- You have to buy designer clothes or labels in order to be deemed fashionable or stylish.
- Anyone that does not have these labels, you are a disgrace to fashion and style.
- Those that don't have labels are rednecks/ ignorant.
- Once you shop at one brand store(like American Eagle, Abercrombie, Aeropostle, etc) it's bad to shop at the other, you have to stick with that one brand.
- You can only have one style
You get the idea. I will first begin by talking about the first one.
#1, 2, &3
These are pratically the same, so I put them under one heading.
- Do I like Designer clothers? Yes
- Do I like lables? Yes
- Do I have a few designer clothing? Yes
- How did I get the labels? Either always on sale or as a special gift. I don't ask my parents or my boyfriend to get me stuff thats over a certain price. That way I know they got something for me on sale. I don't mind it in the least.
- Do I shop at stores like American Eagle, Aeropostle, etc? Yes
- Do I only shop there? No
- Do I shop at places like Walmart, target, and even goodwill? yes :)
- Do I think it is important to have labels & designer clothes in order to be fashionable? NO
You see there are many average people out there that cannot afford designer labeled clothes. They can't, they shop at places like walmart, target and goodwill stores. Seriously why the heck would you spend $35 on a tshirt? I am a college student without a job right now, I am not going to go out and spend money to try to impress someone. Granted I am coming from a perspective of not having a lot of money and if I did have a lot of money I would probably decide if I really liked that shirt or not before getting it.
You can just get as many fashionable stylish things from the places I mentioned above. Are they high end,no. But guess what most of the clothes out there look the same,and if I ripped off the label from the clothing would you be able to tell which store it came from. I bet only maybe 10% percent of you could ( I'm taking into account that there are many fashionistas out there that stalk the fashion magazines like Twilight fans stalk Robert Pattison or Taylor Lautner).
Just because there is not label, it does not mean it is not fashionable.
Also the fact that people are not considered fashionable or stylish unless they have these labels is absolutly absurd. Just like I mentioned above how the heck are you going to honestly know if it is a label.
And to call the people that can't afford ignorant or disgusting of anything of that nature... well that is just plain nasty and rude.
To say that you have to only shop at one special store and you have to remain faithful to it, that is like saying that you will eat only at one restaurant and stick to that one.
And the last is that apparently you can't have more than one style.
I find this one very hard, simply because of the fact that I like all different kinds of clothing that I enjoy, there are many styles I want to convey. The reason everyone is complex, no one is fully preppy, goth, classic, etc. I like some clothing, some would consider gothic others preppy....I am a complex person so my style reflects that. I don't know why a person has to have one style.
Maybe it is to make it their signature, but your clothes should not define you. You wear the clothes, not the other way around.
I don't know... it just seems all silly to me at times.

So I'm trying to get away from talking about all the dead animals for a moment, for there hasn't been any new development.
- Do they want to talk to me?
- Do they still like me?
- Will they just ignore me?
- Are they upset at me about not calling me after so long?
- Do they think I'm weird?

Yes this is random but I am very excited, for the blogger of Book Chick City's Stephen King Challenge I will be first reading The Shining! Yes this is random, but I am very excited. I will probably reading Christine after that too (it will be very weird since that is my name, but oh well).
I have a secret to share with all of you, would you like to know?

I have been quite busy these past few months. As a result I have only been able to finish reading books and not actually write the reviews for them. I would space out the reviews, but I don't know when I will be able to next and I do not want to procrastinate on this. Otherwise I will get behind, feel guilty and get back into a pattern where I feel terrible and awful and etc.
So I will probably writing more than one post a day, just to get it out of the way. I know that sounds bad, but I do just want to get it done.

My first book review for this year!
Title: How to become a Famous Writer before you're Dead
Author: Ariel Gore
Number of Pages: 288
Publisher: Three Rivers Press
Genre: Writing Reference
I remember this when I picked it up from McKay's (an amazing used books, music, movies and more store that exists in Tennessee). The title is what caught my eye. After all I want to become famous for something before I die, not after. I want to reap some of the benefits from my hard work.
It is an enjoyable book, with exercises and interviews from authors. Granted I have not heard of most of these authors, but I think that was her point, to expose us to authors that we have never heard of and to give the authors more publicity.
Before I found this book while wondering through McKay's I had never heard of Ariel Gore. My first thought that occurred when I came across this book was, 'What right does this person have to write a book about becoming famous writer when I have never heard of them?'
I have been proven wrong, somewhat. No, she is not famous like J.K. Rowling or Stephenie Meyer. But she gives great advice that is very beneficial that does not give way to the old idea that it takes luck and chance to become famous.
Her whole idea is that if you want to become a famous writer, you have to work and work hard. Work your butt off. Writing, like everything is a job she said throughout the book and you have to spend a great amount of time dedicating to doing your job. Yes,the benefits are not as quick as with other tasks and other jobs but nevertheless it is necessary.
In the book she discusses everything for those that are beginners, tips on how not to procrastinate, self-publishing (yes such a thing exists), to everything else in between. The most important thing is this, write and get your name out there. And no, I am not talking about taking the Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton way. It involves sending in comments to newspapers, magazines, etc. Writing for school newspapers, literary magazines, etc.
I had no problems with this book. My only hope is that she comes out with a book of writing prompts and exercises.
This is a definite read for anyone who wants to become a famous writer.
