It’s Friday The Thirteenth & I Literally Can’t

BOO! Haha, just kidding.

I woke up this morning and was immediately stressed out. Not only do I have an exam today, but I woke up to five texts asking me whether these ugly  shoes were grey and mint or pink and white. WTF. It’s too early for this! Can’t anyone have a normal Friday?

October is hands down the best month of the year.

It’s the start of autumn and in *most* places, the weather begins to cool down. This year, we were blessed with having Friday the Thirteenth land in this ~spooky~ month. Contrary to popular belief, today was supposed to be a good day. But of course, life is life and it’s already shitty.

Everyone is arguing about these shoes. Are they grey and mint? Are they pink and white? Does anyone actually care? Yes, I did ask everyone in my class what they thought, but that’s just because I’m trying to fit in. Families are being torn apart by the minute with this arising issue. I see them as grey and mint, but I’m also semi-blind. I tried looking in the light, in the dark, and everywhere in between, and they ARE NOT pink. But plot twist, they are. Check it out.

On top of the fact that these shoes are pink, they’re $60. Do you know what you could buy with $60? Half of Forever 21, that’s what.

What was supposed to be a festive Friday the Thirteenth is now all about a pair of shoes, thanks to the Internet. I feel like I have a color issue going on with my eyes and my day is slightly ruined. Do I make an appointment with my optometrist? Someone tell me what to do!

I suggest we focus our energy on more important things, like Halloween costumes and plans, rather than our vision issues and these shoes. It’s the black and blue dress reincarnated into sneakers. Tragic.

P.S. I’m running a poll on my Instagram account (@nickiiiig) on what color combination you see the shoes. Head over to my profile and view my story to vote!

The best of luck on this traditionally unlucky day,

Love Yourself 2017

Just a quick reminder to always love yourself first. Until we realize that that’s the key to even beginning to finding happiness, we won’t be happy. If someone is bringing you down, cut them out. If someone is loving and supporting you- hang out with them more. A lot of us are too young to be wasting energy on people/things who don’t deserve it. Even if you aren’t young- don’t worry it’s never too late. The year is more than half way over and there’s no reason to keep wasting it on shit that isn’t worth it. YOU are worth it & we need to always remember our worth. Love with all your might and if someone doesn’t appreciate it, their loss. Save it for someone who will cherish it with everything they have.

Rant over, but I know some of us need the reminder.

LOVE always,

Nicki G.
