It's My Birthday!

I also want to take this time to talk about me leaving.   Not for good, of course, but I feel like for a while. 

It's been a good run so far, and I'd love to keep it that way.  That's why I need to form my ideas for this coming months.  I know I want to continue with The Basics and reviews, but is that it? Like I feel like could be doing more.  But I limit myself.  On purpose you see. I feel like it is fairly easy to give away so much personal information here on the Internet since people can't see your face, or know what you're like in the real world.  Its so easy to be someone else here on ye ol' Internet. 

That's why I want a break. I need to stay as genuine as I can be. 

So do you guys have any ideas? What is something new you want to see?  I'm trying to improve here.  Would you like to have a running story here? (I'd have to make one up, plot it and such, but it is do-able.)


Lastly, you might be asking: "So how long will you be gone?"

Good question, I don't know exactly.  I need to come up with something for my 200th post.  That needs some planning.  And I just feel like I need a long break.  A step back into my social life, instead of behind a computer screen.  So the answer is uhhh sometime in the future.  I don't know when. But I'll be back. 

I love you all. 

Goodbye for now!

I found out like 5 minutes ago, Japan got hit with a 8.9 earthquake and a tsunami hit them hard.  Hundreds of bodies were found floating in the flood. 

And Honolulu is next.  Maybe California.

Guys, brace yourselves. 

Maybe the world is going to end.

The video

5th largest earthquake since the 20th century.

Pray please for these people.

Boy I Hear You In My Dreams


This is the last one and I'm done for who knows when. 

So who want's to hear some date dets? Well, too bad your gonna hear them anyway.

Okay so last night was my second date all together.  I don't know if I told you about my first date--probably not because it was really awkward and horrible.  But I went to this dance with a boy who I've liked for a while.  He asked me to go with him Monday of  last week.  Anyways, it went really well, I thought.  First, we ate at a restuarant with Lauren and her date.  There was the dance part which was fun, though the music could have been better.  I was so nervous, but yet I wasn't. Maybe more hesitant that anything. 
My favorite part as Lucky song by Glee came on we danced together doing this dip move.  He asked me if wanted to spin and I went "sure". So we did. and a minute later I was like "your turn!" and I spun him.  It was great. 

It was almost like a dream.  I woke up this morning thinking back wondering if I just did that or not.  Its incredible to be with the one you like and especially one who is your friend. I mean its one thing to imagine something like that Lucky song could happen, but then when it does... I can't describe it.  It's unreal. 

And you guys are going to kill me.  Do u remember way back when, I told you about this guy who ignored me all summer?  Well, my date was that guy.  And before I get heat for this, I want to say something:

If you want something, you have to earn it.  You have to work for it.  I was too shy and unexperience to flirt and try to get him to like me. Back then I barely knew him.  I just met him through friends.   I was afraid.  I thought he'd guess on his own and sweep me off my feet, but that only for the movies.  This time I did try. It was when we were setting up for another dance we actually had conversations. (And by that point, I was done with the ignoring part. ) That's when I realized I wanted to be his friend.  It just escalated there.  But I promise you. I'm on my gaurd.  I'm keeping a level head.

So what do you think?

Comment below only; no questions on formspring for reasons I won't say.

Thank you. I'll see you later.


Review: I Am Number Four Movie


I've really been behind on my reviews.  I guess that'll be something I'll focus on when I come back from my blogging break.

In case, you didn't know, the movie is based of a book.  I haven't read it yet, but seeing the movie makes me want to.

It's not you typical alien movie, where strange looking creatures arrive to abduct or kill the human race. These aliens look like us and actually came here for survival.  However, there are evil aliens, who destroyed their enemies home planet, and are hunting the good aliens to extinction. 

It's a fascinating premise.  And the main character, John Smith, couldn't get any less hotter.  Like any movie, there were some logical holes in the plot, which bothered me.  But I like everything to fit together and make sense.  It wasn't totally noticeable, so don't let that hinder you from seeing this movie.   I glanced at the book plot and there are some things left out, but what do you expect out with a book-to--movie movie?  They just can't put everything thing in an hour and a half show.

The effects were fantastic! It's amazing what movie people can do with effects nowadays.

Characters were average.  Same old, same old acting.  No one wowed me. Though I'm glad Pettyfer fixed the glitches in his American accent.  Seeing the 2 min. Beastly trailer, you can tell its a struggle for him to hid his English accent. Oh and I do want to point out there are no brunettes (not counting extras) in this movie.  That's a let down. :(

Overall, it was a good movie.  Nothing wowed me too much, excepted the effects.  Good stunt work.  Predictable plot.  But a fun movie anyway. Expect a sequel. 

Do I recommend this movie? Yes

Reply: Skin Care And Treatment


This has been looong overdue, and I'm making time right now to do this and that movie review I promised. 

Also, before we get started, I've been debating this for a while, but I'm going to take an indefinite break.  I promise I've not given up on That's What She Said! I just need some time to gather up some ideas and prioritize on other things right now.  I'm not sad at the least, I'm actually in a good place.

So enough of my blabbering (we'll save that for a later time.) Let's get started!

Firstly, if you haven't read this post: The Basics: Prepping The Face + Make Up Primer please do so now.  There's a lot of information about keeping the face clean and oil-free, if that is the kind of answer you're looking for.

If that's not enough, here is the little info I know about "blackheads, acne, and etc."

Blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or whatever you want to call them are basically created the same way: build up of dirt, grim, and oil in the pores. The only difference between all of these facial blemishes is the way in which to you treat them.

Blackheads and whiteheads are more deep set in the skin.  Meaning it's harder to get rid of them.  The only way I know how to get rid of mine are pore strips. The downfall of using these are that the oils you just pulled up leave some oozing which can spread over to other areas of your skin, allowing more blackheads/whiteheads to develop. To avoid this: 1) wash your face as usual 2) use the pore strip as instructed 3) apply an acne gel (no creams!)

Gels tend to dry faster and don't produce much oil on your skin.  Only do this once a week. 

Pimples are more of a surface blemish.  They aren't as deep set nor as hard to get rid as blackhead--though on rare occasions then can be.  With regular pimples let them run their course.  That is the hardest thing to do.  Many people say to pop them, but that actually does more damage than not. If you have a really bad pimple, one that is large, red and hurts a lot, there are 2 options.  Zeno, a device that heats up the blemish to progress its development stage to get rid of it faster, or the home remedy trick.  Here's how it works: 1) wash your face like normal 2) ice the spot for twenty minutes 3) wet a cotton swab with lemon juice and hold it on that spot for 5 additional minutes

You'll definitely see results the following morning. I swear this works. ;)

Hmm, and yeah I think that's it.. I can't think of any more advice to give.  If you have any questions, comment, email, or formspring me. 

Adios, and good luck!

Don't Do It. Just Don't.

It's truly not worth taking your own life.  Please please understand that.  I know, at times, we have that thought pop into our minds.  And maybe we have that thought that we might actually go through with it.

This is me telling you to stop and think harder.

Who are you going to effect?
Are you really making life for everyone else around you better or happier?
By killing yourself, will that really make all your worries go away?

It's weak. It's dumb.  It's insensitive to the ones you love.  You have no idea how much you mean to someone else.  You could be their world.  The one person they live for.  And to do something so toxic is just disgusting to me.  There are better ways of dealing with your problems.  Pushing away everyone else and trying to hold things that really bother you is not healthy. 

So don't try anything dumb.

I've use to know only one person who killed themselves, now I know two.

You broke her heart.  You were the only one she had close to a father. 

I hope it was worth it.
