Taking a Step Back

For this weeks blog I decided to look back on all of my posts so far and realize what I have learned from this experience as a “blogger”. Going into this process I didn’t really have any ideas of what I wanted this to be I kind of just wanted my blog to evolve naturally. I knew I wanted to interview my friends, family and people who inspire me to learn a little bit more about them.

Something that I was most surprised about was people’s initial reaction to the question, “If you had one day to live what would you do?”. Personally I thought this question sparked a thought that most people have never thought of before, because it is kind of a sad thing to think about. Almost every single person I interviewed was very taken back by this question, more than I was initially expecting. All of the responses I got seemed to have an underlying theme, stick to the ordinary days yet focusing on the things that make the person especially happy. That could either be doing their passion all day long or spending extra time with their friends and family going places they have never been before.

Throughout this experience personally I have learned many things about myself and my closest friends. It was a great way to connect many different people in my life through a single question. One of the most difficult parts about this blogging process is actually finding people to interview believe it or not. Mostly due to the lack of time in my week. During lunch is always a hard time because that is people’s time to relax and not really have to think and after school i go straight to dance. I could always have people email me but I like to talk to the person I am interviewing in person so I can really understand what they are saying and look at how they view their life.

From the Mountain to the Beach

For my blog this week I decided to do Megan Tighe. I have known Megan for only two years but since we have two classes together this year we have gotten a lot closer. She is so funny, beautiful and not to mention an amazing artist. She is apart of the Visual Arts and Design Academy (VADA) at Santa Barbara High School. She always makes me laugh and brightens my day. I wanted to add her to my blog because I knew that she would have a last day worth sharing. So this is what Megan Tighe would do if she only had one day to live:

If eye had one day to live I would first wake up in the morning and hang out with my family. It would be a nice sunny morning, not too hot, and eat some breakfast outside and play with my dogs. After breakfast I would have all of my good friends come over and we would just hang out in my room. We would then get in a car and drive somewhere like up to the mountains and sit there for a little while. After some time spent up there we would drive back down and we would go on a huge boat. We would jump off the boat and go swimming. On the boat I would want a really good band, like my brothers and his friends, playing some music and all of us in the back just relaxing and listening to the music. Maybe we would go the islands and run around. Then we would come on home and if I had a pool we would jump in that. We would then eat some dinner, something fresh and everyone’s favorite meal. After dinner we would go outside to this jumper that has a waterslide. Play on that and then we would go into my room where there is a whole bunch of big pillows and we would just get on the pillows under some blankets and fall asleep with my dogs.”
