Look what happened now...
Follow trends? Follow people? Follow ideas? Follow mainstream?
Nope, I don't really do any of that, don’t get me wrong- there are a few people I follow and read everyday - they rock. But anything else? Nope. I wear what I want to wear, when I want to, I do my hair, nails and shoes to make myself happy, etc.
But on the other hand it’s ok to follow. You can get some great inspiration from others but, do not copy or steal.
That's totally NOT COOL. You know, I have heard all my life that when someone copies you/acts like you/does what you do it's a great compliment. Hmm nope, it's theft. I don't want to be cloned. I could never figure out why people did that in school. Why you want to pretend to do/be something your not? How tiring is that? I am “ye of little attention span”, call me when something happens, I will be over here reading or drawing. lalallalala skips away~~~
So one day a girl started "cloning" me at school. 1st I thought I must be imagining this. Why Me? I had friends and a BF, but so? I had my share of teenage angst too. (We had that back then, you didn’t invent it, LOL) anyway I watch and watch. What I randomly pull out of my closet to wear on Monday she wears similar on Tuesday. What I wear Tuesday she wears on Wed and so on. So I do experiment (Cause I’m all about science, right?) I wear outlandish clothes next week. She repeats what I wore week before! (Why you have better taste than me, then WHY COPY ME?) I was like WTF? Maybe it’s all in my head...but no, I go back to regular clothes and she continue to copy me. Buy shoes like mine, book bag, earrings, etc..Then she comes up to me and tries to be friends, SO I was like ok, who the HELL are you? She was just lonely and wanted to fit in. * ___ *
Ok, I gave her chance & she befriended my entire group - she ended up with my BF's BFF and they got married! I was like what the??? How you move so fast?? Then all hell breaks loose and she is no longer the same person?! WTF? She doesn’t Dress, Act, BE same person as before, suddenly. The guy was like WHAT HAVE I DONE? WHO IS THIS? We were all very astonished that any of this happened. :0
My boy friend did go on later to become my hubby (years later, God rest his soul.) He went to his best buddy and told him to get an annulment. And what the HELL was he thinking? (Cause that's what real friends do. They call you on your shit & are still there when you screw up, no matter what.)
This was some crazy shit! How far will you carry something like that and why? Just F’ing be yourself. IF people like you good and if they don’t then F them and you find people that will later on. NO sense in wasting your life and train wrecking other peoples.
Ok story over...
It’s ok to Follow your heart and me on twitter, lol
But don’t clone anyone, K?
