Let me be content

Keep searching and asking, then acting. Don't think on the purpose too much and you'll find meaning.

EVEN if meaning, to you, goes beyond school intellect or a stationary, habitual work ethic. The road to finding yourself is a journey.



Before you know it, you'll be so consumed with you that he/she will be that blurry dot in your life.



That dot that was a speck.

That speck that  became a blob.

That blob that  became a figure.…

Being a leader & a volunteer

 You would think volunteering might be a lot of work or boring but, honestly it's a lot of fun. Not only do you make small connection with the girls at camp, but you also meet the creative magical imagination of their brain. Also while the girls at camp are learning cool things, I am  learning fantastic things as well that I wish someone would have teach me or expose me at such a young age. I have learned how to edit a video, the…

Dear editors of magazines,

I think you should not Photoshop because we then the people that are reading the magazines we can't see what their real body/face looks like. I also think you should not Photoshop because some people that are in the magazines that think they look good and fancy but really they are not. I don't think you should Photoshop because some people like how they turned…

Dear Editor in Chief

   

        Dear Editors of magazines,

I think Photoshop is the cause of why girls are now more than ever insecure. Mainly the models that appear on the magazines are skinny, fit and flawless. But is that really them? Upon seeing all the beauty that they carry, young readers might get influenced to look just as the models do. Seeing someone with their dream body gives them hope that…

To the Magazine Editor's

Dear Editor and Chief,

    What is the whole point of Photoshopping models? I think the true beauty in a person is the personality and the models should who they are and just do whatever is comfortable. Or if you want the models to be skinny choose those who are skinny and not photoshop the skinny ones. And you know whatelse you could do you can choose the model you want in your photo and put them on a diet and make them exercise so they could get skinny on their own and not make them…

Dear editors of magazines,

I think that you should stop using photo shop and let your models inner beauty show and not just technology. Every human has there flaws, we  aren't perfect, no one is. When you don't use photo shop your models can find there confidence in them self instead of looking at them selves as a techno made person on magazines. You just have to except that no matter what that we are…

To the editors of magazines

Dear magazine editors,

What is the point of Photoshop? Is it to sell your product, or making people feel bad about who they are? The latter is what you are doing. Everyone has flaws, trust me. Even you do. Our flaws are what makes us human. But covering that up raises the expectations on how people should look(which is not exactly human) , and if people are no where near in how beautiful those Photoshoped models look( which is…

photoshop

Dear editors of magazines,

  I am writing to you today because I think that you photo-shop too much. Photo-shopping is an insult to some people.It is rude to make a person they aren't photo-shopping is bad. It is bad to put a picture of a person and change everything about them by not putting their real face and body. There is no perfect when it comes to a human body, it just doesn't exist. People actually care about the way…

Healthy Chica Camp: why is juicing good

I just saw this movie called Fat, Sick, Nearly Dead, which is about a guy named Joe from Australia who weighed about 400 pounds and he wanted to loose weight. And he kept taking pills for his rash which could lead to addiction and was almost nearly dead. His idea was to juice fruits and vegetables and drink that for 60 days so that he could loose weight and it was a quick and easy way. His friends in Australia said that he was crazy to just drink juice all day for 60 days straight. He went…
