I wanted to formally introduce myself since I posted my last article about cyber bullying. If you haven’t read it I strongly advise you do if you have ever been bullied. Well, to start, my name is Abby, but some people spell it Abbi or Abi it really doesn't matter as long as you know my name. I'm an EN Smeet Journalist. I'm currently in 11th grade and I study for nursing in another school. I go to two schools one is VO-tech, the other is my regular high school. I get busy sometimes more than I care to and it pulls me away from Smeet. I want to work with kids with cancer after high school. Planning on college.
I'm a Pisces Aquarius I was born on a cusp. My Chinese zodiac is the tiger. I'm a quiet and shy person in real life. I don't talk much usually as I just listen to music on the bus and ignore the chatter of children. My writing is mostly done when listening to music because it inspires me. I'm a very creative writer and my opinions are very strong. I will be writing articles about many things I wish to voice my opinion on.
I deal with three types of depression. I dislike being pushed in a corner or messed with because I'll pounce like an alley cat. I get easily claustrophobic even on the Internet I’ll get that way and I'm not sure why. My phobia is when I'm in a small place like on a bus and the person sitting next to me keeps bumping into me on purpose. Then, I get anxious, paranoid, stressed and nervous. I start tensing my jaw too. It is really weird how it gets set off. I talk more on the internet then real life unless you know me very well in real life. I'm very outgoing and talkative. I have grown a lot in my 17 years and gone through hardships. Whether you need a friend or someone to listen to you I will. I may not be a counselor, but I can help with people's problems to an extent. I don't like when people make jokes about serious things like cancer, diabetes, etc. I'm a very serious person so if I find a joke offensive or might think it is, tend to snap. I don't have many friends for a reason. Mainly because not many people understand me or don't accept my opinions. I usually don't get on Smeet untill the weekends and or holiday breaks. I play another game too called Imvu, but message me and I'll get back to you. Honestly I know this may of seemed boring and a waste of time for me to introduce myself, but I think it was necessary because people have the right to know who I am. Have a wonderful day everyone and happy Smeeting.

Hi Smeeters! Your craziest writer returns, and this time doesn’t come alone, but together with the beautiful writer Cris (Spain-Latin). Together we have had the pleasure of interviewing our admin, Wild Rover. Don’t stop reading!
Cris: What are your functions as an admin of the EN and INT servers?
Tuo and I are basically here to help all the EN/INT Smeeters with any problems they may have to ensure they enjoy their time on Smeet as much as possible! We deal with technical issues, user issues and also help with the Facebook and Blog pages.
So there are quite a few aspects to the job, and of course acting silly to amuse the Smeeters is a lot of fun too!
Joscri: We know you as a very funny admin. Tell us a joke that makes you laugh.
What did the baby chick say when it found an orange in its nest? – ‘Look what marmalade’.
Go on. Laugh. You know you want to.
Cris: What’s the meaning of your nickname, Wild Rover? Why did you choose it as your nickname in Smeet?
Haha there is honestly no reason for the ‘Wild’ part, I just needed a first name and it came into my head! ‘Rover’ is named after my favourite football team in England, but I won’t reveal exactly which team because it is too embarrassing…
Joscri: What’s your favorite sport? What sports do you play?
My favourite sport, like all good Englishmen, is cricket. I’m sure half the Smeeters I speak to don’t even know how it works, but I can assure you now it is the most exciting and captivating sport on the planet. Sort of.
I also play football here in Berlin. Just like when England play Germany in the World Cup though. The Germans always win in the end. Very annoying.
Cris: Do you like cooking? What is your most impressive dish?
Um…well…I don’t mind it. My best dish is Chicken Enchiladas, but normally when I can’t be bothered I just stick a frozen pizza in the oven. That still counts as ‘cooking’, right? Please say it counts!
Joscri: We know that you and the admin Olivia are friends, so how would you define her?
Olivia? Who is that?
Haha of course, all the Smeet admins get on really well because they are all lovely people, and Olivia is no exception!
Cris: What do you like most about Smeet? Why?
The opportunity to speak with people from all over the world and get lots of different perspectives is something I enjoy immensely.
Joscri: Which color would you choose, pink or green?
Are they my only options? Really? Ummm…probably green? Yeah, I don’t dislike pink, but green just edges it!
What advice would you give to the Smeeters, specially to the EN and ES users that will read your interview?
Behave and make my life easier! (Oh, and have fun and all that jazz ;))
Today we know a little more one of the funniest admins of Smeet. Thank you for always being there and thanks for everything. Wild, Wild, Wild, is great!

A different set of traditions from a different part of the world!
Philippine Wedding Superstitions:
Brides shouldn’t try on her wedding dress before the wedding day or the wedding will not push through.
Knives and other sharp and pointed objects are said to be a bad choice for wedding gifts for this will lead to a broken marriage.
Giving arinola (chamberpot) as wedding gift is believed to bring good luck to newlyweds.
Altar-bound couples are accident-prone and therefore must avoid long drives or traveling before their wedding day for safety.
The groom who sits ahead of his bride during the wedding ceremony will be a henpecked husband.
– A flame extinguished on one of the wedding candles means the one on which side has the unlit candle, will die ahead of the other.
Throwing rice confetti at the newlyweds will bring them prosperity all their life.
The groom must arrive before the bride at the church to avoid bad luck.
It is considered bad luck for two siblings to marry on the same year.
Breaking something during the reception brings good luck to the newlyweds.
The bride should step on the groom’s foot while walking towards the altar if she wants him to agree to her every whim.
A bride who wears pearls on her wedding will be an unhappy wife experiencing many heartaches and tears.
An unmarried woman who follows the footsteps (literally) of the newlyweds will marry soon.
Dropping the wedding ring, the veil or the arrhae during the ceremony spells unhappiness for the couple.
In early Filipino custom, the groom-to-be threw his spear at the front steps of his intended’s home, a sign that she has been spoken for. These days, a ring suffices as the symbol of engagement
Filipino Weddings reflect the strong traditions of family (& extended family) and symbolism. Thus, Filipino wedding ceremonies typically involve many people, and the wedding rituals typically "speak" to the couple personally.
The wedding outfits
Brides wear a white wedding dress that has become popular in the last hundred years or so with America’s influence in the Philippines. For men, the barong tagalog is the traditional Filipino formal wear. It is a cool, almost transparent, embroidered shirt, made from silky pina or jusi. It is worn untucked, over black pants, with a white t-shirt underneath.
