It seems like all parents to to give their children a better childhood and life than the one they had.
I was blessed with a very happy childhood, and I am trying to give my children close to the same one I have. However, there were things in my own childhood I wish my parents had done or hadn’t done (see above picture).
Here is a list of what I learned not to do from my parents:
1.… Keep Reading!!!
I actually have a pretty bad confession, and I want to share it because I never thought about how I might be contributing to something immoral.
We live in a building that is super close. Our floor leaves doors open and we treat it like an open community. After the TIME cover came out we were welcomed back to a supportive and protective group of people.
We also share our technology.
We all share the same internet, have synced iPods, … Keep Reading!!!
Did you know? $1 can give clean water to one person for over a decade.
Why is water life-altering?
My confession for the week:
I’ve ignored hunger in our country.
I’ve been so caught up in the famine ravaging east Africa, and all other areas of the world where people desperately need food.
It doesn’t mean we should ignore those places that need help now, but we can’t overlook the fact that there are children in our home country going hungry.
The Food Network is airing a documentary about child hunger in America.
Hunger Hits Home airs April 14 … Keep Reading!!!
I am obsessed with The Hunger Games
I was at the book store today and I saw it on a stand that said “teen fiction.” Not my favorite literary term. I cringed when I saw the label because I am currently reading the series.
Confession: I hate politics. Sort of…
Okay, in itself that isn’t a worthwhile confession, but my political views are.
It came to my attention the other day that I quite possibly am a closet anarchist.
Why I hate politics:
I love people. Period.
My personal goal in life is striving to understand why people believe what they do. In situations when I do this correctly, if there was any judgement to begin with, it will be gone when I reach … Keep Reading!!!
I don’t like dogs.
Heart of stone, you ask? Possibly.
I’m a cat person.
Here are a few of problems I have with the little mongrels:
When I was little, I scanned a picture of my sister and pretended I was her in chat rooms.
In my defense, I was only 12 and it was my brother’s idea.
We had this picture of my sister when she was 21 in a bikini. It cracked us up. I wish I had it with me, I would show you all.
My sister was (and still is) hot stuff- it was fun for my awkward 12-year-old self to get … Keep Reading!!!
“I don’t like it when things I like become popular.“
That’s weird, right? I guess that is why it is my confession.
Hear me out.
Example 1: I liked Ugg boots way before they became popular.
I don’t have a problem with other people liking the same things as me.
My issue that is once it becomes popular it will have its moment and eventually become unfashionable.
Uggs held true to that. They had their fleeting trendy moment and … Keep Reading!!!
I have a pair of underwear from the 7th grade. I still wear them regularly. They are half camouflage, half red, with multiple holes, and all the elastic is stretched out so I need to role them. On top of that, Brian complains that I not only have them in my possession, but wear them regularly.
I just can’t seem to get rid of the darn things…I’ve even packed them for the trip I’m currently on.… Keep Reading!!!
