I don't understand when people complain about being overweight and not doing anything about it. However, I feel sorry for the people that have eating disorder meaning they will eat endlessly when they're depressed. For those that eat because they enjoy eating then complain about their weight need to realize it won't go away on its own, they need to work at it by exercise. For those who eat to cope with depression need to find other ways to cope with it like seeking professional help or pick a hobby they will enjoy doing so they can forget about eating.

Love isn't about passion, lust, or attraction. It's about learning to complement and to grow with each other. It's about doing love-things, even when you don't feel like it, even when life drives you to insanity. Love is commitment, forgiveness, and understands. Love is patience even when you are angry you should always handle it with a smile on your face. Love is when you need someone to be a part of your life no matter if you are going through bad time or good time. It is all about caring for one another and be there for each other.

Today I have decided to share my essay in class so my classmates and the professor can proofread it. I thought the essay was nice and short but the classmates didn't seem to like it very much. They said it needed more details and there are too many repetitions. It's funny how the same girl makes the same comment every time we read other people's paper in class but she has not once shares her paper with us in class. Since most of her comments are valid, I would love to read her paper just to see if it is flawless.

Internet is an essential tool to your daily life. You can pretty much get any information and do anything via internet. You can take classes online and earn your degree, get news updates from any country, shop, pay bills, and you can even find a friend or maybe a lover online. There are many things you can do on internet and without it you may feel impairment in someway. At least I will, I won't know what to do if I don't have access to the internet. I depend on it so much that it's now part of my life.

What is love? Love can be defined as a strong liking for someone or something. Love is affectionate feeling for different people including husband, wife, children, friends, co-workers, and God. However, the love for each of these is completely different. Love is an intense feeling of affection, an emotion and even affects the way a person acts. Feeling of love is usually strong between a husband and a wife but the type of love is different from love for a child. Love for a husband can be different from love for God. Yet, without love what would life be like?

Friendship occurs when you care about someone, want her to do well, and wish her the best in life. It is also means comfort. You should be there for your friends through good and bad times. You should listen and try to help them. You should not discourage them but instead encourage them so they can succeed. Having good friendship is like having a great team of cheerleaders. The shouting and cheering will give you the motivation and strength to overcome any obstacles you may have without them you may be loss and confuse. These are my thoughts of friendships.

I have to say life is too short and we should enjoy every moments of it. I've received a phone call from my friend who I haven't seen in a week. He was limping when I saw him last time. We thought he'd sprained his angle. Well it comes to find out he had blood clot in his leg. If he didn't go to the doctor and continue to walk on that leg, he could have died. He had surgery and was in the hospital for a week. He is fortunate to be alive and I'm glad he is ok.

In our world of being "on the go" and always rushing to do something, cell phones have become a necessity. People use them everywhere: schools, restaurants, malls, parks, and of course, in their cars. Nevertheless, what most people don't realize is they're more likely to get into a wreck while driving and talking on cell phones. When I see people yakking on the cell phones while driving, I just want to run into them and say, "shut up and drive!" They should prohibit talking on cell phones while driving and maybe this would help bring down the auto accident rates.

Abortion, what does that mean to you? Well in my opinion, it means killing innocent babies. Abortion is morally wrong unless the mother is in any real danger. This is the process of taking a baby's life. Even though it is not fully developed, it is a living thing. So in a sense, it is murder. Nevertheless, even though abortion is wrong, the mother should have the right to get rid of the baby if it was in the case of rape, incest or the life of fetus is in danger. Otherwise, she should take full responsibility of her actions.

Today teenagers are more familiar with sex, have more sex partners, and are engaging more in unprotected sex than any other generation. When teenagers engage in unprotected sex they fail to realize all the consequences that may follow from having unprotected sex, one of the consequences is getting pregnant. Teenage pregnancy is a major problem in the US. Teenage parents, their children, and our society are still greatly affected. Americans need to be aware of the problem, so we can come together and resolve it. If we don't come together to resolve this problem, our future could be at risk.

Imagine living in a fast pace, where sounds, images, and thoughts are constantly shifting. Feeling easily bored, yet helpless to keep your mind on tasks you need to complete. Distracted by unimportant sights and sounds, your mind drives you from one thought or activity to the next. These are characteristics of ADHD, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which many people suffer from this disease. It could lead to anxiety or depression, poor school performance, maintain relationship, and problems with social behavior. Most people are on medication to help them cope with the symptoms and allow them to maintain their normal life.

There was an article on fatal dog attack on a little boy yesterday. I've heard about it on the news over the weekend but didn't pay close attention to it. That little boy was killed by a pittbull; they don't know what trigger the attack. After reading the article, it makes me wonder if my rottweiler could turn on my family or me; especially when statistic stated rottwieler is number two on the list to have potential of attack and kill its owner. My dog has completed obedience school and is good with people but he is still an animal.

It is scary to think that body images are so important in our society today. Plastic surgery has become more and more popular every year. Most people will do almost anything to fit American's standard of the "perfect body". Society pushes thoughts in their heads that to be recognized they have to be good looking. Good looking means plastic surgery. It is sad to say that most people are being judge from the outside. Young adults are being pressures to get the perfect body image so they can fit in with the rest of society. What happened to the inner-beauty?

When people get marry they take the vow of loving one another and never betray each other. Yet research shows that more and more spouses have broken their vows. Adultery shattered trust, intimacy, and self-esteem. It breaks up families and ruins careers. For the most part many who have affairs have a good sex life but come from marriages with little of no intimacy. When a spouse needs are not met many marriages tend to become more vulnerable and that is when adultery most likely to happen. It's sad to say but it is how the society is these days.

Through it was a terribly unpleasant time in my life; I came out of depression a better person and determined not to go back.

A date is when two people having fun together. Date rape is when you are forced to have sex against your will. Victims need to understand what date rape is. Many people think the greatest danger of rape comes from a stranger; a woman is much more likely to be raped by someone she knows. Women sometimes feel at guilt, thinking that they asked to be raped if they had too much to drink, went to the guy's room to talk, or getting into his car. But the fact is that doing those things is never asking to be raped.

I wonder what it takes to keep people together as boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife. It's hard to comprehend how people can argue but yet they still sleep on the same bed. I guess it's easy for a lot of people to forgive and forget. Sometimes I feel like I hold too much grudges on my boyfriend after an argument. I wouldn't talk to him, look at him, or even sleep on the same bed with him. It doesn't matter if he tries to make up, I would still ignore him. I wonder why I am this way.

In common law states marriage is a contract between a man and a woman to become husband and wife. Furthermore, the bible states that a marriage is between a man and a woman who love each other coming together to become one. Recently there has been a changed; there are more of same sex marriages. Same sex marriages are not the most suitable environment for raising children. These children can be hurt by people who are uncomfortable with a parent's sexual identity. They also have to grow up in a home with secret and shame which can damage them mentally.

Imagine you're sixteen years old, and you're sitting in the doctor's office. A nurse approaches you and tells you that you are pregnant. You start to cry and think of the alternatives. You call the doctor and schedule to have an abortion, not even knowing what it is. Abortion is not the answer in getting rid of your child. There are other ways of this baby being saved. You can give that life to live. You won't feel any guilt if you made that decision. You can help fulfill other women's dream, women that cannot have children of their own.

If you had a sixteen year old daughter and she got pregnant either by some stupid kid or, heaven forbid, she was raped, what would you do? Would you want her to drop out of school to raise that child? We all know abortion is wrong but what if abortion was illegal. Your daughter would be in the back ally with someone performing a gruesome procedure that could jeopardize her life. Abortion should be allowed if it is performed by a trained doctor before the 20th week of pregnancy to reduce the chance of the mother or fetus being injured.

Did you know that bats are the only mammal that can fly? Their wings are stretched out, covered by translucent but strong leather-like skin. There are over 1000 species of bats. They come in different sizes, shapes, colors, and habits. There are species of bats with six-foot wings spans and species of bats less than an inch in size. We learned this from a bat lady we met at The Fall Harvest Festival. She also told us bats are blind and they do not bite. Well, bats are not blind and they will bite if they found themselves in danger.

In today society true beauty has been categorized under outer appearance. But true beauty isn't all about physical traits a person has; true beauty lies within an individual. In my opinion there is internal and external beauty. Internal beauty is strength of one character and will, their ambition in life, their honesty, their truthfulness towards them and others, and their kindness. When external beauty is supported with internal beauty it makes a stronger statement of beauty. External beauty is not forever, but if combined with internal beauty the impact will last forever. Without achieving internal beauty, external beauty is meaningless.

Writing 100 words journal everyday for 30 days is not easy as is sound. There are many times that I stayed up late try to figure out what to write about. It's not easy to get things out of my head after 8 hours of work and 3 hours of school. Sometimes I feel discourage because I don't know what to write and how to make it fit in a 100 words. I wanted to quit so many times then I realized the finish line is only one week away; therefore it would be stupid of me not to finish.

As children we were taught that the truth is always the best plan and that lying will always get you into trouble. We have all been told the story about the boy who cried wolf, and we have probably cried wolf more than a couple of times ourselves. As adults, we all know that lying to our bosses, families, or to our friends will make things worse for us in the long run. Whether we are four or forty years old, telling the truth is something we know is right, even if lying sometimes seems like the easy way out.

Sexual harassment is one of the biggest problems today. It can happen to anyone. It is not limited to any specific gender, races, or ages. It can take many forms, including request for sexual favors, unwelcome sexual advances or other unwelcome verbal, physical, or visual conduct of a sexual nature made either explicitly or implicitly. This illegal conduct may occur in housing or public accommodation, training programs, hotels, restaurants, malls, and most often in the workplace. It is very important to know the policy and procedure of sexual harassment. It must be executed so it won't happen to anybody else.

The pain and tenderness behind forehead, cheeks, and around eyes are symptoms of sinus headache; which I experience very often. The pain is more intense in the morning and gets worse when I bend over. I've seen several doctors with this condition. All they did was put me on antibiotics and sometimes steroid to clear the infection. I'm also required to use nasal spray to reduce the inflammation but I refused to put anything up my nose so I have never used it. I wish there is something that can be done besides surgery to get rid of this disease.

Each day about 70 people receive an organ transplant, but another 16 people on the waiting list die because not enough organs are available. More than 80,000 people are waiting for organ transplants and 2200 are children. It is possible for a single donor to donate organs and tissues that may save as many as 60 lives. Transplantation saves lives, but only if you help. All you need to do is say yes on your organ donor card and/or driver's license and discuss your decision with your family. Please don't take your organs to heaven…heaven knows we needed them here.

What is greed? Greed is a selfish desire for more than one needs or deserves. It has made an honest man a murderer. It has a powerful influence on our lives and it affects the way we find our happiness. Whether you are rich or poor, greed can exist in all of us. Greed is not a goal, for there is no end to it. No matter how much the greedy have they always want more. Even though I think greed is a bad thing, I believe a person has the right to own as much stuff as he wants.
