Raquel Strikes Again

Recommended Posts

Depressed

It is amusing she thinks she is just so  real and deep, when in reality she is very shallow and fake. 

I can't even imagine writing something like that about myself but she continually writes things praising herself for being more amazing than everyone else.

I absorb other people's energies 

I understand people better than you

I feel more than other people

  I am so observant and perceptive                  

                       

i have no idea what other people feel 

so they probably don't 

are they even real

[quoted from Raquel's pome]

"I am special because my hair gets messed up

     I laugh and cry because I see more than mere mortals  

           I am a bad tipper  

                    I am more real than other people 

I have more faith 

       when my relationships go wrong 

it's not me, it's you"

correct me i'f i'm wrong, because i dislike coffee and do not frequent Starbucks or comparable stores, but isn't it customary to tip a barista?  one would think that if her own income is dependent on tips, she would have some kind of understanding for others in the same line of work.....    oh right, this is Raquel; never mind.

I bet she bitches madly if she gets a bad tipper customer.

I'm pretty sure I wrote stuff like that. At the age about 12. Everyone goes through the whole "I am sooooo profound. I am thinking thoughts no one has ever thought before." It's just that most people grow out of it. (And thankfully for some of us, the internet wasn't a thing when we were that age).

You are correct! At 11 or 12 I wrote some super melodramatic letters to a poor missionary child I was given as a pen pal in church. I can't think of why she never wrote back. :laughing-jumpingpurple: I am embarrassed just thinking of those letters.

I can't image being Raquel's age and writing things like that. I think her navel gazing has gotten worse as time has passed instead of growing out of it as most people do.

Back in the year of typewriters and rejection letters it was probably a bit harder to fancy yourself the next Wordsworth. You actually had to edit to get anything published, let alone receive any positive reviews. Now everyone can self publish pretty much any old crap and you're instantly an author and poet.

I have an old blog that I haven't updated in years and I still get some likes and comments that say "what a great post", probably from people who have something to spam.

Sometimes there’s a collective tip jar so people can dump their change if they want but most coffee shops I know you’re not expected to tip the cashier who took your order or the barista who made it (who might be the same person). It’s not table service.

Thanks @Petronella!  I must have been thinking of the collective jar.

When I was 12, I was trying to write a musical using Dolly Parton's songs. I had about three pages of dialogue and two songs. It was a lot harder than I had expected.

Her latest pome says she's been unemployed in April. Wonder what happened.

Perhaps she was so annoying the coffee shop couldn't take her anymore

That means she's no longer with the Boys and Girls Club. Good.

One thing I've noticed is that in almost half her photos, she's not facing the camera. Not an Instagram person, so I thought I'd ask. Is that a thing? Do people routinely take pictures from behind these days?

I'm not an Instagram person either, but maybe she likes to show off her hair?

If it's a waterfall photo maybe she likes the free falling water and the free falling hair together?

I am an instagram person but I mostly follow accounts that post dogs and landscapes, hardly anyone who posts selfies.  So IDK what people usually do but I would assume that either

-they're going for an artsy look and want emotions to be implied, rather than seen in the photo  (eg. look at this amazing, wonderful landscape with me, or, look at me, i'm this lonely sad person in this photo)  

-they used a timer and it was hard to get the facial expression right

-they're wearing no makeup

or

-see  my butt looks pretty great amirite

She got a nose ring. Eh, whatever. You do you and all that. But, of course, being Raquel, she has to make it profound and spiritual, instead of simply something she liked. Raquel is forever Raquel, sadly.
