Whoopsy Daisy

Well I was supposed to be posting so much more than this, but I got busy with  school and I haven’t been able to find the time.  To be honest, I could make the time, but I just haven’t done it because I kind of forgot all about the blog.  I was very into it when I first started it because my Uncle said all these great things about how much I could make.  But then, I don’t know, I jut lost sight of that.

School has been a real hassle, but I am trying really hard every day because I want to get great grades this semester.  It’s really important to me, and I know that it would make my parents proud.  I am learning about site explorers in my computer science class, because it’s like a web-design class that I Was able to get into.  I started late in the year, but I don’t care because at least I get to learn some of it.

My uncle says it will be awesome for me.  I was listening to some podcasts today by this guy that created moz.com.  Here you can see the site at moz.com and it’s pretty incredible.  It gives you a whole bunch of stats on different things that happen with the website, and it keeps a catalog of every major website that is in the world.  It’s kind of like google, except you don’t search Moz like google does to find a page that is relevant.  It will search it, but only to find the name.  That way you can find out cool information about your competitors.

I plan to do start using this stuff and really learning how it all works. I figure if I can learn how ones work that really are doing well, then I can use that to my advantage, when I want to really do my own.

What a day

Well at least school is out.  I am glad I don’t have to go back until after the new year.  I am dreading the fact that my grandmother is coming though, that part is yucky.  I hope that she doesn’t kiss me like she always does.  It’s so gross, and her clothes always smell like mothballs.

I heard that you can use mothballs to get rid of snakes, I wonder if that is true.  I don’t think it is, but who know really.

I am going to go to my boyfriends house tonight. I can’t wait to get there.  I wonder if anyone will ever read any of this, I hope not because that would really be embarassing.  But I am not using my REAL name anyway so I guess it will be alright.

Do you want to visit my uncle’s website?  He is a blogger and he is the one that started me doing this.  You can see his personal blog at dontpunchaclock.blogspot.com he told me he would help me do this, and he said I ahve to write about things I am passionate about.  I don’t know what to write about yet, but I am just going to write something each day and see how it goes.  He says he makes money doing it, but I have no idea how.  How can you make money from someone just typing stuff for people to read on the internet?  It doesn’t even make sense! I tried to read some of the things he talks about on there, but I am lost. I will have to get him to explain it more to me the next time he comes over.

Bye for now, going to get out of here and have some fun!

Gardening is Fun

I love to garden.  I am not very good at it, but it is really great when you put something in the ground and it grows grows grows!  I have been doing it for 5 years now since I was like 6 years old, and sometimes the plants come out really good.  My mom always helps me though.  She likes to use the food to eat because she says that it is a lot better than the food that is bought at the store.  I like it too, it’s healthy and delicious.

My mom picks the things we use, and she always picks scotts fertilizer for the vegetables.  I heard something at school that scotts fertilizer was terrible so I decided to check it out for myself.  I read a bunch of stuff and I couldn’t believe all the things that are going on about fertilizers and genetically modified organisms and all this other stuff.  I asked the teacher at school and apparently this company monsanto had done some terrible things to farmers.

they made there own seeds which make it so the poisons from the week killer they make doesn’t hurt them, and that would sound great, but they made it so that you can only use their seeds.  They have a patent on the seeds and you can’t collect the seeds when you are growing the crop, and then you have to buy them every year instead of being able to collect the seeds from the plant.

But that’s not the worst thing about it, the worst thing about it is that if you grow your own plants close to someone else that is growing monsanto, then the crops can get pollinated by the wind and the company can sue you because there plants got into your plants somehow.  I don’t even really understand it, I want to ask my dad about it when he comes home.

I found out about fertilizer a little bit more too.  I went to this site I found on bing called http://fertilizernumbers.net and it tells about how the fertilizer numbers on the package work.  I still don’t entirely understand it, but I want to read more about it on the internet or at school.

That’s enough for now, I will try to write more about it if I find out.

The Ways of The World

I have had such a hard time in my life figuring out the way the world works.  My boyfriend is always unhappy and it seems anything I do is never ever good enough for him.  I wish that I could get my stuff together and do better each day, but so far I haven’t been able to.  I sure do hope that things start to look up for me because I am getting tired of the same ol same ol.

Have you ever felt that way?  I bet you have, I know that it’s a pain in the butt when you feel this way, but sometimes that’s the way it goes.  I have been seeing my psychiatrist just to talk to her and see if she can help me out.  She wants to give me medicine but I don’t really want to do anything like that.  I don’t know if I start taking the medicine maybe it can help me.  I am not sure though because I don’t want to start taking it and have the bad side effects either.

My brother died last year in a car accident.  Ever since that happened I have been feeling this way.  I feel like there is nothing to live for.  One day things might start to look up though, if I just keep praying.  Church has been the only place that I can find comfort.  I know that things are going to get better and that I will miss my brother less and less as time goes on.  At least that’s what they say, though I have to admit I don’t think I will ever feel that way.  I hope that I can get myself going on a better road soon.  School is going well, I just have to stick with it.

Anyway that’s my feelings for the day.  Anyone who cares to read them can read them.  I am just doing this as a therapuetic exercise.  Lets see how well I can stick with it!
