Don’t Wait, Do What You Want

If you tell me not to do something….I’ll either understand the logic behind your request and comply…..or I will realize you don’t know the situation, and I’m going to do what I please. This is the latter.

Do What You WantSomeone had the audacity to tell me what I should and should not blog about. Here’s the thing. This space is mine. No one is forcing you to come here. Second of all, if you’re worried about what I will post, realize that I am discreet. While I can be blunt, I’m not intentionally cruel.

In other news, I had deleted tinder and opened a different online dating profile. And then I realized…I don’t have time for this. In June I’ll have class on Mondays and Wednesdays, 6-9. Plus homework. Plus I have a late shift from 10-7 on Tuesdays. So I have Sunday night and Wednesday night for “school nights” in which to get stuff done. Because naturally weekends are pretty much booked. I won’t be giving up those precious nights for dating. I need them for workouts, laundry, and cooking. (And….this might be where I admit how old I am).

So rant over. Disclosure over. I’m going to keep doing what I want, and what I think is best for me. Sometimes that might mean sharing dating stories (and hopefully they won’t all be horror stories) and other times that means not posting because all I’ve done is work, school, and the normal boring stuff everyone else does.

Do you let people tell you what to do? Do you have a space that is all your own?

  1. I can’t believe someone told you what you should be blogging about – this is your space you are right, you should write what makes you feel good! Why are there so many jerks on the internet? Sigh.

  2. Jeez, I can’t believe someone told you what you should or shouldn’t be blogging about. It’s your space and I feel like you are discrete when you write about things. This is your space and you are sharing your story!

    I try not to let people tell me what to do. I do struggle when I know I am doing something that my parents don’t approve of, like my decision to move in with Phil, but it was a decision that Phil and I had to made. When I told my parents I acknowledged that I knew they would be disappointed but said we made the best decision we could and they have been pretty understanding.
