The Last Post

“The last melon”. Only the real ones know. Week 14 and I’m finally done blogging.

Whew, this has been such a whirlwind of emotions, ideas, and dedication. There’s been many ups and downs but all great careers oscillate high low. Audacious and shamelessly persevering, the battle has been won. The battle does not pertain to blogging but also the end of another school year. This past orbit contains some of my more reckless and daring decisions, but also some clarity. #LiveAboveTheClouds.

I think as time goes on, our awareness intensifies but at the price of our innocence. Lately nostalgic memories of my childhood have played through my head. I loved to play “army”, legoes, and other games but I can’t anymore. It’s not that my curiosities slipped but I can’t seem to get the same satisfaction out of legoes when there’s constant destruction, nor war when there’s Dick Cheney. Im pretty pumped for Summer but at the same time Summer can be kinda worrisome. It’s 2-3 months of compulsive eating and unsupervised, irrational decisions.

I think that we should just have a year around school with more, longer breaks. 9 months of school then 3 straight months of break isn’t sustainable. Our little breaks we have throughout the year are kind of like weed and everyone gets happy and has a good time but then all of a sudden we get 3 months of heroine, knowing your gonna have to go back to rehab for 9 more months. It’s too much time on our hands for such a short amount of time. But, Summer can also be really nice. Lights being absorbed at arguably the best angle which has enormous benefit. Everyone is usually in better moods and there’s also less stress depending on how demanding your commitments. I am really excited to go explore nature this Summer and I’m hoping I’ll get to see some plants and animals that I’ve never seen before.

It’s also ok if I see plants and animals I regularly see because I like most of them. One plant I hate is the green weed that has all of those little white needles and you can’t see if they get on your leg but if they do then it fucking sucks. I hope everyone has fun staying safe this summer haha.


Its Almost Summer!

Its almost summer! The whole vibe of Santa Barbara is changing for the better and I just can’t wait for school to be out! The past few weeks I’ve been going to the beach quite a bit and playing all sorts a games.

My most favorite game is a competitive game of spike ball. Usually my partner is Cole but sometimes he’s just “not all there” and I get angry so I try to find a different parterre, but nobody can beat me and Cole if were on top of our game. On Friday I decided to go to the fair but that was a mistake because not only is the fair dirty, loud, and very complicated to maneuver around, it is expensive as hell. Overall the fair was a 2.7/10. I was extremely thirsty and a guy wouldn’t give me a cup of water, instead all he would say is “we have bottled water”. I was so mad that I was gonna kick his ass but he was saved by Caroline Luce who supplied me with a few sips of her water. I swear to god that if I ever see that asshole again, his face will get destroyed. On Saturday I had a volleyball tournament which went from 8 a.m to 5 p.m which is a bit excessive but I had a very solid nap that pushed me through the day. Saturday night I hangout with my friend Cole and all we did was just play in my pool and listen to music.

On Sunday, I went to the beach with Cole, Quinn, and Gavin and that was pretty fun but I had to cut it short cause I had some business to attend to at a friends house. After hanging out there for a bit, I went home and hungout with my mom which was a nice way to end my weekend. She’s a lovely women and her voice is soft and soothing.  also played with my dog which was a blast.

I also finished up some homework because teacher’s don’t respect the limited free time students have at home. If I ever become a teacher then I will never assign homework and this statement is on the inter web so if I need to remind my future self of the promise I made my future students, then I will.
