The January Birthstone is a garnet, which symbolizes friendship and trust. According to legend, wearing a garnet ensures success and health. It also symbolizes victory, truth, and purity and provides protection against negative energy and forces.
I support net neutrality, and always will. This is something important you may want to know about me. As a small blogger, this fundamental concept is super important to anyone who has used the internet (so all of you who are reading this).
For those of you who don’t know what net neutrality is, I’ve included an excerpt from savetheinternet.com:
I randomly decided to clean my entire room (not including my closet. That nightmare is a story for another time) a couple weeks ago. It is surprising how having a clean space to work really boosted my productivity!
Taylor announced her new song ‘Gorgeous’ on Thursday with a teaser of the beginning of the song and 2 pink posts that read ‘Midnight Eastern’ and ‘Available Everywhere’.
I’ll be honest: I seriously thought about staying up to listen to it. I also considered going to bed, but setting my alarm for midnight so I could wake up, listen to the song, and then go back to bed. I was worried that if I did that, I wouldn’t be able to fall back asleep!
It’s really starting to kick in. And I think I’m losing it.
I’m just gonna be honest: I’m a procrastinator (side note: I have a hilarious TED talk you need to watch if you are a procrastinator, know a procrastinator, or have been on the same planet as a procrastinator: ted.com/tim_urban_mind_of_a_procrastinator). Usually, the Panic Monster (see TED talk above) sets in before it’s too late. But sometimes, the Panic Monster is bound with a LEGO chain, buried under party invitations and snuffed out by The Winds Of Something More Fun Than The Thing You Have To Do.
Because of this, I have a lot of studying to do. This is the part where I list off everything I have to do.
So I had a little time this morning, and I thought to myself: why not post one of my poems? I copied it from the Word document and pasted it here, did a little revising and editing and now, dear critics, it is yours to tear apart.
In Humanities, we have been writing poems. We were assigned to write a poem about something we believe in (a motto, phrase or slogan), where we are (location, mind, family) and where we’re from (traditions, family, events).
I feel obligated to share these with you guys. I really hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them! Be on the lookout later this week, as I will try and post them by Friday afternoon.
I never announced that I was taking a break, and I didn’t even realize that I would. I have been meaning to post for some time, but I never really had the chance.
In seventh grade, your grades really count towards high school. You take the tests in 8th, but in 7th is where the stress comes. With an average of 4 homework-heavy classes a day (yes, I did the math) plus other classes that may or may not give homework, we have ourselves a full evening of homework, test prep, and after-school activities.
It started with a blackout. Taylor Swift’s social media accounts collectively were wiped. Profile pictures, posts and even who she was following was all erased. Taylor Nation went into a frenzy and #TS6iscoming began trending as Swifties prepared for a new album.
Then, 3 cryptic snake videos were posted on an otherwise-blank social media page. The same day as the last snake video was released, the internet lost its mind.
I am writing this post with my brightness down to one bar because I am at my grandparent’s house and me–the genius–forgot to bring my computer charger. MAJOR FACEPALM. 🤦🏽♂️I am praying I can get through this post with my battery at 24%.
Rebecca walks into kindergarten, clutching her blue backpack tightly. When she sits criss-cross-applesauce with the rest of the group, the teacher tells everyone in the class to name their two favorite superheroes. Rebecca proudly announces “Iron Man and Catwoman!”. Nobody thinks this is a problem.
I am so happy to be celebrating Kiranmathew’s anniversary with all of you this month!
People born in July are usually introverts, but can give lots of wisdom if you listen closely. They are much smarted than anyone gives them credit for. The July gemstone is the ruby, which symbolizes love, health and wisdom. It is believed that a pure red ruby brings good luck.
As will be demonstrated in the images below, my photography skills have ever-so-slightly improved. I think the photo I am most proud of would have to be the close-up of the grass at the park. As the greenery stretches out behind the blades of grass, they become more and more unrecognizable, melting into each other, while the original blades stand out in the front.
China just set up the world’s largest solar farm, and get this: IT FLOATS. The farm has a capacity of 40 megawatts, enough to power 15,000 homes. It occupies 800,000 square meters in an area where coal was once mined.
June is a happy and sad time for a lot of people. It means that school is letting out, and in grades like 5th, 8th and 12th, it means saying goodbye to your friends as you will be moving onto Middle School, High School or College.
That being said I want to thank the members of my 6th Grade class for a truly memorable year. Especially Aidan, Giacomo, and Oscar, who will be changing schools next year.
People born in June are usually extroverts, and enjoy being around lots of people. The June birthstone is pearl, which symbolizes cheerfulness and inner beauty. I have to disagree though–I believe everyone has both inner and outer beauty, not just people born in June (nothing against people born in June. You’re beautiful too😉)
You’ll notice this post is colored with the rainbow. This is because June is Pride Month! Yipee!! (*insert a bazillion rainbow flag emojis*).
Have a great month everyone, and I’ll be sure to post more.
