Advice and My Parents

Well this is Day 3 and 4 put together so yep.

My Parents
I love my mom and dad very much and spend a lot of time with them. As the youngest in my family I've been able to go on more trips with them than my siblings. So we've had some good times. :) They've always given me good advice and shared great stories with me. I look up to the both of them.

Advice I'd Give My 16 Year-Old Self......
Um well I'm 16 now so instead I'll give my 12 year-old self some advice.

  • The world does not revolve around you unfortunately.
  • Don't base your self-worth on your looks.
  • NEVER compare yourself to others.Your achievements are just as incredible as theirs.
  • Good friends are important.
  • No one cares that you have crooked rabbit teeth and fluffy bangs, so get over it.
  • People are mean sometimes but remember what Grandma would say. " Put some lipstick on and keep your chin up!"
  • Life is good so live it well. :)

The End

#3 Fears or Why I Have Issues

Day Two of the thirty day blogging challenge. Woooo going strong. :)
The challenge is to write about three legitimate I have and how they became fears.

1. Large Bodies of Water
I am terrified of the ocean, any large lakes, rivers, and ponds. I don't tell many people that because it's supposedly an "irrational" fear. But it IS rational, and I will tell you why. I went snorkeling on my trip to Hawaii a few years ago and was having a great time. I swam above the coral and felt confident until the reef ended. It was a straight drop off, the ocean floor was miles down. I panicked and couldn't breathe. My cousin came to my rescue but I've been scared ever since.

2.Being Alone
Yuck. I hate being alone just because there are too many things that could go wrong. I have this fear because when I was younger and home by myself I choked on Laffy Taffy and seriously almost died. But luckily I saved myself my ramming my torso into the counter until I threw up so yay! : /

GAH. They peck and scratch and attack and just no. Chickens are okay though, only because I grew up with them. I'm really not sure why other birds freak me out but whatever.
