To all my faithful followers - I love you guys so much! Yeah it's been a while since i've posted but I finally found my blogging camera and that means I can start posting more haha. Okay so..let's talk about beauty. No, not the Disney Princess - despite the fact that I used her picture for this post - I want to talk about the actual quality. What is beauty? If you asked someone else, what would they say beauty is? There are two types of ways to see it - inner or outer beauty. Let's start with outer beauty.
Sometimes it's really hard to be motivated when going to the gym. We all get that. We find ourselves bored of doing workouts every day on a daily basis. Cardio becomes difficult and boring. Don't let yourself become that person. In order to help you with that, we decided to whip up a new workout playlist that is sure to pump you up for that dreadful gym session..
Hey guys! I finally found time to blog about something haha. I took time from studying for exams and stuff to address an important issue that was brought up this week. Bullying. So everyone knows what bullying is. Everyone also believes that it doesn't exist just because people aren't stealing your lunch money or hurting you in a physical way. The most common form of bullying we see now is done verbally. Cyber bullying exists too.. and it's a bit worse. Imagine seeing a post about someone calling you "Weird" or "ugly". Seeing them in writing causes a lot of damage to people. Nowadays people believe that they could go and say whatever they want about someone. They will try to defend themselves and say that the person is too sensitive or immature. In reality, that is a bunch of crap. Maybe it's nothing if someone says something ugly to you once but if they keep doing it everyday for years, there's a problem. Why do people do it? Because they have nothing better to do. These people have no respect for anyone and become snobbish. They believe that if you're not like that, you're weird or awkward. These people are afraid of others who are different from them. If you don't stoop down to their level of immaturity, you're considered an outsider immediately. Sometimes these people are also jealous of your own success. They see how intelligent and great you are at something and still try an degrade you. They try and make you feel weak and depressed to feel better about themselves. If you let these things get to you then you're looking at it wrong. It does hurt a lot and as a human being you are obliged to feel threatened and hurt. But the second that you let others see that is the second that you have lost your battle. It's better that you ignore them or stand up for yourself. I'm not saying you should fight someone but speak up and defend yourself. Take control and shut those people up. You'll realize how scared of YOU they really are. That is when they will feel more victimized then you did. If it doesn't escalate to that then just ignore those people. As a matter of fact, take their insults and stupidity as a compliment. They're giving you a lot of attention. Be strong and never forget who you really are. Remember that most of the bullies don't end up being successful in life. In the future, you won't even be around these people anymore. You'll be living your life and be doing what you want. You'll be looking back one day at these times and say " I made the right choice. I'm happy I didn't let these people affect me. I stopped paying attention to them and started focusing on being happy." So yeah, stay strong guys and live life to the fullest. We're all beautiful in our own way and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. - Sin
Okay so I failed to go through with my plan of posting frequently. I apologize to all my readers and now that I have a lot of things to share with you guys, I WILL be posting more frequently. Now, let me bring your attention to something serious. Let's talk about animal testing. It's a cruel thing to do on poor innocent animals. I personally have 3 rabbits. I wouldn't want to see them mutated and hurt. People test chemicals on dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, monkeys, etc. I'm sure that if you're a pet owner, you would not like the idea of seeing your pet go through agonizing pain.
Hey guys! It's been a long time since I've posted, i know. I've been so busy lately but i never stopped thinking about you guys :). What did I do on Valentines Day? Nothing haha. I just stayed home and ate all the chocolate I received the day before. I celebrated Valentines Day on the 13th, since that's when I have to give my friends their gifts since I don't see them until a week after.
Hey guys! No, I did not forget about posting! Today I decided to post about fitness. I have heard many people complain about doing cardio. All I constantly hear are complaints about having to run. Most believe that running is one of the only ways to burn calories, including the elliptical, stair master and the bicycle. Truth is you don't have to go on a machine to get some cardio in! Here i'll suggest some alternatives to help burn calories without using a machine!
Happy Wednesday! Today was truly a great day. Why? Well, our High School Mock Trial Team won against Comsewogue! Today we took our yearbook picture (We look so professional, I know).You might be asking yourself, what is a Mock Trial? Well, it's just an imitation trial. We take a case and act it out for a season. We compete against other teams as either the defense or the plaintiff side of the case. Points are rewarded mostly on performance. Yes, winning or losing the case is a big factor but not as much as the performance itself. It is a bit like putting on a play. The lawyers and witnesses have to put on a show for the judge, but in a cordial manner. One must have respect for everyone in the court, including the judge. It might sound boring but in reality, it's really interesting and fun. We have the best lawyers and witnesses, including our very own Katelyn Vasquez (Top right at the end) and Jennifer Galdames (Bottom middle). I'm 3rd to the right by the way. Since I have a defense witness role, I had to go up today and boy... It was amazing! I was a little nervous, like everyone else, but in the end we still came through and did what we had to do. Katelyn was directing me and she dominated the podium haha. From the opening to the closing statements, the trial was impressive.We learned a lot from the other team's witnesses also! Both teams were great today.Our Captain is Nelson Montoya (2nd top right) and the Co-Captain is Angelica Roman (Top Left). We're all exhausted from this meet. Next week our meet is home... It will be something interesting to watch (;. - Sin
Many of you may have heard about the blizzard that went by the Northeastern part of the United States. New York was hit hard, but i'll be honest... I saw pictures of Boston right now and well... I'm praying for them. Since this snow has many people locked in, why not enjoy a cup of hot chocolate?
