THE 3 R’S: REAL, RATCHET, REPUTATION

With the holidays coming up, I’m sure many of you will be attending different office parties, birthday parties, and all types of other celebrations. You probably have even brought the perfect outfit for the occasion (or so you thought), with plans on pulling that sexy co-worker of yours that you have been making eyes with all year. Well before you go outside thinking that you are the best thing since sliced bread, maybe you should re-evaluate yourself in front of a mirror. If you are contemplating on changing into a new outfit, ask yourself these questions: 1) “Is my dress so tight that every roll on my body is attempting to rip through the seams?” 2) Are my pants sagging so low that everyone behind me knows what color the horse on my drawers is?” 3) “Do I need to redo my hairstyle so that the whole world will not see every track sewn into my head?” If you answered yes to any of these questions, TRY AGAIN! It is not cute for a women to have on clot

And for all the males out there, you are too old to be sagging your pants. BUY A BELT, OR PANTS THAT FIT! Maybe if you knew the origin of that, you would think twice before you came out the house like that. Remember, it is ok to ask for help. When me and my friends would get ready to go out we would make sure that we all looked to part, before we left the house, or we would be quick to tell each other, you look a mess.

Now being ratchet does not just have to do with the way you dress. Your actions play a big part in how people perceive. Don’t be that person that always at the club starting fights with everybody , or ready to tell someone off because they stepped on your shoes. That is not cool in any shape, way or form. Especially when you are someone that people around you may look up to. STOP THE MADNESS! Just because because this person called you out of your name does not mean that you have to be ready to throw hands. It is ok to just let some things. Now if someone puts their hands on you, that is a different story, but if not, LET IT GO. You should not want to be perceived around campus, your job, or anywhere as that boy, or that girl that always getting into it with other people. That is how people loose friends! That is also not a good look for you professionally. Believe it or not, no matter how much you try and hide it, your past will catch up with you. REMEMBER, THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK AND ACT!  Your actions, not only affect you, but those around you. The next time you find yourself about to get into one of those “ratchet” situations, ask yourself  “Is this something that I would be proud of tomorrow, next month, or even next year?” Think About It…
