Hey Everyone! It’s me! Ellis! And I hope everyone is feeling uber supreme today as I’m doing my best to get out of the crummy funk that I’ve been in lately. There have been soooooo many things going on, but recently, I did feel like I sold my soul at work a little, and it’s been real hard coming to the crummy grips with it too. And yes, somehow, it’s Kardashian related, and that just made feel even crummier.
Before I continue, I do want to state that I don’t want to be one of those celestial beings that gives the Kardashians grief for being who they are. That’s who they are! You can either watch them or you can turn them off. It’s your choice! Now with that being said, one of my bosses(Edward Ernest), told me that I had to start writing articles about the Kardashian family because “they get clicks, and clicks mean money, and we barely make two dimes here.” And I just thought that was the crummiest thing I’d ever heard, and that Edward Ernest was a giant crumbum from Crumtana. (I’ve since apologized to him, and he thankfully accepted.)
THIS IS A MENTAL HEALTH, ADDICTION, AND LIFE WEBSITE! WHAT DO THE KARDASHIANS HAVE TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS? AND PLEASE DON’T BRING UP KANYE WEST AND BIPOLAR DISORDER, THAT’S THE ONE EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
Ok, I’m done yelling, and I’m really embarrassed about my crummy behavior. I don’t get upset very often like this, and sometimes it comes out in a sort of fashion that’s unbecoming of me. I was just so upset is all.
I just want to write about real things that affect peoples lives and maybe make them smile, or laugh, and now I have to discuss bikini pictures.
I was so conflicted that I wanted to quit, but my colleague, Laurel Leaside did what she does best and talked me off the proverbial ledge sorta speak.
We discussed what precisely about having to write about the Kardashians was triggering me. What about them has bristled my emotional child to scream in all caps just like a Crummington as I did earlier in this post.
So I searched long and hard and deep into my soul. And I kept rubbing my old wounds by thinking of the whole Kardashian Clan walking around Old Navy and just saying EW! Uh, they are so crummy even in my imaginations.
Of all the things, and there are many things that anyone could get angry about when thinking about the Kardashians, it seemed my triggers were specifically about the flaunting of their wealth and their perceived crummy constant greed. You see, before I flew to earth, I came from a wealthier family, and I was always embarrassed about it. At first we didn’t have money growing up, but eventually, my family hit it big in real estate, so I was able to see all the changes in their crumbum personalities, and I didn’t like it one bit. It made me see how money brought out the crumminess in people. From changing your friends because they couldn’t afford to do the same things as you, to getting into a car accident and asking if the car was ok before asking if you were, to flaunting your new purchases, and to value money more than other people.
So I guess when I see or hear of the Kardashians, it gets me feeling all crummy inside because the thought of how they flaunt their wealth on social media makes me think of my old life. And how I wished that the crummy almighty dollar didn’t infect my family in a negative way to the point that we stopped being a family anymore. It was all about making a dollar and keeping up with appearances, and I’m not a keeping up with appearances type of being. I’m just me. Good ole, Ellis, who sometimes feels crummy or maybe a lot, but I’ve got a good heart, and it’s always in the right place. And I love everyone who’s reading this right now, even the Kardashians and my family too, and I wish nothing but the best for all of you.
