I miss him.

I miss him so much. God, do I miss him. It’s worse now that I’m here in New York. He’s so close and yet further than he ever was when we were dating. I miss him desperately. Please, leave me a few words of strength and encouragement to get through tomorrow without succumbing.

Big Beautiful Women

Find the big beautiful woman of your dreams at Often shortened to simply “BBW,” big beautiful women have a lot more going for them than you may at first realise. American culture is supersaturated with the “I must be skinny to be loved” body type that women who actually enjoy their curvy figures are often shunned and degraded for being “fat”… which they’re not. It’s about time someone thought of bbw dating.

I have a lot of trouble with this kind of reaction to Latifah’s body type (scroll down past the first photo for commentary). It’s terrible to assume that–because Latifah was “caught” wearing a bathing suit (on her vacation, for Christ-sakes)–she shouldn’t be “allowed” to enjoy her personal time or that she should need “to get a license” to wear something that conforms to her shape. God, it just makes me sick when people judge others by their physical size of all things. There are a LOT more appropriate things by which to judge someone… weight and body shape should not be one of those.

Okay, sorry, enough ranting for now. In any case, if you’re looking for someone who does NOT judge you for your body shape, check out these bbw personals.

I’m back, baby!

As you can see, I missed out on ALL of June and (nearly) all of July… which is pretty sad, considering that I was/am a mere FOUR posts away from 300 (x5) reasons why I should be happy today. Many are repeats, but I think that’s okay ’cause it lets me know what I really care about… like NOT ending sentences in prepositions. Gah. I hate that. But, nay nay… Back to things that make me HAPPY, not hateful. Yay for happy.

Organization rocks!

I think I will always love organizing. Organizing scrapbooks, my messy-as-heck bedroom, my little brother’s overloaded backpack… and so on. I think, when organizing “The Home” (that is, your home), storage cabinets are important for keeping the things you want hidden (or, at least, out of the way when you’re not using them) separate from the things that you’re using at the moment. offers a myriad of ways for you to organize your garage (and you don’t have to be a guy to buy from them!) in an effort to make the space another room in your house, not just a room attached to the house.

Learning is e-learning is learning, I say

Learning is important. When my grandparents’ parents were growing up, a high school education–if that–was all that was necessary to get along well in life. When my grandparents were growing up, having a high school diploma was more important than it had been for their parents. when my parents were growing up, a college education was a way to get ahead in the rat race. Now, while I’ve been growing up, it’s become increasingly difficult to find a decent job (I’m searching right now, as a matter of fact!) without at least a bachelor’s degree, if not more. Some companies don’t even bother looking at resumes without a masters and/or doctoral degree prominently placed in the “Education” section.

Knowing all that, what can you do if you can’t afford to just quit your current job to go back to school? What if there aren’t any good schools (or any schools, for that matter) near you? In that case, try e-learning with Capella University.
