The school year is finally over, that is, after finals. But, like everyone says, the journey continues and next school year will probably be a great year as well. Whatever. We all know that the next school year is going to be a mixture of happiness, sadness, and madness. Hey! We made it through this one and that means we’re going to make it through the next one and the ones in the future.

Winning is All! Unless You’re Losing…

These past couple of weeks me and my fellow English classmates have engaged in “Brawls” that were based on the novel, “All Quiet on the Western Front.” We were pit against each other in a true test of skill, knowledge, and preparation. But despite all that, no one would ever have been prepared to face the dangers of the buzzer and the scoring of the judges.

Animal Abuse is Never Okay.

The title says it all, animal abuse is not okay. I remember there was this one day where I was walking with my sister and my two dogs, and we had let them off the leash at the park so they could run and get exercise. When this couple and their kids walked by, I told my niece to hold onto one of my dogs. But, my niece ended up letting go of my dog. So, my dog ran straight to the couple. I ran after my dog and when I got close enough, I saw that the man had kicked my dog away. I was extremely mad, and it was a one time thing for my dog. But, I cannot imagine how many animals are abused (hurting them physically, neglecting them, not feeding them). I also believe that we need to start raising awareness and help the dogs that are being abused. Some people might just say, “oh, they’re just dogs.” No. They are not just dogs, they are a living organism just like we are. They have feelings, just like us. This applies to all animals; cats, birds, fish even. So, please read this blog post and the blog post linked. Please, help raise awareness of the amount of animal abuses and let’s help them.

Ghibli Fan Creates 47 Animated Dishes into Mouthwatering Reality

This post totally and wholly appeals to the food addict inside of me. I remember being a little kid watching Studio Ghibli and totally drooling over the food, wishing that my meals were like that. Studio Ghibli’s animation is already one of the most pleasing things to look at, from the vibrant colors to the movements of the characters, but the food is what makes it. But seeing someone bring this to real life, it’s just amazing. It’s a fifty-seven minute long video about dreams coming true. The detail and the amount of work put into it is beyond amazing. It’s food, but it’s art, but it’s also delicious, so I’m just over here wishing that I could achieve this level of culinary talent someday. To tell the truth, I wouldn’t mind making cooking if what I made turned out like this. After checking out this artistic chef’s youtube channel, I definitely need to get something to eat.

I'm Not A Xue

When you watch a Studio Ghibli film, there are generally four things that you can expect to see depicted with utmost passion and detail: the thrill of life, the bonds the characters create with one another, the glory of nature, and the mouthwatering tastiness of the expertly prepared food. Especially the food.

In fact, the various foods featured in these classic animated movies, range from the average day-to-day grub to extravagant delicacies. So various, that one fan counted as much as 47 unique dishes that looked good enough to eat and set out to make it ALL BY HIMSELF.

A picture I took on that day of my dog and the sunset. A picture I took on that day of my dog and the sunset.

I remember walking to the beach with my dog on Valentine’s Day. Because of course, she was my valentine. I sat down on the sand while the sun set and my little black dog Pepsi was running around, playing in the sand. She likes to dig in the sand and sometimes little specks of sand stick to her nose. She runs in circles, very fast circles. Sometimes I can’t even keep up with her, and she looks like a black blur. She’s deathly afraid of the water, she will not come near it without me forcing her with a leash.

I was just sitting there, looking at the sun. It slowly descended from the sky, and as it did everything got more.. yellow. The sky became tinted with a more orange color, and the rays were still…

The Good, the Bad, the Not so Good, the Not so Bad, the Totally Neutral, the Somewhat Evil, Etc…

For a short period of time, I tried being evil. The reason being that I wanted to understand what it felt like to be the villain, who seems to have much more fun than the hero, aka the nice guy who seems to have everything and everyone he loves taken away from. It was…a difficult process. I feigned ignorance to avoid helping someone with their homework, I ignored my ‘friend’s’ need for assistance, I pretended not to see someone I didn’t like, and so on. It felt pretty good.

Food Sundays (Fridays): Week 1

Food Fridays (Sunday) (not this one… I was late 2 days, the next one will be on Friday) is where I tell you about all the foods that I get to experience throughout the week. This week I’ve been eating a lot of frozen stuff.

I went to eat at Souplantation last Saturday and you can’t leave without eating ice cream. It’s like going to a KBBQ place and not getting any of their ice cream or candy they give you at the end. Some of the food here is either too strong or to weak in taste. But I would still go there for the baked potato.
