Why Let Go?

Why did I have to let him go?

Why did I have to rip my heart out, keep my head high, and walk straight into an unknown future?

Time. It’s about time that I needed to realize my self-worth, my self-respect.

I trusted him, but he couldn’t take the responsibility. I trusted him, I trusted him.

Trust, trust, and trust. Such a small word, that could mean the whole world for someone.

I had to reproach myself again, this time however, a different demon to blame.

I had to let go because it’s more powerful than holding on. And I am powerful. I am The Light. I am The Life. And I’ve never seen a life so full of love and warmth.

I miss my home, a home I will never know. For how can a lost soul find a never existing home. It keeps moving around, giving its best for temporary peaceful moments. A well of love, of light.

Facebook Home Interface

In an unexpected step, Facebook decided to enter the world of operating systems and compete with Android.

Facebook home is the new operating system developed by Facebook that integrates several features of Facebook with the home screen of mobile phones.

According to Mark Zuckerberg, “Our phones are designed around apps and not people. We want to flip that around.”

So the new interface allows you to swipe through photos and status updates of your circle of friends. Besides, messaging has a new interface with Chat Heads, which is basically a group of icons with profile pictures that pop up whenever you are using Facebook messages.

To start solidifying its place in the smartphones market, the smartphones company HTC and the wireless carrier AT&T revealed the new smartphone HTC First, that already has the new interface integrated and optimized for users. 

Finally, for all those of you who are excited for Facebook Home, the new interface will be availble for Android after starting April 12. Supporting devices include HTC One, Samsung Galaxy Note II, and Galaxy S3 and S4.

Now who is excited for the new interface in town?

Bacon Quinoa with Almonds and Herbs

bacon-quinoa-with-almonds-and-herbs_456X342

“Quinoa is a miracle food,” says Bruce Sherman. Native to the Andes Mountains, the nutty, protein-rich grain is now also grown in the U.S. Sherman tosses it with smoky bacon and toasted almonds to make a substantial side dish that’s delicious with poached eggs or roasted chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup slivered      almonds
  • 1 teaspoon      vegetable oil
  • 2 thick      slices of applewood-smoked bacon, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 small shallot,      minced
  • 1 cup quinoa,      rinsed
  • 2 cups chicken      stock
  • 1 sage      sprig
  • 1 tablespoon(s)      minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon(s)      chopped parsley
  • Salt and      freshly ground white pepper

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the almonds in a pie plate and toast in the oven until golden brown, 4 minutes; let cool.

2. In a medium saucepan, heat the oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderately high heat until the fat has rendered, about 2 minutes. Add the shallot and cook, stirring a few times, until softened but not browned, about 1 minute. Add the quinoa, stock and sage and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the stock has been absorbed, about 17 minutes. Remove the quinoa from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Discard the sage and fluff the quinoa with a fork. Stir in the chives, parsley and toasted almonds. Season the quinoa with salt and pepper and serve.
