Something worth reading

So today I was struck by something that I’ve thought about a lot before. First of all asa disclaimer I would like to say that I hope no one is offened by this post, that is not my intention. This is my life, there is no place to go after, this is the life I live, it’s not some story book, when it’s over I’m not going to look back down on my family and see them, there isn’t another chapter . I cannot live forever. When the Sun explodes I will be deas, I will not know when this is, someday I will pass on, close my eyes for the last time. I think this is something that people often forget. Everyone takes life for granted, no one really stops to think about how someday life will end. I’m sorry if I brought anyone down with this post, the thing about life is that we are only here for a short time so we should make the most of it. Have a great day, and no i’m not being sarcastic, I do want you to enjoy today ūüôā

Chicken Fried, and other simple stuff

Today I was flipping channels on the radio when a song on 99.5WGAR¬†caught my attention. It was called Chicken Fried by some country band. After listening for awhile I realized this song wasn’t about loosing a¬† girl, or going home, it was simply about the little things that make life so livable. Those jeans that fit perfectly, a cold (root)beer on a Friday night, and of course fried chicken. I really like this song because of the message it sends. I think it’s message is so true, in life we always take advantage of the little things that make us happy, and sometimes it’s really important to slow down and recognize this stuff.

Nice Cozy Fire… ahhhh

Oh I love Christmas time, today my sister, mommy, and daddy, and I went to get our Xmas tree. Now with a fully decorated house, and fresh piney scent wafting from my living room, my holiday spirit is in FULL SWING !!! So excited for Christmas, although I also love Hannukah  ( not sure about the spelling) because my classmates bring in those delicious little gelt pieces. HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!!

Watership Down

Today I was reading AFTER THE FLOOD by Margaret Atwood, and I started thinking, wow this book is phenomenal. Then I realized that these authors are amazing, think of how many times you’ve read a book and just been totally immeresed in the plot, or been totally wowed by how mysterious and developed the characters are. Well, here’s the light bulb that just went off in my head, These are people, they have this in their head, it’s thier original ideas. Imagine having Percy Jackson sitting in your head, or creating a future where North America is divided into 13 provinces, and people gather to watch others fight to the death. Margaret Atwood is a great example of this, her books are dark, errie, and they really make you think, but the thing is, you can easily see them becoming true with one slip of the human finger. Her books reflect a world in the future where people have been demolished by a flood, but there is no water in the flood. It showed me how thoughts and ideas really are how things begin, how rumors can effect more than the subject of the rumor. AFTER THE FLOOD also showed me how fear can spread. Fear has so much control it really is frightening. Our minds are so much more than we think they are, so, so much more. Don’t underestimate what’s in your head, not really what you think everyday, but how your emotions shape impulsive descisions, and how in¬† a subconscious mind we have emotions we don’t even know we have. Thought- provoking huh??

Just One of Those Dreams…

I had a dream¬†last night, one of those dreams where you want it to be a book so you can just keep reading, and then there can be a sequel, then a movie. Well this was one of those dreams, and I really cannot wait to go to sleep tonight to see if I dreeam it again. I love continual dreams, and I’ve had a couple of them, it’s so cool to go to sleep, then wake up and be like, WHOA I just DREAMED that, it really is amazing what your mind can do when you really think you’re alseep. Sometimes that weirds me out, I mean I one of those people who love control, and knows how to get it, so natuarally it’s hard for me to know that I have no control what happens in my¬† sleep. Sometims my dreams help me notice things about stuff around me, things like my family,¬† my school, my view on certain issues, and it really is impressive. Sometimes though dreams get scary, I hate nightmares ( nightmears?) it scares me enough that my mind can be awake when I’m asleep, but the fact that my mind can suprise and scare me, is downright terrifying! So think about this, and SLEEP WELL!

B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L spells…???

Dictionary.com says that the definition of beautiful is having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, or think about. So really beauty isn’t what American media portrays it to be, beauty isn’t just clothes, hair, body shape/ size, and tonned skin. Each culture has it’s own idea of beauty and when you¬†visit other places, it’s important to keep that in mind.¬†It’s important to remember that beauty is also on the inside, how you act toward others, your attitude about life, and the size of your heart. LOVE+KINDNESS= Beauty. But beauty is also in the world around us, in the trees, the sunsets, the mountains. Sometimes it’s worth just stopping and looking at for a while.

CTP…

Ugh if there’s one thing i hate more than anything it’s CTP tests. The Child Torture Program as I call it, is just an excuse for teachers to demand our attention and read the same part of the test over and over again. But on the bright side I’m now almost done with my book for the English project.

Yay for Snow!!!

Yay for¬† the snow! This morning as I walked into school I was bombarded by fluffy flakes that actually kinda hurt. Te only thing that upset me about this is that my mom always drops me off before the curb so I had to walk a little farther and I didn’t have a hat, or gloves to protect myself. By the time i wrestled my ear warmers out of my bag it was too late and I was already cold, and punching the digits into the bell tower to enter.

Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!! Some of us may travel far for Thanksgiving, I for one will not be traveling at all year, staying right here at home with my¬†family coming to me, because I don’t do long car rides well unless accompanied by someone my age ( being the youngest by 6 years really does suck!) so everytime we go somewhere I’m always madly texting my friends, which makes my Mom annoyed, which makes my brother grumpy, which makes my sister talk to cover up all of it, which overall makes everyone really wish the car ride was over ( even if it’s only like 45 minutes, this can happen.)
