The Food Crisis

In the past few days, weeks and year really, I have opened my eyes to the food crisis in Canada, North America and the rest of the world. The food crisis is not just anorexia, bulimia and obesity, those are only part of the problem. The other aspect is Malnourishment and food shortage that occurs in impoverished countries. I usually do not take on a political and socially known opinion as I see that the world is full of negativity however in our generation of modern advancement, word can be spread faster and wider than other form, as it is a form of media. I feel strongly on this matter as I have suffered with the uncomfortable side affects of weight gain and the globalization of artificial and chemically engineered food.
I am currently 25-30 heavier than what the average teenage girl of 5'2 should be, and truth that is extremely scary. That I exercise, and eat well, but my addiction to caffeine, because that is what it is has caused unnecessary sugars from sodas into my blood and overall into my body. This has to stop and I WILL stop adding unnecessary sugar and waste in. This is in support to Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and to the promotion of healthy living. Especially mine.

P.S. I teared up as I wrote this and I plan to stick to it.

Top 10 Apps to Check Out

Here are my top 10 personal favorite apps in least to greatest of all time!

10. Facebook. Now I know what your thinking. Facebook? Really? However, growing up in a society of technology and long distance relationships ( friendships, parents, extended family and the love interest) it makes it easier to connect. One condition due to it's obsessive following, Facebook is highly addictive and completely compulsive. When or if you have a profile, make sure as to not to provide to much time to it.

9. Ace Attorney. My all time favorite game now has an app for it. Now if this comes into further need to divulge I will do top ten games. Enough said.

8. Cut the rope. I love this game so much!

7.iBooks. So much to offer but it just doesn't have a great amount of recent stuff so don't get your holes up.

6. Music. Now this app is just your typical music. It will always rank even though not as high as my many other apps.

5. Manga Rock. If you love anime and manga this a great app. The only thing is that in order to favorite your favorites you need to pay. I is well worth it though.

4. YouTube. Always a good way to enjoy those hours of laziness.

3. Discovr. A beautiful way to find musical talent based on your existing library with new artists, artist biographies, links and videos.

2. Starbucks. Yes a caffeine junkie like myself cannot afford to be lost in a strange city without my caffeine. Although I'm sure even without the app I would survive in walking a couple kilometers to find me some good ole caffeine... This just makes it easier.

1. And lastly the note pad app. I write my ideas and short blurbs on it all the time and it is just convenient way to remember things instead of looking for a paper and pen and then losing it later.

* all Apps above are for the iPod touch and opinions are all based on personal interest. I recommend all and all are worthwhile.

I figured since my posts are irregular that when things get to drawn out I will post a favorite list. If you have any comments, insights or questions please comment!
