All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. -Charles M. Schulz
Oh my god this is so true! Chocolate and love go together very well! Happy almost Valentines day!
Though I may call many of my friends bro (“Sup bro”, “No bro”, “Yo bro” and any sentence I can add bro into), I only have one brother. Noah. He is two and a half years older than me. We have your average brother-sister relationship. If I say,”Hi Noah” at school, he says, “Shut-up midget.” or just the plain “No”. Although that doesn’t make much sense because I am taller then him. Now his words might sound, lets say, mean. But if you know him and speak his language, you’ll get it. Now I’m not fluent in it but I know that things that he says like “Shut-up midget” really means “Please be quiet, my dear sister” and when he says, “Hannah has no friends, it means “Hannah, I’m proud of how many friends you made at school”. Then there is my personal favorite:
Me: “Good night Noah, I love you!”
Him: “Yeah, bye”.
What he is really saying is, “I love you too, good night!”. So maybe it’s not every brother-sister relationship, but its ours. And I love it! I love him! November 15th, 15-years ago my “Dear” Brother Noah was born.
So Happy late birthday Noah. I love you!
It’s my favorite season, Fall. The weather is cool but sunny and just perfect. To me, Fall is a time for family and soccer. Two of my favorite things. It seems like everything starts settling down, the leaves fall and the kids go back to school. The last part is most of the reason that I end up spending more time with family. Everyone gets on a schedule and we work each other into ours. Plus during the summer everyone is so busy and we forget about each other. But it seem like in the Fall everyone slows down and starts thinking again.
In fall school starts again for me and all the other kids out there. Me personally, I enjoy school. I see my friends, I learn and I have some really fun classes. But it’s the things that come with going to school that make me wish the week was over. The things like getting up at 7:00 am and having an hour to two hours of home almost everyday. When you add that to my already crazy schedule, I have no time. I have soccer practice or a game at least three times a week and add-on my brother’s games I have to attend, everyday I’m at soccer. Then eating dinner and taking a shower, blow drying my hair, straightening/curling it and then sleeping. I have no time other than weekends.
Family and fun is saved for the weekends. On Saturdays I play soccer and either rest, do something fun or special or spend time with my family. On Sundays I sleep late, which is one of my favorite things to do. Most of the time I spend my Sundays with family. My weekends are defiantly my family and rest time. I think it’s that way for most people. I wonder if people spend more time with family on the weekend because they know they don’t have the time during the week with work and school. But during the summer people in general have more time so they kind of forget to put that time aside.
This weekend I had a soccer game and went to Hershey Park with my dad. The park was so quiet and it was perfect weather. Some of the great things about fall. Tell me, whats your favorite season and why? When do you find you spend the most time with family? Don’t be shy, please reply and leave comments below, I love me some comments.
So I have seen so many post about being a proud mother or a proud father or a proud grandparent. Well I’m none of those things. So I thought an appropriate name for this would be A Proud Friend. I think people forget about their friends when it comes to: what to post about. I don’t always think about an achievement of a friend as something to be proud of them for. But now that I’m spending the time to think about it, I am proud of them. All of them for different things.
At the moment I am over-the-top proud of my best friend, Ava. She recently started her own blog (Avasworldofava.com) and it is flourishing. She has been posting her FABULOUS drawings, some of which I can’t believe she did, but also her lovely writing. I am proud of her mostly for being runner up for the Poughkeepsie Journal’s Scary Story contest! She is an amazing writer and I am truly proud of her. I am proud of her in every way.
Now, I know I’m twelve, but I know the difference between being “proud” of some one and being “happy” for some one. I was happy for Ava when she discovered that she loved sports (I told her she would). I was happy for her when she started her first blog, and then again when she started her second. BUT I am proud of her for sticking with her third blog. I am proud of all the followers Ava has and every view she gets. And I am over-the-moon proud that she came in second for the scary story contest (not to mention that I edited it for her!) I am truly proud of my best friend, 10 years in the running.
Ava has been very supportive of me. She is a faithful follower and always comments. She has been there for me when I really needed her. Ava is definitely one of, if not, my best friend. We have seen the best and the WORST of each other. We can fight like a cat and dog, then we can make up and be best friends again. We have a bit of a competitive friendship so this happens often but we’re getting better at letting each other win. She is an amazing friend, and I can’t wait to see what else I can be proud of her for.
I am also proud/happy for my other friends: Maddie who came in first in the contest and Ali and Alex who got Honorable Mentions. All of the awards my friends won were under the 6-8 grade division. Our class took up all the spots for that division. Some of my other friends also made it on to the Poughkeepsie Journal’s site for their story’s covers. I don’t know if any of you remember, but I posted my scary story (Though the Woods) a while back. I didn’t win anything but I still had fun writing it and I hope you enjoyed it.

We all have a past, but this is the present, and baby, you’re my future.
I came up with this after watching a tv show and talking to my mom. I didn’t even realized I’d said something clever, till she said, “Wait, what did you just say?”. Tell me what you think of my new “Quote”!
