He listens. He knows how to remain silent and let things soak in, without feeling like he needs to be the one running the conversation. He hears people, he hears you, instead of believing that he should be the one talking, the one in charge.
When you’re talking to him, he’s not zoning off and planning what he’s going to say next. He’s listening to you, processing every word you’re saying, because he wants to be someone you can trust, someone you can count on to hear you and understand you and be the sounding board that you need.
He’s contemplative. He’s aware, not only aware of himself but aware of the things going on around him and the things going on thousands of miles away. He refuses to be ignorant. He refuses to be comfortable in a safe, easy life. He wants to understand that the…

All week your skin has been looking flawless and this morning you woke up feeling great. You may even be werrrrkin’ it to some Yonce and BOOM you notice a pimple (and what seems to feel like the world’s largest zit––but probably isn’t)! After a few moments of panic the haunting question occurs…. Can I cover this up or will it make my skin worse? Have no fear, there are a lot of products out there that will cover up blemishes without creating more of a breakout.
The first thing you’ll want to do is to cover up the redness of the blemish. Most concealers have a thick creamy consistency which isn’t the best to put onto an already irritated area. Luckily for you, there are concealers out there formulated with acne treatment! These are great because they aren’t as heavy on the skin and…

1. You play with me at night before going to sleep. You can’t get caught fiddling with me at work. You only let a select few people touch me. What am I?
2. What’s a four-letter word that ends in “k” and means the same as intercourse?
3. I start with a “v” and every woman has one. She can even use me to get what she wants. What am I?
4. I come in a lot of different sizes. Sometimes, I drip a little. If you blow me, it feels really good. What am I?
5. What’s in a man’s pants that you won’t find in a girl’s dress?
6. You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do. What am I?
7. What’s long and…

I recently read an article that mentioned how it was important to enjoy life being single and in my 20s. Since Adam and I aren’t getting back together right now and I am 21, I am planning on enjoying this. I’m at the beach right now, so this week, I am planning on going Parasailing and then seeing what else I can do. When I get back home, I plan on going to the tanning bed to get a tan.. (I burn easily) And I wanna cut my hair a little bit and darken it but Mom is being stubborn about the hair.. But I plan on doing stuff that I can’t really do with a boyfriend. I want to enjoy this. Go on dates. Not stick with just one guy. I wanna better me. I wanna do a whole bunch of Stuff that is on my bucket list. Yes, I have a bucket list. (My family actually laughed when they found that out.) I wanna work out and get in shape. I wanna stay in shape. I wanna expand the things I try.
So far, since I’ve been single, I have done or want to do: (this will be a running and updated list.)
Cut and Color hair
Get in Shape
I need to realize this! It’s something hard to understand and remember when things go wrong and not the way you want them to.
You deserve better than someone who is afraid to commit to you. It may seem like enough for now. You’re just taking things slow. Oh, how I know those little phrases of “one day” and “we just need time.”
You believe them.
And I’ve believed them.
But you’re not a plan B kind of girl.
You need to know that you’re not the invisible one standing in the back who gets chosen last.
You’re the girl who the team captain will be frantically hoping doesn’t get picked by someone else before he gets a turn. You’re a first-pick kind of girl. And no one worth having sits back and lets those girls wait around.
‘Cause every good man knows that the good ones get gone fast.
He should be jumping out of his skin in anticipation to call out your name and say “I pick you.”

1. You seek their company (spend time with them)
2. You talk for hours (talking and listening)
3. You pray for them
4. You think about them
5. You become best friends
6. You discuss issues of life
7. You have a servant’s heart about them
**You will love the ones you seek out.**
When what you do becomes a habit or duty, the love wanes.
Stated above is a list that was made in my small group at Church.
I realized that I do love people (friends) but I don’t do all that is required for loving someone. I also realized that the ex that I am still in love with, I remember him mentioning how talking to me became a habit and maybe that’s why he quit loving me. We would talk for hours but we didn’t spend any time together, physically. I claimed he was my best friend but I wasn’t his towards the end. I’m slacking in my duties to my friends that I love.
But this works with any relationship that you have: parents, friends, siblings, boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, grandparents, mentor, etc.
Do you feel as if this list is correct? Would you add anything else to it? Comment below on your thoughts.
You told me once—
You told me once that, you loved me with all your heart.
But not long ago, you tore me apart.
You told me once that, I was the girl you wanted to marry.
How can you say that to me if you only planned on us being temporary?
You told me once, our future kids’ names.
But now I feel like you were just playing games..
You told me once, how I made you happier than you had ever been.
Playing me like a fool, should be your biggest sin.
You told me once, that you were dumb for letting me go.
But now I’m left with all this misery and woe.
You told me once, you would never hurt me.
That we were meant to be.
You told me once, how you couldn’t wait to talk to me when you got off work.
Now, I’ve seen, I’ve fallen, and can’t get over, a jerk.
I am learning how to quilt! It’s so complicated.. Nana took me to the store to buy some quilting stuff and it cost $50 and she was like “you better use this stuff and not quit since it’s costing me this much”… great.. no pressure!
1) I love when I hear about people who are doing something right in the world! Like this 9 year old who decided to open up his own animal shelter in his garage and he has raised so much money that the town is now building an animal shelter.
Ken’s mission is simple and straight-forward: “The official at the pound said most dogs are put down because only 20-30% of owners claim their dogs, and no animal welfare organization is doing something about it. I want to save as many of those dogs as I can from being killed for no reason.”
Ken says, “Some very kind people who saw these pictures donated money to help me care for the dogs. We got enough money to get the dogs I was feeding off the street, feed them high quality canned food, and provide them with veterinary care. They gained a LOT of weight, their open wounds healed, and their fur grew back. They also learned not to be scared of humans.”
2) Here is another story of some good people!
A man who was diagnosed with leukemia, loves walking his dog. But since he was diagnosed, he gets tired easily when he walks. So his neighborhood starting setting chairs in their yards or driveway for him to have a place to sit if he needed it on his walks. That is the sweetest thing ever! I love old people and I would have definitely been the person to have started this incredible trend!
The stupid news!
I find it hilarious some days when I hear about people doing stupid things. So here is your stupid news of the day!
A Manhattan man is suing the city of New York, along with a coffee chain, a New Jersey university, and an airport, for $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
“Anton Purisima filed his two undecillion dollar lawsuit (that’s $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) last month, after his middle finger was supposedly bitten and infected by a “rabies-infected” dog on a city bus. A “Chinese couple” took photos of him without asking, and he’s routinely overcharged for coffee at LaGuardia Airport. (This is apparently related to the dog bite.)”
I am learning how to use Gimp because I cannot afford photoshop. I am having the hardest time trying to find tutorials that teach me how to make borders on gimp. Also, Gimp is so confusing that the world of tutorials is very limited and so it makes it harder on me, a newbie, learning gimp.
I am also trying to find out how to create a website layout in Photoshop/Gimp and then code it in html. I know html, I just do not know how to create a layout and then code it.
