Why So Serious?

It’s always been a bit of a paradox why I choose sometimes to come across so seriously. Truthfully, I am anything but! I tend to be very sarcastic, irreverent, and perhaps even crude at times.

I have long had a bad habit of rubbing people the wrong way while trying to:

  1. Make them laugh 
  2. Be lovey and compassionate

Turns out a lot of people are just proper jerks! 

But, what’s happened over the years is I’ve become very withdrawn. I occasionally let loose my true colors – black and blue are my faves – but then I retreat again. I have a hard time being consistent. 

In this age of social media and content overload, you have to be loud, consistent, and relevant. I’m very good at being loud. The latter two, perhaps, not so much. 

I’m ancient, at 33. I can’t keep up with y’all gorgeous mares and stallions parading across the digitized social landscape at warp speeds. I’m just little old Amelia, knitting with my little crafty hooks, like a prose spitting grandma (now there’s a word picture for ya!)

Ok, I’m just playing. But most of y’all are barely into your twenties and some still in your late teens. And you are rocking the world! I guess it’s time for this old biatch to learn some nifty new tricks. Like these stories thing a ma jigs. You kids and your tick tocks and chat snaps. Back in my day we had tamagotchi and pokemon’s.

Oh yeah we still got pokemon! * fires up pokemon go and runs around the neighborhood for seven years *

Ok, now that I’ve caught eleventy billion Rattatas let’s see if I can make my point… oh yes! Why so serious? Well, number one, I do the serious thing rather well. But, more importantly, it was always much easier for me to be boring. That doesn’t work any more.

So, I’m just gotta be “balls to the wall” straight up with y’all. I’m gonna call it as I see it according to Amelia. I am a Phoenix rising and I’m not going down again like I have so many times before!

It’s time I actually practice what I preach. You’re already famous. You just have to visualize it. Then, just go for it!

What are your dreams, lovelies? Share them with me so I can visualize them with you!

Love always,

Amelia <3
