Joyas Voladoras

Thats a funny name up there isnt it? /|\ I think it is. Anyway, This essay had so much meaning to it in ways that were so subtle, if you didnt pay attention, you wouldnt have noticed the subliminal messages hidden inside the words of this essay. The meaning I took away from it was that it doesnt matter how big your heart is, or how much you try to barricade it from the rest of the world. If something strikes you the right way, it could either war your heart like, "the sweet apple berath of a child" or it could break your hert like , "a cat with a broken spine dragging itself into the forest to die." This essay made me rethink life, not neccesarily in a positive way, but not in a bad way, I just kind of thought about life a little more with each paragraph of this essay. My favorite line was, "each heart made silent, a brilliant music stilled." It was so inspiring to me and held so much meaning that I actually went home and thought about it, which I never normally do with anything that deep and meaningful. This essay had realy made me rethink what I have done with my life so far and what is in the future. And I realized that my life will be full of love and loss, and through it all, I will have to keep on moving.

Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen: The Next Line

In the song, Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen, the lyrics, are quite interesting. They consist of only true advice that could really help you in your life when you get shipped out of High School and even college. Though, there were only two pieces of advice that really struck me as interesting. one of those pieces of advise was, "Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself." Another really useful piece of advice was, "Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own." The only piece of advice that I would add to this song is, don't let people bring you down;take them down with you if you let them get to you. This song is truly motivational in every single way and it can teach everyone who listens to it a very important life lesson, whether you realize it or not

Something Worth Learning

             Now I know that there are useless pieces of knowledge, eagerly waiting for someone to learn their secrets and spread them around the community, but is it worth it? Is it worth taking up space;wasting your time for something that you will forget in the next hour or so? Not even a little bit. Now, I'm not going to give you factual information on something that I find worth learning about, I'm not going to ramble on about something amazing that I discovered the other day, no. I'm going to tell you a life lesson, not one that you've all heard like, "don't do drugs," or something cliche like, "life is unfair." I'm going to give you, "something worth learning."
              It's plain and simple really. Life is what you make of it. Think about it for a second, it could blow your mind, or maybe not, maybe, you've already thought about that and you're thinking right now, "Oh my god, here we go again." It really is something worth learning because, if you are a person veering off the good path in life, if you remember that very simple life lesson, it could save you from a life of drugs, alcohol, and all those terrible things.
               I told you it wasn't cliche, or stupid and corny, it can really help you. If you're in a bad spot in your  life an you want to get yourself out of it, this statement pops into your mind and can possibly save your life from a long road of misery and despair. And best of all Mrs. Mystrena, it's something actually worth learning. Whether people actually tell it to you hands on, or indirectly, its a life saving life lesson that everyone should know and love.
