I thought that this wad such an awesome post that I had to rebblog it! Thanks to Girls Heart Books! To my sisters, Kia and Drina, I LOVE YOU!

Me and my sisI have a sister. That’s her on the left, wearing the babygro. We look like the best of friends here, don’t we? Well, just fast-forward through the album about seven or eight years – after we’ve been sharing a room for a while – and you’d find a whole different set of facial expressions. I’d be pouting (probably), wishing the floor would open up and she’d disappear into the hole, while my sis would definitely be frowning, no doubt contemplating new methods of medieval sister torture. If you have a sister you’ll know exactly what I mean. It’s hard to admit this but, when we were growing up, I would happily have slipped rat poison into her Sugar Puffs!

It was worse in our teens when all those awkward hormones wereGoth 'sisters' fizzing through our bodies. We’d have horrible screaming rows, say awful things and do lots of…

Dreams of Graduation!


You have dreams of graduation and it is finally here. Congratulations are definitely in order. However, in 2012, what happens when you graduate and your dreams become shattered because the job market is at an all time low for your profession. Seriously, you have worked for 4 to 8 years only to find yourself working in retail, fast foods, or some other market that is irrelevant to your field. This is a travesty. Who do you blame? What do you do with all that education? How do you pay back all of those loans? Is it an epidemic? Is it a crisis? Is it our reality? When will it all end?

I urge you to research the job market before you go back to school and work on those Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate degrees. Although you may not want to admit it, it is about the money! So, show me the money!!! You do not want to dedicate yourself to a field that is not going to allow you to gain any financial merit! Yes, you need to enjoy what you do! However, at the end of the day, if you are not making enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle, then the enjoyment will soon fade away.

So, with that being said, here are my suggestions for those of you ready to pursue your education in a graduate program:

1. Research the job market for your field of study (Will you have to relocate to find a job in your field? What is
the salary range?).
2. Look for in-state universities to work on your degree (it will save $$$$$).
3. Begin to network early (make those job connections prior to graduation).
4. Build your resume/curriculum vita (professional organizations, social organizations, honor societies, community
service etc.)
5. Know your worth!

I hope that this information was helpful to someone.

Home Alone


image

Have you ever felt like you were so alone…sort of like it feels when no one else is home.  You are in a place that only you seem to understand, you ask for clarity, but you still don’t understand.  Fate has a real ugly way of playing things out.  You have to replay those images over and over again until you eliminate all your doubts. 

You trust that people will be there to hold your hand or at least give you some words of encouragement to help comfort you within, but the words they say must have missed coming your way because you still feel like you are home alone.

Although you think you hear knocks at the door, you are afraid to open it because there could be more…more pain.  You feel the pain of your loss. But for others, your loss is nothing but your loss. It is your loneliness. It is your pain.  It is your heart that is like an empty home.  Fate has a funny way of dealing those cards.  So funny, you have to laugh, but it is not funny.  So, you cry until you hear the front door open…then you are no longer home alone and your loss is now his loss too.

A Buzzard’s Dream

A Buzzards Dream

There it sits, waits, and wonders until the very thing that people thrive, life, is gone.  When that happens, its dreams become reality.  It can now feast on the remains of the very thing that once had lived.  Although, as grim as it may seem, a buzzard’s dream is as necessary to our existence as it is to the life and death that bonds us in reality.

Mirror Image


Have you ever looked in the mirror and been ashamed of what you saw or have you ever looked in the the mirror and saw little to no flaws?

The mirror is a true reflection of who you are now, tomorrow, and for the days to come. To change your reflection, you have to change your perception of who you are…you truly are the man in the mirror.

Your mirror image can only reflect back your image.  This means that no matter how much you want to be, look-like, or act like the next man or woman, your reflection will always be YOU! So, be the best you YOU can be.

If you are confused…look in the mirror and repeat after me:

Mirror mirror on the wall… my reflection is the most beautiful of all. Help people to see me as you see me…beautiful inside and out spiritually. Help them to always see a smile. Help them to see through my perception and see a person that is nothing more than the mirror image of a flawless reflection.
