    Before the Sorting Hat

    Before the Sorting Hat

    Now, growing up I hated reading. It took a lot of effort on my parents side to get me to read anything. My sisters were busy reading all sorts of books from Nancy Drew to Babysitters club. I did not enjoy the same pass time, instead I was busy building houses for my toys and creating stories for myself. It was not long before my sisters had started the Harry Potter phase. I was indifferent to the books. Then, I saw Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone movie and I knew I had to read the books once my oldest sister commented "The book was so much better". I read the Harry Potter book and it changed my life. So, I have decided to write a character analysis on Harry Potter himself.

    A Letter to the Prime Minister

    A Letter to the Prime Minister

    We have evolved as a human race. We were once cavemen and women, we once hunted for food. We have evolved, which leads to an unfortunate circumstance to our planet. We understand what we are doing to it, we understand that we are slowing killing our planet, yet we continue to do these things that pollute our oceans. Our oceans are dying so, a letter I will write to express the maddening concern for our planet.

    Ovarian Cysts

    Ovarian Cysts

    All women go through the same phase of the period. Some women have seven days of bleeding, others have only five. Every woman is different and we all know that. There are woman who don't bleed for months at a time and then have a ten day streak of heavy bleeding. This my be uncomfortable for you to read, but some women have hard menstrual cramps and others barely feel a difference. This article will get personal and a little bit awkward. When I first got my period it was normal I was one of the lucky ones, I did not feel any different, there was no pain or cramping and quite frankly it sneaked up on me. I have lived very happy with my period up until I started university. The first time I experienced the pain was thanksgiving. I was eating dinner and over eating and I was happy and laughing with my family, until I suddenly felt like someone had stabbed me in the lower intestine. I thought it was only indigestion, but then the pain was moving towards my left side. I got up from the table and fell to the ground, it hurt too much to stand. My mom found a pillow to put under my head and my oldest sister stood there accusing me of being weak, saying hurtful things like "she's just being dramatic". No, sister. No, she is not "being just dramatic". It felt like someone had stabbed me with a knife in the lower left quadrant of my stomach. My parents helped me up and put me in their bed (because it is the closest from the kitchen). I remember crying lots and howling from the pain as the rest of my family had no idea what to do. I remembered that I had some left over naproxen from my shoulder injury. I directed my dad to go find it and he did. I took one immediately and I prayed that the pain would be going away soon. I was crying badly because the pain was not going away and I was in a fetal crouching position screaming "make it go away" at the top of my lungs but it came out all weird because it was through my tears. Then my other sister brought me a hot water bottle and I put it on my stomach, which helped a lot but I was still crying and my head started to hurt from lack of oxygen. I decided to convince my body to shut down. I took in a deep breath and pretended to go to sleep, i closed my eyes and still nothing. luckily we had melatonin in the house so I took it quickly and within minutes I started to feel all the medications starting to work. As the months wore on I started to learn the signs that the pain was coming, first step was my legs being in unbelievable pain, like growing pains, but a little more intense because no position is comfortable for you to lay in. My doctor had given me a stronger dose of naproxen. I would take it before my period would come, so I would be well prepared. One time we went to the movie theater to see Moana and I felt a little weird so I went to the bathroom and even though I had taken naproxen the pain came to me anyway. I went back to the theater grabbed my coat told my sisters "it's happening, I am calling dad" and I sneaked out of the theater and I collapsed beside the door of the theater. I lay there for thirty minutes and no one, not even a staff member came to help me. When I woke up I managed to call my dad, but he said he could not understand me my words were slurred, but I finally told him where I was and he was on his way. Ten minutes went by when finally one staff member came to see if I was okay and needed water. I probably sounded drunk to her, but I should have called an ambulance then. My dad came fifteen minutes later, he helped me to the car and took me home. I went into bed and passed out. My body took the flight response as opposed to fight. This was not a normal thing happening. I made an appointment with my doctor and she said I might have endometriosis and it could reduce my chances of having children. All I ever wanted were children. After doing an ultrasound for my pelvis. I was relieved to hear it was not endometriosis. Instead I had cysts on both my ovaries, which explains the painful periods I have been experiencing. On the left side I had a cyst that was four inches all around and on my right it was two and a half inches. It was usually my left side that hurt, so I was shocked to hear that they were on both sides of me. I was booked to get surgery on them because of the size. My doctor prescribed other medication for me, which I could tell it helped. Now, the pain was came for five minutes and then I was fully functional. Then, I had my last ultrasound to see if any changes had happened and during my English class I got a phone call from the Gynecologist's office. I ignored it because I was in class and I called them back five minutes later.

    Sucker for Jonas Brothers

    Sucker for Jonas Brothers

    I was in junior high school when everyone was obsessed with the Jonas brothers. All the girls had some sort of crush on each of the Jonas brothers, fights in the halls would break out because another girl claimed she had kissed one of them, but let's face it we are all liars when it comes to that. I never had a crush on any of them, their hair cuts were weird or too curly. I did like their music and their funny music videos I was a different type of fan girl. I was busy memorizing their songs and picturing me singing them during a talent show all by myself. I knew "SOS", "four minutes" and of course the "year 3000" my sisters and me would practice singing the songs because they were upbeat and fun. I remember we would use the spatula and other kitchen utensils to sing the Jonas brothers. The first song I discovered was from a disney album when they sang a rock and roll version of "poor unfortunate souls" I just thought this is cool there are three brothers and they are in a band, me and my sisters could do that if we were talented. Before I knew it they were starting to be on every cover of teen magazines and there were quizzes to tell you which Jonas brother you should date or which one are you? I hated these quizzes because they were inaccurate and weird. My and friends and I did the which Jonas brother are you supposed to be with, one of my closest friends had a huge crush on Nick Jonas and on the quiz I came to be a "flirt" with Nick Jonas. She just glared at me as I said we are getting married, but I did not find any of them attractive, my friend knew that yet for a week she was upset with me. I was all about Josh Hutcherson, so I could have cared less. Anyways, then high school came around and the Jonas brothers had faded no one had pictures of them in their lockers anymore, it moved on to the leader singer of Maroon 5, but I was still crushing on Josh Hutcherson. High school passed and everyone seemed to forget about the Jonas brothers when I searched them up one day to see where they were I found out Kevin Jonas got married so the group broke up and then Joe Jonas was sadly attempting a solo CD, which was awful and weird. Nick had somehow fallen off the face of the earth. Years later, I discovered a song called "Cake by the Ocean" and the leader singer was no one other than Joe Jonas and he was much more attractive now. When I was listening to the song first I recognized that voice with the slightly higher pitch, the heard breaths of him getting air into his lungs. It had to be Joe Jonas and I looked it up and certainly there he was throwing cake at a beach. Then, the song "Toothbrush" came out and it was just as fun I was hoping for more songs that would get me happy, but then it was announced that the Jonas brothers were getting back together and that's when "Pom, Poms" came out and that was six years ago now. Finally, the song that I had been waiting for came. The song titled as "Sucker" I watched the video over and over again I could not believe my ears. Unmistakably was Nick Jonas voice, then Joe joins in almost like the good old Jonas brothers days. With Kevin's support vocals were there too and the fun clapping part of the song and the easy sing-along lyrics the funky tune in the background brought the music back to life, now where does this song change my life? well, you see there are so many artists that have come and gone. I used to listen to Jesse McCartney, but then with the Jonas brothers his music faded and he has tried to make a come back but it was not very successful. Justin Timberlake was stepping away from the stage and made an amazing comeback just as the Jonas brothers did. It changed my life because it proved that after years of being broken up, they managed to pull back together and still make pretty good music. Instead of recording a failing album they managed to come back strong. It reminded me that life can be hard, sometimes we fade, but then there will always be a big boom to bring you back from it. No matter what it is that you stop, you will eventually go back to it. For example, if you used to play piano a lot as a child and then you stopped because it was not fun and then you get back to it and you found that love again from when you first touched the keys. We can always go back to our passion no matter how long it has been, even if we forgot how to love our passion, we can always come back to it.

    Sushi

    Sushi

    I wanted to share a special photo with all my readers, it is sushi. Looking at the photo you would think not too much of it other than the fact that it is sushi. But, let me tell you the story behind this picture of sushi. I do not like seafood. As a matter of fact lobsters and crabs scare me, it started from the day my dad would leave me alone in the shopping cart at Superstore staring at the creepy crawlers and to this day just the thought of a lobster gets me squirming in my seat. I never tried sushi before, when my sister convinced me to go with her to celebrate the end of school and the fact that neither of us had stable jobs. She took me to Kinjo and we sat down and I said to her straight "Look, I am not going to try anything weird" I told her. Reluctantly she agreed, but she ordered one of those party platters with different types of sushi from squid to eel to raw smoked salmon. I had no idea what was in each roll until we got 3/4 done and she turned to me and said. "You just ate octopus, squid, eel, fish, tuna, crab, and shrimp" my face just about went white. How could that be possible? I hate seafood and I knew that, but yet. I was liking all of that in a sushi roll? It changed my life forever. Later, that month my fiance (at the time boyfriend) and me went together for a date. I told him, "do not do what my sister did to me by not telling me what we are getting". I like to know what I am eating as I am sure a lot of people do. He looked across the table to meet my eyes and winked. "Don't worry you can trust me," he told me and he judged the expression on my face "Have I ever given you anything icky to eat?" he asked me and I shook my head no. "Exactly." Then he ordered this magical thing called "The dynamite roll" it sounded weird, but I agreed and I tried it and since then, we order it every time we go out for sushi. It started a love for me, which I still like eating and have not been sick from it. Now, the picture above is from neither of those experiences. You see my other sister and her husband hold these fun parties once in a while, where we get to pig out and chat with people that I do not see very often and there is usually some fun activity involved at these parties. This time she was hosting a make your own sushi party and I was nervous about going, but they reassured me the food was bought fresh, so no food poisoning would be happening. They bought imitation crab, carrots, cucumber, smoked tuna, salmon and a lot of other ingredients that I have forgotten, but there was a choice for everyone even for the people who do not like fish. I do not remember where in my sushi timeline this event occurred, but I am 84.5% sure that it happened before me liking sushi. Anyways, we got to make our own sushi. I chose good ingredients my first one was carrot, cucumber and avocado and that was it and it was surprisingly tasty. The next one I made had imitation crab mix and avocado, and cucumber. Which I am 95% sure it is the one in the above picture. Getting the hang of the rolling took me some time to understand how it works, when it comes to learning hands-on stuff it takes me a while, but I become a pro after I get the hang of it. I had to unroll it and look at everyone else's rolling skills and then try it again and then getting frustrated because I am not sure what my fingers were doing and I tried again and made the beautiful ones that are displayed in the picture. That is the story behind the sushi picture. It was a mobile moment because I took it with my IPhone, when I had an IPhone 3G this was three years ago. I was a little behind the trend because it was when everyone was carrying a 5C IPhone. This was even my last photo I took before getting my new phone, so it was much more than just sushi picture to me, it was a way of saying goodbye to the best shaped IPhone that was every created.

    The Problem with Teen Shows

    The Problem with Teen Shows

    On a weekend when I do not have expected plans, I like to sit down and watch teen shows because of the drama that occurs and the dramatic events that happen, but let's face it the teens in shows are sometimes annoying. I have watched Pretty Little Liars, Riverdale, Vampire Diaries, and Gossip Girl. I like to watch the stories unfold and sometimes scream at the characters for being mind-numbingly stupid. So I will now, take each show one by one and explain why these shows and characters are not good for the teen hearts.
