Why You Need to Care
If I could, I would sit on this laptop all day and preach to the human race how important it is to care. To care about the resources we use, to care about the effects we have on our planet, to care about the consequences of our convenience mindset actions but I would get nowhere. I would get nowhere because you don’t know why you need to care. You need to care because the amount of plastic we have produced in the first 10 years of the century is already surpassing the amount of plastic humankind made in the last century. In these past 8 years, that number has almost tripled. We are producing and using plastic at an alarming rate, with no regards to how this is affecting our present and our future.
How I Became More Eco-Friendly
When I really started hitting this "produce as little waste as possible and make environmentally friendly choices" journey, I got a lot of strange looks. Since I was young I was "weird" about the earth, as my mother would say. I would make minor environmentally friendly choices, such as recycling when I could and not using plastic bags, but I was so young I thought I couldn't do much more. This thought stuck with me for a while.
10 Ways to Be More Eco-Friendly
This is my statement. We have one shot to make the planet one we can strive on and live on for all our years to come and the generations behind us. I have taken the plunge to live a minimal waste lifestyle. This includes replacing my plastics with bamboo, recycling the containers in which my groceries come in, refusing bags when I shop, and using reusable cups and containers for my guilty Starbucks pleasure. The trash we have produced has created TWO vortexs of TRASH in the Pacific Ocean!
The Miles on My Car
I bought my first car when I was 20-years-old. It was a 2011 Mazda3i Sport with a pearl black finish. I purchased it for $12,000: my largest purchase yet. What I didn't know at the time was that it was going to be the vessel that would be with me as I reached many major milestones in my life.
If You Haven’t Read Harry Potter Here Is Why You Should
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone came out June 26, 1997. I was a fresh two-year-old at this point in time and didn't pay much mind to it. When I was just a little bit older, I remember spending the night with my uncle and waking up to him watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I remember it so clearly because I took one look at the screen, saw the basilisk and immediately left the room. Still a little too young.
Why Do I Settle?
Often times I find myself in the rawest moments of a breakup, or the end to an almost relationship. The moment where you are alone, left to realize that there will be no more late night calls, or constant text messages, no more partner in crime or a reliable movie date. In these moments I am alone, I really allow myself to feel. Not the muffled feeling where you keep quiet and have to plaster on the brave face so your roommates don't worry again. No, this is the feeling of complete despair, crying as I wish, throwing what I please, screaming what I desire.
All the Questions You Have About an Escape Room
Yes, working at an escape room is the best job we have ever had. It is loads of fun and we get the opportunity to meet a wide variety of new people and if we're lucky, plenty of chances to travel. These are all the questions I get on a daily basis, answered. Here's the inside scoop.
Upon falling for someone, you fall for their entirety. You fall for their body: how it moves, how it operates, how it feels next to you and away from you. You fall for the placement of their hands on the small of your back; during a loving embrace, an "I missed you" embrace, and apologetic embrace and an "until next time" embrace. You fall for the way their clothes hang so delicately over their fragile body and the way their hair hangs so helplessly over their porcelain face. You fall for their words. You fall for the way their words read, the way they sound, their ability to enter your mind so forcefully and how they refuse to leave you. long after they have left you. You fall for the way those words curse you with love, or bless you with hate. You fall for their poison, the taste of infidelity staining their lips for the rest of eternity. You fall for the lies you pray aren't real. you fall for the hurt because falling for a hurt you know so well is easier than falling for someone new. Eventually, you fall for a made up character. It is someone you can see, touch and feel but it is someone you do not know. Not anymore.
