Not knowing what the meaning is until the end.
“Don’t tell someone to get over it. Help them through it.”
The beginning of the school year, I didn’t know what to expect. I thought it was gonna be like any other English class, but I was wrong. I was different, but not in a bad way.
“Don’t blame people for disappointing you. Blame yourself for expecting too much from them.”
Expectations. There are expectations all around us, circling us where ever we go, like a hawk circling around it’s prey, waiting to attack. Everyone has expectations and if you don’t succeed in those expectations you feel like you didn’t succeed, you’ll wish you had succeeded but you can’t change the past you have to continue. It’s just like taking a test, if you don’t pass you feel that you failed, but you can’t change the past, you just have to keep going. Some expectations we don’t know about, like something is invisible to, or something that can’t be seen, or some we know about and we try and reach those expectations, but sometimes you can’t reach them. People expect us to be like someone, they expect us to be as good as them, well some people aren’t.
The worst of the pain
“There are two kinds of pain in this world. Pain that hurts, and pain that alters.”
- Denzel Washington
Pain comes in many forms. For me, pain is everywhere, pain is everything, it jut depends on how much it hurts. Pain isn’t just being hurt, it’s emotional too. I have pain in doing my chores. The amount of chores I have brings more pain.
Keep The Fire Burning
“We need to be aware of suffering, but we must retain our clarity and strength so we can help transform the situation."
The lights at the end of the tunnel is near, but not as close because you can’t see the light. We are almost over with school. Probably in about 5 weeks we are done with school work till when school starts back up again.
March Break Madness
“In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom”
- J. G. Ballard
It was the first day of the exciting March break, but with the Corona outbreak I couldn’t go anywhere, I could barely even go outside, and it was my vacation. So, I was stuck, stuck as if someone had glued me to my house and wouldn’t let me leave, I was stuck inside my house with the thought of being bored out of my mind that I would go crazy. I thought there was nothing to do other than to play x-box and watch Netflix.
Anyone can change other peoples’ opinions.
They all expect me to follow in the same path as them,
The same political party. C
Escape from others
Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.”
— Mahatma Gandhi
Sleep isn’t just sleep. Sleep can be whatever you want, you just have to dream it. Once to go to sleep you escape from the real world, your problems and worries. When you sleep the worries and problems o yesterday fade away in a instant.
Determination leads to success
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something.
The ball glazes against the net. My friend and I were dominating in spike-ball. Finn and I were determined to win the game. There was this task we needed to finish. It was just like any other recess, but this recess was a little but different.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world”
- Mahatma Gandhi
I hope their people who don't judge others by how they look. I hope their are people who aren’t too quick to judge. I hope that people understand eachother better. I hope places are safer so when you’re walking around the streets you don’t feel in danger, you feel safe.
