Irks me.

Do you know what irks me most? Of course you don't, you barely know me. Well...when people read the very last page of a book before they read the rest irks me more than when someone leaves the toilet seat up. Why do people do this? Seriously, why? That ruins the whole dramatic effect of the ending. Yeah yeah, I know. You say you just can't wait or it helps you decide whether it will suck or not. Well stop making excuses! What do you think the first page is even there for? I didn't write the first page in my book for nothing. I want readers to get hooked right from the start not the end. I have twists and turns closest to the end. Why on Earth would you ruin that for yourself?

But seriously, the first page of a book can tell you a lot about the story. It gives you a sense of the author's ability to write or whether this book is the type your going to like. If I'm not hooked on that first page, for God's sake even the first line, then I'm definitely not reading the rest. But reading the last page? I just want to rip my own hair out at that. My very last page of my book is something I want readers to be surprised at and not know from the very beginning. I mean, if I really wanted you to read it first, I'd have put it as the first page. Just think about all those people ruining the suspense, well for themselves that is. That would be like reading the last page of the last book of a series. Why read it then if you already know what's going to happen?

I found out yesterday that my friend reads the very last paragraph of the books they read. I asked them why, but they couldn't give a clear enough answer. They said it doesn't even give away anything. Well, then what's the point? It takes all the fun out of turning each page and feeling accomplished when you hit that final one. Do these people just hate suspense? Because I'm sorry, but that's what books and movies are all about. I just feel that reading the last page ruins the book.

Is there something I just don't understand? If so, explain it to me.

And I hate it when people spoil books for others. Your just ruining it for the other person. How would you feel if someone told you that so and so died or that so and so is the killer in your favorite series? Someone did this to me a few years ago when I read Twilight, and I was so peeved about it (although I could really care less now since I've moved on from Twilight, if you know what I mean.). So to get back at this girl, my friends and I told her the ending to The City of Bones. She was pissed! I was happy because then she knew how it felt. Serves her right!

I think I'm done. I might post a poem dedicated to my novel tomorrow, so I hope you'll stop by and read it!

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
