Experience

A common belief in life is that once you leave high school, you choose your field and essentially stick with it till you retire. Anyone who doesn’t follow this path is often looked down upon because they “quit” what they initially thought they would do. But just because you don’t follow through with something doesn’t mean you crashed the car it just means you took a wrong turn.

Materialism

Iphone 6, the new Apple computer, or the for some the new 2015 Shelby GT250. What do they all have in common?

The manufacturing and marketing companies have brainwashed our society and people into believing that¬†what they have isn’t enough. For example, as the new Samsung Galaxy 5 came out a few months ago. I, then and still now had the Samsung Galaxy 4. I remember wanting the S5 so bad, yet my S4 worked perfectly and could do almost all the things that the S5 could do.

The Wheel Of Appearance Revolves Quickly

One of the most important things I have learned in all my years of school is how much people change. I knew people in elementary school that if I ever tried to connect with that person they used to be it would be futile because of how much they changed. I am no exception, in eighth grade I was 5’1 and 120 pounds and if you can’t already figure it out, out of shape. But just a year later I was 5’5 and a 125 pounds, and In much better shape because I had added a fair bit of muscle mass. One of my closest friends in elementary school, who shall remain nameless, used to be a very studious and lovable kid, once we reached middle school we began to drift apart and became a “nerd”, but today he is a big meat headed football player, and I’m not exactly sure if he maintained his grades but I’d bet he didn’t. While I do believe it is wrong to make broad generalizations about people, I feel as though putting it in relative terms such as “nerd” or “meat headed” makes it easier to see the change.

Rainy Days

Its that time of year again when sky gets darker, lights become brighter, and the smell of hot chocolate fills the air. Its that time where people really feel the holiday spirit. It may be hard to believe but here in California, land of the tan surfers, we feel it too. In California, we don’t have snow blanket the streets, or ice on the windows, but we do get some pretty intense winds and the occasion rainy day. Its on these rainy days that I really feel the holiday spirit the most.

Raining/Cold Weather And Its Stigma

Why do people not like to venture out into the world when it is raining? I believe that it is because of what we experience when we are children.

Our mothers (or guardians) have brainwashed it into our brains. They have placed a image that going outside while it is raining or cold will make you sick. That is a total lie. People get sick in the winter because people tend to hole up inside their houses and bacteria is spread all that easier. They do not have the proper ventilation in side of their homes and, what causes the most trouble is, the heating system. The dry air leads to dry nasal passage ways and that helps in giving viruses a “toehold” in your system. Read more here.
