Scuba

For my Environmental Science class I have the opportunity to do scuba diving as part of a research project. I get to train to be a certified diver and have the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone while having fun with my friends. I’m excited to try something new, but I’m also a little nervous to be that far underwater. I know anything can happen and I’m worried that by some weird occurrence I will freak out underwater. I feel like I just need some reassurance that I will be fine. Maybe its just my paranoia kicking in.

Musical Personalities

I have been told that you can tell a lot about someone’s personality based on the music they listen to. I’m not entirely sure if this is true, but I know some people judge others based on it. Since I don’t judge a persons personality based on what music they listen to I don’t have many “stereotypes” for what kinds of music match certain types of people. The only ones I can come up with are:

music

1. People who listen to only top 100 music are either middle schoolers or people who try too hard to fit in
2. People who listen to depressing hipster music usually need to talk about their feelings
3. People who listen to hard core rap are scary on the outside but funny on the inside.
(Note: This is all based on my experience I could be totally wrong in someone else’s eyes.)

Valentine’s Day

Well Valentine’s Day is this Friday and we all know what means! Lovey-dovey couples enjoying their lives and bitter single souls celebrating singles awareness day. But I think that Valentine’s Day can be celebrated by people in either situation as a day to just feel good and be happy. Some people get too caught up in all of the expectations of love day that they can’t even enjoy themselves. Either coupled people freak out about getting the right gifts or single people are off by themselves being sad about being alone. Sometimes I think that’s all Valentine’s Day is about: the expectations. Some people expect too much from their significant other and are disappointed when things don’t go the way they want. Single people also usually dread Valentine’s Day complaining about how alone they are, when in reality once the day is over they forget about their initial dread and move on with their lives.

But I find it interesting that people don’t really worry about Valentine’s Day until they start high school. When we were kids the only things we cared about on Valentine’s Day were the chocolate and classroom parties. We enjoyed the holiday because it was just that, another holiday. A day to celebrate love and love for others, not a day to shoot hate rays at anyone in a relationship. Just remember to enjoy yourselves on Valentine’s Day and be happy for the couples around you! Have a great day!

Frozen: The Movie

I added The Movie to the title because it looked incomplete being called just Frozen. Yes I am going to review the movie Frozen. I am probably one of the last people to see this movie, and I feel that because I saw it so late that it ruined the effect the movie had on me. Before going to the movie my friends hyped it a lot; telling me that it was amazing, they sang all of the Frozen soundtrack songs, and some girl in my math class blurted out a big plot twist from the movie. I went in expecting a lot from the movie and I believe that it delivered everything I thought it would, but part of me feels like because I already heard so much about the movie before I saw it, I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I could have. I didn’t leave the theater completely overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the movie, which I was a little disappointed about.
