Lullabye

Well this seems a bit undermined,

The pieces all seem intertwined.

Just know that this wasn’t meant to happen.

These were not my intentions

 

I still remember the sound of angels

When the door opened for a cradle 

And without giving a second thought 

We flew during those months

 

The smell of freshly cut grass

And the hope that this lasts

The dreams that made it so far

Into the deepest part of our hearts.

 

The touch of the soft willed flowers

That wilted after just a few hours

After this found it’s way

To create the most nostalgic day

 

The taste of the cooking

That was very confusing

I didn’t know what to make of it

Or what to make with it

 

I remember each one of these

They come and go as they please

My emotions seem to be outnumbered

By the memories that slumber

 

If only the past could be rearranged

I don’t ever want to see it changed

I could be in the past right now

And make sure you never go

 

 

You

You walk into the store, hoping to buy some food to sustain yourself on the journey you’ve put yourself into. You find some granola bars and energy drinks. You bring the items to the front counter, where a woman wearing a uniform way too big for her tiny body is reading a magazine. She sits up as you approach and rings you up.

But as she’s doing so, you notice your picture on the wall. You’ve cut and dyed your hair since then, in hopes to change your appearance. You hope she doesn’t recognize you. For if she does, you know you’ll be put through hell because of a misunderstanding.  Luckily she pays no attention and gives you your final bill. You pay and walk out.

Once outside, you search the parking lot for the stolen vehicle you took yesterday. You wonder around until you see it pull up into the parking lot. “I thought I told you to stay here!” you remark.

“Sorry I got so nervous I had to take a drive.” your friend and now partner in crime Ashton replied. When he looks at the angry face you give him, he smiles. “Just get in, Alex.” he pleaded. “I didn’t get caught.”

“Yeah, but we might be followed now.” You reply as you enter the SUV. You know that your friend was reckless, sometimes to the near point of death. That was one of the qualities you liked in him. That he was willing to try anything at least once. You bet he never expected this though.

Ashton drove off, down a long road that leads to the highway. You hope and pray he didn’t screw up and cause you and he to get caught. I am never going to forgive them, you thought. If they can make up a story and make anyone believe it, then I can do things no one sees coming. They ruined my life, and now, they’ll pay for it. 

 

Hour of Code

Last night I got to be involved in one of the best introductory lessons into code. I had the wonderful opportunity to be a moderator and helped others when they had questions. It was so inspiring seeing so many people interested in coding. It really is a second language, and it is so much fun! Getting involved in code means you are getting involved with making apps, web pages, computer programs, and video game designing. But that’s not all. By 2020, there will be a shortage of over 1,000,000 people to fill in technology jobs. Learning code means you can get involved in one of the fastest growing career fields. Sounds awesome, right?

Hour of Code is happening again today at 1 pm. I will be there to help people with any questions. Also, today I will be speaking about the Science/ STEM club, and the many opportunities it offers.

If you are unable to attend Hour of Code, there are many websites that are there to help you learn!

  • Codeacademy.com- this website can help you learn many different types of coding, including HTML, Java, and Ruby. The offer fun interactive lessons that make the information stick in your brain! (This is the website I’m using. I’m learning Ruby.)
  • Khanacademy.org- This website is specific to Java, and is willing to teach you the basics in many fun videos and tutorials. This website also offers a developer, where you can make your own programs using Java.
  • Code.org- This website is the host of Hour of Code and has plenty of tutorials to help you make programs that include familiar movies or games, like Frozen and Star Wars. 

A bit about me

dw

Hello to all those listening:

I feel obligated to tell you about some of the things I enjoy, because why would you follow someone who doesn’t have opinions?  Here’s a few of my favorite things.

My favorite:

T.V. Show- Doctor Who, Supernatural, and anime. (There’s a lot of anime, so I’m not going into specific shows *ahem* SAO)
Hobbies- Playing Guitar (a big one), writing, listening to music, hanging with my family, Netflix
Holiday- contrary to popular belief, I enjoy my birthday more than Christmas. This is most likely because my mother and I share a birthday, and the fact I can honor veterans at the same time.
Number- 11, I find it lucky
Subject in school- Music
Obsessions- Music, bands, etc. 
Bands- 5SOS, P!ATD, SWS, PTV, BVB, FOB, Yellowcard, Green Day, blink-182, etc.
Video Game- Legend of Zelda, most probably

It’s been a while since I’ve told someone about me, so if I’m forgetting something, please ask! Also, I’m open for suggestions on pretty much anything, so feel free to suggest anything.

I can confidently say I’m a nerd!

Happy Holidays!
