About Me

My photo
I am from Sheboygan, WI and recently moved to Darien with my boyfriend. I graduated college with a degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy and found myself not knowing what I want to do with my life. I have a lot of interests and need to work to narrow it down in order to find my true passion.

Creeper at Wal-mart

Why is it that whenever I go to Wal-mart or grocery shopping around here, I either get hit on by a creepy old guy or I happen to find someone who wants to tell me their entire life story? Today when I went, I managed to find someone who was able to do both these things...
So I was standing there, minding my own business, smelling hand soaps to decide which one I wanted (For those of you that don't know, I am a very indecisive person. This man managed to make my decision go a lot faster.) and this man comes along and says, "Smells good, doesn't it?" Ok, creepy. But being the nice person I am I respond, "Yeah, it does." Then he said something like, "Oh, you are blonde." What that had to do with anything, I don't know, but he then went on about how he always had problems dating women, that they were usually too old, and how he hasn't found the right one yet. He then told me something like how he couldn't date me because I'm young and he just turned 50 and if he doesn't meet someone by the time he's 60 in like 2025 in 11 years (don't ask me how that adds up, those are the numbers he said) then he'll probably just give up. Then he decided to tell me (while looking at the soaps) that his hands are so chapped right now, probably because of the weather. It was about at that time that I decided I really needed to get away, so I smiled and slowly walked away. Luckily, he didn't follow...

Why do I always meet people like that? Maybe I just look like a nice person and they need someone to talk to. I guess I need to figure out how to look mean so I can get my groceries in peace and go home.

Leggings ≠ Pants

I've been wanting to post this for a while and just haven't gotten around to it, so here it is.

Leggings are not a substitute for pants. They should be considered a substitute for tights. In other words, cover your butt when wearing leggings.

I've seen so many people the past few months wearing leggings with a regular shirt that doesn't even go past their hips. I'm sorry but a majority of people are not in the best shape to be wearing something that tight without something else over it. It is so unflattering! Yes, leggings may make your legs look nice, however did you ever turn around and look at your butt in them? How about walking and looking back in the mirror to see what it looks like? Most of the time, it is not pretty. Leggings are thin and do not hold things in place like most pants do. Instead, you get a jiggly mess where you can see every movement and everly last bump and all the cellulite... ugh. Here's a few examples:


Yes, they are extreme examples from www.peopleofwalmart.com and they are leggings in terrible colors, however I think they get my point across. And really no matter what your size, cover your tush when wearing leggings. It's the decent thing to do. Leggings can be really cute when worn in the right way, like with a tunic shirt or long sweater. Just please, for the sake of people walking behind you, cover up!
