Here is an update of The Jumpstart Project -

Tried a home made facial made from ingredients I already have in my home. Here is the recipe from
Spa Index Honey Oatmeal Facial 
Honey is a natural antiseptic whereas the oatmeal absorbs excess oil and acts as a natural exfoliant.
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons of honey

Finely grind the or process the oatmeal in a blender or food processor. Set aside. In a small bowl, stir honey and yogurt. Then add the oatmeal. Mix thoroughly until a smooth paste consistency has been reached. Smooth over your face and neck, leave on for fifteen minutes and rinse off with warm daily. Can be used daily.

This is a weird one. I actually did not make an effort to talk to someone. Pet peeve I have is fathers who don't even make an effort to talk to you and you are always the one to make the effort because it's the polite thing to do.  I got into the elevator with the dad who never talks (no, how are you? how's school, nada) and forced myself to say absolutely nothing and got off without saying goodbye, have a night evening. NOTHING.!!! Just a follow up, the next time I saw him he actually spoke first. Well, see he can make effort, dammit.
