Five Tips For Packing Before a Vaction

Packing: The Nightmare

Summer vacation for many is just a few weeks away. Some might stay home, and enjoy their time off . Others like my self go on vacation . Now the most unfortunate part is having to pack. You can never know the exact things you need. But, I do have a few ideas to make it a little easier. Here are five tips to make packing more fun.

1. You don't

Just don't . Look at that suitcase, and think of all the fun stuff you are going to do. Think of the stuff you can buy, and all the food you're going to eat. Then think about how the sooner you pack the sooner you can get there. That in-turn will help you pack faster.

2. You make a list

Put random stuff together. Put the things in random groups like stuff you have to bring . Make a list of clothes and separate for tooth past. Leave room for souvenirs. (Lets be honest, there will be a lot.)

3. Put on Netflix

Find something that you can listen to and not . For me , I try to put something on in the background for when I cean. It helps alot. Or put on music. Something that gets you in the mood for where you are going. The music or Nextflix will get you excited for where ever you go.

4.Get a snack

Eat something , then start. If you have a full stomach you will get less disrations you will have. It might help you remember something important that you forgot about.

5. Actually start packing.

The sooner you actualy start, the sooner you don't have to worry about other things.

There are my tips for packing.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
