But here goes...

5 Foods That I Currently Enjoy Snacking On

Trying to cut down on snacks in my mission to be a thin svelte single girl in my 30s.
(and to make all random ex-boys feel bad that they screwed uop...hahaha...)

I did say trying - i have *so* not completely stopped...

jyagariko - love these potato chips stick things. any flavour works for me...
cheerio ice cream - way better than haagen daz, and less than half the price - bargain!
korean seaweed - damn tasty (and kind of halthy - i think/hope!)
banana chips - crunchy sweetness for that afternoon slump
grapefruit - for some reason i am having cravings for them lately...weird me

5 Musicians that I currently listen to

now this is a toughy - how can i just choose five?
but here goes...

Rolling Stones - they make me smile & sing
Mogwai - new album is bloody lovely
Johnny Cash - he makes me jiggle (that came out way worse than i intended)

Sigur Ros - somehow they still manage to make me cry
Sonic Youth - been reveisiting some of their older stuff lately - still rocks!

And i think that about does it!

Las Chicas, oh, you know how to make a girl cry.... How i long for a big Saturday night out that leads naturally into a long sleep in, followed by a 2:30pm brunch (sorry im late) in the sunny, leafy courtyard of Las Chicas, with a wee Zara stop on the way back to Harajuku station....

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
