Honeysuckles?!

3 Nov

Let me tell you two different tales that have nothing to do with one another.

 

As a child, my friend and I would go out in the spring and summer time and find honeysuckles. They would grow along bushes and trees next to our playground. It was so much fun to pick each one individually and see how much honey you could get from each one; as kids, it was very exciting to find a huge blob of honey from time to time. Ever since then I have loved honeysuckles and they are a reminiscent part of my childhood.

Fast forward to my current life; several months ago my mom bought a plant. It was like a mini-tree; it had a huge sturdy stem, large leaves, and not much else. But for a week or so, I’ve been noticing an odd odor through my house; particularly the middle floor. Then one day as I opened the door when my dad came home, it hit me; the plant was flowering! I sniffed and sure enough, that’s where the smell was from! But it wasn’t until just now that I took a closer look at the flowers, which looked vaguely familiar. I looked even closer and got suspicious as an idea began to form in my mind…

Forget eloquence. HOLY AFGJSAHGDH THERE ARE HONEYSUCKLES GROWING ON MY HOUSEPLANT!! You guys have no idea how cool this is; however even I don’t know why I’m getting so excited over it. But you have to realize that every year during the spring, I never stopped being on the look-out for honeysuckles. Whenever I got a whiff of honey, I would literally stop walking home and look near the bushes. One time I tried eating one but the honey blob fell before I could get it 😦

This is like a piece of my childhood coming back. No more looking for honeysuckles, the brief and glorious revisits to those childhood days! I literally have an unlimited supply to them inside my own house! Even as I type this, I realize it’s not that big of a deal…but I got excited so before I could stop myself, this post was born 🙂

 

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed a brief glance into my brain filled with insanity. Please don’t call a therapist.

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.”
