At least when it comes to standing out individually in a unique way.
For guys, I’ll admit a lot of us can look the same sometimes. Especially those hypebeasts who wear the typical “snapback/g-shock/jordan” outfits with the typical hypebeast clothing brands. Most guys can look generic at times and there are only a few of us who can truly stand out.
As for women, they have hella different options when it comes to fashion. There’s a wide array of different styles, along with a variety of ways to rock those styles. They also have those little accessories that can make big ass differences to their outfits which can also add an uncommon touch. On top of that, they can get hella dope clothes at cheap prices along with a big selection of different clothing stores available to shop at. No wonder why girls love to shop so much.
I follow so many interesting people here on Tumblr.
Unfortunately, I can never keep updated with their posts because my dashboard is flooded all the time by random ass blogs which prevents me from seeing the quality ones. Also, I rarely scroll down my dashboard that much nowadays.
I follow a lot of those “fuckyeah”/photo blogs and they flood my dash a lot, but I’m too lazy to unfollow them.
I’ve only unfollowed about 4-5 blogs during my entire 2 years here on Tumblr, but maybe I should start doing it more often to make it easier for me to keep up with the people on here who truly interest me. There are a lot of captivating, entertaining and inspiring people that I follow on here who make great posts that I’ve sadly been missing out on.
Why is it that so many Filipinos who grew up here in the States look down on “Fobs” and many other Philippine related things in general? In schools, it’s common to see Fil-Ams hate on the Filipinos who just came from the Philippines. They even start name calling, start beefs, and even fights with their own people just because they grew up in the homeland and don’t talk with an American accent.
I don’t get it.
It’s only been about 115 years since our people were freed from the Spanish and gained independence, yet we’re already forgetting our culture. Some of us even have the nerve to disrespect and laugh at it.
Do you think Filipinos from previous generations came to America with the intention to watch the future generations grow up to be cocky ass hypebeasts that make make fun of the native accent and the people who still have it (“Fobs”)?
Filipino Pride isn’t just about Manny Pacquiao and lumpia. It’s more than that. It’s about respecting your roots and your culture. That means respecting your parents and not making fun of people who came here from the Philippines just because they have “fob” accents.
I’m not saying us young Filipinos should stop being influenced by the culture here in America, I do believe that we have to adapt to this country a bit. I’m not saying that we should all learn Tagalog. Go ahead and be white washed and Americanized if you want, but at least have some respect and awareness about your homeland and it’s history instead of carelessly disregarding it. That’s the least you could do if you still have some care in the world about your own blood.
My gf and I are babysitting 5 kids right now and there’s this weird ass little 9 year old. I swear, he’s so fuckin weird. He’s a little kid, but he has these smartass adult characteristics about him. Hella creepy. Lol.
It’s kind of interesting how some food can be more expensive than others just because of the kind of ethnic flavor it is.
For example: Chinese food is normally really cheap; Thai, Italian and Japanese is a little more expensive, and French cuisine is typically priced high.
I can understand the prices being higher if the ingredients used in the dish were actually expensive, hard to gather, and time consuming to prepare/cook, but my girl and I go to a lot of different types of cultural restaurants and I always see expensive meals on the menu that I could easily make for a quarter or half the price. I guess that’s just the amateur chef in me thinking since I love to cook so much.
You add the word “French” to something, and people will be willing to pay more for it. Not a complaint, though, because I do love eating out all the time. I just thought it was intriguing how something so easy to make can be sold for so much.
I’ll most likely forget your name a couple minutes (or even seconds) after you tell it to me.
Sometimes, when I introduce myself to people I won’t even bother to pay attention when they reply with what their name is. I just tell them my name is Oliver (or O.D.) and then when they say their name I just let it go through one ear and out the other.
I don’t know why, but I’m just like that.
There are only two times when I remember a person’s name.
When I talk to them more and realize that the person is actually pretty dope/interesting. Once I become aware that this is a person who I like, I usually say something along the lines of, “Oh btw, what’s your name again? My bad, I’m forgetful with names”. That way I could get the name again and remember this time.
If it’s a girl who I think is hella cute. If I’m attracted the moment I meet her I’ll make sure to remember her name, so I could add her on FB afterwards if I already haven’t gotten her number. (But since I have a gf now, this part of the list is irrelevant).
Hello! I just wanted to say that from reading your posts, I think you and your girlfriend are such a lovely couple. I think that the fact that you two are always baking together is really cute too. Best wishes to you both! (:
