Nothing in my life makes sense anymore. The things I thought I knew have been twisted, and the people I’ve known all my life seem to be turning against me. My own faith is being questioned, and now the danger I was warned about in the beginning is becoming a reality. I have to re-learn everything, and quickly. The only redemption in my sanity left is the little light growing inside me.

Introverts Don’t Quite Understand Extroverts, Either

Partying, taking pictures together, making friends with total strangers, bright, attention-getting colors, skinny-dipping–these are just a few things that make introverts want to scratch their heads (I should know!). At least 70% of the human population is extroverted–and, it makes complete sense. It’s our innate desire to connect with people, whether they are family or neighbors, that made us sprout into the population we have today (7-freaking-BILLION people).

So, as an introvert, we should take part in this ever-lasting party, right?

Right?…Guys? Where are you going!? Wait! Wait for me…!

The Beauty of Wicca

This has always been my favorite art-piece, depicting the universal, eternal love of Mother Goddess and Father God. Source

The following article goes into secular (religious) subjects that are particularly sensitive in nature. Only read further if you have an open mind to new ideas, faiths, and practices. I will not tolerate discrimination, hate-speeches, nor generalizations.

Kidist had hit rock-bottom–from her in-laws stealing money, food, and abusing her credit, her own family not taking her in, and a small child to take care of, she was at odds with the world.

With over 40 shares on Facebook and on DeGrathier combined, Kidist was able to get some funds for her time in need. She was surprised–she cannot tell you how grateful she is that people actually care, and are willing to help!

If you would like to make any further donations, click one of the links below, or just share her story! Again, thank you so much, and have a happy holiday!

Moana Review – The Soundtrack Makes Me Want To Cry

In an ancient world, Moana is a princess next in line to lead her village on the island. She longs to travel across the ocean, explore what lies there beyond the horizon. However, her family forbids it in fear for her safety, initiated by a tragic event that banned all boats as well as people from going near the water. When a curse reaches Moana’s island, she sets out to find the only one responsible for her villagers’ demise: Demigod Maui.

Out of 5 stars, this is a 4 out of 5 for sure. Without giving out spoilers, Moana has a detailed, emotional script, as well as an astounding soundtrack that Disney is known for. The main reason this did not get a full 5 stars was that some things within the movie left holes in the back-story. I feel that a deeper explanation would have made the movie more memorable in general.

Why Are Introverts So Mysterious To Extroverts?

It’s kind of like we’re viewed as aliens sent from another planet.

Obviously, we don’t interact with others much. We hardly say a word to anyone, and to someone who enjoys the company of others often, this puzzles extroverts. Are they antisocial? They might ask themselves. Do they have any friends? Why don’t they talk more? They don’t have to be shy. Why doesn’t she go out with us and have a good time? If I was stuck in the house all day, I’d go insane.

These are the questions I had to answer over and over as I was growing up and in socially-required environments such as family gatherings and job opportunities. I cannot tell you how many times I had to explain myself for something I simply do naturally–actually, I’m so caught up in my own world that I hardly notice that I’m not participating in the group or not interacting in general. If anything, I participate in conversations using my mind without realizing it and forget that I have to actually use my vocal cords.
