THANKSGIVING

     So today is Thanksgiving, and I decided to write about what my family did this year! 

-2015 Thanksgiving-

     Alright, so I already said that today was Thanksgiving, so I'll than start off with saying how today went!

     So usually for Thanksgiving my family and I go to Seattle or California, and we have Thanksgiving with my parent's best friends. But this year we decided to stay home, and I was actually super exited about staying home. And now that Thanksgiving is done I can say that today may have been the best Thanksgiving ever!

     Today started off by my whole family sleeping in (which was lovely). My mom and dad then started cooking the food, and all that jazz. My dad then brought up the idea of going to see the new James Bond movie; Spectra. And we decided that it would be really fun if we went, because we all had been wanting to go! So we then went to the movie, and it was really good! But we all are pretty sad because it may be Daniel Craig's last 007 movie :(

     We then went home, and the intense cooking started. It started off with my dad making the cranberry sauce. Then my mom and I made the stuffing, potatoes and turkey! And my sister made the green bean casserole. It was quite a stressful experience, but overall it was pretty fun. 

     So then all the food was in the oven, and my family started to have some down time. My dad watched football, and my sister, mom and I decided to watch all the Thanksgiving friends episodes. BTW, my family and I, are huge friend's fans. And it was really funny because one of the episodes was making fun of Chandler and his cranberry sauce, so then my sister and I started making fun of my dad and his famous cranberry sauce. 

     It then rolled around to FOOD TIME! And my whole family devoured the food, in like fifteen minutes. My sister even started to get the meat sweats. And then my sister and I fell into food coma. 

     Then maybe one or two hours later, I went downstairs to grab a bowl of stuffing, because stuffing is definitely my favorite Thanksgiving food! I then grabbed my phone, and texted/called all my friends and family, and told them how grateful I was to have them in my life. 

     Overall today was a great day, and I'm forever grateful to everyone that is in my life.

Why I am who I am pt2

So here I am again, writing for my blog. For my last blog I wrote about a characteristic I have, which was sticking up for myself. And today I am going to write about another characteristic I have, which is...

-Escaping the Negative-


Escaping the Negative is not really a trait I have, but it is more a "thing" I like to do. Escaping the negative means, saying goodbye to the people/things that hurt you, or cause negativity in your life. I do not mean, if your friend is being mean one day to end the friendship, because I understand everyone has bad days, including myself. Though, if you notice a pattern with one of your fiends like: they're being more negative than positive, or everything is always about them. Then it would be time to end the friendship, and escape the negative. 


I have started to notice that since the beginning of high school I have had to end a few of my friendships, because of the negativity. And currently I am in the middle of putting an end to a friendship. It is really upsetting, but I know it is the best thing for me, because I have finally come to the understanding that you should not surround yourself with bad friendships. 


Throughout this year,  I have had to ask myself, what am I doing? If you keep doing this, then you're not going to have any friends? And it's true, if someone has a friendship that is unpredictable, or extremely unhealthy, and they come to their senses that the friendship is extremely negative, and they eventually end the relationship. Then they will have to suffer the consequences of feeling like they have no friends. But this is actually very untrue. I think once you escape the negative friendships, you will start to eventually feel like you have more friends. 


The reason I think that once you end an unhealthy friendship you start to feel like you have more friends, is because, the friends you have are ACTUALLY good friends. And by escaping negativity, you're just creating room for positivity in your life. And going from, more negativity than positivity, to more positivity than negativity, is truly a great feeling. 


I understand that it is extremely hard to stop being friends with someone, that you thought was going to be one of your best friends for ever. But something we have to understand is, having a small number of loving/positive friends is way better than having a large number of negative/fake friends.
