I will not ask you to cook, follow a ten-steps routine, go to an anger management course, call your psychiatrist, drink until you fall under the table and sleep, take some medicines, drink herbal tea, eat chocolate. I have never followed any of these, at least not when angry, moody, and needed calming down. I tend to swear a lot :)... but I do have another excellent remedy for angry, frustrated, annoyed, stressed, overworked people out here and there.Music! - did i hear a disappointed awwwww?

You can see my portfolio, including music at Portfolio continue reading
Hi,I decided to write few words with the hope that some one will read this as I have some questions actually.I got my account set about three weeks ago and since then I have 92 images online with about200+ in the waiting list.My question is that I maybe did something wrong with my profile, because I have no views/downloads.

I've lived in Detroit for 9 years this May, and I and my husband and son finally started venturing Downtown for the past years. There is so much stigma and negative speak about Detroit, that I was nervous to go down there at all, but it hasn't proved to be disappointing at all.
