depp used to go to the 21 Jump Street set with rats in his pockets! If he were ugly he would have been labeled a lunatic. 

Pretty people can also break the law, and get national attention for breaking the law and looking sexy while doing it. Last month, Jeremy Meeks was arrested, and his mugshot went viral, because he is sexy, oh my god those cheek bones and green eyes. If you Google hot felon he comes up; it is obscene. Apparently, he scored a modeling contract, welcome to America, where getting arrested for being in a gang sweep can make you famous. What will they do next create “Dancing with a felon”?

I guarantee you Casey Anthony would have never been acquitted if she was unattractive. I think her good looks played a vital role in avoiding prison time. According to The Daily Mail, attractiveness is associated with beauty, kindness and athletic ability. They discussed an experiment which was done and concluded that attractive defendants were judged less harshly than those that were not.

In the end, pretty people get away with shit and that is just the way the cookie crumbles. Want to read that Daily Mail article click here

Maleficent Is Magnificant

I never thought I would admit this, but Disney is beginning to get it right.

Do not get me wrong, most of us were enchanted by Disney films throughout our childhood, because there were pretty princesses, music and a happy ending. We were conditioned to seek out a happy ending. I never saw anything wrong with any of this until I entered college and participated in a media course which explained all the bullshit Disney instills into their films, the damsel in distress, the fact that all of the good characters have Caucasian features and all of the princesses are incredibly thin. They are always so damn giddy; let’s get real would you be singing with mice if you spent your days in old, torn up clothing sweeping the floor like Cinderella? Probably not. You would probably be smoking your life away and easing your pain with some Jack Daniels. 

This time around Disney struck gold, because Maleficant was an excellent film. For the first time they showed audience members how true love does not necessarily mean romantic love. They showed that Maleficant was actually an anti-hero who happened to get burned, because of greed, however she gets redeemed at the end of the film. I think redemption is always wonderful in films, because the majority of us have redeemable traits; we just fuck up time to time. Angelina Jolie was captivating as always, the makeup was great and it was difficult to not fall in love with her character.

The happy ending did occur, but it came about through a more realistic approach. Sleeping Beauty does get her prince at the end, and Maleficant defeats the evil King, however it lacked the cheesy nonsense incorporated into most Disney films. This film is a must see!
