Dahulu sekali, seseorang berkata pada saya, "Umurmu tidak panjang. Perbanyak bekal. Ingat Tuhan."
Tidak usah diingatkan. Saya tak pernah mau ingat Tuhan karena ingat mati. Saya ingin ingat Tuhan karena saya hidup.
Saya tidak tahu apa yang sebegitu menarik dari saya hingga banyak sekali yang mencoba meramalkan apa yang akan terjadi pada saya di masa depan. Atau sekedar mencari kata sebagai definisi atas diri saya. Entah itu kenalan lama, atau orang asing yang tak sengaja bertemu di gerbong kereta. Tak terhitung. Tapi coba tebak, tak satupun ramalan itu saya percaya. Tidak sekalipun.
Mau tahu kenapa? Sebab kamu bukan Tuhan, dan aku tak mau percaya Tuhanmu.
So... do you want to hear a story about the black ribbon God gave me once? Hold your breath and listen carefully.
"Our foster care journey began in 2010 when I saw an ad in our local paper looking for interim foster parents for newborns who were being adopted. I knew what being an interim foster parent meant because I had a good friend who had this very job. We prayed about it and I was relieved that my husband was totally on board!
I knew our house was such a safe haven and that I would love to care for babies who needed a home. I felt I had the time as I was a homeschooling mom to our then, 9-year-old biological son.
Fast forward a bit and we’ve been able to take care of 12 newborns during the interim period that the birth mother has to consider the choice of placing her baby for adoption. It has been a wonderful adventure! Only one of those newborns is with her birth mother now---the rest have been adopted. What a gift that most of the adoptive families stay in touch with us! We have intimately experienced all of the emotions of birth and adoptive parents, as we've seen grief and loss on both sides, elation and exhilaration as well. We are so happy to get to experience this side of foster care and adoption. There truly is nothing like a newborn!” -Shannon
Story time part deux. Another tale written (and illustrated this time!) by Scott Shields age 7.
One Fat Freaky Freak.
Once upon a freaky time, there was a freaky freak named Fatso. His name came after his grate grandfarther, Sir Fatso Fat, because he was a Prime Minister for 10,000 years.
One day, he found a grave and he thoght it was nice to live in so he bought it. The day after that, a man, a wife and a boy bought the house in the grave, but Fatso didn't minde because he could sckar them.
That night, Fatso went to the house and sckared the boy and the boy couldn't sleep the hole night. The next day, Fatso went to the woods to fined some food, and that's anemals. Then he found a fox and he ate it top to bottom.
After that day on, he kept sckaring the kids evevery night.
The next morning, Fatso wanted to be the boys friend, so he did after the boy knew that he wasn't dangres.
One day, Fatso went to school with the boy. Then everybudy got sckared and ran home. The next day, Fatso got sick and kept srowing up and the kid got sick to. The next day, Fatso had his birthday and the boy was only invited. Then the boy asked, "why didn't you invite anybody elth?" "Because I don't have any friends, only you." "Oh, that's why." The next day, these man came to there house and said "come out with you're hands up." And the boy's mother said, "what's this all about?" And the boy said, "I ges they now about my friend, Fatso the Monster." "Oh Fatso? But what's wrong with him?" "Oh nothing." And they all lived freacky ever after.
P.S. do you know what hapened to the men? They got put in jale.
||Story of the day. From Ting|| "Having lived in large globalized cities for most of my life, going to university in North Carolina
was a huge adjustment for me. First year of school rolled by fast, with all the nerves and excitement of getting used to a new environment still settling in. But when Sophomore year of university came, I realized I was no longer happy. Maybe because everything on campus was starting to feel same old same old; maybe because I chose the worst geographical location to study my major global studies; or maybe I just wanted to escape the feeling of “being stuck.” So what did I do? I chose to study abroad for not one, not two, but three whole semesters in Singapore and Hong Kong, and I can honestly say that despite the
stress that it caused for me academically, it was the best decision I have ever made.
In three semesters abroad, I expanded my world view, made friends from around the globe, and even changed the way I live as I started to have new priorities. Now, I can truly say that I am a global citizen. After I came back to North Carolina for my last semester of university, again the excitement of a new experience came back to me, and I started to fall in love with my school like never before. The lessonI’ve learned from this amazing experience is that whenever you are feeling frustrated with your current situation, know that you are not truly “stuck.” There’s always something you can do to change your currently situation, and you just have to have the willpower and courage to do so. After all, life is too short to be stuck in an unhappy place." #ArtInspires What is your story?
Taking advantage of an extra day off, went hunting for the Chikkajala Fort- the Fort that nobody cares about, but everybody claims belongs to them. Dated back to 1800, the Fort is in ruins, quite literally. The map showed the location but we had to take 2 rounds to figure out where to get in from before we realised, there is no proper entry. So we jumped through some vegetation from the side of the highway praying a huge snake doesn't lie in wait and entered. Most parts of the Fort cannot be accessed, thanks to crumbling walls and wild growth of plants except the temple which seemed to be still in use. (Nothing moves us into action like Religion) We don't really deserve our history and no bigger proof that this Fort's ruins. A part of it was razed to make way for the highway leading to BIAL and the rest, well nobody bothered.
Pictures from first to last- Stairwell leading to what I assume would have been a pond, Hanuman Temple, pillars of a hall/durbar maybe, me- looking for a story.
Kovering Kae: Karrueche Tran kept in hiding during Chris Brown's BET Awards performance

KEEP THAT DISTANCE.. ----------------------------------------- .
If Chris Brown was plotting on sneakily dancing around the space limitations a judge recently handed him pertaining to his ex-bae, Karrueche Tran, at Sunday evening's BET Awards...the happy-footed singer's plans were foiled AF by the event's producers who reportedly took extra measures to keep the former lovers away from one another... ----------------------------------------- .
While black America stopped and stared as the 28-year-old "Privacy" harmonizer slayed the stage at the Hip-Hop based cable network's annual awards ceremony, the Virginia native's "Claws" starring ex-girlfriend, according to TMZ, was moved to a holding room to ensure he'd never get within 100 yards of her-- per the terms of the five year restraining order she was recently granted against the embattled musician... ----------------------------------------- .
Insiders claim Kae, who was reportedly asked well in advance by BET to serve as a presenter during the awards show in effort promote her new TNT series, remained in private quarters throughout her "Welcome To My Life" starring ex's performance and didn't watch his ...[#Read Full #Story via #Link in #Bio and visit www.Cheekywiki.com for more] .

I love this photo of him. He makes me very happy I honestly don't think I would be as good as I am today. We've only been dating for a few months but I can't wait till months turn into years. I want him in my future and I'm getting better for him not for my sake. If he wasn't around I would see no point in getting better, I'm scared I'll fall back down again. I've been struggling I don't like eating but I do because I don't want him to worry I try not to selfharm and when I do I don't post it much. I've selfharmed with out posting it during the last few weeks. It's a slip up I know. But with him it makes me feel like I can make it. Right now I want to cut, I wanna go in the shower slice my skin open. It's so tempting for me but I really am trying because I want to be able to grow old with him.

Dear fuck why is the image so saturated ;-; but yeh here's the cover for a story I wrote and am currently in the process of re-writing. It's about how Raizer came to live in the Pages and how he met Animal Train.
~Sher because of Zen~
Ini balasan surat Zen yang mengatas namakan dirinya Alfano. Gara2 kasian liat Sher yang mengirimi surat pada Alfano berkali kali tapi nggk pernah di bales.
Emang sih, cowok cool kaya Alfano banyak yang ngefans. Locker no.12 punya Alfano terlalu banyak surat dari para penggemarnya, jadi dia nggk pernah punya waktu untuk membalas satu persatu.
Dengan inisiatif sendiri, Zen menulis balasan surat itu tanpa ada yang tahu. Hanya untuk satu tujuan, Zen ingin sahabatnya bahagia dan selalu tersenyum selama ia masih punya harapan pada Alfano.
Everything that dies
Soon fades away,
Memories aren't always
Here to stay, oh no. •
It's like we've always
Been trained, yes,
To follow our dreams-
Yet Society is ruling now,
We must bow down,
Throw away our dreamstate,
Give away to Society's pain. •
Clouds are too high up,
Yet by their stormy presence
They are infected with the
Rules, oh, yes.
Where are we to stay
When we're running away...
Spinning and spinning,
Goes our state,
We're falling down to Hell, yes,
Oh, why won't you catch us
In our wake? •
We're of your own people
Yet we're told where to stay,
Colour of our skins are judged,
Even our mental state. •
Even the girl who seems
To have it all,
Money - family - good mental state... •
S e e m s . •
Inside she's withering,
Allowing Society to take control, yes,
She has hidden scarrs,
Both mental and physical,
Look at her thighs, Society,
Come see where your blade has landed,
Its mark burried and scarred over
You've broken her, unknowingly,
Because she smiles and says she's okay,
Look what you've done!
Where are we to stay
When you're a monster, oh Society,
When will you change

-" She will be okay." Isaac whispered in Mila's ear giving her a tug. Mila stopped peering at Estelle from the corner of her eye. She skated along side side him, sneaking one last look at Estelle. She sat on the bench her eyes distant. Ehran's sister Adaline filled Mila in on what had happened.
-"I just worry about her." Mila spoke softly looking up at Isaac. He held out his hand and she slid hers into his. .
-"of course you do, that's your sister." Isaac looked back over at Estelle. "But, she is a lot stronger than you think Mila. I mean she made it here with us. She just has a lot to think about." .
Mila nodded and looked back at her sister one last time. " You're right." She spoke turning back to him. Stella was tougher then they had thought. But something about all this itched at Mila's mind. Mila wondered if Nina was the one who had found him? Or maybe the one who had even captured him in the first place. The thought sent shivers down her spine.
But only time would tell, right now Mila had only a few months left of summer before her senior year started and she was ready to feel like a kid again. She wanted to spend more time with Isaac too. She felt like she had neglected them this whole summer.
-" Hey!" Isaac yelled tickling Mila's side. "Enough worrying baby doll." He kissed her head and swooped her up. Mila's let out a tiny shriek before laughing. .
Everything was going to be okay, time would heal these wounds on her family as it always had. Mila looked up at Isaac, Mila was lucky she had him and she knew it. .
Letting go of all her worries, Mila finally felt free.

☆ Cinta Pelangi ☆
Tuhan, masih ku ingat dari suatu masa
Pelangi adalah keindahan abadi
Dia hadir untuk menjawab kerinduan
Yang berulang kali tak kutemukan
Dari semua makhluk yang pernah ku temui.
Meski sejenak pelangi pernah pergi karena kehendak-Mu,
Aku tahu, dia pasti kembali lewat celah waktu.
Dengan kehendak-Mu, jantungku berdetak kala bertemu pelangi lagi.
Seperti nyanyian yang selalu dilantunkan, untuk menyampaikan rasa yang tak bertepi.
Tuhan, aku yakin dengan petunjuk-Mu
Lewat bahasa yang sakral, aku sudah bersama kekasih surga-Mu
Engkau tak pernah ingkar janji, seperti pelangi-Mu yang senantiasa membentangkan kebahagiaan yang berwarna.
Tuhan, izinkan aku menyampaikan ungkapan jiwa :
Pelangi, sebuah nama yang berada di kedalaman makna.
Segala kisah berbaris di sepanjang mata memandang.
Gelisah, sedih, tawa, dan senyum terkubur di semesta.
Dalam kisah setelah hujan, pelangi melukis keindahan.
Tuhan, Dari Maha Cinta, Aku Mengenal Cinta.
