I think everybody has "that one that got away". For me, it's a man named Daniel. We actually did date for a couple years, but in 2008 I was in a car accident/had a stroke. Thankfully we didn't break up when I was still in the hospital. I don't think I would have been able to handle that on top of the tremendous loss of nearly everything else in my life. He was my rock, even if he wasn't actually there most of the time.
We'd go a couple months without seeing each other (my old computer couldn't go on the internet, either) but then we'd start to miss each other. He'd come visit me in the hospital; we'd cuddle and watch t.v. We'd be O.K. for a couple months before we started to miss each other again. This went on for the roughly 14 months I was in the hospital. Then... home!
He had work and college and stuff so he still wasn't there most of the time. That's ok; I think we would've driven eac
Blood MoonNote I know I already wrote something about the moon; this is kind of an extension of that.Blood Moon by GloryAngel
Everyone knows that the moon goes around the Earth- it takes 28 days to complete 1 orbit. It's in a synchronous orbit (meaning it spins as fast as it goes around the earth) which is why we always see the same side. Most of the time the regalith (moon dust) reflects the sunlight and we see it as a white/gray colour. The reason it has phases is because of the Earth's shadow.
Ordinarily the Earth's shadow blocks most of the wavelengths of light, so the moon appears dark (new moon). On rare occasions, it passes through a "keyhole" where the other wavelengths of light are blocked except for red; red has the longest wavelength so it's easier to see over great distances/through dust clouds/etc. On these occasions, the moon appears red.
It's just an optical illusion, but lunar eclipses are steeped in superstition. Most of them have to do with death/destruction (probably because of the moon'
A Kids' Guide to BullyingI was bullied a lot as a kid and this is just what I have noticed over time. Note I grew up/went to school in the suburbs so I have NO idea what inner city schools are like. Also the internet wasn't very big yet when I was a kid so I don't really know much about cyber-bullying.A Kids' Guide to Bullying by GloryAngel
1. Don't let it get to you.
I know that's easier said than done, but if they don't think it's getting to you, they do eventually stop. Besides, if it isn't true, it shouldn't matter. If it is true, you should probably re-evaluate your priorities.
2. Going to the teacher isn't always the best idea.
Sounds like a good idea; unfortunately, while it might be a good idea in the short-term, it might end up screwing you in the long-term. This one's kinda tricky because it can be hard to judge when you SHOULD tell a teacher/parent. If it's actually endangering your life then by all means tell them, but if it's just petty teasing just brush it off.
3. If it isn't true, it shouldn't b
What the Hell is Feminism?What the Hell is Feminism?What the Hell is Feminism? by lidsworth
Is it “Woman Power”?
Is it “Man-Hate”?
I thought it was about equality, but it seems pretty stupid to me now. If anything, it's a one-sided war, a war waged on a gender that does not deserve out hate in the least. What one man does to one woman does not speak for the man sitting next to you, Ms. Feminist.
He's a man, yes. But that's all, a man who just like you can be hurt, can be shamed, can be raped, can be humiliated_I thought that's what feminism was about, pointing out how alike the two genders are. I thought it was about equality.
But how wrong I was.
If I don't hate men, than apparently, I’m no feminist. If I believe men can be abused_If I believe that they suffer more then some women do, due to societies “strong” view of men, than I guess I’m no fem inst. If I support equal rights and equal right only, than I’m no feminist either.
But you know what, I’d rather be my own person then belo
