When I get into the gym to shower I get a text on my phone saying they cut off the water supply because a bunch of construction workers broke the pipe line while trying to pave the road. Instead of showering my mom came with my new set of uniform and I ended up going home to shower. After I thought everything was over, I see a car accident right in front of my eyes on my way to school from home. The traffic was so bad that I had to get out the car and run to school.

Prompt #16 personal symbol

My personal symbol isn't really an object. Surprisingly it's a logo from a brand I love wearing. The brand which is my personal symbol is the nike logo. I choose this as my personal symbol because it's something so simple. The slogan of nike is "just do it". My personality is ill do what ever and I'm down for whatever. I choose the nike logo as my personal symbol because the slogan is "just do it". I'm the type of person who will just do it! I also choose the nike logo because there is a lot of things from nike that describe me but I hard time choosing so I decided to go with the nike logo itself. The logo is simple. It looks like a check mark and nike is known to be a company that develops simple products but had a lot of tech and meaning behind it. Which is how I am as a person. I'm a simple person with a lot of tech in my personality and meaning behind certain things I do. Nike is my favorite brand and I don't know how to describe it with my personality since there isn't much to talk about a simple logo so I'll just pick some products that sorta describe me. The first thing product I picked is the nike Stefan Janoski signature shoe. I have a pair and the shoe is a simple shoe with the nike air zoom technology in it. The zoom is what absorbs the impact you take to heel and I feel as if there are certain parts in my life that impact me .I can't do anything but just take the impact and carry on with life. Another product from nike that describes me is the nike free runs. The free runs where designed for a bare foot kinda run. I love running and these are the pair of shoes I love using when I got on long runs or when I sprint. The free runs describe my personality as a free person living without worries. The shoes are soft to and yes I do have a sort of soft side in me. Another product that describes me is the nike roshe runs. The nike roshe runs aren't really a running shoe but a relaxing casual shoe. I have a pair of these and they are super comfy. I wear these shoes with socks and sometimes without socks. The shoes where inspired by zen and they just wanted a shoe that is something comfy to relax in. This describes me because I'm a chill person who really doesn't stress out much. One product that also describes me is the nike tiempo soccer cleats. I'm not really a soccer person but I use these cleats for rugby. These cleats are super tuff. They are made from leather and I'm surprised they have last through out the whole season of rugby. They have been through a lot of mud and rain and a lot of dirt. These cleats describe the one side that people think I don't have which is a tough side. This concludes my submission on a personal symbol. I had a sort of a hard time doing this because I didn't know what to do. So instead I decided to wing it. Overall it was fun writing this!

Prompt 18 "A mysterious place" This place i would describe an area where everything is free. The people are chill and everything is free.

Everybody is happy and living life the way it should be. Everything is possible and you can achieve anything just by believing and having a great imagination.

Prompt 19 "Synetics" 1. Which is wiser? a pen or a pencil - I say the pen because life is like writing with pen. once you write with a pen on paper you cant erase your mistake. all you can do is cover it up with white out and when you make a mistake in life you gotta find a way to cover it up. 2.Which is easier to forgive? a street or sidewalk? - the sidewalk cause in the streets it just happens out there. in the sidewalk if something happens it doesnt matter. 3.Which is more difficult? A nightmare or a dream? -the dream because some people are scared to dream and go for them. The reason why is say that its because there are people who dont believe in making a dream into reality. 4.Which has less charm? A signature or an autograpgh -I say none because an autograpgh to me is just a signature from someone famous. Doesnt really make a difference. 5.Which is easier to close? A road or a map? - The road because when you close a road you can fix the "potholes" and re open the road. 6.Which is braver? An hour or a year? - I would say a year because people nowadays are impatient and can only survive an our. when the brave can survive a year or 2. 7.Which is more useful? A Friend or an enemy? -I would say none. Because your friend can know so much about you and become an enemy. When he/she becomes an enemy what ever they know about you, they can use against you. 8.Which is more trustworthy? History or Literature? -History. Because history came from a primary source and then turned into a secondary source. As in literature i think it isnt trustworthy because literature talks about fiction at times. 9.Which is happier? Music or Art. -I would say Art because people have different opinions about art and art is more about freedom of expressions and people tend to paint more things that are happy. When you think of music people think of sadness cause people talk about there sad feelings through song. 10. Which cost more? A house or a home?


- I would say a home because when you buy a house there is nothing in it but a building sturcture. Plus A home is something you can evolve over time with different kinds of furniture and add new things to when you feel like it.

Prompt 27 cheer yourself up

When I'm deep down in the dirty I got a lot of things that can cheer me up because life is to short to be sad. One the things I love doing is listening to tracks on my iphone. I like listening to tracks because you never know what song will pop up when you're listening to tracks on your iphone when it's on shuffle. Another thing I love doing is playing rugby. Rugby is one of my favorite sports one of the things I like doing is hitting bags or tackling someone. Hitting bags/tackling helps me the most because it's fun plus I feel like I'm hitting the sadness out my body. I also like running the ball. When I get hit I feel like all the sadness is beaten out of me and it gives me space to replace sadness with a little bit of happiness. I also love doing jiu jitsu when I'm sad. Jiu jitsu is like a relaxing sport. It's a really gentle sport also. When I "roll", I feel more concentrated on my partner than on my sadness. When sensai makes us work out hardcore I feel like being tired has replaced the emotion of being sad. Jiu jitsu is one of those sports where you gotta be emotion less because it's all about concentrating on your opponent cause you don't know there next move or if there gonna sweep you or submit you. It's strange but eating cheers me up also. Eating is one of my favorite things to do. Food makes me happy. When I eat I don't care what it is just as long as it smells good.

I say this because I'm so excited to get home and I have a habit of doing without thinking. I also don't want to slam the door because I don't want people to think I'm mad and that I had a bad day. Another thing I don't wanna do is rush out the door because I know I might end up running into someone and colliding heads with someone in the hallway.

Prompt 27 cheer yourself up

When I'm deep down in the dirty I got a lot of things that can cheer me up because life is to short to be sad. One the things I love doing is listening to tracks on my iphone. I like listening to tracks because you never know what song will pop up when you're listening to tracks on your iphone when it's on shuffle. Another thing I love doing is playing rugby. Rugby is one of my favorite sports one of the things I like doing is hitting bags or tackling someone. Hitting bags/tackling helps me the most because it's fun plus I feel like I'm hitting the sadness out my body. I also like running the ball. When I get hit I feel like all the sadness is beaten out of me and it gives me space to replace sadness with a little bit of happiness. I also love doing jiu jitsu when I'm sad. Jiu jitsu is like a relaxing sport. It's a really gentle sport also. When I "roll", I feel more concentrated on my partner than on my sadness. When sensai makes us work out hardcore I feel like being tired has replaced the emotion of being sad. Jiu jitsu is one of those sports where you gotta be emotion less because it's all about concentrating on your opponent cause you don't know there next move or if there gonna sweep you or submit you. It's strange but eating cheers me up also. Eating is one of my favorite things to do. Food makes me happy. When I eat I don't care what it is just as long as it smells good. One of the foods that make me happy is bubble gum ice cream or mixed ice cream from cold stone. Cotton candy also! Like the colors of food also cheer me up. A good example is bubble gum ice cream. The colors aren't like depressing it's like a happy color of blue and pink. Sleeping also helps cheer me up. When I sleep I always feel refreshed and new. My dreams and the comfort of my bed is what makes me happy. It's like when I lay down on my bed everything is peaceful and all the negativity in the world is all gone so is my sadness. People think sleeping makes them more sad but I think sleeping helps make you happy because you wake up refreshed and new.
