Now Browsing: I Need a Change

How we are supposed to decide whether our life is going smooth or not? life is all about new experiences,expectation how to decide when we need a break from our monotonous life? well at one point of our life we do feel that if " I would have done that than things would have been different".......
In our lives we all have come across this fact "why we didn't do what we wanted to do"... Well the reason can be many but for most of us we keep on thinking rather than doing........

“Welcome to yet another light-speed, non-stop food shop. Please give us your hard- earned, well-deserved commodity cash and we’ll give you this overly-processed, undercooked mystery meat. Bon appetit!” This is all I hear at every drive-thru, at all the restaurants. Gone is the age of quality it seems; now the rise of mass produced food is upon us and the fall of the culinary arts is nigh!
Forgive me, I sound like Yoda on caffeine high. It may sound crazy, but all of these sweet dea

For me, food has been connected to emotion and deep meaning. I’ve always put a lot of emphasis on what I eat, if I deserve it, how much of it I have, and if its tastes satisfy my emotional needs.

To say that I "stumbled" upon Korean Dramas is underestimating the power of Gods will and the forces of the universe.

People often use the phrase "meant to be" so lightly that its appreciation is lost.

How about the book you received as a gift that you thought was just a hand-me-down formality from someone?

"Words can break someone into a million pieces, but it can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you'll regret more than the words left unsaid, are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone."

The quote above is a funny thing. It is so simple, yet true at the same time. Words can break someone into a million pieces and it is so hard to get back together to how you used to be. You try to be strong through the words that were said

I always had a loveless life and it was fine too, as I sailed through life doing the bare minimum. That was of course until we were transferred to a remote town in the country. I took it pretty well.These were petty scars and wounds that I could lick by myself.Then came the bulling with no visible scars but internally it was tearing me apart.We had CC cameras in school recording it too but it was all useless because nobody really cares about hurt people until the wounds are fatal or the victims

" The wheel in the sky keeps turnin" by Journey blaired through the speakers of my mother's totalled Chevy Blazer; the engine revving at maximum RPMs as consciousness slowly crept back into my mind. I panicked, quickly leaping through the passenger window from my position in the driver's seat. my thoughts raced as i realized the gravity of my situation; my stress compounded by the lacerations on my left forearm and the psychological side-affects of havinng been up for three days without food o

while i was thinking about scar; i was confused which scar i am gonna write about, the physical one or the one which is deep inside in my heart. i chose the latter one.
