    Although it's great to post healthy living tips, and these are good, I wanted to say that I love Good so much for the people and initiatives you support, and I don't think you should have ocmpanies like Naked advertised here when they are known for using GMOs in non GMO products, and are facing class action lawsuits, in their supposed ' all natural products'. I myself as an ecologically conscious vegan would never consume something with such a reputation knowing they are compromsing the sustainability of our planet. here is a link to read more:

    Naked is also owned by PEPSI co. sustainable? GOOD? i think not. we all know what diet soda has done to our kids and health, not to mention our environment.

    The naked and pepsi co brand has also been known ``Both of the industry giants donated millions to defeat proposition 37, the GMO labeling act`` ... so yes, follow their health tips, but don't support their product or company.. make your own smoothies at home or support a more ethical company that is truly GOOD.

    Chasmine, we all have to conform in our lifetimes, but as individuals we do have the power to create change. My husband and I took a stand many years ago, but it really didn't do anything but upset that school administration for a brief moment in time. Even though we opted-out of standardized tests for our children, we don't believe we will see the public school system change in our lifetime. Either way, we must stand-up for what we believe in, and get involved. You cannot create change if you don't get involved. Run for public office. Serve your community. Volunteer your time, even if it is only a little bit, but get involved. Don't live your life, allowing others to make your decisions for you. You may not always be as effective as you hope to be, but be a participant. There are great opportunities to learn and grow when we participate. And remember, take care of your own personal maintenance or a maintenance window will be provided for you. That's a fact!

    I actually do. Throughout my years I was always put down, neglected and ostracized by my parents, hence the adopt me comment. I am the eldest of eleven children, born into poverty and violence. I was born into a home where my time studying was labeled as a waste, so I didn't. I was never, ever, involved in school. On the contrary I continuously ditched and went out with my "older friends" since the age of thirteen. I was a dissident by dictionary definition. I never took advantage of the free education. But I always read books in secrecy. At times I remember ditching only to go alone to the library or Barnes and Noble just to get away from it all, from the shitty home I had to the fake society, bunched up into a small area of under aged, infested, desperate teen facility. On my sixteenth birthday I decided to move out. I had a job at Pizza Hut and made it. I've done so much with my life in such little time. I'm only seventeen now but I have lived in Argentina, San Francisco and might graduate early. I attend a charter school now to fit my schedule. But beyond that it is the best school I have ever attended and I would have to type an entire separate page to explain how great it is and how it has changed my life. I'm sure if I would have taken advantage of all the other eleven years of education I would have been much smarter. I have big views, opinions, and ideas I simply need to better my English and strengthen my diction so I can be heard. I have volunteered in a retirement home, homeless shelter, hospitals, and currently an elementary school. In the most recent school, I managed to bring the community together and have a celebration/fair to fund raise for the school, it was amazing.
    I'm not really sure where I was going with this post. I guess I just needed to let it all out and let someone see a glimpse of all the things I've done, sometimes living on my own becomes a little lonely.
    However, it is superfluous to say that I am happy and grateful for it all. I have yet to become oblivious, and I tend to keep it that way.

    This is so important. I love projects like the Edible Schoolyard, that help teach kids about food by helping them grow it (and cook it) themselves. I'd love to see a future where every neighborhood had a corner garden to do the same thing.

    Maybe you can start a business like those Pottery places where you get a pot, cup,plate, piggy bank or something and paint it yourself. Instead it will give the consumer a chance to pick out any kind of plant and planting it out in the garden put his/her name on it and watch it grow throughout a certain amount of time then take it home after that certain amount of time is finished.
    &Have a separate section of already grown plants or "donated" plants from previous customers who planted their plants so people can pluck or take some from there and cook.
    Rough ideas but it had to be mentioned.

    I have taken the plunge here. Given up job in legal profession to follow my dream of using photography to bring communities together. It is scary but not as scary as not doing what is in my heart. With salary comes false value of self.

    Chasmine Villalobosover 1 year ago

    I have the same aspirations in a sense. I have never lived in a city for more than a year at a time. My most recent place is in Muscoy, CA. I was amazed at how I managed to help set up a festival at my little sister's school after just starting as a snow cone seller volunteer. My only problem is that I have a problem capturing moments like those.
    I'm less of a photographer and more of director/ writer.
    I'm not sure where I was going with this comment but I guess good luck with your life as a photographer.
    Have a nice evening :)

    Our children are 27 and 22 now. I think we were the only parents that opted-out when our kids were in school. I wrote our own letters. It wasn't easy, because they don't want us to opt-out. They tried to guilt us with the same stories and even punished our kids, but we all lived through it. As parents, we chose not to allow our children to be marginalized. Our children were bright, and there are times we were told they were gifted and talented, or AP students, but we still don't believe in standardized tests, or teacher teaching to them!!! We stand by our decision and would do it again.
