Never Gonna Give Up On You

Daily Prompt: Never Gonna Give Up On You!

You. We know *you* are vice-free, dear Daily Post reader. But, or perhaps we should say, “butt,” others around you and in your life are riddled with vices: they smoke; they eat too much celery; they hog the covers; they can’t keep their hands out of the office candy bowl. Which vice or bad habit can you simply not abide in others?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us VICE.

I have changed a lot of things in my life since a year ago. I’ve cut soda and most junk out of my diet, and I’ve looked for substitutes. The only real candy I eat is dark chocolate. Now, I’m not perfect, I don’t eat 100% healthy all of the time, I mean who can? But I try my best. I don’t eat out at restaurants, and I try to stay away from highly preserved foods, just for health reasons. Stress has made it so hard on me that I’ve gained back the 20 lbs. I lost last year, and my body feels exhausted and awful. I really need to cut out all of the junk and start working out everyday. I would feel so much better. So my vice I ask? Over eating, over portioning. It’s a pretty decently big problem.I can’t seem to get that together. I am so hungry I eat a lot and then I am severely bloated afterwards. It’s just so difficult for me to eat healthy, but days like then, when I blog about it, I give myself motivation. I guess I’m odd. -MHC

B is for Brave

This world. This world that we have made and have brought to life is ridiculously scary. So many people filled with carelessness and selfishness. We deserve an award for the most selfish planet in the universe, seriously. We had everything, but some how we always want more. We are never satisfied with what we have. The brave people are the poor-middle class families who go along with their own business, their own small jobs, and are decently happy most of the time, sort of. And if they try to live in a big city and try for a big job, 2 things happen. 1. They are ruined for life. They have the job, but now they cannot act like a poor-middle class person anymore, they have to act “better” than anyone else. 2. They do not get the job. They are completely made to feel worthless and no good. Humiliated and jaded.

Personally, that upsets me.It upsets me that since 1200, if not before that, money, wealth, is all that matters to anyone. The rich lived long and the poor tried to survive as long as they could. It’s quite a pity that our world is this selfish. Maybe it’s because I’m in the poor class. Maybe it’s because some days, I feel it would be so wonderful for me to live in a big city with a big hairdresser job, but most days, I don’t want that. Maybe it’s because most wealthy people spend their money on unnecessary ridiculousness, because they have to not only have “the part”, but look it and act it. Just a thought. Just an idea from a lower class young adult. -MHC

Dream Big

Daily prompt: Money 4 Nothing

If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORK.

Working as a nail tech and hair dresser is my dream job. Having a mostly booked schedule and great; likable clients is my dream job. Working in an amazingly great quality salon with the greatest coworkers who are honest and over-all just really great people, is my dream job. Changing people’s lives for the better and inspiring people to do great things, is my dream job. Influencing people into greatness and helping them succeed in whatever they wish to succeed, is my ultimate dream job.

I have the license. I am starting to get the clients. I have the perfect job atmosphere. The rest is what I’m working on. Right now, I love the people I work with, the coworkers and clients. My coworkers are so trustworthy and humble people. I course I love what I do, I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t! I’m just ready for the rest. -MHC

Does it even matter to you?

Do you ever think, “If I do/don’t do this, it wouldn’t ever matter. No one will read or see it or even care. What’s the point?”  Sometimes I feel this way about a lot of things. Am I the only one? I mean, me blogging, or updating on facebook, am I changing someone’s point of view or helpings someone when I share my feeling? Sometimes, I just feel as though, I don’t make a difference at all in this world, and I want to so badly that it hurts. Feedback anyone? -MHC

What goes around, comes back around baby

Daily Prompt: Karma Chameleon
This just in: let’s pretend that science has proven that karma is a thing. Your words and actions will influence what happens to you in the future. How (if at all) will you change your ways?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CIRCLE

Honestly, if Karma was real, the only thing I would have to worry about is my past, my teenage years. Not that I went around being mean to people, but I could have been nicer. My senior year of high school I was a better person, I had changed, grew up, and now I try my hardest not to judge anyone and to be as nice as I can. I don’t think anyone at all deserves to be treated badly.

Now, I know when I’m stressed, I don’t treat my boyfriend very good, but I am working on that. I just kind of forget that everyone else has feelings too. I don’t want to say that I’m perfect, because I’m certainly not, but if that karma thing was real, I would have good karma coming back to me. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. (:

A is for addiction

You’d be surprised to know that the chemicals in foods and drinks are what make you addicted to them. The caffeine and high fructose corn syrup in soda and candy, not the food itself. So what am I addicted to? Chocolate. No ifs, ands, or buts. Its my to go item whenever I am stressed, sad, or in a sweets mood. I’m not one to go for the sour candies or chewy candies, except for Trollies or the generic gummy bears. They are pretty great.

I use to be addicted to Mountain Dew, and had to have at least one if not more every day. A year ago, I quite, cold turkey. The greatest choice I’ve ever made. The first week or so, wasn’t great, but I got through it. And now I’m free from it! I don’t have to have it everyday! Actually, I used green tea, sweetened with honey, as a substitute. It really helped, because it has a healthy dose of caffeine to kick the addiction to the curb. When you continue to put let say mountain dew for an example, your brain changes itself and adapts to make it think that you need this in order to survive. And certain chemicals hit your “feel good” sensors, and that’s how you become addicted. But eventually, you’ll need more and more of this chemical to make those “feel good” sensors feel satisfied.

Addiction its self is a strong word. Just look at it, it is filled with emotional problems and fear. It’s not a pretty word at all, I guess that I doesn’t help that it’s not a pretty definition too. Every single thing in this world can become addictive. Think to yourself, could you live without your phone? without the internet? Without the drink that you are drinking, as long as it’s not water? Or any unhealthy food you have put into your body this week? Can you live without Facebook or music? I want you to think about something that if you had to, you could possibly, maybe be without (not a necessity, like deodorant, water, or healthy foods. Something that you use daily, that’s not doing your body good or maybe doing your body and mind very bad. If you would go just ONE week without it, could you? I want you to do this. Just one week, see how you feel. If you are absolutely dying without it, then don’t go any further. If you are okay, do another week. Sometime in there, you’ll have craving sparks, don’t cave in. Drink water or eat an apple, which is full of natural caffeine. You should not be controlled by an addiction, by a chemical.

I am going to do this with unhealthy sweets, sours, everything. Chocolate, pizza, or anything that I know this isn’t the healthiest for my body. At least, I’m going to try. We will see how it works out cutting out cold turkey.

Thanks for listening. -MHC

Secrets and Adventures

Daily Prompt: Take that, Rosetta!
If you could wake up tomorrow and be fluent in any language you don’t currently speak, which would it be? Why? What’s the first thing you do with your new linguistic skills?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us TONGUE

This is a rather difficult question, but I’ll go with the first thing to come to mind: Italian. Its such a beautiful language. Some day it would be so wonderful to be able to visit Rome and the surrounding countries. Most of all I want to visit London, England. Everything about London, makes me fall in love with it even more. Its so beautiful, full of secrets, and adventure. There’s over 250 languages that are spoken in London, making the capital the most linguistically diverse city in the world. With English, Bengali, and Silheti, being the top three. So I’ll opt for Italian.

The first thing that I’d do Is by a one way plane ticket out of here! Straight to Italy. Then I would travel, where exactly do you ask? Any where I wanted to go. And I would talk to everyone I met along the way. Just so I could hear myself speak this new language, and understand what they are saying in return. It would be pretty great. (:
