You know what really pisses me off? Besides stupid racist people and spiders..
That some people who actually know me in real life read this blog and think I’m some kind of bobble head blond useless girl. If people who only know me from the blog think that, that’s fine, because this is only a small (very small) part of my life.I like fashion and makeup. Yes I do, I will never say I don’t. But to be honest, I would be pretty bored with my life if that was all I did/liked/talked about.
This blog is a platform for me to write about my daily (mis)adventures. It’s a way of my parents and friends back in Portugal to know what I’m doing and that I’m alive and eating. It’s a way for me to keep in touch with them. But it’s also a way for me to just let all of my superficial girly things that I don’t usually talk about out of my system.
Ok, I won’t say I’m smart as fuck. I’m not. My Dad is and he wanted to keep it all to himself so I’m only half as smart. (and yes, I’m kidding!!!). I don’t get jokes at first. I don’t understand some things that are common sense to plenty of you. But do I only have shoes and makeup in my mind? No.
I like politics and history (if it’s taught in an interesting way, or else it’s boring) and science and medicine and whenever I meet someone that does something I don’t know, I ask questions like a 3 year old until someone tells me it’s enough for the moment. I am a curious person, I love learning new things! Do I like studying? No, but not because of studying itself, but because most of the things I learned in University don’t do anything for me (or my colleagues) and were there just to be pretty and look good on a resume. I read Nietzsche and Plato and Aristotle and philosophy in general. And right now I’m reading a book from Tolstoy.
But yes, I also like girly things. And I won’t apologize for that. There is nothing wrong in liking something that makes you feel good (unless it’s drugs..then it’s bad!!!). But I don’t take it to another level. I don’t have tons of makeup (everything fits in a necessaire), I don’t need to wear makeup and pretty clothes everyday. I actually go out with nothing but mascara and some concealer (and that’s just because I don’t want to look like a steady from the Walking Dead!). I don’t wear heels everyday. I like heels, sure. But mostly you’ll find me with my chucks or ballerina flats.
I’m not a poser. I don’t like to fight. So if you want to think I’m a dumb little girly girl, go ahead. But if you actually start a conversation about philosophy, history or something like that with me, you might be surprised.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. And you know what? Maybe some of the “smart” girls out there aren’t really all that smart and secretly watched all episodes of the Real Housewives and Jersey Shore.
