how to date a broken girl
  • 1:When she leans in to kiss you for the first time, don't be surprised when she tastes like the long, thin sticks of cancer that always dangle between her lips and the bitter cup of coffee she warms her hands with.
  • 2:When you ask her what's troubling her and she shrugs it off, tell her that you fall in love with her every time you see her moonlit eyes.
  • 3:When she says she wants to die, do not say "I can't live without you". Remind her of your first date. Tell her before you went out, you told all your friends about her and her smile.
  • 4:When it's 3 in the morning and she wakes you up with a phone call and you can barely understand her through her ragged breath and sobs, tell her you'll be right over and walk the 4 miles to her house while you're still on the line with her so she doesn't take her last breath.
  • 5:When she tells you that she doesn't believe in "God", don't ask why. Understand that sometimes she doesn't even believe in the things right in front of her.
  • 6:When she tells you she think you should take a break, tell her that you love her and if that's what she thinks is best for her, so be it.
  • 7:Love her with all your heart, even the pieces you left back with your girlfriend in seventh grade. Tell her everyday how happy you are that a goddess chose to be with you.
  • 8:When she falls asleep one night and doesn't wake up the next day, remember that you did all you could and take out a little piece of your heart and leave it on her grave. Remember that she will always hold your hand when you think you want to see her again. Do not just remember her for the days when she was the sun, remember the nights where she lay in bed shaking under three layers of blankets.
  • 9:Take a deep breath. And move on.

White High Waist Pleated Skirt

There aren’t many skirts in my wardrobe and hence I got the white tennis skirt, similar to the American Apparel one. From what I saw all over my dashboard, I thought that it was pretty and unique.

The material of the tennis skirt is very nice and it’s made of cotton but it’s hard rather than soft?? It’s also not see through but I highly recommend wearing something white beneath it to prevent anything else seen.

The length is supposed to be 40cm since I purchased the Large but because of my hip, it doesn’t cover me up so there’s going to be some issues with me wearing it in public. Besides that, the way it was designed and made was really nice and I recommend those who haven’t purchased this, to get it! However, you might need to measure yourself and the lengths just in case. Also, try getting a size up than normal.

I guess it wasn’t as great as I thought it’d be for me since I’m tall. Kind of wished that they offered XL or something so that the skirt didn’t have to be as high. Anyways, without those disadvantages, I reckon that I’d get more of these but in other colours or maybe just the tennis skirt without it being high waist.

THANKS FOR READING!! 

Agape is total love. It is love that consumes the person that experiences it. Whoever knows and experience agape learns that nothing in the world is important - just love. This was the kind of love Jesus felt for humanity and it was so great that it shook the stars and changed the course of history. For the ancients, enthusiasm meant trance, or ecstasy - a connection with God. Enthusiasm is agape directed at an idea or specific thing. Enthusiasm normally manifests itself with all of its force during the first years of our lives. At that time, we have strong links to our divinity, and we throw ourselves into our play with our toys with such will our dolls come to life and our surroundings are transformed into new worlds. When Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven belonged to children, he was referring to agape in the form of enthusiasm. Children were attracted to him, not because they understood his miracles, his wisdom, or his apostles. They went to him in joy, moved by enthusiasm” ~~

The U.S. National Security Agency should have an unlimited ability to collect digital information in the name of protecting the country against terrorism and other threats, an influential federal judge said during a debate on privacy.

“I think privacy is actually overvalued,” Judge Richard Posner, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, said during a conference about privacy and cybercrime in Washington, D.C., Thursday.

“Much of what passes for the name of privacy is really just trying to conceal the disreputable parts of your conduct,” Posner added. “Privacy is mainly about trying to improve your social and business opportunities by concealing the sorts of bad activities that would cause other people not to want to deal with you.”

Congress should limit the NSA’s use of the data it collects—for example, not giving information about minor crimes to law enforcement agencies—but it shouldn’t limit what information the NSA sweeps up and searches, Posner said. “If the NSA wants to vacuum all the trillions of bits of information that are crawling through the electronic worldwide networks, I think that’s fine,” he said.

In the name of national security, U.S. lawmakers should give the NSA “carte blanche,” Posner added. “Privacy interests should really have very little weight when you’re talking about national security,” he said. “The world is in an extremely turbulent state—very dangerous.”

Posner criticized mobile OS companies for enabling end-to-end encryption in their newest software. “I’m shocked at the thought that a company would be permitted to manufacture an electronic product that the government would not be able to search,” he said.

Other speakers at Thursday’s event, including Judge Margaret McKeown of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, disagreed with Posner, saying legal limits on government surveillance are necessary. With much of U.S. privacy law based on a reasonable expectation of privacy, it’s difficult, however, to define what that means when people are voluntarily sharing all kinds of personal information online, she said.

An expectation of privacy is a foundational part of democracies, said Michael Dreeben, deputy solicitor general in the U.S. Department of Justice. Although Dreeben has argued in favor of law enforcement surveillance techniques in a handful of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, he argued courts should take an active role in protecting personal privacy.

“A certain degree of privacy is perhaps a precondition for freedom, political freedom, artistic freedom, personal autonomy,” he said. “It’s kind of baked into the nature of the democratic system.”

David Cole, a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center, called for a change in the U.S. law that gives email stored for six months less legal protection than newer messages. The ability of law enforcement agencies to gain access to stored email without a warrant makes no sense when many email users never delete messages.

U.S. courts or Congress also need to reexamine current law that allows law enforcement agencies to gain access, without a warrant, to digital information shared with a third party, given the amount of digital information people share with online services, he said.

Some recent court cases, including the Supreme Court’s 2014 Riley v. California ruling limiting law enforcement searches of mobile phones, have moved privacy law in the right direction, he said.

Posner questioned why smartphone users need legal protections, saying he doesn’t understand what information on smartphones should be shielded from government searches. “If someone drained my cell phone, they would find a picture of my cat, some phone numbers, some email addresses, some email text,” he said. “What’s the big deal?

“Other people must have really exciting stuff,” Posner added. “Do they narrate their adulteries, or something like that?”

Smartphones can contain all kinds of information that people don’t want to share, including medical information, visits to abortion doctors and schedules for Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, Cole said. “Your original question, ‘what’s the value of privacy unless you’ve got something to hide?’ that’s a very short-sighted way of thinking about the value of privacy,” he said.

In the 1960s and ‘70s, government agencies investigated political figures, in some cases, bugging hotel rooms in search of evidence of affairs, Cole noted. Government misuse of surveillance information is still a risk, he said, and smartphones could be a treasure trove of information.

The U.S. and other governments have a long history of targeting people “who they are concerned about because they have political views and political positions that the government doesn’t approve of,” Cole said.
