1. Ten rules for being human: one, you will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period. Two, you will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called ‘life.’ Three, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The ‘failed’ experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately ‘work.’ Four, lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson. Five, learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned. Six, ‘there’ is no better a place than ‘here.’ When your ‘there’ has become a ‘here,’ you will simply obtain another ‘there’ that will again look better than ‘here.’ Seven, other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself. Eight, what you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours. Nine, your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. Ten, you will forget all this.

  2. Touchy Tumblr Challenge- Day 4, 5, 6, 7, and 17

    Day 4 – What is your view on gay marriage?

    I hate the term “gay marriage”, it implies that it is, in fact, different from straight marriage. I think it should be allowed and I think that civil unions suck (though are better than nothing).

    Day 5 – Do you think sex before marriage is okay?

    Yes, but I don’t think you should have sex to get it over with or to be cool or because you’re horny/curious. I think you should really truly care for the person you’re with, I think you should be at least 16 (preferably older) and mature enough to handle it. I also think you should be prepared for all the possible consequences (pregnancy, STDs, UTIs, parents finding out, etc). Also, I see nothing wrong with waiting (I just didn’t happen to).


    Day 6 – What are your views on love? Do you think it’s real? Do you think we only experience one love per lifetime? Does everyone have a soul mate?

    I think love is real. I believe that there is more than one person out there for you and that you have a chance to be in love a couple of times in your life. I also think that it takes a lot of work to maintain, that it doesn’t exist forever unless you keep it alive.

    Day 7 – Do you want to get married and/or have kids?

    Someday I want to get married. I love kids and want only two.

    Day 17 – Have you experienced your ‘first true love’ yet? Do you believe you ever will?

    Yes I have and it’s my current girlfriend.

    help to address, help to move past it and onto a much healthier way of coping. I’m not sure what else to say here, mostly because I don’t really know what people have been saying about cutting.
