How to get over an EX

Instagram stalking, endless amount of shots and sleeping around with randoms will only make you feel worse….trust me it won’t be easy but it will definitely be worth it in the end.

You gotta stop worrying about his next move and focus more on yours. Think about it this way….clearly shit wasn’t going smooth so you have to let that ship sail and move on. Hit the gym regularly, work out the frustration and release those endorphins. You’ll feel amazing with the amount of confidence you endured as time progresses. Eat healthy, you want to look good when your at your next appearance and he’ll be there, watching your every move.

Stop drinking excessively, all it’s going to do is have you make some awful decisions. You don’t need to get blackout every night with your girl friends and forget what happened as soon as you wake up the next morning. Of course a glass of wine is completely fine but that club scene is a bad look.

Don’t feel sorry for yourself! Its not you, its him. Get rid of all things that remind you of this person immediately! You want a fresh start? Delete the phone number, unfollow all social media accounts that involve him and throw away all the crap he got you. Unless it’s designer items, don’t ever let go of those.

Think of yourself now, it’s all about you! What do you think you need to improve on? Take the time and really think about what you can do to better yourself. Birds of a feather flock together, the people you choose to surround yourself with are the people your defined to be. Figure out whose positive in your life and keep them around. But the others, you need to let go.

As you get older, you mature and create a unique master piece you call yourself. Everyone is different and that’s the beauty of it. Start a hobby, keep busy! You don’t want to keep thinking about the person who broke your heart. Things will slowly get back into place as soon as your ready. TIME will only tell because you can’t rush perfection.


How to get flawless skin

I’ve suffered from acne as soon as I hit my 20’s. NO, it was not fun. It was unfortunately very upsetting. I didn’t feel beautiful, I was depressed, and I had zero confidence in myself. As I began to educate myself by reading posts dermatologists had written on their websites, it began to make much more sense with how I should be controlling my breakouts. I’ve also learned what you consume such as food and what your currently thirst for is also a huge factor. WATER should be the No. 1 beverage you should be drinking daily. Soda, alcohol, energy drinks, are the WORST for your skin. You should be consuming almost a whole gallon of water a day. It doesn’t just control your acne but leaves your skin looking young and hydrated.

Wash your face daily, morning and night. Exfoliating is the best medicine. You want to clean your face from all dirt and oils that are deep down into your pores. Make sure you are using an salicylic acid or a benzoyl peroxide wash as well. You want to always moisturizer your skin as well as put on sunscreen because UV rays will give your wrinkles and dark spots! If you do decided to wear makeup, use an oil-free foundation  that won’t clog your pores if you do decided to wear it.

Make sure your also eating well balanced meals, no fried foods. Lots of vegetables and fruit is perfect. Too much dairy will ignite your acne, and it’s no fun.

Best tips and tricks to save as a college student

You don’t to be a math major to know college expenses add up. Most students our age often feel worried and stressed with money being the lead cause.

Best advice it to pounce on financial aid. High school graduates left as much as $2.7 billion in free grant money on the table by not completing the FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, during the 2014-2015 application cycle. Use your opportunity to claim federal student aid by filling out the FAFSA before each new school year. If you’re eligible to receive funds, you won’t have to reach as deep into your own pockets.

Instead of shelling out big money for brand new textbooks, you can save significantly by borrowing them or buying them secondhand. Visit your library, ask a friend or seek out other students willing to lend books and supplies through campus community groups on sites like Facebook or Craigslist.

When shopping for groceries, school supplies, household goods or clothing, employ these money saving tactics: Set a budget, make a list, search for coupons and compare prices to avoid overspending. Another strategy is to buy in bulk, then split the items. Remember using coupons isn’t cheap it’s GENIUS.

Be smart with your money, save as much as you can! And you necessarily don’t need that brand new Louis Vuitton bag you’ve been dying to have. You can easily shop for used items online which will drastically drop the price almost in half!


Tampa police hire fraudster sign language interpreter at Press conference

A fraudster baffled hearing-impaired viewers by delivering gibberish sign language gestures as police announced a break through in the Tampa serial killer case last Wednesday. As police chief Brian Dugan announced the arrest of Howell Donaldson. interpreter Derlyn Roberts was there beside him, making signs that made absolute no sense at all.

“She sat up there and waved her arms like she was signing Jingle Bells.” said Rachell Settambrino, who is deaf and teaches American Sign Language at the University of South Florida.

State records show that 53-year-old Roberts, who also goes by name Derlyn Glover, served a five-year prison sentence for felony fraud and was released in April last year. She also had prior convictions of grand theft and burglary.

Tampa Police Department spokeswoman Janelle Mcgregor told the Tampa Bay Times that officials are conducting a review because they didn’t even request to hire an interpreter for the news conference.

Florida says ASL interpreters have to be ‘qualified’, Settambrino said.

But what is that definition of qualified? Especially since this isn’t the first time an incident like this happened before…..

Iraqi Forces Retake One Of ISIS’ Last Towns In Iraq

Started as an al Qaeda splinter group in 1999, before re-branding as ISIS in 2006. The group known for killing and torturing hundreds of innocent people is one of the most dangerous militant group in the world. Seizing chucks of Syria and Iraq, ISIS aims to create a caliphate in the Middle East and beyond. Demanding that Muslims across the world swear allegiance to its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and migrate to territory under its control. In 2014, ISIS controlled more than 34,000 square miles in Syria and Iraq, from the Mediterranean coast to south of Baghdad. At the end of 2016, ISIS territory had shrunk to 23,320 square miles. The Islamic State extremist group, which at its peak in 2014 held about a third of Iraq, including large cities such as Mosul, Tikrit and Fallujah, is now scattered and severely diminished. With the loss of Rawah, the militants no longer can claim to hold territory in Iraq and are quickly ceding ground in Syria, as well. Still, Iraqi officials warn the Islamic State poses a threat as it turns to more traditional terrorist tactics. Since losing its de facto capital of Mosul in July, the group has been able to stage deadly suicide bombings, and its gunmen have struck civilians throughout Iraq.

The tone is conversational and explanatory. I really appreciate how simple the explore page and how easy it is to navigate though the search engine. Newsy is application to inform and does one excellent job in that department.

Hyperlocal Web Sites

Hyperlocal new sites let people zoom in on what is happening closest to them, often without involving traditional journalists. They might let a visitor know about an arrest a block away, the sale of a home down the street and reviews of nearby restaurants. But the one problem is when your focusing on smaller neighborhoods, your audience begins to get smaller as well. Hyperlocal websites become handy when searching for the new hot new bar that opened down the block but not so great when the company isn’t making that much money, only to have limited success selling ads. In the last several years, neighborhood blogs have sprouted across the country, providing the sites with free, ready made content they can link to. And new tools, like advanced search techniques and cellphones with GPS capability that will help the sites figure out which articles to show to which readers in which neighborhoods. These websites also take advantage of sound and animation in which strengthen the content for the reader, rather than print. To be completely honest, I enjoy reading hyperlocal websites because I can read at the convenience on my phone than hold a bundle of newspaper. Wherever and whenever, i can look up any city criteria night or day.

About a week ago I heard the devastating news of my best friends sister dying of a drug overdose. Unfortunately opioid abuse is becoming a huge epidemic in not just our country but in the world. Painkiller addiction often serves as a gateway to heroin use and has led to skyrocketing levels of addiction and deaths from the illegal and highly-addictive drug.

First, there were “pill mills” in Florida meant there were easy access to narcotics. Strip malls and street corners laden with “pain clinics” attracted a constant flow of “patients” consuming narcotics. When these sources closed, these people sought the next readily available substance…heroin.

Second, the government challenged the pharmaceutical industry to change the content matrix of oxycodone to prevent it from being easily crushed and turned into a powder that can be snorted or injected to get high. As a result, people who were used to crushing, cooking or injecting starting using heroin.

Third, when a physician cuts off people who are legitimately taking prescription pain medicine for pain or recovering from an injury, they realize they’ve become dependent and go to heroin to fill the void. When access to the drug of choice is taken away, the addict becomes “dope sick,” a condition in which they feel so ill that they have to keep using to feel better. To many, the high that heroin provides is the cure. It‘s cheaper, readily available and its effects are relatively predictable.

Service Journalism

For my service journalism project, my topic of interest will be “The Blood Type Diet”. For some who question what that is, it is an diet in which the individual depends on the person’s ABO blood type. Each blood type represents genetic traits of our ancestors, including which diet they evolved to thrive on. Now in my 20’s, I see a drastic change in my body weight, metabolism, skin and health. Not regarding to be at risk, but to be more aware of what I am consuming for my health in the future. For example, my sister has been on the “Blood Type” diet for almost 9 years now and I most certainly agree, at the age of 35 she looks younger than myself. Her skin is completely flawless, her body wight is absolutely perfect for her size as well as her health is in perfect condition. But keep in mind she regularly makes her way to the gym in which I’ve been absent about…. 

There are four different diets depending on their blood type A. B. AB and O. And each one refers to obtaining different foods that benefit more than the other. 

This is how each blood type is supposed to consume:

    • Type A: Called the agrarian, or cultivator. People who are type A should eat a diet rich in plants, and completely free of “toxic” red meat. This closely resembles a vegetarian diet.
    • Type B: Called the nomad. These people can eat plants and most meats (except chicken and pork), and can also eat some dairy. However, they should avoid wheat, corn, lentils, tomatoes and a few other foods.
    • Type AB: Called the enigma. Described as a mix between types A and B. Foods to eat include seafood, tofu, dairy, beans and grains. They should avoid kidney beans, corn, beef and chicken.
    • Type O: Called the hunter. This is a high-protein diet based largely on meat, fish, poultry, certain fruits and vegetables, but limited in grains, legumes and dairy. It closely resembles the paleo diet.

The way I describe it is my body is like a machine, my body of course depends on water, oxygen, and food. But my body needs its energy from all those for it to fully work. Blood runs throughout my body but I must consume all the right ingredients for my body to properly function. If my blood type is O doesn’t it make sense for me to consume the food that benefits my blood type? I’ve been very hesitant to use this diet, but I feel in my early twenty’s its better now than never.

Not many people are interested to visit a psychic and receive a reading. I was granted information I would love to express and talk with you all about my experience with a psychic I recently interviewed. Of course you’re able to be against such a crazy idea, I’m not here to change anyone’s religious views but it’s definitely a topic I myself been curious about. For many years I’ve desired to have my fortune told but hadn’t seen the time to do so. Hopefully this can open your eyes to more irrational ideas for yourself to do. Why not give it a chance?
