Letter to my Old Friends

Dear Old Friends,

Y’all taught me a lot about people. Some of you were fake, secretly jealous, or went against my loyalty. Yes, each one of you are the reason why I have trust issues. I can’t stand you. That’s why I always say “I don’t have friends.” Thanks for the temporary friendships. I don’t care if we were friends for a couple of months, days, or years. If you’re offended then I’m talking about you. Even if you’re not offended you still count if I ever called you a “friend.” This is why I don’t talk to any of you like I used to. None of you are there when I need someone by my side. I know for a fact none of y’all truly cared about me. All of it was fake support or love.  I could care less about how y’all feel about this letter.I’m disgusted with you fake people. I don’t even have to go into deal about how y’all betrayed me. You know exactly what you’ve done. Even when you think I don’t know what you did. It always find its way back to me. I can’t believe you dummies! Maybe there will be a part 2. Stay in tune!

Sincerely,

Destiny aka Reflectionofdes (:

My Trip to Barnes & Noble

Today, I went to my local Barnes & Noble store to buy me some good books to read. The books that I chose looked interesting. I’m so excited to read them. I did read the summary of the books before I got them. Before I spent a good bit of money on them. I had to make sure they were worth reading. It’s nothing worse than spending a lot of money on a book or books then they suck. The books I decided buying are…

1) Working Girls by Katt

2)The Pink Palace by Marlon McCaulsky

3)The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Life by Jennifer Byrne

They sound like good books, right? The first two books are urban fiction books which are books I tend to read the most. Book number three is a fun book to give out life advice that I don’t mind following. Can y’all believe that I spent $61.19 on just those three books? Most of you would probably be upset if you spent that much money on books. But, if you’re a book lover like me it doesn’t matter what the total was. As long as you had enough money to buy it then you’re good.

Also, I know most of you are wondering why didn’t I have a membership card or go to Books-a-Million because it’s cheaper. Well, today I finally signed up for a membership card at Barnes and Noble. Usually, I avoid it but today I didn’t. So, now when I go to Barnes and Noble I get a good discount on things I buy out of there. Oh yeah, the cashier did give me a discount on my purchase too since I had signed up for the card.

I was happy with my purchase today. Every time I go to Barnes & Noble I can’t leave out of there with at least one book lol. I have an addiction to buying books!! Like I said earlier in this post I’m a book lover. I can’t help it. Do any of you buy books from Barnes & Noble? If so, what kind of books do you buy? After I read my books I purchase I will give everyone a book review. My challenge for you is to go out and buy a book that catches your interest.

People True Personality Shows on Social Media

If you want to figure out someone true personality, follow them on social media. On social media a lot of people use their social media account as a tool to express their feelings. No matter if they have a small or large number of followers. After a while their account is an open diary for others to read. Even though you may not think people are paying attention to what you post. They are watching what your posts. Especially if it’s someone you know personally.

Sometimes we post things on our social media without thinking about it first. That’s mostly because we post based on our feelings. What I’m trying to say is whether we are mad, sad, or happy. We feel the need to tell everyone about it on social media. It’s our outlet to vent. For some reason most of us aren’t ashamed to express our feelings on the internet.

The point I’m getting at is that once we start expressing our self freely on social media. It’s how most people can view the type of personality we have. You could post a random status saying, “I love pizza.” One of your followers learn a fact about you. Or you could post “my passion is to help as many people as I can.” Simple posts like that can tell details about you.

Social media will always have a way of showing everyone’s true personality. It’s a platform that is made for us to express who we are freely right? So, tell me do you believe that people true personality shows on social media? If you don’t agree with anything in this article. I still want to know your thoughts on this topic.

When in actuality their intentions are to feed their own selfish needs. Once you get to know the person on a deeper level. Certain things that they do starts to make sense. For example, when they come around other people everyone starts acting different towards them. When I say different I mean everyone is having a good time then suddenly, their mood turns sour. When a certain someone comes around. The vibe is thrown off. A person presence can tell you a bit about them.

Deceiving people can come in the forms of a friend, stranger, or family. They could be someone who’s rich or poor. You’re getting the point, right?

Reflectionofdes Diaries 📖 – Entry 3: Living in a Single Parent Home 🏠

Living in a single parent home has its struggles. Too bad many of us have to experience it. Don’t get me wrong it’s nothing wrong with living in a household like that because it teaches you a few things about life. Also, it doesn’t mean you’re less than a person that grew up in a two-parent home.

One of the struggles you may experience in a single parent home is lacking your other parent which is an obvious. The other parent probably never been there to help take of you from the start, didn’t have a good relationship with the parent you lived/live with but still spends time with you, or maybe they died.

Another struggle is watching your mom or dad stress over bills and sometimes it’s nothing you can do about it. It makes you feel some type of way seeing your parent stressed out. You will have plans in your head thinking about ways you can help out when you do get extra money. Then you secretly make a promise to yourself and say when you get older you’ll make sure you don’t have to live pay check to pay check. So, you won’t stress like your parent do.

One thing a single parent home does teach you is how to become a strong person. You watched your parent over the years take care of you without any help. That shows you how you can be independent without depending on anyone. Another thing it teaches you is to make the right choices in life. I bet most of your parents tell you to wait to have kids and be careful who you have your kids by. They tell you that to help you understand that taking care of you and your siblings isn’t easy. Your parent doesn’t want you to stress and go through the experiences they had.

No one plans on being a single parent but sometimes life happens that way. Remember everything happens for a reason. So, don’t think you were punished. Accept your situation as a blessing. You may have gained wisdom from your situation that others don’t have.

LIT People on YouTube

There are so many creators on YouTube. Everyone has their own niche. There are only a selective few that stay lit and keep you entertained with their videos. If you don’t know what lit is it means when someone stays in a good spirit all the time and likes to have fun. Well, that’s the best way I can describe the word.

They Stay LITTT

Kway & Lala: They are best friends that started a YouTube channel together. Lala was originally vine famous when the app was popular. Kway and Lala are the perfect duo. On YouTube they prank each other, make skits, and vlog. On their videos they always cracking jokes at each other.

Jay Versace: People originally know him from doing funny vine videos. Now he’s creating content for YouTube and on his other social media accounts. Jay says whatever is on his mind. This boy has no filter at all. He’s so hilarious! Also, he does skits just like Kway and Lala. His story time videos are dramatic but entertaining.

PerfectLaughs: Jaz (PerfectLaughs) always post funny pranks. It’s never a moment where she won’t make you laugh. Every time she’s on camera she stays smiling.

 

 

 

De’rra & Ken: They are a cute couple that does mostly pranks and challenges. Every time they make videos that are in a hype mood. Their reactions during pranks and challenges are the funniest.

 

 

 

All these creators in one video would be epic. Everyone personalities clashing together would create an unforgettable video. Each one of the YouTubers that I listed above are from the United States. If you haven’t seen their videos before check them out on YouTube. Their videos are worth binge watching. You want to know why? because they stay LIT!

4 Reasons Why You’re Not Consistent with Blogging

Blogging in general is tough when you try to have a consistent schedule. You want to have your full focus on your blog. Sometimes it doesn’t happen that way. Even when you want it to. I will tell you 4 reasons why you’re not consistent with blogging.

1) Your life outside of blogging is busy: Life outside your blogging world is probably hectic. Most of us do have crazy situations going on outside of the internet world. It’s tends to cause a big distraction.

2) Feel unmotivated: It’s sucks to not have any mojo about writing when that’s all you want to do. Feeling unmotivated is a case of laziness sometimes. It sucks you in and it’s hard to get out of. You probably feel unmotivated because people haven’t support you like they used to.

3) Overthinking a Topic: Over thinking a topic you want to blog about can turn into a big problem. If the topic is on your mind. Go ahead and write about it! Don’t hold back. Most of the time the topics we try not to write about end up getting good results. It’s like when you’re insecure about wearing an outfit to an event but end up receiving so many compliments on it. Life is about living with no regrets. Take advantage of it.

4) Feeling like your blog is boring: It’s normal to feel like your blog is boring to your readers. You only think that way because you aren’t getting enough feedback. The other reason that might make you feel this way is the fact that you’re not interested in your posts.

There will be a point in your blogging journey when you’ll be able to stay consistent. Balancing your time will help you out a bit. Just keeping pushing through. I promise you everything will start flowing the way you want it to.
