The Last Of Us - this game was awesome, but the ending was weak. It really makes me wonder if there will be a second. (Fingers crossed.) Also, i thought it was interesting that the cordyceps parasite that takes over, is a real thing! Look it up! by batjas88

Wig Worry Part 2: "What’s most odd about the experience was that a lot men seemed to feel entitled to my time, appearance and even my groceries... there were plenty of times where men would go out of their way to demand something of me... We keep teaching boys it’s okay to behave this way. “Boys will be boys” is not a motto that belongs in any society." by jolene

The Good Wife's Guide is rumored to be an article that was published in a housewife's magazine or homemaking book or something of that nature. It's known for being pretty sexist but is there some good advice in there? by wanda

When Your Heart Breaks~ It's happened to me before, but this time it hurt. As I was combing hair, brushing teeth, & preparing for my day, I was singing along with the songs on my favorite Christian radio station. For me, singing along is a natural part of my morning routine. Since I know most of the songs by heart, the words roll off my tongue as easily as toothpaste glides onto my toothbrush. Admittedly, sometimes, neither are given much thought. But, there was that one line...(Read more here) by sharron

I Used to think I was the strangest person in the world, but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you. #Frida Kahlo by Mrs.What

Susans Free Comparing Monsters - an Activity for I Need My Monster There are a variety of great language skill building activities that can be done with any book you read in your classroom. On the way to understanding complete story elements and construction students need to be able to describe characters and settings and to compare and contrast two or more of each. I usually begin a discussion of comparing and contrasting by having students use two shirts they can see in the classroom at the time two students; anything they can visually reference and find familiar. We then apply the same skills to comparing the characters in the book. A great book for comparing and contrasting is I Need My Monster by Amanda NollandHoward McWilliam I created this comparison chart for a student of mine. I hope you find it helpful too. Just drag it to your desktop and print. Have fun and Keep on Talking! Find me at Kidz Learn Language by graciela

This rare carved panel was found in the Bowcastle area, and depicts a coifed female head in profile. The arch above the head is typical of the "Romayne" style, typical of the first half of the 16th century.    While is is possible that this may have been part of the ship, as there was a fashion for decorating warships with ornate decoration, it's considered more likely that this would have been part of an item of furniture.

I hate when people call her a hoarder. She collected because she had such an interest in another world. In "Part of Your World" she says it doesn't matter how much she has in her collection, she wants to be part of that world. Yes, she may just be a fictional character in an animated movie, but she isn't a hoarder. This movie is something I genuinely love and I hate when people bash on it. by sharene

This is part of why I think the claim that religion does no harm is false. Far too often it makes people hurt or kill others. I've also noticed that some who believe in an afterlife are a bit callous about the suffering of others since they think it's going to be sorted out when they die. by florence

Gandalf: “Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.” - J.R.R Tolkien by josephine

Slow cooker Chicken Adobo. I edited the recipe for a lesser serving size, but found that the amount of sauce was going to be too little. So I kept adding more of the liquid ingredients, tasting along, until it was going to be enough and until it tasted right. There is only one dish that I love extra sauce with and it is this one. Yum. by leola

All I know is it has been following me for days. I don't know what /it/ is, or why it's following me, but I hate it. I don't even know how got here. I sprint into the camp, which I've been headed to for days on a whim-- a hope that maybe it could be a safe haven. I've heard stories: this crippled kid named Basil who I was convinced was obsessed with me had been telling me constantly to go there for the summer. That was before they took my mom, before I was alone. I don't remember any of the past two or three years, but I know that I have to get here. Out of reflex that I don't understand, I push toward the creature with my hand, and the ground moves to push it backwards. As I pass the gates, the monster tries to follow me, but it slams into some unseen force. Filled with exaustion and sheer relief, I collapse to the ground, trying to catch my breath. I feel a tap on my shoulder, and jump, grasping my knife. "Who...who are you?" I question. I'm terrified of all these faces surrounding me, but again, out of a reflex I can't explain, my voice is calm and my hand is steady. "What was that??" by LiesbethLap

It takes a long time to get over betrayal. Be kind to yourself. It's not easy but it can be done, and youre going to have set backs.. Just remember that the real TRUTH is not what he tells anyone. The truth for him is a whole bunch of lies he spews to serve his own Narc agenda… Don't feel replaced, remember, he will do this to everyone.. No one is special to him.. But you are special to GOD and to me.. :) by proteamundi
