if you want a nice body, go get it. if you want to become a lawyer, study your ass off. if you want nice hair, pick a style and get it done. stop being afraid and motivate yourself. find yourself. find your happiness, because it’s out there waiting for you.

You come across as very materialistic and I feel your motivation to do well in school to get a high paying job is just because of material objects. Do you think you would have the same career and motivation if all you could buy with money was food?


I understand that I may come off as materialistic every now and again- sometimes I think twice about posting what I bought/want to buy. But the truth is that I’m not sorry at all- I love pretty things. I love bags and clothes and make-up. If that makes me materialistic, so what. At the end of the day I pay it all with my own money, it makes me happy and I’m not hurting anyone.

But you are so, so wrong if you think that I work 10 hour days so I can buy a new lipstick or dress. Or that I busted my ass off to get a Distinction average so I could get a new pair of shoes. 

When I passed all my subjects for my degree, I called my grandparents in Nepal and they all cried because I was the first child to graduate from university here. My parents left Nepal 18 years ago for this great ~dream~ and being able to turn around and say “Look- I’m doing it and achieving things” is honestly the most amazing feeling in the world. THAT is my motivation. To make them proud. To make all their sacrifies worthwhile. To set a good example for my siblings. 

So yes I have big hopes and dreams and ambitions and owning pretty things is a by product of that. But that isn’t the whole reason. That isn’t even close. There is so much to my story that just because I don’t talk about them on here doesn’t mean they don’t exist. I got the expectations of about three generations on my shoulders, love. 

So life lesson of the day: don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Or: don’t judge a random chick on the internet because she likes Christian Dior makeup. 

this is awesome. And your family SHOULD be proud of you because you seem awesome, intelligent, hard working, witty, and kind. You deserve to “reward” all that by buying pretty things if you want! :)
