Dear daughter, let Miley Cyrus be a lesson to you.
Yes, this is what happens when you constantly hear everything you do is awesome. This is what happens when people fawn over your every Tweet and Instagram photo. This is what happens when no responsible adult has ever said the word “no,” made you change your clothes before leaving the house, or never spanked your butt for deliberate defiance.
If you ever even consider doing something like that, I promise you that I will run up and twerk so you will see how ridiculous twerking looks. I will duct tape your mouth shut so your tongue doesn’t hang out like an overheated hound dog. I will smack any male whom you decide to smash against his pelvis – after I first knock you on your butt for forgetting how a lady acts in public.
That’s me and my best friend, Nicole. We’ve been friends since high school. I was a transferee from an all-girls private high school, while she was a loyal student of my new school since kinder 1. The first time we met was the first time I had to commute going home because my school bus broke down. She was bus-mates with one of the first people I made friends with in school, Camille. Camille decided to go home with me, since I’m new to the whole commuting thing. Nicole, Camille and I were on the same jeep. Camille introduced me to Nicole, and the three of us chatted and laughed the whole trip going home. My mom decided that I stop riding the school bus because I’m already in high school, and the whole riding with Nicole and Camille became an everyday thing.
My friendship with Camille is another story, and I’m here to talk about my best friend Nicole. Nicole and I are very different. Our life stories are very different from each other. Our interests and perspective in life are also very different. Even our attitudes are different. This is why I’m always asked by people why am I best friends with her. I have so many reasons to give why she’s my best friend, but I’d love to share to you guys 20 reasons.
1. You’re cool with doing the heavy lifting – as long as it’s manageable. What? Wait for the guys to come help out? Girl, we went through 10 years of school without a single guy in sight (unless you count that wimpy math teacher), and we did just fine.
2. You have that one group of girlfriends that you know will be there for you. FOREVER.
3. “Friendship problems” don’t throw you anymore. We’ve been through 4 years in a school full of girls going through puberty all at the same time. It was hell. There would always be at least one person in any classroom PMSing at any one time – plus we pretty much hung out with the same group of girls so much that our cycles literally synched up. Yes, it’s not a myth; it’s true. Which basically means WAR every few weeks. I repeat. It was hell.
Yoga is known for its physical, mental, and spiritual practices which originated from India. Its goal is to attain inner peace, cleansing out of anything that stress the mind, body and soul.
I was a Yogi—a practitioner of Yoga—back when I was a kid. It was a part of my organizations in school for 4 years until the school had to take it down because the instructor had to leave the country. Anybeans, recently I’ve been doing Yoga again because my doctor recommended it for me because I’m anemic.
I’ve been practicing Yoga again for 2 weeks now, and I can really feel that it has changed me for the better. I feel like I’ve improved physically, mentally and spiritually. I’m here to share to you guys the reasons why Yoga is good for us, and what I’m going to share are all based on experience.
Aren’t we all guilty of sleeping with at least one person in our lives where the sex was just kind of meh? Everything went in the way it was supposed to and all of that but you were just kind of bored the whole time? You can fake an orgasm, sure, but you can’t really fake chemistry, can you? The difference between having sex with somebody because sex is a thing to do, yay, and having sex with somebody you have powerful chemistry with is what makes the deed so awesome. It could be that you really love the person, or maybe you are both ridiculously attracted to one another. Chemistry is key.
2. Compliment Them!
Everybody likes to feel good about their bodies. And what better time to dole out some awesome compliments than right during the act! I mean you don’t have to…
In my LIT103 class, we were asked to advice Mr. Mallard—a character from the short story A Story of An Hour by Kate Chopin—about how to keep a happy relationship. I ended up listing things a guy should do to keep his woman happy. I made my professor read it and she said it was like reading a magazine post. Nonetheless, I’d love to share to you guys what I wrote for my LIT103 class 🙂
Last July 15, 2013 (Monday), I attended a leaders’ congress where prestigious speakers talked about how to be an effective and successful leader. Our guest speakers were law students and CPAs. They really delivered their talk very well—the content and the delivery was excellent—like how a good leader should. But I’m not here to talk about the Leaders’ Congress, I’m here to talk about the things I learned from that conference: HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE LEADER.
Some of the strongest romantic connections are spontaneous, start fast and move very quickly to falling in love. However, when you’re falling in love, you’re likely not worrying about the important issues that when they come up later can be a recipe for disaster. I’ve always gone back and forth with questions that you should ask and when you should ask them. Most of the questions that I’m going to list here in this post aren’t first-date questions; it’s probably way too invasive. When I’m talking to someone about their relationship, I’m always certain to figure out if they know the answers to these questions. I think there are just certain things that you guys should know about each other.
1. What are you like when you get upset?
Every couple should spend time figuring out what happens when their significant other is upset. What are those things that upset…
