    All right, so we broke up two months ago. I guess it was mutual, he was being distant, he lied by saying he was busy with work but then I found out he went to the club and that's why I hadn't heard from him. He was perfect for a month, and then when it started to get exclusive he drifted away out of nowhere. Assured me everything was fine when it wasn't, tried to communicate numerous times but just kept telling me he was a bit frustrated not find a new job, or that was busy. All right, so he didn't care, I ended it. Two months later, he sends me a happy birthday text and said he knows things didn't end well and when you have time, we can talk about it. All right, I asked what he wanted to talk about. He said that we could just talk, and about why things ended. And he said that in that moment, he didn't want to be in a relationship and that he still wasn't in one. And he said he didn't contact me to ruin my day and that he enjoyed his time with me, and that now that we are in contact we can talk or something like that. I told him I was surprised that he had contacted me as its been such a long time and it doesn't matter to me anymore and to take care. And he responded by saying again he hoped I had a great day or whatever. I didn't respond to that. Why would he ******* contact me just tell me he wanted to be single and on my birthday too. Does it mean he cares? Obviously its over but I am curious why he would do this.

How can you be against one thing but not for the other since the two are related. Why do people in college, and future generations to come have to pay for this? I'm sorry, but that money should be used for us, not for people on the other side of the globe where its used to buy weapons and kill people. If anything U.S. aid is only avoiding what will eventually come one day and perhaps make it more devastating.

    I am moving to Peru for a little while and I know it is a very different place than the U.S. I am deciding whether I should take it out or not. Every time I go to Peru, (before I got a piercing) I am consistently harassed on a daily basis. I will walk in Miraflores, and if I am alone for 10 minutes, at least 4 people will try to approach me. I am constantly stared at, as if I am some sexual object and they stare me up and down. People will whisper things into my ear, stand too close and I can't go anywhere without feeling like I am the star of the show. I am half Peruvian, but I am white and brunette so I stick out. Will my nose piercing bring more attention considering people are much more conservative. I walk across the street in very busy Miraflores and a guy said I was a doll and turned around to his friends and said, "She is alone, she is alone!" And tried to follow me. One said to my mom "Hello mother in law." Which was funny but most of the time it scares me. Will it ever be possible for me to drive to school there? Is this just part of normal life in Peru for women? Is this harassment all that it will ever be just harassment? I am not used to this kind of attention and I'm worried if my nose stud will bring more attention.

    1. I know a lot of people are not in favor of Islam. Especially with all the problems in the Middle East, 9/11 etc. 9/11 was horrible, don't get me wrong. But before 9/11, we were always present in the Middle East, and there is always going to be "death of civilians," and now since 9/11 we have been involved with the Middle East now more than ever. I wonder, how many deaths WE have caused, innocent people just the people who died in the towers. Nobody is the good guy, and we are if anything equally as bad or worse and not to mention selfish. (my opinion) 2. As for Balestine and Israel, its almost the same thing. Nobody is the good guy, they both kill each other. Israel are far from innocent. There is a lot of proof that they have been continuously making settlements on Baslestine's border or (what the U.N created). They are literally putting building in people's backyards. And Balestine is equally as bad in both respects. I don't understand why the U.S, supports Israel. We don't owe them anything yet they are literally getting billions of dollars from us every year. When will the day come when Israel can finally fend for itself? It's time for the U.S to be neutral and support neither side. Constantly getting involved only kills more lives in the end and makes the world hate the U.S. (my opinion)

Or he will place a hand on my back for a moment as if he is trying to get by to "see" the plan. Or very briefly for a moment on the waist "to get by." When I went to the office I saw him. And then I saw him again in the front and he said, "Why do you keep bumping into me?" And purposefully tried to, but I stepped to the side and laughed but avoided it. Then one say day he said, I looked really nice just casually. I realize he also puts his hand on the other hostesses and the others hostesses agree he is slightly touchy. When he cut me for my shift, he reached across to put a hand on mine telling me I can go home and I'm all set for like 2 seconds. It seems so casual/friendly but at the same time unnecessary. The thing is, I NEVER catch him looking at me, or does anything that seems like he is interested in anything. It seems more like part of his personality I suppose. But what kind of threw me off is that he is married with two kids. He shouldn't act like this right?

He would come over to look at the floor plan, and he placed a hand on my shoulder leaning in to look. Another time he placed a hand on my back, like on my hair and leaning in to look at the chart, later that evening. And another time he place a hand on my back and tapped a couple of times which I KNOW was just a friendly gesture because I was doing my job? I can't even remember. And another time he had both of his hands on my upper waist for like a split moment, I guess to make me move? Is he overly using his hands to just be friendly? None of the other managers ever placed a hand on me so he kind of stands out. Most managers would pretty much tell me to move or grab it lol.

I did only use one tablespoon of peanut butter instead and about 1 cup of almond milk, not even. But 690 calories! I could have a regular ice cream milkshake and it would be less then that. In terms of being healthy the banana smoothie is obviously healthier, but in terms of losing weight technically that would be gaining weight? Then my question is, is calories the only way to lose weight. Since I'm eating healthier, it probably boosts the metabolism?

Sure this might not be 100% effective, but still better then just sticking it in your pocket. Second, I would only ever consider shoplifting from Wal Mart. If I stole a bunch of make up, I'm doing a good thing believe it or not. I'm making the company lose money. In case for those of you who don't know, but Wal Mart manufacturing takes place abroad, mostly in Asia and hires people to work for them for only cents per hour. In South America they force people to take birth control so that they won't have to pay for their maternity leave and if you do get pregnant they make you get a abortion. They make people work up to 18 hours a day, hire children and put them in dangerous work environments. So morally speaking, before you judge me, when you buy your things from Wal Mart your supporting crimes that are illegal in the U.S. So morally speaking your all worse than me. Moral of the story, don't shop at Wal Mart or if you want to make a difference in the world and get free stuff, steal it from Wal Mart. lol Just a thought.

    I've been having a really hard time at college and in terms of my suitemates. One of my suitemates said today, "Its natural to talk bad about people." I didn't really understand that, I mean its not fine in any circumstance but if its someone your not friends with, lets admit it everyone does. But your friends too? I never have said anything behind my friends backs, or said anything bad about them. But my suitemates call this natural and they all say things about each other, including me. When I've literally never done anything, yet they judge me behind my back. They've said there was something wrong with my relationship because I didn't have sex yet, they said I'm too shy. and one of them has said that I wasn't "their kind of people." One of them wrote me a letter apologizing and said the reason why she has talked bad behind my back is because she does it because shes insecure about herself and that she wishes she was like me and pretty much said she wanted to be me. Honestly I can't stand them, and it really sucks because I recently transferred to this school and I feel like I'm in high school. I go to a huge party school so I don't know if that might be why (UMASS Amherst). I thought college was the best time of your life but I've only met girls that are obsessed with their social life and guys that just want to drink and have sex. Dorm life sucks and the only thing good about it is some professors and the few good people you actually meet.

But now I started college, during my first year I made some friends and by the end of the year I made some friends for life. Then I transferred, and now I go to an even BIGGER and one of the biggest party schools in the country, literally. I came her because its a good education and I had limited options. Everyone here is obsessed with their social life, I found out one of my suitemate's was saying stuff about me, like she didn't want to invite me to a party because I'd be to awkward. Then she said stuff like how there must be something wrong with my boyfriend and I because I didn't have sex with him yet. And we've been together for almost 3 years. She almost ruined one of roommates relationships because she went into her room crying telling her boyfriend said all these bad things to her. She is a pathological liar, and she forgave her! I just can't be around people that lie and are fake. Its been so much harder making friends here, especially if your a transfer. I'm so lonely, and I wish I could stop being shy and be myself and meet new people. I have such a hard time opening up to people, I become literally the opposite of who I really am. My friends from high school would say I'm loud, funny and crazy, literally. But here, everyone thinks, "I'm shy, too nice and quiet." I've tried everything to get over this. I will say depending on the person I meet I can open up so easily but that's rarely. I hate feeling like this and it sucks being shy. Sorry I'm just venting out on here.
