GirlyorNot goes social – We <3 This.

by T

Hi Girlys (and guys too!).

I hope everyone is having a great new year. I wanted to take the time to outline some changes and upgrades that have happened to Girlyornot.com. First, I want to introduce the new girly that you will be seeing around this blog. Her name is Desi, and this is what she looks like with a helmet on:

I figured I could use some help doing things here. And of course, two girlys are always better than one, don’t you think? Desi just graduated from college with a degree in the art of journalism. Yes, I consider journalism an art. A very,very pretty art. Desi is the former editor-in-chief of the newspaper at her alma mater. She is also my bestest bestie. :)

So with all that said, she will be posting (along with myself) the best stuff you girlys will ever experience. Desi will introduce herself in detail more later, but until then lookout for the good shit that we’re pumping out.

 

Girlyornot.com is also going social. We now have an official Twitter and Facebook Fan Page that we urge you to check out. Please “follow” and “like” each respected outlet and get social with us. As the year goes on, we will have plenty of goodies and surprises for you girlys that keep up-to-date with Girlyornot.com going social.

We also now have our official email —-> girlyornot@gmail.com

Feel free to email us about absolutely anything. We look forward to speaking with you.

 

“A place for all us girly girls. A place to inspire and let out your inhibitions. That is the world, I would one day like to live in.”

With love and kick-ass,

Update.

by T

Hello Out There.

So, my semester has been done for about a week now. Let me tell you, those last few days were crucial. I needed a good week to just relax and clear my head. Unfortunately, the spirit of Christmas has not been in full effect since my last post. I am much more looking forward to the new year.

I have also been thinking about the direction I want to go with this blog. At first, I wanted to cover all bases (such as beauty,fashion, advice, etc.) but I think that was a little too ambitious of me. I am still pondering if I want to continue the original vision of this blog, or take a more direct,focused approach. I am thinking more of the latter. One thing I need to do though, post more!

I am not even going to promise more posts or anything like that. If it gets done, it will. If not, oh well. I hope this post does not depress you all, that is not the intention. So let’s talk about something a little more uplifting- Christmas!

I have yet to get my Christmas shopping done, as if I have any major money to spend, haha. Well, that is life I suppose. But, I do need to get little trinkets and such for my loved ones. I think this year I will give the alternative shops and thrift stores some love this year for unique finds. I may even skip the whole individual gift idea and do something they all will enjoy.

I hope you all are in the merry Christmas spirit.

Update On Me Part 2

by T

Hey!

Did you miss me? I sure did. I pretty much think about how much I don’t post anymore. Right now it is super annoying because I just got my nails done and I have to type with my tips. Why the hell did I think it was a good idea to get them this long? Shaking my head, literally. Anyway, I have sincerely missed my blog, and through my thoughts, I have decided to take a new turn on my blog. I have decided it is going to be more of a personal account. Of course I will have specialty post here and there, but for the most part I think I will get more joy out of the blog just writing straight from the heart. What do you all think?

So in lieu of being super annoyed with these nails now I will talk with you later. Kisses and hugs.

Dear Girlys,

What is wrong with the world today? And by the world I really mean America. Our “leaders” have the world’s worst game of tug of war into play. They can’t seem to come up with an agreement on anything. And while they are constantly arguing about who gets an extra cookie for lunch time, their old faithful constituents are so deep in poverty they can master in it. And what happened to gas prices changing every other day or so? Now they change during the day!

Let me get this gas now because it maybe twenty cents higher come 2 PM.

It seems like most of our nations supposed leaders are just talking heads. Whining talking heads. Just a bunch of bickering naughty children. And I can’t see why people continue to support leaders that really do not give a dollar about them. I do not care if you have preference for one party over the other. That is awesome. But, when you simply are for a party because:

a) your parents are

b) your friends are

c) your being trendy

or d) you just have no idea and are going for the people who look the prettiest and sound nice.

I have no respect for you. How can you continue to support a leader that voted for something against your self-interest? Say if you loved goats, and you have a pet goat named Coco. You and Coco are the best of friends and go everywhere together. Its election time and you vote for Roger Election. You voted for Roger Election because he speaks well and has a nice hairdo. He also regularly shops at the Brooks Brothers and is sharp as a tack. You vote for Roger Election on those bases, and because he gave you free ice-cream when he came to your neighborhood. He even petted Coco. Awesome!

Roger Election gets voted into office in your neighborhood. First thing Roger Election does is order that all goats be banned from the neighborhood and cooked as curry. Your mortified. But you voted for him, so your the dum dum. Moral of the story? Don’t be a dum dum. Do your research, ask questions, and do not be afraid to speak up. This just doesn’t apply towards our dear government, but also life in general.

I have met and meet a lot of people from other countries. And the one thing I hear from them (besides that Americans are lazy), is that we tend to forget. We are easily distracted. A major crisis can happen one day, and we will forget it the next. We are not consistent with what we stand for. And I believe that. Because if we were a more collective DEMOCRATIC nation then we wouldn’t be in this mess. If we actually took the time to research and look at past mistakes. Then we wouldn’t be in this mess.

But, along with being democratic we are a capitalist nation. Which has its promises and faults. Others come to this nation because one can build their own wealth freely. Yes, limitations exist, but for the most part one can go from poor to rich with hard work and dedication. People coming here from other countries understand that. It seems that the people BORN HERE have forgotten. Don’t get caught up in the hype. Stop being distracted and dig for the real message. Do not follow blindly.

So, do not just vote for Roger Election. Make sure your Roger Election is worth your vote and able to work on your behalf. I know it is hard to tell, but we can try to pick the least money and power-hungry person. There has to be one out there in that head hunter village called politics.

xoxo,

T

P.S.- Still super busy with work and school. Forever 21 is fun, but very busy. I actually wanted to start a retail diaries section, being that this is my first consistent retail job. It has been an experience thus far. :)

Dear Girlys,

You ever felt so unmotivated that you just laid in bed ALL DAY- literally watching time melt away into the night. I have. I have been doing it for the past few days now. When I started this blog, I aimed to post everyday (once I finally posted of course). And look, it has been a three day gap in my posting. Three days wasted, in my book. Let us just see the possibilities I could have done with this blog in three days:

  1. I could have commented on other blogs to make myself known.
  2. I could have improved upon my banner.
  3. I could have thought up a logo.
  4. I could have written something! Anything!
  5. I could have just stared at the screen endlessly until some creative spark came upon me.
  6. I could have just Facebooked all my time away.

But, despite all these “I could have” scenarios, I did come across some pretty awesome blogs. Did I mention I am a Public Relations major? I am a Public Relations major. Blog Roll-up!

here

this is awesome

love this

here

dude, wtf!

yes

awesomeness

So yeah, that is where I have been for the past few days. In between schooling and interviewing this dude for my personality profile assignment. Amongst all that action, I have felt sort of unmotivated and uninspired. Do you ever just have those few days where it seems everything is just… stupid? You let the feeling fester so much that it actually makes everything and everyone you come in contact with a drag. Me and my boyfriend were not even as happy as we usually are. Because of moods.

But moods is not what I want to discuss here. I don’t want to lay in bed half the day, hell, I am evening struggling with waking up before half the day is gone. It has got to stop. And I am not knocking sleep, cause anyone that knows me well knows I love me some sleep. But, I feel like sleeping so much can make you lose focus. And it has, for me. I am going off on a tangent, the focus here isn’t sleep either.

 

So what is it T?

The focus here is motivation and knowing your purpose. If you know your purpose, having the motivation behind it gives you the thrust to excel. Fast. I want to excel so fast that my mere stamina knocks bitches down. But, I also want to be there to pick them back up (if they aren’t hatin’ ^_~ ). I want all you Girlys and Guys out there to find your purpose. Don’t find it in someone else. Find it in yourself. Live well. Ask questions. Don’t take no for an answer. Always expect more, and nothing less. Love like you mean it, and don’t hate for nothing. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!

 

XOXO,

T
