“Backbone” as a metaphor has always evoked determination, strength of character, toughness of spirit.
It is also an indicator of alignment, of being on the right track, of having everything in life in functioning order. “Breaking” one’s back means utter devastation, paralysis, losing everything. Being “spineless” is perhaps the worst insult any man would care to ever hear about himself. And then there’s the

Whether it’s the sole survivor of a plane crash, stranded on a fly–speck Pacific island or the forlorn deserted lover standing alone in the early morning fog at mid–span of Waterloo Bridge, there is nothing sadder, and nothing more defining of the human spirit, than the tossing into the sea of the “message in a bottle.” The idea, more than the actual execution, of this desperate measure, has come to symbolize an eternal act of human faith — that somehow Divine Providence will guide this message through the shifting seven seas to be found on a beach by the one who needs

CONTEST TIME!Alright so just about everyone has had a cartoon or cartoon figure that has impacted their life since childhood right? For me it was Pokemon and Inuyasha. Well, I want to see what inspired and moved you as a young child. I want to see what emotions it brought out in you and whether or not they helped you through hard times. So, the theme to my contest is...CONTEST TIME! in Personal More Like This
The cartoon/cartoons that helped you through childhood.
(There will be TWO versions of entry: Image and Written)
What I'm looking for...
~Color! Lots of emotion-expressing color! (or lack of color if the meaning and emotion behind it requires blacks and grays)
~Emotion! I want to be able to feel what you felt by looking into your image
~Expressive words! Lots of them! Use your words as though they are paint on canvas.
~Emotions and description! Use descriptive words to put the reader in your place and really feel what you felt.

What Makes your OC tick?((I'm going to do this meme with real life people lol, see if their "psychological build" makes sense XD))What Makes your OC tick? in Personal More Like This
This here little written meme-journal entry-thing is not going to ask you what your character looks like. It is not going to ask what your character's favorite color is. It's not even going to ask what your character would do if cupcakes fell from the sky. This, my friends, is going to put you to the test--just how developed is your character. Does his/hers/its psychological build make sense and fit together? If your character isn't that developed, then I hope this helps.
a) Use as many characters as you please.
b) If you're a big freak about staying in character, I'd recommend that YOU answer. Not your character/s because, let's face it, not all characters would spill their beans.
c) You don't have to tag anyone, but it's highly expected.
d) Don't worry too much about grammar--this is development. Not an English test.

1.) Show respect to your elders regardless of how annoying they are. (They get a lot more annoying when they feel disrespected.)
2.) Eat right. If you eat wrong you end up with spaghetti sauce up your nose. (Everything smells like an Italian restaurant for a week.)
1.) Don't try to swallow half of a taco whole, no matter how hungry you are. (Unless you're part snake. Then go for it.)
2.) Don't play Robot Unicorn Attack 2 for an hour straight, no matter how bored you are. (You start having dreams about being/riding a unicorn and being attacked by stone giants. Then you wake up screaming when you use your last jump and fall into an abyss.)
Well that's all of my advice for now. I may make this a weekly thing.

LuckFor the past few weeks, every morning as I walk down to the bus stop, I always study every patch of clovers looking for a mutated one with four leaves instead of three. Because, at some point in time, some person found a dysfunctional, oddball clover with four leaves and declared it lucky. He, along with certain others, probably thought hey, maybe different is lucky. And thus inspired the lucky four leaf clovers growing in the Someplace where I'll never be able to find them and six-toed cats running amuck at Somewhere, Florida.

You go east and go east and go east some more. Taking boats, trains, planes, cars to get as far east as you can. And you're almost there, but then - then you stop in your tracks and realize you've made a huge mistake. You're going west now. You've reached the point where east turns to west and west turns to east. That unmarked spot where everything flips around without warning. You are lost, turned around, confused, but you keep heading west - for now, when everything has the ability to change, there is no point in directions.
You'll always end up where you need to.

when you grow up and have kids or cats or goats or some sort of life to take care of (even if it's a rock), make sure to tell them unsettling things such as their room smells like the dead or their eyes look lost, abandoned at sea. because it will make them wonder and it will make them think, both two very painful but necessary actions we must perform in order to be a successful human living.

Once upon a time, there is a girl at my school whom most dislike. They say she's mean, a jerk, and walks like a duck.
This girl, well, she's on my tennis team. When I first found this out, I was worried. What if she was mean to me? But then I realized that wouldn't happen if she liked me. So I'm nice to her. I am her secret pal, meaning I get gifts for her every away game (winning people over Harvest Moon style).
And as it turns out, this girl isn't so bad after all. Maybe I'm a naive, ignorant, unaware of the crocodile I'm sitting on to think this, but who cares? This girl, she's dedicated to the team and really cares enough to include everyone. So what if she can be unintentionally cruel? We're not all made of sugar and fairy wings.
So please. Before you judge someone, try being nice to them. I don't believe in walking a mile in their shoes, because I dislike exercise and besides, what would be the poi

About a reality game show.
A deadly reality game show.
Of late there have been various books published and movies made about reality game shows going too far past the standard social norms (the most popular example being The Hunger Games), but even then we can't stop watching. Big Brother, Survivor, The Bachelor all interest us in a way soap operas never will be able to. Because we love the idea of this being real, and not staged like it most likely is. We get attached to characters, root for some, rant about others. Reality TV is a sport to us, a recreation activity and subject most everyone can relate to on some level. We love it, we hate it, and it's in our blood, rushing through our veins as we speak.
Why this relates to Doctor Who goes back to unacceptable reality TV shows - like the Hunger Games. However, as much as we'd like to say we would be outraged if a reality show was made about people killing each other, w

Though maybe I'm idealizing a bit too much here.
But there are a lot of exchange students - about a quarter, maybe a third of the students are not from Here, and boy are they a motley crew. We have kids from everywhere, from Germany to Ghana. It's incredible and I wouldn't have it any other way - I like new culture. Though the one thing that gets me, though, is the sort of cliques the international students sort of form. People say that usually it's the Chinese students that all stick together, usually because there's a good amount of them, but this year it's these three Spanish boys (two from Mexico and one from Spain) who've formed a sort of gang. They divide most of their time between flirting and messing around.
Plus there's the art factor of this ex-art school. I'm pretty sure they have yet to figure out my drawing skills are pretty limited to stick figures
The Master StorytellerWhen I was in the 3rd grade (a lot happened that year), this elderly woman would come every other Wednesday to my class. She was cute and wrinkly and smelled of raisin cookies and old. Her voice was soothing, sounding exactly like you might imagine a grandma to sound. Her name was Ruth.The Master Storyteller in Personal More Like This
And on these every other Wednesdays, Ruth would tell stories about Little Rue. Little Rue is, to this day, one of my favorite characters of my childhood. Of course, most of the rest of the world does not know about her, because Little Rue is in fact Ruth at a young age.
Therefore, was like all children - curious, innocent, imaginative. She lived in a town called the 1940s, and was always getting into trouble. Her adventures were like movies in my mind, and I eagerly awaited each next installment. It was my first taste of verbal storytelling - events made up or recalled on the spot, without any text or help from a teacher.
Truth be told, I was enthralled. I found it amazing that Ruth was able to create a
