The Questions of the week: What is the ONE BIG THING I need to focus on this week?
You may be asking why there is a question of the week. It is important to ask yourself questions like these in the week so you may set your goal straight. Without a goal, you are disorganized and all over the place in what you want to do!
This week’s advice column:
“I’m walking into 2019 wearing Gucci Slides with no socks and friends that are faker than my nails. Raise your courser if you too suffer with “stuck-on-snakes” syndrome. Exactly. If you didn’t raise your courser, you’re no fun. If you did, you’re honest and I love that. If you didn’t raise your courser because you “have never had fake friends”, you’re either a psychologist or blind.
Disclaimer: These methods ACTUALLY work.
First, we must recognize this creature. The creature that blends in with the crowd so well, we may have made the mistake of taking them to our birthday party. The creature can be physically identified as having:
- A big mouth
- Fake nails longer than their toes
- Wearing socks with flip-flops
- Bad fashion sense (but always says something about yours because their salty as the buildup between their toes)
- Having all 4 and then some
After identifying what may be the creature, test it. Start by asking how you look. That day you know you ooze style when you come in, ask them how they think you look. If they answer negatively and are insistent you look bad, you know you have your crusty, dusty monster. Lastly, we must initiate “operation do not disturb”. IGNORE THEM AT ALL COSTS. Being a social butterfly myself, I would find this hard. But, recently, I found a way. Think of them as invisible. Don’t even recognize their presence. Pretend you have better things to do- and you do because I know all my readers are BOOKED AND BUSY. Amen! Warning: This can tick them off, especially if you’re talkative. It shows you genuinely don’t care about whatever they have to say. By using this method, you can easily unfriend them and get back to the more important things. Don’t let the fakies book a space in your mind when you have better things to do than think about them. They are irrelevant, and don’t you forget it!
Hey, guess what? You learned something! Congrats, sis~ If you have an issue you personally want me to give advice on, message me on Instagram @makebashangwe or email me at email@example.com, and I’ll be sure to get back with you~
Story Time! This week’s story:
The First Day
Written by Makeba Shangwe
Today, my first day attending Wildwood Middle School, was exciting. The possibility of seeing all the people who I met in elementary school about 3 years ago was high, and the possibility of me having zero friends the first week was also high.
I plastered a nervous smile on my face as I walked into “Ms. Walker’s Band Class.” Everyone turned to look at me. I noticed a good 4 people: Kingston, Makayla, Michael, and Joy.
Kingston (I secretly called him “King Tons” because I was salty) was my ex-short-term-crush. Yes, a mouthful, I know. He was smart, but he acted as stupid as he could with his friends. He was definitely better looking now that he had matured physically. He watched me shuffle nervously to my seat over at the percussion section.
At the end of class, he greeted me. “Hey, Niqo.”
“Why are you talking to me? Boys don’t talk to me.”
My bird heart started beating against my ribs. I smiled, “H-Hey.
Everyone wanted to walk the new girl to her classes. Everyone wanted to talk to the new girl about where she’s from. But, no one wanted to be friends with the new girl. No one except Natasha.
Natasha was prettier than me. She had long, ropes for hair that spilled down her back, and deep brown pools for eyes, umbrella lashes, a beautiful towel wrapped around her body, and smooth but sandy skin. She was a beach; I was an abandoned. Huge difference.
We became good friends that day and suddenly, I felt a little less lonely.
Sweet departure is here, oh nooo!
