I will never…

By: Gabriela Yareliz

This will be a fun blog. All about the things we accept we will never be or have. They say never say never– but perhaps there are things we can actually say never about.

Inspired by:

I’ll never like Chipotle

Every time I walk by this place, I cringe. Yesterday, while walking through SoHo, a woman was like, “I think we should have gone to Chipotle.” Nooooo, believe me you are fine without it. I have tried to love Chipotle and give it a chance, but I prefer other fake Mexican joints.

I’ll never dye my hair a purple-ish red.

Latinas do this a lot, and I have never liked it. It’s different from the Henna look (even though I am wary of Henna). So, I am pretty sure I would never venture to dye my hair in that lifelong dreaded color. It traumatized me from a young age.

I’ll never get my ears pierced.

No sir. Modesty and Adventist simplicity to the death.

I’ll never look good in or buy skinny jeans.

I don’t wear skinny jeans. I don’t own a pair. I dislike tight clothes and my body shape looks like a pear or something weirdly voluptuous in these jeans. My idea of beauty is not having the silhouette of a Kardashian in tight, tight clothes. I would rather wear clothes that is more loose fitting.

I’ll never stop feeling sorry for suck-ups.

Sucking up = losing dignity. Dear people who suck up, what is the point in losing respect for yourself and placating with no restraint hoping to gain someone’s approval (very popular survival tactic in law school) from people who ultimately only care about themselves and care nothing about how you have to face yourself in the mirror. Be respectful always, but never a doormat or desperate for approval.
Make sure you can face yourself and God.
