Thoughtful Thursday: Walking to class

Walking to class is a simple task. I find it is much more than packing your things and moving on to your next block. It’s time for contemplation, listening to music, and mentally preparing yourself for your next class. I accomplish so much when I walk to class. I plan my day ahead, review what was...

Dreams are a beautifully strange occurrence in our sleep. Dreams take us to an alternative reality in our own conscience. It’s a place where we can float in the air, gravity not able to pull us down.

Thoughtful Thursday: Physically tired, mentally wired

My family and I are always buzzing with mental energy. Never is the switch flipped off. We can be exhausted after a tough day but are still full of mental energy. My mother, brother, and I were once sitting on the couch on a Friday night. All of us were physically drained from the week. Regardless of...

All my life I’ve lived by my father’s advice: Always be early to any event. Trust me it has its perks especially when it comes to school. Wake up early to get ready for school, you’d be surprised by how much you can get done. You can pick out a nice outfit, maybe do your make up (for all thos...

Out of the many things I’ve learned from my mother: she’s taught me the law of attraction. The law of attraction states that what you think you attract, whether it be positive or negative. For example, if you say you’re going to fail or do bad on an exam, chances are you will. It will attract...

Making people laugh. Why does it make us feel so good and warm on the inside? Especially the person we made laugh. Is it the fact that we actually possess the capability of making people laugh? From a corny joke to a witty comment? When we make people laugh, not just the polite and “oh that’s...

There’s something so appealing about being on the school bus. The sound of all the people talking and conversing. The feel and sound of the bus as it stops, starts, and turns.

Thoughtful Thursday: Living in the moment

Live in the moment. Such a cliché to many, but a true statement to those who know its meaning. I myself didn’t truly take it to heart until I experienced and understood what it meant. Living in the moment is taking in everything in your surroundings. Take in the sounds, the aromas, the tastes, the sensations, and the emotions. It’s almost like being on a natural high when taking in the moment. It’s such a powerful thing for me. In my junior year, I remember I had no time to finish my mango tea in my first class,...
