Catching Up With Lady Elle~


Dear Life,

So the new year is here and 2018 is looking more bright. First of all, I have good news, I finally have a entry level job with better pay and benefits with a banking company. So, goodbye retail!


About this new job, I’m not nervous but anxious because I’m excited to learn something new. With this job being in the city, I am nervous about the price of parking more than the usual congested traffic. Therefore, I have to save and wait.


A week ago I flew to Florida for a little vacation to spend time with my cousins. I shopped and bought a lot of Rugrats merchandise such as a Chuckie key chain, Reptar keychain, and three Reptar bars that I have been waiting to try since I was a child.


Oh yes, I am a huge Rugrats fan. I was close to buying the Reptar cereal but did not believe in paying $13 for it. Like how is it $13? Will the cereal turn me into a dinosaur?


About the Reptar bars, I was going to freeze them before trying them because I like eating my chocolate bars frozen. Frozen chocolate bars are more delish than warm room temperature chocolate bars, but that time I was willing to try it straight out of the store.

The taste of the chocolate bar was rich with the delish green colored frosting. At first, I thought the frosting would make the bar too sweet but it was not overwhelmingly sweet. It was enough. Like other reviewers, I wished the bar was shaped like a Reptar just like the show.

And to answer the main question on whether the Reptar bar actually turned my tongue green..


No, but I had a green stripe on my tongue if that counts…

By the way, the bar was $3 dollars…probably the most money I paid for any candy bar, but the F.Y.E store had the buy 1 and get 2 free deal for the repatar bars, which explains why they still had hundreds of them still on display.

In Florida, I developed a love for flea market shopping. I bought more snacks like trail mix because I am a proud foodie. I bought many sunglasses for $5 each. Now, I know where I can find cheap sunglasses.


After returning home from Florida, I participated in the Martin Luther King parade. As I re-read and reflect on a few of his speeches, I can’t help but to wonder if today’s reality is what he dreamed of. For instance, segregation is over, we can eat, watch, and play anywhere we go, but I still see blacks and white living separately. There is still a pay wage gap between races and also gender. Police brutalities still happen but lately this controversy has died down a bit but I will not be surprised if it is still happening today. As for politics…things have changed for the worse. I no longer see the need of political parties like the Republicans and Democrats. The whole government system is not perfect just like our human-selves.


Racism is still a very sensitive topic that most people rather still avoid because it still exists, not only in the United States, but around the world. You have racism from the lowest class to the highest royals. Yes, I am talking about you, Princess Michael of Kent.

Will racism end? Not entirely. We should no longer question how to end racism, but how to recognize it, address it, and fix it.  We should raise our children to become more open-minded on what is going on in this world, not shelter them behind their textbooks. Yes, education is important but it can only prepare them for higher education and promising careers, not reality.  It all starts with being fearless and trying to place your shoes in other people’s situation.

For those who use statistics, the media, and social media  as  your support of argument, get out the house and observe the phenomenon yourself to investigate the reason why this problem still happens each year. Meet new people who are different from you to understand their situation.


You want make a change? You want to stop racism, prejudice, discrimination, or stop complaining about people pulling out the “race card” ? Stop arguing with trolls on social media, get out the house, and fix it! You will have to get uncomfortable before you get comfortable to understand other people. Ask the former Nazi how his views of people of color changed when an African American lady treated him with kindness.

Change is possible but it all starts with you.

Life Lesson #90:  A sheltered person is easily influenced, closed-minded, unreliable, and selfish. Stop seeking shelter to avoid today’s issues. Look in the mirror, get out, and get involved.

The Most Annoying Commentators on Social Media


facebook post

Dear Internet Life,

I enjoy social media every now and then, catching up on what’s been happening in the world. Whenever I need a good laugh, I would go to the comment section to read people’s comments below.

Although I love social media and the entertaining people who writes these interesting comments below the posts, there are a handful of commentators that needs to take a long break from the internet.

Therefore, let me reveal the most annoying social media commentators!

1. The Political Freaks

politica trolls
Ever since the 2016 election, people still TILL THIS DAY are still obsessed and aggressive with this Conservative versus Liberal civil war. Every time, I check the news on Facebook and Twitter, in the comment section you see something like: “Snowflakes, Liberal tears, and fake news.” I know this earth is not full of mature human beings and I know we all have our differences, but if you disagree with other people’s political views, accept it and let it go. Commenting a big paragraph insulting each other and etc. is not going to make a person change due to upbringing and ignorance. It is up to the individual to change.

grow up

Speaking of big paragraphs…


2. The Long and Extra Commentators

Long post Good
I love reading people’s comments when it comes to juicy, gossipy news, but at the same time my time is very precious. I don’t mind reading one sentence to maybe a paragraph, but reading comments long as essays are annoying, boring, and too extra! I know most users want to prove a point, but honey…just GET TO THE POINT!Also, if you have an interesting story to write about, blog it! Trust me, nobody has time to read your long essay-comment about your life story or why you are against the Kardashians (can’t stand them too, but really).

Therefore long commentators, please keep the comments short and simple. Because…


I wish Facebook has a 140 character limit.

3. The Dumb Commentators

I love following and reading celebrity news online catching up on what is happening in the celebrity world. However, when it comes to the comment section, you have people complaining about why E! Entertainment or People Magazine keeps posting news about Beyonce, Madonna, or the Kardashians. Some people seem to forget (or bumped their head) that these celebrity news sites are SUPPOSED to report about celebrities. If you are sick of hearing about a certain celebrity, just avoid it and keep sliding down your phone until you find something that is really interesting. It does not matter if you unfollow them or not, the writers are still getting paid!


4. The Trolls


For every comment section, there will be trolls that just want trouble and attention. Unfortunately, users still tend to fall into the troll’s trap by insulting them and insulting them wasting their time and energy. People, don’t fool with the trolls because those 15 minutes you wasted on trying to out-troll the troll could have been used by watching a funny YouTube video. Negativity is only a distraction. Focus on the positive.

5. The Chain Letters

Really? People still write those? I know it was a fad since the 90s and early 2000s, but there are still about 15% of users that still write them. I remember reading a chain letter about a ghost girl coming to knock on my door and kill me if I do not send the same chain letter to five of my user friends. Well….it’s been over ten years. I think the ghost girl got lost and gave up.

6. The “Likies”
Does this look familiar?


I understand the love for nostalgia,but let us just like the video and move on. We do not need to like your comment to like a song.

Well that is all for now…until I have another list.

I understand people have the freedom of speech and print, but we can all agree that we need more common sense. People do not think before they type.

For example…

If I spot a internet troll who just wants to fat shame or bully someone, should I waste my ten minutes to go low as the troll and bully the troll back? Will that make me better or worse?

If I keep debating with a person who thinks differently from me, should I just stop and move on and accept that there are people who need to open their minds on their own to see your point-of-view.

Most of the time, people really do not read people’s comments carefully and just quickly assume that is what they mean.  For example, I remember commenting on a post about some actress that looks much skinnier than she was on television. A user thought I was “skinny-shaming” her, but that was not the case.

I explained why I made that comment and was only going to explain it ONCE. If she still did not understand, or just wanted to keep feuding with me online, then I would just block her because my time is precious.  Just like texting, people’s comments can mean anything.


Life Lesson #88: Do not feed the internet trolls. Be mature and spend your time commenting wisely.

Thank You,
