Suicide Among Preteens

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in older children’s (even for preteens or children at the age of 9 to 12 years old, suicide is the leading causes of death) and teens. In fact in 2005 over 1800 teenagers died from committing suicide or making it the third leading cause of death. Worldwide, about 90,000 teens commit suicide each year (that means around 10 teens die from committing suicide every hour), with about four million suicide attempts.
The reason for this terrible increase in suicide cases are yet unsure but people have many theories that include children to have increased access to hunting equipment’s such as all kinds of guns and knives and people often don’t lock them up away from their children.
It has also been an enormous increase in alcohol abuse drug use at young age. Another leading theory is that the rise in teen suicides may be because fewer teens are being treated with antidepressants when they have depression (also mood disorders and chronic anxiety) and untreated depression is itself a risk factor for suicide, fewer teens taking antidepressants could have the unintended effect of leading to more suicides.
A lot of children have been physically and mentally assault that changes a little child’s life forever and if it doesn’t get the help it need it can cause a huge damage to their future and that can also lead to suicide.
Eating disorders can also lead to suicide because of the lack of self-esteem.   So as you can see a lot can get your kid or even you friend to commit suicide. 
But one of the biggest rates of kids that have suicide thoughts or have committed suicide is being bullied or has been bullied.
I think that we don’t talk enough about suicide among our younger generation. Even though it’s thought it’s just one of those things people have to talk about. You can’t go around feeling bad or feel sorry for yourself without telling someone what’s wrong.
In most cases children won’t or think that they can’t talk about their feelings with other don’t even their parents. Even though it’s not right they just think that is better not to worry other people about their feelings. So you parents out there take some of your time and talk to your children regularly have a household dinner and talk about how  they are doing in school and if they like it  there or if there are any problem in school or other places.
The worst thing ever is when you blame yourself when someone commits suicide. Believe me it is never your fault, even though you just argued or fought with the person shortly before. So always remember that it is never ever your fault.

It's Time For A Change!

Within a month ago I decided to change my environment. Last year was a really tuff year for me so I needed to get away for a while. I’m moving north in only 9 days, short notice I know. But I got this amazing job opportunity at a beautiful restaurant. I’ll dwell there for about 5 months to begin with, after that I’ll have to go back south because I will be going to school this autumn finally! I have been waiting for 2 years to get into this school and finally I’m in.

I traveled north last Thursday to see the new apartment, it was absolutely beautiful. But the bigger thing is that I didn’t go by myself I had my best friend with me but the most important thing was that I fooled a lovely boy to come with me also. We had this amazing time together, but at the same time we had some bump in the road but I’m crossing my fingers that this will turn out right and he will be someone I can lean on in time of need.

I’m beginning to comprehend that there are many things that you need to put up with to be with the person you want to be with but it gets hard when there is always someone else butting in our business and meanwhile I’m automatically getting push slowly away without him noticing it. I hope that it will change with time I guess I put up with it until I come back without saying anything.

~Until next time
Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.

Last Nights Dinner!

Last night my parents’ friend came over for dinner and I made creamy cauliflower soup and I really wanted bacon so I just decided to add some delicious bacon to my soup and it tasted so good and I was very pleased with the outcome.  
Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Bacon
50 gr. Unsalted butter
1 onion, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic
Salt to taste
5 medium sized potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 heads cauliflower, cut it in small pieces
1 quart beef broth
1 quart water
1 cup heavy cream
75 gr. bacon, chopped
40 gr finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Melt and heat up the butter over medium heat. Toss in the onion and celery and cook it for a little while around 5 minutes.  Then add the garlic and a bit of salt and stir that together.
Stir in potatoes, cauliflower, beef broth, and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until cauliflower is tender and potatoes are easily smashed against the side of the pot. That will take about 30 minutes
Puree the soup using an immersion blender until smooth. Reduce the heat to low, Pour in the cream and cheese and continue to cook until melted.
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and add it to the soup
Season with more salt to taste
Then just Bon Appétit!

First book of the year!

I started reading this book around Christmastime but got caught up at work and all the stress got the better of me. So I didn't have to time to really sit down and read but now I'm going to start over on the book and finish it.

The book is called if I stay, last year a movie came out based on this book. The story follows 17-year-old Mia Hall as she deals with the aftermath of a catastrophic car accident involving her family. In a coma, Mia has an out-of-body experience and watches as friends and family gather at the hospital where she is being treated. Mia watches as her memories flash before her eyes as she comes to realize that she must decide if she should wake up and lead a life far more difficult than she ever anticipated, or slip away and die

I didn’t want to see the movie before reading the book because I didn’t want to spoil the book. I often find book more interesting the movies just like the fault in our stars I loved the book but wasn’t really pleased with the movie I would give the book 9 out of 10 but the movie 6 out of ten.

A new year a new beginning!

It’s the first day of the year and no better time for writing down our New Year’s resolutions and of course for me to open up my blog again.
New Year’s resolutions are a bit like babies: They’re fun to make but extremely difficult to maintain. My New Year’s resolutions will be from crocheting a blanket up to travel out of the country. New Year’s resolutions and usually about breaking some kind of a bad habit such as give up smoking or cut back on alcohol. The myth says that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. A research studying habits of 96 people over a 12-week period. Each person chose one new habit for the 12 weeks and reported each day on whether or not they did the behavior and how automatic the behavior felt. On average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic, 66 days to be exact. And how long it takes a new habit to form can vary widely depending on the behavior, the person, and the circumstances. So when you but down your New Year’s resolutions make them realistic to avoid unnecessary disappointment.
