7 things that make me happy.

Hey guys!

So I’m back today with another blog post because I have time. Which sounds a bit weird but I’ve finally found time to sit down and write more blog posts. These pasts couple of weeks, school combined with extracurriculars has kept me from writing more blog posts. Finally I’m allowed a bit of a break…..

No, it’s not spring break yet for me.

“Silently cries in corner counting down the days till spring break”

The real reason for me having time is a little ironic actually. So a couple of days ago, in my last blog post, I talked about how I thought this week was going to be the best week ever. I was somewhat wrong. The next day I went to sleep not feeling very well, and when I woke up the next morning I was physically drained. I woke up with a sore throat, a massive headache, and felt completely nacious. Needless to say, I stayed home and was put on bed rest. All very horrible things but the good thing to come out of it was time. Time to sit back and think of new blog posts.

That was a pretty long intro… very sorry but to continue with the blog post, today I want  to talk about 7 things that make me happy. You see, sitting around sick and not being able to do much, got me thinking of the things that could possibly cheer me up. Whether it’s a small or big gesture, all theses things make me infinitely happy.

7 Things That Make Me Happy

  1. Food

What a very broad topic indeed. Dinner specifically, but I’d go for any type of food, anytime of the day. If I could, I would spend my days traveling the world trying all different types of food.

     2. Friends & Family

I’ve tried many times to venture through this world without friends to lend me a hand. And let me tell you, it’s completely impossible. For me, at least it is. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have my friends and family there, ready to support me, or just carry me up when I’m feeling down. A day spent with them is 10 times better than a day spent alone.

    3. Reading a book

I’m the type of person to always have a book with me. Wherever, whenever I will probably be reading a book. Books are filled with this amazing ability to take you into this other universe and let you escape life.  Every single time I walk out of the bookstore, it’s like someone has just handed me the key to heaven.

    4. Dogs

I mean, come on. How can dogs not make anyone happy? When I come home everyday, my dog is always there to cheer me up and cuddle. Once you show me a picture of a dog, I’m a goner. My day has magically become a lot better.

    5. The Future

Of course I’m nervous for the future, but at the same time I get so excited just thinking about what’s to come. Honestly I cannot wait to graduate high school and experience college.

    6. Laughing

Not really sure how to categorize this one, but anything thats makes me laugh until my stomach hurts is awesome. I’m definitely a sucker for puns, any type of puns make me so happy.

     7. Blogging

And last but certainly not least is blogging. I never in a million years thought about starting a blog. But I am so glad that I did. It’s given me this platform to express my thoughts and feelings into a community filled with amazing people.


Choosing to be happy is a choice you get to make. Darkness has no power over you unless you let it have it. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and always remember that even the smallest things in life have the ability to make you happy.

See you guys soon,

Help!

I need somebody. Not just anybody. You know I need someone.

Why have I just stated the intro to The Beatles classic?

Honestly, I haven’t got a clue.

Hello wonderful people of the interwebs! I’m back today with one of those random posts that don’t really have a category or a specific meaning to them. Sometimes I feel like I need every one of my blog posts to be utter perfection and impactful to the people who read them. But I need to stop doing this, because although I have readers to satisfy, I also want to be 100% me. Even if that means writing about the randomest and weirdest thoughts that come into me head.

So, an update on my life….. It’s gone to absolute disaster. My grades aren’t exactly horrible, but they are definitely not up to the standards I want them to be.

Starts to sing “When you try your best, but you don’t succeed…”

These past few weeks have been quite an emotional roller coaster for me. A lot of the times you think you have life under control, and then it hits you with a bang. Last week I was the metaphorical gong they use in yoga class. You know the one the yoga instructor hits during class? Yes, that was me, and life was the yoga instructor.

School. Oh, what a dreadful thought. Okay, okay so it isn’t that bad, but I think its just some specific subjects that make my stomach churn. I am in no way interested in science at all, and for that reason alone I believe that science classes should not be mandatory. Chemistry has become a place full of sorrow, misery, and endless nights of stress. Me and chemistry just don’t click. Please believe me when I say that I’ve tried tremendously to understand chemistry. Whatever I do, nothing seems to add up.

Now I don’t want to speak for all teachers, but some teachers need to get with the program, and I say this in the nicest way possible. A few of my teachers wait until the very last minute to put my grades into the grade book and this stresses me out so much. For example, my math teacher still hasn’t put in the grade for a test we took over a month ago! Please to all the teachers out there, I understand you have many responsibilities but don’t forget to put the in grades.

Anyways, aside from my obvious problems at school, mentally I think I’m doing okay. I’ve been trying to surround myself with people who are positive and make me laugh all the time. I’m also trying out this new thing called “going out” (please note my sarcasm) and no not with boys, but with my friends. This weekend actually I went to go see Beauty and the Beast and it was AMAZING! From the actors, to the music, everything about it was spectacular.

“Currently in the process of trying to convince my mom to let me go see Beauty and the Beast again”

It’s only the start of the week, but I can already feel that this week is going to be a whole lot better than last week.

I hope you guys enjoyed this little update,

Breakups Suck.

Hey guys! Long time no see….

I’m so sorry that it’s been a week since my last blog post, but as any teenager could tell you school basically takes over your life.

So, as you can tell from the title, today I wanted to talk about breakups. Which is kind of ironic seeing as I’ve never been in a relationship. But I’d like to think that after watching so many romantic comedies and seeing people close to me go through breakups, I have some bit of knowledge.

Okay to start off I just want to say that every relationship is different. Not everything is always going to be black and white. This is what I have gathered from my sisters relationship with her now ex-boyfriend. As I’m writing this, my sisters broken heart has yet to be healed.

Tears stained on pillowcases, Beyonce’s “If I were a boy” blaring throughout the household. That’s pretty much how my sister has chosen to spend her weekend. No matter how much we tell her that she’s worth so much more and the whole world has yet to be discovered, she refuses to listen to us. Hopefully she’ll be able to understand one day that love always comes with a price.

Breakups are somewhat of a right of passage. Most people will go through it. Learning how to get through a breakup is important. Unfortunately your handed the job of trying to stitch your heart back to the way it used to be. After that, the cycle continues and continues until it doesn’t anymore. You just need to remember that pain is temporary and you will get through it.

The process is completely different for everyone. In your time of need though, I recommend that you have someone who is willing to help you get through it. Any words of encouragement can make a huge difference.

There is only one way to go now.

Forward.

All of the apologies and things left unsaid will try to distract you from the truth. If both of you are meant to be, you’ll eventually find your way back to each other. For now you have to worry about you and how you can fix yourself, before another attempt at a relationship.

“You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.”

  • Bob Marley

I hope you guys enjoyed and never forget that breakups are not the end of the world,

Guys. Gals. People of the world.

I never thought the day would come where my blog would be seen and read by people other than my best friends and my parents. But it happened and I am forever ever grateful for each and everyone of you.

All 102 of you to be exact.

Thank you so much for helping me reach 100 followers! There are people from countries I’ve never been to and places I’ve never even heard of. It’s amazing that people from the other side of the earth are reading this right now. Who would have known that any of this would have ever happened? Definitely not me. The day I started this blog I entered a wonderful community of people who have a passion to share their stories with the world. So again I want to thank all of you and I hope that you can all stay and come along the start of a journey that is nowhere near its end.

Sincerely,

The Rant Girl
