Sunshine

Well today was not so fun because it consisted of another boring day at school followed by more hours of boring at my house where I slaved doing homework until now. I needed a break and so here we are.

You might be wondering “why in the h-e-double-hockey-stick is this girl’s blog post titled Sunshine if she’s just going to rant about her day,” well good question. I really like irony and I kind of just wanted to mess with your head. (; I’m working off of two hours of sleep so sorry if this post seems a little wacko.

On the bright side, although this year will test my limits, for now I have a positive outlook on how it will turn out. Bigger and brighter things are to come, as well as more homework, more failure, and lots of rough times, but hey that’s life my friend.

Can I tell you a story?

Okay so once there was this time in the eighth grade when I had a sleepover at my friend, Cora’s, house. It was a typical night and we were going to sleep outside in her family’s RV like usual. Then, someone suggested that we use Cora’s toilet papering stash and TP this guy’s house that we all knew who lived down the street.

This was when the night started to get interesting. We got all decked out in black clothes and put together separate bags of the miscellaneous TP materials: confetti, ripped up bits of toilet paper, cotton swabs, tooth picks, etc.

A little while later, all was well as we each decorated the boy’s yard with our masterpiece. Two seconds later, we hear the front door opening, the lights turning on, and then a very deep-voiced, enraged male came booming out onto the lawn.

We all ran like our lives depended on it and hid in different spots down the street, trying not to lead the boy’s dad back to Cora’s house.

–Brief pause– Have I ever told you guys how unlucky I am? No? Well, you’re about to find out..

–Un-pause– My heart was racing like a humming bird’s wings and I could have sworn my breathing was loud enough to let anyone know where I was regardless of their distance from my location.

We could all hear the boy’s dad walking down the street searching for us. I had never been as scared in my entire life as I was in that moment. My left leg was sore from crouching behind someone’s car so I figured I would quietly shift legs. Little did I know it was not the sound that I needed to worry about.

About a second later, the lights above the driveway that I was in illuminated my hiding place!!! Needless to say this was what my reaction was like…

That’s still not even the worst part. I. Peed. My. Pants. I PEED MY PANTS LIKE AN EIGHT YEAR OLD GIRL.

My friends died laughing once we all met up back at the RV. I wasn’t even wearing my own pants to boot. I had borrowed them from Cora.

—  SO how did you guys like my little story (: I’m not kidding when I say that actually happened. My friends still bring it up when we reminisce about the old, middle school days.

Rocky

Edited rocky_1_19Over the past couple of days in my English class we watched a movie that you may or may not be familiar with called Rocky. Looking at some individual parts of the movie, I thought it was sort of weird and awkward, maybe that’s just me because the time period between when the movie was made and how my life is now are so completely different. But, there is a “but” for those of you who disagree with my opinion, taking in the movie’s lesson as a whole and looking at the big picture I thought it was a pretty cool, feel-good movie. I mean I didn’t quite understand the ending, which may have been because of my lack of sleep these past few weeks of school because of teachers cramming in projects and homework (that’s a whole other story) but after my teacher explained why the movie ended the way it did it made more sense to me. I can definitely relate to reaching that personal goal of “I made it all the way, it doesn’t matter that I wasn’t the best or that I didn’t win. I made it. I proved myself strong enough to tough it out.”

No Words

losswide-620x349I don’t know who Sean Severson was. I never had the chance to get to know him or ever meet him. I don’t know if I ever walked by him in the hallways or accidentally bumped into him while rushing to class. I never will know him or have the opportunity to see him smile after hearing a funny joke, or hold the door open for him like I do everyday for countless other strangers that this could also be about.

So I Had a Bad Day..

You know when you wake up and you’re already not feeling it so you automatically know that you’re day is just not going to go smooth at all? Well that’s how today started out for me. By the start of 2nd period my day was already completely terrible. I was in a somber mood, extremely stressed from too many tests and essays, and physically exhausted from lack of sleep. When things couldn’t get any worse I somehow stumbled upon this video at a time when i seemed to need it the most. This video actually lifted my spirits quite a bit. It just goes to show how the littlest of actions or words and phrases can have unforeseeable affects on people.

Neglected

I have been so so so terribly inconsistent with keeping up on the silly picture of the week so I am going to give you a crazy picture overload here to sustain yourself if you even read my blogs (like all 10 of you). Continue reading
