Because could not stop for death

While in the carriage they pass the school where children played, the field of grass and the sunset. The house is a burial house, the cornice of the roof is on the ground and the house is her grave. That is why it is the burial house and why it is swelling from the ground. She is talking about her dying and that she is okay with it.

Sonnet 73

He can see the fire in him, the twilight of day, and the ashes of youth

The speaker understands how the beloved views his age.
 I think that every time there is a comma it should be a new line. You are already supposed to take a breath at a comma so it would make the most sense to just make a new line.

social media vs. college

Image result for social media and college admissions
I believe that social media and school should be separated, kind of like separation of church and state. On social media, many people state their beliefs and thoughts, and schools should not decide on someone's opinions and thoughts. They should be more focused on their grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities.  I do agree with the saying "sometimes kids are worried more about being a character than having character." I feel like many people do and say things to get attention or get the room filled with more energy. I feel like high school isn't doing much with social media to get us ready for adulthood and college. If they wanted to help prepare us they should be having high school coaches looking at the athlete's social media before allowing them to be on the team.

Loveliest of Trees

The speaker goes to see the cherry tree in the spring. I believe this is an elderly man and he goes to see the tree at different times of the year just to try and bring back the memories in case he doesn't make it to spring to see the blooms again.

Junie B Jones and the stupid smelly bus

This was the very first junie b jones book i read and i  instantly wanted to read all of the other ones. She is forced to ride the bus with a smelly bus driver and mean kids. I was drawn to this book because i hated riding the bus as a kid and i didn't like anyone on the bus with me. This has became a long term memory because it was the first chapter book i ever read and i loved it. Once she is stuck riding the bus she realizes its not that bad and there's no need to be so upset about it.

Money

Money helps motivate me to do things i don't want to do. I've been really good at saving my money because i'm focused on getting a car. Now that i have one im saving my money for gas and insurance. Ive always been good at saving my money because i always have something big that i want. When im older i want to become a nurse anesthetist, they get paid very good and i want to be able to make enough money to support my family. Money is very important to me because it creates opportunities for school and jobs. I mean im still young so i dont worry about money too much yet and i dont think about it much. I think everyone is so worried about money that they forget about everything else, they forget to enjoy what they have and the things they can do.

No Christmas, Niclothilius day.

It is now the 20th of December, otherwise known as Niclothilius day. On this day, you are expected to eat nothing but junk food. Absolutely no vegetables, no fruit, and no milk. You are allowed to have water only because its required for your health. You are expected to spend the day with family and friends and tell each other stories. You're also expected to watch at least one movie, and create your own tradition. If it's going bowling, or shopping or having a big party, whatever you enjoy doing the most. You're also expected to make at least one difference on this day, such as buy a stranger a meal, or adopt a stray or help a homeless man. Just one little thing to make someone's day a little better. On this day, all crimes are totally off limits, if you are charged with something on this day it is automatic death penalty. This is a day about being good and making the world a little better and a little less damaged. In my family our tradition is to make a big table full of food, we have popcorn with lots of butter, ice cream, chips of all kind, many different sodas and juices, lots of dips for chips and crackers, and lots of candy. We then all gather up in the living room and watch our favorite movie. We then all load up into my car or the van and we head to whatever restaurant we are hungry for and after our meal we choose one table to pay for, we always watch who comes in and how they act before we choose. We like to think that we help someone that really really needs it or someone that could use just a little good in their life. Then after we pay for our food and another tables we head to the beach to see how the waves are, if there are any. By then it is late afternoon and we head back to the house to clean up our mess and relax for the rest of the night. This is one of my favorite days of the year, i remember last year was a little scary because we had witnessed a man stealing from meijer, he had gotten tackled but was still fighting back so they executed him then and there. There's really not many people that do things on this day because they know the consequences, there have only been 6 crimes on this day in the past 10 years. I will always love this day due to the calmness and happiness that is always experienced and thriving throughout the world.
