I Identify As A Unicorn

My Journey

I Identify As A Unicorn

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror, You know when you're alone in your dark room. And you think to yourself that this is not you. I looked at the woman in the mirror and said " I'm a freakin' Unicorn" This is my journey into becoming the real me.

When I knew I was different

I always wanted to be trotting around. It was like an urge I had no control over. I had no friends because I was "That weird kid that trotted around the school tree" I just thought it was a ridiculously long nick name. Would it have cost them to shorten it? My head felt naked. I was missing something but didn't know what, It was frustrating. Another sign was the obsessive use of glitter. I had to throw it in the air every time I came into a room. It got so bad I started to eat glitter so then my poop would come out looking more fabulous than me.

Leaving Hints For My Family

I thought of pretty cool ways to leave hints for my family. I put many Skittles in their food. I think that passed all the hurtful demeaning -soul crushing -I'm probably going to need therapy words they said to me, I think they enjoyed it. I also put glitter in their shampoo. I think they rocked it. Not really but my intentions were good. They seemed confused as to why I was doing these things. That's when I was ready to come out to them.

Officially Coming Out

I figured that after the hints I should just reveal the secret to them. I gathered my family in the living room one calm afternoon. As I was walking down the hallway negative thoughts clouded my mind. I thought about the Michael's store glitter sale I was missing, And if they'll realize that Shonda Rhymes is secretly evil for killing off Mcdreamy in 'Greys Anotomy'. I Shook off these thoughts and kept walking.

I threw glitter in the air and trotted my way into the living room. I stared at them for precisely a minute then I got my Unicorn mask I bought at a local Halloween store. I slowly put the mask on while staring into their eyes. They say it was awkward I say it was us bonding. It was pretty deep. I bowed down and saw no expression on their faces.

They got up and started to leave the living room. They looked at me and told me that they knew I was a "Unicorn". They said that's why they always made me be 15 steps behind them and they told people I wasn't their child. Now I know where I get my comedian side from.But I know that deep deep down behind those 100 walls of steel, A fire breathing dragon, Black dark woods that are filled with thorns and depression, There's a heart. A black like charcoal heart but nonetheless a heart. I neighed in happiness and Trotted into the sunset.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
