I've spent a year now with my kindle fire and I have to say, it's just not for me. Now, don't get me wrong, it's a great tablet and is nice for taking a lot of reading material to places where it would otherwise be unreasonable, but the feeling just isn't there. I realize I might be being a bit sentimental but I get attached to my books. Each one has memories and it's just not the same with a digital file on a computer screen. Another thing is that nothing beats looking at your bookshelf and knowing that, as long as you take care of them, those books will be with you for a very long time. Your favorite books could last so long that your children, or even your grandchildren, could pick them up.

It's been a year and a half since I quit smoking and I miss it every day. Waking up in the morning, pouring a hot cup of coffee, stepping outside to my deck, lighting a cigarette, and enjoying the sun. Those were the days...

It's a shame they're so bad for you.

Family, friends, a good story to get away. I know how you feel though. Right now I'm 21 years old and am a shift manager at a retail store. I've been working 35 hours a week and saving up the little bit that I can but my co-worker is coming back from college so I'll probably get my hours cut in half. After that I'm probably going to join the military unless some kind of miracle happens. I live with my family and all together there are 8 of us. We rent a small house and all pitch in to keep it running smoothly. My Dad has been in and out of jobs (he can only find contract work) so that's been tough on all of us.

I try to keep positive by looking at the bright side of things. There is always something in your life that you can be thankful for, no matter how hard it gets. Sure, there are going to be negative people, and they're going to be negative no matter what you do. I find that the best thing you can do around these people is to not join in with their negativity. Put a smile on your face and know that things are going to get better because you are going to make them better.

Just signed up. I'm loving it so far.
