She lost herself within the man that she thought she was going to marry. She lost herself after the weeks of not eating after seeing the man of her dreams walk out of her life, she lost herself everyday after he left thinking about him, torturing her mind. She lost herself when she was left to continue life alone, without the person she thought would carry her through life. Don’t tell me anything about Miley Cyrus, when you don’t know what she’s going through or how she feels. Because none of us do. I don’t know and I’m just assuming. But for you all to judge someone so quickly just by the way she’s acting, doesn’t mean she’s a ‘slut’ or a ‘whore’ or is on drugs. Maybe she’s hurting, maybe she’s asking for help in all the wrong ways. Maybe she’s so desperate for Liam to love her again that she’s making a fool of herself. I’m not saying what she is doing recently is okay, because it’s not and that’s sad. But I’m just asking for you all to think deeper, before you even question her. “Wrecking ball” is so fucking emotional, it makes you forget she ever did anything inappropriate.. I will always love Miley Cyrus. I will never stop being her fan and if she needed a hand up back to reality and onto her feet. I wouldn’t say no.
This makes me completely reevaluate my opinion of her.
This week, the last stockpiles of wheat imported from The United States will be used here in Japan.
While some might think of this as a cause for alarm for Japan, contrarily, this is something that every American should know about.
Japan, a country with a nuclear power plant leaking radiation into the environment… has deemed that wheat, among other imports from the United States are too heavily contaminated by pesticides and genetic modification to meet objective quality standards for human consumption. The government report calls out Monsanto by name as one of the chief perpetrators of the contamination of American exports.
Furthermore, the combination of chemicals found in a typical American meal did not meet the quality standards for domestic animal consumption in Japan either, so these products cannot even be imported to make dog food.
In LA, I always looked at the Organic food junkies with a weary eye, but given that the ingredients in a typical American meal do not meet the quality standards of DOG FOOD in other countries, I think it is seriously time for people to wake up to the issue.

We all know one (or many) of those girls who seem to bring their sob story with them everywhere they go. They’re constantly looking for sympathy from other people about how their life is so hard and they can never seem to catch a break. We listen to them cry about how they’re always the victim, and anything bad that happens is never their fault. Well of course you don’t want to be (and hopefully aren’t) that girl. That girl needs to be shipped to her own island with a box of tissues and some self-help books.
Now, let’s talk about another girl that you don’t need to be. This girl is the one who goes through life looking for sympathy, not from other people, but from herself. She looks at the amazing things that other people have done and let’s out a sigh as she wishes that she could be that talented, motivated, etc.. This is the girl who just is. She takes what’s given to her, she doesn’t ask questions. She doesn’t want to get in anyone’s way. If this girl could be described as a color, that color would be beige. And not even the beige that can look good when paired with other colors. This is the beige that has absolutely nothing to contribute to any color palette whatsoever. This girl whom you do not want to be is the one who does what’s absolutely necessary, and nothing more. Dreaming is just something this girl does at night. This is the girl who will look back on her life when she’s an old lady sitting in her beige living room and wish that she could have gone on at least one adventure.
Ok, so now that we’ve established who that banal girl is, let’s talk about why you are not that girl. You are not that girl, because you decide not to be that girl. You have dreams, and every day you make the choice to work your cute little butt off to achieve those dreams. You are not that girl, because you know that you can do anything you want to. No one needs to give you permission to be happy. No one needs to hand you the opportunity. You are not going to sit around and wait to be affected. You are going to go out and affect the world. Because, darling, you are not that girl.
