"I'm smart. I know I can succeed. I just need a chance. A chance to climb out of this place I've born in. Everyone I know are angry and tired. They're trying to survive. But I know that there is a world out there that is better, that's better developed. And I want to live in it."

There is nothing more true than this statement! I know that if I never took the chance I did over a year ago, I would not be where I am today. I am so proud of that major step I took to better myself. Sure I doubted the whole challenge, but I felt like I had no other choice.

Even though I was never there for The Beatles I am the biggest fan there ever is and ever will be.  I know everyone says this but I don't know if I'm even a fan.  I wish I could have known them and become as talented as they are.  I know everyone says they're old, and there is nothing wrong with new music, except I am waiting for someone was amazing as The Beatles to start a new revolution. by pearlie

And today I realized that I am the biggest hypocrite of them all. I tell everyone to keep holding on, that there is light at the end. That everything gets better as long as you continue to wait. I always tell people to have hope. That they need to keep trying because it is too early to give up, that they have so much to live for. Then there is me, and I am barely holding on. by sylvia alvarez

Okay, so... I know I've done the whole... broiled grapefruit thing, which  is pretty amazing. But, as I've found out, there are actually a lot of  people out there that cannot enjoy grapefruit for one reason or another.  Yes, even a few in my own family! Now, I looove peach season. I think that  I may have mentioned that once or twice before. So naturally, I've been  waiting rather eagerly for the prices of peaches to go down and huzzah! It  finally happened this last weekend!  I rather enthusiastically plucked a few gorgeous ones up and immediately  began planning. Though... I pretty much knew exactly what I wanted to try.  Honey roasted peaches!... by carlasisters

I have always intuitively realized this. It definitely makes life easier when you view others in this light. Ponder what hurt them, what tragedy occurred that brings about such anger? It turns from being angry back to empathizing. Even hoping to make someone feel better by trying to see things from their injured perspective. Sometimes the angriest person you've met is the softest and most vulnerable soul you'll ever encounter. I know because I married an angry man and he really is a softie. by sharron

How I feel today. Treading water right now. Every morning is a struggle, every day I try to convince myself it's going to be better. Here I am, stressed out, mentally done with this. My stomach hurts so much. I'm going to fins out what it is. Because I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired. It's so hard when you're not doing anything wrong and your body is just getting bigger..... I don't know. I'm just sad today. #Padgram by Mopar Mo

And SSMBB was about a guy who joined the foreign legion and who - in the part we haven’t seen - returned looking a LOT worse for wear. Maybe homeless, definitely psychologically damaged.    My theory is that they left this out from the short film, in order to make it into a feature film, i.e. Samarkand. :)  I hope so, I really want to know what happened. by margret

For the ladies out there that don't know how to fishtail yet! It's easy just time consuming if you have long hair and lots of it! Tip: Usually the smaller sections you take out the better, but if you want to make it look like a regular braid (but not if you know what I mean?) take out slightly bigger sections! :) by leann
