Fool Me Once, Shame On You; Fool Me Twice, Shame On The Both Of Us

No matter how many times you do it, you are still to blame.


This is getting old. Just when I thought things would get better, the tables turned at the last minute.

It's in your blood that you have the obligation to insult and drop people. You claim it's because it's who you are. Every action is blamed on your brain, but you actually don't blame yourself. It's humorous to watch you not figure it out.

For some reason, people see through your transparent personality. People love you. People want to hang out with you. People want to be your friend. I was one of those people because I actually thought you were funny.

After a year of constant stress just from you, I am hanging on a thin thread. I don't know if I'm coming or going with you. I don't know whether I will make it out alive if I continue to live my life beneath you.

Because you are NOT above me, nor will you ever be.

I gave you a million and one chances to be better; we even had a full-on conversation about it. You said what you said, and I gave you my word that I wouldn't stop being your friend. You did admit that you were sassy and uptight, and I agreed with you.

I'm surprised you didn't talk trash or punch me in the face.

Yet, you still did. You continued your ways of intimidation, bullying, and harassment. You continued to be mean. You continued to brainwash others into thinking it was everyone else's fault and not yours. You continued to be a bitch.

I knew that last year would be the last year I would hang out with you. I had a vision that you would neglect me because of your circumstances and your plans.

After every complaint and insult, it hurts even worse, but I'm also used to it. I'm used to the stress and the frustration. Every letdown gets funnier and funnier because each excuse gets more poor.

It's okay if you don't want to be my friend. Honestly, I'll live. I know you found a new clique and you'll replace me with them. I'm used to getting replaced anyway.

You fooled me once. Oops, shame on you because you screwed up. I let it go. Fool me twice, shame on the both of us. No matter how many times you screw me over, you are still to blame, and I blame myself for believing you.

Fool me 100 times, and you're gone.

What a shame, but I expected this all along. We are two completely different people, and I am simply tired of being made fun of for being me. I will not continue this unless you want to. Even then, I will still keep my distance.

I hope this haunts you sooner rather than later. You will realize eventually that you lost someone good.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
