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.
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.
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.
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 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.
