Cotton Candy

I’ve never had cotton candy and I guess that makes me uncultured in that area of American culture.  It’s not that I’m afraid of its magical fluffiness or sneaky flavors.  I’ve just never really had the need to eat it or been given the opportunity.  Usually when I’m at the fair or somewhere that offers it, I find something better!  What’d you t think?  Do you think that I’m crazy?  Tell me!

It looks untouchable!  Like, it isn’t something you should eat.  More like insulation to put in-between your walls!

 

Mirrors

I feel like there is something to say about mirrors.  No one talks about them?  Well.  I’m about too.  Are they  a piece of equipment used to be vanity stricken?  Are they a way to check and see if you look presentable?  If so, why must life always be “showy.”

Is life a fashion statement?  In my opinion clothes are something used to express yourself.  I don’t feel like make-up and clothes are something that should conceal us.  It should be something that enchances your natural beauty.

Well, what does that have to do with mirrors?  It’s is making the point that we live in a world that is all about looks and appearance.  We are very visual.  Thank God!  If a font looks ugly, I change it…  However!  In general, I couldn’t really  support the face that a visual society is all good.  It pressures people to change and warp themselves to fit in.  It pressures people to uniform.  You can give me the ho-sho about how we all have free will.  True!  Yes, we are all unique but if someone is too different, we definitely outcast and sooner or later the person has to change something.

Maybe I’m overcomplicating.  Maybe you have never thought about it.  Maybe this is all useless.

Butter-Fly?

I’ve been thinking about the word lately and it has given me quite a bit of confusion.  They are these beautiful insects, right?  Well, why do we call them butterflies?  They don’t look like flies and they have nothing to do with butter.  I’m really getting quite annoyed with the English language.  What is including butter in the name doing for us?  Are we implying that they are overweight?  Who are we to say that a butterfly has clogged arteries?  Where does that leave us?  Uhhhh!!!

Another thing that is frustrating is that I can’t take Drivers-Ed until next spring and I won’t be getting my license until the summer before junior year.  I’m such a baby!
