How do Homeless Women Deal with Periods?

I’ve always asked myself this question. What do they do? Do they ask around for pads or tampons? Do they use something else? Do people help them?

So, I decided to go on the great and all mighty YouTube and search it up. Gladly, I found a video and my question found an answer.

The problem now is that, it made me feel both sad and angry at the situation. It’s hard for these women living on the streets.

The video I found was done by the channel Bustle. It interviews multiple women in New York City, USA. It is sad to see these women are worried every month because their cycle is coming or it has arrived. It’s amazing how something that women need is so hard to get for these women. Women need these feminine hygiene products every month to keep clean and to in a way “control” the bleeding. No folks, menstruation isn’t something that we can stop, it isn’t something we can decide whether or not it should happen. It’s a thing that we just do because it’s our nature and it demands to be done every month. But through these products, we can keep it under control until it’s gone.

It’s sad to know that, there are places where you can get condoms for free but not pads nor tampons.

Now, you tell me:

What’s really a necessity? A condom, or a tampon?

I understand that condoms are great to avoid STD’s and pregnancies especially in homeless people, but…I don’t know.

Seems kinda unfair in a way?

Like, a condom isn’t really something you MUST have, it isn’t a necessary object like toilet paper or toothpaste. Meanwhile, a pad or a tampon, is something that a woman needs to take care of period blood from getting everywhere or avoiding smells or infections.

These women have been really creative using things such as t-shirts, socks and toilet paper/napkins as sanitary pads. It isn’t always the greatest option though. Like mentioned in the video, these women are exposing themselves to infections. It isn’t as clean, it isn’t as sanitary to use these items instead of actual pads or tampons, but what else can they do? What other options can they get?

I know that there are such things as Dollar Stores where they can find the things that they need and I know that in some places there is help for these women such as homeless shelters that can provide them with what they need, and some public restrooms even carry them. But I guess that every situation is different. I guess that not all of them can afford to buy from a dollar store, who knows how much they make. Some may not have access to homeless shelters, either.

But wherever these women are, may they find help. Ladies, if you see a homeless woman on the streets and she needs a pad or tampon, don’t hesitate. Give them one. I’m sure most women carry one around and if not, help them out with buying a box for them. Imagine if you were in their situation, you would want help, no?

Appreciate what you have because there are women out there who cannot have it and have it hard during those days of the month. Always appreciate and remember to always have a helping hand. We girls gotta help each other out.

But remember: we all have to help out one another no matter genders in the end. We just have to see each other as human beings, and nothing else. If you see a homeless person either man or woman, give them a helping hand. They will appreciate it. And don’t judge them just because they’re on the streets. Don’t instantly assume they’re alcoholics or druggies, they all have a different story.

Just like we each have our life story, so do they.

Just a slightly more different. 😛

What do you think?

Do Subliminal Audios Really Change Your Body?

Subliminal audios can be found on YouTube by just looking them up. If you want to grow your hair, lose weight or change your eye color, just listen to them for 10 minutes.

That’s right- today we’re gonna talk about subliminal audios that change you completely.

What are subliminal audios?

So far, from what I have picked up, they are songs (or noises) with affirmations playing lowly under the music/noise. Affirmations are a series of phrases being said at the same time that say positive things about what you want to change so that your subconscious can pick them up and start to believe them, leading to your body doing as requested.

For example, if you want to change your eye color from brown to grey, the affirmations that will be playing under the music can say:

  • My eyes are grey
  • My eyes are beautiful
  • My eyes are changing
  • etc.

Now, you cannot hear the affirmations, which is why music is placed over the affirmations. The reason you cannot hear them is so that your subconscious accepts the affirmations, which is why music is played over them, so it can trick your mind into thinking that all you’re listening to is music when in reality- you’re listening to a bunch of phrases that will benefit you. In other words, these affirmations are convincing your mind that they are true to the point in which changes actually start to happen.

Now, there is a huge haul of these audios for everyone’s needs. From losing weight, changing your eye color, getting a deeper voice, getting smarter, getting a better memory, growing longer hair, getting a prettier nose, bigger lips, thinner lips, you name it, there is a subliminal for it.

Of course, there are testimonies for all of this, for example, this one:

This is the video that introduced me to the world of subliminal audios. Now, I would never try a subliminal for changing my eye color, but what I have tried is:

Hair growth.

And guess what? It did grow. My hair grew after listening to this one subliminal audio for about a week. Now, I don’t have pictures for it because I was just doing it out of straight curiosity BUT I am willing to go on and track my progress in my hair growth after listening to these audios.

Do they work then? According to comment sections, yes they do if you believe that they will work and to keep in mind that some people may get results slower than others. Some may get results in months while others in weeks and some in days.

Basically, keep your hopes up.

Also, you gotta stick to it. You gotta listen to these audios as much as you can and stay consistent with them.

So, what are y’all thoughts on all of this? Skeptical? Possible?

I in the personal do know that we have the power to transform everything in our surrounding, so why not interpret that as our mind having the power to transform us into what we desire?

Do you think I’m crazy or would you also try this out?

In the end, remember that us as humans, don’t understand how our minds work to the fullest. There are still things about humans that science cannot explain, and may never be able to. I think it’s good to open up to new things, to new possibilities. Even if we don’t believe, it is still good to explore, ya know? Learn something new and interesting.

I hope that this post was that something new and interesting that you learned today. 🙂

Thank you for reading.

Working at a Cyber Cafe- For Free

I’m home! From where? From work! How much do you earn? $0!

Whaat?

Yes, that’s right-I’m currently working at a cyber cafe 2 blocks away from my house because of school reasons. So, I am soon to graduate from high school with a bachelor’s degree in programming, but before graduating I must present something called: Professional Practices. This is basically to gain work experience in the field in which I’m developing, in my case- computer work.

This means that I must work for free. Of course, if the owners of the cafe want to pay me, they can pay me.

But they don’t.

But I can: Print stuff for free, get free copies in the copy machine and some free school items such as pencils, pens, erasers, whatever.

So, uh, yeah. That’s what I’m up to. :p

Bye!

How Can I Decide What Career is Best For Me?

Are you soon to enter college, and don’t know what to study? No probs! Here’s some advice for ya to think about! 🙂

So, I’m a few months away from my university admission exam, and I have already started to prepare. Now, I already know what career I’m going for, and didn’t struggle much to decide on it. I’m going for Computer System’s Engineering. Of course, when I was younger I wanted to be many things, but I have a love for technology and electronics, specially in programming and related things.

But how did I decide?

How can I decide what I want?

Here’s how:

First off: Make a list of your priorities, abilities, disabilities, fears. This will help determine what you’re good at, what you’re not good at, what worries you and what you consider important. This list will help you later on.

Now, after you’ve made your list, time to move onto the next steps.

1.- Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What do I like?
  2. What do I like to do?
  3. Am I good at it?
  4. Do I enjoy it?
  5. What are my favorite school subjects?
  6. What are my least favorite school subjects?

Now, asking yourself these questions, answer them in the most honest way. It is YOU who is asking these questions, and it is YOU who is answering them. Take your time, think about it, and write down your answers.

2.- Based on your results, ask yourself the following:

  1. What careers are involved with what I like?
  2. What careers are involved with what I like to do?
  3. What other career options would I like?

According to your answers, investigate! Go onto Google and search up careers that are involved with what you like the most. Read about them, and if you like one, search more and more for it. If you don’t like any of your options and prefer something else, for example: You love to draw but you would like to be a Scientist, look it up! Don’t be afraid to explore an area that you’ve never visited before. Not knowing anything about something doesn’t mean that you’ll fail and won’t enjoy it.

3.- Consider this:

  1. What universities offer what I want?
  2. Are they public or private?
  3. How far are they?

This is the next step after you have decided what career choice you want. Or, if you’re still indecisive, pick out  your three main options and look them up, find out where you can study them, what they consist of, etc.

4.- Now, consider:

  1. Is it worth my time?
  2. Is it worth my efforts?
  3. Will it pay?

Something important to consider: Is your career option ideal for your standards? Will it fulfill your wants, needs, and much more in the future?

5.- LASTLY but MOST Importantly, ask yourself the following:

  1. Am I capable?
  2. Do I have the right attitude?
  3. Am I responsible enough?
  4. Can I make myself a better person?
  5. Do I have the will and strength to keep going?

This is where YOU must THINK correctly and reflect about yourself. Please remember, that if you WANT to do something, if you do it, you will succeed in it. You DO NOT need to have specific knowledge for something that is totally new to you, that’s why it’s new, isn’t it? If you truly want something, fight for it. Get rid of old habits that are putting you off and replace them with good habits instead. Put in all of your work, time and effort into it and you will succeed. 🙂

Just like Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.

After you’ve done all this, make a conclusion. You can write it down if you’d like. Take your time with this. Write down what your career option(s) is/are and your thoughts on it, maybe some of the research you did too. Simply, conclude.

Now, if any of this doesn’t help, consider taking career tests online, such as:

https://www.123test.com/career-test/ 

They are very easy and take no time at all. Well, no longer than 10 minutes. There are many more career tests out there online, who judge you based on your personality, abilities, likes and dislikes.

I hope this helps you or anyone you know who is uncertain on what to do. Remember that you do not need a career to be someone in life. We are all important in our own ways. You don’t need to go to college to make your family proud, as they will always be proud of you, or should be. If they’re not, they’ll be one day. Remember that you don’t need a fancy job to be taken seriously, a work in retail, at a restaurant, etc. is a job filled with responsibilities and dignity.

Be proud of yourself, motivate yourself, and keep on going forward to reach what you want the most in life. It is your life, not your families, nor your friends life. YOU decide for yourself, no one else does.

Stay happy. 🙂

New Semester, Last Semester

I’m on my last semester of high school now! 6th semester, graduating as a mathematician and with a bachelor’s degree in programming in July, woot! College, here I come! But first….

Gotta deal with this last semester, aye?

So sorry for not posting in such a long time, but here I am again! I still got math homework to do but, I’ll write first. Now, all of my teachers are great, but there is this one specific teacher that kinda bothers me.

Now, I already had this teacher when I was in 1st semester, and I tolerated him through the whooole semester and after him I felt such a relief. Well, if I already tolerated him for one whole semester, I can do so again. Ya see, the thing is, this is the type of teacher that likes to:

Ridicule

Make fun of the students

Pressure us

And that scares me in a way. I don’t want to be ridiculed by him, he literally has no chill towards anyone. But, he already tried to do it once, er, three times actually, and this won’t be an exception. No it won’t. I’ve always been a strong gal and I will get through it once more. 🙂

Oh, and also, during my first week of school I got hit in the face with a soccer ball.

Okay, that’s it for now. Cya!

 

Top 3- Week 1.

So, why not post music? Alright, so this is a new little thing I’ll be doing where I share the top 3 songs that I’ve been listening to this week.  Hope you enjoy!

Now, I love a different variety of music. From Lady Gaga to Slipknot, I’ve got a taste for a little bit of everything. This week though, was about all those snazzy beats.

1.- Flume- Never Be Like You feat. Kai

 

2.- Møme – Aloha (Official Music Video) ft. Merryn Jeann

 

3.- Tash Sultana- Jungle

 

I like a good song with great beats, vocals, everything. It’s even better if I can dance to them.

So, um, yeah that’s it. Enjoy!

I want to be Happy

Yup, I’m unhappy. I’ve been like it for a veeery long time. It’s hard for me emotionally always. I sometimes feel great about everything but the next day no more. I’m a normal gal, I go to a great school, I’m very social, I’m a high achiever. But, I want to do something more like I have already mentioned previously in some other post.

And you know what? I will. I said I would but I haven’t done shit and it’s just lowering me every day even more and more.

I want to finally do things that I’ve always wanted to do. I want to do things without anybody telling me what to do. I want to do things on my own, with my own permission. I will need help of course and I will ask for it, and I know exactly who can help me.

I just can’t believe it. I’ve had the right people here to always help me and I know they will so, why not just start and do it all?

I want to grow, I want to fulfill myself and others. I want to in general, feel and be happy.

It’s always been one of my ambitions anyways. I’ve always wanted to feel that accomplishment and I will feel it and I will keep it with me.

So uh yeah that’s it really. I just felt like saying all this ‘cuz I’ve been feeling very very down lately. Writing things down has always helped me so I chose to write this post, even though I already wrote a whole complete paragraph on my notebook on what I want to do. It’s always so hard for me to open up about how I feel.

Oh wellz.

Anyways….what will I do you wonder?

Wait for it.

Bye. 🙂
