Hey guys, I am the small town girl that moved to NYC to follow her dreams to be a writer.
7 Photos of Nature That Brings Beauty To The World
#1: New Resie Partial View If you have read any of my stories or know me, you would know that I am from southern Illinois. I never used to think of it as being so very different than other places in the United States until I started to see the world for myself. This picture is of a small lake that we call the New Resie. It's slang we came up with for the New Reservoir. When I went to write this, I realized I had no idea how to spell our slang word. Did it have an "ie" at the end? Maybe a "y"? What about a "z"? Did we just randomly add a "z" to it? So I did what all curious people do now a days and Googled it. I went through 5 different websites. Not one of them had our slang word. There were 10 different common slang words for Reservoir, but not one of them was what I grew up saying. One was pretty close, res, but it just didn't sound right to me. Google wasn't being of much help in that area, so I changed my search. I looked up this lake to see if anyone called it by it's southern name in google reviews, but do you know what happened? Google said that this lake didn't even exist. I grew up going to this lake and watching my dad leave for an early morning fishing trip here. It wasn't that far from our house and we had been out on it more than once on a boat. My dad would go ice fishing here. It's well known to me and I thought everyone else in this area, so why hadn't google ever heard of it? I still was determined to figure out how to spell our slang. My dad and mom didn't know, so I had to turn to Facebook. There I found out that we made it up so however I want to spell it is fine. So, this is a photo of the New Resie in southern IL. Do not ask me what town it is in, because I will have to go through the same research to find out that it is not in a town at all.
Dear Mom, I do not know if you want this to be public for all to see and for it to be judged for a writing competition, but I want to share with the world how much you mean to me! You mean more to me than I show, and I am sorry for not showing sooner how much I love you.
Finals week! The hardest week of a college student's life. The week that drives you mad. When I say mad. I mean crazy. Full on crazy. We are stressed beyond our limits and try our best to be okay, but really we are not okay until this week is over and our summer has officially started.
Random Shoes On The Subway
Have you ever just taken photos of shoes that are being worn by people on the subway? I find it very interesting what type of shoes someone wears. It tells a story that no one knows but the owner. It shows where they have been, how much they work, how far they go, how much money they have, how much they value brands and much more. If you really think about it, it is amazing to know all the stories a shoe can tell.
