You know what I love?
Oh my god!
Hi five, girl!
Yes, self-esteem is great, but even more than that
I love hanging out with my homies.
So when I go on Facebook and I see that they have all hung out without me,
I get sad.
Sometimes my feelings of being left out are totally justified.
Why wasn't I invited to the family reunion?
And sometimes they're not.
Why wasn't I invited to your bachelor party?
You're not a dude.
I get so worried about being like excluded from something or forgotten about
that sometimes I try to pre-emptively get myself invited into things.
Oh yeah, I heard about this really cool place in Malibu where you can do Go-karts.
Oh my god! That sounds like so much fun!
We should do, we should all go together like, as friends
and hang out and do that.
Let's do it!
Why don't we put it on the books right now?
Like I have Tuesday night free,
what about you guys?
Get out your phones.
Look at your schedules.
Let's make a plan!
But then I realize how stupid this is
because none of my friends are gonna intentionally exclude me from anything.
Like if they don't invite me maybe they just don't think its my jam
or maybe it was a mistake.
I know these things can happen,
people just forget.
'Cause I forgot 2 days ago.
I was throwing a party and my friend heard about it and messaged me
and she was like, "Hey, I heard you were having this party and I'm not invited.
Totally understand if you don't want me there
but I think you just forgot about me?"
And she was right.
I totally did and I felt so bad and I apologized and invited her
but it kind of change the way I think about it, you know.
I was like oh
now instead of feeling sad and left out when people forget to invite me to things.
I'm just going to plan as many activities as possible,
so then I'm constantly hanging out with people as much as I can stand them.
Is this good advice?
I don't know,
but it's really working for me right now.
I'm Anna Akana.

小編人生不能沒有 Facebook 跟 Instagram,每天都要滑滑滑,看看大家在做什麼,深怕錯過與朋友的連結,所以看著 po 文、默默在家流眼淚、幻想著朋友開心的場景,是絕對經歷過的 > < 小編也懂 Anna~~~

esteem 可以當作動詞或名詞,在這裡是當名詞用,意思為「尊重、尊敬」,所以 self-esteem 就是「自尊心」。esteem 通常搭配 hold 一起使用,hold someone in high/great esteem 意思為「非常尊敬某人」。
People held those warriors in high esteem because of their triumphant return.

esteem 當作動詞用時有兩個意思,一個是「尊敬、尊敬」,和 respect 意思相同。
The King was highly esteemed by people for his wisdom and benevolence.  

Not only did colleagues like to work with Andy, the manager also esteemed him a trustworthy person.

bachelor 在這裡指的是「單身男子」,影片中所提到的 bachelor party 就是男生的「告別單身派對」(辦在婚禮前夕,為新郎舉行且只有男性朋友可以參加),也可以稱作 stag night。而 bachelorette party 則是女生的「告別單身派對」,也可以稱作 hen night 或 wedding shower。
「舉辦」party 的這個動詞,通常使用的是 give/have/throw/host/hold。

costume/fancy dress party 變裝派對
housewarming party/kitchen shower 新居落成派對
baby shower 為準媽媽(寶寶出生前)所辦的派對

Bachelor 的另一個意思是「學士」學位,而碩士學位是 Master,博士學位則是 Doctor,這些字通常使用大寫。

B.S. = Bachelor of Science 理工科學領域的學士
M.B.A. = Master of Business Administration 工商管理/企業管理碩士
E.M.B.A. = Executive Master of Business Administration 高階管理碩士

不過長大之後,越來越享受獨處的時光,也常常當主揪的人,這樣也不用擔心會被漏掉了!(不過揪人有時候真的就像 Anna 一樣,可能會不小心忘掉某位朋友,超不好意思的啦!)
