Junior Year

erik1

For me, Junior year was a year full of unexpected changes. It most certainly did not meet all my expectations. Before this year, my three best friends and I would hang out every single day. As of today, one of them got mixed up in the wrong crowd, one of them had to move to Louisiana, and there is only the last friend that I still hang out with.  Read More

Family

In life, it is inevitable that you will face many hardships. Friends will come and go, and your life will go through a series of stages. The one thing that will be with you forever is your family. A good relationship with your family is something everyone should have, because once everyone else in your life moves on to live their lives, the very few people that will be there for you are your brothers, sisters, and parents. I know this, because I have experienced it. Strengthen your bond with you family, because family is something that is irreplaceable. Read More

Spring Break

Every school year I look towards four things the whole year. These three things are Thanksgiving break, winter break, spring break, and last but not least, summer. I have just recently had spring break, and it was absolutely amazing. The feeling of waking up early on a Monday to realize you do not have school is honestly the best feeling ever. I really appreciate spring break, because it is a time where I do not have to worry about anything school related. To be honest, all the stress in my life right now is coming from school. All the homework, all the quizzes and tests, and all the projects can really tire you out mentally and in some occasions physically  Read More

Friends

Friends are important because they serve as our biggest supporters in our lives. They are there to offer us an escape from reality, give us advice when we need it, or to offer us a shoulder to cry on when we need it. I admit I would be a completely different person if it were not for my friends. I love my friends, and I would not trade any of them for new ones. Read More

Childhood Taste Buds Part 1

m

Your mouth is a very adventurous place, especially when you are a kid that is first discovering the tasteful wonders of the world. When I was a little kid, I lived in a mobile home which is located literally across the street from my neighborhood/ house now. There was my mom, my dad, and my two older brothers. My older brother would always bring me around with him to hang out with him and his friends. Usually, I would always get hungry at the most random times, because of course, I was a little kid, and a little kid needs his food.  My older brother fed me the most delicious food I have ever had in my life AT the time.

First there was the bag of Mama noodles. This was literally heaven in a bag. To be honest though, it is very unhealthy, but I recommend that you try it at least once in your life if you have not already. The crunchiness of the dry noodles, and the unique salty flavor from the packet of seasoning makes your taste buds explode. I loved to eat this as a kid.

Second there was of course, Chin Chin’s grass jelly drink. I still drink this drink today. It is absolutely amazing, especially the banana or lychee flavored ones. The soft and sweet grass jelly accompanied with the sweetness of the drink itself is to die for. The drink was at like sweetness equilibrium, where it was sweet, but not too sweet if you know what I am trying to get at. It was just perfect.

These early taste bud experiments had set the foundation to my love for food. Food is my absolute favorite thing in the world. Whenever the world is doing you wrong, food will forever be at your side. Unless you do not have food.

The Power of Words

cac (1)

Words are a double-edged sword. The power of words can do good in life or it can do bad. Words can build relationships, but they can also destroy them. Words can inspire people, and they can do the complete opposite. Words are capable of starting a war, and they can also end up being the only solution to end a war. Throughout the history of the world and personal experiences, there are many examples of this power being used for justice and for corruption. Read More
