On Reading

Now that I have graduated from college I sort of have all this free time that I just don't know what to do with. I say sort of because I know that my time will eventually be filled up with a job (boo) but even then I'll probably still have a lot of time. I've been doing a lot of Googling for new things for me to try, places to go once I really start driving, DIY crafts that need to be made.

I'm looking forward to catching up on all the reading that I never got to do. I read everything…

Revisiting with Lizzie Velasquez: Q&A

“Though she be but little, she is fierce.” –William Shakespeare.



Lizzie Velasquez is a twenty five year old fierce motivational speaker, author, and a special inspiration. What makes Lizzie so special? Well that can be found on the outside and on the inside. On the outside, Lizzie is special because she was born with a rare genetic disorder, -- so rare it remains undiagnosed. The disorder prevents Lizzie from gaining any body weight at all. On the inside, Lizzie is special because… Continue

Adult Acne

Why does acne appear as you head into your mid-twenties?

 

It not only makes me feel bad about myself, but it is infuriating.

I never dealt with acne, pimples, scars on my face as a teen, luckily.

 

I know it has to do with what I put into my body....but why does it have to happen when an important event is about to happen?

 

I drink water....and loads of coffee. There, that is my problem. The coffee is killing my baby face D:!!!

It…

When to Know its Time to Part With Your My Little Ponies.

Cutie mark? Check. Over sized twinkling eyes? Check. Sparkly pony hairbrush? Check. Trash bag? ……Not so much. If you’ve got more plastic pony paraphernalia than you have friends, it might be time to heed Twilight Sparkles’ kind advise,

 “ Friendship is magic”. Go find some.  In order to begin your quest for non-plastic playmates, you will need:  self-control, a trash bag or lightly decorated canvas tote and some tissues.

The Language of Flowers

        Hello! So I'm reading this book called "The Language of Flowers" by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (she has the same first name as me!), and it introduced me to the fun, kind-of-forgotten "flower code" (also known as floriography). Flowers have a language of their own, expressing a sentiment in one form or another. I think it's a very cute and unique code that almost has a certain magic to it, a wordless language that is expressed through nature's beauty.

       The language of…

Divorced Parents

For all of us who have divorced parents, we know it is not the easiest thing to endure. We have to go from house to house, readjust to the living environment, and worst of all, may sometimes have to hear our parents fight.

Life is already pretty tough as it is, and it’s even harder when the two people you love so much aren’t together and may not get along.

But as anything, when we are in tough situations like these, we need to make the best out of life. I’ve always humored…

How Do I Say Goodbye?

This summer, my best friend is transferring schools. He's going away to Texas Tech in Lubbock. I am going to miss him so much, and I really have no idea what I am going to do without him. But I would never tell him to stay or tell him things for him to feel bad, because I really want him to leave. He wants to leave, and I want what's best for him. I've known him since middle school, but we really actually became friends my senior year in high school, and being…
