ant

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 ants…Every thing deserves to live.

chance

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 say, so what, if I feel awkward, so what. I have to give myself permission to just be. I have too much anxiety rolling around in my brain. It’s an awful way to live sometimes. But hopefully I can keep hoping and make things different. I’m giving myself the chance. Permission.

deer

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 in a dead deer was not very fun.

succeed

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.

thread

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 crocheting and been pretty crappy at other various craft projects, but maybe I could actually get sewing. I doubt it at the start because I am not math minded or good with my hands. But maybe, just maybe, it’ll work out. I’m taking the sewing machine definitely.

brick

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. That song has made me cry before. Anyone heard it? I think I kind of flock to sad, depressing songs sometimes. Eh, thats me.

canvas

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 going to be able to go out to dinner for my birthday: My parents found a great place that still had power…

keychain

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.

bench

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.

mango

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 think of mangoes because I think of how many times mangoes have cooled me off in the Florida swamp-ness.

outlet

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.

sage

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 of my kids being a “Sage”. I have said sage many times, and I want to keep saying it.

cards

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 myself? Very well then, I contradict myself.

coward

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 her in this posting. She’ll probably continue hiding and I’ll have to be the one to initiate conversation. Ugh.

suicide

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 not all the time, suicidal thoughts indicate a real want to commit. Thank you.

solved

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

recipes

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 of animal product. Be kind to animals please! Go veg. Thank you. Thank you very much.

drain

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 just need to keep telling myself positive thoughts. I can get through this. I won’t throw my life down the drain no matter how easy it seems to be in comparison to living a great life. It’s going to be worth it in the end. I just keep telling myself that.

edition

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.

whim

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 sounds like it could be good for my growth.

summer

Summer is a wonderful time in Florida. The palm trees are swaying, the beaches are full of people, and the sun is beating down on the pavement. Summers in Florida are extremely hot, but they’re also beautiful. I enjoy when all the seasons come, because they are all equally important and beautiful in nature.

wake

When I wake, sometimes I bake. Sometimes I take a look at the sun, but not directly. I am happy to wake up every day. Waking up today was kind of a task, sometimes it is for me, but I am happy to be alive. Sometimes when we wake we are too tired. That happens to me almost every day. I don’t want to wake up, but I do anyway. Wakeboarding is also a sport. Never tried it though.

blotches

Blotches is not a very nice word. It alludes to pimples, scars, just plain weird stuff on your face or body. If I called my freckles blotches that wouldn’t be a very nice word to call them. Some people call them angel kisses. I prefer to call them that. If I had blotches on my face, though, I’d hang my head high. I always do. If you have blotches, don’t worry, I like you!

ragged

My cousin once had a screen name that featured the word ragged. I never hear people using it otherwise. Perhaps it is a word that should be brought back, kind of like the high five. That’s all I really have to say about ragged. A word that should be used more often.

support

Support is extremely important for humans. Every human needs support. I feel like people aren’t supported enough.
