I have an open mind. I thought this was a good thing, because my life wouldn’t be so narrow. I learned a lesson: People will try to stuff your mind with things, whether good or bad, and you’re forced to believe and act as if it’s normal, because you have an open mind. It isn’t. Don’t consider everything as normal. Especially when it comes to gender issues, because you never know which places tolerate or condemn gender issues.
Back in school, me and my classmates used to create couples. Yes, we shipped them. No, I don’t remember mixing their names together. (To ship two people means to fantasize about them going out together, btw, but the Grade 6 did mix the names of their couples. You’ve got AirBag (Gab and Ria) and S&R (Sean and Ria), to name a few.) My otp (one true pairing, meaning your favorite ship) was Ketiara (Karl and Tiara, don’t kill me on social media).
I’m not an adult, but I’m guessing the shipping still continues. Not just with women, but also with men. Really, guys, I know you’re thinking of friends who you suspect will tie the knot with their significant other. With women, they love chatting with each other about the latest gossip about celebrities.
I’m about to enter my teenage years, and I’m guessing that the shipping is going to get more interesting and intense. I know friendship issues are going to get more serious, because I have experienced some, and at this point I can’t answer this question confidently: Who are you going to be when you grow up? People start out like that, but not everyone gets the job they want.
Face it, at some point in school you chanted this: (insert name) and (insert name) sitting on a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G! It drove the couple insane with embarrassment. What if adults did that to their attached friends? Would that be okay? Maybe not.
Love is in the air, not just for adults and teens, but for kids too. Everyone had a crush at some point. I won’t lie to you when I say that I tried to kiss a girl in Grade 1. In Grade 4, Eli proposed to Rose. (I’ve clipped their names for less embarrassment). However, if you’re too young to think about your special someone, then let your love show to your parents. Who says they can’t be your special someone?
Today, I’m starting to give Book Reviews. In that category, I will write my own opinions about any book I’ve read. Let’s start with: The Report Card by Andrew Clements.
Mother’s Day was yesterday. In my opinion, it had a lot of ups and downs, and my iPod caused most of the downs. I made up for it by a letter and a massage. And a blog post.
Mother’s Day is the day when we honor the women who play a big role in our lives. They were the ones who carried you in their tummies, no matter how heavy you were, for 9 months straight. Then, they spend most of their lives taking care of you, leading you to the right path, until you are old enough to live on your own. They were the ones who attended all your school events, who gave you advice on what to do in certain situations, and loved you unconditionally.
Despite all this, mothers are humans, not angels. Therefore, they can still lose their patience, get tired, and they deserve to be noticed for their hard work. Let’s all thank our mothers and tell them “I love you” not just on Mother’s Day but EVERYDAY. Tell Dad “I love You” as well. Greet your grandmother Happy Mother’s Day too, since they took care of your mom when they were small.
Now, I just read on Buzzfeed that people on Twitter are using this hashtag #SorryMom to confess their sins to their moms. I found it on Twitter and they were funny and heartfelt, as if they felt really guilty. To Mom, I’m really sorry that I wasn’t able to make you as happy as you wanted to be and made you feel you were not able to lead me to the right path. I will always love you forever, Mom.
