It’s awesome to meet new people! I mean, real people. It just feels like you’re not the only person in the world. I just met with some of the staff of my practicum school for next year, new staff that I’ll be working with this summer and someone I know. Going out of the house and spending time outside for a while is awesome. Especially this summer, I will be outside a lot since I’m working! It’s a good time to meet new friends! Actually, any day is a great time to meet people.
So I leave you today with a quote:

I took a bus this morning to go the Blockbuster to buy pre-viewed DVDs (50- 70% off sale!). I hopped on the bus, and seated at the back of the bus. Seconds later, we were passing by a church where a funeral mass was about to start: a casket with beautiful flowers on top of it was being transferred from the funeral car to the church. As I glanced through the doors of the church, two or three people were holding either a camera or a phone and quite possibly, based on their gestures, taking a video of the whole thing. As I witnessed this and while the bus continuously moves forward, leaving that scene behind, I thought about this:
Would you want your funeral to be recorded?
I immediately answered no. I mean, I don’t want to leave my friends and family a video about the day I am buried in the ground. They don’t need to re-watch such an event.
So asked the same question to you: would you want your funeral to be captured on video?
P.S. I didn’t get a chance to buy some sweet DVDs. Turns out, the store location I went to was already closed.
I hate when people proclaim that their bored (I admit that I do this too sometimes) and writes it as their status in Facebook. I mean, why? Why are you bored? Why don’t you do something to free yourself up from boredom? There are so many things that you can do! Do your homework, housework, walk, run, write a blog, play games, watch movies, talk to a friend, make love, invent something, fantasize, criticize. There are endless possibilities.
I saw this photo a while ago and reflected on the statement: only boring people are bored.
Indeed, it is on how you act that defines who you are. And you can always change it because you have a choice. You are the one who makes the decisions about your life; It eventually comes down to what you want for yourself.
So…get up, and do something different. Don’t be boring, be bold! Life offers many opportunities! Do not waste them.
