Summer Has Begun!

17 Jun

School’s finally out and now it’s summertime! Honestly, every year I end up spending more time on the computer or watching t.v. than doing something worthwhile. And come on, every year we all tell ourselves that ‘this year is going to be different! This year I will have the best summer ever!’ only to end up doing the same thing as before. Well, this is me saying that I will not let this summer die away as the computer screen burns itself into my retinas; or I am at least crossing my fingers before making a realistic goal, like how I will try to see friends more and get out of the house more often.

Here is a list of things I want to do this summer, although truthfully it’s more for me than for you to read. This is my way of motivating myself and keeping track of what I want to do, but if it ends up helping you too, than that’s great! ^_^

~Write

~Blog

~Read

~See friends more

~Call other people more often instead of waiting for something to magically happen

~Plan a vacation for my family; don’t let them cancel it

~Go to the pool, even if its by myself

~Eat better and exercise more. Maybe find a dance class

~Search employment options; tutoring, babysitting, pet watching

~Ride bike (random story time: someone stole my bike last year because I left it in my driveway T_T. Now I have to ride my brothers. Sigh.)

~Practice driving

~Become more social, responsible, focused, and outgoing (is that too unrealistic to set as a goal? I’ll try, anyways)

~Do summer homework, don’t wait till last minute. Sigh.

~If I think of anything, I’ll add it here

(By the way this isn’t in order based on importance, because honestly blogging wouldn’t be that high up if it was ^_^; no offense!)

Okay, bye guys! Hopefully; no, definitely, I’ll see more of you each week. I will stop myself from procrastinating or not doing something because at this point, I should be sick and tired of watching my life pass me by. I can become a better person, and this summer is the opportunity I’m going to take to become one!

Wow, I sound like a motivational speaker. Really, I’m just gonna do my best to have fun; isn’t that what it’s all about?

**By the way, because of summer my facebook has been bombarded with everyone feeling the need to say it’s summer. You know no idea how close I was to typing “Really? It’s summer? I didn’t know, thank you everyone for making your statuses all say the same thing.”

I HATE The Word Diet

31 Mar

What is happening to people now a days? Why is everyone so obsessed with being skinny, or thin, or beautiful? There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look better and improve your self confidence, but it has gone too far.

All over the world, there are crazy diets cropping up. Eat this, drink only grapefruit juice, eat tons of celery. How about the crazy “Eat a tapeworm egg”?! And not to mention all the plastic surgery going around, especially ones involving weight. If someone doesn’t even work to lose weight, how do they expect to stay skinny after all the dangerous and risky surgeries?

The word diet means you want to lose weight. And you probably want to lose weight to look better, feel better, and be happier. But just being slim doesn’t give you everything. People have lost sight of the main purpose. Instead of wanting to be stick thin, we should focus on being healthy. Don’t eat 2 carrots a day, eat however much food you want, so long as it’s good for you!

It seems that in this world, people are willing to do everything to lose weight EXCEPT exercise.

Isn’t that funny? Exercise has numerous benefits for you, and living a healthy lifestyle increases lifespan. A person doesn’t have to be thin to be healthy, and being thin doesn’t mean you’re healthy either. That includes me; I’m slim but I’m definitely not healthy. And if I were fat (I don’t know why I’m not) I wouldn’t try some crazy scheme to get thin fast. I would recognize that there was a problem and work to help my body.

That being said, I definitely don’t exercise or eat right. Which makes me a hypocrite. I acknowledge that I need to make my body better by treating it right, and I hope I will achieve that goal soon. I just hope that everyone understands that in today’s society, body image is placed before personal health and wellbeing, and that needs to change.
