Buddy Holly Makes Me Feel This Way:

23 Feb

Any music from the 20’s- 50’s just makes me feel wonderful. That is a lie actually, a major generalization. BUT, I really don’t care right now because my mind is full of butterflies and other things of rubbish!

Mood Rings, How Do They Work?

23 Jan

Mood Rings are fun, in fact I believe they are from the same realm of fun as checking one’s horoscope. Recently I have donned a mood ring on my index finger that I found when cleaning. Really, It’s nice to glance down at one’s hand and be confirmed that “Hey, I do feel content”. Though when I am indeed confirmed, my curiosity gets the best of me and I wonder, How do they work? Well, my dear friend, upon much research (aka, a quick Google search) this is what I found out:

  • There are two types of mood rings: Either a glass shell filled with thermotropic liquid crystals, or a glass stone on top of liquid crystals
  • The crystals used in the mood rings are rather sensitive to heat, once a change in heat occurs they shift.
  • The shift changes the molecular structure of the crystals and then changes the wavelengths of color absorbed and reflected by the liquid crystals, in other words when the shift in heat occurs the crystals move and thus the color being reflected (if you see green, then green is being reflected) changes.
  • The human body’s surface temperature tends to be 82 degrees, while the regular color of the mood ring is green. So, if you are comfortable and most likely indoors you most likely have a “content” or “regular” mood.
  • When the color changes to a blue, known as passionate, it is most likely that you are warm. You may be outside or perhaps you are indeed feeling passionate and flushed because when you are feeling those emotions capillaries in your body come closer to your skin and then release heat, resulting in your new color on the mood ring.
  • When outside on a winter day you mood ring can change black, or nervous. This can also be a reaction to clammy hands due to being stressed.

To read more about mood rings I suggest these websites that I got my information from:

I’m Not Going To Promise

23 Jan

Hello. Do you know me? Probably not. Most likely you have never even seen this blog ever. Why, well because I’m horrible at keeping things updated, though I always promise to. I lack ambition.

Oh well, I’m coming to terms with it. I rarely if ever keep my promise on here. I suppose it’s because It’s impossible to pink promise via the interwebs!  So, let me just say at this moment. I will probably post more on here, the key work is probably. No promises! (I really don’t mind too much if anyone reads this.)

Looking for Tiffany’s

20 Nov

I’m horrible, aren’t I? The fact that I have not blogged in awhile has been on my mind everyday. I have many excuses, but I don’t believe that anyone reads this so I don’t really need to get too far into that matter. There have been many grand things as well as bothersome things in my life these days. As Holly Golightly said from Breakfast At Tiffany’s, I have a case of the Mean Reds, I’m just looking for my own Tiffany’s.

 

Your ordianry Trials,

10 Oct

Your ordinary Trials,
Last Beat, and Beat my Court-
Silence plagued- numb to Leaded thoughts
Hit my World- My sort

Raising Hell, my heavy arms-
Took malice in your Reason
Slammed, jaded all the Damned
Wrecked your World- your Treason

Oh Dearest Me, What have I done.

17 Sep

Or not done actually.

I haven’t been posting anything. And mostly I’ve been pushing this off because I don’t know where to start with all of this nonsense! Anyway, school is pleseant if you would like to know. Truly lovely, I’ve never been one to want to go to school. Some days I wake up and the thought of rolling out of my warm bed to start the day is still scary. It’s freezing, don’t you know?! Gosh, but I do get out of bed and end up having an extremely pleasant day. You should too. Really, tomorrow we should all get up without that nagging voice in our head yelling “Stay in bed! It’s warm, you feel cuddly now! I know you want to go back to sleep!”. Can you imagine waking up without that? How wonderful!

I’ll tell you how it goes tomorrow. I’M BACK!

Summer, You Did It Again.

7 Sep

I’m not sure how it got passed me, I find myself as a somewhat perceptive human being. Well, I suppose this proves me wrong. Where the hell has summer gone? It truly vanished; yesterday it was in my grasp. Today is another story, I feel it but it’s gone. The blazing sun; gone. The nonexistent responsibilities; gone. Waking up at 1pm; gone.

There’s something sad about losing summer. I almost feel like I failed though I know it’s inevitable. I suppose I lived it fully. No, I will not “suppose”. I am extremely sure that I had a fulfilled summer. How could I not have?

A month in Florida, visiting my lovely Grandparents.
A week in Maine
Ocean visits
Walks with Mom
Talks with Dad
Sublime Concert

Sorry, I had to list that. I just needed to reassure myself that this summer was amazing. I see at as so now.

Inspiration, Inspiration, Inspiration.

2 Sep

Usually inspiration tends to be with me like my right hand. I find it in the oddest of places; I once wrote a poem about the scent of perfume on an old woman. Though recently I have been at an utter loss of words; quite literally. Frustrated, my mother whom has entirely changed her diet and is losing weight left and right dragged me out for a run. By dragged I mean coaxed, she’s not strong enough to drag me out… yet.

Perhaps it was the endorphins or maybe the beautiful run over the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, but I suddenly found my inspiration. With my heart pumping and provocative rap music blasting in my head I couldn’t stop my thoughts. They went at a mile a minute, that’s 7 times as quick as my feet were! I thought of absurd things, stressful things, and lovely things.

One thought that stood out the most was the thought of my mother’s wonderful ambition. As I said in my previous blog, ambition is beautiful. She wanted to lose weight, be the best woman she could be and she’s doing it at rapid speed.

Not only did she inspire my thoughts but she also inspired me to run even more.  I do adore that woman.

Nostalgic At 16?

1 Sep

Are there any childhood show’s that are tasteless to one’s now “mature” mind that you just end up watching even though you were supposed to grow out of them? I’m talking about shows like Pokémon, Angry Beavers, and other child hood favorites that were forced into the minds of children who were born in the 90’s. Yes, I admit. I do still have my impressive collection of Pokémon cards.

Though I’m quite embarrassed of what I watch on a normal basis I know for a fact that I’m not the only one. Netflix just added two seasons of Angry Beavers on its “Ready To Play” list. This must mean I’m not the only one who is completely devoted to the past.

This makes me wonder though; I’m only 16 years old. How can I already be nostalgic?
