This in my one minute or so speech “about myself” that I made circa 2010 Junior Year in Mr. Cheli’s class.
Hello my name is Jezza Mei Orpia, and I am IN DEPENDENT. Not “she got her own thing, that’s why I love her Miss Independent”.
I’m in-dependent of my parents who has, is and will continue to provide me with all the necessities in life. I’m in-dependent of my cousins who are the ears when I need the comfort. I’m in-dependent of my brother who gives me words of wisdom when I need to listen. I’m in-dependent to the Lord Almighty who has given me the opportunity to wake up this morning.
But most importantly, I’m in-dependent of myself because in the end, I don’t need anyone to call me beautiful in the morning because I know I am.
I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T do you know what that means?

I took my time to write this, so I will not let it go to waste because yelp is being difficult at the moment.
As a person who uses Yelp to help satisfy my hunger, I don’t think many people would be as adventurous to trying new food places without this app! Yelp has definitely changed my perspective towards unfamiliar grounds, when it comes to the location, of such peculiar or quaint restaurants.
If more people were to actively use Yelp, we would have a more accurate review; instead of reading either the food fanatic or the very picky eater, whom I would have punched a million times in my head if I was their waitress, we would have more of an agreement. But keep in mind, each individual has a different palette, meaning each person has a unique sense of what food they crave for or food that they detest. Therefore, don’t believe everything you read.

I am gonna keep this short and quaint.
Alex and I spent 30 minutes searching both our cars (b/c I “luckily” didn’t lock my car) for my keys, which was in the ignition-the whole time. I think this is the dumbest thing I’ve done all summer.

Is it just me, or does that look like floating beacon?

I think the best topic that people can learn from is an experience people would be surprised to hear. whether it be family, friends or unheard of experiences that happened, it truly opens up people’s eyes. It kinda let’s people feel less vulnerable because they realize that other people have been in deeper situations, which, consequently, boosts their self esteem. Nobody wants to feel victimize of having such a tougher life compared to everybody, because then you would feel like an outcast- and, apparently, it’s socially looked down upon. But what people fail to realize, is that 1. Everybody has felt like an outcast once (and if you haven’t..you’re lying) 2. Being an outcast means that you willingly or unwillingly stood out for once- and now it’s a new crave to go against the norm! Wow!
My point is, there needs to be more honest people in the world

You know you have a good friend if they don’t care you smoke before you enter their house. *keeper.

“And so their identical days and nights passed, days and nights in which adventure was just a word in a book or an image on the television that was always on, and whenever a door opened, they would say:
‘I’m not interested. I’m not in the mood’
How could they possibly know if they were in the mood or not if they never tried? But there was no point in asking, the truth was they were afraid of any change that would upset the world they had grown used to.”
This exert is from Zahir, by Paulo Coelho, probably best describes how I feel about certain people that I know. How frustrating, and inexplicably annoying to see how people declare in various social networks about how it is time to get a foot outside of the door (for once), yet succumbs to crawling back in their cave where the likelihood of new opportunities have long diminished. While they watch their chances ebb away into an area that may no longer be reached.
But from what I have learned, I am not responsible for the choices of others. Although, I would like to see them succeed and be the push they need to pursue new opportunities, I cannot be deluded from people’s actions- or should I say lack of actions- when it comes to my search. And although I would like to continue my rant of how ridiculously annoying a portion of humanity has become, I’m gleaning knowledge that there are just people I cannot understand, myself for one; so, in the words of Drake, fuck all y’all we ignore feelings here. I will no longer put more than *pinch thumb and index finger together* that much care to people’s choices.

You know how there’s certain people who are only sociable around a group of people? Well, there are in fact many people I know who are quite guilty of this. I mean, a conversation could only go as far as the many questions I can ask about you, you self involved cunt.
