Girly Girls (Thanks Rutvi *_*)

So this blog post is inspired by my friend Rutvi. No - no, she's not a girly girl. She just happened to write a blog post on the same topic. Here's a link to that awesomeness. (You're paying me for the publicity, Rutvi :P)
So, anyway. Back to the topic. The first thing that pops into my head when I hear the words "Girly - girl is this :

That's right. PINK -_-
And I happen to associate the colour pink with evil, thanks to a certain Ms. Umbridge. 
That Cow
Basically I think there are two kinds of girls :
The Other Kind
My Kind


Now the other kind - or girly girls, whatever you call  them - are the kinds that are perpetually dressed up in mascaras and stilettos. My kind usually goes about in flip-flops and unwashed tees. Also these girls happen to have a zillion boyfriends, are constantly texting, and most importantly - INDULGE IN SELFIES - AND WORSE, DUCK FACES.
Yeah. Generally their hobby is to point out to you that you mobile cover doesn't match your outfit. (Yes. That happened to a friend of mine :| ) 
I mean, I'm not saying my kind is perpetually in flip-flops. We may dress up once in a while, there may be one selfie in our phones - but our life doesnt revolve around our LBD's and duck faces. There is more to us - we aren't facades. We do not panic if we don't find the exact shade of blueberry that was on the cover of Elle magazine. We don't start crying if our mobile cover isn't exactly hip. Its not the end of the world for us if we chip a nail. 
I'm not degrading girly girls (okay - maybe just a little), but I'm just pointing out the stark differences our kinds have. My kind is generally into - in our eyes - better stuff, like fangirlism and nerdfighteria. You girly girls don't have to join us. But that's it isn't it? We're different.

Week 5, What I'm grateful for

I am not someone who is often grateful or thankful to people so lemme take this opportunity to finally get it over with : 

1. My hands (the presence of them, that is) for allowing me to write and type.
2. My mom - for sacrificing everything, everything for me and my brother
3. Dad - for being the most caring, loving, honest,     trustworthy person I know
4. My sometimes irritating and always a moron brother - for his advice and despite all the teasing and pranks, the fact that he actually cares
5. My two best friends - for being so awesome :P  
6. My ongoing education ( I surprise myself sometimes)
7. For India being a democracy and allowing me to make my own choices and hope fully one day - vote!
8. My blog - for being a collection of my vaguest thoughts
9. Roald Dahl, Ruskin Bond, JKR, and Enid Blyton - I grew up with you guys.
10. My sense of humor - life would've been very hard without it
11. The fact that I can speak my mind and am not afraid of it
12. The fact that I have all senses intact
13. Moffatiss - thanks for Sherlock
14. My current English teacher - for making me realize that I need to be humble

Thank you.
