Get Lost

Go into the unknown, and make it known.

Get lost, then found, then lost again.

Disappear into nothing

So you can absorb everything.

Forget about what you know,

Leave it behind,

Move forward with new knowledge.

Post Cards to San Francisco

Dear San Francisco,

Thank you for a memorable experience in your city. I will never forget all that your city has to offer. I enjoyed visiting Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Pier 39, and the Muir woods. I would recommend these places to those who have yet to visit the golden city. The Golden Gate Bridge was amazing; I never realized how foggy it got until I got there. The bridge is not only connecting two pieces of land, it is also connecting people together from all over the world. There were so many languages I heard when I was there that made it me appreciate how diverse America truly is.

Sincerely, Someone who loved visiting your city

P.S. Stay golden

Having a Ball

The app Pokémon Go has been out for a couple of weeks now and what I noticed is astonishing. Hundreds of people are walking around the community. Families are spending more time together while getting exercise.

This is the best app for kids who grew up playing video games and watching television for their entertainment. Not only does it make them get up and go outside but it also lets them learn about their community.

Sparkling Personalities

Behind the star spangled banner and the lights of the fireworks lies the real reason of the Fourth of July. It’s a time for families to get together and spend some well-deserved time with each other. Every year I go with a group, whether it is my family or fiends (who I consider family). I never really go for the fireworks, instead I go for the conversations. As a kid, fireworks scared me; let’s just say I saw my life flash past my eyes more than I would have liked.

Since I don’t really enjoy watching the fireworks I take the time to watch people. It’s interesting to see who goes to the show and how they react. After awhile I notice you see the same people every year.

A Bowl Full of Cherries

Every summer I go to Door County Wis. with my family. There are so many things to do it is hard to choose even if you have been there before. That is always our problem every year, we try cherry-picking our activities and run out of time to do everything. Time flies fast when you’re at the Door Peninsula, you don’t want an opportunity to close just because you didn’t have time to do it.

A good idea is to plan ahead and research activities that fit with your personality. Whether you’re an athlete, an artist, a nature-lover, a spender, or a foodie: or who knows, a little of them all, there are things for everyone to do.

When Pigs Fly

I went to a coffee shop with my mom the other day and I noticed the barista wearing flip-flops. Summer has finally come and everyone is flaunting their feet for everyone to see and it got me thinking.

Do you remember when you were little, playing outside the sun throwing warmth on your face as you run barefoot through the grass? Life was simple and we had no care in the world. Now if you go anywhere without shoes it’s frowned upon and in some places illegal.

We should have the right to be barefoot whenever we would like. Who gives people and businesses the right to take away our choice to wear or not wear shoes? If people don’t want to look at my little piggies, then just don’t look.

Growing an Identity

Not too long ago my Twitter account was hacked into, I felt like someone stole my identity. At first I was worried but then I realized I didn’t know who I was back then. So in a way it wasn’t really me that got hacked, but a faceless version of whom I thought I was. Sometimes you need to step back to see the difference between whom you thought you were and who you are.

I always felt that I had to create this image of myself, to have the latest clothes, and act a certain way to get people to like me. Like many young people I looked in magazines, on Television, and in movies to see whom I wanted to be like.

There are so many role models out there it is hard to narrow out whom to look up to. Many of them are not who they say they are. They walk around with a fake facade, only showing what they want us to see. We look up to people whose intentions become fuzzy over time. And after a while we realize we have no idea what they stand for anymore.
