I’m about 8 minutes into Smashed and I can’t believe how uncomfortably close to to my life it is. Well, my life before I got 99% sober. I may have to turn it off because she just started singing karaoke and, more specifically, the song I used to sing at karaoke. Real, real badly and super, supes drunkenly, usually at WInnie’s but sometimes at Planet Rose, and no one ever knew it. Which could have been my fault due to my musical taste, or, you know, slurring.
That aside, it’s really good. You should watch it.
The breakdancing one is my fave.
WAIT NOW I GET IT
Drive It Like You Stole It: Be the best. That is, assuming that you are the best. Be the best you can possibly be, whatever that means to you. Absolutely do not step down in order to not threaten people. Don’t apologize. If you genuinely fucked up fine, you are allowed to apologize once but then stop apologizing. Think about how much you hear women apologizing for themselves for no reason, or being self-deprecating or self-abnegating out of habit. What the fuck are you apologizing for? For being too good?
REQUIRED READING FOR LIFE
Forever my girl.
