Evaluation on BARBIES.

This blog post will reveal a side of me a lot of people haven't seen before. Well, I wouldn't consider it a "wild" side, but more of a post that contains my honest thoughts and opinions of my happy childhood memories. Hahaha. And don't worry, it's nothing bad. It's just a little.... strange and out of the ordinary in some ways. But you'll understand me after you finish reading this post, haha. Trust me.

We've all played with them. We can remember keeping at least one barbie doll sometime during our childhood memories, right? Well, barbie dolls have been around for a long time. Barbies are like toys for little girls [sadly even to some boys] because you can dress them up with accessories and clothes that come along the package. To young kids, it's just fun having to glam-up miniature human figures, and give make overs. Barbies come in all colors, each with styles of clothing, make up, and purpose. I mean, hasn't everyone enjoyed playing with their favorite barbie doll at the time when they were 5 years old? Come on, you have to admit it. Or to some boys, haven't you enjoyed ripping the heads off of your younger sister's barbie dolls, and see the disasterous reactions? All in all, barbies will probably remain for a very long time because so many young girls grow up playing with them during their childhood years.

Now that I've grown up, I've gotten a taste of the real world and I've turned my head away from such childish things like barbies. I just laugh at the idea of playing with barbies, and brushing their hair with a miniature plastic comb. But.... I've come to realize how barbies have really been a big part of my childhood. When I was a little girl, I remember collecting barbie dolls and giving each and everyone of them names. I remember giving turns, sleeping with Stacie & Molly [my two favorite dolls]. Those really were some good times. Although now I've lost interest in such things and it seems silly to play with barbies at the age of 15, I have to admit if I were ever given the chance to go back in time... it would be the times when I was 5 years old, sitting in a large circle with my friends and making stories with our barbie dolls. The times when my friends and I would exchange dolls, and admire how beautiful our dolls looked. Those were the days. Overall, I think I'm starting to appreciate not just barbies.... but all dolls, toys, and even video games a lot more. Why? Because they've all played a big role in everyone's childhood. So next time I go to Target and see plastic barbies in boxes, I solemnly swear that I will smile and think of all the good memories I had. I won't scoff at the miniature plastic figures and I won't say to myself, "Gosh, someone needs to grow up" because I know that everyone only has one opportunity to be a kid. And everyone has had something embarrassing or immature to hide from their childhood anyway, hahaha. GO BARBIES! Hahahhaha. [Yes believe, it SAID IT!]

*I hope I'm representing all the girls out there that have had experiences with barbies! :)

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Marriage Evaluation.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt formed their relationship in the set of the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith, when Pitt was married to Jennifer Anniston. Pitt & Anniston's marriage lasted from July 29th, 2000 to October 5th, 2005. As Jolie & Pitt worked on the movie together, they denied having a romantic involvement. Soon they were spotted holding hands, and flirting with each other from pictures. Later on as the public slowly found out the relationship between Pitt & Jolie and things turned out to be obvious, Pitt divorced Anniston for Jolie. Now, the new couple have 6 children together while Jennifer Anniston has been on and off in relationships, with no steady marriage.

Evaluation & Thoughts:
In my opinion, I thought Brad Pitt was so inconsiderate and immature to cheat against Jennifer Anniston. These days, people take marriage so lightly and celebrities are setting the worst examples to society. Are they even aware that young children look up to them, just from a picture on a cover magazine, or from a young artist's song they heard on the radio? It doesn't take much for people to be inspired by another individual, but it's just as easy to drop them and become dissapointed.

I have no sympathy to understand Angelina and Brad's position. If Pitt was committed to being a life-long husband and lover to Anniston, he never should've taken the marriage into consideration. What was he even thinking? And what was up with Jolie? I mean, even though Brad Pitt is attractive... he's a TAKEN man, and he's already a part of another womans' life.

What makes this couple look even more ridiculous is that they've been staying together for years, they've had kids, and are living "happily ever after." Don't they realize how they're hurting Jennifer and giving negative, nasty impression towards their fans? I literally gagged when I found out that Jolie stated that she wanted to show her first movie, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" to let her children see when and where their parents' romance began. That is absolutely ridiculous. These 2 are so selfish. I mean, couldn't Pitt have divorced for any other reason, than THIS? Or at least had an affair with some other girl than ANGELINA JOLIE?

What's even more absurd is that in an affair, there's always one person that is being the bigger, "better person" in the situation. But in this case, both of them are too caught up with their own love, and they're both the same. Same as in inconsiderate, clueless, and ignorant. Pitt had no reasonable excuse to divorce Anniston. It's not like both of them worked hard to make things work, because one person [Brad pitt] was always out of the relationship.

People these days... especially celebrities drive me off the wall. I'm not really involved nor am I that interested in celebrities and the "latest news" but THIS was something that definitely caught my attention.

I feel so bad for Jennifer Anniston. If Brad Pitt & Angelina were even human or had any good inside of them.... they should at least live their lives knowing that they're sorry, or be ashamed of their hurtful actions.

I sound harsh in this evaluation of their marriage, but this is something that I would never be able to tolerate. All in all, if I were their parents.... I would never agree to this marriage partially because it would negatively effect too many people.

House Chores.

Creative Writing Prompt # 72: Write about a task, job or chore you dislike.

She yelled at me again. I shut the door in her face and plummeted onto my bed, as I pressed the soft pillow tight against my ears to block off the endless lectures. Once again, my mom was telling me to walk the dog. To clean the dishes, to wash the clothes, and clean my room. I had enough, and I wasn't going to deal with her blabbering. Everyone in my family knew I absolutely hated doing the house chores, and they knew if I had the choice between jumping off a 100 foot cliff and doing the house chores, I'd most definitely jump off the bridge. I mean, why not have a little adventure in your life, then doing something so plain and boring? I hear my siblings behind the door, with every hit on the door BANG BANG! "Come downstairs, mom is wanting you to-" and inside, I think, "Great, not again." Everyday, I get home, do homework, and have to do the housechores. I don't think my friends or anyone could have so many things to do as much as I do. So when I get out of the house and make a family one day, I won't give my kids chores because I've been in their place. I will know how annoying and painful it is to go through such boredom. Chores are a bore.
