Check Out The EP "Evolve" by Abstract By Create

In a sea of artists using catchy beats to rhyme about they're cheating ways, it's always refreshing when an artist is talking about real one on one love. That real love vibe is what 19 year old singer Abstract By Create gives us on his song Affinity.

Affinity isn't just about finding love in one significant other though. His lyrics speak about how when one man doesn't respect his woman, another man can find the value in her. When one man makes that woman his past, another man can make her his future.

It essentially gives us women who have been hurt a chance to know there's still hope for love. Listen below.

Affinity is just one of the smooth soul touching songs off of Abstract By Create's album Evolve, which can be found on Soundcloud. On this album, he gives us a peak into the relationships that have formed his thought process on what love looks like. He also wrote his own music. Listen and let me know what you think.

To The Men "Liking" Every Photo of A Woman Without Ever Saying A Word To Her

This is for the men that scroll through social media pages, follow women, and only click the like button on the women's selfies. They acknowledge nothing else except for that woman's appearance.

There are men out there, creepy men. They sit behind the computer desks, or with their phones in their hands scrolling through social media. Well, we all scroll through social media way too much, but they do it creepily.

They don't use their social medias openly creepily like traditional perverts that let you know they see every inch of your appealing figure. Nah! These new creepy men use the "like" button. They like every one of your pictures they see, but they don't like every single picture you post. They only click the like button on the pictures with your face or body in it. Nothing else you post matters.

You can put up posts saying you're suicidal, having car troubles, trying to upgrade your financial status, etc. and they won't acknowledge any of it. But they'll acknowledge that picture you post where your breasts are breathing in that cute shirt, the picture you posted of you smiling, and any other random selfie you decide to put up. If they don't notice it right away, they'll scroll past the 50 pictures you've posted in the past week just to like that selfie they missed.

I hate that shit.

Wait, nah. I'd like it if they were admiring physical appearances and had some good conversation to go with it. I'd like a little flirting every now and then. But the ninjas that do this mess never have anything to say. They're boring perverts. They're just plain boring perverts scrolling through social media for the wrong reasons. Or maybe it's the right reasons in their minds.

Seriously, I've actually messaged a few of them before. There were men I'd start conversations with on Facebook years ago because they loved that fucking poke button. I hated the poke button. What was the point of it? Does it still exist? I hope not. Anyway, I'd messaged them because they utilized that button so much, but then their conversations were dryer than New Mexico in the middle of the summer.

Now there's the like button. It's on every social media site/app. On Instagram it's shaped like a heart and people love to utilize it. Most of the time it's not a problem. We (people like me) want those likes, but I want conversation too. Maybe because it's other women, we understand each other without tons of conversation to go with it. But when it comes to these men, I'm at a loss. I see the likes on only the photos with me in them and I think, "Creepy."

But I guess I should be okay with this. There are men drooling over my photos and I don't wear a ton of makeup, do booty poses, pose naked, or kids other women for them to notice. But still, some interesting conversation every now and then would be nice, so y'all men wouldn't seem so weird.

When Trying To Be Cheap Goes Right

If the internet has taught me anything, it's that you should never order cheap clothes online. Stick with Forever 21, Rainbow, and Wet Seal. Buying clothes from unknown stores on the internet usually leads to plastic clothes too sizes too small. Well, actually that's never happen to me but I won't either now that I'm aware.

Wait!!! If you can't order cheap clothes online, what can you order? Books are one item. Remember when we were kids and book prices started at $10 and the really good books were $15? Now think about how the price of living has gone up. For some reason the price of books haven't. In fact thanks to self publishing (that's what I did) the prices for really good reads are now $10 and under. Some authors are so desperate to get their books out, they are giving them away from free on Amazon. So you can get cheap books online now. Of course, you have to have a passion for reading to take advantage of this.

You can also order cheap music online. Who buys $9.99 and up C.D.s anymore from the stores when iTunes is readily available? Yeah, iTunes has spoiled most of us. My collections proves that I'm an addict.

With all of the internet usage for cheap items, there is something else important that I discovered can be purchased online. It's computer chargers. I have a Mac computer, which I love dearly, but I've never loved the charges. I'm going on four years with my Mac and I just purchased my third charger. The computer chargers aren't cheap. At Best Buy and Walmart the one for my computer is $79. However for this last charger I refused to pay that amount knowing it'll only last me a good year or so. So I went looking online and got lucky.

Yes, I purchased a Mac computer charger online, actually on eBay, and it worked out. Instead of $79, it was $30.

However, even though I went a cheaper route, it doesn't mean you should too. The results aren't the same for everyone.
