Food for Thought

I don't know what to say because you'd laugh at me, or tell me, "no, it's not possible". but it's crazy how everyone forgets about their dreams and passions right when they see everyone doing something else, like going to college or working a 9 to 5. If you ditch your dreams how are you suppose to achieve them? Why would you quit on something that you love? Don't you remember as a little kid teachers/parents would ask what you truly want to be when you grow up? But a decade later they ask the same question and it's not possible all of a sudden? Well to me I've always believed, and I will always believe it's way to early to quit on anything. You never know what opportunities will/would come up in the future when/if you keep working hard. My friend's dad told him that his passion was just a hobby.. to me that means he has never had a passion in his life because he truly doesn't understand how much it means to someone to live and die for …

Behind The Smile

*This is not based on me, but was inspired by a girl's story I watched on YouTube.

Behind The Smile
Painted on faces hide those dangerous places.
The places she runs from, NEVER looking back.
Because it's easier to smile and pretend she's happy for a while than to let them in where her brokeness hides, ashamed of what it has done.
Our eyes are wide open yet we are so blind.
we stare her in the face thinking she's fine
But she's not.
She feels so small, not even two feet tall
Belittled by the brokenness trying to shine through.
She asks herself a million times what do I do? What do I do? What do I do?
But the truth is, its a rhetorical question, she already knows the answer.
It's too late--- she's a ticking time bomb 3 seconds away from combustion.
Standing in the mirror she faces her best friend, her enemy
An emotional train wreck who's whisper screams so loud, not even the deafening beat of her heart can drown it out.
End it already.

Sick and Tired or Tired and Sick

Right now I'm at a point where my nerves are so high that they are making me feel physically sick. Even though to most people class president is just a dumb title, to me it is so much more. To me class president is the opportunity to bring our class closer and create a bond through events, activities, and fundraisers. It's the chance to create something that makes others happy (prom). I want to be class president, and I know I have a great chance at winning, but the idea of not winning is making me nauseous. I feel overwhelmed. As I sit in my chair appearing cool, calm and collected, inside I am frantically panicking. Inside it's like an elementary play ground at lunch the day after Halloween. Ugh is all I can say.

Masterpiece Academy (in the making)

In order to get a better grasp on my question I surveyed a variety of people. They were all around the same age, but were all from completely different backgrounds. I asked them about the time they were most hurt and if they were close to the person who hurt them. All were hurt by someone they considered close to them. I also asked if they had been hurt badly by someone who they weren't close to. Most said no, but there were a few who had been, but they did not consider the pain they felt as bad as the pain they felt in the first situation.
So why is this? Thus far I have decided the relationships we create are the platform of the pain we experience. The closer you get to someone the more they'll hurt you weather it's intentional or not. To present my information I have started a PowerPoint, and will be adding extra features to it to enhance the point I am trying to prove.

Masterpiece Academy (notes)

Alejandra
Topic: what it be better if ppl knew their perfect match by birth marks
Asked around peers
Answers
-Wanted experience didn't want to be tied down
-No perfect match guessing each day if you'll last
Every person has one birth mark someone will have the exact same one and will be matches
Does side of mark matter: no
Presentation style: talked and had an example

Ale did a good job, but I think she could have had a larger variety of resources. Considering she went first she did excellent! Way to go Ale.

Presented with blog
Changed her question: 3 days ago
Question to find closure
Related to Carrie fisher and mom
Broken heart syndrome: relates to older couples (usually)
Had examples of people who died of broken heart syndrome
When you give your heart to someone they have part of your soul. When they die apart of you dies
People know about the physical reasons for death but not physiological
Real cause isn't just murder but it's what's in yiur brain

My New Big Question

So as I talked about my big question in class today, it didn't really interest me anymore. This led to deep thinking, and I have come up with a new big question. My new big question is 👇

Often times we are hurt by the people we are closest to; it's never strangers or acquaintances that hurt us, but the people we care about most, so my big question is, "Why is it that the ones we expect the most from and care about the most are always the ones to hurt us, or why do we hurt the people we care about the most?"

I have been given the opportunity to enter a poetry contest, and I am very excited about it because I have such a great passion for poetry. I just am not sure as to a topic I should write about. All topic suggestions are welcome 😊.

You're a genius and you didn't even know it

Today we were writing essays on The Great Gatsby, and I did alright, but there is one phrase that I wrote in the essay and I'm absolutely in love with it.

"Everyone wants to be perfect, and handle everything without anyone knowing there was ever a problem to begin with".
-yours truly, Cerenity Faith

GREAT GATSBY NOTES 2

Supercilious: arrogant; behaving as if one where superior to another

Best for a girl to be a fool: I think she said that because she is getting cheated on and if she were a fool she wouldn't know she was getting cheated on

Rotogravure: a sheet or magazine printed by rotogravure, especially the color magazine of a Sunday newspaper.

JUST KNOW.... IT'S GETTING INTERESTING!

Remix

I remixed the "I Have a Dream" speech. Obviously it is nowhere as great as the original speech, but I tried.

Hello 2017!

Since january 2016 I've had new experiences, good and bad. From them all I have learned to be more of an individual, rather than conforming with everyone else. In the past year I took a leap to conquering my shyness. In my opinion I have grown the most in the area of leadership, and I think that stems from getting over my shyness.

The Past, The Present, and The Future

First things first, happy new year!!
Now on to more important things... The future. It is now 2017, and I am halfway through my junior year. Last semester was everything but my best semester, and I can't promise the next one will be any better, but I have to make a tremendous effort for it to be. I am constantly bombarded with questions about my future. "Where do you want to go?" "What career plans do you have?" "What do you plan to do after high school?" Those are all great questions; I simply just don't have the answers to them. My choice could haunt me for the rest of my life. I can't even drive, yet I'm expected to decide my destiny.
Its crazy how when we're kids we know exactly what we want to do, where we want to go, and who we want to be. We have big dreams, and there isn't a voice loud enough to crush them. We don't care about the process, or how hard it is, all we care about is the end result..... Then, we grow up, we …

Technology Sucks

I am so upset. I was working on something new, and I was so into it. I knew it was going to be great. I was so excited to share it with everyone and I was about a paragraph away from completion. Then next thing I know, within ten seconds it was gone. I was literally on the verge of tears. I could feel my heart plummet to my stomach. I was feeling a mix of rage and heart break. Ugh. The replacement is never as good as the original so when I do finally post it just know, the original was probably 1000x better.
