Making Life Easy


What would you do if life had an easy button? If only all the pain and misery of life could be whirled away with the touch of a button. Unfortunately, we can’t always take the least difficult method to get out of that jungle of chaos and stress. In fact, that is what most attracts us to life: the adventure, the dare-driven stunts that keep us out of a world of complete boredom and dullness. Now that Winter Break is in effect, that is what this world has turned into: a shriveled up mess of unaccomplished, bleak, labor-less people who stay home all day and play games or watch movies. Winter Break is when the easy button comes into effect at full-throttle: relaxing people to a level way below the standard, causing them to procrastinate, become lazy, and ignore work when we come back in the New Year. I’ve been a victim to this labor-free routine for quite some time, and I hope that blogging will help keep me on track and disciplined so that I don’t get smacked with an overload of stress when I return from break. At its zenith the easy button would destroy the work ethic of humanity. At a lower setting, it would keep workers from going insane, which makes it welcomed quite sparingly in the form of a weekend. Although it is powerful when used, the easy button would be beneficial to our world, especially for over-worked people who wake up before the crack-of-dawn and come back late at night, exhausted. Let’s all ease life down a little bit.

Interior Design (I’m Finally Back!)

I would like to start off by saying how glad I am that Winter Break has started. It seems as though it has been on everyone’s mind for weeks and finally the day (or more accurately week) has come for celebration. So far my break has been quite hectic because of my move. I am proud to announce that we have finally settled in and I am thankfully starting to enjoy the comfort that this house has to offer. I never realized how much I adored the power of internet until I was stranded without it for a couple of days. Luckily I found things to keep me occupied. I started to decorate my walls and put lights up around my room and it is starting to feel like my own private paradise.  In a tragic way I was reminded of when I was decorating my igloo on Club Penguin: I think that is what started me to have interest in interior design, quite sadly. Well, to continue, it was a nightmare having to go through all the boxes and picking out things from the large assortment. After countless experiences, I’ve realized that the greatest thing about a bedroom is a theme that is clearly visible, since it electrifies the personality of the one staying in the room. I know it seems a bit odd to pay so much attention to a single bedroom, but I found that it was worth it in the end. I have to admit that I am a huge fan of everything tropical and beach-y, and this part of me is reflected on the walls and shelves of my personal space. Over the years I have collected wall ornaments and other decorations in the shape of palm trees, fish, dolphins, surfboards, and islands. I’ve always felt this warm sense of comfort when I decorate like this. It helps, especially since we are in the dead of winter. I think everyone ought to find something to spice their surroundings up with. Just be creative! Here’s a picture of my back wall of my room:

Anyway, Christmas has just passed, and I’m sorry I wasn’t there to make everyone’s holiday wishes come true on account of my lack of internet. I hope everyone had a nice time with family and friends this season. and I hope everyone is excited for New Years as much as I am! Can anyone believe that a new decade is coming? 2010 all the way!
