Yusuf Islam“Peace Train’

“Now I’ve been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun
Oh, I’ve been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Some day it’s going to come
‘Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
Oh, peace train take this country
Come take me home again
Now I’ve been smiling lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun
Oh, peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on the peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on the peace train
Get your bags together
Go bring your good friends too
‘Cause it’s getting nearer
It soon will be with you
Now come and join the living
It’s…

PenneyVanderbilt

The World Trade Center rail hub “Oculus” will officially open in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) announced late last week.

The opening will provide 100,000 riders that use the PATH rail facility daily with below-ground access to a new entrance on the corner of Liberty and Church streets, a few blocks from Wall Street.

The hub replaces the World Trade Center terminal that was destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City. Although PATH trains have been using the new hub since May 2015, the facility has not been fully operational.

Over the next few weeks, the eastern entrance to the Oculus will open, providing PATH riders with direct access to Church Street and to the Fulton Street Transit Center. In late spring, the new access from the Oculus to the…

One of the hardest makeup related tasks to do is finding a foundation to match your skin. Throw in skin types/tones and things can get real messy real fast. What do I suggest for beginners? Skip foundation and go to straight to concealer. Find a colour that is about a shade lighter then your skin. My favourite all around concealer is the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. Apply (with the attached sponge tip) under the eyes in a triangle shape and between the brows in another triangle shape to highlight the center of your face making you look more awake.

Lost: When circumstances influence you

Wanderlust: Becoming a Traveler

Sometimes you get lost in circumstances…
…It’s not necessarily a bad thing. However, when you awake, you’re somewhat baffled by yourself.

Compass

Relocating abroad this time has proved to be a somewhat difference experience from the beginning compared to previous relocations I’ve made. This is solely due to circumstances… Circumstances such as not being a student anymore but a ’grown-up’ with a full time job and certain responsibilities. This is not to forget all the formalities and paper work that need to be done when relocating. And then there’s the love interest too…

Being away from home for 12 hours a day doesn’t leave time for much during the week. That means the weekend has to make up for the ’lost time’ – the lost time that would have been spent on exploring. However, with a newly love interest that you, of course, want to see and socialize with, it has…

Some tips for the new blogger

plotlessone.com

Write it strong. When I say this it doesn’t mean you have to be a strong writer. I believe that will come in time. What I mean is let the strength of your personality show through your blog. Write the way you speak. I believe writing with your own voice comes across best, and gives your blog an authentic feel. Only divert from  your true voice when you are trying to set the mood or a tone of a post. i.e. a creative piece.

Leave your mark. Be a dog and take a piss on other blogs. Find about 25 blogs that you like, and you can keep up with. Follow them. You can mark them with a “like,” which is more like taking a little tinkle on their blog, or a comment, which is more like taking a dump. Be bold and take some dumps. Leave comments on the…
