The best stories are the ones we cannot tell…

Whether it be shame, mischief, or illegal activity, many of us have stories we can’t openly admit, especially on the internet. Sure, there’s probably not someone watching us and chances are the cops aren’t really that invested in our lives… *waves high to my assigned NSA agent* there’s nothing more stupid than admitting to a crime via social media.

When your boyfriend cuts off your feet *cries*

I want to play a game.

And hopefully you’ve noticed by now, this OOTD has nothing to do with this post. But I feel fabulous regardless.

Comment telling me what type of story you can’t tell, using one word for each:

“Illegal” for, obviously, things that might get you arrested if you’re paranoid like me.

“Embarrassing” for, obviously, really embarrassing stories you’d rather forget.

“Scary” for stories that freak you out too much to recall.

“Paranormal” a subcategory of scary, anything paranormal or supernatural that you’d never like to revisit.

“Upsetting” for stories that are too traumatic or depressing.

“Stupid” things that you’ll never admit that you did, because you don’t want anybody to know the depth of your stupidity.

“Friends/family,” basically, your friends or family follow you on social media and somehow keep finding your alternate accounts. Or even worse, your friends parents added you on Facebook.

 

Obviously, we all have stories that would probably fit into all these categories but I’m talking about the creme of the crop, the worst, the cringiest, the most horrifying. Also, feel free to come up with categories I missed. 

I’ll go first: Illegal, embarrassing.

Your turn!

 (pretty please, or this post will be really awkward.)

Aries are the best, sorry: a haul

Fuck paying retail.

What’s up people? It’s KNURLY. Your friendly neighborhood type-A, fiery, mental, and stubborn Aries. By the time this post goes up, I suspect it will be way past Aries season (yup, I was right). If not, good on me for keeping up with my blog. Anyway, I did way too much shopping around my birthday and so of course I need to share it with you. Listen, I haven’t posted any full thrift hauls yet, so you don’t know what a cheap-ass I really am. Some of these prices hurt – but trust me, I’m still the queen of deals.

But first: Let’s talk about how this is the day that my bank card was getting declined. You can read more about that here. But just imagine you’re trying to find something cute and you have to drive all the way home to grab the $140 bucks you never deposited in your bank account (due to laziness). But hey, I guess my laziness paid off this time. You also have no idea if your account is simply frozen because of you or because someone tried to suck it dry and that’s terrifying.

Anyway…With only 40 minutes before the mall closed, I finally gave in and joined my friend at Urban Outfitters. I can’t disguise my disdain for some of their controversies and business practices – so we’re not even going to go there. These were 40% off clearance.

OOTD: Refusing to grow up + embarrassing myself on the internet

Of course, embarrassment requires shame, a characteristic of which I am lacking. I may look like an adult, drive, attend college, and file taxes, but that doesn’t mean I ever grew up. It started out as an innocent walk through a park in an attempt to kill time before my evening plans, that is, until I realized I could force my friend into taking OOTD photos for me. It was quite gloomy that day unfortunately.

But then came the playground which I could not keep myself off. Don’t worry, there were no kids here…besides me.
