I’m feeling very thoughtful and short on words at the moment. A good recipe for blogging as apparently the younger generations don’t like to read, but they do like deep things. Here are some of my thoughts for today.
  • Putting others before yourself is highly rewarding
  • Spending at the very least a short amount of time every day to be alone, unwind, and talk to God in whatever way you do best is crucial to living well, and maintaining a low stress level
  • Laziness leads to frustration and eventually self-contempt
  • Shallow conversations lead to shallow relationships

As I have no more words to say, I leave you with a short message from my dear friend Yoda.

Owl

Hello. Today, I am writing to you about a topic that is very near and dear to my heart. Owls. Owls are nice, owls are neat. You like owls. You wouldn’t believe how many owls there are in the world. Like there are so many owls in the world like you wouldn’t even know. That’s a lot of owls. Owls are big. I once saw an owl that was eating a car. It was bigger than a tree. The car wasn’t bigger than a tree, but the owl was. Lots of owls are that big. But you wouldn’t know that because they’re invisible. That’s why I’m telling you about it. How did I see the owl eating a car? His invisible maker was broken and once he was finished eating I asked him about owls and he told me that there are lots of giant owls. If your car mysteriously disappears it might be because a giant owl ate it. Or maybe someone stole it. If your car mysteriously disappears, you should call the police.

I like owls. I hope you do to. Owls are lots of fun and some of then are really big. That’s why there are lots of owls.

King Arthur: [about the inscription on the rock] What does it say, Brother Maynard? Brother Maynard: It reads, "Here may be found the last words of Joseph of Aramathia. He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the holy grail in the Castle of Aaauuuggghhh... " King Arthur: What? Brother Maynard: "The Castle of Aaaauuuggghhhh" Sir Bedevere: What is that? Brother Maynard: He must have died while carving it. King Arthur: Oh come on! Brother Maynard: Well, that's what it says. King Arthur: Look, if he was dying, he wouldn't have bothered to carve 'Aaaauuuggghhhh'. He'd just say it. Sir Galahad: Maybe he was dictating it. King Arthur: Oh shut up! Sir Robin: Well does it say anything else? Brother Maynard: No, just "Aaaaauuuugggghhh". [knights making groaning sounds] Sir Bedevere: Do you think he could have mean, 'Camaaaauuuuggghhhh'? Sir Galahad: Where's that? Sir Bedevere: France, I think. Sir Lancelot: Isn't there a Saint "Aaaaavvvveeeesss" in Cornwall? King Arthur: No that's Saint "Ives". Sir Lancelot: Oh, yes. "Iiiiiivvvveeessss"! [All knights saying, "Iiiiiivvvveeessss"] Sir Bedevere: Whooooouuuuaaa! Sir Lancelot: No no no, it's "Aaaaauuuugggghhhh" from the back of the throat. Sir Bedevere: No I mean, "Whoooouuuuaaa!" as in surprise and alarm. Sir Lancelot: Oh, you mean like, "AAAHH!" Sir Bedevere: Yes, that's it. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

"Aaaagh!"

I’m not sure I fully realized just how much of a weirdo I was until tonight (Er…. Morning). I was reading Morte Darther (The Death of King Arthur) by Sir Thomas Malory, a 15th century English classic in its original form. Even worse, I was enjoying it.

I think I’m going to be deeply enjoying my English Lit class this semester.

Acne

I decided to read the wikipedia article on acne (did you know it’s actually considered a disease?), but only got a couple paragraphs into it. Blackheads, whiteheads, buttheads, knuckleheads… Whatever. I’m going to go study.

Raptors.

Glowsticks.

What do these two things have in common? Well, they happen to both be on my mind right now.

What else do they have in common? The Awesomeness Factor. I mean think about it… Raptors have scales, and glowsticks glow. How much more awesome can it get?

Now that you’ve considered both of them separately, think about what might happen if you combined them! Glowing raptors! Think about the power… The terrifying and powerful image that these gloptors would have! It’s not just a raptor. It’s an ideal. It conveys so much. “I’m a gloptor! Hear I em! Look at mei! Be much terified!” (have I also mentioned that they have terrible spelling and grammar?)

You’re ridiculous. Raptors? They’re extinct. And combining them with glowsticks? What are you even thinking? Get a grip on reality.

Actually, nevermind… It may be a better idea to get a grip on…

THE GLOPTOR!!!!!

These past few wonderful days have been graced with weather reminiscent of the season we all know and love… Summer! I’m quite excited for this coming summer, as it marks the end of my days as a highschool student, and a transition into a very new stage of my life.

Now a post like this would not be complete without one of my oh-so-famous (not really) survey questions!

Name five of your favoritest things about summer!

Here are mine in no particular order:

  • Driving with all the windows down
  • Sleeping outside in the hammock
  • Shorts
  • Going to the beach
  • The absence of schoolwork
