Birthday


Well, I'm sorry if I confused any of you in my last post... It did kinda sound like Jonathan and I were twins and we were having our birthday but Jonathan and Justin are my twin bros and they were turning 17.

So, guys. I'm the older sister and I'm celebrating my half birthday in like three days so ya wish me happy half birthday please. Haha I'm totally joking :P But I am gonna be 19 in December so this month technically would be my half birthday.

But ok enough about half birthdays.

Do you know something I don't like? I don't like stereotypes. It's basically putting someone in a box because of a certain label.

Like for example: introverts are suppose to be shy and not like social engagements. While there are many introverts who are like this, there are also many that are not. Same with extroverts.

That's the thing I don't like about stereotypes. They try and figure out what a person's like without getting to know the person. But every person is different.

It's impossible to tell something about a person just by looking at them. People make so many assumptions that just aren't true because they have a stereotype in their heads.

Let's stop assuming we know something about someone and instead get to know people without stereotypes blinding our view.

  3. HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY JONATHAN AND JUSTIN, AND HAPPY HALF-BIRTHDAY, ASHLEY! :D

    Gah, stereotypes. Totally with you there. I like getting to know someone before I know a lot about them, because then I'm not making assumptions! :)
    By the way, your cards are awesome. <3

  4. Haha thanks, Amanda!

    Yes, when I don't know someone very well, I find myself making assumptions about them that are normally wrong.

    Thanks for dropping by!
