i am currently sitting in bed(now officially broken because i was dumb enough to think a futon would work as a makeshift bed, my assumptions were false of course) wondering why people are the way they are..
i mean, i completly understand that the things that happen in your life affect how youll act as an adult but why? why does everyone have to consistently take everything so seriously?
one of the reasons i feel so uncomfortable about myself. but though you might be thinking its me looking at posters of skinny beautiful women and having a silent pitty party in my room with millions of tissues around me and titantic playing on the tv,and with that i say you are completly incorrect.
you see, its basically like a chain reaction.
boys watch tv/look at media/ listen to music--they get an opinion of "this half naked girl whose skin and bones with unnecessarily large breasts is sexy"--therefore deeming it impossible for them to be intrested in say...a girl like me, so in turn

Blue jeans are comfy and something you can wear everywhere. I even like the waythey feel. I like my jeans. My favorites are Levis and wranglers or just about any jeans that will last through wear and tear. I don't like elastic but, like anyother pair. I like my overalls . The kind you can wear in summer. So, yes!!!!!! Jeans are my kind of wear.

[For my lifetime's best friend Brian,
on the first Veterans day he isn't here:
Friday, November 11, 2011]
This special day, to honor those who serve to defend,
Is your day, Brian; you too served, and you are a veteran.
I almost wrote "you were a veteran": but you still are,
Even though your life was made to end.

I have read the commendations you received,
During your army years.
You were an excellent medic, and you trained others.
How many injuries and wounds were healed--
Then--and as years continue to pass--
By the expertise that you imparted!
You were commended for your excellent work in that.
You were a first-class instructor and teacher.
You were a very smart man. You were quick-witted.
You yourself were such a fast learner--
Faster and better than you ever gave yourself credit for.

Ryan so-hot-he-barely-needs-a-last-name Gosling and Eva Mendes are acting very together these days, making out in Parisian cemeteries and holding hands at the airport. It's safe to say that their public display means that they're moving into boyfriend/girlfriend territory. But for us not-so-famous types, the situation is not always as black and white as getting our photo in print.

snowsuitLet this day mark the beginning of winter. No, it's not December 21st, nor is it snowing yet. I know it is the start of the season because I spent a half-hour this morning convincing my kid into his winter coat.Read More »from Be Honest: Do You Let Your Kids Wear Winter Gear That's Too Small?
He was mad that the down makes it "too fluffy and big." He was not convinced the built-in fingerless gloves would make cold-weather monkey-bar tricks a breeze. He oppressed that I made him stick a knit hat in his pocket, just in case.
While all this whining was going on, I was thanking the fickle gods of children's clothes that the spendy jacket I bought last year still fit. His wrists don't hang out of the sleeves naked, the back still covers his tiny hindquarters. It's a good coat, one fit for a Midwestern winter, and I don't mind investing in that kind of necessary snow-and-sleet gear. I just would really, really like it to last more than one season.
He's an only child, so there aren't siblings to hand coats up and down to so our family can reduce waste and costs when it
