Appreciating The Little Things

Everything is changing very soon :)

Appreciating The Little Things

Once again, high school is almost over, there are somethings I'm appreciating more and more now that soon things are about to be so different.

I appreciate the phone calls with my dad first thing in the morning.

I appreciate seeing my wonderful boyfriend after I get off the bus.

I appreciate going to see my friend and goof around with them for 10 minutes before the bell rings.

I appreciate suffering with the rest of my classmates while my teacher rants endlessly about something that we've all tuned out of after the first 5 minutes.

I appreciate walking with my friends to my next classes.

I appreciate Jazz band, and being able to hear all these amazing musicians play perfectly in sync

I appreciate lunch, playing uno with my friends, harassing each other and giggling like children.

I appreciate hugs, the smiles, the smirks and the rolling eyes.

I appreciate the arguments over stupid irrelevant things and the laughing over how dumb we are for getting upset over something so small.

I appreciate my online class even though I have no idea what's going on most of the time.

I appreciate going home and being able to lie around and be lazy.

I appreciate acting ridiculously silly and talking to my mom at home.

I appreciate going to work and joking around with my coworkers and dealing with both nice and difficult customers.

I appreciate the long hot showers and the solitude of my room (sometimes)

I appreciate going to church and seeing all those friendly faces, and learning more about God and what it is to be a Christian.

I appreciate being able to spend so much time with all the people I care about.

I appreciate being able to date someone who is soo out of my league and being able to spend time with him and his hilarious family c:

I appreciate the close friends I have and that I can confide in them no matter how small the problem.

I appreciate the way things are now and that things are all going to change soon.

Highschool almost being over is making me so sappy, but I just wanted to write about something that was on my mind. I want to appreciate everything I have right now before it all changes. You all should my fellow seniors, things are about to be so incredibly different and fun I'm sure, just a different kind of fun :D. Just make sure you treasure your life now before it all changes. :)

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
