Just Thinking ;)

I was just wondering as to what should I blog about. I need traffic in my blog and actually everyone needs its nothing new.

I alway think, that I should write a story or novel..(whatever!) but the day never comes.

I get bored sitting at home as nothing is happening in my life except some volcanic eruptions.

Sometimes, I feel, I'm fed up with this life..sometimes I'm very positive.

My family says, that I'm full of negative energy and I want to get rid of this negative energy.

There's not a single day when my eyes are not wet (with tears of course!).

I don't want to be like this.

I want to be happy, I want to make others happy, then why am I not able to do that.

Really have to think of something..

Do you have something.. Please suggest.. Do comment..

My Sketches

I never used to sketch. I always used to paint. I always thought that sketching is not my cup of tea. But I was wrong, I went through several sites and videos for "How to...." and i got many tips, as to "How to..."

And finally, the day came when I actually sketched..

I want to share with you these sketches..(Mostly, the sketches which I'm going to post now, is of my family)

Hope you all like it.. I'm new to all these so...

92 Things I hate about Twilight (Oops)

I got this in a email and thought it was hilarious!!! But being honest , I LOVE the twilight series and I wouldn't even think of writing all this. This is just meant as some fun so don't get so worked up about it if some of this offends you which I'm sure it won't..


Being clumsy is not a flaw if Edward always catches her.

She can't do anything without Edward.

And when he leaves she attempts to commit suicide.

Meyer is living out her own fantasies by writing about Bella, who is clearly herself.

The books aren't well written, just because every other word is a fancy adjective doesn't make it good writing.

All the rules Meyer sets for being a vampire are broken by the end of the series.

Not only that, she breaks rules set by more esteemed authors.

The world population will come to an end because all girls who read this book will think they are Bella and will wait for their Edward to come until they are old. And he'll never come.

Bella almost dies fifty thousand times, but Edward always saves her. This is boring.

Edward is too perfect and has no flaws either. Even vampires should have flaws besides wanting to suck human blood because it's natural to them.

The reason the books became so popular is because Bella has no personality and any loser can put themselves in her shoes.

If Bella is so 'plain', why do so many guys fall for her within the first two chapters?

Bella teaches women to let the man handle everything, which pretty much is a huge step backward for women everywhere, who have fought for equality.

Isn't it convenient that her father always leaves her alone and doesn't question her? Real parents aren't that way.

Lack of character development.

Bella is a useless, whining, doll that suddenly has become the idol for girls everywhere.

People say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. Guess what? WRONG.

Edward is extremely possessive, border-line abusive, and boring as anything.
It's too cliché.

This book contains no real sex, so it's not really a vampire novel.

Read Anne Rice - those are vampires, not the girly men that Meyer has created.

You don't have to describe the character every two pages, we know all about Edward's 'perfectly toned chest' the fourth time she mentions it.

Bella reflects upon herself through the entire novel to tell important plot developments. Hey Meyer, ever heard of "Show, don't tell"?

She never uses the word fangs in the entire book series, and it's supposedly about vampire.

Her vampires sparkle. Enough said.

Supposedly Meyer never uses the word 'said' in the entire first book, instead using breath.

There is too much face touching.

It's predictable, and childish.

We read the entire series just to laugh at the stupidity of it.

Meyer can't think of original names. The only original name she used was Rennesme, which is combination of two names and doesn't count.

Vampires can't get people pregnant. SPOILER!

Vampire baseball was just a disgrace.

People think Meyer is the best writer ever.

The plot drags on forever, when it really could have been completed in two books.

Wow, yet another 'original' plot of forbidden love.

Why is it called the Twilight Series if only one book is titled Twilight?

It's too easy to mock. Go on Youtube, how many mocks on Twilight do you see?

They use a drug reference in a book written for ten-year-olds.

Stephanie Meyer creates some interesting characters ie: Jasper and Alice. She then ignores them, and gives them no development.

Every Other Facebook bumper sticker is about Twilight/Edward. EVERY OTHER ONE.

Fangirls are so blinded by their love for Edward that they don't realize the book is terrible.

Stephen King agrees that Stephanie Meyer can't write 'worth a darn'.

It's stupid.


Bella is Edward's beard.

Meyer wrote four books about nothing, really.

Straight men sparkle?

It's teeming with grammatical errors.

Bella Swan means beautiful swan, which is horribly cheesy.

Edward Cullen is sparkly; crows like sparkly things.

Do any guys actually like Twilight?

If the first 200 pages of your book rely on the mystery of a character's identity, don't slap "First, Edward was a vampire" on the back cover.

There's far too little actual conflict in the story. But this probably stems from having a flawless main character.

They fall in love way too quickly and it seems fake because no one falls in love instantly, especially teenagers.

They only love each other because she smells good and he's hot. There's no other given reason why.

It's just not healthy to teach young girls that True Love involves the guy watching you while you sleep.

Edward is HOT. We get it.

She had only been in Forks for a month when Edward had been watching her sleep for two months.

There's something disturbing about Carlisle turning only teenagers into vampires.

All Twilight fans are insane, proved by several responses to criticism such as...
"What is your name, address and phone number, just so that i can track you down ank kill You with my super awesom vampire powers THAT I AQUIRED FROM READING THE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!"

And this...
"do you WANT a cult of angry twilight luvers like mysef at your doorstep at night trying to behead you????? you shouldnt voice an absurd oppinion like this on the internet."

And this...
"you must have not read much good litterature in youre life, because if you cannot appreciate the quality of this art.....YOU ARE MENTALLY UNSOUND!!!!!!!"

Isn't funny how Twilight fans can't spell and use proper capitalization? By the way, 61, 62, and 63 are real quotes.

The reason Edward can't read Bella's mind is because she doesn't have one.

T. Pain would totally win Bella's heart and beat up Edward because he's on a boat.

Edward hits on the school faculty to get out of classes.

We applaud Stephanie Meyer, as she's got to be a rich woman by now, having found her forte in the insane cult of teenage girls who go rabid over her writings.

Vampires vs. werewolves (isn't that a Facebook application and such a original idea?)

This book was not worth the paper on which it was printed.

Bella has no goals and no future, her life revolves around Edward.

WWJTFD: What Would a Judgmental Twilight Fan Do? Answer: attempt to attack with the 'cool vampire powers' they gained from reading the series. Awesome!

Even if you like the book, it doesn't live up to its hype.

Edward is a good VILF, that's it.

"And I cried numerous times upon realising there would never be an Edward in this world." - quoted from Almuvira Anona on Yahoo Answers.

A hundred years difference = pedophile.

It's a co-dependent relationship stripped down to the bare essentials. Girl: "I can't live without you. I want to change myself to be with you." Boy: "If you leave me, I will kill myself."

Stephanie Meyer must really be into pedophilia: first Edward and Bella, now Jacob and Renesseme? SPOILER.

New hot couple name for Bella and Edward = Bedward

You may think Edward Cullen is smart and fast, but Chuck Norris could take him.

Bella's only deep thoughts are, 'Edward is so perfect. I love him.'

The only reason I kept reading was to see if Bella could redeem herself by getting over him.

Jacob, who didn't abuse Bella and was nice to her, was dumped and she chose Edward. Hmm, masochistic much?

Ms. Meyer writes the way I did when I was twelve years old, doodling in my journal.

"It would have been much better if Jacob and Edward discovered they were gay: no sequels, no whiny Bella. Amen to that."

Many people have enjoyed the making of this, many have helped with it other words lots of people hate Twilight.

You are allowed to have your own opinion, just like we are allowed to have ours. Get over it. Twilight fans don't seem to understand that though and attack at the mention of flaw in the book.

Light Yagami doesn't approve of Twilight so neither should you.

"Cause it's dumb." - Random Person on the Street

"It's annoying as hell." - Random Person on the Street #2

Martin Luther would not have not have approved if the book was written during his lifetime.

Harry Potter could beat Edward any day with his magic powers.

It's offensive to the entire human race, both male and female.

Do comment i would appreciate that... :)

The Correct Way To Drink Water

By Dr. Willie T. Ong

Our bodies are made up of mostly water. Just look at the facts: The brain contains 74% water, blood contains 83% water, lean muscle has 75% and bone has 22% water.. Experts agree that water is one of the most powerful forms of treatment. So how come most people don't drink enough water?

10 Health Benefits of Water:

1. Water prevents kidney stones. The most common cause of kidney stones is not drinking enough water. Since water dissolves the substances that form stones in the urine, drinking 12 glasses daily helps treat kidney stones.

2. Water treats urinary tract infection. The more water you drink, the more you will urinate. "Drinking lots of water will help flush out harmful bacteria from your bladder," says Medical City kidney specialist Dr. Roberto Tanchanco.

3. Water helps patients with diarrhea by preventing dehydration. As a first-aid for diarrhea, you can make your own oral rehydration solution at home. Mix a glass of water with 2 teaspoons sugar and ¼ teaspoon salt, and drink as much as you can tolerate. This is similar to the dextrose solution in the hospital.

4. Water helps reduce fever. For symptoms of flu, water can help lower your body temperature when you urinate the "heat" out of your body. If you're sick, drink more water for you to recover faster.

5. Water helps treat cough and colds, sore throat, and respiratory infections. Water helps loosen sticky phlegm. A respected lung specialist told me that some mucolytics out there are just as beneficial as drinking lots of water.

6. Water reduces heartburn. Taking 2-3 gulps of water every 20 minutes or so can help flush the stomach acid away. Bananas and water are effective alternatives to taking antacids. Try it.

7. Water prevents constipation and its complications. Too little water can harden the stools and lead to hemorrhoids and diverticulosis, a disease of the large bowel. Drink water and eat lots of vegetables to soften your stools.

8. Water keeps you alert and energetic. If you're dehydrated, your blood is literally thicker. This makes it harder for the blood to circulate. As a result, the brain can become less active and you can feel confused and fatigued. Some studies also show that water may help cure migraine headaches.

9. Water helps reduce weight. By drinking a glass or two of water before a meal, you will lessen the amount of food you can take in order to feel full. Water has zero calories and will not make you fat.

10. Water keeps your skin soft and radiant. Just as a dehydrated person will have deep-set eyes and wrinkled skin, so will a fully hydrated person exhibit a normal and beautiful skin tone.

The Correct Way To Drink Water:

1. Drink water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so drink a glass before you go to sleep, and another glass when you wake up. You are naturally thirsty or dehydrated in the morning. Drinking water in the morning helps flush out the toxins that have accumulated all night.

2. Drink 8 to 12 glasses a day. According to the Mayo Clinic, a 120-pound individual needs 8 cups of water a day, while a 190-pound person would require 12 cups daily. Dr. Robert Tanchanco says that we should monitor our urine color and keep it on the light side. However, drink only a maximum of 16 glasses a day, and not more.

3. Drink little by little throughout the day. It is preferable to sip water throughout the day rather than to drink two glasses all at once. This will lessen the stress on the heart (especially if you have heart disease) and give your body more time to absorb it.

4. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink water. By the time you feel thirsty, you're probably already 2 glasses below your normal water needs. Elderly people are also less sensitive to the body's need for water.

5. Drink water, not soft drinks, alcohol or coffee. Some experts believe that tea, sodas and coffee can be potentially dehydrating. Moreover, the high phosphorus and sugar content in cola drinks can lead to conditions like osteoporosis and diabetes. One study shows that adults who drank six cups of coffee daily experienced mild dehydration. Drinking alcohol is much worse because it actually dehydrates you by making you urinate a lot.

6. Train children to drink water. Set a good example to your kids and drink water together. Make sure that children drink enough water when they're active. Pack a large bottled water in their lunch box.

7. Drink more when it's hot. People living in hot climates like the Philippines need to drink more water. They are more prone to develop kidney stones compared to those living in cooler regions.

8. Drink more as you exercise. When you exercise, you need to drink more water to compensate for fluid loss. Go for an extra 500 ml of water for a 30-minute to 1-hour exercise. Eating a banana also helps keep your potassium up.

9. Drink more when you're sick. Even though you don't feel like it, you really need to drink more water to help your body recover from various infections. If you're dehydrated, you'll feel much worse.

10. Drink more if you're pregnant. Women who are expecting or breast-feeding need additional fluids to stay hydrated. The Institute of Medicine recommends that pregnant women drink 10 cups of fluids daily and women who breast-feed take in about 13 cups of fluids a day.
