CharismaI just read this and I think it is so true:Charisma3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 10 habits of remarkably charismatic people:
1. They listen way more than they talk.
Ask questions. Maintain eye contact. Smile. Frown. Nod. Respond--not so much verbally, but nonverbally.
That's all it takes to show the other person they're important.
Then when you do speak, don't offer advice unless you're asked. Listening shows you care a lot more than offering advice, because when you offer advice in most cases you make the conversation about you, not them.
Don't believe me? Who is "Here's what I would do..." about: you or the other person?
Only speak when you have something important to say--and always define important as what matters to the other person, not to you.
2. They don't practice selective hearing.
Some people--I guarantee you know people like this--are incapable of hearing anything said by the people they feel are somehow beneath them.
Sure, you speak to them, but that particular falling tree doesn't make a sound i
FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

An Unrelated AnnouncementWhile unrelated to Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, it is significant and I think I will share it with you all so that you all have access to it!An Unrelated Announcement2 years ago in Personal More Like This
North America's GAMESTOP will be distributing special shiny Pokemon for those of you with Pokemon Black 2 and/or Pokemon White 2!
August 19th - September 8th will give you a SHINY DIALGA.
September 9th - September 29th will give you a SHINY PALKIA.
September 30th - October 20th will give you a SHINY GIRATINA.
That is all that is currently known (source from Serebii), but as soon as things like hold items, level, and moves are made known, I will edit this journal here.
I guess I've started a precedent of announcing Pokemon events here. But I feel they are just as relevant as new Pokemon X and Pokemon Y features because I know for sure I wouldn't want to miss out on an entire shiny LEGENDARY MASCOT TRIO. Would you?
For now, this is only North America. But if other countries hold this event, I will also update this journal here.

* Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky.
* The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever.
* Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought.
* The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks.
* As a junior high school pupil in Pyongyang, he corrected and chasti

The X-Men made their comic book debut in 1963 as a group of mutants who were born with superhuman powers and were feared and hated by society for being different from humans.
The inspiration for The X-Men came from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and was originally titled The Mutants. Marvel asked editor Stan Lee to change the title because they thought no one would know what the wor

A Fantasy Equine Role Playing GameHorses of AramoreA Fantasy Equine Role Playing Game8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Aramore never use to be like it is today. They had a ruling king who was kind and looked after his people and it's nation. He cared about them and showed it very very well… but when his triplet sons came of age to rule, things started to get bad….
We start our story back when his sons were born. The kings wife birthed a miracle, having identical triplets. Times were happy then and hardly anyone got sick or died young. The 3 boys would grow into adulthood and change all that though. The King and his wife taught the boys how to care and how to lead their herds… and they all took it in at strides. For the most part, they were all good kids. The foal who came first, was best at it and the kindest of the 3. The second was more neutral about things and preferred not to do anything to help the kingdom out. The 3rd brother was very very angry at times
