Considering the fact that I haven’t posted anything since Halloween, it’s probably safe to say that I’m a terrible blogger and I’m bad at commitment.
There have been so many things that had happened in 2014 and I’m grateful for everything that has happened to me, both good and bad. One thing that I don’t really tell people about is my calendar. I would love to have a journal and be able to write all my thoughts into it, but based on my blog, I would procrastinate on writing journal entries. So, I’ve created a different method with my calendar. Each day, I write a very short sentence or list a few things that had happened: tests, projects, birthdays, parties, anything. Looking back at it, I’m amazed at how things have changed and the different people I’ve met (I actually wrote down the time and day I met a person because I believe that you’ll never know when you meet them again)
The boy kneeling in the picture was me! So much has changed!!!

ITS THE WEEK BEFORE SPRING BREAK!!!!! And here I am, still in the darned library because my internet at home won’t work and I have to go to the library in order to do my homework. Lucky for me, I’m going to Louisiana on March 10th to March 15th! Reason Why? My choir is going to be competing in the state of Louisiana, my choir teacher’s home state! We’re all beyond excited and we’ll be staying in New Orleans and experiencing the culture that is extremely different than Californian sun and beaches.
Back to English class though, we learned about how parents try to protect their child’s innocence by changing ad twisting the truth. Personally, I think people in general are just afraid of change sometimes. Change is new and different and we don’t really know what to expect. In class, we read a poem called “A Barred Owl” by Richard Wilbur. It talked about a girl being frightened by the call of an owl, but her parents tell her something else-a white lie-and comforts their child to sleep. Here’s the song I want to use to show change over time.
