A Short Story: Agatha's Love of Bugs

 I have gotten my idea from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, if any of you are familiar with that game.

Agatha sat in the middle of her flora green room, staring down onto the grass green shag rug beneath her. A line of marching ants crawled across the rug, wading through the blades of cotton, towards the window sill to Agatha's right. She stared at the ants with a frown and followed them, closing the window to imprison the ants, closing out all the warm, breezy air. Even with the path closed, the ants continued marching like little amoebas wandering around in disarray. Agatha tugged on her long blonde curls and grunted, crossing her arms across the chest of her floral, pink dress. "Why must you leave?" she asked the ants. "I only wanna be friends."

     Agatha waited and waited, hoping the ants would suddenly change their minds and stay, but as expected, they didn't. The ants kept trying to find their way out, kept marching in one long, straight line. Finally, Agatha reluctantly gave up and opened her window, shedding light in streaks across her room. Heat blasted through the window, followed by a gust of warm air. As the ants began to disappear, Agatha threw herself on her bed, tears tumbling down her face like a cascade.

     When Agatha's sadness finally exhausted her, she fell asleep face down on her pillow, clutching her teddy bear close to her heart. She soon turned over on her side, lids closed in innocent peace. On the window sill, the ants disappeared into the outside world, but one lonely ant sat looking back at Agatha. It waited till it was all alone and climbed back to where Agatha slept. Then, the ant began surging with a luminous aurora, glowing like a star in the murky night, and crawled up Agatha's nose.

Will be continued next Friday...


  1. I'm just about to head off to bed - what a nice bedtime story!

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 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…

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…
