I am enough for you. You'll never see it though. I am willing to give you all my love and now you look elsewhere for it!!



You'll never have a family and no woman in her right mind would agree to your circumstances and become your wife. Your "spiritual" thoughts are not better than my Christian beliefs!!

We should've gotten to know each other better, but that's now how it played out.

I may dress like a hippie and look like one, but I will ALWAYS keep my values in my pocket.

Good luck finding anyone that will love you for whom you really are. I loved you for who I thought you were, not what you really are.

And I actually found some friends that want to go bowling with me, ha!

Experimenting, as usual. I've found that these products work well:

Low-poo: Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat shampoo and KC Come Clean shampoo
Cowash: CJ Daily Fix
LI: KCKT (rarely used as a LI)
Stylers: CJ CiaB, KCSS, and homemade flax seed gel (FSG is a total HG btw!!)

Lying in bed this morning trying to get rid of a headache and all I could hear was someone out in the street retching/vomiting. Ugh. Even the dog started growling, it was so loud and went on for so long. Not nice.

Big egos and their consequences piss me off!!! Especially when you do it over and over again and hurt everybody around you!!!! Will you EVER learn? Once is fine, twice is on purpose and 3rd time is totally absurd and crazy!!! STOP IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I tell the stylist my hair gets weighed down VERY easily and her response? Putting FOUR products in my hair. I looked like a wet dog when she finished -__- thanks for listening

Good grief. I was reading about the changes in school grading due to Common Core/NCLB and the push in America (and areas in Canada) to remove letter grades and %. Some are saying it's to remove confusion (90%-100% = A leaves a huge unknown, but they are obviously forgetting the A-. I do agree variations in % from school to school is not helpful and should be standardized, as it once was before people started screwing with it), reach A COMMON GRADING SCALE at all schools in ... area, and is supposed to help give more accurate "real time feedback" on the child's progress. BUT. It seems people are all implementing different grading scales with in this method as well. Some schools using the numbers 1-4, with 4 being the highest grade. Some want to use check marks. Others going with words like "emerging". Kind of like my K-3 days when we got S for satisfactory, G for good, N for needs improvement but with a ton of extra padding to make sure no one hurts their behind if they fall. Which leads me to my next point. There is also the large continuing push for this due to the never dying self esteem movement. Bad grades cause kids to commit suicide, so they must be removed. After seeing this so many times, I decided to look a little further. First stop was A simple question asked... Should schools eliminate letter grades? It's easy to tell most of the responses for elimination are from children...

"Yes they should be Why do we need grades? It causes a wall that pressures that student to do more and create eventual depression in some people. It is also the result to suicides in life. I say we get rid of the grades and just have a report made by a teacher in words."

"Kids in general If kids are struggling and trying their hardest but still getting f,s then they shouldn't be based on f's, rather than trying their hardest that's what should count and f's shouldnt have a percentage for example 33.43 percent is an f but so is 55.73 percent that's still an f. That right there shows improvement by a perventage. If they keep the letters it should just be A thru D that way all kids still pass but they feel better about their selves if they come home with straight C's then the kid would show that he is doing great and he is average. The parents would be happy to and if both the kid and parents are happy then before you know it the kids may be getting B's or even A's instead of keeping keeps behind and failing and then throwing them into dt for failing or getting dcfs involved for failing grades,loosing kids over failing grades or locking up parents and taking kids away and throwing them into foster care. Each child should get a chance to pass when they are trying their hardest."

What?!?!? Who is putting you in foster care for failing math and giving you the idiotic impression that grades are the main reason for suicide?

Some from those for keeping letter grades (mainly adults but some children as well)

"Number grading is confusing In my school we have a number grading system with 4, 3, 2 and 1's. Fours are 98% to 100% and A's are 90% to 100%. My parents think that A's are the same as 4's but there is a big difference. A 4 is much harder to get than an A."

"Letter Grades, being more accurate, will tell students where they are better. I see nothing wrong with giving percents as a system since there as accurate as letter grades (plus you can do math with your score to tell what percent you got). But the problem is the school counties. They change to NUMBERS, not the percentage. A 4 is 85% - 100% at my school while an A+ was 96% - 100% back with letter grades."

So, there goes the common grading scale theory...

That led me to this Swedish Study from 2010, with data from the 1970's and 80's, about people who failed in school (when they used a 5 point numerical grade scale in high school. 4.0, 2.25, etc...) being more likely to kill themselves between the ages of 25 and 34. :-/ According to them, they removed anyone who had known or reported mental and drug problems from the study. No matter how hard they try, this never account for numerous unknowns.

Most of the stories I found on recent suicides where grades were mentioned were from other countries. Some that use scales more similar to what our schools want to move to. The ones I did find from the US were very misleading. "Girl kills herself over grades", when in reality girl was suffering from depression, was very hard on herself, had no helpful coping skills, and who knows what else may have occurred to push her over the edge.

^ One of the more recent

I do realize that schools have drastically changed since I walked their halls. I grew up with standard letter grades (other than the earliest years), and often my % was included by the letter. It really wasn't that much of an "unknown", did not keep me up at night, and even if it was... There are unknowns in life. If schools want to change... So be it, but not for reason like "My child will kill his/her self over an F". That is neglecting the real source of the problem, and only adding to a lack of coping skills. I know teen suicide rates have tripled since the 60's (along with an increase in population), but I do not know one person who killed themselves in school, or late due to grades from school. The issue was much deeper.

Interesting topic to read on, none the less.

^ Most the teen "suicides" in my area over the last so many years have actually been accidental deaths caused by Autoerotic Asphyxiation. Medical examiners list it, along with a few other accidental death causes, as suicide.

ETA & PS... With all this talk over the past 15 years of "the new and improved" methods in school being better for students self esteem and better preparing them for "the real world", but most data saying completely the opposite, I keep wondering when they will wake up. Teachers will be the first to tell you more kids slip through the cracks more often (which is saying something) and come into their classroom unable to do basic tasks they should have learned. Many stats show several employers have not felt like more recent employees were prepared at all. Not only that, but they don't always have the time in a work setting to provide constant ("real time") feedback and praise. That is so highly valued in schools, and it is not a reality in the work force. Increased problems in school since the programs were implemented, etc... Look around. Just look around. *One last thing... Really wish people would stop telling others w/o children that it is none of their business. We have families. We have friends with kids in school. We have friends who teach, and we are dealing with the graduates coming into the work force. It absolutely matters to non parents, especially when you are expected to practice attachment parenting on the young adults coming into the office.

No kitty kitties!! They are already begging to be fed again. They just age breakfast a little over 2 hours ago.

I guess it's almost time to get busy. Finished my morning news reading, I am watching show, and then I need to finish cleaning. I got most of it done last night so I could have a home spa (you ba**ard iPhone) day this evening.

"Daily Greens" by Bolthouse is completely horrid.

Also, I rescued and returned a nice Boxer dog named Roscoe this afternoon. Such a nice boy, and it made me feel better about breaking my vow for Lent.

I love Boxers.

Why is there no such thing as a simple GOOD thing ever in my life lately? For any tiny good thing that happens something bad immediately makes up for it.

I can't believe people still praise "god". If he does exist, he's a sadist *******.

I'm just so tired.

It's supposed to be 75 and sunny Monday-Thursday! That makes sense. It poured rain all weekend, I woke up to a dusting of snow this morning, we had a rough and cold wind all day, and the nice weather returns when I go back to work.
I'll still take it.

I do hope they catch these people soon...

They owned a $1.2 million, 83-foot yacht that was docked in South Florida. They lived in waterfront homes in Minnesota and in Lighthouse Point, Fla., and had $3 million tucked away in various bank accounts.

He was the successful, wealthy executive of a Miami-based broadcasting business; she, the owner of a company that bred pedigree Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, including one that won an award at the Westminster dog show.

And all the while, for about a decade, the Chisholms collected food stamps, Medicaid and welfare. First they got it from the state of Minnesota, then Florida, then — for about a year — both, simultaneously.

A "Lord & Lady" from Florida and Minnesota. Ok then

I really do like the woman they hired to work (sort of) HR. she doesn't handle general gripes. Mainly new hires, etc. I actually met her a few years before she got the job. She's 3 years younger than me, friends with my cousin, and we have been to several of the same parties. Extremely nice, but I do wish she would stop with the smiley faces on requests she sends our office. We are the only ones allowed to do several necessary parts of her job and she always adds...

I understand this make take some time. I appreciate you

Haha. Sweet words but we're always going... Rah, rah, effing smiley doesn't belong here. Because we had to get up at 5am and we're beotchy.

(Maybe we should instate a no smiley faces before 2pm rule. Nah, no smiley faces on anything we have to hold for record and audits)
