Blog makeover.

I've decided this blog can't go on any further like this..
It's too messy and is straying wayyy to far from the point it was originally supposed to be made for.
So it's going to get a makeover with lots of new features and changes.
Check back the next few days and trust me you'll be impressed
Love,
Audrey.

Bullying

 

Honestly, anybody who's above 3 years old has heard this word unless your off in you're own magical world. I think almost all of us have been visited by this little thing called bullying.

We may not realize it, but a simple joke intended to harm another is considered bullying. For example, tripping somebody is bullying, making fun of somebody is bullying. I found this quote on my friend's facebook and it said:

The Girl you just called fat? She has been starving herself & has lost over 30lbs. The Boy you called stupid, he has a learning disability & studies over 4hrs a night. The Girl you called ugly? She spends hours putting make-up on hoping people will like her. The Boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. There's a lot more to people then you think. Put this as your status if you're against bullying.

Although my friend is not a bully, you should see how many people that bully others put that as their statuses. I'm not joking, and neither should you. I've learned to rub off what other people say and stand up for myself, but some people are yet to find that in themselves. Do you know how many bullying programs there are? Some work, yet others remain ineffective. Bullies words can just go too far, thus leading to suicidal thoughts. 

I searched bullying statistics and what I saw was eye-opening.

Thanks to MBNBD who surveyed students gave us shocking facts. Here are some that caught my eye:

- It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. Source: National Education Association.
- American schools harbor approximately 2.1 million bullies and 2.7 million of their victims. Dan Olweus, National School Safety Center.
- 71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.
- 1 out of 20 students has seen a student with a gun at school.
- 90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying.
- Bullying statistics say revenge is the strongest motivation for school shootings.
- 87% of students said shootings are motivated by a desire to “get back at those who have hurt them.”
- 86% of students said, “other kids picking on them, making fun of them or bullying them” causes teenagers to turn to lethal violence in the schools.
- 61% of students said students shoot others because they have been victims of physical abuse at home.
- Harassment and bullying have been linked to 75% of school-shooting incidents.

Notice how all the percentages are higher than 50%? Some are as high as 90%. That means that generally 9/10 people have been victims of bullying.

- Suicide remains among the leading causes of death of children under 14. And in most cases, the young people die from hanging. (AAS)

And the most shocking is the LGBTQ statistics:

- In a 2007 study, 86% of LGBT students said that they had experienced harassment at school during the previous year. (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network -- GLSEN)

- Nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT youth reported being verbally harassed at school in the past year because of their sexual orientation

- Nearly half (44.1 percent) reported being physically harassed

- About a quarter (22.1 percent) reported being physically assaulted.

- Nearly two-thirds (60.8 percent) who experienced harassment or assault never reported the incident to the school

- Of those who did report the incident, nearly one-third (31.1 percent) said the school staff did nothing in response.

There you have it, did that change your way of thinking?


Read the full story here:


At my school we had participated in The Day of Silence. I thought it was a great idea. This day supports LGBTQ against their fight from bullying. Many may not agree with being LGBTQ, but it's more of supporting them on fighting their way against bullying. That's what this day is about, to limit suicidal thoughts of our peers. Click HERE for more details and try to get your school involved to fight against bullying.

Kindess

Yesterday I was at the grocery store with my sister. As she went to go pay for our items, I went to go return two movies we rented. As I was walking I saw a man. He at first was a little intimidating from the way he was acting but then he looked at me and smiled. He was probably the only person at that store to make eye contact with me and give me an earnest smile. I couldn't help but return it. That got me thinking, how many times in the day do we make eye contact with a person on the street and smile? Not very common. Usually, people keeps their heads down or they only look forward. Sad, but true.

I love to smile. I also love when a person will look at me and smile. I don't know if it is just me but whenever someone smiles at me, it makes me feel good. I am happy and touched by the fact that someone will show me a bit of kindness and smile at me. I know, it sounds so simple and maybe ever stupid to some of you, but it is something that matters to me.

On that note, I want to start a challenge. I want everyone reading this to think "Could I smile at at least one person I see on the street?" My challenge is, I want you to smile to at least on person you see on the street. You never know what a smile will do for a person. It could brighten up their entire day, to see someone they don't know make the effort to smile at them. Will you take my challenge?

And the winner is...

I was upset to see only 3 people entering the make-up competition but ever still, that made it harder to choose our winner.

After some really badly timed communication errors on Stardoll's behalf, I have finally been able to give the results.

The 3 contestants - MMAlovergirl, Pikandchew and BellaCullen4210 all chose completely different takes on the peaceful make-up theme.

Here are the 3 styles:




MMAlovergirl

Pikandchew

BellaCullen4210


All 3 styles are unique and I loved them all however, we could only have one winner

So, the winner is... *Drum Roll* ... Pikandchew

Congratulations, both me and Audrey thought that your make-up was just so unexpected and original that you were the winner of 1OOsd and instant make-up of the week.


What do you think?


Peace out.

Seriously Stardoll?

I'm pretty annoyed by a recent message I received off Stardoll after I sent in clear evidence of a member swearing, being racist and practically bullying other members. When I read the reply I was so angry so I thought to myself, "is Stardoll doing anything to stop this?" and my first thought back was: "Ermm.. no!".




Please click to enlarge it and the tinypic address to view the evidence is http://tinypic.com/r/33xbjhx/7 and the doll I reported, Fashionguy. who infact is a girl.


Now you might be wondering, why post this? I posted this because Stardoll doesn't seem to care about these problems. All they did was tell me to report and block but how will that help anyone, it'll just continue on until Stardoll get bored and decide to delete the account.

This is the complete opposite of peace. I am ashamed to be part of a racist, non-caring society that is full of fame whores and bullies. Obviously, not everyone is like that and there is a minority of wonderful and friendly people out there including our amazing Audrey and all the writers here and of course, the support and followers. Other than that, whores and bullies.

Do you think Stardoll cares about us and our welfare?

Peace out.

Hi Dolls.

First things first, I am Nöur Grande also known as Kaami1990 on Stardoll, I am the new writer here and I'd like to thank Audrey, for giving me this wonderful opportunity.

Loving who you are, is important and of course it is a huge part of your self esteem, everyone is beautiful. So, in this post I would like you guys to post down below 3 things that you like about yourself and 3 things that you don't like about yourself, appearance wise or even personality wise. 
Just to show that everybody has flaws, but your flaws make you who you are. No body's perfect, so don't try to be perfect because the only way you will be perfect is by being your own person and loving your self no matter what.

And remember, dolls...

Well Wishing for 9/11




Today is the 11th of September (also known as 9/11) and it have been 10 years since the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trading Center in New York City; both towers collapsed within 2 hours.

It was a series of 4 planned attacks - 2 planes crashed into the Twin Towers, the third crashed into The Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and the fourth (which was originally targeting Washington D.C) crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after passengers tried to take control of the plane.

Please take a couple of minutes to remember the people who were lost and the people who saved lives on 9/11.




I found a quote too which I thought was good note to end on, here it is:



"Peace is not something you wish for; it's something you make, something you do, something you are and something you give away" - Robert Fulghum



Peace out.

Beautiful



I just wanted to take five minutes out of my day to tell you all that you're beautiful. No one is ugly on the inside or outside, we all have something to offer.

    beau·ti·ful
    adjective /ˈbyo͞otəfəl/ 
    1. Pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically
      • beautiful poetry
      • - a beautiful young woman
      • - the mountains were calm and beautiful
    2. Of a very high standard; excellent
      • - the house had been left in beautiful order
      • - she spoke in beautiful English

      ^ everyone fits those definitions somehow. You might be beautiful to yourself, you might be beautiful to friends, you might be beautiful to strangers but we're all beautiful in one way or another. Never ever call yourself ugly or try to put yourself down because it's never true, keep that in mind the next moment you get an urge to put yourself down.

A Child Called "It" - What Have We Come To?




Everyday you wonder, what has this world come to? May this saying be overused, but it's definitely underrated, if that makes sense. 

Scary things happen in life and we learn to deal with it. I've seen things that I didn't want to see. I've heard stories I didn't want to hear. No, I'm not afraid of monsters and that stuff, honestly my biggest fear is people.

 I was reading through some stories for a project, in particular the Greek creation myth of us humans. I saw how the "gods" were deciding whether or not to give us the gift of fire, and one said that with fire, us humans will devour our own race ourselves. Sounds crazy, but oddly true. I pondered on the thought of that and it finally made sense. This is more metaphoric to me, but the more power we have, the more fear should come along. Strange enough, I wrote a paper on that topic earlier. Honestly, the truth is that our race is dying. Not slowly, not fast, but before our eyes. We can't see it happening but we know it is, it's meant to be deceiving. 

Us humans obviously are not in unison, but the gut-wrenching fact of what's happening nowadays is just sick.

Have you ever thought of this... How can you abuse your own "child"? Better yet, how can you live with it? Child abuse is disgusting. Most murders are either child or woman related. Living in this world is traumatized as it is. I could never imagine my own mother beating me to almost....death.

Does this sound familiar? A lot of you probably heard about the book, A Child Called It. It's made it's way all over the world, in over 40 different languages. I remember getting the book from the library, and as I walked out I must've gotten about 5 people come up to me and say "That is the saddest book in the world." Honestly, I'm not a big reader. I read very few books and the only reason I checked the book out is because my friend did and I had to leave soon.

My summary of what happened?
Dave Pelzer, the author himself, explains how he was tragically abused. No I do not mean a simple slap, that is not abuse, I mean near death. His mother who was an unstable alcoholic psychologically and physically scarred him. I remember in the book it explained how she pulled his ear, hit him if he moved a muscle, and abandoned him to the cold basement with very little food. Things got worse, he was forced to drink cleaning chemicals, force to eat dog poop, and it even got to the point where is mother told him to lay on the light stove so she can watch him burn. She even stabbed him claiming it was an accident. Really? How can you ACCIDENTALLY stab your son? When he finally was taken away and got examined by a doctor, he lost all sense of feelings in his hands.

Even though she was unstable, before she had passed, David as a grown man interviewed her and she remembered it all. 

To vividly remember every one of these details is heartbreaking.

I don't want to reveal this all, but you can watch his interview HERE.

I encourage you to read this if you haven't already. Please post your reviews in the comments.
But really, what HAS this world come to?

A different Kind of Peace.

Hello Peaceful People,
Mannyperry here. 
Sorry I could not post for a while.

There were BLACKOUTS where i lived.

Yes, you might have heard of it, its started in Yuma, Arizona and spread all the way to San Diego and Mexico.

Now, i would have expected, Screaming, Whining, and the worst: Begging for Technology

ew. ;)

But when my family stepped out to escape the heat of my house, we were greeted with this:
Now, this is San Diego Downtown...We dont live here, but the thing that greeted us was that Moon.
Everyone was outside, chatting, biking, and there were even these little kids who were giving out popsicles so that they wouldn't melt.

Yesterday night was a day of peace. A different Kind of Peace. 
Usually, we hardly recognize this kind of peace, but I guess you only see whats Golden in harder circumstances.

Everyone got along yesterday. If only we could bring that sort of peace everywhere.

:]

I want to talk about 9/11.

A very Hard and Sad topic to write and read about.

To be honest. That day was well...Heck.\
I have a worse word...but i prefer not to say it.

To all our 9/11 angels.
We miss you, even if we haven't met or seen you.
In our hearts you're there,
we wont forget your bravery and your Sacrifice.
We hope you're well, wherever you are. :)

The 9/11 Memorial. One of the top ten places i want to go.

Have a great weekend :]

and remember, I always come in
PEACE.

Working With Your Parents

I want everyone to answer this question honestly, how many times have there been when you wanted to start yelling at your parents? Ok, simpler questions, how many times in the last week have you wanted to start screaming at your parents? If there was even once, don't kick yourself over it, you can't expect yourself to be perfectly cooperative with your parents on EVERY decision. It is unrealistic to expect yourself of that. You may ask now though, how can I learn to talk with my parents with out blowing up at them? I will give you a few tips that everyone can apply, and not only with their parents but with ever situation you may face!

Tip #1: Before you start to get mad, try and listen to what they are saying.
I know it may not seem it at the time, but your parents do know what they are talking about. Maybe they haven't been in the exact situation as you but they are able to look at that situation with an unbiased mindset and tell you what should be done, even if it is not what you wanted to hear. I'll admit, there are times when I don't like what my parents are telling me but I know they are right.

Tip #2: Talk it out with them.
Don't be afraid to tell your parents how you feel. If you have something that is bothering you, don't hold back from telling them. What if telling them is too hard though? Try writing a letter. You would be surprised but when you write it all out, you stay much more calm and are able to explain your thoughts and feelings a lot better. This is one of my biggest problems. I keep quiet and don't tell my parents how I feel on a matter or I am not clear when I do talk. It not only frustrates them but it also upsets me. (Cation! When you are telling your parents how you feel, make sure you are telling them and not yelling at them. You may not realize it but before you know it your voice is too high for their liking and that never makes matters easier. Also, try not to say things like "You never let me do..." or "Everyone else does..." Don't pass the blame, try to lay it out in front of them. You will all stay much more calm.)

Tip #3: Never lie or sneak behind their back.
You may think it is just easier to not ask your parents to go and do something or you may think that your parents would say no, but just try and ask. They may really surprise you. There have been plenty of times when I was sure they would say no but they surprised me and agreed. Keep in mind though, it is NEVER a good idea to go against what your parents say. They will find out one way or another and that is not an argument you want to be at the end of.

Tip #4: Try not to get too worked up when your parents are counseling you. 
If you parents are giving you advice on what to do, don't get too worked up. Try your best to stay calm and hear what they have to say. It will only irritate your parents more if they see you get defensive, or hurt, or mad.

Tip #5: If you want them to to start treating you older, you need to show it.
Maybe you want your parents to view you as more mature. Thing is, you actually have to act that way. Think of it this way, if you see someone at school always joking around and never doing what he is told even when it is simple. All they do is irritate and annoy then they go and ask for everyone to respect them for a mature adult. What would you think of them if that happened? Same with your parents! If you want them to respect you more, you need to act worthy of it. Maybe you want them to raise your allowance or extend your curfew (or bedtime, depends on your age), you need to show you are responsible enough to get it. Maybe you can pick up with one or two more chores around the house or help out with dinner a bit. Your parents will see the differences and reward you. (Cation! Keep in mind, it may take weeks if not months to show you are responsible but all it takes is one little lie to throw all of that hard work out of the window. Also, if you think that your parents don't notice your hard work, try calmly bringing it to their attention. Remember, calmly is always the key word.)

Tip #6: Don't be afraid to ask your parents if you can have some time to think over a big decision.
There is nothing wrong with asking your parents if you can think over a big decision. It not only will help you to get a better handle on the decision but it will also show your parents you are responsible.

Well, I hope these few tips come in handy the next time you see a conversation with your parents spiraling out of control. I know these may seem easier said then done, but trust me, if you just try to apply at least one of these tips, it will help beyond belief! So, as I bring this helpful little guide to an end, I wish you all the best of luck in trying to apply these helpful hints and I sincerely hope they help you in building a better relationship with your parents!

Little Words Can Go A Long Way



I have to admit, I can be sensitive at times.
When it's somebody I know and is important to me, I'm even more sensitive.
Me being me, a female, we have those emotions. Sometimes I'm extremely confident, next thing I know all I can think about are those little words.

The way I perceive bullying as is anything that is intentional to hurt others.
You may not realize that this it is qualified as bullying, but it may be.

I can be very self conscious, I mean very.
If I present something, and somebody else does something better, I have to admit that I do feel down on myself. I have these moments where I am extremely upset, don't want to talk to anybody or about anything and I feel just embarrassed. 

I try my hardest to impress, I have to admit doing this is not exactly the best thing to do, but without a thought I just happen to do it. I have to be that perfect girl.

I do have a lot to write about because basically I'm explaining to you what happened to me. One thing about me, I do NOT like [bad] attitude. Do not give me attitude, I will not stand for it. I will literally just walk out of the place if you do. 
I hate it. The tone of your voice can ruin somebodies day. 

I live in an area which is not diverse and I hate it. People are constantly mocking each other and competing to see who's the richest or whatever. I later then started attending school in a more diverse city, my state's capitol. I fell in love with the different culture and diversity immediately.

My self confidence was very low attending my town's school, but I just felt it rising as I entered my new school. I was bullied for racial reasons, one of the most stupidest reasons of all. 

I always look back on those terrible moments whenever somebody says something that hurts my feelings. When people who are close to me say "shut up" in a serious way it can hurt. I mean I'm not a sensitive whiny person or whatever, trust me I'm stronger than most people. It makes me wonder who they really are to me and if they're my friends.

I apologize for the quick post today, but for the conclusion of my post, I want to know, what little words have hurt you?

Think about it now, have you unintentionally said those little words that may have hurt anybody?

Standing up for a friend.. bullying or the right thing to do?

I'm sure everyone has been in the situation where they've seen a friend get taunted or bullied.. I did today and personally i'm not proud of some of the things I said. I probably said some hurtful or offensive things in my process at sticking up for a friend and I truly regret that. I had a lapse of judgement but i'm sure everyone does at some point, it's part of being human because no one is perfect.. you just have to try and be the best you can be.

This made me think about where the fine line between sticking up for someone and bullying starts and ends. What do you guys think? Was I wrong in my actions to calls someone out on something? Is it wrong to call someone out on something? Is it only wrong when you use vulgarity? What do you guys think?

Looking peaceful!

You have probably noticed that The Stardoll Peace Project is all about helping you out. So I was thinking.. "Hmm.. How about a competition to kick things off?". After consulting Audrey, that can be arranged and arranged it has been.

Keeping with the Peace theme and on the subject of competitions, what better than to do a peaceful make-up competition?

And the prize, 100sd and instant make-up of the week with your face shown on the blog. All you need to do is design a peaceful style make-up.

Now you are interested, I'm sure you'll need some inspiration to start you off.

It can be as follows:


It can be like mine with light colours...

... It can be vivid blues and purples ...

... You can use flowers, bows or in general accessories...

... Or, it can be full on Peace.

The best way for you to submit your entry is to printscreen it and post the link in the comment section.


You have until September 15th to enter. I look forward to seeing all your entries!


Peace out.

Hello,

My name is Sara (sarabear123) and I am one of the many new writers for this new (and quite frankly fan-friggin-tastic) new blog. I have read over all of their post and I am honored to know I was chosen to write among such great and talented writers.

I am not going to really say much about myself like how I look or the basic facts I always say to describe myself as a person. You can click on the link I gave about (just click on my username) and you will be transferred to my little corner on Stardoll where you can learn all of that and more about me. Or you can visit Big Brother Stardoll, the blog I am currently writing for as the New Features presenter. I am also working on a fashion line with one of my closest of friends, it is called The Aura Assemblage. But you see, the thing is, on those two blogs, I am not able to express my thoughts, my ideas, my innermost feelings of what happens. That all changes now.

You see, I have always loved to write. I have won ribbons and been acknowledged for some of what I have written. But the only reason I was able to receive those honors was because I was able to pour my heart and soul into them. That is what I hope to do with each post here. I want to be able to share with you, the reader, my idea on how peace can be attained, or how I think respect is one of the keys to every coming close to peace, or maybe tell you all my thoughts and feelings on the inequality we see all around us, Stardoll and in real life. That is after all what this blog is meant for, to shine some light on the rejected artists, the writer's denied well deserved fame, the future fashion icons shoved into the dark little corner of Stardoll because they just don't have the money to spend to get their name out there.

Yes, sadly, that is what many of the problems we face all around us is mainly centered on: 

M-O-N-E-Y

Wouldn't the world be a greatly different place if money was not viewed so highly or just not even here. Greed, social ranking, and so much more would be completely non-existent if money was not in the picture. I can tell you one thing, peace would be much more attainable. 

Sadly, there is nothing we change greatly change. We can't just totally deny the use of money. There really is nothing wrong with it. It's when a person treasures it beyond all else that the problem forms. So all I can hope, is that someday enough people are going to realize that the little green pieces of paper don't mean as much as they think they do and move on with their lives. So, as I share with you my thoughts on this issue, I run out of what to say and thus bring this post to a close. I have enjoyed writing it and look forward to hopefully many more I can write in the future. So I bid you all a short farewell until next time. If anyone has anything that they would like me to post about, please either comment below or send me a private email. I will happily post about it. So until next time.

Keep Loving and be peaceful.
 ~ Reece

Peace out.



I am a enthusiastic writer and it shows. I have a passion for the arts. Anything to do with drawing, writing, music and drama, I'm there and all over it. Although, today the weather is totally grey and rainy which often effects my mood.


You may be thinking, where's the introduction? Who even are you? Well I have never been good at introducing myself, not on blogs anyways.


Who am I?
I am a believer of peace and love. I don't believe that any good can come out of wars, gossipers and arguments.


I don't feel it necessary to give you the ins and outs of my life. If I did it would simply perceive my as a strange character. In many ways, I become a different person on Stardoll and whilst blogging. I am more loved on Stardoll between my friends than in real life as far as I can tell. I use Stardoll to get away from personal fears of real life and I find myself staring at useless pixels for hours upon hours literally, getting busy doing nothing.


A blog like this has been needed for a while and I'm glad Audrey started it all up as a victim of bullying herself, I believe she understands the whole concept of the idea.


Some may know me however, the majority will not. I do admit, my past experience as a blogger has not been widely known. I used to work for Belle-Stardoll, Stardoll Vlogs and occasionally, I write on Underneath Stardoll's The Voice. At this moment I write for two blogs, this one and Outrage Productions. I mostly write about fashion or I give out advice to people which is extremely different to talking peace.


Nevertheless, I thought this blog is a blog I have been waiting for. A place that if I missed the chance to join, I wouldn't get my say and even if I did, it wouldn't be heard.

I am (sometimes) a strongly opinionated person and I let it come through. In real life, I am a loud person and I do say things that might intercept with others but that's just me.

Atleast this time I will be seen and heard. Stardoll needs peace and we will get it. No doubts.


Are you a believer of peace?
What do you think Stardoll needs?



Peace out.



- Megan

What is Peace?


 

I'm not your normal cliché writer my style is different. 

I consider myself a perfectionist, and that is demonstrated frequently through my music, art, writing, work, and basically anything I do. I depict my many interests through the fact of putting all my effort into my work. I have had my artwork and writing pieces showcased in museums and such, representing my passion for those subjects. 

I expect nothing below my best for myself. 
For introductions, most people state their outer appearances, their likes and dislikes and those small features. I refuse to do such, as I am a person who believes that simple details as though do not impact our inner image in a justified way.

Simply, without a thought, I could list the things about me, but as I sit here, typing on my computer while it's raining outside, but I chose to present myself in a way that you would probably appreciate more. Honestly, I don't read posts about people and their introduction about what they look like. Hopefully mine is different.

Perchance this blog was meant for expansion on the Stardoll peace topic, but we all have our angles of view. That's what makes blogs intriguing to me, variety of writing and skills.
I must say, I favored the idea of this blog from the start. I immediately fell in love with the idea. Normal talented bloggers are caught up with Stardoll News, not putting much effort in their posts. Of course blogging Stardoll news is important, and I do enjoy it, but we compete on who gets the news posted first. I do write on Stardoll news blogs, such as Underneath Stardoll, and Stardoll Local News, but at the end of the day, it's refreshing to share my ability and love for writing on a topic I feel strong about. 

Yes, peace is a topic I love to write about. Perhaps I may not be the most, what you may call "peaceful", but in retrospect, who is? I mean, not even the most quite people could be peaceful. Even though they are not expressing their feelings aloud, they could be thinking of something very terrorizing in that mind of theirs. 
My point is, nobody is perfect; therefore nobody is 100% in sync with the endless amount of creatures, or even the billions of humans on this planet. Yes, I am aware that this statement is over exaggerated, but in the end not many people realize this.

The theme of this blog is peace, is it not? I did some research for the definition of "peace". We all have diverse words and styles of writing; therefore it calls for many definitions, in my opinion.

From the Merriam-Webster's dictionary, the definition is:

peace noun \ˈpēs\

1: a state of tranquillity or quiet: as a : freedom from civil disturbance b : a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom <a breach of the peace>
2: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions
3: harmony in personal relations
4: a state or period of mutual concord between governments b : a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity
5—used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell

 Do I agree with this? We have all our definitions; maybe mine differs, maybe not.
This definition is from the New Oxford American Dictionary:

peace |pēs|
noun
1 freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility : you can while away an hour or two in peace and seclusion.
• mental calm; serenity : the peace of mind this insurance gives you.
2 freedom from or the cessation of war or violence : the Straits were to be open to warships in time of peace.
• [in sing. ] a period of this : the peace didn't last.
• [in sing. ] a treaty agreeing to the cessation of war between warring states : support for a negotiated peace.
• freedom from civil disorder : police action to restore peace.
• freedom from dispute or dissension between individuals or groups : the 8.8 percent offer that promises peace with the board.
3 ( the peace) a ceremonial handshake or kiss exchanged during a service in some churches (now usually only in the Eucharist), symbolizing Christian love and unity. 

Again, we all have our definitions. I may not be as talented as writing definitions as Noah Webster, but I can sure experience the definitions just as much, if that makes sense. Words cannot describe everything, and when I ask people for aid on a word I am unable to think of, I stutter and remind myself of the fact that there aren't words to simply portray everything.

Peace is a controversial subject, as well as pretty much any other word similar. This word could be described in endless ways, expanding the horizon of the writers here at the Stardoll Peace Project.

 As I continue here on this blog, more in depth answers and questions will be examined and find answers to these projects. I indeed wish the best of luck to the writers and look forward to writing here on the Stardoll Peace Project. 

One thing I would like to add is a question of the day, or QOD. Just something to think about, and today's question, may be not the most creative, is:

"What's your definiton of peace?"

I come in Peace...[Literally.]

Hello y'all!

No, I'm not from Georgia or anything. I just thought that would catch your attention. :]
I'm SO VERY HAPPY to be part of The Stardoll Peace Project.
It is Such an honor.

To tell the truth, when i got the GB message that i was to become a writer, i pretty much did a happy dance.

Okay, enough about that. Lets start my Intro Post! :D

My Username is: Mannyperry And this is my medoll:

i've been on stardoll since December, and i have to say, 
It's my relaxation site.
Like no joke, I come back from a busy day of tenth grade, finish my homework, and Go on this site.

Okay, now lets get serious.
I'm a serious believer that someone can gain Fame without paying a penny on a virtual website. Yes, I know Superstars and Royalty get voted a lot more than superstars, and its because they paid. But I, on the other hand could easily pay. But i prefer not to. I want to represent the group of Non Superstars who trully Cannot pay. But even though they lack this obvious thing, They still TRY to do their best.

I love exploring stardoll and discovering creative Non Superstars and Superstars everywhere.
I brought up something on 'The Stardoll Voice' you might have seen before:

Yes, The MSW worthy. 
I want to bring it to The Stardoll Peace Project as well.

Would YOU like to be presented?

Anyway, I bet you i will have an awesome time posting for you guys.

and remember,
I always come in peace :]
