30 Hour Famine

So as I said before. I just did a 30 hour famine. The link is here. (twice on here so far!)
Now I didn't do this to seem "cool" or to say "Oh, I've gone 30 hours without food before." I did it because I hate seeing people, children and adults, suffer. Because I want to make a different. And I know it's what God would want me to do. And before you shut this down because I mentioned God, we had Athiests doing this also. Now this was a church sponsored event, and I feel we are being quite successful.

If you haven't checked out the site, its for feeding hungry kids (mostly in Africa but my group in feeding Afghanistanian kids). Now I know we CONSTANTLY see the commercials staring Britney Spears or whoever asking for money for these children. But saying and doing is two different things. Did you know:

1) Some families in these countries have to live on less than $1.25. One of us will spend five times that for one meal, and do it again later. These people would want to kiss our feet if we gave them five bucks.

2) There is enough food to end world hunger. The problem is getting it to the people. They can't afford to buy it, or the get the education needed to get a job and afford the food. Why can't we give it to them instead of giving it to the dog. Who's life is more important? A child that may save your life one day or an animal that may be the cause of your death..jussaying. I'll save a child before I save my kitten (no matter how much I adore the fluff ball)

3) There are more people with a cell phone, than people with a toilet. What's more important? Telling your boyfriend you love him for the hundredth time, or helping someone get the proper sanitation they need. Over in some countries, the water from their outhouse mixes in with their drinking water and they don't have what they need to purify it.  More than 1 of 4 people in Afghanistan don't have access to clean water.Yeah, still think that iPhone is more important?

4) There are 925 million people starving, globally. That's like, 3 times the U.S. population. We are throwing food out because its been in the fridge for a day or we have the taste for something different. Come on, seriously? Invite someone who can't afford a meal over to pick it up. Or go bring it to them.

5) A child dies from hunger related issues every 8-12 seconds. Yeah while I'm typing this and you are reading, a child is dying. Depressing? Yes. Horrible? Yes. Preventable? Yes. There is no age range either. He/She may be 12 or 3 years old. And even more die from diseases like malaria, diarrhea, and so on because they aren't getting the nutrition needed to build a strong immune system or to even get the cures they need because they can't afford it.

6) 1 out of 3 girls have to be married by (and sometimes younger than) 15 just so they can keep up tradition and help their families. These girls are forced to be doing stuff they have no business doing at that age. Because they can't afford a better life. Come on, how would you feel if you had to be forced into this?

7) Less food will cause a stunt in growth. Children need to grow. How can they when they aren't getting what they need to continue on?

Guys this isn't something to ignore. I think the worse part of it is, is that this DOESN'T AFFECT US. It's so easy to overlook. We all complain about something (school, nasty food, a test, blahblahblah) and the truth is that these children would LOVE to have our life. They wouldn't mind school. They'd be ecstatic to get the opportunity to take a test. We are all so spoiled and lucky, we just don't ever think about it.

After I finished the famine at 6:00 p.m. tonight, our leader and a few others bought us all pizza to celebrate our success. We felt horrible. We stopped eating because we thought "if those kids could see all of this pizza, they wouldn't know how to react. They'd love it!" Even though we ate because we needed to, we still felt bad. We are still taking money. I hate eating now. I feel bad about it when I spend 5 bucks on a burger. 5 bucks could easily feed a family, or at least one kid for a week. Seriously people, we need to grow up and look at the world around us. I'm slowing down my food intake and I'm going to do more for these families. Maybe not tomorrow, but I am. It's a difference between saying and doing, and I plan on doing. How about you?

Remember: Hunger isn't a statistic. It is someone's child, mother, father, sister, etc.

Do Something. Please.

I'm Not Dead Yet

Hi! I know it's been a while since my last post, so I'm doing a little update!

Here is the list of important things I've done recently..things that rock and suck:

1) Grades aren't so hot..they are kind of warm. Hope they aren't cooling down :(
2) Did a 30 hour famine *will do some detail laterr*
3) Constant rehearsals
4) Didn't get into Emory...yeah this sucked the most.
5) Began building a stronger relationship in my Religion
6) Got a new role model that I soooo relate too(:
7) About to watch Talladega Nights!---I love Will Ferrel<3
8) Had 6 new kitties added to my cat family!
9) Helped a friend with her prom dress
10) Did HOT make-up..seriously. I made Bitch Slap look almost like Sugar Pill. <--That's what's up (as the youngins say)/
12) Read over 10 books in two weeks.
13) Played Life, Spoons, Uno, Life, and other board games repeatedly for the last 3 days.

So details! I'm dedicating a second post about the famine so... let's start with my new role model!
*****DRUM ROLL*****
The wonderful, Elizabeth I of England.
Why is she my role model? Because I she gives me hope. These past few months I honestly got the sense that I have absolutely no one that I can easily and truly trust and love. Yes I have family and my company members and I love them dearly, but that doesn't put them in the position of where I need them most. She went her whole life only being able to trust one person, at least 100% (ok maybe 95%?) Anywho, though I haven't found that person (s) yet I feel that I may. And she was so powerful, so strong and she didn't need anybody to rely on. She had her own support system - herself. She knew how great she was and she showed all of England. I want to be like her. Powerful, independent, loving, and care for my people (all humans). She is exactly what I want to be.
And Kate Blanchett just made me love Elizabeth I even more :3
So I still have no camera :( So no photo dump of my make-up and shizz. So I'm going to end it with some questions for you all to answer and start my famine post(:
Who is your role model and why? Got any hot make-up you want to show? Didn't you just like adore the hunger games?...the movie. Not the books. How have you guys BEEN recently? Gimme all thuh deets(: Love you, Dearies<3

Summer Bands

Hello, Lovelies! So I feel the need to let you know that still no camera :( CURSE YOU PERSON THAT STOLE MY CAMERA!!! --not seriously, but still. I'm pissed. But's spring! Is it me, or does it feel tad bit more like summer? Either way it's nice and warm out, and we still have that beautiful breeze! My second favorite time of the year!
But as I said before, it seems a tad bit more like summer at times. Maybe it's just this good 'ole Missippi weathuh --> I meant to misspell :3 --> But due to this, I've begun thinking about my summer bands! You know, those bands that just scream "Summer is here! Relax! Have fun! Dance!" Here is a little mini list I've have had on my playlist lately! It is bands and songs:

 We The Kings

1) I put them first because they are like, my ultimate summer band! Their beats
are just happy and playful in most songs. It is also partially because I 
first heard them with "Check Yes Juliet" in the summertime. :3

 All Time Low

2) First of all, I'm in a committed relationship with Alex. Girlies stay away, please!
But anywho, they are another band that I heard in the summer, so it is
a key reason of why they are on this list. But though they do have some
slower songs, there are a good amount of fast paced, happy, party songs.
I love dancing around my room in me undies while blaring them!
I first started with "Remembering Sunday." It's slow, but still<3

 1901 by Phoenix

 3) It is such a great little song! I listen to it year round, but it makes me
think of those fun, late summer nights with friends!

 The Unicorns

4) Ah, another cool band! One of my ex-best friends introduce me to them.
She figured I'd like them because of my love for unicorns..and she was right!
I love that 60's rock feel of their music. It's good sway music(:
Mayday Parade

5) Ok, they are probably on here because I am in love with them. They're music
is good for any time of the year in my opinion. Therefore, they are automatically
a summer band. Along with a spring, fall, and winter band! Great lyrics, great
beats, and just all around awesome! Enjoy!

Well this was a mini list. When summer rolls around I'll put up more good bands and songs to have some fun to! So that's all! I'm off to watching America's Next Top Model reruns. Have a great rest of the day, Loves<3

Make-Up is Sexy

I found her blog on Her name is Karolina and after reviewing her blog for a second time (plus the comment she made below, haha) I realize there is a translator on the top of her blog so we won't be stuck trying to figure out what she's talking about! :3 But the link is here.
