If you didn’t know, the Oscars awards were last night. I didn’t watch it because I think it’s a waste of time to stay up that late. Actually, I’m not interested in the Academy Awards that much. I saw it once when Lord of the rings was nominated, and they won too. The nominations have become a little weird. There are movies I’ve never heard of. The film that should be nominated isn’t. It only gets stranger each year. I wonder if there are only old farts that choose who gets nominated. A pinch of criticism about the Oscars here.
Some of the movies you can’t even watch in the theatre. Not everyone wants to pay for Netflix. I already have Disney Plus. It’s not that I would watch the movies, but only saying movies like that shouldn’t be nominated in an award show like The Oscars. Short films are different. They can only be shown on streaming services. I always wondered why movie series never get nominated for the big awards. They might belong to a series, but they are still different movies. They usually win special effects or awards like that. I don’t think it’s right, but that’s how the Academy works. Lord of the rings is the only movie that won Best movie. It seems trilogies are poison for the Academy. I feel a little sorry for the actors who won’t get nominated because they are in these movies. Then again, they don’t become actors for the awards. The Oscars are only one among other award shows, so it’s not the end of the world if “wrong” movies or actors get nominated. It’s only a Hollywood thing, to show off your party dress. That’s probably a big part of why people watch the award show. I don’t care about that. I care about watching movies and not the glamour that goes with the filmmaking folks.
Lady Gaga performed in SuperBowl and people on social media criticized her appearance. I haven’t read exactly what they were but it wasn’t very nice. She handled it very well by saying she likes her body the way it is. Did these negative people even watch her performance? Celebrities always gets criticized as soon as they put on some weight or they get older. I really don’t envy them one bit. Some people have a weird sense of body image. It’s no wonder since all you see in the media are perfect looking people. Those who criticize others probably think they’re so perfect themselves. It’s so easy to write negative things online behind a user name.
You should really look at yourself before you criticise others. That’s what I would like to say to those few who were mean to me about how I looked like. They didn’t even have the guts to say it straight but instead pretended to be nice. I don’t know if it was a bad or a good thing that they didn’t say it but I know they were thinking it. I didn’t get friends because I wasn’t good enough to them. Who choses friends by their appearance anyway? As a teen you’re more sensitive about these things. I wouldn’t care now what people think of me. I’m not here for them, I’m here for me. It’s because I’m female and people think I should act like one. I don’t want to be like everyone else. You can’t change your appearance and your personality. You can only be yourself. No one should change for anyone. If people can’t except me for who I am and how I look like than too bad.
It’s strange that females have to look perfect all the time but men can be as fat or unattractive as they can and no one says anything. If you don’t wear make-up or spend money on clothes, you’re no woman at all. Women are supposed to look nice and not say anything. They should pleasure men and live their lives on their terms. But that’s not reality. Real people should look real and not like Barbie dolls. That’s where these negative people get their motivations from. A fantasy world that only exist in their minds. If you’re beautiful on the outside, how about on the inside? If your ugly on the inside than there’s no point of being good-looking. Luckily there are people out there who are both but that’s a rare gift. There’s always gonna be criticism no matter what but you just have to live with it. You can only have confident in yourself and not let it affect you. When you have that, negative comments bounces off you easily.
You write something online (a blog or whatever) and then some take it personally. They tell you you’re wrong. They tell you can’t criticize or say anything negative about anything. They tell you what you should post. If you write your opinions, they can’t take it so they unfollow you.
That kind of followers are not worth having. If you don’t respect my opinion, I won’t respect yours. Tumblr is full of these who are afraid of criticism. But what to expect from teenagers. They take everything seriously. What kind of person unfollows a blog or any social media just because they don’t agree. We can’t always get along. Those people probably can’t handle conflicts in real life either.
I won’t lose sleep if people unfollow me. It’s their problem, not mine. I don’t keep a blog to please people. I might write negative things but I’m not aiming it on anyone personally. It’s my blog and I write what I like. If I criticise it, it’s my business. Not just this blog but also on the internet in general. Especially on Tumblr where people only seem to care about how many followers they get. Sometimes I do wonder why am I not getting much. I’ve already been there since 2012. I have 4 different one’s. I hardly get even likes no matter what I post in them. Even this post will go to the randomlythings. But that’s beside the point.
The most frustrated is The Blacklist one. It’s soon one year old but I have only 65 followers. That’s better than nothing but still not much going on there. Why do people even follow if they don’t interact. Just wondering. But again, I won’t lose sleep over it. The show came back from a break and now it’s back on. And yet nothing much going on when it comes to reblogs or likes. But I’m just impatient when it comes to waiting.
So much work with Tumblr. All that work goes to waste if no one reacts. I dislike unnecessary work. It’s like cleaning. No matter how much you do it, it’s still gonna get dirty again. You need motivations from others to keep doing it. The same goes with photography and writing. If no one gives you feedback, how can you learn getting better. I can’t. I just let it be and don’t even try. Because what’s the point? I don’t know how to get better. When I do, how will I know if no one doesn’t tell me.
I can handle negative criticism as long as I get something positive out of it. I wish I could say the same for some. People are just too afraid to hurt people’s feelings so they hold their opinions to themselves. If you don’t like me, just say so because I’m sure I won’t like you either. But be careful you don’t sound insulting because I can be as insulting as you and you don’t want to see that side of me.
You know what they say, opinions are like a§§h0les, we all got one.
