Life is CRAZY!

I just finished up a book for English titled, ‘Populazzi’. In the beginning of my senior year, we started a year long project on a specific guided question we chose during the first week of school. I was really interesting in the realm of the high school world I was submerged in, and decided to create a topic encompassing it. I was, and still am, completely fascinated by popularity and how people come of it. I chose to focus on ‘Why some of us fit in, and others don’t’.

I had to choose a fiction book, and after skimming the kindle teen section, I settled on Populazzi. As I started reading the book, I nudged it off as a dumb teen book that I would only use for quotes. Then boom. My lights go out and the wi-fi in my house stops working, AKA no more of The Office, so I am left with only this book and 35% on my Iphone. Let’s just say: I spent my entire day with my phone 3 inches away from my face.

Okay sorry to trail off…. But. I completely devoured this book! Let me just say it wasn’t magnificent writing or an impressive story line, but it was a fun and easy read. It was a story of a social hungry girl who works her way up to the top of the ladder, only to find out it was a cold and lonely place to be. It made me think though… You can choose to be whomever (is that right?) or whoever you want! It is a crazy concept, and one that will leave me pondering for the rest of the week. So, to get to the point, life is crazy. So as I type this on this calm and cozy Sunday night, I provide my readers with one tip for this week: do something CRAZY! One thing, or even one thing each day. Life is crazy, and nothing REALLY matters in the long run. You won’t look back and laugh about your Netflix marathon!!! Remember that when you are thinking of making the leap to go crazy and and go to that function you have been dreaming about. Do something crazy and make a memory!

Xoxo!

TIME MOVES QUICKLY.

Wow! I have not written on here since July or August. I pushed this outlet of mine to the side, and I have suffered the consequences. I used to write in a journal and describe my day and thoughts, yet I find myself not opening the journal for months at a time. It makes me think on how we push the those outlets or activities that truly calm and satisfy us to our core, and we pass the time on our phones or watching T.V. Don’t get me wrong, a Netflix binge is just what the doctor ordered in many scenarios- but we must make the time for ourselves to grow mentally and spiritually.

When I am tossing and turning in bed at night, I think about time and how little we preserve it. I hear the phrase “Life is short” almost every day, but sometimes I don’t really think about it. I have been trying to live more ‘in the moment’ lately, and it is a process I struggle with grasping. I am always stuck in the past, or vying for the future- and I am missing out on what is here and now. I have written about this before, but it is a topic that I think is really important, and I think about often.

My goal is to write a few posts a week (or everyday! ah!) and really give myself a place to share my thoughts, feelings, emotions, and questions. If I still have anyone out there who feels the same way, give me a heads up! Let me know what you would like to hear me ramble about!
