She’s Such A Slut (oh my god)

Today, a boy came

Up to me and told me

One of my best friends

Was a slut.

I don’t think I’ll ever

Talk to him again.

She’s a smart, funny,

Amazing, sociable person;

But the one thing he notices,

The one thing he brings to

My attention as if I care:

She’s a slut.

It makes me wonder,

It truly does, how just about

Everyone thinks it’s okay to

Make other’s private matters,

Their business. No, you don’t

Have the right to create an

Opinion on something that

Doesn’t affect you and hurts

Someone else in the process.

No one realizes how much it

Hurts someone when their

Friends, the people they thought

They could trust, whisper

Behind their back, and sometimes

In front of their face: she’s such a

Slut, oh my god.

And it’s funny, it truly is,

How when a guy dates a lot of

Girls: he’s such a player, woah,

Mad, how’s he do that, shit,

Congrats.

But hey, when a girl just even

Talks to a lot of guys, it’s all:

She’s such a slut, what the fuck,

She’s banged three guys this

Week, can you believe it?

No, you don’t have the right

To label someone without

Knowing anything about them,

And what if she banged three guys

In a week, how’s that affecting you?

Maybe it was one, maybe five,

Why is it any of your business to

Poke your nose into?

Don’t look at someone and only

See their sexual matters. They’re

More than make out sessions

And blow jobs. You’re more than

Bitching and nosiness. Aren’t you?

HI, IT’S ME, REV!

So after a very very long time, Ebe and I have FINALLY gotten down to doing a collaboration post(!!)

(QUICK STORY: We decided to do one about a year ago but then it got too dragging and we kinda had this huge fight so I got pissed and figured none of us wanted to finish it and deleted that story. Ironically, that story was ABOUT us fighting wow.
((Moral: Don’t write stories about fighting with your bff))

What a strange way to start. But I wholeheartedly agree. 

But… We’re here now so!!! We’ve decided to do the “How Well Do We Know Each Other Challenge”. How this works is that we’ve come up with a bunch of questions that we’re going to answer about each other and once we’re done, each of us will send the other the CORRECT answers. My answers will be in normal font while hers will be pasted in italics.

Prescript (Is it bad I don’t know what a prescript is?): I should do pretty well, considering I know her pretty damn well (I think) let us see, girl 

So lets get straight into this:

Q1) What’s your star sign?

CAPRICORN!!

Good job!! 

Q2) Celebrity Crush?



Uh dammit um… I’m gonna go with Dominique Sherwood because she literally got upset that she didn’t have a Dominique Sherwood in her life.

Okay, first, good answer, and second, IT’S DOMINIC!! Not having a Dominic Sherwood in my life is a very depressing thought, thank you very much. 

Q3) List Of Crushes?

I hate this question.
(Ha my favourite questions so I can trash your disgusting taste in boys.) I hate you. 
1. Stereotypical Jock #1 – SHE WAS OBSESSED WITH HIM! LEGITIMATELY OBSESSED GUYS I KID YOU NOT. It got very very very dramatic at a point and I was what is even happening Oh GOD I WAS NOT OBSESSED!! Okay, maybe a little, but I’m blaming that on eighth grade desperation and all that bad boy/good girl shit on Wattpad. 

2. Stereotypical Jock #2 – This was a considerably smaller crush but seriously man, find some un-jock guys also who aren’t double your height I hate you. This one was better than that one at least(!!)
(SIDE NOTE: Both my idiot best friends had a crush on both of these guys and I still fail to understand why to be very honest) ugh, it’s terrible, why. 


Q4) Know number by heart?



Sort of.. It starts the same way my does (first four numbers are the same) and ends with an 880?

Ay, good job girl. 


Q5) Favourite TV shows?

These questions are super stressful because Ebe has like no particular favourites but I’m going to go with –
a) Pretty Little Liars uh, I mean, I like it and  all but favourite?? 
b) Brooklyn 99 YEEES, best show ever aah. 

You forgot Shadowhunters!!! 
Q6) Harry Potter House?
HUFFLEPUFF ALL THE WAY. Guys. Ebe is the most hufflepuff-est person to ever exist I kid you not.

CORRECT ANSWER!!! HUFFLEPUFF PRIDE!!! 


Q7) If she could live anywhere in the world where would she live?
I THINK I KNOW THIS! CALIFORNIA!!!

California? I mean, yes, I’d love to live there but more New York City, whatta cliche.
Q8) Favourite social media?
You’re literally on like 2 so I’m going to go with WhatsApp (Its not even a legit medium but sure boy)

It counts!! ‘Cause if it doesn’t then I have nothing, and that makes me the worst millennial ever.

Q9) Favourite type of music?
Anything that goes #1 to be honest. Cliche max only she is. Only likes hip fast peppy pop songs. I once asked her to name 5 slow songs she liked and she could name ONE. No authenticity whatsoever ugh (jk ily)

I am not the trashy pop listener!!! I mean. I am, a little but!!! 

Q10) What’s our song?
DO YOU GUYS KNOW THAT SONG FROM BARBIE AND DIAMOND CASTLE?!?! Connected! That’s our song, holy shit. I’m not sure how it became our song but all of a sudden it just was. So there’s this one line in the song that goes “So nothing can break this… nothing can break this… nothing can break this tie” and every time it came on I’d pull the earphones out of her ear to show a broken tie. She would get so annoyed it was hilarious
(This is also my ringtone for her ha)

CONNECTEDDDD PROTECTEDDDD aah I love it

Q11)A topic that stresses her out the most?
The future. Ebe is, 100% of the time, stressed out about her future.

So much stress. It’s decreasing like a little but still!!


Q12) What does she fear?
a) Heights (ironic because she lives on the 9th floor) correct 
b) Being forever alone (?) yesssss legitimate fear 
c) Change (T.E.R.R.F.I.E.D) oh my god don’t get me started 
d) (and again) Future how sad is that 

Q13) Does she have pet peeves?
Uh I’m going with slowwww readers (just because she can read at the speed of light). Also, the terrible terrible Wattpad books she reads. They have such crappy storylines and crappy characters but she still reads them, (god only knows why) and is continuously complaining about them.

Slow readers are so annoying, I mean are you not into the book or something. Wattpad books!! They’re so addictively bad, I love it.

Now over to Ebe to answer these questions lol
Also, Ebe did the same thing on my blog, check it out!!!

I was helping my sis make chocolate cheesecake. I really really want to eat it.

5.) what is the last thing you watched on TV?

F.R.I.E.N.D.S ’cause why not. Millionth rewatch, I’m not even kidding.

6.) without looking, guess what time it is.

4:15ish in the afternoon?

7.) now look at the clock–what time is it?

4:47, ay not bad, good job me.

8.) with the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

My sister reading out puns and this Hindi song, Raabta, it’s actually beautiful. Deepika Padukone heart eyes emoji.

10.) do you like fish?

Fish tastes weird. It tastes like the sea, if that makes any sense, I hate it.

11.) mac or pc?

I’m too poor for a mac, pc all the way.

12.) do you remember your dreams?

It’s really rare but whenever I do remember, I remember my nightmares? And they’re all related to natural disasters? I don’t quite understand it, it’s really weird.

13.) when did you last laugh?

Just some time ago.

14.) do you remember why/what at?

My sis and I were seeing who could throw the most cheesecake packets into utensils. She won, I was very annoyed.

 15.) have you ever been to canada?

When I was like 7? All I remember is the restaurant and this street near the hotel which faced the Niagara falls. So prettyy.

16.) shoes, socks, or bare feet?

 Bare feet. Wearing shoes and socks takes way too much time.

17.) do you wear perfume?

Never, actually, but I love how perfumes smell, sometimes I spray them on my wrists.

18.) what is the last film you saw?

Everything, Everything. It wasn’t bad actually. I recommend it. The book’s better however.

25.) what do you think of these questions so far?

I like them! It’s a lot of fun answering.

 26.) are you a righty or a lefty?

LEFTY!! Statistically, it means that I’ll die earlier but according to my friend, that’s only said because in older times, at war, soldiers would hold shields with their left hands, to cover their hearts and they would fight with their right hands. But lefties would hold their shield with their right hands, hence leaving their hearts unprotected and they’d die more easily. According to this, I won’t actually die earlier so, yay.

27.) who made the last incoming call on your phone?

Rev for half an hour? Whatta dramatic boy she is.

Uh, I don’t really like classical music, it’s so slow.

Always. Clarity by Zedd featuring Foxes. I love it. You are the piece of me I wish I didn’t need..

32.) what’s your favorite color?

Purple! Okay, this has a backstory. A really bad one but nonetheless. When I was a kid, in school, there was this whole concept of boy colours and girl colours which annoyed the shit out of me. Being the tiny egalitarian I was, I rebelled against the whole system by taking a boy colour (blue) and a girl colour (red) and combining them to make my favourite colour (purple).

33.) is there anything you’re disappointed about?

That rape is a thing.

34.) what was the last thing you bought?

I honestly cannot remember.

35.) sun or rain?

Rain! The smell, the atmosphere and ’cause I live on the ninth floor, the wind is magnificent. The only downside’s that we hang our clothes outside in the balcony, so a lot of times they just fly away.

I’m scared of heights, so none, thank you very much.

37.) what’s your zodiac sign?

Capricorn!!

38.) what’s your hair color?

It’s really dark brown, but not black.

39.) what quote do you live by?

Happily ever after, or even just together ever after is not cheesy,’ Wren said. ‘It’s the noblest, like, the most courageous thing two people can shoot for.'”

This quote’s from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I just really really love it. It gives me hope? Like it’ll all be okay, it gets better.

40.) what’s your favorite zoo animal?

I like zebras and lions and tigers and giraffes and hippos.

used to. Not anymore however and it makes me sad.

Brown.

Screw rape culture 

You’re just minding your own business, shoving your books in your locker, you have English next with your best friend. A junior passes by and smiles at you, you smile back. 
A senior boy who you’ve seen around walks up to you and plainly says,” Hi.”

You return the greeting, confused as to why he’s talking to you. 
“I’ve seen you around and you’re really really really hot and I was wondering if you’d go out with me?” His voice pitches higher as he ends.
Your eyes widen, you’ve literally never talked to this guy before. Sure, he seems like a nice enough guy but. 
“Oh, uh, I’m sorry, I, I’d rather not, sorry. I don’t really know you, so.”
And yeah, you expect him to just nod, a little disappointedly perhaps and leave. 

But he just stands there and you’re not sure if you’re supposed to wait for him to go. So you close your locker, zip up your bag and grab onto your backpack straps, hoping he’ll take a hint. But he’s still standing there, just looking at you and your class is going to start in ten minutes so you turn to leave ‘cause priorities. He grabs your arm and your eyebrows fly up. Hell no, he did not just touch you. He suddenly pulls you back and your breath is knocked out as your back hits his chest. Hell friggin no. 
You step in front, pulling your arm out from his grip and swivel around to face the asshole. He opens his mouth, possibly to give a trashy useless explanation and you will not let him speak. You make a fist, clench your teeth, pull your arm back and punch him in the nose. There’s a satisfying crack and someone somewhere screams. There’s blood gushing out of his nose, he’s grabbing onto it yelping like a dog; people are rushing up to you, some yelling, some high fiving you. 

You step back from the crowd and inspect your hand calmly to make sure his thick head didn’t bruise you. 
A teacher pushes her way through the crowd and runs towards the Asshole. She calls out for someone to get the principal. The Asshole is taken to the infirmary and the teacher tells you to ‘calm down and think about what you just did for violence is never the answer.’ 
The principal pushes his way through the crowd, his pinstripe suit and bald head shining. He looks at you, his head cocked as if wondering how such a small girl did such damage. “You. Explain to me what happened.”
And so you do, leaving no detail out. He nods along, his expression getting tighter and tighter. You assume he’s going to do something to the Asshole and you pull up your bag so you can leave but then he says, “You should’ve heard him out, he didn’t actually hurt you. Your response was quite inappropriate and unnecessary.”
Your eyes widen as he goes on. Unnecessary? Inappropriate?! Didn’t actually hurt you? 
You’re bewildered that a well educated man, the principal of a co-ed school actually thinks like that.
“I’m sorry, unnecessary? Inappropriate? If anything, your attitude is unnecessary. I’m presuming you’re well educated so you can’t possibly be telling me it’s my fault that boy grabbed my arm. He came into my personal space, he touched me without my permission and you’re saying I should’ve heard him out? If this is honestly your attitude, you should quit teaching forever because all you’re doing is teaching girls to take harassment and assault without saying anything and to be quiet victims and teaching boys that it’s okay to touch girls against their will. Which it is not. In a murder case, you don’t blame the victim. Why is it you blame them in a rape case?” — Gasps are heard. — “Men like you are why there are a quarter of a million rape cases reported annually. And that’s only reported. Who knows how many women are too scared to go to police in fear of their lives or the lives of their loved ones? Men like you are why we don’t feel safe to walk alone at night.” —You point at his face.— “Men like you are why my mum taught me how to punch people properly. Screw rape culture.”

Explaining to your mom why her daughter has been sent home early is a little hard, but by the end she’s smiling, a little teary and she hugs you, kissing your forehead. “How about we go out for some ice cream, eh?”

A Letter To My School

Dear you,

Thank you for everything. Thank you for being my home and something I always look forward to. Thank you for moulding me into me. Thank you for supporting me throughout and showing me where I went wrong. Thank you for giving me another family.

You’ve taught me a variety of lessons, most of which can’t be learned from a textbook.You’ve taught me how to shoot for the stars and follow my dreams; how to stand up for what I believe in and be who I am unabashedly; how to lead and take responsibility. Continue reading “A Letter To My School”

1.0

I’ve been ignoring them for quite some time and I’m not exactly sure why.

They’re getting on my nerves for some reason. My feed’s been taken over by pictures from that stupid trip and I honestly wants to block everyone, so that they all just go away.

It was a fun trip. I’d had so so so much fun and I had a bagful of memories to prove it. Continue reading “1.0”
