It’s widely known that I love pink. Actually, I don’t only love pink. I LOVE pink. I also love bows, ribbons, tiaras, rhinestones and handsome vampires. In the summer I wear skirts/dresses to work everyday, complete with heels. I have had long hair for six years, and I intend to keep it this way. I love playing with my hair and makeup. I want to have round eyes and big lashes.
All in all, my style is very feminine, varying along the line of Jess on New Girl (if I wanna look casual and cute) to Katherine Pierce on The Vampire Diaries (if I wanna look cool and sexy).
With that said, my personality is far from feminine and delicate. I’m bubbly and bold and larger than life. I have many unfeminine traits that sometimes make me feel like an outsider in female cliques:
- I hate shopping with others. I don’t understand why other women like to shop in groups. Why must one seek validation from others in shopping? Why do I need shopping buddies when I have the internet as backup and most importantly, good taste? If I like it, I buy it. I won’t listen to my friend and not buy something if I think I look awesome in it.
- I never ever go to the toilet accompanied by others on purpose. That’s the dumbest and grossest thing ever. What if I wanna poop? What’s the deal with chatting while we are all peeing? That’s so unnatural. It also makes me feel self conscious if I wanna touch up my makeup or my hair. I don’t want my friend to wait for me when I’m perfecting my lipgloss or relining my eyes. I guess when we were little we were all afraid of the “monster” in the bathroom, but I don’t understand why grownup women still feel the need to go the bathroom in groups.
- I enjoy dining out by myself. It’s so much easier to get seats when you go solo in the city during lunch time! I also get to have some me time and not have to talk to anyone for an hour. Although I’m generally a chatterbox, sometimes I just wanna be left alone to recharge and reorganize my thoughts. Eating alone also cuts meal time tremendously and makes the entire process more time efficient.
- I am very, very messy or can even be classified as gross. I have very low standards of personal hygiene, which really surprise people because I’m seem so well put together. My hair and makeup are usually done right (unless I overslept). They match my outfit and shoes. However, my room is literally a dumpster. I need to change my outfits at least three times before I can leave the apartment everyday. Do you really expect me to hang them up after every trial? I just throw them on my bed, and when I go to bed, I move them to the chair, like a vicious cycle until it reaches the point when they still falling on the ground. Even so, sometimes I fail to pick up stuff that I’ve dropped until I need it, and I can live with not changing my sheet or vacuuming my room for months.
- I don’t brush my teeth or wash my face unless I’m going out, but I do shower once a day.
- I don’t like body lotion. I know many women love body lotion cuz it smells so delicious, but I’m just too lazy for it. I only put lotion on when my skin gets too dry that I start inching.
- I’m not into nail art. It also surprises people because girly girls tend to be very into nail art. Yea, I think they look cute, but I’m not a trophy wife who doesn’t do anything all day. I work and my work involves a lot of typing, so long nails are a big no-no. Plus, I hate it when my thumb nail gets so long that it pokes me when I write. I also can’t be bothered to repaint my nail every week.
- I don’t buy things I don’t need just because it’s on sale. Enough said.
- I don’t like talking behind someone’s back unless that person has wronged me. Instead, I like glorifying people who are nice to me.
- I don’t like reading instructions. I feel like I’m smarter than most people. Manuals are decided for them, not for me.
But there is some thing very very feminine about me.
- I’m as stupid as the next girl when it comes to love. PhD or not, we all love handsome vampires. 🙂
