Obscure Holiday’s: November

Published November 1, 2015 by GenYMission

Have you ever heard from some crazy friend that some obscure holiday is today?

“It’s National plush animal lovers day!”

“Today is national hug a tennis player day!”

“I think tomorrow is national dress like a nerd day… so.. be yourself!”

There are tons of Nationally obscure holidays like that and today, I am giving you the opportunity to be the crazy friend that mentions them. And also some ideas on how to celebrate them. (For November at least! Tell me if you like it πŸ™‚ )

November 2ndLook for circles day:Β I mean I suppose this sounds sort of lame, but imagine getting unnecessarily excited about it and pointing out random circles with an unnecessary amount of energy to your friends and acquaintances, and even strangers. The point is people will be happy you are putting in such an effort to look for circles. So happy that their happiness may bubble out of them and they will laugh. Bonus points if you wear a circle themed outfit!

November 3rd-Sandwich day: Eat a sandwich for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and a sandwich for dinner. Inquire what kind of sandwich everyone else is eating. If they don’t have a sandwich, ask them why “It’s national sandwich day, why would you skip a sandwich opportunity today of all days?” Switch the conversations back to sandwiches as often as possible.

November 7th- National book lovers day: Not too obscure but how cute is it they have a day for that. Read books. Talk about books. Adore Books. Be a book.

November 8th- Cook something bold day: Invite all your friends over for a potluck encouraging bold dishes. Or just cook something bold yourself. (What even is bold cooking? Eccentric? An extroverted dish? Spicy? This: Dish?)

November 13th- Sadie Hawkins Day:Β Wear Khaki pants. Dance. Ask people if they like your sweater. Listen to this song: Sadie Hawkins Dance

November 16th -Have a party with your bear day:Β Get a teddy bear and party. With balloons.

November 21st- World hello day:Β Learn hello in all kinds of different languages. Say hello to a bunch of people.

November the day after the day after thanksgiving-buy nothing day: Don’t buy anything.

I hope you enjoy celebrating these obscure holidays this month. πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading.

NaBloPoMo (That means “National Blog Post Month!)

Published October 28, 2015 by GenYMission

November is insane. Just a heads up. There are all kinds of different events that happen in November. Not including Thanksgiving and the fact that Christmas starts in November. (hahaha)

Any and every writing challenge to ever exist takes place in November. (Well, maybe not EVERY challenge) Most of you have probably heard of the crazy writing challenges that come up in November that just look like a conglomeration of random syllables. NaNoWriMo stands for National novel writing month. There’s also NaPlaWriMo (National playwright month) and (drum roll) National Blog Post month.Each of these challenges requires you to write something every day.

For the novel, your goal is to work towards writing a novel or work on a novel by writing a little bit every day. Same concept for playwright except you are writing a play. (shocker)

For the blog post however you have to publish a blog post every day.

I think I’m going to take part in the madness. (Not all of the challenges, I am not going for triple madness.) I think I will try and conquer the blog post challenge and publish at least one post per day.

Although if I miss some days, forgive me, because November is shaping up to be a pretty important month, school-wise. I’m working on my senior research project all through-out November. (We are supposed to find something we love and tie it into literature, exciting. I’m thinking of doing psychology and how it applies to the Harry Potter series πŸ™‚ ) The research project kind of takes priority over my blog, sorry guys. But I will try and do something most of the days.

Okay, well that’s all I have to say about the crazy writing challenges. Β Thank you for reading my readership! πŸ™‚

Soaring through the clouds

Published May 30, 2015 by GenYMission

today of as a fun day, more or less.

It was an adventure, I’ll give it that.

Last night I couldn’t sleep a wink. My nerves were too jittery or something and I ended up maybe sleeping for 30 minutes to an hour.

That tends to happen to me the night before a big important event (the first day of school, the last day of school, the day before a trip…)

Anyways, today happened to be the day I left on w trip. Not only that, it was my first time in an airplane ever!

I had very mixed emotions about this new realm of possibility.

I was obviously very nervy (my nerves were jittery, which seems to mean both nervous and excited) the night before. As we pulled into the airport I was still nervous+excited. We got through security easily enough and then had to wait for our flight.

It was somewhat torturous as I just wanted to be over with that already… Mostly because I hate feeling anxious and that feeling wasn’t going away.

Finally they called us onto the plane, (actually… It might have been a jet?) but we still had 20 minutes to wait and that dragged on along with my anxiety. 

And then we heard the announcer announce all of her flight announcements and the plane started growling, or purring or whatever (the engine started)

We started backing up, which of course was the perfect time for me to start giggling madly (do remember I was on minimal amount of sleep although I can’t promise I wouldn’t have done this anyways)

After backing up and turning around and a few more adjustments, the plane (jet) was on the runway and started moving quickly, which made me giggle even more madly realizing we were about to leave the ground (did I mention I’m kind of afraid of heights?)

It actually wasn’t too bad when the plane lurched into the air. I was still nervous for a few minutes after that, but then I just kept looking at the view and being happy.

At the first cloud we flew through, I appropriately exclaimed “we’re in a cloud!”

After a while I started taking a bunch of pictures, here are my favorites:


This was the first picture I took of a lovely cloud and some mountains. Also if you look closely at the jet planes wing, on the tip is a picture of a mountain goat thing πŸ™‚

That lake is shaped like a seal. I had to take a picture of that!

This was the coolest moment of the entire flight because I looked down and saw the shadow of the airplane on a cloud surrounded by a circle of rainbow! It was at this point I got excited and started take ng a bunch of pictures (we were in a mass of puffy white clouds!)

There’s the plane in the rainbow circle again! I suppose it could represent my fears as the shadow of the plain and God making it okay by surrounding them in a circle of rainbows. Which is like, peace I guess. Basically, protection. I really liked that I saw that. It was the highlight of the flight.

This is pretty

We were descending  at this point, and see a big pretty lake! πŸ™‚
Anyways, so that’s what happened to me today. That and a bunch of stuff that’s not nearly as cool as the flight. 

Thank you for reading, you’re awesome and beautiful! Bye!

Drive in movie, check!

Published May 25, 2015 by GenYMission

Considering this is the week that summer vacation starts, it was a totally fair thing to start my bucket list today!

(Not that it matters, I haven’t yet checked anything off the priority 25)

So today, I went with my mom to the drive in movies!

It was more comfortable than sitting in a movie theater.

Here’s the big screen (and our windshield was dirty)

We saw tomorrow land! Which was great, and inspiring. Not giving a way any spoilers.

Let’s see, did this make summer more awesome? Sure! Of course it did, it was a movie I could watch from the car.

Other than the fact that our car radio automatically shuts off about every 10 minutes, it was pretty great.

I noticed that it’s easier to sneak snacks into the drive in than the regular movie theater. Although, I don’t usually have many problems with that. πŸ™‚

Anyways, I did take (over) 10 pictures today to, so here’s a few lovely pictures of… Trees
