What Decade Best Fits Your Personality?

I took the quiz and here are my results :) The description isn't completely accurate, but the decade is probably right.


You're always a step ahead of what has become the norm, whether it be technology, cultural trends, or your political beliefs. Problematic world issues have become very important to you. You're independent, creative, and intelligent because you have to be in a culture that moves at such a fast pace. You are ultra dependent on your cell phone and to-do list, and know all the latest celebrity gossip (no matter how much you know it's a guilty pleasure). If someone could describe you in one word, it would be COMPETITIVE. Getting a high GPA in school, getting that promotion in your job, winning that sporting competition, or having the most cutting-edge computer are all high priorities for you. Most likely, you strive to be "politically-correct" and involved in social activism that you feel strongly about. You're responsible in the day and a total party animal at night. You like "indie," non-mainstream, non-"sell-out" bands but you secretly listen to the Top 40 songs on your radio when you drive alone. You're modern, driven, and have high expectations for everything you do.

"WHY ME?" Embarassing Stories

Stories that are so embarassing that you may find your own face turning red! Enjoy! :)  (but not too much. lol :P)

"For my history class, I had to do a PowerPoint presentation. Most of the slides were pictures, and while changing to my last slide, a big picture of my face with my crush Photoshopped next to me with a heart popped up onto the screen! He was in the class and turned completely red, plus everyone laughed hysterically. My evil little sister must have done that before I saved it on my flash drive. I was so mortified!" 

"I texted my best friend and said, 'Oh my gosh, did you see how cute Justin looked today?' I got a text back that said, 'Umm thanks,' and it was from Justin! Apparently I accidentally sent the text to him instead of my friend. The next day at school he came up to me in front of all his friends and said, 'So how gorgeous do I look today?' and everyone started laughing. I haven't talked to him since!"

"My school has an annual Vocal Event every year to showcase the schools talented singers. I didn't really want to, but I gave it a shot and decided to sing. At the end of the event, all of the singers were called back on stage for bows. Throughout the entire show, there had been a bubble machine running, causing the stage to become a little slippery. As I started to walk on stage, the girl in front of me slipped a little but regained her balance by catching my arm. Unfortunately for me, I went down, and the short dress I just happened to be wearing came up, showing off my thong. I sat there for a good few minutes while the audience laughed at my misfortune. Afterwards my older brother's friend came up to me, blushing. He told me he had been taping the Vocal Event and had zoomed in just as I fell. I was mortified!" 

"My boyfriend, Joe, hadn't texted or called me for two days straight. He told me he had food poisoning. Meanwhile, I was looking at my friend's MySpace page, and she had filled out answers to this survey. One of the questions was 'What did you do today?' Her answer: Got busy with Joe :) I was convinced my boyfriend had lied to me and was really hanging out with her, so I called up my friend and screamed at her, only to find out that her gay best friend's name was Joe! Oops!" 

"I was waiting for my mom to pick me up after a school dance, so when a car that looked exactly like hers pulled up, I ran up to it and got in. When I looked over at the driver, I realized it was not my mom! I was so mortified I got out of the car without saying a word and ran back into my school." 

"I was home alone in my room one day when I started singing Taylor Swift's 'Love Story' All of a sudden I heard my new phone beep — I picked it up and realized that I accidentally had recorded myself singing. But even worse, I had sent it to someone! I had been texting this guy I had a crush on earlier in the day, and decided to text him again, saying 'I think I just sent a recording of me singing to someone, haha, embarrassing.' All he said was, 'You sent it to me…' We haven't talked since!"

So my boyfriend and I have this ongoing argument about what word would be best to define "the condition of being in sync." The words I've come up with are insyncness and syncnicity, but he insists on syncage.

Please comment and let me know which of these words fits best so we can finally settle this. Also, feel free to let me know if there is already an established word for this so we don't have to make up one!

Happy blogging! :)

"WHY ME?" Love horror stories

These love horror stories are sure to make you cringe. Brace yourselves!

1. Today, I was in school and spotted my girlfriend in the hallway. I wanted to be all romantic and grab her like guys do in movies. I grabbed her wrist forcefully and pulled her out of the crowd. As I quickly leaned in to kiss her I broke her nose. -Anonymous, USA

2. Today, I was on Craigslist looking for a new guitar. I found the diamond earrings and necklace set I gave to my girlfriend last year. She wants 50 bucks for them.

3. Today, my girlfriend and I were waiting for the bus. The weather had been cold and snowy recently, and I'd realized I'd forgotten my transit card. She nonetheless got on the bus without me, I had to walk it alone in the snow. -kippis05, USA

4. Today, my daughter said she want's to be a stripper like daddy's girlfriend. We're still married. -ShayisPay101, USA

6. Today, there was an extremely attractive girl at youth group, so I decided to introduce myself. Her reply was, "Wow, I've always wanted to meet a gay guy!" -Richard, mobile.

7. Today, my pissed off girlfriend used a window marker to write racist comments on my car. This would include: nazi symbols, white power, and a few others I won't mention. I live in a predominately black neighborhood. -..., USA

The Art of Upcycling

According to Wikipedia, Upcycling is "the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value."
So basically it means you take something you would normally throw away, and turn it into something new and useful.

Upcycling reduces the use of new resources, reducing the emission of greenhouse gases and the amount of money spent on new materials. This makes it great both for the environment AND the economy.

Keep reading to find out where to buy upcycled items, and how to do some upcycling on your own!
