27 Club

Man oh man… The 27 Club.  A club in which no one should want to enter except it continues to expand.  The 27 Club is a list of popular musicians, artists, or actors that have died at the age of twenty seven.  Most often the deaths are due to drug overdoses, alcohol abuse, or even violence such as homicide or suicide.  It’s truly remarkable to how many musicians and artists have died at this age.  It’s unfortunate to see talented and artistic souls take their lives, or let drugs get to them.  It’s sad to think that tomorrow may never come, or that the day is forever the same because they are too busy trying to chase the dragon.  They want to experience that initial high that ‘felt so good’ they indulge in more and more drugs to try and reach the dragon, which always consequently ends in overdosing.  It’s haunting to think that Jimi Hendrix once said, “It’s funny how people love the dead.  Once you’re dead, you’re made for life.”  It’s weird.  Once a popular musician dies, it seems as if they become more popular.  

“I’m so happy, ‘cause today I found my friends.  They’re in my head.” --Kurt Cobain

While today we are living, keep your family close and healthy.  Tomorrow is yet to come… Let us celebrate the dead.  

Life is certainly way too short and unpredictable.  Everything that has been has passed. Let’s keep growing.

27 Club is where we live fast, and die young.  Except even though they are no longer with us, keep listening to their music. :)

Blog 28

It seems crazy that we’ve successfully entered our 29th rotation.  I mean seriously despite how many times I’ve said in my blogs-- this year is FLYING by!!!!!!!!!!!!  Only a couple more weeks until summer.  I literally am lost for words, I don’t know what to write about sooooooooooooooooooo…… how’s your day going?  Oh wait.. I know what I can write about… A few weekends ago my family and I were all hanging out with close friends of ours—extremely typical.  We were listening to our record player where out of the blue ‘Tears for Fears’ began playing.  So my dad and his friend were looking at the cover joking around and began posing like the album cover….. SUPER CRINGY… Anyway, this ended up turning into a video where everyone started reenacting old album covers.  It turned out really funny, started off as a joke dancing in front of a green screen to pose like old album covers, to a video everyone can get second hand cringe from.  Feel free to check it out: https://youtu.be/ByZj1a-869g

Junior Year Ending Rotation 28

I'm super excited to be a senior. Most of my friends are really nervous about being seniors and graduating next year but I'm surprisingly very comfortable with the idea of graduating and being on my own. I feel very independent and happy when I'm on my own and I think being in college will be really fun for me. I'm good at making friends with students and teachers and I work really well under pressure. My only downfall is that I'm not that good at keeping up with reading books but I think I can adjust when entering college. Oh well. I'm really excited to be a senior and enjoy all the perks that seniors entail.

The Crow is Gone and I Procrastinated on Week 26

So yeah, my crow friend took off. It's okay anyway because I had to shut the window a lot, it feels like February not two days from June! I think that is going to change this week though, although it seems like the weather is doing the opposite of what it should be doing lately. It's supposed to get warmer not colder, or at least it was last time I checked. It took me a bit over an hour to do week 25, but almost 2 to do 26. I really dragged my feet for some reason. I much preferred The Haunted Mind over We Have No Right To Happiness. I'm onto twenty seven now though, I'm making really good progress. Granted I had breaks for dinner and chores, so I think I'm still making good time, it'll all be done tonight. Tomorrow is my history project and Honor Society volunteering hours, Wednesday is binging House of Cards season five, and Thursday is more volunteering and awards night. I'm heading into week 27 with the Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 Soundtrack, and Looking Glass is some pretty good company for some good writing.

Vacation 2k17

This will be the first year in about 5 that I go on another vacation. I will be going on my first cruise in my life at 17 years old. The cruise will leave from Boston and travel to Florida, then take us to Bermuda. I had to get a passport since this will be my first time going out of the country since the only real vacations I have been on are to Florida. We will be leaving June 30th and coming back July 7th. It is a Friday to Friday vacation. I am very excited to go even though I have a fear of big boats even since I watched the movie Titanic. My mother talked to me about being on the boat and exclaimed that I cannot use my phone to connect with people back and America and that really scared me. I wouldn't be able to talk to anyone if anything were to happen. I am actually very happy to be going on this cruise because of how beautiful Bermuda is and I love seeing new places. I cannot wait to go and explore more of the world. I am very fortunate for the opportunity and happy that I get to do it with my family. The resort that we booked has many fun opportunities for people to take and create memories with. One of the opportunities/activities that the resort lets you do is swim with dolphins but charges you over two hundred dollars a person. It is crazy the amount but some people will pay it because they think it is such a rare opportunity. My family of five is going, me, my mom, my dad, and two sisters. They are bringing their significant others, so basically I am going to be alone. That is alright with me, I plan on getting super tan and enjoying myself. I hope that the time is take for the cruise to get here is fast bu the time the cruise comes, goes by very slow so I can savor every minute of the vacation.

Dissapointing Softball Season

This year the softball team for the high school went back to not making it to the state tournament after qualifying the season before for the first time in 8 years. Last year we had a record of 9-9 and qualified after the last game of the regular over a win against Bourne. This year we finished 8-12 which is one win away from qualifying. We started off very good, with a 6-2 record, but ended the season onward 2-10. We got into a slump, especially with hitting and could not find our way out. Every game that was close, we would always fall apart and could not find ourselves to finish on top. This year going in, we had high expectations for the outcome of the year, but unfortunately could not exceed or complete those. Our main goal to go out and compete when we step foot on that field every game and there was minimal games where we did not compete. We accomplished our goals of being a team that competed but could not come up with the ultimate goal of qualifying for the state tournament. We had better intentions to actually compete for the conference title this year but came up short in the second half of the season. We should have stayed strong and played harder but we did not. I did have a great season with all my teammates and had some great memories, definitely wish we could've delayed the ending of our season a tad bit longer. Hopefully next year we can make the town proud of the team and the standards we have for ourselves.

Septem Viginti Sex

After having finished Week 25, I'm glad I've finally gained the motivation to do the work I've putting off since my trip to California. It's a rather beautiful rainy day outside, pretty chilly. I have the windows open to let the light in and a blanket on over me as I write this at my desktop. It's nice to get this done. Crossing off the list that I had steadily been adding to for weeks without removing feels beautiful. I have only done this once, when I got everything done that I needed to before February break. I was the only one, and boy did it feel fantastic. I have a similar feeling now. There's a crow outside too that's cawing away, it's pretty nice. There's nothing like a breezy, cloudy day to inspire some deep-seated motivation to finally do work. It's nice that the crow is keeping me company too. Man do I love birds. Even crows, despite being pretty nasty and eating long dead carcasses.

The Meme Dark Age

It seems currently that we find ourselves in a meme dark age. While 2016 was a rough year for celebrities, it certainly was a bountiful year for memes. There were many image memes, many video-based memes, and plenty of great occurrences that turned into memes. However, while celebrities have fared a bit better so far this year, memes have taken the hardest hit of all. With a few horrible Spongebob memes grasping for significance, many of the current memes are counter-memes or ironic versions of old memes, such as Darn Danny or My Name Yeff. I fear this is the end of the meme. Well actually I don't fear it, I welcome it. Memes have become an animal that no longer belongs on this Earth, and if this is their demise, I can't say I'll truly be upset.

Summer 2k17

As the school year heads to an ending, I cannot be anymore excited to start the summer before senior year. This will be the first year I have a car to go anywhere during the summer, and I can already tell it will be a good one. I have already made many plans to go places and see things. I am excited that there is only three weeks left of school, including finals week where you will see me at the beach everyday if the weather permits. I cannot wait to start off my summer with a cruise, which will be my first vacation in a very long time. My sports schedule never allowed me to go on vacation without missing games or practices so I always put it off until the next time I was available which was never. I never could go during school vacations because those were during sports seasons. I hope to have one of the best summers, as there are more opportunities for me to go places and spend time with friends. I hope that my friends are up for fun days and long nights as much as I am. Of course I do still have summer basketball which I am so excited to start back up again, good thing its only 2-3 nights a week. I have a new job this summer which I am so grateful for because I hated my old one. Instead of working at Kool Kone, I now will work at the Black Dog warehouse in Wareham. I am really excited to be working there with great hours that go from 8 a.m to 4:30 p.m. I love that they have long hours so I can make more money to go places. I will be working with one of my friends which will make getting used to the routine a more smoother transition. I cannot wait for this summer to start and experience better days.

28

The past few days have been crazy! I just got back from my vacation to Texas and it was so much fun. It was mostly just to visit my family there, and to see my cousins graduation. It was so hot there while it was rainy and kind of crappy over here. We did so much in the few days we had together, and Im so happy I got to go. I went when I was 10, but I havent seen them in that long. It was also a great and very much needed break from school. I know that when I go back I will have a ton to make up but it will definitely be worth it.
We went to so many great food places like In-n-Out, Red Lobster, Sonic, and a few BBQ places. We stayed at home a lot and went outside with everybody on walks too. They live on a military base, and you can find everything you need on base. the only time we left was to go to the bigger restaurants, but even then they were only about 10 minutes away. There is also a creek that my cousin showed us and it was beautiful! It has a waterfall and you fun off of that and jump off into the creek at the bottom. The water was so clean and clear and it was such a blast. It was a really great vacation and it kind of set the mood for how I feel this summer will be; a lot of relaxing, having fun, and just being with people you love and really want to be around.

Rotation 28

Friday night into Saturday morning the National Honor Society had a tent at Relay for Life where we sold a balloon for a dollar. You popped the balloon and there was a note inside that told you what prize you can pick from the prize table. We also sold raffle tickets and raffled off a Red Sox blanket. This year was very quiet though because there was only about five or six other teams on the track when there was about thirty teams last year. It was an inconvenient weekend to hold the event because so many families have plans and/or go away for Memorial Day Weekend. Also, it rained most of the time so many people didn't want to stay out in the rain, so there were very few walkers. While it was an altogether unsuccessful weekend for Relay for Life, I did have fun hanging out with my friends and helping the community in the fight against cancer. Hopefully next year it is a better outcome and the rest of the community can participate.

Sometimes I wonder what dogs would say if they could talk.  Would they talk about the same things amongst themselves as humans do?  Or would they simply be competing to be the best boy to their owners?  Who knows, but I really like dogs.  They can just be so funny but always remain loyal.  I have two dogs, a golden retriever named Lincoln and and a black lab named Buddy.  In my opinion these names are super unoriginal but that doesn't mean I don't think they're good names still.  Lincoln is especially funny.  Lincoln holds entire soccer balls in his mouth by biting onto one end, and it just looks pretty funny.  You'd have to see it.  Dogs are cool.

What is a Soul?


Related image

What would you do to get the one thing you wanted in your life? Would you sell your soul to the devil or live out your life doing whatever it takes to get it with hard work and ambition. Will I tell you what I did I sold my soul to the devil some years ago for the one thing I thought I needed in life fame, fortune and money. I sold my soul for this I was at a real low 10 years ago I had found all my solutions at the bottom of a bottle. One day I got really hammered and had the great idea to end my sorrows but taking my own life. I planned to do it by swallowing some pills and drifting into and eternal sleep. So I finished the bottle of whatever I was drinking locked my door, put my favorite dress on made my bed and laid the pill out across the comforter. I sat on my bed crying because I knew right them it would be over, but before as I grabbed the pill and moved them toward my lips a hand stopped me from taking it they said their name was Azazel a prince of hell. He was a demon who's eye weren't the traditional black like you see in movies but bright yellow. he told me that it didn't have to end this way he said for a small price he could make all of my dreams come true. He said I would no longer have to suffer the life I have led but I could live an entirely new chapter if I just sign the contract he had in blood. So I smashed the bottle I had just finished a minute ago and cut my hand but before I the put my blood on the paper I asked: "what am I giving to you in return?". He replied, "Well in 30 years time I will come to collect at this time you have lived a full and rich life at this time I will collect your soul." In looked at him then at the contract and questioned just for a moment if I should sign the contract, then I looked back at the mirror and saw exactly where I had ended up and signed the contract. From the day I signed that contract I got everything I could have wanted, but now ten years later they don't see to make me happy because I now at the end of this road is death. I enjoyed my fabulous life for as long as I could but knowing that I traded my life for it makes me regret it because as I learned and grew I realized it wasn't what I wanted, not I look to the future hopeless because I gambled away something I didn't know was valuable. MY LIFE.

Manchester By the Sea

Written and produced by Matt Damon, Casey Affleck plays a janitor in Boston. When his bother dies from a heart attack, he leaves his son to be cared for by Lee (Casey Affleck.) Shocked his brother would do this he struggles to tackle being a father to Patrick(Nephew.) It is beautifully filmed and shows great views of Boston but in total is an extremely sad movie. It truly doesn't have a happy ending. I don't wanna spoil anything so all I can say is the ending it not what I expected. It was overall an amazing movie, that i'm sure to rewatch over and over again.

Summer: the Biggest Break of the Year or the Smallest?

Summer is coming up, thank God.  This has been the hardest year of my high school career and I NEED a break.  However, I'm not so sure this summer will be very relaxing.  Don't get me wrong it will be a great change from school, but I will be extremely busy.  Not only will I be visiting colleges and starting my applications, but I will be studying for SATs, I will be doing my summer work for my classes next year, I will be taking a pre-calculus class, and for two weeks I will be studying at Harvard University.  My summer will most definitely NOT be a break.  Then the question comes along of whether or not to apply for a summer job.  Most of my friends work, but my parents have always encouraged me to put school ahead of work and to put off getting a job.  Sometimes they complain when I ask for money, but then when I suggest getting a job they say I am already too stressed out as is.  So, to get a job or not to get a job?  That is the question.  I believe that a job would not only teach me necessary life skills, but it would also be really nice to have some money of my own.  However, on the other hand my parents are right, I am already really stressed and having a job would eliminate any free time I may have this summer.  Well, we'll see what happens.

The little things I love

Last time I wrote about the little things I hate. I figured it was only necessary to follow with the little things I love.
1) When I wake up, and I can hear the birds. I absolutely love when I wake up and the sun is shining brightly, and the sky is blue, and I can hear the birds chirping away. It starts my day off perfectly.
2) When I make my tea just right. I tend to put the same things in it every day, milk(or cream), and sugar, and if I am sick or it is allergy season, honey. That is for regular, any kind of breakfast tea, etc. Chamomile or other teas are different. However, there are just certain days when  the tea is just particularly right. It is the right amount of completely perfect.
3) When I witness a random act of kindness. From paying for someone's order behind you to helping up somebody who fell, seeing people who generally still care about others is reassuring.
4) When animals (especially young ones, like puppies or kittens) do that little hop-skip sort of jump? It is sort of like a mini-pounce they do when they think they are like 600 pounds when they are actually only 6 and they are playing.
5) When you are in a bookstore and you can bond with someone who is reading, has read, or is going to read the same book as you. Usually can bond over your mutual hatred for the villain, your love for the main character-er, expected plot twists, etc.

Prepare for the unexpected… blog 27 i guess

It makes me sick to think that sometimes people manipulate others for their own benefit—Would hurt others—Ugh it makes me nauseous.  I can’t even process and explain my emotions amongst such issue.  It sounds so vague and confusing but ughhghgjdjkgdogjkydkjfjkdhkjhfiuerg.  Imagine befriending someone who seems cool and chill right, like neat you rock.  But then out of the blue find out a deeeeeeeeeeeeep secret about them.  YIKES—OOF—GOTTA GOOOOOOOO.  And realizing the person you thought was cool was one big cover up.  A cover up to succeed or try to get what they wanted.  Wellllllll… gotta say people stink sometimes.  Just watch your backs bros & gals.

Why do We do What we Do?


Image result for question mark flower


Why do we care?  As humans, Why do we care so much when someone hates us?  Why do we care so much when we do not get the grade we want? Why do we bother to be the best and look the best?  Why do we stress? 
Day by day a our motivation is derived from the humanly trait of desiring the up most potential of our existence.  But what if we stop for a second and commit to who we are rather than who we want to be or what we feel we need to be.  Everyone seems to think that there is something better just a little farther up the path we walk.  But what if this path is a circle and you are at the perfect point? If you always continue walking and looking for the better would you even notice if it was right in front of you.  If you are happy with yourself than why do others words change your mindset?  There has to be a point when one realizes that some things should not get to you.  For I am not telling you to get to comfortable or be content but suggesting more appreciation and healthy curiosity.   
It truly is not worth it.  We spend more time fixing our hair in the mirror and changing ourselves than we do asking the important questions like Why do we do what we do?  

Unpredicatble Moment


 Image result for world map

I have never done anything unpredictable, but that changed today when I woke up, packed a bag, went to the airport and randomly bought a ticket to Chad, Africa. I have had this on my bucket list for years ever since I started the list. The idea on the list was I close my eyes take a dart and throw it at a world map and where ever it landed I would go. Well, mine landed on Chad, Africa. I had to act on my impulses face so as soon as I picked a bag, bought a ticket to Chad and drove to the airport. Once I had my nonrefundable ticket and was sitting in the airport waiting for my flight I decided to do just a little research on Chad before I landed. I have so far found some National Parks and lake HCad seem to be the biggest things to do here. It is a small poverty stricken country with no much to do. So I think that I will see some of the sights there then make my journey to  Egypt to see the Great pymaids since these country are so close to each other. There are a ton of things to do in Egypt that I can do to fill my trip because I said I owuld be their for at least a week. I plan on staying at on of the many resorts that have here in egypt. Once I get there I will trip advisor it to seee which one I can get their for the cheapest. There is so many things I can do in egypt and I have plans to complete as may as I can. I don't want to plan to much of the trip because I do want it to be my little adventure I have to navigate myself around which will be fun. This trip is so that I can get away froom the stress of my everyday life so that I can gain some control and perspective on my life so that I can back home I can feel grounded and centered. I plan that when I get back to have learned some things about my life an finaly figure out what I want. I know I am putting a lot of pressure on  myself for this trip but I am not going to focus on this while I am gone.

26

Everybody has probably written about all the tests they have taken within the past two weeks, but youre about to read another one! I have taken three AP exams and I had the SAT test. as you know the AP tests are three hours long, and the SAT went from 7 am to 1:30 pm. that was horrible. I am really nervous about my scores but i am trying to not worry too much. I have had an extremely stressful couple of weeks and i do not want to do this again next year. The tests were more or less not as bad as i thought they would be though, which is good. but they just take forever and now i am so behind on my school work and am stressing about my scores. I hate testing, i understand it is kind of the only way to see like a huge mass of people and see who really "got" the concepts. But still, it is such a pain in the butt.
The environmental one was pretty good actually. The english wasnt too bad but i do thing i made some mistakes, and im not so sure about the multiple choice. Calculus was good until the last 4 open responses, then things started to get really difficult and confusing and i couldnt even do half of it! Calculus is such a hard subject, but i am very grateful that i can take it in high school because taking it in college would be even harder and also Mrs Cavicchi makes it a lot better. she is such a sweetheart. Well anyway, testing is hard and i guess thats why its such a high class to take, they have to make the tests that difficult.

Space Travel

Something that I find interesting about space travel and the future of it is how time would manifest in the actual transportation of people throughout the universe.  Assuming energy was no longer a concern, and people could travel at or near the speed of light, things would be a lot different than they are now.  For example, if one group of people were shipping something to another part of the galaxy, there would be a new president by the time they reached the other planet they intended to go on, and the person receiving the package could be dead simply because of how long things like this take.  However, the people onboard the ship going extremely fast would only experience a few days of time compared to what would be years to everyone moving at regular speed.  I always thought this was interesting.  The people on board the ship wouldn't been age, and they would actually be experiencing time differently than everyone else in the universe.  So will long term space travel ever be a reality? Likely.  Will it differ than travel in ways we never would have thought? Absolutely.

Tests (pt. 2)- Week #27

I can't remember whether or not I have already made a blog titled tests but i'm pretty sure that I have. Anyways, welcome to another blog post, it might be part two but if I am wrong this could very well be part 1. Yesterday I finished my last big test of the year (other than finals) and I am more ready than ever to have summer. Now that i finished all of those hard tests I just feel like school should be over, but we have another month and a week (about) left. I think that the SATs were relatively easy. On the other hand, I am on the line with whether or not I passed my calculus exam, I really hope I did. And English I definitely think I got a 3 on. If I passed any of my AP exams I definitely did not get any more than a 3. I am not mentally prepared for my finals yet though, because those are a whole other battle that I do not feel like facing at all at the moment. I am really jealous that the seniors don't have to take a final if they passed their classes. I understand why it is only the seniors, because you can't make it like that for the whole entire school, but I really wish that it applied to everyone because I work hard for my grades. Shouldn't my grades be enough proof that I understand the content that is being taught to us?

Endless Projects

For some reason after AP tests are finished and as the end of the year approaches, all my teachers decide that it is a good idea to assign projects.  And for some reason, all the due dates fall around the same time.  In the past week I have been assigned three projects in three different classes, all due roughly around the same time.  Projects, projects, projects.  Can't we just do normal work?  Don't get me wrong, I like projects.  They allow you to show your creative side.  However, on the other hand projects stress me out.  I find that projects allow for teachers to grade with bias, even if they don't mean to.  Say your teacher doesn't like your level of creativity, then you will lose points.  I always get scared that I will execute a portion of the project wrong as well.  And above all, group projects stress me out, especially when the teacher delegates certain tasks to certain people.  I am controlling when it comes to projects, I'll admit it.  The idea of having my grade and level of work rely on someone else is terrifying, even if I know they are smart.  It's something I am working on, but for now can my teachers please stop assigning projects at the same time!  There's only so much a girl can handle.

What to Read

I recently wrote about how I never have time to read, however, after I wrote that I made time to read a book.  The book was really small, however, so it didn't last very long.  Know I am on the lookout for another book.  I went to the bookstore recently and looked around for a book that jumped out at me, but I couldn't find anything.  I thought maybe a book by Virginia Woolf because the Female Literature class I will be taking over the summer has us read something by her so I figured I could get familiar with her work, however, none of her books jumped out at me.  I thought maybe a book by William Faulkner because I have really enjoyed Light In August.  Then I considered reading a young adult novel.  There were too many options, but not one that jumped out over the rest.  What to read, what to read...

The Impossible Point of View

Perspective is a common thought among one another.  Determining other people's lives and how they live it.  Putting yourself in others shoes to imagine your own life different.  Putting yourself in different scenarios to enlighten and even open your eyes to see how grateful you truly are.  Trying to picture what someone else's mind is like.  Realizing how different we actually all are.  Except the only perspective we haven't discovered or have been through is death.  Death is something that's inevitable.  Except no one knows what to expect, no one can tell us.  “So let's fall in.”  (Wow reading this back, it sounds so eerie… cool.)

Villian For Hire: Batman


 Image result for awesome wallpapers

So I am in the market for a new villain. I have had many to take down one being the infamous Joker. We have become to connected through all the years and because of this we're a bit predictable I need a new villain to keep me on my toes so that why I am always ready. I don't feel the need to fire the Joker, but to add a new villain into the rotation so keep us both spry in combat. I need a villain who can be their on the off days when the Joker is working on a master plan to try and take me down. I would be prefer a more structured villain, the opposite if you will from the Joker so that I can play both fields. he is a crazy, idea raging psychopaths. I need someone who will fill the spot of a organized criminal mastermind, so that could be ready for an type of attack to come at me.  Having to villains would be beneficial so that way if the Joker and said hire were planning something big to take me down it would be more of a challenge and would be a longer story of each of our trials and tribulations. Another big factor that this new villain should have is a complicated back story. If you don't have any character behind about why you became a villain than don't even bother to show up. I need a back story so deep I have to peel in back one layer at a time to find a weakness I can use to my advantage. I evil henchman would also be a good addition I know the Joker has some followers and his equally infamous girlfriend Harley Quinn, but I need the new villain to have preferable a a gigantic superhuman someone equally as hard to take down as a villain itself.  A Jekyll and Hyde kind of combinations.
 I know that this is hard to find but if their is anyone who fits this description and is a villain please contact your local superhero

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

In 2016, Two writers, Jack Throne and John Tiffany wrote a screenplay. It is based off of the original Harry Potter student but in the future when they all have kids. When it came out it was popular, many Harry Potter fans read it so they could have someone of the stories they loved. Recently in Ireland, it became a play, They've done some shows but not many and only at that one theater in Ireland. BUT.... as of this morning they will be playing one show in New York. The theater they are going to play at as been under construction and the day they reopen is the same say Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be preformed. I know it's going to sell out fast so, I hope I can get some tickets.

The little things I hate

Recently I have been focusing on the positives, but there have been odd situations or scenarios lately that I have come to realize irritate me more than anything. These are very silly things, none of them are world-impacting, or somehow going to change the universe, they are just little things that I have observed. 
The things I hate:
1) When it rains, all morning, and it is dreary and gross, and then halfway through the day, the sun decides to come out. WHY? I don't know. But the beautiful sunlight gives me many mixed feelings when everything outside is chilly and wet. 
2) When I fall asleep with socks on and I wake up and one sock is missing. One foot is cold and it is an unpleasant feeling.
3) When people purposely don't hold the door for others with things in their hands. I know this is not world-ending, but if someone is walking out of Dunkin Donuts, I really don't see that it is too detrimental to someone's day that whoever is walking in front of someone to hold the door really quick if an individual's hands are full. I know that sounds a bit silly, but its simple courtesy. 
4) When it rains and you have to take an umbrella somewhere- and then there is no place to put the umbrella! It is either too wet to carry around, put in a bag, etc, and maybe there is not a place to leave it? Very irritating in my opinion.  
5) When one shoe comes untied halfway through the day. How did one shoe manage to untie when I'm pretty sure I tied it identical to the other this morning? Good question.
I know this list was a bit foolish, but it was just a bit of random thoughts! 

Rotation 26

A few weeks ago I emailed my favorite author, Rebecca Donovan on her fan email. I figured she wouldn't have gotten back to me because she is so busy, but I wanted to give it a shot. There were rumors two summers ago that her book series, The Breathing Series, was going to have a corresponding movie series and I was ecstatic. The three books in the series are my all time favorite books. Yesterday she actually emailed me back and told me why the movies were never produced. Since the director had to move to Australia, her work with him was discontinued and Ms. Donovan was left with no director. She did tell me, however that "Emma's story will make a powerful digital television series."
Emma, the main character of The Breathing Series was a Junior in high school who lived in a small town in Connecticut with her abusive aunt and uncle because her mother was an unstable parent and her father died when she was younger. It wasn't until her aunt nearly killed her that she was taken away from them and finally started the live she's always dreamed about. The only people in her life that she's ever trusted was her best friend, Sara McKinley and her boyfriend, Evan Mathews. The books are about Emma’s struggle at her home(s), staying out of the way in school while being athletic and top of her class, and trying to keep Evan out of all of her personal problems.
I especially like Rebecca Donovan because she is from Boston, Massachusetts. Her language is easy to follow and her novels specifically teens and young adults who enjoy romance, drama and suspense. She is a young author who has written four books; Reason to Breathe, Barely Breathing, Out of Breath and What If, and is currently working on more. I enjoyed the plot of each one of her books, I even did my English 10 final on What If last year. I enjoyed reading about Emma’s life and watching her get stronger, physically and emotionally as the series progressed. I liked reading about her becoming more trustworthy and open to other people, specifically Evan as the story went on as well.
If anyone is looking for some books to read this summer I highly recommend this series.

Tests- Rotation #26

We are so close to the end, but the final few weeks of school always seem to be the hardest. Just like how the final 20 minutes of the school day always seem to be the longest. I have a lot of stress on my plate starting tomorrow until a week from now. On saturday we have the SATs, which I don't even know how to study for! All I remember from taking SAT prep is not knowing what the heck a gerund is, I still don't know. (google definition- a form that is derived from a verb but that functions as a noun, in English ending in -ing, e.g., asking in do you mind my asking you?.) Actually now that I looked it up its a very simple concept, the word just kind of sounds outrageous. On Tuesday 05/09 I have my calculus AP exam. When I took the mock exam I was about 83% lost, and then 17% of the stuff I actually sort of had a small grasp on. I got a 2 on the mock exam, and everyone keeps saying that usually the grade from your mock exam to your real exam goes up by one number, so hopefully I get a three (even though its a pretty big stretch for me). Then, the following day I have my AP English exam, which I literally have no clue whether or not I am going to pass because I didn't get the chance to take the mock exam. But, I feel like I was taught a lot of stuff this year in English and it was reinforced so well that I should maybe pass (note how much uncertainty there is, I just knocked on wood because I am superstitious). Anyways, after that I think for the most part there should be a much more clear path to the finish line of junior year, then over the summer I'm going to be working two jobs. Hopefully we do not get assigned too much summer work, But, knowing how my life is, I will get slammed with a bunch because I can't ever catch a break.

25


There are a lot of things to dislike and be unhappy about, but I honestly feel like its a lot better for people to try to look at the good things in life. I know everyone says that and I also know how hard it is to do at some points, but it is worth it. No matter what youre going through there will always be something good going on either directly in your life to you, or to the people around you that you love. Sometimes you might not be able to think of anything good in your life but maybe thinking of something good happening to your best friend will lift your spirits a little bit.
All im trying to say is everyone is has something to be happy about you just might need to look a little hard. youre alive, people you love are alive, the sun comes out (mostly) everyday, and especially right now, it is starting to get so flowery and warm outside! there are always things and it might be hard but being happy is better for everyone than being in a miserable mood. if there is something wrong, cry about it if you need to, talk about it with someone, then move on or fix the problem. When you are happy, your mood will reflect off the ones around you and others moods will also begin to lift. i think this is the best way to live, you will feel good about yourself and your life, and you will also make others feel good.
