I really like this design but I don’t want to work on creating the words inside the ASCII image. I’m just a bit too tired for that kind of work today. Source: Remembrance Day Poppy Lapel Badge | eBay
You’ve heard about the Words of the Year—Oxford’s vape, Merriam-Webster’s culture, and Dictionary.com’s exposure, to name a few. And perhaps you’re even eagerly awaiting the American Dialect Society’s own WotY vote, which will take place this coming weekend (I’ll be livetweeting from it!). But in 2014 we didn’t just communicate with words—we also…
It’s a simple project and only involves a couple of steps: pop off the backs of your jeweled earrings/broaches with wire cutters, then attach a magnet with super glue. Presto! You’ve got yourself a blinged out fridge magnet. Mega impact for the absolute minimum amount of effort. Or, in other words, my kind of DIY project.

I love finding ideas for upcycling broken brooches into something else you can use everyday, like this.
I read Les Miserables last year. It was a long book. I am writing a review of the book on Squidoo and found this wallpaper while looking for images to post. I like the words at the top. Inspiring for me as I try to make changes to myself and get back to running my sites again.
I started swimming at the YMCA, once a week so far.
I found this on Facebook and I love it! This is what I wish I could say to every young person from the age of about 10 up to the age where they understand and believe these words are about themselves. People may be 90 and still need to hear and understand these words. Teenagers may be those this was directed to because they are at a time of life where they don’t have a set purpose yet like children to look after, a house to pay for, or a job to show up for everyday. These are the burdens, challenges which scare us and yet give us a purpose and direction – something we have to do each day.
Young people can be in a middle ground which can be an oasis or no man’s land. (Look up no man’s land if you haven’t heard that phrase before). Just because you don’t have a purpose yet does not mean you are not needed and can not find yourself a unique purpose and direction each day. Choose something and do it. Choose something wisely, something which will make your world a better place, something which will make you happy and feel accomplished. Little things mean a lot so you don’t have to reach far to find something valuable to do.
The world loves you, especially you, our teenagers who have so much to give, so much life and so much greatness yet to come.
