Have no fear, Spring is near!

Very often I here from so many people of how they want spring to come faster because of all the nice weather, blooming nature, and no school. So to all those people, have no fear because spring is most definitely near.
In my opinion, spring is probably the most laziest season of all because it's when the days get a drastic change into a cool, more laid-back type of mood. Combine that with all the school days off and you'll have yourself the laziest, most "chill" season of all.
But I have nothing against spring. I myself am also a lazy person so I love when the weather changes and everything becomes so calm outside. It gives me the sense of relaxation and purification of the mind.
In fact, I wrote this blog to remind myself not to complain, but to rather enjoy the winter while it's still here. Who knows? Maybe in the middle of the hot and dry days of summer I'll be missing the winter.

Snow Snow Snow

As everyone can see, there happened to be a bunch of snow that fell this past week. It was particularly one of the greatest weeks I've ever had. This is because of multiple reasons; not just the snow. For starters, I hung out with my friends a lot and I had a lot of fun over the week. Another reason I loved this past week is because we had almost no school.
The school I attend to has a block schedule meaning we have A-days and B-days. Thus, I didn't have an A-day for an entire week which gave me a lot more free time to do what I want. Of course the back-breaking shoveling was horrible but it was worth it in the end because I was able to have a sleepover with my friend.

Traveling

I love traveling. I think it's great. A spectacular adventure. I love how every place you travel to is new. A new setting. A new experience. No matter if it's over oceans or across land, a new destination always fascinates me. Last summer while my sister went to the Dominican Republic on a program called Amigos, my mom and I went on a road trip to my aunt and cousins down in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a great journey for me and I enjoyed single moment of it. Even though it was a 12 hour drive and there wasn't much to do I still liked it because I got to drive most of the time. Also half way we stopped by a hotel and spent the night there which was great for me too because I love staying at hotels. I don't really know what it is about traveling that I adore so much but I think it's just the plain old fact that it's a new place you're going to. A new place means new people, new cultures, new environment, etc. which leads to having even more fun. Also, I think my family and I are going to Georgia once more this winter break and I'm looking forward to it. Traveling just amazes me in ways that are unimaginable. Which would probably make it my favorite thing to do.

How To Make A Cookie

So I've been thinking. I take a cooking class and I've taken in a lot from it so why not share the knowledge? So for today I've prepared the quick and easy way to making some delicious homemade cookies.
First come the ingredients: 1 cup of butter, 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 3/4 cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 eggs, 2 1/4 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 2 cups of chocolate chips.
Now come the steps in making the cookies.
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a big bowl pour in the flour, salt, and baking soda and mix gently. In a larger bowl beat the butter in and mix after adding the brown and white sugar. After combining all those, add the vanilla extract and eggs and mix thoroughly. Then, slowly add the bowl of prior ingredients into the larger bowl and mix until they're completely combined. Add the chocolate chips in and you should be done with your cookie dough. Next, on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper add golf ball sized amounts of dough. Don't forget to leave a little room between the cookies because they spread while they're baking. Leave the cookies in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until they brown. When they're ready take the them out of the oven and place on a cooling rack or anything that can serve as one and give some time for the cookies to cool down. Finally eat and enjoy!
See, it's not too hard. But don't underestimate the skills of baking cookies. They can turn out bad if not treated well. So try it! Go get the supplies and make some amazing homemade cookies.

a Final End, and a New Beginning

I woke up today thinking it'd be another freezing day and that I'd have to double up all my clothing. But to my surprise I stepped outsde into a warm atmosphere with a kind of soothing mood. I soon realized that this weather won't stay long. A new front was coming in. A cold one. Autumn would soon be leaving us and a new season would be rolling in; Winter.
To me winter is fine and all but I truly despise one thing about it. Beside the fact that I feel like I'm going to freeze my toes off, snow is my main hatred. While growing up I was in love with snow. It fascinated me in ways no one can possibly imagine. But as I grew older, my interest in snow bored me as the winters passed. I used to play in it every day, savoring all the moments I can get before the winter passed, but now I step outside and look at it with disgust.
I dislike how it doesn't do anything other than blocking the streets resulting in mass amounts of traffic. It's cold, harsh details make winter impossible to enjoy.
But now that I realize winter will always be here I've learned to accept it. In the end snow is inevitable so I just let it be. So as fall comes to an end and winter begins I'll find new aspects of winter to enjoy for example, the holidays and its no-school days. And with that I wish you a nice winter.

Happy Birthday, Earth

The Earth turned 6015 years old yesterday says Bishop Ussher. According to his calculations God created the earth on October 23, 4004 BC. At approximately 10 a.m. I thought this was extremely interesting considering the fact that no one can actually know exactly. I like these sorts of situations where the problem is truly unsolvable. How we humans can never find out when the earth formed. Ussher also said that it looks horrible for its age. That she actually looks 4.55 billion years old.
I find this remarkable because even though we realize how bad of a state our world is in we don’t do anything to help it. I feel that there should be an international program to help our world out a bit. Because considering the status of it, the only way we’re ever going to get anything done is little by little.

Water is not for granted

To an average American water is taken for granted. But to other people out of the states they're lucky to get at least one cup of water everyday. People think of water as a guarantee and that it'll never run out but when really no should think like that. Some people who don't get water should be tended to and receive an equal amount of water everyday. If everyone in the US were to give one cup of water to someone it would be more than enough to feed people who don't get water that often and that's only ONE cup. If we were to give a gallon to that same person then that would be even more than enough. And given the fact that an average american consumes more than a gallon of water everyday it seems reasonable.
