Long story short, my aunt is accusing my brother and his wife of stealing her son's jewelry (he's 14 and my bro is 24, captain in army) sooooo she's been harassing my mom, talking smack about them (we know they didn't do it, why the **** would he steal ****? what motive? he's a grown ass man with a career, or his wife...14 year old's jewelry!? ***** please) anyway, sooooo my aunt is still harassing my mom, calling her a cheap *****, and all these horrible names, and now she's calling us monkeys, (racist) n*ggers, etc. Like seriously? it's comical, I just thought I would share.

I have to take issue with this. Stuff like bullying and kids gossiping, slam books and the like have existed for decades. It only seems like the problem is getting worse because cable TV and the Internet have a 24 hour news cycle and sensational things like the Chardon shooting are spread through these channels in a matter of minutes. 30 or 40 years ago, it's unlikely you would have heard about that shooting outside of Ohio. Also, in a number of states, it's ridiculously easy to get a gun. I don't have a "good old days" mentality, because I don't believe the "good old days" were always so great. It's human nature to think the past was better when we're dealing with rapid change and challenges.

So yeah, there is no amount of " oh things like this happened all the time when we were little" to convince me that these kids are not becoming more aggressive, entitled, violent, and downright disrespectful. I've worked in some sort of capacity with children for over 15 years and I can say unequivocally that children are INDEED different from what most generations were 15 years ago.

It's not that bullying or violence didn't happen during those times, but more of the fact that it was not the norm like it is now. Yes, the media plays a role in broadcasting these situations, but um, do you really think that there would have been a mass shooting like that in the 70's or 80's in the first place? Easy access to guns or not, the world has become a vastly different place. Back in those days, a kid could bully you to some extent in the school or neighborhood, perhaps. Now, a bully can find you on FB or twitter and taunt you. Make a page dedicated to calling you a slut. Send you 40 texts messages a day calling you a ***got. It's relentless.That is why I don't question or judge how a teenager can commit suicide. Because the bullying may seem like it's never going to end. The message for those teens needs to be that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Not that they are selfish or don't understand how worse life can be, because in their mind, life is as bad as it gets.

I got some reprieve and got a chance to get my **** together to face it the next day. I also had parents, church folks, and friends that reinforced that I was a great person and not what the bullies tried to make me feel. For kids that are bullied now, that mess is 24/7. I could not imagine what they are going through, how it must make them feel, and how it must reek havioc on thier self-esteem.

I know even back then there were days where I skipped school just to get away from it or stayed home. I was depressed and frustrated and I know I used to think about hurting the folks that bullied me...and my bullying wasn't 24/7 nor was it the worst of what I know other folks experienced back in the day. I think had I been subjected to this bullying these kids are getting now a days....Columbine wouldn't have had ish on my meltdown.

As far as violence-yes, due to the easy access to guns and whatnot, school shootings are unfortunately, not uncommon. However, that's not to say that violence never happened in "the good old days" either. Just the methods were different. When I was in high school (in the 80's), a kid got knifed outside school grounds. And when I was in junior high, we had a substitute homeroom teacher one day and while her back was turned, a classmate set an unpopular classmate's head on fire. Literally. The fire was put out quickly and the unpopular girl never said anything, so the perpetrator never got caught. If that happened today, it's likely that the perp would have been thrown out of school altogether.

Just had another thought about school violence and the Internet. Many kids aren't born inherently evil. They're taught to be that way. If we think that kids today are more violent, than we adults are to blame and should be held responsible for glorifying it and pushing it on them 24/7. We can't expect kids to start behaving in a more respectful and peaceful manner until we adults start acting that way ourselves.

When I think of how relentless an adult can be via social media when trying to berate or defame someone, I can only imagine what children with no sense of how this will affect someone TRULY would behave. I wouldn't trade being a picked on teen in my teen years for being a teen now for any reason.

The tormenting is endless for some of these children and there's no downtime, no safe place. The extreme torture they endure often times warrants an extreme response and that's what we get (postal or suicidal).

Is Argan oil really all that? Ive been using some on my face for months and umm err I havent noticed a thing

Ive used it in conditioners , oils and stylers... still nothing to call home about

Why is it being touted as the end all?
Argan oil made my face break out into hives. I've avoided it like the plague ever since. It seems to be in a lot of sh*t now, but I have plenty of good sh*t that it's not a problem for me. It annoys me that it's popular.

I'm really tired of my mom making excuses as to why she won't start a healthy journey. I'm so tired of the excuses. I gave her a book that helped me get things going for myself. She said she'll start the diet on the 1st of March. She said she wanted to be able to count the days evenly (*side eye*), she wants to finish reading the book, and that she wants to finish eating the food and coffee she bought (even though she wastes food all the fcuking time). At first I was nagging her about it because I was like "what's the wait for? March is in 4 days. This is about getting healthy". But then I thought that wanting to finish the book was a good enough reason to wait. So I was like okay.

Fast forward two weeks, she hasn't started the diet. I'm trying really hard to not be mad at her right now but I can't help it. It angers me mainly because my mom is all the family, besides my sister, that I really have. So her being here and being healthy is very important to me. But she just doesn't care. And I'm so angry about it. I know she's probably stressing out about work or something, but it is still excuses. I told her she'll feel better if she just eats better at the very least. My mom barely eats and doesn't have a good sleeping schedule. When she does eat, she eats stuff that she knows is bad for her. I went home two weeks ago and one day for dinner she ate popcorn. All she ate was popcorn! She has high blood pressure, high cholesterol and osteoporosis. She's on medication that's not helping. She's unhealthily overweight because she doesn't eat good and is very sedentary.

Her health stresses me out. I remember not too long ago I've had to rush her to the hospital and it was the scariest moments of my life. Having to rush your own mother to the hospital. And knowing that everything that she's struggling with can be reversed if she just eat better and move is just so frustrating.

*I know I probably sound really mean in this post but I just really care about my mom. Just venting*
