Hello people reading this. Hope you are having an awesome day. So.. Some of you may be wondering the reason as to why I decided to sit here typing this on my rubbish laptop as if someone in the world is going to be reading. I have hope that at least one person out there is reading my blog and can relate to it. Like I know some people set it up to just talk about random stuff and be themselves. And don’t get me wrong that’s completely fine. I probably set it up for them reasons too. But there is one main reason. A reason that most people say that they want to do, but are too scared to fulfil it. ‘I want to change the world.’
I know you might be thinking, Oh Ma Gawsh! Not her too going off on one saying that she wants to like change the world and everything.. Psshhh as if that is ever gonna happen. (You’re totally saying that right now). But I really do want to change the world. To be specific I want to change the way people think. Prepare yourselves for a journey through one tiny bit of my mind. (There’s a hell of a lot more.)
People are very stereotypical and most of the time, depending on the way they are brought up or the things they have experienced, it comes to them naturally. Example. Say a man with tattoos and piercings wearing a hoodie and baggy jeans is walking on the same side of the road to you. Would you or would you not cross the road? Why? Because he is dangerous or he might be a thug or he might attack you or he might be in a gang? Why? These thoughts automatically come to our mind because we associate certain features with certain things. The tattoos with being dangerous. The hoodie with being in a gang or being a thug. Yes, they might dress like that. But it does not mean that everyone else who dresses like that is “one of them.” I like wearing hoodies and I would say that I’m your pretty average teenager. Well not “your” average teenager because god knows what kind of vision of teenagers you have in your mind. I want people to see the person they are inside, instead of their outward appearance.
I also want to be the kind of person to say that you know what, it’s okay to be “messed up.” It’s okay to do what you want to do and no one else can say anything because it is what’s making you happy. Basically this blog. I mean you could be saying that there is better people’s blogs to be reading. But speaking to people when you are not actually talking is making me happy. It’s almost as though I’ve made a good impression on that person and now the only things you associate ‘Strikedbyepicness’ is nice stuff and encouragement and too not judge. Okay let’s say that you want to spend all night partying because it makes you happy and it’s your way of getting freedom from everything else in your life. You go ahead and do that anyone who tries to stop you, punch them. (Don’t actually do that, but you know what I mean).
Something that actually really inspired me these past few days was the music video to Kids in the dark by All Time Low. Here’s the link if you want to watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaIegdJxTsE I had actually seen it ages ago but recently it made me feel as though I want to do the same as the people in the video. (You’re not ganna understand me fully if you haven’t watched it!) See I’m making you do stuff now. It’s kind of like a party/ throw paint at everyone/ mega fun awesomeness that the ‘kids in the dark’ throw to help everyone to escape from their crap lives. They basically provide the happiness in every person’s life. I want to do that. I want to be the reason someone has a smile on their face or has a reason to live. I want to throw a ‘kids in the dark’ party. And all of you are invited! 🙂
I’m just ganna end this long post with giving you a personal experience. I’m in high school. I personally think that it is too early waking up at 7am and putting any effort in your appearance what so ever. Most people disagree. They will say that they need to look their best at all times. I can see the difference between how people treat me and how people treat others. I can see people avoiding me or not talking to me based on my appearance and because I’m not the prettiest of them all. But I come with good intentions and a non-judgemental attitude and people don’t see that. All they see is the tramp-y, fat girl who is anti-social and not fun to be around. Yes, I am anti-social and don’t know how to talk to people or carry on a conversation, but there are reasons behind that. Reasons which you couldn’t think about because you’re too busy washing out your eyes because you saw me in the corridor. But that’s for another post.
I know I’m not the best blogger or writer but I want to get the message out and for people to see me for who I am. Because everyone is unique. And who knows you might share the same aspirations as me and you might find me fun to read. (I doubt it). The only way is people knowing about me and my mission to change the world, and you can help me. Please tell people or send them a link of my blog and who knows one day we might just throw our own kids in the dark party. Thank you if you read this I really appreciate it.
I know it’s probably the most said quote and all but just remember, never judge a book by it’s cover.
