Fabulous is as Fabulous Does

Fabulous is...

Personal. Fabulousness is being unique and individual and not giving two cares about what anyone else thinks or feels about who you are. Being fab is more than just what you where or how you look. It transcends the physical and consists of completeness: not only looking great, but also feeling great and being great. Being fabulous is about swag. Crazy swag. You have it or you don't.

I couldn't make this ish up....

So the year has begun and it is time to write because I'm feeling some type of way once again. Self-respect. Couth. Dignity. Class. Refinement. The George Washington University has gone crazy, and everyone I've encountered seemingly possess none of the above. For a moment in time I though we as a people had made a change. I thought we had embodied progress. I thought we were moving beyond our days of tom foolery and foolywang material, but I have never been more wrong. Like they say, assumptions will make an ass of you. Throughout the past few weeks I have never been more embarassed. Walking into a campus party to see freshman girls bent over touching the floor, giving lap dances in the doorway, and participating in illict activites that will definately assist in the contrating of numerous STD's makes my stomach turn. Are we kidding? Is that really how you want to present yourself, especially in the first month of school? Not that I'm the authority on prim and propper behavior BUT I have a little good sense unlike some people who choose to have all their encounters and rendezvous documented on Facebook. Let's be serious. Do you really think that's appropriate? Is that really how you want to be etched into people's memories?? Do you realize that you are the smut that will let anybody get it and the bust down that doesn't care who knows? I'm honestly appalled. As women we need to do better, and I thought coming to GW would be a step in that direction but Hov said it best, "You can pay for school but you can't buy class." As the days turn into weeks we, collectivly must sit and reevaluate our goals, values, and ambitions. If our behaviors don't correspond with people that we are trying to become something has got to give. Loving ourselves is the first step. Knowing yourself worth is number two. If we don't love ourselves and understand our self worth we will constantly allow men (and I use that term loosely) to objectify and take advanage of us. Instead of allowing ourselves to be torn down and used for some lackluster athletes instant gratification how about we build up our minds, boo love with Gelman, and get this education. After all, isn't that the reason we're here?

Collectively, as a people, we MUST, MUST, MUST do BETTER!!! It is no longer an option but a necessity.
