Half full/Half empty

Christmas is coming closer and so is the end of the first semester. I have recently been asked, "What does it feel like to be a sophmore.5?" How do I feel? I feel mixed. I'm really quite thrilled that the year is half over. I am in such a great need of a break. But, as eager as I am to start a new semester....I am also kind of dreading it. Soon the second semester will also have come and gone, leaving the class of 2011 only two years left in highschool. This truly saddens me to think of the small amount of time we have left. However, I am also excited to see what the future may hold. So, in the end one feeling does not over power the other. I am simply....mixed.

Ever heard the saying "what ever is meant to be, will be"? Fate is always going to happen. No one can change it. If two are meant to fall in love, they will. If one is meant to die tomorrow, they will. There is nothing in the world that can change the outcome of something meant to be. Fate.

Fate can be pretty scary. People like things that are controlable. Fate is not one of them. How does one know there own fate? Some believe in horoscopes and astronomical messages. However, one never really knows.

In the end, fate is really what controls life.

First things first!

My class is still reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey, and so it is time for yet another opinionated blog. In one of the sections Covey talks about putting first things first. I have learned from my own past experiences that if one does not learn to prioritize then procrastination becomes a huge downfall.

I will go ahead and admit my fault. I am a procrastinator. After reading this section however I learned that some things are more important than others.

For example: Ever heard of homework before play? This is an excellant motto to live by. I know that teenagers have a tendency to think the other way around, but what good does that do?

It is best to learn what is really important. Seriously, if you have to stay home and study instead of going to the movies your friends will understand. Who knows? Maybe they will start to follow your example.

Learning to be Proactive!

My classmates and I are currently reading The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey. In the very first chapter the Covey writes about how being proactive is the way to go.

From experience, having three younger brothers has taught me that being proactive is not always so easy. Being proactive means you have to be willing to let the little mishaps slide and not ruin your day.

When Kyle, my younger brother, was little he loved to come into my room and rummage through all of my belongings. I had just received a brand new bottle of the sweetest purple nail polish in the world. As I was sitting on my bed doing my homework, like the good little girl I was, my brother, without my knowledge, slipped in and snatched up the polish. Long story short, it ended up all over the downstairs carpet and I was furious.

Looking back now, I realize that my brother was only a little child and I completely wigged out way more than needed. I was young then, and now I know that if I had just been more proactive the situation could have ended differently.

So now I shall end this blog with two simple words of wisdom....BE PROACTIVE!

It just makes life easier. :)

My letter to the next president

Dear Senator Obama:

In the event of your election I would like to say a few words on behalf of the many issues you will now have to deal with as president.

First I would like to comment on your choice for vice president. Personally I believe you should have chosen Hillary Clinton instead of Joe Biden. Although Biden does have much experience in the vast world of politics I strongly believe Clinton would have made a much better running mate. However, I do think that Biden is a much better choice for a Vice President than Sarah Palin, so kudos to you for having some common sense.

Next I would like to bring up the issue of gas prices. I, as well as every other American in this country, have decided that the oil companies have gone too far! All they care about is their own greed and that green papered friend. I hope you plan on doing something about this because it’s absolutely killing Americans.

Lastly, I would like to say that I mostly agree with your views on abortion. I especially agree about the whole deal with women being able to have privacy and make their own decisions about the matter.

Thank you so much for your time and good luck to you in the future.

A look at the character of Katerina!

Evil ones beware! The fearless Katerina is here to retrieve the life she once knew and lost, and finally take down the evil Mortar. With her mighty strength and incredible endurance she’ll finally restore good to the planet Krokus. When Katerina was left to die the cunning fox Puck saved her life, healing all wounds and making her stronger than ever. Now she’s as strong as thirty men and can run for hours at a time. Exhaustion hardly touches her and even the strongest of her enemies finds it hard to win a fight against her. Also, thanks to Puck, she is invincible! The single red crystal around her neck is her life crystal. It shines red and grows hot every time Kat is most powerful. Her life is protected as long as nothing happens to the crystal which she keeps close and protected at all times. And of course, her undying devotion to her friends and family is not to be forgotten. After the evil Mortar destroys her home and turns her best friend, Brilen, to the dark side her desire to avenge her loved ones grows to the highest peak within sanity. Kat it determined to see the downfall of the one who ruined life for her as she knew it. With all her wonderful traits and with the help of Puck, Katerina hopes to defeat the dark side and bring back hope to the planet Krokus.

What do I think of Sci-Fi?

Personally I believe science fiction is kind of dumb. The thing about sci-fi is that people then to believe it way to much. For example, the whole 'aliens in outer space deal. Oh please people get real. Don't you think that if there really were aliens that wanted to destroy us they already would have? Now don't get me wrong, some of the sci-fi stuff is actually OK. I thought the whole concept of I-robot was pretty fascinating. Really it's the stupid alien invasion stuff that gets me. Also, since we're on the subject, I think sci-fi is better portrayed in action rather than in writing. I get bored easily with the books but put it all in a movie and I'm like "Wow!".
