New Goal: Eating Better

I have a new goal for myself. Well, actually, it's not really a new goal. It's a goal I've been too lazy to take on. And that's for getting myself to eat better. Meaning more whole foods, less dairy and processed junk.

I can visualize the whole process. It seems so easy. Until the new day comes, and I still haven't completed my goal.

I mean, it's hard when I don't have my own place, so I'm tempted with taking the easy way out. Plus our fridge is too full, so I just get angry when I look inside. If I had my own place, with all my own vegan food, I could totally accomplish being a vegan and gaining weight.

It's not impossible. It's just difficult when I'm stuck in depression. Yeah, it's not an excuse for poor eating, but my mental state is just wonky. Cause every single time I try, something always goes wrong.

Like for today, I tried to make myself some lentil baked beans (completely vegan). I followed the instructions and everything, and it turned out too dry. Then, I tried making myself an applie pie jam in a cup. Recipe found here:

As I kept test tasting it throughout the process, something seemed off. I couldn't figure out what until I realized my chia seeds were rancid.

Totally depressing as hell.

It's like fate keeps telling me to eff off. Cause everytime I try to do something good for myself, it goes completely wrong.

Just like life. I can do everything right. I don't do drugs, drink, or any of that crap. I'm trying my hardest to make the best of my (future) author career. I've never had it easy. My family isn't wealthy. I wasn't give a car. I have to earn my own money as a teenager. But somehow all the snot nose brats get off better than me. I mean, yeah, I don't care that I have to earn my own car and have a job. It's making me a better person. But when zero things in my life go right, and when those type of kids have everything go right, I just want to give up.

It makes me feel like I'm not meant to be happy. That I'm not meant to be an author. Something I so desperately want more than anything in this entire world.

It's just not fair. And that's how my depression works. I just don't see the light anymore. It's like God said eff you, you don't deserve anything. When I haven't even done anything wrong! I've tried my hardest to do everything right, and this is how I get paid back.

I just wish for once that something in life would turn out right. Just something. Anything.

For right now, I just feel like I have no reason to be here because life won't let me have a reason.

*Rant Over*

On a good note, though, I wrote 2k words today for my sequel to my young adult paranormal romance. Which now totals 28k words. Finally. It's taking me a while to complete this, but I won't give up.

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…
