It’s time to pour my heart out, via Mamarazzi’s Friday Confessional.
I confess…that I watched some of The X Factor over the past few weeks. I told myself I wouldn’t, because who the hell needs Simon Cowell when you’ve got STEVEN TYLER BABY!!!! That’s right, I was going to be faithful to American Idol and boycott The X Factor. But curiosity got the best of me. And honestly? I saw enough good stuff that I’ll definitely be tuning back in for the boot camp episodes coming up.
I confess…that one of the guys I’ll be keeping my eye on is Nick Voss. He was the first contestant that really impressed me. And he sang an Elvis song, “Trouble”. I’m sure you’ll be able to figure out why he charmed me…
I confess…I could look at those dark puppy dog eyes all day.
I confess…that I actually ate and ENJOYED the “Smart” KD this week. I wouldn’t exactly call it “health food”, but I guess if you’re jonesing for KD, as I do from time to time, it’s better to eat the “Smart” kind. Right?
I confess…I wish they made a “Smart” poutine. Or a “Smart” hot dog. How about a “Smart” Big Mac? I need to get somebody on this.
I confess…that I’m enjoying the book I’m currently reading, Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult - but it’s disturbing me. It’s a heart-breaking story in general (about a high school shooting), but I can’t stop thinking about this one part. There’s a flashback on the “villain”, Peter, at age 5. So excited to get on the school bus with his new Spiderman lunch kit, so excited for his first day of school. Within minutes of getting on the bus, he’s bullied and the other boys throw his lunch box out the window. It breaks my heart every time I think about it.
I confess…that if I ever have kids, I might have to home school them.
I confess…that while I was never one of the cool kids in school, and I was bullied sometimes, I often think of this one time when I was the bully, and I so regret it. Our class went skating at an outdoor rink across the road from our elementary school, and there was this boy in my class who was kind of nerdy and he was having trouble on his blades. You know that scene in The Cutting Edge where the figure skating girl makes fun of the dude for having trouble with his toe-pick? Well, I was doing that to this boy. Every time he stumbled past me and fell, I’d shriek, “TOE PICK!!!!” and laugh at him, and he ended up in tears. I could almost cry myself, thinking about it now.
I confess…that the book really has me thinking about bullying and why kids do what they do. There’s no excuse for shooting up a school, but you have to wonder how far some kids are pushed in order for them to do something like that… It scares me.
Okay…so maybe not the most uplifting post I’ve ever written?
But that’s what’s on my mind this Friday. If you’d like to confess, head on over to Mamarazzi’s and link up!
Have a great weekend, everyone…And if you get a chance, do something nice for someone. :)
