So I guess now that all the actual seniors are gone and graduate in 3 days, that makes me and my class senior now…and that kind of makes me waNNA JUMP FOR JOY. I guess I’m a little nervous to start my last year of high school and go to college soon but I’m also really excited to get the heck out of here honestly. I can’t wait to go out on my own and experience the real world and meet new people.
I have recently been feeling a little bit of writer’s block when it comes to my blogs. I haven’t had any creative breakthroughs, or even any ideas for that matter. So I turned to googling writing prompts for as much inspiration as I could find. That is when I stumbled upon this gem, “Take your favorite TV show character of all time and put him or her into a different show that you enjoy.” And I immediately knew who I would write about, and what new TV show I would send him to. I would send Dwight K. Schrute, from The Office, to participate in the MTV dating show called Are You The One. If you have never seen any of these shows just know Are You The One is the last place you would ever find a man like Mr. Schrute. Dwight is a beet farmer/paper salesman/volunteer policeman if that helps you imagine him at all. And as far as I’ve seen the requirements to even be on this drama filled dating show are a nice body, gorgeous face, and a whole lot of attitude. And while Dwight sure can have some sass, he is no where near the kind of man those producers usually put on the show. It would just greatly amuse me to see Dwight attempt to start a relationship with any of those girls, and to see their reactions when he starts telling them about himself and his incredibly interesting beet farming life.
I have recently started watching the new show 13 Reasons Why on Netflix, and it is really hitting me hard. I have only known one person who thought that ending their own life was the only way out of life, but I had no idea what they were going through when they were going through it. It really makes me hope that if anyone is ever feeling as alone as Hannah was, that they find someone or something to hold onto until they are in a better place. And I aspire to be someone that could be there for someone who is feeling that way. The show is very emotional, and makes you feel for everyone who knew Hannah (except Bryce and Courtney). If any of my friends are faced with the situations she was in, or are just feeling extremely lonely I want them to know that they can tell me, and that I will be there for them no matter what everyone else is saying. I believe this show can be very eye opening for anyone who hasn’t thought about how real suicide is and how much it affects everyone involved with the victim. It should not be taken lightly.
We have just recently finished up reading the book 12 Years A Slave, and I thought it was about time I wrote about it. I’m not going to lie it wasn’t my favorite book of all time, or by far the most interesting, but it was very eye opening. You hear about slavery in school, but you never really go into the gruesome details about how badly some of these people were treated. It’s really shocking actually to see how a person can be so unexpectedly torn from his family and thrown into a new life full of hardships, labor, and cruel treatment for 12 whole years. I will never understand why people thought it was okay to degrade and undermine a whole population of human beings, just like themselves, because of the color of their skin. I’m a little nervous to watch the movie because I know it will make me very emotional and honestly be a little hard to watch.
I have been thinking a lot lately about how messed up our generation’s views of love is. People have gotten so used to seeing divorce and unsuccessful relationships that people don’t fight as hard for love anymore. But teenagers need to realize that fighting for a marriage is different than fighting for a high school relationship. When you’re married you are committed, and have vows of love to one another; in high school you are having fun. If your significant other hurts you, or does you wrong there is nothing wrong with breaking up with them right then and there. I see way too many girls staying with the same person because they “love” them, and it’s not that easy to break up with someone you love like that. Or because they think it would be giving up on the relationship. I also hate seeing people investing all their time in finding someone else instead of focusing on themselves. Don’t get me wrong I think boyfriends or girlfriends (if they’re the right one) can help you be a better you and express yourself, but no one can make you more you than YOU!
I can’t wait until summer. And not just because that means no more school, and no more getting up early, but because I will finally have a lot of time on my hands to do things for myself and with my friends. I made some of the best memories last summer with all of my friends and I can’t wait to do it again this year. I know this post is a little short but I’m not sure how else to say just how excited I am to be FREE!!!!
We all have those days
We don’t know what to do
or what to say
We do all we can just to get to the next day
We all have those days
Where everything is perfect
and falling into place
Other times things are neither perfect or terrible
but simple and right
We all have those days
buts that’s just life.
Okay so I know I should never complain about being hungry when there are starving people all over the world, but I am always hungry. And I am not just saying that, I think I have a problem. I can eat a full meal and still want chips another serving, and ice cream after. I think my body is incapable of being full or satisfied when it comes to food. Luckily I am active and burn a lot of calories in a day or I would be in trouble. So basically I can never stop eating, and I’m sick and tired of being hungry all the time SOS.
So it’s gotten to that point in the year where I have no more motivation. I already have a hard time being interested in my classes at the start of the year let alone the 3rd and 4th quarters. Every single assignment I get now is a FORCE. I will have homework in every single class and still do nothing over the weekend, no matter how many times I tell myself to get off my lazy butt and do something. Basically I just really can’t school anymore.
I’m going to take this blog post to tell everyone how thankful I am for the blessing I have in my life. My family, my friends, the house I live in, and all of the other things I have going for me in my life. Sometimes I feel like I take these things for granted, in my head I see them as simple and not necessarily as blessings. But I now realize how truly lucky I am to have two parents that really love me, as well as friends that love me too. Not a lot of people are lucky enough to have those things. So from here on out I am going to try to be more grateful, and make sure I make my thankfulness known to the people who make my life so wonderful.
