Plastic free

  • Hi so recently I went to visit Grace and her family ( I don't know how she is called n NMG right now but she used to be called Gracefruit) and I learnt a lot about living plastic free and it really inspired me so I talked about how I would make a message board about going from wasteful to plastic free and here it is :) so yeah .       I'm actually pretty happy with living plastic free because it's not that harder than I thought it would be (plus I think I have been eating away my healthy since I started avoiding plastic because so many sweets come in plastic) I think we have good instructions on NMG how to live plastic from Grace so I'm just going to share my experience here. so first things first I came home from my trip (visiting Grace in the family) and went grocery shopping with one of my friend's because we had a day trip pland let's talk about the reactions from all my friend's so most of them didn't really say anything to it but where two or thought that that was weird and not really cool ( cool in a trendy way)  but I have to say one of my friends that don't have contact with anymore used  to also avoid plastic but I never thought it was cool or a nice thing to do because it wasn't really inspiring I think that was because she didn't want to be plastic free it  was just her  a mother so yeah....... But then today  I had a conversation with a few other friends and I actually found out that I thought it was really interesting and yeah that was cool are I have to say it  didn't really change a lot in my life other than that I feel like more aware I think it's like deciding you want to be a vegetarian now (which I am by the way) it's just a change in your life but it's nothing too difficult I mean there's really good alternatives and I I don't feel like I have a need to buy stuff with plastic. ok I think that's enough for today is this interesting for you guys ? should I post more if I have more updates about living plastic free? Should I posted it  as a message board or an writings ? Anyways thanks for reading !

Getting a counselor

I sometimes feel like I want someone not in my family or one of my bffs to talk to. So the right thing to do would to get a counsellor right? But I have two issues. One: how do I ask my mom for one? I feel so scared of asking her. Two: can I trust a counsellor or will they make guesses about my family life that are untrue because of something I tell them. Please answer honestly for two!  - Anonymous   Hello. I completely understand where you’re coming from. I used to see a counselor myself,…

Lots of Friendship Problems

“I've been having A LOT of friendship problems at the moment, and I'm finding it hard to sustain the majority of my "friendships", should I say? I have this one friend who's NEVER apologised to me. I can't tell her because she's really sensitive, and would bite my head off (theoretically, of course). We've had fights like that. Another thing is for them to stop texting me when they're bored 'cause it makes me feel like I'm thier last option. I really need help!” -Emily Communication is very…

Menstrual Cycle Schedule

“Is it okay not to have your period at the beginning of the week in a new month but have it the next week?” - Anonymous   Hi there, Good news: Yes, not only is it okay to have some inconsistency in your period schedule, it’s also totally normal! Especially when you’re younger and/or relatively new to menstruating (although, for some people, this can apply later on as well), it’s very common for your period not to follow a precise monthly pattern. Many people might not get their period again…

Finding a time to cry

I am really sensitive and really want to cry ALL the time. Most of the time I can hold it back. But eventually I just spill over. I see a lot of people who say it’s okay to cry but I feel like my family acts like it isn’t. I just want to cry.  - Anonymous   Hi there. That does sound like a problem, but not on your part at all. I’m terribly sorry your family is being unreasonable about your need to cry. I certainly know all about crying – I cry at pretty much every emotion, so I get that you…
