XC Cross Country Project

XC Cross Country is the best. For those that know cross country I just said Cross Country Cross Country is the best. An inside joke between my friends and I.

You gotta be a little crazy to run XC. I mean, running over seven miles a day, day in and day out you gotta have something wrong with yourself. But hands down cross country (at least in my school) is the best sport atmosphere wise.

Aww, Farewell. Or Is It?

What is the worst thing in the world? Well maybe not the worst thing cause there’s still cancer, poverty, and other calamities, but perhaps it falls in the top one hundred. Watching a really good show, getting really attached to it, spending all your free time watching it. Then it ends. That feeling of utter depression. Feeling of deprivation. Sadness.

Brawl

In my English class we recently had a brawl. Before you assume their was a massive fight in a school, let me clarify that a brawl is a form of debate.

I found it quite beneficial for several reasons. First of all, it helped me concoct my own ideas about ethical dilemmas in today’s world. One of the questions was one my group thought of where we said is it okay to enact vengeance on someone who wrongs you. I personally am I believer in karma (the belief that whatever you do comes back to you; good or bad) so using that logic I feel like that you have the right and the RESPONSIBILITY to enact vengeance.

Like Flying A Kite

If I had to describe my blogging experience I would compare it to flying a kite. I’m not sure if this is just me but whenever I attempt to fly a kite it takes me forever to get the thing in the air, but once its in the air its a whole new struggle, keeping it there, but once I complete these to Herculean tasks its smooth sailing and nothing but smiles. When I try and start a blog it takes me what seems like an eternity to come up with an idea and then I spend the remainder of my lifetime finding a creative or unique way to articulate the idea.

How to Break the Awkward Silence In Group Hangouts

I found this post on my friends blog and I thought it was really cool because it attacks multiple issues in life. First of all, we have all had those awkward moments and not known what to do but after reading this blog I have a couple of legitimate conversation starters. As well as doing helping a common problem, it address an even larger one. It mentions how people are stuck on their phones. But it provides a simple solution, instead of sitting by yourself on your phone share what you are doing so you can enjoy it with whoever you are with.

people on their phones

It happens quite often when I sit with a group of friends, hanging out…but we aren’t really hanging out.. We’re all looking at the screens on our phone. It happened to me once where it was with my cross country team and all we did was sat their staring at our video, or game, etc. I personally don’t like it once I come to the realization of it but I too am guilty of it. It’s at those times where I think to myself, “What has come of this generation?.. What are we doing just sitting here, on our phones, and not having an actual conversation?” That’s when I make my attempt at trying to break the silence.

“So guys, what’s for practice today?..”

“40 minute run.”

“Cool,” I reply, “So….”

At that point I knew this conversation was to heavy to carry and that they didn’t really care to…
