Animals

For this week I decided to do one of my good friends Wilson Sherman. He is someone that I can talk to about almost anything and everything. We met this year and instantly became friends and just from knowing him for this short amount of time I know that Wilson is a very compassionate person. Another thing that I learned, and what you will soon find out from his response, is that he loves animals. He owns a total of 36 animals. He volunteers at a zoo, parrot rescue, aquarium and wildlife rehab center. He also has a blog but his is entirely about animals. I thought that Wilson would be a very interesting person to interview for my blog because of his strong views and love for animals.

If eye only had one day to live I would pet as many animals as possible. To do this I would just go to the Zoo, the Sea Center and pet like everyone’s dog. I would also probably go and pick up a bunch of trash and tell everyone to not eat meat. After that I would go pick up more plastic. I would also want to light Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on fire. I would want to give a lot of hugs. Lastly I would go outside swim in the ocean try to fight a shark.”

I really love how Wilson is incorporating animals into his entire day. That displays clearly  his love and compassion for animals. I also think that it is amazing that Wilson wants to try to save the earth even though he is only living for the rest of that day. You can tell that Wilson wants really wants to make an impact on the people around him, the world and for the future lives of animals. Everyone should learn from Wilson to make a difference on the world and everyone around you even if you only have one day to live.

Happiness

This week I decided that it is time to do my best friend. Cassandra Hughes. Although we have known each other for only 4 years, it seems like we have known each other our entire lives. We have been through so much together, from going to a Justin Bieber concert to starting high school together. I do not know what I would do without her because she is always there for me when I need her.

She had trouble answering this question so I first asked her, “what do you want to achieve in your lifetime?” and her answer was simple. “Happiness and I want to make other people happy”. Once she figured this out she started to describe her last day.

I’m gonna take you through my day. Morning time comes around I want to wake up at a good normal time like not too tired and not too over-rested, I would make a big cup of coffee, like really good cup of coffee, like the perfect amount of milk and coffee. I would sit down with my mom drink my coffee in pajamas in our living room, and it’s kind of weird because I’m describing a somewhat normal day. I guess I would just do the stuff that I usually enjoy. I guess I would tell every single person my true feelings for them, get everything off of my chest and make sure nothing is left unsaid. I would eat all my favorite food. Let someone know how I want my ashes to be spread. I know everyone else is saying be with their family but that is not the first thing that comes to my mind. I don’t know what’s wrong with me or if everyone else is lying. I would want to contact all of the people I have been afraid to contact. I’m actually super afraid of death. I don’t want to die. Ending my day sunset comes around and I would like go to eat dinner and have cheese and crackers for an appetizer. I like watching movies so I would watch a movie and then I would probably just like go to bed. I wanna feel like i’m not choosing to end it i just want to be content with what I did.”

Ordinary Days

For this week’s blog post I decided to do two people that are always inspiring me, two of my dance teachers, Kyleigh Carlson and Morgan Marsoobian. They are not only pushing me to be a better dancer but most of all constantly pushing me to be a better person. They are some of my biggest mentors not only in dance but in life and luckily I get to see them almost everyday. I have created relationships with both of them where I feel like I can talk to them about anything. I chose them to be apart of my blog because I wanted to know how they would spend their last day.

If eye had one day left to live, I wouldn’t do anything outrageous but instead would do all of my favorite ordinary activities to create an extraordinary day.  I love children, I love dance, I love God, I love my family and friends and I’ll say it, I love coffee, so my day would be filled with all of these things. I know I don’t get to choose what day it is BUT if I could, it would be a Sunday. I would start my day by going to church and worshiping with a body of believers. Then, because I would want to feel inspired on this day,  I would go to the dance studio and TEACH a class that really allowed my students to move and explore the space around them. Overflowing with inspiration, I would then want to TAKE a class where I had the opportunity to express myself to the fullest potential in a room surrounded by friends, love and free of judgement. The rest of my day would be spent with family and friends in conversation. All of my family would come together along with my childhood friends, high school friends and college friends we would all come together for a huge gathering. Laughter would fill the room, memories would be shared and love would be felt by all. I would want to spend a great amount of time reminding everyone around me what I appreciated and loved about them specifically and would make sure to share the beauty of God’s amazing grace and unconditional love with everyone around me. My last day would be an ordinary day filled with all the simple things that I think makes life extraordinary.”- Morgan Marsoobian

To be honest, my initial reaction was “well that’s morbid.” And then my next reaction was to chase time, and go to different parts of the world so the day would never end, but the more I think about it the more I realize how ridiculous that sounds and that I actually wouldn’t want to do that. If eye only had one day to live I don’t think that I would do anything drastic. I would probably first go into a dance studio and just be. As silly as it sounds, dance is and always has been my therapy. After the studio I would write letters to my loved ones with my hopes and wishes for them and memories that I am sure I would never forget. For the rest of the day, I would really just want to be around family. That is the scary part- knowing that you would never be able to touch them, hold them, hug them and kiss them again. If I only had one day to live, I would ask my three very best friends to be by my side in the dance studio, I would ask my dad to tell me stories of when he was my age, I would ask my mom to sing me You Are My Sunshine, I would ask my sister to go on a drive and get frozen yogurt, I would ask my sisters’ boyfriend to be his silly self because he never fails to have me in tears from laughter, and I would ask my boyfriend to hold me until it was time because in his arms is where I feel the safest.”- Kyleigh Carlson

Thank you for reading this week’s blog post! Comment down below what your “ordinary day” is?

Surfing the day away

For this weeks blog post I decided to do two surfers, Adam Hogue and Jace Kennedy. I figured that they would both have similar answers due to the fact that they are both surfers. They both had very simple answers but their answers mostly involved their passion, surfing. You can tell that both of them really love this sport because they want to do it all day everyday even if they only had one day left to live!!

If eye only had one day to live I would wake up really early and go surf uncrowded waves with my friends. I would then go eat a big breakfast and hang out with my buddies. In the afternoon I would paddle back out and surf until there is no light. I would then eat another large meal and go to a last day to live party with all of my friends and family.”- Adam Hogue

If eye only had one day to live I would probably wake up and go surfing first. I would then go spend all of my money and buy a new car. After that I would want to spend time with people I care about. To end my last day I would want to go surfing again one last time with my friends and then I would go buy some more stuff with some of the extra money that I did not spend earlier!!”- Jace Kennedy

Personally my family is very involved in surfing. My dad and brothers both had a passion for surfing as well creating a love for the beach within my family. Although I have only been surfing a very few times I admire the sport of surfing. It has so many variables that you can’t control. For example although you can go surfing a lot you can’t control the waves or the weather. It demands so much body strength and balance. Being a dancer you also need body strength and balance but you utilize those abilities in a very different way.

As you can tell from this post surfing is these boys passions, comment down below what your passion is and why you love it!!!
