It's up to us to make the most out of what we have. Being able to see the jaw-dropping views, vibrant cultures, and all kinds of wildlife is just breathtaking. To smelling the earth after raining, to smelling the good food on a good day. Down to touching the earth, the textiles, the trees and the hearts of others. To tasting the famous dishes around the world, the flavors, the local delicacies and dessert. To hearing the roar of a lion, the distant rumble of thunder, the wind flowing through your ears, the waves crashing, and the different languages that are out there. Lastly, the sense of humor because travel should be enjoyed and cherished. It should make us smile, laugh uncontrollably, and it should remind us to never take ourselves too seriously and to have fun and explore.

Color Your World (8) What color am I? I consider myself to be a mix of blue, black, red, and white. The color blue represents my sadness.

I chose black because sometimes it's good to be alone, and being alone represents black perfectly. It helps me realize so much more in life. It gives me time to breathe, to think, and helps reassure me that everything will be okay. The red represents my anger, stress, and frustration. When I'm frustrated, I get angry.

Well you see Mrs. Griffin, I have an excuse to why I was late today. You see I was finishing up my work that is due today at home. I forgot I left the door to my room open so my dog ran inside and took my papers and started running around the house. So while I was trying to catch it, my mom knew something really bad was happening so she came inside the house and right when she opened the door the dog ran outside. So I had to chase it. This dog never took breaks, by this time I was barely hanging in there. After 30 minutes of chasing it my dog just sat down with the homework in its mouth looking straight at me. So I caught him and got the work but as I was walking back to my house super tired it started to rain, so there goes that.

Flashback (23) Wednesday, May 16, 2018 12:55 PM

If I could relive one day again I think I'd go back to September 2, 2016. Don't really like talking about it, but it's about my first girl. We never got a chance to start dating, but a lot of memories were shared together. Her name is Samyra. I will always keep a place for her because there were a lot of firsts with her. She made me happy, but at the end of it all it is what it is. September 2, it was a school day. Earlier that day we actually hung

out in school and she introduced me to her coach and her coach means a lot to her so I thought that it was a good sign. Later that night I was with her and we decided to go to Paseo. It was late at night and we just sat by the rocks listening to the waves crashing. We just sat there and talked all night and even if it's just the little things, it still means a lot. This whole day I was happy and that's why I will remember this day.

I will miss being you because as a day goes by you're not getting younger. And as I'm getting older I notice all the changes and I don't want it to end, but that's just how life is. I enjoy everday that I live no matter if it's a good or a bad day, I'm just thankful for another day.
