— Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye

“And he did touch her, firmly but gently, just as she had dreamed. But minus the gloom of setting suns and lonely river banks. She was secure and grateful; he was kind and lively. She had not known there was so much laughter in the world.”

Stress and Exams

Students who manage best in exams:

  • Maintain positive relationships with family and friends
  • Continue to allow some time for exercise and leisure
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Eat sensibly
  • Have planned time for study
  • Are organised
  • Learn and practice simple techniques for relaxation (see the school counsellor for ideas)

Warning signs that stress may be exceeding a helpful level include:

  • Irritability
  • Tiredness
  • Poor concentration
  • Poor short term memory
  • Recurring worrying thoughts
  • Lack of tolerance for others (you may not detect that in yourself)
  • Anxious about little things
  • Listlessness
  • Prone to bursts of anger and tears
  • Indications of feeling ‘down’, alone or misunderstood
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Indigestion, poor appetite.

No one sign necessarily is cause for worry and these signs need to be considered in the context of your life. However, it is better to seek help than to struggle with worries by yourself. Signs of depression or anxiety in particular should not be ignored.

no but seriously it’s very important to a child’s development to not be shut down by parents and other caregive

  • “Eat” the damn Play-doh cookies.
  • Slurp the invisible soup.
  • Pretend that they’re not causing grievous bodily harm as they “brush” your hair.
  • Always be serious when asked what you’d like for dinner, and never say something silly like rabbit soup. Because they will go get their stuffed one off the bed, put it in your best pot, and fill said pot with water. Then place it on your desk.
  • Greet their make believe friends and ask how their day was.
  • Always kiss the teddy bear goodnight. It has feelings too.
  • Always pretend to die when they shoot you.
  • If you are having a fake war with them and you shoot them and they say they can’t die because they are invincible, you don’tshoot them again, because they are invincible.
  • Yes, their drawing does look like a butterfly, not a bunch of jumbled up lines.
  • Them pounding on the piano is the best thing you have ever heard.

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”

“I’ve been blessed with a beautiful mind but what a dangerous place it has become
It holds me captive by obsessing but it’s a masterpiece to some
I could never live a life of simplicity, I over think my every move
It forces me to toward perfection as if I have something to prove
It diminishes my craving for much needed seclusion
It turns my realistic thoughts into parallel illusions
It overpowers my intuition and forces me to make mistakes
It makes me take chances, putting any and everything at stake
It demands I share my thoughts, I can’t keep anything I feel in
It gives me the best justifications as I partake in sin
It reminds that I’m human and of all my pros and cons combined
It taught me that there’s a reason I’m a Prisoner of my own Mind….. -”

— If you date me

If you date me there’s some things you have to know,

1. There will be days where I get too sad to even get out of bed so please don’t get angry if I’m not replying.

2. I fight a war everyday inside my head and somedays there are battle scars on my body.

3. I drink to forget the demons I’m fighting, but I promise I am faithful.

4. I’ve hated myself for so long it’s hard to be told beautiful words that weren’t made for people like me, so forgive me when I cringe when you touch me.

5. I care way more then I’ll let you know and I’m really sensitive, nothing else to that.

6. I get scared that everyone is going to realize how awful I am and that they’re going to leave me so I apologize for making you tell me why you love me all the time.

7. I’m bad at kind of everything I do but I swear I will love you the best I can.

8. I like to drive at night because everything is blurred and I hope there will be something in the road and cause an accident.

9. I trust easily and forgive too often please don’t use that against me.

10. Thank you for loving me even on the bad days, I love you too I’m just not too good at showing it.

— e.a.s.

She was never crazy,
She just lived too vibrantly.
Always contained “too much” energy,
Constantly had a fire in her eyes,
Her vitality would radiate onto others.

The intensity of her spirit was just too much to take in at one time.

Her character wasn’t flawed,
It just underlined the flaws in everyone else’s personality.

- Unknown

“Wait for someone who says, “Holy crap, how did I get so lucky?” when you walk in the door, absolutely exhausted from work at 6pm after being married for 30 years. Wait for that, it’s more than worth it.”

— Rachel Dawson

“Letting go of her yesterday
Was harder than it seemed
She harboured millions of memories
Never to be redeemed.
Everyone around lived in their past
Wearing masks
Previously cast.

You’re not number one
If you happened to win the game yesterday.
You’re not rich
If you hoard all the worlds riches.
You’re not happy
With all your dreams achieved.

She pondered on the illusion
Of what she thought life would be.

Life must be lived each day
Not based on your yesterday.
With a heavy gulp,
She swallowed down the pain;
Never to be remembered again.”

The Royal Baby

The reason for their short appearance, and no interview, was the pretty cold weather. Catherine being the worried Mummy. Adorable. ♡

“When you are attracted to people, it’s because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most.”

It's gonna be May

You don’t have many people in your life that you can just tell anything to.” - Lauren Conrad

Wise words from Lauren Conrad. When it comes to trust people are usually so caught up in who they cannot trust that they forget to take time to think about and appreciate those people in their lives in which they can trust.

Trust is understandably hard to come by for multiple reason and I have learned that it easy to love people you can’t trust but how many people can also say they also trust the ones they love? Two very different but important things. Think about it.

Even if you only have one person in your life that you feel that you can be yourself around and tell just about anything to, feel blessed.

Be sure to appreciate them and let them know how much you do.
