My family and I have recently started a yummy tradition that we love to do together. Yep, that’s right- a YUMMY tradition! It all started when my friend decided that she wanted to live at my house during winter break. Well, not literally live at my house, but spend the night almost every other day. This friend of mine happens to love desserts, so we decided to start a tradition where we try a new dessert place every time she comes over. We have tried everything from the traditional Yogurtland, to Sprinkles, to Confetti, to Creamistry, and of course Afters.

This week we watched yet another movie in English, The Seven Samurai. This time the movie we watched reminded me of my six close friends. Including me there are seven of us total. Yes, exactly seven, which happens to tie in perfectly with the movie. Just like the seven samurai, my seven friends and I have a special bond that makes us even more than friends. We are more like the seven sisters.
Everybody has a catch phrase. A phrase that they ALWAYS say. Ya know? (This is my catch phrase) I think that everybody’s catch phrase is unique to their personality and is like a trademark that people remember you by.
Last week was scorching hot! I got about five times tanner just by sitting in the sun at lunch. The heat was so horrible that it drained my energy and I couldn’t think or even move a finger!

I sat on the grass, staring at a fence with weeds crawling over the top, and three palm trees swaying from left to right in the distance. There are little plants growing around the trunk of two trees but one tree had not been invaded by the tiny green leaves. This tree stood out to me. “Is this what I’m supposed to notice?” I thought.

Stop trying to be somebody you’re not! Many times we are so worried about fitting in with the crowd that we change who we are so people will accept us. Ultimately, being yourself is the best person that you could ever be. Be yourself because everybody else is already taken.
Can you spot the three differences in these two pictures? I love playing these types of games! However, sometimes I focus too much on the tiny details that I forget to look at the big picture.
