My sister got a grande white chocolate mocha from Starbucks yesterday. I love the little quotes that they have printed on their cups. Most of the time anyway. Sometimes, they're so stupid it makes my eyes want to bleed so I don't have to read the lines again. Mostly though, I like them. The one on her cup yesterday was one I particularly liked. I'm not a big fan of Keith Olbermann as a general rule. I don't love him, I don't hate him, he's just there and I don't pay a lot of mind to the things he says but once in a while he says something worthwhile. A good example; the quote on her cup! Here it is:
"The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you’re not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don’t take it personally when they say “no” — they may not be smart enough to say “yes”.
– Keith Olbermann
– Keith Olbermann
I really like that quote. Well, mostly. I love the first line and I love the last line. The first line is true. There are always more people in this world that are going to be there to put you down, to tell you you're not good enough, to discourage you, to laugh at you, to mock you, to try and tear you down and make you believe you're nothing and you're foolish in your dreams, thoughts and ideas.
I say FUCK YOU to those people.
I do not need their pessimistic attitudes. I do not need them trying to tear me down and tell me my ideas, thoughts and dreams are ridiculous because they're too scared to try for their own, too afraid to break through preconceived notions and barriers. I do not need their approval. I do not need to pay attention to their laughing and their ridicule because it doesn't mean a thing coming from people who have nothing good to say anyway. Ridicule, doubt, laughter and their discouragement only make me that much more intent on putting my best efforts forward.
Some tips from me to you:
Tip #1: When making something in the toaster and the setting switch isn't functioning right, it's best to not go off. It's annoying but you need to keep a close eye on it. Don't put your eyes close to the openings though, it's hot fools. Even if you think you have it set on the right thing and you're almost certain you have it set to pop up close to where you want it. Also, don't be busy reading emails while you slip something in the toaster. It's distracting and you just might forget you put something in the toaster. Two minutes later your stuff is going to pop up and it will likely be black... Burnt things smell horrible and that damn smell lingers.
Side note to that tip: I don't burn stuff when I'm cooking. I can't believe I burned some shit in the damn toaster, lol. The dial is fucked up and I thought I had it on the right setting though.
Tip #2: Don't needlessly be a bitch at work. Popping off about shit you have no clue about is a bad idea. The person you're popping off to knows their situation better than you so don't say something stupid and absurd just to be a fucking bitchy cunt. Unless you just enjoy being verbally bitch slapped because
Side note to that tip: I can't stand immature, catty, bitchy cunts especially when they act that way just because they can and not because anyone specifically did anything to them. I can't punch them because I like my job and would like to keep it. Money is good and being able to pay for what I need is even better. I can verbally cut them and shut them the fuck up though and still keep my job. Though usually I just ignore them because I don't like petty drama with bitchy girls. Say something about my boyfriend, family or friends though? You're asking for it. This girl's never even met my boyfriend and doesn't know a thing about our situation so she should have kept her mouth and her comment to herself. Of course, I usually ignore her so she wasn't expecting me to go off on her and didn't say another damn word to me all night. She also asked to get off work early because she was in such a bad mood afterward. Ooops. Bitch. *grin*
