Hey sorry I’ve been kinda inactive.
Lately I have been into slam poetry. There’s this really cool organization called Get Lit that teaches kids slam poetry. I found it because of this really inspiration video that you should all go watch. Anyway, today I wanted to write down how I am feeling, but instead I wrote a poem. I don’t know if you will understand it, but that’s ok. I hope you can get something out of it.
I am a Clown
Remember when we all used to laugh together?
I haven’t seen that man in months.
Where has he gone?
Sometimes we see a glimmer,
Slow to come and quick to disappear.
My room is messy,
Cleaning it is an option,
But then when I am done I would have to face the real mess.
So instead I am here.
Trying to feel something,
My heart numb.
And here I am.
Cracking jokes for the crowd,
Hoping someone will laugh,
For human connection,
Trying to ignore the sadness that is eating my bones,
Building a mask of laughter until I don’t remember who I am anymore,
And struggling to break out yet
I can’t stop.
Well, it’s been a roller coaster. But I think I am okay now. Honestly. For the past few years I haven’t known who I am, what I believe in, and what my morals are. And over the past year, I think I have figured it out. I would never say it was a good thing… Continue reading I’m Finally Okay
Has anyone else heard about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? I’m sure every Potterhead has. I classify myself as a low-key Potterhead; I’m not really part of the fandom but I looooove Harry Potter. So, JK Rowling announced that she is publishing the script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, because only rich/famous… Continue reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Hey guys. Before I get to the good stuff, let me give you some background info. I go to St. Joan’s Academy (that’s a made up school btw), and most of my theater-friends go to Pendleton (another made up school.) Our basketball teams had to play each other today in a tournament. Our first game, which… Continue reading I Feel Awful Right Now
So a while ago I told you I was going to a different country on a class trip. The city was awesome! I love learning about different cultures and being exposed to them. However, my classmates totally ostracized me. (Unit 6 vocab word- to outcast*) Since I was in a foreign country, I didn’t stand… Continue reading My Trip
I’m feeling inspired. That’s right, inspired. My teacher lent me this book, Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. It was awesome! I wouldn’t say I’m good at art, but it is something I enjoy doing and I would like to do more of it! And this book is for anyone, not just artists. I… Continue reading That’s right, Inspired
Hello! So I had another idea for a post, but I really need to write about my day, so I think I’ll post that tomorrow. Today started out great! After I slept in, I ate breakfast and ran on the elliptical. I’m really proud of this because I find it hard to motivate myself to… Continue reading Today
