Edward Cullen 'Psychoanalysed'

Edward the famous teenage vampire... UNLEASHED! NOTE: I ACTUALLY DO LOVE TWILIGHT


We all at this point have seen and heard of Edward Cullen from the famous Twilight series by
Stephenie Meyer.
But in this article I Chanya Pepper will unleash the deep feelings of Edward glitter heart Pictures, Images and Photos


Edward died at a young age, a very traumatic death, which can lead to over protectiveness of his home, belongings and loved ones.
It took him almost 100 years to find his soul mate and when he did he longed to kill her and suck her blood. (Not a very good start to a relationship.)

Due to feelings of self disgust, Edward needs to play the hero and save the heroine, which makes him feel like a freak with supernatural powers when he saves Bella from practically jumping into a car.

‘Understanding Bella’ won’t give up on him. She too needs help as, with her parents divorced and her mother going out with a jocky (as if she was still in high school), Bella feels a deep need for love, even if it means going out with the depressed blood sucking hottie.

Edward wants to understand what he sees in this piece of love-needing-work so he approaches her...
After many painful, emotionally suppressed talks, he lures her into a hike in the forest where he finally discovers what he sees in her.

This is where he psychologically plays and toys with Bella’s brain with his scent, his cool car, hunky chest, and mouth watering lips.
With these four things he manages to
control her.

Then, when their dysfunctional love was at one of its many peaks, the Cullens meet their new neighbors, who just want to annoy Edward by killing Bella.

And again Edward has to save Bella, but this time his urges get too big and he nearly sucks her dry... To make up for this he takes her to the prom (secretly to annoy her) where he gets her hopes up for becoming like him and being young and pretty forever.

And so goes on Edward’s endless seduction techniques and Bella following him where ever he goes.
Until one night, at her
unwanted birthday party, his idiot brother decides ‘TO HELL WITH BAT FOOD, I WANT MEAT!!!’ aka he tries to eat Bella because of a bleeding paper cut.
This of course is Bella’s fault in Edward’s eyes, so he walks out on her the second she is lost in the woods and, suddenly alone and deserted, may well die of starvation and/or go mad.

To be.... CONTINUED!!!!

Your Diet and the Enviroment

We all get upset we see a car accident, or someone who is injured. We feel terrible when we see a dog or cat suffering, which I can fully relate to. So why would someone make fun of a vegitarian for not wanting to eat a dead body? It just annoys me...
If you don’t care about these animals, it is you that I cannot relate to.

Do you know how many farm animals are killed for meat per hour? ....THREE MILLION

That means that more than FIFTY FIVE BILLION are killed for meat each year.

The impact on our environment is terrifying!

1. Live stock are responsible for 18 % of global warming
2. 70% of the world’s fresh water is used to irrigate land, most of which is for growing feed for livestock
3. The US food system uses 450 billion gallons of oil every year to transport food - most of that is for transporting feed for livestock.
4. Waste from livestock can end up in your food. Here’s an example:

A child died from salmonella in peanut butter! (children have also died from eating spinach and other vegetables and fruit) contaminated by waste from livestock.

e.g.

Ingrediants of peanut butter

Peanuts
dextrose hydrogenated
vegtable oil (cotton seed and/or rapeseed) (GM and highly subsidized products)
and salt.


Where in that list does it say meat or eggs?
Where did the salmonella come from?
The truth is we don’t know what we are eating because of the way the food industry functions.
Even if we dont want it....
we get it.

And that includes me... and you

Dear Friends,

This is what is happening thanks to you!
First, a short account of what we experienced:

Camp-Perrin, January 12th, 2010, 4:53 pm:
Four of us from ORE still working at the office compound, looked at each other, trying to understand what was happening. I was on the phone with a visiting associate from MIT university. The floor was undulating under my chair, was rocking me back and forth... I looked at Eliassaint sitting across the table, to check and see if he was feeling what I was experiencing, and the realization came to both of us exactly the same moment: tremblement de terre! (it's an earth quake!) I immediately got up and run outside as I heard the person on the phone saying 'the earth is shaking!' and the line went dead. I was followed out by Eliassaint, and we both called Faubert and Benoit to come out. The undulating movement continued for several more seconds. When it stopped, we were all four standing there, looking at the building, still not knowing what to do next. Eventually we went back inside, and Ben went around looking for cracks. We described to each other what we felt, then we went back to doing whatever we had
been doing before. Meanwhile we could hear people in the vicinity talking loudly, everyone asking 'what was that'? Few minutes later, it started again. No hesitation this time to immediately run outside! Outside I started to feel my legs trembling, as if I had been running or overexerting myself. I just felt scared. Felt completely vulnerable, at the mercy of a force obeying its own will. And the words, my spiritual mantra, came by themselves rolling on in my head.

The second quake lasted less time than the first. Then we all became restless. Suddenly we began to wonder how everyone else was, if it was only a local thing. At that point I got a call from Patrick in Les Cayes, the closest town. He was asking: 'did you feel that, what is happening'? He said that he'd heard of one house destroyed in Les Cayes, and that there was serious damage in Port-au-Prince. So I immediately started to call people in Port-au-Prince, but none of the calls went through... Then I noticed on my laptop that the earthquake was a news item on Yahoo, just describing the magnitude and location of the epicenter. I couldn't believe that we had felt it so strongly when the center was in Port-au-Prince, 190 kms away!
I went to my house, which is just a short distance from the office compound. Only then did I realize that I hadn't thought to worry about my mother, who is bedridden, but who was in fact fine. After a while Benoit and Eliassaint came to look at the house and decided it was safe, no cracks from the quake.

I remembered that I could watch the news on CNN, and then it became clear that Port-au-Prince was very badly hit. We became frantic to reach anyone in Port-au-Prince, Eliassaint has all his kids there. No calls were going through.

At 10:58 pm (as recorded by cell phone) I received a call from Makil in Port-au-Prince: his words just made me grow cold. The house where I stay in Port-au-Prince, our office in Port-au-Prince, was down! He had just rushed out when the walls started to crumble, as he heard the crash of the neighbor's walls in our back yard. The houses to the left and right were down. An old lady was trapped in one of them, and her son (who had been standing outside) was being helped by neighbors to try and reach her. Makil, an ORE messenger, a faithful collaborator and friend, was out in the street where he intended to just stay for the night. He spoke of the destruction he had witnessed, telling me how many of the city's landmark buildings were destroyed: the Presidential Palace, the Sacré Coeur church, the Tax building, the local supermarket. These, he and his son, had seen with their own eyes. I could hear the sadness and the incomprehension in his voice. I wanted desperately to find out about all the people I know in Port-au-Prince. I felt helpless and frustrated. Then I got a call from my sister, Micky, who lives in Paris. She had just heard about it on the radio. I told her to watch it on TV, then she would understand. I reassured her that Camp-Perrin had been spared, explained Makil's plight.

During the next 24 hours I was just numb, in shock, searching for news, waiting to hear from friends, relatives. Then suddenly, realizing that we needed to be doing something to help. We were safe, we live in an area that had been spared! We have Internet and electricity and all around everyone was worried sick, trying to get news of their loved ones.
The plan for rescue started to take form: the idea of setting up a refugee camp, to try and get people out of the nightmare in Port-au-Prince. As we started planning, offers of help started flooding my email box, and it became clear that money would be available to provide the necessary logistics (tents, food, hygiene kits, water, clothing). Discussing it with the ORE team and other local groups, we realized that the first priority was to evacuate as many people as possible from Port-au-Prince, to get people originally from Camp-Perrin out of the city.

Every day now we have buses with more than a hundred evacuees. As the numbers of homeless people, without means and in need of medical assistance keeps rising, we are beginning the longer-term phase of providing shelter in available buildings, and when that is full we will be setting up a camp for vulnerable survivors who have no family and nowhere else to go to. While the evacuation process continues, we are using the funds which have been so generously provided to give homes and basic necessities to the homeless.
This is where we stand today -

Donations to date (18 January 2010):
Network for Good & Facebook: $11,969
Paypal: $6,264
Bank wire transfer: $10,000
Other (various) $2,150
Total: $30,383

The first evacuees arrived late at night on a truck from Port-au-Prince. Some were kids from Camp Perrin who were in schools in Port-au-Prince, other folks from Port-au-Prince with no where else to go. Everybody has been living in the streets since the quake. Their gratitude was
incredible. I have never seen Haitians so exuberant, hugging and hugging me. All day long the next day, people, school kids, are stopping by to thank us."

All your support is making such a difference to the lives of those helped. It is hard to imagine the happiness and relief of finally being helped to leave a nightmare of such enormous proportions.

Asking Someone out

Asking A Person Out

Asking a person out can be hard if you make it, especially if you really like them. But in my life I have had a couple boyfriends and every time I asked them out! (Mostly...) Guys are easy. Flirt a little, have fun, make sure he’s nice, but never ask him out when others are around, on your side nor his.

Now I admit these stories are a bit old, but they are from exactly when the boys decided girls didn’t have cooties after all and started asking me out. Here’s an example. One time I went to the park and was reading when suddenly a group of boys from school appeared. I was nice and tried to get them moving along so I could read. They went off for a while then laughed at me, throwing a few pebbles to get my attention. I tried to appear not to notice.

Then suddenly they came back and one of them, who’s name I won’t mention, came up to me, surrounded by his friends and asked me out in front of them. I didn’t know what to say! They looked at me waiting and I ended up turning him down. Even if I liked him how could I respond positively to a frontal attack like that? It doesn’t work, nor does it work to get a friend to ask your crush out.

But the
WORST that you could EVER do is to be a pervert about it. I was sitting waiting for a train with my class once when the class rebel, who’s name I wont mention, came up to me and asked, in a James Bond, sort of way.
“What do you do for fun?”
I replied
“I watch movie’s, read, fence, and spend time at home. That sort of thing.”
He looked puzzled
“So you don’t go out around the neighbourhood?”
“No I like my home and my friends homes better.”
“I have an idea, why don’t you come down to the park with me after school. I’ll show you some cool places.”
This boy had a reputation for running away from school, fist fights, bullying, etc. so I calmly said, “No thanks I have plans.”
“Fine it’s your loss.”
Which was fine with me or would have been if that was that. It’s what he did after that annoyed me. I turned to talk to my friend on my right and suddenly he grabbed my bum and squeezed it while smiling. I could have smacked him I was so angry! but I got up and moved away calmly. It was so creepy I will never forget it. The moral of the story is... if a boy is a creep... steer CLEAR of him.

I Love You in Different Languages

Here’s how to say ‘I love you’ in a lot of different languages. Kind of fun to memorise a few. A bit of Klingon? How about some Arabic? Or maybe just ‘Je t’aime’. Expand your romantic repertoire with a little bit of international vocabulary! Click Here To Read More...

Food Inc.



The information in this documentary is scary and true. The documentary follows the path of food from the ‘farm’ to your table. This documentary is only now available in the UK if you purchase it on Amazon through a seller in the US. Worth the trouble though. We have to take responsibility for the dietary choices we make and not rely upon corporate interests (which are always financial) to make those choices for us. You must see this documentary. Here’s the trailer.

Evolution of Beauty



Is this what you want to do every morning before school? Here is the demonstration of what goes into the magazine images of models that we all see, long to look like, and which make us feel inadequate about our own looks. This video is a must see for girls...and not a bad idea for boys either...although boys tend to be more forgiving (and appreciative) about our looks than we are.

The Girl Who Silenced The World For Five Minutes



A video that everyone should see and ponder. This kid (age 12) says it all to the United Nations in 6 1/2 minutes (not five). Watch and BE INSPIRED!!!!!!!!
