My poetry

I was angry one night and my mom suggest I write poetry, so I did ( My poetry is awful).

Happy “Nobody rains on your parade.  You make barricades to the mean and rotten, just remember you’ll never be forgotten.  Your glow makes Rudolf jealous in a good way.  I hope you have a happy day.”

Feeling Down “Woe as me when I feel no glee.  My sky is dim and my heart is being trimmed, yet you stay happy after all, I’m the one being sappy.”

Bad day “I feel dreary on the best day, but you stay happy in the weirdest ways.  Flowers grow in the dark while mine shrivel up and depart.”

Never give up “Never give up when your blue eyes go pale, when your bones become frail.  I never mean the awful things I say, I never want you to die in any way and I hope your last words aren’t on your grave.”

Diamond “You are a diamond with pressure, some can not take that pressure and remain coal, whatever you’re told, don’t unfold.  Don’t believe their bluff when they say you’re not a diamond in the rough.”

Making marshmallow treats

I made delicious marshmallow treats all by myself.  I had giant marshmallows that I dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate nibs, topped with almond shreds.  I had $20.00 budgeted to buy ingredients.  I searched online for the prices of the ingredients I required for my recipe.  I thought it would be $17.00 based on my research.  In fact, I was able to get twice as much of the ingredients I needed for only $12.03…I am a bargain shopper!  I bought 7 ingredients total:  two bags of Rice Krispie cereal, two bags of marshmallows, a carton of almond milk, one pound of butter, and one bag semi-sweet chocolate nibs.  I gave the cashier a $20.00 bill and I got back $7.97 in change (a $5 bill, 2 $1 bills, 3 quarters, two dimes and 2 pennies).  I saved $4.97 on actual groceries compared to my estimate and I have enough ingredients to make another batch.  I made ten treats in with ingredients that cost half of $12.03, which means ten treats costs $6.01 and 1/2 cent.  I can make twenty treats for the price of $12.03.

Baking Blueberry and Cracker Muffins.

My sister and I made blueberry and cracker muffins.  They were delicious, but they weren’t the best tasting muffin according to my mom (not trying to assume anything).  She said they tasted like bread, just bread.  I loved them, so it didn’t hurt my feelings when she said that about our muffins.  As long as I liked them, what she said doesn’t bother me a crumb (because muffins make crumbs).

You’re not alone when you feel this way

Everyone at some point in their lives has felt alone.  I just had that feeling a few days ago and I ran away because of that (I’m back home).  It was a bad idea.  I felt like the whole world was against me and there was no escape from that awful feeling.

Things will get better for you, things will change over time.  It takes more time and effort to run away from your problems than it does to fix them.  It’s a lot of work to make a mountain out of a molehill.  When you only think negative thoughts then you’re only going to see hate, drama and bad things.  If you think good, positive things, that’s what you will see.  You could lose friends, happiness and enjoyable time because of bad thoughts and anger.  You may go through hard times, but it can sometimes make you a better person, if you are willing to learn from it.

Sometimes things are rough, I hope you choose a joyful attitude and forgive yourself and others for their mistakes.

“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.”

What I would do to my past self when I lied.

I lied to my mom about doing work and now she is upset.  She says she doesn’t hate me, but her language and actions are telling me “YOU ARE A LET DOWN!” and I feel bad, this is what I would tell my past self   “STOP, YOU’RE MAKING AN EVEN BIGGER MISTAKE WHEN YOU LIE AND DON’T DO YOUR WORK!” at the top of my lungs.  I would probably tell her what the future holds in store for her.

Spider drawing

I drew a species of spider that I made up.  The dagger toothed spider has teeth with venom that the female uses on insects and her mate after he fertilizes the eggs.  I did of a spider from a YouTube channel called How2DrawAnimals.
