I don't like to shake hands
when I casually meet new people, especially when they’re around my age. It just feels too formal, as if I’m about to be interviewed for a job. I prefer a friendly wave with a warm bubbly smile and a small introduction; that’s always more welcoming for me! (:

rahchelle: Sit in front. You do not have to raise your hand, but generally try to sit in the first few rows during lectures. You’re less likely to ditch mid-lecture this way, you can hear the person speaking, and if you have questions you will get them answered. Sit. In. Front. “Turn to Page 394.” Read the textbook. Skimming through just to answer specific homework questions will get you a B-...
One opportunity opens the door to the next
Nextdoor is an agency that works to fight and prevent domestic abuse and teen dating violence. I joined them last summer as their youth leader and throughout those three months, I was paid to be educated and trained. That program taught me so much about myself and it was what drove me to want to major in psychology. At the beginning of this summer, they asked me to come back for a youth program...

Just follow the directions AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN like a ninja. It’s difficult, trust me.
Cleaning my room, doing my homework, staying at the library, reading a book for fun, helping my mum, researching, working out, taking a walk, etc…. pretty much anything that doesn’t involve endless hours of watching T.V. or going on social networking sites - I’ve learned to actually like doing these things, despite how much I try to put them off. It’s just the thought of...
Ghost in dream
Yesterday, I had a dream that my family and I went out to camp in a secluded forest. My parents knew the place quite well and they taught me all of the routes nearby. While they were setting up the tent, they asked me to gather some woods to cook food. Alone, I took my car out and drove around. After a while, I lost my directions sped down a dirty hill. Since the path was too narrow, I...

Long distance relationships?
No, not for me. It’d hard enough for me to go a week without talking to my significant other, let alone going months without any physical contact or intimacy. I may also encounter loss of patience, boredom, trust issues, temptations, and the fear that my s/o may be having the same thoughts. I’ve learned that a hug from the behind, a kiss on the forehead, or even a warm smile will give...
"The Car and the Garage" PG13
There is two kids playing in a sandbox. One was a boy, and the other kid was a girl. The boy pulled down his pants and the girl asked “What’s that?” The boy said “I don’t know, I’ll ask my dad.” When the boy got home, he pulled down his pants and asked his dad “What’s this?” His dad said “That’s your car; you always want to...
I used to punish myself to punish my parents
Whenever I felt that they were unreasonable, whenever I was angry, bitter, or resentful towards them, I would punish myself. I’d lock myself in my room, I’d cry until my eyes were sore, or I’d starve myself until they would apologize and make compromises. It was an effective tool for me because I know that my parents love me and in hurting myself, I’m hurting them even...
First Day of College
Nothing exciting since it’s just the first day of class, but so far, I like my classes and teachersprofessors! Bio seems like a straightforward course; as long as I stay on focused and organized, I think I’ll do well. As for American Civil Studies, it was like a combination of my high school U.S. history, sociology, and English 4A class. I really like Prof. G; she seems to genuinely...
Test Your Senses
http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/body/interactives/senseschallenge/senses.swf I thought it was pretty fun! I scored 10/20. How did you do? [:
Steve wakes up one morning with a terrible hangover and absolutely no idea where he was or what he was doing the night before. He sits up in bed and looks around the bedroom. Everything is really clean and organized, and there are flowers on the dresser, along with a note. Stumbling out of bed, he opens the note from his wife, which reads: I tidied up around the house this morning and got...
Good Son In Prison
An old man lived alone in Ireland. He wanted to dig his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison for bank robbery. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament. Shortly, he received this reply, ”For HEAVEN’S SAKE Dad, don’t dig up that garden, that’s where I buried the money!” At...
I've always wondered what poop tastes like
I was a very curious child (still am, actually), but I’ve never gotten myself to try it. Now, it’s too gross to even think about sometimes, but I still wonder…
Check Your Child's Homework Beforehand!
A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment. After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note: Dear Ms. Davis, I want to be very clear on my child’s illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we...
Mum: *Points* Every time your gas tank hits that mark, you have to refill it again. You should stop by the gas station later.
Me: *Thinks: "Darn it, I'm gonna have to pay."*
Me: Mum, you and dad can't finally hand the car over to me and have the gas be 3/4 empty T^T That's not right!
Mum: What, who says?
Me: That's like giving me a toy that requires 4 batteries but you only give me one. It's against the rules!!
Mum: Finee, drop me off at the bank later.

I don’t know you but you’ve know of me. You’ve probably visited every social networking site that I have, so I think Tumblr is the best way to reach you. I hope you’ll get a chance to come by this post and read it. Are you the same person that did this over Myspace years ago? Are you the same person that did this on Formspring? Are you the same person that did this on...

bigmouthbigideas: “Well, people should be more responsible. If someone doesn’t want a child, they just shouldn’t have sex.” Oh really? Who are you to tell people what responsibility means? Just as everyone on this planet is different, so are the concepts of responsibility. To one person, responsibility means waiting until marriage to have sex. To another, being responsible means remembering...
When someone tickles me
On the outside: On the inside:
"My last meal"
If I were to have one last meal before I die, it would definitely be MAMA Ramen with lots of beansprouts, 1 scrambled egg, and 5 little boiled quail eggs in my favorite rounded bowl. *Drools* What’s yours? :D
[Picture from Google image] YUMM, my favorite! Such nice creamy texture and they’re GREEN too! I’ve been drinking them lots in the past few weeks. Such a shame that it’s ~50cents for a small avocado T^T I think I’ll try to grow an avocado tree when I’m older and drink avocado smoothies for life! YESSSS <3 (:
"Think Outside The Box"
You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it’s raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for a bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that there could...
I used to be embarrassed about my boobs
because well, they were a part of puberty and everything about puberty was taboo when you’re going through it. I remember the first time I approached my mum with the “bra talk.” I was too shy to ask her to teach me how to use it. Initially, I thought you just put it on like a shirt, but that got me tangled up for half an hour in the restroom. I hated bras at the time; I hated...
