Feeling Sad

I have been blogging for almost 2 years. And I thank Gladys for encouraging me to blog. I never knew about blogging until she told me about it. She said that she was making money by blogging. Since wala akong ginagawa sa bahay, I start blogging.Gladys and I know each other for 9 years now but we haven't seen each other in person. We used to chat on yahoo. We used to hop into one chat room to another. We did some silly things, we laugh and cried together at times. She got married a year any haft years ago( if i am not mistaken) and move in New Mexico USA. I was so glad she is finally close to me. And I have been planning to go and visit here.

She became busy lately, she gave up blogging I think, she got a real job. She have been busy, we talk on the phone once in a while, we email. She emailed me the other day and I did respond. Today I got an email from her saying that they are moving to Hawaii :((. I am kind of devastated , for I haven't see her, and now they are moving to hawaii. Her husband is on Navy by the way (Hmm is it, I think so) if not correct me sis. Anyway , I hope I will still get to see her. I am feeling sad, but I still have hope.

Forgive Yourself After Hurting Someone

At some point we will all hurt people around us. Whether accidental or intentional it is important that both parties move on and try to reach a reconciliation.

Remember that it is impossible to go through life without hurting another person's feelings just as it is impossible to go through life without being hurt by another person. Acknowledge what you did to hurt this other person, but do not dwell on the problem for too long. You have to let it go. Learn from the experience. Take positive steps about your behavior and try to understand other peoples points of view. Forgive yourself. Recognize that it is not their fault that you hurt them. Do not take your pain out on them.

Try to control your own emotions without suppressing yourself. An apology will be worth nothing to another person if it means nothing to you so don't apologize in an offhand manner. If you are uncomfortable approaching the person you hurt simply give it time. The awkwardness will fade eventually.

If you are constantly talking about this one person, other people will get very annoyed, so don't let this become the only thing that you have.If someone does not want to hear an apology, do not force it. Give them time they will come around eventually.

Avoid Repeating the Old Same Mistakes All over Again

Some of you may be thinking that you are complete failures when it comes to things in life. And you may very well be correct. You find yourself stuck in the same routine of making the same mistakes repeatedly. There are some things that you can do to make sure that history does not repeat itself when you mess up.

Make sure that the mistakes you are making are all that bad in the first place. It might be that you just think poorly of yourself. Write it down. Physically making a note of things and leaving it where you can see it will make a difference. It is like making a contract with yourself. Find a replacement. When you feel like you are about to do something stupid find something else to do instead. Think things out. Always think "why am I doing this?", or "what is my purpose?". Come to acceptance. Some people will just never change and you might be one of them. Sorry about your luck. YOU CAN ALWAYS CHANGE!!!. "SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO LET GO OF WHO YOU WERE TO BECOME WHO YOU WILL BE"

A man who always learns from his mistakes the first time is a perfect man. Nobody is perfect. It often takes a few tries to not repeat the same mistake or to even realize that something is a mistake.

Items in the article are suggestions and individual results may vary.

Make a Sauna Oil Blend

If you enjoy taking a sauna on a regular basis, you will be well aware of the energizing and cleansing benefits. To assist the detoxing process encouraged by being in a sauna, it is helpful to use a sauna oil blend that can be thrown on the sauna coals along with the water. The aroma that will be emitted will heighten the enjoyment of time spent in the sauna.

Obtain one or more of the essential oils that are considered to be beneficial for use in a sauna. These include lavender, pine, grapefruit, eucalyptus, lime, rosemary, lemon and birch.
Single method: If you are using just one essential oil, place 3 - 4 drops of your desired essential oil into the water bucket intended for the hot coals. It is now ready to be added to the sauna coals.
Blended method: If you are making a special blend that will release several essential oil scents at once, follow the suggested oils above and create a blend. One energizing and detoxing blend is:

* 3 drops pine
* 3 drops rosemary
* 4 drops lime
* 8 drops grapefruit
Experiment with your own blends using the suggested essential oils above, provided that you are confident with blending. If in doubt as to quantities, ask your oil supplier for advice or do research in a trusted aromatherapy manual. If you are unsure for any reason, stick with the single essential oil addition. With any blend, only add 3 - 4 drops of the resulting blend per bucket of water at a time. Sit back, relax and breathe deeply.

Eucalyptus is great for clearing the sinuses and the senses but beware its potency - it will release a very strong aroma, so take care to ask others in the sauna with you if this is all right. Use it by itself and sparingly - 1 - 2 drops per water bucket should be sufficient.Always use good quality oils. See your health food store specialist for advice.

It is generally recommended that you do not spend more than 20 minutes in a sauna at any one time. Pregnant women, those who are sick or convalescing and children should use caution when taking a sauna. Do not leave the essential oil bottles in the sauna room. This will quickly destroy the oil. Add the drops to the bucket before entering the sauna.

My Son's School Paper

My son Justin is 12 years old. He love to write comics. Here is an article he wrote for his school. It's about the first person on traveling the Oregon Trail back in the 1800's. He did not have any help writting this from anybody. I am very proud of him .



by Justin Rankin

There are a lot of dangers on the Oregon Trail and my Pa was there. There was accidents, attacks, and a lot of obstacles. If you don't believe me just ask my Pa and Ma.

My Pa and his friends ran into a lot of accidents. First, the cattle can be easily spooked and can trample people like my Pa. He ended up having a broken arm. Also people can end up killing themselves by accidentally pulling the trigger of their rifles while loading. Like that time my Pa told me he lost a friend when he was loading his gun . I'm glad my Pa didn't die or else I wouldn't be born and my parents wouldn't get married.

My Pa said the obstacles were even worse than accidents, It made travel really tough. First, my uncle told me stories that if your wagons weren't tough enough the wheels could be damaged from bumpy trails. Also, the rivers and streams could pull you down stream, like what happened to my pa, but someone at a fort nearby was giving away a free wagon.

There were very few stories about attacks that my pa told me about but there were some. My pa got a scar from a bear attack, but he shot it after the attack and had it for dinner. There were barely any Indian attacks. My Pa and his friends were attacked by Indians but convinced them that they won't hurt their land and take good care of it through a Indian who could translate three different languages.

In conclusion, there were a lot of dangers on the trail. This time they should have more forts and camp areas. I don't want to go on the trail after what I heard.

Health Care....Help!

People in the U.S. spend $2.4 trillion a year on health care, or about $7,900 per person. That's more than twice as much per capita as in other advanced countries. But few would claim those dollars are buying good value. The costs are a staggering burden for taxpayers, employers and families, and the recession is leaving more people without insurance.
Three perspectives on the Health Care issue: The main problem with the health care system is that costs keep going up -- We don't need to rip up the existing health care system and start over -- Decent health care ought to be a basic right.

Remove Clutter From Your Home

When you walk in the door, do you feel as if you're walking in a mine field, and that you have to tiptoe around boxes, or just plain junk? You cannot clean because of the clutter, so you just add more. It might be time for you to remove the clutter, and enjoy a tidy home.

Bring home three big boxes from your grocery store. Mark each box with magic marker: one Keep, one Sale, and one Charity. Also get a large, lined garbage can into which you can throw things that you don't want to keep, sell, or donate.Set a time limit for the session, say 15 minutes to one hour. Set a timer, and don't start more than you can finish in your allotted time. When the timer rings, make yourself stop, clean up, and then take at least a 15-minute break so you don't burn out. You can always decide to do another round after the break is over. Make three piles on the floor, to match each of the marked boxes. Later you probably will change some of the items in each box, or move them to another box, but that's for later. Take one room at a time. In each room make three piles on the floor, matching the labeled boxes. Pick up an item, decide which box to put it into, and toss it into the box.

Clean and vacuum the room. Look around and enjoy the neat and tidy area that you probably have not seen for months, or perhaps years, Sort through the keep box, aiming to put more into the charity or sale boxes. The rule of thumb here is if you have not used any item in a year or more, it goes! Add it to one of the other boxes, or toss it into the garbage. Bring the box for charity to your car. Call a charity of your choice and ask them to pick them up. Most of the time they will. Sort through and price items for your garage sale. This will save you time when you have the sale. Try to arrange the garage sale at an early date, so you will not be tempted to return the items to your house. Bring the filled garbage bags to the curb on the next pick-up day. Look around! No clutter, no mess, just a nice clean house. Keep it that way on a daily basis.

Do not save cosmetics once they are used, broken, or old. Throw them in the garbage immediately. After you finish reading the newspaper or magazine, throw it into the recycling bin. Do not leave them around. You will probably never go back to read it. When a toy breaks, and cannot be fixed, toss it immediately into the garbage. Everytime you purchase a new book, look for 2-3 books that you can part with. Donate them to your local library. Sell outgrown shoes and skates, or donate them to the needy. Organize so that making arts/crafts can be enjoyable. Make sure you have a place for everything. Small boxes can hold sewing threads or paint bottles. Put them away after you are done. The Flylady (http://www.flylady.net/) website gives advice and daily encouragement for decluttering. Use it as a resource to help keep yourself on track. Work on one room at a time so you don't get overwhelmed. If you're having a tough time throwing something out, try to think about how much you really need it. If it's something you'd want to show your children, consider whether you can just talk about it, or take a picture of it.

Ask for help when lifting heavy objects such as furniture or heavy boxes.
Make sure the items you are throwing away can be put by the curb. Sanitation services may not accept all items, and you may have to dispose of them in other ways.

Dress for a Social Event

Attending any social event, whether it be for the holidays, a wedding or just a social at home, can cause you to panic. At times like this, there never seems to be anything suitable in your closet to wear. Each event might need a different wardrobe, but on the other hand, they can be panic-inducing. It seems like there's never anything appropriate in your closet to wear to the many different events you'll be attending.

Cocktail Party

Attend a cocktail party wearing something a cocktail dress that is bit sexy showing a little skin. Perhaps a strapless form fitting dress without a belt, showing off the figure you worked so hard to get at the gym. Add a simple necklace, and matching hanging earrings and you will fit right into the spirit of the event.

Informal Event with Friends

Meet with friends for an informal get together is easy, and you can search the closet now for your favorite jeans, clean and pressed of course, a stretch button down, with a bit of neck skin showing will be suitable. Make it look like a new store bought outfit, by adding earrings, and a scarf around the neck, heels on your feet, and you will be dressed for fun and comfort.

Formal Event

Know that wearing floor length gowns at a formal affair is not always necessary these days, as short above the knees ensembles are also acceptable. Wear colors that you look best in, and dress up a simple dress with accessories, but do not over do it.

Office Party

Attend your office party, but do not overdo the outfit. With office colleagues, it is better to button up, than down. Wear a flattering wrap dress, worn with boots a little bit extra makeup, and enjoy the party. This is not a place for flirting, remember, you have to work with these people the next day, so limit your drinks to soft drinks and have fun.

Don't be too simple or too flashy. No matter what the occasion, always dress so you feel comfortable. No one can have fun in a too short dress, or too tight one. Dress for comfort first and the occasion next.A plain dress can always be dressed up with accessories, but a too gaudy dress can never be dressed down.

Do not show too much cleavage at an office party, drink very little so that you know what you are saying and doing all the time. Unlike other social events where you may never see them again, you have to work with these people so behave yourself.

Dress Up That Little Black Dress

The beauty about the little black dress is that you can create many dramatic looks with it. You can dress it from office to party with the right accessories.

Add jewelry. Additions that work well include a necklace that fits the neckline style of the dress, a brooch pinned in a cute spot, or an updo with daring earrings. The list is really endless as far as combos go! Put on pantyhose if it would even out your skin tone on your legs, and add a pair of cute shoes. The colors can easily be altered, depending on the look you're going for. Plain black and unadorned flats look more office casual while a pair of red high-heeled pumps can add a bit of excitement. Try an evening look. A little bit of glitter with costume jewelry can go a long way. Accessorize with jewelery, and you're good to go. Add a small clutch or handbag. A larger bag works for casual wear while a simple clutch in a dazzling color works for dressing up.

Wear a pair of white satin gloves and pearls with round toe pumps, if it is a shift style dress. Round toe pumps are an important bit for this look. It's very Audrey Hepburn and romantic, and pointed toes are a bit too fierce for such a soft and retro look. Try a very simple pair of black pumps, preferably rounded and a pair of chandelier earring with a dupioni silk wrap. The chandelier earrings and dupioni silk wraps look great when matching and a warm color. A belt at the waist creates great emphasis and interest to a plain black dress. Wear coloured (purple is always great) tights, with matching nail polish, hair accesories and/or jewellry to dress up any style of black dress.

Always keep it clean and ironed. Dry cleaning is a smart option. A lint brush is your best friend! Change into a different pair of shoes to change the look.Wear it with tights in autumn/the fall and winter for warmth or even a bit of color.

Don't over accessorize; all of the above ideas should be plenty for any outfit. The fit of the dress is everything since it is so plain... imperfections will stick out more if the dress is too tight or too loose, so take caution and don't be afraid to shed a few pounds if necessary.

Is There Something Wrong the Way Im Posting?

I don't to be sound that I'm whining or anything, but I just have to get this out of my mind hoping some bloggers experienced what I'm experiencing. Anyhow here what happened! I am a member of some blog marketing, blog advertising as you guys do. I don't want to mention any company name. Anyway, I'd post some paid task from them, I had done all the requirements that were needed. After submitting and pass through automated screening. After several days they came back to me saying they could approve my post because of too many grammatical error. Well okay i told myself, and recorrect my post , check for grammar error and so on and so fort, and submitted again. They rejected it 3x of course, by the third time they my post they rejected my post, it became permanent. So I lost it. I told my self I will try it again with some other task that I am qualify in. Since 11/08 until now, this case has been happening to me. I took 10 task from the________ blog marketing and yet they keep on rejecting my post. Even though I have done all the requirements that were requiring, but still all my post had been permanently rejected. It sucks! that's how I feel right now!

In the pass, I had posted some task from them and it got approved just fine. I have submitted a tickets but they said my post contain too many grammatical error even though I have corrected t over and over again. PPP and some other task form blog marketing, I didn't have any problem. But this one.... I don't really know what to think about it. Seem like I am just wasting my brain to advertise their task and rejected it anyway. Seem like, they just want you to write about the product and they don't want you to get any penny from it. Right now, even though I have some task that need to be done, I don't feel like doing it anymore.

Anyway, that is it. I hope I am not the only one who is experiencing about this issue.

How to Go to Bed Early

Are you tired of being sluggish and sleepy during the day because you didn't go to bed on time? If so keep reading!

Give yourself reasons for getting to bed earlier. One good incentive is recalling a time (or several) when your lateness in getting to bed had disastrous results: you overslept, didn't get enough sleep, became sick, etc. Also, if you're a habitual late-night (e.g. college student), this will give you a chance to see that rarest of natural phenomena: a sunrise! Determine what time you need to wake. "Well, most of the time I wake-up at 7:00, but sometimes I wake-up at 6:00 to do homework" isn't a good answer. If you planned on waking up at 6 then you would think that going to bed an hour earlier would make up for it, but you wouldn't be tired at said bedtime, so you would lay in bed for an hour and only get 7 hours of sleep. Your wake-up time needs to be the same every day except for rare occasions. Weekends are not rare.

Subtract 8 hours from the time you wake up. Determine how long it actually takes you to fall asleep. Don't glance at the alarm clock constantly to test this, just think whether you lay in bed for what seems for hours, or does your head barely hit the pillow? If the first one is the case you should subtract on hour from the time you have. If your head barely hits the pillow you only need about five minutes in bed before your -8 hour time. If you're somewhere in between 30 minutes should be a safe amount of time to be in bed before you need to fall asleep.
Do something calming before bedtime. The computer may be calming but your brain naturally makes you sleepy when it is dark, so by staring at a screen you are keeping yourself alert and wide-awake for longer than you should. A shower is an excellent thing to do before bed. Make your activity a sort of ritual. This helps. Be strict about your bed time. Force yourself to turn off the computer and TV before bed. By turning off the computer (not the monitor) you would have to wait for it to reboot and normally that is enough to persuade you to get off the computer. Throw the remote for your TV across the room or onto the floor (gently). Getting up to turn on the TV hardly seems worth it, huh?

After you have been following a bed time for a week or so, if you are still tired or very unwilling to get up in the morning you may still owe yourself a few hours. Let yourself sleep way in on the weekend. Do this a few times and you will probably no longer feel the need to sleep in on the weekends. That's good. That means that you get enough sleep every night. If you keep wanting to get up earlier than your wake-up time then go to bed a little later. Some people need less sleep than others and you may no longer have to go to bed an hour early anymore because of your routine. Reward yourself for your discipline. Treat yourself to a movie for every two weeks you successful get to bed early. Notice how much better you feel in your day-to-day life, in school, or at your job. If you're getting somewhere around 8 hours of sleep per night, and at the right time, you'll probably notice a dramatic increase in your physical and mental health!

Ensure that you are setting reasonable goals; some people cannot get 8 hours of sleep. Get a friend or spouse to see to it that you go to bed on time. They can hide the remote to the TV, or turn off the computer, or turn off the light where you are reading. Don't do this if you are irritable.Make sure you don't use the snooze button. Force yourself to literally jump out of bed every morning, even do a few jumping jacks to get the blood flowing.If you go to bed on time and get enough sleep you may suffer from poor sleep quality.

Children may require extra sleep. Teens who have a big test the next day will do better if they go to bed early instead of staying up late to study.Feeling constantly tired or regularly waking up early can both be symptoms of depression. If you are worried that this may be the case for you, consult your doctor or a therapist/counselor.Sleep deprivation can decrease your focus and ability to think properly by up to 33%.

Enjoy Early Morning

The early morning is a very special time of day. Even night owls get a delighted surprise at just how special this time of day can be, with its total stillness, the sounds of awakening birds.

Use this time to do something special before others wake up. If you enjoy writing, reading, or simply thinking, this quiet and uninterrupted time is a really ideal time of the day. Few others will awaken early enough to disturb you. Watch the news. Watching the news in the early morning gives you a jump start on your day. You already get a handle on the issues that are happening in your part of the world before others even get to know about it. You can already be in the great position of having analysed what the news means for your work, day, project, etc. and be moving into the next phase!

Exercise. The morning is the best time to exercise because your calories burn better. It is also a great way to get your body moving in the morning, when you are really refreshed. No more excuses about evening tiredness.Have a cup of your favorite beverage. This is a great opportunity to kick back, relax and enjoy that brew thoroughly rather than bolting down something scorching as you tear out the door in a hurry.

Watch the activity of the world waking up around you. Position yourself somewhere comfortable to watch the street and tree activity. You'll see birds and mammals waking up, others coming back to bed. You'll see people getting up and beginning their daily routines, opening storefronts, getting kids out the door, hanging out washing etc. It is wonderful if your need some oiling of the creative juices for writing or thinking! Watch the sun rise. The colors are simply incredible on a clear and fine morning. If it's gray and rainy, just count your blessings at how wonderful nature is for keeping the cycle of life going this way. And choose a bright outfit to counteract the gray for that day.

Billy Bob Thornton is probably your idol if you can't come to grips with the early morning. He isn't fond of the birds singing first thing at the day! To avoid this reaction and to really appreciate the early morning, get a good night's sleep. That cannot be stressed too much. Otherwise, you'll just feel groggy and grumpy.

How to Celebrate Easter

Easter has never really been much of a big deal, and you never celebrated it and you want to celebrate it now? You've celebrated it before and it turned out to be a horrible disaster? Well, here are some simple steps how to celebrate Easter!
Easter Holiday Specials.
Invite over a friend or family member to play an Easter game. Hide some eggs while your friend's eyes are closed. When you're ready, tell them to open their eyes and search for the eggs. If your friend finds them all, give them a treat and it's their turn to hide the eggs. Or you can use chocolate eggs and whoever finds the chocolate egg can eat it.

Be fun and creative with eggs! Paint the shell of the egg any color of your choice and let it dry. When it's done drying, give it as an Easter gift to someone or keep it yourself. That way,you will have an Easter decoration. Make some Easter gift baskets for your family and friends! Get a basket and some food wrap. Put some plashes, toys, candies,etc. into the basket and put the food wrap all over the basket. Also,to show more Easter spirit,leave a little note saying Happy Easter or something similar.

Plastic eggs may be better if you're clumsy. You can put glitter or googly eyes on your egg,or anything else that might make it a perfect egg. Hide eggs in places you don't expect them to be in. If using real eggs, ensure they are not in a place they could easily fall or break.If you use real eggs, hard boil them before hiding so they won't break. Make sure you get all the eggs! You don't want to find a rotten egg in your house in June.

Cooking Tips

Have you been frustrated by cracks in the top of your cheesecakes? Would you like tips to make flaky biscuits? Or would you just like to know a bit more about sweet potatoes? Try these cooking tips today for better results in your kitchen endeavours:

If you want biscuits that are crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside, you roll the dough thinly and fold it over once before cutting out the biscuits. They will then split open easily when you're ready to butter them.

To re- heat biscuits, put them in a well-dampened paper bag. Twist the bag closed and put in a 300º oven for several minutes or until warm.

For soft-sided biscuits, bake them in a pan with sides and put the biscuits close together. For crusty biscuits, bake them on a cookie sheet and separate them from each other.

Grease the sides of the pan before adding batter. The surface will not stick to the sides of the pan and crack when the cheesecake starts shrinking as it cools.

Run a knife or a metal spatula around the edges of the pan immediately after removing the cheesecake from the oven.

Drastic temperature changes can also cause a cheesecake to crack. Avoid putting a warm cheesecake from the oven into the refrigerator.

To disguise cracks, top the cheesecake with fruit or some other topping.

Since sour milk is not really sold in the grocery stores, when a recipe calls for sour milk, simply add 1 TBSP. of vinegar or lemon juice to regular milk. You can also use buttermilk to replace the sour milk called for in a recipes.

How to Act Cool when You Have Few Friends

Do you ever feel down-in-the-dumps because everyone else has an entourage while you have a few friends? Do you feel insecure because of your unpopular situation? Being cool is easy if...
Realize that everyone feels insecure, no matter how many friends they have. Ask yourself "Would I rather have a few really close friends, or a lot of acquaintances?" Remind yourself that while you don't have a huge group of pals, you do have some; they're your friends for a reason. Act like you are on top of the world. If you have an "I am awesome!" attitude, people will, most likely, assume that you are awesome. You might even acquire some new friends with this attitude! Understand that the number of friends you have isn't a measurement of how great of a person you are. You won't lose "points" in life if you don't have friends, and you won't gain "points" by having a lot of friends, either.

Have a positive attitude. If your friends or people in your life achieve something than show them praise.Listen very hard to when people are talking to you. Being a good listener will win you many friends. There is nothing worse than talking to someone who pretends to listen.If you find yourself just sleeping around, getting wasted and always wanting to party, this has to stop. Turn it around and start to have a plan and goals. People respect that attitude more than you know.

Don't act cocky, this is a big turn-off, and may offend people.
Make sure you don't hog conversations. Always express interest in other people's views. Even if you think other people are weird, try to get along with them.
Don't think of sports as a vicious competition. You lose friends that way.
Don't ignore some potentially good friends just because you think they are not cool, attractive, fun or popular enough. It's a big loss for you, it does not matter what others think about your friends, as long as you guys have fun!

Always Have People to Hang out With

Most people get bored easily! The solution is to have many friends to do things with, so most of the time, you'll be out with friends and not stuck at home bored.

Make different friends. This is the key! If they all have different schedules, then they could hang out with you at separate times!
Do not always appear bored. It can make the person appear as if you don't have a life! Your main goal is to have people you can hang out with whenever, not every second of your life, even if you do have lots of friends!
Chat with people in an unusual setting, such as your uncle's birthday party that appear your age. Making friends wherever you go is important!
Introduce one group of friends to another. That way, it's easier to hang out and maybe they can be good friends, too!

Though, to some teens, it may sound a little dorky, hang out with your family if none of your friends are available!
Don't suffocate them. They have other things to do, so lay off if you feel that they're getting annoyed!

Understand Your Importance in Life

Often times people will feel like no one needs them in this world, like if they just disappeared, no one would even notice. If you think this way, don't, because whether you know it or not, someone loves you.

Think about the effect of your actions on other people. Many people have done selfless deeds, and didn't even notice. But little do they know, the receiver of your kind actions is probably very thankful. Like if you offered your unfinished bagel to someone in a restaurant, and paid no mind to it. They would've been having financial difficulties, and weren't able to afford food the day of their job application. Your kindness would've put them in a good mood, and allowed them to get the job. But if you weren't alive, they probably would've failed to get the job, and would still be in difficult times now. You perform countless kind actions everyday without even knowing, and your actions greatly impact others.

Understand the impact you've made on the world. In your mind, you may be just another face in the crowd. Another pair of hands, another imperfect human. But this is wrong. Your attitude defines everything about you, and all attitudes are contagious. Consider changing attitudes if yours isn't where it should be.
* Have a good attitude. If you simply smile to everyone you see, they are much more likely to have a good day, and so are you. The simple act of smiling makes you happy, and your mood will spread to others.
* Don't spread your bad attitudes. When you're having a bad day, and just can't seem to snap out of your funk, don't let others know. Try your hardest to show others a smile throughout your day. This will make them happier, and after smiling to so many people, you'll probably be happy too. If you frown at everyone you see, your vibe will rub off on them, and they'll all have bad days too.

Know what you are capable of. Understand that if you really try, you can accomplish anything you'd like to do. If you truly believe in something enough, and continually make an effort to stand up for your beliefs, you will make a difference in the world. Almost all famous people you've heard of have made huge differences in the world, most for the better. And many people you haven't heard of have made differences that affect your life to this day. Such as Rosalind Franklin. If it weren't for this unknown woman, we wouldn't know what DNA looks like. If she decided that she didn't make a difference in the world, we still probably wouldn't know.

Make an effort to help others. Try extremely hard to help people for one week. (Even though you really should be doing it all the time.) This means helping old ladies cross the street, carrying groceries to people's cars, and picking up things people have dropped. Once one week has passed, think about what would've happened if you hadn't been alive. That woman may be at the doctor for Arthritis because no one helped her cross the street, and she fell. That man would've dropped his groceries, having no one to help him carry them, and wasn't able to afford more food for his family that week. That kid would've dropped his mother's credit card, and since no one informed him that he'd dropped it, he lost it forever. Be aware of what your actions have done to these people.

Know that you are different from everyone else. Sure, you may be just a human. But don't let that be an excuse. You're unique, and that's what makes you you. Think of yourself as a puzzle piece; a necessity to complete the puzzle, but no one can fill in your place. If you weren't gracing this Earth with your wonderful abilities, that piece of the puzzle would be missing for all eternity, because only you can fill it in.

Consider finding a religion to believe in. This will help you understand your purpose in life.Always make an effort to help those in need.Understand who you are before trying to understand your importance in life.Gain perspective. Volunteer, even if just for an hour or two, at a soup kitchen, free clinic, homeless shelter, etc. Such life experiences are truly a "win-win." Not only do you help other people, you will likely have a greater appreciation for your own circumstances and opportunities.

Respect and explore religions. Humans who believe in a higher power, whether through Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, or just spirituality, share a sense of their own place and importance in the world and a sense of inner peace and strength, no matter how they relate to their God.
Everyone is on this Earth for a reason. You're here, aren't you?

Choose a Suitable Job Position

To find the right job for you, you'll need to figure out what type of person you are, and what your interests are. For many jobs available, you will need the proper training or education. Most employers require at least a High School diploma, and some require a College Degree. However, a lot of jobs do offer on the job training, which would enable you to apply for that particular field. Try to match your personality, interests, knowledge, and age, with a position suitable for you. Don't be afraid to venture out and try new things.

1. Consider a position in the medical, dental or pharmaceutical field if you are friendly and outgoing and educated or trained in this field. Other similar jobs include receptionist, cashier, waitress/waiter, or salesperson.
2. If you desire such a medical professional position but lack the education, be prepared for several years' school and high tuition bills. If you make it through, though, you're pretty much guaranteed a job whenever and wherever you want, with a very pretty paycheck.
3. Check out being a sample model, or cosmetic salesperson if you are friendly and attractive. You never know how far you can go with a great smile.
4. Try out creative professions if you've got that innovative streak. These could include something in the arts, flower arranging, interior decorating, etc. If you are creative and love to cook, a job in the culinary arts could be for you (you could also start your own catering business).
5. Embrace your energetic-side by getting involved as an exercise teacher, personal trainer, or coach. Check-out your local YMCA for options.
6. Seek out a more solitary job position if you are shy or moody. For example, driving a truck, plumbing, roofing, house painting, housekeeping, and so forth. There are many job positions that you can try.
7. Get into a management position if you consider yourself to be a take-charge sort of person. There are a wide range of positions to choose from...search the help wanted ads.
8. Become a teacher or caretaker, if you like being around children or the elderly. Normally, there are always positions available in those particular fields.
9. If you enjoy designing things, you may want to become a draftsman, or go to school to become an engineer. You may want to check some schools out that offer night classes, since most people are busy during the day.

Consider trying a few 'personality type' tests such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Many free online versions can be found on the web.
When applying for a job that involves typing, do not let the fact that you can not type a hundred words a minute scare you off, if that is the case. There are many office jobs that require little typing, and look for accuracy over speed... invoicing doesn't require a lot of speed.
If you are currently unemployed, consider working for a 'Temporary Agency'; you can get paid while trying out new types of jobs and working environments.

Be willing to try different things; plus think seriously about what type of job suits you. Think of others while you are evaluating yourself; don't put having a personality disorder off on others.
When you are seeking a job position that you have never tried, be sure to let your new employer know that you are eager to learn.
If you are good at design work, you may want to seek out a field that you can exercise that... such as putting together catalogues, or doing paste up work. Search around to see what’s out there. You may possibly want to try designing your own greeting cards, sitting at home at your kitchen table... it's been done before.
If you are good at drawing, then maybe try your luck at cartoon drawings and send them off to places like Readers' Digest, or Woman's World Magazine... you never know until you try.
If you are fond of writing, there are endless ways to use that skill. Start with getting a Writers Market. You can go to the library if you choose not to buy one; but keep in mind that the library's books are a few years old.

You can take a very limited education and do wonders with it. On the other hand, you can take the best education that money can buy and do nothing. You can always build on the foundation that is laid, if you have the right spirit.
It takes all types of people doing all sorts of different jobs to maintain the world in which we live. We can all take pride in earning an honest dollar.
If you like dressing-up and looking pretty and have good office skills, by all means, give office work a try. If you like working with numbers, bookkeeping may possibly be perfect for you.
If you're a "hothead," you may want to get into Boxing, or join the Military Service. That should work some of that out of you.

If you should choose to go into house cleaning; it is best to start out by going to work for an established Maid Service to learn the ropes, before venturing out on your own. Naturally, your pay will be less than if you are keeping all the profits. However, the Maid Service will furnish the supplies, instead of you. The pay is good in any case, all you need is the energy.
If you enjoy polishing and caring for your own nails, you may be interested in becoming a Manicurist or "Nail Technician," to fancy the term up. Check out a directory for Beauty Schools by searching the Internet or telephone directory.
You may be a person that enjoys applying makeup, kind of like an art form. If so, being a Makeup Artist may be "right up your alley." Once again, search under Beauty Schools on the Internet for classes. If you enjoy working with skin, search under Cosmetology. You could end up doing makeup for somebody famous, you never can tell, can you?

If you love to dance, it is possible that with a little training, you could become a teacher of dance. You could even end up with your own Dance Studio, who knows? There's money to be made in Arts and Crafts, if you are skilled in that area. A person can sell their items at a Flea Market. Or in regards to selling your items, there are many other avenues to take. You can often place items in consignment and thrift shops. If you are good with computers, you can create your own Internet sales web site.

If you speak very clearly and are easy to understand, you may enjoy Public Speaking. Ref. to step #8; A Draftsman needs special tools, the same as a Painter needs an Easel, or a Model needs a Portfolio. Therefore, a good place to search for great buys on tools is to surf the Internet... and be sure to check-out eBay. Note: This Article was written to represent all our workers, regardless of what job position they may have. They all help to make our lives better. Their hard work is very appreciated.

You do not have to enjoy drinking alcohol to be a bartender. Some bars train on site, and the pay and tips are great for outgoing and friendly people. This is usually a good night job for those who have other responsibilities during the day.

Identify and Choose High Quality Bath Towels

There's nothing quite like a nice, fluffy bath towel right after you get out of the shower. Here's how to find the right one for you.

Shop around. You want to find some towels that are the same color as your bathroom, and you need to consider how large you want them.
Look at them. The fibers should be cut so they stand up like grass in your garden.
Feel them. Are they soft? Or are they rough? If it has a soft, velvety feel and a bit of weight to it, it is good quality. If they are scratchy, or feel like canvas, they are low quality (don't buy those dollar-store towels!).

Consider the content. High quality towels are usually made out of fine, long cotton fiber. Some of the more expensive towels are made from Egyptian or Brazilian cotton. While hard to find, Supima cotton is another excellent choice of long fiber cotton that is grown in the United States.Decide how much you want to pay. If you want the very best quality, it will cost you more. They will also last longer, so you save money in the long run.

Towels that are dried in the dryer are always fluffier than towels dried on an outside clothes-line.Watch for different sized towels - ordinary towel size is fine for the average-sized person but taller or larger people might prefer a bath-sheet. There is nothing quite so luxurious as being wrapped entirely in your fluffy bath-sheet!

Remove Mildew Smell from Towels

The smell of wet beach towels or used bath towels can be sickening. Often, the smell is caused by mildew that is tough to get rid of. Your best bet is to keep towels from becoming moldy in the first place, but if you cannot avoid it, there are easy fixes. Here are some ways to remove that mildew smell and get back to having fun.

Put your towels in the washing machine, using the hottest water available. Add one or two cups of white vinegar. Do not add detergent, fabric softener, or any other products at this time. Run the washer.
Leave the towels in the washer and wash the same load again just as you would normally with laundry soap. Again, use the hottest water available. Don't use fabric softener or any other products.
Dry the load in the dryer using a high heat setting. Towels should be thoroughly dry when you pull them out. If they're not dry, put them back in, or move them immediately outside and hang them in the sunlight.

The Ammonia Method

Put your towels in the washing machine.
Add a normal amount of detergent.
Use the hottest water available. Do not add fabric softener or any other products.
Watch for the rinse cycle and add one cup of sudsy or clear ammonia during the rinse cycle.
Let the washing machine finish.
Move the towels out of the washer immediately. Fully dry the load right away using normal dryer settings, or hanging on the line on a sunny day.

Repeat and Soak if necessary

Smell the towels when you have completed one of the above methods. If the towels are not completely free of musty smell after the first attempt, try soaking overnight.
Fill the washer with the smallest amount of hot water necessary to cover the towels.
Add one cup of ammonia. Agitate for a few minutes and allow to soak overnight.
Add detergent in the morning, and let the wash cycle complete.

An empty towel rack makes for moldy towels
An empty towel rack makes for moldy towels
Avoid getting towels moldy in the first place by hanging your towels to dry right after you have used them. This is especially important with bath towels. Use that towel rack in your bathroom! It is there for a reason.
Alternatively, wash your towels immediately after use. It is especially good to throw your kitchen towels in the wash on a daily basis. Not only does this prevent mildew from getting started, but also helps to keep germs down, so that family members will stay healthy. Frequent washing and drying of kitchen towels will prevent mold and mildew from forming in the damp towel.
If you have a window in the bathroom--leave the blinds or curtains open during the day to get the sunlight in the room. This will keep the towels from getting mildewy while hanging.
Use a laundry detergent with an antimicrobial/bleach additive. This helps fight the mildew smell and can help prevent mildew from forming.
Once they are done in the wash cycle, remove your towels from the machine immediately so that any microorganisms continuing to cling to the fibers of the towels will not fester in the humid and airtight environment of your closed washer, which is a perfect place for molds to grow.

If you live in a place with sunshine and clotheslines, dry your towels in the sunshine. Guaranteed mildew killer.
Before you try any of these, check your washer to see if any of the odor is in the washer itself. If so, run the washer with hot water and 2 cups of bleach (no laundry). This will clean out any smells already in the water that collects at the bottom of the washer in between cycles.
Just washing your towels twice, normal settings, will most likely get rid of even the nastiest odors.
For kitchen towels, a good trick to kill all germs is to rinse briefly, and then put the towel 30 seconds in the microwave.

Do not use bleach and ammonia in the same load, as these combine to form chlorine gas which is poisonous and can be fatal.
When using the ammonia method, do not leave the load in the washing machine long after the cycle is finished. Move to the dryer immediately.

Be Safe on a Dune Buggy

Dune buggies are always great fun to drive. However, the fun can be instantly ruined when someone gets hurt. Dune buggy accidents do happen, so this article will tell how to be safe when driving or riding in one.

Check the weather. Some weather is unsuitable for driving, in particular rainy weather, because wet ground can cause a dune buggy to slip up. Check a weather forecast for the day you plan on driving, and check the sky when you get to your location.
Find a large open area. The safest place to drive a dune buggy is in an are without many obstacles, particularly trees, that you can hit. Extremely dry areas are also a bad choice, because driving in such an area could bring up a lot of dust, and obscure the vision of the driver. If you don't own this land, you should get permission from the person who does before driving on it.

Always wear a helmet!
Always wear a helmet!
Wear safety equipment. A good, strong, well-fitting safety helmet should always be worn, and can be found at most sporting goods stores. If your dune buggy doesn't have a wind shield, wear sunglasses to keep dust or other harmful items, such as stones, from hitting your eyes. Make sure that the buggy's safety harness is on you properly. You should loosen up the harness to get your arms through, and then tighten it to ensure you won't fly away in an accident.
Be careful when driving. Make sure you are always driving at a safe speed. This does not necessarily mean that you cannot drive fast, but make sure your speed is reasonable enough as to keep control of the vehicle. Turning too fast can also be dangerous. When you are about to make a turn, ease up on the gas pedal, and begin to slowly turn the steering wheel in the direction you wish to go.
Turn on the headlights. Needless to say, when it starts to get

dark, your eyes won't be as reliable as during daytime. Turning on the headlights at night is a smart move, in case there are any holes or rocks that you might have been driving around, or for spotting animals that come out during nighttime.
Have a supervisor. Bring along a friend or family member who can help if there is an accident. It would be wise for the supervisor to have a cell phone. The supervisor should stand out of the way of the driver, while the driver should take care when driving in an area near the supervisor. The supervisor should also bring a flashlight if you stay until dark. You can take turns driving so no one is bored.
Make sure your tires are properly inflated.
Bring friends with you. A dune buggy usually has two seats, so if there are three people, they can rotate from driver, to passenger, to supervisor.

Make sure you know how to drive before driving!

Be Color Coordinated

Color coordination is important to many people. Whether it's wearing matching colors for an outfit, or using it for things such as advertisements, everyone seeks it.
Always wear what's in season. When it's winter, try using lighter colors such as light blue and white. When it's spring, try using more intense shades of colors.
Pay attention to what's popular. Make sure what ever is going on is "in style." For example, never use colors like dark yellow and red because nobody uses those colors at this time.
Use personal opinion. For example, check out some magazines. Try to find colors that are "you."
Use colors that remind people of things. For example, light pink, brown, and white seem to remind people of Neapolitan ice cream.
Pick out the right color for the right pattern. For example, if you want to use a checker board pattern, don't use lime green and pink.
Use the color wheel. The phrase "opposites attract," in this case, is true. For example, white and black look great together. Purple and green look good together, too. Using complementary colors also can attract attention to an area or feature.
Choose a signature color or a couple of colors for a particular outfit and use them boldly.
Use the right colors for your skin tone and coloration. Try different colors against your skin and learn which palettes look best on you.
Explore the internet and search for pics of people and a certain color or colors you are unsure of to see what it looks like on them.
Finally, get a second opinion from a friend or family member.

Never use holiday colors like red and green UNLESS it is close to that holiday.
Try to avoid gray colors with bright colors such as yellow.
Try to be careful if you are wearing outdated accessories and catch up!

How to Look Good in the Winter

Pulling off a summer look is simple: a deep tan and skimpy clothes. But when the weather changes for the cold, dressing minimally and sporting a dark tan is impractical and silly. Learn how to look good during the colder months, even when bundled in a shape-hiding sweater!

Care for your skin. In the winter, with harsh winds and heating on full-blast, most skin types will dry out quickly. Drink plenty of water and apply oil-free, easily absorbed light lotions to all parts of your body. Use lipgloss to keep from suffering from chapped lips.
Maintain your hair. Though showering daily is considered good taste, many have found that they should wash their hair using products every other day, or even less! The reasoning behind this is simple: washing your hair strips it of it's natural oils, causing it to dry out and split ends to form - a problem amplified by the winter. Leave in a moisturizing conditioner or hair mask on the last 3 to 5 inches of your hair for about 15 minutes, once a week in order to keep it soft. Also, brush hair from the scalp to the tips, to spread the natural oils. This does nothing but strengthen your hair and give it a silky feel.
Use a different makeup palette. For the face, lighten or forgo foundation completely, and use a rosy, warm pink on your cheeks. Mixing a tiny dusting of bronzer with your blush can be a good maneuver, but either look lovely.
Contrast warm cheeks by using a cooler lip and eye scheme. Consider "going bare" at the eyes - a quick layer of charcoal mascara on your upper lashes, and no eyeliner. This serves to brighten and enlarge your eyes. Cream eye-shadows are also good winter choices: unlike during the summer, they will not "melt off". Colors in the pale blues, whites, and gray-blues are lovely ways to adjust your makeup to the cooler months - daub a bit of white toward the inner corner of your eye, and blend outward with a light blue.
Alternately, jumbo eye-pencils in metallics are another option. Use whites, golds or silvers to achieve a frosty beauty with a tapering line barely above the top lashes. Lightly apply to the bottom of the eyes, then, using the sides of your index fingers, push up until it is a thin line.
Use chapstick. Use chapstick religiously. Apply every ten to twenty minutes, or as needed. Cracked lips are unattractive. Any kind will suffice, in a pinch, even Vaseline!
Dress in layers. To dress for the winter, this will get you surprisingly far! A half-button down shirt, layered over any polo, with a jacket on top, is always a good look - simply match similar collars so that bottom one shows and folds over a bit. Jeans are a winter staple, as are comfortable boots. If you're outdoors in the cold, always have a coat on!
Natural beauty is never beaten. Very rarely does anything top a quick daub of lip-gloss and a freshly washed face.
Look Good! Stock up on stylish winter boots, uggs, sneakers, slippers, sweatpants, jeans, sweatshirts, leg warmers, sweaters, leggings, tights, and hats!

Always check lotions and makeups for any ingredients you may be allergic to. Allergic reactions vary from hives to hemorrhaging: don't risk it!
Dress accordingly for the weather. A button down shirt and light jacket are not suitable attire for a rainstorm or blizzard: get weather forecasts, bring the right gear.

Live a Posh Lifestyle

Living a posh lifestyle doesn't necessarily mean having to be wealthy, although that doesn't hurt. Being posh, however, is a state of being rather than a monetary situation, so you can "live posh" if you so choose. Here is how.
Keep a refined home. Only buy things that add value to your surrounds. Posh people are stylish, not cluttered. Keep things clean, tidy and spacious.
Wear good quality clothing. Rather than buying lots of cheap items, buy several expensive, well-tailored and classic items. Wait for the sales if they are too expensive now, or try consignment stores. But good clothing is a sign of self-respect and an expectation that you like the finer things in life. And that's posh.
Be articulate. This does not mean putting on airs and graces (that is snobby, not posh) but it does mean that you should speak clearly, use English properly (know your grammar) and be well read. You should have at your fingertips a wide range of knowledge so that you can speak with a variety of people and impress them with the things that you know. You do not need depth but you do need breadth, which enables you to be a good people person.
Be an entertainer. Posh people like to show others the good life and how they live themselves. Have dinner parties and other functions at your place to let people see how graciously you live and how well versed you are in dining etiquette.
Know your etiquette. This is very important. Posh people have good manners and know the boundaries in human relations. They know not to tread on toes but equally they know how to upbraid people who do tread on toes. Manners are a form of currency for the posh person and the more you know of them, the better. Start with Emily Post if you haven't a clue yet.
Be careful not to become materialistic. Posh people are not materialistic - that easily becomes garish and common. Rather, posh people seek out quality and style whatever it may be - a handbag, a house, a car. Buy the best that your money can afford and go without the trinkets.
Keep healthy. The same for your body - buy good quality food to nourish yourself. Posh people respect themselves. Exercise regularly - find the right type of exercise for you, don't just join the latest trend. Never over-eat and never over-indulge. Posh people know their limits and respect them; especially since respect in the eyes of others is also very important for a posh person.
Look for posh people you admire. Don't copy them precisely but do allow their way of being, their style and attitudes have some influence on yours. That way, you can build a strong foundation on which to become a posh person in your own right.

Examples of famous posh people: Grace Kelly, Sir Alec Guinness, the Queen of England.

Not a Good Monday To Start With

Monday didn't go well for me. Had a terrible headache last night hoping that it will go away by today. Lucky me, I woke up with smashing headache . Felt like my brain got shake so hard, felt like one of my eye ball is going to pop out. Took some med, it calm down for a little bit, that's when I start working ( blogging, doing laundry the same time ). It's a lot of tension around the house, can't say it specifically but I am just trying to be invisible from everybody. I am tired, my body and my mind feels like it's really worn out. I am barely hanging on. I told my self had to hang in there and keep my self together.

To get myself distract , grab my PM3, put the earphone on, turn the volume up and start working at home like nobody are around me. I guess, life is like that... there is ups and down. But felt like mine is all going down. There are times that I about to give up, but the other side of me saying" hold on, you are going to make it" think about your kids and people that loves you. That's when I start tearing up. Life is full of trials. Sometimes you can bare it, sometimes you can't. I guess I can just hold on til until I can't no more.
