Are you a nemophilist?
Ever since we were little kids we were told that trees are vital for our existence, but now a days we seem to forget that. It is impossible to know the exact number of trees ever cut down, but last year alone there was 15 billion trees cut! Thats nearly double the world’s population! Don’t get me wrong cutting down trees can have its pro’s, but think of the con’s. Think of the amount of animals loosing their shelter.
I encourage you to go outside and plant a tree, just like I did. Last summer I took a road trip and T was amazed to see all the trees being planted. Sure, they will probably be cut down in a few years, but they can do good to the environment now. See when a tree is cut down it can no longer absorb carbon dioxide . And that results in large greenhouse gases reaching the atmosphere.
So go out and plant a tree, theres already lots of schools, communities, and people just like you doing it! And go visit a National Park, you might become a nemophilist!
Ive never been a daring person. Ive always been the person that either backs out last minute or makes a lame excuse to not participate. I don’t know why but when I’m about to do something daring I just thing of all the ways I could die. I go to an amusement park and all I can think about is the ride malfunctioning and me dying. I go to the beach and all I can think about is a shark coming and biting me. Ive been like this since I was a child, I don’t know where or who I got it from. I envy those who aren’t afraid to try daring things, like skydiving, scuba diving, swimming with sharks, riding the highest roller coasters, or bungee jumping. I only hope to one day be as brave and daring as them.
I dare you to try something new
whether its a new food, sport or tv show, just try something new. who knows you might end up liking it
As for me, as much as i can try to get rid of my phobias of heights, sharks, drowning, the list goes on,I probably never will. But you know what I can do? I can be daring in my school or community. I can try to make new friends, which I’ve never been good at, but I can sure as hell try. The point is to be daring and with enough effort I can do that, might be a lame try, but a try none the less.
So I decided to take a break, not only from blogging but the internet. See I spent the entire first halve of 2016 on my computer, phone, and tv. my schedule was like this- school, computer, sleep, repeat. I wasn’t in a very good mental, to put it nicely. Summer came around and I had the idea to start a blog for many reasons. So I did and I found myself happy, something I hadn’t been in a while. And then I started getting lazy. As much as I tried to keep the commitment I made with myself to blog at least once a week, I couldn’t. Once that happen I decided to take a break from all of the internet, social media, and tv. my phone was pretty much useless. Giving up texting was by far the easiest because I’ve never been much of a texting kind of person. Giving up my computer was a whole other story. The first month, which was august was easy. I had more free time in a week than I did the first 6 months of 2016. then it was September, and what happens in September, school. I rarely had any free time, once I finished my homework and chores, I got such a large temptation to watch tv or sleep. I just didn’t have enough energy to do anything productive. That month of September I found my self missing soccer and blogging. I used to love soccer, I played from age 3 to 14. when I turned 14 I just stopped playing soccer, I can’t explain why I did it, I just did. The month of September I got depressed again. Part of me really wanted to go back to blogging, but I didn’t want to make a promise to myself that I wasn’t going to keep. Near the end of September there was a day where I just cried, for no reason at all, I just couldn’t stop. thats when I knew I had to change something. So I decide to start blogging again. I needed a way to share my feelings. I am going to try to post as much as possible,but not too much that it starts feeling like a job rather than a hobby. Im limiting my self to only 2 hours of tv and computer now. I am going to try really hard this school year, not only to improve my grades, but also my mental state.
So today when i woke i had the choice of writing a post or enjoying the day here in Miami. So like most people would do, i decide to enjoy the day. So we spent the day at the beach, and then we went back to our hotel in Downtown Miami. Like most people her in the US do on the 4th of July we went to see some Fireworks. And as i watched the amazing fireworks and heard the popping noise i was thinking of what i would post the next day. Never in a million years did i think i would be posting this. When the fireworks ended we went to go see the free concert happening in Bayside Miami. As we were nodding our head to the beat we started to see people running. People were all saying and screaming different things that we had no idea of what was really going on. But as we put two and two together, we came to the realization that there was someone with a gun. So we then immediately ran for our lives. As we ran the only thing i could think about was calling my mom. (i came to Miami with my aunts family and my brother). part of me was thinking not to call her and worry her, but another part of me was thinking that if these moments are really my last then i want to tell her that i love her. I haven’t always been the nicest to my mom and i don’t tell her i love her nearly enough. I finally decide to call her. So i did and i told her we were fine and not to worry. Then we finally got to the hotel with our hearts beating, tears coming down our eyes, and our minds lost. We still don’t know what really happened and if anyone got hurt, but the only thing one my mind right now is getting the hell out of here. All thats happening right now, not only here in the US but all around the world really make me depressed. Today was a day to enjoy the independent of this once great country, but instead some idiot decides to take a gun somewhere families are enjoying a day they thought was going to be a good one. I believe there is good people in this world, but they are running out quickly.
Islands terrify me. Who wouldn’t want a vacation on a tropical island? Yep, me. One thing that terrifies me about islands is the island sinking. I know what your thinking, highly unlikely but with the water levels rising everyday it could happen. Theres a conspiracy theory that i read that apparently many people believe which is that global warming is not real and it was made up by the government. Crazy i know. But if you do believe in global warming then you are must likely aware of what it is doing. Another thing that terrifies me of islands is the sea animals. Just like another beach islands have barriers to stop animals like sharks from coming into the shore. But an island is surrounded by water and animals. Ive never been on an island before but i hope that in the future i will overcome my fear and spend time on a island.
they’re always there
every time you look up at the air
Most of the time they’re white
sometimes they block out the light
trust me they are impish
don’t forget stratus
those wont break lattice
If you live by or in a very visited place, you know of this far too much. Whether they get in your way while going to work or they ask you to take a picture for them, you despise them. But you can’t hate them too much because we have all been a tourist at one point of our lives. Most people when they travel they take pictures of everything. When i travel with my mom she wants to take family pictures in front of everything. My sister likes to take pictures of the scenery with her professional camera. My brother he takes pictures with his phone for instagram or snapchat. As for myself, i don’t really take pictures. Ill take one just so i can post it on instagram so people know I’m still alive. But other then that i don’t really take pictures. I’ll have the memory in my head so i dont need pictures to remind me.
