Good Girl Problems

ASK   About   Anjel Marie   List of Good Girl Problems   

Began 11/7/11.

To all the good girls who face the consequences of following the rules and being moralistic, but it's all in good humor :)

madymoiselle asked: a lot of these posts describe me so well haha. overall, do you think it's a positive or negative thing to be a good girl?


Answer:

I pretty much expressed my views on “being a good girl” here. But basically, I think a “good girl” is someone who can take responsibility for herself and shows confidence in her actions and words. There are no strict guidelines for being a “good girl”, and I know that people get a lot of shit for contradicting the term and its connotation (e.g., “Oh no, you tried alcohol at this party this one time, so you’re totally not a good girl~”).

I started this blog as a way to poke fun at the label. Some of these posts apply to many of us, but we can never epitomize the image of a “good girl”. We change overtime, and that’s okay.

Stay lovely~

A Note.

Hello everyone.

Last November, during my first semester of college, I decided to create a blog called “Good Girl Problems,” inspired by my reluctancy to partake in “the college experience” (i.e., frat parties, drinking, hooking up, and yadda).

By the end of my freshman year, there have been many people who shared me their stories, thanked me for this blog (and for my existence, lol), and even criticized the context of the posts. Overall, I never thought that GGP would even get noticed. But I’m grateful that there are other “goody-goodies” who felt the same way I did…

Unfortunately, I feel obliged to admit why I haven’t released anything new in several months. And no, it’s not because I turned into a “bad girl,” haha. (Then again, no one can be at either extremes…)

I tried to be subtle about it in my previous post, “What Makes a Good Girl”. But here, I will be explicit about it: I don’t feel that I can continue this blog. The feeling is uncertain, but maybe it’s because my perspective has changed since entering college. “The college experience” doesn’t sound as terrifying as I used to think (but I have not gone through it yet, haaaah). Still, I keep true to my own standards, that I don’t need to fit into a certain mold for everyone to like and respect me. Like I mentioned in that post, I am content with who I am, and I ask for nothing more.

This isn’t me saying that I will leave. This blog is for you. From time to time, I will add something here that relates to the blog. But no more problems will be added. I think all the problems have been listed, hehe.

So this is where it ends.

Thank you all for bringing this blog to life (this wasn’t just a one-woman thing). Remember to stay lovely, because that is what you are all.

Hello everyone,

I know it’s been 2 weeks since I posted anything new. And I have no excuse for why nothing has been added to this page.

Cheyenne’s Story
I want to be the perfect child, the perfect student, the perfect athlete, the perfect friend, the perfect girlfriend, and ultimately a perfect person. But, trying to maintain all of that is so ridiculous. What’s even worse is that I try. In the end, I end up having to give up the lesser things. I end up sacrificing what I really want for what I know I my parents would approve of.(Being a good girl) Sometimes I get so stressed that I need to blow off steam and dum-da-da-dum; my tumblr. Follow me.
