As a child I suffered pretty badly from acne. It was so bad that my dad took me to dermatologists to try and have them prescribe medication that would help, not understanding that ultimately the cause was puberty. Even still I do appreciate his concern and his desire to want to try and help but it honestly only made me feel worse about myself. I already didn’t think I was pretty enough and to have my dad pretty much reiterate it, hurt me worse than he probable knew.
Despite that I guess I have to be grateful that I didn’t suffer from blackheads and had to add a blackhead remover on top of everything else. I don’t think I would have been able to handle having to deal with two issues that I knew were a result of puberty on top of a dad who wanted to help but was only making things worse. As it stands I know longer suffer from the acne I had when I was a teenager. I still have breakouts ever now and again, usually when Aunt Flo comes knocking but for the most part they are minimal. Like I said, it was puberty.

As the future looms in front of us and Robby gets older, one of the aspects I worry about a lot given his family and medical history is his health. He doesn’t really eat as healthy as he should and he’s just recently started exercising again, but even still I don’t think he gets all the proper nutrition. I’m not really one to talk but I find that his health seems to take priority over mine because high blood pressure and high cholesterol run in his family.
It is because of this that I am thinking about encouraging him to consider looking into taking mens vitamins. Obviously this isn’t the cure all but at least it will help even if it’s just slightly. I know he’s more focused on his health now than he has been in the past few years so that’s a good thing but I think he also needs to focus not only on getting enough exercise but getting the proper nutrients as well. I am not disillusioned, I know that in the long run, barring accidents, etc he’s probably going to die before I do and it’s my mission to try and prolong that—I just hope I’m successful.

When it comes to finances, I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not expert. I don’t really pay attention to a lot of financial aspects like asset based lending, but I do know some important factors to focus on. Unfortunately, I didn’t really have anyone to guide me when I was younger and I’ll admit I didn’t really care too much to learn about what is and what isn’t important and as a result I have suffered for it. Despite that I still think it was a lesson that I needed to learn so that I could in turn impart my wisdom and experience into someone else.
That someone else is my little sister, who admittedly is nowhere near ready to take on the world. A large part of that is because my father babied her and didn’t allow her to grow up and see the world for what it actually is, but I’m glad that I’ll be able to impart my wisdom with her and help her to start her future on good footing. I really wish I had someone when I was younger to do the same. Instead I’m suffering the consequences and learning as I go. I suppose it could be worse, right?

I know I’ve been pretty slack in maintaining the site and a lot of that has to do with the fact that I’m just so exhausted now a days that I can’t find the energy to blog. I know it’s no excuse, but it’s really the best I have and I don’t think that my days are going to get any less busy… at least not until after the holidays and so I will try my best but I will not guarantee I’ll succeed.
Not only have I had issues keeping up with blog content, but I also find that I don’t really have the motivation to do any paid blogging in which I write about wrinkle eye cream. As it stands Halloween is just around the corner and instead of being excited like I normally am, I’m pretty much just blah. I don’t know what it is this year, but I just can’t seem to get into the season. As it stands I’m really not looking forward to any of the holidays which is odd for me. Who knows, maybe my mood will change and I’ll get a little more festive—but if I’m honest I’m not holding my breath.

Kennith Griffin tells his why his DVR systems are important to him…
There are times I wonder at how I ever survived without my DVR. Back in the Halcyon days of yore, which was last week, I was a slave to modern network broadcasting schedules. When I purchased my satellite TV package a DVR was offered in the bundle that I got at http://www.directstartv.com/directv_programming/directv_interactive_channels.html. I couldn’t refuse that offer considering it only cost a few more bucks. Anyway, it was an awesome choice because now not only can I watch hi definition digital television but I can also record it or rewind it even. I was shocked and excited at the same time!
When I was using rabbit ears and a converter box I was stuck watching the same channel over and over again. Reception at my house was terrible due to using a cheap antenna and the location itself. When I changed over though, everything came through crystal clear and I was able to see all the shows I had heard about but had been missing. It’s been great so far. I finally caught up on True Blood. Before I was stuck waiting for it to come out on DVD each season so I could see it all at once.
I never have to make a choice between what to see again, as well. It’s great! I can pause actual television and go to the bathroom, make some nachos, anything I need to do. I’m never going back to those rabbit ears again!

Those who know me, know that I’ve always been leery of diet pills. Even fda approved diet pills make me grimace because there is no guarantee that the user won’t suffer from future repercussions. I guess I’ve always been the skeptical type and have always followed the philosophy that if something can go wrong, it will go wrong. I know that’s a bit pessimistic of me, but I suppose it’s better to prepare for the worse, then suffer the consequence of being caught off guard. Though, if I’m honest, that viewpoint has a lot to do with the obstacles I’ve faced in my life.
Even still, obstacles aside, I still think the best way to lose weight is to do so naturally. It means your body is working with you toward a common goal and you won’t have to worry about pumping possible harmful chemicals into your body. For me I’d rather do the work the hard way then be forced to worry about what taking a short cut could cause me. Sure it might help you feel better about yourself faster and allow you to increase your quality of life, but at what cost? Until the unknowns are answered, I’ll be staying away from diet pills and I’ll make sure Robby does the same.
