Weekly Recap #1

This week was a roller-coaster for me personally, but also the news these days has been intense.

Joan Rivers passed away, which was quite controversial as many people had different opinions on her intense nature.

Personally, I don’t find this news worthy of some of my research skills. Was she a great person or was she really quite terrible? While this debate certainly says a lot about media and society, I have papers to write and sleep to be had. The only thing that happened this week that I actually want to talk about is how one of my mangers at work thought Betty White died!

Clearly, she didn’t.

Betty White headline on CNN.

Thank goodness as she’s the only famous person over the age of 80 that anyone actually cares about.

You know what I wished the news covered more? Everything that is going on with Gaza, as I can’t figure out exactly what is happening for the life of me.

If I ever figure it out, I will be sure to let you know!

How about you? What kind of news did you wish got more coverage? Let me know in the comments below!




My Life

I apparently wrote this for my history class back in January, and now we have to do a “My Life” section again. I took a look at this and I wish I could just use the same one. Nothing has really changed since January. What can I say, my life is simple!

There’s never really much going on in my life. Not anything tangible anyway. My life does not include sports, a job, or even going to church. What activities I do are ones that are done last minute and thought of at the spur of the moment. Makes it interesting. It includes lots of projects that are left undone and abandoned.

But anyway, school this year has been interesting so far. That’s all, not much else going on there. Home. Home’s been fine. I am in my room a lot though. People who read, write, draw, and make videos, tend to do a lot alone. It works.

The other activity I have is playing guitar. Definitely glad I learned how to play. It’s been fun- that’s all that I can put about that.

As far as failures this school year, there’s nothing I’d label as a failure. While certain things were left undone, others were more important. I am glad I trusted my own decisions. If only I could do everything.
On the other side, I have successfully been pretty unsuccessful. I’ve maintained everything I already had, just lack any improvement, but I have seen a lot of people moving backwards- falling grades worsening attitudes.

Success does not matter to me, at least most of the time it doesn’t. We cannot hope for a happy result from everything we do, I just try to enjoy the outcome and make something out of it. “Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed”- Corita Kent.
