BENT ON LOVE

Do you ever feel some times that you don’t measure up to someone else?

It is a ridiculous notion, but sometimes I feel it,

Like I will automatically say the wrong thing,

but no, I am me, and that’s all there should be to it.

If you need love, love. Need happiness? Bring it to others. Want to be rich? Share from what you have. Want Jannah? Do it all for Allah’s Pleasure.

Sevgiye ihtiyacın varsa, sev. Mutluluğa ihtiyacın varsa, başkalarını mutlu et. Zengin olmak istiyorsan, neyin varsa paylaş. Cenneti istiyorsan, Allah’ı memnun et.

Misfit Rendezvous

The Lonely Author

pieces of a broken heart

Misfit Rendezvous

Look at me I am a broken man
with a busted heart unglued
clinging to my fragmented parts
my warranty is no longer due
there you are a fractured woman
a hole has replaced your whole
you need a coronary jump start
or a sign that says damaged goods
we’d be a perfect imperfection
meeting on a misfit rendezvous
two interlocking jigsaw pieces
broken me and fractured you

The Calm Before the Light: Let’s Talk About Change

Wide Awake But Dreaming

Let’s get the Report From the Sickness Ward out of the way first thing:  I felt like I was dying last night.  Really, work was a blur, and while I managed to stay awake all day and not fall asleep at my computer, the walk home hurt.  I couldn’t relax, I could sit right, I couldn’t lay down.  I was stuff and coughing up a lot of fluids.  Not a good time at all.

If I were younger and a ginger and had a real bed, this might almost be me. If I were younger and a ginger and had a real bed, this might almost be me.

However, I did have a plan.  Everyone kept asking, “Are you going to see a doctor?” and the answer is always, no, they won’t do anything for you beyond telling you to rest and keep pounding down warm fluids.  So I stopped off to get some warm fluids:  specifically, a bottle of Rémy Martin VSOP cognac, which is my drink…

Around Downtown Chicago

mypassengerdiaries

We went to Chicago last fall. It rain half the time, leaving the city enclosed in fog. When the clouds cleared, the city skyline glittered like diamonds in the night. The leaves were gold and falling, leaving clumps on the ground large enough to fall into. We did just that, and so much more besides. One thing that I love about Chicago above all else is how walkable the city was. So we walked, a lot…and you should too.

TREASURE HUNT

One of the most memorable thing that we did while we were in Chicago was the treasure hunt. We had a friend who used to live in Chicago who challenged us. He told us to find the office where he used to work with only one clue…it was between Trump Tower and the Clock Tower, wherever that was. So we went around Miracle Mile photographing buildings until we got the…

Maybelline The Falsies Push-up Drama Mascara Review

Online Beauty Finds

Maybelline The Falsies Push-up Drama

Hello again!

Some of my favourite mascaras are by Maybelline and so I thought this one would match the others in performance but unfortunately this one fell short.

Maybelline The Falsies Push-up Drama Mascara

The brush has short, stubby rubber bristles that don’t hold much product. The brush makes it hard to separate the lashes and so an eyelash brush is needed during application. Regarding the “push-up” claim; I honestly didn’t notice it doing anything more than a regular mascara.

The formula is wet and does not layer well at all; it made my lashes stick together and clump up. The first layer gives me a bit of length but hardly any volume, which is very disappointing. This would be a good mascara for a natural look but I like to have both volume and length in a mascara and this lacks in both aspects. However, I found this to work well on my lower lashes…
