First and foremost I need to say this is by far my favorite Daily Create. This is due to the fact, I have an app called “Brides Throwing Cats”, yes it’s a real app and yes I have it on my phone (no shame), along with many other pointless apps. If you want to download this app click the download link here (It will take you to the I-tunes app store).
I always put things off; I consider it my biggest sin and most holy virtue. I made up in my mind that today would be the day I would finish my paper for my Animal Behavior course. The topic? Bees. Yes, I had to talk about those little fuzzy, annoying, and surprisingly helpful things that make honey. Let’s see I am on paragraph…one, okay not far along. But how am I supposed to write five whole pages on “Colony Collapse Disorder- the Bee’s plague”? It’s not the most thrilling topic of any conversation “Oh yes it’s an unknown disorder which makes honeybees die by the bunch and it could affect our economy.” I looked at the lonely paragraph on my screen and decided just maybe one more little break wouldn’t hurt anymore. Certainly not any honeybees. I looked at my phone which is attached at the hip, one new message, ugh- it’s nothing just from my sister who seemed to send me fifteen text messages full of flower emoji’s gushing how “great” her boyfriend is- okay that’s enough messaging for me. How about the world’s biggest time waster? Facebook. I logged in, no surprise here- summer trips, pictures of family, and weird like page suggestions. Woah, my brother actually posted something- “WTF?! Check this video out!” with words like that he must charm the pants off girls. I clicked the link to the video- oh it’s a cat playing a piano. It’s kind of cute. Alright, time to log out of Facebook. What’s on Reddit? Let me check. Hmmm…I scrolled through the page, NSFW pics…no, thank you. There’s nothing. On the side bar I saw “15 Biggest celebrity Photobombs- the Funny Faces of the A-listers!” okay that looks good no matter how stupid it is, I got a bad case of click bait. Below that link was an article “Get rid of 60 pounds in two days” , well considering I’d have to cut off my arms and legs for that to happen and the picture is badly Photoshopped, I think on pass and not fall victim to click fraud. I looked through the photo bomb list, it was alright, not as good as I expected. Oh well. Where else to look? How about CNN? Let me do that. Nope, there’s nothing on here I want to read. Articles among articles on politics, the economy, and net neutrality. I should stop stalling; I need to finish this paper. Okay, time to write the best paper of my life.
Before I could type one word, I heard my mother call from downstairs.
“Dinner is ready! I made chilaquiles!” She yelled upstairs.
“Sorry mom, I have to finish something,” I yelled back down.
“I also made coffee and crema!” She yelled back up.
I looked back at the screen. Work or food?
“After dinner, I swear I will finish this paper.” I said.
I guess he should be put on display at the MoMA!

What would I do if there was no Internet?
Hide in a safe place because the world is probably in apocalyptic mode. Yes, I’d move to a barren place, where no one in their right mind would go…perhaps the Australian Outback?
No but in all seriousness, I think in the extreme situation where the internet was no more, people and governments everywhere alike would scramble (calmly, of course) to try and put up and Internet 2.0. Looking around at other people’s thoughts about this scenario I’d have to agree- the internet is such a staple to how humans interact, learn, and develop. I wouldn’t even be surprised if there was a sort of back-up plan if this were to ever happen? Quite possibly.
Either way, I think we can all agree, if the internet were to be down, and re-launched, can it have a cool or catchy name??
I’ll start brain-storming for a name.
You how the old saying goes:
A memory that’s so vivid,
it felt like it happened just
the other day.
A shy girl walking into a new place,
a huge building.
Exchanging nervous smiles and waves,
to potential friends.
Looking around like a lost child
looking for their mother,
Trying to find out where the English classroom was
and getting lost in the process.
So excited, yet so worried
with what high school would bring.
There I was a little freshman
Who thought she knew everything.
I’m glad I was wrong.
While high school was never my fondest childhood memory,
the lessons it brought to me
will hold a place in my heart.
Always appreciate the past,
look forward to the future,
but most importantly-
Enjoy the present and
always be yourself.
“Oh…it’s you again.”
Nice to see you.
Actually, I was kidding- I hate you.You make things difficult for not only me, but everyone.
You make things difficult for not only me, but everyone.
You drag people out of bed.
You make people angry, bummed out, stressed,
Or all of the above.
It’s hard to like you,
Because there’s not one redeeming quality I can think of.
You are horrible.
So I’m going to have to ask in the kindest way possible…
Can you please go away Monday?
Yes, I among many others don’t take too fondly to Mondays, but this Monday, I wanted to take a moment to thank those in military service to put their lives on hold and put their lives on the line to protect our rights. Happy Memorial Day.
The weather is amazing out! I took the liberty to help my mom outside today, in addition to getting some much-needed Vitamin B considering the fact I look like Caspar the Friendly ghost’s long lost sister. Also, I got a new cactus- I named it George (Yes, I am one of those people who name their plants). Anyways, I hope and wish everyone had a lovely Sunday! Relax!
The theme for daily create today seems to be relaxation so…
The girl ran away from her small, quaint, southern Oklahoma shack- vowing to never look back. She kept running until she could no longer see the remnants of her that boring little town located in the middle of nothing.
At around two p.m. in the afternoon, the girl finally stopped running. She sat among a barren field under the summer heat to catch her breath.
“I guess I’m gone.” She said.
