Let's just say, basic bitches love fall, me included. I've always loved the summer sun, but I also couldn't wait for fall to come around and would prefer it to stay.
I get on anything social media and its constant girls exclaiming "fall fall fall" and I don't discriminate, that's also me. While everyone else watches from afar and frowns upon our excited little souls.
Some people ask, why fall? What's so special about those months where the weather can be unpredictable and winter is coming soon?
In case you still aren't sure, I'll fill you in.
What basic girl doesn't wanna take an Instagram of the beautiful changing leaves? They're pretty sweet. Prepare yourselves, the pictures are coming. #nofilter
It's not too hot.
Well, eventually. Summer can bring some unbearable weather to want to be outside in. For most of fall, the weather is comfortable or you can just throw on a cute jacket. Which brings me too..
Fall fashion may be my favorite. Sooo many possibilities. You have the scarves, beanies, flannels and boots! Legging weather is back so every girl is beyond happy. I'm more than ready to wear leggings whenever possible.
I'm not huge on the pumpkin fad, but bitches love them some pumpkin spice lattes. There's also pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pie, pumpkin this and that. Drink it up while you can.
I do love apples though. When the apple cider is here, I'm a happy girl. Bring on the apple cider festival.
Festivals of the fall.
I don't often buy much but going to them are a win for me. Gotta hit up at least one a year, or maybe them all? Apples, potatoes, crafts and pumpkins. What is it about these things that are so fun?
It's the spookiest time of year and who doesn't wanna be scared? Haunted houses, excuses to indulge in chocolate, dressing up, decorating, corn mazes, and carving pumpkins; if you're not amused, leave.
Hot cocoa, tea, and coffee.
Warming up with a cup of these, maybe by a fire?; soooooo relaxing. Make a mug and cuddle up.
It's not hot. Cuddle your hearts out.
As a fan, go football! It's at least an exciting sport if you're not into it. Try and enjoy it. For the fans, lets go football season!
I think I've hit the majors of why fall is bomb. Let's celebrate bitches, it's almost here!
I never really would have pin pointed myself as someone with depression. I live my life, things make me happy, others make me angry, and some things make me extremely sad. I would have put myself into a category of an average girl with crazy emotions. Now, I question if I was wrong.
I started noticing my lows being lower than normal when I was in my teens. Things would upset me more than I thought they should and I would lose it. First anger, then constant sadness and isolation. I never really talked about it with anyone and just hid it away. I figured it was nothing to really talk about or get into so why burden anyone else with my problems?
Today, I notice it coming up more than it did when I was younger. I get so low that I'd rather just stay in bed than do anything else. I want to be positive about everything, but eventually I get down and have a hard time getting back up. Something seems to happen almost every day that makes me say "life sucks." I want to be someone who is happy with their life, and I should be. I'm not homeless or without food, I have a job; I should be thankful, right?
As I am not sad all the time, I like to believe that I feel as anyone else would day to day. Things make you upset, you have a little set back, and eventually you move on. I still question if it's different though. Some people seem to not deal with such sadness I face as often as I do and I wonder what that's like. I strive for the day I am able to wake up every morning happy and feeling invincible. Will I ever have that?
I've thought about going to talk to someone about my feelings and actions, and I am all for getting help. I just have not found the extra push to do so. I encourage anyone out there feeling as I do to seek help if you think it is needed. Just talking with someone and have them sort out your life for you sounds like a good idea to me.
For now, I will write in my blog because in a way, it helps me sort out my feelings. As I said, I'd like to do more. Being a happy person is what I want for myself, and settling for only 50% of the time is just not cutting it.
Growing up is a bitch. Remember when we were younger and all we did was want to be adults? What the fuck were we thinking? I would love to go back and slap that naive little girl in the face with a reality check.
I mean yeah there are a lot of things I enjoy being able to do now; drive a car, stay out until whenever, drink alcohol (legally), have a job that's over minimum wage and being able to avoid things, it's all great. Aside from the awesome shit I can do, there are too many things that are a pain in my ass and could do without.
At least once a day I'm saying to myself, "I don't want to be adult." I whine, go home for the night, hide under my covers, and hope I'll wake up the next morning as a child again. It hasn't happened yet.
Here are a list of things that I guarantee you will have to deal with half of if not all at some point. Let's all have a good cry together afterwards.
1. Paying for your own food
2. Applying for credit cards
3. Filling up your gas tank every week
4. Paying off school loans, for the rest of your life
5. Apartment/house hunting
6. Finding one you can actually afford without starving
7. Car payments
8. Don't forget the insurance
9. Phone bills, maybe I can go without my phone?
10. Working 40/40+ hours a week to pay the bills, while wishing you were doing anything else
13. Cooking, where do we find the time?
14. Applying for loans because you can't afford anything
15. Watching while someone else just seems to have all the time and money you don't have
16. Clipping coupons and planning your life around those
Cry circle anybody?
