My mother taught me

I have to be honest ladies.

I hate my mother, my foster mother.

I don't think I could say something like, "my mother taught me..." because in all sincerity I feel like I learned nothing from her. If I go into specifics about her, well let's just say, it won't look too good.

Really, honest. I just feel like she's taught me all with negativity. I learned from her mistakes, to be honest. There, it's said. My mother taught me life lessons not otherwise simple for a young gal…

Jack in the Crack commercials

Is anyone else offended by the Jack in the Box commerical as of lately?

Or maybe I am a sensitive feminist?

THIS kind of garbage we show to our young generation?

It starts with two girls chillin in their bedroom discussing a photo of "it being big."

"How big?" "real big"

Then it shorcuts to Jack telling guy friend to tell…

Oh Florida.

Is it me or does anyone else think that Florida is jacked up.

First it was with Casey Anthony and now well, Zimmerman. Maybe Florida is getting a bad rap as the bad state of the country. Truth be said, in these cases it was obvious of the public were justice wasn't served.

I wish things like this didn't happen, but they do people.

If a murder like this happened in Texas, you'd be sure to find Zimmerman a guilty man. The Casey Anthony story was another disgrace. Sadly,…

College Perks and Then Some

I thought once college was done you'd get a job and live life.

oh boy, REAL LIFE is not at all what its cracked up to be. AT ALL.

Cynthia Amaya wrote an article pertaining to the good news of a college education. I love the ambitious positive vibe about the article. However, it left me feeling desolated. Like, geez, I did that. I went to college. I wrote long hours, I did the requirements and look at me.

I have  no job. NO car. basically no life.

I need friends,…

Costa Rica accidently approves gay marriage.

Recent surveys show that most people in Costa Rica oppose gay marriage, yet, the bill passed under the noses of the lawmakers.

I stay neutral on this subject because any comment can turn into a war zone.

With that said, I want to know, how the potential of gay marriage spread to Costa Rica, maybe I am too sheltered or something, but the US is just incrementing laws to protect gays and lesbians and the like with the push of the marriage bill.

I don't know. I have a friend…

I am beautiful because...


To be honest, I was a little dissapointed that not many girls participated in this.

I wish many more did. I love the girls that decided to help me out. Still, maybe I could of done things differently. Like go up to several girls and ASK them straight out what makes…
