Write one leaf about pumpkins.

October 17, 2010

Fall is my favorite time of year and pumpkins just top it all off!! 😀

This year for Halloween I will be in La Crosse for a youth convention and for a fund raiser we sold a WHOLE ton of pumpkins. They were $5 each. I ended up raising $60 I think it was….I dont remember but I think thats right. Anways, the youth center that had bought them for us to sell still has a lot more but they aren’t the best. So now what we are doing is selling them for I think its $3 and the youth center is letting people throw the pumpkins out the top window of a two story building and try to hit targets like eggs cartons, etc. It’s going to be a blast!

Before we decided this, my mom bought two pumpkins for me and my sister to carve! Im looking forward to it! 🙂

Last year I didn’t get to carve a pumpkin. sad panda. I love pumpkin tho. The only thing bad Ive ever had that was pumpkin was some Pumpkin soup my aunt tried making one year that she put ham in. It was pretty nasty. But I love a good pumpkin pie with tons of whip cream on it. Or dried pumpkin seeds with some salt on em! YUM!! Those are just amazing!!

My favorite thing about pumpkins though, is on halloween night when everyone has their carved pumpkins outside and all lit up! Its like magic! =]

Write one leaf about making a mix tape

May 1, 2010

So my ex made me cds. I always told him there was a cd I wanted to get, and the next day he’d surprise me with a burned copy of the cd I had been talking about.

I felt guilty for never giving him anything, so I decided to make him a “mix tape” (cd actually lol). I worked on it for hours one night. I wanted it to be perfect! I wanted every song to mean as much to him as he meant to me. I didn’t think it was done that night, so I just left it and said I’d come back to it. A week went by and we barely talked at all. Instead he wrote me notes. This made me kind of upset but I thought I’d finish the cd and give it to him. And idk…

Either way I thought we would be able to fix things. I burned the cd and put it in my backpack with intentions of giving it to im the next day. The days came and went and he stopped writing to me even. Things got akward between us, and I snapped. I couldn’t take it anymore and I lost all hope…

I broke up with him.

….And at this point idk what else to say. Somedays I’m glad I did it and other days I’m curious what would have happened. If we would’ve stuck it out, could we have fixed everything and atleast be friends now?

Well two days ago, I found that old backpack. I decided i’d use it. I started cleaning it out, opened the big pouch and found nothing in it, opened the side pouch and sure enough there it was. I listened to the cd that night.

That night, I cried myself to sleep…

Write one leaf about someone who loves you

May 1, 2010

I honestly don’t know who loves me or if anyone truly does. People have told me before that they love me, but other days they hate me. And who knows really. People will say anything, it doesn’t mean it’s true!

It’s an interesting thing. And I feel like I’m being hypocritical  because I’ve done this. I’ve told people I love them, but somedays I do truly hate them. No, I take that back. I don’t “truly” hate them, but it’s like I hate loving them so much. Expecially when they do things that make me mad, sad, etc.

And love is such a difficult thing. It’s hard to say what love truly is. We are brought up being told “I love you” from our parents and family members. And that’s one of the first things we hear from our mom when she first meets us and has no clue what we’re going to turn out like. So love is unconditional. But it also seems to be forced upon us. If we don’t tell our parents or anyone that we love them back then they think something is wrong with them and that we’re mad at them for something.

Love is complicated. It makes no sense. It causes ur heart to beat 10x faster than it should. Fills ur stomache with butterflies so you shake and feel like you could throw up. Your head spins and circles and you become dizzy. And yet we enjoy this feeling. It’s what so many people yurn for….that is the people who’ve never had it.

After a way though, it all goes away. And love becomes just simply being yourself and feeling comfortable around someone. Knowing them inside and out. Being honest, trust worthy, careing….and just being there for someone.

All we need is love….

Write one leaf about floppy discs

May 1, 2010

At first when I saw this one, it made me kind of mad.

I used to have a super super old computer that was a “hand-me-down” from one of my mom’s friends. It had belonged to her daughter. On it I found a whole bunch of music. Alot of it was older crap like brittany spears, etc. Then I found a folder that was “unknown.” I listened to it and ended up loving alot of the music in that folder except they were all just titled “Track 1,” etc. So when I decided to get rid of that computer and get a laptop I wanted those songs and my mom told me she’d take care of it.

Well I got my laptop and the next thing I know my mom is handing me a floppy disc saying “I put all those songs on here, but you laptop doesn’t take floppy discs.” :/  What the heck mom! That doesn’t help me at all! (I didn’t really say that to her though! I’m a good child.)

I ended up accidentally finding two of them. One of them was a super old coldplay song and the other one my sister had gotten on a burned cd from one of her friends and i recognized the song. That day I was sooo happy about that! But I’m still aggravated that the rest of the songs are pretty much lost forever! 😦

Write one leaf about interruptions

April 29, 2010

So today we had a “hard lock down drill” at school 2nd hour (aka interruption!). So the anatomy class that hour didn’t get any work done. So the teacher also decided my class hour could just have a study hall to make it fare. So I wrote this poem. Let me know what you think! 🙂

Neither of us know how to get through

And trust me I’m just as terriefied as you

I wish I knew what we could do

It seems like we were doomed from the start

But neither of us are willing to part

Life without you would break my heart

Yet all we seem to do is fight

I’ve tried to forget you with all my might

But memories make me cry at night

My mind comes up with messages I would never send

So I hope that over time, my heart will simply mend

And for you and me this won’t be the end.

Write one leaf about screaming

April 11, 2010

Depending on my mood, there are alot of different things I could write about screaming. So I might have to write this one again or add more on later.

*Running around the campfire, Jumping on the trampoline, Playing catch, Roasting marshmellows, Watching fireworks, and Giggling and Screaming the whole time. It doesn’t matter if you’re 7 or 17. It’s still just simple fun.*

Write one leaf about teasing.

March 21, 2010

There are different types of teasing in my opinion. There’s the kind where you’re “just kidding” and then they kind that is actual hurtful. I”m refering to the hurtful kind. If you have a problem with someone, then just leave them alone! You have no reason to want to make somebody else feel bad or insecure. We all just want to be loved for who we are…

And this brings me back to what happened to a friend of mine a week or so ago. He’s not one of my extremely close, but people did and said stuff to him that I don’t approve of and no matter how much you dislike a person I dont think you should be this cruel to them.

So my friend is bi. And alot of ppl suspected him of being gay all along, but not alot of people actually knew for a fact that he’s bi. His cousin on the other hand did know. She used to be really close friends with him and they always hung out. Then she started dating this one guy, and my friend didn’t approve of her boyfriend. He told her that and she got really mad and they got into an argument. Now she basically hates him. So in their english class she started telling people that he was “madly in love” with a guy in our school. And this guy is someone that nobody likes. So basically she was just being a jerk, but the guy ended up hearing about it, so every time he’d walk past my friend in the hall, he’d cover himself with his books and tell my friend to stop staring.

Then in english his cousin started teasing him again, and everyone in the class joined in. My friend started crying. He’s a sophmore, and he now hates almost everyday of his life, and fears highschool!

Teasing is bad, and has caused people to fall into depression or comit suicide! It’s not a laughing matter and people should really watch what they say!

Write one leaf about Wal-Mart

March 17, 2010

This is a rather coincidental topic since I went to Walmart this weekend. It wasn’t the best trip ever though, let me tell you! My mom has recently befriended a lady at her work who is super sweet, but her son is a brat!..and he ended up coming along with us. ug.

The whole time we were shopping in the mall he was being a pain and whining about everything. When we got to walmart though he wasn’t all too bad.

My sister and I actually wanted to play the guitar hero but it wasn’t working. So he tried to help us. We restarded it and everything but nothing would work. So we asked for help from the guy at the desk. I swear that guy was high. You should’ve seen how he acted. But we asked him if it was working and he says “well look at it! of course it is!” and he tried to press the buttons but nothing was working. So he starts making weird “hmm” noises and restarts it and goes “THERE! Now it’ll work I know it.” When it came back up he says, “there ya go! all better. see.” and the screen looked exactly as it did before he “attempted” to fix it.

So my mom’s friends son was there with us and we all just walked away asking each other “so what drugs do you think he’s on” and we were laughing our heads off!

Then we went and played with cameras before we left.

Overall it was a fun day!

Write one leaf about Hamlet

March 14, 2010

Ug, Hamlet is so boring. We began reading this in my honors world literature class this semester. Luckily we don’t have to finish it or write a paper on it anymore. That’s because there are kids in my class who transfered over from regular world literature and they already read it, so my teacher doesn’t want to make them do it again. So now we might just watch the movie!

When we began reading it, the only thing I understood basically was that Hamlet was a d-bag who was in love with a whore….or something like that! I really don’t know. My teacher tried explaining it to us, and that’s how I understood it atleast.

I don’t know what else to say about this play. It’s like a lullaby I suppose, it puts you to sleep!

Write one leaf about dead batteries

March 14, 2010

This is one that really makes me feel agrivated! When I’m older I want to be a photographer. I absoluetly love taking pictures, but my camera is such a pain in the butt! The batteries are constantly dying. A few months ago I started a “picture a day” project on facebook, where I take and upload a picture everyday. However this has been very difficult because of dead batteries. Alot of days I either can’t take my picture because my camera is dead, or I take a picture but it dies then so I cannot upload it.

It’s making my project very frustrating and I’ve lost alot of opportunities to take good pictures! 😦
