• dandyjams commented on the post, ant 6 years, 11 months ago

    I used to kill ants upon the sight of them. Then I became a Buddhist. I have come to believe that no creature, even an ant, should be killed, especially with no purpose for it. I used to be an after school care worker and I would get very peeved at the kids for killing […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, chance 6 years, 11 months ago

    Today I am giving myself the chance to make myself a better person, to live to my full potential, and to take care of myself. I am letting this be the day that I fully let myself take care of myself, and most importantly, let myself be vulnerable, if I don’t know what I should […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, deer 7 years ago

    There are a lot of deer sightings in Florida, and up where my aunt lives in New York too. My aunt’s boyfriend hunts deer for fun. I don’t see the necessity in killing animals; I believe it is extremely cruel and wrong, however, I still like her boyfriend, he’s a nice guy…but seeing him carry […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, succeed 7 years ago

    Succeeding is different for different people; there is no way to succeed ultimately. Some say succeeding involves a good job and a nice house; that is just the American way. Think about ways that other cultures view success. It may open your eyes a bit.

  • dandyjams commented on the post, thread 7 years ago

    My grandma always head thread around, working on sewing projects and whatnot. I don’t think I am a very “crafty” person myself. My grandma wants to give me a brand new sewing machine, and I really want to be able to use it, but I don’t even know if I can. I’ve already failed in […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, brick 7 years ago

    The song “Brick” by Ben Folds Five is pretty sad. It’s about a girl getting an abortion and keeping it a secret from the boyfriend’s perspective. The last few lines are “She broke down, and I broke down, cause I was tired of lying”. What a huge thing to have to hide from your family. […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, canvas 7 years ago

    I love to paint oil on canvas. My parents bought me an easel and some canvases for my birthday, my 16th birthday, the year that Hurricane Charley came and wiped out almost everything near my house, the power was out, there was nothing to do except paint, and painting wasn’t bad, that and I was […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, keychain 7 years, 5 months ago

    I used to collect keychains. I didn’t even have a car. Just the idea of having lots of keychains to choose from when I did have a car was exciting. I remember I used to like the “#1” shaped keychains the best, they were rubbery and bright and interesting.

  • dandyjams commented on the post, bench 7 years, 5 months ago

    A park bench. A work bench. Bench warmers. These are different things that come to mind for me when I see the word bench. I like to imagine park benches mostly; beautiful works of wood in the middle of a scene of flowers and shrubs. That’s how I like to think of benches.

  • dandyjams commented on the post, mango 7 years, 6 months ago

    I love mangoes. The word mango is delicious, just like the fruit. I could say mango a million times and not get sick of it. It evokes feelings of exotic heat. Only a mango’s juicy flesh could quench the thirst that comes from such heat. I think of my home state of Florida when I […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, outlet 7 years, 6 months ago

    Journaling, writing poetry, and singing are my creative outlets. I also use exercise as my outlet, to get all of the anxiety out of my body. Don’t recommend sticking a fork in an outlet. Is this a French-derived word? The more that I look at it, the more I see French. Interesting.

  • dandyjams commented on the post, sage 7 years, 6 months ago

    Sage. I don’t know much about it, except it’s an herb? I love the way the word sounds. I know you can burn sage, but I’ve never done it. There’s a sportscaster on SportsCenter with the name Sage. I like it for her, but I wouldn’t name my kid Sage. I just can’t see one […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, cards 7 years, 6 months ago

    I love picking out cards, and giving them, but simultaneously I hate cards because they often contain another’s sentiments and they’re so commercial. I made my own card for my husband for Valentine’s Day and I’m glad I was able to make it so personal. I’ll always love picking out cards though. Do I contradict […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, coward 7 years, 6 months ago

    My cousin is a coward. She participates in ignoring me along with my mother and pretends like she doesn’t know what’s going on when I confront her about it. She hasn’t talked to me in weeks–I referred to her as a coward a few days ago so I thought it was perfect to talk about […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, suicide 7 years, 6 months ago

    I have thought about suicide many times. It’s a hallmark of bipolar disorder. I have been hospitalized for my suicidal thoughts and believe that suicide is not a coward’s way out but a real perceived need for some people. Please, if any of your friends says they want to commit suicide, get help. Most, if […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, solved 7 years, 7 months ago

    What to say about solved? I have solved arguments, but never something like a mystery or anything. I’m a pretty ordinary girl. I solve my own problems I guess. That’s all I really have to say. This word didn’t get me too spicy. Thank you

  • dandyjams commented on the post, recipes 7 years, 7 months ago

    I love collecting and making recipes. I am a vegetarian, so vegetarian and vegan recipes are the bomb in my book. I go to all sorts of veg websites and try out their crazy wacky awesome recipes. It’s one of my hobbies. I love making things that are delicious but not made of any kind […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, drain 7 years, 7 months ago

    Life can be a drain. Every day the world seems out of control for me. I don’t know what I’m doing, it feels like. I try not to throw my life down the drain. Ruin it completely. But anxiety grips me tight. I try to fight it, but I don’t know if it’s possible. I […]

  • dandyjams commented on the post, edition 7 years, 7 months ago

    New editions are just reasons to make more money off of something. The new millennium edition of a Disney movie isn’t going to make the movie better. It’s just fancy crap in front of the same thing. Advertisers are ridiculous. America is a ridiculous place.

  • dandyjams commented on the post, whim 7 years, 7 months ago

    Sometimes we, as people, do something on a whim. I don’t personally like to. I like to plan everything out. I like to have a schedule, and when that schedule is deviated from, I get a little peeved. I need to work on that, maybe do something on a whim from time to time. It […]
