more romantic shit in fiction that pisses me offThere's always been this one cliche in fiction that's been incessantly nagging at me. I take it most of you are already incredibly familiar with high school and campus settings in fiction equipped with the jock, nerd, unobtainable beautiful cheerleader stereotypes and whatnot that's been prevalent in a shit ton of films since forever. So you're probably familiar with the old story of the nerdy/awkward/uncool guy that gets picked on constantly or doesn't fit in who's like obsessed with the hot cheerleader who's going out with the big, mean nasty ol' jock.more romantic shit in fiction that pisses me off3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But something I've noticed is how in a number of these stories the popular handsome jock guy is like the school's BIGGEST douchebag and everyone that doesn't worship him is either deathly scared of him or they at least -know- he's this massive reaming assfuck that shouldn't be messed with or else he'll ruin their lives or some shit so they stay the fuck out of his way.
And the jock's hot beautiful girlfriend will always seem like she's

9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa

Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)What do you guys think of Cesar Millan or 'The Dog Whisperer'?Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Been watching some videos and been having some debates about his methods of training (which to me, being someone how has and does train dogs, are not as bad as people think).
The controversy that he hits/punches dogs or even uses tooth collars and shock collars is just stupid to me as well. He never comes on the show saying 'we're going to use this shock collar to control your dog', if anything he tries to discourage the use of these things for control of bad behaviors, showing owners they can gain control and stop bad behavior easily, without painful tools.
The fact remains that if a dog is aggressive and ready to hurt another dog or a human NOTHING will stop it, not a shock collar, not a choke chain, not a spike/tooth collar, or even a gate/fence. So the 'tools' used mean nothing, it's about presence, making the dog realize you are not a threat but you are also not a pushover.
His methods do work when done properly and wi

After the course of drugs I had to take for a tummy infection, I had to wait about six weeks which is typical for this type of infection to work it's way out of your body...I then saw the specialist, and had to do another test to see if it's completely gone. I'm still waiting for that test result, it does take a while! As for my liver function, the latest blood tests still revealed it isn't as well as they want it to be...so they will continue to monitor it, and perhaps for some years to come, just to keep an eye on it I did go for a gallbladder ultrasound, to see if I had gallstones and I do unfortunately...but they are not causing any problems so far, so that is a wait and see kind of thing

In my last journal I highlighted my favorite human model sources for photomanipulation. In this journal entry I would like to honor the wonderful individuals that provide stock for background and scenery in the pictures I create. These pictures offer scope, create framing and compliment wonderful foreground images. These images help to create mood and tone for various pieces, providing settings for the visual stories we create through our pictures.

So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.

He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up.
