Summer Vacation

Okay. I’m super sorry that I’ve been inactive lately, but my college courses take precedence before my blog and other writing.

By the time you will be reading this (Thursday morning), I’ll be in the car to visit my older sister who lives in Maryland, USA. I won’t be returning home until very late Monday night. I’ll try to schedule a post or two, but I can’t promise anything. The car ride down is 8 hours each way so hopefully, I can at least brainstorm some blog posts and maybe write a few. 😉

Anyways, I hope you are all having a fantastic week and enjoying summer.

Food for Thought

maxresdefault

I am currently taking an English class right now. My professor had us read an essay on the difference between high school and college. This question is one that I never thought to think of other than that college is super expensive and public high school is paid through taxes.

The text below is what I submitted for a grade. This is only a part of my answer that I submitted but still something for you to think about.

The main difference between high school and college is the thinking process. I briefly mentioned it above, but college professors make you think a lot more than high school teachers do. They make you think in a way that you aren’t used to. I think the best why to explain the thinking process is that high school teacher makes you think about one topic and everything about that topic. College professors make you think about one topic and then, how that one topic will affect other topics that are related to it. From then on it is a constant string of thinking, jumping from one topic to the next. Another major difference is that high school teachers are looking for the correct answer while college professors might call said answer wrong, but will help validate your answer and take time to understand why you thought your said answer was right. They are looking for the correct answer, but also are curious about your ideas on the topic.

So I am posing the question to you guys: What is the difference between high school and college? Please comment below.

 

Summer Classes 2017

online student

Hi, Friends!

Monday was the start of my online summer classes. You are probably thinking I am crazy, but I never said I was sane. 🙂 I will be working anywhere from 21 to 35 hours a week on this class. Hopefully, I will be able to schedule the posts ahead of time, but if not then you’ll know that I’m probably dying from the workload. I am taking an English course for five weeks then a Journalism course for another five weeks. I will be very busy this summer. Please let me know what YOU have planned for this summer in the comments below.

Much love,
Olivia

Stay Beautiful by Taylor Swift

large

This song was one of the first Taylor Swift songs I listened to, back in 2011 (when I first discovered her). This is an older Taylor Swift song, but I love it nonetheless.

Cory’s eyes are like a jungle

He smiles, it’s like the radio

He whispers songs into my window

In words that nobody knows

There’s pretty girls on every corner

That watch him as he’s walking home

Saying, “Does he know?”

Will you ever know?

My special someone has beautiful eyes and tells me things that no one will understand mostly because we are the biggest nerds on the planet earth. We talk and text for hours about everything. His smile is absolutely everything. Sometimes, I wonder if he knows that he so special.

You’re beautiful

Every little piece love,

And don’t you know

You’re really gonna be someone,

Ask anyone.

And when you find everything you looked for

I hope your life lead you back to my door

Oh, but if it don’t,

Stay beautiful

I want my special someone to stay beautiful. He is beautiful, smart, funny, understanding and everything in between. He truly will become someone amazing because he is already amazing right now. I am so grateful to know a soul like his. My biggest hope is after he has gotten where he wants to be, that he will remember me and that we will see each other again. I know he is really special, but I wish the rest of the world knew it, too.

Cory finds another way to be

The highlight of my day

I’m taking pictures in my mind

So I can save them for a rainy day

It’s hard to make a conversation

When he’s taking my breath away

I should say, hey, by the way…

My special someone always manages to make my day brighter and better. He is always the highlight of my day. I hope I’m not the only one, but I save our memories so when I am having a bad day, I can look back at them. When I am talking to him in person it is always hard to talk to him because he is constantly taking my breath away… almost to the point where conversations are hard to continue. I swear that my smile is ten times bigger when I am with him.

If you and I are a story

That never gets told

If what you are is a daydream

I’ll never get to hold,

At least you’ll know…

I doubt that anyone will know our love story or how much I care for him. I would like for him to know at some point how much he means to me.
