don't be a drag, just be a queen ♕  
...'Cause baby, you were born this way.

Firstly, Lady Gaga is fabulous.

Secondly, I had to explain to my brother this week what a drag queen is. He gave me a blank stare over our clams and spaghetti. I had told him don't be a drag, just be a queen, and he replied with some snooty remark that all twelve-year-olds remark with. I asked if he even knew what a drag queen was. And thus the explanation ensued.

Which transitioned into a conversation about being fabulous. For 2011, I told myself that no matter what, I would always be fabulous. People start drama? Be fabulous. Teachers give me attitude? Be fabulous. Lady Gaga shows the world what being fabulous is all about? Be. Fabulous.

This is the entire story of my life. BE. FABULOUS.

Finally realized what career I want to pursue. So, I've recently discovered that I love to design things. No, not like dresses or clothes or something. I'm thinking more along the lines of graphic design. Therefore, I want to go into advertising. But, after talking to my art teacher (who teaches my graphic design class), I discovered that the graphics part might require art school or something and that requires a portfolio and that means I'd have to take art. And I have no drawing skills at all. So then I decided to round out the career choice a bit more

Since I love to talk, I could go into the business portion of it. But, my sister said the advertisement world is very competitive, my dad is only concerned about how much the job makes annually, and my mom is like sure okay just do whatever. The idea is very premature, of course, but I honestly feel so passionate about this. You have no idea.

On to other things.

For Lent, I gave up junk food. And for the first two days, I've been handling myself quite well. No sweets, just corn flakes. Not kidding. My snacks have been pretzels and a cup of corn flakes. It's actually very appetizing. Anyway, at school, it was Sister Grace's, the principal's, birthday. And the cafeteria lady made a big, beautiful cake, and I wanted a piece so bad. SO BAD.

BUT I RESISTED. I was so proud of myself. But everyone else at the lunch table got a piece and looked especially happy eating away. So I munched my pretzels like:

Our parents are exactly the same as yours! We want to take creative writing and English because we want to be authors and work in publishing/editing. Our dad was like yeah but what kind of money will you make? Then there's our mom who doesn't care what we do as long as we're happy. I would never have been able to resist that birthday cake! At least you had pretzels though! :)

I'm almost positive that all parents respond to children in the same way. It's, like, inevitable or something. I think they want us to pick a job that pays well just so we don't end up moving back in with them. xD

And pretzels. Oh gosh I wouldn't be able to survive without them. ♥

ahahah I think you might be right about that! Pretzels are such a simple snack, but oh so good! ♥_♥

Be Fabulous should be the name of your LJ. Or your bumper sticker ;)

And if you love designing things, I don't think you really need to major in art or go to art school so long as you have a portfolio to show people -- like graphic/webpage design for instance, you can just print the images or direct people to a website. That worked for me when I interviewed for a PR internship.

Besides advertising, have you considered marketing in general? It might be a good idea to read up on the industry first before choosing to specialize :)

BUMPER STICKER. Yessss. I'm getting that made ASAP.

I did do a little research on marketing vs. advertising, but it's all pretty much up in the air as of late. But, I totally agree with you. Definitely need to look into it more, which will happen eventually. Hopefully before I actually pick a major. :)
