Seniors

I am finally a senior. I don’t know what it is but I’m more excited about this year than ever. Maybe it’s the fact that this is the start to many endings . The last time I will ever need to find my locker , the last time I will have 3 trimesters the last time I will have homecoming , prom . Like I said before college seems like such a scary thing but I’m so excited for it . Il be away from home and il have so many new adventures . Il be turning 18 I’m so excited for my last year of high school . Looking forward to making this the best year ever !

MapCrunch

Hello fellow bloggers hes a good one for you. Next time you’r home bored and waiting for something to happen to  you out of the blue , here is something to keep you busy. . Its called MapCrunch 

MapCrunch is the online version of hostage (if you don’t know what hostage is, its a game you play with your friends and you blindfold a person and drive them some where and let them find there way home. During this game you cant use a cell phone, GPS or other electronic devise.)With that being said MapCrunch is for those who don’t have friends . 

You go on MapCrunch , select “hide location” ,make sure you have all countries unselected and click go. This will drop you in a random part of the world. It’s as if your friends dropped you of on the side of the road in ANOTHER COUNTRY . Obviously the goal is to find your way back home (if you end up in the U.s. If your in another country the goal would to find your way to an airport so you can return home.

An arrow can only be shot by puling backwards. When life is dragging you backward with difficulties,it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus and keep aiming.

When life has you down and you are in a hard spot just remember , things will get better. Keep looking forward , and keep your head up ! This quote stands out to me for obvious reasons , it makes me want to move forward and I hope it does the same for you.(If it doesn’t that’s okay, not every one’s the same.)

Zeitoun

For school I had to read a book . The name of the book was Zeitoun … now I picked the book from random and thought it would be a boring ol’ book that I would hate and not want to read. I was waaaaaaaay wrong. This book was actually pretty great i would give it 4 out of 5 stars or 4 1/2 . I was into the book and wanted to see what happen to the main character the whole time. It kept me wanting to read more and more . 

Now for those of you who haven’t read Zeitoun , its about a Muslim man who moves to New Orleans and gets married and has kids. He stays in hurricane Katrina and his wife and kids leave. The the government think hes a terrorist and arrest him. He is then put in prison and cant get a hold of his wife until after a month . After she finds out where her husband is she goes and save him but again faces problems . 

Now what got me really upset was that the both Zeitoun and his wife were profiled , weren’t aloud a phone call , they weren’t red there rights and they were treated like dogs. The things that Zeitoun had to go threw was crazy bad and I am disgusted by how the government took charge. Zeitoun was a nice man didn’t do anything bad and he was treated like a criminal . Now if you wanna know what all happen to him , you’re gonna have to read the book.

College

I’m sorry for the rambling…its not to bad I promise! Plus I bet I’m not the only one who feels like this. I and the rest of my class have one more year of the “easy years”. One more year where we can fool around and get one on one time/help with our teachers and just have someone watch over us. Its the last year most of us will be with our parents and even at home. The last year we will see some of our classmates for a very long time or even for ever.

Yeah yeah most of the people in our high school say things like ” i hate this place ” or  “I cant wait to be out of here” chances are they will be the ones who miss it the most. The expression that comes to mind is  you don’t know what you have until its gone. Its completely true ones we are all in college we will start missing all the good times we had with our friends and peers. That my friends can be a scary thought, knowing that people you know and love are gone.

The things that scares me the most are not the fact that I might not see everyone or I wont be living at home. The things that scare me are grades and being lost and over all my freshman year.  The fact that I am terrible at taking test makes very nervous. Knowing that homework is not a big part of your grade adds the the nervousness. Also getting lost , lets face it colleges aren’t small . I honestly really don’t want to be that one chick who came in super late for class and dropped all her books and has a map with her trying to find her first class.

Maybe its all in my head and movies and other media have forced this view of college that’s not at all what it actually is. I think I’m just getting anxious like when we first when into the middle school and they told us how things were gonna be. Or when were gonna go into high school and our 8th grade teachers told us it was going to be “hard.” High school certainly did not turn out like I thought it would be and quite honestly I am very glad.

Well first is first i have to apply for college then get accepted… maybe I’m getting a little bit ahead of myself . Good luck to the seniors this year , I personally will miss you guys! Good luck in college!
