What If Fridays: 1

“What if you only ate one type of food for the rest of your life?”

My favorite food is spaghetti. I could quite possibly eat that for the rest of my life, but there’s a lot of issues with that.

First: I would miss ice cream too much.

Second: I could end up in the hospital.

You guys know the food pyramid right? There’s 5-no, 6? I’m checking it now and there’s some that are 5 and others that are 6. We’re just going to go with it’s important. 

It’s basically telling us what we are supposed to fill our plates with. Fruits and veggies, grains, protein, carbs, dairy have to be part of our diet. Each group provides its own specific nutrients to keep you healthy. If you miss out on anything, it can lead to some problems like anemia, weight loss/ weight gain, and weakness.

Having too much of one thing is bad. If you don’t eat carbs, it can cause impaired brain function short term. If you do, it causes high blood pressure and heart disease. That’s only some of the effects.

That’s it for the day. I gotta go figure out what to write for tomorrow.

Byeeeee

 

 

TED Talks Tuesdays: .5

Once school started winding down, I began to listen to Ted Talks a lot more often than usual. And by that, I mean for the first time. It’s not that I had any objections to it or anything of the sorts, but I spend most of my time reading or doing something involving music. So I’ve been trying to decide what I want this blog to be about. This is what I have come up with so far.

Musical Mondays

Ted Talks Tuesdays

What if Fridays

Something Something Saturdays

Mondays will be about music if it wasn’t obvious by the title, but maybe books as well? Books and music OH and movies. There I just made an executive decision.

Tuesday is pretty self-explanatory.  Any talk I’ve listened to will be up for discussion and I’ll write about what I thought, what I got out of it, etc.

Fridays will be on “What Ifs” such as “What if you only ate one type of food for the rest of your life?” Also, I will start to post poems and writing prompts on those days as well.

As for Sunday…anything I want.

Anyways, thanks for reading and see you Friday.

Who knows (I don’t)

I’m watching MasterChef right now guys and the tension is real.

Ok, so I just really wanted to write so I’ll see what comes to this post at the end. I need to have a plan for this summer because school starts at the end of September and it’s only been four days. And I’m bored out of my mind.

I have plans for the future, but not for now. I know I want to travel after college and write about those adventures, but as for right now…

Who knows?

Things I do know:

  • Work
  • Bake things with my closest friends (summer tradition)
  • Watch HSM until my friends are thoroughly annoyed
  • Hope they cry during HSM3
  • Read
  • Write

Exciting, yeah?

Graduation (and other things)

This whole post will be about the morning of graduation until the turn of the tassel. At our school, we have something called senior breakfast. Which, I guess, is pretty self-explanatory. We all show up at 9, eat until our heart’s content, and la-de-da until further instruction. Sadly, they had no scones, which was something I was craving that whole week. What they were serving was along the lines of scrambled eggs, bagels, OJ, and cinnamon rolls.

All very good.

The next item on the agenda was graduation rehearsal. Let me tell you something. Getting a class of 20+ kindergartners to line up for lunch time is difficult. They are only kids with a very small attention span and no concept of time or space. This also applies to the 400+ soon-to-be high school grads. Getting everyone into two separate lines to practice walking down a pathway should not be hard. It took us 2 tries. You’ve got the kids who are paying attention and want to get the rehearsal over with, and you’ve got the kids who have no understanding of what they should be doing. The line went from a single and perfect line, and then to a huge cluster, then back to single file repeatedly. And it was cold and our chairs were rained on so we couldn’t sit down for an hour.

So to my grads:

We learned how to form a line all through elementary school. They were literally trying to help us prepare for this moment, so use your skills and apply them to future tasks and whatever. ANYWAYS

We had an hour for lunch, so our group went for Starbucks and some went for the more substantial source of food. Losers. (If you’re hitting up Starbucks soon, I recommend getting the double chocolatey chip frappe and substituting it with white mocha. Trust me.)

Afterwards, we come back again for our senior salute assembly. Seriously the only reason it’s a thing is to inflict some emotion on our peers. If you want a rundown on that, let me know.

Then we leave to go get ready for graduation and only have an hour and a half to do so. So I head back to the house where some family friends are waiting for graduation, eat very quickly, and get ready. This is where the adrenaline starts pumping and anxiety and excitement start to kick in.

I head back to school, get into my hopefully organized line (it wasn’t at all. I know realize why we had to go an hour early and wait in that line for and hour.) During that time, we take pictures with our friends, goof off, and check out each other’s grad caps. What else could we possibly do? We’ve got short attention spans.

Then we start moving and it’s all ablur. I make up a secret handshake, lose my grad cap in the process, listen to speeches, and everything is surreal up until the turn of the tassel. That’s when caps are thrown into the air and everything stops. There’s hugging. Looking for families. Looking for friends. And the realization that we’re done.

That’s where friendship comes in.

 

 

 

That will be a week long topic which I will get to later.

 

Now What?

It’s been three days since I’ve graduated and nothing has happened. Actually, not true. For the past few days, I have watched the latest season of The Fosters, reorganized my bookshelf, and I am currently watching Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior. AND my books were delivered.

One of Us Is Lying 

Wicked

Alice in Wonderland

Packing for Mars

Wanderlust

Strange the Dreamer 

Rabbit Cake

Furiously Happy

I’m excited, but I’m also in a slump. Which really sucks.

I think I might do some reviews on a few depending on how much I like them. I also think I’ll start posting my writing and some thoughts from graduation.

Great.

This is my very first post (in case you couldn’t tell by the lack of content) and I think I’ll start off with how this blog came to be. I will be majoring in Communications this fall and my dad, being the greatest idea thinker person ever, decided that I should create a blog.

No experience whatsoever.

I mean I am a writer, but this is really throwing me to the sharks (is this the right metaphor?) So I have been setting this up for the last hour and viewing different forums and all the fun stuff I should be doing as a recent high school graduate. And recent as in like, 3 days ago recent. But I digress.

This will be my stories, my thoughts, and all my mini adventures compiled into a neat and somewhat happy, somewhat sad little journal.

We’ll see what happens.
