Dear Diary,

Lately, things have been tough at school. In the middle of January, a new girl entered our class. Her name is Mave Parie and everyone thinks she is just the cat’s pajamas! “Mave, come sit with me! Mave, come play with me! Mave, be my best friend forever?!” I don’t dislike Mave…it’s just she never looks in my direction. Once she dropped a pen while walking past my desk and I scrambled to pick it up, banging my head on the corner of the desk on the way up. “Mave! Got your pen! Saved it from a sad life with the dust bunnies and everything else of the floor.” She looked at me as if I were speaking Greek and shrugged saying “Uh..keep it.” All the other girls were telling me I should feel lucky Mave let me keep her pen but I just feel like she didn’t want to have to touch me in order to get it back. I know I’m made of bones and might look frail and drafty but deep in here I still have a heart. You can literally see it beating through my chest! And the way Mave and the other girls have been ignoring me has made my heart beat slower.

I told Mummy about all this and she said it was time for “interactive therapy.” Mummy is a big fan of visual learning and she always says “we learn though experiences and actions.” For this reason, she is always coming up with strange ways share the facts of life. When I got home today, Mummy was in the kitchen boiling water. “Pasta for dinner?”I asked. But Mummy told me she sent Dad and Emmet out for pizza and that we were going to have a girl’s night. A whole night just for us two? Without Dad’s corny jokes? Without Emmet literally stealing my socks off my feet to turn them into sails for a stupid boat contraption he was making? Wow, a girl’s night indeed! Mummy told me the boiling water was for tea. “Tea? Ew. Isn’t that for old ladies or sick people?” But Mummy said there was a special power in tea you could calm and soothe you when you are sad and I needed that right now. As Mummy dunked the tea bag into my cup of hot water, I watched as the cup slowly turned from clear, to amber to deep dark brown. “Whoah! All that color from one tiny tea bag?” Mummy then asked me “Do you know who Eleanor Roosevelt is, Emme?” Of course I did! We just finished learning about her in school! Mrs. Roosevelt had changed the role of first lady through being active and outspoken. I liked the idea of that! Mummy said that Mrs. Roosevelt was famous for many things but one of them was a quote about the strength of a woman and how like a tea bag, a woman doesn’t always show her true power until she is put in a tough situation. Mummy said I couldn’t change what was going on at school. She didn’t know why the other girls were fascinated with Mave or why Mave didn’t seem to like me. She said I had two choices, to try and make Mave like me….or to stay true to myself, stay strong and accept the fact that this one person wasn’t a fan of me and that’s ok. I decided to choose the second option. After all, Mave might be a pretty new girl but she certainly isn’t worth me bending over backwards for. Besides, have you seen a skeleton bend over backwards? It ain’t cute!

Mummy and I enjoyed girl’s night for a long time before Dad and Emmet came home and we promised to have it every time each one of us needed comfort. And guess what? I kinda sorta like tea now! But only if there’s sugar in it…..LOTS of sugar.

Later xoxoxoxox

danistyles123 asked: What are some really great pointers to be unique?(: {to be a fruit loop in a world full of Cheerios} x

Whatever you are already doing is YOUnique because you are doing it. When you try to be unique you are doing yourself an injustice by not being your true self but instead being a false self that you created. The most unique thing you can do is to be yourself, whoever that is. So many people hide or shy away from their true selves and wear masks to fit in. This works in the short term because they may be more popular at first and get along easier but in the end it breaks them down because they’ve wasted years being someone they aren’t. Hope that helps!
