All The Things I Wasn't

I throw myself at the mercy of you, the peanut gallery.

That's kinda the point.

Cuz one day I'll look back at all this stuff and remember how awkward and insecure I was.

And I will laugh.

(Then hopefully go roll around in piles of money with my stunningly beautiful husband/man servant before jetting off to our summer home.)

Oh yeah. This chick's a dreamer.

Love it. Not awkward, just horribly charming and gorgeous. I would make this a weekly thing for you - maybe answer random questions us bloggers send to you and answer them on camera. Keep going, this is your audience saying 'more please'.

Dude, you have nothing to worry about. Seriously.

Good. it's a deal. more kris on video next week, same bat time, same bat place.

I wonder if by "comfortable" your friend really meant "naked."

Oh wait, did I say that out loud?

Let me be frank:

It is kind of awesome that someone as fucking beautiful and good on camera as you can still be insecure about having stupid teeth and being awkward.

Whenever I feel awkward, I will think of this, and know that ANYONE can feel the same way.

I agree with the above peeps and I second the Q&A.

You're right! Your teeth ARE stupid. Just kidding I actually was too busy looking at your cleav... I mean eyes to notice. :P

brij said...

Not awkward! Pretty.
Listen to your people!
I want a weekly video too.
Love, your supid fredin.

I dunno where to start with responses, so should I just re-iterate what I said in the video and let you guys know that you're frickin' AWESOME?

These were great comments to come home to. As awkward and insecure as I feel, you all make it SO much easier on me.

I'd make you all cupcakes, but I'm afraid to poison you. :)

(as far as the weekly Q&A goes, sounds FUN! )

Curd It Through The Grapevine said...

Don't be so quick to write off the cupcakes. I'd like cupcakes. I'd like white on white and make sure the icing is the buttercream kind where you get the small granules of sugar crunching between your teeth. Also, I'd like a gummy worm on top of mine.

*snap snap*

Everybody wins. I say pick a topic each week (love advice, dog advice, cupcake advice) and do something like formspring so we can submit questions. just my two cents, b/c i need cupcake advice.

Kris said...

Cupcakes are the only way I know how to make friends.

You should talk to your camera more often.

He thinks you're insanely charming.

Kris said...

It's a HE?

Uhoh. I thought he was a chick. After I stopped recording, I kept talking about girl stuff... I poured my heart out!

This changes everything.

Really great stuff. Honesty and imperfection is what people really dig.

I vote you stop slouching. smile more. Stop looking down. teeth aren't stupid. you look good.

Kris said...

Thanks DShan! :)

Anon - Yeah, I hate my slouching. but the camera was at an awkward angle on the windowsill. I'll smile more next time, promise.

Mike D. said...

I really enjoyed it and look forward to more. Beautiful, funny, and a little shy - you have not changed.

Kris said...

Thanks D. I'd like to think I've changed JUST a bit since I haven't seen you in a billion years. :)

Masuka said...

Kris.. You're gorgeous.
More confidence will = more natural delivery in front of the camera.


Kris said...

Thanks Sean. That was the least perverted thing you've ever said to me, and it made me smile. Miss ya.

Well, well, well, Kristen. You openly bear your insecurities to the world at large via YouTube. And you think this will help you overcome them?? Ha! Ha! I say!

Actually, I'm only kidding. Honestly, I'm always fascinated by individuals such as yourself who are willing to open up and share their lives to strangers as a means of therapy. Let's face it, you're in therapy kiddo! And this blog of yours is therapy. You like to bare your warts in front of us all and say, look, this is me, and I have to live with myself! What do you think of that?

And I say, fine. We all have our warts. But that's not what counts. You must find a way of life that focuses not just on yourself but how you can help others! And I guess you've explored that already with your writings some but could you do more of it? Could you spend your time being more compassionate towards others? Couldn't we all?

If you wish to grow and develop as a human BEING than you will grow in this direction and you will find a soul mate on the same path who matches your passion, conviction, and pursuit. It's the journey, not the destination.

As you spend time back at your parent's house, reevaluating your life and using video as a platform for expressing yourself, you might consider these words from a man who's 15 years your senior.

There is no one right way to live. But it took me a while to discover that and I recommend you spend time figuring out how to live your life with purpose and conviction so the next time you make a video for all of us to see, you can recount what actions you've taken to make your life more purposeful and more meaningful.

Just a suggestion!

P.S. I don't like you as a brunette. It looks fake. You're a blond and I look forward to the day when you go back to being one.

Peace. Out.

Kris said...

Gordon, I actually didn't dig your comments at all. Thanks, but no thanks.
