School…covered in snow?

So I may have not had a white Christmas…but I sure am having some wonderful snow school days!

So my school went back to school from Christmas break on the 6th of January. Then we had exams from the 13th-17th. After that we had school off until the 23rd! Since then we have had so many 2-hour delays I can’t remember our normal schedule and bell times! Today is kind of unique because we came to school at a normal time. However, dismissal time is 10:45! It is snowing 🙂 It is the pretty, fluffy snow. I knoww that we are getting out early just because we have a ton of student drivers, and they want us to get home safe. It is never a bad thing to get out of school super early! I hope it snows a couple inches..I haven’t been able to build a snowman in quite some time! I am kind of sad though, I will admit, that most likely dance will be canceled tonight. I haven’t been able to go for 2 Tuesdays because of weather! Oh well…I hope wherever you are the weather is treating you nicely! Always remember to drive safe and be smart!

What’s your weather like? Snow is a pretty big deal here in NC! 🙂 Let me know in the comments!

P.S. Keep a look out for a new short story type post! I have got a couple drafts I am playing around with! Might be posting some snow pictures as well! 🙂

What object defines you?

What object defines you? When you are trying to tell someone more about who you are, what object might you say is similar to you?

My object is an old pointe shoe. I am worn and kind of beaten up but I still work hard and do my job. Some people like me and some people hate me. I love to dance and express myself in my dance. I get used, but most of the time for a better purpose. I love to feel the music and go through the motions. I am a real piece of work sometimes but other times I may seem that I am just in my own world. Just me, the dance floor, the music, and my feelings. Eventually, there will come a time when I  am no longer useable. I will then be hung on a wall or stashed away as nothing but a memory. Then I will hang from a spot and watch as others love, hate, and live their lives. Knowing, that I have served my purpose, however my time is up.

What is your object? And why do you feel that it describes who you are? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

Mini Cooper Letter

(This was a letter I had to write to my English 2 Honors teacher talking about myself from the point of view from another person/thing)

Words from the Cooper

Dear Ms.Barrier,

 

Hello Ms.Barrier! I know we have not met, but I would love to tell you about Kaylin! I am Kaylin’s Mini Cooper. Me and Kaylin have been together for a couple months now. She takes super good care of me! She gives me a bath about once a month. She vacuums out my floormats about once a month. She loves me! We hangout a lot. Sometimes we will spend hours together looking at sunsets and pretty skies, fields of flowers and tobacco, or downtown Reidsville or Greensboro’s lights. I enjoy when she decides to take me out for a ride. She doesn’t push me too hard like her brother and father do. She is really nice and easy. You may not know it yet but Kaylin is kind of like that all the time! She is pretty laid-back, although for some reason she has like perfect posture when she is behind my wheel, and is really nice and caring. If she wasn’t caring I would probably be in pretty rough shape.

 

One time while we were riding along somewhere in Eden, Kaylin’s favorite song came on and we had such a blast! She was singing as best as she could! She would also dance, because I am sure you know she loves to dance! It was White Walls by Macklemore. So she was rapping and just being herself! It seems sometimes that the only time that she is herself is when she is alone with me or with her friend Chris. I think he is her boyfriend. Although, I am not really sure how that works because she calls me ¨Baby¨ all the time. I guess that is my name now! It is either ¨Baby¨ or ¨Mini¨. I like having a name.

 

Anyway, back to what I was saying about her only being herself when she is alone with me. She is quite the people (and car) pleaser. She loves taking care of other people, but at the same time I know she hates being used by the people she has helped. She has actually cried a couple times with me when she talks about her feelings and thoughts while we cruise through the backroads. That is her favorite place; the countryside. She always talks about how pretty it is. Especially during the sunrises and sunsets.

 

One time we went riding without her parents knowing. She said she just had to get away. The sun was just about to set. It was a little warm outside so she had both of my sunroofs open to the darkening sky. She parked next to this big field near Chris’ house. She just sat there in the seat playing ¨Bump¨ by Ed Sheeran. She cried, but it was so soft and gentle you almost couldn’t tell. I think that is why me and Kaylin are so close. She can trust me with anything! I love riding around with her when she gets to singing, talking, and dancing.  

 

I hope you come to appreciate Kaylin like I do! She is such a sweet and kind girl, but like most teeagers these days have to deal with so much peer pressure and stress. I know she doesn’t talk a lot and keeps to herself, but she will open up soon enough. She has got past experiences that make her this way, but from what she has told me about you, I believe she will really like you and your class!

 

Love,

           Mini

Late Late Nights

Well tonight is one of those nights where everything seems to hit me in the face all at once. So…..no sleep, tons of working, endless thoughts, millions of scenarios, and so much more……….

So exams for my High School are next week. So you think teachers would give less homework so that we have more time to study, right? WRONG. I have never had so much homework in my life! I am staying up till like 3 or 4 in the morning copying notes, worksheets, labs, studying, making flashcards, and God only knows what else. It is only stressing me the heck out. I have so much going on already with dance, rotc, and family drama. I need some sleep! Oh well. 

I think it is funny when school systems tell the students that it is so important to get plenty of sleep. When they give us 4 hours of homework and then study time. Oh and be involved with sports and clubs. That takes energy away and takes time away to do homework. Then they say ¨Don’t forget to eat a good breakfast!¨ When we have to be at school at 7:47 in the morning making us wake up at 6AM. So to get our full 8 hours of sleep we sleep in late and then get late to school. My favorite is when they say, ¨High School will be the greatest years of your life!¨ HAHA NO. Bullying, cheating, heartbreak, stress, stress, work, crappy food, fake friends, backstabbers, unimportant math formulas, useless science trivia, and learning about guys who died hundreds of thousands of years ago does not sound like fun to me. Maybe that is just me. Not to mention some perverted teachers! Seriously teachers should have to go through pysch evaluations before being appointed. 

So this is to the people up late at night & to the ones pulling an allnighter. Cheers folks. 

P.S. Thanks for putting up with my venting 🙂
