Money saving tip #1

I'm not rich with money or anything, nor am I a financial guru, I do, however like to save ma moneys(went all gangsta on ya bam). So when people see that I drive a semi nice vehicle they ask one of the following, #1 do you do have a job that is less then moral? #2 Is that you're parents?#3 are you actually a rich old woman who has used her wealth to rejuvenate her face and skin so you look 21(I'm not even kidding I was asked this once)?  The answer to all of these is no.
What I do is I save, and save, and save some more. This can be difficult because, well for one I am a girl and I like to shop, but also just prices of things lately are pretty rediculas. Something that I have found that helps a Little bit is using cards like Esso extra, Petro points,Air miles (pictured above) and other things like that.
I ALWAYS hear people say "no" when the cashier asks if said costumer would like to sign up for whatever points system thing that business has. I always shake my head and think..how silly, and extra 5 minutes at the register signing up for this thing will actually save you some $$. The way I see it is you have to pay for gas right? so why not swipe that esso or petro points card every time you pay, eventually you'll have enough points for FREE gas, I am always pleasantly surprised when this happens:)
Another card I find lovely is the scene points card, Do you even know How many free movies I have accumulated! I had like 8 at one point, now that right there is just clever I tell ya, Plus just having the card gets you 10% off concession! I also like the shoppers drug mart optimum card, if you go on double points days you get, well, double points, I once bought an ipod on double points day and I got 50,000 points or something like that which converted into $150.00, That was just great!
 The point I am trying to make is you have to pay for stuff anyways right, so take the extra few minutes maybe even seconds, and swipe the card.
I have attached the websites of my favorite websites, enjoy!

Almost a year

Dearest Joesph.
Its almost been a whole year since you've been gone.
Some days, most days I still don't believe it, and then when I do believe it, I don't want too:(
I have all our conversations still on my computer and they make me laugh, we talked some strange lingo my friend! You missed the new twilight, you would have really liked it, it was creepy and such, very much your style! Remember when we went to see Sherlock Holmes? well a second one came out, but I didn't see it, cause I wanted to go with you.   Remember that time you were telling me about your tattoo's and I said I was to scared to get one? You said, "oh isylla its not that bad", well I got one just for you, I love it, and you were right, it really wasn't that bad! I know you didn't like to smile, but some how when we hung out I made you laugh, your smile was enchanting and I will always remember it, I hope you are at peace. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you.
Miss you dear.

-Doe eyes.

kony 2012 don't be a hater.

well if you live in the year 2012...which I am assuming most of you do ( Ya that's right some people are periodically confused ok?)  you have or have access to the Internet and or face book. I don't know about you but last night I was just going along my not so important face book business and my feed just goes nuts with this Kony 2012 thing. Not gonna lie when I say I didn't really look real deeply into the issue...I was after all, eating a snack and I was more interested in that, how ever, when I was trying to fall asleep, I was like ok lets give this a look.  I did some research an watched the video, to sum it all up this guy, Joesph Kony is a terrible person x800, makes army's of innocent children and forces them to do the unthinkable. If you are a decent human you realize this is outrageous and must be stopped.
Things like this stir up emotions in people 70% of this emotions is good and positive, which is refreshing to see in this self first others second God last if at all, type of world, but that remaining  30% of people are negative Nelly's, but we are gonna call em haters. The question I have is why.. WHY must there be haters especially with things like this, weather or not this campaign is successful in its goal or not is beside the fact,this charity was started to spark a fire of love, love for something that isn't affecting us in our enriched with technology  lives yet we still show support, why? because these kids are kids and people are people regardless of color, gender, or skin color.  The fact is there are some viral causes that are solely based on opinions, gay marriage, mac vs PC, countless religious debates etc, if you want to get all up in some ones face cause you disagree that's life debates are fine if done tastefully, however this isn't debatable these are kids being made to kill their family and friends, among other things, there should be no "Anti Kony" "I don't support kony" If you don't want to give money that's fine, if you think its a money scam and don't want any part in it fine, or if you just think its stupid because there is no way that we can help, then keep it to yourself. Making people aware of whats going is something in of its self. no need to make people feel bad for caring, People need to start caring again for the right reasons, Change a heart, change the world.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. - Psalm 37:3

The vow

Like most females.....I am a female who enjoys the odd romantic movies no, no I thoroughly enjoy ALL romantic movies, you might even say I am a lush when it comes to them, and that I'd pay to see even the most outrageous of romantic films, including but not limited too..
#1. Justin Bieber dating someone who isn't famous and maybe doesn't even care about his fame....or his hair.
#2. Patrick Dempsey for once being cheated on, instead of lying about being married (i.e Greys Anatomy, Valentines day etc.)
*disclaimer, I thing both the Biebs and Dempsey are swell people I'm just saying if they made movies like that...I'd watch them,....anyways The Vow....right.

Top Complaints I have heard about the vow and my replies to them:
#1 It is Cheesy- Hmmm you don't say..a movie about a dashingly hansom man doing all sorts of loving and romantic things to win over the love of a beautiful women, did you expect anything less then cheesy? My guess is that you were dragged to this movie by A) your girlfriend, or B)  a group of girls on a "hang out", do not insult them by calling this movie cheesy, they are already thinking it but they don't care. My other guess is that you are a guy, went to this movie alone, because you actually did want to see it and are calling it cheesy because you are trying to appear cool. in which case you are right... it was totally "Cheesy" *winks*
#2 It dragged on and on- You are at a movie, to see a movie, if you didn't want to be sitting there for 1hr+ then stay home... simple.
#3 It gives girls an unrealistic view of men-  This was men's  boys top complaint about this movie.  Here is a thought, you could actually pay attention and put effort into your relationship then at least while you're sitting there, watching this movie  against your will you won't feel guilty, just sayin.
#4 The ending was terrible - EXCUSE ME? the ending is terrible? Think of the other movies in this genre like, Dear John, now THAT was a terrible ending, or a walk to remember, she dies for goodness sake. at least in the vow, she gets to experience falling in love all over again how sweet.

All in all I think this was a sweet movie was it cheesy? yes sort of. but it really was thoughtful, sad, and though provoking. I also like the fact that they were advocates of love without all the smut, Leo was very respectful to his clueless wife, listen here folks, you don't have to be a class A jerk, or a scantily clad hooker to be loved, and have a good life.
