Humans are lazy, pt. II

Humans are lazy. Every site I go to I see at least one ad for weight loss. "Cut down pounds of belly fat by obeying this one rule! As seen on CNN, or Food Network, or whatever! Check out my blog to read my story!"

I love it how everyone wants to be thin but no one wants to work for it. No one wants to actually eat healthy, actually exercise, actually try to stay healthy. I bet we all do these things. We stay up late at night because going early is square and there's too much to get done anyways. We choose the faster thing, whatever we can just pull out of the fridge or slam into the microwave. We always check the nutrition facts to see if what we're eating is remotely healthy, but if it isn't, what do we care? We just tell ourselves, oh, we'll eat healthier tomorrow, oh, we'll work out tomorrow, oh, we'll eat something healthy to balance. But do we? Not always.

Humankind is lazy. We are no longer forced to be in shape. We don't hunt for our food (thank goodness, meat is gross), and we don't really worry about getting eaten by bears or washed away in a storm. We can just pull something out of the pantry and open it up, we don't have to cook our food on an open fire or something.

And look at us. There are so many things we as humans take for granted (like clean water, medicine, constant shelter, easy access to food, easy transportation, no fighting and war here, oh don't even get me started) and yet we worry about petty things like our appearance, how thin or buff or ripped or whatever we are. We worry about the stupid petty things that won't even matter a hundred years from now to anyone looking back. Who kissed who. Who's a 'ho. Who lost 52 pounds by obeying one simple rule. Who's going out with who, who dumped who. (I think I have bad grammar, maybe it's who dumped whom... Maybe not. Whatever.)

We are so shallow.

And lazy.

And me, most of all.

PS. (edited in later) This is my fortune for the day, my horrorscope.

"You will be weakened, not in form: you won't be in a good mood and will be incapable of action or finishing your tasks. You will meet people you find fascinating but who may make you forget your duties through their originality. Your ideas will be as unsound as your character.

You will very much want to be free and independent. You will be disturbed, upset, troubled and tormented. You will live beyond your means.

You will not feel very much at ease, a feeling that all's not well or of emptiness around you will encase you as if you were in a thick fog."

Jeez, bad fortunes are the pits when they're right.

Pre*, sorry. Fail.


Wow, you really read all that? Danggg. Props! =]

Well, I see you've just had the imponderable joy of stumbling onto the blog of an 18-year-old girl who can't really describe herself in 500 words or less, such as in little text boxes like these. She didn't intend her blog to really become so much like her online diary (she was hoping it would have an interesting, helpful purpose to serve the world and all) but blogging is just kind of fun. This girl's a bit of an environmentalist and a full-tilt vegetarian, a bit of an artist who can't draw, a bit of a writer who can't find time to read, and a completely hopeless romantic. She enjoys white chocolate, coloring, wading in creeks, music, Doctor Who, and speaking in third-person when it's unnecessary like this.

Now go read the rest of the blog and meet her, if you like of course. :)
