Some Pros and Cons of Being a Vampire

A short list of the pros and cons of being a vampire.

Some Pros and Cons of Being a Vampire

Seeing as I get to read texts in class this week and until the end of the semester that deal with vampires, I figured I would throw together a bit of a thing on vampires. Don't believe for a second this will be entirely accurate or factual. However, I will say that any mention of a thing that deals a way to combat a vampire is something I have actually researched. Yes, I know, a bit ridiculous or a lot ridiculous, up to you. But while I'm at it, vampires are no laughing matter, at least vampire safety. Everyone should know how to protect themselves against vampires. I digress though, on with the list.


1. Immortality - You'll live forever essentially. That means you'll get to see every movie from now til whenever and all the remakes that will undoubtedly follow.

2. Strength - Vampires have been known to have increased strength. So a round of fisticuffs will be no problem for you. I'm not too sure on knife fights or gun fight though. Good luck I guess.

3. Hypnosis/Enthrall - As a vampire You'll get to make people into your slaves if you want. You have the option really. Some hypnosis trick and ta-da you've got someone to do your bidding. You have someone to do your laundry, do the shopping, or hold your spot in line when you have to pee. The possibilities are endless really.

4. Shapeshifting - According to some legends vampires have the ability to shapeshift. Lots of fun there. The ability though appears to be limited to animals. So hey, you can screw with people as an animal. Make for some interesting YouTube videos if anything.


1. No Garlic - Say goodbye to garlic bread and garlic fries. No more delicious goodness for you, sorry. However, if you are willing to dope up on antihistamines, I think you can east some garlic foods. I'm not sure how much. Just an option.

2. Sunlight - Although it won't kill you, that's right, sunlight won't actually kill you. It just weakens you. That is in accordance with some legends. I imagine sunburn will also be an increased issue there as well. SO use lots of sunscreen and make sure it's the high SPF.

3. OCD - This is killer for vampires. You suffer from some severe OCD. This is a known fact in vampire fighting too. If you go to "sleep" and upon waking you find poppy seeds all over you say goodbye to your day. You will have to spend your day counting the poppy seeds. It's definitely a downside. The same goes for a line of knots. If you wake up to a string or something with knots in it, you have to untie them all. I know it's weird, but it is totally backed up by research into the legends.

4. Blood - If the thought of blood bothers you, too bad. As a vampire you need it otherwise, you die. Sorry. So start picking out your victims now if you want to be a vampire. Or, set something up with a hospital blood bank. Maybe even hang out during blood drives.

Well I think I've given a pretty simple list of some of the pros and cons on being a vampire. I know it's a bit short, but I did not want to dig up all of my previous research. I don't need anyone thinking I'm off my head, even if I am a bit. Hopefully this will help anyone considering vampirism as a way of life. If you suffer from vampirism and I am wrong in any way here, I'm sorry. Come find me if you wish to, and I will be more than happy to discuss these points. Be warned though, I know your weaknesses.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
