More than Precious

Here is a memoir i made for english, it's my most precious memory, hope you like it,

More than Precious

Have you ever received something precious, something you’ll always cherish; a gem, a piece
of jewelry, or a gift? I know what it’s like to have something you cherish. In my case it’s not an
object; but a memory.

Still and silent, not a sound vibrates through the air. It is as if the world is moving in slow
motion. As I lay in my bed of cocooned warmth I embrace the quiet. I peer through the lid
of my eyes and things slowly fall back into reality. I feel the warmth of the sun gently touch
my face and I smile; it’s a new day; a day to explore, a day to create, and a day to just be me.

I stretch feeling the crisp sheets under me move as I move. It’s the best feeling ever; half asleep and knowing that there is no school. I take a deep breath and I open my eyes fully as I look at the dolls and toys on the surfaces of the room around me. It’s my personal world, a place where I feel safe and comfortable. Suddenly, I hear a sound.

It’s the sound of pots and pans clanking in the kitchen. Smiling I bolt out of bed; dads up! I
break into a huge grin because dad plus kitchen noise equals one awesome weekend breakfast. I
quickly scramble out of bed and eagerly tip toe across my room towards the door. It’s as if my
room is an obstacle course. I dodge soft plushies, and books but I finally make it to the door.

Slowly I reach for the golden door handle and turn it ever so quietly; I don’t want anyone to
know I am awake. I push the door and let it swing open, cringing at the small squeak. But finally the door is open, and I am immediately hit with the smell of bacon and eggs. My mouth starts to
water. I can’t wait until it’s ready. My stomach starts to grumble as I tip toe down the
hallway towards the kitchen, wanting to see a breakfast in progress.

The kitchen door is already open, so I peek around the frame and look into the warm blue
coloured room. The room smells wonderfully of eggs, bacon, and toast, which I see spread out
all over the counter where my dad is cooking. As the eggs fall into the pan they sizzle to life.
He cooks with certainty and skill, and knows exactly what he’s doing. I jump a little as the
toaster pops into life unexpectedly. My dad turns towards the door and smiles. He waves at me to come forward into the kitchen, so I do.

My dad asks if I want to help. Of course I want to help, so I nod eagerly and I look up at my
dad as if to ask what I can do. He thinks for a moment and then smiles. The next thing I know, I am assigned the job of toast. He shows me how to put the thick Texas style toast into the little
white toaster and push down the handle. I learn quickly as I repeat his movements. I watch as the wires heat up and turn red in the toaster, just as I start getting bored; the toaster pops loudly!

My first task complete, I wonder what to do next. My dad then shows me how to scoop and
spread the butter on the toast. I make note of what he does and prepare to repeat it. I take my
silver knife and stick it into the butter and I take a big yellow clump. I then turn to my perfectly
toasted toast and I go to spread the butter like my dad has shown me. It’s not working. I try
again, but instead of the butter spreading nicely and evenly, it comes out clumpy and messy.
Frustrated, I throw the knife onto the brown counter top.

Then, my dad comes back towards the toast area. He must have noticed my anger because he
calmly tells me to pick up the knife again. Sighing I grab the knife with my left hand and grip it
tightly in frustration. My dad calmly takes my hand and slowly turns the knife so the blade faces downwards. He tells me to try again with the knife this way. I dip my knife into the butter and pull out another blob. I stare down towards my crispy toast. Here goes nothing! I spread the butter the way my dad showed me; blade down.

The knife smoothly spreads across the surface of the toast, gliding with ease; no clumps or
bumps this time! I did it! With the knife in hand I smile up at my dad who smiles right back.

This is what is precious, this is what I hold dear; a Memory. There will never be another like
it, I can never recreate it; it will be something that I’ll always cherish. Because when you lose
someone you hold dear, like I did my dad, every memory is more than precious.

You Really Shouldn't

I'm in A Develish Mood

Have you ever been in that mood where you just want to do something you really know you shouldn’t for no apparent reason? Like knocking down a card castle while someone is making it, or breaking a plate for no reason, or even sticking a knife in a toaster because you know it’s something you really shouldn’t be doing. I don’t know, but I feel like that right now.

Hey, hey, hey, I know what you’re thinking, “this girl is nuts! Why would I ever want to do something like that?” But just admit it, you know you get that feeling sometimes where you just want to do something stupid/dangerous/completely inappropriate just because you can.

Don’t tell me you’ve never wanted to run outside in the winter time with your shorts and t-shirt to rebel against winter, or wear those socks and sandals cause it is a fashion faux pas, or (dare I say it) get that urge to reply to that insane question someone wrote on the bathroom stall. Yes, we all get this feeling people, just admit it. J

I for one am completely and utterly admitting to getting this feeling, and sometimes act on it, (when it doesn’t involve injuring myself, breaking something, or if it’s illegal) So for tonight I decided to write a list about things I want to do, but NEVER EVER actually do when I get this feeling.

1. Sticking a knife in a toaster, (don’t even question me, I would never do this!)
2. Slapping someone unexpectedly
3. Walking on a cactus
4. Licking a knife
5. Making grilled cheese blindfolded. (This one I’m considering doing in 2011, it’s on my list of things to do this year. )
6. Throwing a ceramic mug
7. Punch my Laptop
8. Drop kick a pair of scissors
9. Open a pop can with my teeth
10. (This is a terrible one that I know I would get straight back ten fold) Slapping my sister.

New Start

Fresh and New: Semester Two

The smell of never before written on paper, the refreshing sensation of being fully rested, and the awesomeness of knowing you wont have too much homework in the next week; that my friends, is the beginning of a new semester. I always Love new semesters, they are a fresh start, (it also helped that I now never have to take another math or science course ever again! :D) and a great introduction to future courses that you might be thinking of taking.

Currently it is unofficially day two of the second semester, the first day was Tuesday. I know your thinking how does that work seeing as its Thursday today. Well that can only be described as a wonderful gift; and that gift from Mother Nature is a great thing Canadians call a snow day. Yup when the board members declare the weather conditions are too bad, or there is too much snow and all the students excitedly get to sleep in. That is the best part about living in Canada. J
This semester should be extremely easy for me, but also incredibly taxing seeing as I have two English courses,( Media studies, and University English), Drama (which we are doing the school play) as well as religion. Very easy but an incredible work load. I think the only thing that will keep me sane, is probably blogging, and a new book I bought today!

“The Book of Awesome” is just that, an awesome book. It explains 1000 awesome things n daily life that just makes you feel good. Some examples I enjoyed so far were things like: “ popping bubble wrap, illegal napping, when your driving and you see a police car but realize your going the speed limit, as well as high fiving a baby because they never leave you hanging.” It’s a really good book to read if you want something light and funny to read.

Lastly for this entry today, I just wanted to say that the poem I entered into the remembrance day contest, (which I blogged bout November 11) made first place in my school! And now is moving on to the next level, I receive an award and get to go to an awards dinner, just thought I’d share that, I really didn’t think it was going to win. :D Anyways, happy Blogging!

Nightmares Come True...

The Worst Thing Happened the Other Day...

It was a nightmare beyond a nightmare; something a teenager cringes at the thought of, so horrible that I was lost for an entire 24 hours of my life. This terrible heinous disaster... was my internet going down. D:

Honestly I thought I was going to lose my mind, I couldn’t check facebook and I was waiting for a message saying if I was going to the mall or not...

tried to blog about my predicament... well that couldn't be done.

tried to close, and restart my computer... to no avail.

I even started crying and yelling at this thing... (ok maybe I was thinking about this last one and didn’t actually do it... but still I was pretty close.)

And all because I couldn’t get online, now I really see how dependant I am on the world’s web. It really makes me think, I see people all the time glued to their iPods, cell phones, and computers walking and conducting business on the run. Have we as people become so dependant on technology that something as small as the internet going down for a day throws off our entire schedule?

Just some food for thought tonight....

Just Like in the Movies...

I Laughed So Hard I Cried....

Today was a pretty decent day, had a couple exams feeling confident about them, but that is definitely not what I decided to blog about today. I swear today was just like a movie, you know when two people are having a conversation but each thinks the other is talking about something completely different?

The funniest thing ever happened after school on a visit to Wal-Mart’s McDonalds. My mom had just purchased some antifreeze for her car and it was sitting in the cart next to the table. We found out that McDonalds now has smoothies so my mom decided to try one, she placed the smoothie right next to the cart on the table.

So yes my mom is sipping away at her smoothie, chilling and we're, ( my mom, sister and I) are all just talking away when this lady comes up to us and starts a conversation that went as such;

Lady: That's what I should have gotten!
Mom: yeah I know, (my mom then turns to me and asks what the lady was talking about because she was unsure)
Me: (whispered) she's talking about the smoothie!
Mom: Oh yeah, I didn’t know they had it here, it's my first time trying it, its actually surprisingly really good!
Lady: (Looks at us very strangely and nods) Yeaaahhhh....
Mom: (Smiling like a weirdo.)
Lady: so yeah... enjoy, I guess.
Mom: Wait, what are you talking about?
Lady: Antifreeze...
Mom: Oh my I’m talking about a smoothie!

So yes it was one of those moments where it was so ironic and coincidental that you couldn’t help but laugh until you cried. Oh my, that truly made my day!

So since I have a math exam tomorrow I decided to make a formula for the day:

Antifreeze + Smoothies = Win.

Things are Looking Up,

it has officially dawned on me that this semester is coming to a close. Im really happy about that, but there's a part of me that's going to miss the old semester. I know, it's kinda silly of me, but whatever. Today was my chemistry exam, the last chem exam I will EVER have to take, which is awesome because I really do dislike chemistry and math. (Wednesdays my last time for math EVER!) I'm going to miss Geography and History, two subjects I have come to love and adore, and both with amazingly brilliant teachers which hopefully I will get next year when they teach the twelve course.

On another note, (the irony in this statement!) I am going to see another musical! Went and saw Wicked November, it was absolutely amazing, very well done and fantastical as it is. My best amie and I went to see it and it was great we had front row seats and I know its ridiculous but i got so into the story I was in tears. This time however in May, i'm going to see the classic on stage production of the Lion King. XD I am so hyped, it better be worth it for an entire two weeks pay..... :S Thank goodness I have a job. I am excited to see it, became a fan of the group on facebook and the pics and videos are amazing. Only time will tell. :)

Lastly to wrap up this very epic/random post, I herby declare I am a Facebook addict. I promised myself when I got facebook at the beginning of the semester I wouldn't get addicted....too late. It is just too tempting to see how everyone is doing, what's going on, keeping up with my games, and of course creeping people to the max, (because I am that cool :P) It's not even a good addiction, I go on facebook when im bored, tired, lazy, and the worst when your bored of facebook, logging off, then back on to see if anything has changed... Yeah. So, thats pretty much it for the end of exam day one.

next up, History and Geography exam tomorrow :D this link explains it all......

The Title Says it All....

It is the best time of the year for high school students in ontario.... NOT!! It's exam time once again, change of semester from first to the glorious second, (I dont know about you but I deffinitely find second semester to always be the best.) stress eating, cramming, and doritos become your best friend, and procrastination causes deadly side effects.
I am going to confess, I am a major procrastinator, I tend to sit for five hours "studying" only to have spent half, (if not more) of the time on facebook, or online. In fact this entire post is an excuse for me to not study.... But, i dont want this entire post to go completely to waste, so I have decided to compile a list of things for myself, (or anyone writting an exam) that will help them/me succeed.
Seven Test Taking Tips
1. Relax, Breathe, and get some sleep! (a good nights rest = clearer head= better thinking= better marks!)
2. Eat Something that doesnt fall into the Chips food group, i know its tempting, but trust me a little water and some fruit goes a long way.
3. Revise until you feel confident. (dont over do it, dont cram, and really, really study!)
4. Take time to yourself, do something non- study related. (if you focus so much on studying chances are you will forget someting. Dont linger over it too much.)
5. DONT rely on caffeine, its just like gravity, with every up, theres going to be a down, its inevitable.
6. think positive! What's the worst that could happen? You dont get the mark you want, don't worry its not the end of the world.
7. If you're me... TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE!
