I Can’t Stay Mad at You

Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget?

Honestly, I really don’t know. This is something I have wondered about for a long time, and I guess for me it just depends on the situation and the person involved. Honestly, no one (who I keep in contact and talk to etc.) has giving me any reason to hate them off the top of the head, unless it’s something so small and insignificant I can’t remember.

I do think it’s better to forgive and forget because there is absolutely no point in holding onto something which happened so long ago, so that is what I am trying to do about everything – to try not to mind too much and move on instead of living in the past. I do genuinely hope that people do not judge me based on what I might’ve done before, so I am working on doing the same thing.

It’s My Party

You’re throwing a party – for you! Tell us about the food, drink, events, and party favours you’ll have for your event of a lifetime. Use any theme you like – it’s *your* party!

I think parties are supposed to be my ‘thing’, considering the fact that I am currently a teenager. But to be honest, I really hate parties. I hate being forced to socialise with people who I really do not want to know, I hate having to be nice and friendly to everyone, I hate all the super loud generic pop music. The only thing I remotely like about parties is that it’s an excuse to eat really unhealthy food and not do anything productive.

But nevertheless, here is what my ‘ideal’ party would consist of.

As I am sure I have mentioned multiple times, I have some very unhealthy obsessions with various books and TV shows, namely Harry Potter, Sherlock, Marvel and Doctor Who.

So what I would like to be able to do is have all of this fandom-themed decorations, an unlimited supply of food, loads of nice things to watch, and perhaps a few actors from those said shows. (*cough* Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch.)

Actually, most of that just sounds like my ideal day.

But actually, I have recently discovered a weakness for extremely fancy events, like the whole long evening dresses with hair done up and fancy venues with wine and expensive food. Although those would be extremely painful on a daily basis.

In conclusion though, I would still have completely nothing against the idea of just sitting at home with a bunch of close friends and pizza marathoning some TV show.

Showdown at Big Sky

How do you handle conflict? Boldly and directly? Or, do you prefer a more subtle approach.

This for me, depends on the people who are involved and how extreme the said conflict is. There are usually two typical reactions from me when dealing with people whom I do not agree with:

  1. Tell myself that they are inferior human beings of no significance and therefore do not deserve me putting in the time and effort in stating the obvious to prove them wrong. 
  2. Plan out and correctly structure an entire argument in my mind describing the various points which they are definitely wrong and I am definitely right whilst acknowledging some counterpoints and destroying them, and then say all of this in one breath speaking as fast as I possibly can in order to lessen the amount of time where I have to speak and all attention is focussed on me.

I’m not sure whether these classify as either boldly or subtly, but whilst I do want to be direct the majority of the time, I tend to lengthen everything I say and think greatly, and try not to use contractions whenever possible. I also find it very, very hard to be ‘straight to the point,’ as proven in many situations. An example of the first thing that comes to mind right now was when (and I’m laughing whilst I think of this) my friends decided to randomly talk about me to a person who I did not know at all on their Facebook. This infuriated me a lot at the time, and therefore I spent about an hour writing an entire essay to both my friends and that person describing the situation and how much I hated and wanted to stab them all with a fork. It was only afterwards that my other friend pointed out I could have just explained everything in one sentence.

So I guess I am the more subtle approach sort of person, who drags on something and takes a very long time to get what I want to say across.

(I have started realising my awful tendency to join phrases together and write super long sentences which you need to either read really fast, or take an awkward breath/stop halfway…)
