You Are Moody, Sensitive and Unpredictable.

I love astrology. I enjoy not having to worry about what’s going to happen tomorrow, and look forward to the eerie feeling when it’s all too familiar.

I recently came across a site that breaks down your astrological report down to the day you were born. Yes, this isn’t a major discovery.

I found my description to, well, give me goosebumps.

Discover yourself (click there).

Pisces

Personality : You are moody,sensitive and unpredictable.You love beauty and day-dreaming.You also make good poets.You are sympathetic and flexible by nature but sometimes,you can carry this to the extent of showing disregard for moral values.You tend to cross-check,and perceive things intuitively.Being kind-hearted,you find it difficult to refuse people as you have a genuine concern for them.Of course,smiles Ganesha,you will make good doctors and nurses.You may be disappointed in matters of the heart and hit the bottle consequently.With a strange outlook on financial matters,you share what you possess and expect others to do likewise.Your drawbacks are that you are secretive,indecisive,impractical and an escapist.

You shoulder maximum responsibility, that too willingly, says Ganesha. Hard-working, detail-oriented and focused, you see any task to its very end. Clutter and inconsistency irritate you. Practical, honest, trustworthy, intelligent and logical, your actions often speak louder than words. You are also drawn to the mystical realities of the world. Your clarity of thought and action, coupled with your quest for knowledge, take you quite far into the realms of the occult. Well, says Ganesha, you have the power to deal with it all, as well.
Positive Qualities : Liberal and sensitive, gentle and caring, progressive and kind, persuasive, nature-loving and imaginative, humane.
Negative Qualities : Uncertain, vague, easygoing, sometimes careless, difficult to understand, impractical, occasionally lacking in balance.

Chinese Sign: Monkey

Your quest, notes Ganesha,is to gather knowledge.To top it,you are blessed with a good memory,and remember things about the subject you delve into.Hungry for knowledge and good at grasping it too,you can talk eloquently at length.You love to create a buzz in your surroundings.Challenges turn you on and you do not give up till you win.Monkeys make loyal,devoted friends and dedicated professionals.You need to watch your eating habits as you may not eat well at meal time,and then snack enthusiastically in between.This will seriously affect your digestive system.Compassionate and kind,you have a friendly approach towards others.You are an excellent entertainer and love to be the soul of a party.

It Began With A Deep Tan, And One Two Many Of Whatever It Was That I Was Drinking.

“I got a Dear John letter.”

This wasn’t exactly how I was thinking my night would end.

It began with a deep tan, and one two many of whatever it was that I was drinking.

The breeze was right, and it seemed like everything around me had stopped. All was right in my world–for a small infinitesimal moment at least. Suddenly, well, almost annoyingly, a 6’3” (my specialty is guessing height), rugged, older gentleman came to join me at the bar.

I had met him the night before and he insisted on meeting up again. To someone who isn’t in the position of getting involved with anyone right now, this annoyed me, but I obliged.

We exchanged a few stories.

He wanted to know my life story, but I thought it was best to keep most, if not all of it from him.

Without warning, the conversation changed.

He began to delve into his past as a solider. The tall, rugged man had performed three tours in Iraq, and was now retired military. I was humbled.

Again, without warning, “I got a Dear John letter.”

Now, I’ve read the book, and refused to see the movie because why would anyone do that to themselves twice.

I didn’t think this happened in real life.

He had been wounded in combat and called his fiance to tell her of the incident and ask how the wedding planning was going, to which she disclosed:

“There isn’t going to be a wedding.”

I saw the pain in his words. I felt his aura. He was burned, and burned badly.

I could do nothing but stare blankly. In these instances, an “I’m so sorry” is nothing more than another swift slap in the face.

He then pulled out his phone to show me a photograph.

It was the last photograph he had with her; it was their engagement photo. He shared that it was the last piece of her that was left in his life.

Together we deleted it.

It wasn’t just a photograph, he wasn’t letting go.

The photograph, CD, takeout menu, dried flowers, and old notes aren’t going to bring someone back, they’re just going to prolong your healing.

As the lights came on, and the crowd began to die down, I hopped off of my stool, kissed him on the cheek and told him that I was doing him a favor by walking away.

Someday he’s going to make another girl very happy, but for now he can hopefully leave the Dear John letter behind.

If I ever meet the girl, I’ll curse the day she was born.

 

 

 

Natural Face Mask, Part One.

Skin care is my hobby.

Tonight, I decided to try an all natural face mask– being that the unnatural ones aren’t working.

My first mask was Honey and Cinnamon.

As you will see, it’s not exactly glamours, but feels good.

STEP ONE:

2 Tablespoons of honey: Honey helps heal infections and aids in prevention. It’s also great for locking in moisture.

STEP TWO:

Mix 1 teaspoon of cinnamon with the honey until a paste forms:Cinnamon drys out the skin and brings blood to the surface, which aids in healing.

STEP THREE:

Apply a thin layer to the skin, and let sit for 20 mins. Note: This is extremely messy, so make sure you’re laying down on a towel. It’s also delish.

STEP FOUR :

Rinse with warm water and towel. You’ll feel that the mask doubles as a scrub.

My skin looked refreshed, but I’ll let you know if any major problems arise.

Enjoy!

I’m Determined To Have One Adult Aspect Of My Life

One of the many steps of beginning life unfortunately, or fortunately, includes moving home.

I don’t mind being home. I would love to reap the benefits of the four years spent slaving away at work and school, to finally have a career and a well paying job– but apparently it doesn’t always happen this way.

My post-grad room, which I am grateful for, is nestled into an old office. It’s even complete with rows of shelves (which I’m not even going to attempt to remove).

While living with our parents isn’t exactly ideal, I am looking forward to redecorating.

I’ve spent the last four years in a shoebox of an apt, in which I commonly refer to my room as a walk-in closet. In fact, my shoes don’t even fit into my closet (hence the name).

I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock, though. What is my decor style? I know I HATE modern, like the look of elegance and have a love for shabby chic, but where exactly does this leave my room? I mean, that wouldn’t look good all in one space, right?

I’ve begun a long-winded Pinterest journey, and was hoping maybe I could get some help in narrowing it down.

Things that are a must:

1. Fluffy Cover And Lots Of Pillows:

4. Something To Do With The Shelves

It’s going to be a work in progress, but I’m determined to finally have at least one adult aspect of my life.
