Let me tell you something about the way that I blog. There are blogs that I *try* to read every day. These show up as little icons on my bookmarks bar and while I wish I could get to them every day, it’s just impossible and I can accept reality. I at least get to them by the end of the week. Then, there are blogs that I love, but I can’t get to them every day sometimes not even every month. I go months and sometimes up to half-a-year before I read them again. But I’m OCD so trust that I will go back and read all the way up to the last piece of content that I left off of. I do that by writing the date in which I last checked that blog next to the URL of all blogs that I keep on a separate notepad on my laptop. It’s crazy, okay?
Anyways, the last time I posted about “The Blind Leading the Blind,” it was last June. What I love about Alexi Wasser is that she serves some healthy doses of realness. These are all the thoughts that I sometimes have, but can’t say out loud or in writing because my parents will be upset with me and like maybe I could potentially get in trouble somehow? or even scarier, my friends will never look at me the same again. What we do is we re-post and we let Alexi take the credit for all of these things because she’s a genius anyways. There have been several “The Blind Leading the Blind” posts since last June so here’s a round-up, but also here are some pieces of truth from those posts that we feel okay with summarizing for you here:
- 1. let people miss you. give them that gift.
- 2. hey stream of consciousness texters, how about you fit ALL the info you want to express in ONE chunky text! The beeps from you fucking texting me are making me hate you!
- 6. you should never text someone if you can’t handle them NOT responding.
- 1. don’t treat people like a priority who treat you like an option.
