I didn't post any pictures with my introduction because I didn't have any in my PhotoBucket at the time, and my computer is extremely slow. But if anyone is really bored and wants to see any pictures of my sister and I, they're at http://www.picturetrail.com/laurenolivia/ in the Me & Family album (of course).

How many sisters do you have? 1

What are their names/ages? Jerrica and she's 18

Are you the youngest, oldest, or middle child? I'm the youngest

What is your favorite quality about each of your sisters? My sister is my best friend and she's always there for me when I need her. She's also hilarious.

What is your favorite memory that you and your sister(s) have together? Hmm. It's hard to pick just one. A recent one that stands out is on the last night of camp, after campfire, us going back and roasting marshmallows in the fire. Haha, it was fun.

When was the last time you talked to your sister(s)? A couple of weeks ago, sadly.

Does your sister(s) live with you still, or are they far away? She lives a couple of hours away (she's at school).

If they live far away, how do you keep in touch? Through the phone. And visits, of course.

What is the funniest/silliest memory you have with your sister(s)?  When we were all trying to get her ready for prom last year, and everything was complete, total chaos. My mom could hardly finish her nails because she kept jerking away from her and all that. It's kind of hard to explain in words, but it was crazy.

What is your favorite thing that your sister has given to you? (tangible or intangible.) We have this photo album completely full of pictures of just us, and, right before our state competition in academics, she took the photo album and wrote me a note inside the back cover. It really meant a lot to me, and I kept it with me while we were at the competition. We won, by the way.

My only sister died on April 1 in a completely freak accident at her college.

she was 20. I am 17.

is there anyone else in this community who has experienced the loss of a sister and knows how hard it is?

if not, please just hug your sister for me. It really is one of those cases of "you don't know what you've got til it's gone."

Pink October! [03 Oct 2004|11:16am]


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month!!

About My Mother

Since I wrote the above, she has gotten sick. She has a staph infection right now. It's common for cancer patients with ports. It's somewhat serious. Please keep her in your thoughts!

Click to help for free:

How does awareness help?

  • It reminds women to get their yearly mammograms. Earlier detection increases chances of survival.

  • It reminds women that they should do monthly self-examinations. Again, earlier detection saves lives.

  • Awareness is contagious. If you are spreading awareness, the people you are spreading awareness to will spread awareness also!

  • Awareness raises funds. People becoming aware of such a huge issue may donate money towards research for a cure!!

    So, what can I do to increase awareness and/or help find a cure/fund mammograms?

    Many, many things...to name a few:

  • Wear a ribbon!! Go to Wal-Mart and spend a couple bucks on pink ribbon and safety pins.

  • Give out ribbons! Make ribbons and give them out to your family, friends and colleagues!

  • Click the buttons above [daily] to raise funds. It only takes a second and it's free!

  • Donate money to Breast Cancer research!! You may do so on many breast cancer sites like The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Breast Cancer Campaign, Breast Cancer dot org, CBCRP, BCRF, action breast cancer and many others!

  • Many sites, including some that I linked here, also sell clothing, accessories, and gift items promoting awareness. This is a great way to donate to research and also have items that will promote awareness in your daily life! The gift items you can find are really nice too. Next time you're giving a gift, donate to research at the same time!

    Some additional shops online:

    The BC Mall

    The Pink Ribbon Shop


    Find Gift

    Beaux Tie Designs

    Breast Cancer Care [also a support site]

    Center Coin

  • Help participate in a study [UK women only]

  • Volunteer to have your PC aid in cancer research.

  • Boobie-Thon

  • Save lids to save lives!

  • Buy pink and white M&M's!

  • Buy breast cancer awareness stamps!

  • Go bowling!

  • Ask your employer about Denim Day.

  • Many local shops will also have items you can purchase to support research. Ask at Target, Wal-Mart, Rite Aid and many more! If you're not in the states or you want to order online, Target offers awareness items online. Simply visit Target Pink.

  • Wear a virtual ribbon on your webpage!! I have collected and/or created many banners, pictures and journal icons...and even an AOL instant messenger icon! You are welcome to use any or all of them!! They will also work to use as avatars on forums and other messengers!

    Why are regular breast exams important?

    Early detection saves lives! Make sure you go for yearly mammograms and do self-exams every month.

    Tell me about the self-exams. I need more information.

  • You can make self exams a habit by requesting a free breast self exam shower card. This waterproof card illustrates and explains the self exam, and is designed to hang in your shower or on the bathroom door handle. Hang it somewhere where you will see it as a constant reminder.

  • If you don't want to wait for a card, download a pdf card and print it.

  • You can also learn how to do the self exams on this website.

  • Many websites offer to send you a monthly email reminder to do your self exam. You can request the service here or even get a reminder program here.

    Other Links

    Awareness article on BBC

    Breast Cancer Awarness banners, images and icons!!Collapse )

    I will try to post even more images during this month!!

    Additional Sources of InformationCollapse )

    You are welcome to post this in any community that may be relevant that I missed!! I would appreciate it a lot!! If you can post it in your own communities, whether they are relevant or not, it would be so cool of you to do that. If you're part of any community at all that wouldn't mind this post, share it there as well! You just tell them that xink wrote it at the beginning of the post! I can email the full code for this entry to anyone who would like to post it around. One easy way to do it is to just link them to this entry!

    If you think I should add any links, images or information to this post that I don't already have here, email me: bcawareness at sarse dot net.

    Thanks for reading this post!!

    I don't usually like spamming, but this is an issue that's important and close to my heart.

    I just created saawareness, a community for sexual assault awareness. If you have been a victim, or you know someone who was a victim, or you are just someone who sympathises with victims, you may be interested in joining. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, so wear a teal ribbon to show your support. :)

    nonfiction [16 Apr 2004|11:16pm]

    i'm going to try and tell the story as objectively as possible. i'd like advice on every aspect of it. thank you.

    Zel and Kay have been together for 4 years. Zel has never been much liked by Kay's family. Kay's family thinks she is perfect. Zel and Kay have been having problems. Zel is not much into sex, and Kay is. Zel is not gay. Kay is 21, Zel is 22. Kay has a younger sister, Ari. Ari is 18. Recently Ari and Ari have become friends. Kay and Ari's mother has a problem with this. Ari is in Zel's band. Zel really loves music and wants to be a rock star. Zel and Ari like the same kind of music. Zel dyed Ari's hair. Ari's drum set is at Kay and Zel's apartment. Ari comes over and spends every weekend. Ari and Kay are very close. Kay thinks the most important part of a relationship is friendship, but that sex turns it into a boyfriend/girlfriend situation. Kay and Zel were best friends. Basically, now Zel and Ari are best friends, because they have more in common. Zel still loves Kay though. Kay becomes a little jealous. Ari is very hurt by the jealousy. Their mom starts to talk to Ari about how Kay must feel and how rotten Ari is to do this to her sister. Ari talks to Zel about it and they are both very upset. Zel and Ari individually talk to Kay about it. Kay becomes sick of hearing about it. Kay thinks it's great that they're friends, but she wants to be Zel's best friend. Zel talks to Ari on the phone and on the computer a lot. He talks to Ari more than he talks to Kay. There is nothing sexual at all between Ari and Zel. Zel has said that if it's such a big deal, he won't be friends with Ari and he will kick Ari out of the band. Kay doesn't want to hurt her sister, as she doesn't have many friends at the moment. But then, neither does Kay. Kay and Zel don't get much alone time together. There are always friends over, and their job schedules are usually conflicting. Kay becomes bitchy and snaps at everyone for little things. Zel tells Kay that no wonder he'd rather talk to Ari because Ari doesn't yell at him. Kay starts to pretend that everything is fine. Kay feels ugly. A lot of their friends have expressed interest in Ari. Ari has become part of the group of friends. Ari and Kay's mother expresses concern once more about Ari and Zel's relationship. She even writes to Dear Abby. Ari feels terrible, but doesn't want to lose her best friend. She feels that there should be no problem. Zel agrees.

    Who should be upset?
    What should happen now?
    Please, please, please give me some advice.
