Memories

Awhile ago I got my first tattoo. I was excited and happy. Many people have tattoos now a days, they’re like little stories and memories to that person’s life. Mine means a lot to me, and each piece to it has a different meaning. The peace sign is for my Grandma, who I lost 4 years ago. She loved peace signs, and they were everywhere. The dream catcher represents me, the feathers that are free within this world and flow with the wind. The "Luv Ya" in the feather shows the bond between my Mother, my Grandma, and Myself. I love tattoos and how they can express yourself without saying a word. They make everyone even more unique. "Don’t judge a Book by its Cover."

The MidLife Pedicure

The MidLife Pedicure

It’s not as if our feet don’t age at the same rate as our bodies.  Consider all the wear and tear they get–probably the most of any part of us–and the fact that they’re probably low man on the totem pole when it comes to skin care.  It’s no wonder, then, that our feet start [...]

 

Seventeen

Seventeen

“Seventeen is just a test.”(Lyrics from the song “Seventeen Ain’t So Sweet” by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) Being Seventeen is just the warm up to being an adult. For me, seventeen was a huge eye opener, it made me realize life doesn’t get easier as you get older.  On January 5th, 2012 I will be taking the next step into being an adult. I can’t wait for all the new experiences of being a young adult. I know there will be many more hardships, but I will surpass them in the best way possible.

My Past Two Months

My Past Two Months

I haven't been writing lately. It's mostly because I'm so busy with school, family, and other activities. But I'll sum it up. A while back I went to this camp. We went zip lining, had a bonfire, played games, and met new people. It was really fun. My friend Julia and I went on a camping trip with my parents the weekend before that. We stayed in our RV for a couple days, up in Clear Lake. Although we didn't get to go see the Lake, we found other things to keep us busy.

A couple weeks later, we had our first Choir performance. We joined together with McNaire High School, and sang a variety of songs. In one particular song, the girls surrounded the audience and sang a song called Audiamos. Because the lights were off, every other girl held a candle. The show was successful, and many enjoyed it. It came around Thanksgiving time, and I was going to Washington to visit some family up there.

I know from experience by Kandis Mollring

I know from experience by Kandis Mollring

Hello, my name is Kandis I am a Jr at Lodi high school. Growing up was hard to do, and moving from home to home wasn’t helping either. I grew up in what they call a foster care system. A foster care system is a system made up of children whom biological parents could not take care of them, or orphaned. I was never teased about being in foster care, and if I was that would be very messed up. When it came to kids asking questions about my life, it was a little embarrassing to tell them. I would not tell them why I was in foster care but I would tell them other things.
