Good luck everyone with the free verse challenge.

Do you miss a period, are you worried, do you even care about it, do you know you missed a period.
I think missing a period or several periods doe’s not matter at all, do you or other people really care or do they even know when you missed a period, its not the end of the world, life will carry on as normal.
To me a period is nothing to worry about, its either there are not, its not going to hurt anyone even the person who missed the period.

Rated it: 5 Stars
Recommends it to: Generally the Young Adult crowd into the urban fantasy realm. If you liked The Edge series (haven’t read it yet myself), chances are you might like this one as well.
Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.
Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…

Hey there. I can practically hear my echo. Haven’t been around lately but I’m here now sooo … This week is ending on high nerves and sweet depression. Music usually helps a lot, that’s why I can’t go a day without listening, it’s like a light in the darkness. I’m all for the older decades so some of these won’t surprise you. Here’s what’s been on my radio waves:
It’s Friday and fortunately for them they’re in love. Not me. I am a solitary soul and love is a dream.
I find that I liked the German version better. This translates to 99 Red balloons but I read somewhere that it’s actually ‘Air’ Balloons. I think the change was for political reasons, air balloons and the war, or I could be reading into it wrong. Nena’s voice has this breathy tone and I think it went well with the hard groovy beats. My family has gotten used to my dancing madly to this by now.
Need I say anything? This is sweet! I realize that the music change with the times and influences but I do wish there were more songs like this these days.
