I realized today how much of a loner I am. No, I don’t always keep to myself, and I’m not always introverted. In fact, I can be one of the most outgoing people you’ve ever met. Despite that, I’ve realized that if I had to choose between being around other people and being alone, I’d much rather be alone. The company of others often does nothing for me, and when I’m alone I can reflect in peace. I wish people could just KNOW this. I always get calls or texts from my friends and family, and sometimes it’s not so easy to say, “Yeaaaah. I don’t feel like talking to you.” People always take it so personally. If I wanted to be bothered, I’d come to you. Aside from that, I just generally want to be left alone.
Animals are so amazing. I never understand these abuse stories about people drowning, beating or torturing their pets. What makes them anything but adorable and worth the love, affection and companionship that humans receive?

There’s upsides to both small and large breasts, but women with the latter are often seen as more attractive. Why? Well, the number one reason would be because of the attention from men. Sure, scientifically speaking, big breasts immediately makes it obvious to the opposite sex that you’re “ripe” and capable of reproducing. Maybe you want big breasts because you want to look more filled out in your tops. There’s several very understandable reasons as to why bigger breasts are nice, but what many women don’t realize is that smaller ones have just as much to offer if not more. Hopefully some of my fellow ladies out there who are members of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee will make good use of the information below and learn to love their small chests.
1) Men are more likely to look at your mouth and not your breasts when you’re trying to have a conversation. Naturally they look at the things they find arousing and pleasing to the eye. So, the next time you’re in a meeting with male co-workers around or trying to have a serious discussion with your boyfriend, it’s much more likely they will actually listen to what you’re saying.
2) You can sleep facedown. One of the many discomforts of overlarge breasts (especially the plastic ones). The next time you want to kick your shoes off and pass out on your bed after a long day or even read a good book while laying on your stomach, you can feel good knowing that not every woman can sleep or even relax with that type of luxury.
3) You can play sports and exercise without frustration. Those of us who are active love the benefit of not having to worry about constricted movement and discomfort. Being too big can make even daily tasks or normally fun activities feel like a chore.
4) Smaller breasts are more sensitive to being played with. All thanks to less fat covering up the glands. So if you’re wondering how it would feel if your boyfriend (or girlfriend) touched your breasts and they were bigger, it probably would be a downgrade.
5) Necklaces look better on women who don’t have bazooka-sized breasts. That cute necklace that you love wearing over your favorite shirt… How would you feel if it kept falling between your cleavage or if it hung out on top of your swollen breasts unflatteringly?
6) Larger breasts are bad for your health. It puts pressure on the neck and back, which often causes bad posture, pain, headaches or even injury.
7) It’s easier to go shopping for bras. Whether you shop at Target or Victoria’s Secret, you will always find an A, B, C or even D cup. When was the last time you saw an E or a F?
8) You can handle and carry large objects a lot more comfortably since you can move more freely. This makes those awesome tasks like moving boxes or lifting relatively heavy/bulky items not as difficult.
9) People are less likely to think you’re an idiot. Of course those of us who are smart know that the only way to judge someone’s intelligence is by actually having a conversation with them. At the same time we do live in a world based on perception, looks and stereotypes, and there’s a huge difference from- let’s say… a cute blonde with A cups versus a cute blonde with double D’s. In my personal experience women with smaller breasts are more likely to be taken seriously at the onset of meeting someone new.
10) Being small can save your life. Literally. If you are ever unfortunate enough to get breast cancer, it is much easier to find lumps and tumors since there’s less fat in the breasts.
11) Less saggage. Smaller, perky breasts aren’t as effected by gravity. Your twin girls won’t be sagging nearly as quickly as your D cup friend’s. As a bonus your breasts are also less likely to have stretch marks!
12) You can easily make small breasts “bigger,” but it’s much more difficult to make big breasts “smaller.” Without surgery that is. Going under the knife is a very expensive, life-changing procedure, and, in truth, there is no surgery that is 100% immune from complications. But, if you’re already small, there are several easy ways to “get larger.” You can buy shirts that flatter your chest and give the illusion of a generous bosom. You can try the old trick of stuffing your bra. Or better yet there’s many bras of all sorts that will actually add entire cup sizes to your breasts. Big breasts don’t have this type of versatility; the best you can do is where a more unattractive sports bra all the time or try to strap them down, which often doesn’t work and/or makes your breasts look frumpy or misshapen.
13) During sex big breasts can get in the way. If I were a guy the idea of my woman’s double F’s slapping me in the face or causing either of us discomfort in every other sex position wouldn’t exactly be my ideal sexual encounter.
14) You don’t NEED to wear a bra. Bras are mainly used for support. Smaller breasts don’t need that support as they are usually already perky. (I, however, would suggest wearing pasties if you decide to ditch the bra.)
Before watching this video, I always just assumed that there was information floating around about me. Maybe nothing serious or personal, but now my perspective has a further range. We currently live in an age that has emphasized and developed technology, medicine and science in such a way that past generations would be shocked to see the kind of progress we’ve made. Finding someone and finding out about them is as easy as a single phrase or word in the google search bar. If there were any time in history where privacy became an increasing concern even for the average joe, this would definitely be it. I already knew that, but this short video gave me so much more insight. I think we should start thinking twice about some of the seemingly small things that we do on a daily basis that have the repercussion of allowing someone to access certain things about us that we may not want them to know.

Generally speaking, I’m often a very static person. Despite me not being the most organized person in the world (I blame this quality on my inclination to be a complete pack rat), I do like structure and stability. Even still it’s always nice to change things up a little and try out something new. Before today, my Android Bionic was a cluttered mess. Many apps- at least a dozen- that I never use were collecting dust and taking up unnecessary memory. Widgets were jumbled together with my apps and tons of pictures that I have never looked at after taking them filled my albums. I looked at the disorganized junk that my phone had become and decided that it was time to change things. Here’s what I came up with:
I love adorable things, and this Giraffe layout (Giraffe Theme GO Launcher EX) was too cute to pass up. It’s also a very simple and basic design, which makes my phone more functional unlike many other layouts that are interactive and more intricate; I find those to sometimes be a bit distracting, and not logical if you’re trying to maximize your phone’s battery. I also decided to begin using folders. I doubt my app hoarding will let up any time soon, so while I did delete quite a few, I decided to put the rest into appropriately named folders, which will help me stay organized.
I passionately miss books. When I say that many people may think I’m referring to actual reading, but I’ve always been an avid reader. I can read just about anything, but fantasy and fiction in general has always been my favorites. I love being brought into a writer’s world. I love getting to know new characters and being taken on an adventure that’s a few hundred pages long. I even love the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that I get from finishing a book.
Maybe it’s because of my lifelong obsession with reading that’s made me a little wary of getting an e-book. I could probably build a human-sized tower with the amount of books I’ve read in the last 20 years. Yet, with things like Nooks and Kindles out, small electronic devices that could easily slide into most women’s purses can hold more books than people’s bookshelves.
I understand. I really do get it. There’s so many pros to having e-readers. For one, they’re sleek and convenient. They also save a lot of money on paper (I’m big on not being a complete parasite to the environment), they allow you to buy and immediately start reading books from the comfort of your home, you can read them comfortably in the dark, they aren’t as easily destroyable as books… The list goes on.
Even still there’s just something I love about paper. Maybe because I spent so much time around it growing. I’ve done so much reading and writing the it might make even some of the most avid readers cringe. Nothing could ever replace a book for me, but what can you do in the 21st century? Books will never be replaceable. Electronics can always glitch and be a little crazy, but when something is actually printed onto paper it’s difficult to truly be rid of that, especially when paper has it’s own convenience (not having to boot up, it never “glitches,” it’s easier to “flip through, etc. etc.), but e-readers won’t be going anywhere any time soon. They are immensely popular and much to convenient.
Eventually I’ll have one too, but I’ll probably wait it out as long as I possibly can. Until then I’ll be completely content with taking an extra trip to the bookstore, walking the aisles and picking up the more attractive and physical copy of books.
So, I’ve been in Texas for the last couple of weeks, and I finally got back home today. It’s always amazing how you can’t wait to leave, to go on vacation, to take trips, then after a while you get homesick. You go home and you’re saddened by being home and life going back to the way it was. I always get a thrill out of going to new places… then coming back depressed…
Well, now that I’m finally home again, I can definitely get back to blogging as well as doing some of the things that I’ve missed. The number one thing on my list for tomorrow is picking up my cello; I feel like it’s been collecting dust since I’ve been gone, and I just know I’m rusty!
