    Ode to Finding Blue Rain

      I have been hearing much talk about the new movie called “Precious.”  It is based on a novel called “Push” and if you have never read this book I suggest that you do.  Now I haven’t seen the movie but if the movie is true to the...

    I Am Precious!

    I am precious! Because God has created me that way. I know it took for me some time to know that I am. However, God has always has its own ways of telling us or reminding how precious we are no matter how much we denied it. We often denied it because we are blinded by bad...

    I'm Precious I Like Me

    Being precious is important to me.  The paths I have taken in my life have been uncertain and painful.  My journey has been fraught with highs and lows.  I couldn't have continued in the direction I was going.  I was losing my life in a battle with mental illness and...

    The Nothing

    It's one thing to use sociopathic and narsasistic tendencies as an excuse or light heartedly to express myself, but dealing with the emptiness inside is a never ending battle and even when I'm deceiving myself that it's happening for me, inside, it's just not. I am a tropical...

    I usually give up on weight loss

    because I have too much to lose and I like to see drastic results. I sometimes feel that losing the weight takes too much time and for me, it would take too long, so usually I get fed up and quit. I weigh 225 lbs. and I know time would be against me because I'm already 29 and I...

    Community College

    My Sister And Best Friend

    My sister and I wasn't always friends, growing up. We were rivals and use to fight like cats and dogs! But, in our teen years, we had buried the hatched (and no, not in each others backs! =p), and we became close friends. :-) From our teens, we've been through so many hardships...

    Correct me if I'm wrong but this is one of the things that a man isn't really allowed to say about himself in public right?

    I Am Precious Too!

    Why I Am "precious"

    I feel ugly. I'm very insecure. I'm not as big as her but I've always been on the curvy side. I dont have many friends. I keep to myself and dont have many people to talk to.
